A call from R. Nixon. He’s going to the Soviet U.—a strictly pvt. meeting. Some of our people thought I should try to talk him out of it. I didn’t. Visit came out of a meeting with Dobrynin whom he’s known for 20 yrs. His only scheduled meeting is with Dobrynin. We both feel he’ll probably end up with others possibly including the Gen. Sec. Mr. G. I have great respect for his international talent & think he might come up with some help. An N.S.C. meeting—briefing for visit by P.M. of Pakistan. [. . .] I’m going to lean on him a bit. Under our law I have to certify every year to Cong. that they have no bomb or aid to Pakistan stops. After lunch I signed off on some appointments including Bob Brown as Ambas. to S. Africa. Then a drop by to the E.O.B. for a meeting of our Exec. Exchange Commission. This is our program where Pvt. exec’s. spend a year in a govt. job & govt. exec’s. take their place out in the pvt. sector.
A meeting with Sec. Shultz—mainly on the game playing going on about a summit. I think he’ll have a ministerial level meeting to work on this—but they are being coy. Then off to Camp D. where the temp. was about 25° below Wash.
