View the President's Schedule

Dr. Hutton & nurse came by at 8 A.M. while I was still in bed. Drew some blood & started me on my every 15 min. schedule of drinking 10 oz. of Golightly. No breakfast. First meeting discussion of who should represent us at Chiangs funeral in Taiwan. I suggested Paul Laxalt & possibly Warren Burger—found out later they couldn’t do it.

N.S.C.—Have learned about a luggage search the French have been doing on Americans including govt. personnel on official visits. They do this secretly & collect a lot of information.

Our son Mike stopped by for a short visit. He’s in town on business having to do with his upcoming book.

At 10 A.M. phoned an assembly at King School—the W.H. adopted school. I made a little speech re the upcoming Martin Luther King (for whom the school is named) holiday.

At 10:30 A.M. a short meeting about upcoming St. of The Union Address. Some desk time then at 11:30 Geo. Shultz meeting. He left me with “Gorbys” book “Perestroika.” A quick lunch after completing my imbibing of 1 gallon of Golightly. Then at 1 P.M. Nancy & I departed on S. Lawn for Bethesda Hospital—her mammogram & my checkup (6 mo.) after surgery. It was the whole works—colonoscopy, electrocardiogram, CAT scan, stress test on treadmill, chest Xray and prostate. Everything was judged as way above par—say like good for someone half my age. So on to Camp D. after 4 hours. Usual movie etc. I phoned Mrs. Roger Stevens in Fla. to have her remind me of something she had mentioned to me & I’d said I would look into it. It had to do with Japan still killing whales.
