We haven’t settled with Cong. yet on E.P.A. Poor Anne G. is really strung out. Now some zany on the hill is saying $50 mil. in the superfund is unaccounted for. P.M. Willoch of Norway arrived. He’s a fine man & a good friend of the U.S.A. We had a good meeting on a number of subjects. He’s worried that we should move to a lesser position in the I.N.F. talks before we begin to look inflexible. He has a “peace” mob in his country too. All in all though we were together on most things. The N.S.P.G. meeting was something. It was on El Salvadore & Central Am. We have been so restricted by Cong. in our help to the El S. govt. that they are losing to the Rebels. I finally told the Council to come up with how we could be of more help not whether we should. We (I learned) are tracking by radar the planes flying ammo & guns to the guerrillas but we’re forbidden to tell our friends so they can intercept them. That has to stop. Nancy’s on the way to Phoenix—I’ll be alone for a week. Tonite the annual Am. Conservative Union dinner. Evidently the Right Wing Rebels have had little effect. I was warmly received & my speech was a bell ringer.
