Don Regan came by—he believes the economy is in a lull & the Fed. holds the key. The Fed has pulled the string on money supply & it’s down to 1⁄2 the rate of growth in the ec. Don is trying to goose Paul V. into a little action before he brings on more than a lull.

To the India embassy to express condolences on the death of P.M. Indira Ghandi. Then over to Reagan-Bush H.Q. for a tour & to thank the volunteers. They were an inspiration—an attractive gang of mainly young people—heart & soul into the campaign. Back at the Rose Garden the 10 surviving Cong. Medal of Honor—(Hispanic Am.) medalists on hand for a ceremony unveiling the very beautiful stamp commemorating the heroism of Hispanics. A routine session with John H. approving appointments. A meeting with Geo. S. & Bud—subject negotiations, whether arms or Latin Am. & what our overall policy should be. I declared that no more agreements just to get an agreement. They would have to accomplish our goal. In the oval office I video-taped the half hour speech to be played on election eve. It went well. Then I taped the Sat. radio speech cause we’ll be on the campaign trail. A haircut—a pile of paperwork & home & mother. The elec. polls are holding up but I’m still edgy—what happens if our people look at the polls & decide their vote isn’t necessary?
