Spoke at the convention in Kansas City, they had selected the Philippines , which was surrounded by water, beginning the eradication of polio.

It is a gut-born disease, in Nigeria, they had hired an Imams daughter, she had done something illegal, she was fired, her father put out an edict that Rotary polio eradication was designed to eradicate them  by making them sterile.  This caused a lot of problems.

When taxing on the first trip, I looked back and saw the passengers all standing, not seated as regulations required.  I made an announcement, " all passengers shall be seated and secure your seat belts immediately or I will turn this aircraft around and return to the gate"
We secured the cockpit door, proceeded to take off, and. At 10,000 feet there was a knock at the cockpit door, and a gentlemen entered, and he asked,"Who gave that order to be seated?"
The cockpit crew tilted their heads downward, I turned and replied, 'I did, and who are you?
He replied, "I am the Vice President of United Airlines, and when we land, you are fired from this assignment".
The door closed, then three other me came into the cockpit over the next few minutes, all asking the same questions.
Eventually another fellow knocked on the door, and announced, Mr. Reagan would like to see you "
Mr Reagan asked to see me, he says, "are you the person the made that announcement?"
"Yes, I made that announcement".
There was some murmuring, Reagan turned to me and said, " We want you to be our pilot for the rest of our campaign".
I replied, " Sir, I would be pleased to serve, however  I have been informed that when we land I am no longer going to be on this assignment".
Reagan replied, " well, we will see about that".
I never saw the Vice President of United Airlines again.
