Dan Evans—now Sen. from Wash. by appointment came with his family—3 sons now grown who were small children when we were Gov’s. together. P.M. Mugabe of Zimbabwe arrived. I was worried that he tended to filibuster. He talked a monologue for 20 min’s. Got around to our—as he put it—intervening in Angola’s affairs because of our effort to get Cubans out of Angola. Then moved to El Salvador & Nicaragua. I caught him taking a breath & interrupted. We can only persuade So. Africa to allow Namibia’s independence if we get the Cubans out. Then I gave a history lesson on Central America. He’s a very opinionated man & his country has voted against us in the U.N. even more times than the Soviets. Cabinet meeting to hear report on Korea, Lebanon et al by Geo. S. & a report on the drought in the mid west & the farm economy by Dick Lyng. Met with a group of educators including college President of all Hispanic heretage. It was a good meeting. Then a reception for the Eagles—about 400 of them. They were enthused & we had a good session—I did some Q&A.
