Most important event—the Press conf. By the time I got to it I was mad as h--l. I’d watched the news and seen the witch hunt that is on for Ann Gorsuch at E.P.A. The media is a lynch mob that thinks it smells blood. Then I saw 2 Repub. Sens. Mathias & Pressler join the Dems. on the Foreign relations committee to oppose Adelman (a d--n good man) for appointment to the Arms Control Commission. Maybe being mad helped—it was a good conference & some said the best. They were snooping over another leak—this time the leaker could be risking lives. Khadafy, we’ve been tipped, is planning an air attack on the Sudan as part of a coup to overthrow Pres. Neimieri. We’ve flown A.W.A.C.S. into Egypt ostensibly to engage in a training mission. They are there to help direct Egyptian fighter planes if he tries it. The date is supposed to be the 18th.
