WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round WASHINGTON- The main reason President Johnson called Ambassador Ellsworth Bunker and Gen. William Westmoreland home from Vietnam was to discuss the feasibility of a bombing pause. The President acted after a series of private discussions with his most trusted advisers, including Secretary of State Rusk, Secretary of Defense McNamara, Supreme Court Justice Abe Fortas, and two friends outside the government, Dean Acheson and Clark Clifford. They agreed that every diplomatic string had been pulled and every approach had been tried to bring the North Vietnamese to the truce table, except for the one condition the communists have been clamoring for — an unconditional bombing halt. The President consulted the bomb-damage reports which show that North Vietnam's principal targets have been destroyed beyond immediate repair. This means he could afford to stop the bombing for a few weeks before the industrial and power plants could get back into production. Even Acheson, shrillest hawk of the group, wasn't opposed to a bombing pause. It would at least demonstrate to the world, he acknowledged, that the United States was willing to make the largest concession for peace. • If the North Vietnamese then still refused to negotiate, Acheson reasoned, the world couldn't blame the United States for resuming the war full blast. As a result, it is almost certain that the President will offer to extend the traditional Christmas truce beyond the new year. He will halt the bombing even though he doubts the communists will make any reciprocal gesture. If they fail to do so, the President feels the communists again will have demonstrated they do not want peace - and there will be no alternative to resuming the bombing. - o- - NEW TRICK IN CONGRESS - Rep. Edward Gurney, R-Fla., hopes to show his colleagues a new trick in wielding influence in Washington. Gurney plans to run for the Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Smathers, Democrat. He is quietly grooming his law partner, Louis Frey, to replace him in the House. If they both win, they will have one law partner in the Senate, the other in the House. That would be a combination that should produce a highly lucrative law practice. - o- - RUSSIAN TAKEOVER - Ambassador Arthur Goldberg has reported to President John. son that the Russians at the United Nations no longer show any interest in negotiating a Middle East settlement. A possible explanation comes from U. S. intelligence reports that the Russians are quietly taking over the Egyptian Army. More than 1,000 Soviet officers and technicians, working under the command of four Russian DREW PEARSON generals, are retraining and reorganizing the army along Soviet lines. This is the price the Egyptians have been compelled to pay for a restoration of the weapons they lost to Israel. An estimated 75 per cent of these weapons have now been replaced by Russia, which rushed 150 aircraft and 250 tanks to Egypt by air during the first few weeks after the disastrous Arab- Israeli War. Soviet ships are still bringing in tanks, planes, artillery and ammunition, though at a slower pace. Some intelligence experts are convinced that the Russians deliberately goaded Egypt into the war, fully expecting Israel to win. The Russians, according to this reasoning, wanted to increase their domination of Egypt and correctly calculated that a military defeat would force Nasser into their arms. - o- - WORD TO THE WISE- President Johnson has taken pains not to invite Sen.TomDodd to the White House since the Senator got into trouble. But last week, the President invited Dodd's chief backer and benefactor, Lewis Rosenstiel of Schenley Liquors, to a state dinner for Japanese Prime Minister Sato, even though Rosenstiel's activities are under active investigation by the Justice Department. The President's hospitality could be interpreted by U. S. Attorney Robert Morgenthau, who is directing the Rosenstiel investigation in New York City, as a hint to lay off. - o- - ELUSIVE GREEK - Stavros Niarchos, the elusive Greek shipping tycoon who ran a $20,000 investment into a multimillion-dollar fortune largely by shortchanging Uncle Sam, slipped into New York City recently to see his estranged wife, Charlotte, and their baby. Charlotte is the daughter of Henry Ford and a close friend of Lynda Bird Johnson. The President's daughter, on her visits to New York City, used to stay with Charlotte. It was during one of these visits that Charlotte introduced Lynda to a young movie actor named George Hamilton. Charlotte's marriage to Niar- chos was supposed to be on the rocks. However, Niarchos stayed in Charlotte's apartment during his brief visit. Friends claim he came here mostly to see his baby. Reason for the secrecy of his visit was that Niarchos has left Uncle Sam holding the -bag largely empty except for $1,500,000 that Internal Revenue has managed to squeeze out of him on a $25 million tax judgment. Niarchos' ships visit American ports regularly; his corporations own valuable property in this country; and Grumman Aircraft is building a $3 million airplane for him on Long Island. If Internal Revenue can't catch up with the elusive Mr. Niarchos, it might consider attaching some of this property in order to collect the rest of his unpaid taxes. m Q m - HUMPHREY COUP- Recent victories for Democrats and moderates in the nation's bigger cities can be chalked up as a personal victory for Vice President Humphrey. Two year sago, when Humphrey appeared at political gatherings with Abraham Beame, Democratic candidate against Rep. John Lindsay for mayor of New York, the Vice President was razzed for supporting the wrong man at the w.rong time and losing. This fall, however, he stuck his neck out even more — and won. He trudged the slums of Philadelphia with Mayor James Tate, urging racial tolerance. Last week Mayor Tate surprised all the pollsters by defeating a hard- hitting young Republican (once a Democrat), Arlen Specter. In Gary, Ind., Humphrey stuck his neck out even further by holding a fund-raising drive for Negro Democrat Gordon Hatcher, bitterly opposed by John Krupa, chairman of the Democratic local committee. Hatcher won. In Cleveland, Humphrey campaigned for Carl Stokes, the Negro Democrat opposed by Seth Tuesday, Nov. 28, 1967 Algena (!a.) Upper De* MoinM-7 Taft, Republican. Stokes won. Humphrey also went all the way out to San Francisco to throw his support behind Joseph Alioto, the Democratic candidate for mayor, even though one of Humphrey's friends in the House of Representatives, Phillip Burton, had put a third candidate in the race to split the Democratic vote. Alioto won. In making these campaigns, Humphrey obviously acted with the approval of his chief in the White House. Johnson also went on record in support of Negro and moderate candidates. It will probably cost him votes from the middle class white backlash next year, but he plans to continue his policy of battling for equality of economic and political Negro opportunity. Night Classes For Officials Slated Here A course of instruction in officiating high school athletics is set to begin Nov. 27 at 7:30 p.m. The first class session will be held in room 145 at Algona High School. The instruction will consist of ten classes, tentatively scheduled Monday evenings. Plaiuied dates for the classes are Nov. 27; Dec. 4, 11, & 18; Jan. 8, 15, 22, & 29; Feb. 5 & 12. It appears at this time that there is sufficient interest to conduct the class, but more participatns are desired. The instruction will cover the many aspects of officiating procedures and techniques. It is expected to cover both boys and girls high school sports. Demonstrations and films of games and meets will be used to illustrate the principles and techniques. The instruction will be under the direction of Everett Barr, local athletic official. An enrollment fee of $5 will be the charge; payable at the first class session. Prospective and current officials as well as interested spectators are invited to participate. The class is open to both men and women.
