Matlilas, R.- Md., picked out of the dusty files of the Eisenhower administration a resolution passed by both houses of Congress July 11, 1958, which every Congressman and his employees should read, including Sen. Tom Dodd, D-Conn. It not only set up a code of ethics for government service but clearly specified that "all government servants" must "expose corruption wherever discovered." The code definitely puts an obligation on the employees of Senators and Congressmen to report any wrongdoing by that Senator or Congressman-- which is exactly what the employees of Sen. Dodd finally did. Several of his staff had been with him a long time. Jim Boyd, his administrative assistant, had campaiged for him even before he joined his staff, helped him get elected. Most are, as Dodd, Catholics. He was their hero. But when they saw what he was doing, gradually disillusioned, they finally decided they had to follow the code of ethics which they had learned as youngsters and which was restated in the long forgotten "Code of Ethics for Government Service" adopted in 1958. - o -- DODD'S CHILDREN -- There Is nothing the taxpayers can provide that is too good for Sen. Dodd's six children. He has put two of his boys on the Senate payroll -- Jeremy at $125 and Tom Jr. at $120 a week. But all the children have charged meals, phone calls and other incidentals to his Senate account. When son Chris was attending Providence College, he made, long-distance calls to girl friends around the country and charged them to the Senate as official business. - o — CASE OF SANFORD BOMSTEIN-- There is an interesting story involving the friendship between DREW PEARSON Sen. Tom Dodd and Sanford Bomstein who loaned $5,000 to Dodd in 1958 and raised $12,804 for him at a D. C. reception in 19G3, part of which was used to pay Bomsteln back. Bomstein Is a former cigar- store owner In Bridgeport, Conn., who moved to Washington to conduct four swinging nightclubs and restaurants. He operates the "Rocket Room" on New York Avenue where the teenage swingers congregate. It is the most popular rock 'n' roll rendezvous In downtown Washington. Alongside it is "The Famous," a hillbilly restaurant. In addition, Bomstein operates the "Shelter Room" In Southeast Washington and once operated the "Crazy Horse" in Georgetown until the Georgetown Citizens Association determined to close up "the Georgetown strip," at which time Bomstein moved out. His record with the police Is good. Shortly before Bomstein helped raise the $12,804 at the 1963 "D. C. Reception for Dodd," the Senator from Connecticut was being pressed by Internal Revenue on a previous Income tax payment. He owed the government $13,300 and Internal Revenue notified him that it had waited for payment as long as it could. If there was further delay, IRS agrents threatened to open his books. This was something Dodd obviously did not want. At this point he borrower! $7,500 from Lazarus Hayman, a Connecticut financier who operates the Gateway Finance Company. Dodd had secured an appointment for Sam Hayman, son of the financier, as Assistant U. S. Attorney in Hartford. Since Dotltl Is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee he had Influence with Justice Department and had no trouble getting the appointment. After borrowing the $7,500 from Hayman, Dodd needed $6,000 more to fulfill the $13,500 debt to Internal Revenue. So he transferred $6,000 from the D. C. reception funds raised by Bomstein to Dodd's personal account In the Rlggs Bank and with It paid Internal Revenue $6,000. Six months later, around February, 1964, when Dodd's accountant was preparing his Income tax returned, he discovered the $6,000 taken from the "D. C. Reception" fund and warned Dodd that this would have to be treated either as income or a loan. If a loan, he advised Dodd that it would have to be repaid before the 1964 election campaign was over. He advised Dodd that It could be repaid from another campaign fund. This latter advice Is important because it shows that the money raised for Dodd was considered as campaign money, not as personal gifts, as the Senator now alleges. Senator Dodd waited six months, then in October, 1964, secured another loan from his friend Lazarus Hayman, which he paid to the Dodd for Senate Committee. - o - — GUAM BACKGROUND — Behind the President's long trip half-way across the Pacific to Guam and back is his desire to make sure that U. S. military leaders are putting enough emphasis on the civilian and political rebuilding of South Vietnam. From a military viewpoint the_ war is going well. There have been Viet Cong desertions sometimes as high as 400 a day. It's only natural, however, that the military should concentrate on military problems. Yet solution of the civilian problems, the President feels, may be the final factor in ending the war. This means the reconstruction of villages, building of schools, improving the water supply, distribution of food and, most important of all, the formation of a solid civilian government. In 1966 South Vietnam made amazing strides in electing a constituent assembly and making a start toward nationwide elections for a new president. Working behind the scenes, Johnson has pushed this hard. He had vivid memories of Buddhists burning themselves in the streets last year and knew that without equa- Yellow Pages INDEX — Front of Yellow Pages is your INSURANCE ADEQUATE • •CW.INC.

The forthcoming meeting on Guam will make sure that progress toward full civilian government continues. - o - — SHAKE-UP IN VIETNAM — The President took with him to Guam Lt. Gen. Bruce Palmer who did such a good job in the Dominican Republic. And since the end of the term of Gen. William Westmoreland is long overdue and he needs a rest, It's possible Palmer may later replace him. Westmoreland is given credit for the current victories and will occupy a high place In the Pentagon. Also accompanying the President to Guam was David Lllien- thal, for a long time head of the Tennesse Valley Authority and former chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission. Lllienthal is an old New Dealer whom Johnson knew back In the days when he was a young Congressman from Texas pushing dams and Irrigation In the Southwest. The President has long cherished the idea of developing the Mekong River into another TVA project for an Irrigation, power and navigation system which would enrich not merely South Vietnam but Cambodia, Laos, Thailand & N.Vietnam, The idea was given him originally by Arthur "Tex" Goldschmidt, who worked with Harold Ickes and David Lllienthal in the old dam- buildinf? days of the New Deal. Lilienthal will go to the Far East to push the Mekong River plan personally. "Guam is a long way to go," the President remarked at a recent staff conference, "andthe newspapermen will grumble. But I think it will be worthwhile."
