" The former • Commerce Secretary spoke Sunday at the final session of .» convention of 300 delegates Who ^oted'to merge 1C liberal organizations into the progressive ell- tens of America. Included among the organizations fused Into the BOA were the national citizens Political Action Committee and the Independent Citizens Committee of th$ arts, sciences and professions.

"The lukewarm liberals are-people who try to sit on nof only two but three chairs at a .time, and they are the people who get us Into trouble.
