K:
Hello.
F:
Hello,
Henry,
'
K:
How
are
you?
Pete,I
wastalking
with
the
President.
You
are
looking
for
people
for
Japan
for
me.
F:
That's
correct.K:
And
you
mentioned
the
former
head
of
Sears?
Who
are
you
talking
about?
F:
The
former
head
is
a
fellow
by
the
name
of
Gordon
Metcalg.
A
very
ableguy.
Wethought
that
William--and
his
nickname
is
Mill
Batten,
who
the
President
knows,
is
better.
K:
OK.
F:
He
is
a
former
head
of
JC
Penney.
You
want
to
hear
the
rest
of
the
list?K:
And
can
you
get
it
over
to
Eagleburgerso
that
he
can
LDX
it
out
here?
F:
Sure,
it
has
already
gone
to
Eagleburger.
Now,
Howard
Clark,
of
Amer.
Express---he's
supposed
to
retire
in
a
few
years.
Several
ofthese
men
might
be
on
the
edge
of
retirement
so
theymight
be
available.
K:
Good.
F:
Well,
I'
ll
read
them
to
you
quickly.
In
order
of
ability
and
the
fact
that
they
are
close
to
retirement.
Mill
Batten,
of
JC
Penney.
A
fellow
by
the
name,
of
Bob
Vllman
of
National
Cash
Register,
Gordon
Metcalfof
Sears,
a
wonderful
fellow,
Jim
Binger
of
Honeywell,
he
s
only
57.
I
doubt
that
he
would
be
available.
Bill
Hewitt
ofDear
h
Co.
andHowaad
Clark.
But
the
first
three
would
bemy
recommendations.
K:
OK.
Good.
F:
Good,
Henry.
K:
Now,
Firestone
won't
take
Canada.

K:
And
the
President
asked
me
just
to
call
me
to
ask
if
youhave
a
deserving
non-contributing
supporter
but
I
hope
you
will
say
no.
F:
I
don'
t.
Let'
me
ask
you
a
question,
though.
Bill
Porter
is
a
very
ablediplomat
and
certainly
knows
his
business.
I
have
felt
that
we
have
missed
the
boat
in
Canada
because
wehad
that
fellow
you
had
been
withthe
bank,
whose
name
I
forget
and
then
we
had
Adolph
Schmit,
and
this
is
ayoung,
energetic
nation.
And
it's
a
young,
energetic
government--Trudeau
is
young,
John
Turner
is
young--relatively
young,and
their
sort
of
feisty
in
some
ways.
Certainly
Turner
is.
Bill
Porter,
while
he
can
be
feisty,
seems
to
me
less
sort
of
tough.
Maybe
I'm
reading
him
'wrong.
I
don
t
know
him
allthat
well.
We
really
need
to
get
close
to
those
people
and
we
certainly
haven't
with
out
last
two
appointments.
K:
Well,
whom
do
we
have
to
be
realistic.
Porter
is
tough,
all
right.
He
is
not
the
most
sociable
guy
in
the
world.
But
he
is
tough.
F:
But
is
he
a
bit
priests?
K:
Prissy?
Ng.
I
feel
it
biggest
drawback
is
that
he
tends
to
get
abrasive.
F:
That
doesn't
bother
me
a
bit
up
there.K:
No,
prissy
isn't
his
problem.
F:
Well,
then
I
can't
think
of
.
an
alternative.
K:
OK,
because
it
would
help
me
if
when
I'm
moving
him
it
doesn't
iafcez
look
as
if
I'm
throwing
him
in
the
ash
can.
F:
Sure.
No,
I
think
he
is
an
improvement
on
what
we'
vegot
up
there,
I
hopeyou
are
not
thinking
of
Schmit
for
the
OECD
and
I
don't
see
whywe
owe
Adolph
Schmit
anything.
K:
Well
the
White
Hous
is
pushing
like
crazyfor
him
and
I
ran
it
past
the
President
on
that
basis
and
he
is
willing
to
do
it,
but
I
don't
have
any
interest
in
Adolph
Schmidt.
F:
The
White
House
is
pushing
like
crazy
for
him?
I
wonger
who
that
can
be.
I'
ve
been
talking
with
Jerry
Jones
andhe
denied
it.
He
said
you
were.
K:
Look,
I'd
be
delighted
toput
a
hold
on
Schmidt.
Who
do
youwant?
F:
I'
ll
find
you
some
good
people.
I
don't
think
he
is
goodenough.
K:
Look,
I
have
no
interest
in
Schmidt.
F:
OK,
I'
ll
go
to
Jones
and
come
back
to
youwith
3
or
4
good
people.
