N.S.C. Briefing—probably Buds last. Subject was our undercover effort to free our 5 hostages held by terrorists in Lebanon. It is a complex undertaking with only a few of us in on it. I wont even write in the diary what we’re up to.
Phoned the E.P.A. where all the staff was celebrating it’s 15th Birthday. Then a meeting with Ga. Fla. N. Car. & Ala. Reps. & Sens. (only a few) they made a last pitch for me to sign the Textile bill. I listened but feel I must veto it. It is pure protectionism. Over to E.O.B. to speak briefly to the org. of former Congressmen & women. Told them about the summit. Back to the Oval O. for lunch & cleaning up some paperwork. Now we’re off to N.Y. for the 30th Birthday party of Nat. Review. It was a fun night with a lot of humorous speeches—even mine. It’s been a long time since we stayed at the Plaza.
