(Studio) President Nixon urges Americans to stand fast behind war effort until peace can be negotiated with Communists
REPORTER: David Brinkley

(DC) [Senator Hugh SCOTT - says Americans and Congress oppose cut and run resolutions. It's Hanoi that's inflexible, not US.] President Nixon speaks at Marine ceremony. [President NIXON - says difficult for soldiers to fight when nation divided. Can bring peace if Americans don't buckle.] President Nixon feels Hanoi will come to decision if given 60-day lull in criticism.
REPORTER: Herbert Kaplow

(DC) No evidence of criticism lull. Democratic National Chairperson Senator Fred Harris accuses President Nixon of blaming Democrats for his problems. He's escalating his language faster than he's deescalating the war. His appeal reminiscent of LBJ days when things were more difficult.
