He was, of- course, Andrew Johnson of. Tennessee, the second of three Johnsons from southern states to be a successful Democrat candidate for vice president , The first was Richard Mentor Johnson of Kentucky, who became the next in line to Martin van Buren in 1837. Having failed to obtain a majority of the electoral votes for vice president in the election in 1836, the Kerituckian was the first and only candidate . to secure the office by action of the Senate. . He had seryed.ln that body, 1819.-1829, in between 10 terms In the House of Representatives. JJqwever, he went down to defeat with;Van Buren in their'campaign for a second term in 184Q. - Andrew- Johnson, who had been a Democrat membep of the House, governor of Tennessee, and senator, was chosen in 1864 as a '-War Democrat tq give proper recognition to that element in the Union Party"—to use a phrase of'Prof. Eugene Roseboom, author of the comprehensive "History of Presidential 'Elections"' (pub. by Macniillan). Lincoln! stayed close to the White House after his nomination in 1861, except for one trip to Baltimore for a speech, while Johnson's role .wis to seek votes from the regular Democrat nominee, Maj. Gen. George B. McClelland The result in November, when Lincoln led his opponent by less than 500,000 in the popular vote, could be attributed to some extent to the influence of Andrew Johnson in the border states of Maryland, Missouri, Kansas and other areas. He could have brought some support to Lincoln from Tennessee, but,' only partly occupied by Union troops, it did not choose electors. (Nor, of course, did 10 other states that had declared their secession from the Union in 1861.) Subjected to threats for his loyalty to the Union-and efforts in behalf of the Lincoln ticket, Johnson wore pistols conspicuously. —CLARK KTNNAIRD .[«-] Contemporary critical cartoon of Andrew .Johnson, running-mate of Lincoln on 1 the National Union ticket, 1864.

Timothy Tugbutton slammed into the office flailing his cane and shouting curses. His curses were directed against journalism in general. More particularly Tim was cursing the men and women who report White House news. Especially the women! "Oughta be a law against it," the old man hollered. "Oughta be a law that would jail 'em for life for a thing like that. And for the Tom Fool editors who put it in their papers." "Whassamatter, Tim?" asked Lou Cassels, a gentle, friendly type who writes religious news for UPI. "How come you're so upset?" •, "Upset! 'Course I'm jiRset," Tugbutton shouted. "A nice.kid, like that! "WHO?" the news desk chorused. "John Fitzgerald Kennedy Jr., that's who," the old man replied. "Jack Jr., a handsome young Irisher and the spittin' image of his old man, bushy hair and all. Tim Criticizes- Reporters "And look what those keyhole listenin', transom peekin' White House reporters did to that little kid?" ' "Okay, Tim, what did we do?" inquired Merriman Smith who was making a surprise visit to the office on other than a pay day. "Spill it." " 'John-John,' that's what you did, Smitty. Tagged that nice little kid 'John-John.'' Or, the women did it, most likely. Might as well let that kid's hair- grow and curl it, dress him in Fauntleroy flounces -and make him play house. "For the rest of his life that boy will be fighting that nickname. Anti-social, that's what it'll make him. • "So what if his old man did call him John-John when he was rolling in his nursery crib? It's an inside-the-family-name. I'll bet if that nice little kid had his dad handy to protect him, somebody'd put a stop to this John-John -business." By FRED MOHN United Press International SPRINGFIELD, 111. (UPI)— Sen. Barry M. Goldwater got some good news—from Chicago, of all places—as he whistle- stopped through- Illinois late last week. The good news came in envelopes— $1 million worth of them. | The Chicago Better Government -Association, with an investigative assist from a newspaper, revealed that Theodore J. Isaacs, the campaign manager for Democratic Gov. Otto Kerner, had been attorney for a concern called the Cook Envelope and Lithographing Co. The newspaper was Chicago's American. The hitch was that Cook had sold more, than $1 million worth of envelopes to the state 1 under the Kerner Administration. And Isaacs, while serving as Kerper's state director of revenue for three years, got $12,000 in fees from Cook. Denies Wrongdoing Isaacs has denied any wrongdoing. • Kerner, who has been boasting of a scandal-free administration during his reelection campaign, backed him up. The Isaacs case couldn't, to all appearances, help Kerner, and it could do nothing but help Charles H. Percy, the one : time Chicago business whiz who is racing Kerner neck and neck. Percy has been accused of being lukewarm towards Goldwater. What helps Percy is likely to help Goldwater, however. And the Republican presidential nominee needs all the help he can get in "Illinois, a state he acknowledges he has to win to get to the White House. U Votes There are 26 electoral votes" at stake in Illinois, and, to all indications, they're up for grabs. The late President Kennedy took the Prairie State in 1960, but by less than 9,000 votes— votes which Republicans charged Mayor Richard J. Daley's machine stole in Chicago. The state has one Republican senator and one Democratic senator. It has 24 congressmen —12 Democrats and 12 Republicans. It has, in Chicago, probably the most powerful big city machine in the country. The machine delivers'for the Democrats. Outside of Chicago are some of the most rock - ribbed Republican, "territories in the nation. According to the book, the outcome of Illinois elections depends on how many Chicago votes the Democrats can match against downstate . Republican ballots. But the book may be getting a little dog-eared. This year, party strategists believe, the Illinois .election may be decided right around Chicago—in the string of suburban "country towns" which ring the city in an arc stretching from the Wisconsin line to Indiana. , . The country towns are traditionally Republican and Percy has shown sizable strength there. The suburbanites have also shown indications that this may be a banner year for ballot splitting in Illinois. This would probably mean trouble for Goldwater. Cites Key Issues It was too early to tell whether the Isaacs case would play a major role in the fates of Percy.or Goldwater. At the outset, the Percy camp was willing to let others talk about it. Percy's campaign manager, Thomas Hauser, said the key issues during the final weeks of the campaign were taxation, GOP allegations that the Kerner Administration was controlled by Daley, and Kerner's veto of a bill that would have boosted state aid to public schools. Hauser said last week Percy would not "make a political football" out of the Isaacs case. "Kerner has been talking about the cleanest administration in the country," he said. This has a bearing on that statement. But we are going to take a look at it and let it stand or fall on its own merits." Playing Politics? Isaacs contended the affair was politically motivated. "This has to be political to be brought up at a time like this," he said. "I do not believe. . .that I have done any wrong, or that any conflict of interest obtained during the time I was director of revenue for the state of Illinois." He said he would not resign as Kerner's campaign manager and Kerner issued a statement saying Isaacs "has acted as attorney for the corporation, limiting his activities solely to the obtaining of requipment for the •> manufacturing of en? velopes." Isaacs contended his relationship with Cook Envelope has always been a matter of public record. He said the Better Call Him Jack "Write a-letter to the editor, Tim," suggested Grant Dillman, the office drudge, an insensitive type. "Tell 'em to call him Jack." "I'll do it,' Tim shouted, giving the news desk an extra whack with his blackthorn stick. "Won't do no good though," the old man added. "Those editors should know better. Why, even saw it in the New York Times the other day, right there in the paper it said: 'John-John goes to the fair.' Tain't right, that's what it ain't. ' "Now, I'know that fella, Turner Catledge, who runs that paper. I just figure they slipped that John-John in on him when he wasn!t lookin' or something like that. "But I'm gonna write to him, anyway. And I'm gonna tell him that little kid's got as good a name as any and maybe the best of 'em all to grow up to. Matter of fact, he's got two good names.. For formal wear he's got John F. Kennedy Jr. But when he's playing second base, he's Jack. Let's give that kid a break." Yankees Blame Park, Weather By ED SAINSBURY UPI Sports Writer ST. LOUIS (UPI)—The sun doesn't fall down when the New York Yankees lose, and they wish it would. Overcast skies and a calm day would be perfect for the American League pennant winners when they face the St. Louis Cardinals in the second game of the World Series today. The Cardinal bats and some clutch pitching by knuckle-bailer Barney Schultz - extended the Yankees' World Series los-. ing streak to five games Wednesday, but Manager Yogi Berra and his team blamed some of the 9-5 debacle on the strange park, the sun and the wind. Left fielder Tom Tresh, for instance, lost Curt Flood's fly ball in the .sun in the sixth inning and it bounced off the wall for a triple, driving in the sixth Cardinal run. Blew Ball Away The wind, bouncing off the scoreboard, blew Lou Brock's eighth inning double away from Tresh, into the left field corner, and it drove in two runs. Tresh, right fielder . Mickey Mantle and center fielder Roger •Maris all had to be geared for changes at the last split second on both flies and ground balls in the outfield. 'This is a tougk park to play in," Berra said. "We knew from practice that the balls were going to take some crazy bounces out there, on the infield and outfield, but we couldn't handle them even when we knew they were coming." "This is the worst outfield I've played on this year," Tresh said.- "If I could have seen Flood's triple, I would have caught it. I lost the ball in the sun, and I wasn't in front of the ball when it came out. Low Balls Affected "The wind isn't so bad on the balls up in it," he added, "but it bounces off the scoreboard in left field and affects the 1 o w liners. That's why Brock's ball got away from Government Association (BGA) timed its report to embarrass Kerner. "That is the only reason for the. allegations being made by the BGA, whom everyone knows is an arm. of the Republican Party," Isaacs said. Olympic Games Open Saturday By LEO H. PETERSEN TOKYO (UPI)—A steady rain hampered pre-Olympic workout ' for the cream of the world's best amateur athletes today but it didn't dampen the*!gold medals in boxing, wres- Russia captured 43. "We'll win "at least 37 here and may get as many as 40," Wilson predicted. He expects Uncle Sani to dominate men's track and field, both men's and women's swimming, and basketball, just as the U.S. has in past Olympic games. "And we are going to win hppes of the United States in the 1964 games opening Saturday. "We are ready with the best team we ever have, had at an Olympiad," said Kenneth L. (Tug) Wilson, president o£ the U.S. Olympic Committe e. "I don't hesitate to predict that the Stars and Stripes will dominate these games." He doesn't go along with the general feeling that Russia will win more gold medals than any of the other 90 nations competing in the world's greatest athletic carnival. "We aren't conceding tlirig, rowing, shooting' and yachting," Wilson added. . Here is how he classes the U.S. hopes for those first place medals: Thirteen in mens track and field. Nine in mens swimming. Five in womens swimming, J Three in womens track and field. Two in boxing. One each in basketball, rowing, shooting, yachting and wrestling. "That's a minimum of 37 and we'll better that," Wilson went ion. "Don't go for that stuff that thing," Wilson said. "I'm surel thc Russians are going to win we are going to win more goldj more than wc are medals here than we did in I "? rcallze Russla has a S reat : Rome in 19G0." j'- v improved team here but I In that last Olympiad the , fcel ° ur team is improved U.S. won 34 gold medals while nwre -" Wllson said - "Were 'going to do all right, believe me." .... . , , , . , i Other than the usual assort* It was a tough day to pitch, | ment of minor ailments . wiIson S ? ld - l?
