things for the library. The library is very handsome, very well
run, and my impression is that the School of Government is going
very well -- Johnson's School of Government.

Did you go to Los Angeles?
Yes. And to Beverly Hills. I found a pretty house in
Bel Air overlooking the city. It was very enjoyable. I have
many pleasant friends there who entertain beautifully, including
Mrs. Bloomingdale, a great friend of Mrs. Reagan's, and Mrs.
Armand Deutch. In fact, all the people I know there turned out
to be big Republicans and all friends of the Reagans. With the
exception of people connected to the universities, it's not very
stimulating as far as anything to do with medicine goes, but there
are very good doctors there who are people interested in research,
so that part of it was fun. I can't remember any one outstanding
occasion that was astonishing, but it is fun sometimes to find
yourself sitting next to Gregory Peck or Charlton Heston or somebody
like that, who go to these parties. They're so much a part
of the folk lore of the country that you're always startled to
see them in life.
What happened? I did give a very enjoyable party at La
Grenouille, which was larger than ever.
Was this at Christmastime?
