Votes of All America'

ATLANTIC CITY (MP-President
Lyndon B. Johnson accepted the
Democratic Presidential nomina-
tion last night and pledged. him-
self to a constant effort toward
? "peace among all lands" and unity,
prosperity and fair play for all
Americans.
"I accept your nomination," the
'President told the roaring thou-
sands of Democrats in national
convention.
"I accept the duty of leading
this party to victory."
And like his vice-presidential

running mate, Sen. Hubert H.
Humphrey (D-Minn), Johnson in-
vited Republicans to desert Sen.
Barry Goldwater (R-Ariz) and
come over to the Democrats.
For All
"Tonight," he said, "we offer
ourselves--on our record and by
our platform-as a party for all
Americans, an all-American party
for all Americans."
Over and over," at almost every
sentence or two, 79 'times in all,
the Democrats' broke in with ap-
plause or thundering roars or both.

Ten feet away, his eyes con-
stantly on Johnson, sat Humphrey.
The Minnesota senator had just
delivered his own acceptance ad-
dress, with Johnson in the presi-
dential box of this world's biggest
convention hall.
Here and there in the galleries
were stretches of empty seats. But
outside were crowds that wanted to
get inside and had no, tickets.
Hits Barry
Time and again, Humphrey had
hamnmered at Republican presi-
dential nominee Goldwater by

name-a man he said "has been
facing backward, against the
mainstream of history."
Johnson didn't name Goldwater,
but by the reaction the delegates
seemed to think he had the GOP
nominee in mind.
"There is no place in today's
world for weakness," he said. "But,
there' is also no place in 'today's
world for recklessness. We cannot
act rashly with "the nuclear weap-
ons that could destroy us all. The
only course is to press. with all
our mind and all our will to make

A joint communique from the
