Staff briefings—this time with Sec. Shultz on hand. Some discussion of S. Africa & the legislation some in Cong. are cooking up to have us take extreme actions like taking Am. investment out of S.A.—Sanctions etc. Of course then we’d have no contact or ability to help rid them of apartheid. Besides Am. investment is only 1% of S.A. investment.
At 11:15 went to the Air & Space museum to talk to 600 kids from all over the U.S. who are in the “Young Astronauts” program—totally funded by the pvt. sector. Back to the W.H. for lunch & then a meeting with 16 Repub. Reps. & 16 Dems. all supporters of Aid to the Contras—a good meeting & really bipartisan.
Then into the family theatre—more warm up for the press conf.
Press Conf. went fairly well although they kept insisting on asking Q’s about the SALT Treaty.
