View the President's Schedule

Met briefly with Ambas. Stoessel who is back from a quick visit to 9 of our allies in Europe—1 day to each Capitol. Mission was to discuss Soviet violations of Human Rights. He met with solid agreement and a desire to keep in close consultation on the subject. Off to Fla. to address Nat. convention of the I.L.A.—International Longshoremens Assn. Teddy Gleason their Pres. is a staunch supporter. I am 1st Pres. to ever address them. I was warmly received—spoke to them re Central Am. Before coming back met with about 35 Jewish leaders. I think we’re on track even though many of them are Dems. Back to W.H. Maureen is here—had daughter of a friend who is an intern over to visit W.H. Started making phone calls re the MX vote. Announced today in Fla. that Henry K. will be chairman of the Commission on Central Am. One of press yelled a Q. at me that Sen. Dodd says commission is a ploy to get around Cong. I wonder really which side Dodd is on. He comes down against the U.S. on almost every issue.
