WASHINGTON WASHING! ON-For lOOyears, the Democratic party has had two faces. In the North it has been the party of the underdog, the people. But In the South, It has been the party of the wealthy, the landowners who wrote the laws so that the poor - white and black alike-had little Voice in their government. For most of those 100 years, the Democrats also were the minority party, while the Republicans - wealthy and conservative - wrote the laws and governed the nation. When Franklin Roosevelt was elected, the Democratic party began to change. It became the majority party, by winning over many Republicans less conservative than the old-line GOP, by expanding the functions of the national government to include all the people, by awakening more interest in government by voters generally, by shattering the myth that only Republican businessmen knew how to cope with national problems, by lifting the nation out of the worst depression of this century to the highest prosperity ever known. Under the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, the national party has been chipping away at its Dixiecrat members and forcing them to accept changes, to moderate their views, to give up their stranglehold on Congress. And the people of the South have finally begun rejecting the oldtlmers such as Rep. Howard Smith'of Virginia, who refused to accept the inroads of progress. jiiw There are still many dlehards around, bat their numbers and power are decreasing, -o- -CHANGING TIDES- While the Democrats have thus made great strides In meeting modern needs, many Republicans have been taking the opposite course, Thus while the Massachusetts GOP put up a Negro, Edward Brooke, as candidate for governor, the party of Abraham Lincoln in the South put up segregationist "Bo" Caliaway for governor in Georgia. •--.'. And while New York Republicans backed Nelson Rockefeller for another term as governor, California Republicans picked Ronald Reagan, far out on the right wing. Thus, from Georgia to California, the Republicans have lined up with extremists and racists, tarring themselves with an anti- Semitic, anti-Negro, anti-foreigner coloration while Eastern Republicans have given Increasing support to candidates with liberal records such as Rockefeller, Case of New Jersey, Cooper of Kentucky. This means that the Republican party in effect has picked up the double face the Democrats are now dropping. It also means that the Republican party's hopes for regaining the national leadership will face very rough going. For the white backlash sentiment so evident in this year's campaigns and election, and so catered to by the GOP in many contests, may not be a major factor in future elections. But the stain'on the Republican party In the South and West may be. . o- LBJ*S HEALTH- For more than three years President Johnson has been working too hard, but not much can or will be ddne about it. He is awake and working in bed at 7 a. m., is at his desk by 9, never eats lunch until 2:30 or 3 p. m., and has dinner, when with his family, at 10 p. m. Unless there is a state dinner, he seldom leaves his desk until 9 p. m. No other President in this century has set such a pace, And, for a man who has suffered a massive coronary, this pace would seem almost suicidal, It apparently proves, however, the statement of his doctors that his heart wound has healed completely. His subsequent health problems have not been connected with the heart. By the norms of Presidential behavior, Johnson should now slow down/ .It's doubtful, however, that heVill do so. He is a man of compulsive work habits and he cannot change. He is also a man of great ambition. He is determined to carve a record which will stand alongside those of our greatest Presidents and he probably will continue to disregard matters of health and physical safety. It is quite conceivable that Lyndon Johnson will not serve out his full timr in office, but it is inconceivable that he will stop working so hard. . - o- - BIRCHERS INFILTRATING MORMONS The confidential flies of the John Birch Society contain some very significant letters showing a plot to Infiltrate the Mormon "The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; thy steadfast love, O Lord endures forever. Do not forsake the work of thy hands. " — Psaims 138:8 When your world is plunged into darkness arid despair, do not believe that God has deserted you. Raise your eyes, acknowledge that the purpose of your existence still remains and seek through faith the strength you need to . perservere. However dark .the night may be, it shall give way to . the sunrise . . . and you must look up to see a sky of blue.

GOT FAST church, whose members hold the balance of political power In Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, the Rocky Mountain states, and in Southern California. One interesting letter, written by Joe Ferguson, head of the John Birch Society in Arizona, is addressed to the Mormon Church's general authorities urging them to study and analyze the John Birch Society's philosophy because "the lives and souls of millions of people rest in your hands." The John Birch magazine, "American Opinion," carried the photograph of David 0. McKay, 93-year-old Prophet of the Mormon Church, on its cover in order to give the impression that he had endorsed the John Birch Society. For this the Birchites liad to apologize. However, the Birch Society's struggle to win over the Mormori church is continuing, led by former Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson. Benson is one of the Twelve Apostles governing the church. - o - - GRUESOME EXHIBIT BARRED - The reason why the autopsy photographs of the late President John F. Kennedy have not been made public is that some horror showman wanted to set up a traveling museum of gruesome exhibits regarding the President's assassination, showing the actual photographs of his wounds. Chief Justice Wavreni flatly refused, and consigned all his clothing, the exhibits, and the photographs to the Justice Department for safe-keeping. ; ' -o- • > • t - DIPLOMATIC GRAPEVINE''- VAN'S CAFI Junction 18 * 169 The American Embassy 1 'has 1 heard that the Russian Olympics coach, Gavril Korobkov, has been fired — for the same reason that American coaches often get the gate. His track and field stars haven't done too well lately .... U. N. Ambassador Arthur Goldberg has privately chided Afro- Asian delegates for not condemning the Chinese nuclear tests. He asked whether they would have been so quiet if the tests had been conducted by the United States .... It isn't being advertised, but two of Moscow's big three - Chairman Brezhnev and President Podgorny - have canceled plans to visit Paris next month. Only Premier Kosygin will keep the December date with President de Gaulle. The Chinese problem apparently will keep Brezhnev and Podgorny in Moscow .... President Diaz Ordaz of Mexico has informed the president of Honduras that it would be a great mistake to hold the Pan- American summit conference .next spring, that it should not be held until the Viet Nam war is over. Too many Latin American crowds would demonstrate against President Johnson and the meeting would be embarrassing, the president of Mexico said. - o- - AHEAD OF THE NEWS The arrest of 20 "Minutemen" by New York police this past Sunday on charges of conspiring to attack left-wing camps in the New York area bears out revelations about the Minutemen that Drew Pearson has been making for four years, We have warned that these self-appointed "grass roots guerrillas'! were actively planning to take the law into their own hands and be the judge, jury and executioner of any Americans who do not see things the way the Minutemen do. And detailed time and again how the Minutemen were collecting arsenals of machine guns, high- powered rifles, ammunition, and other military weapons of destruction, and were undergoing intensive training in their use, just as the New York police have now confirmed. We have also reported that some of the leaders of this right- wing extremist group have criminal records; and many of the leaders and members areiied in with the John Birch Society. For example, on Feb. 12,1962, writing about the California Minutemen, we reported they "claim that 800 of their members in Los Angeles own machine guns, and that each member has a rifle and 100 rounds of ammunition.' Further, we reported, the first of the California commanders,Troy Houghton, had been found to have a police record, including sex offenses, while another, William Colley of San Diego, had been arrested for indecent exposure. Several Cubs At Swea Get Their Awards SWEA-EAGLE - Cub Scout Pack 53 met Oct. 20 at the Swea City school. Cubmaster Rev. Julius Peterson was in charge.
