View the President's Schedule

Started the day visiting our embassy to unveil a placque commemorating my visit there. Addressed a crowd which included familys of embassy staff both American & Brazilian and the student body of the American school. Then a final meeting with the President—we have established a real friendship. On to Sao Paulo further south in Brazil—a city of 15 mil. people. Had to fly in Marine 1 from the airport to the Gov’s. Palace. Addressed an audience of Brazilian & Am. Bus. leaders. Americans later said—speech did more for America than anything that had ever happened—said I was 1st speaker to ever receive a standing ovation. While waiting to speak I called some of our Congressmen re committee vote on MX—learned later on return to Brazilia we won by 1 vote.
