It probably will lust through Christmas, but not much longer. The Republicans are muled, Premier Khrushchev is as quiet as ii doll, and Fidel Castro must IK- playing a mandolin, he's so quiet. This isn't the first time a man in Johnson's spot — suddenly thrust into the White House on a president's deatli — was given a period of grace. It happened when Vice President Harry S. Truman took over in 1015, after President Franklin II. Roosevelt's death, j^, The tasks confronting Johnson t«J i£i sss tcs tac yja u« las j»1 since he became president are just a mild daily routine compared with what faced Truman.

For some months after he, moved into the White Mouse Truman practically had a honeymoon with the Republicans in Congress. That was In 1945, The! honeymoon didn't last long, the next year was a congresional i election year. -O- -ft- -0- The Republicans made their < attacks on Truman so convincing that in the 19-16 elections the voters gave them control of Congress. From then on few presidents ever had so much raucous trouble with Congress as Truman. Johnson, a shrewd manipulator, may do better. But it's not a good bet. Right now tlie congressional Republicans are laying off him. The Republican would - be presidential candidates have declared a moratorium on speechmaking until after Jan. t. But then they'll come bark, re-charged by their rest, and able to make more noise than over, particularly since Johnson, like Truman, has to encounter an election year, this time a presidential election, with himself no doubt a candidate. But Johnson, deliberately or not, has followed tlie Truman pattern in a general way up to this point. Tinman lost no time, after becoming president, in addressing a joint session of Congress to say he would continue Roosevelt's policies. Johnson did the same, to express his support for the late President Kennedy's programs. Truman asked the Roosevelt cabinet to stay although there were changes later. Johnson has asked the Kennedy Cabinet to stay. Truman paid the House of Representatives a surprise visit 19 days alter taking office, and had lunch there. Twice within the 19 days since he took office Johnson has visited the House, and had lunch there. Truman early favored ft tax- aid program. Right from the start Johnson favored Kennedy's tax-cut program. Within six months after Truman became president tlie Republicans began opening up on him. They seem to be getting restless already about their moratorium on Johnson. -o- •«- -o- One of them — Rep. Frank J. Becker of New York — complained Tuesday that "when Democrats call for a moratorium on politics, it's just to gag Republicans." His wasn't the only voice of complaint. So things ought to be getting back to normal around the first of the year. BONNIE Mr. and Mrs. Charles Casey of Downers Grove were called to Spring Garden by the illness of Mrs. Casey's father.
