View the President's Schedule

A St. visitor—Pres. Febres Cordero of Ecuador. Of all the Latin Am. leaders he is the closest to us in philosophy and politically. He’s a self made businessman who filled his cabinet with people like himself. Our outdoor ceremony was in the cold—28° plus a wind & falling snow. It was really cold—7 spectators including one Marine passed out from the cold.

Our meeting went well.

After lunch—rep’s. of Nat. Geographic came by & presented me with a beautiful painting of Chesapeake bay & a Skipjack (sailboat). A meeting with Judge Kaufman who brought an interim report on organized crime. He chairs our Commission on Org. Crime. His report concerns Labor & crime. It is shocking the extent to which org. crime has moved in & taken control of a number of unions. Stopped by the Dr’s. office for a kind of mini-exam—blood sample, EKG —that sort of thing, preparatory to my 6 month, post operative check-up come Friday.

Then came the St. Dinner and very nice it was—Jessye Norman sang & a good time was had by all. The Pres. & I are now on Leon-Ron terms—which he seemed to appreciate very much.
