Merry-Go-Round iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinniiiiii By Drew Pearson WASHINGTON - Despite the fact that we now have a Test Ban Treaty prohibiting nuclear tests in the air or on the ground, the level of poisonous strontium 90 on the earth's surface has con- tlnured to rise most of this year. This is not because the treaty has been violated; all our tests show that it's been scrupulously followed by the signatory nations, including Soviet Russia and England. The chief reason is that the poison has continued to float around the earth in the air from the tests in 1963 before the treaty was signed. There has been some testing by China and France, who are not signers of the treaty, and the Chinese iodine 131 has drifted, to some extent, over here. However, if there are no more nuclear explosions, the strontium 90 level should begin to subside by the end of this year. Scientists calculate that by that time 90 per cent of the strontium 90 left over from the 1963 tests will have fallen to the gound, and the remaining 10 per cent will fall shortly after January 1. Thus, for the first time since Hiroshima, the children of the world next year will be relatively free from danger of this poison which causes leukemia In their bones. - o - —WARNING TO CHINA-President Johnson has sent a stern warning to Red China, through neutral channels, that the United States will not hesitate to bomb the Chinese mainland if the Reds enter the war as they did In Korea. During the Korean War, U. S. planes were not permitted to bomb across the Yalu River, which marks the border between North Korea and China, a decision which gave the Chinese what Gen. Douglas MacArthur protested was a "privileged sanctuary" for their men and supplies. Pentagon policy at that time was to avoid getting bogged down in war on the Asiatic mainland, a policy which Gen. Eisenhower also endorsed at the time. But, Johnson has warned the Chinese, there will be no such restriction against hitting China directly now - if they actively enter the war on the side of North Viet Nam. If she should bomb China, of course, it might mean the beginning of World War ffl. The Russians have told us repeatedly OTIGE ALGONA CAB CO. WILL BE CLOSED SEPTEMBER 4-5-6 IWOSfAT.

He said the U. S, had sent similar letters to other allies, so he could not publish the Canadian letters alone, However, this column can report what the letters said. The President did not &sk Canada for full military assistance, but rather for a gesture of support. Prime Minister Pearson refused even a military gesture. He replied that Canada, as a member of the International Truce Commission in Viet Nam, could do more good for the free world be remaining strictly neutral and using its Influence to seek a peace settlement. - o - —RIGHT WING CREDIT CLUB— The right wing seems to be taking over the Diners Club, the credit card organization which permits a club member to charge his meals, his airplane tickets and his hotel bill. Sen. George Murphy, right- wing Republican of California, has just been made a new director of the Diners Club. Alfred Bloomingdale, president of the club, is high up In Technicolor, the organization run by Patrick J. Frawley, who has sponsored extreme right-wing organizations and rallies on the West Coast. An Ironic fact Is that while Mr. Bloomingdale and his friends combat communism on the West Coast, the Diners Club does business in communist Yugoslavia and has announced the beginning of operations In communist Czechoslovakia and communist Bulgaria next month. ' —GEMINI COMPLAINT— The Kremlin's complaint that Gemini V was oribted for the purpose of taking pictures and spying on Russian missile bases illustrates the amazing contrast between the Kremlin under Khrushchev and the Kremlin of today, also how badly our ont- time reasonably friendly relations have deteriorated. Approximately one year ago in Cairo, then Premier Khrushchev told this writer to tell President Johnson that instead of sending U-2 spy planes over Cuba, he should send satellites. "You have been taking pictures of our bases from satellites," Khrushchev said, "and we have been taking pictures of yours. I shall be delighted to sit down with President Johnson and see which has the best pictures of each other's bases." Khrushchev's attitude was that spy satellites were Just part of the game. The new masters of the Kremlin seem to be looking for old bones to pick. - o - -GEORGETOWN DINNER-While Pravda was blasting the U, S, in bitter terms over Viet Nam, and while the Senate was rejecting the U. S. - Soviet consular treaty, a very interesting dinner was held at Georgetown University, the famed Jesuit institution in Washington. This summer, 27 Russian teachers studied English at Georgetown. Though they were communists and presumably atheists, they were taught, fed, housed with friendly hospitality, by their Catholic hosts. On the last night oi their stay at the university, the Jesuit fathers gave a dinner in their honor which this writer attended. It was featured by sincere tributes by each side. Almost every Russian stood up to make a little speech of thanks and many of them presented small gifts to their Catholic teachers, The impression left by this dinner was overwhelming: There would be little friction between Soviet Russia and the United States if it were left to such men as the Catholic fathers of Georgetown University and the 27 Russian teachers who studied English under them and who now will return to Russia to tell of their experiences in the U, S. "IN HARM'S WAY-" comes to the Algeria Theatre Sunday EARLY CASUALTY — Violating orders by charting • direct course toward the enemy fleet while Japanese planes fire upon Pearl Harbor and Honolulu, the cruiser USS Columbia takes a direct torpedo hit in this scene from Otto Premlnger's "In Harm's Way", a Paramount release Sunday at the Algona Theatre. John Wayne Is Captain Rockwell Torrey; Kirk Doug* las plays his executive officer, Commander Paul Eddlngton. The film also stars Patricia Neal, Tom Try on, Paula Prentlss, Brandon de Wilde, Jill Haworth, Burgess Meredith, Franchot Tone and Henry Fonda. A robust drama of war and heroic tradition, "In Harm's Way" is also a penetrating depletion of human beings; men and women caught up In a critical mo* ment of history during and after the attack on Pearl Harbor. -POLITICS AMERICAN BRAND— An interesting political confrontation took place the other day when two candidates for Congress, once vigorous critics of each other, met in Washington. John Montgomery, publisher of the Junction City Union, a Democrat in the rock-ribbed Republican state of Kansas, had run for the House of Representatives last fall and came within two thousand votes of winning. His opponent was Chester L. Mize, Republican, who was elected. The campaign was hot and at times bitter. Neither candidate pulled any punches. However, Montgomery is also president of the Junction City Chamber of Commerce and in that capacity came to Washington to help the Army get funds to build some new barracks at Fort Riley, just outside of Junction City. He paid a courtesy call on his Congressman - formerly his opponent - Chester Mize. The two men were cordial and friendly. Not a word was exchanged about the campaign. They talked about the problems of the state of Kansas. In some countries this could not have happened. But it did happen in the USA. - o - —PAIN AND OPTIMISM— For about ten years a paraplegic World War I veteran living in Honolulu has been writing letters to members of Congress and various others in Washington. The letters have not been complaining or bitter nor have they tried to tell the Congressmen how to run the world. Joe Capsin, though he can't get out of a wheelchair and has spent most of his life since World War I in bed, is one of the most cheerful individuals in the 50th state or, for that matter, in the other 49 states, He has written cheerful letters about the good things in life and the better things in men. Joe Capsin managed to scrape up enough money to take a trip by sea to Washington. He came the long way around, via Europe. When he got to Washington last week he was welcomed by many of the Congressmen who had been his pen pals. Rep. Clark Thompson of Texas helped to secure an ambulance to let him see some of the sights. Fishbait Miller of Mississippi, the famed House doorkeeper, went out of his way to show Joe through the Capitol. Speaker John McCormack, Democratic Leader Carl Albert of Oklahoma, Democratic Whip Hale Boggs of Louisiana - all turned out to welcome the cheerful correspondent from Hawaii who despite years in a wheel chair had not lost his optimistic, pleasant outlook on life.
