Merry-Co-Round By Drew Pearson WASHINGTON - Adlai Stevenson left the world at a time when our foreign relations needed him most. Seldom have we had so many critics; at no time have we lost so much ground in seeking peace, and in prestige. In Japan, the Communist Party has become the strongest in Tokyo, biggest city in the world. Anti-American sentiment in Japan has become so great that the American Ambassador, though popular personally and married to the daughter of the former Japanese Prime Minister, has had to curtail his public speeches. In France, Gen. de Gaulle has threatened to pull out of the Common Market as a squeeze- play to force.the United States out of Europe. He wants all American troops, all American Influence, all American participation in NATO withdrawn. In Germany, Foreign Minister Schroeder has publicly demanded that Germany now get nuclear weapons- The old Nazi revenge party is getting stronger and i& vigorously demanding the return of the parts of Czechoslovakia and Poland which Hitler took, thereby starting World War II. West Germany, built up and rearmed by the United States, is no longer listening to us. England, our best friend in Europe, is desperately weak and her economy will have to be propped up by emergency measures by Washington. In Latin America we have so many critics as the result of our intervention in the Dominican Republic that there is danger of either facist or communist revolution in half a dozen countries. This is the time above all when we needed the wisdom, the counsel, the prestige of Adlai Stevenson, our No. 1 international diplomat. -DROP IN LBJ'S POLL-Former Gov. Alf Landon, of Kansas, GOP Candidate for President in 1936 and still a power in Midwest Republican circles, has a friendly warning for the White House. He has told Washington friends that the President's popularity is plummeting as a result of reports that reserves will be called up and more troops sent to Southeast Asia. Republicans who were all for our bombing operation and original involvement in South Viet Nam are now griping against call-ups and casualties. Landon predicted that if there were an election this fall Johnson's name would be mud. - o - —ARKANSAS HUMOR-Genial Rep. James W. "Judge" Trimble, D-Ark., who enjoys telling stories on himself, was regaling colleagues the other day about a recent campaign in which his opponent was lambasting him for absenteeism. Trimble had been ilTand could not attend a good part of the previous session, but his foe made It appear that the Arkansan had wantonly deserted his Congressional duties. "He let you, his constituents, down," screamed the campaigner. "Why, he missed one- third of the votes on important bills." Just then an Arkansas farmer, who had been listening to the tirade, drawled aloud: "Oh, that ain't such a crime, The country might have been a lot better off if he had missed all of the votes." - o - -NEW YORK'S WATER— When a New York City water spokesman warned recently that f Admiral.

Federal water experts say that unless there are torrential rains by fall New York could well run out of water next winter. Even heavy snows won't help much, because in winter the snows don't melt and run off of frozen ground. Incredible as it sounds, one reason New York has so much trouble controlling the use of water is that it does not have water meters, so the people who use water don't even have to pay for what they waste. New York's best hope, aside from heavy rains, is devising a way to clean up and use water from its own Hudson River. What it wants to do instead is use extra water from the Delaware River which flows by Philadelphia and which keeps the tidal salt water of Delaware Bay out of the Philadelphia water system. But Philadelphians don't like the idea of drinking salt water to make up for New York's lack of foresight and planning. They figure if anybody has to drink salt water, let it be the New Yorkers who could get it right out of the Atlantic Ocean. Another hope - though it is longer-range - is a nuclear- powered plant for converting salt water into fresh water designed by the Bechtel Corporation in San Diego. This is expected to produce fresh water at a cost of only 26 cents per 1,000 gallons - but it won't be ready by next winter when New York's peak crisis is due. - o —SERVING UNCLE SAM-You hear a lot about the difficulty of getting good men to serve the government in Washington because of the financial sacrifices that it entails. Here's an example of what that means: Leonard Marks, newly appointed Chief of the U. S. Information Agency, is giving up a $250,000-a-year law practice, is selling all his stocks, and is even getting rid of his real estate holdings - to work for the government at a salary of $30,000, on which, he, of course, has to pay income tax. Also, in the government you don't get much of an expense account. —REVAMPING THE UN— Adlai Stevenson, just before going to London, was working on a plan to revitalize the United Nations. The chief roadblock to revitalization has teen Article 19 of the UN Charter, which provides that no nation falling behind in its dues can vote in the Assembly. Russia has kept up its regular dues, but both France and Russia have declined to pay assessments voted by the Assembly for the peace-keeping machinery in the Congo and in the Arab states along the border of Israel. Stevenson had been arguing that the United States would have to come around to the Russian position that an Assembly vote is not building on all members. Before the UN Assembly meets again in September, look for the Johnson administration to agree to forget about Article 19 and UN assessments unless they are voted by the Security Council, The Russians probably will agree to this change and perhaps even make a substantial contribution to reduce the debt of the UN. This may prove to be Adlai Stevenson's final great contribution to the United Nations, which he helped to build and did so much topreserve as mankind's best hope for peace. - o - —JAPAN'S EXPERIENCE IN CHINA-Japanese officials have not been publicly critical of the United States over Viet Nam, but the Japanese people have. Privately, the Japanese Cabinet members have argued with top American officials, pointing out that they are embarked on a "no win" policy in Viet Nam. "We had the same experience in China," the Japanese have advised. "The more we fought, the more we lost. You can't invade the Asiatic continent, especially a jungle area, and win. You're licked even before you start." During the Japanese-American Cabinet talks, the Japanese made the following general points: A. They would have nothing to do with our policy in Viet Nam and definitely would not participate in economic aid for that area. R. The Japanese are delighted to participate in economic aid for the rest of Southeast Asia, esiiocially Burma and the Philippines. They are not enthusiastic over getting involved with President Sukarno in Indonesia. C. Japan was insistent that she get landing privileges in New York and the right to fly across the American continent. It was pointed out that Pan American Airways could not possibly fly around the world unless itlanded in Tokyo, and that Japan would expect to have reciprocal rights in the United States. When American officials pointed out that the Italians asked for the same rights across the USA but were denied, the Japanese replied: "But Rome is not Tokyo. You can fly across Europe without landing in Rome but you can't fly across the North Pacific without landing in Tokyo." It was agreed that Japanese- American talks would be held to adjust this problem. D. The Japanese flatly refused to curtail their trade with Red China. In fact, they are pushing E. Japan will support the United States in its policv toward Nationalist China and is quite proud of its relations with Formosa, a former Japanese colony. F. Japan will continue its friendly relations with Korea and endeavor to improve them. The United States officially is not having anything to do with this, though on the Q. T. it has been helping both the Japanese and the Koreans to forget their old bitterness. Next to the hassle over air- landing privileges, the biggest hassle was over fish. This is a relatively minor industry totaling only about eight to ten million dollars a year. The fishing problem is still unsolved. —DYING LAKE ERIE-- " Pollution in Lake Erie has reached such a critical stage that one-fourth of the lake has been devoid of oxygen and unfit Thursday, July 22, 1965 Algona (la.) Upper DM Mo!rm-S for aquatic or human life. So much waste has been dumped into Lake Erie from Detroit, Toledo, Cleveland, Erie and Buffalo, that the percentage of chlorides- is 230 per cent higher today than in 1900. "The water also shows an amazing concentration of calcium, sodium, potassium and sulphate compound," says Sen. Gaylord Nelson, D-Wis., an early battler against water pollution. "Lake Erie is no longer simply water," says Sen. Nelson. "It is a chemical tank. Lake Erie receives two and a half million tons of silt and sewage a year. Some people think it will eventually just fill up. But, before it does, life "will cease to exist in its waters." Meanwhile Lake Michigan is turning into a cesspool, as a result of three steel plants, three oil refineries, and sewage from Milwaukee, Green Bay, and the Chicago area. A study of the pollution of the lake bottom in this area shows that the situation is practically irreversible.
