Rochester, City Officers Trade Ideas East Rochester officials, consid- ering a shift from village lo L'ily slalus, came lo Canandaigua last evening to get some ideas on cily government operation. But the information followed no one-way path. After a two-hour, give-and-take session, at Cily Hall, Mayor Arthur R. iMunson and a half dozen Can- andaigua leaders said they too had profited and had gained valuable insight into key municipal prob- lems. East Rochester's key question was whether Canandaiyua had re- gretted the step it took 47 years ago in 1913 when it approved a city charier. "1 don't Ihink former Su- preme Courl Justice Fred D.

Canawlaigua officials expressed nuresl in East Rochester's ex- jerience with tlie .Monroe Counly sales tax. They learned (1) that East Rochester derives about ncumc annually from the sales tax, (2) lhat if Eas.1 Rochester be comes a cily it will get sligiHl over in sales tax income- and (3) it has had an apparent in- 'lueiicc on real property taxes' in Ihe village. Tax comparisons proved difficul' because Easl Rochester villagi lies in bolh Ihe Towns of Perinim and I'itlsford and is, therefore1 subject lo varying taxation levels. At present, it was pointed out, tin: property tax is about per assessed valu- ation for local government includ- ing ils share in Monroe counly ex- penses.

A 'legislative leader said the federal restraining order jeopardized continued operation of New Orleans schools. U. S. Disf. Judge J.

The bishop's area comprises about 900 churches in Central, Northern and Western New York and Northern Pennsylvania. The principals commended offi- cials who have kept public schools open despite inlegralion crises. Tlieir rcsolulion did not refer to any specific incident.

Goldwatcr Says US Policy Now 'Soft, Sluggish' CHICAGO (AP) Sen. Harry Goldwatcr, It-Ariz., says Ameri- can foreign policy has become soft with "sluggish scnlimonlalily" and an "obsession for pleasing people." The Republican conservative leader said Monday night a "well- inlenlioned refusal to play tlie role of a great power" is ttie chief factor in the foreign policy lapse. Goldwalcr, a brigadier general in Ihe Air Force Reserve, told some members of the He- serve Officers Association: "Jn theme, thrust and motive American foreign policy has been primarily an exercise in self-in- gralialion. "This sluggish scntimcnalily, Ihis obsession for pleasing people, has become a mailer of grand strategy. .no less than a gukling principle of American policy. It is leading us. .to national and inter; national disaster." The Arizona senator, widely mentioned as a possible candidate for the GOP presidential nomina- tion in added; "We havo proceeded on the laeil assumption lhal virtue has ils own reward, and lhat our only real problem is lo make sure Ihe world perceives our virtue." Goldwalcr cited a lisl of Amer- ican stands which, he said, "have a single common effort please world opinion." Among them were deference lo Ihe Unilcd Nalions, the nuclear Icsl ban, foreign aid, refusal lo intervene in Ihe Congo ami Cuba, exchange visits of American and Soviel leaders, advocacy of gen- eral disarmamenl and cultural ex- change programs. Such an altitude, he claimed, is sclf-defealing 'because "would-be beneficiaries construe our conces- sions and self-denials as weak- want more." MOSCOW (AP) The world Communist movement publicly closed ranks today Ifl support So- viel Premier Khrushchev's thesis lhat communism can triumph without nuclear war. Khrusehev (bus won a victory at last month's Communist summit meeting.

"War is nol fatally inevitable. The Communist parlies regard Hie fight for peace as Iheir prime said a declaration spread across 314 pages in Pravda. This is what Khrushchev has in- sisted on since the 20lh Kovibl Communist parly congress in 1056 which has won later endorsements from tha Communist movement. But Ibis time he won H stamp of approval only after an cmbal- lled Communist summit meeting lhal opened in the Kremlin Nov. day afler Ihe U.S. cleclions continued for 21 days. Tire agreement lhat emerged, in pub- lic at least, look words. Rut no one could tell how permanent was the ink in which it was writ- ten. (Communist China has held lhat war will) the capitalist world is in- evitable. This was the major dif- ference with the Kremlin in the larger question of how the Com- munists should advance Iheir a belligerent posture toward the West and cncourage- mcnl of violent revolution, or by negotiation with the capitalists while communism lakes over gradually.) (Newspapers in London saw the manifesto as a Communist go- ahead for Khrushchev to pursue new ncgolialions with the West after Ihe failure of the May sum- mil meeting.) Communism, said Ihe manifesto is bound lo win in peace "by the force of ils example." 11 warned lhal "war is a con- stant companion of capitalism" but said "real forces have ap- peared thai are capable of foiling ils plans of aggression." The manifesto called on Com- munist parties lo unilc with other like-minded groups in popular fronts, instead of continuing the Communist fighl alone. "Today in a number of capital- ist countries the working class, headed by ils vanguard (The Communist has the oppor- tunity lo. unite a majority of the people, win slale power without civil war and ensure the transfer of tlw basic means of .production lo Ihe bands of Ihe the manifesto said. nuatcnu VICTOR Viclor Town Board" members appeared stunned and dismayed when the resignalion of I "red Fowler as zoning inspector was read by Sherman Cotlon, board secretary, at the business meeting held in Ihe Victor Town Kail last night.
