Mansfield thus reflected in an Interview the generally pessimistic reaction among senators to U.N. Ambassador Arthur J. Goldberg's somber report on efforts to get U.N. action toward supervising elections scheduled for September in war-wracked South Viet Nam. Goldberg was reported to have told about 15 senators in a closed session Monday that there is little prospect of getting the U.N. poll watchers asked by the Saigon regime. Moreover, he was quoted as saying Poland had shown n interest in having the International Control Commission set up by the 1954 Geneva accords step in to provide observers. Poland is a member of the com- im'ssion, and unanimity is needed-for action. '"•". * * * Mansfield, who has advocated the, reconvening of the Geneva Conference if the United Nations balks at taking a hand, said he thinks the elections promised by Premier Nguyen Cao Ky's government must be held even if there is no international supervision. /.There have been suggestions and New Zealand are in and Mansfield said he is not giving up hope of U.N. action. But he said he believes elections can be conducted which will be fairly representative of South Vietnamese opinion, despite the fact that the Communis Viet Cong controls substantial areas of the like Pakistan and France have country. But the Democratic leader said he believes the Saigon gov eminent must permit all who turn up at the polls to vote. Sen. Jacob K. Javits, R-N.Y., told the Senate that he election commission set up in Saigon had advised the military junta (that all of those who "directly or indirectly work for Commu nists or neutralists" should be Deluded from voting. Describing this as a danger-! ous practice, Javits said that 1 universal suffrage by secret ballot should be the order of the day. fti MASSIVE MEMORIAL—Bolivian sculptor Mauro Nunez zuela, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia—is carved from a thousand-year-old algarrobo tree, is 10 feet high and weighs four tons.

The former secretary to Senale Democrats has pleaded innocent to a nine-count indictment charging him with conspiracy, tax evasion, theft, transportation of stolen money and fraud. U.S. Dist. Judge Oliver Casch announced the postponement Monday. Court sources said the judge would be tied up until early next year with the usual summer logjam of criminal cases and additional administrative duties this fall. Baker asked the court in April to dismiss the indictment because extensive publicity biased the grand jury and illegal procedures were used to gather evidence. WASHINGTON (AP) - Key House Republicans say they will oppose raising the national debt limit from $328 billion to 5330 billion for the year beginning July 1. The eight GOP members of the Ways and Means Committee said Monday in a minority re port on the debt ceiling bill that support of the bill would endorse what they called fiscal deception by President Johnson's administration. If nt legislation is approved, the limit automatically will drop to $285 billion. The administration had asked for a $332 billion ceiling.

Capitol Notebook By JOHN R. STARR Associated Press Writer LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Winston Chandler is missing a bet in his race for governor. His given name wouldreadily adapt to the nickname," "Win," and, if he used il, he would take advantage of what must be a super-duper wholesale rate on "Win With Win" buttons. Or, if he had exercised foresight, he could have collected enough of them during the 1964 to last through this thing could get campaign summer.

RS Will Battle Corn with Corn By HARRY KELLY WASHINGTON (AP) - The Internal Revenue Service, in a move to publicize its crackdown on moonshiners, has come up with a radio program which a IRS memo boasted would "brainwash the citizenry" and be "second only to Batman." With this disclosure today, it appeared Uncle Sam's tax collectors were trying to fight corn with what the memo admited might be considered corny. But Sen. Edward V. Long, D- Mo., isn't amused. 'As one reads the memo he feels he is reading from a script of the makebelieve television world of Batman," he said in a speech prepared for the Senate today. * * * Joseph S. Rosapepe, IRS information director, said in a May 27 letter to Long's Administrative Procedure subcommit- tee that the memo describing, pumped up each time they do a the radio program was with-1 job for an organization," it add- drawn, "is no longer an official Jed.

He said he is calling the IRS official before the subcommittee Wednesday for an explanation. * * * In his letter to the subcommittee, Rosapepe indicated the memo was for interdepartmen- al use only. He refused the subcommittee's request for the name of the memo's author, identifying him only as a young employe of the Atlanta regional office who "used bad judgment in his choice of words." The memo apparently was drafted in an attempt to help agents of the IRS' Alcohol and Tobacco Tax Division — known as "stillbusters" and "revenoo- ers" in moonshine country — improve their image. The publicity campaign was to go hand- in-hand with a crackdown known as "Operation Dry Up," it said. The memo gave hints on how usually 'hams' and delight in making a public appearance, receiving applause, and recognition." Thus, fiie memo urged its personnel back" to give to people "pat on the in the news the business who have helped alcohol tax agents. lessly to see what Johnson will come up with for them. He ignored them in the first speech. William J. Smith appears certain to be the "bogey man" of this campaign. Already Sulcer and Johnson have attacked him. Others may. * * * Smith, a veteran of many campaigns, is taking the tirades as philosophically as one can take that sort of thing. He remembers that the 1958 campaign was run against Rockefeller and Chandler face one another in the general election. Dale Alford's opponent in runoff or a general election would have a ready-made campaign slogan with a play on words: "You Can't Afford Alford." A political observer once said Jim Johnson "can think of more names to call an opponent than Rufus Rastus Johnson Brown's mother." Johnson was true to form in his opening television speech of the campaign. He called Brooks Hays "an old Quisling." He called Frank Holt "a pleasant vegetable." He called Dale Alford a 'specks peddler" and "a has- been." Earlier, he had called William J. Smith "the assistant governor in charge of influence." Kenneth Sulcer, Sam Boyce, Winston Chandler and Raymond Rebsamen are waiting breath- acles of tracing lost persons, escaped convicts, wandering mental patients and fugitives.

During the 1938 football season, Penn State permitted only 10 completed passes against it. In dealing with the press, the memo said, "a great number of the people engaged in the profession of news writing are of odd make-up." "The majority are individuals with egos that need to be other assorted non-candidates. Gov. Orval Faubus' 1962 op- pnents spent as much time assailing W. R. (Witt) Stephens and his influence on Faubus as a they did attacking Faubus. And Winthrop Rockefeller figured almost as prominently in the 1964 Democratic primary as he did in the runoff. Faubus charged during lha 1964 campaign that the Rockefeller campaign had created at many new jobs as a new industry would. The boom is still with us. A newsman visiting Rockefeller's national committeeman's office recently counted 29 intra-office mailboxes with 29 names. A spokesman said not all of those persons were on the payroll. How many were? He wasn't saying. Key additions to he Rockefeller staff since 1964 are Van Rush, a former newsman; Lefty Hawkins, a former public relations man, and Ray Cooper, former newsman, press association director and telephone company executive. j$v ~* '-iY*$v*-'J BUDDIES—The closest friend of a cat on an Oil Trough, Ark, farm also is a convenient one.
