One hostage home & lots of Berri talk about the rest going to the French embassy in Beirut or Damascus. No further word. Berri has said he has no control or influence on the 7 kidnap victims. Quadafi is talking to Iran & Syria about a joint terrorist war against us.

Over to E.O.B.—brief talk to assembled state legislators, mayors etc. on tax reform. I left & our people carried on Q&A with them.

Sen. Alan Dixon (Ill.) came in. He has a bill to grant a one time amnesty for tax delinquents to come in voluntarily, pay up their tax & 1⁄2 the interest—be forgiven any penaltys etc. Ill. did it & collected $150,000,000. Estimates are that would be $15 bil. or more at the Fed. level. The I.R.S. is opposed but I’m inclined to think it’s a good idea.

Readers Digest came in with a leather bound issue which carrys my article on voluntarism. Then Richard Petty winner of 200 stock car races came with his family & a replica of his race car which is now in the Smithsonian. He’s a big supporter. I hung a medal on Commander of Camp David who’s being re-assigned to Navy duty. Sorry to see him go. Camp David is much improved over what it was 2 yrs. ago.
