WASHINGTON Jelmseii no gadfly, prodding barecnn as Kennedy did By Brace Biossat WASHINGTON — (NEA) — and overseer. Notwithstanding the image of some index of the Johnson Prerident Lyndon Johnson ram- approach may be had from a pant on a field of telephone dose adviser who, talking of wire, it is being suggested in Kennedy's habit of telephomng some quarters that the W h i t e subordinate State Department House today is much less an officials, said: "inflnential presence" in the F.

There is on the various departments and agencies of government Under Kennedy, the 'White House hand was felt in many places. Under Johnson, say these sources, it is not. Whether this is good or bad evidently depends on the view one takes of the White House role in the modem bureaucra cy. The late President and some of his most trusted associates were said to feel that the great bureaucratic glacier could not bo moved into necessary new channels without heavy, thrusting pressures from the \Vhite House. Symbol of that pressure was Kennedy picking up the telephone and asking some midrange State Department officer what he meant on page 230 of department document 6402. Inquiries like that, supplemented by a cascade of provocative memos from his desk, sent quivers through the department's quiet inner core. Kennedy and his group felt that State and Defense were in especial need of producing. At Defense, Secretary McNamara largly did their work for them State was a tougher case. Difficulties did not wholly dis may them. White House attitudes and purposes were stead ily communicated to many agencies. The presidential establishment intervened in disputes. It functioned almost as a kind of fourth branch of government, with supracabinet officers providing major guidance. The evidence of change is still fragmentary, but it does seem to be real. A thoughtful Washington lawyer whose firm does constant business with three major government agencies says that the ^Vhite House hand just is n o t there any more. Others he knows agree. He happens to be one who thinks such guidance is good, and that the agencies suffer in not having it A source closer to the seat of power says Johnson sends State virtually no challenging memos. This man indicates that the department is "off the alert", and, by his measure, plodding ponderously along. He also blames the long internal harangue over details of the antipoverty fight on lack of a White House figure authorized to set ground rules and k n o c k heads together. There are some signs the new President may look upon such ^Vhite House overlordship as both meddlesome and unwise, that he wants his cabmet offi cers and agency heads to be masters in their own houses. Ample testimony exists that he sees key government heads somewhat more often than did John Kennedy, that he relies upon thra directly to get the job dMie, rather than employing his White House staff as prod |.

WASHINGTON (UPI)- The Agriculture Department openedj public hearmgs today to determine whether new restrictions should be placed on three pesticides widely used by farmers. The hearings follow complaints by the Public Health Service and state of Louisiana that water pollution by such pesticides appeared to be the cause of massive kiUmg of fish in the Mississippi River. Interior Secretary Stewart; Udall told a Senate subcommittee Wednesday Uiat Uie Mississippi fish kill was sympto­ matic of conditions throughout the country. He said lake trout m New York failed to reproduce because of pesticide in the water and cited other examples. lie Agriculture Department hearing was called to discuss uses and effects of endrin, al- drm and dieldrin. The department previously certified them as deadly to insects but, when properly used, not dangerous^ta human beings or animal life. In a statement prepared for the opening of the hearing, Justus Ward, director of Uie pesti cides regulation di^on, dis cussed what the agency knew about the three chemicals and hoped to leam about them. Ward said several chemical compounds had been found in significant quantities in dead and dying fish and in the water environment He said these included at least two unidentified substances and endrin and dieldrin. "Data are not available as to the origin of the two chemicals found in the water," Ward said. "They may have resulted from water nmoff from agricul- turla land treated with the in-l secticides, or from discharge of wastes,plants manufactor |ing dieldrin or endrin, or from plants formulating them as finished insecticides, or other sources." Ward said all information relating to uses of the chemicals and the cause of the fish kill "is essential to the departmentj in meeting its responsibilities with respect to the re^stration and use of pesticides." He said the information particularly was needed as a basis for determining what corrective measures, if any, should be taken to cancel or modify re^stra tion of endrin, aldria, and diel­ drin, whether or not the loss of fish is involved," Ward said. Ward asked for testimony that would point up the cause of the fish losses, the origin of j the pesticides found in the Mississippi, and the importance of the chemicals to the produc tion of crops.
