Merry-Co-Round iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinimiiiiiiiiiniiinnii -CHINESE NUCLEAR TEST-- --FOOTBALL LOSES LBJ-- By Drew Pearson (Editor's Note: Drew Pearson is on a news-gathering trip to Africa. This column is written by his associate, Jack Anderson. WASHINGTON - For years it has been a favorite Red Chinese taunt that the United States is a paper tiger. It really started at the time of the Korean War, when the unprepared U. S. was nearly pushed Into the sea by the North Koreans in the early stages of the war and later had to settle for a "truce" after Red Chinese troops were poured into the battlelines. There is no question that image of the U. S. as the strongest nation in the world was seriously damaged by our Korean failures. Our next big failure, until recently, was in Viet Nam. From the time President Eisenhower promised aid to South Viet Nam until the past few months, U. S. assistance had not matched our words. However, that picture is now changing. U. S. troops and bombs ,are now dealing severe punishment to the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese. Red China has not Intervened despite all its threats. And the only effective defense asocial our DOIIIUS into ueen supplied to North Viet Nam by Russia, not the Chinese. Thus the monsoon season, which was supposed to work to advantage of the communists in Viet Nam, has seen a change in the military picture in our favor. And it can be expected to change even more as the monsoon season ends, The Red Chinese thus are in a delicate position. Their paper tiger talk has backfired. Communists around the world are reported asking whether or not Red China isn't the real paper tiger. This is believed to be a principal factor in Peking's actions against India. .If Peking can force India to make border concessions and at the time settle the conflict with Pakistan, it will be a multi- edged triumph. It not only will help regain some of Red China's lost "face," a highly important consideration in the Orient, but it will humiliate the United States and Russia to some extent—and that also is important to the Peking strategists. - o - WHATS SO REASONABLE, VET SO RICH IN VITAMINS AND 6OOD HEALTH? MILK OF COURSE! ro««l. CO OP •K WA ', <'.'<V Intelligence reports warn that Red China and Indonesia may be preparing a joint nuclear test, perhaps an underwater explosion off the coast of New Guinea. A team of Chinese scientists and technicians has arrived in Indonesia under a cloak of great secrecy. Indonpeia also has been par rot- ing the Chinese communist foreign policy line, even has sided with Pakistan in the India-Pakistan war, thus faithfully following the Red Chinese example, despite a past history of friendship or India. - o - -HUNT BUYING REAL ESTATE- Texas oil billionaire H. L. Hunt has been quietly buying up property between Baltimore and Washington, on the basis that he expects the 40 miles between the two cities eventually to become one continuous city. The old tycoon usually looks over the property himself before he buys it, dressing in baggy pants and soiled shirt so he won't be identified as one of America's richest men. He also makes the purchases in other names, so the owners won't be tempted to jack up the price. - o - -SENATOR QUITS DINERS CLUB-- This column recently reported that the Diners Club, which is controlled by the outspoken anticommunist Pat Frawley, is doing business with Soviet-bloc countries, and that obviously Frawley doesn' t let his anti-communist chest beating interfere with making a buck. It also reported that Sen. George Murphy of California, another strong anti-communist, was a director of the Diners Club. We can now report that Sen. Murphy, after reading this report about the company's dealings with communist countries, submitted his resignation as a director. - o - —INDIANA ART FIASCO— ' "' Sen. Birch Bayh ef Indiana sponsored an art exhibit at the Capitol last week that turned :ioo;out to ^ t a .cultural, fiasco ., . jn - In the^firstyplace he received less than o. dozen paintings from Indiana and was obliged to borrow from the National Gallery of Art to fill up the exhibit. Then the Indiana art turned out to be so wildly modernistic that the exhibit became a joke even in his own office. One assistant prepared two sheets of scribblings, with some modernistic zigs and zags. Another secretary patched together a zany creation out of a brown paper sack and paper clips, then labled it "Filibuster, $450." Two of the actual exhibits, fashioned in metal, looked like pieces of crunched auto fender. Someone suggested this must be part of Lady Bird Johnson's highway beautification program; she was moving the auto junkyards inside. - o - Football officials tried to get President Johnson to open the professional football season last weekend by kicking out the first football at the Washington Redskins game. They pointed out that pro football has become America's second greatest sport, and urged him to participate in the opening day's season. The President tentatively agreed, and football officials tried to arrange the opening Washington game on Saturday the day before the other teams played, as is done in baseball. But TV officials refused to change their schedules. As a result, the President of the United States didn't kick off the football season this year. Perhaps next year, football officials suggested hopefully, arrangements could be made earlier. Incidentally, the Federal Communications Commission is studying the sports practice of forbidding telecasting of an event in the area in which it is held. This has long been done so that local fans won't stay home and watch the football or baseball game instead of buying tickets, thereby cutting down on the box- office take. The FCC will consider whether to recommend that Congress pass a law forbidding this blackout of local areas from TV coverage. in 11111 i H- ~f H-l 1111 H 11 I 1 1 11 I'i I I U ANNOUNCEMENT OF — New Office Opening By HARRY V. HULL, Jr. - INSURANCE AND INVESTMENTS - HARRY V. HULL JR., HUMBOLDT, HAS OPENED A DISTRICT OFFICE. LOCALLY AT THE FOLLOWING ADDRESS . . . 108 NORTH MOORE Phone 29571W ALGONA, IQWA GENERAL AGENT - PIONEER INSURANCE 00, REPRESENTING:— IOWA BUSINESS INVESTMENT CORP. AND LEADING MUTUAL FUNDS - INVESTMENTS --BAN AUTO MASTER KEYS-- Sen. Tom Kuchel of California has drafted legislation to control the unregulated sale of automobile master keys. He has learned that six companies now make and advertise sets of keys that will unlock autos of am domestic make. A Chicago thief, arrested this year, had 17 master keys that would unlock practically all models of Fords. Kuchel believes the federal government should take the lead by barring the mail order sale of keys to unauthorized persons. He hopes this will encourage states to establish stricter controls on auto master keys. - o - --FORGOTTEN STATESMAN— Down in Mississippi, the father of army mechanization, Ross Collins, now 85, has the dubious distinction of being the only eligible ex-Congressman who doesn't draw a pension - thanks to government red tape and his refusal to come to Washington to fight for his pension rights. It was Collins who pushed through Congress the first appropriation for the modern tank and the first research money to develop the Flying Fortress. In those days, the army rode to battle on horseback, and the brass hats were skeptical of the new-fangled tank. But Collins arranged to parade some tank models up Pennsylvania Avenue, then foughtjor the appropriation to mechanTzeThlT cavalry. His foresight was largely responsible , too, 'for the Flying Fortress which became the backbone of America's bomber fleet during World War D. Collins retired from Congress voluntarily in 1943, just after the first Congressional Retirement Act was passed permitting pensions. But unlike other Congressmen who have retired since the act became law, he has never been able to collect his pension. Thursday, Sept. 23, 1965 Algeria (la.)
