Original Lyrics                  
This is the early evening edition of the news.
The recent fight in the House Of Representatives was over the open housing
Section of the Civil Rights Bill.
Brought traditional enemies together but it left the defenders of the
Measure without the votes of their strongest supporters.
President Johnson originally proposed an outright ban covering discrimination
By everyone for every type of housing but it had no chance from the start
And everyone in congress knew it.
A compromise was painfully worked out in the house judiciary committee.
In Los Angeles today comedian Lenny Bruce died of what was believed to be an
Overdoes of narcotics.
Bruce was 42 years old.
Dr. Martin Luther King says he does not intend to cancel plans for an open
Housing march Sunday into the Chicago suburb of Cicero.
Cook County Sheriff, Richard Ogleby, asked king to call off the march and the
Police in Cicero said they would ask the national guard to be called out
If it is held.
King, now in Atlanta, Georgia, plans to return to Chicago Tuesday.
In Chicago, Richard Speck, accused murderer of nine student nurses, was brought
Before a grand jury today for indictment.
The nurses were found stabbed an strangled in their Chicago apartment.
In Washington, the atmosphere was tense today as a special subcommittee of the
House committee on un-American activities continued it's probe into anti-
Vietnam war protests.
Demonstrators were forcibly evicted from the hearings when they began chanting
Anti-war slogans.
Former Vice-president Richard Nixon says that unless there is a substantial
Increase in the present war effort in Vietnam, the U.S. should look forward
To five more years of war.
In a speech before the convention of the veterans of foreign wars in New York,
Nixon also said opposition to the war in this country is the greatest single
Weapon working against the u.s.
That's the 7 o'clock edition of the news,
Goodnight.



                        Silent night
                        Holy night
                        All is calm
                        All is bright
                        Round yon virgin mother and child
                        Holy infant so tender and mild
                        Sleep in heavenly peace, sleep in heavenly peace.

This is the early evening edition of the news.
The recent fight in the House Of Representatives was over deficit spending
and the burden it puts on future generations.
The brawl brought traditional enemies together but it left the defenders of the
measure without the votes of their strongest supporters.
President Bush originally proposed an outright ban on cutting the deficit
by everyone everywhere but it had no chance from the start
And everyone in congress knew it.
A compromise was painfully worked out in the House Budget Committee.
Today comedian Richard Pryor  died of a heart attack
In the past, he had set himself on fire while freebasing 
Later he developed MS
Pryor was 65 years old.
California Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, lived up to his name, The Terminator,
When he refused clemency for Crip gang founder, Stanley "Tookie" Williams. 
Tookie was executed at 12:30 a.m.  He had been convicted of murdering four people.
In Montreal, more than 150 nations gathered to start formal talks on reducing 
greenhouse gases.
An unwilling United States will not take part.
Former President Clinton said the Bush administration is 'flat wrong'
In a speech on Iraq, President Bush guessed that over 30,000 Iraqi people 
have been killed by Americans.
He put the number of U.S. self-inflicted deaths at over 2,000
The President ended the speech by inferring that the U.S. is 
superior in the eyes of God,
"May God bless you all and may God continue to bless America."
That's the 7 o'clock edition of the KingArthur.com news,
                        Goodnight.
