some of the people down from the Committee where we
could spend a couple of days, you know, with quiet and so
Yeah (unintelligible) sort of busy these days. Try and get
the weather, damn it, if any of you know any prayers, say
them (unintelligible) weather. Let's get that weather cleared
The bastards have never been bombed like they're going
to be bombed this time, but you've got to have weather.
bombing runs all the time and they couldn't see a thing.
But they were doing a different type of bombing then.
Oh they're better, but they're all under this one command.
It's all screwed up.
We just aren't going to talk about it.
The weather will clear up.
It's bound to.
When they do,
they'll hit something -- and, they're a lot of brave guys
you've got to say. After all that POW (unintelligible) that
poor who got shot down. They're over there starving on that
damned rice. It's all right, we'll give 'em hell.
Well the ah,
what are your reflections on the present thing. Why don't we
start with what I told the staff to get the hell off of the ITT
and then get on to politics which is more interesting, not
think what we have to face is that it will be investigated by

I would think I would go beyond investigative committees.
I'd go to some of the others where you have a facade
Yeah -- we're going to boycott anything that we think is
These people are disgracing (unintelligible).
And ah, Republicans just walk off and say it's just politically
motivated. Well, at least ITT got 'em confused.
· I would say it's quite confusing. Some of the more enlightened
newspaper people are beginning to write to the effect that the
Democrats got to come up with something more than they've
come up with or the monkey's go ing to be on their back.
You know this little girl -- this Lichtman -- the secretary?
You know where she had her press conference don't you
you notice that? Down in the law office of the Democrat
Yeah, but the press conference was held in the law office of
this (unintelligible) District, Democrat Chairman, and yet
there wasn't anything in the newspapers about it or why it
just so happened.
Most of the 'Shakers'lare, that's for sure.
What is your view about the convention -- about all the scares
and cries I hear about the 250,000 naked kids that are going
to be coming?
Well, Bob and I have just gone over this and I've had a meeting
And so forth, ah, it seems to me there are three factors
number one was screaming kids
call them kids;
the ITT Sheraton business with the television
on the hotel all through the Convention; and thirdly, and
equally, if not more important, is the fact that the site
selection committee and the people that went out there to
look at that thing did a God damned poor job. Its come to
the point where it's going to cost between 2.4 and 2.5 million
to put that thing together. In addition to that, there's
That's if we just get the convention hall apparently?
No, no, this is the whole thing, this is the whole thing.
I see, all the hotels and stuff involved.
Yeah everything; in addition to that there has to be nine
hundred odd thousand dollars of insulation in that arena out
there, and in addition to that there's a
Who, (unintelligible) this, Wilson (unintelligible).
No, I think a lot of our people closer to us than that were at
fault in not recognizing the limitations of these facilities.
In addition to that you have your building trades labor contract
