View the President's Schedule

A beautiful day which was good because we had the mil. ceremony & a large crowd on the S. Lawn for the arrival of Pres. Sanguinetti of Uruguay. We had a good meeting. He’s working to get his country—so long under a mil. dictatorship—back into the world of democracy & free enterprise.

This afternoon we astonished the press with a news break of a perfectly kept secret. I took Chf. Justice Burger, Justice Rhenquist & Judge Scalia into the press room to announce Burgers resignation, Rehnquists nomination to succeed him & Scalias nomination to take Rhenquists place on the court.

A meeting with John P. & Don R. on my proposal for a proposed treaty with the Soviets to share the S.D.I. if & when it is a reality & to then do away with I.C.B.M.’s. John seems to want to sneak up on it in phases etc. I’m holding out for a simple plan—yes or no.

Tonite the State Dinner for our Uruguay friend—with music by Dave Brubeck. It was a great evening. I’m sure everyone enjoyed themselves & our honored guests left with a warm feeling of friendship with us gringos.
