in San Antonio in a house that's one of the most interesting,
prettiest houses in Texas surely, and they're both unusual

On the way to -- well, it's not very dramatic on
the way to San Antonio, although San Antonio is a lovely city.
I'm not getting on with this. This is too much --
One other question about Baylor. The dedication of the
Alkek Tower. What is that?
Well, that was a tower, a research facility, added
to the research facilities they have, given by a man called
Alkek. It was a festivity for the dedication. It was
very pleasant, but it didn't change anything. The building
will make Baylor a more efficient school.

Who is she?
She's Ann Landers, the columnist. And she's very
interested in health problems. She was very helpful to me
when we tried to get the Cancer Acts of '71 passed. Her
column generated about a million letters to Senators and
Congressmen. It was fantastic.
