Bkfst. with Pres. of Lebanon—Amin Gemayel & then a meeting with him & his ministers & our N.S.C. & state people as well as some cabinet members in the cabinet room. I’m impressed, he is modest & apparently totally dedicated to doing his job for the people of Lebanon. He wants us to help him set up his admin. Lunch with George Bush—he’s really been out on the trail campaigning for our cand’s. (about 5 days a week). Jimmy Lyons & Ted Stivers came in with an ambitious plan for holding our team together. They’ve talked to Bill Wilson about taking it on & he’s willing apparently to give up the Vatican role to do it. I’ll have to talk to him. First he’s very good at that—2nd they would have him a deputy to me complete with staff, at cabinet level etc. I think it would cause chaos in a well organized set up. Taped commercials for cand’s.—then a reception in tent on S. Lawn for N.R.C. staff. A pleasant affair. They’ve already got bumper stickers reading “shut up.”
