Our friend King Hussein arrived—we had a good visit. There are still a few glitches in trying to put an international meeting together that would lead to direct negotiations between Jordan & Israel but I dont think they are insurmountable.

Then I went out to Andrews A.F.B. for the farewell ceremony for Gen. Vessey—Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff. He is retiring after 46 yrs. in the service. It was a splendid ceremony and those young men of ours in uniform make me very proud. Just learned our latest recruiting has resulted in the Army having 91% high school graduates.

Back to the W.H. and a meeting with Margaret Heckler. A back biting campaign has her very upset & justifiably so. The gossip is that we’re railroading her out of H.H.S. & shipping her off to be Ambas. to Ireland. Well that last part is true but it’s because I truly want her to be Ambas. She has agreed to think about it & I’ve told her I’m going to go to the press to blast the gossip as entirely false.

A pvt. dinner upstairs here—32 people—for the Prince & Princess of Lichtenstein & the Crown Prince & Princess. It was a very nice evening—Burt Bacharach & his wife entertained.
