Howard still not here. Ken & I carried on without him. Ken tells me Tommy Griscom is leaving—possibly by end of month. He’s been offered a Vice Presidency in a business concern in Tenn. The Sen. will be voting on my trade bill veto tomorrow. I made phone calls to Mike Deaver & Bud McFarlanes wife Jonny to thank them for their letters on the Summit.
N.S.C.—Colin brought in an N.S.C. board member Ambas. Cohen to give me a run down on Mozambique & the Renamo. He’s really an expert & he convinced me we should not look kindly on Renamo. They are well organized & in some sectors are very kind to the people but in others they pillage & massacre. Afghanistan—have been rumors Soviets will halt their withdrawal in response to Mujahadeen activity. There is no evidence as yet to back the rumor.
In Managua the Contras & Sandinistas are resuming talks. Cong.man Mickey Edwards wants to talk to me—possibly tomorrow. I had desk time right through lunch & until 1:30 when we had a preparation meeting in Cab. room for Ec. Summit in Toronto—June 19, 20 & 21.
Then it was upstairs—exercise & get dressed again for 6 P.M. dinner then off to fund raiser for Trent Lott. That was a nice affair & he & Tricia are deserving of everything we can do for them. It was a combination affair of reception, receiving line & dinner. I spoke at all 3 & was home by 7:45 P.M.
