However, if the session opening tomorrow meets but half of the pressing problems that face rapidly growing Arizona, it will earn a much more important place in the annals of the slate. Self - reapportionment must rank high on the list of difficult topics facing the 108 senators and representatives who make up the present legislature. They face a deadline set by a three-judge federal court to revise the district" they come from so they will represent people in the future, instead of land areas such as counties. THIS DEADLINE is 30 days after adjournment of the session, and failure to meet it would open the door to reap- portionment by the courts for the 1966 e'ections. But the reapportionment task in reality is just one of lawmaking procedure. Other problems go to the very root of Arizona's economic well-being. No doubt most of them will be Related Stories, Page IS-A the key parts of the program of a new Democratic governor who takes over the executive branch of government after six years of Republican administration. Gov. Goddard is expected to outline his program in an address to a joint Senate-House session shortly after noon tomorrow. MOST OF the state's problems are not new, however. They faced Republican Gov. Paul Fannin, too, during his years in the statehouse, and some were around even before he came. One of the oldest is Arizona's outmoded tax structure. For more than a decade, legislatures and executives have tried to shift the burden first this way, then that. But their efforts have failed to prevent the steady increase in taxes on the )roperty of homeowners, most-y at the school district level. The citizens of the state initiated action in this area last fall. The 26th Legislature had refused to act on the ground that nothing should be done until the current revaluation of )roperty is completed. This job las been in progress two years and is expected to take at least three more. THE INITIATIVE was taken away from the legislators with overwhelming voter approval of a constitutional amendment that, in effect, directed the lawmakers to change the present method of distributing state aid to schools. At present, aid is distributed on the basis of the number of (Continued on Page 8-A, Col. 2) It is Almost Post Time Phoenix Trotting Park WUl Open Tomorrow; fewest Sports Arena Held Boon to Economy By REVA BERGER When thfe dedication ribbon is cut at Phoenix Trotting Park tomorrow, Arionza will race into a brand new sports industry.

GENERAL INDEX Vietcong Methods Imitated By ROBERT TRUMBULL New York Times Service MANILA - Communist terrorism in the Philippine countryside is increasing ominously, according to official appraisals. The stepup in violent subversive activity has prompted the government to move 2,000 troops into Pampanga Province, the principal stronghold of the successor to the former Hukbala-hap organization. In the assassination of local officials and other terrorist operations the tactics of the resurgent Philippine Communists closely resemble the methods of the Vietcong in South Vietnam. At the same time, Marxists are heavily infiltrating intellectual, student and labor circles in Manila, officials say. Pampan^ provincial officials have listed 32 assassinations in-clu(Ung tiiose of two city mayors in the past year.

OFFICIALS said most assassinations occurred in the harvest months running from December to April when peasants usually have more money which Communists can extort. Some officials in Manila describe much of the violence attributed to Communists as mere banditry. Others say the government takes this line because an admission of Communist resurgence might be interpreted in this election year as failure of President Diosdado Macapagal's administration to improve depressing economic and social conditions on which Marxists thrive. The old Hukbalahap guerrilla organization formed in wartime -the name is a contraction for the Filipino words meaning "People's anti-Japanese Army" commonly called "Huks" - has been reconstituted under the (Continued on Page 3-A, Col. 4) Viets Get Civil Rule AP Wireplwte HEAVY SHELLS IN VIET WAR-A Vietnamese soldier who survived yesterday's attack by Communist Vietcong guerrillas on an outpost about 10 miles southwest of Saigon shows a comrade two shell cases of 75 mm re-coilless cannon shells found after the attack.

Precipitation continues well above normal in the Colorado River Basin and the latest forecast for runoff during the April-through-July season is an estimated nine million acre-feet.

He said he brought no formal message from the President to the Kremlin leadership. THIS SUGGESTED to the reporters that a high-level meeting now is in the delegate stage of sounding out feelings.

May and June are now considered the most likely months for the conference, but the second half of April is not excluded either. PRESIDENT Johnson is known to favor an earlier date. He has planned several trips overseas this year, including visits to West Europe and Latin America, and he wants his talks with the Soviet leaders to take place before his conferences with other foreign VIPs.

Icy Blast Pushes Deep Into Nation By ASSOaATED PRESS A SEVEN-STATE area -from Montana to Michigan and south into Nebraska and Iowa - was in the icy grip of a bitter cold wave yesterday. The Arctic blast centered over the northern Plains pushed deep into the still unseasonably warm eastern and southern states. Cold wave warnings were up for an area from Arkansas through the Ohio Valley to the eastern Great Lakes. THE COLD wave drove into Buffalo, N.Y., yesterday on wind gusts up to 54 miles an hour and quickly dropped the temperature from the record-breaking 59 degrees recorded shortly after midnight. The icy winds produced snow squalls to the lee of the western Great Lakes and locally heavy squalls spread into the eastern lakes by have never seen America.
