Mftfry-Ge*Round IIHWHinil By Drew WASHINGTON — Sen. Thomas Dodd ol Connecticut did some smart political juggling to get a letter out of the Central Intelligence Agency seemingly supporting his claim that he went to West Germany not to save clients for Gen. Julius Klein but to investigate Soviet terror tactics. CIA Director Richard Helms, without commenting on Dodd's reasons for the trip, confirmed that the Senator did make some Inquiries of the CIA before and after going to Germany. Helm did not tell, however, about the smart political pressure Dodd used on CIA to get the letter. Dodd asked for the letter just as a Senate vote was coming up as to whether CIA should be investigated. Ordinarily, Dodd would have voted vigorously for Central Intelligence, which he has always championed. But this time he gave his Foreign Relations Committee proxy to Sen. Eugene McCarthy, the chief critic of CIA. This helped Dodd with McCarthy, who, just coincidentally of course, is a member of the Senate Ethics Committee which is investigating Dodd. But it also kept CIA guessing. When the final Senate vote came up on creating a watchdog committee to Investigate CIA, Dodd ducked out. He didn't vote. It was on the day of that critical vote, July 14, that Helms finally wrote the letter helping Dodd's alibi for his trip to Germany. That letter, incidentally, aroused the ire of Sen. John Stennis, D-Miss., whose Senate Ethics Committee already had clearly established that Doddhad gone to Germany on behalf of Gen. Julius Klein, not to investigate Soviet terror tactics as Dodd had claimed. It also was one of the reasons Helms was so quick to apologize when another of his letters critical of Sen. Fulbright of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee was published. The CIA director had found out the hard way that Senatorial anger might cost him his job. - o — DIXIECRAT REVIVAL — House liberals are discussing whether to take steps to block Congressman Colmer of Mississippi from taking over the powerful House Rules Committee next January. Colmer is just as obstructionist as the departing chairman, Rep. Howard Smith of Virginia, who was defeated in the Democratic primary. Colmer had told friends he intended to retire this year. Now that he is in line to head the Rules Committee, he has changed his mind. The liberals might try to bypass him on the grounds that he is not a loyal Democrat but has supported Republican candidates for President. But if the Democrats lose more than a dozen seats in the November election, they won't have the votes to block Colmer. In fact, Republican gains could restore the old Dixiecrat - Republican coalition that used to throttle all liberal legislation Inside the Rules Com mlttee. - o --FEWER SHIPS FOR HANOI-Stepped - up American bombings seem to have achieved one of their goals — scaring ships away from N. Vietnamese ports. Ships from the Free'World made 256 calls at North Vietnamese ports last year., The number dwindled to 49 during the first five months of 1966, 37 ships being British. In June, only five Free World ships stopped at North Vietnamese ports. And only one of these was British. - o -VIET CONG SUPPLIES-One of the big scandals of the war in Viet Nam is how from SCRAPBOOK DATES AND EVENTS PROM YESTERYEARS STRONG CHURCHES... Make Strong Communities "For it is better to suffer for doing right, if that should be God's will, than for doing wrong." — Peter 3:17 In this marvelous age we live in, machines do many things for us. Tasks once accomplished only by hours of strenuous toil and sweat on the part of many hands can now be done by a single machine in a matter of minutes. A machine can perform only a limited number of functions. In proper parlance, it must be "programmed" for each individual function it performs. If it is an "answer" machine, it cannot answer a particular question unless the answer has been "programmed" into the machine. In simple words, a machine cannot think. Man is different. Man has the powers of reason. As a consequence, he is forever in the role of a decision-maker. He has a built-in "mechanism" — his conscience —whichcon- cerns him with "right" and "wrong." The wise man learns through experience that making the "right" decision, though perhaps painful and unpopular, is always the proper thing to do.

The VCs extort the purchase money from oil companies, construction firms, rubber plantations and others in return for leaving their property alone in communist-controlled territory. The robber bands bribe watchmen to turn their backs while goods are smuggled right off American ships and the Saigon docks. But the Viet Cong lately have been getting bolder, swarming aboard ships, holding the crews at bay with guns, and systematically looting the holds. The Saigon police have done little so far to stop the raids. American authorities are now threatening to use our own forces to protect the cargoes. - o - -- PASSING PULLMANS To the younger generation, the announcement of the New York Central Railroad that it wants to eliminate long-distance passenger trains, which may be followed by other lines, may mean little, since the jet set knows little or nothing of what it has missed. But this writer, and many thousands of other railroad riders, will miss the 20th Century Limited, the Spirit of St. Louis, and the other famous trains with their long lines of Pullman cars rumbling through the night. In their day they not only were monuments to American luxury and American progress, they helped weld us into a nation. They carried movie stars and magnates from coast to coast, they hauled reporters to conventions and cataclysms, and American troops to ports of em- barkation. They made long- distance travel possible for vacationers, and permitted scattered families to reunite. From the Canadian border to the Gulf, from the Atlantic to the Pacific, they helped Americans to break the barriers of distance which for so long kept us provincial, with one region knowing little and caring little about another. But though we shall miss riding the railroads, it's comforting to know that the long freight trains are still rolling and thriving. And in salute to this sturdy backbone of American transportation, I would like to quote from a poem, "The Freight Song" -written by this columnist's late brother, Leon Pearson — "And here Is the life of a nation's trade, The execution of a bargain made; Scranton calls to Kalamazoo, 'I've got anthracite, what have you? 1 And Texas hollers, 'I'll send eggs If you'll take Michigan's table legs.' And Sacramento has a Bartlett pear To trade for Paterson underwear, The buttock of a bullock from a Western prairie Brings back a clock from Waterbury; California oranges, Pennsylvania rails, Mississippi cotton in burlap bales This is the lesson learned of the freights: Call this country the United States.
