Merry-Oo-Round iiiiiniiiniiiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnim diiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiii By Drow Pearson WASHINGTON - Lucl Johnson, the President's younger daughter, has been deluged with fan mall over her conversion to the Catholic faith, and is taking the mall quite seriously. The other night at 1 a, m, she was poring over her mail when the President finally persuaded her to go to bed. She had received 500 letters, of which about 40 were unfavorable, She was upset, however, that people would write to her at all about her religion. "This is a purely personal matter to me," she told her father. Her father joked to friends that It was Dean Sayre of the National Cathedral who was responsible for losing Luci from the Episcopal church. Last fall Dean Sayre made a critical statement about Luci's father, then running for President. Actually, Father Montgomery, the priest who instructed Luci, came to see President Johnson at the White House more than a year ago to talk about his daughter. At that time the President said that a person's religion was something personal to them, not subject to any influence by the President. Father Montgomery said he appreciated this but did not want :to be in the position of converting Luci as long as she was under age. This was why Luci was baptized on her 18th birthday. - o - •NEW YORK WATER FAMINE- Interior Department experts have bad news for New York City. Unless there is an act of God, such as torrential rains this fall, the New York area will run completely dry of water next February. This Is because storage reservoirs are already low, there will be no replenishment in the fall, and no melting snows are run off with frozen ground during the winter. It's an issue sure to play into Republican hands and could help elect Rep. John Lindsay mayor next ^.November. • Democratic water planning has been shortsighted in the extreme. New York's plight, plus the Eastern Seaboard drought, has intensified water solution efforts on various fronts as follows: Saline Conversion - TheBech- tel Corporation of California has submitted to the Interior Department a new conversion plan for fresh water out of salt water powered by atomic energy, which is ready for a pilot plant at the Irving Ranch in Orange County, Calif., and will put water into the San Diego city system at a cost of 26 cents per 1,000 gallons. This compares with about 40 cents per thousand gallons for water brought from Northern California to Southern California. It will take some time to perfect this, but it looks as if the Bechtel plan, financed by Interior, constitutes the most important breakthrough on saline conversion. Sewage Disposal - The Rand Corporation of Cleveland, financed by Interior, has come up with a new filter for sewage, namely coal. It's been shown that coal can take objectionable chemicals out of sewage more cheaply than any other filtering system, after which the coal, especially located near a power plant or factory, can be used for fuel. The phosphates and nitrate residue In the coal makes it more flammable. Pollution Cures - There is a certain amount of irritation inside the Johnson cabinet over the slowpoke policy of Secretary of HEW Tony Celebrezze regarding pollution, As mayor of Cleveland he permitted Lake Erie to become a semichemical cesspool, At a recent White House conference on pollution he remarked that It was chiefly a local problem, Cabinet colleagues privately grouse that Celebrezze already has the power to stop industrial waste from polluting waterways but hasn't cracked down. Note; Though the Public Health Service is ^supposed to protect the health of the nation, its hos<- pita! on Staten Island dumps 7,500 gallons of untreated sewage into Upper New York Bay every day. The hospital also discharges 177,000 gallons of sewage into New York's overworked sanitation system daily. --LBJ'SREADING-- President Johnson is not reading the New York Times. He's not going to feud with the New York Times as President Kennedy did with the New York Herald Tribune or bar it. He's delighted to have other people read it, but he just doesn't read it. Its editorials have been constantly critical of his policies in North Viet Nam and the Dominican Republic. The President chiefly reads the New York Post bulldog edition when it comes out and the next morning the Baltimore Sun. - o —"MURRAY THE K"— Sen. Bourke Hickenlooper, the vigorous Iowa Republican, has protested to Sargent -Shriver against the television program by Murray the K called "What's Happening, Baby," which attempted to arouse teenage interest in the job training program. Sen. Hickenlooper considered Murray the K very lowbrow. But what the Republican Senator from Iowa did not seem to remember was that when the Republicans were trying to raise money during the Eisenhower administration, they used the same Murray the K on television. - o —SOUTH DESERVES PRAISE— president Johnson feels that the South generally has done a good Job in following the Civil Rights Act and deserves some praise. It was predicted there would be rioting and bloodshed in the South, but most of the states have taken the new law in their stride and appear to be trying to comply. President Johnson has a lot of praise for most of the Southern officials - with the exception of a certain governor. - o -IRRESPONSIBLE BOMBING-The proposal of GOP Congressman Jerry Ford of Michi- gan that the United States bomb Hanoi, North Viet Nam, is considered unwise by American strategists. If the United States bombs Hanoi, the communists are certain to bomb Saigon in return. So far, Saigon has never been bombed. If this did happen, the war would be certain to escalate. American public opinion would demand that the United States bomb Peking, and the Chinese government would then retaliate by sending a land army into North Viet Nam to fight the war against the United States and South Viet Nam. So far no Chinese troops have come into battle. This would probably escalate into World War IH, and is what President Johnson has been trying to avoid. I can report that the President and his advisors consider Congressman Ford's proposal to bomb Hanoi highly irresponsible. - o - -CRIME CRISIS— President Johnson will soon appoint a crime commission to do something about the alarming Thursday, July 15, 1965 Algona (la.) Upper D«s Mo!n«-3 increase of violent crime in the nation's capital. It has become so bad that it is embarrassing our diplomatic relations. The Ambassador of Kuwait and his wife were bound in their residence and robbed. Mrs. Gwendolyn Cafritz, famous Washington hostess who lives nearby, was bound and robbed of $250,000 in jewels. A German publisher attending an international press convention, standing momentarily in a doorway to escape a thunderstorm was yoked and robbed, Secretary of Defense McNamara's daughter has been robbed twice in front of her home. Mrs. Mike Monroney, wife of the Senator from Oklahoma who lives near the family of the late John Foster Dulles, will not go out at night to mail a letter at the corner postbox, though she had no fear of walking through Moscow after midnight. Washington bus drivers have been hijacked, robbed and shot at to a point where it may be necessary to put police on the busses. Thanks to the tight D. C. budget, however, It Is difficult to employ more policemen. Southern Congressmen who dominate the D. C. Committee are not eager to authorize more funds for a city which is 54 per cent Negro. Alarmed over this situation, President Johnson wants to draft William Rogers, former Attorney General under Eisenhower, to serve on a crime commission, along with Judge Marjorle Lawson, a Negro jurist on the juvenile court, and possibly Warren Olney HI, former head of the California Crime Commission, if Olney's U. S. Supreme Court duties will permit him to serve. Note: One way of solving crime on the D. C. busses would be to swear in bus drivers as citizen-constables, train and equip them with side arms. - o - -UNITED MILrTARISTS- The "united army" recently announced by four Central American governments, for the avowed purpose of combatting communist subversion and terr- orism collectively, also has the aim of tightening military control over that area. Two of the countries Involved, Guatemala and Honduras, are now ruled by armed forces juntas that overthrew elected governments. El Salvador, fourth member of the new combine, also has a military man, Col. Jorge Rivero, as president. Rivero was voted into office - without opposition and has worked hard, with considerable success, to break the feudal stranglehold which the notorious "14 families" had on his countrymen for more than a century. But the big, bouncy colonel Is getting to like the feel of power arid shows no sign of giving It up in tho near future. The brass hats holding the reins in Honduras and Guatemala know that free, honest elections would be won, respectively, by the Liberal Party of former President Ramon Villeda, who they ousted early last year, and Guatemala's ex- chief executive, Juan Jose Arevalo, who calls himself a "spiritual socialist." By claiming that these men and their followers are "soft on communism," the Juntas have an excuse to put off balloting Indefinitely and entrench themselves as rulers.
