Mftrry-Go-Round ininmnfflntHffliiiinifliinniRinnn flHiiiHniiiiifiiin.iiiiiiiiHiiiii.ii •y Drow Pearson WASHINGTON - The united States has received another firm warning from Moscow that If we go too far In the so-far-llmlted war In Viet Nam it will lead to war with Russia. The warning was given by Soviet Ambassador Oobrynln In Washington to Averell Harrlman, No. 1 diplomatic trouble shooter for the State Department, and to Richard Goodwin of the White House staff. Dobrynin pointed out once more that Russia has a vital interest In what happens to all communist nations, Including Red China as well as North Viet Nam. Specifically, he said that if the United States, for example, should bomb Red China's nuclear Installations, Russia would have no choice but to go to war. Ana he added ominously that, In such a case, the fighting would not be confined to China - obviously meaning that Russia might strike against the continental United States. His warning presumably was a result of advice to President Johnson by some military strategists that, If Red China Intervenes openly in Viet Nam, we should use that as an excuse to knock out Peking's nuclear capability before China is able to develop effective nuclear weapons. These strategists have argued that, since China's nuclear threat is as serious to Russia as it Is to us, Moscow would not object too much if we eliminated it. Dobrynin's specific warning against such action seems to indicate otherwise. It's Important to remember that, whatever the Kremlin's anger at the Red Chinese, Soviet leaders still have to protect their prestige as world defenders of communism, and that somewhere there is a line which they are unwilling to let us cross. - o - -LBJ IN THE MTODLE" Presldent Johnson described his personal position in Viet Nam the other day as follows: "I am holding off General LeMay with one hand and Wayne Morse with the other." He referred to the fact that Gen. Curtis LeMay, now retired, is one adviser who has long urged that we bomb Red China immediately, while Sen. Morse wants to turn the whole Viet Nam dispute over to the United Nations. The President implied that he himself was try- Ing to take the middle course. In talking to friends of late, Johnson is taking a much softer tone regarding the whole problem of Southeast Asia. He gives the impression of a man who was much led astray by the military advisers who told him to bomb North Viet Nam and that now he would give almost anything to reverse their advice. - o - —U. S. OIL COMPANIES— A U. S. intelligence report from Saigon charges that American oil companies, believe it or not, have been paying taxes to the communist guerrillas to keep their oil trucks from being attacked in South Viet Nam. In the past, American oil interests also have cooperated with the Indonesian government to ship oil from Indonesia to North Viet Nam. - o - - RIGHT-TO-WORK LAWS-- The U. S. Chamber of Commerce has inspired a letter-writ- Ing campaign against changing the Taft-Hartley Act and as a result Congressional mail is about 15 to 1 for keeping the Taft- Hartley provision which permits the states to pass right-to-work laws. There's also been some grumbling on Capitol Hill against the eager-beaver efforts of the AFL-CIO's chief lobbyist, Andy Biemiller, former Congressman from Wisconsin. He is so determined to end the right-to-work law that he has been overzealous. Sen. Margaret Chase Smith, the lady from Maine, is especially irate at Biemiller. It will take 218 votes in the House of Representatives to abolish right-to-work laws, and a secret poll taxen oy labor leaders shows 223 votes for labor. This is too slim a majority to be safe, and some friends of labor want to postpone a showdown for fear labor will lose. However, it looks as if Speaker John McCormack will go ahead with the vote anyway, and by a very slim margin the right-to-work laws will be outlawed. - o - --DE GAULLE AND VIET NAM— Ambassador Maxwell Taylor tried to persuade South Viet Nam's impulsive, new Premier Nguyen Ky not to break off relations with France. Nonetheless, Ky ordered the diplomatic break in a moment of pique over President de Gaulle's neutralism. The break won't interfere, howaver, wtth the 5,000 French businessmen and plantation owners who do a big business in South Viet Nam, sending back to France many of the paper Ameri- Miss Goecke To Wed CO-OPERATIVES PRODUCE ECONOMIC STABILITY IN TODAY'S WORLD it takes more than-buildings, stock, land and equipment to operate a farm successfully.
