Howard B. reported on Ross Perot who is evidently upset about something or other having to do with Vietnam & our P.O.W.s. He had told me his arrangement with Hanoi was that they had to write him that he could meet some of our P.O.W.s still being held captive if he’d go to Hanoi. Well no such message came. It was due Fri.
Colin took Franks place at the N.S.C. brief. Frank is in S. Am. Most of this meeting was taken up with report on Dean Martin Jr. He & his crew man it is known bailed out over San Gorgonia peaks but still no word of them. Weather has been interfering with the search. Nancy & I called his folks Dean & Jeanne—they of course are all torn up.
Late morning met with Wm. Webster. He requested that he not be made a Cab. Member as Dir. of C.I.A. I’d done that with Bill C. and found out he shouldn’t be in the cabinet so we had no problem with Bill W’s. request.
Issues lunch went well. Then a meeting with Bob & Eliz. Dole about the Highway bill which will hit my desk Wed. They think we may have enough votes in the Sen. to sustain my veto. A photo with 4 editors of Conservative Digest. Then an N.S.P.G. meeting on our Persian Gulf strategy. I made it plain that if Iran tried to close the Gulf—we’d reopen it. A meeting with Cap W. He’s putting together the Special Services Command the Cong. demanded. Then a haircut & upstairs—Mommies home.
