Former U.S. Secretary of Education Terrel H. Bell says he left the Reagan Administration in 1984 after coming to the conclusion that "I had done about all I could do.''

"As I read the constant pounding on me in the conservative press, in the Conservative Digest and National Review, which is what the President reads, I knew that the second term wouldn't be too good,'' Mr. Bell said in an interview this month with The Chronicle of Higher Education.

After returning to Utah, where he is currently a professor of educational administration at the University of Utah, Mr. Bell said, "I went on ski runs that I had skied on for 30 years and I fell down. I couldn't believe it. If I had stayed in Washington any longer, just think what a hopeless case I would have been.''
