Lasker:

I take up the rugs on the second floor, and people can danoe in the hall or the drawing room or any place. People really mill around as much as dance. I never think they dance enough. They seem to be milling mostly.

Q:

I remember seeing a piano in that little reception room off the main entrance.

Lasker:

Yes. Yes, well, that was there because a friend of mine is a song writer. He was supposed to come and use that piano, but that has happened very seldom and I've since sent it to storage, because it's too big for the room.

Then I recently -- let's see, on the 20th of April Mrs. Johnson invited me and Mr. and Mrs. Charles Englehard and Mr. Andre Meyer and Mr. C.B. Smith and Mr. and Mrs. John to come for the weekend to the LBJ Renoh. We left around noon in Englehard's plane, which is larger than a Caravelle, and stopped in Washington to pick up Lynda. It took about four hours from New York to the ranch, and when we arrived we changed our clothes , and drove around the ranch, which was in full flower.

Q:

Where would a plane of that size land?
