WASHINGTON Merry-Co-Round WASHINGTON - Despite the stralh of the Viet Nam war, there are definite signs that U.S. - Soviet relations are improving. This means more than may appear on the surface: Among other things it holds out hope that Moscow will increase its pressure on Hanoi for peace talks. Moscow's switch is not unselfish. The Kremlin leaders not only recognize the danger to Russia in any spread of the war, but they are alarmed over Red China and appear ready for DREW PEARSON an open break. These are the signs: 1. Ambassador to Russia Foy Kohler, returning to this country to become Deputy Under Secretary of State, has reported confidentially that U. S. - -Soviet relations definitely are not as bad as propaganda statements have made them appear. 2. The appointment of Llewellyn Thompson to return to Moscow as a replacement for Kohler Indicates the White House is convinced a turn for the bet- ter is at hand. Thompson is not only our top Soviet expert, but was a fairly close friend of Nikita Khrushchev in the peaceful co-existence days, and his presence in Moscow may accelerate the resumption of that policy by the Kremlin. 3. The President's dinner meeting with Foreign Minister Gromyko of Russia Monday night not only was a further move toward improved relations, but follows others: the resumption of talks on direct air flights between Moscow and New York; the U. S. refusal to give Chancellor Erhard of Germany any concessions on nuclear weapons control; the Russian release of Peace Corpsman Thomas Dawson. These were-not happenstance, on either side. After his Idaho speech in August in which he called on Russia to help preserve world peace, the President asked his advisers for suggestions on how to convince the Russians he had THERE'S NO BUSINESS LIKE SHOW BUSINESS ORIGINAL BROADWAY CAST RECORDINGS Oct. 16 — "Skyscraper" starring Julie Harris Oct. 23 — "The Unsinkable Molly Brown" starring Tammy Grimes Oct. 30 — "Mame" starring Angela Lansbury Reserve Your Front Row Center Seat SUNDAYS 12:15-1:00 P.M.

They made suggestions he has followed: and Russia has shown signs of reciprocating. 4. The Russian government has flatly refused to allow Russian pilots to fly MIG fighters sent to North Viet Nam against U. S. planes. 5. The Kremlin has quietly sounded out leaders of Poland, Czechoslovakia, Romania and Hungary over a new communist summit conference that would denounce Red China. The response was favorable. This was another Khrushchev plan which the Kremlin suspended but now appears ready to adopt. Thus though the President told reporters last week that nothing had happened in the past few weeks to encourage hopes for peace, his statement did not rule out the possibility that events now developing may do so. - o - --GLUMGROMYKO-- Russia's Gromyko has a reputation of being one of the glummest diplomats in the business and not very handsome. Once Mrs. Jackie Kennedy confided to her late husband after meeting Gromyko, "He looks like a nice man. He doesn't look so ominous." President Kennedy told this to Khrushchev in Vienna, adding, "This will probably ruin him in the Kremlin." To this Khrushchev replied, "Some people don't agree with Mrs. Kennedy. There are some people who say he looks like Nixon." - o - --HIGHER TAXES-The House Ways and Means Committee, despite the recent denial of Chairman Wilbur Mills of any knowledge of tax increase proposals, is going to start work on them. The committee has planned informal discussions this month with top administration experts on the economic situation and what the need for higher taxes may be. After next month's elections, the committee is scheduled to get down to cases with formal hearings. Since these will take some weeks, and since the picture won't begin to clarify until after Congress has completed work on appropriations bills, this means a tax bill probably won't be ready "before the new Congress convenes in January. Inside word is that LBJ will seek only a small and temporary tax increase, perhaps simply adding 5 per cent to the income tax paid by both individuals and corporations. - o - — CONFLICT OF INTEREST — This column has an affidavit signed by Carolyn B. Andrews of Portsmouth, Ohio, former employee of Standard Oil of Ohio, stating under oath that four employees of the company worked more than two days on company time mailing campaign literature on behalf of Rep. William Harsha, Republican of Portsmouth. Harsha is the same Ohio Congressman whose law firm represents Phillips Petroleum and Ashland Oil, which do not want foreign fuel competition. He himself was active in Congress in limiting imports of residual oil. This is not only a conflict of interest on the part of Rep. Harsha; it's highly improper for any corporation to contribute directly or indirectly to a Congressman's campaign. - o - -- YORTHY DUCKING OUT — One of the big questions in the California contest between Gov. Pat Brown and right-winger Ronald Reagan is who will get the support of Mayor Sam Yorty of Los Angeles. Yorty himself is a conservative who made it clear in the Watts riots that he stands closer to Reagan than to Brown, in the Democratic primary. And it's no secret that Yorty would like to run for the Senate in 19 68 against liberal Republican Tom Kuchel. Right-wing Republicans have tempted Yorty by promising to support him against Kuchel if he will support Reagan now. However, Reagan Republicans almost certainly would try to defeat Kuchel in the Republican primary in 1968. If they could do so with one of their right- wing candidates, Yorty would never get their support in the showdown. At the same time, Yorty couldn't win his own Democratic primary two years from now should he endorse Reagan, and without support from either party he couldn't hope to reach the Senate. It looks as if Yorty will solve his dilemma in this way: On October 23 he will cast an absentee ballot and then accompany the Los Angeles Dodgers to Japan. He thus will bo out of the country before the election and "unable* to compaign for either Brown or Reagan. But having added the odds against getting effective Republican backing - don't be surprised if he announces he cast his absentee ballot for Pat Brown. - o - — NEW ENVOY TO MOSCOW -President Johnson has picked one of the State Department's top experts on Soviet affairs, Llewellyn Thompson, to be the new ambassador to Moscow. Thompson previously served five years in Moscow as ambassador, at which time he was one of the few Americans in whom Nikita Khrushchev confided. On occasion Thompson spent weekends at Khrushchev's dacha. Thompson was also one of only two foreign service officers who did not resign to take advantage of a retirement bonus. Instead he remained on at some financial sacrifice to himself. During the past five years, Thompson has served as ambassador at large for the State Department and the chief adviser on relations with the communist countries. Thompson began studying the Russian language when he was a young career officer and has been called upon to sit in on some of the important sessions between Khrushchev and American leaders. He served in this capacity for President Kennedy during the meeting with Khrushchev in Vienna. - o - - - AND U. S. FOOTS BILL — When SNCC's Stokely Carmichael, the young West Indian rabble-rouser who has inspired such a white backlash against Negroes, wants to look particularly impressive, he wears a flowing African robe given him by President Sekou Toure of Guinea. Behind this lies a significant story. Two years ago, Sekou Toure invited various SNCC and CORE leaders to Guinea to take lessons on black nationalism. The leaders included James Farmer of CORE, John Lewis of SNCC and Stokely Carmlchael. Guinea is the most pro-communist of the African states, most of which ; have now 1 revolted' against the advisers sent out from Peking. Guinea, however, has 900 Chinese advisers, and .President Sekou : Toure is constantly echoing the Peking line in attacking the United States. Of the American Negroes who went to Guinea at Sekou Toure's expense, only one, Carmichael, fell for the radical line. However, Carmichael seems to be in good company. For the United States government has been subsidising Sekou Toure to the tune of about $30 million a year in foreign aid. Inside explanation is the desire to protect the bauxite concession of Harvey Aluminum in Guinea, one of the largest in the world. Harvey Aluminum has led a charmed political life. One member of its family, Mrs. Carmen Wars- chaw, has long been Democratic State Chairman for Southern California, while Harvey's top attorney is Tom Dewey, Former GOP candidate for President.
