(Los Angeles, California) Political power in California noted. This primary may determine Democratic presidential candidate, or even next President California state is enormous, with redwood trees, fertile soil, large population, and Tehachapi Mtns. which divide north and south of state. In north, San Francisco should go to McGovern, though Mayor Joseph Alioto is Humphrey backer. Los Angeles is heart of South California. Movie industry is here, but also aerospace workers worried about jobs. Humphrey counts on them. Taxes, busing, welfare also issues. Both candidates court minority groups. Youth support McGovern. Elderly wooed by both.
