View the President's Schedule

Well we finally came up with a letter to Gorbachev that I can sign. In fact it’s a good one & should open the door to some real arms negotiations if he is really interested. Sir Geoffrey Howe—Eng. Foreign Minister came by. He’s off to S. Africa to see Botha. We had a good talk & I suggested some points for his talk which he bought. After lunch a pleasant get together in the Rose Garden with the “Girls Nation”—these are high school girls—sponsored by the Am. Legion Auxiliary. Lorraine Wagner & her family came by. She goes back to 1943 when she was a teenage member of my fan club.

The press has taken a crack at Don Regan charging that he said Am. Women should be against S. African sanctions because it would cut off their diamond supply. We have a tape of the off the record backgrounder in which he was supposed to have said it & he said nothing of the kind. Cong.man George O’Brien (a good man) died today of Cancer. No Camp D. this week.
