A lengthy interview with several editors of “Readers Digest.” I think it went well—most of the Q’s were on foreign policy. A long day filled with meetings & appointments. A rumor started somewhere that I had a heart attack. It was just like the phony rumor during the campaign. We traced that one to a brokers office on Wall Street. N.S.C. meeting—I approved starting a Civil Defense buildup. Right now in a nuclear war we’d lose 150 mil. people. The Soviets could hold their loss down to less than were killed in W.W. II.
