She is especially partial to the nearby Virgin Islands and has enjoyed several vacations there. Daughter Lynda Bird and her husband, Marine Capt. Charles S, Robb, honeymooned at Saint Johns, in the Virgin Islands. Thus It appears that Johnson has been under considerable family pressure to find a winter vacation land away from the ranch.

A third of Pittsburgh's 3,000 teachers who struck last Friday planned large-scale picketing, while classrooms remained vacant for the third straight day In the Wellston, Mo., school district.

Sunday night, after 22 hours of talks between strikers and a special city two-man panel, San Francisco Mayor Joseph Alloto announced that the walkout was over arid there wot/Id be no reprisals against those who struck, In Pittsburgh, Albert Fondy, president of the Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers, said "the biggest picket line In the history of Pittsburgh" would be thrown around the Board of Education building.

The governor can sign it, let it become law without his .signature or veto It. After the bill was passed, the Florida Education Association said It was Inadequate and called the strike.
