After N.S.C. meeting—Ken D. stayed behind to recommend some promotions for a number of my people including Kathy & Jim K. After a desk session—bill signing etc. A photo & short visit with Patriarch Sabbah—of Philistine Catholics in Israel. Then lunch & at 12:45 photos with 8 West wing guards. At 12:50 Dr. Hutton—at his office. Sneeze shot & molds were taken of my ears for new hearing aids.

At 1:30 Kathy & Fred Ryan for some talk about my office in L.A. We’ll have a staff of 13 & Nancy will have 4 of her own. Then a meeting with George S. Talked mostly about Central Am. But 1st a brief meeting with Sen. Stennis about a promotion for Admiral presently assigned to N.A.S.A. I’m in favor A session of tapings—7 all told. Then upstairs for exercise & shower.
