It's good Christmas for LBJ By JAMES MAR LOW Associated Press News Arulyst WASHINGTON (AP) — President Johnson couldn't have a much better Christmas. He has everything going for him. There's no crisis in sight. He has four years as President ahead. The country is prosperous. His own Democrats, in control of Congress, outnumber the Republicans tremendously. ; Worse than that for his opposition, the decimated Republicans are even divided on where they go from here. The Russians, having scuttled Nikita Khrushchev, are trying to get accustomed to being with- out him, but the Red Chinese are just as mad at them as they were at Khrushchev. Johnson made so few prom ises in the election campaign he is free to go in almost any direction now and by soft-ped- alling what he has in mind he has saved himself from criticism before he gets started. Although the United States is the strongest military power on earth, the NATO Allies arc Disagreeing among themselves but they have been doing that quite a while and Johnson can not be blamed for it. In fact, If they start getting alonfi soon, ho will probably get much of the credit since, in- stead of barging into the differences, he presents himself as the spreader of oil on troubled waters. Even the civil rights turmoil has subsided a bit. And, thanks to the Supreme Court's approval of the ban on discrimination in places like hotels and rcslau rants, one big cause of trouble has had much of the sting taken out. Johnson would like to keep the budget for next year below $100 billion, and he will be working at it on his Texas ranch this week, getting ready to present his figures to Congress in January. But even here if he cannot reach the desired figura, a storm is unlikely because he has already done such a good job of creating an image of himself as a penny-pincher. True, he does not seem to have figured out yet how to nan- die the press. He has been trying it every which way: In big news conferences announced ahead of time; in peripatetic conferences with a handful of reporters on the White House lawn; or in his office with small, selected groups of newsmen who can report what he says so long as they do not say lie said it. Nevertheless, h« has been netting along all right, even with such mixed up arrangements, and no wonder. As President, he will keep on making front pages when he says anything and when he doesn't. Fide! Castro is still a pain, but he was a pain to President John F. Kennedy, and there Is no immediate need for a solution. The Communists in Viet Nam are making a mess of any. John- sonian hopes for a quick or easv victory, but Kennedy had to sweat that one out too, and by playing pretty mum Johnson is keeping down the anxiety factor. There is no sound of fussing among the Cabinet members he inherited from Kennedy and as they depart one by one, as they probably will, it will all be done with a public exchange of sweet regrets, thus preserving a position of harmony. All this quietude, being a bit abnormal in the White House, may not last much beyond the first of the year. But, until then, Johnson can enjoy his Christmas tree, saying thanks to Santa Glaus for a happy holiday. COURTHOUSE TO CLOSE GARNER — Hancock County courthouse will close at noon Dec. 24 for the Christmas holiday, according to Arthur Ross, county auditor. 1« D*c. 22, |p 19*4 Gktbe-Gaiett*, Mafwn City, la.
