At 2:45 A.M. Colin phoned to tell me 2 of our F14’s from the U.S.S. Kennedy shot down 2 Mig 23’s from Libya. There have been signs that Quadafy is antsy about a possible attack on his chemical factory. This time the ship & planes were on their way to Israel & 600 miles East of his factory. When they fastened on to our F-14’s and turned on their afterburners, our pilots decided they were hostile & knocked them down. So back to sleep. Dr. Hutton brought 4 local Doctors in he has lined up for us. Then I had Pearl & Sam for a manicure & haircut. Then a photo outdoors with men who installed our new house security provisions & their wives.

More homework including some changes in Peggy N’s. draft of the Farewell address. Sent it over to Ken D. for any suggestions he might have. Nancy over to rehearse for tonight's program. It’s a big evening in support of the “N.R. drug Center.” 1000 people at $1000 each. A receiving line for a special group of fundraisers then a film clip on scenes from the last 8 yrs. Dinner and a program of Merv Griffin singing—Mary Martin, Don Rickles—we both said a few words. All in all a very pleasant evening with a lot of old friends—Maureen & Mike. Ron is in Yosemite. Home to bed.
