think it’s time for a change in that regard.”

CONCORD N.H. (AP) — Sen. Alan Cranston quit the race for the Democratic presidential nomination today after a disappointing seventh place finish in the New Hampshire primary, claiming credit for raising “the nuclear consciousness of all the Democratic candidates and of the American people.’’
Cranston, the first man to enter the race more than a year ago, said, “I know the difference between reality and dreams I know when to dream and how to count votes.
Cranston, whose campaign was conducted on a slogan of “peace and jobs,” finished in fourth place in the lead-off Iowa caucuses last week before fulling out to the next-to-the-last spot in New Hampshire Tuesday.
Aides said he was about ll million rn debt when he decided to quit In a statement he read at an early-rooming news conference. Cranston spoke not of defeat, but of shifting gears and a “change in tactics" on the peace issue.
“I believe I have helped raise the nuclear consciousness of all the Democratic candidates and of the American people," he said.Bloomin’ weather

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Gary Hart’s surprise trouncing of Walter F. Mondale in "cantankerous" New Hampshire transforms the Democratic presidential campaign from catch-up to contest as the thinning field of candidates look to Super Tuesday.
Early this morning, Sen. Alan Cranston of California, the first man to enter the race, became the first to bow out after a disappointing seventh place finish.
Hart, jubilant at trading his dark horse image for the mantle of giant-killer, lingered this morning to thank voters who made it possible. The Colorado senator was then off to a campaign rally in Denver.
Mondale, a limping front-runner at best, predicted he would win the nomination despite Tuesday’s surprise.
Mondale stopped in Boston before heading South, to the next major battleground, with stops in Georgia and Alabama where he will be tested March 13 by Sen. John Glenn and the Rev. Jesse Jackson in territory generally unfamiliar to Hart.
Primary night March 13 has been dubbed Super Tuesday because nine states, including Florida, Georgia. Alabama. Massachusetts and Washington state, all hold elections or caucuses on that date.
“I am ready to contest every primary ... I am ready to run this race and win,’’ a somber Mondale told supporters late Tuesday.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Multitalented Michael Jackson’s eight-award sweep behind his smash album “Thriller’’ set one record and classical conductor Sir Georg Solti toppled another in a night of firsts at the 26th annual Grammy awards.
“Thriller,’’ which has sold 25 million records to become the bestselling record of all time, earned Jackson seven awards Tuesday night, including album of the year and record of the year for the No. I single “Beat It.”
The eighth award, best children’s
recording, was for his narration and singing on the album version of “E T. — The Extra-Terrestrial.”
Jackson went into the National Academy of Recording Arts 4 Sciences ceremony with 12 nominations in IO categories. The previous record for most Grammy* won in a single evening was held by Paul Simon, who (ricked up seven awards for the 1970 Simon 4 Gar-funkel hit album “Bridge over Troubled Water."
Solti, who had won 19 Grammys before the nationally televised awards
show, received another four, including best classical recording and best orchestral recording for Mahler’s "Symphony No. 9 in D Major.” With 23 Grammys, Solti now has three more awards than film score specialist Henry Mancinni, who previously held the record for most Grammys.
In another Grammy first, 22-year-old trumpet virtuoso Wynton Marsalis won one Grammy for a classical work and another for jazz. A modest winner, he declined comparisons to such greats as Miles Davis and Dizzy
“I’m still like Miles Davis and Dizzy Gillespie were when they were 22 — trying to learn how to play," he said.
Solti’s four awards were matched only by Quincy Jones, who earned three Grammys as Jackson’s coproducer on “Thriller” and one as producer of the “ET.” album.
"Of all the awards I’ve got toight, I’m most proud of this one," Jackson said of the “E T." Grammy.
His other “Thriller” awards included best male pop vocal for the album, rock vocal for “Beat it,’’
rhythm 4 blues vocal and song of the year for “Billie Jean,” and producer of the year.
Jackson did not perform during the telecast, but viewers did see him dance in two Pepsi-Cola ads. He suffered much-publicized scalp bums during filming of one of the spots last month, but the injury was not apparent at the awards show
The British rock band The Police kept Jackson from winning the two other awards he was nominated for The band s elegantly simple ballad, “Every Breath You Take,” beal out
Jackson and Paul McCartney's “The Girl Is Mine” in the pop group category.
Police lead singer Sting took new song of the year honors for writing “Every Breath You Take “
The group, which rn previous years had won three Grammys, took four this tune, including the rock group award for their “Synchronicity’’ LP and the rock instrumental category for the title track to Sting s “Brimstone 4 Treacle" soundtrack

Council approves $2 fee for parking at Prince Solms Park
The proposed $2 parking fee at Prince Solms Park East has been termed an “experunent." But the city won’t be doing it on a “free Inal” basis, staff members indicated Monday night.
While City Council debated the second reading of the $2-per-car fee ordinance, Parks Director Court Thieleinan and City Manager E N Delashmutt outlined the projected costs of putting the ordinance into effect.
The vote went the same way it did on first reading: 4-2 in favor, with Barbara Tieken and Betty l>ou Rushing against. But the ordinance will have to be read one more time before it becomes law, and Thieleman’s report led the council to discuss some questions that hadn’t been raised before Council members knew the city would have to pay somebody to collect the fees and police the parking lot But some seemed supnaed at Thieleman’s projected staff of eight, and the salary ha proposed to pay them “Don’t you think you could get workmen to work for less that five bucks an hour?” Joe Rogers asked.
“No way,” said Delashmutt. “I pay 84.76 for my swimming pool guard Just to ait there.”
“Yes. but those people have to have some credentials," Rogers said. Thieieman indicated the parking-lot attendants might need some “credentials, ’ too, because they may, at tunes, be responsible for large amounts of money Thieieman also said that 170 feet of curb will need to be taken out so that cars can park on the grass next to the exulting paved lot.
Council had agreed to try the grass parking on a temporary basis, to see if it relieves congestion in the surrounding neighborhood In view of that, several members suggested other ways of getting to the cars to the grassy areas without removing that much curb.
Mayor O.A Slralemann Jr. asked about piling asphalt next to the curb, creating a sort of ramp up Rushing favored removable wooden ramps Thieieman didn’t think either of those methods would work, because of the abnormal height of the curb there Hie ramps would have to extend so far into the street that they would get in the way of other cars, he said Delashmutt said the curb on Uebacher Circle and the adjacent parking lot was built high on purpose.
