Staff time (short) had to do with plans for checking some Sen’s. about our choice for Supreme Court spot—Robt. Bork. V.P. then told of our Cuban defector Gen. del Pino’s report to him on the Cuba situation. He says 56,000 mil. people have deserted in the last 3 yrs. A brief time with N.S.C. prior to meeting with Cong. leadership—both houses & bi-partisan. This meeting had to do with Persian Gulf. Sam Nunn has made this his cause & is fighting us to make us delay & especially not go through with protecting Kuwait tankers. He’s as wrong as he can be. We’d lose any standing we have & appear spineless if we did as he proposes. I dont know whether we blunted the opposition or not. After meeting Culvahouse & Howard came in—there are rumors that Ollie North—tomorrow may take cracks at me in his testimony. If he does he’ll be lying. Later in day Howard got a call that suggested those rumors weren’t true.
Another East Rm. Lunch to give medals to 21 people selected for their volunteer work in various charity fields etc. It was a good event.
An interview again with Edmund Morris.
Then upstairs & tonight the Kay Graham dinner (9:30 P.M.). Well it started about 9:45 & instead of getting home at 11:30 it was 12:20. But it was a spectacular party enjoyed by all. I proposed a toast to Kay after several speeches had been made.
