Met briefly with a group of anti-abortion leaders. They recognize the effort I’ve made to end the Weicher-Packwood filibuster of the Helms amendment. Word came that a bldg. had been bombed in Beirut where Pres. elect Bashir Gemayel was speaking. Later word came he was alright. Much later word came he’d been killed. We’re not sure at this point what we should believe, but fear the worst. Met with Dole, Moynihan & Packwood about the Tuition Tax Credit bill. There’s a good chance it can come out of Sen. finance committee tomorrow. Might even get voted on by the Sen. Dr. Teller came in. He’s pushing an exciting idea that nuclear weapons can be used in connection with Lasers to be non destructive except as used to intercept & destroy enemy missiles far above the earth.

Met with Cong. Caucus on textiles & C.E.O.’s of large textile firms. They have a real concern re the import of textiles from China. We have to help them. Greeted new W.H.
