cratic National Convention AP AUSTIN Tex AP dent Johnson applauding the convention that endorsed his Vietnam war policy and his vice president is thought likely to appear at the convention tonight to anoint the Democratic ticket In keeping with Johnson's preference for secrecy there was no official advance word on any plans to attend the cratic National Convention in Chicago But the President discarded the cloak of impartiality he's worn sometimes restively the past few weeks and commended the nomination of Hubert H Humphrey as the party's Now that the party has an excellent and an well-qualified candidate for president President Johnson said that all Democrats will un- ite behind him and move for- ward to victory in the said press secretary George Christian at the Texas While House Christian said Johnson called Humphrey to offer tions as soon as the President watched the vice president get the nomination on television Johnson's noted all viewpoints have been ex- pressed at the convention Johnson didn't refer to the Vietnam platform plank ered a victory for his tration But on his birthday Tuesday he had said he hoped the positions of the major ties on the war will not be oo divergent That way he explained the world won't have to wait until November to find out America's course in Vietnam Before the nominating es began Wednesday in Chicago delegates heard Johnson's gram he will not run for re-election That said the tele- gram was and is ue uau saia ne me Lesson for McCarthy You Can t Buck Establishment Rv nf u- N By JOSEPH E CHICAGO AP Sen Eu- gene J McCarthy bucked the Democratic party establishment with legions of breathless youngsters and none of the weapons and wiles of the ful politician He had no money no name no tical base no organization na port So he lost in the conventional sense of the word in that he failed to win his party's nomination But McCarthy won something in the light of the rather limited goal he set for himself when he announced his candidacy nine months ago Then it was merely to take the war in Vietnam before the American people in a candidate to allow those ple a vole on that war Eugene Joseph McCarthy also won his race in the sense that American politics may never be the same after the romantic ad- venture that began so quietly in the New Hampshire snow last winter His young supporters though looking Wednesday night as if world had just ended are also taking heart from some of the battles won by McCarthy on his way to losing the war He was the leading edge of he avalanche that ultimately forced President Lyndon Baines Johnson to announce he would not seek another term He spread throughout the land a new belief that housewives clerks and college sands and thousands of college find themselves a niche and play a role in shaping the nation's future He gave a new image and likeness to word cian There have been few if any like this former professor who rejected virtually every orthodoxy and tradition spoke low and avoided the nival trappings of a political campaign whenever possible Yet in these very victories lay his ultimate political defeat by Hubert H Humphrey in the con- vention Wednesday night It was the untested kids against the pros pros who had not only been in the game a long time but happened to hold the reins of U.S political power at the moment The Children's Crusade did have the pros looking back over their shoulders from time to time wondering why McCarthy refused to lie down and die But they never lost control of the way things operate in a political party so many decades old McCarthy lost too because in his 20 years in politics he had never developed a political base to which he could return for major support when the lime came for the big move He was an efficient senator liked in Minnesota but he had little patronage to give out er political debts to collect McCarthy lost because he re- mained far out of the ic club in a year when the con- vention was deeply entrenched within it There was a yawning generation gap between the McCarthyites and the ulars Neither spoke the guage or ever really tried to The regulars never could un- why McCarthy would not concede defeat when he lost to the late Sen Robert F in most of the primaries McCarthy went it alone most boasting in his quiet way that he never asked for the port of major political figures big
