Sinatra Wows President Nixon at D.C. Bash

Following Frank Sinatra’s Tuesday White House appearance to an audience of about 250, President Nixon invited him to a private meeting, told the singer, “You must get out of retirement.” Replied Sinatra, “After tonight, I’ll have to think about it.”

Earlier, the President had led two standing ovations, one following “Old Man River” and the finale, “The House I Live In.” The President complimented him with: “Frank Sinatra is to American music what the Washington Monument is to Washington—he’s the top.”

After the concert Sinatra called daughter Nancy Jr. (Mrs. Hugh Lambert), got the sad news from her at Century City Hospital that she had lost the expected baby.

Nancy went home yesterday, is OK, plans to play her Sahara Vegas May 15 date as skedded— and also to infanticipate soon.
