Merry-Go«Round linillllllllllllllllllllHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIHB uiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiii By Drew Pearson WASHINGTON - With the close of Congress this year, President Johnson believes he will have fulfilled his promise to push through the late President Kennedy's program. He is now getting ready to introduce his own program for next year, has asReQ aiaes ana experts to suggest new ideas for building the Great Society. He will not be content merely with extending and expanding present programs, but wants to find new ways to help the poor and provide a better life for everyone. He is convinced that only government action can solve the nation's domestic problems, is counting on prosperity to bring in enough new tax revenue each year to finance these programs without increasing the national debt. - o - —FBI IN ZONING HASSLE— J. Edgar Hoover, who usually devotes his energies to running the FBI and making speeches, has got himself Involved in a zoning squabble a long way from home. He has written a letter to the mayor of La Jolla Beach, Calif., opposing the building of high-rise apartments in that area. His interest is not as strange as it might seem: Hoover is a regular visitor at La Jolla, for the entire period of the racing season at the Del Mar track. He has good company in his protest - Mrs. Lyndon Johnson also wrote to the mayor of La Jolla opposing high-rise apartments along the coastal area. - o - Lama, for refusing to take orders from the Chinese, has touched off a new widespread revolt in the high Himalayas. Mountain tribesmen have now been joined by Buddhist monks, farmers and other Tibetan patriots who want to fight against the Chinese occupation troops. Food and arms have been parachuted to the rebels by Chinese Nationalist planes. - o - —DECADENT DANCER DANCES— The twist, and other allegedly decadent western dances, have been outlawed in Indonesia. In- donesian go-go girls have been warned to stop-stop. President Sukarno has tenevolently introduced his own special step, a slow and sedate folk dance which he calls the "lenso." However, Indonesia's hepcats are reported meeting in secret for bootleg dancing. They risk a year in jail if they are caught dancing Western style. But for addicts, the twist apparently is worth the risk. - o - — AUTO AILMENTS— Senator Ribicoff of Connecticut is pushing his investigation of the big auto companies, which he suspects have put luxury and horsepower ahead of safety. His investigators are checking charges that some early 1965 Chryslers, Dodges and Plymouth autos were sold with defective steering mechanisms. The company tipped off dealers to the defect, but did not track down purchasers and notify them that they had received defective cars. - o - —NO LADY ASTRONAUTS-- The ladies are still trying to break into the astronaut program. The latest applications have come from women who want to be scientist-astronauts. The job of sifting all applicants has been turned over to the National Academy of Science - which has quietly eliminated all the women. - o - -ACTOR IN POLITICS— California's moderate Republican, Sen. Tom Kuchel, will fly home next week for showdown talks with his supporters who want him to challenge right- wing actor Ronald Reagan for the Republican gubernatorial nomination. Kuchel is reluctant to leave the Senate, where he has become leader of the moderate Republicans. However, he is determined not to let the Republican party in California betaken over by right-wingers. What he hopes to do is to reach an understanding with Reagan. He will ask Reagan to hold to the middle of the road and, if elected, to appoint moderates to key posts. The ambitious Reagan will agree; then Kuchel will stay out of the primary and support Reagan for Governor.

"I want to answer every question you have. This is a matter of deep concern to the American public and I want you to have the facts." . . . "The President made ten times the effort of any ordinary man in exploring the entire Viet Nam problem, "commented Gov. Dick Hughes of New Jersey afterward. Other governors agreed... When Gov. Hatfield of Oregon proposed, from the Minneapolis governors' conference, that the United States turn the Viet Nam dispute over to the United Nations, he got tremendous headlines in the Oregon papers. Apparently he struck a popular chord . . . What Hatfield didn't know was that the Oregonian Democrat who will probably run against him for the Senate next year, ex- Federal Power Commissioner Howard Morgan, has submitted a somewhat similar idea to Senate friends - namely that as a tribute to Adlai Stevenson and a gesture for peace, the Viet Nam dispute be turned over to the organization Adlai had helped to build - the United Nations . . . While the President did not strike exactly the same chord, he later went all-out in offering to cooperate with the U.N. . . . One clay after U Thant sent a favorable letter to LBJ re Viet Nam peace talks, Goldberg held a long conference with State Department officials, got the green light for a second letter to U Thant this one offering to "collaborate unconditionally." . . .Hitherto the State Department had argued the U. N. didn't want the Viet Nam dispute, that U Thant would not welcome it. Goldberg argued otherwise and won the argument.

Johnson got his dams. He also began a long personal friendship, climaxed by Fortas's appointment to the highest court. - o - —MOSCOW VS. PEKING— Most important conference State Department officials were watching last month was the big communist meeting in Bucharest, • where the Russians made several attempts to patch things up with the Chinese. Leonid Breshnev, head of the Soviet Communist party, appealed to the Chinese to bury the hatchet and unite against .American "Imperialist aggression." However, the Chinese delegate remained cool. State Department officials were watching to see whether the Chinese and the Russians got together in some smoke-filled room to patch up their differences. However, at the end of the Bucharest conference, Breshnev and Chinese delegate Teng sat in silence at the head table without exchanging one word or one handshake. This is one reason why the Johnson Administration Is reasonably confident that the Russians will not intervene in the Vietnamese war against the United States. They could not be sure of Red China. - o - .-MALENKOV RETURNS- Georgi Malenkov, who succeeded Stalin as Soviet Premier, then was ousted by Khrushchev, may soon make a comeback.
