High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - March 20, 1974, High Point, North Carolina 26c High Point Enterprise w wednesday March 20,1974 his record still stand despite death lbs still casts Long Shadow we drove around the Back of the clapboard farmhouse in a Golf cart. He cawed to the wild peacocks sitting on the Fence and they talked Back. I kept reminding myself that the president of the United states talks to birdies. Lyndon Johnson died a year ago in Texas. He was 6 feet 2 inches and i suspect that in the minds of americans he has grown taller. They called him a Wheeler dealer and he was the Best. The charmer. John f. Kennedy dreamed great dreams for America but he could t win support from Congress. When he died the huge homely Wheeler dealer came in and the record shows that he enacted More progressive legislation than any other president in our history. He pushed the Kennedy program into Law. He was devious. He was suspicious. He cracked the whip Over his Cabinet and demanded results. He put people in his debt. When he flew air Force one to Texas Johnson invited Texas and Oklahoma congressmen to accept a free ride. When he made mistakes they were monumental. His poverty program was abused by politicians his Battles for civil rights alienated the South without winning the Black vote. When America stood in the Quicksand of Vietnam Lyndon Johnson called for the advice of his generals and admirals. They said they could a wrap it up if they had More men More ships More planes. He bowed to their Superior knowledge and killed himself politically. For a Short time mrs. Bishop and i lived on the third floor of the White House. I was writing a Book about Lyndon Johnson. To me. It was More like Reading a Book than writing one. For the first two Days when we met. He scowled. On the third morning he saw me in mrs. Roberts a How come a he said a the White House staff likes you a he was staring Down at the top of my head. A most of them know me from other i said. There was a silence. A what did you do. Or. President a i said a poll them a he broke into laughter and slapped me on the Back. A you re All right a he said. And from that moment i was. I hit him with questions about foreign relations about the War in Vietnam about Domestic policies and budgets. I asked him to think first before answering whether the questions might involve National Security. A a done to worry a he said. A Titi do enough thinking for both of he ran a taut ship. No White House employee Ever went Home without leaving word with the Telephone operators stating where he or she could be reached a whether at a movie or a party. In the evening he often phoned friends at the last moment and said a turn off the oven and come on Over for dinner. Bird and i feel lonesome for some Good there was a sign Over the big White House Range which stated a please Don t ask the president to have seconds. A mrs. he wanted to tear that sign Down but he did t have the nerve. Before he made a major speech he always stood in the bedroom and read it Quot aloud As mrs. Johnson sat listening. I asked Why. A hell a he said a she has a degree in to my Eye the old ranch House looked like $35,000 Worth not counting the Small swimming Pool. It was built by his aunt Long ago. Down off the slope of Green Lawn the smooth rocks glistened in the shallow Pedernales River. He had waded in it As a boy. When his heart first faltered in 1956. He ached to go Back to boyhood Days. At Home he was no longer president. He was a Texas Oil boy and he spoke like one. A a ainu to them Birds purty a he said in the Golf cart. When he got to Texas he put on a wrinkled yellow sports shirt tan Slacks and sat on a chair tilted against the Wall in the Kitchen. Two Black Cooks worked the stoves. Steam and smoke lifted from the burners. A fall right a he would say. A i Ain t been Home in three months. I want All the local gossip a hear a the Cooks laughed told him who married whom who died who bought a piece of land what the preacher at the Christian Church had been lecturing about a All the latest dirt. He loved those sessions in the Kitchen. Once he took me out to the Little private cemetery hidden under the spread of a live Oak. I thought of presidents who hoped that monuments would someday be built to them in Washington. A see that space Between my mothers Headstone and where my sister is buried a he said. A a that a reserved for me. You see in a the oldest and in a entitled to be next to my a Complex Man indeed.
