The Soviets have walked out of the START talks but not so definitely as in the I.N.F. talks. This is regular time for holiday break and they didn’t say they wouldn’t be back. They just said they were unable at this time to set a date for their return. Our dead Navy pilot is being returned to us by the Syrians. We still dont know cause of death. After a couple of routine meetings & lunch with Geo. B. I left for Indianapolis. Addressed the Nat. Forum on Excellence in Ed. About 2000 teachers, students, state legislators, Govs., School Board members etc. Was well received although I’m sure the few from N.E.A. weren’t happy. They were on record as saying that if I didn’t come with a pledge of more money for Ed. the meeting would be a “sham.” Well I didn’t come with any pledge—to the contrary I told them Fed. money was not the answer. I was given a very warm reception. Was photo’d with about 25 State Repub. leaders—then back on A.F.1 to Wash. Hopped over to the Hilton & spoke briefly to the annual A.E.I. dinner—then home—a phone call to Auto Racer Bobby Allison & a dinner crowd at the Waldorf where he was getting the Winston Cup & now to bed.
