BUREAU OF CIRCULATIONS AMERICAN NEWSPAPER PUBLISHERS ASSOCIATION BUREAU Of ADVERT1SINC For Judicial Reform By voting Yes to the question on the left side of the Nov 2 ballot Pennsylvania citizens will be helping to provide needed reform to the state judicial system The question is entitled Proposed Amendment to the Constitution No 1A It allows retired judges who are will ing able and have not been defeated for reelection be recalled for duty when the courts are backloged with cases This would be done at a very small cost to the tax payer since payment would be made only for the days that a judge actually worked Judge G Thomas Gates president judge of Lebanon County has voiced his support of this constitutional amendment As his honor points out The courts of Pennsylvania are crowded and there are substantial backlogs in most counties The proposed amendment was also overwhelmingly recommended by two ses sions of the Pennsylvania Legislature In recent years business and industry have followed a procedure of recalling to ac tive duty retired employes who have many productive years ahead This lias proven beneficial to both the employe and the em ployer There Is no reason why such a common sense approach fculd not be followed by the courts of the Commonwealth Pekings Pique Last June Red China painted itself into a diplomatic corner by insisting that the 1965 AfroAsian Conference be held in Al giers as scheduled It mattered not to Peking that Algeria at the time was in the throes of rebellion that its premier had been dispossessed that the conference hall itself had been bombed and that no one in authority could guarantee the safety of the invited dele gates f What did matter was that Peking had managed to exclude the Soviet Union from the guest list and that Premier Chou EnLai had emplaned by way of Cairo for the conference and an anticipated clear shot at influencing emerging nations free of Moscows competition But a majority of delegates voted to reschedule the conference for Nov 5 And now tourists flock bnce more to the Cas bah Algiers is bedecked in preparation for the conference and the foreign ministers of some 50 emerging nations have wired for reservations Not however Pekings Mr Chou The committee on arrangements it seems dared to invite a delegation from Moscow on the theory presumably that Moscow is no worse than Peking Red China will boycott the meeting Supporting it are North Viet Nam North Korea Guinea and Tanzania Which isa pretty fair measure of Pekings influence in the world these days That Billion Top Annual federal expenditures under the Presidents conventional administrative budget have never gone above billion even during World War II For psychologi cal as well as financial reasons Mr John son therefore has kept spending below that mark thus far The administration had estimated spending in the current fiscal year at a record billion but still under the billion barrier For the JulySeptember quarter the first three months of fiscal 196566 however the rate of spending has penetrated the billion ceiling And chances of staying under fliepsy chological wire in fiscal 196667 are at the vanishing point Commerce Secretary Con nor ha already acquainted the Defense Executive Reserve Conference of the dif ficulties Mr Johnson faces in preparing the new budget for Congress in January It now seems clear he said the budget would go above billion despite the Presi dents determined efforts for economy From all accounts these efforts were not altogether directed to saving the tax payers money Congress on Mr Johnsons recommendations has just wound up the costliest session in its history not exclud ing any session during World War II AntiIntellectual Princeton economist has pointed out that the number of books published in the U S in 19H was greater than in any suc J953 And said he in 1959 the number was not more than 24 per cent above that of I OK despite the fact that the population had increased by 78 per cent and the gross national product by 988 oer cent Can it be that this is really becoming aMtipn of illiterates Maybe the reason people like Peyton Place is less that theyre at it than theyre identifying with Labor Japs Refuse To Sail ILS Supply Ships By VICTOR RIESEL A handful of the ingroup of Americas most knowledgeable manpower experts have been told that within less than a year there will be halfamillion U S troops in South Viet Nam This word comes from t h highest Pentagon echelon Well get them there if can The logic of the logistics of shipping so large an army and the support materiel for fight ing men calls for a huge ar mada of freighters The U S does not have such ft cargocarrying fleet We are short of ships We have long run out of what was available We have sold some of the boneyard vessels as scrap to Japan and West European na tions Grim result Is that he gov ernment now is permitting American lines to charter for eign freighters s But the foreign craft are not ghost ships They need flesh and blood crews However foreign seamens unions everywhere are quietly telling their seago ing members they need not sign on for the runs into South Viet namese ports THIS IS THE WORD con stantly received by such mari time union leaders as Joe Cur ran National Maritime Union president and Paul Hall lead er of the Seafarers Internation al Union The foreign unions certainly are not all Communist con trolled Some are neulrai Some are Socialist Some are Social Democratic But their members Just dont want to jjct shot at They loved the dollars in peace time but now dont want to take the hot with the cold One of Mr Currans aides re veals that even the nonCom munist Japanese sea men are deserting the U S Ive Just confirmed his findings In trans oceanic telephone conversations with authoritative Japanese lources in Tokyo Recently for example the Slates Marine Lines chartered eight vessels from four Japa nese shipowners The American company needed the craft for s quick trips into South Viet Nam over a three to six months stretch These Nipponese craft are manned by Japanese crews who belong lo the AllJapan Sea mens Union The seamen in turn are affiliated with the DOMFl a national labor feder ation of no particular political color However the DOME outfit demanded that thefour Japan ese shipowners refuse to do bus iness with States Marine if the craft were bound for the fight Ing area If not the seamen on boardwould walk off t h ihips said DOMEI officials The AllJapan Seamens Un ion then sent a committee to the Ministry of Transport The government officials soothed the seamen by telling them that they would not be forced to go This is not the first time the Japanese seafarers turned on Ihe U S Recently they re fused to man our LSTs Land ing Ship Tanks though the Japanese have been earning high wages on these craft for years THESE VESSELS are run by the U S Dept of Defense They are part of the U S Navy But they have had Jap anese civilian crows since the end of World War II These Japanese sailors have lived well on this extraordinary pay made while they repatriat ed Japanese soldiers from the old fighting fronts wrL as carrying relief cargoes for Ja pan itself Now many of them Have quit Their union brothers have called those who stayed on war collaborators Thus the U S has been forced to seek unskilled civil ians Any other description of some of those now signing on would not f i t into a family newspaper Joe Currans attitude is that we have no one but ourselves to blame This is our fight and we long ago should have put Ameri can seamen to work as well as putting our shipyards into action building a modern mer chant fleet Now most of what we have are slow boats to IndoChina and not enough of those either Pigi 19 Lebanon Dtily News Lebanon Pa Monday Novtmber 1 1965 From Now On VOULLTAkE o t o nt a c Fever By JACK WILSON Maybe those two admirals really did quit because they do not like the way

abolished aJl but ILL 5ET MY HIM Inside Washington Missile Buildup In N Viet Nam Alarms Presidents Military Intelligence Aides By ROBERT S ALLEN and PAUL SCOTT WASHINGTON The c6niin of Soviet surfacetoaii missiles in North Viet Nam is causing grow ing uneasiness among Picsi dent Johnsons military and in telligence advi sers With more SA2 missile s ile s n o w in North Viet Nam than in Cuba the militaryin A BORN telligence experls are concerned that the missile buildup may be a prelude lo the introduction of large numbers of Soviet jet bombers and groundtoground medium range ballistic missiles These missiles and bombers c o u 1 d present a formidable threat to the security of US troops and aircraft in South Viet Nam because of their con centration in strategic areas This alarming possibility was ordered probed by Central In telligence Director R a b o r n Whose agency is in charge of all intelligence in Viet Nam after photo reconnaissance flights discovered at least 32 missile sites in North Viet Nam compared lo 25 in Cuba On receiving this intelligence Admiral Raborn immediately began asking questions seeking the reasons behind the increas ing SAM sites in the same way his predecessor did prior to the Cuban missile crisis In late September 1952 John McCone thenCIA head start ed to seriously question his agencys reports that Russia would never send ballistic mis siles to Cuba Citing numerous shipments of grpundtoair mis siles McCone kept demanding Why is Russia sending so many SA2 missiles to Cuba By mid October McCone got his answer sad the world a ma jor US Soviet confrontation The SAMs were installed to pro vide a protective ring for 42 1200 mile range ballislic mis siles and 16 medium range jet bombers being readied for op erational usi HISTORY REPEATS As in lie period preceding the Cuban missile crisis the number and menace of Russian missiles in North Viet Nam apparently are being under estimated by US officials In the opinion of militaryin telligence experts hard circum stantial evidence exists that the Russians are again preparing to test the US by installing a con siderable number of ballistic missiles and bombers in North Viet Nam Since last July high flying U2 reconnaissance planes have photographed at least 14 900 mile range Badger bombers on airfields within the Hanoi Haphong complex a 100mile square sanctuary that is off limits to U S bombers U S experts believe the num ber of bombers may be as high as 10 This estimate is based on information supplied by for eign businessmen who witness ed the unloading of largehatch ed ships that arrived at Hai phong North Viet Nams main port last month from Russia Ships with large hatches were used to sneak bombers and mis siles into Cuba in 1962 The same type vessel hauled those w e a pon s but of Cuba under threat of US military action In addition to the bombers the North Vietnamese have re ceived some 30 MIG21 jets This latest model fighter could be a match for the planes the US is using against targets in North Viet Nam The MIG21 is roughly comparable to the F 104 interceptor Around 50 old ermodel MIG15s and MIG 17s are stationed on fields near Hanoi THE MISSILE PUZZLE The Soviets missile intentions proving difficult to evalu ate because of the drastic re strictions the White House has placed on reconnaissance flights over the Hanoi Haiphong area The Joint Chiefs of Staff have requested a flight a day over this 100 mile wide sanctuary but only two missions a month are being permitted This gives US intelligence limited oppor tunity to detect Ihe arrival of groundto ground missiles So far the photo planes have spotted two large trailer type trucks similar to those used in Cuba to transport mediumrange ballistic missiles from the docks to launching sites Also uncovered was the cons struction of large concrete bases at twoSAMsitesThere hard bases are the type used for ballistic missile launchers and are not required for the SAMs DANGER PERIOD E v e n more disturbing are reports that the Russians are introducing semi mobile 900 mile ballis tic missiles into North Viet Nam These missiles capable of dropping large nuclear or con ventional warheads on US bases as far south as Saigon are lo aded on tank like car riers that serve as their own mobile launchers Several of these tank carriers missiles have been spotted on roads in North Viet Nam in re cent weeks With President Johnson recu perating athis ranch in Texas the Joint Chiefs of Staff are con cerned that the Russians may try to take advantage of his ab1 sence from Washington to sneak ballistic missiles into North Viet Nam Once such missiles are in place the Joint Chiefs warn Hanoi could threaten to attack US troop concentrations in South Viet Nam unless US air attacks on North Viet Nam were halted If such a situation de veloped the US would have the alternative of either sub mitting to this demand or un dertaking to destroy the missiles before they could be used against US forces in South Viet Nam To prevent this deadly black mail weapon from falling into Ihe handsof Ho Chi Minh the Joint Chiefs are vigorously urg ing that the main ports of North Viet Nam be blockaded either with naval ships or by mining their harbors Senator Daniel Brewster D Md member of a Senate Arm ed Services Subcommittee that recently visited Saigon told col leagues that General W C Westmoreland favors the latter course At a private JVieelinj West moreland told Brews icr that more ihan 70 per cent of all North Viet Nam war material Including oil to power the gen erators for the missile and ra dar sites now arrives by sea If we blockaded NoVlh Viet Nam Hanoi would be forced to the conference table Within three months said the US troop commander He also disclosed that the recommendation to mine the North Vietnamese harbors was made more than six months ago but that it was rejected by the While House and State Depart ment VOTERSof North Corn wall Township will have an extra question on their voting machines in tomorrows elec tion If the voters approve they will permit the showing of movies after 2 pm on Sundays The question might arise as to why a township that doesnt have a movie theatre is con cerned about Sunday movies The answer is simple if they authorize the showing of movies on Sundayit looks as though they will be getting a 900seat theatre The proposed site of the in door theatre is at the Lebanon Plaza shopping center The word is too that this theatre if it does become a reality will be exceedingly plush quite a showplace What will happen to the theatre if the voters of North Cornwall Township vote against the Sunday movie question Well according to reports re ceived by this column that question is still undecided It is understood however that the proponents of Sunday movies in North Cornwall Township are optimistic MAYORALTY races In Pitts burgh Erie Scranton and 23 thirdclass cities spotlight Penn sylvanias municipal
