REPORTER: Chet Huntley

(Boston, Massachusetts) Pol. advance man, Jerry Bruno, worked for Vice President Vice President and Kennedy receive crowds. Anti-war group protests loudly. [KENNEDY - says lesson of 1968 is there is no room for anarchy and violence. No solution to problems by shouting.] Vice President didn't speak long due to chanting. [HUMPHREY - says shall not move nation forwards if it's to be plagued by those who deny free speech and freedom of assembly and those who shout down voice of reason. This isn't convincing; it's disturbing and ridiculous.] He goes for crowds and gets protesters. Can't afford television time. Polls suggest he may be number 3 in race.
