View the President's Schedule

1st order of business—I will go on T.V. at 8 P.M. tonite and reply to the ridiculous falsehoods the media has been spawning for the last 10 days. Had a photo taken with Richard P. Godwin—new fellow at Defense in charge of buying etc. He comes to us from Bechtel Corp. Usual lunch with V.P.—he had some disturbing news about Mexico Pres. de la Madrid. The Pres. is upset & thinks I’ve cooled off on him. I’ll have to get into this & see what has him upset.

Met with about 18 of our Ambas’s. brought back to have a conference on how they can help in the anti-drug crusade. They are all revved up. We cleared the afternoon schedule all the way to 4 P.M. so I could help with tonites speech.

At 4:30 a big admin list. The people from the Lung assn. with the annual Christmas seals. The W.H. Historical Assn. Photo with Epilepsy poster child—a pretty little girl. The Harper family—friends of my brother & so it went. Then at 5 P.M. spoke to Citizens for America in East Room & took Q’s. Then came 8 P.M. & I did a 12 min. T.V. speech on the Iran incident & gave the facts to refute the firestorm the press is raising based entirely on unsubstantiated rumors & out right inventions. Several thousand phone calls came in & about 2⁄3 were favorable.
