  • Description


    Scenes at the Democratic convention.



    Dean Rusk, talking on the Vietnam situation. 'Communist respect force, and the U.S. response to attacks will be immediate. This does not mean much beyond the statement as yet. Hanoi has not decided to leave South Vietnam alone, but it must do so.'



    Adlai Stevenson on voting in the United nations, and on the Republican platform. 'Changing the system of voting in the UN to reflect population disparity as Republicans would wish, will serve only to increase the voting strength of the Communist members of the UN.'



    McNamara speaking on the military strength of the United States. 'The strategic forces are and will continue to be sufficient in size and power to ensure the destruction of the Soviet Union and Communist China. A full scale nuclear exchange between the Soviet Union and the U.S. would kill over 100 million Americans. We feel the hand on the trigger could only be the person in highest authority - the President.
