View the President's Schedule

A late start 10 A.M. 1st meeting some unhappy news about Ed Meese. An independent counsel found some papers re an oil pipeline near Israel & pvt. sector involvement that might show Ed knew of some thing that would be a violation of the ethics bill. We’ll have to wait but from what I’ve heard so far I think Ed is more victim than violator of anything.

N.S.C.—On our Contra aid problem we may be about 15 Dems. short of what we need. Then some talk as to whether we can jiggle our proposal so as to win some of those votes. I like our proposal the way it is.

Later in the morning a Personnel time—then lunch & a chance to catch up on some reading. After lunch Mark Weinberg brought in his Mother & Father, brother & sister & her husband for photos. A nice family.

Then over to E.O.B. to address a meeting of officials of State Legislators. Back to a departure photo & meeting with Geo. Shultz. His subject was middle east & how to get cooperation out of P.M. Shamir. We’re sending Phil Habib over to see King Hussein.

And then over to East Room to greet N.C.A.A. Nat. champion football team—the Miami Hurricanes. I was the smallest man on the platform & I’m 6&1" & weigh 190.

Back to Oval O. for an update on Ed M. by A. B. Culvahouse. Nothing new. So upstairs for rest of afternoon.
