The birthday of former President Richard M. Nixon will become a holiday for the employees of Yorba Linda, the city that claims Nixon as its native son. "We're not here to judge history, we're here to recognize it," Mayor Henry W. Wedaa said. Wedaa said that despite Nixon's resignation from the presidency in 1974 under the cloud of the Watergate scandal, the proposal to commemorate his birthday has met with warm response.

One prominent Republican definitely does not want an invitation to address the party's national convention. Former President Richard M. Nixon has notified Republican Party officials that he plans to avoid political activity this year, a party source said. In a letter to Republican Party Chairman Frank J. Fahrenkopf Jr., Nixon said he would be concentrating his energies on writing a column for the London Sunday Times. Nixon sent similar word to Fred Malek, Bush's choice for convention manager.
