Up at 7:30 & on our way at 8:45. We left L.A. in rain & landed in Seattle in snow—the most that has ever been recorded there. I spoke briefly to a reception of major donors & then to the fundraising lunch. All of this was in behalf of Sen. Slade Gorton’s re-election campaign. Raised $700,000 which is almost 3 x the largest fundraiser ever held in the State of Wash.

Then back to the airport where we were greeted by 25 youngsters who are part of a group called story tellers for peace. They learn to tell stories—Grimms fairy tales etc. This group has been selected to go to the Soviet U. next spring to tell stories to the children of Russia.

Now airborne & on our way to Wash.—arrival time 9:15 P.M. Arrived to a temp. of 27° with a wind chill factor down to –10°. A 13 yr. old boy & his family were waiting to meet us. The lad has a brain tumor & is a great supporter of ours.
