True, the Moscow line has been hardening toward the United States, but not sufficiently to indicate a major change in the coexistence policy. - o- --MEDICARE SNAFU-When medicare becomes effective July 1, you can look for new fireworks. Top officials of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare are almost panic-stricken for fear they won't be able to handle medicare patients. The reason is that an amazing number of hospitals will not have qualified to serve these patients, either because of poor sanitation or their refusal to comply with civil rights requirements. In Mississippi, for example, only 2 1/2 per cent of all the hospitals in the state applied for the medicare program. Most of the others either refuse to accept Negro patients at all, or to do so without segregation. In Texas, only 300 out of 700 hospitals will be listed for medi- care treatment. The Surgeon General, Dr. William Stewart, appears complacent about the whole problem. But with only several weeks to go before medicare goes into effect, it now appears the program will be stymied in many areas of the country. And if that happens , all the storms we already have witnessed may seem mild by comparison. - o —POLITICAL CAMPAIGN— FUNDS- President Johnson has sent Congress a bill aimed at regulating one cause of Doddism big campaign funds. An important section of the bill was added after the Dodd scandals hit the front pages - the section requiring members of Congress to report all gifts and outside income over $100 received by them, or any member of their family. Inside the Justice Department this has become known as the "Dodd Section." The bill, of course, is not as it should be - but a tough bill probably would never get through Congress. I'ts simply a fact of political life that costs of campaigning now are so high that ordinary men can't afford to run for office unless they can raise large funds for expenses such as TV time. ,;,Thiis the whole system of political contributions needs to be overhauled, perhaps requiring TV and radion stations to contribute free time to candidates as a public service. Meanwhile, there are other cases of possible Doddism that Congress ought to investigate. For example, Congressman Harold Cooley of North Carolina last, year used his chairmanship of the House Agriculture Committee to pass a sugar bill which will cost American housewives an .extra $700 million'a year and will pay out millions from HISJORrS SCRAPBOOK DATES AND EVENTS FROM YESTERYEARS flly Dl"OW Pta WASHINGTON - President Johnson is now injecting his own political know-how into the chaotic Buddhist vs. Catholic military confrontation in South Viet Nam. In the past, LBJ has personally directed all of the military bom- ing . of North Viet Nam. No bombing mission took off without . his okay of the targets. This was because he did not •always trust military judgment on.bombing targets in the north. Regarding the South Viet Nam political situation, however, the President kept hands off; left this •to Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge. Now he has reversed this, is giving as much attention to the political chaos as he did to military targets. He supported Lodge in his earlier advice to crack down hard with military force against Ky's opposition. But simultaneously he urged that Ky bring the Buddhists and key civilian leaders into his administration. This technique of the carrot and the stick now is making some progress, but hasn't diminished anti- American sentiment in the big cities, nor is it likely to. Military reports received at ,!the White House continue to be 'favorable, The United States lias put such overwhelming numbers of troops into the field that the Viet Cong has no choice but to avoid head-on battles, However, the more troops the United States puts in, the greater the civilian anti-American sentiment.

The American Army embarked for Cuba, June 12, 1898. Schmelllng knocked out Loute, June 12, 1936. The U. 8. Department of Labor was established, June 13, 1888. Hawaii was organized as a territory, June 14,1900. President Roosevelt froze German and Italian funds, June 14, 1941. The Magna Charter, the Great Charter, was issued by King John of England, June 15, 1215. The first robot bomb struck London, June 16, 1944. in sugar benefits to countries picked by Cooley, though some of them previously did not export sugar. In writing the bill he listened to the sugar lobbyists, and they in turn collected over $350,000 in lobbying fees for persuading him to favor their clients. Later a testimonial dinner was arranged for Cooley. The sugar lobbyists, of course, contributed liberally. - o - —SCORE FOR JACKIE— The horse set of New Jersey isn't too happy about having Jackie Kennedy ride with them. They say Mrs. Kennedy and her children attract too many photographers and that this turns the Saturday hunts into publicity shows. But when the New Jersey Socialites barred the widow of the late President from hunting on Saturdays, Mrs. Gil Slater got a call from the former Secretary of the Treasury, Douglas Dillon, stating that if they barred Mrs. Kennedy from riding, the club could not hunt over his land. Since Dillon owns the choicest hunting area in northern New Jersey, that ended that. Jackie can now ride to the hounds on Saturdays. - o - —TAX LOOPHOLES— President Johnson could finance the Viet Nam war with- outh raising taxes, simply by closing the oil loopholes and compelling the oil companies to pay their fair share of the tax load. This is the view of Treasury experts, who estimate that the. 20 top oil companies alone escaped paying $6 billion in taxes during the 1955-65 period. The taxes these 20 companies managed to avoid would finance the entire Viet Nam war for eight months. Of course, every cent the oil companies do not pay must be made .up by less privileged taxpayers. Even the smallest business and the lowest wage earners, for example, pay 20 percent of their income in federal taxes. Yet the 22 largest oil companies paid only 4 percent of their income to the U.S. Treasury in 1964, according to the latest available figures. Though the oil companies try to suppress information about their tax payments, this column has learned that five oil companies - Atlantic, Marathon, Richfield, Sinclair and Sunray paid no federal taxes at all In 1964. - o —OIL DEPLETION ALLOWANCE— The most glaring tax loophole is the 27 1/2 percent depletion allowance, which gives oil companies a tax rebate on the cost of every barrel taken from the ground. The argument is that the owner should be permitted to write off the declining value of his well. However, he can go on taking the deduction long after he has recovered his Investment. The figures show that, for the average oil well, the owner deducts from his taxes 19 times the original cost. Other "golden gimmicks" have been less advertised. George E. Allen, the oil-rich pal of Presidents, once confided that the intangible drilling and development allowances were even more lucrative than the depletion allowances. "Almost no one outside the industry knows about the intangible allowances," chuckled Allen. While other corporations are socked the full 52 percent corporate tax rate, oil companies end up paying a few percentage points. In 1963 it rose to 5 percent. But in 1962, as in 1964, the rate for the top 22 companies was an average 4 percent.

S. intelligence estimates have stated that the Chinese would not enter the Viet Nam war and could not be provoked into doing so. But the latest estimate placed on President Johnson's desk is to the contrary. He has. been warned that the Chinese communist position is changing and' that China could intervene, This reversal is based upon domestic troubles inside China plus loss of face from Chinese setbacks in Indonesia and elsewhere in Asia, plus all of Africa except for Guinea, and Cuba. ' Pts believed by. our intelligence experts that the Chinese leaders are becoming desperate and might look for an involvement with the United States to solidify their position'at home.
