mrnmrnn By DrOW How can part of an atomic reactor get lost between the United States and India? Atomic reactors are among the most Important pieces of machinery in the world. There are not too many of them j and if you have the secret of a peacetime atomic reactor, you can eventually inake an atomic bomb for military purposes. Despite this, parts of anatomic reactbr which the United States was sending to India got lost, reportedly in the hold of a ship. Indian and American officials have been searching everywhere, but the missing piece can't be located. There is no clue as to whether they were stolen or got mixed up with other cargo. At any rate,; they are just as minus as the nuclear bomb which got lost over Spain recently. < - o- —PISTOLS FOR MARINES— Many enlisted Marines have written to their parents from South Viet Nam begging for pistols to be sent them direct. Reason is that in hand-to-hand Jungle fighting, rifles are cumbersome. Pistols are much more effective. However, only officers and non-commissioned officers are permitted to carry sidearms. A lot of Marines want to get around this restriction by getting revolvers direct from their families. -fl- anged the hasty conference in Honolulu to get the immediate approval of the South Vietnamese government. But he forgot to take Humphrey along. When Premier Ky agreed, the President sent word to the Vice President to pack his bags and start for Saigon. The only briefing Humphrey got on what the President wanted was in their short conference at the San Francisco airport. Then Humphrey had to take off to implement a program whose details he barely knew. President Johnson, incidentally, was so pleased with the results of his Honolulu conference with South Vietnamese leaders that he is planning to hold another, follow-up conference next fall. - o - —GET-RICH QUICKERS— American promoters are already staking out claims in South Viet Nam, One former Army officer has been surveying the beach front at Nha Trang. He hopes to form a syndicate!) to buy up the beach and turn it into the playground of Asia. For it has all the attractions - warm water, pleasant sand, temperate climate, short rainy season and a protected bay. Another American, who went to Viet Nam as a truck driver, now owns one of the finest villas in the country and is building a hotel. - o - -LATE STARTER HUMPHREY- —CHURCH AND STATE— Vice President Humphrey's trip to South Viet Nam was so sudden that he was only partly briefed on the social and economic reforms LBJ wanted him to promote. Yet in a way it was Humphrey's idea. For it was the Vice President who first! came to the President a year ago to plead for a social as well as a military offensive in souttyviet-NamT -• -»••••-•---• The ftrategy was developed by EdwardSlSansdaie, a retired Air Force general, who sold his views to Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge and the Vice President, Humphrey took them to the President, who permitted Lansdale to try out some of his ideas on a small scale. When the resumption of bombing of North Viet Nam brought a sour reaction in the Senate and in the U. N., the President decided suddenly to try out Lansdale's recommendations and arr- Sen. Ervin of North Carolina has invited some of the nation's leading clergymen to testify before his Constitutional Rights Subcommittee, beginning March 8, on the separation of church and state. He will ask whether federal programs infringe on church rights, and whether some churches are willing to accept "federal interfeTehte'becatisfe-they' need the money.,. ,, s •;.. , f-'« Ervin is considering 'a bill that would permit individuals to sue the federal government for return of any taxes used to support religious activities, provided this can be shown to be in violation of the First Amendment. National Detective's chief, Chauncey James, stated frankly on his. registration form that one of his functions was "to ascertain the activities of certain Haitian citizens, govern- ment officials and former government officials who are presently In the USA." Note: In 1959, Richard Chamber registered as a Haitian agent to furnish information on people "conspiring against the Haitian regime." - o - -HEADLINES AND FOOTNOTES- Vice President Hubert Humphrey, who is still looking for an appropriate place to hang his hat, has framed a letter written by Vice President George Dallas more than 100 years ago. The letter indicates that Dallas also had trouble over where to live .... "The more things change," says Humphrey, "the more they remain the same." .... Lobbyists constantly throw parties for Senators, but last week a group of Senators arranged a surprise party for a lobbyist. Sen. Vance Hartke, D-Ind., learned that one of the most popular lobbyists on Capitol Hill, Chuck Lipsen, had reached his 40th birthday. So Hartke got together with some of his colleagues and cooked up a birthday party. So many Senators showed up that they could have had a quorum call around the cake. . . . This column recently reported that Congressmen had been holding their annual golf tournament at the fashionable Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, Fla., despite the fact that the hotel barred Jewish guests. The story implied that Rep. Edward Derwinski, R-fll., who arranged the 1965 tournament, wasn't concerned. This column has now learned that Derwinski wrote to the hotel, threatening to cancel the tournament unless the hotel stopped discriminating against Jews. We are happy to clarify the story. - o- —PRIVATE SPIES— The FBI is investigating the practice of certain foreign governments to hire American private detectives to spy on political refugees who have been granted asylum In this country.

One of the worst offenders is the island dictatorship of Haiti which, over the years, has hired the following detective firms: Associated Detectives, Inc., Miami; Borger Associates, New •?;York city; and National Detective ^Agencies, Inc., Washington. 11 Musicians From Burf Get I Ratings BURT - Burt Elementary students garnered 11 - I ratings out of 16 entries in the Elementary Instrumental Music Contest at Mason City Saturday.
