Clines New York Times News Service MOSCOW — Soviet citizens voted on Sunday on whether to approve President Mikhail S. Gorbachev's plea that this nation, so deeply riven by political and economic struggle, should continue as a union. This most basic of issues attracted voters by the tens of millions during a 15-hour voting day whose outcome was expected to provide a somewhat qualified victory for Gorbachev. Poll takers predicted that his referendum on the nation's future might carry by a safe margin but only while voters also presented a widespread and no less significant measure of national dissonance through an assortment of regional ballot demurrals and demands for greater sovereignty and democracy. In various subsidiary ballot challenges to the authority of the embattled Soviet leader, voters in such critical areas as the heartland Russian Republic were expected to approve a separate question about establishing direct popular voting for the office of its president. And in the economically critical Ukraine, voters were also expected to approve separate questions favoring far less Kremlin control over the republic's sovereignty and, in the western Ukraine, even independence. Gorbachev's referendum question to protect a "renewed" national union against the rival separatist pressures in the nation's 15 sovereignty-hungry republics attracted a big turnout across one of the largest and most critically troubled swaths of the globe, encompassing 11 time zones. Turnouts in excess of 70 and 80 percent were reported in the most populous regions. The day was generally reported peaceful, although in the'Moldavian republic citizens of Russian and Ukraine stock seeking to vote were reported blocked, sometimes violently, when they tried to buck the local boycott. The question put to the voters was: "Do you consider it necessary to preserve the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics as a renewed federation of equal sovereign republics, in which the rights and freedoms of people of any nationality will be fully guaranteed?" More than 190 million people were eligible for the vote and the naysayers among them were particularly annoyed that the referendum does not deal with the critical details of the new union treaty Gorbachev is promising. 10 vying for seat in Senate Andrew Silva Anaheim Bulletin ANAHEIM — The campaign for the 35th state Senate District creeps to a close Tuesday with 10 candidates hoping to have stirred enough votes to get them into a runoff May 14. The expected low voter turnout and the relatively short time candidates had to run may explain why it's been an almost invisible campaign, Somewhere between 15 percent and 18 percent of the 312,000 voters in the district are expected to show up at the polls in the open primary to select the successor to John Seymour, who gave up his state Senate seat when Gov. Pete Wilson appointed him to the U.S. Senate. The only fireworks in the campaign so far resulted from a mailer sent last week by Orange County Transportation Commission Chairman Dana Reed. The mailer charged Assemblyman John Lewis, R-Orange, with forging former President Ronald Reagan's signature on a campaign mailer in 1986 and with being censured by .the state Legislature. The Orange County Republican Party ruled last week that Reed violated the campaign ethics code he pledged to follow, though the ruling has no effect other than bad publicity. Other than that, the campaign comes down to which of the eight Republicans can get a plurality to run against Frank Hoffman, an Anaheim attorney and the only Democrat in the race, and Eric Sprik, a Costa Mesa dry cleaner running on the Libertarian ticket. In the heavily Republican district, the winner of the primary is expected to win in May. However, if one of the candidates gets more than 50 percent of the vote, he or she will be the new state senator. If not, a runoff among the top vote-getters in each party is scheduled May 14.

They're spread thin because they're battling all kinds of issues: social services, unemployment, education and voter participation." — Supervisor Gaddi Vasquez Hispanics help to change the face of the city Mike Pilgrim/Anaheim Bulletin Angelica Campos, 9, plays nation ball at Loara Elementary School in Anaheim. Editor's Note: This is the first of a five-part series examining the role of the Hispanic community in Anaheim. Joel Beers Anaheim Bulletin ANAHEIM — Planning Commissioner A1 Peraza can attest to the changing face of the city. When he taught at Palm Lane in the late '50s, there was one Hispanic student at the elementary school. Today, approximately 90 percent of the school is Hispanic. As Anaheim stares down the last nine miles of the road to the year 2000, it stands at a crossroads. A city that was incorporated and primarily run by German immigrants for 100 years is now one-third Hispanic. By 1995, the Hispanic population is expected to reach 39 percent and by the year 2000, 45 percent. A look at Anaheim's youth makes the future crystal clear. The largest elementary school district, the Anaheim City School District, has a 54 percent Hispanic population. And enrollment is growing fast. But while the face of Anaheim ANAHEIM i CITY OF CHANGE is appearing increasingly Hispanic, its soul is not. Hispanic representation and input in community, political and social levels is not commensurate with the numbers. There are no Hispanic city council members. The city's upper management is devoid of Hispanics. Five of the city's 114 board members and commission are Hispanics. The task of turning their considerable numbers into a powerful force that will give Hispanics political power, make them feel more involved on the community level and make their streets and neighborhoods safer is a difficult one, Hispanic leaders agree. Education, economics and a lack of political representation and unity among the Hispanic community are all major hurdles.

You hammer the gold knocker, notice it's engraved with a smiling star and turn a door handle that's almost larger than your hand. Behind these gates of wood and steel, through a set of giant windows, you can see snow-capped mountains. There's a balcony lush with greenery, a huge couch and a giant desk. This is where Carl Karcher, the Anaheim hamburger king, dwells — in a conference-room sized office with a balcony and an unspeakably terrific view of the San Gabriel Mountains. Like many other Anaheim executives, Karcher says he likes his office comfortable and impressionable. And, as long as Western Bacon Cheeseburgers continue to sell by the truckload, he's willing to keep his office that way. But Karcher said in Anaheim it isn't chic for executives to go overboard on office frills. "This is not what I would call an elaborate office," Karcher said. "This is not overkill. The balcony adds a pleasant atmosphere ... I want the office to look like home." Many other Anaheim executives agree that the city is distinguished from Irvine Please see OFFICES/A 12 Sam Gangwer/Anaheim Bulletin Mike Johnson, CEO of Chapin Medical Co. sits in his luxurious office suite complete with fireplace.
