[. . .] A meeting upstairs in the treaty room with House & Sen. leadership on the need to get a budget before they recess a week from Fri. Things got a little feisty and I found myself delivering a sermon—of which I dont regret one word. It strains my patience to hear Demos talking as if they are the cutters of spending & we are the wasters. Nancy out to a lunch with Kay Graham & Meg Greenfield. I lunched on the Truman balcony—a beautiful day for it.

Rcvd. top secret word on our Walker spy case. We have to assume that since 1966 they have completely compromised our Navy Communications system and our codes among other things.

Called Rock Hudson in a Paris Hospital where press said he had inoperable cancer. We never knew him too well but did know him & I thought under the circumstances I might be a reassurance. Now I learn from T.V. there is question as to his illness & rumors he is there for treatment of AIDS. Usual homework, some reading & so to bed.
