It is my firm belief that this is exactly what the governor in- tends to have happen." can only Spanos said, "that-when the governor is forced to cry for more taxes in the future, that he will be more -responsive to the needs of the people than he has been in jiis present tax requests, which are as regressive as any that now exist In our archaic tax New Bills Several new bills have heen entered in the legislature.

WASHINGTON The Soviet Union has proposed to broaden official contacts with the United States, by 'establishment of an American-jjflhsalate in 'Lenin? grad and Soviet Consulate in San Francisco, diplomatic lources said today. The Nixon administration has withheld a-reply to the Russian proposal, made by Soviet Am- bassador Anatoly F. Dobrynin at a meeting with Secretary of State William P. Rogers on March 8. Though the move could be in- terpreted as a concrete expres- sion of a political will by both sides, to extend cooperation, as cited by Nixon in his news con- ference March 4, administration officials are aware of possible domestic opposition. The State Department, was gaid to be consulting with other executive branch departments, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, about the implica- tions of authorizing Soviet dip- lomats to reside in San Fran- cisco. Before replying to. the Russian proposal, State Depart- ment officials also intend to solicit.the views of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee other interested Congress- men.

In proposing the park system last year, McCutchen noted that if the purchase proved feasible, it would be pursued through the Department of the Interior under the Land and Water Conservation Funds Act. This act provides for the pur- chase of land for conservation purposes on a 50-50 matching funds basis. As envisioned' by McCutchen, the canal park system would con- sist of two separate activity areas. At the easterly end, a bird sanctuary and nature preserve would be established. The area features an ox-bow pond in a cove-like setting. The westerly end the Minei Falls region would be reserved for games, such as Softball and horseshoes, and eventually swim- ming. The swimming would comt only when thi Nashua River is depolluted. Hiking; bicycle and nature trails would link the two section! and picnicking and Testing would be provided along the trails.
