View the President's Schedule

Brkfst. on A.F.1—headed for New Orleans. Had teleprompter problems that almost threw me for about 7 min. in front of several thousand Police Chiefs and Sheriffs (International meeting). Finally got going. Rcv’d a tremendous reception. Later a Repub. fund raiser—noon time $1000 per head. I remember going to La. in ’63 to campaign for Charlton Lyons who ran for Gov. only to establish a 2 party system in that state. Well it’s 2 party now with a Repub. Gov. & a few Congressmen. Back to Wash. and what I’ve been told may be the most momentous decision any Pres. has had to make (that’s hard for me to believe as I review our history). It was to OK the strategic missile & bomber buildup for our future defense needs. One hundred MX missiles & 100 B-1 bombers (to start with). Word from Calif. that we may have sold our house at last.
