For the Record

February 1977
National Review;2/18/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 6, p188
The article presents news briefs related to social and political developments in the United States. It is reported that W. Clement Stone, former President Richard Nixon's bankroller, plans to raise $1 million to help elect Republican Richard B. Ogilvie, former governor of Illinois, as mayor of Chicago in special June 7 election. Joint Chiefs of Staff has replied to recently retired Air Force intelligence chief General George S. Keegan, whose parting gesture was an alarming interview about U.S.-Soviet Union military relations. A U.S. Army study on North Atlantic Treaty Organization nuclear tactics reveals that by the time a request to fire nuclear weapons went up and down chain of command, 24 hours would have elapsed-time for Warsaw Pact troops to be in West Germany.
