Late to office—Cap called—upset by Soviet Ambassadors appearance on T.V. last nite after visit to St. Dept. He was smiling & jovial while he was talking about the murder of our Major Nicholson. Frankly I saw it & I was too [upset].
Met with Pres. Niemeri of Sudan—he’s O.K. I think we’re going to be able to help him. Quadaffi’s giving him a bad time. Issues lunch—nothing of world shaking note. Lyn N. came by, he’s been representing us in Europe re our walkout of UNESCO. Needed a little guidance—do we want back in etc. I explained he was simply to observe whether any effort is being made to clean up their act. If so then we’ll see whether we want in. No effort is being made & it looks like Eng., Japan & some others may follow us out. My favorite paper??!! The Wash. Post came by for an interview—Cannon & Hoffman plus an editor. I dont think I gave them anything to run with.
Did some Congress photos—one made me an honorary Fire Chief in N.J. Another presented me with a chair. The best was a magnificent painting of me. But most touching was a young mother, a grandmother & 3 children—2 boys & a girl 12, 10 & 9. All have Ushers Syndrome—the hearing deteriorates & they go blind.
A farewell reception for Jeanne K. Then some tapings.
