A late start 10 A.M.—briefing for interview with several journalists for U.S.A. Today. I think the interview went well. They were all friendly & their Q’s were fun.
Then over to E.O.B. to speak to the young people who had been winners nation wide in the essay contest on the bi-centennial of the Const. & to announce the top winner. In this case it was winners—with an “s.” There was a tie—so 2 champs. Then it was over to the S. Lawn with Nancy to get in Marine 1. From there to Andrews A.F.B. to A.F.1.
We went to Miami Fla. to greet Pope John Paul II on his arrival for a tour of the U.S. There were 5,000 people on hand at the airport. Then later in the afternoon we joined him again at an art museum where he & I had a one & one—joined later by Nancy for a 2 on 1. He’s truly a great man. We did our farewell speeches before the press & went our separate ways. Our’s was back to A.F.1 & Wash. where we arrived about 10 P.M. It was a most rewarding day.
