Says Oswald Started Writing Anti-Red Book JT IS NO ONE NATION'S FAULT that the business of having ' and keeping allies in the West seems steadily more difficult. Holding together in tight formation a peaceful alliance of free countries is a hard matter at best Free peoples seldom get stirred by military concerns until they are in war or gravely threatened by it. If the urgency is great enough, even a utandoffish President Do Gaulle of France will commit his full support. He did so in the Cuban crisis of October 1962. But urgency Is not a mood easily maintained when the threat is less than extreme. We and our allies are all relatively prosperous. We do not believe war Is close at hand.

McCormack, a 71 - year - old Massachusetts Democrat, is next in line to the presidency should anything happen to Johnson before his term runs out on Jan. 20, 1965. reach a record $100 billion or more. A plan by House leaders to resort to a petition in an effort to pry the civil rights bill out of the Rules Committee is threatening the bill's shaky bipartisan backing.
