Quot he f Ord does t want Ronald Reagan to get his Matching funds and the president has the most Carter observed Quot id like to blame president f Ord for All we can but it looks to me like the Congress is the one that Hasni to Udall agreed that some democrats May have gone along with a delay hoping it would Lead to a deadlocked convention that might open up a presidential draft for Hubert h. Humphrey of Minnesota but Udall insisted the chief culprit was Ford because he refused to Tell the country he would sign a Campaign spending Law expected to be passed this pay raise advised Raleigh a it. Gov Jim Hunt today recommended a 6.5 per cent pay increase to teachers and state employees that would Cost about $95 million a year. In a statement read to the Legislatures joint appropriations committee As it met to make preparations for next week s convening of the general Assembly Hunt suggested two sources for raising the Money for next fiscal year the lieutenant governor said part would come from increased Revenue collections from the state s existing taxes As the Economy continues to improve and part from a onetime wind part from a one time wind come from changing from quarterly to monthly the payment by Large corporations of the state income taxes they withhold from their workers. Hunt said that continued funding of the pay raise would depend on continued growth in the tax collections by the general fund and the remainder from a 3 per cent Cut in state jobs during the next biennium. The pay raise proposed by Hunt is not expected to satisfy the states school teachers or state employees. The teachers have scheduled a rally in Raleigh saturday to dramatize their Call for a Cost of living pay hike of 16 to 19 per cent spokesmen for state workers also have called for a larger pay raise than Hunt proposed Hunt the highest ranking Democrat in state government.

But there was no Chance of its getting the majority it sought in the 263-seat parliament socialist Leader Mario Soares rejected overtures from the Center and right to join in a coalition government. Other influential members of his party said such a coalition was inevitable. The election outcome opened the Way for the ouster of the Moscow line communists from the government of this member of the North Atlantic treaty organization for the first time since the military revolution two years ago. With about 92 per cent of sundays votes tallied the socialists had 35.07 per cent of the vote compared to 37.9 per cent in the election for the constituent Assembly last year. The centrist popular democrats were in second place with 24 04 per cent compared to 26 4 per event last year and the communists had 14 54 per cent up slightly from 12.5 per cent. The Only big gainers were the conservatives of the social democratic Center. They had 15 83 per cent of the votes double their showing last year and nosed ahead of the communists to take third place this conservative gain was viewed As a backlash against the confused and ineffectual a leftist provisional governments that have held office since the armed forces overthrew the Salazar Caetano dictatorship two years ago the rest of the votes were scattered among to splinter parties final results were expected late today. Francisco a Carneiro head of the popular democrats and Diogo Freitas do Amaral presi Dent of the social democratic Center called on the socialists to join them in a coalition. Soares rejected the Center right offer and he also said an Alliance with the communists was out of the question but pressure was building up within his own party to come to terms with the two other major anticommunist parties. Soares predicted before the election that the socialists would get at least 42 per cent of the vote. He said if they could not govern alone they would Lead the opposition.
