Reagan Begins Delayed Vacation

Associated Press

After lobbying down to the wire for his $100-million package of aid to Nicaraguan rebels, President Reagan left the White House this afternoon and flew west for a Senate campaign appearance in Las Vegas and a delayed vacation at his mountaintop ranch.

The House was debating the aid package as Reagan left and was headed for a final, close vote late this afternoon. Spokesman Larry Speakes said Reagan plans to spend five days doing paper work and chopping brush at Rancho del Cielo near Santa Barbara, returning to Washington on Monday as originally planned.
