View the President's Schedule

Staff time without the V.P. He’s in Iowa. Some talk about Bork & last nights broadcast featuring all the Dem. Cand’s. for Pres. There was a lot of Demagoguery.

N.S.C.—Some talk about continued Iran hearings. That continued in following meeting with Culvahouse. Top secret is call I got from Howard last night. He has learned North in his pvt. testimony said he had kept all news of diversion of Iran funds to Contras from me & no one else had told me. We have to hold that secret til hearings resume in a week or so.

At 10:45 a Cab. meeting—one subject our program I’ll launch tomorrow to promote an “Ec. Bill of Rights.” A short personnelle time with Bob Tuttle. Then lunch.

About 3 hours of desk time got a lot of picture signing out of the way. Then a meeting with Dick Wirthlin. Signs are encouraging. Incidentally unemployment went down last month. It’s an even 6%. Then I received a trophy as the “Vol. of the Year” because of my promotion of volunteerism. Then a meeting with John Kevin Hill—the 11 yr. old who piloted his plane across the U.S. Several other photos with departing appointees & Calif. visitors.

At 5:30 a reception in East Room for “Human Events” & Radio Am. No press so I did Q&A & loved every minute of it.
