View the President's Schedule

A bad night—my hay fever. Nancy on her way to N.Y. until late tomorrow afternoon. I had a 9:30 meeting with the GOP leadership—both houses. We were talking a little strategy on the things on the legislative plate. I think they know now I’ll veto those wild hair things that have been coming out of the House. They also know I think the budget process is minor league. Then we had an N.S.C. briefing on tomorrows visit by Pres. Aquino of the Philippines. I cant wait to tell her what I know about communism & why she must take them on—not try to take them as allies.

After lunch I spoke to about 200 of our Hispanic citizens in the Rose Garden. It was a pleasant meeting. Then some campaign T.V. footage with 5 of our Sen. Cand’s.

Dick Wirthlin came by with the latest poll results—the figures are still good.

Jack Hume came by with a suggestion for someone to take Lew Lehrmans place as head of our Citizens org. His choice & now it’s mine is Jerry Carman.

A meeting with Cap W. & then an unscheduled visit by Geo. S. on the Daniloff case. He is going to notify the Soviets tonight that we know the evidence they claim to have & we wont buy it—Daniloff is not a spy. Then tomorrow we tell them we are shipping 25 KGB agents on their U.N. staff back to Russia.
