o Traitorr Kigjff 3:iaiaifcar& Th q Man from Anion o Tn.m.rm. Mail and money pouring in to National Draft Goldwater headquarters 7"ras one tribulations of traveling cross-country in the Jet age 1 Flying cross-country by jet cannot be considered routine by any but the seasoned traveller. There even are things to admire on the jaunt from Bend-Redmond to Portland. The little DC-3 is peanuts compared to its jet brother, but the man driving it is no monkey. If women were required to park their cars with the same accuracy this man uses when he neatly plops his plane In that rectangular strip way down there, there would be few women cjrivers left. It would be interesting to know how many airports in the country have those little overnight cubicles known as roomettes. And are they all. located so the fumes from the jets come seeping in through the ventilating system? The modern traveller must have the constitution of an ox. If he is going from the West Coast to the East Coast he will get breakfast, lunch and dinner all within a period of five hours. Stewardesses feed at appointed hours according to time changes, never considering that a West Coast stomach is still going by West Coast time. As often as not the poor soul has grabbed a bite of breakfast before he left home, had three or four meals en route, only to be greeted by friendy Easterners on the other end who have waited dinner for him. Put this whole procedure in reverse going back and it would be just as easy to starve. The airline stewardesses, incidentally, almost always looks like the type of girl a mother would want her son to marry. She is not always pretty, but she is trim, efficient, young and polite. Apparently the sons agree with their mothers because the stewardess turnover is high. Looking down from 33,000 feet cannot help but bring out the poet In almost anyone. The vastness of the Rockies, the flatness of Kansas, the size of our great river systems, can all be seen in one part of one day. The map of the United States suddenly comes to life. Fun and games are still in style even in 20th century travel. The rules are simple: First: Get on the plane and start looking for a window seat. There aren't any? Okay, then find one on the aisle. They're all taken too? Too bad! You arc stuck with a middle seat. So what if the man on your left is fat and the lady on your right is a talker. Play the game and be a sport. Second: Waft until the plane lands in Denver. Your man and your lady get off, you move over one to the window seat and a Dcnverite takes the aisle seat. Your former seat in the middle is now vacant because travel has slacked off between Denver and the next stop. Now you can use the empty middle for storing little things you've been carrying on your lap. (Sharing of course with your new companion on the aisle.) Third: Wait until the plane lands in Kansas City. Mr. Denver leaves and no one replaces him because hardly anyone in Kansas City wants to go to Baltimore. Fourth: Take out the removable arm rests between the seats, ask for a pillow, and sweet dreams 'til Baltimore. You have just won your first game of jet musical chairs. The return trip is really not too different from the original one. There are, however, a few new experiences. The traveler is usually worn out from whatever he was doing on his visit. He is now familiar enough with his surroundings so he can get in a little reading. But alas! the time is changing again and it keeps getting earlier .the later he stays up. By the time he finally arrives in Portland, he finds that his poor stomach is still in Chicago, just getting used to Central Standard Time. Barton's idea a good one Representative Clarence Barton, Speaker of the House in the Oregon Legislature, has suggested the Legislature recess while its tax-writing experts work out a puiposal for a sales tax. In making the suggestion. Barton made it clear he still opposes a sales tax. But he realizes, too, that some form of sales tax proposal will be on the ballot for a decision from Oregon voters within the next year. Barton's opposition, one suspects, is more doctrinaire than any-thing else. As one of the Legislature's real experts on taxation, he Is well aware of the present Imbalance In Oregon's state tax structure. Already, sales tax proposals arc beginning to spring up. Various groups are working on different plans. The trouble is, the groups which are making the proposals each have their own axes to grind. Most agree, on the mcd for a sales o tax. But some want all the money used for property tax relief or some other stated purpose. Some want certain items exempted, which would give an unfair advantage to those promoting the tax. The legislature, in spite of the trouble its last tax program faced only a few days ago, would be more able to draw up a fair and reasonable sales tax proposal than any individual pressure group In the state. If those members, like Barton, who oppose the sales tax in principle, would be fair in their work, voters could have a chance at a reasonable sales tax proposal. If they were not fair, they could guarantee the loss of any tax bill they write. Barton would not be a party to such a thing, but some of his cohorts are not above It. There are several ways in which Barton's proposal could be handled. One of them should be adopted. By Harry Ferguson UPI Staff Writer Final in Series WASHINGTON (UPI) Anybody who doubts Sen. Barry Goldwater's appeal to millions of voters should visit the National Draft Goldwater headquarters here. The mail and the money pour in from all over ths country and petitions asking Goldwater to run for President, accompanied by $1, already have produced $70 000. This is a voluntary organization, formed without Goldwater's advice or consent, and is headed by Peter O'Donnell, an investment business man from Dallas, Tex., who also is state Republican chairman. On July 4 O'Donnell staged a Goldwater rally at the National Guard Armory here with an audience of 9,000 persons from 44 states. Another source of income for the committee is the sale of campaign supplies. You can buy Goldwater auto bumper stickers, color posters, copies of the senator's books, ball point pens, lapel buttons, pictures of Goldwater in all shapes and sizes and necktie clasps. The committee has 14 regular employes, lots of volunteer helpers and occupies office space on Connecticut Avenue for which it pays $1,000 a month rent. Officially, Goldwater does not recognize this organization and will not do so until he is ready to announce his candidacy for the nomination. It can be as sumed, however, that O'Donnell can get the senator on the telephone any time he has something important to discuss. Leaving out the activities of the Draft Goldwater Committee the senator's presidential campaign until recently was a haphazard affair. In recent weeks all that has been changed. William Flythe, a former newspaper man, has been installed as speech writer and general assistant to Gold-water's hard pressed press secretary, Tony Smith. Denison Kitchel, whose official title is manager of the Goldwater Campaign for Re-election to the Senate, have moved from Phoenix to Washington and is beginning to think on a national scale. One of Kitchel's projects Is to compile a microfilm library of what Goldwater has said in two books, 800 speeches, countless press conferences and numerous television interviews and speeches. It will be card indexed so you can push a button and find out what Goldwater said on every conceivable subject and to whom he said it. This is a precaution against Goldwater being forced to sit down and eat an unpalatable meal consisting of his own words. The latest to join the Gold-water camp is Edward A. Mc-Cabe, a 45-year-old Washington lawyer who was an administrative assistant to President Eisenhower from 1956 to 1960. His title will be research director and he will assemble a group of consultants to advise Gold-water on pre-convention strategy. Some Goldwater men already are at work out in the country. Sen. Norris Cotton, (R-N.H.,) is in charge of strategy in his native state. William T. Know-land, former Republican senator from California, heads a Goldwater advisory committee on the West Coast. It is impossible to estimate the total amount of money that is being donated to the Goldwater cause. The Draft Goldwater Committee says it needs much more money than it is receiving, but there never has been a political organization yet naive enough to concede it had all the financial backing it wanted. Washington Merry-go-round 1 Bobby Baker learned from his superiors in Senate By Drew Pearson WASHINGTON - The investigation of Bobby Baker by the Senate Rules Committee should really be labeled an investigation of juvenile delinquency. If the earnest chairman of the Rules Committee, Sen. Everett Jordon of Saxapahaw, N.C., will consult any of the juvenile experts, he will find that the No. 1 cause of delinquency is the example of a boy's family, friends, and environment. The senator from Saxapahaw is the son of a Methodist minister, raised in a God-fearing family, became a respectable textile manufacturer. Bobby Baker, on the other hand, was raised by the Senate of the United Stales. As a Senate page boy from Pickens, S. C, he got up early in the morning to study in a Senate school, and after work was over on the Senate floor he studied further at a Senate school. His whole life was the Capitol Building and the Congress of the United States. His was a great success story. Only 26 boys a session become Senate pages, and from this he rose to be secretary of the Senate majority. But like any other American boy he took on (lie habits, the point of view of his environment. Sex and the Senate One of the rumors bruited around Bobby pertains to sex. It is whispered that he is an American counterpart of Dr. Stephen Ward. The whispers may be unfair. But, if true, Bobby saw sex and politics mixing all around him as he grew up as a Senate page boy. In fact, one member of an important investigating committee who sits in judgment on others once got a teen-age high school girl in a family way during a debating trip to St. Louis. This writer has also reported how Mendel Rivers, the silver-thatched solon from Charleston, S C., scantily clad, chased women around the corridors of the Savoy Hotel in London and became so fond of alcohol during overseas junkets that the late Sam Haybuni banned h i m from junketing.

COMBS GETS AWARD WASHINGTON (LTD Gov. Bert Combs of Kentucky was among six persons named Thursday as winners of the second annual Joseph P. Kennedy Jr. Foundation awards for outstanding contributions in the field of mental retardation. Besides Combs. Sen. Lister Hill. D-Ala.. and Rep. John E. Fogarty. D R. I., also were cited for leadership in the field. Winners of the service awards were Dr. G rover Francis Powers, professor emeritus of pediatries at Yale, and Dr. Robert P. L.

Penrose, professor of eugenics, University College, London. ers continues to occupy a high place in Congress. He even commands airplanes from the Pentagon to fly him on weekends back and forth to South Carolina chiefly because he is a ranking member of the House Armed Services Committee and of the Appropriations Committee for the Armed Services. Bobby Baker, who comes from the same state, has watched all this happen with impunity. I do not know Eobby Baker well. I was embarrassed the last time I saw him about a year ago that I did not recognize him and he had to introduce himself. But I do know something about juvenile delinquency as president of the Big Brothers in this area and I know what example and environment do to young people. Bobby is accused, among other things, of maneuvering to insert an amendment in the tax laws which would favor his Carousel Motel in Ocean City, Md. Undoubtedly true. But Bobby, growing up in the atmosphere of Capitol Hill, doubtless recalls many other private tax amendments. One of the most notable was the Louis B. Mayer tax amendment. Race Track Amendment This was written into the tax laws by the expert tax lawyer-lobbyist Ellsworth Alvord for the benefit of the late head of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, who was faced with a Treasury ruling that he could not deduct the losses for his racing stable. Thanks to the Mayer amendment, quietly inserted into the tax laws for the benefit of one man, racing stables are a more easily deductible tax espense for the Blue Grass families of Kentucky and the aristocrats of Long Island, even when the horses race only occasionally. Bobby Baker was quite young when another big political maneuver took place which affected racing just outside Washington. More important than racing, it affected people's lives. Back in the days when President F. D. Roosevelt feared Hitler, Mussolini, and the Japanese warlords were fanning up World War II, he stopped the sale of 122 surplus government ships to a Baltimore scrap iron dealer, Aaron Shapiro. Whereupon a powerful senator, Millard T y d i n g s of Maryland, threatened the Roosevelt administration with investigation and legislative obstruction. He used the same threatening tactics Rep. John Byrnes, R-Wis., recently used to get a tax ruling favorable to the Wisconsin Mortgage Company in which Byrnes and Bobby Baker have a stock interest. Tydings was so threatening that the Roosevelt administration finally sold most of these ships to Japan. They came back in the form of shot and shell against American boys at Pearl Harbor and Guadalcanal and Midway and Leyte Bay a few years later. And earlier this week, on Veterans Day, it was ironic that Washington society gathered at laurel Race Track to pay tribute to the nation's dead, and watch the International, not knowing that the track had been built by the Shapiro family from the scrap iron profits they made from selling our surplus ships to Japan. I hold no brief for Bobby Baker. Rut those who cast stones should remember that this is the atmosphere in which he grew up. Capital Report Morse opposed by Maurine in his baffle to have America cut back foreign aid By A. Robert Smith Bulletin Correspondent WASHINGTON Sen. Wayne Morse is enjoying an hour of triumph in the Senate which may turn out to be an historic turning point in America's postwar policy of granting financial aid to foreign nations on a grand scale. The Oregon senator, always an internationalist in his own political philosophy, is leading a successful attack on the Kennedy Administration's request for continued foreign aid. By rallying the votes to prove that there is sufficient agreement within the Senate in favor of substantial cuts in foreign aid, Morse is forcing the leaders to give ground. Morse has been critical of foreign aid in recent years, notably military aid which is used by authoritarian regimes to oppress segments of their own people. The oppression of Buddhists last August in South Viet Nam with military forces supplied by U.S. aid has been the most notorious recent example, which Morse denounced. But this year the senator started an all-out attack on the foreign aid program. For a time he made a daily speech to blast some aspect of the program. The administration asked for $4.5 billion but the House approved authorization of only $3.5 billion. In the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Morse tried to keep the total down to about the House level but was outvoted. The committee sent to the Senate a bill for $4.2 billion and Morse took his fight to the Senate floor, where it has raged since Oct- y mc&ei s worni The Bulletin mlnimn contribution to Ibis column from Its readers.

Gambling in Oregon subject of writer To the Editor: Speaking of gambling, there is, there was and there always will be gambling as long as human beings live on this earth. We all gamble one way or another. Life is a gamble. Bringing it down to a few specific gambles, the stock market for one, this type of gambling is approved by all and it is one of the biggest gambles in this country. Many buy stocks that would flip at playing poker for money. These people wouldn't think of betting on races or buying a lottery ticket, but, they gamble or take a chance in our stores when all you do is put your name and address on a card to win Grandmas Doodle Bugs dippy dipper sure you don't put out any cash, or do you, these gimmicks don't come free for nothing. So Oregon bans gambling, gets holier than thou and prohibits card games, lottery, and one arm bandits, slot machines that is. Gambling goes on just the same in Oregon as it does in any other state, only difference we don't collect any revenue from it. There are special buses that run to Nevada for gamblers to go there and drop their money; plenty of money made in Oregon is left at the gambling places there, and Nevada collects its share of it to finance their state. Wouldn't it be better if we allowed gambling in Oregon and used that revenue for care of old. schools, or highways, than to let it go to some other state, and wouldn't it be better to bring gambling out in the cpen than to have it in dives, back rooms and other places? We pay out tax money to pay officers to arrest gambling places proprietors, pay for law suits and don't make a dent in the gambling. We tried prohibition that was a gory mess, spent thousands to keep man from demon mm - so we had bootleggers, speak casys, and places where old and young could get drinks of liquor as long as they had the money. Isn't it better since we have the clubs and have our drinking out in the open a drink, music and companionship, and not feel like alley cats from sneaking down alleys to get a drink? Yes we found out the hard way that those that wish to drink are going to dr i n k , so we did something about it, and the revenue from clubs and liquor are put to good use. Why not bring gambling out in the open and collect from it and use the money for schools, old age care, or any thing else that does some good and cuts the overburden of tax. I don't believe there is much less gambling in the state than there ever was. When we woke up to the fact that we couldn't stop people from drinking, we made it into a respectable business. Why not do the same with gambling? The old gripe was that money used for gambling was needed for food for families. The type of person that would spend money on gambling and let their family go without food will continue to do the same no matter what law we have. Tax money, money spent in clubs and more taxes could he spent for family too, and needs to be. Taxes we must have so why not brush up on our sense of values and open Oregon to gambling? If you ask me (nobody will) I think we are paying a pretty high price for our rusty halo. Sincerely, Elsie Mooreman Bend, Oregon Nov. 14, 1963 Yosemite ober 28. In opening his defense of the committee bill. Foreign Relations Chairman J. W. Fulbright sensed the mood of congressional rebellion. He acknowledged that the aid program was becoming "obsolescent" but he argued that tampering with it this year would be too risky. His attempt to hold the line failed. Senate leaders of both parties, recognizing the prevailing mood, put together a compromise to trim $385 million from the committee version, reducing the total to $3.8 billion. By this move they hoped to avert deeper cuts. Morse, however, was not assuaged by his bipartisan proposal which he lambasted as a "powerhouse amendment." He failed in his attempt to recommit the bill to committee for major revision but succeeded in cutting the compromise bill by another $25 million. The vote was 42 to 40 in favor of Morse's amendment. Senators who supported Morse proved a mixture of Republicans and Democrats, liberals and conservatives. One liberal Democrat who supported Morse's amendment explained the mood of the majority this way: "Most senators think this whole foreign aid program needs a good shaking up." He said if Morse weren't out in front leading the attack, somebody else would. Other observers think Morse, the uniquely outspoken senator that he is, is articulating what many senators, especially Democrats, are hesitant to say out loud because such criticism is at odds with Kennedy's program and U.S. foreign policy. Sen. Maurine Neuberger opposed most of Morse's efforts to slash (lie foreign aid bill, thus remaining an administration stalwart on this issue. Morse evidently has his ear to the ground on this issue. A Senate staff member who has examined letters from Oregon voters said: "The people are fed up with foreign aid." Morse's regular trips home these days give him abundant opportunity to sense public sentiment. Traditionally the House cuts foreign aid to the bone and the Senate restores much of it before the bill gets to the White House. But this year for the first time the Senate is equally rebellious and Wayne Morse is out front leading the charge. U.S. foreign aid may never be the same after the Senate's October - November revolt of 1963.
