WASHINGTON Merry-Co-Rcund BREW PEARSON WASHINGTON- Russia's present Premier, Alexei Kosygin, showed during his conferences with President Johnson that he had learned one thing well from the experience of his predecessor, Nikita Khrushchev. He listened when the Kremlin spoke. When Khrushchev was ousted, he had been traveling frequently, paying less and less attention to what party colleagues thought. One of the chief charges against him was that he was not carrying out Kremlin instructions. But Kosygin played it differently. In the first session at Glassboro, N. J., he was relatively friendly and relaxed, seemed amenable to Johnson's persuasiveness. In fact, LBJ gave every indication he felt things were going very well indeed. But, after the Friday session, Kosygin cabled a full report to Moscow and asked for advice and instructions. He got them. The U. S. Embassy in Moscow has learned that a special meeting was called to consider Kosy- gin's report. With President Podgorny, like Kosygin comparatively moderate, out of the country also, the hardliners were in charge. They told Kosygin to be tough. And he followed orders in the Sunday meeting, making no concessions except on the nuclear non-proliferation treaty. Nevertheless, the Kosygin- Johnson talks are considered to have been well worthwhile - not for the concrete results attained but for the atmosphere they created. The two leaders got to know each other; found that each "had a sense of humor. And while they couldn't agree on many points, neither indulged in recrimination or polemics. Kosygin showed early in the Friday conference that he was not as icy as he usually is pictured in public. He "pulled rank" by telling LBJ, "I have been a grandfather for 18 years; you have been a grandfather for 18 hours." Though no agreement was reached on how to solve the Near East crisis, diplomatic sources in Washington believe that Johnson was able to persuade Kosygin that the U.S. does not want agression there. As to Vietnam, Kosygin showed considerable restraint. The two conferees simply recognized it as a deadlock. Soviet experts realize that the United States has put so much military manpower into Vietnam that we cannot pull out without some sort of a face-saving arrangement, and that they themselves are powerless to influence Hanoi toward negotiations. President Johnson reported to his Cabinet that Kosygin was straightforward, dignified, lawyer like, arguing a case for his country. There was no raising of the voice, no shoe-pounding, no threats - just a matter-of- fact argument. Johnson re- ported: "We both understood each other. We didn't get mad. We didn't call each other names. He didn't try to bulldoze me. He didn't point his finger at me or shout and I didn't do that to him. He represented his country in a reasonable way." - o - - ANTI-MISSILE SYSTEM Ifs now almost certain that the United States will proceed with building a $40 billion antiballistic missile system to protect approximately 25 American cities. President Johnson and Secretary of Defense McNamara have done their best to avoid this expenditure. Not only will it increase the budget to the highest point in history, but Johnson is mindful of the inevitable competition among Senators and Congressmen to get their cities included in the 25 to be protected. At Glassboro, McNamara and Johnson put up a final plea to Premier Kosygin for negotiations to head off an ABM race. Kosygin argued that the United States, being ahead of Russia in offensive missiles, wants to prevent Russia from having an adequate defense. He claimed that offensive weapons are always cheaper than defense; that Russia traditionally has been on the defensive and it cannot be denied the right to adequate defenses today. Kosygin knew, of course, that he was playing into the hands of right-wing military Congressmen, led by Rep. Mendel Rivers, D-S.C., who long have criticized McNamara for holding back on the ABM. The Soviet embassy in Washington had thoroughly briefed Kosygin in advance. However, he had instructions from Moscow and stood pat. - o - CIGARETTE WARNINGS The Public Health Service is STRONG Make Strong Communities "Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that in due time he may exalt yon." —1 Peter 5:6 Who do you think you are? Do you stand above the crowd? Do you look down your nose at the rest of the world? Do you excuse yourself the little faults, the omissions you condemn in others? 13e sure that your pride is not a false pride. Every man should have pride in his just accomplishments and, therefore a good opinion of himself; yet pride must be justified, and within reasonable limits; else, it becomes a sickness that is called ego-maina. So, be careful, as you look at the world — be certain that you take time to look at yourself.

The Pass" Thursday, July 6, 1967 Algeria (la.) Upper DCS Mein«i-3 Republicans in the House will continue to Tight President Johnson's proposed income tax increase, 6th district Congressman Wiley Mayne promised in a speech at Okoboji Sunday night. "We've been able to head LBJ*s 6% tax boost off for the first 6 months of the 90th congress," Mayne stated. "We've done so by lopping a few hundred millions off the President's big spending programs here and there whenever we see an opening. For example, rent subsidies, model cities "demonstrations" and some departmental appropriations have been cut. "On Thursday we reduced the space budget by more than 200 millions on the floor after earlier committee action reducing it another 100 million below the President's askings. "Only by such savings can we have any hope of avoiding a tax increase," Mayne continued. "And savings will not be possible without the continued help of Democratic Congressmen who refuse to buckle under Presidential arm-twisting. "The President is already planning even bigger spending and higher taxes," Mayne claimed. "His economic adviser Gardner Ackley hinted last week that LBJ will not be satisfied with the 6% hike he demanded in January. They are talking now of a flat 10% income tax boost which will hit all taxpayers large and small. They refuse to consider any reduction in the experimental new domestic projects proposed by the President." Mayne concluded "Republican Congressmen will fight this new raid on the taxpayers by Johnson's spenders. We intend to head them off at the pass." Govt. Study Iowa local governments stand to benefit from two new grants to Iowa State University by the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare. The grants support two programs, one to identify problems at the local level of government, the other to provide information on inter- governmental relations. More than $12,000 was awarded to Iowa State for the two programs which are being administered by Jack M. whitmer, Jr., extension associate in local government. ST.

'; - o - - REPUBLICANS SEE GAINS House Republicans are becoming cautiously optimistic about capturing a majority of the House in 1968. They have a strong feeling that any rise in President Johnson's popularity is temporary and that by Election Day 1968 he'll be in deep trouble- probably both domestically and abroad. The Republicans plan to concentrate their greatest efforts in districts that they consider vulnerable: Those that are substantially Republican though they may now have a Democratic Congressman, those where Republicans made a good showing against Democratic incumbents in 1966, and those where Democrats were elected to Congress while Republicans were voted into major state offices. They're also counting on the fact that 25 states now have Republican politics - and the National Republican Organization is trying to build a war chest that will give every one of their candidates in the 111 districts they intend to fight for next year a campaign fund of at least $10,000, and preferably $15,000. GOP leaders say they need to hold all the seats they now have in Congress and pick up 31 more to get a majority in the House. To do this, they'll concentrate their efforts in New York, California, Texas, New Jersey, Illinois, Massachusetts and Florida, and in four or five districts each in Kentucky, Michigan and Pennsylvania. - o - - NIXON STILL RUNNING ~ A secret Gallup Poll shows ex-Vice President Nixon running ahead of Gov, George Romney in New Hampshire, 67 to 30. If you include other Republican contenders, Nixon leads the list with 50 per cent, Gov. Rockefeller third with 13 per cent, and Gov. Reagan of California close behind with 11 per cent. New Hampshire is the only state, however, where Nixon out- polls Romney. -ISRAELIS COULD IDENTIFY LIBERTY- On June 16, Drew Pearson re* ported the circumstances under which Israel attacked the U.S.S. Liberty in broad daylight at 2 p. m. with ample time to make reconnaisance of the ship and know what it was. He raised serious doubts as to whether the attack was really a mistake. On June 29, a Naval Board of Inquiry raised almost identical questions, pointing out that Israeli planes "had ample opportunity to identify the Liberty correctly" and that several Israeli planes had passed over the Liberty during the morning prior to the attack. At least 22 per cent of the nation's annual perfume sales occur In December.
