View the President's Schedule

Brkfst. in bed at 7:45 A.M. Then up for a brief staff meeting—learned of coup in Haiti—Pres. Manigat thrown out by Gen. Namphy. Then at 9:50 over to M.T.C.C.—part of L. hotel. Summit heads only for 15 min’s. then a 2 hr. plenary meeting with Finance & Foreign ministers. This became a working lunch. An additional meeting & then back to Royal York for a meeting with P.M. Takeshita of Japan & several Diet members. He & I signed before an audience & press our Science & Technology Agreement. Upstairs—Nancy on way to another dinner. I showered & was off to Hart House at U. of Toronto for customary photo & an informal heads only meeting.

It worked just fine & our meetings before dinner & at dinner turned out to be the most fruitful of all. I came up with an idea about subsidys & the farm problem I’d never thought of before. How about subsidizing farmers to give up farming?? Got back to the Hotel before Nancy.
