Dick Stone reported in from Central Am. Things are looking better there. In the Rose Garden we had a ceremony recognizing the contribution of Hispanics to our military. I was surprised at how many Gen’s. & Admirals there are of Hispanic descent. We’re winding up Hispanic Heretage Week. Met with the coalition for Tuition Tax Credits. I think we reassured them that we’re truly serious about getting this passed. An interview with News Week. Subject was Lebanon & our Marines. A modest but fine young man came by. He is entering Stanford U. He is 23—a Paracomando, fighter pilot & Capt. in the Belgium military. He is Prince Philippe heir to the Belgian throne. Most of the R.N.C. were in the state dining room for lunch. I did Q&A. They are really revved up & Gung Ho. Met with Geo. Shultz briefly & then proceeded to a Nat. Security Planning Group meeting. We approved some rewriting of the directive to C.I.A. for Covert activities in Nicaragua. Off to Camp David.
