WASHINGTOM MERRY-GO-ROUND BY DREW PEARSON Attorney General Katzenbach has submitted a confidential memo to the senate investigating committee charging that the national crime syndicate, the Cosa Nostra, has a "minimum of five- thousand members." But he said that government agents have been keeping such close watch on the syndicate that the leaders no longer dare to hold crime conferences. They meet In small groups of three or four Instead. Katzenbach reported that four mob chiefs scheduled a meeting recently in a New York night club, but at the last minute changed the meeting place. They set out separately for a new meeting place on foot, walking against one-way traffic and watching for agents who might _be trying to ENDS WED., APRIL 28 "BEACH BLANKET BINGO" aLGONA THURS. - SAT.

Otherwise, the Katzenbach report could not have been written. - o - —OFF THE RECORD SLIP— President Johnson's off-the record remarks to newsmen may backfire against him during the senate debate on the negro voting rights bill. Southern senator shave learned that Johnson confided to reporters at the LBJ ranch that he considered section 8 of the voting rights bill unconstitutional. He was glad it was called the Mansfleld-Dlrksen bill for that reason, he salJ. Section 8 would forbid states from passing laws restricting voting rights without the prior approval of a three- judge panel. When a newsman passed this remark to Sen. Everett Dirksen, the Senator from Illinois retorted: "What does he know about constitutionality?" However, southern senators intend to quote the President's remarks extensively and effectively during the senate debate. - o - —AIRPLANE MURDERS— Investigators for the airlines have uncovered evidence that some air disasters, officially ruled accidents, actually were caused by sabotage. Details will be made public during the upcoming congressional debate. Rep. Don Clausen, D. Calif., has drafted a bill which would make it a federal offense for passengers to carry firearms or explosives on an airplane. His bill would also require that cockpits of airplanes be locked, bullet-proofed and fitted with oneway mirrors. The airplane pilots favor these regulations, but the airlines claim there is too much government control already.

S. Jet Fighters have been knocked out of the^skies by older Communist jets oVer Viet Nam. Reason is our jets neglected to take along enough airborne radar. Normally a radar plane is sent aloft to scout the skies for hostile planes, but U. S. forces haven't always done this. Returning pilots have complained that their targets in North Viet Nam sometimes are deserted and the anti-aircraft gunners seem to be waiting for them, as if they were tipped off In advance. However, less than 40 planes have been downed in Viet Nam in the past six months, and during the same period the Air Force acquired more than 450 new combat planes. - o - -TAX CUT AND WAR-If the south Vietnamese fighting continues - and it's almost certain to continue - the chance of a drastic cut In excise taxes seems remote. The Vietnamese war is costing Johnson close to $ 2 million a day double what he estimated. It will cost more within the next few weeks as more troops and more planes get Into action. Johnson had planned an excise tax cut of $1.7 5 billion. However, the lobbyists have been pressuring Individual congressmen so hard that LBJ will probably face a runaway congress which will vote excise cuts up to $3.5 billion. If so, the President is certain to apply the brakes, might have to give up his tax cut entirely. This would be a humiliating reversal for him, but otherwise he faces a bad budget deficit. - o —UNHAPPY MOMENTS— • -* The British have been our best friends and most loyal supporters in the Vietnamese imbroglio, though privately they have moments of unhapplness. One of these came when Prime Minister Wilson telephoned his Foreign Minister, Michael Stewart, In Washington instructing him to register a firm protest against the use of riot gas In South Viet Nam. . Stewart did so - direct to President Johnson. But neither the American nor British public knew what happened afterward. The persuasive President '••JohnsoiR- rt atr-this point somewhat indignant, gave the British Foreign Minister such a sales talk on the fact that riot gas was used all over the world and was so much better than killing people that Stewart, in his speech before the National Press Club later that day, trimmed his sails. After putting his government on record against the use of gas, he added that Britain bad confidence In the good judgment of the United States. - o - -HIGH COST OF BEEF-Housewives should watch the national commission on food and Tuesday.

The commission resulted from cattlemen's protests against the price spread between beef on the hoof and prices in the chain stores. Many cattlemen pointed out that retail prices of choice beef to the consumer had increased 26 per cent since 1947, while prices to the producer had decreased 14 per cent, and demanded protection by tariff. Johnson countered with the national commission on food and marketing which includes five senators, five congressmen, and five public representatives, including the President of J. C. Penney, and Judge Phil S. Gibson, former Chief Justice of California. Target of the probe is the chain stores. Preliminary research shows that the Winn-Dixie chain made a 24 per cent profit last year on investment after taxes. Safeway netted 14 per cent after taxes on Its Investment.The continuing spread between the cattle producer's price and the retail price caused the Ohio farm Bureau to vote to buy out the A & P chain, largest In the nation. The Farm Bureau, incidentally, has the necessary financing to do it. Hearings will continue - on poultry - in Atlanta, then move to Washington May 5 to give the chain stores opportunity for rebuttal. Cattle producers are demanding final rebuttal after that. - o - —REMEMBERING FDR- When Sen. Bob Taft, republican, died, republican friends raised the money for a monument to him within a year and put it on government land opposite the senate office building where he had worked. Taft was never President of the United States. When President Kennedy, was killed, 'friends raised most of the money to put up a huge memorial - a $25,000,000 cultural center on the Potomac River within a year after his death. Kennedy had been President less than one term. When Franklin Roosevelt died, after serving longer than any other man In history, his friends argued for 20 years and failed to agree on a memorial In his honor. None of the proposed $4,500,000 has been raised. Finally Averell Harriman, who began government service under FDR, decided to put across a memorial on his own - a simple block of marble in the form FDR requested.

After July 1, the law will require that business firms with more than 100 employees and unions with more than 100 members must stop discriminating against both negroes and women. Johnson will appoint an enforcement commission to carry out the law, but will not do so until the voting rights law is passed. He doesn't want to antagonize congressmen during that debate. - o -NEW HEAD C.I.A.— Admiral William F. Raborn is such a nice guy that the Senate will doubtless confirm him as Chief of Central Intelligence with out much debate. However, as a newspaperman I must report that since Raborn's retirement he has been steeped in exactly the atmosphere which Dwight D. Eisenhower blasted so vigorously In his last message to the American people, when, Jan. 17, 1961, he warned of a dangerous alliance between the big military complex and the big defense complex. The big defense complex from which Admiral Raborn came - Aerojet-General Tire-Polaris went one step beyond Gen. Eisenhower's warning and also includes radio-television and newspapers. In addition, Rep. Edward Hebert, D-La., disclosed In a Congressional probe of defense lobbying that Aerojet employed 66 admirals, generals, and other retired officers. Admiral Raborn was In charge of the Polaris missile program for the Navy from 1955 to 1963 and Immediately upon retirement walked over to the company which had the chief Polaris contract - Aerojet - to become Its vice president In charge of Polaris production in California. Relations between the Navy and Aerojet have been so chummy during part of Raborn's regime in the Navy that it has been difficult for Congressmen and government accountants to fathom where the government's business stopped and Aerojet's began. The House Armed Services Committee discovered, for instance, that the Navy placed $4,800,000 in buildings on Aero- jet property from 1946-52, and since the property could not readily be removed, It reverted to Aerojet. "This is a heads-I-win, talls- ydu-lose proposition," commented Rep. William Bray, R- Ind. Admiral Raborn was not in charge of the Polaris program at that time, but Dan Kimball, now president of Aerojet, was then Assistant Secretary and Secretary of the Navy. Later, Admiral Raborn was In charge of the Polaris program when the Defense Department permitted Aerojet to charge up the $205,000 cost of a cafeteria to the taxpayers, even though Rep. Porter Hardy, D-Va. f showed that the cafeteria showed a profit of $71,000. r Because it's our annual S&L DAYS SALE- Open Wed.
