international Full MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY OCTOBER tt neighbors UOe Paper ot Two One No Dramatic election in California Crossroads for Nixon By ROBERT J DONOVAN New York Herald Tribune News Service LOS ANGELES California stands still undecided at a crossroads of immeasurable im portance to national political balance now and probably for years to come The personal fate of Richard M Nixon would of itself make the Current gubernatorial cam paign here one of the dramatic state elections of the 20thcen tury In the last 60 years only a few men have made such a strenuous effort to come back from defeat in a presidential election as Nixon is making in California The only place I am not go ing to visit is Alcatraz the former vice president says cant vote there I checked it Tograsp the full significance of the California race one ha to consider what the conse quences to the Democratic and Republican parties might be if Mr Nixon wins and what might happen if he loses Nov 6 to Gov Edmund G Pat Brown the congenial Democratic incum bent If Nixon should lose the Re publicanparty would be utterly disorganized and leaderless in a state that is shortly the most populous inthe Union Nowhere in California is there another Republican leader o Nixons statureWere the for mer vice president to be de feated the John Birch Society would get a fresh start of sorts Furthermore flN a victorious Pat Brown should be governor when the election rolls 4r6tfrid John F Kermedy would be in clover in Californil in 1964 Thit is only part of Hw story Nixon alsois a key to the Re publican riddled in 1964 even if one accepts his assertions tha he wiUnot be a candidate for president nexttimer Suppose for example Nixon is defeated for thegovernor ship Suppose also that Gov Rockefeller sweeps New York as nearly everyone expects In these circumstances Rockefeller seems destinedto be nominated by the Republicans for presiden in 1964 But suppose Nixon should win and George Romney should sim ultaneously capture the gover norship of Michigan as he well way What then if Richard Nixon reinstated as a pbwerfu national Republican leader should back Romney as a waj of getting Gov Rockefeller off the stage for good It is no certainty at all tha in these circumstances Gov Rockefeller still would walk ou of the 1964 Republican nationa convention a winner Indeed however it is viewed Nixons candidacy in California poses certain dilemmas fo Gov Rockefeller If Nixon should win here Gov Rocke feller might be blocked from the presidential nomination Bu if Nixon should lose Kennedy advantage in California migh be so great that the Republican nomination would hardly be worth the effort anyhow Personally Nixon is in fin trim There are some new line in his face and a few gray hair are showing round his temples But the recession of his hairlin has come to a safe stop He ha kept his weight down to 17 pounds He is sunburned from his long hand shaking tours o plants shipyards and shopping centers He is still brisk an squareshouldered and he seem much more relaxed than he wa in Washington Politically he seems mor conservative than he was as national candidate On tfw other hand Nixon i consciously and deliberately tak ing a great gamble He is stak ing his case on the convictio that the people of California ar in revolt against high taxes Thus instead of promising nev programs to the people as Gov Brown is doing Nixon is stick ing to the less exciting pledge o fiscal responsibility So once again Richard Nixo finds himself at the center o one of the decisive elections o ht postwar period DEATH
