N.S.C.—mainly on Grenada. Our forces have been wonderful & most effective. We’ve captured about 700 Cubans, most of the Grenada mil. has faded back into the population leaving weapons & uniforms behind. We’ve brought a great many Americans out particularly our medical students from the St. Georges U. Medical School—they kissed the ground when they reached the U.S. We had a preliminary briefing on the upcoming trip to Japan & Korea. Then a Budget review. We have only achieved 1⁄2 the savings we tried for & now our own agencies are asking for more money than we’d proposed. I think it’s time for a lecture. Off to Camp David. All the staff—(hundreds) were out on the lawn all of them enthused about Grenada. It was heartwarming.
