Associated Press News Analyst,
chaaacter is different but the
play's the same. This time it's
President Lyndon B. Johnson get-
ting it. In the past 15 years the
other Presidents got it, too, each
in turn.
House Republicans just chang-
ed the script around this week
when they issued a 33-page
"white paper" criticizing the han-
dling of Viet Nam by Johnson

and the late President John

Campaign Arsenal


No doubt this, and whatever else
they can put together, will serve
the outnumbered House Republi-
cans as a campaign document in
the 1966 congressional election.
They've been looking for issues
and they'll need them.
Verbal Arsenal
In presidential election years
the convention orators and the
main candidates can do all the at-
tacking necessary.

In 1950, two months after the
Korean War began and less than
three months before that year's
congressional election, the Repub-
lican National Committee produc-
ed a 55-page indictment of former
President Harry S. Truman.
It cited the loss of China, the
Communist attack on Korea, and
Truman's about-face on Formosa
as policy failures. The Republi-
cans lost the election.
After Ike
The Democratic Advisory Coun-
cil in 1958 took out after former'
President Dwight D. Eisenhower's
administration with a statement
charging it with "six years of
leaderless vacillation" in foreign
This was within less than a
month of the congressional elec-
tion, which the Democrats won.
With the exception of 1952 -
when Eisenhower carried his party
to victory-Democrats have won
every congressional election since
Score JFK
Just as with Truman, but not
as intensely, the Republicans
climbed on Kennedy's back. And
in the 1962 congressional election
year the GOP National Commit-
tee fired at him from its publica-
tion, "Battle Line."
He was charged with being
"less than candid" about Ameri-

can involvement in Viet Nam.,
Kennedy replied he was as "frank"
as possible, consistent with na-
tional security. As usual, the Re-
publicans lost.
Now this latest Republican doc-
ument, besides broad swipes at
Kennedy, accuses JQhnson, as it
accused Kennedy three years ago,
of a "lack of candor" on Viet
Nam. If this seems a coincidence,
there was a greater one. Two, in
Same Time
In the very week the Republi-
cans chose to put out their "white
paper" on Johnson, he chose to
put out a 27-page document aim-
ed at justifying his handling of
Viet Nam. Perhaps it wasn't such
a coincidence.
What the Republicans had
planned had been known for
days. Johnson got out his explana-
tion ahead of them. And the main
point he sought to make was this:
That American policy on Viet Nam
has been consistent for years. And
no wonder..
The Republicans accused the
Johnson-Kennedy administrations
of inconsistency. Johnson cited
statements by Eisenhower, Ken-
nedy and himself, all promising to
help Viet Nam against commu-
But, almost as if someone had

tipped him the Republicans were
going to charge him with lacking
candor, Johnson in his preface to
the.27 pages declared he was very
"It is essential that our peo-
ple seek understanding and that
our leaders speak with candor."
Then, to prove his candor, he
said what followed was a "clear
definition of America's role in Viet
Few Readers
It's doubtful many people will
read either Johnson's document or
the Republicans'. The Republicans
firmly say they back Johnson's
policy in Viet Nam.
But then they complain - and
even give the impression of being
puzzled-that, while Johnson and
Kennedy sent combat troops into
Viet Nam, Eisenhower never did.
But the answer is simple enough.
All three Presidents felt a South
Viet Nam free of Communist con-
quest was essential to American
interests. But the Communists
didn't begin their war until near
the end of Eisenhower's presiden-
So during his administration
there wasn't much need to send
Americans into action. The Com-
munists didn't start to overrun
South Viet Nam until Kennedy
was in the White House.

It passed a $637-million bill

an education subcommittee.

statistics showing the rapid rise
in college enrollment, and the
mushrooming of colleges and uni-

House Passed It
The House adopted its immi-
gration measure by a 318-95 vote
Wednesday night after beating
back a Republican-led attempt
to limit Immigration from the
Western Hemisphere.
House Republicans had sought
to hold immigration from North
and South America to 115,000
each year. However, the Demo-
crats mustered enough last-min-
ute support to defeat that restric-
tion by a 218-189 roll call vote.
Present laws permit about 300,-
000 annual immigrants to enter
this country. This level would be
raised by nearly 50,000 in both
House and Senate bills.
