Moroccos foreign minister came by for an early morning visit. Mission was to determine if our friendship for King Hassan was still on firm footing. I believe I convinced him it is. Truth is I do like the King.

Later I did about 10 min. Q&A with 27 editorial writers from all over the country. Some revealed some deep bias’s particularly regarding the Nicaragua situation.

Then an interview with “Business Week” & a reception in the Roosevelt Rm. for Bill Smith. Ed’s confirmation still hanging fire. I’ll take 2 versions of my radio broadcast to Camp David—one for if he’s confirmed before noon Sat. & the other if he isn’t.

Had some photo sessions—Reserve Officer’s Assn. Officers including a Col.—1st woman ever chosen to head up the Assn. Then 2 non-coms of 3rd Infantry (my own guard) presented a mounted shell casing used in the salute on Inaugural day. Rcv’d. the John S. Logan award from Nat. Womens Relief. Corps. (aux. of G.A.R.). Photo with our Ambas. & family to Suriname. Then little Kristen Ellis the March of Dimes Poster girl who had brought us Lucky appeared with “Dear Abby.” Abby in her column had asked people to send $1 to me for “March of Dimes” as they’d sent dimes to F.D.R. in 1938. We had mail bags stuffed with letters—so far we’ve received more than $40,000. Off to Camp David. The weather was drizzly up there and some snow remaining. Still no news on Ed.
