Alflona (la.) Upper DM Molnet- Tuesday, June 8, 1965 Merry-Go-Round iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitiiniiiHiiiMtiiiiiiiw Drew Pearson WASHINGTON - Plagued by Communist plots from Latin America to Southeast Asia, President Johnson has decided that two can play the guerrilla game. He has quietly offered full U.S. backing to underground groups that are willing to fight against Dictator Castro Inside Cuba. He Intends to keep Castro so busy at home, fighting off commando raids and guerrilla attacks, that he won't have time to stir up revolutions around Latin America. The President would also like to step up guerrilla activity behind Communist lines in Laos and Viet Nam. A few guerrilla bands already are operating in Communist country. They are supplied by a mysterious, CIA- subsidized airline called Air America. Its pilots, flying by the seat of their pants, skim low over the Jungle and drop weapons to the guerrillas. - o —RED DIVISION READY" Ambassador Maxwell Taylor was summoned to Washington this week to discuss the Viet Cong offensive, which is expected to blow in with the monsoons the coming month. A full North Vietnamese division of 8,000 men reportedly is poised in the central highlands, ready to drive across South Viet Nam. Other North Vietnamese units and guerrilla groups are expected to emerge from the jungles to back up the offensive. Meanwhile, the North Vietnamese are evacuating key ministries from their capital. This is the action of a government digging in for a fight, not planning to sue for peace. The Viet Cong also is reported preparing to form a government for South Viet Nam that will seek recognition around the world. In other words, bombing has not won the war in Viet Nam. The final victory must be decided in the steaming jungles and Infested swamps. Aware of this, the Joint Chiefs of Staff have adopted what they call the "ink-blot strategy." They will pour men and material into several beachheads. The troops will keep their backs to the ocean, ever widening the ink blots until they can spread gradually over South Viet Nam. - o —INSURANCE FIRM— Attention the House Un-American Activities Committee; We suggest that you check into the Heritage Insurance Agency. You will find that It is jointly owned by the United Klans of America and by personal friends of Imperial Wizard Robert Shelton. You should also investigate who Is making all the profit on the sheets, hoods and confederate arm patches being sold to Klansmen. - o - —FORECAST WORLD OF 1985— A team of Syracuse University scientists has taken a 20- year look ahead at what the world will be like in 1985. Their confidential report to the government is still confidential, but this column can reveal their most Important predictions. The experts foresee a more youthful population of nearly 275,000,000 better educated, better fed, better clothed, more urbanized, more computerized Americans. This doesn't necessarily mean they will be healthier or happier than today's generation. New diseases will keep pace with cures for the old ones, and mental illness will continue to grow. The experts forecast a cultural renaissance in drama and music, but they warn that an affluent population will let government action substitute for private conscience in caring for the world's poor and underprivileged. The Syracuse University researchers foresee the United States and the Soviet Union as "the two single greatest military powers" In 1985. But the report adds: "The conduct of these giants will be greatly conditioned by other clu- sters of military force around the globe: First, Western Europe, where the Integration of national forces in a common command and defense will be achieved: second, the People's Republic of China with Southeast Asia satellites." - o - —CHINA WILL TAKE OVER— The report predicted that Red China will dominate Burma, Korea, Laos, Mongolia, Thailand, and Viet Nam. "By 1985," the experts forecast, "some or all of these states, and perhaps Cambodia and Malaysia, will have fallen into the Chinese orbit, strongly influenced by or attached to Peking's policy . . .And the People's Republic of China will hold an important place in the councils of the United Nations." To counteract Chinese Influence in the Far East, the experts predict Japan will again be a world power. They even expect the anti-nuclear Japanese to possess nuclear weapons in another 20 years. The world community by 1985, working through a more effective United Nations, "will use better techniques and more resourcefulness in moderating or muffling international conflict." On the question of peace, the report continues: "The employment of force by any state to reach its political goals will be far more sophisticated and more complicated in the world of 1985: A delicately ascending scale of psychological, economic, and military techniques—developed usually in concert with selected other nations—utilized either to crack morale, disrupt the livelihood, and enervate the power of any potential enemy. Looking beyond earth, the scientists expect manned flights to Mars by 1985. "The exciting possibility of discovering extra - terrestrial life," the report declares, "carries with it the possibility of back-contamination of the earth with some dangerous organism, even though quarantine precautions are planned." Meanwhile, on earth, "The world society will be darker in completion, more youthful in age structure, mote concentrated In cities, and much more mobile," predicts the report. How much of this will come true? We'll have to wait 20 years to find out. - o - —WASHINGTON WHISPERS— The Secret Service has hushed up news of a possible assassination plot on Vice President Humphrey during his recent trip to Orlando. Agents rounded up 20 men considered dangerous. Among them was a man with a high-powered rifle concealed in his pants leg, waiting along the line of march . . .The Kennedy brothers, Bob and Ted, are seething over the mall that has poured into their offices from the gun lobby. Both Senators have received more mail opposing government control on guns than on any other Issue. The letter writers seem insensitive to the fact that their brother, the late President, was shot down by a mail-order rifle. Negro leaders will call for a nationwide boycott this summer of all goods manufactured in Alabama. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People Is now drawing up a list of Alabama merchandise and will urge both Negroe and white to stop buying anything made in Alabama.
