An excerpt from a Tower speech in which he addresses an unnamed political opponent, accusing this opponent of relying on ad hominem attacks, particularly in regard to Tower's voting against the continued funding of the Senate Select Committee on Nutrition and Human Needs. Tower responds to the attacks by describing the program as fiscally irresponsible. The speech is undated but refers to events of 1968 and 1969 as having occurred in the near past.
A 1972 outline of a proposed speech in which Tower would describe his plans to facilitate greater equality for Mexican-Americans in Texas. Tower would argue for the necessity of bilingual education, increased affirmative action legislation, and the governmental support of organizations such as the League of United Latin American Citizens. Of particular note in this document is the visibility of the revision process. Several versions of the speech are included, each annotated by Tower's speechwriting staff.
