PAGE 8 THE TIPTOE STRICTLY BUSINESS by McFoaHen .WO Kf SUGGESTION AWARDS' ''I don't care if it, is your lunch hour — cut it out! NATIONAL WINDOW (Opinion) By LYLE WILSON United Press .International The great challenge of his life time comes now to Lyndon Baines Johnson. It is the test of his ability to survive in the rarefied atmosphere of the giddy political heights to which the Nov. 3 election raised him. Franklin D. Roosevelt was so challenged nearly 30 years- ago after the landslide 1936 election. He flunked. Three months after he all but skunked .Republican Alf M. Landon in 1936, FDR proposed to Congress a plan to pack the Supreme Court with New Deal sympathizers. The court packing project was defeated and not by a Republican congressional uprising. The' project was licked by rebellious congressional, Democrats. The Republicans had the wit mostly to sit back while the Democrats ripped their own party to shreds. ' A great war engulfed. Europe in 1939 to enable FDR to obtain a third term in 1940, despite the shattering court battle, a good example of the luck •of the Roosevelts. But for that war and the problems it created FDR probably - would have been defeated in 1940. He would have been ; the candidate of a party too weakened by internal strife to mount a winning campaign. " FDR Handed Mandate FDR was judged in 1936 to - have been given a mandate by the voters. A mandate is defined by Webster as an authoritative command, a formal order from a .superior court or official to an inferior one. When a president or governor believes the voters have given him a mandate, it is time for the beaten opposition party to take to its holes. A president with a mandate in his pocket is most likely to look upon it as a license to do as he pleases and to claim solemnly that he was commanded to the action by the voters. That is how FDR got into the business of trying to.pack the U.S. Supreme Court in revenge for its consistent opinions declaring basic New Deal legislation both unwise and unconstitutional. FDR called it a horse- and-buggy court'and persuaded himself that the people had commanded him to motorize the vehicle. Some such temptation surely will seek out Johnson although not in the area of the Supreme Court. The justices long since unhitched their old horse to parade in style as high powered and fully mechanized performers in the democratic circuses presided over by a succession of ringmasters, FDR to LBJ, inclusive. Great Political The explosive nature of great political power in one man's hands as now it reposes in the hands of Lyndon. Johnson can be of nuclear proportions unless the hands belong to the most long headed kind of politician. It is the good fortune of Lyn,don Johnson that he is .a politician of enchanting capacity, capable not merely of seeing around corners but of simultaneously putting both ears to the ground. The White House may never have seen Johnson's like before. There is a possibility, therefore, that LBJ will survive the master test that now confronts him, the test being in his ability to possess enormous power without becoming trapped in the incautious "use of it It is a possibility and no more. The probability is that LBJ will be one way •or another to put his great political power to a test to which it is not equal. It was such a trap as that in which FDR was caught nearly 30 years ago. Foreign iVews Commentary By PHIL NEWSOM UPI Foreign News Analyst When the United Nations General Assembly opens its delayed session on Dec. 1, it will be faced almost at once with two important issues. One will deal with the question of the admission of Red China, which the United States always has opposed adamantly. The other is of more pressing immediate importance and deals with the Soviet Union's continuing insistence that it will pay "not one kopek" of its assessed share of the costs of the United Nations peace-keeping operations in the Congo and the Middle East. That share . amounts to §52.6 million and the United States is insisting that since the Mebt now is more than two years old the Soviet Union should lose its vote in the General Assembly under Article 19 of the U.N. charter. I France Also Tardy | France also has refused to pay its Congo assessment and becomes liable to Article 19's two-year limit on Jan.-1. For their part, the Russians jhave said they will quit the United Nations if they lose their vote, and; there the matter rests in stalemate. It is rated the most serious crisis to face the United Nations since the death of former U.N. Secretary General .Dag Hammarskjold when only direct negotiations between the U.S. and the Soviet Union were able i to break a deadlock on selection of his successor. That" compromise resulted in the appointment of U Thant, the' Burmese diplomat who con- tines to hold the job. Withdrawal of either the United States or the Soviet Union would end hope for the continued effectiveness of the world body. ' ~ One Hopeful Sign The most hopeful signs are that both the U.S. and Soviets reportedly have given assurances that they seek a solution, and that talks between the two may already have started. The talks are necessary if a crisis is to be averted. On the question of Red China, the prospects seem to be that for this year the United States once more will be successful in barring Red Chinese membership, but for this year only. France and Britain's new Labor government both are expected to vote for admission. Any new agreement reached by the Chinese and the Soviets also could result in heavier Soviet pressure to admit the Mao Tse- tung regime at the expense of the nationalists of Chiang Kai- shek. By next year it is expected that enough of the. under-developed nations also will swing to the - Red Chinese - side to change the balance. The -two issues face the United States and the Russians with major decisions. Each will have to decide on its won the continuing value of the world body.
