WASHINGTON Ifarjr-Go-RMBd WASHINGTON - This week's off-year election was watched more closely around the world than any other in recent years, by the following groups for the following reasons: 1. The North Vietnamese, to see how much political support Johnson will lose and whether as a result they will then win the war - they think - without coining to the peace table. 2. Our NATO allies, who have been worried about the right wing, which they fear is a type of American fascism growing in this country. 3. The new African nations, who are interested in seeing whether Negroes and civil rights take a beating on Nov. 8. 4. The Russians and the small European communist nations, to see whether the right wing defeats Johnson's attempt to ease cold war tensions. - o- - THE HATE BOYS The Liberty Lobby and the extremist views of its founder, Willis Carto, that Jews are at the root of the nation's troubles and that all Negroes should be deported to Africa, might be kissed off as unimportant were it not for two things. First, the Lobby managed to deluge the nation with 20 million pieces of political literature dur- •ing the 1964 campaign, part of the "LBJ: A Political Biography" smear sheet against the President. Second, the Lobby has managed to attract the support of some retired admirals and generals plus campaign funds from some businessmen. The latter include Joseph H. Pew of the Sun Oil Company, who contributed $1,000 to the Lobby in 1963. Finally, the Lobby was able to entice four Senators into appearing on the Liberty Lobby's radio series, "Congress Calling." They were Senators Mundt, R-S. D., McClellan, D-Ark., Dirksen, R-fll., and Lausche, D~0hio. The series appeared in 1962, but was short-lived. The Senators eventually got wise to who was backing the program. - o- - LIBERTY ROLL CALL So that no other responsible Senators get sucked into supporting this hate organization, we think it important that the public know just who are its regular sponsors. Its chairman is Curtis Dall, former son- in-law of President Roosevelt* who has testified in the Senate regarding what he claims is the Zionist conspiracy. The 1965 board of policy for the Liberty Lobby is heavily sprinkled with retired admirals and generals, as follows: U. Gen. George E. Stratemeyer, former commander of the Air Force in Korea, now living in Winter Park, Fia. Lt. Gen. Sumter L. Lowry, N,G.U.S. Ret., of Tampa, Fla., who once ran for governor of Florida. Vice Admiral C. S. Freeman, U.S.N. Ret., New York City. Maj, Arch E. Roberts, U.S. A.R, Ret., of Fort Colling, Colo., author of Geo. Edwin Walker's BREW PEARSOM Pro-Blue program, which figured in the Army's investigation of the general. Lt. Col. Frederick A. Kibbe, U.S.A.R. Ret., founder of the Florida Minutemen and a candidate for Congress, now living in Fort Lauderdale. Brig. Gen. Richard M. Moran, U.S.A. Ret., Kerrville, Tex., organizer of "Tell'm" which merged with the Liberty Lobby in 1963. The board of policy also includes some staunch California backers of Ronald Reagan, such as Mrs. Gertrude Bale of Pasadena, former chairman of the Network of Patriotic Letter Writers; Adm. Charles M. Cooke, of Sonoma, former commander of the 7th Fleet; Karl Prussion of San Diego, the famous red-baiter; Vernon G. ,Linderman of Bakersfield; and Mrs, R. R. Sischo of Merced, president of the Citizens Action Committee. Others oh "the board of policy also are Joseph P. Kamp of Westport, Conn., founder of the Constitutional Educational League; Tyler Kent, who was imprisoned in the Tower of London during the war for having given information to the enemy while a member of the American Embassy staff; Louis Zoul of New York City, painter and pamphleteer; R. G. Johnson of Rogers, AT., author of "Patriots of Northern Arkansas." - o- - LBJ AND KREMLIN One of the chief campaigns of the Liberty Lobby recently has been to charge that President Johnson doesn't want to win the war in Viet Nam. "Liberty Lowdpwn," described as "a confidential Washington report supplied only to Liberty Lobby pledgers," recently charged that the United States was in "secret agreement" with the Kremlin. "It must be interjected that there is not the slightest equivocation on that point," stated Liberty Lowdown. "Our government does not want to win; audit is that fact that makes futile and foolish all concepts that any conservatives might have about the right way to win the war. The fact which cannot be dismissed is that the real enemy of the American people is in Wash- Algona, (la.) Upper DM Moin«* Tuesday, Nov. 8, 1966 ington, D. C., nowhere else. "Liberty Lobby has in its possession a report on the existence of a secret agreement between the Washington regime and the Kremlin which has never been ratified by the Senate and which indeed is not even known to the vast majority of officials in Washington, but which explains perfectly the reason why we cannot win. "Part of this deal is that the United States shall not allow Chiang Kai-shek to leave his island, and that is why the regime refuses to use his troops in Viet Nam." Note 1 - This column can report that actually the United States has approached Chiang Kai-shek, for the use of Chinese Nationalist troops in Viet Nam but was turned down. This was why President Johnson during his trip through the Far East studiously avoided stopping in Taipei to pay his respects to Chiang Kai-shek. Note 2 - When this column reported that the Senate testimony of Curtis Dall, chairman of the Liberty Lobby and former son-in-law of President Roosevelt, was anti-Semitic, Dall sued us for $2 million but lost out in the lower courts and all the way up to the Supreme Coyrt._ * A CLASSIFIED AD * •RILL GET FAST RESJULtft THE UPPER DBS MOINES invites you to send In your own local news items. 7/STOP|; DRAFTS EASY TO INSTALL Inside or Outside Complete-72" x 36" Plastic Sheet with molding and nails.
