View the President's Schedule

Meeting with Exec. Comm. National Govs. Assn. They are a little concerned about our future budget cuts but I believe we eased them somewhat. Saw 3 Ambassadors off to Brazil, Saudi Arabia & Algiers. Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia came in with Sen. Baker. Sen. Glenn is influencing many Sens. against the A.W.A.C.S. deal on proposition that we should have joint crew operation if they are sold. This may be our chance. Prince Bandar believes Crown Prince Fahd may agree to this. We in return would give them the enhanced planes with the top level equipment. Tonight I did the speech live. Everyone seems to think it went well—I hope so.
