Old friend Jack Hume dropped by with a proposal to get tax reform off dead center—but I think it’s already moving.
Over to E.O.B. for a pitch on Nicaragua to an overflow crowd of leaders of a number of supporting organizations. Then after our usual issues briefing lunch, a meeting with Stu Spencer to hear his views on prospects in the coming election. He told me I’m not a lame duck & the 3 important things we must do in these 3 yrs. are tax reform, deal with the deficit & make progress toward peace.
A swearing in ceremony for Dick Lyng—new Sec. of Agri. Jim Baker & assistant came by to explain what Sen. Packwood has accomplished on tax reform—sounds good.
Met with Sen. Evans on Nicaragua—I think I moved him somewhat.
Then up to our 3rd floor with Ed Meese, Mary Jane Wick, Mike Deaver & Nancy to look at 3 models for possible Presidential Library. We all agreed on the same one. Another pre-dinner speech to a high power group doing a salute to Congressional leadership—particularly Bob Dole. It was a most successful fund raiser. On way to W.H. learned from Don Regan—2 astronaut bodies have been found in wreckage of the Challenger off Fla. Keeping it hush hush until can report fully to families.
