Summary note
SPRING Spring arrives in New York but brings with it an un-seasonal snowfall of up to ten inches; traffic is clogged, buses, trains, and airlines delayed. It's one of the heaviest late-season snowfalls for the Big City but the kids enjoy the sudden school holiday with abandon. TEXAS DROUGHT The disastrous six-month drought in the Southwest kills off cattle and ruins crops. Water must be bought at coin-operated towers and trucked to dying herds. Farmers face further economic setbacks next month when they are faced to sell their calves at a loss. LYNDON B. JOHNSON ON GUAM President Johnson arrives at Guam for two-day top level strategy conferences with South Vietnam leaders. Later, Hanoi reveals its rejection of an earlier offer for direct negotiations with the U.S. The talks end and American officials predict no change in the war. BICYCLE TRANSPORT Films from Hanoi's news agency show a primitive bicycle transportation system, used to keep supply lines open. U.S. bombing raids in the north have forced the Cong to resort to this crude method of transport. NOISE MACHINE Zurich installs a clock to end all clocks. It's a functioning timepiece, surrealistically designed, and located in a central location. But for fifteen nerve shattering minutes, each morning and afternoon, it sounds of weird noises. The locals are up in arms! MEDICAL SIMULATOR Something new in medical training, a computerized dummy which simulates almost any possible function and reaction of a normal human patient. It speeds the training of medical students who are shown any likely medical emergency they may encounter. COLLEGE VACATIONS The annual exodus to Ford Lauderdale brings vacationing college students from all over the country. Local law officials are on guard against the riots of past years, and have provided organized reaction such as street dances and supervised activities. TWIGGY Britain's top "mini-model" arrives in New York for a visit. She is "Twiggy", a 17 year old skinny Cockney girl who weighs 92 pounds and measures 31-22-32! Her boyfriend-manager answers most of the questions from the press and "Twiggy" most wants to go to Disneyland. "MILLIE" PREMIERE The New York World Premiere of Universal's lavish color-musical, "Thoroughly Modern Millie", attracts stars and celebrities. Beatrice Lillie, May Tyler Moore, Carol Channing, and James Fox all attend. The critics hail all, including Julie Andrews, as delightful while acclaiming the film as one of the season's big hits. 'CYCLE RACE Daredevil motorcycle riders compete in the nation's richest, longest, and fastest 'cycle race, the "Daytona 200". Spills are frequent and the pace is dangerously fast. Gary Nixon of Baltimore wins, setting a lap average record of over 98 miles an hour, and gets $5,000.
