Now Don t be left waiting in the wings when that curtain goes up Judi by Georgie Anne Geyer and Keyes Beech Chicago daily news service it is love that feeds the inextinguishable hate against the United states a Viet Cong Delegate to the 1968 Cul Tural Congress of Vietnam will Stu dents for a democratic society. The ideological mating be tween the no. 5 of a american Radical left and the v i e u namese communists with Fidel Castro playing in four Days of rage in the streets of Chicago in october 1969. A few Hundred student Radi cals who Call themselves weathermen surged through Chicago streets smashing win Dows overturning cars beating up bystanders who got in their Way and battling the police. Though most people know what happened few know Why it happened or what it was All about. What it was about was this the helmeted weathermen were laterally making Good on their Battle cry bring the War they were open ing a second front in Chica go to help their embattled comrades in Vietnam. The idea May seem preposterous considering the Odds. But Good revolutionaries Are never deterred by Odds. If they were they would never Start a revolution. Revolution Aries must first be True believers. Whatever else May be said of them the weathermen and women Are True believers. Unless you understand that you will never understand the weathermen. Another thing that must be understood is that what might be called Chicago s october revolution was another round in Hanoi s continuing struggle for american Public opinion. From the very Start Hanoi has waged a two front one on the battlefields of j South Vietnam., the other for i the hearts and minds of the i american people. A third less important front opened with the Paris peace talks in 1963. Obviously Hanoi did not Cre ate Antiwar dissent in the United states. What the Viet namese communists did do j however was to exploit that j dissent for their own purposes. In this Endeavor they j found a ready made instrument in the Young american radicals. As is the Case with so Many j love affairs it is difficult to say with precision when the u. S. New left and the Viet Cong first became enamoured of each other. But the court ship appears to have become serious about four years ago when More Young u. S. Radi cals began to trickle into Cas Tro s Cuba in search of a new world to replace the Rotten corrupt fascist pig state they lived in. The climate hardly could 1 have been More salubrious the atmosphere More Heady. In Cuba the americans could meet talk with and learn from real live revolutionaries 1 cubans. Vietnamese North koreans chinese Black Afri cans and an occasional Palms tin inn commando. The Central identification i was with Cuba and communist Vietnam. Cuba already had defied the imperialist Mons the uniter states and i vietnamese communists were i engaged in a valiant struggle against the same foe. Cuba s commitment to North Vietnam was a deeply Felt thing. Both Felt they were being persecuted by the United states and Many cubans Felt that Cuba would be at tacked by America next after Vietnam. On top of All this was the i luring dread that the two superpowers the . And the u.s.a., would make a Deal to ret rid of their respective j or o b 1 e m Moscow would Trade Cuba to i sri Yankee. Of. 7. Col. 1 Dodson urges Federal drug pushers Law u. S. Senate candidate Elmor Dodson said Here today he is opposed to mandatory sentences in drug violations because hey can give Young people a bark Mark on their record that they will carry to their the mayor of Charleston running on the Republican ticket said he has no Brief for drug pushers and would sup port Federal legislation Mak ing their punishment More severe. But. In too Many cases youngsters smoking Mari Juana perhaps for the first time have been caught and subjected to Dodson said. Young people who continue to use marijuana put them selves in jeopardy of graduating to deadlier narcotics Dod son said. And for them he advocates a plan of rehabilitation and education. Asho mayor of a City in West Virginia s largest metro Politan area 1 am too much aware of the problems of Law enforcement. And i do believe in Law and order. But there Are times when you can accomplish Law and order with compassion better than with a Mace. This is especially True in the cases of youths who unlike adults do not realize the seriousness of the consequences of their Dodson said. See pm.
