Vietnam policy opponent speaks at UMass

Senator Wayne Morse, a Democrat from Oregon and an outspoken critic of U.S. policy in Vietnam, spoke at UMass. The Executive Board sponsored buses from Smith, at 75 cents a ticket. The senator questioned President Johnson’s methods of seeking peace and condemned U.S. escalation. He advocated for the enclave approach, where American soldiers would hold their ground but not expand into enemy territory, and an appeal to the United Nations. Senator Morse also showed how paying for Vietnam affected domestic welfare measures.
