It was raining—Mommie left for Calif. (for 5 days) and it was Mon. Then at 10:15 I went to Const. Hall to address 2000 delegates of the U.S.C. of C. [United States Chamber of Commerce] convention. What a shot in the arm. They interrupted me a dozen times or more. I was talking about the budget & our tax program. The British formally announced the surrender of the Argentines on So. Georgia Island. The main fleet is on the way to the Falklands at flank speed. Britain sounds interested in our latest proposal. We’re waiting to see if Argentina will welcome Al H. for a discussion of the proposal. A Budget meeting—tomorrow the gang goes back at it with the Demos. tomorrow. I felt they were tiring a bit and the Demos are holding out for more concessions. The D’s are playing games—they want me to rescind the 3rd yr. of the tax cut—Not in a million years!
