Another bright day. Howard B. will be back around noon. Ken D. & I talked about the Grove City bill. It presents a problem. It passed overwhelmingly in both houses but it is a lousy bill I’d like to veto—but the veto would be overridden & this could adversely affect our candidates.

Ken talked about having some W.H. stag dinners for small groups of public leaders. Then I had some desk time. Colin N.S.C. came in at 10:30 & brought in Ambas. Bandar (Saudi Arabia). We talked about missile base being built [. . .] Then Chinese F. Minister Wu came for his meeting. It was a good meeting.

Had lunch with Paul Laxalt—it was a good visit. Then in the East Room I took photos with each of our Winter Olympic teams. Then we adjourned to the Rose Garden where I spoke to them & rcv’d. an Olympic team warm up suit. They were a great bunch of young people. A brief Cabinet meeting to report on N.A.T.O. meeting.

Then a short Ec. briefing. I approved an outside committee to look at answers to Brady Commission report. Photos with officers of U.S. League of Savings Institutions. A long taping session then a meeting with Leadership of Nat. Jewish Coalition—about 40 from all over country.

Got my sneeze shot & upstairs.
