Johnson talks in the following interview about her husband, her children and her own life as the nation's First Lady. By FRANCES LEWINE Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Lady Bird Johnson says the President < has a reasoned, searching reac-| tion to mounting criticism and "keeps his head high, his feet on the ground and goes on working the best he can." "He doesn't want to be rigidly bound into one set of (Slinking," the First Lady said. "He's always trying to learn and explore." Approaching the anniversary of four years in the White House, Mrs. Johnson said she has never lived so intensely. "Awareness of this house is like a shot of adrenalin intensifying the desire to do the best you can to live up to what this country wants its first family to be." The President's hair is whiter, he has more lines in his face: "It has taken a lot—it's been worth everything it takes," his wife said. The family has "drawn closer together than we ever have: been in our lives—there's just four of us in the same boat." Asked whether siie wants President Johnson to run again, Mrs. Johnson said: "I want him to do everything of useful work that he can for his country." * i * Mrs. Johnson is urging the President to relax at golf, and says she hopes someday he'll retire to Texas and teach young people about 'the years of government that he has lived." In the historic second-floor White House treaty room, Mrs. Johnson thoughtfully discussed the White House and her family. She recalled 'a lot of things I've loved," like dining by candlelight on the Truman balcony with the President and their oldest daughter Lynda; running the family's dogs and wheeling her grandson's carriage on the south lawn; 'spine-tingling moments" like seeing youngest daughter Luci's wedding gown stretched oue across President Abraham Lincoln's massive bed; and 'earnestly dramatic things" like the signing of the civil rights bill "with the lifetimes of hope and striving that went into it." Here are Mrs. Johnson's responses to other questions: Q. How do you feel about the forthcoming White House wedding'(of Lynda to Marine Capt. Charles S. Robb)? A. A heightened sense of excitement...and mostly a warm, happy expectancy that it will be just one of those great days to remember... Luci's was and it will always be one of the bench- marks, the great days in our life together...! hope this wedding will take its place as a dignified and well-loved occasion in this house. Q. How do you feel about your future son-in-law going to Vietnam? * * * A. Like any mother or mother-in-law, I feel concerned and I'll be praying. But I'll always be very proud. I like that young man and I'm glad there are folks like him fighting for us. Q. What did you think about the recent antiwar march on the Pentagon? A. (Mrs. Johnson revealed she and the President drove around Washington after church on the weekend of the Pentagon march.) I was thinking, by gosh, what a big cleanup bill this city was going to face. It must be ankle deep in the trash they some extent that demonstration was the fruits o! affluence and permissive- ness...It was about as unconstructive a work as I can remember seeing. » * * ...I feel boiling up'in me the feeling I think is shared by millions of Americans — that we've got to start having more respect for the law—that we must start more firmly enforcing the law. Q. The President frequently quotes from the troubles of bis predecessors in office. Does this give you solace? A. It helps to get it in perspective. You know it's not the first time it's happened and certainly not the last. Q. Do you worry about the President's health? A. Well, I'm always concerned. I don't think I actively worry...he has many pluses, safety valves, on his side. For instance, he can go to sleep whenever he sees a spare 30 minutes on his schedule...That is a gift from heaven. I envy him that. No Communism After 50 Years? By JAMES MABLOff %• AP News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) - A month before the Russian revolution of 1917 Lenin, who had dreamed of just that, was thinking he might never see happen in his lifetime. This wasn't the only contradiction in what followed. Lenin's Bolsheviks were only * small minority, numbering perhaps 25,000 and with no plans for a takeover, at that lime in March, 1917 when Czar Nicholas H was forced out and more moderate forces took over. In the months that followed Lenin built up support, particularly among factory workers in Moscow and St. Petersburg, while the opposition remained split, disorganized, confused, and in some ways stupid. The far better organized Bolsheviks, believing their chance was then or never, made Pope Recovering By DAVID MAZZARELLA Associated Press Writer VATICAN CITY (AP) - Pope Paul VI discussed church business today for the first time since his operation Saturday and was visited by his two brothers. The Pope conferred for 45 minutes with Amleto Cardinal Cicognani, the Vatican secretary of state. He also was visited by his brothers, Sen. Ludovico Montini and Dr. Francesco Montini, a heart specialist. The Pope's progress since his operation aroused belief that he may be able to resume some of his usual activities sooner than expected. There is talk in Vatican circles that the 70-year-old pontiff, whose prostate gland was removed Saturday, might be allowed to appear at his window briefly next Sunday or the one after to bless the noonday crowd in St. Peter's Square Immediately after the operation, 'Vatican sources said they did not expect the pontiff to give a Sunday blessing until Dec. 3, the first Sunday of Advent. The new prediction was an indication of the optimism and relief over the outcome of the Pope's operation. "Thank God," the Christian Democratic party newspaper El Popolo wrote after a medical bulletin Sunday said the Pope's condition was "truly satisfactory." The general tone of the com- munique as well as a television interview Saturday night by Dr. Pietrp Valdoni, who headed the surgical team, was considered an indication that laboratory analysis had shown the condition of the Pope's prostate gland was not cancerous. However, it was felt that the results of the laboratory tests may never he announced in line with Vatican custom since the death of Pope Pius XII. The pontiff resumed taking food by mouth Sunday morning and was expected to be able to leave his bed for a few steps soon. His temperature went down and the area operated on was said to be healing according to "the best expectations." It was reported that his doctors may soon stop issuing daily i communiques as a sign that everything was going well. The Pope wants to avoid excessive publicity of what he feels is a private mailer. their daring grab for power on Nov. 7, 1917, 50 years ago tomorrow. They have held that power since. The direct causes of the upheaval were Russian disaster in World War I, a nightmare of economic hardship, and Western influence which for more than 50 years had been penetrating Russian thought with democratic ideas. At that time Russians simply loved their homeland which had been harsh and brutal on all of them except the elite. Now they love it and are proud of it, with good reason in a limited sense. Russia was about 100 years behind the West industrially in 1917; now it is second only to the United States. From a nation almost medieval in many ways in 1917 it has become one of the world's two super-powers. From a nation whose czar was getting advice from a so- called mad monk, Rasputin, Russia has penetrated space. The reason for that is that the Soviets have striven for excellence in science and technology. But at the same time they save tried to wipe out illiteracy and educate the masses. Living conditions don't compare with Round-About Rescue CORPUS CHRISTI, Tex. (AP) Two Texas fishermen were safe at home today after their call for help took a round-about route. Navy Lt. Edward Storey and his brother-in-law, Nathan Abbott of Graham, Tex., were marooned by six-foot waves in Baffin Bay on the Texas coast. Storey sent out an S.OS on his small citizen's band radio. By a freak circumstance of the atmosphere he picked up a citizen's band operator in Toledo, Ohio. The Ohio operator called the Corpus Christ! Naval Air Station, which sent a helicopter to pick up the two fishermen Friday. IN THE PROBATE COURT FOR THE CHICKASAWBA DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, ARKANSAS. IN THE MATTER OF THE ESTATE OF B.

Nevertheless, politically the Soviet Union belongs back in another age. It is, despite all the things that may be said in its favor, a political despotism. The people have no sense of democracy or self-rule. But, for that matter, throughout their history they never did. And under Stalin, who executed almost all his old Bolshevik contemporaries, the Soviet Union had one of the worst terror reigns in history. By simply surviving it became a bulwark of world communism which grew elsewhere as the years passed. But while the Soviets preach Marxism they have never achieved communism. While encouraging communism elsewhere and even imposing it—as they did in Eastern Europe—they are now denounced by the Red Chinese as the betrayers of communism and Marxism. Sunday, two days before the revolution's anniversary, Red China's major newspapers called the Soviet leaders rene- les. The Chinese claimed they, and not the Soviet Union, are now the focal point of communism. Will the Soviet Union change and become a democratic society with no dictatorship? It will, if it follows the pattern of the great revolutions of modern limes. Those revolutions have been moving from West to East.
