Sen. John Stennis – Meet The Press – Aug. 1, 1965 With our involvement in Vietnam amping up by the day in 1965, concerns over just how much this excursion into the abyss was going to cost began to surface. When President Johnson announced the Military budget ceiling to fight the war in Vietnam was to be $100 Billion dollars, questions arose as to whether this was enough, too much – just what was this buying? Handed the job of explaining the cost was Senator John Stennis (D-Miss.) who was acting Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Chairman of the Senate Preparedness Committee and acting Chairman of the Senate Defense Appropriations Committee. Here is an interview from Meet The Press with Senator John Stennis, broadcast on August 1, 1965. Another piece of the puzzle.

Monitor. Now invite you to meet the press. America's press conference of the air. Winner of every major reward in its field. Today's guest on meet the press will be Senator john Stennis, democrat of Mississippi who is acting chairman of the Senate Armed services committee and chairman of its preparedness committee.

That was left in fact took any movable that could conceivably be of value to them before they withdrew back into the jungle surrounding dunks. Y 10,000 Hamlet chiefs have been assassinated. A kidnapped within the last three years. Not a very cheerful story for a sunday night monitor, but we do try to get the facts. Join us this sunday on NBC radio. Did you know that smokey bear has helped prevent more than a million forest fires since 1942. Now that's a great record. But Smokey still need your help. Nine out of 10 forest fires are caused by carelessness, so always follow smokies rules hold all matches too cold, crush all smokes dead out and drown that campfire, stir the ashes and drown it again. Remember only you can prevent forest fires and now meet the press.
