WASHINGTON Merrjr-Go-Rotuid them the film, "The Russians Are Coming." It's the story of a Russian submarine that puts in to a New England fishing village, first scares the populace to death, but then the Russians and New Englanders become bosom friends. The Russian delegation loved the movie. - o - from HMORY'S SCRAPBOOK DATES AND EVENTS FROM YESTERYEARS DREW PEARSON - SINO-RUSSIAN TENSION WASHINGTON - The German news magazine, Stern, has just published information that President Kennedy was suffering from Addison's disease; this was long rumored in the United States but always denied by Kennedy's staff. Stern magazine printed its revelation in connection with the debate over the Warren Report, asserting that the reason the autopsy report was withheld by the Kennedy family was because it showed the President was suffering from Addison's disease. The malady is incurable. It gives a sallow cast to the skin, also probably affected the President's back, but like diabetes it can be controlled. Its chief treatment is cortisone, which Kennedy took in continuing and large doses. Cortisone has side effects and was responsible for the puffiness of the President's face. Some doctors say it also gives a patient overconfidence. - o - - LBJ LEARNS HARD WAY The President has told intimates that he intends to get rid of John Bailey as Democratic • National Chairman as soon as he can find a good man to replace him. Actually, LBJ is more to blame than Bailey for the breakdown of Democratic political machinery. He stripped Bailey of his power, tried to run the committee from the White House through an aide, Marvin Watson. The election results have convinced Johnson of, his error, and he now wants to reorganize the committee from top to bottom. - o - - MORE HELP FOR HUSSEIN The United States has sent word to King Hussein of Jordan that it will fly men from the U. S. Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean to Jordan to bolster the king in case of a serious uprising against him. We are keeping in very close touch with the British, and either British or American troops will be flown in by airplanes from Sixth Fleet carriers in case King Hussein requests them. The key point of American-British strategy in the Near East is to keep King Hussein on his throne. Incidentally, the American Embassy has now advised the State Department that Premier Eshkol of Israel bowed to the Israeli army in making the border raid into Jordanian territory. It's believed that Foreign Minister Eban, who long served as Israeli Ambassador to the United States, did not know of the plan. Many Israeli leaders now concur with American diplomats that the raid was a very serious error, since it has seriously weakened King Hussein, long the most stabilizing factor in this troubled part of the Near East. - o - - "RUSSIANS ARE COMING" Ambassador Arthur Goldberg entertained the entire Russian delegation to the United Nations privately the other night showing U. S. Intelligence is trying to check a report that two million Chinese troops have been moved to the Siberian-Russian border. So far it has not been confirmed. If true, it would be very significant and would explain why the Russians are calling a world conference to discipline Red China, and have been pulling some of their crack units out of East Germany to send to Siberia. It's known there have been skirmishes across the border in Sinkiang province and that about 50,000 nomad Chinese have crossed over and taken refuge in Russian Kazakstan, and that the Chinese have been demanding that Russia give back the three eastern provinces of Siberia which were once taken away by the Czars. Thus any large troop movements to the Chinese-Soviet border would be very threatening. - o - - DEFENSE ORDERS FOR EAST- It has long been a sore point with Eastern Congressmen that so many heavy defense contracts have gone to the West Coast. Long Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania -all have excellent industrial facilities and 'have been clamoring for defense orders. However, Western Congressmen and Gov. Pat Brown of California have had great success in landing defense contracts for the West. But a change is coming. In the recent gubernatorial campaign in California, Ronald Reagan campaigned on the prin- Guam was captured by Japanese force*, December 9, 1941.

Surplus dealers are licking their chops with anticipation became the trucks are real bargains. Truck manufacturers would prefer to have them sold as surplus because this would mean orders for new trucks. The Army Quartermaster is usually Inclined not to worry much about repairs. It's too easy to get more funds okayed by Rep. Mendel Rivers, D-S.C., Chairman of the Armed Services Committee, now junketing abroad, who is happy to authorize all the funds the Pentagon wants. Thursday, Dee. 8, 1966 Algdna (Id.) Upper Des JIT—* ciple that California can get along without federal assistance. Now Defense chiefs in Washington have decided that Reagan and other Western Republicans who echoed his philosophy in Idaho, Utah and Colorado should be taken at their word. More defense contracts will now start going to such states as Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and, of course, Texas. - o - -POWELL'S FUTURE- Rep. Lionel Van Deerlin of Southern California, a Democrat, has announced he will move to prevent Adam Clayton Powell of Harlem, a fellow Democrat, from taking his seat when Congress reconvenes in January. This could easily be done. But the question of whether Powell is barred will depend upon a vote of the entire House. It will be recalled that two years ago, when there was a move to keep Mississippi Congressmen from taking their seats on charges they had been elected illegally, Congressional leaders rallied behind the Mississippi Congressmen and they were seated. The old ties of the Congressional Club, always Important, prevailed.. If Congress in January should vote to unseat Powell, a Negro, whereas it voted to seat the Mississippi Congressmen who were anti-Negro, It would leave a sour reaction in many parts of the nation. Even more important, Congressional leaders for the most part like Powell, despite his junketing and nose-thumbing at his critics. And they sympathize with him regarding the libel suit currently causing him so much trouble. Prediction: Despite the efforts of Congressman Van Deerlin, Adam Clayton Powell will be permitted to take his seat. - o - -SURPLUS TRUCKS Surplus dealers and truck manufacturers are eyeing the Pentagon for a .decision as to what will happen to more than two thousand five-ton trucks, costing about $20,000 apiece, which may either be dumped on the market- or repaired. The trucks are six-axle troop and cargo carriers built by White, Mack, Studebaker, and International - excellent trucks but now in need of overhauling and repairs. At first the Pentagon toyed with the idea of sending them out to a FRIDAY, DEC. 9th-9 a.m. to 9 p.
