View the President's Schedule

N.S.C. meeting on START negotiations. We’ve opened them up & given our negotiators more flexibility. We’re going to try & reduce warheads & missiles & throw weight. Our guest—the Pres. of Ivory Coast arrived. Pres & Mrs. Howphouet-Boigny. A nice little man who has been Pres. since 1960. He’s anti-communist—free enterprise & his people have the highest living standard in Africa. We had full ceremonial. In the afternoon 2 meetings—1 with House representatives & 1 with Sens. all on the START talks. I think we did a lot of good. Stu Spencer came by so did Max Fisher & 4 heads of Jewish groups they want to help us on every issue. Don Regan came in—just between us for now he wants to resign. His family is pressing for it & I know it’s concern for his health. He puts in a 60 or 70 hour week. I think we’ll re-appoint Paul Volcker for about a year & a half. He doesn’t want a full term. Tonite—State Dinner but before that—a short meeting with Alexandre de Marenches—one time head of French Intelligence. He travels extensively & had depressing news about a number of areas & Soviet subversion in them. He picks Iran as a real danger spot. The St. dinner went well—music by Chamber Music Society of Lincoln center.
