  • Description


    PALACE OF CULTURE AND STUDENTS TALKING TO INTERVIEWER (SOF)



    TRANSCRIPT: STUDENT SPEAKS "WELL, I'M FRANKLY DISAPPOINTED THAT RICHARD NIXON HAS WON. I WAS HOPING THAT HUBERT HUMPHREY WOULD WIN. THERE'S NOT MUCH OF A BASIC DIFFERENCE ACTUALLY BETWEEN THE PROGRAMMES REPRESENTED BY BOTH POLITICIANS BUT STILL I THOUGHT THAT HUBERT HUMPHREY REPRESENTED THE MORE SANE AND WISER ATTITUDE TOWARDS WORLD PROBLEMS AND ESPECIALLY WAR IN VIETNAM. ALSO HUBERT HUMPHREY HAS A PRETTY GOOD POLITICAL RECORD; ABOUT A DOZEN OR SO YEARS BACK, I BELIEVE HE WAS A PRETTY STAUNCH FIGHTER FOR CIVIL RIGHTS FOR THE NEGROES IN THE SENATE SO, ALTHOUGH AS I SAID AT THE BEGINNING THERE'S NOT MUCH OF A DIFFERENCE, I WOULD HAVE PREFERRED HUBERT H. HUMPHREY."



    INTERVIEWER SPEAKS: "SIR, MAY I KNOW YOUR OPINION?"



    STUDENT SPEAKS: "I MUST SAY I AM GLAD THAT RICHARD NIXON HAS WON THE ELECTION. I BET A BOTTLE OF WHISKEY WITH MY FRIENDS SO YOU SEE I AM GLAD. BUT I THINK I PREFERRED HUBERT HUMPHREY TO WIN THE ELECTION. BUT RICHARD NIXON HAS WON AND I HAVE WON A BOTTLE OF WHISKY SO I'M GLAD.
