The United States Olympic Committee has chosen Detroit, Michigan, as it's nominee for the 1968 Olympic Games. Should Detroit be selected, as result of your deliberations in Baden-Baden, I want to assure you are the warmest and most cordial welcome in the United States. Detroit is a center of a great sports community in central United States. We are anxious to open our doors in this section of the country and indeed throughout the entire United to you all. To share our nation and our hospitality with participants and spectators from all over the world. I appreciate this opportunity to appear before you, and may all of you have the wisdom ascribed to the Olympian gods in arriving at your very difficult decision, thank you.
