Andrews, Mankato, Minn., son of Mr. vand Mrs. Dean Andrews, Burt, were united In marriage March 24, 1967, at 7:30 p. m., at the First Me.thodist church In Algona. Rev. Wm. Noland officiated at the double ring ceremony. The bride, given In marriage by her father, wore a white floor- length gown, designed by herself, featuring an empire waistline and a sweeping chapel train falling from the shoulders. Garlands of lace adorned the hemline, waistline and long tapered sleeves. Her shoulder length veil of Illusion tulle fell from a crown of organdy and pearl flowers. She wore a diamond cross necklace, a gift from the groom, and carried a cascade bouquet of croft lilies. Mrs. Dean Willrett, Mankato, Minn., was maid of honor and Pamela Andrews, sister of the groom, served as bridesmaid. The bride's personal attendant was Kay Isaacson of Ft. Dodge. Paula Struthers, Wesley, was flower girl and Keith Broesder, Algona, ring-bearer. Kirk Struthers, Algona, served as best man, and Lloyd Broesder, brother of the bride, was groomsman. The ushers were Edward Broesder, Algona, Dean Willrett, Mankato, Minn., Michael Scott and Leroy Davis of Burt. John Lovstad, soloist, was accompanied by Mrs. Rex Taylor, organist. Following the ceremony, a reception was held in the church fellowship hall for 200 guests. Mrs. Michael Scott, Burt, registered the guests; Mrs. Edward f Broesder and Mrs. Lloyd Broesder cut the cake; Mrs. Henry Mertz, Wesley, poured, and Bernice Walker and Mrs. Clifford Lovstad, aunts of the bride, served punch.

(Photo by Poundstone Studio) WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round WASHINGTON -r The Senate Ethics Committee has let it be known that it has decided to discipline - but not expel - Connecticut's high-spending Sen. Tom Dodd, and that it will dig no deeper into charges against him. This means that some of the most serious of Dodd's misdoings will be swept under the Senate rug. It is against the law, for example, for a member of Congress to represent a paying client before a federal agency. Dodd did this. But there are so many practicing attorneys In the Senate that the Ethics Committee deliberately did not explore this area. It's also against the law for a member of Congress to accept anything of value In return for helping a contractor get a government contract. This column would gladly furnish the Ethics Committee with a list of 29 corporations which Dodd helped In Washington and from which he received favors in return. The Senator also accepted favors from companies that were under investigation by his Senate committees. All this, too, will be swept under the rug. There can hardly be any question that Dodd used $173,000 contributed to his campaign funds for personal expenses, but the committee is not likely to be harsh about this-Senators tend to be sympathetic where the costs of holding public office are concerned. The committee may even skirt the issue of Dodd's performing as an errand boy for West German agent Julius Klein because many Senators do favors for lobbyists. The one hook the Ethics Committee will find it difficult to DREW PEARSON escape is the fact — conceded by Dodd In his stipulation with the committee — that he charged the government for many trips for which his expenses were paid by private groups. Since Dodd has admitted this, though blaming his staff, he must be found guilty. But only a few hundred dollars are involved in these expense charges, not hundreds of thousands. So the Ethics Committee may wind up slapping the Connecticut Senator's wrist, telling him he's a naughty boy and mustn't do it any more. However, an official Senate .whitewash will not clear Dodd or the Senate in public opinion especially after the ouster of Adam Clayton Powell by the House for lesser offenses. Thus, a coat of whitewash for Dodd will turn out to be another coat of tarnish for the Senate as a whole - at a time when the Senate's prestige is at the lowest ebb In the many years this columnist has been covering Washington. - o - -CIA WATCHDOGS- The Central Intelligence Agency is supposed to be policed by a watchdog committee of Congress. On this committee are many prominent Southerners, ranging from Sen. Russell of Georgia to Rep. Mendel Rivers of South Carolina. They have told their colleagues that they have scrutinized Central Intelligence carefully and know what it's doing and what it's spending its money for. But this column can reveal that CIA has spent more than $65,000 promoting civil rights in the South and Negro voter registration. This means either that the segregationist Southern "watchdogs" secretly approved the CIA's civil rights activities- or just didn't know what the CIA was doing, and so were not acting as watchdogs at all. This is one that should not be hard to figure out. - o - - PIPELINE LOBBYISTS GAINING The big oil and gas companies are moving heaven and earth to cut the heart out of the bill to regulate pipelines so as to prevent explosions such as those which have killed several people in the last few years. The gas companies simply do not want the federal government to set safety standards for the 700,000 miles of gas transmission pipe covering the United States. They particularly want to bar from any federal regulation the distribution lines which carry gas from the main trunk lines. It was a distribution line which exploded In Queens In January and burned down 12 city blocks. The pipeline lobbyists have. won three Senators to their cause - Mike Monroney, D-Okla., and Hugh Scott, R-Pa., both members of the Senate Commerce Committee which will hold the hearings on the bill, plus Tom Kuchel, R-Calif. And they're seeking to postpone the hearings, now scheduled for April 19, to gain time to win more converts. They're also pressuring Joseph Califano of the White House staff and Secretary of Transportation Alan Boyd. Boyd is reported ready to support a weakening of the administration bill. * -o- - BOBBY'S COME-UPPANCE When Sen. Bobby Kennedy traveled through Europe recently, he conferred with prime ministers and heads of state as If he were President of the United States. He then returned talking about a peace feeler from North Vietnam. Yet while Bobby was doing this, Ho Chi Minn definitely and curtly vetoed President Johnson's direct Invitation to talk peace. Johnson, though he could have slapped back at Sen. Kennedy by publishing Ho Chi Minn's harsh note, did' not do so. It was Ho who finally made it public. LBJ*s only public comment was to say that he wished some of his critics were better Informed as to the facts before they popped off. In any event, Hanoi's publication of Ho Chi Minn's message to Johnson, followed by rejection of U.N. Secretary General Thant's truce proposals, has cut the ground from under Bobby's theories. This may be why the New York Senator has quieted down lately and even has said he will not allow his name to be placed in Presidential primaries next year. This may ease some of the bitterness between the President and Kennedy which if unchecked could cause serious trouble for the Democrats In next year's Presidential elections. - o - CAUTIOUS LBJ- Some European leaders are miffed at President Johnson for scheduling trips to Asia and Latin America while sending Vice President Humphrey to Europe. The truth is that the President wanted to go to Europe but was warned he would get a frosty reception everywhere except London. Prime Minister Harold Wilson has become a close friend of Johnson's and would have given him a warm reception in England, But LB J was told that President de Gaulle would not welcome him to France, and that he could expect a whilly welcome elsewhere. So Johnson decided to send Humphrey to test the European waters first. - o - - THE LADY FROM MAINE Sen. Margaret Chase Smith, the lady from Maine, was scrutinizing promotions in the Air Force Reserve some time ago when she found a man, Col. Sam Goddard, being proposed for a promotion to brigadier general although he had performed only one-sixth of the required time for such promotion. There was no description of Sam Goddard appended to the proposed promotion. Sen. Smith asked the Air Force why he was being promoted if he hadn't put In the required period of service. The Air Force replied that Goddard couldn't take time away from "campaigning" so had asked for a waiver. Mrs. Smith asked why he was given a waiver, and the Air Force replied that he was governor of Arizona. When word got out that Sen. Smith opposed Goddard's promotion, there came a strong telegram from another Arizonan, named Goldwater, urging the Senate Armed Services Committee to confirm Goddard. Goldwater is a Republican, Goddard a Democrat; but reserve officers stick together regardless of politics. Mrs. Smith, however, though also a Republican, remained unmoved by the telegram from her fellow Republican in Arizona. "If Goldwater could put In his training time while campaigning for president in 50 states," she remarked, "I can't understand why Col. Goddard couldn't get in his training time while campaigning for governor In one state." As a result, Goddard failed on his promotion. He Is now up for consideration again. - o- - PROPOSED PEACE MISSION- Some of LBiPs friends have suggested that he call in U. N. Secretary General ThantandSen. Bobby Kennedy of New York, place Air Force One at their disposal and tell them to fly to Hanoi to talk peace with President Ho Chi Minn. It would be interesting to see whether Ho would make any more concessions to Bobby than to Lyndon. If s also suggested that the peace party might include Cardinal Spellman of New York, who helped get the United States bogged down in Vietnam in the first place; also ex-Vice President Nixon, the most eager- beaver war hawk of the Eisenhower administration. - o - - NEWSPAPER STRIKES- Long overdue is a Congressional investigation of the effect of labor unions on the decreasing number of newspapers in the USA. There have now been either newspaper strikes or drastic union demands In New York in 1962, 1963, 1965 and 1966, with another strike now looming. One prolonged newspaper strike caused the death of a great newspaper, the New York Herald-Tribune, which had molded American political opinion for almost a century. At one time the AFL-CIO considered starting a national newspaper in order to present labor news fairly. It also advanced over $100,000 to the old Los Angeles News to keep it from folding. But simultaneously union demands have Increased publishing costs to the point that newspaper after newspaper has had to fold or combine with its competitor. Obviously newspaper monopoly RENT GARDEN TILLERS BY DAY OR HOUR ALSO • LAWN ROLLERS • LAWN SEEDERS • POWER LAWN SWEEPERS • FLOOR SANDERS COAST TO COAST STORES defeats labor's goal of news competition. At one time Rep. Emanuel Celler, D-N.Y., chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, started a probe of newspaper monopoly but, like so many of Manny's probes, it mysteriously faded away. No one ever knew what happened, and his law firm isn't telling. intnniiiiniiiiiininiiniiiiniiiiiiiiiniiiiiHiiiiiiniiiinnitiiinntHH HOSPITAL NEWS MARCH 29 - Admitted: Anna Meyer, Fenton, medical; Louisa Lieb, Algona, medical; dismissed: Mrs. David Ryg and baby, Mrs. Andrew Gotten and baby, Mrs. Henry Otto, Mrs. Myrtle Sorenson, Algona.
