. and in the u.k., it is george's day. we are talking about prince william son. the three month old has been christened in central london. now, here is our correspondent there with more on the rather low key event. >> it is a very high profile but a very close profile affair. just a few meters from where i am standing, not, indeed, at buckingham palace, behind me, which is where william was christened in the music room. but this is over there in the chapel royal, a special chapel, but only 22 guest this afternoon. among them, seven godparents, four godfathers and three godmothers, and then there is zara, the cousin of prince william, and it is really a message that kate and william are sending out, a strong message, that even though this young boy is set to become a future monarch of this country, he is, in fact, a little boy who is getting christened today, and really they want that privacy for him that is so important, and we will not get any photographs of this christening, i gather, until tomorrow. there was one taken at the end of the christening service, and that will be with

, that alaska would be an economic boost to the country. >> the george gallup poll in the late 1950s--1956, '57, when congress was debating the alaska statehood bill-- was running in the high 80s for statehood. 80 anything in a gallup poll is eyebrow-raising. >> narrator: yet a few powerful committee chairmen, mostly conservative southern democrats, kept the statehood bill bottled up with no chance for a floor vote. the alaskans needed some kind of political dynamite to explode that logjam, or statehood would never burst free. as 1958 began, alaska's statehood delegation marked the anniversary of their arrival in washington, d.c. they still had no prospect for a vote on statehood. ernest gruening knew one of the keys would be the wily majority leader of the senate. >> we have a majority of members on both houses according to their statements to us. but lyndon johnson could achieve or kill statehood. he has never shown the slightest >> well, he was opposed to it because of the basic support he received from his southern brothers, who were at that time concerned primarily about segrega
