Mrs. Dwight Goodman emceed a smooth-running program staged in a gaily-decorated auditorium, featuring the colors of the American Flag on the tables and the familiar COP symbol, the elephant. She explained that the main reason for holding a Lincoln Day banquet on Feb. 22 was: “It’s the only date our friends in Washington could make.” Bow and his colleagues spent little time in tribute to Lincoln, and none in honor of George Washington, wrhose birthday it was. Instead, the deepthroated congressman, w'ho has already spent 14 years in the House of Representatives, declared he chose to talk politics, rather than directing his speech to Lincoln, whom he acknowledged as “the founder of our party.” He began a hard-swinging attack against the Johnson administration, stating: “We’re going to talk politics tonight. We’re going to pull the mask off some of the people in Washington.’’ Bow delivered only half the prepared speech he handed previously to the press, and centered his attention on Johnson personally and the failure of the Democrat regime to hold the U.S. high in prestige and influence in world affairs “We didn’t get a new President,” Bow said of the switch to Johnson. “We got a magician. A magician, double talk ” and a master of FOLLOWS CLEVELAND INDIANS Boy Admits Theft Of $3 7 UHRICHSVILLE — Police tolved a breaking and entering within an hour after it was reported Saturday.

And he says he is going to do more with less money. Indeed, the figures Johnson uses suggest the Kennedy administration was almost a national disaster.” The quick rise of Johnson to national prominence, Bow described as “one of the most remarkable press and radio buildups in history. “Three months ago the common thing around Washington was to ask. ‘Where’s Lyndon?’ ” Bow told his audience. “Now, suddenly, the press tells us that we have never been so fortunate in a time of crisis. No vice president was ever so well informed. He was part of every major decision; he has the whole situation in hand.” “Actually, Bow informed hi* listeners, most of Washington accepted as fact the rumor that the Bobby Baker scandal was blowrn open by Attorney General Robert Kennedy, prior to his See BOW RAPS.
