Made 1st public announcement ever of “Captive Nation’s Week” & signed proclamation in Rose Garden—it was 92°. N.S.C. meeting re nuclear testing—ruled we’d keep on doing what we were doing but no point in announcing that in the face of all the anti-nukes. We’re doing what we’ve been doing since 1975. Up to Capital Hill & addressed several thousand enthusiastic supporters of Const. Amendment requiring balanced bud. Spoke from W. steps of Capitol. Even with my iron T-shirt on—not as hot as in the Rose Garden—the sun went under a cloud. Back to the Capitol—meetings with some individual Congressmen & Sen’s. Telephone calls to Sens. plugging the Tax bill. Called Anne Higgins who is in hospital for removal of a lung tumor. She’s a great lady & will have my prayers. Ended day with a reception at the W.H. for our Davis Cup Tennis Champs & our champion Ski team. They are great young people & very nice to know.
