BLASTS NIXON ADMINISTRATION

Humphrey

charges suppression

WASHINGTON (A - Former
Vice-President Hubert H. Hum-
phrey accused the\ Nixon admin-
istration yesterday of a calculated
attempt to suppress dissent in the
United States.
"I doubt that this country has
seen in the past 20 years such a
calculated appeal to our lesser or
baser instincts," Humphrey told
the new conference.
Humphrey said his statement
was prompted by Vice President
Spiro T. Agnew's criticism of tele-
vision commentators and also ad-
vance administration comments
about Saturday's demonstrations
against U.S. policy in Vietnam.
Agnew, in a Des Moines, Iowa
speech last Thursday, took issue
with the small "and unelected

amendment, noting that "it's the
impetus from the students which
has caused us to re-examine
ROTC."
It is unclear at this point how
the Regents will react to the
faculty recommendations. Several
Regents have indicated previously
they could not support th2 Aca-
demic Affairs Committee report.
It is unlikely that the Regents
will consider the report before
their December meeting.

"I disagree with those who

session, Humphrey concentrated
his criticism on Agnew. But he said

The council, organized to speak
for the Democrats on national is-

"I think the evidence is very

said.
Humphrey also defended W.
Averell Harriman, former U.S.
negotiator at the Paris peace talk
and chairman of the Policy Coun-
cil's foreign policy panel.
Harriman himself said that Ag-
new had raised the issue of the
rivht to criticize.
"I resent the fact that he was
attempting to intimidate those
who go before the powers in Con-
gress and say what they believe,"
Harriman said. "It smacks of to-
talitarianism which I don't like
at all."
Humphrey said the administra-
tion is not attempting to bring the
American people together, but is
following a policy of polarization,
"with the attendant effect of sup-
pressing dissent."
He said that course could set
loose reaction, backlash and re-
pression. "I would hope that this
was a sort of ten-day execice
that could be quickly dropped,"
Humphrey said.
