Met with GOP Leadership (House & Sen.). It was a good meeting & I think we’re together for the coming campaign. Then I presented the Nat. Security Medal to Robt. Rich who is retiring from Nat. Security where he’s done a great job. His family was with him.

Then an N.S.P.G. meeting on the subject of Nuc. testing. For the 1st time I was briefed on the nature of our testing. It isn’t some part of buildup for the new weapons. It is necessary to learn when existing weapons deteriorate and also how radio activity from an explosion can disable things like communications. At my request Cap is going to put together a statement that can be declassified & allow us to tell the people—the real nature of testing. I think the pub. believes the testing has to do with a nuclear arms buildup.

Paula Hawkins came by—she’s promoting legislation to do away with the 3% cost of living trigger for Social Security recipients. Just give them an annual increase based on the inflation rate. I surprised her when I told her I was all for it & she could tell the world that.

Over to E.O.B. for about 115 teen age Repubs. from all over the country. They were a great bunch & enthusiastic about the party.

Then at 6:30 P.M. after a 6 P.M. dinner went to the Marriott Hotel for a reception for about 100 Pol. Action donors.
