The usual weekend except for heavier than usual phone traffic & the additional day (Mon. Columbus Day). We managed to get in rides Sat. & Sun. I called Mrs. Klinghoffer widow of the man the hi-jackers murdered. I’d called her daughters before she arrived in the U.S. She & some other passengers had a stop in Rome to identify the hi-jackers. She told me I’m really hated by them that every few minutes during the ordeal on ship they were sounding off about me. Italy raised our hackles when they smuggled one of the Palestinians who had accompanied the 4 on the plane out of Italy and into Yugoslavia. We have evidence that this top rank aide to Arafat was a conspirator with the hi-jackers. We had sent evidence & a warrant to Italy.

Well it’s Mon. & we’re back at the W.H. Tonite dinner with Ambas. Rockefeller & a few people including Nicholas Gage the writer & son of “Eleni”—a book & a movie & his mother. It was a very pleasant evening—just 16 of us all told.
