Mr. Nixon won in 1968 as he lost in by the narrow- er margins. San Diego's pristine image has recently been marred by a series of bribery and corrup- tinn charges against the ma- yor, a gaggle of his civic asso- and the local police force; but the incredulity of the city's upper crust turned out to be justified n'lira all but one of defendants were exoner- ated. Mr. Nixon personally tele- phoned Mayor Frank Curran, 58, to congratulate him, with the words: "We in public life take a lot of knocks." That Ean Diego's tliin, lonely 11 n d e rground newspaper, the Street Journal went on beef- ing about the greed, decay and corruption of the city concerned no-one much. Up at Logan Heights, the black ghetto area, shoulders were shrugged and everyone went to ground on Uie night the Street Journal's of' fices were by the local Minutemen, the far right vigil- ante group.

The as- sassination of Robert Kennedy 100 miles away in Los Angeles is still fresh in many mem- ories. Was not the President almost hit by a stone when he visited ''up there" a couple of years ago? Against such fears are put Ihe assurances of Uie city fath- ers and the police that they are ready for any trouble. Civic leaders know a political bonan- za when one falls into their laps, and some businessmen are already counting their bless- ings. There is rejoicing, for ex- ample, at the brand new seat stadium, where it is plan- ned to hold victory celebra- tions. The winning nominee (guess who) will make his ac- ceptance speech there, and it is said that a Hollywood prodn cer has already been asked lo stage an appropriate exlraifl- ganza. Locai politicians lend to Uiink as one with local business lead- ers, for the simple reason that they are one: the city adminis- tration is traditionally controll- ed by big business interests. By being host to this greatest of all American conventions, San Diego will he putting itself on the rr.ap as a convention city in the class of Miami Beach and Chicago, but not a few citizens wonder if they must wave good- bye to their old tranquillity. LIKE EVERYONE ELSE WINNIPEG (CP) A Winni- peg magistrate, sentencing a man to a six-monlh jail term aflcr lie pleaded guilty to 14 charges of false pretences, was amused by a pre-senlence re- port from tiic man's probation officer.
