A busy, crammed day but with it’s moments. Went to Justice dept. this morning for a memorial service for 13—S.S.—F.B.I.—U.S. Marshal Drug enforcers etc. who’ve been killed in the last few months. Their families were there. One 5 yr. old boy (son) gave me a homemade Easter card & then suddenly grabbed me around the neck in a big bear hug. I think he misses a father. Later at office a young widow (Secret Svc) & her 3 yr. old boy came to the Oval office. Her husband was killed in the car crash on the way to security duty for Queen E. at Yosemite. Meeting with Shamir (F.M. of Israel) & his party. I put in my pitch as best I could. George S. passed me a note telling me I’d been terrific. Finished afternoon meeting 150 local & st. govt. people in the East Room. Did Q&A. They seemed very friendly. There were other meetings which kept me busy. Did some phone calling to Senators on the jobs bill. Senator Kasten has hung an amendment on having to do with repealing withholding tax on Int. & Dividends. I’m trying to get it off—let it stand by itself—so we can get on with the jobs bill.
