In remarks prepared for delivery
here after a flight from Santa Fe,
N. M.. the Minnesota senator urged
party members to recall former
President Harry S. Truman’s sur
prise victory in 1948.
“It should be a solemn warning
never to let ourselves fall victim
to complacency - or to be so con
fident of victory that we do not....
do our damndest to win,” he said.
Humphrey launched a five point
attack on Goldwater charging that
a victory by the Republican presi
dential nominee would mean a vo
luntary Social Security system and
a regressive Income tax.
“His finger - or the finger of
some field commander, as he has
advocated - could be on the nuclear
trigger,” Humphrey said.
The Tennessee Valley Authority
could be sold and farm supports
abolished if Goldwater won in No
vember, he said.
“Federal assistance m uroan re
development and housing programs
could be ended,” and “the social
and economic achievements of the
past three decades could be in
grave jeopardy,” Humphrey said.
“All this could happen, if we let
it,” he said. "If we do, history
will not forgive us — if. indeed,
there are people left with the a
bility and the heart to arite it.”
