Algona (Id.) Upper De* Metnet tufcsday, August 17, 1965 Merry-Go-Round iiiiiiiiiiiiMMiiiiniimmiiiiiniiiMiiiffl fliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiitiiiiiiii By Drew Pearson —NON-SMOKER DDRKSEN-- Droll Sen* Everett McKlnley Dirksen strolled Into the Senate press gallery for one of his Informal sessions with newsmen. "Now that I've quite smoking," he said, "will one of you boys please give me a cigarette?" . Several reporters profferred packs of various brands. Dirksen took a long, white cigarette from a pack, examined it closely, then handed it back. He did the same with four or five other brands. "Please, I said a cigarette," he declared. "These are all charcoal." The Senate Republican Leader finally lighted up a non-filtered brand and began answering questions. - o - -TWO ROCKEFELLER BROTHERS— New York's GOT. Nelson Rockefeller is furious at his brother, David, for switching the giant Chase Manhattan Bank from a state to a national charter. The governor considers it a slap at his own Banking Department. What makes the move even more surprising is that David Rockefeller only two years ago was an outspoken critic of Comptroller of the Currency James Saxon. Today, however, the Manhattan president wants his bank regulated by Saxon rather than by his brother, the governor of New York. The controversial Saxon first angered the bankers by breaking up their banking cliques and awarding national charters to many newcomers. But his liberal policies have so stimulated banking that already this year 14 banks have changed to national charters. David Rockefeller revised Ms opinion of Saxon after he caw how Chase's two biggest competitors, the Bank of America and First National City Bank of New York, were thriving under federal control. They had been permitted to engage in new types of financing, factoring and equipment leasing that Chase couldn't offer under New York regulations. Indeed, Saxon's policies have forced liberalization of banking procedures in 37 of the 50 states. - o - —LATINS WORRY— Some of the Latin American foreign ministers are getting restless over the U. S. Involvement in Viet Nam and want to hold a Pan American conference over the danger of war. They argue that if the United States gets into war, they are affected too. In every world war so far, U. S. entry has eventually pulled in every Latin American country except Argentina. Many Latin American nations even sent troops to Korea. War also affects the price of what Laftn Americans buy and much of what, they sell. Therefore, the foreign ministers of Bolivia, Ecuador, and particularly the dictator countries which, incidentally, the United States has favored - have been talking about a Latin American foreign ministers' conference regarding Viet Nam. - o - -HARLEM GLOBE-TROTTER- Adam Clayton Powell, the Harlem globe-trotter, obviously enjoyed presiding over his Committee on Education and Labor when it dug Into Chicago's explosive school system. Martin Luther King, who had been demonstrating against Chicago School Superintendent Benjamin Willis, prodded Powell Into conducting these hearings. Powell, however, needed no real prodding and promptly called Prof. Philip Hauser, an anti- Willis witness, who stated that 95 per cent of the students were promoted whether they deserved to be or not. "I would call that a pushout, not a dropout," interrupted Powell. Superintendent Willis, testified Hauser, was not doing a sufficient job. "Do you think we can convert himr "Well, the bishop tried twice," answered Hauser. "I'm a Baptist minister," answered Powell, "and let me have a try at him, my boy!" When asked if he was dissuaded from holding open com- mittee hearings in Chicago, Powell retorted: "No one can dissuade Adam Clayton Powell from doing anything." Some of his colleagues agree. They have not been able to dissuade him from junketing. - o - —BEHIND THE SCENES— Captured documents reveal that Viet Cong terrorists in South Viet Nam have been ordered to kill or capture pilots who have been raiding North Viet Nam. Both American and South Vietnamese pilots have been marked for murder in retaliation for the raids. . . . The founders of the Quorum Club, which made headlines in the Bobby Baker investigation, are trying to put their club back in business. They would like to re-establish it in a private residence, 116 Schott's Court, behind the Senate. They have tried to keep their move secret by applying for a liquor license in the name of "The 116 Corporation." If the plans succeed, the club will become a hideaway for Senators and lobbyists. . . . The Russians have launched a vigorous campaign to sell Soviet patents in the United States. They are mailing out a free newsletter to large American corporations listing available Soviet inventions. So far, however, the Russians have sold licenses for only one invention -anelectronic sleep inducer. - o - —CAPITAL CHAFF— The President has told friends how his father, Sam Johnson, advised him when he came to Congress that he would be voting "right" If he voted with "Wright." Recently LBJ scrawled the quotation from his "Daddy" on an autographed picture he sent Rep. Wright Patman, D-Tex. Wrote the President along the bottom of picture, "When In doubt how to vote, vote with Wright' - My Daddy." .... Gov. Mark Hatfield, the handsome young Oregonian, is planning to get tough and a bit ungallant in his race for the Senate. It's reported he's going to make Senator Maurine Neuberger, the Democratic incumbent, run under her new name. Maurine is now married to a Boston doctor, Philip Solomon. For a politician to swap names In the middle of an election race would be like requiring Lucky Strikes to change their name to "Lucky Blows" in the middle of a sales drive.... Gen. Lucius Clay, the onetime Georgia Democrat whom FDR appointed to direct industrial wartime mobilization under South Carolina Democrat Jimmy Byrnes, is now Mr. Big when it comes to money raising for the Republican party. After the Republicans made Clay chairman of Continental Can, he became more Republican ' than most Republicans. Bill Nugent To Attend Graduate Banking School William J. Nugent, vice President of The Security State Bank left August 15, for a two weeks' attendance at The Graduate School of Banking at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, August 15-28, which requires two weeks' resident attendance each year for three years to earn the certificate of graduation. Between resident sessions, students are required to do extension work involving problems In all phases of banking. The school is sponsored by the Central States Conference, composed of bankers' associations in 16 mldwestern states. Attendance this year will approximate 1,300 bankers from about 40 states, the District of Columbia. FAN HOUSING (Available with Magnet) • high capacity! • for (he big silos! • unexcelled for haylage!
