  • Emperor Hirohito, breaking with 2,600 years of tradition, left Japan -- something no other Japanese emperor has ever done -- to meet with President Nixon in Alaska. After the meeting, he will tour Western Europe on a trip intended to symbolize the re-emergence of Japan as a world power and her desire for recognition of her new political and economic power. [New York Times]
  • President Nixon arrived in Anchorage, Alaska, for his historic meeting with Emperor Hirohito. Prior to the meeting, the President drove to the home of Walter Hickel, whom he ousted from his cabinet, for a meeting described by aides as a reconciliation and as an indication of Mr. Hickel's desire to re-enter national politics. [New York Times]
  • New York City Mayor John Lindsay began a three-day political trip in Phoenix, Ariz., where he criticized former President Lyndon Johnson and his "politics of consensus." Although the Mayor said again that he was not running for the Democratic presidential nomination, Rep. Morris Udall, who endorsed Senator Edmund Muskie on Saturday, said that Mr. Lindsay could have a chance in a deadlocked convention. [New York Times]
  • A controversy was reported brewing among nine Western states, Congress and the Atomic Energy Commission over the danger from leftover radioactive sands from uranium processing mills. The controversy centers on millions of tons of uranium tailings that are used as building material and are known to contain radioactive elements that could cause cancer. [New York Times]
