FOUR IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, 1RONWOOD, MICHIGAN SATURDAY, JULY 54.1WS. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE "Tht Daily Globe is an independent newspaper, supporting what it believes to be right and opposing what it believes to be wrong, regardless of party politics, and publishing the news fairly and impartially." —Linwood I. Noyes, Editor and Publisher, 1927-1964. Mrs. Linwood I. Noyes, President Edwin J. Johnson, Editor and Publisher "Encore at Geneva • The man in the United States government - *:most immediately concerned with disarmament believes that an agrement that would forestall the further spread of nuclear weapons *"seems so overhelmingly in the interest of both the Soviet Union and the United States that it -may seem surprisng that they have been un. able to reach agreement." The quotation is from an article by William C Foster, director of the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament -Agency, in the current Foreign Affairs. 'J The logical is in national capabilities. A .study published in 1960 stated that 12 countries would soon be capable of embarking on ; -successful nuclear weapons programs. ;v: The countries named were Belgium, Canada, "Communist China, Czechoslovakia, East Ger* many, France, India, Italy, japan, Sweden, Switzerland, and West Germain After the passage of five years France is well on the way to becoming a nuclear power. More than 6000 French technicians are speeding preparations (or France's first hydrogen bomb test—to take place southeast of preparations in July 1966. ,' ; Communist China is on the same path. A ••second Chinese nuclear device was detonated on May 14. Mao Tse-tung reportedly recently told an Indonesian official that preparations •.were already being made for third and fourth : nuclear tests. \ : Eight countries in addition to the dozen listed at the outset were adjudged in 1960 to he "economically capable, fairly competent technically, although perhaps somewhat more limited in scientific manpower." They were "Australia, Austria, Denmark, Finland, Hungary ..Netherlands, Poland, and Yugoslavia. The principal problem in negotiating a so- 5 called non - proliferation agreement, Foster writes, is the Russian refusal to accept a NATO " Multilateral Nuclear Force or an Atlantic Nuclear Force and the Western refusal to re, riounce these projects. Foster does not advo- T-cate dropping "the MLF/ANF idea." But he points out that the spreading of nuclear weapons itself—as in the case of France—is likely . (o "weaken alliances." -. France is officially a member of the 18-nation : United Nations Disarmament Committee re: convening in the Palais des Nations in Geneva late this month. However, France has taken no part in. the deliberations there. Moreover, -neither France nor Red China is party to the existing test ban agreement. • The U.N. Disarmament Commission, a body .established in 1959 in which all members of the U.N. are members, was most recently in session from April 21 to June 16. The discussions centered on the spreading problem and on an extension of the test ban treaty to cover • underground explosions. On June 15 the Commission voted, 83 to 1, to reconvene the Geneva ^committee. France and members of the Soviet bloc were among the 18 states abstaining. Russia, of course, subsequently reversed its .position. The single negative vote was cast by :. Albania, Communist China's closest ally in the •U.N. If an agreement is ever to be worked out against the spreading of the Bomb, the London - Fiiumcial Times suggests, the present non-members of the nuclear club "will equire some kind of guarantee against nuclear blackmail by the existing nuclear powers." The news• paper cites as the two countries most immedi- ', ately affected, India and West Germany. West ; Germany is bound by treaty not to manufacture nuclear weapons but is extremely dependent on their protection. Can Everybody Else Be Out of Step? History often tags famous men thus: William was known as "the Conqueror," Ivan as "the Terrible," Richard as "the Lionhearted.'' Although the 74-year-old Charles Andre Joseph Marie de Gaulle has not yet run the full course of his career, historians may well duh him Charles the Dissident. Charles the Dissident has a nice ring. De Ganlle might even like it. He has worked hard against popular tides. De Gaulle was a thorn in the side of the Nazis—and of his own allies. He emerged from World War II a national hero. After a short political stint, De Gaulle went into semirerirement, from which he emerged in the nation's 1958 crisis bordering on civil war. He gave the French people, on a take-it- and-me-or-else basis, a De Ganlle constitution giving the chief executive greater powers and a basis for establishing the Fifth Republic. He has kept Franco-West German relations in ferment. In 1963 De Gaulle slapped down the late President Kennedy's offer of Polaris missiles and set out to develop his own nuclear weapons. Earlier that year he turned thumbs down on Britain's entry into the European Economic Community, opposing its other five member nations. The pockmarks etched by DeGaulle's acidity on Franco-American relations were deepened when he challenged the authority and purposes of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, pulling out of it all his armed forces except token units and officers who could mouth his sentiments in NATO's high councils. In granting diplomatic recognition to Red China, De Gaulle brusquely "brushed aside Western policy, protests and interests. With America deeply invlved in South Viet Nam, De Gaulle derided the Southeast- Asia Treaty Organization and trotted out < his own formula for peace in the area France was thrown out of in 1954. He walked out of Euromart when other nations challenged his 'demand that they accept his views on a common farm policy. What next, Charles the Dissident? Dropouts, Attention! "Long Lines," an employe publication of the American Telephone and Telegraph Co., reports an engineering newsletter containing the following help wanted ad came to its attention recently': "Wanted: Man to work on nuclear fissionable isotope molecular reactive counters and three-phase cyclotomic uranium photo- synthesizers.

Things to get out of your garden are. fluw- ers, vegetables and your neighbor's dog. The Democrats Scramble ; Democrats in New York City reflect an .uncertainty that plagues the party throughout 'New York state. The political abdication of ' Mayor Robert F. Wagner, Jr. has left a political i vacuum which guarantees at least a two-way ..and possibly a four-way Democratic primary -for the mayoralty on Sept. 17 Meantime, the state organization lacks decisive leadership. State Chairman William H. McKeon on July 15 announced that he would ofier his resigna- ion at the July 27 meeting of the state committee. Mayor Wagner in January had attacked McKeon personally. McKeon now has left the door open to refusal of the resignation by the committee, but the edge appears to be with Mayor John J. Burns of Binghamton. The N.Y. Times on July 16 stated with great positive- ness that the two most powerful figures in state party affairs. Mayor Wagner and Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, had "agreed at a meeting two months ago that he (Burns) wase acceptable to them as the man best suited to healing wounds in a. badly split party." Burns' chief rival is Francis Kelly, an aide of Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman. Kelly is clo$e to Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey and is on good terms with Sen. Kennedy. When Bobby Kennedy sought and got the Democratic nomination for senator from New York last autumn, he had die solid support of old-time Democratic bosses like Charles A. Buckley of the Bronx and Assemblyman Stanley Steingut of Brooklyn, both Wagner foes of recent years. It was generally expected that Kennedy, if elected, would land in the stale ..with both feet and set about the job of party To a surprising degree, however, Kennedy has kept hands off. That means that while the Wagner-Kennedy Johnson elements hold aloof from battle at the state level, Democrats in New York City are scrambling madly for power. A further complication is the mayoralty candidacy of Rep. John V. Lindsay (R), whose fusion ticket threatens the Democrats seriously for the first time since 1950. Wagner's apparent heir is Paul R. Screvane. now City Council president. The chief opponent is Abraham D. Beame. now city controller. Both tickets are precisely balanced ethnically and geographically. The possibility of a four- way race depends on the persistence of the candidacies of Paul O'Dwyer, brother of the late former mayor, and of Rep. William F. Ryan. The Screvane ticket won the endorsement of the New York County Democratic Executive Committee on July 19. Screvane is, of course, favored. But the best prospect is for an internecine Democratic squabble so bitter as to give Lindsay a good chance to pull through despite a 3-to-l Democratic advantage in registration. This in the city which gave President Eisenhower only 48 per cent of its Vote nine years ago. The bigger stake lies ahead. Control of City Hall will count heavily in the jockeying foi the 1966 gubernatorial nimination. Persistent rumors have Wagner interested in that plum, rendering his tears upon resignation from the mayor's office suspect of being crocodilian. Obviously interested is Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr., who is sitting out the mayoralty race. The latest to be touted for the gubernatorial nomination in 1966 is Arthur J. Goldberg —and thus is opened still another can of eels.

But there seem j «£ ^ of the Washington Poto be few experts coming forth with ways and means of cutting down the rising crime rate in America. President Johnson is planning to appoint a national crime commission, the members of which will be announced shortly. Unfortunately, the statist i c s thus far gathered show that, even apart from the murders, which has not been paid for. So the reform was long overdue. The president In his spec c h touched on another phase which is equally Important — namely, the way offenders are handled by the courts. He said: "The treatment of often d e r s, particuarly first offenders, from time of arrest until the time of rehabilitation and return to the community, possible revision of the existing administrative and prosecution procedures, criminal laws, the rules of governing criminal procedure, possible alternative methods of dea ling with certain types of cond u c t that now process through criminal courts—all of this task is an enormous one." The whole subject of what causes crime and what can be done to prevent, it, or at least cut it down materially, is bound The International Whirligig By ANDREW TULLY WASHINGTON — That was an intriguing story told by a radio type named Dave Schoenbrun, who has put the late Adlai Stevenson on history's record as having described the Dominican Intervention as a "massive blunder." Stevenson is supposed to have let his hair down duri n g dinner with Schoenbrun and Roving Ambassador Averell Harriman tn Paris. If the story is true, it is not necessarily to Stevenson's discredit. Even a UN Ambassador has a right to his opinions. But it suggests that there still are too many members of Lyn don Johnson's Administration who learned no lesson from the abortive Bay of Pigs invasion. The Cuban adventure failed because the United States under President Kennedy refused to make an adequate commitment. The jury is still out on the Dominican mess, but the comforting fact is that when the time came for action President Johnson clld not repeat Kennedy's mistake. He used all the power necessary to stave off a possible Communist takeover, a <r * ROBERT KENNEDY'S VERSION — A good deal of reminiscent inside stuff is being written about the Bay of Pigs fiasco these days, but I am not yet prepared to accept any of it as gospel because it conflicts with the inside story told by Bobby Kennedy shortly after the event. And Bobby's story In effect confirmed the feeling that Unc 1 e Sam had gone into that one with one hand behind his back. Interviewed by the magazine, U. s. News and World Report, Bobby stated bluntly there had never been any plan to provide U. S air cover for the invasion, and that therefore Preside n t Kennedy had not been guilty, n suggested, of withdrawing thai cover. Bobby Kennedy acknowledged that there was to be air covei from Central America and saU "that was not disturbed. All o( the planes that were supposed tx be utilized were utilized. . . 1 might say they proved inad* quate. . ." * * * DOING THE JOB RIGHT But the facts were that the to vasion plan, as drawn up by th< Eisenhower Administration, dw call for U. S. air cover if necessary. Every effort was to have been made to avoid overt Amer- can intervention, but American planes were to intervene 11' necessary to maintain cont r o 1 over the beachhead and prevent the destruction of the Invading forces. President Kennedy did not like this Idea; it smacked too much of imperialism. Instead, he called for air strikes against the Castro air force by Cuban pilots flying from Guatemalan bases. Then Kennedy ruled that under no circumstances were American forces to become Involved. Although he has not said so, Bobby Kennedy obviously meant to convey the Intelligence that no U. S. air cover had been planned by the Kennedy Administration Lyndon Johnson, who can take a hint from the history books, clearly was influenced by the Bay of Pigs failure in his decision to dispatch U. 8. troops In large numbers to Santo Domingo. He took the logical position that Intervention would be criticized anyway, so he might is well send enough troops to get the Job done right. If he blundered. It. was on the side of safety, which history holds Is the very best kind of blunder. Dental Health By W. LAWRENCE, D. D. S. I cally introduced to spoon feeding.

His experience leads him to believe that severely cutting up several crack U.S. units will bring heavy stateside pressure to end the war. Some U.S. officers are also centage of the total population which the Negroes represent. Thus, out of a population in America or approximately 190 million people estimated by the of where the Viet Cong are or how many of them there are on his flanks or rear.

But the number of Negroes arrested for crimes of all kinds has been running close to 30 per cent of the total. This Is an astounding situation and has a direct bearing on the discussion in the last few years as to how to improve life in the Negro communities. The president's war on poverty Is designed, of course, to can unit. The V.C. aim will be to cut to pieces at one stroke an entire U.S. company or battalion. Their hope will be to let few Americans escape. The Viet Cong will then fade back and look patiently for a chance to carry out another mauling.
