    Initials


    ATTENDED TWO MEETINGS FOR ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE CEREMONY, WITHOUT KNOWING WHAT THE CONTENT OF THE SPEECHES WAS GOING TO BE LIKE. ON MY REQUEST FOR A DRAFT EMBARGOED COPY OF THE SPEECH BY THE STATE PRESIDENT I WAS TOLD A REQUEST WOULD BE MADE TO HIM. WHEN I WAS HANDED THE SPEECH COPY YESTERDAY. I WAS TOLD THAT PURELY ON THE STRENGTH OF THE FACT THAT THE CEREMONY WAS GOING TO BE FILMED BY VISNEWS, AND THAT WE NEEDED AN ADVANCE COPY. THE PRESIDENT, WHO APPARENTLY NEVER WORKS FROM PREPARED SPEECHES, DECIDED HE HAD TO SIT DOWN AND WRITE ONE. SO I FELT RATHER ORI??? TO DO SOME FILM IT MAY STILL HAVE SOME USE ASKEW.
