Noyt», Editor and Publish*. 1927-1964. Mrs. Linwood I. Noyes, President Edwin J. Johnson, Editor and Publisher Helping Hand-Unsung Hero A great but unsung force for progress and swicess is the helping hand. Almost without exception, it has been a little-recognized but key factor in the lives of those who have achieved outstanding fume or fortune. Charles Lindbergh, Henry Ford. Helen Keller. George Washington Carver. Abraham Lincoln, Mine. Curie, Christopher Columbus, Hans Christian Anderson, Thomas Edison- the list is endless of men and women who might never Iwe made their contribution to society had it not been for help which came when it was desperately needed. Often the helping hand was extended bv a comparative stranger. Rarely if ever was it offered with any certainty of the dividends it would make possible to humanity. Certain facts stand out in almost even' instance of such help. One is that the recipient was doing his part -putting forth every effort he possibly could to achieve his goal. Another is that the benefactor was rewarded by as much pride and satisfaction as the recipient of the help who achieved the fame or Fortune. And the helping hand is not limited to aiding the brilliant. It is extended millions of times • day to people of every walk of life. Almost everyone has been lifted by it in moments of despair. Fingertip Information More and more, people all over the world ire literally living a phony life. You can get almost any kind of information >r service you want these days by simply step- sing to the phone and dialing a number. And unless your home is, heaven forbid, under- ahoned, you don't even have to 'step. You mere- y reach. The time. The weather. Wake-up service for the sleppyhead. Dial-A-Prayer for those in need of spiritual comfort. Recorded newscasts. Traffic and road information. (This can even include intelligence on where the traffic police are manning the radar traps.) Ski reports, stock market quotations, election results, waiting time at municipal golf courses. In Boston, even improper Bostonians can dial the "Voice of Audubon" and learn what birds can be seen where. And we Americans aren't the only phone- advantaged ones. In England little tykes or their parents can go to beddy-bye dialing a fairy tale. In West Germany hausfraus can dial the "recipe of the i » day. In Switzerland there is dial help on crossword puzzles and train schedules. Parisians can dial for advice on romantic problems, if a Parisian ever needs such help. These remarkable aids to better living encourage hope for the ultimate break-through in telephnoic miracles—the dream day when the subscriber picks up the phone the operator answers, and SHE does all the dialing! Quiet, old-times. Your memory is playing trick on you. Nonsensical Taboo In their attempt to will the nation of Israel and the Jewish people out of existence, the Arab nations have come up with some weird stratagems. One trade regulation provides that any ship that has even been owned by Israelis is blacklisted permanently. It may not dock at any Arab port or earn' any Arab crew or cargo. This applies even after it has been sold and sails under a new flag. This is a rather mystical taboo, remarks one observer. "It presupposes that all formerly Israeli ships yearn for Zion, that although the captain now speaks French or Serbo-Crqat. the engine, room still has a Hebrew heart. Strange." Current controversy over insect sprays gives kids another excuse not to eat their vegetables. Peking boasts of record egg production. May be true-or another variation of the Red shell game. Keep your ear to the ground, your feet on the right path and your shoulder to the wheel and you'll end up at the chiropractor's. Steel helmets are high style for CariMjcan cruises this summer. U.S. firms are exploring Ireland for oil. Have they looked around Blarney Castle? Washington Notebook WAASHINGTON-(NEA)-To observers in Saigon, the recently attempted coup against the Suuth Vietnamese government — quashed by Premier Phan Huy Quat before it even got started—was old hat stuff. Elsewhere, the reaction was pretty much the same. Asked for his unofficial opinion, Adlai Stevenson, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, remarked: Let Saigons be Saigons." » * * RETURNING to the Senate after a ten-week convalescence from a lung operation. Sen. Richard Russell, D-Ga., was given a standing ovation by his colleagues. Minority leader Everett Dirksen, R-HL, recalled that the last time he saw Russell was when the pair had adjoining rooms at Washington's Walter Reed Hospital. "While we were there," said Dirksen, "we solved all the problems of the world. We not only discussed Medicare—we lived it." • * * GEN. CURTIS LEMAY, who recently retired as Air Force chief of staff, was respected by everyone at the Pentagon as a tough, dedicated soldier. Few people dared to question him. On an overseas trip, LeMay once touched down at a western Air Force base for refueling. Several officers gathered to give him a brief welcome. LeMay was the first person out of the plane, a freshly lit cigar clenched in his teeth. One of the waiting officers, horrified, whispered to a friend: "My God! That cigar! The plane could blow up!" His companion quickly reassured him: "It wouldn't dare. • • • THINGS GOT rather badly entangled recently when White House press secretary George Reedy was laying down rules for reporters attending an important background briefing. "You can only quote an 'administration iource,' " said Reedy. "This means you can't •ay that Mr. Blank (the real source) believes thus and so or regards the situation this way or that." A reported interjected: "Can we write that an administration source lays Mr. Blank feels thus and so?" Replied Reedy: "No, you can only say that an administration iource feels thus arid so." • • • THE OFFICES where the war on poverty Is being fought are situated in a brand new building in downtown Washington. The incongruity of new stone, glass and metal as a setting' for efforts to help the poor must have struck someone hard. Three'of the building's four elevators are now lined with shabby, scarred plywood and v/allboard and look like nothing so much as traveling shanties. * * * ONE OF PRESIDENT JOHNSON'S good friends wonders whether LBJ might not have been better advised to have called the Organization of American States (OAS) into the Dominican crisis earlier than he did. But, that too, might have posed problems. Says this friend: "If we had done that, gotten an emphatic OAS 'no' vote on going into the island, and then gone ahead and landed the Marines anyway, out position might be worse than it is. "Remember your college days. If you asked a girl whether you could kiss her, she might say 'no' even though she really wanted you to. Usually you found that the best thing was not to ask, but just go ahead with it." * * * OVER THE YEARS it has become axiomatic for administration critics to rap the State Department for not making accurate assessments of what is happening in a foreign country during a critical period. The Dominican crisis has been no exception. One State Department official who spent some time in Santo Domingo recently—mindful of this criticism—claims with tongue in cheek that he's discovered a surefire method of gathering intelligence. "First," he says, "you go to the Israeli ambassador. Then you talk to the Peace Corps toys. And finally you spend three or four hours in the public market." • * * CHARLES PERCY of Illinois, who lost a governorship bid last fall, was briefing the press on the work of a Republican tack force he heads on the subject of job opportunities. First question from a newsman was this: "Are you going to run for the Senate next year against Paul Douglas?" Percy laughed and threw out his own question: "Is this related to a job opportunity?" ANOTHER QUERY for Percy: "Sir, what is the difference between the Democrats' was on poverty and the Republicans' war on poverty?" Before Percy had a chance to respond, a newsman stage-whispered an answer: "One has money and the other doesn't." • ' * * • • • Rep. Henry B. Gonzalez, D-Tex., recalls that one of his most embarrassing moments occurred while he was being introduced by one of the town's leading ladies for a campaign speech. After a glowing tribute, the lady ushered him to the microphone with this line: "And now, it is my great pleasure to-present a distinguished-American and my very close ' personal friend—Henry B. Rodriguezl" "Business Boomed Today, One Student, Four FBI Agents" COIECTEP WORM OF UKBHW ROSS LEWIS, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL Today in National Affairs By DAVID LAWRENCE WASHINGTON —It seems incredible that erroneous impressions should have been spread about what the United States did or failed to do before land- ng marines in the Dominican Republic. It seems strange, too, that the United States has been charged with taking an impulsive action without consulting the Latin-American countries, when it now turns out that the Government here did consult at least 14 of the Latin-American :ountries and even the Peace Committee of the organization of American states before the landing of any military units. But the idea widely conveyed was that the administration acted impetuously and did not take the trouble to consult beforehand with any of the Latin- American countries. President Johnson told the whole story of the Dominican Republic episode in great detail to his news conference on Tuesday. What he said in an impromptu answer to a question from a reporter at the press conference is particularly significant. It reads as follows: it ft ft Many months ago we became aware of the increasing tensions there, and the difficulties that would likely confront us. On the Sunday before we went in there on Wednesday, we asked the ambassador, who had already come to Washington at our calling, to leave his family home and come here to meet with us. Ambassador Bennett met with us on Monday. We rushed him back to the Dominican Republic and set in motion certain steps. 'First was to attempt to obtain a cease-fire. Second was to the precautionary steps necessary to protect approximately 5,000 Americans, as well as thousands of other nationals if ihat should be required. We moved our ships up there on Sunday. "T h e Ambassador arrived there on Monday. He talked to various leaders. We did all we could to bring about a cease fire in cooperation with the pap> al nuncio and others who were active on the scene. On Wednesday at noon, it became appar ent that danger was lurking around the corner, and the Am bassador gave us a warning in a cable about one o'clock. We had met on Monday and we had met on Tuesday. We met on Wednesday, and we had had many conversations on Sunday on which we did not issue any handouts. During that period— I think from the time we were notified on Saturday until we intervened on Wednesday—w e spent a good part of both day and night giving our attention to this matter, from moving the ships up to making the final de cision. ft ft ft "I had 237 individual conversations during that period and about 35 meetings with various people Finally, on Wednesday afternoon at four something, we got another warning that we should have a contingent plan ready immediately, and a little before six o'clock we got a plea, a unanimous plea—from the entire country team made up of the ambassador, CIA director USIA, Army, Naavy and A i r Force—to land troops immediately to save American lives. "Of course, we knew of the forces at work in the Dominican Republic. We were not un aware that there are Commun Jsts that were active in this effort, but 99 per cent of our rea- son for going in there was to ry to provide protection for these American lives and the ives of other nationals. We asked our ambassador to summon all our people , immediately to the hotel—to put them in one central group. . . . "Men were running up and down the corridors of the Ambassador hotel (Santo Domingo) with tommy guns shooting out windows, through the roof, and through the closets. Our citizens were under the beds and in the closets trying to dodge this gunfire. Our ambassador, as he was talking to us, was under his desk. We didn't think we had much time to consult in any great detail more than we had talked about up to that time, but we did make the announcement about eight o'clock and immediately asked the OAS for an urgent meeting the next morning." a a A The President, in answering another question at his news conference took occasion to de- molish the misconception that has arisen concerning the so callfd "Johnson doctrine"—as if something new had been devised. Actually, the United States was merely following its traditional position. He said: "I am afraid that the people that have branded the Johnson doctrine were unfamiliar with the fact that the nations of this hemisphere have repeatedly made it clear that the principles of Communism are incom patiblp with the principles of the inter-American system. . . President Kennedy enunciated that on several occasions. The OAS Itself has enunciated that. I merely repeated it." Mr. Johnson also discusser the nature of the Communisl activity in the Dominican Republic as follows: "Their presence (in Santo Do mingo) is still noted hour by hour. Their effectiveness is stil observed. From day to day, we see their handiwork in the Dom inican Republic and elsewhere throughout the world, particularly in the propaganda field." But will the explanation by the president of United States policy in the Dominican Republic overtake the misinterpretations that have been so widely circulated in recent days? The International Whirligig By ANDREW TULLT WASHINGTON — Happily for the long future, the more thoughtful types at the State Department are not dismissing anti-American feeling in the Philippines as merely the fruits of Communist subversion. Red influence is present, of course, as it is in every new country trying to shake off the past and find a better future. But largely the Filipino's unrest is based on his longing to reestablish his Asian identity, blurred by four centuries of Spanish rule and 50 years of American Big Brotherism. Although he speaks both Spanish and English, the Filipino remains an Asian, a blending of Chinese and Malay. Since the U.S. granted the Philippines independence after World War II, the nation has been stirred by what might be called "Asian nationalism." It still retains and wants to retain its ties with the West, if only for economic reason, but the average Filipino finds himself drawn to his Asian brothers. * a •& As one Filipino diplomat here put it, "You Americans have blood ties with the English. So do we with the rest of Asia. We have never been either Spaniards or Americans. We have always thought like Asians." Moreover, the Filipino feels it is proper for him to resent the U.S. assumption that its military bases in the Philippines are the result of some kind of divine right. The more responsible Filipinos do not seek abrogation of the treaties providing for these bases, but only their revision to give their country more of a say in the matter. They don't see why American busi- nessmen should have equal st» tus with Filipino businessmen. It Is true that the more violent instances of anti-Americanism are staged by the Communist! through infiltration of small but loud student groups. But tht movement for "separation" from America has won the support of the nation's more respectable leaders. For example, Gen. Carlos Romulo, formei aide to General . MacArthur, former Ambassador to Washington and a longtime friend of the U.S., has come out in support of a policy of strengthening ties with Asia. * «r * Romulo does not quite suggest that Red China is the wave of the future, but he points out that the Asian no longer regards the white man with awe and/or fear. "Japanese victories in World War II exploded that myth," he says. Meanwhile, there is an Ironic significance in the emergence of former President Jose Laurel as a hero among the Asian bloc. Laurel was denounced as a collaborator when he operated an "independent" government during the Japanese occupation, but today the more vociferous nationalists see him as a man of vision who sought the security of accommodation with the East. Overlaying all this nationalistic stirring is fear. There are 100 million Indonesians at the Philippines' back door and 700 million Chinese at its front door. Even while continuing to seek American military protection, the Filipino can't help wandering whether he should lay the groundwork for doing business with the Asian mass—just in case.

The hottest aircraft used in Viet Nam were designed for carrying nuclear weapons. They can't carry the large-sized conventional iron bombs needed for a fistful of the tasks they're being assigned. Conventional bombs on the sizes carried have been bouncing off one of the bridges in North Viet Nam and exploding harmlessly in the water. They're not doing the damage necessary when dropped on Viet Cong headquarters hidden in heavily wooded areas. What's needed are experiments to develop conventional bombs that carry more bang for their size and weight. A great deal of work has been done to cut the size of nuclear weapons. Research with the conventional has lagged. jAs of'now, 48 or so bombers and ;a large escort of fighters are'senV to take out a 'bridge meant to be handled with four to five bombers and a handful of escorts). U.S. aircraft are overly vulnerable to ground fire in the low-level attacks that are vitally important in guerrilla fighting.

The bombing systems used in these U.S. planes were designed for laying- the bombs within 60 feet of target on low-level runs. That's excellent for nuclear weapons. It's not good enough when using conventional iron bombs. Military men say it's essential to get a bombing system for U.S. fighter-bombers that will lay the iron bombs within 15 or 20 feet of what they aim at. What's needed is some sort of heat-seeking or pilot-guided missile. The planes need automatic pilots for their runs and highly efficient radar. In fast-moving guerrilla battles, mobile ground units find they can't determine where they are quickly with very small errors. This frequently makes rapid effective air support impossible. Supply is slowed in critical battles. Fighter-bombers run into fire ground forces could otherwise warn against. Pilots must be given much better ways to locate Viet Cong guerrilla troops and supplies hidden under trees, in caves or camouflaged boats. The problem is especially critical in bad weather and at night. ft a 4 Solution: Better-co-ordinated ground-air operations in which the man on the ground sneaks in and pinpoints hidden guerrilla targets then, while on the spot, guides the planes in. This again requires infantryman and pilot to kow precisely where the other is. (Ground-air television may be part of the answer.) Tanks, armored personnel carriers and artillery are largely roadbound in guerilla base areas. If the United States is de- temined to use this type of weapon in this kind of war, a new breed of equipment will have to be developed able to better perform tank-armored personnel carrier-artillery functions through swamps, jungles and rivers.
