18 The Arizona Republic Phoenix, Sat., Aug. 15,1970 Warnily, very warmly New Orleans greets Nixon Associated Press NEW ORLEANS — Construction workers wearing hard hats and carloads of young people warmly greeted President Nixon during his New Orleans visit yesterday. Nixon hopped from his limousine, before it left the airport, to squeeze children's hands and to get a handshake from construction workers. Large crowds formed §long the 18-mile route from the alfpert to the French Quarter hotel where the President met with representatives of seven southern states to discuss school desegregation this fall. A couple of Confederate flags flew along the route of the motorcade. Along Interstate 10, outgoing lanes were jammed. People stopped their cars to get a look at the President. The crowd sweltered in the a?<degree temperature on Canal Street, for more than a century the jugular vein, of the New Orleans Mardl Oras. The President sat atop his limousine, his gray suit soaked with perspiration. He rolled up the sleeves of his coat and shirt to shake hands. The cuff of his right sleeve fluttered just below the elbow. American flags waved by the hundreds as the crowds jammed against the car and diminished broad Canal Street to a needle's eye for the caravan. People hung over second story balconies when the President's entourage turned onto a narrow street in the French Quarter. But dissidents were out, too. Signs reading "Nixon Go Home" and "No Deal, U.S.A. Get Out Now— 5DS" were in evidence. But there were others that read "Execute All Protestors" and two groups got in a shouting match at one point. New Orleans jazg bands, led by trumpeter Al Hirt and clarinetist Pete Fountain, serenaded President Nixon with a rendition of "When The Saints Go Marching In." Mrs. Nixon looked very coot in a green dress despite the searing sun and walked behind the President a* he shook hands and signed autographs when he arrived at the Royal Orleans Motel. The President walked over to shake hands with Hirt and said, "Mr. Hirt has been to the White House." Then he motioned to Fountain and said "We hope you will come, too." Nixon jumped up on the trunk of his car to address the group clogging streets around the hotel. He reminded them that it was the 28th anniversary of V-J Day, the day the Japanese surrendered to end World War II. He declared his aim now was to "bring peace— a peace that will last."

Arriving downtown for his meetings, the President climbed atop his limousine and addressed the massed crowd with microphone in hand. He reiterated his hope for obtaining global peace, for ending sectionalism in the United States and for bringing the government closer to the people. "We tend to think too much section- ally," he said, without directly mentioning the desegregation issue. The President got in a small bit of Multigod theory favored by prof HONOLULU (AP)-Dr. Francis L. K. Hsu of Northwestern University says it is time for Christians to re-examine their assumption that there is only one God. Hsu, in a talk sponsored by the Kwan Yin Temple, said Western man should heed the multigod philosophy of China. "The Chinese have religious free enterprise," said Hsu. "They go where they can find the most satisfaction." The anthropologist said the Chinese approach their temples "as a Westerner approaches the supermarket." politicking with a warm endorsement of the all-Democrat Louisiana congressional delegation. "When it comes to the great issue of building a strong United States and those policies that will build a just peace, they do not think of themselves as Democrat* but as Americans first," Nixon said. The 'President had an extra word for Sen. Allen J. Eljender, D-La. He proclaimed the powerful legislator "Chef Supreme" during a flying ceremony on the trip south. On July 15 at the capital, Ellender hosted the President at a luncheon at which the senator served gumbo dishes, his cooking specialty. Members of the newly-formed Louisiana delegation to the desegregation advisory council said they were impressed by the President's firm tone on enforcement. Formation of the local committees was encouraged by the President's cabinet committee on desegregation. They are designed to step in before serious local reaction to integration develops. A primary purpose of the President's trip was to give the local committees greater visibility and prestige, White House aides said. The President encountered a few "Wallace for President" signs, Confederate flags and anti-war demonstrators during the motorcade. But there were many more "Nixon for President" placards and other signs of support.

Nader accuses state of properly tax 4 sham' George Nader, a candidate for the Democratic nomination for governor, yesterday termed "a clear cut example of political hypocrisy" a 55 cent reduction in the state property tax announced last week. Nader, speaking to a Democratic luncheon club at the Phoenix YMCA, said the citizenry knows the state admin* istration is playing politics with the state's most urgent needs. "Hie administration's failure to act on growing pollution, crime and juvenile problems will cost Arizona taxpayers more than $100 million over the next five years because of present neglect and the extra effort in money and time that will have to be ex- pended just to keep up," Nader said. The juvenile problem in Arizona is aggravated by the lack of implementation of procedures recommended in legislation when the Department of Corrections was created, he said. "The simple fact that Arizona does not have a correctional institution for girls is concrete evidence of the neglect caused by an administration whose primary motive is the vote that can be acquired through the bait of reduced taxes," Nader said.

Fillmore, traffic signal cleaner for thhe city's electrlca maintenance division, Visits every one of the city's Signalized intersections twice a year. His job is to replace bulbs in the traffic signals and to clean the r e f 1 e c t o f a and lenses so that motorists can see the signals more easily. "The biggest problems are the heat and the traffic," Frausto said. "It gets pretty bad when you're put there in the middle of an intersection and all that traffic and pavement," he said. "But I just keep on going and try not to mind the heat or even pay any attention to it I just drink a lot of water." The time it takes to service' the signal lights at an intersection varies, Frausto said, depending on the amount of traffic he has to fight. On some signals, which are on high mast arms, he has to edge his truck into the middle of the intersection and motorists are sometimes angered when he has to block a lane of traffic. On a busy day, it might take an hour for him to clean the signals at a busy corner such as Central and Indian School, he said. He might be able to finish the job at a less heavily traveled intersection in 20 minutes. Housewives, who might 'tea, anyone? GAINSBOROUGH, England (UPI) - Housewife Nancy Brumby spent about $125 on 800 packages of tea in the hope of winning a car in a contest. Mrs. Brumby was notified she was a winner — of a $20 transistor radio. wonder whether the city uses some miraculous washday discovery to get lens glass sparkling clean, may be disappointed to learn that Frausto uses plain glass cleaner, with liberal amounts of water. "We dry them with paper towels," he added in an attempt to offer a helpful hint. "You know," he mused: "I used to think they didn't haie to clean those signals. I mean I never thought about it. Now I've got this job and I know."
