WASHINGTON Meiry-Go-Round WASHINGTON - This column has reported previously that some of the governments and foreign leaders we support with military or economic aid are notably less than grateful. This was well illustrated at the United Nations in the showdown vote over Israel. With the chips down between the United States and Russia, Franco's Spain voted with Russia against the U. S. We have poured billions of dollars into Spain, and Franco in theory is strongly anti-Russian, but Spain cast an anti-U. S. vote. So did Greece, where we have spent over $3 billion for military aid, which the Truman doctrine and Marshall Plan saved from communism, and where the militarists we have nurtured are now in control. _So did Turkey, where we have spent more than $10 billion for the Turkish military; and Pakistan, where we have spent over $5 billion and India, whose people still must depend on the U. S. to avert starvation. Even Thailand, where we have 30,000 men and eight air bases which help support its dictatorship, and whose King and Queen were entertained at the White House a few days ago, voted against the U. S. It does seem it might be a good idea for our State Department to review some of the aid we give abroad; it might be a good idea to help our friends more and non-friends less. - o - -BEWARE OF GIFTS - The "government of the colonels" now ruling Greece has given Andreas Papandreou, its No. 1 political prisoner, a cell with a window opening out on the street. There are no bars on the window. This strange setup could be an invitation to Papandreou to try to escape. Then it could be claimed he was shot and killed while fleeing prison. Or it might be a plot to permit an enemy of Papandreou to get into his window and kill him. Papandreou is the former pro- 1 fessor at the University of California who became a member of the Greek cabinet and who dared challenge the caste system inside the Greek army when his father was prime minister. - o - - NUCLEAR FALLOUT THREAT- A secret CIA report has warned that nuclear weapons, in effect, may be used in the next Arab- Israeli outbreak. The report estimates that both Israel and Egypt are now able to build so-called "garbage bombs" which use regular explosives but are filled with radioactive "waste". Both countries operate secret nucelar plants which could produce such "waste". Israel tried to disguise its Demona nuclear plant in the Negev desert as a textile plant until the CIA discovered its true function. This alarmed President Kennedy, who got a pledge from Israel that she would produce no nuclear weapons. However, Jewish nuclear physicists from the United States and France have been invited to Israel for secret, mysterious consultations. At the same time, German scientists are reported to be directing the secret work in Egypt. The CIA claims that neither the Israeli nor Egyptian plants are not capable of producing finished atomic bombs. But they could produce "garbage bombs" - o - _ NASSER'S FUTURE Russian diplomats have confided that Nasser has lost his hold on the Egyptian government and is in serious danger of being ousted. He still has strength with the Egyptian people, but the army is smoldering with resentment and there is danger of revolt even though 600 officers have been purged. Nasser's real test will come when Egypt uses up its wheat reserves - which will be about in one month. The Soviet crop is not as large this year as last and, besides, the Russians require the Egyptians to pay which Washington did not. There will be no U. S. wheat to save him this year. If the Egyptian people get hungry, Nasser will be out. PREW PEARIOM - KHRUSHCHEV SCOOP- The National Broadcasting Company pumped out publicity about how the network scooped the world by obtaining movies and tapes of ex-Premier Khrushchev in retirement. Actually, the story was dugout by Jess Gorkin, editor of Parade Magazine, who included NBC in on the deal to help defray expenses. Under the agreement, Parade was supposed to come out with the story two days ahead of the NBC telecast. NBC, for its part, was given exclusive movies and tapes that couldn't be reproduced in the magazine. But NBC pulled a fast one on Gorkin and released details of the story in advance. As a result, NBC, not Parade, got credit for the scoop. - o - - GOP SCR AMBLE- Liberal Republicans are scrambling to get themselves straightened out so that their party won't have another Goldwater as its candidate next year. And so far they're having difficulties akin to those of 1964. Gov. John Volpe of Massachusetts, for example, would like to be the Republican nominee for Vice President. To get in a good bargaining position, he not only plans to run in the Massachusetts primary but that in New Hampshire as well. The delegates he would pick up in these two contests would enable him to bargain. But if Volpe does enter the New Hampshire primary he will take votes away from Gov. George Romney of Michigan-and this would further hurtRomney's already dim chances against Richard Nixon in this first primary of 1968. And if Romney should be massacred by Nixon in New Hampshire it could mean the end of his Presidential hopes. It also would just about stymie the party liberals trying to get rid of their Goldwater hangover. This is why Gov. Volpe was summoned to New Hampshire last week to talk with the vacationing Romney, and why former Gov. William Scranton of Pennsylvania used his 25th wedding anniversary this past weekend to get the party's top liberals together to try to work out their problems. - o - - ARAB PILOTS IN USA - The diplomatic world is still marvelling at the success of President Nasser in putting across the Big Lie - that U. S. and British planes helped Israel win its amazing victory. The Arab people still believe the Nasser broadcasts. But what the diplomats and the public don't know is that while Nasser was making his charge a tremendous number of Arab pilots were being trained in the United States, presumably to fight against Israel. The total number of Arab pilots trained in this country between 1964 and 1967 was 812. In the same period only 39 Israeli pilots trained at U. S. Air Force bases. Morocco, for instance, sent 363 pilots to learn to fly at U. S. bases. And after Nasser put across the Big Lie regard- ing U. S. planes, Moroccans stormed and burned the American Library and other U. S. buildings. Meanwhile, only one Israeli was training in the United States during the Near East crisis, and he was graduated on June 1, four days before war started. Note: Despite the break in diplomatic relations, Arab pilots have continued to study here undisturbed by any demonstrations or resentment by the American people. Flooding Sets Up Diversion Acres Change Farmers who are participating in the 19G7 Feed Grain Program may substitute other eligible land for the area they intended to use as diverted acreage at sign-up time last spring, according to R. I. Anderson, chairman of the Kossuth ASC county committee. Severe lowland flooding Uiis month has resulted in some of the most productive land on many farms being taken out of production. By requesting permission from the ASC committee and following necessary weed control and con- servation practices, farmers may substitute these areas for fields which they had originally intended to divert from production. The areas must be at least one acre and must be in an area that is practical for township committeemen to measure. Although this privilege does not compensate for crops lost by flooding, it is one way the inherent flexibility in farm programs helps participating farmers realize some gain from an otherwise total loss. Interested farmers should contact the ASCS county office for information.
