M«rry.Oo.Round WASHINGTON - Civil rights Investigators ate quietly collecting evidence that several Southern school districts, which pledged to integrate, are making only a token effort. This could embarrass President Johnson, who now appears to have been premature in boasting that almost all Southern schools were complying with the Civil Rights Act. The President brought pressure about Southern school leaders to submit voluntary desegregation plans. He demanded daily progress reports so he could check for himself which districts had not complied. Shortly after the schools opened, he happily announced that all but 70 Southern school districts had agreed to desegregate. Now It looks as if their paper plans aren't being carried out in practice. Red tape and intimidation have been used to keep Negro parents from sending their children to white schools. The guess is that less than 10 per cent of the Negro pupils In the eleven Southern states have been integrated. - o- --DOMINICAN POL1TICKING- Juan Bosch, the ousted Dominican president whom the rebels tried to return to power, recently went back to the Dominican Republic. Earlier, during the revolution, the United States had twice offered to fly him home if he would use his influence to stop the fighting and bring peace to his country. But he flatly refused. Not until the shooting had stopped did he return indicating he is more interested in politicking than in saving Dominican lives. One of the big questions now is how much trouble Bosch will stir up. President Johnson doesn't want to pour money into rebuilding the country only to lose It all In another outbreak of chaos, so U. S. aid has been slowed up pending an appraisal of what's likely to happen. - o - -CONGRESSIONAL TEMPERS- Congress has been in session so long that the weary members are beginning to snap and snarl at each other. Sen. Allott of Colorado, for example, raised some objections the other day to the highway beautificationbill. Interrupting, Sen. Ribicoff of Connecticut said he hoped the Senate would act responsibly. Allott heatedly complained that Ribicoff had accused him of being irresponsible. Allott pointed out petulantly that it was against the Senate rules for one Senator to impute anything "unworthy or unbecoming" to a fellow Senator. Than In the next breath, Allott suggested that Ribicoff might be "out of his mind." - o- --SINS OF THE FATHER- The John Birch Society's Washington representative, Reed Benson of Utah, has accused President Johnson of treason for selling wheat to Russia. In 1955 Benson's father, Ezra Taft Benson, then Secretary of Agriculture under President Elsenhower, came back from Russia to urge the sale of surplus wheat behind the Iron Curtain. Agriculture Department files show that Benson strongly favored wheat sales to Russia as one way of cutting down the tremendous surplus, Now Reed Benson calls it treasonable to do what his father recommended. Under Ezra Taft Benson, incidentally, government bins were loaded to the bursting point with $9 billion worth of surplus commodities, Secretary of Agriculture Orville Freeman has managed to reduce this surplus by $2,6 billion. - o- —SUDSY DETERGENTS— Congress, in writing the water pollution bill, accepted the word of the big soap manufacturers that they would develop detergents that would not clog the nation's steams with their foaming action. However, government scientists, after testing the new detergents, claim they still will produce the everlasting suds, As a result, Sen. Nelson of Wisconsin will introduce special legislation next year to compel the soap industry to produce sudsless detergents. --LBJ MISSES PUNT-Football officials asked President Johnson literally to kick off the professional football season last weekend by booting the first football at the Washington Redskins' game. The President was willing, and officials tried to arrange the game on Saturday, the day before the other teams play - the same as the baseball opener. But the TV executives refused to change their schedule. Result: there was no opening game and no kick-off ceremony by the President. - o - —THE QUIET CONGRESSMAN-While others have monopolized the spotlight, a quiet Minnesota Congressman by dint of sheer drudgery has fashioned some of this year's real legislative miracles. He is Rep. John Blatnik, Democrat, whose gentle manner is merely the moss on a character of granite. For in the push and press of the back rooms, he has been as rugged a political infighter as he was a World War n commando who parachuted behind enemy lines into Yugoslavia. The mild and modest Blatnik, often working in his shirtsleeves late into the night, has handled the tedious, unspectacular legislation that seldom makes headlines. He spent four months, for example, merely hammering out the Senate-House differences in the complex water pollution bill. Working with him line by line, equally without glory, was a Senate stalwart: Maine's cheerfully able Sen. Edmund Muskie, Democrat. They shaped compromises that actually improved both the Senate and House measures, thus producing more effective legislation that' will . clean" "America's streams of contamination. Blatnik also piloted the difficult rivers and harbors bill through the House, carefully balancing the public interest against the political interests of his colleagues. He was assisted by another unsung hero of the back rooms, Rep. Robert Jones, one of the few surviving Democrats in the Alabama delegation. Together, they fashioned a far-reaching, $2 billion program to control floods, tap new water resources, open new channels to navigation, and battle beach erosion. Blatnik also did the painstaking job of consolidating the accelerated public works projects and the area redevelopment program into a new Economic Development Act for distressed areas. This will mean jobs for thousands of unemployed workers over the next five years. It was John Blatnik, too, who led the backstage fight to strip the Rules Committee of its arbitrary powers, thus breaking the legislative logjam in the House. The irony is that the underprivileged people, whom Blatnik has helped most, probably understand least what he has accomplished for them. Recent Bride Honoree At Ringsted Event SENECA - M rs. George Owens, nee Colleen Smith, was honored at a post-nuptial miscellaneous shower last Saturday evening at the St. John's Parish hall rural Ringsted.
