At 11 A.M. went down to the East room & spoke briefly to the Foundation board of Gov’s. Then at 2 P.M. Trent Lott came by to see me. He was one of the leaders (Repub. Whip) who surprised & disappointed me when he scuttled—or helped scuttle the Tax reform bill. As it turns out he’d like to be helpful but doesn’t think we could get the help in the Senate to improve the Ways & Means bill. He says Chmn. Packwood (Sen. Committee) has told him he wont or cant make the changes. Trent suggests we let the bill hang & create a bi-partisan task force to work something out.

At 3:30 downstairs to welcome Exec. personnelle on the W.H. Xmas visit. Then at 4:45 off to Nat. museum bldg. for annual Xmas program broadcast nationally by NBC.
