Eau Claire Leader (Newspaper) - July 28, 1968, Eau Claire, Wisconsin La Ito in i als features Reagan embarrassed by recall petition Eagle s nest a Small Cliff Hanger has been developing in California without much National attention and on the eve of the Republican National convention it could be very embarrassing to gov. Ronald Reagan. A used car Salesman of Roseville claims to have 800,000 signatures on a petition to have the governor recalled. According to state Law a recall petition requires the signatures of 780,413 qualified voters. Washington calling rhetoric of escape form of Ostrich ism by Marquis Childs Washington a a personable vigorous highly photogenic ghost stalked the governors conference just ended in Cincinnati As indeed he stalks the National political scene. The name of this attractive dynamic ghost is John v. Lindsay who is mayor of new York. Again and again in private discussion and occasionally in Public comment Lindsay s name came up. The reason is not hard to discover. For republicans and perhaps even for democrats. Lindsay is a will of the Wisp of Hope that there is an escape from the oppressive inevitability of presidential candidates who Register so Low on the enthusiasm barometer. A just suppose a one Republican governor said a that there s a deadlock in the convention in Miami Beach with Nixon Rockefeller and Reagan unable to get a majority of the delegates. Lindsay is put in nomination and Rockefeller throws h i s strength to him. Why they a go wild. Head have the this is of course a Midsummer nights fantasy evoked out of the boredom and emptiness of the Cincinnati conf e rence. Even for vice president if either Richard Nixon or Nelson Rockefeller is the presidential candidate Lindsay can be ruled out. The provision in the Constitution that the electoral votes of a state May not be counted for a president and a vice president from the same St the disposes of that. For either Nixon or Lindsay to change his residence prior to the electoral count would be a piece of too obvious trickery. What Lindsay stands for in relation to t h e desperate needs of the cities has Little or nothing to do with his Appeal to the pros casting about for an attractive alternative to the old politics. He conveys vibrant youth. He televised like a movie Star not of the Ronald Reagan Era but out of the new and Radical film world. He seems to speak what he believes and not the rhetoric of the past. Shows great courage when the Nixon strategists cast covetous eyes at him ignoring the constitutional provision they Praise him for his ability to open a dialogue with the negro minority in the ghetto. They talk about How he walks the troubled streets of Harlem and Bedford Stuyvesant and meets face to face the militant Blacks and the restless Young angry at the cutbacks in summer programs. All this is Ture. Lindsay has shown great Cour age. His forthright confrontation with the ghetto May be the reason new York has thus far had no renewal of major rioting. But As he knows better than almost anyone the dialogue in the streets is Only a beginning a Campaign asset. Like a television presence it is a holding action that gains Confidence and a measure of Goodwill. If Steps Are not taken on the basis of this Goodwill to remedy the evils of the Core cities than it May be worse than nothing. It was an outsider who spoke that truth. John Gardner former Secretary of health education and welfare and now head of the Urban coalition. Told the governors what he has been telling each of the presidential candidates in private. The new president who takes office in january simply cannot go on doing More of the same. He must come Forward with and gain acceptance for a dynamic new plan to make Over not just the cities but America. Childs this represents 12 per cent of the 1966 vote for governor. In a state As Large As California with the inhabitants generally willing and even anxious to sign a petition for anything it is not difficult to bedevil an office Holder As soon As he has taken office. Secretary of state Frank m. Jordan like Reagan a Republican will have the duty of deciding the Validity of the signatures. Jordan has threatened leaders of the recall drive with criminal prosecution if signatures have been obtained under false pretences. Jordan on july 3 said this Campaign was a a the first time in 27 years in be had so Many questions about the propriety of a petitions misrepresentation of a petition in California is a felony punishable by a Fine of up to $5,000 and a prison term of up to two years. The same sentence can apply to anyone who knowingly files a petition with forged signatures. The recall is a special election to determine whether a Public official shall be superseded before the expiration of his term. In recent times the device was introduced in the los Angeles charter of 1903. It subsequently found wide acceptance Robert c. Brooks observes a in municipal Charters chiefly of the Home Rule commission and City manager the recall has been used less extensively in the United states than had been anticipated by its proponents. For one thing the Mere threat of it operates to Check flagrant misfeasance in office. Woodrow Wilson called it a a gun behind the for another the machinery for using it is necessarily cumbersome. According to the Council of state governments 12 states provide for the recall of All elected state officials with the exception of the judiciary in some states. Hawaii is considering adding the recall provision to its Constitution. The attempt to recall Ronald Reagan comes at a time when he is making a tour of eight o More states As a a non candidate for the presidency. Reagan told newspapermen on july 2 that the drive could be a a embarrassing to him at the Republican convention which opens i n Miami Beach on aug. 5. If the petition stands up Reagan would be the first California governor to have to undergo a recall election. However according to Secretary of state Jordan recall petitions have been circulated in the the eau Claire la add a eau Claire Wise Niin sunday july 28, 1968 4a voice of the people editor s not letter to the Vole of the poop should to limit a to 400 words.

He was keenly interested in his work and often served As an unofficial advisor to Public officials. A tribute to his intellect was that h i s advice was usually accepted. His interest in military life dated Back to the time the american troops were sent to the mexican Border in 1916 to quell the trouble there. He gave Many life serving his country years of his he put it bluntly to the governors. This can 1.th? a biter Force Sand attained the not be done without new taxes to provide the rank.

Most of the governors preferred however to talk about self help the efforts of private capital in the ghettos the errors of the past in Public housing. They were simply unwilling to face the reality Gardner put before them. Yet it is first world War. Long after his retirement As an officer he retained an Active interest in military affairs.

Vermilyea and wherever he found it he did what he could to Correct it increasingly Clear that the next president will proving himself a True Newspaperman confront the plight of the cities with Patching and mending wholly inadequate to Stem the Swift tide of decay in physical and human resources. The cynics will say that election campaigns Are not meant As Gardner advocated to bring the electorate to a commitment for future action. The voters will run from the candidate who tells them Home truths about the needs of the future. They prefer to believe that. If Only the wicked ins Are turned out in favor of the virtuous outs All will be for the Best once More in the Best possible of worlds. After All Franklin Roosevelt at nearly the Bottom of the depression in 1931 campaigned As a conservative calling for a balanced budget. But today More than perhaps Ever before in our history the rhetoric of escape would seem to be a perilous form of Ostrich ism.
