Do they go in this fall?
Yes, and I've given some dogwoods, but I'm planning to
give another hundred or maybe 150 more to decorate the key
bridge which is an entrance to Georgetown from Virginia, which
is opposite to Mrs. Mahoney's house and also happens to be a
major exit and entrance to the capital. Those are the three
things I've given. I'm also planning to pay for a booklet
which will show before and after--photographs of befores and
dream sketches of afters of various parts of the city.
Where are the azaleas along Pennsylvania Avenue?
They're all the way from Pershing Square to the
area dominated by the capital architect, Mr. Stewart, who does
not wish any azaleas or anything else planted in his dominion,
which is directly around the capitol itself, within about two
blocks of the capitol in every direction. Mr. Stewart is in
charge, and the National Park Service can't do anything
with Mr. Stewart, and Mrs. Johnson hasn't even tried--he sounds
so impossible. I think that's about that. I think I've got
it all out without doing it fairly well. Then I'll take a
swim and we can talk about Bob Kennedy's campaign and the
Princess Lillienne and the bill for cancer, heart and stroke.
How's that? And characterize friends and allies. (break in
