Yet, this is small comfort to
these employes now as they
look 10 years ahead. The lower
grades in Government in many
cases involve dead-end jobs,
where there is little chance for |
promotion, and employes look
ahead to their in-steps.
Another thing that worries |
them is that under the new pay
comparability system, there
won't be much future raises for
the lower grades. Federal sal
aries have been found lagging
behind comparable Industry

Advantage Is Seen
Mr. Cox’s supporters anxious

selves as to the impact of the
Cuban situation on the Texas
election. Privately, most of
them reluctantly admitted they
felt Mr. Connally had gained
an unexpected advantage.
The Chronicle evaluation

neer who is in the top step of
Grade 7. Under the old pay
scale he was earning $6,345 a
year. The first phase of the
new pay raise gives him an in
crease of $305, making his sal
ary $6,650. So far, so good.
However, if the employe is
promoted to Grade 7 —and most
engineers and scientists even
tually get this opportunity—the
trouble then begins.
Under the old pay scale, the
| employe would have been pro
moted to the fifth step of
Grade 9. which was the mini

of shortage category jobs. Thus,
under the old pay scale, his
| pay would have been $7,095 a

Under the new pay scale, his
salary even in the superimposed
pay scale for shortage cate
gory jobs will orjly be $7,125.

Mr. Griner says the AFGE is

Momentum of Nixon
Alarms Brown Camp
Stir Stiff Writer
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 27.—There is growing apprehension
among top California Democrats that Gov. Edmund G. <Pat)
Brown may lose to Richard M. Nixon in the November 6 guber
natorial election.
The concern has been mounting since the Cuban crisis
threw the campaign into a new phase.
But there is no panic as yet
on the Democratic side.
So far, none of the accepted
public or private polls shows
Mr. Nixon ahead. The former
Vice President himself told a
reporter this week, “I think
the race is even, but we have a
slight edge because of our mo-;
Gov. Brown and those on;
his personal campaign staff
maintain their confidence that
he will win unless there is a
monumental Democratic stay
at-home vote. They look for
a margin of perhaps 250,000 !
Outlook Seen Shifted
But among other Demo- J
cratic leaders, there is (vide- ■
spread concern that the Cuban [
crisis has altered the situation
in three ways, none of them
favorable to the Governor:
1. By keeping President Ken
nedy from appearing here this
week end, it robbed the gen
erally dull Brown campaign of
its long-awaited moment of
excitement. The Governor's!
current visit to Washington, for
a conference on civil defense!
matters, is regarded here as'
useful for his leadership repu
tation, but wholly inadequate
as a substitute for the impact
on local Democrats of three
days of presidential campaign
2. The Cuban crisis has con
verted Mr. Nixon’s greatest
handicap in the State campaign
—his long-established interest
in matters beyond the borders
of California—into an asset.
For the first time since he an
nounced for Governor, the for
mer Vice President feels free
to talk about his favorite sub
ject of international politics.
Indeed, voters are Interested in
little else.
3. The Cuban situation also
has created a climate of tension
in which Mr. Nixon’s charge
that Gov. Brown has failed to
combat Communist subversion
in California flourishes. He is
riding it hard.
Nixon is Relieved
Not surprisingly, Mr. Nixon
has been buoyed by the’week’s
events. The worry of the Ken
nedy visit has been erased. His
relief at being able to talk for
eign affairs again is obvious.
Mr. Nixon was realist enough
to know that Democrats had
nicked him with their charge
that he was interested in the
governorship only as a ’’parking
place’’ for his presidential am
He told friends, with a touch
of bitterness, that “California
is the only State where the fact
that a man is a potential Pres
ident is a disadvantage to him.”
Now, Mr. Nixon is playing the
statesman’s role to the hilt and ,
loving every minute of it. A ’
California newspaper headline
on a speech yesterday read:
“Nixon Counsels People to Be
Calm in Crisis.” It sounded as
if he were Governor—if not
All this has thrown off Gov.
Brown’s original timetable. His
theory has been that most
voters make up their minds
early. He pushed his campaign
hard early this year, when Mr.
Nixon was tied up in a primary
battle with conservative Repub
lican Joseph Shell.
Pleased by Early Polls
Gov. Brown was more than
pleased when he moved into
a 6-point lead over his rival
in the mid-September polls. He
foresaw no major problem in
holding his advantage and
made no plans—except for the
Kennedy visit—for a spectacu
lar windup.
Mr. Nixon, as is well known,
believes in “peaking” his cam
paign just before election day,
and he believes it is working
out this way. His first big lift
came in his October 1 debate
with the Governor, which even
Democrats concede the Repub-
I lican .won.
Since then, his crowds have
been running substantially
larger than Gov. Brown's and
he has been -grabbing more
than his share of the head
Mr .Nixon has planned a
whirlwind finish for his drive.
He will swing through all the
population centers of the State
next week and wind up with
the last of his three-hour "tele
thons” Saturday night.
Also, films of the San
Francisco debate will be shown
, widely during these final,
[critical days.
Mr. Nixon is running as if
he still had ground to make
up, and the best evidence this
week end is that he does.
He has faced two major prob
lems ever since the campaign
began: Uniting the Republi
cans behind him and cutting
into the massive Democratic
registration lead. That lead
now is almost 1.3 million, but,
significantly, it has declined
about 80,000 since 1960, when
Mr. Nixon outpolled Mr. Ken
nedy by 35.000 votes.
There is little doubt now that
Mr. Nixon will get the 90 per
cent of the Republican vote
he is calculated to need.
Some prominent Republi
cans have turned against him
—among them, Earl Warren,
jr„ former Los Angeles Mayor!
Norris Poulson and former Lt.
I Gov. Harold J. (Butch) Powers.!
I But the basic rift with the!
right-wing Republicans who
opposed him in the primary
has been closed.
Aided by Opponent
Mr. Shell, his primary op
ponent, is stumping for him.
Gov. Brown says privately,
"I’m not going to get the share
I deserve” of the Republican
Whether Mr. Nixon can per
suade 20 per cent of the Dem
ocrats to vote for him—as the
Republican victory formula
provides—is more problemati
cal. That is the main effort of
his current campaign and its
cutting edge is the “Communist
This past week thousands of
registered Democrats received
through the mail a large post
card addressed to "Dear Fellow
Democrat” and signed, “Com
mittee for the Preservation of

Officers of the State Demo
cratic Party have obtained a
temporary court injunction

Democratic workers which
meets to debate policy and in
dorse candidates before each

course of our party?”
