  • Description


    WHITE HOUSE; NIXON SPEAKING (SOF).



    TRANSCRIPT: NIXON: "LET ME ASSURE YOU THAT THOSE OF US IN THIS ADMINISTRATION; THOSE IN THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE, DEMOCRATIC AND REPUBLICANS ALIKE, ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE PROBLEM THAT YOU'RE CONCERNED ABOUT. WE'RE CONCERNED WHEN WE SEE ON THE CAMPUSES OF THIS COUNTRY THE FRUSTRATION BUOYING UP INTO VIOLENCE; AND WE WANT TO FIND ANSWERS WITH YOU, THAT'S WHY I WAS SO DELIGHTED TO HEAR OF THIS CONFERENCE, AND TO NOTE THAT WHAT YOU WERE TRYING TO DO WAS TO SEARCH TOGETHER FOR THE ANSWER. SEARCH TOGETHER WITH THE COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITY PRESIDENTS FOR THE ANSWERS TO THESE PROBLEMS. OF COURSE, YOU KNOW YOU ARE NOT GOING TO FIND THEM. YOU MAY FIND THE WAY TO APPROACH THE PROBLEMS. YOU WILL NOT FIND THE ANSWERS IN A CONFERENCE OF TWO OR THREE DAYS. BUT THIS KIND OF DIALOGUE, IT SEEMS TO ME, MAY BE TREMENDOUSLY USEFUL ON THE CAMPUSES FROM WHICH YOU COME, AND I KNOW COULD BE VERY USEFUL TO YOU IN YOUR LIVES IN THE FUTURE."
