JVUrry-CooRouitd *y Orow WASHINGTON - Sex seldom enters the closed-door hearings of Congress. But members of the House Immigration Sub-committee recall with amusement a sexy session when Rep. Michael Feighan, D-Ohio, tried to bar Ricliard Burton, the British lover, from the United States because he was romancing Elizabeth Taylor, whom he later married. Burton, then in Canada, was scheduled to do a benefit performance at the Lincoln Center in New York, and the Democratic Congressman from Cleveland proposed that the Immigration Service stop him at the border. In the closed door hearing, Feighan sulkily blamed Abba Schwartz of the State Department for giving Burton an entry visa. Since then, Schwartz has been "reorganized" out of the State Department, partly to appease Feighan and Ben. Tom Dodd, D-Conn. During the closed-door hearing over Richard Burton, Feighan was finally laughed down by Congressmen Peter Rodino, N. J., Jack Brooks, Tex., Democrats; and Arch Moore, W. Va., Republican. Burton was not stopped at the Canadian border. He gave his benefit performance at Lincoln Center. Liz Taylor, being an American citizen, didn't require a visa. The above incident has been recalled because of two recent developments regarding Rep. Feighan : l.His new bill, co- sponsored by Sen. Jim Eastland, Miss., to require special permits for Americans to travel abroad, which the Washington Post describes as "a dandy little scheme to make the land of the free into one vast continental concentration camp." 2. Feighan 1 s f ranctic campaing attempts to disavow his witch- hunting of the past in order to get re-elected. Thai; campaign has attracted more attention than any other Congressional' primary because Feighan, if re-elected, would eventually replace Rep. Emanuel Celler, the Brooklyn liberal, as chairman of the House Judiciary Committee which shapes some of the most important laws of the nation. - o - -"BIG JIM" ABSENTS HIMSELF— One of the most controversial judicial appointments made by LBJ skimmed through a Senate Judiciary Subcommittee almost unnoticed - that of Mrs. Constance Baker Motley to be a U. S. District Judge in New York. Mrs. Motley is famous in Mississippi, yet Sen. Eastland, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, was not around to question her. Mrs. Motley argued the case of James Meredith, first Negro to be admitted to the University of Mississippi, all through the courts in that state. She also argued the integration of transportation, including bus terminals, in the Sunflower State. She argued the case of Brown vs. the Board of Education, the school integration case in the lower courts, and helped Thurgood Marshall, attorney for the NAACP, to argue it before the Supreme Court. Laterally she has been attacking the Mississippi voting laws. The iK'iring on Mrs. Motley's qualifications to be a U. S, District Judge in New York was conducted by Sen. Jack Javits, Republican of New York, and Sen. Quentin Burdick of North Dakota, Democrat. Maybe it was because Degrees are voting this fall and Big Jim is up for re-election; or maybe it was because he didn't want to embarrass a Johnson appointee to the bench. Anyway, Jim Eastland was not there. —NOT MUCH HARDSHIP- The deeper you look into the curious finances of Sen. Tom Dodd, D-Conn., the less he resembles a hardship case who needs contributions from his friends to live in a style befitting a United States Senator. According to our estimates, he raised over $300,000 during the 1961-64 period * more than double what he needed to pay even his campaign expenses. On top of this be called upon his contributors to shell out still another $100,000 in March, 1965, to pay off his so-called "campaign deficit." His aides plead that Dodd is a poor man who can't make ends meet on his regular" income. However, new evidence has come to light that Dodd isn't as impoverished as he pretends. This column has already reported that in 1961 he paid taxes on an income of $88,031. 88, which should be enough even for a Senator to struggle along on. He paid no taxes on an additional $54,555.68, which he raised from a testimonial dinner and deposited in his personal bank account. This column also reported that $50,000. of his 1961 income was paid by ths Teamsters Union. But when his law partners tried to claim part of this fee, Dodd not only turned them down but complained that he wasn't collecting enough for the use of his name on the law-firm door. - o - — KOSYGIN ON VIET NAM— Soviet Premier Kosygin has assured U. S. visitors privately that Moscow does not intend to do anything to escalate the Viet Nam war. In fact, Kosygin has now acknowledged that the United States is in a very tough position and cannot withdraw from the war without some sort of face-saving arrangement. He said this probably .would require an international conference, but unfortunately, Russia also is in a tough spot and cannot openly promote such a conference. However, he said that the Kremlin would not obstruct efforts to reach a Viet Nam settlement. Meanwhile, reports from Viet Nam indicate that new political troubles are likely before elections can be held. Captured documents indicate the Viet Cong plan a campaign of propaganda and terror that will disrupt or*>-prevent the elections. At the same time, Premier Ky's government is coming apart at the seams as many officials abandon their duties to politic for the elections, and Catholic-Buddhist bitterness is growing. This political turmoil on top of our military difficulties during the monsoon season means the next few months in Viet Nam are going to be very tough indeed. - o - —RUSSIA'S MISSILE DEFENSE— The United States has sounded out the Kremlin informally about halting the missile race, suggesting that both countries agree not to install an anti-missile defense system. This would save billions, which both countries could better use for peace. However, the Russians have rejected the idea, perhaps because Russia is reported to be far ahead of the United States in developing an effective antimissile missile. They are reported to have designed an anti-missile missile that will fire a shotgun blast of warheads, like space shrapnel, far up in space, with each warhead then supposed to intercept a separate American missile. It it works, it could make Russia almost invulnerable to missile attack and would definitely upset the balance of power that now exists between Russia and the U. S.
