Now they work behind the scenes to give aid and comfort to his rival. They are the old Cold War lobby, or what Eisenhower called "the military-industrial complex." and include Senator Henry Jackson CD- Wash.), sometimes known as the "Senator from Boeing," and the hard-line wing of the AFL- CIO dominated by George Meany and his "foreign minister," Jay Lovestone, plus some of the more militant Zionists. This latter animosity is quite disturbing to a number of Jewish leaders and friends of F u 1 b r i g h t , as Bernard Rapoport. the Texas insurance e x e c u t i v e , a n d publicist Maurice Rosenblatt.

Bumper, plays the serene Governor attending to state business, with A SUMMER'S MEMORY Whatever happens, I will emember a talk with the Senator in his office one ummer afternoon after Presi- ent Johnson had stepped up he war. In his gentle voice with the loft Southern accent, he said. '1 am very pessimistic. A war s like a stream at flood. The ligher the level, the more is dragged in. We have been ·aising the level steadily. The Communist powers probably will feel required to respond by more supplies, perhaps volun- 'eers. and will be trapped in, he flood just as we are. I think it likely the war will spread in intensity and area." He shook his head. "I am very concerned about my country. I have never felt this way before. I wake up at night. Tight Curbs On Spending For Presidential Homes Approved WASHINGTON (AP) -- A the liming may unfairly dam- House committee has whelmingly approved a calling for tight future curbs on ray md a last minute TV blitz. Thi: is carefully designed to him off as handsome, young sincere, earnest. Tins is th modern con game, the 20lr century d e m a g o g u c r y combining (he lessons of the p s y c h o l o g y laboratory 01 human motivation with TV, ; good looking face, and an ai man's slogans. But Fulbright has assets t pull him through. When penpl have a chance to see him close hand, he is warm an has a quizzical good humor. He begins each campaign low in the polls and steadily pulls himself up. He is no matinee idol on TV, but he gives an impression or quiet confidence and fatherly responsibility. Fulbright is also well placed. A Foreign Relations subcommittee has been tearing the tinsel off the multi-national corporations and showing them as manipulators of governments and jacking up prices of needed consumer goods. He is a member of the Joint Economic Committee, one of the few barriers in Washington against runaway inflation. He is a member of the F i n a n c e Committee's sub- cpmmillee on heallh sirlering national health legislation. This is a test of American democracy. Can a statesma ;md quiet philosopher survive In the jungle of our politics? Is there an innate shrewdness In the voter that allows him to distinguish between the fancy TV ad and the product itself or arc we always swept awns by the image on the screen? Is there room for honest skepticism and even of so much progress, so much ?6od, and we toss away men, money, resources, good will like pennies into a savage war -for what? "If the Great Society had stuck to its goals, it could have been the beginning of the ?ol(ien age of- America. With the money we are spending in Vietnam, as well as the creative energy, we could build a magnificent system of education, make a real dent in the illness of poverty and the cities, and cure the pollution of our water and air.

Lee Munson of Little Rock said in an opinion Tuesday that slate law placed a duty on the keeper of a county 'ail to accept federal prisoners. Munson issued the ruling on he basis of a request from Pu- aski County Judge B. Frank Mackey. U.S. Marshall Lynn Davis of Little Rock has notified Mackey and Sheriff Monroe Love of Pu- aski County that he will have to house several prisoners at the county jail today. Davis also said he may have to house prisoners there in the future. He cited a state law that pro vidcs that it is the duly of tho jail keeper lo accept any per sons held in the custody of the federal marshal. Mackey said in February lha he was going lo cancel Ihe con tract the county had with the federal government lo house prisoners at his jail because there was not enough room.
