Buehwald Column By Art Buehwald World War I Deadbeats Art Buehwald WASHINGTON "The trouble with the United States," said Cruxman, "is that we never collect our war debts." "What exactly does that mean?" "Well, I just read in the newspaper that 17 countries still owe us money from World War I, something like $21 billion, if the story is correct. Now that s a lot of money to have outstanding and we could build a lot of an-tiballistic missile systems if any of those deadbeats would pay us back." "I can't understand why you are excited about countries not paying their war debts. After all, World War I was a long time ago, and we've had several wars since." "THAT'S THE POINT," Cruxman persisted. "The United States should announce it isn't going to get involved in any more world wars until it gets back its money for World War I. If the countries- don't want to repay the loans, then we should tell them that we'll sit the next war out." "But Cruxman, you can't have a world war without the United States. It just wouldn't make any sense. I agree that we should be paid back, but we shouldn't hold the debts over a country's head and say 'If you don't pay, we're not going to go to war.' " "Why not? How long are we going to stay on the sucker list? With each new world war the debt ceiling goes higher and higher. How many world wars do we have to have before we go broke loaning money to other countries?" "What countries still owe us money, Cruxman?" "There's Armenia; they're into us for $40 million; Belgium owes us $600 million; France owes us almost $7 billion; Great Britain is into us for $9.5 billion; the Soviet Union for $659 million and Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, $80 million. The only one who keeps paying its war debt is Finland. And do you know why?" "I really don't." "So Americans can say 'Finland always pays her war debts.' It doesn't cost the Finns that much and the public relations is fantastic." "Well, it appears to me, Cruxman, that the big debtors are France, England and the Soviet Union, and if we could collect from them the others would follow suit." "You got a fat chance collecting from France for World War I, particularly since De Gaulle has things so twisted around these days he thinks we started it." . . "But what about England?" "They don't have the money so we'd have to foreclose on them, and it's not easy to find a buyer for England these days." "I don't imagine the Soviet Union is too anxious to pay us back." "On their books, we still owe them for Alaska." "Well, what about Armenia?" "I think she's our only hope. The only trouble is Armenia is part of Turkey now, and when Turkey took over they ran an advertisement in the Istanbul Gazette, saying they were no longer responsible for Armenia's debts." "IT'S A SHAME that no country except Finland will pay for World War I," I said. "How do countries have the nerve to fight another war when they haven't paid for the previous war first?" "I guess it's a symptom of the times," Cruxman said. "They'd rather fight now and pay later." As Cromley Sees It By Ray Cromley Won't Ruffle Pentagon WASHINGTON There are some curious things about the highly advertised Oct. 21 "national"- march on the Pentagon to protest Vietnam. Though advertised as an anti demonstration, the leadership of composed of men primarily with grind. Jerry Rubin, a self-styled socialist who wants to close down the banks and the universities as "institutions that use and destroy human beings and values," is known primarily for his part in the University of California riots, for his 1964 trip to Castro's Cuba and for his support of "Black Power." Vietnam war the march is other axes to rteh Ray Cromley DAVID DELLINGER is known for his openly expressed support of Castro and his regime. James Bevel and Ralph Abernathy are from Martin Luther King's civil rights movement. Lincoln Lynch has been a high official in the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE). Arnold Johnson, active in getting the march idea started, is better known for his work as national public relations director of the Communist Party, USA. It is getting so that most large protest movements for whatever cause are controlled by interlocking "boards of directors." The leaders shift from one movement to another Vietnam one week, Cuba the next, then to Black Power, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic. These men and women are professional organizers. They're experts in publicity, whipping up crowds. Some have had special training in these fields. Frequently, these men and women organizers seem to be more interested in personal publicity than in achieving the ends of the causes they are professedly backing. Organizers of the Oct. 21 march have said they will "shut down the Pentagon." Says a spokesman: "We will fill the hallways and block the entrances and thousands of people will disrupt the American war machine." However, actual arrival at the Pentagon is scheduled for 4 p.m. on that Saturday afternoon. At 4 p.m. on a Saturday, a demonstration outside the Pentagon won't disrupt or even slow down any Defense Department operations. A cordon of police will prevent a massive invasion of the offices. Only skeleton crews work at the Pentagon on Saturday and Sunday. Most come in early and start leaving in the early afternoon. By 5 or 6 p.m. the only thing the demonstrators will disrupt will be Pentagon workers trying to get home to their wives and children. If the demonstrators repeat their performance on Sunday, Oct. 22, they'll meet up with even fewer people. BUT THE DEMONSTRATIONS will be at the right time for the big Sunday editions of the newspapers and the widely watched Saturday and Sunday television newscasts. In the past, the "leaders" have always made certain they're in the forefront when the reporters arrive and the television cameras are turned on. t On the Right By William F. Buckley Jr. Southern GOP's Dilemma William F. J Republicans in Texas, like Republicans elsewhere in the South, are hungry and conservative. Hungry because the election of a Republican is a rare event. Conservative because history slated the South to be conservative, for very many reasons including the long and oppressive experience of colonization by Washington. The dilemma posed by several experienced Republicans is: How to be, at once, both a winner, and a Republican? Should Republican Southerners join the clamor for a Rockefeller-Reagan ticket and "assure" a Republican victory? Or should they stand adamantly upon their preference for Nixon or Reagan, and risk defeat? And then the latest poll is released which underscores the dilemma. "What combination of candidates for president and vice president Buckley Jr. would offer the strongest ticket?" Answer (by state chairmen and members of the GOP National Committee): Rockefeller-Reagan (40 per cent), Nixon-Reagan (25 per cent). However, in answer to the question "Whom do you favor for the 1968 Republican presidential nomination:" the answer is: Nixon 46 per cent; Romney 26 per cent; Rockefeller 14 per cent; Reagan 7 per cent, others 7 per cent. THE POLL INDICATES the following: 1) that among Republican pros there is a general belief that Rockefeller would attract more independent voters to the Republican column than any other candidate; 2) that, however, if Rockefeller were nominated, it would be necessary to appease conservative Republican? by posting Reagan for vice president; 3) that the professionals tend to think that Nixon stands a chance to win; 4) that very few of them ( 14 per cent) believe that Rockefeller would stand unaided by strong conservative backing; 5) that although the sympathies of the professionals are clearly conservative, they are not now seriously considering Reagan for the No. 1 position; even though (6) they believe Reagan can most confidently be counted upon to deliver the conservative vote which is why he is almost everybody's choice for the No. 2 post. Too much attention is paid to the polls. The principal difficulty with them is that, the exposure of a candidate to the final rigors of a campaign, whether for the nomination or for the presidency, can prove totally unsettling, so much so that in the presidential process figures granitically rooted in the public esteem can suddenly dissolve into virtual stassenization. It was less than a year ago that the polls showed Romney miles and miles ahead of the closest competitor. His own exposure to national prominence has proved catastrophic. Less than a year ago it was fashionable to think of Ronald Reagan as merely the most recent idiosyncrasy from California. He has risen in the public esteem at about the same rate that Romney has receded. Concerning Nixon, he is dogged by the assumption mat "He cannot win." But it is impossible to filter through the pollster's question the extent that this assumption figured in the minds of those who expressed their preferences for other candidates. Supposing the impossible, that it could be demonstrated that either Nixon or Rockefeller could be elected is there any doubt whom the professionals in the party would prefer? And how can we know surely- even then, inasmuch as at state primaries many Republican voters express their choice not for the Republican they'd most like to see as president, but for the Republican they think would be the likeliest to beat Lyndon Johnson. IMPATIENT AS ONE IS entitled to be with a technique of democracy which is so manifestly defective, and on which so many people nevertheless construct their theologies, we can agree that it is a fascinating sport. I herewith request Dr. Gallup next time around to ascertain the response to a Reagan-Javits ticket with perhaps the explicit understanding that, if President Reagan were to die in office, Vice President Javits would promise to hurl himself upon the funeral pyre in grief.

The deputy will join the staff under special assignment to assist Oscar W. Rittenhouse and Thomas Beetel, Hunterdon lawyers sworn as deputies at torney general on Sept. 12 to take over the prosecutor's office from William R. Stem. Stem resigned to become Democratic candidate for the state senate from the 15th Dis trict. Rittenhouse was put in charge of the office. The identity of the new deputy was not known here. It is believed he will be assigned from the Trenton office of Attorney General Arthur Sills. Stem's resignation, which he was required to submit as a candidate, coincided with the opening of the September court term here. The court calender has been advanced more than a month to permit Rittenhouse and Beetel to become familiar with the pending criminal cases Girl Scouts Hike To Reservation Girl Scout Troop 53 of St. Mary's School hiked Thursday to the Watchung Reservation.

Activities were temporarily suspended from 1835 to 1853 when it was renumbered Jerusalem Lodge 26 with Ellis Rub-yon as master. The corner stone of the present Masonic Temple at Park Avenue and E. Seventh Street was laid Dec. 17, 1927, and the temple was ready for occupancy in February, 1929. There are 28 worshipful masters of the lodge still active. THE COURIER-NEWS Plainfield, N.
