View the President's Schedule

Day started out a dismal, depressive gray but ended up with a blue sky & the sun we haven’t seen for too long a time.

Staff time was short with no issues to speak of. N.S.C. brought up some strategy problems for Contra aid etc. Later in the morning Howard, Dave A bshire & our new legal counsel Culvahouse came in for a brief session on the upcoming press conf. Also they need to see my diary so they glean any further notes on Iran problem. Otherwise the special prosecutor & or the Sen. committee might raise a fuss & demand to see it themselves.

Issues briefing lunch—no great problems & all in all a pleasant time. Our new Cab. Secretary Nancy Risque has taken over very well. More desk time.

3 P.M. Howard, Dave, Culvahouse in for a session on upcoming press conf. We’re all convinced it will mainly be about Iran. Then Jim Baker re the Aug. end of term for Volcker as Chmn. for the Fed. Reserve Board. We’re going to see if Alan Greenspan will take the job & if Paul will step down gracefully.

Then it was Cong. photo time. One brought in Miss Teenager (John Chaffee of Rhode Island) Howell Heflin with young business man of the year from Alabama. There were several more & then it was home & mother.
