View the President's Schedule

A rather busy day. Nancy off to see the land proposed for Presidential Library. I stayed behind & met with George Scharfenberger & Mort Janklow re a book I should write after I leave the W.H. I agreed.

Then after lunch a meeting here with George Shultz, Howard B., F. Carlucci, Marlin F., Elliot Abrams, & Jose Sorzano. This was preparatory to our meeting down stairs with the Nicaraguan Resistance leaders. They went down ahead of me & I went down a half hour later. The leaders were Col. Enrique Bermudez, Adolfo Calero, Pedro Joaquin Chamorro, Azucena Ferrey Echeverry, Alfonso Robelo Callejas, & Aristides Sanchez Herodicia. A good meeting—preparing them to meet & be careful of Speaker Jim Wright. After meeting went up to the Suite with George S., Howard B. & Frank C. A good discussion of arms negotiations, Central America—agreed that Elliot A.’s man Busby should go there as a regional Ambas. Also some planning about Middle East.

At last my session with Dr. Bookman—a re-test on my allergys. I still have some.

Tonite over to dinner with Lew & Edie Wasserman—just the 4 of us. During the afternoon rcv’d. word of an attempted mil. coup in the Philippines. Apparently some disgruntled military. It was put down very quickly.

It was again a pleasant evening. They have one room that is literally a motion picture museum. Hundreds of books on theatre & movies, a nickelodeon, old hand cranked camera—1904 etc.
