They have had participation by Secy, Rogers, Mr. Shultz, Mr. Kissinger, Secy. Stans, and Dr, Walker -- people of that caliber. They give a dinner once a week to which they invite 10 to 12 prominent leaders of industry and other areas in as guests from all over the country -- usually 8 business leaders, a couple of college presidents, and a labor representative or two.  They  line up three Administration participants for each dinner, one who will drop in during the cocktail hour and, toward the end of the cocktail hour, make a few remarks to drive home any points that may seem appropriate at the time, one who will serve as host at the dinner, and the third to engage in discussion, along with the host, at the dinner,  The host leads off the discussion at  dinner and they have a free and frank discussion, which could cover anything the guests want to talk about, or the Administration participants, but Mr. O'Donnell said they have limited it to international and domestic economic matters.  e.g., Mr. Shultz  has handled the domestic and Mr. Kissinger the international at the dinners they have attended, and it has worked very well.

The cost is approximately $1,000 per flying hour  with a $2,000 minimum per day.  e.g., if it takes 7 hours  to fly to Europe, that woubcost $7,000; if you stayed in Europe for 3 days, it would cost an additional $6,000, plus another $7,000 to return to Washington, or a total of $21,000.  If, while in Europe, you flew somewhere that  took only 2 hours flying time that day, the cost for that day would still be $2,000, but if it took 3 hours flying time, the cost for that day would be $3,000.
