Prince Bandar (Saudi Arabia) came by with message from the King re the Syrian situation. They are most anxious that we do something to rid the Middle East of the Soviet influence. Bandar believes Syria would like to trade the Soviets for U.S. help & influence. Met with Repub. plus 1 Dem. Bud Roemer re El Salvador. Many of the group had just come back from there. Not all had been on our side before they went—they are now. The stories they told all added up to the fact that El Salvador is only the current battlefield. What is going on is a general revolution aimed at all of Central Am. & yes Mexico. Lunch with another 100 or so former campaigners & leaders. They are all gung ho. I did some Q&A. Interview with Mr. Forbes & some of his magazine staff. They too are supportive. It was a good session. Spent afternoon up in study catching up on homework. Tonite we ran a movie. Almost forgot—phoned our 5 astronauts in Calif. who brought the Space Shuttle Challenger in to Edwards A.F. base—(weather cancelled Fla. landing) for the most successful Shuttle flight so far.
