    1.
    CU. BARRY GOLDWATER SPEAKING.



    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 1: "I WAS IN WASHINGTON TO ASCERTAIN WHAT SUPPORT MR. BURCH COULD EXPECT IF A RESOLUTION WOULD BE OFFERED TO THIS QUESTION AT THE COMING IN CHICAGO. I FEEL THAT MR. BURCH WILL RECEIVE A MAJORITY, BUT THE SIZE OF IT IS A QUESTION - A MERE MAJORITY WOULD NOT SUFFICE IT WOULD HAVE TO BE ONE OF A SUBSTANTIAL ONE.



    MR. BURCH MET ME IN MY WASHINGTON APARTMENT AND TOLD ME THAT HIS ASSESSMENT COINCIDED WITH MINE. BY ELIMINATING THE POSSIBILITY OF A LONG FIGHT IN CHICAGO WHICH COULD END IN A VICTORY FOR NEITHER SIDE AND LEFT OUR PARTY DANGEROUSLY DIVIDED IT WOULD HAVE DEPRIVED OUR NATION OF THE ONE RESPONSIBLE HOPE OUR NATION HAS...THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.

    CU. DEAN BURCH SPEAKING.



    SEQ. 2: "I HAVE ALSO STATED MANY TIMES THAT IF I BELIEVED ABSOLUTE PARTY UNITY COULD BE ACHIEVED BY MY RESIGNATION I WOULD LEAVE AT ONCE. UNITY CANNOT BE ACHIEVED BY FORCING A VOTE AT CHICAGO, EVEN IF I WON UNDER THOSE CIRCUMSTANCES NEITHER I NOR THOSE WHO OPPOSE MY CANDIDACY COULD BE COMFORTABLE AND MY EFFECTIVENESS WOULD OBVIOUSLY BE IMPAIRED.

    CU. RAY BLISS. SPEAKING.



    SEQ. 3: "I WOULD CONSIDER ACCEPTING A CHAIRMANSHIP AT THIS TIME ONLY IF I HAVE THE FULL SUPPORT OF SENATOR GOLDWATER AND WAS ASKED BY HIM AS WELL AS BY THE NATIONAL COMMITTEE TO DO SO. I CONSIDER TO BE HIS SUPPORT TO BE ESSENTIAL FOR ANY CHAIRMAN AND FOR THE SUCCESS OF OUR PARTY. WE ALL AGREE THAT A VOTE ON THE QUESTION OF MR. BURCH'S CHAIRMANSHIP WOULD WEAKEN THE PARTY FOR YEARS TO COME."
