Sat. off—except that Bill Clark & others didn’t take the day off. A steady stream of manila envelopes kept coming to my desk. Spent the day reading. Come evening, White Tie & Tails—The Gridiron dinner. I think it was the best yet. The smash of the evening was Nancy. This had to be one of the best kept secrets. The Repub. skit was a choral rib of Nancy about clothes. She had left the head table supposedly for the powder room. Suddenly there she was on stage—even the cast wasn’t in on the secret. She was dressed in a hokey costume and sang a parody of “Second Hand Rose”—Second hand clothes. She was carrying a plate which she smashed as a finale. It brought the house down. She got 2 standing ovations. Maybe this will end the sniping.
