But, cinch in my part of the coun try." The McCarthy and Kennedy campaigns, he said, "just relieve the President of trying to placate some of these far-out organizations." Rep. Jim Wright of Fort Worth said neither Kennedy nor McCarthy could hope for the nomination and added: "I endorse the re-election of Johnson emphatically and without equivocation." Rep. Earle Cabell of Dallas endorsed the President in similar terms and said he considered Yarborough's statement a slap at Johnson and a turning of his back on the Democratic party. "It would be wonderful if Yarborough and Kennedy could move in and arrange for these negotiations they keep demanding," said Rep, 0. C. Fisher of San Angclo. "The President's been trying for three years but the other side is not interested " In his statement last week, Yarborough called for renewed efforts toward a negotiated settlement in Vietnam and cautioned against further escalation of the war. He described Johnson, Kennedy and McCarthy jointly as "three men .... whom I know and admire." Yarborough, who was at odds with Johnson for years in Texas Democratic policies, has been aligned with Kennedy and Mcarthy on many issues in the Senate. Referring to the candidacies he said, he backs strongly Johnson's domestic programs and favors his renomination. The actions of Kennedy and McCarthy "will force Republicans to elaborate more on their Vietnam stand," Eckhardt said. Rep. Eligio de la Garza of Mission disclounted the impact of the Kennedy candidacy among Texans of Mexican descent.

All request action. Most call for spending. But in private conversation some of them say much the same thing: That Johnson must know that Congress, even if it approves new proposals in principle, is not likely to provide funds for them now in amounts sufficient to make much of a showing—and that disillusion- The steady barrage of nies- ment all around is the inevitable sages is one of the Irritants that result. have made for prickly relations J Administration officials who between a President determined j appear in closed committee ses- to keep his long-range domestic programs alive and a Congress generally willing to go along on Vietnam, but bent on consolidation—at most—rather than ex- pansjon of government undertakings at home.

Between Jan. 17 and March 13, Johnson sent 23 messages to Congress, including the opening State of the Union message he delivered in person. This total does not include routine communications such as those transmitting departmenta reports. It does include four reorganization plans of limited financial impact. The others, however, embrace proposals on such wide-ranging subjects as civil rights, education, public safety and crime the crisis of the cities and conservation, among others. There is nothing unusual about a President accompanying a significant legislative proposal with a special message to Congress. The question both critics and some supporters of the administration seem to be raising, each in their own svay, is whether it is good psychology to direct such a concentration of publicity about domestic programs at a Congress haunted by Vietnam and worried about the budget I deficit.
