MerryGo-Routtd iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiHiiinfliiimiiiiiiHH tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii By Drew Pearson WASHINGTON - Part of the ravag-'ru; hate which tore the City of the Angels apart recently resulted from the strange and paradoxial psychology that pervades Los Angeles. Its mayor, Sam Yorty, is a former Democratic Congressman who strongly backed Richard Nixon against John F. Kennedy in 1960 and who more recently defeated Congressman Jimmy Roosevelt for mayor, largely because Yorty had given the housewives of Los Angeles the right to throw all their trash into one trashcan, instead of having to separate the paper trash from tin cans and bottles, This made Yorty so tremendously popular with Los Angeles housewives that not even the son of the late Presldant Roosevelt could defeat him. But Yorty was so complacent about the problems of Los Angeles Negroes that he ignored a California Advisory Committee report to the U. S. Civil Rights Commission warning of Negro bitterness against the Los Angeles police and also warning that "the social isolation in the Negro community is more complete than it ever was for the Negro rural resident in the South." On top of all this, Mayor Yorty was so unconcerned with the rioting that he went out of town to fill a speaking engagement on the Thursday night the riots were spreading like wildfire, and only got around to okaying the call- out of the National Guard the next morning. He later publicly criticized the governor of California for not sending the National Guard in earlier, but the real fact was that Yorty had not signed the request of the chief of police until 11 o'clock that Friday morning, and without his signature neither the lieutenant governor nor the governor could legally call out the National Guard. The National Guard arrived in Los Angeles that evening. "This is the real Inside on the mayor,of Los Angeles,,whp.after it- was all over wanted to be viewed as having been an alert and courageous public official. But much more important, it illustrates the danger that faces any community whose civic leaders and elected officials refuse to recognize a smoldering volcano of racial bitterness in their midst - and who refuse to act to find a cure before it is too late. - o - —MISSING LEADERS— Only one Negro leader turned up at Los Angeles to try to stem the riots and stop the bloodshed. James Farmer of CORE was not there. Nor was John Lewis of SNCC, or Roy Wilklns of the NAACP, or Dr. Martin Luther King - though Dr. King did arrive after the shooting was all over. Dick Gregory, the Negro comedian, was the only leader with the courage to stand up and urge his fellow Negroes to stop fighting - and he took a bullet wound in payment. If Dr. King and some of the other top national leaders had arrived early to try to help, the bloodshed and destruction might have been halted sooner. - o - -FUND DROP-OFF— Contributions to the civil rights movement have fallen off sharply since President Johnson signed the voting rights bill and since the Los Angeles riots. This is threatening to put some civil rights organizations out of business. As a result, the more militant leaders are looking for new issues that will keep the money rolling in. This is why some of them have started to agitate against U. S. involvement in Viet Nam. - o —SPACE POLITICS— There is only one reason why astronauts and space ships take off from Cape Kennedy, Fla., but the direction of the whole business comes from Houston, Tex., a thousand miles away. That reason is politics. The Chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee which votes the money for space activities comes from Houston. He is Albert Thomas, a very dictatorial Congressman when it comes to money for his home town. •' It was Congressman Thomas who insisted that the Space Agency move from Cape Kennedy to Houston, and who was in a position to block money for the • spaceprogram unless he had his own way. So he got what he wanted. Of course, he did get a little help from another famous Texan, Lyndon Johnson, while LBJ. was still a Senator from Texas. - o - -VIET CONG TERROR- The communist Viet Cong are now losing some of the popular support they've had so long In South Viet Nam. They have raised the tax on peasants to help finance the war, forced young men into military service, and brutalized families that dared to protest. Even women and children have been tortured. Result has been to alienate the villagers to whom they once posed as protectors and friends. Intelligence sources believe the change is due to the military difficulties the Viet Cong is now having because of U. S. intervention. Both South Vietnamese and U. S. troops have been inflicting heavier losses on the communists in recent weeks, in addition to the air strikes that d.srupt their supply lines. It is far too early for us to be optimistic, but it may well be that their continued losses are making the Viet Cong desperate. - o - -COCKY PREMIER- Premier Nguyen Ky, who says Hitler is his hero, is getting more and more stubborn about letting Americans make decisions on the conduct of the South Viet Nam War. He has even threatened to order the Americans out of South Viet Nam altogether. U. S. advisors doubt he would ever go that far, but some consider his threat a blessing in disguise. It will be recalled that President Johnson reversed Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge after Lodge had said we would remain in Saigon whether we were wanted or not. The very next day, Johnson carefully stated that we will stay in South Viet Nam only as long as we are wanted thus giving the U. S. an escape if Premier Ky gets too obnoxious. - o - -GOP ROADBLOCK-Republicans are quietly sabotaging the Democratic drive to fLiish legislation and adjourn Congress early in September. T'le Republicans have nothing against going home, but they don't want to pass any more Democratic legislation. So they have started to boycott committee meetings called to push important bills. The problem has become so serious that the AFL-CIO has assigned its lobbyists to prod the legislators into attending meetings - at least on labor bills. - o - -STEVENSON MEMORIAL-- Qulte a few people have been asking me how they can build a memorial to Adlai Stevenson. Others have been asking how they can hejp;,hasten; our sometimes, elusive goal ,pf,peace. / ....•, ; Peace Is much more important than the memory of a man. But in this case peace and a memorial to Stevenson are synonymous; because Adlai's greatest ambition and his greatest goal were peace. He began working for it even before the United Nations was founded, when he went to Rome after VE Day to help rebuild the floundering wreck which Mussolini had left behind. And he kept working. From the day he was in San Francisco as a staff member of the team that organized the U. N. in 1945, until he went to London to help bolster the U.N.'s shaky finances in 1965, Stevenson kept working toward this goal.

He proposed a ban on nuclear testing in order to stop poisoning the earth's atmosphere and as a step toward peace. The Republicans charged he was incompetent and willing to sacrifice the nation's defense. Eisenhower and Nixon kicked him on the shins verbally. His fellow Democrats urged him privately to change his tune. But he stuck to bJ.s goal. Adlai lost the election, but he achieved his goal. Seven years later the world did sign a nuclear test ban pact. It remains one of the few immovable milestones along the sometimes scarcely dis-cernible path to peace as it winds through the jungles of man's greed and the quicksands of cut-throat diplomacy.
