Staff meeting—a problem with our nominee Judge Ginsburg. Some one opposing him has revealed that in his younger days he smoked pot on several occasions. It was a brief thing back when a lot of people experimented a bit and that’s all it amounted to. I think the fellow who leaked it was a friend at the time who smoked it with him. I dont see any reason why I should withdraw his name. Then there was more on the deficit. Frankly I think the Demos. want a recession for the ’88 Campaign.

N.A.T.O. Sec. Gen. Lord Carrington in for a brief meeting. He’s most supportive of our getting the I.N.F. treaty signed.
