The Army member explained that the Army positioti extended to other fiscal years as well, and proposed that future Chaptet TX commitments be changed from 8 to 7 Chapters IX per year because of the additional work load imposed by the Chapter Annual program. Both WAHO members agreed without reservation to the Army proposal. The AWS tepresentative also supported the proposal, although he indleatedelhat a temporary shift in personnel had been mate to meet immediate deaWines. The ACIC member reported that an extra person had been added to the staff to compensate for the additional work required for Chapter I Annliels.

Stibcommittee Farposals for NIS Committee Consideration The members of the Subcommittee estimated that the preparation of Section 19 contributions to 12 Chapter I Annuals is the approximate equivalent of one contribution to Chapter IX. The Subcommittee therefore agreed to recommend alternate proposals to the NIS Committee for consider- ation: a) that the Chapter IX requirements be adjusted from 8 Chapters per year to 7 or b) that the Section 19 portion be deleted from all future Chapter I Annuals. 4?

Comments on Section 19yortion_of Chapter I Annual for NIS 7 The Chief of the Coordination Staff read the very favorable comments received. from OBI concerning the Section 19 portion of the Annual for IS 7, Denmark, and also reported that the suggestion had been made orally that time spent in its pir,,,:paration by some of the contributors was excessive and that perhaps tAe information should be less complete.
