By Craw WASffiNGfOir * Aft debate has raged behind closed 1 White House doorsoverhowmany troops will be needed to hold South Viet Ham, Some military men agree with Gen. James Gavin that we should stop chasing guerrillas through the elephant grass and concentrate on defending American bases and south Viet Mam cities, this shouldn't require much more than the 200,000 troops already fighting In Viet Nam. Other military strategists are urging an aggressive campaign against the Viet Cong - which, they estimate, might take as high as a million men. They also are calling for air attacks on Hanoi and Haiphong. President Johnson has rejected both plans. He has scornfully described Gavin's holding strategy as "slow surrender" and has called the opposite advice "dangerously reckless." The Joint Chiefs of Staff have recommended a rapid buildup to around 400,000 men. But Secretary of Defense McNamara now believes our forces can continue their present search-and- destroy operations with fewer than 300,000 men, on the basis of present estimates of enemy strength. ; . These estimates vary but it is generally accepted that the Viet Cong have 87,000 regulars and 110,000 Irregulars, to addition, at least 18,000 North Vietnamese regulars are believed to have infiltrated into South Viet Nam, but some intelligence reports warn that the true total may be double that figure.. McNamara now believes a major escalation of the war can be avoided If we restrict our air raids in the north to the kind of targets that previously were hit. Further, he points out that a large number of our troops are in construction units that will be replaced this year by combat forces. This will improve put striking force without increasing the total number of men in Viet Mam. backstage. '* Johnson agree with McNamara. - o- '"'•'.' — UN. GAMBIT— President Johnson's decision to submit the Viet Nam war to the United Nations was made at thf last minute on the urgent advice of Ambassador Arthur Goldberg. Goldberg warned the President that a resolution would be introduced in the U. N. to condemn the United States for renewing the bombing of North Viet Nam. Therefore, Goldberg argued, the best strategy was to beat our critics to the punch by offering an American resolution putting the entire problem In the U. N.'slap. . o- —FEDERAL WIRE TAPPING-- 1 The Justice Department is doing its best to kill an unusual law suit brought by the Fremont Hotel in Las Vegas against the Central Telephone Co. and four members of the FBI tor placing 25 telephone taps in the Fremont Hotel and other hotels In Las Vegas. If s against the law to tap telephone wires in Nevada. The telephone company has told the justice Department U will not be responsible for the •Ix million dollars damages which the Fremont Hotel is seeking. The company told justice that it permitted the wire taps at the specific request of the FBL and that therefore the Justice Department must accept full responsibility in the suit, •••POLITIC KING PENNSYLVANIA** Ex-Governor George Leader of Pennsylvania, who once was undercut by Democratic bosses when be ran for the Senate, now la being wooed by the same bosses, who &re almost frantic to persuade him to run again for governor of Pennsylvania. The Democratic party faces .a real vacuum, and Leader is widely regarded as the only man who can fill it. But Leader says he positively will not be a candidate. "The trouble with the political bosses," said the ex- governor to a friend, "is that they use you and then discard you. Pm not going to use up my political strength at their whim." Every political survey shows the Democratic party running stronger than , the Republicans in Pennsylvania, and many Democrats believe that the party has a great opportunity to elect a governor this fall. They'll keep up the pressure on Leader. --FBI COMMAND-The right wing has been greatly 'alarmed recently over rumors that Adam Yarmollnsky was due to replace J. Edgar Hoover ac head of the FBL Yarmollnsky was a trustedas- slstant to the late President Kennedy, but has been criticized by right wingers because of his strong antt-McCarthyite views. The successor to J. Edgar Hoover, now 71 years old, probably will not be Yarmollnsky, but a man already hand-picked by Hoover and already very close to President Johnson, Deak DeLoach, now Assistant Director of the FBI. The President even has a telephone on his desk which goes direct to DeLoach, who has been the liaison man between the FBI and the White House and odds are that when Hoover retires, Johnson will [just remove the • woW ""asWstjCht": ""from " DeLoach's present title. 1 • '.: ' - o - —LABOR ANGRY AT LBJ— President George Meany of the AFL-CIO is fit to be tied over what he views as President Johnson's failure to offer more than lip service to union demands. The President hasn't lifted a finger, he claims, to get repeal of Section 14-b of the Taft- Hartley law through the Senate. Meany is also angry over the quiet opposition of White House aides to the $1.75 minimum wage. They have spread the word that a $1.75 minimum wage would violate the President's economic guidelines and would contribute to inflation. As a result, the bill to boost the minimum wage from $1.25 to $1.75 has become bottled in the House Labor sub-committee. - o- - HOFFA'S VICTORY— Jimmy Hoffa, of the Teamsters Union, won a very important preliminary decision from the Supreme Court when it agreed to review his conviction for jury tampering, The Supreme Court decided to bear evidence as to whether the government placed a secret informer inside Hoffa's inner defense council, namely Edward G. Partin, Partin is a former Teamsters official in Baton Rouge who was jailed on the technical charge of kidnapping one of bis children, and who while in jail told how be was going to go to work fot the Justice Department and Bobby Kennedy against Hoffa. Aside from a re-airing of sensational details, the case gives Hoffa -a good chance to be reelected head of the Teamsters next July for another five years, since the election will take place before the Supreme Court can decide the case. But, in addition, the Supreme Court may well hold that placing an informer in the secret defense council of a man the government is prosecuting is a violation of his rights under the Constitution. * o - *-WHAT PRICE YOUTH?Youthful Rep. Andy Jacobs, Jr., D-lnd., 33, who has a sense of humor like his father, a former House member, doesn't get annoyed by the lordly airs of senior colleagues, some of whom still don't recognize him. The Hoogier freshman was about to have his hair trimmed In the Capitol barbershop not long ago when 280-pound Rep. Robert A. "Fats" Everett, D- Tenn., literally the biggest man in the House, waved him to one side. "You'll have to wait, son," snapped Everett. "Congressmen have seniority in these chairs." And when Jacobs was in the Democratic cloakroom, veteran Rep. Jimmy Morrison, D-La., who was making a phone call, wagged a finger at him and com- maded, "Son, find out where they are on that roll call on the floor." Jacobs returned soon and informed Morrison, "They're on the ffs, sir." A newsman friend suggested that Jacobs should put an end to this tomfoolery by making known his Identity, but the good- natured young • Hoosier only grinned.

"The best way for a newcomer to make himself known around here is to establish a good legislative record." Note - When handsome young Sen. Birch Bayh, D.-Ind., first began serving several years ago, he pushed the button tor the Capitol Subway train that hauls Senators back and forth. The subway operator looked over Bayh, standing there alone, and chlded him, "Son, don't you ever do that again. Don't you know that bell is for Senators?"

This boy may stay on the farm all right, but there'll be many changes. Sons don't farm like their fathers did in this period of rapid change. In his father's lifetime, for instance, bigger and better machinery has given him the power to farm more land in less time, with less labor. Electricity has taken over many of the backbreaking, time-consuming chores. New chemicals give him powerful weapons in the fight against insects and diseases. New fertilizers boost crop yields. By 1970, when this youngster is farming on his own, at least . 200,000,000 Americans will be counting on the farmer for food and other essential products. But even with these 30,000,000 more mouths to feed, the fruitfulness of American farms will provide all we need and more. Cooperatives help the farmer benefit from change; turn progress into profits. The advantages of employing cooperatives to get jobs done will belong to the son as they have to the father. That will not change ... and the future is brighter because of it.
