Reapportwnment Arizona's Government Faces Greatest Change in History Editor's Note: Will the specter of legislative reapportionment fade away if Arizona's 27th Legislature declines to come to grips with the problem at its session opening next week? By no means, says The Arizona Republic's veteran legislative reporter. This is the first article in a five-part series probing the dilemma, its possible solutions, and relating the state's problem to the national perspective. By BEN AVERY ARIZONA'S government is on the threshold of the greatest changes since it was organized 100 years ago in Prescott. Most of the pressure for change is the result of the rapid growth since World War II and conversion of the state's economy from the traditional copper, cotton and cattle base to a more diversified one includ- ing manufacturing, copper, agriculture, tourism and recreation, lumbering, livestocic and electronics. Growth encompasses imi-gration to Arizona of roughly one million new citizens in the past 20 years. Most of them settled in the Phoenix and Tucson areas to create two big urban centers. And the problems of steering the state through the first phase of this revolution apparently have been piled on the desks of incoming Gov. Sam Goddard and the 27th Legislature. REORGANIZATION of legislative representation and complete revision of the tax structure are atop the pile. Even before the U.S. Supreme Court decision year ordering both congressional and state legislative districts to be revised so citizens' political powers will be equal, there were rumblings in Arizona over the inequality of representation. As a result of those decisions, and the filing of a lawsuit in U.S. District Court last spring, the 27th Legislature has a mandate from the court to set up new districts for the election of Arizona's three congressmen, and for the members of both (Continued on Page 10-A, Col. 1) Malaysia Issue hes Sukarno UNITED NATIONS, N.Y.

Ambassador Adlai E. Stevenson issued a similar appeal to Sukarno from his Liber-tyville, 111., farm where he is vacationing. He said withdrawal from the United Nations could lead to catastrophe. It was the first such withdrawal in the United Nation's 19-year history. Western diplomats said that if carried through, the Indonesian move could have disastrous and far-reaching consequences for the world body, ahready wracked by a mammoth financial crisis.

Narasimhan at once called Thant, and the secretary-general fired off a cable to Sukarno asking him to reconsider his decision. The cable noted that 1965 is the United Nation's International Cooperation Year and said Thant hopes "your excellency's government would not think of withdrawing its cooperation from the world organ-lization."

Ford of Michigan is making a strong effort to win the Republican floor leadership from Rep. Charles A. Halleck of Indiana, who has held it for .six years. IN THE Senate, a three-way struggle is being waged for the post of assistant to Sen. Mike Mansfield of Montana, the Democratic leader. The combatants seeking to replace Vice President-elect Hubert H.

"I don't intend to be a second class Democrat," he said. "In a matter of a week or so I will reach a decision as to how I can best represent my people - as a purged or denied Democrat, as an independent or as a Republican." Williams declined to make any statements about hi.s future course. Their joint statement said the disciplinary action by the caucus was a "brazen effront to the thousands of good Democrats I who nominated us and elected us." , The two Southerners said they had no apologies to make for supporting Goldwater and would have done it even if they could have anticipated the "drastic ;action" in store fur them.
