Arrival ceremony for Pres. de la Madrid. Weather turned out near perfect. He was visibly impressed. After reception he & I talked for nearly an hour on Central Am. I think our end goals are the same but they have trouble seeing Castro & the Sandinistas as we see them. I think I made a dent. [. . .] Then I went to Dan Ruge’s office for an electrocardiogram. It’s part of my annual physical. I didn’t bother to ask him about it so I guess it’s alright. Cab. Council meeting on family affairs. Margaret Heckler opened meeting with prayer. We are doing a lot of study on how we can help strengthen the family. Some ideas require legislation some things H.H.S. can do by regulation. One important thing is to re-establish adoption instead of abortion for the literally mil’s. of people who are waiting for a chance to adopt. Spent most of afternoon meeting with Congress men & women on the MX situation. Tip O’Neill has mounted an all out campaign to kill the MX. The State dinner was a huge success. Gloria Loring entertained beautifully. A lot of old friends on hand plus NBC’s Mr. Brokaw who recently dinged me good in an interview. He has voiced regret over that.
