28^GQlesbuf &Efaist ^r^Mdil, Gotesburg, 111. Monday, Mqy 14, 1973 Bunker Leaves Post By PHIL NEWSOM UPI Foreign News Analyst EndofauErt: U.S. Ambassador Ellsworth Bunkef left Saigon without the Foreign News Commentary trophy and accompanying scroll that the American press corps had planned for him. The scroll was to testify to his "six arduous years" in South Vietnam, and the trophy was to be a captured Viet Cong flashlight "to ensure that there will always be light at the end of the tunnel." But a last-minute scouring of Saigon failed to turn up a Viet Cong flashlight and the project flickered out. Bunker has no plans to write his memoirs, despite nearly a quarter-century in diplomatic hot spots around the globe and a number of offers from publishers. Bunker, who is independently wealthy, says he is going to follow the example of General of the Army George Catlett Marshall: No memoirs. Tough Talk to Nixon: Diplomatic chanceries say President Nixon will run into some rough weather over his grand design for the new Atlantic charter when he confers with French President George* Pompidou in Iceland May 3l-June 1. Diplomatic experts say Pompidou is certain to tell Nixon France is hostile, to U.S. suggestions that Washington's economic, politi- 'Light at Eiid of Tunnel 9 cal and monetary links with Western partners be overhauled in one big negotiation linking up all the Issues. France's new foreign minister, Michel Jobcrt, a Pompidou ex-aide, has told the National Assembly Foreign Affairs Committee France wants to have separate talks on monetary and trade issues and wilt oppose any horse-trading mixing up the overhaul of the Bretton Woods monetary system and the next Nixon round of tariff cutting talks starting in September in Tokyo. Improving Relations: Look for Japan and Communist North Korea to establish trade offices in each other's capitals before the end of the year. Japan never has recognized North Korea, and has no plans to do so, but trade is expected to reach $250 million this year on a two-way basis. The Japanese budget for the next fiscal year contains an appropriation for putting a trade office in Pyongyang. wstsxsi* vBtmaai w?<Kse$a» SHKHHS SSBWMSSW «a »!JS «W 3K «VBf>KW 'fiSfcW* SBBSRWH? asftwsHiia iwssfKaaa <*sw* RBfiMssssra KsasMtKs mmmsf •$& HOW HUNGRY IS YOUR CAR FOR GAS?

By ARNOLD B. SAWISLAK WASHINGTON (UPI)Some time having passed since John B. Connally informed the world that he has become a Republican, it seems safe to conclude that the Democratic Party will survive the shock. Will the GOP? Washington Window Even if Connally's long- expected conversion does lure some other nominal Democrats to defect with him, the losses to his former party now seem likely to be limited to Texas and perhaps a couple of other southern states. Politicians sniff at no reductions of their strength, but the fact is that the National Democratic Party has been in bad odor in those parts for some time, and without Lyndon Johnson might have been shut out in Texas and much of the South during the 1960s. Democratic Position The loss of a handful of Texas and other Southern members of Congress does not seriously threaten the Democratic position on Capitol Hill. The potential switches do not seem numerous enough to shift control of the House or Senate, and most of those who might go over have been voting with the GOP on legislation for a long time. In summary, the Connally departure, while not an obvious plus for the Democrats, does not look like more than a small- change minus. Now consider what it might mean on the Republican side. First, anyone can guess that it hasn't helped the disposition of Vice President Spiro T. Agnew, who is the GOP conservative wing's most likely champion for 1976. Despite his association with the Kennedy administration (Navy secretary), Connally's conservative credentials are just about as valid as Agnew's; he has far more experience in both state and national government; and he has as many (or more) potential rich backers. And not Jeast, Connally came up in Texas' cut-throat politics, compared to which Agnew's Maryland scene is a dainty minuet. Other conservative GOP S residential possibles — Gov. :onald Reagan of California and John Connally Sen. William Brock of Tennes-lly see for two—also cannot ignore the arrival, of Connally. In addition to all of the above points, Connally has youth to contrast with the aging Reagan and maturity to overshadow Brock. Republican liberals have no more cause for complacency. Gov. Nelson Rockefeller of New York and Sen. Charles Percy of Illinois are in a parallel position to Reagan and Brock' in the youth-age bracket, and anyone who has seen Connally in action has to give him the nod for political fluency over both those GOP liberal potential candidates. All of that being said, Connally still is a far fetch from getting the 1976 Republican presidential nomination. In the first place—and this is anj important point to political regulars—he is a Johnny-come- lately whose conversion to the Republican faith can be pictured as the only move open to him after he burned his Democratic bridges by serving President Nixon. j Second, while Connally has a; big reputation for political savvy and persuasiveness, Republicans are entitled to ask "What have you done lately?" —and to measure his potency against Agnew and the rest of the field in the 1974 congressional elections. If Connally campaigns extensively for GOP candidates, as it seems likely he will, you can be i sure the Republicans who will I be choosing the nominee in 1976 j will keep a detailed book on his successes and failures. If his: candidates flop, so may Connal-, 5 Cor Smash-up in Weaver-Yeram's "600" Race! Enthusiasm is the) greatest ingredient for success.
