View the President's Schedule

A lot to talk about. Chf. Justice supports bill eliminating mandatory lie detector tests now before Cong. It’s suggested that I send letters to Dole & Byrd re protecting Presidential prerogatives on treatys. A great speech line from Ken Crib—“Liberals dont care what you do as long as it’s compulsory.”

N.S.C.—Nicaragua talks cancelled again. Sandinistas claim Contras made impossible demands. Both promise not to resume fighting. Contra leaders are coming to Wash. for consultations. There is talk of an arms sale—40 F 18’s to Kuwait?? [. . .] Some Arab states are helping P.L.O. in Israel.

Norm Dicks (Cong.) is threatening to bring legislation to face us to eliminate a lot of our nuc. subs.

Then it was a drop by (a briefing 1st) of “Self Help Leadership” in Roosevelt Rm. It was a group of people who had not only overcome their own problems—disability etc. but now are doing heroic work to help others.

Then at 11 another ec. planning session for Toronto summit.

And at noon went up to get Nancy & down to annual lunch in East Room to give 18 Vol. Action Awards. They surprised me with a medal for having started the whole volunteer movement.

Then up to get ready for Camp David. Weather beautiful. And it remained so at Camp D.—Ran “Crocodile II.”
