A.F.1 again this time to Cinn. Ohio. First stop was a tour of Proctor Gambles new H.Q. now under construction. It is a most imaginative & beautiful structure. This is part of a joint govt. (local) & pvt. enterprise development of downtown Cinn. Then to a rally at Fountain Square. At least 15,000 people & definitely partisan—on our side.

On the way back to the airport—stopped the whole motorcade to say hello to a bunch of hard hats working on freeway construction. I believe they are for me—it was a most pleasant 20 min’s. Two of them were attractive young girls—one running a giant bulldozer. On to Decatur Ill. A tour of Archer Daniels Midland. They are experimenting with Hydro ponic farming. On 4 acres under glass they produce 4000 pounds of lettuce every day in Hydro ponic trays. All employees in that project are “Handicapped.”

Then to Milliken U. for agri. seminar—same routine as in Mo. then back to Wash.—Watched Conv. on T.V. Jeanne Kirkpatrick was excellent in a Foreign Policy address & Katherine Ortega was good as the Keynote speaker. The enthusiasm of the delegates was genuine.
