Nancy off to Pittsburg early in the A.M. She’ll be back this afternoon. For me it’s a long & busy day ahead. Day started late for me—10:30 A.M.—meeting with Don R. & then with John P., Geo. S. had called from N.Y. to counsel with us about Daniloff. He has had (Geo. I mean) with Shevardnadze & the deal cooking is Daniloff free—Zakharov free in exchange for Orlov + others if possible. I think we’ll have to settle for Orlov but I recommended only if Orlov comes here as Z. leaves. The Soviets want Z. first & then Orlov about 15 days later. Of course we hold fast that the 25 KGB ’s leave the U.N. & go home.

After lunch I met briefly with Committee on Future of Western Community. This is a group of our people & rep’s. of Japan, France & several other European Co’s.—U.K. etc. The idea is a program including U. of S. Carolina to help spread democracy world wide—just as Communists are doing. Then I went to the Marriott Hotel to address the Nat. Fraternal Cong. on it’s 100th B.D. This is an org. of more than 100 fraternal like clubs organized to do charitable work. They gave away over $300 mil. last year.

Back to the W.H. I met with Geo. Will who has been attacking me as caving in on the Daniloff case. I asked him to come see me. I think I’ve straightened him out.

Then it was admin. time—Signed 1st pledge for Fed. Fund drive, met new Am. Legion Commander, New Postmaster Gen., Welcomed Jerry Carmen as new Pres. of Citizens for America, & saw off a few departing people—one of the Marine Guards etc. Then a very lengthy taping session. Day ended with Cong. passing tax reform bill 292 to 136. Cloud 9.
