A 10 A.M. day & a busy one. First meeting a kind of general discussion of the legislative situation & problems we can look forward to with necessary authorization & appropriation bills.
N.S.C.—Our young (18-19-20) crewmen of the C-5F’s that delivered our inspectors for treaty verification. Report is the Soviets were fascinated by them & were showing them every thing there was to see.
Morocco wants to buy F-16’s from us.
Jim Baker suggests banning import of tea & chocolate from Soviets on basis of workers being convicts in production of those items. We don't agree. First of all our importation is miniscule & 2nd we cant confirm whether products are made by convicts.
Desk time to get P.D.B. read & some desk items cleared up. At 11:45—did some audio taping for documentary film to be shown at Repub. Convention.
