WASHINGTON Meny-Go-Round from HISJORY'S SCRAPBOOK DATES AND EVENTS FROM YESTERYEARS WASHINGTON —The meaning of words can be a fascinating study. Tills is especially true, and important, when It involves legal matters. Many suits never would reach court if the parties did not disagree over what they had agreed to, and they couldn't go on up to the Supreme Court for a final decision if even lawyers and judges understood words the same way. The importance of the meaning of words is sharply Illustrated by the case of Sen. Thomas Dodd of Connecticut before the Senate Ethics Committee. When public hearings opened last week, the Senator and his lawyers and the committee and its lawyers agreed to certain facts in a stipulation of 162 pages. That stipulation includes copies of letters, publicity and financial accountings for a number of the "testimonials" forthe Senator which are under question. The Senator insists that these testimonial affairs were to raise funds for her personal use; that the funds were "gifts' which would not be subject to income tax; that he in no case used political campaign contributions for personal expenses. One of the major "testimonials" in question is a series of fund-raising activities inCon- nectlcut on October 26, 1963. In the stipulation are two letters from one of the organizers of these affairs, Paul V. McNamara, a lawyer of Bridgeport, DREW PEARSON Conn. The first letter, dated October 15, 19C3, begins: "Dear Howard; "I will be calling you in a few clays about whether or not you are willing to make a contribution to Tom Dodd's campaign. I know you read the papers avidly and are, therefore, aware that we have scheduled October 26 as a sort of kick-off for fund raising activities for the Senator. "On that date, there will be a cocktail party In Fairfield at which Vice President Lyndon Johnson and Senator Dodd will be in attendance. There is 1 no sense in my being coy about this matter. The purpose of the cocktail party is to raise money . . . .' The second letter, dated the next day, October 16, 1963, begins: "Dear -- -: "In 1964, our friend, Senator Thomas J. Dodd, will campaign for reelection to the U.S. Senate. It does not seem necessary for me to stress the heavy financial burden that this campaign will involve. For this reason it is necessary for those of us who respect and admire Senator Dodd to lend whatever aid we can to assist him in presenting avlgor- ous campaign. To this end, we have scheduled October 26 as a fund-raising date throughout the state, and we are fortunate enough to be able to announce that Vice President Lyndon B. Johnsonwlll be here in Connecticut throughout Thu tuberculosis gvnn was discovered by Prof. Robert Koch, March 24, 1882. The U. S. and Great Britain ugreed on the Alaskan boundary, March 25, 1905. Ferdinand Foch was appointed supreme commander of the allied armies, March 26, 1918. New York passed a compulsory education law, March 27, 1928. Japan withdrew from the League of Nations, March 27, 1933. The final unit of Rockefeller Center, New York, was completed, March 28, 1940, making It the largest office and entertainment development. The Dominion of Canada was established, March 29, 1967. Secretary of State Seward signed treaty with Russia for purchase of Alaska, March 30, 1867. the entire day to take part in various activities planned for that day . . . ." The letter goes on to explain there will be a cocktail party at Fairfield at which "it is our hope that the various guests will see fit to make contributions of $100 or more. I hope you can find it within your means and power to help us assist the Senator by being present." It also mentions a dinner that night at which the subscription will be $25 or moreperperson.' This is one of the testimonial funds which Senator Dodd claims was raised not for political campaign expenses but "to assist him 1 in paying his personal bills. It is understandable that Dodd, as a defendant, would deny violating a law. ButMcNamara— the man who signed the letters — in the face of his own words made the same denial when he told the Ethics Committee the contributions he had requested for Dodd "to assist him in presenting a vigorous campaign' were not for campaign purposes but to pay Dodd's personal living expenses. - o - — CONFLICTS IN TESTIMONY — There has been some very CHURCHES... Make Strong Communities "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; be not frightened, neither be dismayed; for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." -Joshua 1:9 We cannot expect every day of our lives to be filled with roses and happiness. Things will not always go our way. We can expect reversals, defeats, and constant challenges. Though we may not always win, we can still refuse to be hopelessly beaten. We can always salvage something of a victory if we refuse to sit down and quit; if we meet challenges with the best effort we can muster, if we keep our courage and our faith in God.

Irving Ferman of International Latex testified that the $8,000 cash he gave Sen. Dodd had nothing to do with getting an ambassadorship for his boss, Abe Spanel. Yet Ferman earlier had told Jack Anderson just the opposite. Sanford Bomstein, the Washington nightclub operator, had signed a report saying that money raised for Dodd at a reception should be spent for various matters connected with the Senator's campaign. Yet before the Ethics Committee he reversed himself and said the money was raised for Dodd personally. Ivan Sinclair, former aide to President Johnson, gave the Ethics Committee an affidavit swearing that he had been told by Dodd's office that the purpose of a Connecticut dinner which Johnson addressed was to raise campaign funds. Yet when he got on the witness stand, Sinclair repudiated his own sworn affidavit. Under standard legal procedure, some of these conflicts in testimony would result inper- Jury charges. But It's a fairly safe bet the Senate Ethics Committee will do nothing about them. Incidentally, Bomstein, the nightclub operator who raised money for Dodd, did not mention one very Important fact. Dodd's Juvenile Delinquency Subcommittee had been investigating the sale of liquor to teenagers In the District of Columbia. Bomstein has owned four swinging nightclubs In Washington— the Rocket Room, Shelter Room, the Famous, and the Crazy Horse—all populur hangouts for teenagers. After Dodd became chairman of the Juvenile Delinquency Subcommittee, the investigation Into D. C. nightclubs w: s suddenly halted. So It's not surprising that Bomstein was happy to help raise money for Dodd. - o - — TRIUMPH FOR POWELL — When Adam Clayton Powell Is reelected to Congress In the special election in New York next month to fill the vacancy created by his own exclusion from the House of Representatives, don't be surprised If the House seats him. When the vote to bar him from the 90th Congress was taken, there were many strong statements that the same thing would happen if Harlem voted for him again. Some Representatives said the courts had no jurisdiction over Congress and would be ignored If they ordered that Powell be seated. Cooler heads have now pointed out that one of the big arguments against the Harlem favorite was that he had defied the courts of New York and that Congress wouldn't look too good itself if it did the same thing. So rather than put itself in Adam's position, this time it's a good bet the House will permit him to take his seat without too much fuss. - o - -KNOW YOUR GOVERNMENT — When Lawson Knott, head of the General Services Administration, delivered the last volume of Truman papers to ex-President Harry Truman in Independence, Mo., some time ago, it gave rise to an Idea of promoting more information regarding government. From this has sprung a new series of "information offices 1 ' in federal buildings to answer questions regarding anything pertaining to the federal government. In Denver, where one of the first of such offices was opened, the girl in charge answered'7,500 questions in one month ranging from income taxes to old-age pensions, federal water for irrigation and oil shale reserves for the Navy. Tuesday (March 21) Mayor James Daly will help Mr. Knott open an Information center in Chicago's Federal Building to explain government to the citizens of northern Illinois. - o - - CALIFORNIA'S WHITE GOLD- "I come from a state which used to be the great gold mining state of the United States, 1 ' Chief Justice Earl Warren recently told President Barrienlos of Bolivia. "California produced gold in the same way you produce tin. Gradually our gold supplies dwindled just as your tin supplies have dwindled. "Where I grew up as a boy at Bakersfield, Calif., the land •.vas almost a desert. The land grew cactus, Jack rabbits, prairie dogs and rattlesnakes. "Then we discovered that we could bring water down from the mountains in the north. We developed irrigation. "And now the whole central valley of California is blooming like a rose. We did it through water—white gold. "During the seventy years when gold mining prospered in my state,' continued the Chief Justice, who had been governor of California longer than any other man in history, "we made about $2 billion from gold. But from water— white gold—we have made more than §2 billion each year from the crops we grow in the central valley— as much in one year as we made from gold in seventy years.' The two men went on to discuss the possibility of harnessing the rivers which flow out of the great altoplano—the 13,000-foot high plateau which makes Bolivia one of the highest countries In the world.
