WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round WASHINGTON - Real fact of the CIA student association subsidy is that President Johnson did not know about it until the end of January when W. Eugene Groves, president of the National Student Association, called on Douglas Cater, a Presidential assistant at the White House, to say that Ramparts magazine was going to break the story of the CIA subsidy. Cater wanted to know whether the facts were correct and was told that they were. Groves, however, gave the impression mat the subsidy had terminated. - o- Cater reported toe matter to the President, who referred it to Under Secretary of State Nicholas Katzenbach, both for an investigation of the facts and to see what future American policy should .be. He chose Katzenbach because in both the Kennedy and Johnson administrations. Katrenhach is now investigating the entire question of student activities and the government. - o- - AMERICAN LEGION REBUFFED - Sen. Stuart Symington, D-lfo., is not only a member of the American Legion, but the first Secretary of the Air Force in American history, and as such organized the famous Berlinair- lift. The other day, in hearings before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee of which he is a member, Symington turned out to be one of the strongest champions of the Soviet- American consular treaty. The Legion, represented by Warren MacDonald, director of research, urged the Senate not to ratify the treaty. "You say you speak for the American Legion ?" asked Symington. "Did you have a vote in the American Legion, all over the United States, members of the Legion, on this subject f "We adopted a resolution at our national convention," replied MacDonald. "I can say this," countered Symington, "you do not speak for a lot of the members of the American Legion. That I am sure of." The American Legion insists that this is not the time to be entering upon courses of interaction, which gives the appearance that we are in peaceful partnership with the Soviet Union," said MacDonald during his testimony. "Does that mean that you want to give the impression to the world that we are anxious for a non-peaceful relationship with the Soviet Union which would lead to a war, possibly a nuclear war?" asked the Senator from Missouri. "No, Senator," MacDonald replied, "it only means that they are at great odds with us today over the Vietnam question." Later, the former Secretary of the Air Force noted that nations change, "The German government presently is doing everything it can to improve its the Russians. That is correct, is it not?' asked the Air Force The mighty buffalo may have vanished from the prairies of the Midwest, but you wouldn't have known it if you'd attended the buffalo auction at the Custer State Park in the Black Hills of South Dakota last week. A total of 160 bead was sold to buffalo ranches for an average price of $591 each. One bull brought as high as $1,000, sold to Mrs. Harold Schafer of the Gold Seal Wax Company. Buffalo fanciers from all over the West attended the auction, and one man, Harry Pond of Burns, Ore., who runs a hunting preserve and ranch, bought 96 head. Miss Kohlhaas Is Bride January 28, Washington Tuesday, Feb. 28, 1967 Afgona, (la.) Upper Des Moine«-9 Lutherans Held W-Bend Meeting MEW PEARSON executive who had set the Russians back so decisively in the Battle of Berlin. Mr. MacDonald: It would seem so. Sen. Symington: And the same thing is true of the British, is it not? Mr. MacDonald: I think so; yes, sir. Sen. Symington: And the same thing is also true of Japan and Italy, is it not? Mr. MacDonald: Yes, sir. Sen. Symington: So, if we follow this policy of rigid intransigence with respect to our relations with toe Russians, (a) we are doing something different from all other developed countries of the free world; and (b) we could eventually find ourselves alone in toe world, could we not? - o - - MORE TURKEY TROUBLE - Warnings have been given toe United Nations that trouble can be expected once again over toe beleaguered island of Cyprus. The expected trouble will be due to toe shipment of American arms to Turkey with no corresponding U. S. shipments to Greece. Both countries are members of NATO, but the U. S. Air Force has 10,000 troops in Turkey and has been piling about $5 billion worth of arms into that country over toe past 15 years. This highlights toe fact that American munitions makers have such an inside tract at toe Pentagon that toe Defense Department maintains a sales force headed by Deputy Assistant Secretary Henry Kuss, for toe purpose of peddling weapons around toe world. This arms-peddling bureau is not concerned over toe fact that U. S. arms shipment may churn up war. It seems only interested in promoting sales. Recently toe Pentagon sold U. S. fighter planes to Morocco at a time when Morocco and. Algeria have been arguing bitterly over a boundary dispute, it has also sold fighter planes to Latin-American nations which even under toe most remote circumstances are under no danger from outside attack. As a result of toe Defense Department's sales force, huge profits have been raked in by General Dynamics, Lockheed and McDonnell. General Dynamics has collected over $1 billion alone on toe overseas sales of its F-ll fighter plane, originally called toe TFX. - o- - WANT A BUFFALO ?- Anne Elizabeth Kohlhaas, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Vernon C.

New Equipment For Phone Calls In Use Here Sunday, Feb. 19, most Algona telephone users were not asked for their telephone number when dialing a direct long distance call. This was the day that new telephone equipment was placed into service which automatically records the calling number on calls from one-party and two- party line customers. Prior to Sunday, on all calls, an operator was signaled as dialing was completed. The call was delayed while she obtained the number and recorded it. This will still be the procedure on calls placed from rural telephone lines. Smith-Corona Portable Typewriters, Victor Adding Machines, at THE UPPER DES MOINES PUB.
