(Studio) Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey's reception in upper-New York might not have been all he wished for.
REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(Buffalo, New York) 200 greet Vice President at airport. Costumed demonstrators deride Vice President at Canisius College. [HUMPHREY - says must show dissent in way that commands respect; public opinion can then be changed. Free speech too precious for it to be abridged by government, mob or harassment.] Graduate student attacks United States support of South Vietnam government [STUDENT - asks Vice President why he hasn't repudiated these immoral policies.] [HUMPHREY - tells student he's dead wrong. United States prepared for cease-fire now. North Vietnam not prepared.] Vice President proposes youth talent bank in civil service to recruit young for public service. New York Democrats quarrelsome. Democratic Senate nominee, Paul O'Dwyer, refuses to endorse national ticket. New York has 43 electoral votes.
