[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.
