Shades of Déjà Vu—a meeting with the Sherpas who are preparing for the Tokyo summit. They wanted to be sure I’d approve “terrorism” as a subject. My answer? H--l yes. Fred Fielding came by to tell me he wanted to return to civilian life. As always I said yes & thanked him for all he’s done. Actually he stayed longer than he’d planned to. Now he has to make some money. A memorial service has been set up for Fri. in Houston for the 7 heros who lost their lives yesterday.

Incidentally phone calls & wires poured in with nice words about my 5 min. speech yesterday on T.V. Now this afternoon I had a tougher job—phone calls to the families of the 7. All of them asked that we continue the space program—that’s what their loved ones would have wanted.
