View the President's Schedule

Opened day with N.S.C. meeting. Date for summit may cancel our Thanksgiving vacation according to one Soviet source who said they might propose the last week in Nov. Then we discussed some of the things Cong. is talking about are all kind of ridiculous legislation about arms treatys. They are actually sitting on the Soviet side of the negotiating table. We have to hold off on asking Cong. for the $270 mil. for the Contras. Fortunately they still have some arms in the pipeline. Later we can try for non-lethal aid. A Sandinista Major & his wife have defected. We’re holding it secret while they try to get their young son out of Managua.

Next meeting was a briefing on meetings with Cong. on deficit. All I can say is they are trying or talking about the right measures.

Then at 11:30 A.M. the World Champion Minn. Twins in the Rose Garden. The owner had them & the assembled familys & friends observe a moment of silence for Nancys mother. Then lunch & after lunch a photo with Camp Davids Exec. Officer who is being transferred.

Over to E.O.B. to address the small business reps who gave a report on small business.

Then Howard & Ed brought in Judge Ginsburg. We went over to the East Room—about 200 in attendance. There I revealed that the Judge was my nominee for Sup. Ct. It was well recvd. by all present. Then some desk time & finally Admin. time. I was 1st Pres. to ever be made an honorary member of the Telephone Pioneers. Next a photo of American winners of the Motocross motorcycle event—50 nations participate. Then S.S. brought in Painter of my pictures of the ranch & his son. Followed that with reception in the East Room for “Citizens for America.”

Upstairs exercise—phone call from Nancy & days end.
