Dick Wirthlin in with latest poll & while a number of things have improved I dropped 4 pts. with regard to being trustworthy. No question but that reflects the media blitz over the so called Carter papers—about which I knew absolutely nothing. Interviewed by Grits Gresham of “Sports Afield” about guns—when did I get my 1st one etc. Had photos with each Special Agent in Charge of White House detail all the way back to F.D.R. Lunched with Dick Whalen. Their co. (his & his wife) is called “Wires” & is doing great. They’ve never been to the W.H. We’ve put them down for a State Dinner. Cabinet meeting about new legislation regulating banks. Homer & Cathy Penn came by. She is the daughter of a former Eureka College gal—brought some clippings & pictures her mother had written & taken when I visited Eureka in ’42. Lewis Glaser who makes Quill pen sets for lawyers practicing before the Supreme Ct. brought me a set. Presented Paul Boucher award to Larry Cressce for his work with Inspector Generals on waste & fraud. Dolores Ballachino & her husband came in to say hello. She has been corresponding with me for more than 40 yrs. Charles Douglas Horne—ed. London Times & owner Rupert Murdoch dropped in. Horne is on a cane from a horse fall. Finally home & Mother.
