WASHINGTON Meny-Go-Round PREW PEARS WASHINGTON - Although Bobby Kennedy unquestionably is expecting to be "called" to the Presidency some day, he clearly does not have the broad appeal of his late brother. He does make a hit with youngsters; he does make big promises to the underprivileged; he has capitalized on the dissatisfaction with the Vietnam war - but the emotional upheaval which swept him into a Senate seat in New York less than a year after his brother's death has receded, and with it a great deal of Bobby's political strength. In fact, one expert in New York politics claims that if Bobby Kennedy should be pitted against Republican Mayor John Lindsay of New York in the Senate race in 1970 - just two years away - Kennedy would be crushed. That estimate, of course, is based on Lindsay's current high popularity after his garbage battle with Gov. Nelson Rockefeller. The same expert opines that Kennedy forces are in bad shape all over the country, partly because Bobby has so skillfully knifed Sen. Eugene McCarthy in his efforts to crystallize dove sentiments in the Democratic party. McCarthy and his liberal backers clearly anticipated the New York Senator's support and clearly had reason to do so. But Bobby backed off after McCarthy went out on his limb, and has reaped a harvest of bitterness among liberals for doing so. According to this analysis, President Johnson no longer faces any serious threat of a divided convention, and will be re- nomiuated on the first ballot probably by acclamation. The battle between Rockefeller and Lindsay also is regarded as a plus for LBJ. The sharp split in the New York GOP is seen as almost guaranteeing that the President will carry the state, simply because the Lindsay and Rockefeller factions will hardly unite joyfully to work for Richard Nixon, now more than ever the GOP frontrunner for the nomination since Rockefeller has so alienated many supporters by his interference in the New York City garbage strike. Rocky's stance in that strike was diametrically opposed to GOP national policy in several particulars: it sought to centralize more power in Albany when the GOP is calling for more decentralization in government; it appeased a union striking illegally when conservative and business elements of the party are dead set against such appeasement. On top of all this, when the GOP is calling for cutbacks in government spending and reduced taxes, Rocky has tripled New York's budget since he was first elected in 1959, and has proposed huge programs that require still higher taxes. If he were transferred to Washington, according to this view, Rocky would make LBJ look like a piker - which is not exactly the idea the national GOP is projecting. In brief, according to one New York political expert, the New York governor may have worked a triple play he did not intend when he moved into the New York garbage strike; killing his own chances of getting the GOP nomination, guaranteeing Nixon's nomination, and the reelection of President Johnson. - o - - LAWYERS' MARCH ON WASHINGTON- The poor people's march on Washington being planned for April by Rev. Martin Luther King is causing great concern in the nation's capital. This is an election year, and law and order is an issue. Top legal and police officials are la continuous and anxious conference to try to keep the demonstration from becoming a disturbance which could hurt the civil rights cause as well as President Johnson's standing with civil rights groups. But the problem has caused one Washington wag to note that, under the new law, each demonstra-p tor arrested has the right to counsel which must be provided by the government if the demonstrator can't afford his own, If 3,000 should be arrested, that would mean 3,000 lawyers might be needed. So maybe we'll also have a simultaneous march on Washington of lawyers who need clients, - EUROPEANS FEAR U.S. CUTBACKS Seeds of recession, if not depression, will be sown abroad if the U. S. enacts a tax increase on top of restrictions on foreign investment, according to some European analysts. They think the combination of (1) the just-ending European eco. nomic slowdown, (2) British devaluation and austerity, and (3) U. S. determination to cool inflation while simultaneously cutting spending abroad will hurt Europe - and eventually the U. S. as well. And they say that if import curbs are added by the U.S., and Europe retaliates, theflowof international trade will be so badly hampered that a serious recession will result. The squeeze is already pinching President deGaulle so severely that there are some predictions he may be forced to devalue the franc by fall. The decline in capital available from the U. S. is one key factor; reduced tourist trade another; and anti-deGaulle boycotts of French products a third. - o - - WORLD POWER SHUFFLE Jack Anderson of the Washington Merry-Go-RoundisintheFar East, checking on what's behind the harsh developments in North Korea as well as in Vietnam and other areas. He has reported that we are woefully unprepared for any new hostilities in Korea; that the sit- uation in Vietnam is still very grim; that communist guerrillas are operating all over Southeast Asia, threatening to involve the United States in many small conflicts we have neither the men nor the materiel to handle. Much of this is generally interpreted simply as a communist effort to spread the United States as thin as possible in the Far East, essentially to ham string us as much as possible in Vietnam. But there also is a great possibility, according to some diplomatic experts, that all the Far East problems are subsidiary to more far-reaching developments elsewhere. The Russians, for example, are reported to have concluded a series of conferences with African nations which might lead to a complex of Soviet air bases which would strongly challenge U. S. power not only in the Middle East but far beyond. Expanded Soviet naval strength already has shown itself in the Mediterranean, so that for the first time since World War H our control of the Mediterranean is no longer unquestioned. Soviet naval vessels quickly appeared in strength off Korea when the Pueblo crisis arose. Russia now has so many modern warships that the U. S. Navy no longer is undisputed queen of the seas. The apparent significance is this: Russia foresaw the British pullback in the world east of Suez, prepared itself to move into the void quickly and effectively. The • United States did not, and therefore is now faced with a situation it cannot control. According to this view, war between the United States and Russia is not inevitable. What is inevitable is a revival of old- fashioned power politics in which the two remaining great naval powers will divide spheres of influence as in imperialist days, with Russia taking over much of the domain once ruled by Britain.
