Merry-Go-Round itiitiiiiiiinniHintinnMnninninfflii mmiiiimiimmiiiiiiiimmiiiiiii By Drew Pearson WASHINGTON—Pat Brown, whom ex-Gov. Earl Warren, now Chief Justice, calls the best governor California ever had, found himself in the middle of a Greek political maelstrom last week. In Athens, attending the AHEPA convention of Americans of Greek descent, Gov. Brown was advised by the American Embassy not to visit the King and Queen for fear it would put the United States on the side of the royalists. Then he was advised not to^pall Andreas Papandreou, son of the ex-prime minister and former economics professor at the University of California, for fear it would put him on the side of the anti-royalists. So Brown decided to go off on a cruise through the island- studded Aegean, one of the most beautiful and romantic seas in the world. He was about to board the ship when he got a long distance phone call that the largest city In his state was torn by riots, hate and fire. Brown flew home. What awaited him and what he immediately did about it has been on the front page of every newspaper. Not on the front pages are less publicized questions andunpubli- cized thoughts that went through the mind of the governor as he returned to a holocaust of rubble and ruins not unlike the aftermath in London when the Nazis struck, or Berlin after Allied armies finished their demolition. - o - —NO THANKS FROM NEGROES— Pat Brown, like his friend Lyndon Johnson in the White house, has always been the champion of the Negro. He has fought for integration, equal job opportunity, and he lost votes for the Democratic party and helped elect a right-wing Republican to the Senate last year when he opposed Proposition 14 which permitted housing discrimination against Negroes. Brown knew he was taking Uie unpopular stand, yet he went down the line for the Negro, as did Pierre Salinger, the Democrat who got defeated, because he thought discrimination was wrong. Yet last week, while the governor was a long way from home trying to enjoy a vacation, the Negroes of Lois Angeles stabbed him in the back politically by unleashing the worst spasm of hate California had ever seen. In doing so, they strengthened the right wing which put over Proposition 14, and may have defeated Brown's chance of reelection. They also strengthened the right wing and segregationists all over the United States and weakened materially the man In the White House, who as a Senator passed two civil rights laws, and as President appointed more Negroes to high position than any other man in history, has tried to remedy poverty, Negro illiteracy and Negro unemplo- ment, and who only last week signed into law the most Important Negro voting rights law since Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. Yet because the Negroes of Los Angeles, Chicago, and to a lesser extent, Springfield, Mass., voted their vengeance against the white man, millions of white- men—and they are in great majority—vowed to vote against the President and Governor Brown of California who championed the Negro. Unfortunately, during crises like these, people don't reason. The white man doesn't reason that 60 per cent of the people in Watts, the riot-torn part of Los Angeles, were on relief* that unemployment of Negro youths is the highest in the nation, and that 30 per cent of the children in Watts come from broken homes. And the Negroes who drove at breakneck speed into police lines and screamed hate and shot from roof-tops and smashed windows and set fire to millions of dollars worth of property did not realize they were hurting themselves more than they were hurting the white man. The more stores they burned, the less Negro employment after the terror was over. And the more hate they spread, the harder they made it for Pat Brown and Lyndon Johnson to get more money for Negro schools, better housing laws, more anti-poverty legislation, more job training and more jobs. - o- —HOT DRY TREK FOR UDALL— Two important conclusions developed when Secretary of the Interior Stewart Udall took his divining rod through the drought- stricken East in quest of water. He found no water but he did find: 1. It is not going to be easy for New York, one of the most profligate cities in the world not only with wine but with water, to adjust Itself to the economy of Israel where people use water from the baby's bath to wash the front porch, then use it a third time to water the flowers 2. The big cities of the East, which have seen millions vote for reclamation projects in the Far West, expect Uncle Sam to come up with the dough to alleviate their water shortages. As Mayor Hugh Addonizlo of Newark, N. J., put it bluntly to Udall: "We want to know when we can get the money and how much we can get." "I didn't bring the Director of the Budget or my checkbook with me," answered the Secretary of the Interior. When Udall, in turn, asked them to plug their water leaks and wanted to know why they had postponed planning new water resources for so long, they were not at all sympathetic. In fact, Water Commissioner Armand D'Angelo of New York got so huffy that Sen. Bobby Kennedy who dropped in for the hearings, asked him to smile a little. Commissioner D'Angelo bared his glistening molars but a minute later was snarling at Udall again. - o - —WASHINGTON HOT LINE— By the stroke of a pen, Yugoslavia's President Tito has gypped the American taxpayers out of $46.8 million.' This is the amount that Secretary of the Treasury Henry Fowler figures the United States will los^from the devaluation of the Yugoslav dinar. Uncle Sam is stuck with 183.2 billion dinars, whose value has now dropped overnight from $65 million to $39 million. The Yugoslav government also owes Uncle Sam another 39 billion dinars, which would have been worth $52 million but will, now be worth only $31.2 mil-" lion upon repayment .... LBJ recently sent Vice President- Humphrey on a special mission to explain our Viet Nam policies to the New York Time's editorial-page editor, John Oakes, who listened politely, then went right on writing critical editorials .... The First Cavalry, which has long since switched from horses to helicopters, will make massive use of its choppers in Viet Nam. The cavalrymen will whirl into battle In waves of helicopters, more than have ever been use.d in Viet Nam, swooping down upon the communist guerrillas hopefully before they can escape into the jungle .... The cables from Moscow report that the Kremlin is stepping up the flow of consumer goods to the market. This is a hopeful sign that the Soviets may be preparing for peace, not war .... Senate Internal Security Chairman James Eastland, D-Miss., has questioned the State Department about a report that one of its own guards was responsible for an attempted rape inside the building, state Department officials have replied cagily that the incident is still under investigation.
