(Studio) Vice President Spiro Agnew renews his attack on leaders of war protests and civil disorders. Says they should be separated from rest of American society.
REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(Harrisburg, Pennsylvania) [AGNEW - states that small bands of students can shut down universities, small groups of dissidents allowed to shout down political candidates, and small cadres of professional protesters jeopardize peace efforts of US president. Time to question credentials of their leaders. Encourages positive polarization. Should rip away rhetoric, and divide on authentic lines. Discard fiction that everyone is qualified to quarterback government. Those who say our values are lies are impudent and snobs. They won't mingle with working masses.]
REPORTER: No reporter given

(Studio) Speech given at Republican fund-raising dinner.
