Algono, (In.) Upper Des Moines Tuesday, April 26, 1966 WASHINGTON - Congressmen can have a wonderful time junketing abroad, but the chickens that hatch on those junkets sometimes come home to roost. Rep. Mike Feighan, the mercurial Democrat from Cleveland is now finding this out. He has been frantically buttonholing Congressional colleagues asking them to sign an affidavit that he did not call the late President Kennedy a "nigger lover" or describe Presidents Kennedy, Roosevelt and Truman as "procommunist.'' What Congressman Feighan is worried about is the fact that he faces very tough primary opposition from another Democrat, Michael Sweeney, a live-wire Ohio legislator, and that the chickens hatched on an Immigration junket to Geneva, Switzerland, have come home to roost. Feighan had a wonderful time on this trip at the taxpayers' expense. This column, reporting on it, said Feighan had taken his son with him, let him sit in on one meeting supposed to be confined to U. S. officials only; that he spent more time sightseeing than at official meetings; he took one sightseeing tour to Mont Blanc in a limousine supplied by U. S. Immigration Commissioner Ray Farrell; and that he blew off steam against then - Attorney General Bobby Kennedy for letting Russian Orthodox priests who had fled from the Soviet to Turkey later enter the United States. Feighan called them communist infiltrators. What really got under Feighan's skin, however, was this column's account of a dinner, on Oct. 16, attended by various Congressmen, State Department officials and European diplomats, at which Feighan castigated the late President Kennedy and said he could not vote for his reelection because of his "left wing attitudes and his softe- ness on communism." Feighan also called Mrs. Roosevelt a "nigger lover," accused Roosevelt and Truman of being pro-communist, and said he could not possibly vote for Kennedy's civil rights bill. - o - -U. S, WINE IN PARIS ?The idea of a Frenchman sipping California red wine on the Champs Elysees in Paris may seem impossible today, yet it may happen tomorrow. Thanks to President Johnson's program to improve our balance of payments by pushing exports and to his use of American wines at the White House, California wines are now invading both France and Switzerland, Alarge French grocery chain, Prisunic, is planning to- sell three brands of California wines next year as part of the California sales festival. Thirty years ago the American wine industry struggled to its feet after prohibition knocked it out. But today more foreign students are coming here to learn grape-growing and wine-making at California schools than the winegrowing industry of France Drew Pearson would like to admit. President Johnson's policy of using only American wines at White House dinners has something to do with publicizing all this. - o — PREDICTION CAME TRUE— Sometimes it takes a considerable period for a newspaper story to be vindicated. Readers will be interested therefore in some recent developments which bear out facts carried in the Washington Merry-Go-Round. On December 11, 1965 - Jack Anderson carried a revealing follow up on the Yarmouth Castle disaster, in which he reported that a great many vessels were failing to conform to the Coast Guard minimum safety standards. He listed some of these foreign vessels, including the .Viking Princess which sailed under the Norwegian flag. Few recent columns have evoked so much reader protest a t this one. And Drew Pearson's office has been busy answering mail ever since. However, recently, unfortunately, the Viking Princess caught fire, two passengers died and the ship itself was an almost total wreck. - o —$100 PER LIFE— Most accidents on the highway are caused by jackknifing, says Jimmy Hoffa, head of the Teamsters Union and the most famous truck driver in the nation. Testifying before the Senate commerce Committee, Hoffa said that jackknifing could be corrected by the use of a fifth wheel, which would cost about $100 per truck. Sen. Norris Cotton, R-N.H., asked Hoffa how the fifth wheel would affect the performance of the truck. "It has nothing to do with speed," replied Hoffa. "It is a safety device pure and simple." Sen. Cotton asked if it were cumbersome. "You can pick it up. It weighs about 12 Ibs.; you can carry it in your hand," said Hoffa. Sen. Cotton remarked: "It's not like the fifth wheels we have in Congress; it doesn't slow it up." "What you are saying," said Sen. Vance Hartke, D-Ind., "is that, for about $100 for each $12,000 piece of equipment, we can eliminate all. of the jackknifing deaths o_n the highways?" "You can say they are killed for the lack of $100," Hoffa agreed. "Certainly a life is worth more than $100." - o —SENATE'S NO. 1 DOVE- Bushy-browed Sen. Wayne Morse, D-Ore., No. 1 Senate dove, attended an Oregon fundraising dinner. It was reported in advance that Democratic members of the Oregon legislature would boycott the dinner in protest against Morse's criticism of American involvement in Viet Nam. "I'm surprised to see so many members of the legislature present tonight,' ' said Morse, when he got up to speak. "I heard they were going to boy- USED CARS 1965 CHEVROLET IMPALA. 4 dr. hardtop.

"Perhaps that's why so many people came, " cracked Wayne acidly. "I hear the legislators are not going to support me. I want to tell them now that I don't want their support. I don't want their Wood on my hands." There was a roar from the audience. "I've got bad news for you," Morse continued. "My doctor has just given me the annual physical checkup, and says I'm fit and able to run again. I hereby announce my candidacy for 1968." The audience rose to its feet. Note: Morse received 22,000 letters during the past four weeks regarding his criticism of the war in South Viet Nam. He has had to ask for volunteers to answer it all. Ninety-seven per cent of the letters have teen pro-Morse and anti-war. - o - —CAMPAIGN STRATEGY- TWO able, young freshmen Congressmen, Reps. James H. Scheuer, D-N. Y., and Richard D. (Max) McCarthy, D.-N. Y., were discussing possible reelection problems in this year's campaign. Scheuer, who is Jewish, told McCarthy, who is Irish Catholic: "Max, a freshman Congressman never has an easy time in a campaign because the voters are always cautious about him. He must work very hard down here and have a spotless record. "I have done my best, 'but I am not sure that the Jews, for example, in my Bronx district are completely satisfied with my efforts. I get some letters from Jewish constituents that are pretty critical." "Jim, I have the same feeling sometimes about the Irish voters in my Buffalo district," McCarthy reflected. "My votes don't always satisfy them. It's impossible to make everyone happy, of course. "Look, Jim," said McCarthy, you get along fine with the Irish and I get along fine with Jewish voters. Mayte we ought to exchange visits and make campaign speeches for each other before the election." "Sounds like a great idea," said Scheuer. "Let's try to arrange it." Cresco Boys Cresco Boys Club met April 18 at the Extension office. David Sabin reported on 4-H Day and presented the ribbon to the club. We received information for our record books.
