This is or was an easy Monday. I think they are easing up because of the 3 days in N.Y. this week. Anyway I went from a brief session with Anne Armstrong about P.F.I.A.B.’s finding [. . .] (which we must do something about) to a brief meeting with Mr. Jerzy Milewski—Polish labor leader. He thanked me for the help the U.S. has been to Solidarity & the people of Poland. Then a brief speech at the E.O.B. to about 100 of our U.S. Attorneys—my appointees. Our issues briefing lunch was more or less routine. I had written a 4 page essay on my views of what our approach to the summit should be & read it to the group. Then an N.S.C. meeting on the coming U.N. anniversary in N.Y. It has been decided that I will not sit with the U.S. delegation at the 2 hr. ceremony. I will already have addressed the Gen. Assembly that morning. Our intelligence suggests several of us have probably been fingered for possible assassination attempts. Some 5000 U.N. badges have been given out & the U.N. refuses to magnetometer the attendees or look at briefcases etc. Security doesn’t feel I should attend & I’m not going to 2nd guess them.

Cong’man. Sonny Montgomery brought Miss America by—she’s a charming young lady. Then a photo with an interviewer from the “Times of India” & upstairs for the rest of the day.
