  • Description

    President Johnson extended informal hospitality to New Zealand Prime Minister Holyoake Monday (20 July).

    The president took Mr. Holyoake by the arm and sauntered to the back lawn where he pointed to a 40-foot tree. He said that this was one of two little leaf linden trees presented to the White House in 1937 by New Zealand. Mr. Johnson said that Franklin D. Roosevelt had planted them. The president broke off a sprig, handing it to Mr. Holyoake.

    Then the two leaders wandered into the nearby Rose Garden and inspected the summer blossoms. Mr. Holyoake bent down to pick a purplish flower which he later carried into the president's office along with his linden sprig.

    (Mr. Holyoake Saturday completed two days of talks with U.S. Secretary of State Dean Rusk and Paul Hasluck, Australian Minister for External Affairs. The three Anzus pact nations jointly expressed their concern over aggression in Southeast Asia at the end of their annual meeting).
