Northwestern Bell Ay Drew Pearson WASHINGTON - President Johnson, though recovering well from his operation, is not yet the dynamic LBJ he was before he went to the hospital, He seems less energetic, his voice is quiet and low on the telephone, he generally appears subdued, One reason, aside from the aftermaths of the operation, is the fact he faces some soul- searching decisions on the war in Viet Nam. Basically, he must decide upon one of three courses being urged upon him: 1. To double U. S. forces in Viet Nam, which would mean calling out the reserves and National Guard to give Gen. Westmoreland the troops he says he must have simply to defend Viet Nam against the infiltrating North the cheeriest gift for and plants!'

To go all out, not only sending more troops but bombing Hanoi and bombing or mining the port of Haiphong to inflict maximum tjamage and cut off shipments from Russia and other nations to North Viet Nam by sea, even though this could mean destroying ships flying not only the flags of Russia but of England, France, Greece and other friendly nations. 3. To make a dramatic move for peace by suspending all bombing of North Viet Nam for some weeks or months, in the hope that this action would swing world opinion on the side of the U. S. and give Moscow and other capitals a chance to break down Ho Chi Minn's intransigent refusal to consider meaningful peace talks. One of the arguments the President is weighing is the advice of influential civilians that no white Western nation can ever win a land war in Asia, because we in the West consider life precious, and Asiatics do not. This on top of the old U. S. military axiom that any Western army would bog down in the morass of the Asiatic mainland. President Johnson also knows now that following the advice, given him a year ago by the Pentagon to start bombing North Viet Nam was a serious mistake. It has not cut off the flow of men and supplies to the South; it has not put us in a stronger bargaining position; it has instead put us on the defensive with much of the world. And it is costing many American lives. It's easy to understand why he now seems more worried than ever over the war in Viet Nam. - o - -NOTHING'S NEW— If you're worried, about the war in Viet Nam, or if you have family problems with your children, or you criticize the government in Washington, you may find some comfort in this quotation found in the papers of A'cTiai Stevenson after he died: "Our earth is degenerate in these latter days: bribery and corruption are common; children no longer obey their parents; every man wants to write a book, and the end of the world is evidently approaching." Adlai Stevenson did not write that; it was found on an Assyrian tablet inscribed 4,700 years ago. The anicient Assyrians must have had some problems too. - o - —KOSYGIN'S BLAST— Premier Kosygin's bitter blast at the United States last week had behind it certain important economic facts - chiefly that the Russian people want more food . and better housing at atime when they will now have to spend more money on arms. Also the bitter winter cold which has come early in Russia has set back the crops and the economy. Meanwhile, the Russian people have been getting more freedom to speak their minds, and they have become more critical of government failures. Premier Kosygin was telling the truth when he said that the Kremlin hated to increase the arms budget 5 per cent. - o - -RAILROADS HELP AGAIN- The Association of American Railroads deserves some public commendation for the way it has picked up boxcars of gifts for our troops in Viet Nam in cooperation with the Junior Chamber of Commerce, The railroads have done this before - they also responded magnificently when the Friendship Train was organized after World War n to send food to starving nations of Europe. Unfortunately, not all of the gifts will arrive in Viet Nam by Christmas - they're piling up in California because the Defense Department has neither the ships nor the airplanes to carry them across the Pacific in time, One reason is that when ships do get to Saigon it takes them 21 days to deposit their cargo. They have to anchor out in the river and wait for weeks before they can go up to the docks to be unloaded. Once there, the unloading is done by women dockworkers. There are two giant cranes left by the French, but these cranes aren't working for lack of parts, so the unloading must be done by hand. Some modern docks and workable machinery, plus dredging of the river to help ships get to the docks, would cure some of the shipping Jam at Saigon. - o - -ALABAM A COURTESY— One Senator who did not take a sightseeing junket abroad after Congress recessed wasTomMc- Intyre, Democrat of New Hampshire, who went instead to Hayneville, Ala., where one of his constituents, Jonathan Daniels of Manchester, N. H., had been killed by a member of the Ku Klux Klan. Sen. Mclntyre first paid a courtesy call on Gov. George Wallace of Alabama. It was not a friendly session. Gov. Wallace asked him: "Why don't you go to Watts, Calif., Philadelphia, or Harlem instead of coming to Alabama?" "I would," replied Sen. Mc- lntyre, "if one of my constituents was killed there." Mclntyre Invited Gov. Wallace to come with him to Hayneville where he was going to address a meeting in a Negro church. Wallace declined, but later told the press: "You bet I want him to speak to them Niggers." Sen. Mclntyre says, however, that except for that session with Gov. Wallace, he generally was received courteously.
