Rode both afternoons. The weather was magnificent. The usual movies at night. On Sun. Ron & Doria left by car to fly back to N.Y. We stayed on because Mon. was Columbus day. Sun. evening Jim Watt called from Calif. & tendered his resignation as Sec. of Interior. I accepted with real regret. He’s done a fine job. True he has an unfortunate way of putting his foot in his mouth but he’s really the victim of a 2 1⁄2 year lynching. He knows he no longer can be effective with Congress so he’s being a bigger man than his detractors.
