View the President's Schedule

Prince Bandar reported in with message from King Fahd of Saudi Arabia. He has done a great job in helping bring about the Lebanon cease fire. He is about to be the Saudi Ambassador to the U.S. P.M. Margaret Thatcher arrived. She & I had an hours talk before lunch mainly about the Soviets & what it would take to get back into some kind of relationship. Then we continued on a number of subjects at lunch. I dont think U.S.-U.K. relations have ever been better. After she departed we had a Nat. Security Planning Group meeting re the START talks. We agreed on some strategy as Gen. Rowny prepares to leave for Geneva. In the Rose Garden for a ceremony involving our Olympic Hockey team & the Pro team of Wash.—The Capitals. They had a plastic square of imitation ice—a goal & a goalie. They asked me to hit a puck & believe it or not I scored a goal. Bill & Jean Thompson of Dixon came by. They are really the sparkplugs behind the renovation of my boyhood home. Betty Ann Wms. new President of the Wash. Press Club—for a picture. Then some young people who won medals in Ballet in Bulgaria. Last item Willa Shalit did a face mask of me. It took about 7 min’s & was painless. The Sen. passed the bill allowing the Marines to stay in Lebanon for 18 mo’s.
