    TRANSCRIPT: PRESIDENT KENNEDY: "THE VICE-PRESIDENT HAS GIVEN ME A REPORT ON HIS REMARKABLY SUCCESSFUL AND IMPORTANT TRIP TO WEST GERMANY AND WEST BERLIN. HIS REPORT EMPHASIZES THE CONFIDENCE AND TRUST WHICH THE PEOPLE OF WEST BERLIN HAVE IN THIS COUNTRY AND IN ITS COMMITMENTS, AND IT PLACES A HEAVY RESPONSIBILITY UPON ALL OF US TO MEET THAT RESPONSIBILITY."



    VICE-PRESIDENT JOHNSON: "NO PERSON CAN SEE THAT WE SAW WITHOUT DEEPLY FEELING THE GREAT RESPONSIBILITIES THAT AMERICA HAS TO THE PEOPLE OF WEST BERLIN, AND TO HUMANITY. THEY LOOK TO US FOR ENCOURAGEMENT, FOR HOPE, AND FOR LEADERSHIP - AND TOGETHER WE ARE GOING TO CONTINUE TO MARCH SHOULDER TO SHOULDER TO THE END THAT FREEDOM IS PRESERVED IN THE WORLD."
