N.S.C. meeting was a movie. We saw a demonstration of our new Bomber one of the greatest advances in aircraft in years & years. It is of course most hush hush—I should call it what it is—a fighter bomber.

Geo. S. called from Moscow on scramble phone—6 more hours of talks—4 of them with Gorbachev. Apparently not much progress. Gorbachev is adamant we must cave in on S.D.I.—well this will be a case of an irresistible force meeting an unmovable object. Met with Edmund Morris who is going to do my official biography. I’m pleased—his book on Teddy Roosevelt was wonderful. Of course I cant charge up San Juan Hill. Had an Ec. briefing—our recovery is continuing—or by now I should say our expansion & growth is progressing at a slow but steady rate & on employment we’re doing extremely well. A higher percentage of the potential work force (all between 16 & 65) is employed than ever in our history.

Welcomed 8 new Ambas’s.—most with familys. Only one—from Grenada—the rest from African states including S. Africa. Upstairs—where I’m alone again. Nancy is getting an award in N.Y.
