WASHINGTON Menjr-Go-Ronnd •rfa^; b> DREW PEARSON WASHINGTON — Secretary of Defense McNamara didn't tell the whole story when he ackow- ledged that Russia is starting to build an antimissile defense system. Our spy satellites have also photographed more than 300 construction projects for new intercontinental missiles, which verifies other intelligence reports that Russia is doubling her missile striking force. Russia now has 300 intercontinental missiles ready to launch, plus another 150 submarine-fired missiles that could hit American cities from off our coasts. At present, the U.S. is believed to have a 10-to-l edge in missile strength, tyit secret intelligence reports warn that Russia hopes to pull ahead of us by 1970, Meanwhile, U.S. space scientists claim they have developed an anti-ballastics missile which could shoot down enemy missiles in space before they re-enter the atmosphere. This would reduce the danger to the population immediately below the explosion and vulnerable to the radiation resulting from the interception. The new anti-missile missile has not yet been proved, however. - o - — PITY THE TRANSLATORS — The No. 1 problem facing the United States on the day President Johnson was operated on was how to translate the word polyp in 38 different languages over the Voice of America. There just isn't any word for polyp in some of the remote dialects in Africa and Asia, yet the Voice of America still had to explain what was happening to the President's throat. So there were nearly 38 different descriptions given. - o - — REALISTIC RUMANIANS — Relations between the two most powerful communist nations in the world, Soviet.Russia and China, have been worsening rapidly. And last week Bulgaria called a conference for the purpose of considering whether Red China should be read out of the party. The one objector to such a move was Rumania. Some years ago this writer visited Rumania and talked to its top leaders, who were critical privately of China but pointed out that China was a nation of 700 million people who had to be reckoned with. You cannot isolate China, they said, On the other hand, the Russians distrust the radical Chinese brand of communism more than they do capitalism. Relations between Red China and Russia will continue strained. But in the end there probably will be no break in diplomatic relations. The advice of Rumania will prevail. - o --WEARY MAO-Even Mao Tse-tung apparently is losing patience with the Red Guard. They have been swarming into Peking to whoop it up for Mao, who has become a living Buddha to them, and they demand that they see him personally. This means that Mao shivers in the cold while they trudge past his reviewing stand. In the middle of one parade, Mao tried to slip away, but the paraders hutted until he came back. The next time he tried to make it easier on himself by lining up the Red Guards along the streets and driving past-them. But this lacked pomp, and they became rebellious. At the next rally, Mao was back in the reviewing stand, but he kept glancing at his watch as the Red Guards paraded endlessly before him. Diplomats report that Mao has suddenly halted the propaganda which had been calling for Red Guard pilgrimages to Peking. He wants them to stay home. - o- — ROMNEY FOR PRESIDENT — Offers to support Gov. George Romney of Michigan for the GOP Presidential nomination in 1968 have poured in from top Republicans in 25 states. Meanwhile, Romeny has held secret strategy sessions in Washington with an advisory committee that includes two former GOP chairmen — Leonard Hall and Sen. Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania. They were optimistic over Romney's chances of winning the nomination. - o —AH) FOR HATTI- It escaped the headlines, but Us Johnson administration has just taken an unusual step in Latin American relations. It has extended a'd to Haiti. The step if unusual because for nearly ten years the United States has boycotted Haiti because of Algona, (la.) Upper Det Molncs Tuesday, Nov. 29, 1966 the high-handed tactics oTPres- ident Francois Duvalier, the Michigan University-educated doctor, who has long ruled Haiti and refuses to hold new elections. This month, however, the Johnson administration has okayed a loan of $1,300,000 for Haiti, largely as a result of the devastation of Hurricane Inez, which tore up the eastern part of the island and left thousands homeless. The money is to go for reconstruction, education and for the training of veterinarians, all badly needed in Haiti, which has sunk to the lowest level of poverty of any country in the Western hemisphere. Hurrican Inez added to this poverty. Clint Murchison, the Texas industrialist, donated $50,000 worth of flour and food from his Haitian flour mill immediately after the hurricane. The change of policy by the Johnson administration was induced not only by the dire need in Haiti, but by policy changes on the part of President Duvalier. His reiauo.TS wiin we neignuor- ing Dominican Republic have vastly improved. The previous sour relations, it should be noted, were largely the fault of the late Dominican Dictator Rafael Trujillo, who had sent troops across the border into Haiti and staged at one time a bloody massacre of Hii- tians living adjasent to the border. With the new democratic regime in the Dominican Republic, however, President Duvalier has resumed diplomatic relations, sent a special envoy to the inauguration of President Bolaguer and is working with the Dominican Republic on measures to commit malaria, long a serious problem on the island. The United States has not changed its disapproval of President Duvalier's dictatorship. However, the President feels that people are more important thru dictators and he wants to encourage the present conciliatory trend in Haiti.
