WASHINGTON CXJPI) —When someone told me the other day that Rudy Vallee had started telling risque stories in his old age, I found it hard to believe. Man and boy, I had always thought of Vallee as the clean- cut college type to whom four- letter words were just words with four letters. To hear that he had turned into a bawdy comic was a bit like hearing that Whistler's mother pushed narcotics. But it's true. That is, it's true about Vallee.' I can't speak for Mrs. Whistler. Vallee has put together a new night club act that one critic described as "a college of jokes, spoonerisms and limericks, most of them off-color." He is currently turning the air blue at a local supper club called the Blue Room. As a historical footnote,, it might be noted that this cabaret had its formal opening almost 34 years ago. The star attraction then was the self same Rudy Vallee. Rudy. Has Changed Back in those days, "The Vagabond Lover" charmed the girls by crooning "My Time is Your Time" through a megaphone. If some of those girls heard him now, they probably would wash his mouth out with soap. Times also have changed in other ways. I asked my 14- year-old daughter if she knew what a megaphone was. "Sure," she said. "Like when you drop a hydrogen bomb the blast is 20 megaphones." John Stuart Mill, an English philosopher and economist, once propounded the theory that getting shocked was good for people. Made 'em raise their eys- brows, thus giving their brains a little exercise, he said. I don't know whether that is a valid thesis, but I can report that shocking people has apparently been good for Vallee. At 60-plus, he is amazingly well preserved. I suspect that old Rudy owns the franchise for goat gland extract, or some such restorative. Enjoys Profanity At a press lunch the other day, Vallee was asked why he uses so much profanity. "I enjoy it," he said simply. His speech is well laced with Elizabethian expletives both on and off the stage. Vallea said he regards such terms as both colorful and- expressive, and doesn't see why anyone should be offended by them. "Coming from me, it doesn't sound bad at all," he said. "Convince me that you're hurt by it and I'll drop it. It may shock you but it does' you no harm." Vallee also has another theory' that intrigued me. He claims that only three persons have ever been born in Vermont — himself, Orson Bean and Calvin Coolidge. I can't imagine what John Stuart Mill would have made of that.

By PHIL NEWSOM UPI Foreign News Analyst To say that the South Vietnamese are being given one last chance to save themselves is perhaps putting it too strongly. But it is perilously close to that. Almost exactly a year after the fall of the Ngo Dinh Diem government in Saigon, U.S. Ambassador Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor plainly was irked when he said repeated government crises had led to "deterioration and a loss of momentum" in the war effort. But, in what has become standard U.S. policy in South Viet Nam, Taylor also remained determinedly optimistic. For the new civilian government, he said, he had "great hope." Hope, indeed, was about the only ingredient left. Under the autocratic Diem government and its politically- appointed generals there had been the "clear and hold" operations which neither cleared nor held. And there were the fortified strategic hamlets which fell to the Communist Viet Cong with distressing regularity once the troops departed and defenses were left to a local home guard. No Improvement' Nor had the situation improved any under two strongman generals. Gen. Duong Van (Big) Minn who took over after Diem's fall, himself fell victim to a coup led by Gen. Nguyen Khanh.

CHRISS United Press International ATLANTA (UPI) — Southerners always have taken their politics seriously along with the Bible, segregation and their sipping liquor, military and civilian coup last September. Among all groups it was all too obvious that special interests were taking precedent over what should have been the main interest—the war against the Viet Cong.

Johnson has his troubles too: —A Catering start by the D.emociats Jto organize ; CHICAGO (UPI) — Almost everybody's running scared down the election home stretch in the Middle West. That includes President Johnson, who hurried to the midlands for his only day of campaigning during the week. At a street rally in St. Louis, he took note of a new factor that could hurt him in the farm belt—the Waler W. Jenkins case. Sen. Barry M.. Goldwater was no exception. He crisscrossed the Middle West twice in a week this month, running so vigorously he once bumped into another running - scared campaigner, Hubert H. Humphrey. All of a sudden, Michigan's George M. Romney appeared to be turning on' the steam, too. The Republican governor, who has refrained from endorsing the Goldwater ticket, had appeared-, to be running easily ahead of Democratic congress man-at-large Neil Staebler. But now, Staeblcr's camp claims the Detroit bookmaker odds have fallen from 8-to-5 for Romney to even money. Romney, by - coincidence or not, began to answer some Staebler charges which he had ignored earlier in the campaign. Many Others Included The "running scared" contingent also included: —Democrat Otto Kerner and Republican Charles H. Percy, both of whom want to be governor of Illinois. Kerner has the job now, but could be hurt by a grand jury investigation of charges that his former campaign manager once got money from both the state and firms doing business with the state. Still, .preliminary returns from a newspaper straw poll (the Chicago Sun-Times) had both Johnson' and Kerner leading in Illinois. —Kentucky political pros on both sides. There are no hot state races in the Bluegrass State, and the politicians are afraid that too many voters don't particularly care who wins nationally. Johnson had appeared 1 ahead' in Kentucky, but Democrats were worried about the effect of the Jenkins case. - ' 1 —The warring camps in Wisconsin, where there was a wealth of stirring state battles and the "Johnson-Goldwater bat- le was still rated as a tossup. Here, too, the Jenkins case was an imponderable. So was backlash," credited with giving Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace a heavy presidential primary vote, on the south side of Milwaukee last spring. The south side vote could swing Wisconsin and Republicans were putting on the pressure there. In Indiana, a state which Goldwater had figured to carry, some polls showed Johnson with an edge. The Johnson ticket and Democratic Sen. Stuart Symington appeared to be; pulling ahead" in Missouri. Jenkins Not Mentioned In his brief stint of Midwest campaigning, Johnson made no direct reference to the case of Jenkins, his longtime aide who resigned following an arrest on a morals charge. But he couldn't help seeing the signs which popped up as a motorcade took him from East St. Louis, 111., a Democratic fiefdom, to his St. Louis rally Wednesday. Some samples: "Lyndon, Baker, Jenkins... Jenkins, Johnson's Profumo... great society — LBJ, Bobby Baker, Billy Sol Estes and..." The St. Louis crowd jeered at the last one, but Johnson calmed it down. "Now you folks come on and be happy," he said. "You'll find a few like that in every big crowd—but they're getting fewer and fewer and the days wear on. It's not backlash. It's smcarlash." Johnson had wanted to get up to Wisconsin, too, to court the south side Milwaukee Polish. The death of ex-President Herbert C. Hoover forced him to cancel out, which gave Goldwater a plus. He'd been hard at work wowing the Milwaukee vote the week before. Switched To Tape The Republican presidential nominee might have done a more effective job of warming up Wisconsin Republicans i£ he'd let them stay on nationwide television. His Oct. 13 Milwaukee rally was billed as a coast-to-coast telecast. As it turned out, the Goldwater tra- tegists let the Milwaukee crowd cheer "live" for only a few moments before they switched to a four-day-old tape of another Goldwater appearance. It was a few days later that Goldwater ran into Humphre}' at Sioux Falls, S.D. Goldwater had just finished talking to the national corn picking contest and Humphrey was just about to. The two Senate colleagues shook hands and chatted about their families. As Goldwater got ready to leave, he said: "I'd say keep punching, but..." "Keep working, huh?" Humphrey said. Palo Alto County, Iowa Palo Alto County is a predominantly agricultural section in which feed grains are im- porant. About 80 per cent of the farmers are participating in the federal government's price support program for feed grains. Democratic campaigners have' not let them forget that this is a Democratic program — and that Sen. Goldwater voted against it. The county scat newspaper recently, published the results of a poll among its readers. Johnson had 71 per cent of the votes. County GOP Chairman Joseph Hanson scoffs at this figure, and says the "present trend" is toward a Goldwater victory. Democratic Chairman John Kibbie figures Johnson will carry the county by a 2-to-l majority, but admits that the Republicans are working hard to change the picture. Soundings by a reporter tended to bear out Kibbie's forecast of a substantial Johnson majority. But many voters indicated they would vote democratic not so much out of enthusiasm for Johnson as out of fear of what Goldwater might do to government farm programs and in foreign policy. Bruce B'akke Laramie County, Wyomin Laramie County has one important city—the state capital of Cheyenne — surrounded by ranching country. It has a population of about 60,000.
