Sat. a quiet day of catching up on reading. Sunday back to the W.H. early. This afternoon the reception for the Kennedy Center honorees—Lena Horne, Danny Kay, Gian Carlo Menotti, Arthur Miller & Isaac Stern. Then to the K. Center for the program. The Shultz’s & the Roger Smiths (G.M.) in our box. The show got a little political this time—film biogs. of Lena dwelt on her participation in the civil rights demonstrations. For Arthur Miller it was his persecution by Sen. McCarthy etc. The show closed with a production number by Roberta Peters opera star & a cast of hundreds dedicating the finale to me as they sang “Let There Be Peace.” I made it a point to be the 1st to stand & applaud when the last note was sung.
