Blythevllle (Ark.) Courier News — Thursday, April M, WW— Page Three President Johnson's Viet Policy Is Safe but Not Very Clear By JAMES MARLOW AP News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) - President Johnson could see what was coming in big doses when earlier (his year he ordered the bombing of North Viet Nam resumed and decided to step up the war. What was coming was criticism. In fact, it was already there and had been for months. But the critics of his Viet Nam policy, already plentiful 1 and vocal, seized upon his deci- jsions this year for fresh out- Pope To Poland Soon? bei, Nikita Khrushchev's son-in- law, coincided with an easing of Catholic- Communist tension in Poland and Hungary. Khrushchev's ouster and the death of Pope John XXIII ushered in a period of uncertainty in church- state relations in Eastern Europe. By EUGENE KRAMER WARSAW, Poland (AP) Some diplomats and churchmen in Warsaw think Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko's Vatican audience has orlghtened prospects for a visit by Pope Paul VI to Communist-ruled Poland later this year. After Gromyko's audience with the Pope Wednesday, the first ever given by a Roman Catholic pontiff to a minister of a Communist government, Vatican sources said they were certain the poor state of relations between the church and the Polish government was not dis- ^However observedn here feel Lisbon's°Diario Popular, ""they that an w era of good feeling acquired beautiful houses on the and he Kremlin, this almost ^a "iade the.r own clubs and c ,, i rviorfa thm,. rtiirn ^ir^loe noarh; certainly will ease the current high tension between the church and the Polish government, a situation which prevented Pope Paul from attending the celebration next Tuesday of the mil- lenium -of Christianity in Po- 'bursts. Johnson had been I around long enough to know they would. He also had been around long enough to know that unless he met this criticism headon himself it would get worse and that more than just answering the critics was involved. * * * In the first place, the more the criticism and tha longer it went unanswered, the more confused Americans would become about the war, which meant a division of opinion in this country. Second overseas people, particularly the Communist, would be aware of divided American thinking and, in the case of the Communists, there was the chance they might interpret the division as a weakening of the will to win. The divided opinion took many forms: U.S. forces should stay in Viet Nam, they should get out; the bombing should be stopped, it should be intensified; the Americans should retire to coastal bases, and they should do the opposite. If Johnson had gone on national television for one hour he could have explained his policy, why he thought it necessary to fight the war, what it meant to the United States, to Vie Nam, to Southeast Asia, to the Communists. Once he did this, of course, he rauld have been a rallying oint and a prime target —a allying point for all those who greed with him or thought he hould be supported; a target or those who disagreed. * * In the weeks that followed his words would have been flung jack at him by his critics and if events took a sour turn, as they did with the revolt of the Buddhists, some of his words might FOREIGNERS IN PORTUGAL LISBON (AP) - Portugal's neighbor Spain has more residents living here than any other nation. The British take second with 2,100 residents, and to; land. The Vatican last weekend made public a letter from the Pope to Stefan Cardinal Wyszynski, the Catholic primate of Poland, expressing regret he could not visit Poland. But the Pope retrained from criticizing the Warsaw government's ban on visits by foreign church dignitaries for the celebration. Some diplomats and churchmen think the pontiffs desire to ages to the Shrine of the Black visit a Communist-ruled country could still bring him here during Poland's 1,000th year of Christianity. There is growing speculation of a trip in August, during the traditional annual pilgrim ages to the Shrine of the Black Madonna in Czestochowa.

The reiulHi that the American people, and people- overseas, have to try to put the pieces together which is quite different from the kind of comprehensive picture they might have had if Johnson did the explaining.

Eleoance for Your Table...Magic for Your Kitchen! I have been turned against him. I In short, for Johnson to have laid it on the line himself on television in a detailed and lengthy explanation would have been to stick his neck out. He has let his lieutenants — like Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey, Secretary of State Dean Rusk, and ohters—do the explaining about American poll cy and intentions. The only trouble about such explanations is this: 1. They turn into a patch quilt, with Humphrey throwing in something now, Rusk adding something later, someone else contributing a bit some other time. j 2. The explanations, partial! larly Rusk's, with all their diplomatic phrasing — like saying this country could live wth a "nonaligned" South Viet Nam — are sometimes far from TOPPING TORONTO— Topping Toronto's skyline, the nearly completed 56- story Toronto Dominion.
