the canipaign progresses Hultman pointed out Thc governor nodded his agreement Since we bolh have thc best interests of thc slate in mind however there always will be a number of things we have in common thc fiery attorney general added One of these areas of agree ment seems to be thc length of terms of office for state of ficials Both men said they would like to see these terms man also said he would like to sec this increased term applied to county attorneys One of the hot topics of con versation at the slag was Presi dent Johnsons narrowing down of the field for the Democratic vice presidential nomination Gov Hughes a longtime booster of Minnesota Sen Hub ert Humphrey for thc second spot on the ticket said he is most pleased with thc direction things are going Hughes also was eager to talk about his recent visit to Wash ington when he slept in thc White House I was so tired by the time we got to bed I could have slept on a pile of rocks the Gov ernor said Seriously though

Kennedy to manage his presidential cam paign informed sources said Sat urday They said the offer was made Wednesday at the same time Johnson told Kennedy he was eliminating him from considera tion as a vice presidential can didate The offer reportedly is under onsidcration I dont want to get into that Kennedy said Friday ivhen asked about reports of the offer before he left for Hyannis Port Mass

machinery number of key states and it u this knowledge several sources suggest that led Johnson to ask Kennedys services paign manager As for Kennedy according to the most reliable reports 1 He is puzzled but not bit ter over the way Johnson han dled the matter He is likely to campaign for Johnson as he promised last January Whether him he was not being con sidered for the second spot on he Democratic ticket Then the President suggested hat Kennedy consider taking he job of campaign manager he task he handled for his brother the late President John F Kennedy in I960 Later presidential adviser Mc carryover jcorge Bundy a rom the Kennedy adminislra ion called the attorney gcncr l presumably at Johnsons be hest He wondered if Kennedy shouldnt voluntarily withdraw from vice presidential consid eration perhaps by leaking a newspaper obby mpaiqr The US Broken and a uanned lunar follow But next he will manage that campaign remains to be seen 2 He has told political sup pcrters across the nation for weeks that he would not fight for the nomination he believed was Johnsons to bestow He never planned nor will he at tempt a convention stampede because hethinks it would hurt the party and his future He will remain attorney through the election and possibly if Johnson is elected through the January inauguration 4 He remains deeply interest ed in foreign affairs especial ly in South and Central America and Africa and could be per suaded to accept a post bearing on these areas in a new Johnson administration times better than any made heretofore from
