Nixon-Vietnam war conference cancelled

A conference on President Nixon and the Vietnam war, sponsored by the Nixon library and to be held April 28 -29, has been cancelled due to lack of interest. Library officials said only seven people registered out of a mailing of 10,500 invitations. They would need at least 200 attendees' paying $180 in order to sustain the event. Organizers say they might try to reschedule the conference for next year. The cancellation comes at a time when the library is preparing to accept 46 million pages of records and 3,700 hours of recordings of the Nixon presidency from the National Archives and Records Administration.
