Things continue to look better in the middle East. Met with Israeli opposition leader Shimon Peres of the labor party. He’s quite a contrast to Begin and believes once P.L.O. leaves Beirut Israel should leave Lebanon. Believes also we must resolve the Palestinian problem. Surprisingly he wants us to continue befriending the Arabs & wants Jordan brought into the peace process. Most of day spent in meetings with Congressmen (& ladies) re the tax bill. We’re up against a strange mix—it isn’t going to be easy. Sen. Bill Roth came in—unlike Jack K. he’s all for us and wants to help. Met with Chryslers Lee Iococca. He’s all for our program & wants to help. He has reduced Chryslers cost of production 50%. No wonder they show a profit. Rcv’d. letter from Richard Viguerie with copy of Conservative Digest. He tried to write in sorrow not anger about my betrayal of the conservative cause. He used crocodile tears for ink.
