Merry-Go-Round IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIHIIIIIHIIIIIUIIIHN WASHINGTON - You're going to see some strange politics during the fall elections. First you will see Franklin Di .Roosevelt, Jr., rolling up a record Liberal party vote in New York State for governor probably • over, a .million, this.., will almost certainly- re*elect- Gov. Nelson Rockefeller, now IbVr'man on the polls. FDR, Jr., 1$ sore at old guard Democrats, remembers how his father bucked Tammany to get" the' nomination fp'r.....governor, and figures it is now or never in his own political career. In Michigan you will see the of the Landrum-Griffin Aci, Sen. Robert Griffin, Republican, getting the tacit labor blessing of the Teamsters and the building trades unions despite labor's one-time bitterness against his legislative baby. Griffin is now running a couple of percentage points ahead of former' 'Assistant Secretary of State C-. Mennen Williams, who was elected governor of Michi- gan^lfc times the greatest record in, Michigan history. in Georgia this week, the Democratic primary will show whether Atlanta's recent race riots will hurt moderate candidates. If the backlash of white voters against Negroes is strong enough later in the November ele'ction, a Republican, Con- gfeSsman Bo Callaway, will be elected 'governor for the first time in a hundred years. The outcome of the Georgia voting 'may be a portent of how strong the white backlash will be r 'in Illinois and California. In the Illinois Senate race, veteran Sen. Paul Douglas, Democrat, appears to be slightly behind liberal Republican Chas. Percy, former Bell and Howell executive. In California Gov. Pat Brown, liberal'Democrat, .is 'picking up strength as against conservative Republican -nominee Ronald Reagan,. , Brown, hitherto the underdog candidate, is expected to come out on top. However, it's an election year where predictions aren't worth much at this time. Anything can happen. . .<•. •. - 6 - •- U. N.'S DIM FUTURE - Deep -pessimism pervades U. N. circles regarding its future, with the exit of Secretary General Thant, and delegates pin the blame QJJ the United States. They argue that we weakened the U. N. by barring Red China and that China's absence is the reason why the Viet Nam dispute cannot be conciliated by the U. N. today. There is also criticism over our refusal to follow U Thant's advice to declare a lony moratorium on bombing Drew Pearson North Viet Nam as a prelude to peace talks. The critics ignore the Russian and French failure to pay their share of U. N. peace-keeping expenses, which is one of the main reasons for U Thant's exit. No matter who is to blame, ther-eiis 'no; easytoway'iout pf-;the v impasse' lefty by" IL-.Thanf's re-.-, tirement. - o - ' ' " -GOVERNMENT '& '"" CIGARETTES- The federal government, is working at cross purposes regarding the nation's health. The Public Health Service has just awarded $2 million in grants for anti-smoking projects — chiefly to educate high school students regarding the risk of cancer if they smoke. Simultaneously the government is paying 10 times more than this for tobacco price supports. Furthermore, the government in July began paying 5 cents a pound to subsidize tobacco exports. As between the two - the government drive to stop smoking and the government drive to promote tobacco - there is no question about who is winning. Output last year was a staggering 534 billion cigarettes — a record. .- o - - HARDING AND JFK — Researchers have discovered an interesting statement made by a Republican President, Warren G. Harding, more than 40 years before a Democratic President, John F. Kennedy, made a similar statement. On Jan. 20,1961, Kennedy said, "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." Forty years before, President Harding called upon Americans "to do something for your country rather than have your country do something for you." - o - -SOUTH DAKOTA AND SOUTH VIET NAM - The secret is now out as to why Secretary of State Dean Rusk is going all the way to South Dakota September 15 to dedicate Big Bend Dam, though Rusk is an expert on South Viet Nam, not South Dakota'. Inside reason is that Karl Mundt, the indefatigable, sometimes irrespresiible Republican Senator from South Dakota, is a member of the'Senate Foreign Relations Committee and, as Mch, prevailed on Rusk to go. Mundt has supported Rusk's policies in South Viet Nam; now wants Rusk to support Republican politicians in South Dakota. Rusk's trip will do exactly that, for th. ; Republicans nave now maneuvered so as to monopolize the TV tima during Rusk's appearance, shoving Democrats to the sidelines. Dams and their dedications have played a big part in South Dakota policies. In 1960, just before the Los Angeles Democratic Convention, Sen. Lyndon Johnson came to South Dakota to turn the first shovel of dirt for building the same dam which will be completed and dedicated in September. At that time a Democratic governor, Ralph H*rseth, was in office, and the Eisenhower administration, then going out of office, refused to send any bigwigs because it was election year and they didn't want to help the Democrats with publicity. This time the situation is reversed, with a Democratic administration in Washington helping Republicans in South Dakota. - o - -HOUSING SLUMP - Secretary of the Treasury Fowler gave a recent report to the Cabinet on the housing slump. He warned behind closed doors that housing construction will continue to decline the rest of this year but predicted it would pick up in 1967. He is counting upon two bills the administration is pushing on Capitol Hill. One provides an extra $3 biUlon in money by authorizing the Federal National Mortgage Association to buy mortgages from private lenders. This would free the lenders to loan more money for housing. The other bill limits the interest that commercial banks can pay on time deposits. This is a technical measure which should stop the drain on savings and loan associations, thereby freeing them to finance more homes. Fowler assured the Cabinet that these measures should go a long way toward ending the housing freeze. - o - - GERMAN GUN FOR U. S. - Some Army officers are privately protesting the big $70 million contract which the Defense Department has awarded to the German firm, Rhein- metall, the public relations client of Gen. Julius Klein - close friend of Sen. Dodd. Rheinmetall, though it used slave labor in Nazi concentration camps during the war, had failed to'jpay reparations to the' Jewish victims of 'those camps. Despite this, Gen. Klein, a Jew, pushed the big gun order for Rheinmetall anyway and finally succeeded. It's now revealed by Hanson Baldwin, military expert of the New York Times, that the gun manufactured by Rheinmetall has defects which American military men criticize strongly. - o - - CAPITAL NEWSCAPSULES- While Gov. Pat Brown of California was breaking ground for a big new desalination plant on the West Coast to make fresh water out of salt water, the Israeli government accepted a new desalination plant, built by the Baldwin -Lima -Hamilton Corporation, which is producing one million gallons of freshwater per day. This is an exceptional achievement because the water of the Red Sea is 30 per cent saltier than normal ocean water. I predict another huge desalination plant will be built in Southern Israel soon. ... Madison Avenue has won a temporary triumph in the battle against the ZIP code. Direct-mail advertisers have been fighting against a Post Office decree that all advertising circulars, in order to be delivered, must include the ZIP code in the address. The direct- mail advertisers brought pressure on the Post Office through Congressional members of the House Post Office Committee. Finally postal authorities agreed to postpone the deadline for using the ZIP code on advertising circulars until 1967. ST.
