View the President's Schedule

Brkfst. with P.M. Begin & his team plus our own people. Plans were laid for future meetings & definite parameters to our dealings. He left me at 10 A.M. Dropped in on meeting of Ec. Advisors—A roomful of our country’s greatest economists. None of them could explain why interest rates are so high. In the afternoon to the Pentagon for opening & dedication of a “corridor” to General McArthur. Mrs. McArthur was there & it was very touching. She was deeply moved. Late afternoon—Lionel Hampton played for us in a tent on the S. Lawn—reception in W.H. followed. His performance & the galaxy of stars including Pearl Bailey were magnificent. Dinner delayed until about 9 P.M.—Phone calls etc. over needed additional budget cuts to meet our goal. Cap & Dave S. & I will meet at 10 A.M.
