Congressman Hosts Algona Family An Algona family, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hinken and three daughters, who spent nine days recently In Washington, D. C. on a vacation trip, are pictured above with Congressman Stanley L. Greigg from this district, during the course of a tour of government buildings. The Hinkens were guests of Major and Mrs. Patrick Mulligan in Washington. Major Mulligan is pictured at the right, and his son, Mark, is at the lower left. The group dropped by the office of Congressman Greigg, and the Congressman and one of his staff, helped the Algona family to see some of the more interesting points in Congressional halls. Congressman Greigg, incidentally, will deliver the dedication talk, here Sept. 11, when the new Algona postoffice is dedicated. Merry-Go-Round IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIHIi By Drew Pearson In a secret, six-page aide- memoire to friendly governments maintaining contacts with Hanoi the United States has declared its willingness to offer North Viet Nam another bombing truce—longer than the first— if the Hanoi government will give some indication that it will talk peace. "The United States government does not rule out the possibility of another and more prolonged cessation of the bombing of North Viet Nam," the Document states. "In return, the United States has asked for some clear indication from Hanoi that there would take place a cessation in the infiltration of military personnel and equipment into South Viet Nam and, above all, a sharp reduction In the level of military activity and terrorism in South VietNam, which is made possible by North Vietnamese support." This secret aid-memoire goes further in offering the olive branch in Southeast Asia than any other peace feeler so far. It stresses that America Is willing to return to the main points of the 1954 Geneva Agreement on Viet Nam. These are re-stated as follows: 1. An end to aggression and subversion. 2. Freedom for South Viet Nam to choose its own destiny. 3. Withdrawal of all foreign military personnel as soon as aggresion ends. 4. An effective guarantee for the independence, safety, and freedom of the South Vietnamese people. If the North Vietnamese leaders won't come to the bargaining table to discuss a peace .settlement, the United States is ready to sit down with them for a conference on Laos or Cambodia, The hope would be that the conference might get around to discussing the Viet Nam problem without loss of face for the communists, who technically would not have backed down from their refusal to discuss a settlement as long as American troops remain in the country. The aide-memoire raised two key questions: Do the North Vietnamese insist on a Saigon government dominated by the communists? And will they persist in demanding that the Americans pull out without talking. If the Hanoi government won't soften its stand on these two points, then a peaceful settlement will be impossible. - o - —VIET NAM WAR VIEWS— That famous three-page statement on the Viet Nam war, which Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield pulled out of his coat pocket and read to the President behind closed doors, was actually a bipartisan document. It represented the thinking on Viet Nam not only of Mansfield but of his Republican sidekick, Vermont's Senator George Aiken, which was one reason Mansfield read it with Republican leaders present instead of revealing it at breakfast that morning before Democrats only. The tall, somber Mansfield of Montana and the gnarled, leprechaun-like Aiken of Vermont are an unlikely pair.* Yet they are Inseparable friends. They breakfast together almost every day, pondering world problems over ham and eggs. Mansfield Is a former history professor at the Montana University, who still loves to browse among books, Aiken is an orch- ardist who still loves to get out among his trees. Mansfield has probably influenced Aiken's view on Viet Nam more than the other way around. For Mansfield has been an expert on the Far East since pre- Senate days as a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. He is something of a specialist on Viet Nam. The Montana Democrat and Vermont Republican have long opposed the U.S. build-up in Viet Nam, They believe the rush of more troops to the scene will hurt, not help, the prospects for a peaceful settlement. In short, they consider it pure folly to transform the Vietnamese war into an American war. They are appalled at the way President Johnson has gone along with his military advisers; has made it appear that his latest build-up is a peace move. First, he hinted of a big mobilization, then he announced a modest call-up coupled with another appeal for negotiations. His critics were so relieved at his moderation that they almost unanimously applauded the move, scarcely noting that it was a further build-up. This is the real reason Mansfield, with Aiken's quiet encouragement, put their views in writing and read them to the President during his closed- door conference with Congressional leaders. As LBJ's leader in the Senate, Mansfield feels he cannot express his views publicly. But insiders have learned that Aiken often says on the Senate floor what Mansfield is thinking in private, - o - -HEAD START IN MISSISSIPPI- Mississippi Congressmen have asked Sargent Shriver, head of the anti-poverty program, to cut off funds for the largest Head Start program in Mississippi on the ground that the money is being used to finance the civil rights movement. Sen, John Stennis, D-Miss., claimed that some of the money had fiijaao«d "freedom marches" on Jackson. Rep. William Colmer and John Bell Williams were also caustic in their criticism. What they haven't mentioned is how Mississippi bigots have been harassing the children who the Head Start program is trying to keep in school. The Grenada Milk Company of Mayersville, Miss., for example, refused to deliver milk to classes in nearby Rolling Fork. The Borden Company demanded a written contract before it would supply milk for the children. A white plantation agent trailed a bus that was picking up youngsters for the Rolling Fork classes. He intimidated several of the children from getting on the bus. While children were being tutored in the home of a Rolling Fork Negro, Sidney Alexander, a green Ford started circling the home. Suddenly a shot rang out, a bullet thudded into the house. The Ford hastily pulled away. A Negro teacher trainee, F.L. Smith, was thrown into the Warren County jail for allegedly failing to yield the right-of-way. The jailer kept him locked up, claiming he couldn't reach Judge L. B. Dillon, who would have to set bail. Meanwhile Mississippi Congressmen demand that federal funds for this program be cut off. - o - —GOVERNMENT POLLUTION-- Rep. Robert E. Jones, D-Ala., has requested six federal agencies to follow the example the U.S. government is supposed to set for others by stopping the pollution of our waterways. The six pollution contributors are the Treasury Department, the Federal Aviation Agency, the Agriculture Department, the Army, Navy, and Air Force. Meantime, a survey by Jones Subcommittee on Natural Resources and Power (part of) the Government Operations Committee) shows that 963 Federal installations of the above agencies and others each dump an average of 3,000 gallons per day of untreated wastes into rivers and streams.

It was developed by the Interior Department in cooperation with the Bechtel Development Corporation of California, and produces fresh water from the ocean at the record low cost of 26 cents per thousand gallons. This compares with a cost in 1952 of $5 per thousand gallons and in 1965 of $1. The desalinization plant which President Johnson ordered from Point Loma, Calif., to Guantanamo during the 1964 row with Castro produces fresh water at a cost of $1 per thousand gallons.
