WASHINGTON - President Johnson has ordered a two- pronged offensive in Viet Nam. He has directed his top advisors to come up with ideas for a new peace offensive and at the same time has ordered the Joint Chiefs of Staff to go ahead with a major new military offensive. Another 100,000 U. S. troops will be poured into Viet Nam for the military offensive, which is intended to open highways and railroads now under Viet Cong control. The Johnson peace offensive was spurred partly by criticism from Sen. Bobby Kennedy of New York that the President has tried to be neither a hawk nor a dove, but rather like the American eagle on the Presidential seal which holds an olive branch in the left claw and a sheaf of arrows in U e r ?ht. Harry Truman had the eagle's head turned toward the olive branch up until the Korean War and Johnson, though not always succeeding, is trying to turn it that way again. Incidentally, President Johnson tells friends that when he is attacked by the press he looks THURSDAY FRIDAY - SATURDAY JUNE 16 - 17 - 18 STARLITE KOOKY / TheHorror'is Bbwlarious I ** i L _ - - — __, - - * TECHNICOLOR - M1 ,.JOAN STALEY-LIAM REDMOND DICK SARGENT -• ' 'PLUS THIS 2ND GREAT;;f=IL^ ' .,":,^,"^ , & Two Mighty Annies Trampled Its Valley...

McNAMARA— Students and faculty members who walked out on Secretary of Defense McNamara at New York University apparently did not know that McNamara has become one of the chief doves Inside the Johnson Cabinet. At the start of the Viet Nam war, McNamara accepted military recommendations at face value and thought the war could be ended fairly soon. He has now realized his mistake and favors peace talks, even with the Red Chinese. McNamara has gone further than any other Cabinet member, except U. N. Ambassador Arthur Goldberg, in urging a change of policy toward Red China and the ending of our diplomatic boycott of the Chinese. This probably makeshimmore for peace than some of the students and faculty members who walked out on him at New York University. - o - —COST OF WAR- President Johnson has been boasting about the unexpected tax revenue which may make it possible for him to balance his cash budget for the fiscal year ending June 30. In other words, the President now expects to take in as much money as he has spent, not counting future commitments-a phenomenal accomplishment in wartime. What he hasn't mentioned, however, is that the Viet Nam war costs have now increased to double the estimates of a few months ago. This means that, for the next fiscal year he will need twice as much money for the Viet Nam war as he has requested. The war is now costing the taxpayers a staggering $65 million a day.

He referred to Milton Shapp, who has just won the Democratic nomination for governor. Former Goy. Lawrence, who was the first Catholic ever elected governor of Pennsylvania, replied that it was quite possible for a. Jew to be elected and that he thought Shapp had a chance. Lawrence pointed out that Shapp had carried many Catholic districts in Pennsylvania, even though running against a Catholic, Robert Casey, and that straw vote at Girls' Cathedral High School in Pittsburgh, a Catholic school, showed Shapp, a Jew, carrying it overwhelmingly against Casey, the Catholic. - o - - CALIFORNIA POLITICKING— As Governor Pat Brown of California remarked after he had won renominatlon for a third term in the Democratic primary, he faces the hardest fight of his career against GOP nominee Ronald Reagan. What Brown is concerned about is not a clean choice between his own policies and those of the right-wing Reagan, but a complex of political currents and crosscurrents that will involve both Democrats and Republicans. To start with, it was Democratic strategy to let Reagan win the Republican nomination. And this may have been a mistake, since Reagan won more votes than Brown. Reagan's margin was due partly to his own popularity as a movie-TV personality, partly to the sordid record of his GOP opponent, ex-Mayor George Christopher of San Francisco. But part of U also was due to the fact that Brown was running for a third term, and that Democratic Mayor Sara Yorty of Los Angeles and Assembly Speaker Jesse Unruh were out to knife him. Still another element against Brown was the so-called racial backlash: Many California whites have been incensed by Negro violence in Watts and the threats of more riots; they feel also that civil rights are being overplayed, that the courts have gone too far in rejecting the housing restrictions which had been approved in a referendum, that militant Negro leaders are demanding too much and that white leaders are being too servile in trying to meet those demands. Reagan catered to the anti- Negro bias, and Mayor Yorty of Los Angeles has been severely criticized for his unsympathetic attitude toward the Negroes in the Watts area. The thing to watch for in California now is a Reagan-Yorty deal, by which Yorty would throw his support to Reagan for governor this year in return for Reagan's backing Yorty against moderate Republican Sen. Tom Kuchel ofCaliforniainl968. Kuchel has refused to support right-wing extremism in California, and has been warned that if he doesn't get in line, he will have trouble winning renomin- ation. Kuchel was first appointed to the U. S. Senate by then Governor Earl Warren, now Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, in 1952, and has won the two Senatorial elections since then. But his third try, in 1968, could be a different story. - o —MEREDITH SHOOTING AFTERMATH- One of the many regrettable facts in the shooting of James Meredith in Mississippi is that it may set back the astonishing progress that state was making in breaking down racial discrimination, i Washington officials have found Gov. Paul Johnson far more broadminded and cooperative on civil rights than the governors of Alabama and Louisiana. Schools were being integrated, housing projects started, and an intensive program had been set up to train unskilled Negroes to fill skilled jobs - all with Gov. Johnson's full support. While it's true that the man who shot Meredith had come from Tennessee to do it, the tension created in Mississippi may undo much of the progress that has been made. - o - —BEAUTY DANGERS— Rep. Leonor Sullivan, the St. Louis Democrat, wants to tighten the food and drug laws to prevent women from being used as guinea pigs by manufacturers who need to test the safety of various beauty aids. Mrs. Sullivan claims that some hair coloring, for example, contain harmful coal tar products that could cause partial or total baldness to users. She also takes a dim view of some so-called "magic skin tighteners' and artificial fingernails that do harm to women's natural nails. The beauticians aren't going to be too happy when Mrs. Sullivan gets through with a wide range of beauty products. —RACE TO THE MOON— The Surveyor project to explore the moon has been beset by all sorts of snafus. But, with last week's soft landing, at long last it seems to be in high gear. Previously the space agency's governing board had described the Ranger, which preceded the Surveyor as a "shoot and hope" program, while Congress had criticized the project in blistering terms. However, in early May, American scientists visiting the International Atomic Center in Vienna conferred with Russian scientists, who gave them a report on Luna IX, the Russian capsule which made a soft landing on the moon Feb. 3. There is only one copy of this report in existence in the United States, and it shows pictures of the Russian landing, accompanied by data regarding the pictures. Careful study of the Russian report has led American space scientists to the following conclusions : 1. Luna IX was less sophisticated than we originally believed. It took pictures of Uie moon's surface by ejecting cameras in a cacoon-like box away from the side of the capsule. 2. The capsule Itself was not as highly developed as ours. It was made of pliable material which could not carry a man. Evaluating these studies, space experts have concluded that the United States is not as far behind Russia as previously believed; on the contrary, Is probably ahead. As a result, some scientists believe it may be possible to place American astronauts on the moon's surface prior to 1970, the original goal. They are now aiming at 1968.
