The Cartograreley Division is likely to face a serious las pro- duction problem in the remainder of FY 2957, judging from the degree to which RIS contributors are presently behind schedule. e Concerted efforts to produce great hembers of Sections in the latter Tart of the fiecal year usually causes an intolerable jam of last-minute reeemsts for cartograehic support.

PROBLEM AND RECOMENDATIONS Far East Branch: The preseure of work on the high priority project on veserSen 3 rq,^Den, Indonesia and the lose of full-time clerical assistance resulting from the 25X1A5a1 departure of underline the chief problem of the Branch -- the need for a full-time Intelligence Alaistant and at least one more geographer. The Indonesia job has necessitated coneentrated research effort by three membere of the Branch, with concurrent slighting of their normal research and administrative duties. The lack of full time Iutelligence Assistant help necessitates the porfornutrico of many routine chores by higher-talaried professionals or the "scrounging of clerical assistance from other parte of the Division -- in itself a time-consumieg procedure. Near_East/Africa Branch : A major development in the area is the emergence of a great power vacuum inVrench Black Africa. Full independence for all French Black Africa is considered inevitable by our hebansy in Paris; French officials estimate that French Equatorial and French West Africa will achieve complete political independence in from 2 to 7 years. The Soviets are moving rapidly into this vaceert: and there are strong leasens for believing they are Interested in the strategic mineral field. The IAC Estimatee program for the third quarter of calendar 1957 in- cludes Sudan, France (including Algeria), EWA, Ghana, and French Tropical Africa. There is need for a firm ORR policy for gathering and processing geographic information from the field and producing significant studies before the area gets so hot as to preclude the collecting of first-hand %we knedledge. *USAF * USSR Branch,: It apTears that in recent years the US Air Force has com- pleteleerlvilieqi the system of numbering and filing World War II Gem n n aerial photography in e WWWW2 that creates a number of serious difficulties. An order for photo coverage brought a shipment without a single print covering the area designated. Sore prints were as much as 50 miles off old "urban" rTarbann reports and ANS maps careailed with the aid of aerial photography definitely established almott complete photo coverage for the area. A second shipment was finally obtained that did contain some of the necessary coverage. The incident raises the question of how each coverage has been lost or mieplaced in revising the system of numbering. Another criticism cei! the new system is that in many instances the new AF numbers have been superimposed, thus completely obliterating the original German identifying symbols parts of mhich indicated such essential bits of information as the dates that the photos were taken.
