Like all Mondays—a busy day with my desk buried in paper. The usual staff & N.S.C. meetings then a signing ceremony for the 27th Law Day U.S.A. proclamation. A goodly crowd on hand. The Mayor of Berlin dropped by. He’s a personable young man and we had a nice visit. He presented me with a plate commemorating the 35th anniversary of the Berlin airlift. An issues lunch was followed by another Rose Garden ceremony. This time to recognize the Nat. teacher of the year. She’s an Eng. teacher from Kentucky with a nice husband and a beautiful little 5 yr. old girl. Forty of her students were also with her & it was easy to see they care for her a great deal. Brent Scowcroft came by to report on his trip to Russia. He believes the Soviet cold shoulder is due in part at least to their not wanting to help me get re-elected. Finished the day with a proclamation signing for Parkinsons Disease Awareness week. Then an informal get together with several of the W.H. press corps. Early dinner & a drop by at the 35th Anniversary Dinner of the Chowder & Marching Club at Ft. McNair officers club. Nixon & Ford were both on hand.
