never accorded anyone recent Senate history, - o - else In "ftRIBAU 500" NOW SHOWING AT THE ALOONA THEATRE By Draw WASHINGTON * The Senate Ethics Committee this week began its Investigation of the strange relationship between Sen. Dodd of Connecticut and Gen. Mitts Klein, a registered West German agent, with a key witness "unavailable." On the eve of the hearings Gen. Klein took off for West Germany, leaving word that he wouldn't be back until mid-July- after the current hearings are over. The reason Is that Sen. Dodd*s friends urged him to keep Gen. Klein off the witness stand because he has been such a poor witness In the past. Meanwhile, the committee changed traditional Senate rules to permit Sen, Dodd and his counsel to cross-examine witnesses, a very special privilege PYREX WARE JUICE SHAKER One-quart juicer for mixing and serving hot or cold drinks, juices, shakes.

The point was that he was in the hospital recovering from a drunk when he should have been in the House handling the $18 billion armed services bill which had to be passed. In the executive branch of the government, an alcoholic is classed as a security risk, and Congress is the first to scream if a diplomat, or any member of any other executive department, gets drunk. Mendel Rivers, as chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, is privy to many of our defense secrets; also is a member of the Congressional Watchdog Committee which 'supervises the highly secret Central Intelligence Agency. Yet his fellow Congressmen obviously feel that, in his case, getting drunk is all right. This column still holds that it is a matter of public Interest and concern when any man serving the public incapacitates himself with alcohol so as to threaten the security of others - whether he be a locomotive engineer, an airline pilot, or the chairman of the House Armed Services Committee. - o - —VIET NAM AND U. S. ELECTIONS — President Johnson is so cori-^ fldent an election in South Viet Nam will solve political problems there as well as in the U. S. that he is insisting Premier Ky go ahead with elections in September. He believes this not only will bring stability to South Viet Nam but will help the Democrats in our Congressional elections in November. This is the real reason he is so adamant that Ky permit a September election two months before American voters go to the polls. . Ip making, .this, demand, the President' has overruled Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge, who has warned that South Viet Nam won't be ready for an election by September. The President's concern over Democratic chances in November has a solid basis. Private polls taken in 34 states show the Democrats may lose between 50 and 70 House seats. This would mean the return of voting control to the coalition of conservative Southern Democrats and Republicans which dominated the House until the 1964 election, when LBJ brought 50 new Democratic Congressmen on his coat-. tails to Washington. - o - -LITTLE MEDIC ARE IN SOUTH- Despite the meeting of doctors and hospital authorities which President Johnson called at the White House " last week, most hospitals In Mississippi and Alabama are still being slow to sign up for the treatment of elderly people after medicare goes into effect July 1. It looks as if there will be wide areas all through the South where older people will not be able to take advantage of the free hospital service to which they are entitled under medi- care. Many Southern hospitals have been listening to Sen. Jim Eastland of Mississippi In his private prediction that the administration finally will relax its demand for integrated hospitals, though the President last week made it clear that hospitals must desegregate before they will be able to get federal funds. - o - —GOLDBERG AT BRANDEIS— Ambassador Arthur Goldberg had a very interesting breakfast with graduating seniors at Bran- dels University before he delivered the baccalaureate sermon. Goldberg had been warned that the students were planning to demonstrate against him in a protest against U. S. policy in Viet Nam. Goldberg actually is strongly for peace- and argues vigorously for it inside the Johnson Cabinet, but the public doesn't realize this, because he can't differ with the President publicly. But at breakfast with the Bran- dels students, Goldberg was so reasonable in defending their right to question and also their obligation to learn all sides of POST-WRECK-MORTEM — Frankie Avalon, right, Annette Funicello and Fabian discuss Accident while spectators gather around in scene from American International's stock car racing thriller, "Fireball 500," tonight at the Algona Theatre. the Viet Nam story that the students did not walk out on him. Some of them stood up for five minutes In a silent demonstration, but they then sat down and listened. - o - - CHANCES OF AIRLINE STRIKE— The cooling-off period ordered by the White House for the threatened airline strike by the International Machinists Union ends July 6. After that date, the union will be able to tie up almost every major airline in the nation, seriously crippling the economy and affecting the conduct of the war in Viet Nam. A Presidential panel headed by Sen. Wayne Morse of Oregon brought in recommendations for settling the strike which the union characterized as "19th century thinking," and obviously was not willing to accept. But It appears that the airlines are willing to pay more than the panel recommended. Tipoff was the fact that they were willing to let the union attorney speak" for both sides in addressing the Presidential board when it finished Its work. Reason for this, in part at least, is the fact that the Civil Aeronautics 'Board has been planning to cut airline fares due to the record profits they'have . been making. And since the airlines thus face a cut in profits anyway, they're willing to allocate the money to labor instead of the public to avoid a strike. The administration, still try- Ing' ' td; Jp;d the line 1 on' wages and prices, is unhappy over the squeeze, but it probably will yield enough to the unions to prevent a strike. - o - —EFFICIENT GOVERNOR'S LADY— Mrs. Richard Hughes, wife of the governor of New Jersey, is taking her ten children - and her husband - on a trip across the United States this summer. She has figured very carefully how she will take ten children on a modest family budget. Mrs. Hughes points out that many motels along the way have two double beds in each room, and she can put in two cots. That takes care of six children in one room. She and her husband can sleep in the second room with four children. "And I don't want a state trooper along with me," says Mrs. Hughes. "If the governor wants to sweet talk me while we're driving, I don't want anyone listening in." ^ - o - --ANOTHER U. S. PROBLEM- The question of whether to continue feeding President Gamel Abdel Nasser and the United Arab Republic is being debated secretly inside the State Department and is likely to break into the open soon on Capitol Hill. A decision must be made within the next ten days, since Nasser's food agreement with the United States expires June 30. Most people don't realize it, but the United States has sent food to Egypt valued at almost double what Russia has contributed to the more widely publicized Aswan Dam. The decision to continue sending food involves much more than merely feeding people. Basically it involves the question of whether or not Nasser is to continue as the head of the so- called United Arab Republic, now no longer united with Syria or any other Arab state. Diplomatic cables from the Near East report that Nasser is in a precarious political position, and that failure to get American grain would cause street riots, probable rebellion by the army, and his downfall. The Egyptian army, already smarting over having been led into a military impasse in Yemen, is reported fed up with the debonair colonel who has ruled Egypt since King Farouk was kicked out in 1952. If s even reported that one reason Nasser does not bring his 60,000-man army back from Yemen is the fear that these troops would revolt against him. - o —MERRY-GO-ROUND— The President isn't too happy about Lynda Bird's choice of boy friends. He refers to George Hamilton as "Charley" Hamilton, is trked over his draft record. Actually, Hamilton has been deferred six years, long before he met Lynda. When he got his deferment he was not affluent. Now he Is making $125,000 a year. . . .No one has any explanation for the fact that Hamilton's trip to entertain the troops in Viet Nam was postponed - or. cancelled. But it was a smart move. GI reaction in Viet Nam would have ranged from vigorous to violent against the President's family. THURSDAY and FRIDAY ."Fireball 500" - 7:00 - 9:05. SATURDAY - "Fireball 500"1:30 - 7:00 - 9:05.
