WASHINGTON (-P) - The Democratic party
broadcast filmed excerpts from President Nixon's
speeches and news conferences last night in a new
political campaign technique to accuse him of
"ringing calls for action" but obtaining few results.
Democratic National Chairman Lawrence F.
O'Brien said there are results only when the
Democratic-controlled Congress "takes the ini-
tiative and calls the shots."
The 25-minute broadcast, on radio and color
TV, was carried by CBS as free time demanded
by the Democrats to answer President Nixon's
statements during his 18 months in office.
The program, labeled "The Loyal Opposition;
Part One," included the following excerpts:
Nixon-in his inaugural address: "We cannot
learn from one another until we stop shouting at
one another-until we speak quietly enough so
that our words can be heard as well as our voices."
O'Brien--"But today the divisions within our
society are far greater than they were 18 months
Nixon-in his inaugural: "In pursuing our
goals of full employment, better housing, excel-
lent education; in rebuilding our cities and im-
proving our rural areas; in protecting our environ-
ment and enhancing the quality of life-in all
these and more, we will and must press urgently
O'Brien-"Unfortunately, in most areas we
see little or no progress; we share the concern
of all Americans with the decline in our economy.
Nixon--Jan. 30, 1970, news conference: "I
would simply say that I jo not expect a recession
O'Brien- "Regrettably, the President's expec-
tations have not materialized, and, as so many of
you are painfully aware, we have inflation and
recession at the same time."
O'Brien also said Nixon "must use his great
personal influence to roll back inflationary wage
and price decisions, just as President Kennedy and
President Johnson did on many occasions.
"Right now-tonight-Mr. Nixon could direct
the lowering of interest rates on home mortgages,
car loans and the clothes you buy on credit from
a department store," O'Brien said.
Five hours before the taped show was broad-
cast the deputy Republican national chairman,
James N. Allison Jr., called a news conference to
accuse the Democrats of "attempting one of the
greatest 'con' jobs in the history of American

NEW YORK (A)-Homemade
bombs were planted near three
foreign nation offices yesterday,
and one of them blew up and
slightly injured three persons.
Another device exploded at the
old World's Fair grounds.
The foreign offices were the

The injured were in the Hai-

in a 13th-floor hallway outside
the consulate. There was no
immediate estimate of damage.
Another pipe bomb was found
by an employe outside the 14th-
floor offices of the South Afri-

bomb squad later dismantled it.
