Earlier yesterday, Goldwater made a surprise visit in New York and met with former President Herbert Hoover and Francis Cardinal Spellman, Roman Catholic archbishop of New York. After flying in from Washington, Goldwater met first with Hoover in the Waldorf Towers suite where the former president will observe his 90th birthday Monday. He then visited with Cardinal Spellman in the rectory of St. Patrick's Cathedral for about 30 minutes. Goldwater said he and the cardinal discussed general problems of the world, including the recent Harlem race riots.

"I've shaken hands with him before," Goldwater said of Cardinal Spellman. "But I wanted to talk with him. This is the first time I did that." He did not comment on his meeting with Hoover.

The telegram said: "Your efforts to obtain equal treatment for all in the field of education are to be applauded. As I have stated on many occasions, I am opposed to all forms of federal aid to education. But if despite my opposition, such legislation should be enacted, it should go on equal terms to all nonprofit schools, public and private, secular and parochial." President Johnson also sent a telegram to the convention saying: "You are meeting as the 88th Congress is completing a record of support for education unmatched in our history.

But still more needs to be done to assure educational opportunity for all and to help raise the quality of education throughout our society.
