Four atdes briefed newsmen midway through the holiday week, giving emphasis to progress in/ domestic and diplomatic fields and criticizing Congress for not passirig major Nixon proposals. Ground rules of the briefing prevented identifying the aides and held release of their observations utitil the weekend. Domestically, in addition to postal and draft changes, the Nixon years have brought swift but peaceful school desegregation, an aide said. He cited the change since 1968 when 6.1 per cent of Negroes in the 11 Southern states attended desegregated schools. Now 90 per cent are in desegregated programs.

The President's revenue sharing plan never even reached the hearing stage in Congress. But, the administration is expected to boost it once more in the 92nd Congress with an even greater request than the proposed $5 billion five-year plan. Among the foreign policy accomplishments, the aides listed a reversal of the course in Vietnam, a new global peace strategy based in the Nixon Doctrine, ratification of the nuclear nonproliferation pact and the start of the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks with Russia.
