View the President's Schedule

Started day with a Cabinet Meeting to give them the word about helping in the campaign—now that I’m a candidate. Then it was a visitor day. Pres. Spilzak of Yugoslavia was here for a meeting & lunch. He’s a personable & reasonable man. I picked his brains about the Soviet U. He was an Ambas. there for a time. He believes that coupled with their Expansionist philosophy they are also insecure & genuinely frightened of us. He also believes that if we opened them up a bit their leading citizens would get braver about proposing change in their system. I’m going to pursue this. Signed a proclamation designating Nat. Tourism Week. Met with some Trade Assn. Leaders & went upstairs. S.S. got a tip [. . .] that a terrorist act was pointed at the Presidents daughter. I’m inclined to believe they might mean Maureen because she is so visible in her pol. work. She has S.S. protection. On the other hand, Patti screamed & complained so much we took the S.S. detail away at her request. Now S.S. went to her & asked if she would accept it for no more than a week until they could get this informant out of Lebanon & check the story. She said yes. But today’s the 4th day and she’s screaming again about invasion of her privacy & last night she abused the agents terribly. I said take them away from her so she’s again without protection. Insanity is hereditary you catch it from your kids.
