fc—Alpone (la.) Upper Dei Molnes Thursday, Sept. 9, 1965 Morry-Gooftound immmmnmmmmnmmmmiiiHn fliimiiiiiniiniiiiiiiniiiimiiiiiiii By Drew Pearson WASHINGTON - Some months ago, a secret Republican strategy conference in Washington decided to give President Johnson everything he wanted to carry on the Viet Nam war. GOP leaders saw it as a "heads we win; tails he loses" proposition. If the U. S. came out on top, they could point with pride to their support of U. S. policy; if we didn't do well, they could have a field day with "Johnson's war." This "secret" decision-which has been no secret to LBJ - is one reason the President has been maneuvering so hard to get Republican approval of what he has done on the public record. This is one reason he has discussed Viet Nam several times with President Eisenhower, and was so pleased to have Eisenhower came out publicly in his support. He also has been using his persuasion on Senator Everett Dirksen and other Republican leaders, telling them it would be tragic to let the war become a political issue when American boys are fighting and dying in Viet Nam. All this also explains his annoyance when prominent Republicans become critical of the conduct of the war; his interest in having a Republican, such as Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge, in Viet Nam to blunt that criticism. Aside from the Republicans, the President also has talked with Vice President Humphrey, Secretary of State Rusk and U. N. Ambassador Goldberg, and asked them to use their influence with liberal leaders to tone down their criticism of our Viet Nam policy. - o - —OUTLOOK FOR 1966— Despite all the President's efforts, political experts look lor the Republicans to use Viet Nam for all it is worth in the 1968: Congressional campaign and later In 1967-1968 if the war lasts that long. With more men being drafted, with more mothers concerned about their sons being sent overseas, they figure the GOP may be able to make the Viet Nam war just as unpopular as the Korean war was in 1952 when General Eisenhower promised that, if elected, he would go to Korea himself to end it. That promised added to Ike's already great popularity and helped many a Republican to get elected on his coattails. So it's easy to understand how Republican strategists can hope for a repeat public reaction in 1966. Note: Though the President is trying to keep the Republicans from gaining any political advantage from Viet Nam, all his concern for bipartisan support is not political. HP Mieves deeply not only that most Americans agree politics should stop at the water's ed^e, but that in fact the U. S. commitment in Viet Nam is bi-partisan, and also that It would be fatal to hope for eventual peace if the communists ever get the idea that the U. S. actually is seriously split over the war. - o - --PENSION FUND PROBES-- Senator John McClelhn of Arkansas is planning to re-open his old investigation of labor-union pension funds. At the same time, Senator Phil Hart of Michigan has ordered a new investigation of company pension funds. Hart has assigned one full-time investigator to check Into complaint that some companies, after mergers, have abolished employee pensions altogether. What most employees don't realize is that, legally, pension money generally belongs to the company until the employees retire. It can I* used any way the company wishes while the money is accumulating. Hart has evidence that some companies have mishandled the money, including one southern supermarket chain. - o - --DEWEY TO COURT?— Tom Dewey of New York has tried hard and often to get a federal job but never was able to make it on his own. He was turned down for the presidential nomination by his own party in 1940, and beaten as the GOP nomonee by FDR in 1944 and again by Harry Truman in 1948. Then he retired from office- chasing to practice law In New York. Now - under a Democratic administration - he may finally make it. There's talk that when the next Republican vacancy occurs on the Supreme Court, Dewey may get the appointment. Another possible appointment, to the next Democratic vacancy, is that of Senator Wayne Morse of Oregon, one-time Dean of the University of Oregon Law School and one of the most noted legal minds in the Senate. Morse, of course, has been one of the President's severest critics in the Senate on foreign policy, and his appointment to the court would remove a very sharp thorn from LBJ's hide. These suggestions do not now have Johnson's approval -buthis friends are talking them up, The next two vacancies, incidentally, are expected from the resignations this year or next of Justices John Harlan and Hugo Black, Black because of age and Harlan because of the Illness of his wife. - o - --WHAT PRICE LIPSTICK ?-- The other day Congresswoman Martha Griffiths of Michigan asked the Revlon Company about a complaint that it had taken advantage of the excise tax reduction to raise lipstick prices. Many complaints to companies - and to members of Congress - either get tossed into a wastebasket or are given a form letter reply. But not this one. A Revlon vice president, no less, got on the telephone to Congresswoman Griffith's office to ask for more details. It turned out the complaint had come from one of her secretaries - and that lipstick wasn't involved at all, but a package of mascara. Revlon had in fact raised the price of mascara from $1.35 to $1.50, but the boost had come last February, before the excise tax cut. So the company was able to quash this threatened storm over women's beauty aids on the floors of Congress. Most of the nation's retailers have passed on the savings from the tax cuts to consumers, according to a survey by the President's advisers. - o - --1X3UD TV COMMERCIALS-- The Ted Bates Advertising Agency, one of the advertising firms which produces those loud radio-TV commercials, has flatly refused a FCC request to tune down the volume. A company spokesman let the FCC know firmly that advertising agencies are not regulated by the FCC and that the Ted Bates Agency will continue to use the most effective attention-getters, including high volume commercials. —MISSISSIPPI BOWING TO LAW— Reports to the Jut Ice Department indicate that the registration of Negro voters has been going surprisingly well all over Mississippi, even by the state registrars. This is the reason the Justice Department has sent federal registrars to only four Mississippi counties. When state registrars do the job themselves, Washington believes it's more economical, more practical, and more constitutional. Before the Negro voting rights law was passed, only six thousand Negroes were registered in Mississippi during the month prior to August 18. The ten days after August 18, over twelve thousand Negroes were registered - all by state registrars. -TAKE-OVER IN GREECE ?-Eighteen years after the Truman doctrine was declared for the purpose of rescuing Greece and Turkey from communism, it looks as if the entire Greet archipelago is eroding politically to the point that it's support will be lost to the United States. The last failure of compromise political forces to for ma government shows that Greece is bitterly, almost hopelessly divided. On one side is 25-year old handsome young King Constantine, whose fairybook wedding to Princess Marie of Denmark was the most romantic event of Europe just one year ago. One the other side is tall, gnarled 78-year old ex-premier George Papandreou, leader of the left-of-center liberal coalition, whom the King ousted in June in a squabble over whether the Greek beer baron Garoufalloi should continue as minister of defense. Premier Papandreou insisted on the traditional right to name his own cabinet. Kifig Constantino disagreed. Papan- dreou resigned. And the King has been trying to find a new prime minister ever since. One tragedy is that the United States has been given some of the blame for the present political erosion. It has been blamed by both the left and the right. The extreme right has pointed to the fact that Andreas Papan- dreou, son of the ex-prime minister, is former head of the economic department at the university of California, married to an American, and until recently, when he joined the Greek cabinet, was an American citizen.
