MerryGo-Round iiiiiniiniiiinifinnnmHiinnimiffln By DI*QW Pocmon WASHINGTON - A series of grim White House conferences has been held since Secretary McNamara returned from Saigon. McNamara reported that despite our bombings, the situation is getting worse. We have failed to cut off supplies to the Viet Cong or even hamper their operations effectively. The South Viet Nam army is almost useless; the Saigon government is 'still inept and unpopular. But none of this was news McNamara's findings only corroborated a long series of alarming reports which the White House had been receiving, and which had led to a decision to go all out in Viet Nam even before he returned to Washington. This hard-line decision had even caused Averefl Harriman to give a warning to the Soviet Union. When Russian leaders rejected all suggestions that Moscow help do something to persuade North Viet Nam to negotiate, and again told Harriman that Russia will intervene in North Viet Nam if the United States goes "too far," Harriman told the Russians that the U. S. also will take action if Russia goes too far in helping North Viet Nam. He specifically referred to the Soviet bombers, missile bases and anti-aircraft missiles being given to Hanoi. So far U. S. pilots have had ' little interference from these Soviet gifts, and no effort has been made to destroy them. But should Moscow intensify its assistance to the point that it would cauSe us trouble, we are ready, to take all necessary steps to meet it. - o - —DECISIONS IN VIET NAM— The situation in Viet Nam is much different from what we faced in Korea. The South Koreans were willing to and did fight against the northern in- va'diEOCjSTSiThere'Were-firm battle r liBiigt •"''The'-civUianT)opulationV^ cooperated with U. S. forces. We were not fighting in trackless jungles in which the natives were peasants by day and guerrillas by night. Thus the decisions to be made in this war are different. One of them is what to do about the Saigon government, which has little authority and less respect. Before South Viet Nam can be unified, the' present government must be replaced by one which will command the loyalty of the South Vietnamese. So far nobody has any good ideas on how this can be done. Another question is whether American troops should simply occupy the whole country, in effect making it a U. S. colony for as long as necessary to defeat the communists. A third is what to do about the South Vietnamese army; whether it should be dissolved entirely, or its troops used under U. S. command. Fourth is how we can keep China from getting directly involved, as well as Russia. Implicit in all these problems is long-term occupation of South Viet Nam, perhaps for ten years; the need for several hundred thousand American troops at a minimum; an enlarged draft call with stiffer training for draftees; increased taxation; and curtailment of the President's Great Society program. The situation is so serious that one key White House confidante emerged from the first day's huddle to predict, "We will be in a real war within 30 days." - o - —JAPANESE WARNING— Members of the Japanese cabinet in Washington during some of the critical White House discussions strongly advised the U. S. to get out of Viet Nam entirely. 4They ^recalled what had happened to Japan in its adventure in China before and during World Warn. "The harder we fought the more we lost," they said. "You maflflalTdi" '•*<"*"* : *^v The Japanese also reported on how their people at home are fearful that the Viet Nam war will escalate into a major conflict which, might bring bombing oftae U.-S. base on Okinawa and eventually suck in Japan.

GOLDBERG— When Congressman Paul Fino of New York, Republican, was asked how the Arab countries would react to Justice Goldberg's becoming the first American Jew to serve as ambassador to the U. N., Flno replied: "I don't think it will affect the Arab countries. They vote with Russia on everything anyway." - o - -RIGHTS OF KINGS-- Klng Constantine of Greece is usually a delightful young man. But he is only 25 years old, and his youth may have led him to make a serious error in judgment. The Issue involved in the ouster of former Prime Minister Papan- dreou was a simple one-whether the government elected by the people should control the army, or whether the army should control the government. The lessons of history are plain enough. Except for the primitive country of Ethiopia - and there are rumblings there - dictatorial monarchies all over the world have vanished. The kings or queens who still hold their thrones in comfort are those who have been willing to surrender their right to make government decisions. In Greece, King Constantine decided with the army to support a defense minister the army wanted, Beer Baron Garoufalias, against Papandreou's decision that he should be fired. This not only caused Papan- dreou to resign, but has led to street riots and bloodshed. King Constantine and the army may be able to control the people temporarily, but it will mean that they also must take over the government, abandoning any pretense that Greece has apopu- lary-elected democratic system. This almost inevitably will lead to a swing to the left and perhaps a communist takeover in which case King Constantine will be out of a job. - o - -SECRET DEAL IN CONGRESS- One of the most Important secret deals on Capitol Hill has been patched up by the Southern Congressmen and Northern liberals. It has been agreed that : if Southerners will support labor in getting rid of the right-to- work laws, labor, in turn, and Northern liberals who are pro- labor, will help the Southerners defeat the effort to unseat the Mississippi Congressmen whose seating has been challenged because Negroes were not allowed to vote in their election. - o - —6,000 FOR MEDICARE- HEW Secretary Celebrezze expects to employ only 6,000 new clerks to handle the new medicare program.

Last fall when Bobby Kennedy resigned as Attorney General to run for the Senate, Johnson offered Fortas that Cabinet post. Fortas declined. Speculation at the time was that his declination was due to his desire to sit on the Supreme Court instead. However, following Goldberg's resignation, LBJ immediately offered Fortas the vacant seat. Fortas said no, and gave as his excuse the fact that he had promised some young lawyers who had recently joined his law firm, Arnold, Fortas and Porter, that he would remain with the firm. He informed the President that he could not back out on his pledge. Thursday, July 29, 1965 Algona (la.) Upper Dot Molr»M-S ENDS SAT.

The United States will be short of both for some years to come. —FORTAS SAYS NO-In one of the few such cases in history, a lawyer has turned down appointment to the United States Supreme Court.
