Day started with a lot of talk about 1st the army Lt.—son of Colin Powell in a jeep accident in W. Germany. It is estimated his recovery will take a year. Then the Budget & how we must org. a campaign—in the Admin. & in the public. Then the trade bill & possibly our R’s. will give it a quick passage. An energy bill passed by House. If it comes to me I’ll have to veto.
N.S.C.—Marcos is back on the agenda. We have info. that he’s plotting a return to the Philippines and a coup to recover control. We cant permit that.

We have learned Cubans are flying the gunship helicopters in Nicaragua.

Then N.S.P.G. meeting to explain to all the changes we’d made in N.S.C. and covert operations. A brief Personnelle meeting but prior to that a meeting with Dr. Mayberry who agreed to chair our commission on AIDS.
