Nov. 5, 1960: Paul Coates reports on a little war over press releases on the upcoming John Wayne film “The Alamo” …. Matt Weinstock writes that CBS-TV is having problems with the IBM RAMAC 305 it's using for election night results because Lyndon Johnson is running for Senate and vice president.

DEAR ABBY: I am an "old-timer" who has started to work with young people on a volunteer basis. I was shocked to discover how many of our children can't read or spell.

What's wrong with our educational system, I wonder?
