Another historian notes that any patching of relations "that had seemed possible after Khrushchev's fall evaporated after the Soviet minister of defense, Rodion Malinovsky... approached Chinese Marshal He Long, member of the Chinese delegation to Moscow, and asked when China would finally get rid of Mao like the CPSU had disposed of Khrushchev."

- Paul Hulme, the Postmaster-General of Australia, announced anew design for the nation's 1,500 telephone booths, which he said would be "flat-roofed, made from aluminum and glass" with "a distinctive sign on the roof so that they can be seen from a distance" and "lit continuously inside by a fluorescent strip so that people will have enough light at all times to read directories."

Traveling at 8,300 miles per hour (13,400 km/h), the fourth Mariner started off toward Mars on a seven-month journey. On its original trajectory, the probe would have missed the Red Planet by 150,000 miles (240,000 km), but a correction was made on December 5. Mariner 4 would make its closest approach (within 6,118 miles (9,846 km) of Mars) and return television pictures on July 15, 1965.
- The Nationaldemokratische Partei Deutschlands (NPD), the National Democratic Party of Germany, was founded in West Germany by extreme right-wing members of the Deutsche Reichspartei, the Gesamtdeutsche Partei and the Deutsche Partei.

- On the last day of scheduled games during the 1964 NCAA University Division football season, the #1-ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish blew a 17-0 halftime lead against the USC Trojans at Los Angeles, and lost the game, 20-17. With that loss, the #2-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide (which had closed its season at 10-0-0 with its win over Auburn two days earlier) was voted the #1 ranking by both the Associated Press poll of sportswriters and the United Press International poll of coaches to be recognized by the NCAA as the unofficial college football champion for 1964. At the time, no polling was taken after the postseason bowl games. Alabama would lose in the Orange Bowl to Texas, while the nation's other major unbeaten and untied team, the #2 ranked Arkansas Razorbacks, would win the Cotton Bowl over Nebraska. Since no further polls were taken, however, Arkansas would remain at second place despite its 11-0-0 record.
