AP)-The Republicans have from ths grassroots a spirited campaign song and a singing farmer to introduce it. Vice President Richard M. Nixon was the falent scout who discovered the combination. The song, called 'Go Republican," was written by a radio- television team, M Lamm and Joe Martin of WOW, Omaha. Jean McCjrtney of Fremont will introduce it at the GOP National Convention in Chicago later this month. McCartney is a tenor who threw over his $l,000-a-week income in the entertainment world to return to Nebraska to - farm and raise horses. Martin, an announcer-and disc jockey, broached the idea o( a new Republican "fight" song to musician Lamm last February. With Martin doing the words and Lamm the music, they wrote 'Go Republican." McCartney, whose singing i worked in between breaking quarter horses and raising corn', gave the song a 'rendition at a slate convention in Lincoln this year ai which Nixon spoke. 'Afterwards," McCartney recalls, "Nixon got up from the banquet table and came over and shook hands." "We ought to tales this show on the road," declared the 'vice president.
