.........And Here's How You Can Use It!

'For months now your group has been working for Senator McCarthy. As the moment
of truth approaches and Chicago looms large on the political horizon, you are urgently
asking what else you can do. How can you make your efforts more effective? Is there
any way you can make other people's efforts more effective? How can you help give
that final heave which will ensure the nomination for the man to whom, by all fair and
democratic principles, it rightly belongs?
One sure way is to consult and cooperate with other groups in your area which
have organizations working for McCarthy. You might be surprised at how many there':.
are and how many ways you could discover together which would give your August efforts
more impact. Consider the following groups and possibilities:

Yes--you're reading right. There is a Republican and Independent Movement for '
McCarthy as you'll see when you read the strong and forthright ad that appeared in
the New York Times of Sunday, July 28. (We're sending you copies.) Its purpose is
to produce and demonstrate to delegates the strength of "cross-over votes." Help
the Republicans and Independents for McCarthy in their work for our campaign. Give
their national office details of those you know who may be willing to work with them
(e.g., dissenting Republicans, Rockefeller supporters preferring McCarthy to Nixon,
etc.) The Republicans and Independents for McCarthy seek information on delegates
and G.O..P. chairmen who may be sympathetic (either now or after Miami), G.O.P. clubs,
supporters and publishers who are anti-war. This and other information helpful to
them may be known to you as a result of intelligence gathering, personal contacts,
surveys, canvassing, etc. Encourage local Republican and Independent groups for
McCarthy in your area, and assist them so that they can present our case to the public.
We want people all around the country to know that it's the people of America that
want Eugene, not merely the forward-thinking Democrats.

In a special sense, no section of the public can speak with more authority on the"'
Vietnam War than the men who have fought there. There are many such men who are
strongly against it and who are right behind the Senator. Vietnam Veterans for
McCarthy are willing to talk to groups, issue supporting statements, and help your
efforts in any way they can. Let them help you. You can help them by letting any
Vietnam Veterans who support McCarthy know about this organization.

Recently a committee of fifty leading American clergymen of all denominations
announced the formation of Clergy for McCarthy. They will be sending out statements
and copies of the Senator's speeches to every church in the country. Why not organize
a "follow-up" campaign in your area by personal visits or phone calls to local clergy?
Help them to become involved. Show them what sort of team they'll join when they come
out for McCarthy. Discuss ways in which you can help them to help our candidate (e.g.,
by providing material on the Senator, his history, his stand on the various vital
issues.) Seek out- the clergy for McCarthy; they can certainly help you.

There are many individuals for McCarthy. But how can an individual make his
voice heard? For thirty to forty dollars, any individual can buy enough. radio time
to record a message on why he is for McCarthy. Or he can put a small ad in the paper.-
Or send cables to delegates. McCarthy supporters named McCarthy or McCarty can call .
all the persons in town by those names asking them to write delegates or give.other
support. Encourage the idea of individual-action for McCarthy. Collectively it
would make a great impact.
