Merry-Co-Round iiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiifiminiiiimiiiiflB uiiitiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitiiiiiiiniiiniii By Drew Pearson WASHINGTON - Doctors who have followed the operation on President Johnson say that far more serious than the removal of his gall bladder was the removal of a stone from the ureter. This Is a very delicate operation, while the removal of the gall bladder is routine. We have reported to you previously on the exhausting work schedule the President follows. He is up between 6 and 7, at Ms desk by 9, doesn't eat lunch until 3, working right through the normal lunch hour. After lunch he naps until 5 or 6, then starts work again and doesn't clear his desk until 9:30 or 10. He seldom gets to bed before 1 or 2. This heavy schedule has begun to catch up with him - hence the need for a long rest. Doctors also point out that Johnson does nothing except work. President Eisenhower spent considerable time on the golf course; also played bridge. Johnson has no recreation other than politics. However, he thrives on it. In a sense it's his adrenalin. However, the President was quite frank in telling friends recently that he was tired and looking forward to the end of Congress for a good rest. He will stay In Texas until about December 1, then come back to Washington to work on the budget. During the next session of Congress he plans to concentrate on the administration of laws already passed instead of pushing abignewlegislative schedule, has already told his staff to start looking for top-notch executives. - o - —SPARE THE SPINSTERS- TWO .of Sweden's largest newspapers have launched a campaign to promote the dignity of old maids. Hereafter, the newspapers will give the title of "Mrs." to all women over twenty, married or otherwise. - o - -TOO MUCH FOR VIET NAM— President Johnson's critics claim he is so preoccupied with Viet Nam that he has neglected other areas. Most resented is his policy of giving Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge and Gen. William Westmoreland their pick of the men they need. As a result, foreign service officers who have spent their lives specializing in Latin American affairs have suddenly found themselves assigned to routine diplomatic chores in Saigon. Propaganda specialists have been pulled off important work in Africa and the Middle East, and rushed to South Viet Nam to crank mimeograph machines. Air Force pilots with special qualifications for space research have been ordered to fly milk- run missions over the Vietnamese jungle. Most of these men have accepted the new assignments without protest, because they don't want to appear to be shirking dangerous duty. But their superiors are complaining because of the damage being done to other vital programs. - o - -TROUBLE FOR THE WIZARD- The Ku Klux Wan, now being investigated by the House Un- American Activities Committee, may be headed for a major shakeup after the current hearings end. Robert Jones, the Grand Dragon of the United Klans in North Carolina, Is after the job of Imperial Wizard Robert Shelton. Jones now heads 117Klaverns, which make up about 45 per cent of the United Wans. He also is a clever organizer, and Congressional Investigators say the hooded order might gain In members under his leadership. However, Jones's ambitions to wrest control from Shelton may be jeopardized if he gets too much publicity during the House hearings. - o - —TRADE WITH COMMUNISTS— President Johnson is planning to fight the right-wing head-on in its effort to prevent American trade with communistic bloc nations. The opposition of the John Birch Society and the Young Americans for Freedom against trading with the satellites or Russia is well known. Recently the administration prepared a letter signed by three Cabinet officers supporting the top tobacco companies of the nation in buying Macedonian tobacco from communist Yugoslavia. However, the President plans a much broader step. He will ask Congress for authority to grant most-favored-nation treatment to any nation which gives us reciprocal concessions, Including the communist nations. This will arouse a furor in Congress, but the President is convinced that the communist bloc is no longer operating as a solid bloc and must be encouraged to have contacts with the Western world. - o —SNEAK PLAY MAY FAIL— One mistake Rep. Thomas Ashley of Ohio mad when he tried to slip the bank merger bill through the Banking and Currency Committee without its chairman being present was to include Rep. Henry Reuss of Wisconsin in his kangaroo meeting. Reuss, himself a banker in Milwaukee, is a friend of Chairman Wright Patman and resented the fact that Ashley had surreptitiously called a meeting of the committee without notifying its chairman in order to okay the long-delayed Robertson bill, giving banks certain exemptions from the Antitrust Act. Reuss rushed into the meeting, found Ashley in the chair and, on the basis of seniority, superceded him. But the vote may not stand up. Patman insists that a quorum of the committee was not present and that therefore the vote didn't count. When Congress reconvenes there'll be a knockdown fight over the quorum question - and Patman may come out on top. Many members of Congress who don't agree with Patman's views on banking do agree that sneak plays against a committee chairman are out of order. - o - -VIET NAM DEMONSTRATIONS— Attorney General Katzenbach has reported to President Johnson that the recent wave of demonstrations against the war in Viet Nam not only was partly inspired by communists, but that communists even are trying to persuade young Americans going to Viet Nam to commit sabotage against their own country. Katzenbach said that hard-core communists started planning the "Viet Nam Day" demonstrations last spring, working through college groups they dominate. Among these, he said, were the W. E. B. DuBois Club, the Socialist Workers Party, Young Socialist Alliance, the May 2nd Movement, and the Spartacus Club. It is probable, of course, that many of the demonstrators were not aware they were being used as dupes. It is also true that "protesting" is a popular college pastime and always has been - because college students are at the age when they know all the answers to everything, and they like to make it known. - o - —ANTI-DRAFT MOVES-Students for a Democratic Society and other groups opposed to the war In Viet Nam have a new move up their sleeves which could be very embarassing to the whole machinery of the draft. These groups plan to invade the high schools, not on a mission to tear up draft cards, but to persuade 18-year-olds not to register. This could upset the entire draft system. There is no master list of the 18-year-olds in the United States. The government is entirely dependent upon 18- year olds coming in and registering. Obviously it's impossible to check on the birth records of every 18-year-old in the United States. If you think Chrysler moves fast on the highway, yon should see it in our showroom. AUTHORIZED DEALSR CHRYSLER MOTORS CORPORATION At the rate they're going, our 1966 Chryslers aren't in our showroom long enough to leave tire tracks. How come they're so popular? Obviously, looks are one reason. Our big V-8 engines are another. But then, of course, it could be our prices. We've got five Newport models priced just a few dollars a month more than the most popular smaller cars, comparably equipped. CHRYSLEFT66 Big Win-A-Car Sweepstakes. Come in and register to win a '66 Chrysler, Imperial or Plymouth: Motors, Inc. ' 800 S, Phillips, Algona, Iowa While it's a criminal offense not to register, yet there is no way for the government to check on failure to register other than evidence from a boy's neighbors and the government does not want to be in the position of encouraging neighborhood snooping. This was the practice in Nazi Germany which the United States so vigorously opposed. It's believed that the only way to combat the anti-draft movement in the high schools is to organize pro-draft groups which will urge the registration of 18- year-olds as a patriotic duty. !
