More talk about SALT II & legislative strategy re the situation in Nicaragua. We carried the Sen. on a bill to provide $38 mil. in help to the Contras—non lethal. We headed off attempted amendments from our friends among others which would have endangered passage.
Called Don Devine who withdrew his name from the Sen. Confirmation process. This was another lynching. He did just what I wanted him to do in his appointed position & he’ll be greatly missed. He saved the govt. $6 Bil. Something his Senate critics have never done.
Geo. B. & I lunched on the patio. He’ll soon be off on a trip to our European allies to further strengthen the bonds. Last stop for the day was an appearance before about 100 Ec. editors from as many publications. I spoke briefly on the tax reform then took Questions.
Finally it was time for Camp David. Weather prediction was such that we called off the horses.
