(Studio) Nation and one state, NV, observe Veterans Day; rest of states observe it next month president Carter goes to Arlington National Cemetery.
REPORTER: John Chancellor

(Arlington National Cemetery) President Carter's relations with vets' groups have been alternately warm and cool this year; older vets didn't like pardon of Vietnam war draft evaders and some Vietnam vets say White House efforts to help them haven't gone far enough. President seems to think of these things as he makes speech. [CARTER - says that since he's been in office and Max Cleland has been head of Veterans Administration, they've tried to improve vet benefits, and that Congress has responded well.] Admin. is now forming plan to concentrate on hard core of about 10% of men and women who were in Vietnam and continue to have readjustment problems.
