    NEW YORK SKYLINE; MCCARTHY SPEAKS (SOF)



    SENATOR MCCARTHY WAS ASKED: (SOF STARTS)



    "SENATOR, WHAT IS YOUR REACTION TO THIS EDITORIAL COMMENT YESTERDAY THAT YOU WERE MEDDLING IN AFFAIRS OF PEACE?"



    TRANSCRIPT: MCCARTHY: "WELL, I AM MEDDLING. I MEAN IN AN OFFICIAL CAPACITY. THIS IS WHAT MY CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN ABOUT. I'VE BEEN TRYING TO MAKE SOME CHANGES IN OUR FOREIGN POLICY WITH REFERENCE TO PEACE. I'VE BEEN MAKING SUGGESTIONS ABOUT HOW THEY OUGHT TO PROCEED TO NEGOTIATE, AND I DON'T SEE THAT GOING TO PARIS TO TALK TO SOME OF THE FOLKS FROM HANOI WHO ARE NOT IN THE UNITED STATES TO HEAR WHAT I TALK TO THEM HERE, I DON'T SEE THAT IS MEDDLING, BUT IT'S BEEN VERY CONSISTENT WITH MY CAMPAIGN AND I THINK IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA."



    SEVERAL QUESTIONS FROM NEWSMEN:



    MCCARTHY: "I DON'T THINK WE WANT TO MAKE IT OFFICIAL....... NO I HAVEN'T TALKED TO THEM. I DON'T THINK WE WANT TO MAKE IT OFFICIAL AT THIS POINT OF THE RELATIONSHIP. IT MIGHT RESULT IN SOME COMPLICATIONS. IT'S A REAL CONTEST BETWEEN THE....... (INAUDIBLE)........"



    MORE QUESTIONS -



    MCCARTHY: "THERE'S NO FORMAL PROBLEM FELLAS - THERE'S NO REAL PROBLEM ABOUT THIS. I CAN GO TO PARIS AND TALK TO THESE PEOPLE WITHOUT VIOLATING THE VOTING ACTS, WITHOUT PREJUDICING THE TRADITIONS OF THE UNITED STATES, WITHOUT IN MY JUDGEMENT IN ANY WAY HAMPERING NEGOTIATIONS. I SEE IT AS A TRIP WHICH IF I MAKE IT I CAN GET INFORMATION WHICH MIGHT BE THE VERY SAME INFORMATION I'D GET FROM OUR OWN STATE DEPARTMENT PEOPLE WHO TELL ME WHAT THE NORTH VIETNAMESE ARE (INAUDIBLE) - I WOULD JUST LIKE TO HEAR IT MYSELF."
