N.S.C. meeting—Bill C. back from quick secret trip to Venezuela & Brazil. We had a plan which required their cooperation to take Surinam back into the family of Am. States before it becomes a Cuban patsy. Venezuela couldn’t go along. Pres. of Brazil had an idea somewhat different than ours but I believe different. So operation “Guiminish” is born. We’ll know before the month is out whether it has succeeded. Met to receive MX plan from Comm. on Strategic Powers. I think it’s a good plan. Meeting with Nat. Fed. of Independent Unions—they are all for us. Sec. of Agri. Block reported in on trip to N. Africa & Middle East. A string of Cong. & Sens. for various group pics.—things like Arthritis fund etc. Over to the Corcoran gallery for Repub. Inner Circle—the fund raisers for the Sen. Committee. Last year there were 400 this year 1300 & really enthusiastic. Then on to the Holocaust meeting—some 16,000 people—they had to turn 10,000 more away—no room. Practically all these people—all but their children are survivors of the Nazi death camps. It was an emotional experience for them & for us. I know I choked up a couple of times while I was addressing them.—Back at the W.H. & have a call in to Mubarak who is in Pakistan—it’s about the Arafat-Hussein affair.
