JUDGE CALLS FOR REAGAN DIARIES

A judge today ordered former President Ronald W. Reagan to turn over excerpts of his personal diaries to former national security adviser John M. Poindexter for use in his Iran-contra case.

U.S. District Judge Harold Greene ordered Reagan to produce the material by Monday. He gave the former president nearly a week to produce the entries in case Reagan decides to assert the doctrine of executive privilege in an attempt to avoid surrendering the diaries.

The judge said Poindexter is entitled to diary entries in 1985 and 1986 in which Reagan describes an effort to persuade the government of Honduras to release a seized arms shipment that had been destined for the Nicaraguan contra rebels.
