Diary Entry - 10/09/1985

Wednesday, October 9, 1985

George B. & I had a photo taken by Tames (N.Y. Times). He is retiring & doing a book. The book will begin with a photo of Truman & F.D.R. at a table near the Rose Garden. George & I were put at the same table in the same positions & our photo will close the book.

I later spoke to the meeting of the Nat. Security Telecommunications Advisory Commission. And then over to Va. to do a fundraiser for Wyatt Durette, cand. for Gov.

Geo. S. & Bud & I lunched on the patio & spent our time talking about the Geneva summit.

Word came that the Italian Liner had returned to Port Said—the hijackers were taken by the Egyptians who turned them over to the P.L.O. who took them out of Egypt. They were only 4 in number but then we learned they had killed an American—a 69 yr. old man in a wheel chair. So we never had a chance to launch our rescue attack. The hostages minus 1 are on their way home.

The Senate passed the Gramm, Rudman deficit plan 75 to 24—now it’s up to the House. The Sen. also passed a temporary debt ceiling increase. If the House doesn’t pass it before midnight we are out of money.
