- CANNON MYTH SHOT - Algeria, (la.) Upper Des Molne* Tueiday, Sept. 20, 1966 WASHINGTON- U Thant's decision to step down as Secretary- General of the United Nations came as no surprise. During a recent five-nation tour of Latin America, the able Burmese diplomat confided his intentions to Gustavo Diaz Ordaz, Mexico's chief executive, and to Chilean President Eduardo Frei. In a three-hour talk with Diaz, U Thant voiced even deeper bitterness against the United States than he expressed publicly when he announced his decision to give up the top U. N. post. The Johnson administration, he told the Mexican president, had repeatedly rebuffed his offers that If the U. S. would suspend its bombing of North Viet Nam he would have some chance of bringing about peace. Refusal to accept this condition, U Thant said, had finally convinced him that Washington strategists are determined to try for military victory at all costs; and that the ultimate cost, in his opinion, will be a worldwide atomic holocaust. - o - -CHINA VS. USSR- Former British Foreign Secretary Patrick Gordon Walker delivered a highly significant but little-noticed speech at the Tax Executives Institute in White Sulphur Springs, W. Va., the other Prow PMTMB day in which he pointed to the "rapid decline of communism" in Asia and noted that the United States and Russia have a lot In common in Southeast Asia. "The Soviet Union is highly embarrassed by the war In Viet Nam," said the former British foreign minister. "She wants to preserve the balance of prudence with America: She simply won't run the risks that China tauntingly urges upon her. At the same time Russia wants to maintain her position against China In the communist world. She must appear to be no less compromising against'American imperallsm' than China." The British Labor statesman also pointed out that China had immediate claims on both Russia and the United States. "From the United States China demands Formosa," he said. "She also wants back the colonies lost to Russia. In July, 1964, at a press conference Mao Tse- tung laid open claim to Vladivostok and Kamchatka and other Russian territories. "A couple of months later, Krushchev threatened to defend Russian soil with nuclear weapons; and he put in his own counterclaims against China, pointing out that Chinese emperors had also been imperalists and had seized Mongolia, Tibet and Sinkiang." i so ACRE FARM: FOR SALE HERMAN PUTZ ESTATE Legal description: SWK-15-97-28 (Portland Township) located 3!/2 mile East and 1 mile North of Burt, Iowa Possession: March 1, 1967 The Farm: Clarion and Webster Soil, drainage no problem, good improvements, an excellent productive farm See . W. NitchalS,Executor! Herman Putz Estate 2 East State Street Algona, Iowa That big plug for bean soup on the menu of the House restaurant in the Capitol probably is a plpedream, according to Jim Grilfln, the former minority pair clerk and a popular veteran of many years at the Capitol. Griffin, who was a page when another memorable figure, Rep. "Uncle Joe" Cannon of Illinois, was House Speaker years ago, says that Cannon never was overly fond of the soup, as the menu contends. The bill-of-fare states that Cannon, noting the deletion of the food item one day, roared: "Thunderation, I had my mouth set for bean soup . .. from now on, 1 want it on the menu every day!" Fiddlesticks, says Griffin. "Uncle Joe's favorite soup was onion, as I recall," he says. "I don't think that bean soup was on the menu in Cannon's day, or before." - o - - HEADLINES AND FOOTNOTES- Atomic spy Klaus Fuchs, who disappeared behind the Iron Curtain after completing his prison term in England, has been working on nuclear power in East Germany. He boasted in a communist paper recently that East Germany will be converted almost entirely to atomic power by the end of the 197Q/S ... The National Rifle Association, a tax- exempt organization forbidden from lobbying, has inspired a deluge of letters to Congress opposing gun control. Internal Revenue will find - if it investigates - that the rifle association has violated its tax-exempt status. - o - - CRANK PHONE CALLS- A bill to outlaw crank phone calls to Viet Nam servicemen and their families has been languishing in the House Judiciary Committee for 11 months. Meanwhile, the phone calls continue. Midnight callers have been especially harassing the mother of Navy Pilot Frederick Palmer, who led the first carrier-based air strike on Haiphong's oil dumps. U. S. troops in Viet Nam-have received so many complaints from home about the nasty phone calls that many now fear to give their names and addresses to newsmen covering the war. - o - - MERRY-GO-ROUND Southern leaders report that ex-Vice President Nixon has already lined up most of the delegates in the 14 Southern states to nominate him for President in 1968.
