    TRANSCRIPT:



    SEQ 2: PRESIDENT JOHNSON: "I WANT TO SAY THIS FRIENDS, THE MOST AWFUL WASTE OF ALL WAYS IS WAR. WE BELIEVE IN ECONOMY, BUT THE FALSEST ECONOMY WOULD BE MILITARY WEAKNESS. I WOULD NOT APPROVE AND I WOULD NOT PERMIT A CUT IN OUR DEFENCE BUDGET OF A SINGLE DOLLAR OR A BILLION DOLLARS IF IT MEANT INCREASING THE RISK TO ONE SINGLE BOY'S LIFE."



    SEQ 4: SENATOR GOLDWATER: "96 PER CENT OF THE PEOPLE AGREE WITH ME THAT WE OUGHT TO BE A LITTLE MORE AGREEABLE ABOUT WHO WE PICK TO LISTEN TO THE TOP SECRET OF THIS COUNTRY. (APPLAUSE)



    BUT THE THING I AM HAPPIEST ABOUT IS AFTER NEARLY HALF A LIFETIME OF COMPLAINING ABOUT THE TREND TOWARDS OF CENTRALISED GOVERNMENT IN WASHINGTON, AS OF YESTERDAY, 60 PER CENT OF THE PEOPLE AGREE WITH ME THAT THE FEDERAL POWERS SHOULD BE CUT DOWN."

    ON THE OTHER HAND, SENATOR BARRY GOLDWATER, THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT, YESTERDAY CRITICISED THE PRESENT ADMINISTRATION FOR WHAT HE CALLED "CORNER CUTTING" IN ITS MILITARY SPENDING. HE WAS SPEAKING AT A RALLY IN HIS HOME TOWN OF PHOENIX, IN ARIZONA. SENATOR GOLDWATER SAID THAT BECAUSE THE ADMINISTRATION WAS TRYING TO "CHOP THIS AND CHOP THAT", THE UNITED STATES WOULD NOT HAVE A BOMBER WORTHY OF THE NAME BY 1974, AND WOULD HAVE LOST 90 PER CENT OF ITS CAPACITY TO DELIVER NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

    SENATOR GOLDWATER WENT ON......
