Diary Entry - 01/08/1982

Friday, January 8, 1982

Already our top secret meeting on Federalism has leaked & is front page press even though I have made no decision on it. A team is off to Peking to tell them at 1st hand we’re going to sell F5E’s & some F104’s to Taiwan. We’re softening things a little. Taiwan really wants the more advanced F5G’s—They’ll have to come later. Off to Camp David where it was only 8 degrees. We ran an old movie, “One Way Passage.”—Kay Francis, Wm. Powell. It was wonderful. Sat. took a long walk in a snow storm then spent the afternoon getting a lot of mail done & tidying up a speech. I’ve learned there is a China Lobby and it has it’s moles in the State Dept. The Post had a story on why we should cling to the P.R.C., & never mind Taiwan. A cartoon carried out the same theme. The timing is amazing because no word has been spoken about plans & I’ve told no one what my decision will be. Sun. a short walk—with wind chill it was 52 degrees below zero
