Rep ublicians Bid

for

Place in Southern Politics

WASHINGTON (A)-To Repub-
licans, this looks like their year
of opportunity in the South.
Based on reports from the area,
J. Drake Edens Jr., a vice chair-
man of the GOP National Com-
mittee, said in an interview that
he believes the party has reason-
able chances of electing governors
% in South Carolina, Georgia, Flor-
ida, Alabama and Arkansas.
And, he said, he expects a pick-
up of several Senate seats from
seven contests in five states--
Virginia, South Carolina, Missis-
sippi, Alabama and Tennessee.
Partisan political predictions are
always optimistic and to be dis-
counted to some extent. Yet it is
plain that the long-time political

order in the South is undergoing
profound changes.
More and more industrial plants
are going up in what were once
cotton fields. More and more Ne-
groes are voting. A younger gen-
eration of voters is not swayed
by the same appeals that moved
their fathers.
There is significance in the fact
that Republicans are talking ser-
iously of winning in states that
haven't elected a Republican gov-
ernor since Reconstruction days.
It points up the changes.
If the election in November does
in fact produce GOP successes in
two or three major races, 1966
might well go down in American
history as the year the two-party

system flowered in the long one-
party South.
Feeding the Republican opti-
mism are a number of factors, in-
cluding Democratic internal prob-
lems in several states.
But fundamental to it is the
conviction that large numbers of
once down-the-line Southern
Democrats who voted Republican
in the 1964 presidential election
are now ready to move all the
way into the Republican party.
In 1964, President Lyndon B.
Johnson lost Alabama, Georgia,
South Carolina, Mississippi and
Louisiana. And according to Re-
publican soundings with which
some prominent Southern Demo-
crats are in public agreement,

Johnson would run no better now.
Here is a rundown on the Re-
publican view of the situation in
the Southern states where their
optimism is centered:
SOUTH CAROLINA - Sen.
Strom Thurmond, running for re-
election, heads a ticket for top
offices made up of men who are,
like Thurmond, ex-Democrats
turned Republican. Thurmond has
the reputation of being the state's
best vote-getter and the GOP has
no doubt of his re-election over
Bradley Morrah, the Democratic
nominee.
Marshall Parker, a state sen-
ator, is the Republican candidate
for the other Senate seat in op-
position to Ernest F. Hollings, a

former governor. Hollings took the
Deniocratic nomination from Sen.
Donald S. Russell in a hard-
fought primary.
The Republicans figure Demo-
cratic bitterness left over from
that scrap will help Parker, and
they regard as a political liability
for Hollings his friendship with
Sen. Robert F. Kennedy (D-NY).
John P. Rogers, a state legisla-
tor, is trying to unseat Demo-
cratic Gov. Robert E. McNair. The
Republicans believe they can use
against McNair the same issue
that weighed heavily in Russell's
primary defeat-that Russell re-
signed as governor and let McNair,
then lieutenant governor, appoint
him to the Senate.

GEORGIA - The Republicanj
candidate for governor is Howard
H. Callaway, a young, wealthy-
textiles-congressman who is an-
other ex-Democrat. The Republi-
cans think he will be a well-
established favorite by election
day against whoever the Demo-
crats nominate. There are six can-
didates for the Democratic nomi-
nation.
FLORIDA-The Democrats had
themselves a hard primary fight,
climaxed by defeat of Gov. Hay-
don Burns in a ruh-off primary
by Mayor Robert King High of
Miami. The GOP bet is that the
scars from this will not be healed
by November, and that friends of
Burns will help their nominee for

governor.
ALABAMA-This is something
of a special situation due to Gov.
George C. Wallace's coup in win-
ning the Democratic nomination
for governor for his wife, Lurleen.j
No Republican can be more anti-
Johnson than Wallace.
Before the Democratic primary,
the Republicans had settled,
though not officially, on Rep.
James D. Martin for governor
and were pretty confident he could
win.
There has been some palaver
over whether to change signals,
but as of this time the prospective
line-up is Martin for governor and
John Grenier for the Senate
against Democratic Sen. John

Sparkman.
ARKANSAS-Winthrop Rocke-
feller, who got 44 per cent of the
vote in a losing effort against
Gov. Orval E. Faubus in 1964, is
again the prospective Republican
nominee for governor although he
has nominal opposition in the pri-
mary July 26.
Faubus is not a candidate for
re-election and there are eight
Democrats bidding for their
party's nomination.
Rockefeller is a brother of New
York's Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller.
He moved to Arkansas 13 years
ago. On a visit here, Rockefeller
told newsmen that, with the cam-
paign experience he gained two
years ago, he believes he can win.

Committee
Settlement

Gives

Strike

To

Johnson

WASHINGTON (M--The Senate,'
Labor Committee decided yester-
day to leave it to President John-
son to order striking machinists
back to work on five major air-
lines.
After a stormy four-hour ses-
sion behind closed doors, the pan-
el voted 11 to 5 for a back-to-
work plan that would permit three
cooling off periods, each 60 days
long, on order of the President.
The measure also would cover
any other airlines that face strikes
within the next six months.
Emergency Board
Under existing law, Johnson has
appointed an amergency board to
put off for at least 60 days a
strike threatened against Ameri-
can Airlines.
k- The new plan was proposed by
Sens. Jacob K. Javits (R-NY)
and Robert P. Griffin (R-Mich).
Sen. Lister Hill (D-Ala), the
chairman, said the committee
would meet again today to put
the finishing touches on the meas-
ure.
E It supplanted a proposal by Sen.
Wayne Morse (D-Ore) that Con-
gress itself order the strikers back
to work for six months of media-
tion.
Direct to Senate
Morse declared he would take
his case today directly to the Sen-
ate, bypassing the committee.
"Congress, I think, has the clear
duty to 'act," Morse said, "not
ask somebody else to act, but act
itself."
Earlier, the committee rejected
the course favored by the admin-
istration, voting down a resolu-
tion calling for negotiations with
congressional scrutiny.
Reporting defeat of the admin-
istration's wait-and-see approach,
Hill said simply: "It doesn't do
anything."
Hill said the vote against that
plan was 10 to 5.
The action, at a three-hour clos-
ed committee session, put before
the panel Morse's bill to order the
strikers back to work for six
months, with federal mediators
seeking a contract settlement -,
and reporting to Congress if there
is none within five months.

Senators Object To
Secret Service Chief
WVriting in Opinions
WASHINGTON UP) - A letter
purportedly written by the direc-
tor of the Central' Intelligence
Agency caused a furore yester-
day in the Senate. The letter
praised a newspaper editorial en-
titled "Brickbats for Fulbright."
Senate Democratic Leader Mike
Mansfield of Montana called it'
"a most serious matter" and ex-
pressed hope all senators "would
take cognizance of it."
Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy (D-
Minn), a member of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee,
brought up the letter which he
said had been sent to the St.
Louis Globe Democrat and was
signed by Richard Helms, the new
director of the CIA.
The CIA declined to say any-

WASHINGTON P)-Prime Min-
ister Harold Wilson headed for
Washington yesterday for a one-'
day conference with President
Johnson focusing on Britain's fi-
nancial plight and prospective re-
trenchment on her overseas mili-
tary commitments.
Viet Nam and East-West rela-
tions also were on the prospective
discussion list for Wilson's fourth
visit to the U.S. capital since be-
coming prime minister 21 months
ago.

Critics of U.S. Viet Nam policy
demonstrated at London Airport
as Wilson took off. "Tell Johnson
to quit Viet, Nam" and "Speak
for us, not U.S.," were among slo-
gans directed at the British lead-
er.
At Washington's Andrews Air
Force Base, Secretary of State
Dean Rusk headed the official
greeting delegation for Wilson's
entourage, arriving in a Royal Air
Force plane.

thing about the matter.,
The Senate Foreign Relations
Committee announced that Helms
would testify at a closed session
today.
The editorial dealt with the
Senate's action side-tracking an
effort by the foreign relations
group-headed by Sen. J. W. Ful-
bright-to gain a role in Senate
supervision of the intelligence
agency.
The first paragraph of the edi-
torial read: "Sen. J. W. Fulbright

Three U.S. aircraft were shot
down near Binh City in Nghe An

on North Viet Nam, Peking's New

ed planes were captured, the agen-
cy added in its dispatch from Ha-

by the Senate."
The letter, over Helms' signa-
ture, said "I want to let you
know of my pleasure in reading
the editorial 'Brickbats for Ful-
bright' in the Globe Democrat of
July 18.
"It reflects so well your paper's
policy of 'printing the news im-
partially, supporting what it be-
lieves to be right and opposing
what it believes to be wrong, with-
out regard to party politics'."
Fulbright wondered if Helms
"misconstrued this vote of confi-
dence" as removing restraints
from the CIA director in dealing
with domestic matters.
"I'm more than a little sur-
prised that the director of the
silent service has seen fit to write
such a letter," Mansfield said.
McCarthy called Helm's letter
"entirely out of order," and said
the CIA director "owes an apology
to every member of the Senate."

U.S.-British relationship with a
call at Washington about every
six months, today's talks carry
added significance because of
Britain's financial plight and the
Viet Nam situation.
Severe Crisis
An island nation that has ex-
perienced continued difficulty
since World War II but is regain-
ing her once-strong financial posi-
tion, Britain is now in a partic-
ularly severe crisis from a bal-
ance-of-payments drain.
This in turn affects her ability
to-keep up her traditional defense
roles in foreign lands.
The United States has an in-
terest in a strong pound along-
side a sound dollar in internation-
al finance-and in Britain's main-
taining abroad a security role com-
plementing America's.
Boost Pound
Britain has more than 50,000
troops in West Germany and about
50,000 in Malaysia, though none
directly in the fighting in nearby
Viet Nam.
Secretary of the Treasury Hen-
ry Fowler and Undersecretary of
State George W. Ball have been
in Europe examining, among other
things, how to help prop up the
shaky pound.
At home, Wilson has ordered an
emergency belt-tightening pro-
gram.
Wilson also was expected to
tell Johnson about his visit to
Moscow last week. Prime Minister
Alexei N. Kosygin rebuffed a Wil-
son bid to get peace talks going
on Viet Nam.
Supports U.S.
Wilson has generally supported
Johnson's policy against his Brit-
ish critics, though he publicly dis-
approved of U.S. air strikes at Ha-
noi-Haiphong oil installations.
Another potential discussion
item here was the effort to im-
prove relations with Communist
countries. London has suggested a
possible initiative by the North
Atlantic Allies to reduce cold war
tensions in Europe.
Johnson -invited Wilson to stay
overnight at the President's guest
house, Blair House, then hold
working sessions morning and aft-
ernoon at the White House.
The prime minister tentatively
scheduled a news conference late
this afternoon. Then he flies to
Ottawa for an airport chat with
Canada's prime minister, Lester
Pearson, while en route back to
London.

The pilots were not identified.
Reports from Saigon said that
U.S. and Vietnamese pilots have
recently struck Communist posi-
tions in South Viet Nam with new
fury.

Gen. Westmoreland, the U.S.
commander in Viet Nam, said in
'an interview: "The enemy has lost
much equipment and it appears
that he's demoralized." But, he
added that the Communists have
large concentrations of troops else-
where in Viet Nam and "there is
no indication their persistence is
waning."
"If they are stopped in one
place," he said, "they'll try anoth-
elr."
They were trying chiefly at the
moment in hit-and-run attacks.
The biggest of these reported was
a guerrilla raid before dawn on a
village 18 miles from Saigon.
334 Dead
Military spokesmen in Saigon
announced 334 allied servicemen
were killed last week. This total,
headed by 195 South Vietnamese,
compared with an overall figure
of 279 in the week of July 10-16.
Communist dead were listed at
1,272, compared with 1200 in the
previous week. Their combat
deaths since Jan. 1, 1961, are now
reported to total 29,196.
In addition to the 136 Ameri-
cans killed, 578 U.S. servicemen
were wounded and 14 missing or
captured last week. That compar-
ed with 65 killed, 368 wounded
and none missing in the week of
July 10-16.
Fresh support for the Ameri-
can charge that the North Viet-
namese infiltrated across the six-
mile-wide border zone that is sup-
posed to be demilitarized under
the 1954 Geneva agreement came
from a warrant officer who sur-
rendered Wednesday.

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-The House For-
eign Affairs Committee approved
yesterday a $119-million authori-
zation for the Peace Corps in the
year that started July 1.
The total is $5 million less than
the corps received last year and
$2.1 million less than the admin-
istration had asked.
The reduction knocked out an
administration proposal for an ex-
change peace corps to bring vol-
unteers to the United States from
abroad.
Also rejected was an increase
for research from $500,000 to
$900,000.

WASHINGTON-A high-alti-
tude U-2 plane, flying from the
United States toward South Amer-
ica, is missing, and the Pentagon
said yesterday it assumes the pilot
lost consciousness in flight.
In a special message read to
newsmen, a Defense Department
spokesman said the Strategic Air
Command craft, which is used for
reconnaissance missions, was "un-
der apparent control of the auto-

matic pilot" maintaining a course1
south.
Authorities in South America
have been alerted, he said.
The plane took off yesterday
morning from Barksdale Air Force
Base, La., "on a routine mission,"
the spokesman said.
Radar contact was lost while
the aircraft was off the coast of
Florida.
"It is estimated that the air-
craft fuel would have been ex-
hausted by mid-afternoon, East-
ern Daylight Time, the spokesman
said.
NEW YORK-The stock mar-
ket declined yesterday for the

WASHINGTON - The Senate

put a stop order yesterday on
plans for an extension of the
west front of the Capitol as it
passed a $214-million legislative
appropriation bill.
The measure, passed by voice
vote, forbids using any funds for
furthering the project, pending an
independent study of the cost and
feasibility of shoring up the foun-
dation of the west front without
changing its present lines.
