    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 2: President Eisenhower: "They are still the arsenal of those who lack a constructive programme founded on tested principals. Out of the complexities of modern life, our political opponents construct a jungle of problems which, they say, are impossible of solution except by the formulas they have dreamed up and would like to test on us and on the world. If allowed to do so, if elected, they will call the tune but we and those who come after us will pay the piper. (Applause).



    "In the campaign of our oppponents, the juggling of promises by the inexperienced, the appeal to immediate gain and selfishness, the distortion of facts, the quick changes from fantastic charge to covert retreat, all these are intended to confuse the voters, not to enlighten them. And this is nothing new. The tactics of confusion have always been a device to cover weakness in principle or in purpose or in proposal." (Applause).
