View the President's Schedule

Dave Packard & 3 of his commission plus Cap W. came by to give me a verbal pre-view of the report they’ll be presenting to me re the Defense Dept. As I had hoped when I created the Commission they will report all the fine things Cap has achieved over there which will refute the drumbeat of propaganda that has most of the country believing the Dept. is an extravagant spendthrift. There will be recommendations for certain organizational changes but even here they are things Cap would like to see done. Another regional press luncheon and as always a good time. They are all so different from the blasé, adversarial Wash. press.

Interview with Lou Cannon & Hoffman—Wash. Post. Heaven only knows how that will turn out. Then I spent 2 hrs. in the family theatre rehearsing for tomorrow nites press conf.

At 6:30 Nancy & I go to the St. Dept. & surprise Merme who is honored guest at a reception. She was surprised & especially so because we brought Dennis with us. She thought he’d gone back to Sacramento & she’d been upset about that.
