And so we did. There was one hitch—our helicopter had to land at Santa Barbara airport & motor to Pt. Mugu. Winds at the Point were gusting up to 70 miles per hour—more than a helicopter could handle. But A.F.1 got off alright & we reached the W.H. just 45 min. later than scheduled.

Mermie was here so it was dinner & an early night.

We did get bad news—Lt. Col. Higgens a U.S. member of the U.N. force in Lebanon has been kidnaped. It occurred in the vicinity of a Palestinian refugee camp. The Amal militia has surrounded that camp—beyond that we have no info.
