P«9t A-I--INDSENDENT !·· luck. tHit, WtA, »«». M. »M --L.A.C. S A Y S:Who Should Do cottihg? PEOPLE IN THE NEWS Herbert Hoover Very 111 . Secretary of State Rusk was taping * program which was released around the world by the Voice of America. He was asked about boycotting those countries which insist on shipping goods to Castro. He said: "I think it is possible there may be some consumer reaction here in this country with respect to firms that specifically engage in that trade. But that is something that is in the hands of private citizens; we have no part in that ourselves." A later State Department statement said: "The U-S. does cot favor consumer boycotts.*' But the world was given the impression that our people might conduct the boycott * i Here we have the head of our State Department intimating to the world that private citizens might boycott the foreign firms that sell goods to Castro. One in particular would be the producers of the British-made Triumph automobile--which is made by the same firm that makes and is selling the busses to Cuba. There are many other firms and products from many countries involved in this trade--and defiance of U.S. policy. It would seem that our government should take action itself--if it is justified--rather than leaving it to the people. H a boycott of British Triumph cars is justified--then the government should invoke an embargo on these cars. The Voice of America statement is an example of weakness of our foreign policy. This win be further emphasized because few of the people who desire a foreign-made car will refrain from buying one. 4 4 * A more realistic approach to boycotting was shown the past week by Secretary of Commerce Hodges when he criticized the longshoremen union action in refusing to load wheat destined for Russia- He said the union was dose to making foreign policy for the government in its actioa Would it be any less so if the people as a whole boycotted foreign-made goods in this country because the maker of these goods did not comply with our foreign policy. It is a weakness of our foreign policy when the head of the State Department intimates that no official action will be taken--but encourages the people to take actioa If the issue is of great importance, the government should take the necessary action. In no other way can the people be expected to support and accept retaliation against those who disregard the programs we have set up to discourage the spread of communism. * ft * One program that will have the support of the great majority of our people is cutting off all foreign aid to Britain, France and other countries that continue trade with Cuba. It will have little effect in Britain and France because our present foreign aid is very small to these countries. We have given them around $20 billion over the last 15 years, which is largely responsible for their present prosperity, but their attitudes are largely: "What have you done for uslatelyr The cutting off of foreign aid to some of the other countries--such as Yugoslavia and Indonesia--will be more telling. They carry on large and continuous trad- Ing with Cuba. The whole foreign aid program needs to be discontinued to all countries--except those that do support our programs against aggressor nations. But any of these actions should be official rather than suggesting that the people take the action. They will not do so in convincing numbers. If their own government is not ready to take action, it is natural for them to ask: "Why should we?" Each day these vatilating policies make us look more ridiculous in the eyes of the worid.--LA.C. trum Tto Wlr« hnhcn Former President Herbert Hoover is seriously iU. The 89-year-old former chief executive has been bed-ridden in his Waldorf- Astoria hotel residence in New York for two days with fever, bleeding of the right kidney and a respiratory ailment, doctors said Tuesday. His doctors announced the kidney bleeding has been stopped Tuesday eight. but that Hoover had spent "a rather restless day due to respiratory difficulty." "Despite his age and illness, he still remains strong and alert." the doctors said. "His temperature is lower. His blood pressure remains normal. His heart beat is somewhat rapid, but the rhythm is normal and there is no evidence of heart failure." There were no immediate plans for him to go to a hospital He lives in the residential part of the hotel --Waldorf Towers. The illness was the latest in a series of health setbacks for the 31st President in the past year and a half. He underwent surgery for removal of a cancerous tumor of the intestinal tract in August 1962. Then, his family said last June that his strength had been ebbing because of anemia traced to intestinal bleed; ing. Hoover nonetheless had kept busy writing, but had not appeared in public ia recent months. One of the last occasions on which he left his apartment was last May when he went to the hotel ballroom for a reception honoring Maj. L Gordon Cooper, the astronaut who or- bitted the earth 22 times. Hoover, born in West Branch. Iowa, on Aug. 10, 1874, was the son of a blacksmith and was orphaned at the age of 9.

King Paul left his bed for the first time, since his stomach ulcer operation Friday. The worst of Queen Frederika'i bout with pneumonia appeared over. Palace doctors said her temperature and pulse were normal and caned her state of health "Very satisfactory." ROYAL NOD Add Prince Philip to those Britons who say the Beatles are good for the country. "Those blokes are helping people ' enjoy themselves." the husband of Queen Elizabeth said in London Tuesday. "It's entirely helpful I couldn't care less how much noise people make singing or dancing.
