NotesThe scrapbook contains these highlights from her address:

"Really a great thrill to be able to attend conference...There were no newsmen allowed at the big table while the conference was in session. Our tape recorder at the conference had to be wound often and we had to take turns going up to the front of the room to wind it up....We expected to be thrown out but no comments were made about it. Would like to explain more fully to the Russians about the many blessings in America and just what 'Thanksgiving' means to us here...

Some of the places visited were: Italy, Isle of Capril: In Rome, Titanic Studio gave party for entire group. Had aduience with POPE in Rome: Munich, enjoyed bed most. Belgium, guests of King on Kings Day. Attended garden party given by Queen Mother at Lambeth Palace. Visited Lady Astor's home. Recipes from the different countries and places visited, will be printed in the new 'Bea Johnson Cook Book'."
