Apparently, it was the only enlargement of the pose, possibly because the glass negative broke, ia the process. It.was given to Lincoln's secretary, John Hay, who displayed it in poem written by Lincoln on July 19, 1803, less than three weeks after Gettysburg. The verse was mentioned in the Hay diary. At the time, Lincoln was be side himself with frustration having been forced to sit by whife General Meade let General Lee--and the war's end -drift away in the indecision tha followed the shock of Gettys burg. It has been said more than once that Lincoln was a far better strategist than any o his early generals, and the equa of Grant. The poem shows Lincoln in a jocular mood, perhaps finally released from the bitterness o his home and who handed -it watching a lesser man foul up down to;his.son.

Colorado Closeup By Gordon Gauss AP Staff Writtr Colorado lieutenant governors are about to emerge from their raditional role of men who wait n the wings. It seems certain those in the 'uture will be full time execu- .ives of the stale--although their rospective duties still remain nebulous. For the first time in the his- ory of. the office, the salary will Judge Orders Rev. Groppi Held Without Bond MILWAUKEE, 'Wis.' V (AP)Judge F. Ryan Duffy Jr., today ordered the Rev. James E. Groppi held without bond for one.week pending a r hearing tp determine whether the priest violated the terms of his proba- be one that an official can hope to live on. At present, the pay is only $4,800 a year and a quarter of. a century ago it was merely $1,800. The new rate probably will be $18,000 01 more. Largely, it seems, the lieulcn ant governors will fill the ceremonial role .currently played by chief executives. They may--01 may not--become heads of some important agency. The prospective changes are the result of passage of a consti tutipnal. amendment providing for election of a governor ant lieutenant governor the way the president and vice president are chosen. The nominees of each party will run as a team--a vote for. the gubernatorial candidate tp of'that party also is a vote for the nominee for lieutenant governor. The' Milwaukee ; County, judge said his court calendar was top crpWded to permit him to conduct : the hearing today. ..He scheduled it for Oct. 20 at 9 a.m. Duffy noted that Father Grop)i had sought sanctuary in ihurch at Madison after the court, had issued a tench warrant for his arrest as a possible jrbbation violator. He said the spurt' would order'the priest ield without bail to assure his iresence at the probation hearing. ' . ' The'hearing'-was ordered to deternjine'' whether the Roman Catholic priest's actions in Madson--which · included leading welfare protesters and student sympathizers in a takeover of he legislative chambers in the Capitol--violated terms. of his 967 parole on charges of resisting arrest. The 38-year-old priest was ailed at Madison nearly two weeks ago after .being cited for contempt of the State Assembly. WANT TRIBUNE AD 352-0211 This means that never again will Colorado have a governor of one political party and a lieu tenant governor of another, like it does at present. It also means that the lieu tenant governor will become a subordinate of the governor-not someone who can really strike out on his own politically He will be expected to suppor the policies of the chief execu live, just as a vice presiden supports a president. Sometime in the future it is possible the lieutenant governor will lose the'one regular duty he has now--presiding over the state's Senate. A constitutiona amendment will be necessary to make the change, but senators are talking about the possibility of removing him. With lieutenant governors largely dependent upon governors for election,- the senators feel, they would break tie votes in the Senate and would make committee assignments the-way the_ governors want them to This, they see as an infringement on · legislative indepen dence. The lieutenant governorship i. under study by the legislature's l-partisan Committee on [anization of State Government iut so far about.all it has de- ided is that the office j full-time one instead of a part- imfi one. Gov. John A. Love suggested o the committee a few days ago hat it might seek revision of he constitutional provision vhich makes the lieutenant gov- irnor the state's acting chief ex- 'cutive--with full powers of gov- rnor--whenever (lie governor caves the state. In these days f rapid communication and apid transport, Love said, there ippears little need for the pro- ·ision. The most immediate problem elating to the lieutenant gover- orship facing the committee is ae method of nomination. Members are trying to decide Or- Tucs., Oct. U, 1969 GREELEY TRIBUNE whether every candidate desig- ols stepped up to the governor- j should be nate1 f° r governor should pick a running mate or whether the gubernatorial and lieutenant governor nominees of each party should continue to be chosen independently--as (hey are now. The' present system allows bitter inlra-part'y rivals to. win places on the same general election ticket. This creates situa- .ions which no one really wants. Mobody, however, has been able to come up yet with any system which seems belter. Despite its impotence and part-time character, the lieutenant governorship lias been a ipringboard for higher office in recent years. Gordon Allptt eaped from the post to Ihe United Slates Senate.
