Staff meeting—subject budget & Dem. determination to cut defense. I’ve proposed that we submit supplementals but make each one a particular weapons system. See if Demos can afford to oppose specific weapon systems.
N.S.C.—Discussion of Ross Perot who wants a meeting with me. I said OK but he has become a loose cannon on the P.O.W. matter. I have chosen Gen. Vessey to be our sole negotiator with Hanoi.
Rose Garden became E.O.B.—rain. A signing ceremony for Asian Pacific Am. Heritage Week proclamation.
An issues briefing lunch then a Domestic Policy Council meeting. Subject was AIDS. I’ve ruled that we appoint a commission to see if various groups dealing with AIDS—Nat. Health, Ed. etc can help find a way to combine our efforts.
A meeting with departing White House Fellows. A haircut & upstairs. A call from Dr. Hutton—Casey is still in intensive care & is in & out of comas. It sounds last stage.
Quiet evening at home.
