Off to Eureka for the 50th anniversary of the class of ’32 (my class). Left at 1:20 for Peoria. Helicoptered right to the Reagan field house at Eureka—donned robe and addressed the graduation gathering class of ’82. Used the occasion to launch our START program for reducing nuclear weapons for Russia & U.S. It was well received. Helicoptered back to Peoria—met with Class of ’32 reunion (my class). A big turnout considering only 37 remain alive out of 45. Then met with Scholarship Committee raising funds for program in my name. Wound up meetings with group re-doing our old home in Dixon. Then to the Alumni dinner where I was enrolled in Eureka Athletic Hall of Fame. It was a warm nostalgic time. Left for Chi. on A.F.1.
