Wash. Post carried leaks on meetings we held in S.F. last Fri. Met with delegation of Mayors—didn’t complain too much but of course want more money. Young high school science winners came in—amazing but majority were Japanese Am. Another meeting was with leaders of groups & org’s. joined in a cause called “Peace Through Strength”—they are (I’m happy to say) a counter lobby to the Nuclear Freeze people. Late afternoon met with Repub. Sens. & Reps.—Only a few of leadership & mainly armed services committees. The closest we’ve been to a real split in the ranks. The issue—the defense budget. They want still more cuts. We’ve done our own cutting & are to rock bottom. They say our Repub. Sens. wont support present budget. I’m going to take our case to the people only this time we are declassifying some of our reports on the Soviets and can tell the people a few frightening facts. The d--n media has propagandized our people against our defense plans more than the Russians have. We are still angerously behind the Soviets & getting farther behind.
