Called Ed Braswell, Chief of Staff, Senate Armed Services Committee, to say the Director had returned from his trip and was interested in getting in touch with Senator Stennis. Braswell said the Senator would probably not be back in town until after the elections. Braswell suggested we call Mr. Cresswell, of the Senator's personal staff, for detailed information on the Senator's plans. Called Mr. Cresswell who said the Senator would be out on a tour of military bases in the southern U. S. from Monday, 26 October, until Thursday, 29 October.

Cline, Counsel, House Subcommittee on Immigration and Nationality, who told me that he will be travelling to Chile right after the elections with Representative Joshua Eilberg (D. , Pa. ). It was agreed that I will provide Mr. Cline with an informal briefing on the situation in Chile a week or so before departure. I also discussed with Mr. Cline a case involving private legislation for residence credit during service with the Agency outside the U. S. Although he agreed to think about it, he indicated that present Committee rules would preclude approval of such a case and would require that the individual meet with the Committee prior to any consideration of such a bill.
