He was born in an obscure village 1,967 years ago. He grew up in an- other village, worked in a carpen- ter shop, was an itinerant preacher. He never made a business, profes- sional or "social" success. He never went to school, owned a house, held an office. He never had a family and never traveled more than 200 miles from the place where He was born. Yet, the world's calendar is dated backward and forward from His birth. He never wrote a thing, yet His teachings have influenced the world more than any person who ever lived. He is the most lovable, com- pelling, fascinating, and perfect char- acter of history. He was so gentle that little chil- dren climbed on His knee and so strong that fearless men ran from the temple when He accused them of making It a den of thieves.

He has made so many predictions about "improvement" of the Ameri- can position in the Vietnam War that they can hardly be counted, and cer- tainly not counted on. The com- mitment of troops has grown bigger but the end is not measurably closer. He has restricted our military ef- forts while the enemy has stepped up his. Mr. McNamara apparently is even more dovish than his punch-pulling superior and guarantor of"prlvlleged sanctuaries" for the enemy, Mr. Johnson. The list could go on and on, in- cluding Mr. McNamara's dangerous- ly unsound disarmament inclinations demanding Instead that the people pay more taxes. By reducing the value of the pound Britain will receive less money for its exports. It is just like cutting prices abroad while maintaining pri- ces at home. For example, a machine selling for 5,000 pounds will still sell for 5,000 pounds at the New York dock, but it will take only $12,000 U. S. dollars to pay for It as compared to 914,000 last week.

They will go on giving the people free eye glasses, free medicines, free toupes and free what-have-yous. We can understand the attitude of the recipients but foreign visitors to Britain will come home singing the praises of these welfare programs without thought to the trouble they have bred for labor in Britain. Washington Observer $50,000 in cash, which was promptly pick up the reins of the Party other than Bobby. So he will be the can- dldate in 1972, which is not too far away. If the Gallop and other polls have their way in persuading LBJ to re- tire, ala President Truman, the only one standing in the wings ready to make the race is Bobby. Senator McCarthy's (Minn.) threats of running in several primar- ies against LBJ are partially for Bobby's benefit but are also a re- payment for the snub of President Johnson when he selected the Vice Presidential nominee in 1964. At that time it was considered by most De- mocratic politicians that Senator Me= Carthy was to be the V.P. nominee, President can't hurt, but they the message across to the in New Hampshire they will that a vote for McCarthy is reall~ With a Presidential election coming up, with a badly mishandled war loom- lng as a potential top issue, with Mr. McNamara going counter to the advice of professional military leaders in so many respects, it seemed clear that political necessity, if not good judg- ment, would effect his removal. President Johnson has, therefore, "kicked him upstairs." Mr. McNa- sara Is to be president of the World Bank, which is the casual name for the International Bank for Recon- struction and Development. The or- ganization that Mr. McNamara pre- sumably will head within a few months is an important one that sells bonds and applies money appropriated by member countries to the financial support of many financially weak na- vote for Bobby. In our opinion this is being to impress President Johnson of the results of the polls and to him off from making a selection candidate for the nomination, as President Truman.

Some think the voice of the people is not heard as It should be in the highest councils of government. But Robert S. McNamara clearly seems to be a victim of public recognition of his own poor administration which became so critical that a President with his eye on the next election has Only the massive backing of Bobby Kennedy, the poll revealed, could pull the ticket through to victory. When the President found out about the poll, he was enraged; his ire was promptly reported to the AFL-CIO headquarters. The labor bosses were alarmed that LBJ might be peeved at them so they put their heads and thetr accountants I'r~ rral'h~ ~" an~ ur|th feel for their chief. That is not to say that the touching story does not have a material aspect. As a personal gift, LBJ can pocket the money and pay no taxes on it, which will go far to soothe his hurt feelings over the poll results. This is the first public mention of the splendid gift received by our good sense displayed by the victorious Israelis in restraining themselves to certain practical military goals when the Arabs were defeated last June. Israel could have pushed much far- ther and done much more damage to Its enemies. Since that war, however, the Arabs have acted more like conquerors than vanquished. And now the president of Israel could for the Arabs have not recovered strength they had before their defeat. The Syrian president should be Israel is not inclined to initiate showdown he calls for.
