Joan Milke Flores paced outside the county administration building in San Diego one morning last week, waiting for the news media to arrive for a press conference. "Thank you," she sighed with relief when a lone reporter approached the portable lectern. "You've saved me from a candidate's nightmare." Short on money but long on ambition, Flores has learned the value of news coverage, the free exposure of campaigns, in her bid to unseat four-term incumbent Secretary of State March Fong Eu.

Once, the only highways the American Communist Party seemed concerned with were the ones they blocked with peace protests. But these days the Communist Party is demonstrating on a new road--the information superhighway; as of this month, communism has gone on-line. "With this technology, we can reach straight to the people and they can do the same back to us," explains Evelina Alarcon, chairwoman for the party's Southern California district, which, she says, has 1,000 members.

The rally was part of a small but growing movement among states and some federal legislators to establish Chavez's birthday as an official holiday. Several speakers compared Chavez to slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.

Santa wasn't the only Red-suited guest at one Christmas party held Sunday in Los Angeles. Members of the Communist Party gathered beneath a Christmas tree topped with a hammer-and-sickle to munch holiday cookies and mull over how Karl Marx's theories still might be able to bring peace on Earth and goodwill to men.

A Democratic challenger who waged a serious campaign against an entrenched Republican state senator made little headway at the ballot box Tuesday. Another Democratic challenger with only meager resources tallied surprising support--although still losing--in his race against an incumbent whose name was linked to an FBI "sting operation" at the state Capitol. The two races--challenging veteran Glendale incumbents state Sen. Newton R.

Ventura County likes its politics conservative and its taxes low, voters said again Tuesday in strongly backing Gov.-elect Pete Wilson and rejecting billion-dollar bond measures by margins wider than the state as a whole.
