Merry-Go-Round iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiniiiiiinmiiinm aiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiii By Drew Pearson --WHY BOMBING STOPPED-Here is the Inside story of why the United States suddenly stopped bombing North Viet Nam last week. The let-up took place after Foreign Minister Gromyko sent advance word to Secretary of State Rusk that he wanted to see him during the Foreign Ministers Meeting in Vienna. Simultaneously the Indians and the Canadians picked up hints in Hanoi that a ceasefire might be possible if both sides eased up on their attacks. The hint was vague, but the Communists seemed to be offering to slack off their guerrilla attacks In the South if the United States would suspend Its air raids in the North. This was the real reason for the five-day suspension on bombing. Secretary Rusk hurried to Vienna full of hope that a settlement might be in the wind. But Gromyko gave him a polite brush- off and never explained why he had sent the earlier message. The North Vietnamese also arrogantly rejected discussion offers from the Indians and Canadians. Our Joint Chiefs of Staff had always warned that the Viet Cong were not likely to enter any peace talks until they had taken advantage of the rains which are coming soon. So a disappointed President Johnson ordered the air raids on North Viet Nam resumed. - o - --KKK GROWS-FBI Chief J. Edgar Hoover told the House Appropriations Committee recently that the Mln- utemen group had made 20 U.S. Congressmen, who voted against a further increase for the House Un-American Activities Committee, a prime target of its hate "It looks great, Pop!" Even Junior points with pride to the fresh new beauty of his nursery walls. They've just been painted with new one-coat vinyl DA-TEX wall paint — a latex paint unlike any you have ever used. This new DA-TEX, developed by Davis Paint Company and advertised in LIFE magazine, rolls or brushes on smoothly. If you touch up later it shows no laps or telltale traces. The reason? It's Densi-tized. New DA-TEX has a heavier body. You get less drip, less spatter. Dries quickly. Guaranteed washable.

Hoover's closed-door testimony revealed that "On Target," a monthly newsletter of the Mlnutemen, referred to 20 legislators as "Judasists." He added, "this newsletter repeatedly employs a rhetoric of violence. For example, it carried the statement, 'traitors be ware I Even now the crossbars are on the back of your neck,' " The FBI boss said that the membership of the Black Muslims, anti-white Negro group, now estimated at 6,100, had been decreasing because of charges that its leader, Elijah Muhammad of Chicago, was the father of illegitimate children. Members have been "continuously involved in violent conflict with local police," Hoover reported, and some have refused to register under the Selective Service Act on the ground that they owe no allegiance to the United States. There has been a "marked Increase" In Ku Klux Klan membership during the past year, the G-boss further revealed, especially in Southern communities where civil rights groups have been most active. Overall Klan membership is estimated at about 9,000. Largest Klan unit is the United Klaus of America, headed by Imperial Wizard Robert Shelton of Alabama. It has an estimated membership of 4,600 and Is active in eight states, Hoover reported. - o - -DETROIT'S POLICE FILES There's something awfully funny about the manner in which the Detroit police slipped the personal file on the late Mrs. Viola Lluzzo indirectly to the Ku Klux Klan, whose members are accused of murdering her. First, Police Commissioner Ray Glarardin denied that the Detroit Police ever kept private files on anyone. Then he admitted that a file was kept on Mrs. Lluzzo and said that Earl Miller, his deputy, had done nothing wrong in giving the file to a suburban police official, who then sent the file to Selma, Ala. Having said this, Commissioner Giarardin then turned round and demoted the deputy who had done nothing wrong. Obviously he realized that American police officials are not supposed to keep Gestapo files on private citizens, and if they do, are not supposed to pass them out to others. - o - —DOMINICAN FIASCO— The Johnson Administration has now been on every side of the Dominican Revolution, and has finally come up with the ludicrous claim that it is neutral, Nothing could be further from the truth. No chapter in Latin American relations within the past two decades, furthermore, has hurt the United States more. After the OAS was slow in negotiating a truce, the impatient President sent his own personal team of negotiators to Santo Domingo. This made the OAS mad. They were also sore because the United States did not exercise its veto in the UN Security Council to block the UN from sending its own med- y//ss//s.y//'/,s//s/s///////M^^^ DON'T 1)1! LAY!

As a result, the OAS left Santo Domingo. The Argentine Government called for a review of OAS powers and reversed Its previous decision to send Argentine troops to the OAS police force. That force is now limping along, with 20 Costa Rlcan policemen and 200 Honduran soldiers. LBJ, having intervened on the pretext of protecting American citizens, switched to warding off Communism, then his Ambassador switched again— in favor of a coalition government. This made the generals we had been supporting see red. They would have been defeated if UJ5, Marines had not come Into the front lines to relieve their troops when exhausted. But having been rescued, Gen, Imbert thumbed his nose at the USA, accused us of interfering with Dominican sovereignty. In the eyes of Latin diplomats, we have been made to look like monkeys. Not only has American prestige taken a severe licking, but the peace machinery of the OAS has been badly tarnished. Only thing definite about the Dominican crisis is that there will be more revolutions. The great mass of the Dominican people are for Bosch, against the military junta. - o - - MRS. POWELL'S SALARY- It looks as if the No. 1 Harlem globe trotter, Rep. Adam Clayton Powell, D-N.Y. Is going to have to dig down in his pocket for approximately $7,900 on his wife's salary and pay it back to Uncle Sam. For Rep. Lionel VanDeerlinof California has uncovered the fact that Congressman Powell has been paying his wife illegally at the rate of $18,908.80 ever since Jan. 1. Van Deerlin introduced legislation in April providing that a Congressman could not pay more than $1,500 to any clerk or secretary working outside of Washington or the Congressman's home district. He was aiming at Mrs. Powfill. who works in San Juan, Puerto Rico, allegedly answering her husband's mail, and at tfther Congressional wives and relatives who draw salaries from Uncle Sam though actually marking time in places well removed from the work of the Congressman. After Rep, Van Deerlin began researching legislation on this subject, he found that an even stricter law was already on the statute books as of Jan 1. It provided: "No person shall be paid from any clerical hire allowance if such person does not perform the services for which he receives such compensation In the offices of such member (of Congress) in Washington, D.C., or In the state or district in which such member resides." This clearly affects Mrs. Powell, since San Juan, where she \ CROSSWORD PUZZLE LAST WEEKS ANSWER ACROSS 1. Capital of Tibet 6. Irregularly toothed 11. Anxious 15. Stream 13. Guides 15.

It means she has been paid illegally since Jan. 1. WASHINGTON - Sen. Ed Long, D-Mo., has his senate investigators snoop-on the Internal Revenue investigators. They claim that IRS agents in their zeal to catch delinquent taxpayers, tap telephones, bug offices, and open others' mail. They have spied on taxpayers through binoculars, watched them through one-way windows, and even broken into homes without warrants to steal evidence out of the taxpayers' files. Sen. Long is also probing the charge that tax agents have eavesdropped on privileged conversations between taxpayer sand their attorneys. People in tax trouble, accompanied by their lawyers, have been ushered into bugged offices, then left alone while agents listened in on their private conversations and watched them through one-way windows. Even the pay phones in the lobbies of some Internal Revenue offices have been bugged, Senate probers claim. IRS agents learned that some taxpayers, after finding they are in trouble, phone their attorneys from the nearest phone booth. Sen. Long had planned to start hearings in Pittsburgh this month to expose these alleged abuses. But Attorney GeneralKatzenbach persuaded Sen. Joe Clark of Pennsylvania to intervene. As a Senatorial courtesty, no Senate committee will go into a senator's state without his approval. So, Katzenbachpleaded with Clark that the hear ings would jeopardize a tax case that is coming to trail in Pittsburgh. Clark agreed to ask Long not to hold the hearings in Pennsylvania at least until the trial is over. The day of reckoning for Internal'Revenue has been postponed.

ST RONG CHURCHES.. Make Strong Communities "For it is better to suffer for doing right, if that should be God'x will, than for doing wrong. — 1 Peter 3:17 How often have we heard the expression, "I'll forgive you, but I won't forget it."? Is this true forgiveness? It cannot be. It is more like saying, "It's done — but my turn will come sometime." Forgiving is not always easy. It is extremely difficult when we know that we have been "wronged" unjustly and that "truth" is on our side. Still, we cannot forgive on a conditional or a "maybe" basis. We must forgive — and forget. There is one great example — the life and death of Jesus Christ. In the painful moment of death, Christ asked forgiveness for those who had unjustly accused and unjustly committed Him to a miserable death.
