WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round WASHINGTON - One hundred and ten Congressmen are flying to Paris on a free airplane junket to see the Paris Air Show May 20, courtesy of Eastern Airlines and Douglas .Aircraft. While their trip will not cost the taxpayers travel expenses and we really don't begrudge the Congressmen a free ride especially to Paris - nevertheless the public should know about the trip because it may boost subsidies to airplane companies. The Congressmen will fly in a "stretched" version of the DC-8, which can carry over 200 passengers. Douglas is building the plane but has had to have federal funds to help finance it. Boeing Aircraft also has had federal funds for some of its big planes and expects more in the future. The chief purpose of the Paris junket is to show the Congressmen what the French, British and Russian governments have been doing to subsidize their airplane industries, with the idea that Congress should be more generous with U. S. subsidies. - o - - AIRBORNE MINISKIRTS - Airline stewardesses have threatened to strike if American Airlines goes ahead with its plan to put them in miniskirts. It seems the stewardesses prefer to have male eyes on airplanes focused up, not down. Also, the word from Paris is that hemlines are going down anyway. - o- - GOP POLITICKING - Richard Nixon has been busy in the smoke-filled political back rooms, lining up 1968 convention delegates, while Gov. George Romney of Michigan has been making speeches. As a result, while Romney may be ahead in the Presidential -polls, Nixon definitely is ahead in the scramble for delegates. Nixon, however, is leading the opinion polls in at least one state - New Hampshire, which holds the first Presidential primary next year. Both candidates also are actively courting ex-President Eisenhower, whose influence could be an important factor if he should decide to use it. Nixon reports to his former chief regularly. Romney sent Ike an advance text of his speech of Vietnam. Other Presidential hopefuls, such as Sen. Charles Percy of Illinois and Gov. Ronald Reagan of California, likewise are keeping in close touch with DREW PEARSON Gettysburg. Romney — less experienced than Nixon in politics - probably will announce his formal candidacy for the nomination in the fall, and may even receive Ike's blessing, though the general previously has been very cagey about endorsing any GOP candidate in advance of the convention. Dee did give his private backing to Gov. Scranton of Pennsylvania in 1964 in the "stop Goldwater" movement, but never went out on the limb publicly, and later changed his mind. But Dee never has particularly liked Nixon, said once at a news conference he would need some time to think of anything constructive Nixon had done as Vice President. Nor is the ex-President overly fond of the extreme right wing of the GOP which Reagan represents. So George Romney this time may get his nod. - o - - REPUBLICANS TOHOUSTON- The 1968 GOP convention, incidentally, may .be held In Houston, Tex. There's been no convention of either major party in Texas since the Democrats met in Houston in 1928 to nominate Al Smith, who lost to Herbert Hoover. But Texas— and Houston—have some strong attractions. Houston now is the center of our space efforts, and has a huge astrodome for sports which would be suitable for the convention. The state not only is a stronghold of wealthy rightwingers - despite Lyndon Johnson — but it does not have any strong candidate for the Republican nomination. Chicago has Sen. Charles Percy; California has Ronald Reagan; New York has Gov. Nelson Rockefeller, who still is under pressure to be a candidate again. Miami Beach has put in a generous bid for the conventions via Mayor Elliott Roosevelt, but Florida also may .have a candidate. GOP Gov. Claude Kirk was discussing party hopefuls with friends the other day, most of the talk centering on Romney and Nixon. Kirk suddenly interrupted the debate with the comment that the best candidate the Republicans could select would be Gov. Claude Kirk. - o - POLITICS AND ECONOMY - One of the paradoxes of politics is that those who scream the loudest against government spending often are the biggest spenders of the taxpayer's money •\ ,!

However, Klein spotted Kerner entering an elevator the other day in Springfield, barged into the elevator and asked Kerner why he was being ignored. Blandly the governor suggested that Klein contact his appointments secretary. Later, Kerner told his secretary to make sure he was out whenever Klein called. - o - - GEN. WESTMORELAND'S CHIEF GOAL- Gen. William Westmoreland has now won the chief point for which he came to the USA more troops. Real reason for his speech- Thursday, May It, 1967 Algeria (la.) Upper DCS Mo!n«s-3 making was to prepare the American people for an escalation of the war. At Guam, Westmoreland pleaded for at least 600,000 men, though he's told President Johnson he could use 750,000 or even a million. The President agreed to increase our manpower if Westmoreland would help sell the public on the need. Present troop schedule calls for 470,000 men by 1968. This will now be increased by at least 50,000 and probably 100,000.

Sen. Young of North Dakota has voted down the line against government spending — except in North Dakota. His state ranks second in euchering federal funds out of Washington - $269 of federal funds for every citizen of North Dakota. Former Sen. Simpson of Wyoming and his successor, Sen. Hansen, have even more rigid records of government economy. Yet Wyoming ranks third in getting federal funds. Every Wyoming citizen gets $262 from Washington. The loudest economy advocate of all is Sen. Karl Mundt of South Dakota. He is against government spending everywhere except in South Dakota. But he is pleased to vote $211 of Washington money for every citizen in South Dakota. - o- QUALIFICATIONS OF JUDGES- Robert Nix, Jr., son of the Philadelphia Congressman, who is paid $20,000 a year by Uncle Sam to assist his father but who almost never works in the Congressman's office, now has had the gall to run for judge of the Common Pleas Court in Philadelphia. Young Nix's race is particularly interesting because he was once brought up before Judge Michael J. O'Donnell in a paternity suit. Young Nix and the Congressman, his father, finally paid the mother $3,500 for support of the illegitimate child and the judge ruled "that since she did not wish to prosecute any further, under the circumstances I will enter a verdict of not guilty." Now young Nix argues he is qualified to be a judge himself, since technically he never was convicted in the case. - o - - CUBAN DEFECTOR AT EXPO 67- A Cuban crewman from the Pino de Agua, the ship that delivered Fidel Castro's exhibition to Expo 67 in Canada, has secretly defected. He is Genaro Aguilera, who walked off his ship -and telephoned a friend in Miami, who directed him to a Montreal restaurant which is the headquarters for the Cuban underground in Canada. Aguilera told the Cuban underground leaders in Montreal that 40 or 50 of the Cubans assigned to the Expo 67 exhibition would like to defect, but are afraid that Canadian authorities would ship them back to Cuba. - o - - KLEIN'S EASY ACCESS- Gen. Julius Klein, the Chicago public relations man, has lost his easy access to the high and mighty since his strange relationship with Sen. Dodd was exposed. Klein has been unable to get past the outer office of Gov. Otto Kerner, and his letters to Top lull. Chi.'vy II Nova Station Wiiijon.
