"Despite its troubles, the
American economy today is the
envy of the rest of the world,"
Nixon asserted. "We must not
overlook its strengths. We have
more jobs in America today
than ever before, at higher

in the world."
In Washington, Arch Booth,

president of the U.S. Chamber
of Commerce, said of Nixon's
speech: "The policies President
Nixon enunciated are admirable
and responsible. We need above
all, as he stated, an anti-infla-

his impeachment marched out-
