    TRANSCRIPT: REPORTER: 47,000 students greeted Ford with a deafening ovation. The address was billed a major foreign policy speech, but the President summed it up in two sentences, two sentences which indicated U.S. was finally washing its hands of Vietnam.



    FORD: Today, America can regain a sense of pride which existed before Vietnam, but it cannot be regained in the lighting of that war, that is finished as far as America is concerned. As I see it, the time has come to look to a agenda for the future, to unify to bind up the nations wounds and to restore its health and self-confidence.



    REPORTER: But, if Mr. Ford was talking about Vietnamese being a thing or the past the Japanese papers are reporting a battalion of U.S. Marines landed at .....to aid evacuation of Saigon. The White House...... said categorically this is false.........Mr. Ford will not be concentrating his thoughts on Vietnam either in word or deed and that will include any Presidential campaign in 1976.
