WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND BY JACK ANDERSON (Editor's Note - Drew Pearson is in Europe. This column is written by his associate, Jack Anderson.) WASHINGTON - Though shrill war threats have been heard in Honoi, Peking, and Moscow, only the North Vietnamese seem to be making the slightest move to carry them out. Intelligence reports reveal that North Viet Nam has launched a massive campaign to mobilize for war. Propagandists are whipping the people into a war frenzy. The nation's youth are being recruited into a "three-ready movement": (1) ready to join the army, (2) ready to fight, and (3) ready to go anywhere to defeat the enemy. In Hanoi alone, more than 120,000 youths have been signed up. Young women are being assigned to replace the men in fields and factories. 2 for the price of I PLUS A PENNY! r Rexall NOW GOING ON! THURS. APRIL 1 Hm SAT. APRIL 10 HONSBRUC DRUG "Your Algona Rexall Store" The whole campaign is ominously similar to the activity that preceded Red China's entry into the Korean War. The air attacks on North Viet Nam also haven't stopped the flow of men and materials into South Viet Nam. A heavy concentration of North Vietnamese troops has been spotted in the central highlands, poised to cut South Viet Nam in half. A continuing guerrilla buildup also has been reported around the great U. S. air base at Da Nang. This could lead to open fighting between the Viet Cong and the 3,500 Marines who were sent ashore to protect the base. Gen. Frederick March, the Marine commander, has asked for reinforcement. State Department strategists suspect, however, that the North Vietnamese buildup andthe Chinese bombast may be merely an attempt to bolster their bargaining position for future negotiation. For the communists have dropped a couple of delicate hints that they may be willing to negotiate a truce in Viet Nam. The Chinese told the French Ambassador in Peking last month that they would not insist upon any pre-conditions to a peace conference. This was hinted again last week by Gen. Vo Nguyen Giap, the North Vietnamese defense minister, in talks with a Japanese delegation. Note - President Johnson told the governors who dined with him recently at the White House that the United States has three alternatives in Viet Nam. "We can pull out, send in troops for a full-scale ground war, or bomb the communist bases in North Viet Nam," he said. The President quickly added that he didn't want to preside over pull-out, so he had chosen the third alternative. - o - —CLOSE SPACE RACE— The race between America's astronauts and Russia's cosmonauts is turning into a breathtaking thriller. The Americans were the first to maneuver their space capsule in orbit. Earlier, the Russians claimed to have maneuvered two capsules together in space. But American tracking stations disclosed that neither capsule changed orbit. They were merely brought close together, each in its own orbit, during one go- round. On the next Gemini flights, the Americans will practice rendezvous and docking, which they must master before they can take on fuel in space or drop Eat Out Often In ALGONA HOTEL ALGONA COFFEE SHOP HOME OF THE VIENNA SANDWICH & FULL 1 POUND PORTERHOUSE STEAK OPEN Mon. - Fri. 6 A.

A Soviet cosmonaut, of course, was the first to venture out of his capsule into space.The Russian program, it is known, calls for cosmonauts to repair and even assemble spacecraft in orbit. Meanwhile, American space officials are rushing the design for a new space suit which will permit our astronauts to crawl out of their capsule in flight. If the suit can be made ready, an astronaut may step into space later this year - several months ahead of the original schedule. Note - Alan Shepard, the first American astronaut to go up in a rocket, has been by-passed for the Gemini flights because of an inner ear inflammation. Once the doctors clear up his condition, he will take his turn in orbit. - o — AUTO MAKERS OPPOSE— The big auto manufacturers are quietly lobbying to prevent the government from setting minimum safety standards for the cars it purchases. Government officials have pointed out, however, that the automobile is the only major vehicle that isn't required to conform to federal safety standards. Ships, planes, locomotives, and interstate trucks and buses are required to maintain minimum standards. Now the General Services Administration intends to demand safety features in all automobiles that the government buys. What worries the auto makers is that Congress may impose these federal safety standards on all automobiles. - o - -CIVIL RIGHTS ATTACK— Civil rights leaders are planning an attack on the real estate boards which have been working quietly against fair housing laws at the local level. They were instrumental in overturning California's Fair Housing Law, which became the hottest issue in last November's election. Real estate interests are also working against fair housing in Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode ' Island, Texas, and Washington. Civil rights advocates hope to force the flight into the open * and put the real estate boards on the spot for promoting discrimination. Note - Sen. Dick Russell, D-Ga., the leader of the Southern bloc, has complained privately that he may not have the physical stamina to lead the fight against voting-rights legislation. He may turn the task over to Sen. John Stennis, D-Miss., or Sen. Herman Talmadge, D-Ga. Meanwhile, both Democratic and Republican leaders have served notice, if the Southerners insist upon filibustering the measure, the Senate will get no Easter vacation. - o - —NOT EXPECTED TO LAST— The diplomatic grapevine is buzzing with rumors that Alexei Kosygin, who replaced Nikita Khrushchev as the Russian Premier, may now be in the doghouse himself. The Kremlin is reported to be disgruntled over Kosygin's handling of North Viet Nam and Red China. His trip to the Far East, which was supposed to bolster Soviet prestige and cement Sino- Soviet relations, produced the opposite effect, Kosygin got caught in the middle of the power play over Viet Nam, which forced him to hedge on Soviet military support. And the Red Chinese have become more belligerent than ever. There are signs that Communist Party Boss Leonid Brezh- nev is moving to the fore and that Kosygin may be dropped back to his post as Russia's economic specialist. - o - —ROCKEFELLER, A DEMOCRAT ?President Johnson made such an effective and impassioned defense of his Viet Nam actions at the White House dinner for state governors that New York's Gov. Nelson Rockefeller jumped up to pay tribute to the President and to pledge support on Viet Nam, Afterward, California's Gov. Pat Brown sidled up to Rockefeller and offered mischievously; "We have a registration desk just outside, Would you like to re-register as a Democrat?" - o -NO TAX SECRETS- WASHINGTON - The Nation's harassed taxpayers, making their painful computations in the rush to beat the tax deadline, have the mistaken impression that their returns are inviolate. Not so. Individual returns are made available to government gumshoes for the most frivolous of reasons. With a mininum of ceremony, snoopers from a long list of federal, state, and local agencies can pry into almost anyone's financial secrets at the Internal Revenue Office. The authorized list runs from A (Agriculture Department) to V (Veterans Administration). It includes such assorted federal agencies as the Civil Service Commission, Federal Trade Commission, Health, Education, and Welfare Department, Housing and Home Finance Agency, Interstate Commerce Commission, Labor Department, Securities and Exchange Commission, Small Business Administration, Social Security Administration, and Tennessee Valley Authority. Tax returns may be turned over to federal agents for such widespread purposes as establishing whether individuals are entitled to social security or veterans pension benefits, snooping on federal employees, checking applicants for radio and television licenses, investigating union welfare funds and running down antitrust violations. State and local authorities can also poke into income tax re- cords on a multitude of excuses. Indeed, no one's returns are safe from government prying and peeping. The only rule seems to be that the sleuths should be careful not to tip off the taxpayer. A typical federal agency has issued strict written instructions that "the taxpayer should be given no indication that the national office or other federal agency is interested in this matter." - o -MERRY-GO-ROUND— Rep. Adam Clayton Powell of Harlem, the great outdoor man, has ordered a special telephone, colored sky-blue, installed at taxpayer expense on the balcony of his palatial office in the new House office building. Powell wants to take advantage of the sun while lie works .... Rep. Mendel Rivers, chairman of the Armed Services Committee, is not satisfied with using Air Force planes to transport him free between Washington and his home in South Carolina. Now he is using military personnel to help with office chores. Rivers called on about a dozen men from the Army, Air Force and Marines to carry his files to his new office in the hundred-million- dollar Rayburn Building. Tueidoy, April 6, 1965 Algona (la.)

MATTHIESEN, Fenton, Iowa Ignore the resistant-rootworm problem and you'll find that your corn crop can be reduced as much as 50% . . . even more! That's why thousands of growers are putting in their orders for THIMET (phor- ate) soil insecticide . . . now! It's the low cost, proven, resistant- rootworm control. To get the best results with THIMET, it is important that you apply it according to label directions. THIMET should be applied in a wide band application. The insecticide tubes should be behind the shoe —dropping the granules after the seed has been partially covered with soil. THIMET is easy to apply with conventional granular equipment. It is free-flowing. You avoid down time due to caking. No matter how you measure THIMET, you will find it provides top resistant-rootworm control. Don't risk resistant-rootworm damage. Use THIMET-the low cost, proven, resistant-rootworm control. Start on the way to bigger, better corn yields today—order THIMET from your insecticide dealer. Come harvest, you'll be glad you did. Before using any pesticide, stop and read the label. Once lodging occurs, mechanical picking is very difficult, often impossible. You can prevent lodging caused by resistant roolworms with JHIMET (phorate) soil insecticide.
