FROM RANDOM HOUSE - !From Random House we received a booklet titled "My Hope .for America". This sounds like an ordinary title . . . and could have been written by any American . . . looking at the future . . . and hoping to share in some of its promise. However— the author of this hook is the President of the United States, The Lighter Side By DICK WEST WASHINGTON (UPI)—Within few hours from the time this is being written, a valiant team of American climbers will make a new attempt to reach the summit o£ Old Rag Mountain. The expedition is again under the direction of Myron Glaser, a travel writer for the Washington Daily News. Your intrepid correspondent is again serving as senior pathfinder. Old Rag is a sentinel peak standing in majestic splendor in the northwest corner of Virginia. It is a part of either the Shenandoah, Blue Ridge or Appalachian range. (Geography was never my best subject.) Its challenging footpaths, some of which incline at an angle of nearly 3 degrees, have been scaled only by more than 90,000 birdwatchers, U.S. senators, Brownie Scouts and little old ladies in tennis shoes. It may be recalled that group leader Glaser and I were part of a team that assaulted the forbidding south slope of' Old Rag in the spring of 19G3. At the time, the expedition was hailed as a success. Subsequently we learned, however, that we had missed the summit by three-quarters of an inch. In order to reach the true summit of Old Rag, you have to climb to the top and then stand on a pebble. Tippy-toe. Undaunted by the hardships of that expedition, and determined to erase our shame, we have spared ourselves nothing in mounting the new . expedition. Behind it lies 20 minutes of careful planning. At our base camp, which happens to be in my front yard, we have assembled the highly specialized equipment I needed to support such a ven- i ture—lollypops, bowling shoes, ocarinas, etc. The quantity and variety of paraphernalia required by the modern mountain climber is positively staggering, particularly on an empty stomach. As extra insurance, the group leader and I solicited the support of the National Geographic Society, which was a sponsor of the American expedition that conquered Mt. Everest. We invited the society to underwrite part of the cost of the Old Rag expedition (an estimated $1.17) and to lend us the services of Barry Bishop, one of the heroes of the Mt. Everest climb. Both proposals were declined, but the society did agree to let one of its news bureau members accompany us— on his own time. Although lacking in expedience, the newcomer, Sabin Robbins, has been assigned one of the most vital'roles in mountain climbing. His job is to compose immortal phrases for us to utter when we reach the summit. Additionally, several women —wives, daughters, camp followers, etc.—have joined the support party. As we begin the ascent we are confident that this time nothing can prevent our success, except failure.

Rhodes jeweler By MERRIMAN SMITH United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — The Warren Commission, in its exhaustive examination of the assassination of (President Kennedy, had to sift through thousands of unsubstantiated reports and rumors. One of the more persistent items of speculation was that since the assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald,- spent more than two and a half years in the Soviet Union he . must have been a Russian spy and-or Communist agent assigned to murder the Chief Executive. The killer was widely reported to have a mysterious source of funds; that he brought $5,000 into this country from Mexico a little more than a month before he cut down Kennedy with rifle fire. There were theories—which grew into "inside" gossip— that the weak-chinned, 24-year- old ex-Marine was in some way connected with either the FBI or the CIA. Forlorn, Wretched Man According to the commission, the unrom antic truth was that Oswald, a forlorn, wretched man with a tortured mind, was none of these things. True, he was in the Soviet Union from Oct. 16, 1959, until June 2, 1962. He married a Russian girl, Marina. He tried to renounce his U.S. citizenship, but he never really went through with it. True, he applied for visas to take his family back to the United States in 1963. And it was true that he did go to Mexico some seven weeks before he shot» Kennedy and tried to arrange Russian and Cuban visas for a flight to Havana. But he wanted to go right away. Despite his defection to the Soviet Union and his later entreaties, the overriding fact was that nobody wanted Oswald — the Russians, the Cubans, the Mexicans, the Communists, the Socialists or for that matter, his Russian wife whose beautifully sad eyes he blackened with his fists when Warren Commission Silted Many Rumors EDITOR'S NOTE: Following is the first in a series of five special articles dealing with rumors about 'President John F. Kennedy's assassination and how the Warren Commission report dealt with them. the mood moved him. Reds Coddled Turncoats The Russians naturally encouraged the defection of anyone from the West and coddled such turncoats until they could determine whether a defector could be useful from the standpoint of propaganda or what information he might have. Oswald turned out to be virtually worthless to the Russians on both counts. They gave him a job in a Minsk factory but his work was shoddy. When Oswald applied for exit visas for himself, his Russian wife and their first baby, permission was granted in five and a half months — fast, but not unprecedented. In fact, the Oswalds could have left Russia much sooner than they did, but they were held up until Oswald received State Department permission to reenter his native country. The commission said, "there is no evidence that Oswald had any working relationship with the Soviet government or Soviet intelligence." Intelligence Work Impossible Also, the Russians never would have permitted Oswald to marry a Soviet girl and take her to the United States if they had planned to use him as an agent. Marina's lack of English and her husband's known status as a defector would have made both of them imlossbly spotlighted to undertake secret intelligence work. As for Oswald having assassinated Kennedy on Soviet assignment, Secretary of State Dean Rusk said this was so much "madness." "I have not seen or heard of any scrap of evidence indicating that the Soviet Union had any desire to eliminate President Kennedy nor in any way participated in any such events," the secretary testified. ".. .It would be an act of rashness and madness for Soviet leaders to undertake such an action as an active policy." The commission noted "assertions" that Oswald made "a clandestine flight from Mexico to Cuba and back and that he received a large sum of money —usually estimated, at $5,000 which he brought back to Dallas with him." "The commission," the report added, "has no credible evidence that Oswald went to Mexico pursuant to a plan to assassinate President Kennedy, that he received any instrue ti'ons related to such an actions Traceable while there, or that he-, received large sums of money from any -source in Mexico!" ; Planned Cuban Trip g There was a time, according to evidence, when Oswald who found it almost impossible to distinguish reality from unreality spoke to Marina of hijacking a plane and going to Cuba, but she talked him out of it. On' Sept. 26, 1963, he took Trailways bus No. 5133 from Houston to Mexico City, registered at the Hotel del Comercio where his room cost $1.28 a day and then proceeded to harass the Cuban and Soviet embassies, plus the Mexican Foreign Office. He wanted a visa to Havana. He was turned down by all three countries. In fact, the Cuban consul told Oswald that people like him actually were harming Castro's revolution. In other words, get lost. Oswald was sore about his rejection and fired off a complaining letter to the Soviet Embassy in Washington. He returned to the United States at Laredo, Tex., at 3 a.m. Oct. 2, and reached Dallas at 2:20 p.m. the same day. Total cost of the trip: $84.45. If at any time in his miserably unhappy squalid life Oswald had his hands on anything more than a Marine Corps private's pay or an unemployment compensation check, he must have buried or destroyed it. Single, Frugal Life Evidence showed he saved $1,600 during, his hitch in the Marines. Tkere was nothing remarkable about this since he was single, frugal, spent virtually nothing on himself and almost never went out with the boys. This is the money he used to get to Russia. He had to borrow from the U. S. Embassy in Moscow to get home. As near as the best investigators of the U.S. government can determine, his total cash assets at the time of the assassination consisted of $170 in a wallet he left with his wife and $13.87 in his pockets. The commission presented a detailed table of all funds Oswald and his wife received from various jobs, unemployment compensation checks and small loans from his mother and brother from June 13, 1962, until Nov. 22, 1963, the day Kennedy was killed. Lee and Marina had a total of $63 between them when they arrived in New York from Russia in June. They borrowed $200 from his brother, $10 from his mother. In about a year and a half, Oswald's total income from all sources was only $3,665.89 »ble expendjtures.ior th same peridcf* came to -$&%501.79, leaving a balance of .$164.10. Wife Received Little 'How,could, they live -so long on so-little?.Oswald $aid only small amounts for the support of Marina and their children.' The wife and, by now, two ba-. bies lived most of that time with friends she made through the Russian-speaking communi-. ty of Dallas, and for very brief periods with Oswald's mother* or brother. Marina constantly was in dire need and she refused to share Lee's rooming house squalor in Dallas, remaining with a friend in Irving,' Tex., where she and the babies could eat. • As for Oswald being an agent for either the FBI or the CIA as his mother, Marguerite, has. claimed, the commission found- this to be entirely untrue. The FBI did keep Oswald under frequent check and occa-( sional interrogation after he re-; turned from Russia. This is> routine in the case of any returned defector. But the bureau, knew him to be an unreliable- know-nothing and thought he, was harmless as far as vio-^ lence was concerned. ; They were right about every-!! thing but the violence. .,' Advertise In The Tribune Make Septic Tanks Work Like New ASK YOUR DEALER POR TIPTON COUNTY : FARM BUREAU : CO-OP THIMBLE THEATRE bv ALEX RAYMOND THERE'S MO USETRyiN &N TO MOOCH A MEAL AT POPEYES HOUSE ..SMASH EATS ALL THE FOOD.'
