1st meeting on a hot morning—a little preparation for a 9:30 meeting with GOP leadership. Debt Ceiling will be an important item with what the Dems. are attempting to do to it. Then the same individuals are trying to make our catastrophic illness proposal into a budget busting expanded program which will actually impose costs on senior citizens. Two trade bills House & Senate—I’d have to veto either one. Now 9:30 & the meeting. With Jim Baker, Clay Yeuter, Sec. Bowen all pitching in we had a good presentation as to why we had to stick together & get concessions from the Dems. or I’d veto.

Desk time—well after a brief N.S.C. session—mainly on Kuwait. Our 1st flagged tankers with Navy support will lift anchor at 2 A.M. our time. I hope nothing happens to make the phone ring.

At 1:30 P.M. out in to the Rose Garden for a ceremony of awards in the “Take Pride In Am.” event. Clint Eastwood & Lou Gossett were participants. The Temp was 94° in the shade & no shade.

A lot of desk work & then a session with eye Dr. Lemp to see why my left contact lens is giving me trouble. It just needed some cleaning up.

Forgot—this morning had a meeting with Col. Oleg Antonvich Gordiyevskiy—the Soviet K.G.B. officer who defected to Eng. His wife & 2 little girls were left behind. We’ve been trying to get them out to join him.
