Monday, Sept. 25, 1967. Last night was one of those bleak nights when the shadows take over. We both woke up about 3:30 AM and talked and talked and talked about when and how to make the statement that Lyndon is not going to be a candidate again.
Today is the anniversary of the 1964 Nurse Training Act — There was a severe shortage of nurses in the early 1960s, and the Act created new training and financial aid opportunities for nursing students.
To commemorate the anniversary, the LBJ Presidential Library is offering free admission all month for nurses and nursing students.

In the aftermath of the assassination of President Kennedy, people from all over the world wrote to the First Family expressing their sympathy and respect.
The JFK Library recently opened a new series of condolence mail from Mrs. Kennedy’s personal papers containing many of these letters. Bob Thorn, a thirteen-year old wrote:
"It was kind of my fault because I feel I wasn’t a good student. My mark in American History, (in which we were studying about the government and the President) was a C… Next term I promise you I’ll get an A."
Lady Bird’s Lemon Squares
Here’s another First Family recipe for the holidays — Lemon Squares! According to the note at the bottom of the recipe, they were a favorite of Lady Bird Johnson’s.
"The cook at the LBJ Ranch keeps them in the freezer so Mrs. Johnson will always have them when she wants a snack or a delicious ending to a meal!"
The LBJ Library has many more of Lady Bird’s recipes digitized here.
