Presidential Countdown checked its Washington sources, and back came the reaction: White House plans still say spring of '72. Nevertheless, we all know Mr. Nixon loves to pull dramatic surprises. Witness presidential aide Henry Kissinger's secret hop to Peking from Pakistan in first arranging the Peking trip. And we know Mr. Nixon admired the neat, efficient and very secret way that his mentor, President Eisenhower, carried out the campaign promise to visit Korea in 1952. Nobody knew he'd gone until there. One more thing: In this day of nervous security, wouldn't it be a good idea to talk about one timetable and actually follow another, earlier one? That would certainly throw any would-be troublemakers off balance. Countdown is watching and checking. VILE. FILES - Nobody seeking the presidency can match the woes of Washington's Sen. Henry (Scoop) Jackson. Since May, workmen have been pounding away with jack-hammers in remodeling rooms around, under and over his Capitol Hill office. He finally got the drills to stop part of the day so he could hear himself politicking on the phone. But he still has an unsolved refugee problem: Cockroaches in his filing cabinets, driven there by the reconstruction clatter in a cafeteria kitchen downstairs. GAME PLAN President Nixon must figure that what worked in 1968 ought to work in 1972. In getting elected, he banked heavily on television for direct communication with voters and kept away from the scores of newsmen following him on the campaign trail. The other day, he jetted 2,500 miles to New York and Chicago, to raise $5 million for to neip out in local elections, uugni to be good for laughs, they figured ' after all, Indiana's safe for favorite-son Birch Bayh, right?

The Secret Service takes a ho-hum attitude toward that $840,000 damage suit in Charlotte, N.C. charging citizens were roughhoused when President Nixon visited for Billy Graham Day the 1972 campaign, and never once came face-to-face with White House correspondents who tagged along. White House aides let the newsmen watch a video monitor as he spoke to New York's $500-a-plate dinner but barred them from the hall itself. Ditto Chicago. They asked each other afterward: "Anyone see the President:" No takers. ECONOMY PACKAGE Ever give a party and almost nobody showed up? House Ways and Means Chairman Wilbur Mills (D-Ark.) threw one the other day for 400 and 800 came, including 80 members of Congress. They sipped coffee and soda pop but unheard-of on the Washington cocktail circuit nothing alcoholic. It cost $200, or two-bits a guest. It was the opening of the Draft Mills for President headquarters. Mills already has campaigned in 32 states (no fee for his speeches) and vows he will visit at least 40 by year's end. A 1970 Arkansas law allows him to run for both the House and the presidential nomination. Even though the economy will be the big campaign issue and Mills is an acknowledged expert (two-bits a guest?), party pros don't give him a chance for the nomination.

Catholics Live With Red China ROME (Reuter) The Roman Catholic Church in China doesn't recognize the supremacy of the Pope and chooses its bis hops autonomously, according to a report carried by the Italian news agency ANSA Sunday. An Italian government official recently had private talks with the deputy leader of the Chinese Roman Catholic community in Peking with the permission of Chinese authorities, ANSA said. The report, by ANSA'S Peking correspondent, Miss Ada Princigalli, provides a rare insight into aspects of Roman Catholic life in China. IT REVEALS that the Chinese Catholic Church, known since 1951 as the "Cat holic Patriotic Association," claims two million members, has a bishop in each region of the country appointed without consulting the V a t i c a n , does not recognize papal supremacy, and has freedom of worship.

Carpenter) Ware rode horse to church in keeping U.S. Bishops Urge End To Asia War Bishop Borders The Most Rev. William Borders, bishop of the Orlando Roman Catholic Diocese, went on record in Washington this week calling for a "speedy end to the war in Southeast Asia." Bishop Borders and bishops from other Catholic d i o c e ses throughout the United States gathered in Washington last week for a s e m i - a n n ual conclave instituted in 196G. THE CLOSED sessions, conference, Bishop Borders said, included an appeal for federal aid to parochial following closely on the Mao-style tunics with cleri- hee,s of the papa', Synod in Ctti vuiittia, uuu nunc uao rnryta Hrnl,aUf hiah rank. ing clerics together for the pwary leading American wMslkey is distilled much die same way0 been ordained since 1963. Relations with the Communist Party are good, convents and seminaries continue to function but there is no Catholic press, the report said. MISS Princigalli gave a detailed description of a mass in Peking's Roman Catholic Cathedral, a big Spanish-style church in the lEscept one. education, a pledge for continued church aid to c o m m unity poverty programs, and a resolution opening future sessions to the press. TO THE average Catholic, according to one church spokesman, the resolutions adopted by the bishops have merely an advisory effect. Unlike decisions relating to the religion itself, he said, the resolutions are meant only to "crystallize" the church's position and urge the support of all church members. The three-page war resolution said, in part: "At this point in history it seems clear to us that whatever good we hope to achieve through continued involvement in this war is now outweighed by the destruction of human life and moral values which it inflicts. "IT IS our firm conviction, therefore, that the speedy ending of this war is a moral imperative of the highest priority." The bishops also expressed "a profound concern for prisoners of war and their families and promise our prayers for their welfare and release." SENTINEL goes to CHURCH purpose of achieving a Catholic consensus on national issues of morality. The antiwar resolution, one of several position papers issued during the conference, appealed "to leaders of all nations involved in this tragic conflict t bring the war to an end with no further delay." "There was a very spirited discussion of the proposal," said Bishop Borders. "This always happens when you apply moral principles to an issue of this sort." "THEN, OF course there's the problem of different orientation," Bishop Borders added. "We are convinced there is no normal justification for this war," he said. A date for U.S. withdrawal was not mentioned in the resolution. Some of the other issues discussed during the 1 H " fT . city center named the Church of the Immaculate Virgin. The mass was attended by Vittorino Colombo, p r e s i d e n t of the Italo-C h in e s e institute for economic and cultural exchange and a Christian democrat member of the Italian parliament, who asked the authorities for permission to attend a Catholic service in Peking. He was accompanied by Antonino Restivo, the Italian charge d'affaires in Peking, a Chinese priest, age about 40, and the president of the Catholic Patriotic Association. THE MASS was celebrated by Father Wang Ki-ting, "vicar-general," or assistant, to the Bishop of Peking. "There were about a dozen people praying in the church women in the pews on the right, including a nun saying the rosary and men on the left," Miss Princigalli reported. The nun told Colombo that she came from a nearby convent with 30 sisters. After the mass, celebrated in Latin, Colombo had a long talk with Father Wang, who told him that since 1951 "we have been removed from Vatican domination. We c o n d u c t religious affairs autonomously." ASKED ABOUT relations m THE TIME, TEFMM1E, & UEATB TELEPHONE Barton's QT is lighterand milderthan any whiskey you've ever tasted. Because it's distilled at a higher proof than most traditional whiskey. And it's stored in selected, seasoned barrels. (Traditionally, most whiskey has been stored in new barrels.) And Barton's QT is filtered in a special way-to make it lighter and smoother. Next year, we expect that many other distillers will also be selling whiskey distilled at a higher proof than traditional American whiskey and stored in seasoned barrels.
