View the President's Schedule

After the usual meetings I went over to the E.O.B. & addressed the Am. Retail Fed. This group is a good supporter of our program & policies. I pushed tax reform this A.M.

Lunch in my new patio and then some desk work plus a drop by—Bill Casey on the problem of leaks. Then Jerry Carmen with his resignation as our U.N. Ambas. in Geneva. He’ll be back with us in another job I think. He’s done a great job in everything we’ve asked him to do.

A photo with the Speechwriters & staff. They’re a great bunch. Ben Elliott—head man is leaving. We’re thinking of giving the job to Jim Brady whose Dr. says it would be good for him to have more to do. After Personnelle time we had admin. time. I presented a medal to Paul Miller who after 45 yrs. is retiring. He has staged all the mil. formations for state visitors etc. Among the other visitors was Coach Eddie Robinson of Grambling—longest & winningest coach in F.B. history. A promotion to Lt. Col. & a goodbye to Maj. Ivany who leaves as W.H. aide to take command of an armored cavalry regiment in Texas.

Then a lengthy taping session & upstairs. Two phone calls—one to the Queen of Eng. who is visiting her racing stable in Ky. And the other to an 11 yr. old Vietnamese girl who won her states (Hawaii) contest for best essay on “What the Statue of Liberty means to me.”
