Merry-Go-Round iiiiwmmiiwimmtiimmimiiiniHH iliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii By Drew Pearson WASHINGTON - President Johnson has confided to Congressional leaders that he expects to activate some National Guard and reserve units beginning in November or December. In preparation, three National Guard divisions and several smaller Guard and reserve units will get more men, more equipment and more training to bring them up to combat trim. There are several Important reasons the President did not Issue a call up at the time he announced the doubling of the draft call: 1. He did not wish to couple the two announcements and alarm the Russians into increasing their own military strength or their participation in the war in Viet Nam. 2. He did not wish to alarm the U.S. unduly either. He wanted more time to condition the public to the necessities and the sacrifices that face us in Viet Nam. He already Is getting reports of sour public reaction to our stepped-up activities, and some of his Congressional counsel- lors have told him that Viet Nam could mean his defeat in the next Presidential election if conditions continue to get worse and the Republicans switch tactics and begin denouncing "Johnson's War." Note: At the same time that the President Invited other nations to help find a peaceful solution in Viet Nam, he also called upon several of our allies secretly for a token military contribution to the war. He would like to show the world that this is not an American war, but a war of free men against communist tyranny. - o - -FDR'S SONS— The children of .FDR, unlike those of Joseph P. Kennedy, don't;, , always stick together and make every fight a family affair. It has now leaked out that Elliott Roosevelt tried in vain to coax his brother, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr., to help him campaign for mayor of Miami Beach. Franklin was then Under Secretary of Commerce, has now been appointed chairman of the Fair Employment Practices Commission. Franklin pleaded that as a high federal official, he wouldn't be allowed by President Johnson to participate in a local campaign. Elliott promptly put through a call to the President and urged him to let Franklin come to Miami Beach for the campaign. The President, obviously puzzled, said he had no objections. But Franklin still stayed away. In fact, Elliott couldn't even get his brother on the phone until after the election - which Elliott had won. - o - —LOTTERY FOUL UP— A federal grand jury is secretly Investigating Congressman Abrahpm Multer of New York, who organized a lottery in Bermuda a few years ago. At the same time, he was a power on the House Banking Committee, which drafts the nation's banking laws. Witnesses have charged before the grand jury that Multer joined a group of Miami businessmen in establishing a Swiss-style bank in Nassau that could handle hot money through secret, numbered accounts. To manage the Nassau bank, they hired Orin Rogers, who had'been a cashier at the Miami National Bank. According to the testimony, the Congressman and the cashier soon became partners in the Bermuda lottery, which they operated out of their Nassau bank. The lottery was perfectly legal in Bermuda, but, as it turned out, not in Nassau. As a result, the Nassau police moved into the bank and confiscated the lottery tickets. Ultimately, both the bank and the lottery failed. Rogers was sent to prison for other misdeeds. He got tobrood- *lng about his plight and-wrpte a^ 'letter to the Justice Department i complaining that he was being kept behind bars to prevent him from exposing Rep. Multer. A secret erand jury was convened, and Rogers was given his chance to testify. He swore, and other witnesses did likewise, that the lottery tickets were printed in Ohio and shipped to the Bahamas, a violation of U.S. 'Poular as J&iafyTo Serve RW& FOODS At Your Favorite Food Store or Super Market Anderson-Erickton Dairy Co.

AT THE KOSSUTK COUNTY FAIR law. witnesses also charged that $65,000 from the sale of lottery tickets mysteriously disappeared. So far, however, witnesses have not proved that Rep. Multer had anything to do with the printing of the tickets or the disappearance of the money. - o - —AILING SENATORS— Senators Russell of Georgia and Smathers of Florida were comparing notes the other day on their health. Both hare had Illnesses serious enough to make them wonder whether they should run for re-election. But both have discovered that a siege of sickness no longer seems to be a political liability. The public performance of two famous heart patients, Pres* Ident Elsenhower and President Johnson, apparently has changed the public attitude toward ail- Ing politicians. Both Russell and Smathers reported that the news of their illness had brought in a deluge of sympathetic mail from their constituents, pledging to support them for re-election. * o - -GUEVARA'S WHERE ABOUTS^- The latest Central Intelligence report on the whereabouts of Cuba's missing economic czar, Ernesto "Che" Guevara, asserts he has been visiting his home province of Cordoba, Argentina. He also made a stopover, according to the report, in Peru. Guevara is an expert in - using explosives for sabotage. It may be only a coincidence that a series of explosions has occur red in both Argentina and Peru. . Another intelligence report, concerning Cuba warns that free- booting scientists have hired out as germ-warfare specialists to countries that want to develop secret biological-warfare research. Dictator Castro is reported to have hired some of these scientists to work in Cuba. Experts agree that germ warfare formulas can easily be stolen, and the materials can be manufactured secretly and cheaply. A country as small as Cuba has the capability to produce the bacteria and the ability to use them. Dread diseases could be spread t by •; undercoyer .agents ^j^mays I that would make, it difficult to j identify the country responsible. For example, frozen insects laden with disease germs could be scattered over an area. As the insects thawed, they would revive and become crawling deadly weapons. —RAIN WON'T HELP MUCH— It's Ironic that Secretary of the Interior Udall, a native of the arid state of Arizona, has been giving advice to the hitherto water-wealthy cities along the Atlantic Seaboardi His advise has consistently been: "Don't depend on rain." With equal consistency, however, New York and New Jersey cities have depended upon rain. They are now in their fourth year of drought. Secretary Udall's water com- mittee has come up with two long-range alternatives to supply the Atlantic Seaboard with water; 1. Atomic-powered desallni- zation, which is expensive and would take two to three years to inaugurate. 2. Dee'p »wells to tap the fresh-water reserves along the Atlantic Seaboard. Federal geologists ported that there is ample fresh water along the Atlantic Seaboard if wells are drilled deep enough. This would probably be cheaper than atomic-powered desalin- izatloa, — and save your lawn 2,500 sq. ft. Wat $3.95 NOW $2.96 CLOUT knocks out crabgrass fast.
