REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(DC) LeMay stamped as cigar-chewing, blast the enemy type. Some people will now believe George Wallace wants to escalate war and use nuclear weapons. LeMay says he'd use any weapon if necessary and nuclear bombs just another weapon. Remark won't be allowed to die away. Reporter cites bombs dropped in Vietnam. LeMay can now talk rather than fight as he says he wants to.
