I am angry, saa aali disturbed"a.t the treatment accorded Vice
President Nixon by certain elements in Peru. The sadistic exhibition
by the demonstrators was not an attack on Nixon but was an attack on
the office which he represents., an~ because of that, an attack on the people
of the United States. The demonstration was uncalled for and is a blot on
the good name of Peru, one of our oldest and best friends in all of Latin
America. I am saddened that the dignity and the honor of the people and
the government of Peru was besmirched by this outrageous incident.
Mr. Nixon is to be commended for the courage and dignity he displayed
in meeting this and other unpleasant incidents which have occurred
during his tour.
These incidents seem to indicate a well-developed and well

this country and Latin America as a whole) Out of these shameful
