up the windows, he told me. I asked him how he found out and he
said he had a friend on the police force. I was afraid not to take
precautions. On Saturday night before locking up, I took the peace
sign down. The next day, I started getting calls from townspeople....
some of them didn't identify themselves....telling to take down
that sign....GET OUT OF VIETNAM.
This proves one thing to me. If you put war on the ballot in this
country, war would win.
One of the telephone calls that Sunday morning came from a guy
who called himself....probably with no known address....a concerned
citizen. Since the students were confined to campus, and the
National Guard seemed to have the streets under control, I went
back to the store and took down my last sign. It seems you have to
kiss everyone's prat to stay in business. (Departs.)
At this point in our presentation, we need some strong voice of
authority. We need a Winston Churchill to suddenly appear and
I kept hearing about these outside agitators coming into town.
You just heard the tradesman mention it. This campus has student
organizations of all stripes....and colors: When I was a candidate
for my position, I had the usual opposition. Now that opposition is
with me. He is standing beside me. We have made appeals to the
president of this institution to meet with me. We do want negotiations.
