McCarthy said he did not see his' opposition to Johnson as a threat to the unity and strength of the party. "The issue of the war in Vietnam is not a separate issue but is one which roust be dealt with in the configuration of problems in which it occurs," McCarthy said.

Keen, Treasurer, 'Twas the night before Dumas, When all through thr town, Tho students were murmuring We'll knock them all down! The helmets were hung in the lockers with care Knowing that Saturday soon would be there. The players were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of victory danced in their heads. Coach Wood with his hat placed right by the door, Was dreaming of Brownwood and a victorious score. When into his dream, there arose such a clatter, He jumped from his bed to see what was the matter. Out of the bed he flew like a flash, He had dreamed of Fcnlon's 100 yard dash. He thought of a touchdown on new fallen snow, Despite the wintry winds that would blow. Then what to his wide awake mind should appear, But a new fangled play and his vision was clear. More rapid than eagles, his players all came, He whistled and shouted and called them by name, Now Thomas, now Rothe, McCluskey, and Alley, On Smith, on Southall, now Wallace, don't tarry. To the end of the field and over the goal, He visioned a touchdown that delighted his soul. Over the goal, the football did fly, He saw it plainly, It sailed toward the sky. Over the field, the Lions all flew, With Demons from Dumas shivering and blue. And then in his mind, he pictured some more, Demons were running from a Lion's great roar. The team in their beds were doing the same, They envisioned again a victorious game. It was time to arise, they leaped with a bound, And jumped in their clothes and scarce hit the ground. Out of the room with a hearty good-bye The players all flew with heads in the sky. Their eyes how they twinkled, now pleasant, how merry, The weather was brisk, each face like a cherry. But all of their mouths drawn up like a bow, ' They knew they'd be facing some wintry snow. No one was cold, just happy and gay. It finally was here, the long waited day. Neither chubby, nor plump, they were perfect in weight, The cake and the ice cream would just have to wait. A wink of their eyes, a twist of each head, Brownwood back home had nothing to dread. Speaking little, but thinking of the game, And how they would help their school gain its fame. They left for the field with a song and a whistle, Away they all flew like the down of a thistle. But when it was over the Demons were down, And the Lions again wore the glittering crown. .' McNamara Moves I To New Job in '68 — • | By FREDS.
