OTHER ACTIVITIES 1. My request for D/TR's permission to cancel our first offering of AAO-Africa South of the Sahara will reach you today. While few can- didates could ever be anticipated at one time for this course, we obviously need to brief the new Africa Division better on ogram.

In line with our aim of improving the coverage of the AAO's, we expect to lean toward individual rather than classroom briefing on highly diversified areas, with very small posts, like Africa South. I paid a courtesy call onl Inew Chief of the in EE Division. He showed considerably more interest in our Senior Area Seminars than in the AAO, though of course he may be taking the latter for granted. 3, In regard to PPS's staff study on area training, I am convinced that ORR is the only sizable component of the DDI w,ich will serious- ly miss a regular scheduling of Regional Studies. I discussed ORR's area training needs two weeks ago with TO and PO for that office, and advised him to put his specific needs in a memoran- dum to D/TR, L1.. is attending the two-day Conference for Corporation Execu- tives a the Statler on the "Business Outlook in the Middle East." 5, L __]gave a talk to eighteen students of the International Cooper- ation Administration Institute on Development Programing held at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, September 29, 1959.
