Arch Bishop Arietta of Costa Rica came by. He’s a very fine man who is totally aware of the evil of the Sandinistas. From then on the subject was debate—some interruptions of course. Out on the South Lawn a ceremony recognizing the Young Astronauts program. Little Drew Barrymore—the child in “E.T.” was one of the children. She’s a nice little person. Then a signing of a consumer bill that makes it possible to recall dangerous toys as adult products can be recalled. Over to E.O.B. for a debate practice session. It went pretty well. Since the 1st debate I’m a little edgy about letting myself get bogged down in specifics. I did better today. Then a double session of T.V. taping; some spots for candidates & then some lengthy visuals for a Navy League Dinner, a Boy Scout award to Maude Chasen, The Nat. Elec. Contractors, International Police Chiefs etc.
