WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Roiud WASHINGTON - Sen. William Fulbrlght and other members of the Foreign Relations Committee may have done President Johnson a big favor by refusing to pass the resolution LBJ requested for the Latin American Siimmit Conference in Uruguay this week. The general attitude In Latin America is that the United States usually talks big about being a good neighbor but doesn't do much. Thus the statesmen as well as the people view with considerable synicism our pronouncements of good intentions. They recall, for example, the rather superficial social gathering they had with President Eisnehower in Panama eleven years ago. When the Senate Committee refused to give Johnson the advance endorsement he had requested this time, it came as no great surprise to the Latin Americans because it was about par for U. S. policy. But where it may have served Johnson well is that it has made him appear as one United States leader who genuinely seems to want to help in Latin American problems; he therefore will be classed as a friend who is doing his best despite difficult circumstances. And it may mean that he will be far more effective than otherwise would have been possible. Actually, the President went to great lengths to get Senate approval of. his program to aid Latin America. He consulted ftlRW FEARSOM about 40 Congressmen and senators in advance, though there was no requirement at all that he do this. The obstreperous behavior of the Foreign Relations Committee won LBJ another plus - the support of one of his severest critics, Sen. Wayne Morse of Oregon. Morse castigated his fellow Senators as being "completely unfair. You kick the President when he doesn't consult you, and now when he does consult you, you kick him again." The Punta del Este conference will accomplish no miracles. But it may achieve important first steps toward a Pan American common market, stabilization of commodity prices so vital to the economics of the South, a breaking down of the jealousies and nationalistic barriers to cooperation among South American nations particularly, as well as wider education and social progress,, If so, it will be a success partly due to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee's refusal to give President Johnson the advance support he requested. - o - - CONSERVATIVE PRESIDENT - One of the complaints of Gov. Lester Maddox of Georgia against President Johnson has been that he is too liberal. At the recent Governors' Conference with the President at the White House, Maddox decided he is too conservative. Maddox and the President got along very well in general - but they didn't talk about integration. Instead, they mostly discussed the more prosaic subject of highways. Maddox wanted the President to release more funds for highway construction in Georgia, under the Federal Highway Program where Uncle Sam picks up 90 per cent of the tab. Since Johnson has frozen a lot of highway funds, this has cut back on the roadbuilding program. Johnson explained to Maddox that government expenses are high, the war in Vietnam has forced a reduction in many federal spending programs, and that he has to keep a tight rein on many domestic projects. Maddox was not entirely happy to find LBJ so conservative with money. - o - -PARADISE LOST- Adam Clayton Powell's Bimini paradise is turning sour - so sour, in fact, that his closest friends and advisers are deeply concerned. He's begun to feel isolated and persecuted, partly because the whole world doesn't seem to agree he's being mistreated. And he's taking it out on those supporters who do feel he's been given a raw deal. "One minute he's pleasant and charming, the next minute he's cutting your guts out," according to one admirer who flew down to see him. "That's why they can't get anybody down there to see him except the odd-balls. And Adam even thinks some of them have come to spy on him." Ifs so bad that the End-of-the- World Bar has lost some of its appeal, and his girl friend, Corinne Huff, is beginning to show signs of being less than happy, However, Adam has been prevailed upon to give fewer press conferences and to tone down some of his comments. And he also has been persuaded to do STRONG CHURCHES.. Make Strong Communities Afoot U "Worthy art thou, Our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for thou didst create all things, and by thy will they existed and were created." — Reveleation 4:11 Unless you walk through the world with your eyes closed, you must find something to wonder about. In the miracle of birth, in the happy hours of new life, when it's green-up time in the valleys and hills, when dark clouds are rolled aside and a rainbow reaches across the sky, when spring follows winter as summer always gives way to fall; do you not wonder about the orderly fashion of time and things? "Where art thou Adam?" — the Bible begins with God looking for man. Have you ever looked for God?

Uusually Adam enjoys publicity about his flamboyance, including pictures featuring him with a bosomy fire dancer. He relishes the shocked outrage some of his utterances bring. But now he is working-a little- at behaving himself. This is what started his series of weekly outdoor sermons on Sundays. The Bimini natives pay no attention to him, but curious tourists do attend. And Adam doesn't care why they come as long as he has an audience which news cameramen can photograph. Yet his close friends say that unless something happens to get him away from his Bimini paradise, and his obsessions, the End- of-the-World Bar may be the end of the world for Adam Clayton Powell. He's teetering on the verge of a nervous crackup. - o - - VIETNAM FACE-SAVING - Before Secretary General U Thant departed on another peace mission to Asia, he had another urgent meeting with Ambassador Arthur Goldberg, reporting that he had received positive assurances from the communists that they would agree to truce talks if the bombing is halted. U Thant pleaded that an unconditional suspension in the bombing is absolutely necessary so that the North Vietnamese can go to the truce table without losing face. Meanwhile, captured enemy documents assert that the U. S. Army would need a million men to conquer and pacify both the Mekong Delta and the mountain area of Vietnam at the same time. This is more than double the number of troops we have in Vietnam today. Significantly, the North Vietnamese estimate coincides almost exactly with what General Westmoreland has been telling the Pentagon and the President. Incidentally, Gen. John McConnell, Air Force ChiefofStaff, has complained privately that the United States has been dumping more bombs on North Vietnam than Hitler rained on Britain during the height of World War U. Yet all this bombing has merely knocked out a few barges, sampans, trucks, bridges and railroads. The same tonnage could have completely crippled North Vietnam by now, McConnell said, if the Air Force had been permitted to strike strategic tar gets. - o - - FUNNELING CIA FUNDS - It will be vociferously denied, but some of the South's most vocal opponents of civil rights have either overlooked or sanctioned under-the-table CIA aid to help Negro voting registration and militant civil rights groups. The CIA money was tunneled through private foundations right under the nose of the Central Intelligence Watchdog Committee headed by Sen. Dick Russell, Georgia Democrat, and Rep. Mendel Rivers, the South Carolina Democrat. Both have made speeches and led filibusters denouncing the civil rights movement. Yet they permitted CIA funds to go to civil rights groups in the same manner that CIA money went to student groups. The disclosure emphasizes the importance of the drive led by Sen. Eugene McCarthy, D-Minn., and Sen. William Fulbright, D- Ark., to put members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on the CIA Watchdog group, now composed solely of members from the House and Senate Armed Services Committee. This drive was defeated last fall when Russell emphatically proclaimed that his committee knew what CIA was doing. Obviously it didn't On the Watchdog Committee, in addition to Russell and Rivers, are such Southern stalwarts as John Stennls, D-Mlss., Sam Ervln, D-N. C., and Strom Thurmond, R-S. C.; together with 0. C. Fisher, Tex., Elliott Hagan, Ga., and Alton Lennon, N. C. - all Democrats. - o - - CIA'S SECRET CHANNELS - The main conduit for CIA money to help the Negro voter registration drive was the Southern Regional Council, which received $60,000 of CIA funds in 1963. The money was channeled through the New World Foundation. In 1962, $6,000 of CIA funds went to the Southern Regional Council through the Aaron E. Norman Fund. In 1962, the Georgia Council on Human Relations also got $2,600 of CIA money from the Norman fund. The National Student Association, which received massive contributions of cia money, was also encouraged by the CIA to push voter registration drives in the South. Justification for using CIA funds was to quiet disastrous foreign publicity caused by civil rights violence. The Norman Fund, incidentally, has also contributed to CORE'S scholarship and educational fund, the Lawyers' Constitutional Defense Committee, and the League for Industrial Democracy, all vigorous civil rights advocates. Note: Fund officials deny any knowledge of CIA financial ties; nevertheless they are a fact.

Through the years, cooperatives have enlarged the scope of their operations . .. starting first with retailing of petroleum products, then expanding into wholesaling, refining and production. Cooperative action has helped to maintain the quality of petroleum products, raised standards of service, and has been a factor in restraining the upward trend of prices. Cooperatives in the petroleum industry help assure that progress for one is progress for all. Cooperatives help more people share in America''s progress 100 years of petroleum On August 27, 1859, at a drilling site near Titusville, Pennsylvania, Colonel Edwin L. Drake brought in America's first artesian oil well. This year marks the first centennial of the American petroleum industry. LONE ROCK CO-OP EXCHANGE —_ Lorenz Geitzenauer, Mgr.
