    CU Rockefeller speaks (SOF) starts.."In this spirit, I'm compelled to say two things bluntly .........." SOF ends... "We cannot as a nation or as a party proceed ..... nor should anyone presume to ask us to proceed ... to march to meet the future with a banner aloft whose only emblem is a question mark."

    "In this spirit, I am compelled to say two things bluntly: 1. I find it unreasonable - in these times - that the leading Republican candidate for the Presidential nomination has firmly insisted upon making known his program and his policies not before, but only after, nomination by his party. 2. I find it reasonable - and urgently necessary - that the new spokesman of the Republican Party declare now, and not at some later date, precisely what they believe and what they propose, to meet the great matters before the nation.



    I had hoped - in months past - that anyone aspiring to lead the Party would do precisely this. I have been waiting for this. It has not been done. I can no longer be silent on these facts. We cannot, as a nation or as a Party, proceed - nor should anyone presume to ask us to proceed - to march to meet the future with a banner aloft whose only emblem is a question mark."
