Prime rate dropped from 9 to 8 1⁄2 & the Yen is the highest with regard to $ it’s ever been 171 & a fraction. An interview with 4 Wire service operators. Most Q’s were on Libya plus how it tied in to the coming summit. I managed to get some things said I’ve wanted to say—i.e. where does Khadafy get over moaning about our bombs killing a little girl? What about the baby blown through the side of a TWA plane at 15,000 feet. What about the 11 yr. old girl mowed down in cold blood at the Rome airport. Mr. K. called that one a “noble deed.”

The usual Mon. issues lunch. Up on the hill they’re putting together a spending bill I’ll have to veto.

A briefing by 4 Agri. experts—3 from U. of Chi. on world agri. and what do we say about it at the summit. The simple truth is the whole world is subsidizing farming & farmers are overproducing.

Met Nancy at East Room for a photo—cover of T.V. Guide. Then a lengthy taping session—50 min’s. Upstairs to gym, dinner & that’s all.
