Ptarton WASHINGTON * Rep. Hettry fceuse, D-Wis., has been worrying about our balance of payments deficit. And some of-the spending we are doing abtoad has him a little baffled, Mis Government Operations Subcommittee has found that we have been paying foreign scientists $70,000,000 for unusual if not downright peculiar research on the smells of ocean fish, the perspiration habits of Abori- glries In Australia, Norwegian fatally life in Isolated communities, the birth cycles of ptarmigans In Iceland, and monkey benavlor in Africa by Canadians. Iteuss is not - up to now, at least - arguing there may hot be some scientific merit in some of these projects, because in this day of far-out developments, who knows? But when American business investors are being asked to cut down on building foreign plants thai will return profits to the United States, when even American soldiers overseas are being told to buy American as much as possible, he wonders if some of these scientific projects couldn't be cut back or be postponed. Our balance of payments deficit is down to around $1.3 billion a year. But any deficit means that foreigners can make claims on our precious and dwindling supply of gold. The administration and international bankers generally "are quite concerned about this. Paying dollars to foreign scientists adds to the deficit. Reuss would like to know how catastrophic it would be, for example, to either eliminate or postpone the payment of $45,000 to Norwegian psychiatrists to report on the geographic movement of mentally unstable people in Norway. Or ''why we have to pay our dollars to Canadians who want to study monkeys In Africa, when Canada is prosperous and could pay for its own scientific research v - If Canadians want to -Jtnow so much about African monkeys. And that goes also for bills we are paying for other scientists from other prosperous countries such as Japan, Austrailia and New Zealand. The Iceland ptarmigan study, you may be interested In learning, resulted from a State Department request that something be done by us to promote cultural exchanges with Iceland. Our National Science Foundation sent a man up there to find something we could do and came back with the suggestion we might like to know about ptarmigan birth cycles. The ptarmigan is a bird, if you weren't aware of it. -o- - -WHO'S FULBRIGHT 7— A lieutenant colonel in Viet Nam took a poll of his men the other day on' what they thought of the Fulbright committee debate over the war in Viet Nam, Much to his surprise, the colonel learned that the great majority of his men didn't know who Fulbright was. The Arkansas Senator has been in congress for a quarter of a century and has been chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee longer than any other recent Senator, Some Gts referred to him as a "dirty communist." ft looks as if American troops needed the old education and information training courses they got in World war n. * o* -«KP FOR GENERALS— or* Howard L, Beerman of Columbia University, at a recent conference with members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, reported on a communist military practice which American GIs probably would like to see adopted by the United States, He was telling the committee how the Chinese communists have tried to install better morale In their armed forces. One campaign they tried in an attempt to prevent rank con- sciousness'and to restore comradeship" between troops and their officers was called "officers to the ranks." "Officers," Dr. Beerman said, "including general officers, returned for a period to the ranks. Some generals were even doing KP and sentry duty, This must have been delightful for the privates, but I doubt that the generals were as wildly enthusiastic." If Secretary of Defense Mc- Namara wants to be popular, this it one idea that could win him a lot of GI friends. - o--CONFLAGRATION IN AFRICA- In strife-torn Africa, few leaders who hate been kicked out of office have been able to make a comeback. Many of them hate been killed. Ousted president Nkrumah of Ghana was in Peking when his overthrow occurred, which was lucky for him. But Nkrumah apparently is going to make an effort to regain power, operating from Guinea as a base* And this could be extremely dangerous, because he would need to take troops with him, and this would mean crossing the territory of the Ivory Coast. The Ivorty Coast Is strongly anti-communist, strongly for free enterprise, but poorly armed. Its president, Hou- phouet-Boigny, has prided himself on spending money on economic development rather than arms. He has welcomed foreign capital, and more American factories have been built in the Ivory Coast than any other West African country. Undoubtedly Nkrumah got the promise of more Chinese arms, possibly also Russian, during his stops In Peking and Moscow. He also may be able to reclaim some of the Chinese arms previously distributed via Ghana to various parts of Africa. Nkrumah also had sent Ghanaians to Red China for special guerrilla training. He obviously expects they would join any army he might bring from Guinea.

Northwestern Bell Liberia, to the west Guinea, is pro-American and would undoubtedly get Into any war to block a communist takeover of Ghana, the new military government of Nigeria would also probably get involved. While American Investments in west Africa are heavy, the politics of West Africa is even more important. African communism, once planted to West Africa, would certainly spread- north to the Sahara, now being developed for oil, and east to other unstable African republics. This would present Washing' ton with a serious question of supplying arms, possibly troops, to reinforce pro-West African governments. - o- --MOTION PICTURE CgAR— For over a year the motion picture producers have been looking around for a man to replace Eric Johnston as the so- called "czar" of motion pictures. It's a difficult job to fill. The czar must be greatly respected, have excellent judgment, be able to represent the entire industry effectively. But the search is over: they've settled on Louis Nizer, famous New York lawyer who won the Quentin Reynolds libel suit against Westbrook Pegler and wrote the best-seller book, "My Life in Court." Nizer is expected to give up his million-dollar law practice and move to the Motion Picture Producers Association offices in Washington this spring. -PAGING MR. POWELL- Rep. Adam Clayton Powell, the handsome, gallivanting Harlem globetrotter, is on the loose again. When he was being pursued by a process-server in New York libel suit, he was quite faithful In answering roll calls in Washington, did an excellent job of passing legislation. He had told the court that his presence was essential in Washington. Now that a New York judge has rendered a verdict, Powell has become a chronic absentee from his Important Education and Labor Committee. He didn't show up even when the House Administration Committee approved a 1966 fund for his committee, though later that day he turned up, big as life, on the House floor. Chief gripe against the volatile Congressman from Harlem is that he won't let other members of his committee investigate the anti-poverty program and some of Its inefficiencies in the big cities. In Boston, Powell suddenly stopped a probe of kickbacks involving certain anti-poverty officials. Four committee Investigators quit in disgust. Other committee staffers have been yanked out of a dozen other cities before they could make a real Investigation of the antipoverty program, especially charges of high salaries paid to officials with not enough money going to the poor. In Harlem, for example, there have been widespread charges about the misuse of both federal and New- York City funds for anti- poverty work. An estimated 60 percent of the money goes for staff salaries, some as high as $25,000. New Haven's anti-poverty chief gets $25,000, which is $7,000 more than the mayor, to New Jersey, the Job pays $24,000; in Washington D. C., $25,000, which is more than many judges and heads of federal agencies get. The boss in Boston, who resigned in a furor over "fiscal irresponsibility," received $27,500 a year. - o - RIVALS SWALLOWED— How big soap and cigarette companies gobble up little companies, thanks to whopping TV advertising discounts, is being investigated by Sen. Philip Hart as well as Rep. John Dingell, both Detroit Democrats. Here are some cases now being probed, showing how cheap TV advertising given by the networks to big companies puts little companies out of business: 1. Alpo Dog Pood was sold to Liggett & Myers because it could not compete with the heavy TV advertising and TV discounts given to Gaines Dog Food, which is owned by General Foods. After Alpo became a subsidiary of Liggett & Myers, it secured advertising discounts on television because of L & M's heavy volume of cigarette advertising. 2. "All" couldn't stand the competition against Procter & Gamble's Tide and Colgate's FAB because All was owned by Monsanto which couldn't get TV advertising discounts. Procter & Gamble could. "All" has now been purchased by Lever Bros., , More* Id, 1966 Alflone (to.) lift* ftH one of the big soap advertisers, and gets the benefit of TV discounts. 3.
