When the Make-a-Wish Foundation, an organization that grants wishes for terminally ill children, asked cystic fibrosis sufferer Jeffrey Baird what he wanted the most in the world, the Van Nuys boy thought it over. He decided against trying a stint as a guest DJ or meeting his favorite rock group, Guns 'n' Roses. Instead, Jeffrey, 12, will leave Saturday for Washington, where he is to meet President George Bush on Monday. "I had a few choices, and I couldn't really decide," Jeffrey said.

For 12-year-old Jeffrey Baird of Van Nuys, meeting the President was not really his first choice. He wanted to be President. But that was not so easily arranged, so on Monday, the blond seventh-grader went to the Oval Office to shake hands with President Bush. "Until I actually met him, I couldn't quite grasp it," Jeffrey said. "Then, when I actually saw him, it dawned on me. This is the President of the United States, and a 12-year-old Valley boy is meeting him."

President George Bush may have his hands full when he meets Van Nuys resident Jeffrey Baird on Monday. Jeffrey wants to pin down the President about his plans now that Secretary of Defense nominee John Tower has been rejected; he wants to know what Bush really does all day in the White House, and he wants Bush to create another federal holiday: a day off for kids. Jeffrey is 12 years old, although his battle with cystic fibrosis has left him smaller than his 8-year-old brother.
