This afternoon an old church at the top of Jay Mountain caught fire. A class of young children were picnicking there when the church caught fire. Five children were stuck in a room in the back of the church when it went up in flames. Two young boys, who just happened to be hoods, gallantly ran into the church to save the children. After they tossed the children out the window to safety, one boy got out but was on fire and the other got stuck under a fallen beam. The two were sent to the hospital with an older boy in an ambulance with one of them. An older teacher who had been with the school for the picnic rode in the other ambulance with the other boy. One local farmer says they saw one of the boys when he had asked wear Jay Mountain was. The farmer stated that the boy had told him they were playing army and that he was supposed to report to headquarters there. Both of the boys who save the children are still missing names. The other boy, however, revealed his name as Doug Johnson. The doctors at the local hospital are working with the boys right now, but it is still unknown whether they will live or die.

Lyndon B. Johnson - Opinion

By: River Sigafoose


While he began his presidency with widespread approval, support for Johnson declined as the public became upset with both the war and the growing violence at home. Johnson faces further troubles when summer riots broke out in most major cities. The crime rates are soaring, as his opponents raised demands for "law and order"

policies. I think that he is becoming too old to be a president and he is losing his senses.
