Things are looking better in Grenada. The moderates have at last come together which could close the door on the former P.M. who is trying again. The matter of Gromyko & whether I can meet with him is iffy—we’ve had no response to our suggestion that he visit Wash. after his U.N. speech.

Another day of desk time—vetoed a bill increasing by 38% the funding for public broadcasting. Sen. Barry G. had written asking that I sign. I called him—he was nice as could be & had no complaint because I vetoed.

Rcvd. 6 new Ambassadors—Senegal, W. Germany, Saint Lucia, Suriname, Nigeria & Morocco. Had a photo taken for Fortune mag. cover and then a reception for the campaign staff. Before that met with George S. & Bud where we hashed the Gromyko thing around some more.
