Saw Phil Habib off to Central Am. 1st stop Pres. Duarte—El Salvador, then the other countries. Mission to try & persuade the Sandinistas in Nicaragua to negotiate with the Contras. Met with 4 Dem.

An interview with 4 journalists from the Baltimore Sun. Regular Wed. meeting with George S.—a number of items including Marcos. Last night Marcos called Paul Laxalt. He wants out of Honolulu and wants Mexico, Panama or Spain & Airforce transportation. We’re working on it & are trying Panama first.
