show him trailing but f a v o r i t eson sentiment might carry him through CALIFORNIA President Johnson appears headed for a landslide victory in California Reports indicate that more than half the Republicans who sup ported New York Gov Nelson A Rockefeller against Goldwa tcr in the June 2 California presidential primary may shift to Johnson Democratic defec tions apparently based chiefly on the white backlash issue are apparently minimal These factors plus the heavy Demo cratic registration edge lend credibility to pollsshowing Johnson with 60 per cent of the vote reflect a strong

Whose finger is on the nuclear rocket button Until Nikita Khrushchevs unexpected ouster last week the answer to both questions was simple and the same Now its more complicated If President Johnson decides to have a talk on his direct line to the Kremlin he presumably would gel Alcxci N Kosygin As premier Kosygin heads the SovApt government such significant things as the lineup of portraits of Soviet leaders displayed in Moscow show that Leonid I Brezhnev is the lop man now He took over Khrushchevs job as Communist party first secretary In the lasl 40 years of Com munist rule the party secretary has always been lop man he has been premier only 18 of those years The premier the rest of the time has been a tech nician This might not be much of a problem for Johnson since the hot line is a teletype circuit not telephone Talking to two people might on be lhe phone confusing at on but agreed message could be put on the teletype from Moscow The fingeronthebutton ques tion gets more involved due to the vagueness of the Soviet constitution v It does not designate a peace time commander in chief for Soviet military forces as John son is commander in chief of the American military estab lishment Under the Soviet constitution the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet which declares war and concludes peace is presumably the top commander But Presidium has 33 members which is a bit too many Ucgcra for one button Lacking an officially pro claimed commander in chief Premier Kosygin might seem lo be the man But his portrait is second and what No 1 man would want to turn over the decision on massive devastation to his deputy Many nonCommunist observ ers of the Soviet scene have felt the system naturally gravitates toward oneman rule If the trend continues Bre zhnev will follow the example of Stalin and Khrushchev and add the premiership lo the party leadership or some other man will move in and ultimately take both jobs ission turned down GOP de lands for free time to match
