MftrryGo-Round nniiiiiiiflinniiiiHiiiiiHminnn fty Drow Pearson WASHINGTON - If Robert McNamara leaves the Defense Department to become Assistant President replacing McGeorge Bundy In the White House, you can write it down that Deputy Secretary of Defense Cyrus Vance will be moved up to take his place. Vance is a great favorite of Johnson's. He was originally selected by Edwin Weisl, Johnson's chief adviser in New York, to be special counsel to the Senate Prepardedness Committee when Johnson was its chairman, Weisl was its chief counsel. Weisl and Vance came from the same law firm, Simpson, Thacher and Bartlett, which has extensive practice representing major industrial corporations. Vance served as special counsel for Johnson's committee for three years, then became consulting counsel for the Senate Space Committee, of which Johnson was also chairman. At Johnson's request, President Kennedy appointed Vance to be general counsel of the Defense Department, and he has moved up the Defense ladder steadily ever since. One of Johnson's first moves after he became President was to promote Vance to be Deputy Defense Secretary. There will be no major policy changes under Vance, except he will not be as tough on the brass as McNamara has been. - o - -MOSCOW ADVICE-- It has now leaked out that a North Vietnamese delegation, headed by Premier Pham Van Dong, secretly visited both Peking and Moscow early this month. The premier was accompanied by the defense minister, General Nguyen Giap, one of the world's great guerrilla generals. They wanted to know what help they could expect from Russia and Red China in fighting U. S. troops in South Viet Nam. In Peking, they were urged to fight on, but apparently the Chinese hedged about military support. In Moscow, they were told bluntly that they should seek a cease fire on the best possible terms. The Russians told them that their war against the United States had become "counterproductive." In short, they stood to lose more than they could gain. - o - -HO CHI MINH TRAIL-- The one decision which Secretary McNamara made in his last trip to Saigon was to blast the whole Ho Chi Minn trail. This may sound surprising, since we've been concentrating on this network of jungle paths ever since all-out bombing started last February. But the fact is that bombing hasn't worked too well, partly because some of the trails in the Ho Chi Minn network pass through Cambodia and Laos, partly because the network actually consists mostly of narrow paths so concealed by jungle growth that they can't be seen from the air by planes only 500 feet up. But McNamara has decided that our best bombing hope under present limitations against hitting Hanoi and the port of Haiphong is to start massive bombings of the entire trail even though this means dropping bombs in Cambodia and Laos. The U. S. already has permission from Laos to do this in her territory, but not from Cambodia. Cambodia already has broken diplomatic relations with the U. S., is clearly siding with the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong, and if we start dropping bombs on Cambodia territory there will be a loud outcry, not only from Cambodia but from other U. S. critics as well. - o - —MISSILES FOR PEKING- One reason Red China may be reluctant to intervene heavily in Viet Nam is the fact that she is now ringed by U. S. Polaris submarines with their nuclear missiles calibrated and ready to be fired at major Chinese targets. In addition, the U. S. Seventh Fleet has intensified training operations for amphibious landings on the coast of North Viet Nam. If there should be an official declaration of war by either North Viet Nam or Red China, the U.S. is ready to act immediately. - o —HITLER HATE FILM — The West German government has just OK'd the showing of the last giant hate film produced under Hitler's propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, designed to stir up German hatred against the Jews, the Poles, the Russians and the Americans. There was considerable debate as to whether the German public is ready to see this Hitler preachment of hate and horror, and Jewish leaders In West Germany are protesting. The West German film censorship board, however, has given Its OK. - o - —FOOD FOR INDIA— Aides have worked up a paper for President Johnson estimating that India may need the entire U. S. wheat crop to make up ST RON6 "Teach me to do thy will, for thou art my God! Let they good spirit lead me on a level path. — Psalms 143:10 We need not always walk the rocky path of indecision. Instead, we can reach out for faith. We can pray for patience, for guidance, and for understanding. And we will soon come to know that faith makes us strong, that doubt lingers not when we feel the reassurance of having done that which was right and not that which was easy. Let God's will guide your footsteps and you will know that darkness is followed by a sunrise and that within the remnants of a shattered dream are building blocks for a better tomorrow.

One problem is India's failure to control rats, grasshoppers and weevils which each year consume more than the six million tons of surplus grain that we now ship to India. The President believes it would be cheaper to teach the Indians how to control pests and thus increase their own harvests. - o - --MERRY-GO-ROUND-- The late Henry Wallace was supposed to be a very visionary New Deal dreamer who couldn't meet a payroll. However, his will shows that he made more than $100,000 a year during the last 25 years. His corn company had net earnings of nearly $2 million a year . . .

Dick Gregory, the Negro comedian, may run for Congress from Chicago or may challenge Mayor Daley for mayor. Gregory will have a rough race against Daley, but he could defeat Congressman William Dawson of Chicago, the first Negro Democrat ever elected to Congress. - o - -BATTLE IN RIO- lt hasn't leaked out of Rio de Janeiro, but the Foreign Ministers' Conference almost split wide open on Nov. 25 during a closed-door session of its most important commission. A surprise move by Colombia to condemn openly the United States for its intervention in the Dominican Republic caused the commission to line up suddenly In hostile, warring • camps. Only vigorous conciliation moves by Mexico's veteran diplomat, Rafael de la Colina, prevented a clash that would have left the conference a shambles and might have destroyed the effectiveness of the Organization of American States. One week earlier, Mexican Foreign Secretary Antonio Carrillo Flores had won Dean Rusk's promise not to introduce the controversial proposal to create a permanent inter - American "peace-keeping" force. This was in return for Carrillo's personal assurrance that no nation would be attacked by name during the meeting. Rusk carried out his promise, despite the fact that he had previously arranged to have Nic- aragua present the plan for a multinational enforcement unit, empowered to step in whenever any Latin American government was allegedly menaced by communists. Brazil would have seconded the Nicaraguan motion. The Mexicans, Chileans, Peruvians, Uruguayans and Costa Ricans - principal opponents of this U. S. project - were satisfied with the "gentleman's agreement" and with a proposal, drafted jointly by Mexico and Chile, to reaffirm the OAS charter principle of non-intervention, without singling out specific violations.
