MACLAURY  December 19, 1969  At 4:45 PM, Dr. Wegner, of HEW, called and said when the dministration testified on the Hill Burton program, Secy. Kennedy wrote a letter dealing with the Administration's fiscal policy concerning interest subsidies and why the program, as the Democrats had written it, was undes irable from the interest subsidy aspect. He said Mr. Volcker was up there when HEW testified, and Mr. Volcker asked to be kept informed. Dr. Wegner was calling to let Mr. Volcker know that the Hill Burton markup is starting tomorrow morning at 10:00 AM and he said they (I assume he meant the Republicans) expressed some interest in the Administration sending some people up to help fight it off. He said it was being considered by the Labor and Public Welfare Commitee in the Senate and they have been meeting in S. 207 in the Senate and he assumes that is where they will meet tomorrow morning. He said HEW has done all it can and they do not feel they can do any more and they are very much afraid the Administration will lose. He said if the Treasury can send up some forces to help fight this off, it will be all to the good. I asked how one gets into such a session if one is not invited. He said it is closed and one does not get in -you just loiter in the hall and do lobbying. I asked him for his number so that you could call him. He said it was code 13 - 36311 but that he was leaving almost immediately. However, if anyone at Treasury wishes to talk to anyone at HEW, John Moscato knows the program better ahan anyone else and will probably be aroudd for the marking up session tomorrow. He can be reached on Code 14 - 62364. He said their legislative man is Sid Sapperstein, who is on 13 - 33685. He said if anyone at Treasury calls either of these men to say that he (Dr. Wegner) had suggested that we call how.   http://fraser.stlouisfed.org/ Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  Messages for Mr. Volcker  - 1 -  9:05 AM - Mr. Dale called.

Mr. Stith said this is done all  the time -- speaking on the record with no text. Another possibility they thought of was for you to beg off speaking at all or beg off and send someone else (MacLaury?)

Mr. Stith talked to Mr. Donnelley and he agrees with  the British that it would be better not to put anything out, especially since the Secy. and you and Mr. Petty will be having a lot of bilaterals during Bank-Fund week and before and after and, if we put out a statement about one, then it seems as thought we should not slight the others.

In past years,  we've used Wed. and Thurs. mornings for the most part for bilaterals for the incumbent of your office and this was what I was counting on this year.  Mr. Widman has already offered  Carli 9:30 AM on Thursday for a session on the Eximbank problems but there is nothing else yet even tentatively on Thursday morning.  The Fund Board is tentatively scheduled to start  meeting at 9:30.  I asked Mr. Widman's secy. to alert him to  the Thurs. Cabinet mtg., etc., and talked to Hal Reynolds, who is in charge here in Treasury of Bank-Fund arrangements, and he confirmed my understanding about the lesser importance of the Wed. and Thurs, sessions and also confirmed that, while we try to have a Temporary Alternate Governor in the US Gov's chair, it often works out that only a Technical Advisor is in the chair but we always keep someone there to alert us in case something important develops.  Therefore, I really don't think you  will  have to worry about covering the Thursday morning session for the Secy. -- I suspect this was Mary's idea.

Saunders said he would be in NYC on Tuesday and Friday of next week on personal business.  NOTE:   http://fraser.stlouisfed.org/ Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  It occurred to me that your secure phone is likely to be used for the most part by groups and, if the phone is located on the table behind your desk, as Mt. Patterson had thought of doing, it will not be a good location in terms of you when youtre overseas.  6 or 8 people clustering around it to talk to And it also seems likely that if you are using  the phone when you are here, it will probably tx be in a crisis situation and you'll probably want some of the others participating in the call. The secure phone must be located at least  3 feet away from any regular  phone or the apparatus won't work properly.  It seems to me that the logical  location is on the coffee table in front of the fireplace, which is more than  3 feet from the coffee table in front of the couch. If the secure  phone were in front of the fireplace, you would, of course, have to walk there from your desk to take a call.  I talked to Mr. Patterson about this  and asked him if it would be possible to have two instruments; he said that would not be possible but it would be possible to locate the secure phone in front of the fireplace, if that is where you would talk like to have it.

If you have occasion to say anything along this line to anyone, Mr. joss asked that we please let him or Mr. Webster know -- so that they will have something to pass along to Mr. Whittaker.  Mr. joss said the White House  didn't want this passed around in writing for obvious reasons. NOTE:  Mr. Galbraith said it would be more convenient for him to see you in NY on Friday afternoon, so long as you were coming up anyway.  He has kept  Friday afternoon clear, since he was czmixagtmx planning to come to Washington, so can be flexible about time.

I've put you down  to lunch with him at 1:00 PM that day at the Metropolitan Club.

Kennedy mit had asked you to be available in case anything came up to prevent him attending. Dr. Burgess came on the line and talked to me himself; I apologized for your not being able to return his call and he said that was all right, he hoped you could attend the whole Atlantic Council meeting with the Secy. He said it would be a at which Stans will speak lunch/and all afternoon session.

NOTE:  We had told State you and Mrs. Volcker would attend the ceremonial NATO session from 2:15 to about 3:30 on Thursday, Apr. 10.  State wants us to  send a messenger to pick up the special seat tickets.  Before doing so, we  need to tell them Mrs. Volcker won't be here and I thought I'd better check to see if you think you'll be able to attend -- since the B/P will be discussed at the Consultation session at 2:30 on Thursday and you may want to chair. If you're not going to attend the NATO ceremony, we really ought to let them know a little in advance, as they're probably having their share of problems on seating protocol.   http://fraser.stlouisfed.org/ Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  NOTE:  April 7, 1969  - 1 -  Messages for Mr. Volcker  I talked to Wm.

Don Smith, who handles Japan, said, when I informed  him of the call, that he had had lunch with the Japanese today and knew Mural was coming but no one seemed to know what he wanted to discuss. NOTE:  Mr. Walker's secy. said he suggested that Mr. Eggers attend the NSC meeting on Wednesday.  Mr. Walker apparently cannot cancel his trip out of town.  Do you think this is all right?  I asked Rose if she knew whether  =AIX  more than one person was permitted from a Department at NSC meetings, and she said she had never known of more than one attending.

Mrs. Allin thought you might want to have some kind of report on what goes on in the meeting -- that you might want to attend yourself, or have Mr. MacLaury attend.  The two gentlemen from the White House  are Larry Dunn and Bill Casselman of Harry Fleming's office. (W. Fleming is Personnel Adviser to the President.)  They will try to  convey what the President wants to do as regards hiring and firing. They realize -- at this point -- that Secretary Kennedy's involvement is pretty low and that the personnel matters are now up to the decisions of the Assistant Secretaries and are coming at the President's request to discuss personnel matters with them.  (They, with others,  had a similar meeting with every Cabinet member at the White House.) She repeated that you probably would want to know what transpires; since there were a "Whole bunch" under your jurisdiction.  The meeting  will be in Roam 3400 -- Don Webster's office-conference room -- at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, April  9.

There are two rooms cbn the  center corridor of this floor, diagonally across from whew Mr. Willis' office is located, that are vacant, though they are presently being used as a storage place for furniture. tm  Mr. Betts said Mr. Jurich could use Mr. Weiss' office  to start with and he has lined up Miss Brigita Cuberkis, who formerly worked for Mr. Weiss, to assist Mr. Jurich.
