Johnson is Trying to Be a New Man By JAMES MARLOW (AP News Analyst) WASHINGTON (AP) - President Johnson will have been in the White House four years as of Wednesday. If he had to leave right now he would probably feel terribly frustrated, disappointed and ineffectual. Much he could have done or tried to do about problems at home he couldn't do because of the Vietnamese war which has engulfed his time, thought and energy. If his problems had stayed home, he might now have one of the greatest records. But now suddenly, instead of succumbing to gloom or despair, he is trying to be a new Johnson by creating a fresh image of himself in the public eye. He has been on the defensive these past two years because of antiwar criticism. Yet, if any president ever yearned to be approved, it was Johnson. It showed repeatedly in his tone, words, face and gestures. Still, he will not bend to the critics. The result: He is a man in a straight jacket. He has refused to abandon or tone down the war; to make concessions without reciprocal concessions from North Vietnam; or to intensify it so much Red China might feel compelled to get in, which might mean World War III. Since he wants so much to be a successful president, and a popular one, why hasn't he yielded to his critics? He has given an answer which probably satisfies none of them: He will fulfill his obligations as he sees them. His first White House year, 1964, was taken mostly with trying to win election to the presidency on his own and preparing domestic programs for 1965 if elected. Vietnam was a growing major problem then, but not all-consuming. In 1965 Congress, under his leadership which meant political mastery, produced the most fruitful legislation in American history. But by the end of 1965 this country was up to its neck in the war. This showed vividly in 1966 wh«»n Johnson no longer could pay all his attention to domestic problems. That year Congress did a half-baked job. It's doing the same this year. Diverted by the war, Johnson has lost his political mastery. Now he is like a man alone. Members of his own party have turned against him. One is threatening to run against him for the nomination in 1968. And public confidence as measured by the Harris poll shows him at an all-time low of 23 per cent. It seems certain Johnson will try for re-election. It also seems certain he has realized his defensiveness is dumping him towards disaster. And it seems certain he has decided to change his ways and become aggressive. That's his natural condition anyway. He's out of place playing meek and mild. In the usual sense he is a poor speaker, especially when reading from prepared speeches or glued to the presidential rostrum at Times Herald, Carroll, la.

A hearty thank you to Mr. Parkinson for his very interesting informative demonstration from the student body of M.H.S. The pigskin season for MHS is now over. Sportsminded people are turning their eyes from the gridiron to the hardcourt. November 13 basketball practice began with 28 boys reporting. Among these are eight returning lettermen. This adds up to what everyone hopes is a successful season. Coach Pierson voiced his opinion, "Six of our eight lettermen were starters last year at one time or another.

If students do their very best the results can .prove' to be very valuable. The teachers can see where each individual is pro- grossing satisfactorily and where he is developing more slowly. The information can also help to make future educational plans. Too many times these tests aren't taken seriously. The students should realize that they are given for a reason. One reason is that the scores on the Iowa Tests can be compared with those of students throughout the state and the nation. Another reason is that the test measures the same fundamental skills or abilities for all students.

A week ago he visited military camps from coast to coast, defending the war, attacking his critics. On Sepff. 29 in a talk broadcast nationwide he explained the war and the reasons for being in it. There was nothing defensive about it. He has overdone other things in the past and may overdo the aggressive bit. Last week he brought back the two top American officials in Vietnam: Ambassador Ellsworth Bunker and Gen. William C. Westmoreland, the U.S. commander. Johnson's desire to confer with them was the reason given for their return. There may have been another one, too: To spread'good cheer about Vietnam. The two men made repeated public, statements and appearances. Despite all their statements, all they really said was they're optimistic about the war. They could have stayed in Vietnam and said all that in a letter. ecution of Yezhov himself and : !?6 to the number one hit of the rise of Lavrenty Beria as Stalin's final hangman. And for Mrs. Ginzburg, in the depth of nowhere in Kolyma, there was the acid satisfaction of seeing her original NKVD tormentor, the major who conducted her early interrogation, dying from his own suffering and begging a crust of bread from her for his last meal. There can be little question, in this 50th jubilee year of Communist power in the Soviet Union, that a document of historical significance has been produced which —in spite of Mrs. Ginzburg's own absolution of it—will stand for a long time as a powerful indictment of the Soviet system. HOLIDAY VISITORS (Times Herald News Service) WALL LAKE — Dr. and Mrs. Ken Brotherton and children Tom, John and Susan of Pittsford, N. Y., came Saturday to spend Thanksgiving in the Howard Brotherton home.

The number one hit you say? Thomas Edison? This was only part of the scene Nov. 14 as the students of M.H.S. were taken on a historical musical tour of the world. Mr. Parkinson, an avid collector of historical musical instruments, is now continuing the work started by his grandfather in 1855 and taken up by his father later on. Included in Mr. Parkinson's collection are some 400 different musical instruments from all. over the world — the oldest dating back into the period before Christ, During his lecture, Mr. Parkinson played German records made 200 years ago. "The Runaway Automobile" by Thomas Edison, the first record with spoken words, was played on a very old record player. Mr. Parkinson himself played several selections, including an opera song, on a 328-year-old bass cello. , A Chinese violin, a Swedish no-string violin, an African modified bow, a. blind man's drum, a thumb piano from Africa, and a Norwegian table violin played with a feather were all demonstrated. Mr. Parkinson closed by explaining that each year, \vith the help of scouts sent all over 3 Issues Pass; Another Fails By The Associated Press Three school bond issues were approved but a plan to finance a courthouse was rejected in local Iowa elections Tuesday.
