Briefings for the Press Conference and for a change a lot of time to think about it. Kathy arrived to be Sec. now that Helene is moving over to Pen James dept. Press Conf. in East Room went well & was well received. Questions were pretty much on the Ec. program which finally went into effect on this 1st day of the fiscal year. Spent most of afternoon with one on one meetings on A.W.A.C.S. Sens. Nunn, Byrd (Robt.) & Byrd (Harry), Exon, Quale [Quayle] & our friend from N.H., Sen. G. Humphrey. All were doubtful—2 leaning against, 4 leaning for. I cant help but believe we have a good chance of getting most of them. I’m asking for a meeting with the whole Repub. group. Having a little trouble convincing our gang it must be done.
