CBS 5-1-88 “Students Exchange” Russia & Brattleboro VT

shared human hopes and fears today seem to diminish those differences at least a bit mark phillips and bob schieffer have that story moscow school number 141 where the kids have always been taught about political heroes but where they’ve got a new and unusual hero these days soviet school children would never be taught their leader was meeting and signing treaties with an unworthy american president there may have been reservations about ronald reagan in the past but now the book on him has changed reagan leads this country wonderfully he says i really feel sure it’s everything on bill right the russians can quite often take a very cynical view of their leadership and the results of mikhail gorbachev’s reforms here are still far from certain but when it comes to arms control summits and better relations with the u.s a discouraging word is hard to find in towns like this in the state where the nuclear freeze movement started there is real hope that what is happening in washington really will slow down the arms race for brattleboro all of this is the payoff after years of working to reduce the nuclear arsenals i think it’s a very fragile thing and not something that we can really count on yet until it’s it’s really sealed and signed while ronald reagan was getting good reviews yesterday from the kids in moscow mikhail gorbachev was getting the same treatment last night at vermont’s brattleboro high where the gorbachev charm offensive seems to be working gorbachev is you know right up there and he’s getting criticism at home but he’s he’s also getting a lot of support he’s done a lot for himself he is by far the most radical um leader the soviet union has ever had and he’s making so many changes at the ladies beauty parlor at number seven kuznetsky street russian women are cultivating the new moscow look and contemplating new ways of looking at america this cold war how we say in russia yeah one in english i think it was too long and i believe that it’s now it’s time to change as brattleboro staunchest republicans joy and dart everett watched gorbachev arrive their feeling was a good treaty for both sides must be based on more than trust alone we must have it it must be passed but it must be passed with safeguards and it must be seriously questioned before it’s passed for russians watching the summit back home something less tangible is at stake for us it’s very nice to feel that that the other people will not be scared of us they’ll trust us here there is hope that a more relaxed atmosphere between the superpowers will lead to more relaxed conditions at home and here recognition that can only happen if the two leaders come to better understand each other [Music] and that’s the cbs evening news until our special broadcast about today’s summit events tonight at 11 30 10 30 central time
