Merry Od ••mid By Drew PMHIO* WASHINGTON - Secretary of Defense McNamara has seemed obsessed recently with worry over Red china. It appears to overshadow all his decisions in the Pentagon and his discussions with Congress. A series of Chinese experts testifying before the Far Eastern Subcommittee of the House Foreign Affairs Committee were not so worried. Their conclusion was that China was no threat to the United States as long as we did not encroach on her territory. Most of the experts doubted that China would even threaten the neighboring Asian nations around her. - o - —VIET NAM WAR POLITICS— The Viet Nam war is already a burning political issue in the Oregon gubernatorial election, and it looks as if the Democrats will be snowed under. Teaming up in an unofficial alliance are Sen. Wayne Morse, Democrat, the No. 1 Senate "dove," and Gov. Mark Hatfield, Early Bird Special ! 20-Inch . . . 3-h.p.

Maurlne Nenberger. Paced with this formidable Democratic-Republican alliance, the Johnson administration persuaded Rep. Robert Duncan of Medford, ore., to run for governor. But since Duncan Is something of a sacrificial candidate, the White House let it be known that he will get a U. S. judgeship if and when defeated. "We have the alternative of fighting the communists in the elephant grass of Viet Nam or in the rye grass on the banks of the Columbia River/' said Congressman Duncan. "It's one of the most warhawk announcements I have heard," proclaimed Morse, promising to campaign up and down the state of Oregon against his fellow Democrat. —MERRY-GO-ROUND— It was because Judge Thurman Arnold, former trust buster under the New Deal, was fond of pickles that burglars were routed from the Arnolds' Alexandria, Va., home. Getting up at 2 a. m. to go down to the refrigerator and get a kosher pickle, the judge found the window open and his wife's heirloom silver wrapped up in tablecloths waiting for the thieves to come back. They'd gone for their car. When they got back the police were there thanks to an appetite for pickles. ... Rep. Chester Mize, R-Kans., credits Bill Colrin of the Manhattan, Kans., Mercury with the idea of giving free mailing privileges to servicemen to send their voices on tape back home. Mize reports that members of the Post Office Committee seemed to be enthusiastic over the Idea, and the bill will probably pass * . , Rep. Robert Wilson of California, chairman of the Republican Congressional Campaign Committee, is dickering for wholesale rates to buy several thousand copies of Clark Mollenhoffs book, "Despoilers of Democracy," which reviews past Washington scandals.
