At my suggestion I introduced OCPW, to since OIS is satisfactorily doing for DDP what _ division is trying hard and unsatisfactorily doing for OCPW. We gave kjN= the Terms of Reference for the forts coming NIE on Resistance Potential. 2. consulted me respecting Mr. Amory's proposal to establish an IAC Sub-committee in Photographic Intelligence. This idea had been generated by Mrs. Sheldon at the time she was in Art Lundahl's Photographic Division under Jimmy in ORR. Without reference to either Guthe or the DDI has gotten Lundahl to give him direct a memorandum on deficiencies in Photographic Intelli- gence. Based on thimemorandum,of 21 May, the DDI had requested Lundahl direct to took up a piece ofpaper d serve as a basis for establishing an IAC Sub-committee. 9&M is opposed to the proposal largely because the state of interagency coordination in this field and current Defense Department attempts to resolve specific problems are sufficiently satisfactory that no inter-departmental committee is required. ; In Captain Staley's absence, I talked with Col. Maxwell of the Rainbow Team of JIC(74683) and explained to him that cooperation ' this point in order to elicitabe facts might save us all considerable misery later on. Maxwell got the point, and undertook to provide,if possible, copies of : (a) JIC 620/8, a paper to provide service coordination in Photographic Intelligence; (b) a copy of a Presidential memorandum restricting handling Of- overflight questions to the President and Secretary of Defense; and (c) a JCS Directive on South East Asia Reconnaissance requirements. Maxwell was not able to provide this before started his leave on Friday. I so told 25X1A9a volunteering to carry on with Maxwell and undertook to inform Art Lundahl by 30 August as to any developments. Tuesday, 17 August 1954 Did nothing Wednesday, 18 August 1954 Mr. Crookshank of G-2 informed me that all G-2 had wanted to do when it sent the fa ous'nemorandum asking for concurrences in a vague Approved For Release 2001/08/28 : CIA-RDP61SO075OA000600010002-1 25X1A9a 25X1A9a 25X1A9a 25X1A9a proved FR ylease 2001/08/28: CIA-RDP61S00750 0600010002-1 proposal respecting release of information to civilian contractors, was to find out if their present practice of-briefing these contractors on the basis of intelligence was agreeable. He r?fized that the G-2 memorandum had not made this point and asked that it be returned. I had General Moreau do so and asked himto imform 25X1A9a Thursday, 19 August 1954 All agencies having concurred in the release of NIS to USIA, we prepared and disseminated the necessary revision -of 45/ 12. Friday, 20 August 1954 All agencies having agreed in the release of NIE's to USIA, I transmitted to General C,~,bell for signature, a memorandum to the NSC requesting designation of'USIA as a recipient of National Intelligence.

I assured him that the General Counsel had deter- mined from the Department of Justice that that Department considered this term appropriate. General Cabell then signed the paper and redistributed it as an IAC document. Tuesday, 10 August 1. Attended IAC, which meeting was the last to be attended by General Porter who is leaving and will be replaced by Admiral Layton. Major Johnson informed me that Colonel Mims had died. 3. inquired whether it was really necessary for the DCI to as t e NSC to designate USIA as a recipient of national intelligence, since USIA had been receiving all the NIEs for some time and at Mr. Amory's request. I referred _ to NSCID 1, paragraph 5a and told him that even though we were ratifying an existing arrangement it seemed to me desirable (remembering the FCDA case) to regularize our procedure.

G-2 and ONI finally gave their reluctant concurrence to the proposal to disseminate NIS to USIA, and I therefore issued IAC-D-45/55 requesting IAC approval. This exercise, coupled with the service agencies' inability to concur in the proposal to give NIEs to USIA, made it clear that the security segments of each of the military agencies were bein obdurate. To aid in their education I arranged with to have a meeting next week at which security representatives from Army, Navy, Air Force and JIG would listen to USIA explain its security practices and ask whatever ridiculous questions they wished to ask. State, AEC and FBI had all con- curred in both proposals (i. e., NIS and NIE).

I declined to type a current version ,mf the 9 Progress Report since it was 21 pages in length, since Ann was on vacation, and since it appeared we would have to retype several mats for the USIA Survey. 25X1A9a In view of complaints that ONE had not had an opportunity to train their girls to run the complicated electric typewriters, I sent our manufacturers instruction book. 2.

I made two points: a. It should be clear whether this report is a semi-annual report of most significant changes or an annual report. (I suggested the latter. ) b. The reiteration by G-2 of its long-standing plaint at clandestine collection should be removed. I reminded _ of the experience of six month's ago and called his attention to the substitute language proposed by General Cabell and pushed through the IAC by the DCI. 2. Worked out with Wally a list of forseeable projects for the period ending 23 August. 3. Took one hour's leave. Thursday, 22 July 25X1A9a 1. f ORR informed me that his people were floundering because Dr. Guthe had asked them to produce a report on some matter or other raised by Admiral Espe of ONI at the IAG meeting of 13 July in connection with materials being illicitly shipped into Communist China. Apparently the materials involved are kerosene products which, by some chemical magic, can be converted into jet fuel. Guthe had then left; Chadwell, who had been present at the meeting, did not know what had gone 25X1A9a on. _ was on leave. I contacted Captain Wilkins, who ar- ranged to have the ORR people put in touch with ONI's chief civilian involved. =later informed me that this conference had made it possible to discover what was wanted. Friday, 23 July 25X1A9a it _ office sent us an "Annex to IAC-D-6/3. If This arrived at noon with an injunction that it be gotten out to the agencies that afternoon. It was a draft of a proposed letter from Approved For Release 2001/08/28 : CIA-RDP61S00750A000600010002-1 Approved For Release 2001/0818 CIA-RDP61 S00750A000600010002-1 the DCI to the NSC, asking that the President direct government agencies to make their information available to the Watch Committee. There was no covering memorandum yet drafted, 25X1A9a and I informed _that it would be very difficult to get this document to the agencies by close of business Friday. He said he felt OCI could give better service than that and that he would have Mr. Amory take it up with them. I told him that that was, of course, his privilege, and suggested that if that was the course to be pursued, I would prefer to return the typed mats 25X1A9a tom so as to be sure that his dealings with OCI would not be adversely affected by any attempt on my part to deal with OCI as I had in the past. We therefore typed the mats and re- 25X1A9a turned them to At 2:30 we received the minutes for typing. On these minutes, as also in the case of the proposed IAC document, I discovered wording which I felt could be improved. 25X1A9a When I made my suggestions to - he gave me to understand that the documents were beyond questioning, since they had been already approved by Mr. Amory. It became clear to me that 25X1A9a -view of the matter was that we would do the mechanical work and that he was in charge of the substantive preparation. 25X1A9a I said nothing to- about this further, but suggested to Wally that this seemed to be an 1800 shift from the line advanced by 25X1A9a _in office at the time that the shift of the IAC 21%'l Secretariat was discussed. In view of the above, I checked with the Property Procurement Officer as to when ONE might get an 25X1A9a electric typewriter. informed me that it would be a minimum of 90 days. I therefore arranged on Monday to transfer one of our electric typewriters on loan to ONE, pending the arrival of their own typewriter. In connection with the entire matter described above, I found it perfectly possible to be sweet, reason- able, and disgusted. 25X1A9a 2. informed me that the Bureau of the Budget had completed an informal review of the USIA survey and had only two minor comments. I told him I would put these before 25X1A9a the Director as agreed at the meeting with and that the Director would forward them, either with Re repor or, if the report had already been forwarded, would send them along separately 25X1A9a to I wrote this up in a memo to with a 25X1A9a recommendation that the survey pages involved not be rewritten. This recommendation did not get to the DCI before he dispatched the survey.

General Cabell inquired whether we had gotten any Pentagon reactions to the proposed DCID 5/1. I replied that none had been volunteered or sought. He said that General Lewis had been favorably impressed. On Friday, and l asked 25X1A General Cabell what action he expected might be taken during his month's leave. He suggested that if the military agencies to not reply within 2 weeks of the time when the DCID was sent we should instigate a query. 3. Colonel White informed me that had in- 25X1A9a sisted that a notice be issued, effective 1 Jul , abolishing OIC and 25X1A9a transferring its functions as follows: all to except IAC secretariat to ONE; FLP chairmanship to ; DDI repre- 25X1A9a 25X1A9a sentative to IPC to - I informed M, and left 25X1A a draft IAC-D-85 which would inform the agencies of this change. 25X1A9a 25X1A1a 25X1A is to discuss this with-. 25X1A9a 4. General Cabell made two points respecting the USIA a. He would expand the second part of the "type$' state- ment to include, in addition to basic, current and esti- mates, special reports and other-materials as discussed in para D of Tab A. b. Since he believes that subsidizing is wrong, he would not accept the recommendation that CIA's _a- subsidy to State for NIS be increased by any amount. and I discussed this point with Gen- eral Cabell on Friday, at which time he mentioned his position. We pointed out that, the question of funds en- tirely aside, we maintained a conclusion that the produc- tion needed to meet the "typeb' could more completely and more economically be achieved by an expansion of NIS. General Cabell wishes that this conclusion be stated in terms, but that the recommendation based on this conclu- sion m,,~ 1 State's action to expansion of NIS. He would accept a statement that State should expand NIS, provided that that conclusion adds that the question of sub- sidy will be reexamined. suggested that State 25X1A Approved For Release 2001/08/28 : CIA-RDP61S00750A000600010002-1 Approved For Release 2001/08/28 : CIA-RDP61S00750A000600010002-1 will need, and the DCI should supply, some form of support at the moment when financial support is reached. General Cabell agreed with this point and further agreed to consider on his return, a draft letter to State which would make it clear that the subsidy would come to an end on a date cer- tain, thus putting State on notice that they would be on their own. 21A9a 25X1A9a 25X1A9a 25X1A9a 5.

State un- dertook to prepay a emo suggested by which would 25X1A9a set forth OIR's on this subject and submit examples of existing product~,pn with critical appraisal of that production in the light of OIR's 2. informed me that the NSC secretariat had recommended by memorandum of 29 June that the DCI supply by 1 August the official annual status report of the Foreign Intelligence Pro ram, and I discussed briefly with an how to get on with this. Mrs y had directe that ONE do it but (since~s on leave and GJ/ not yet on board) were anxious to prepare the initial paper which would induce contributions. I put forth at length my sugges- tion that this time a draft be submitted since time was short, since the .was a mere drill, and since it would be possible and possibly profitable to write the status report in direct respect to the three national policy,, L for intelligence set forth in paragraph 10 in NSC 16Z/2.

Received from DDT draft DCID 15/1 and draft covering IAC Document. In conference with Dr. Guthe, I suggested that he take up with the DDI a proposal to restore the DCID 3/4 language that an Agency making studies in another Agency's field would not normally disseminate them. This language had been changed by Mr. Amory to enjoin that such Agencies would not normally undertake such studies. The DDI refused to buy this change. He did accept another proposal, namely, to have the FIC advise concerning proposed external research projects rather than recommend. 2. consulted me again concerning FOA's interest in establishing connections with the intelligence community. He showed me, and Mr. Reber perusedsome memoranda he had. gotten together bearing on the FOA case. It turns out that what was originally described by FOA as an AFOIN requirement was in fact a carefully drawn and coordinated all-service requirement submitted to FOA by JCS. 3. Commander Wohler informed me that he, as Commander Cragg's replacement, would be the ONI representative on the NSC status report. I told him that I,had heard nothing about that report and was lying quiet in order not to arouse any sleeping dogs. 4.

I suggested to Johnson that AFOIN complete its report and send it to the DCI for IAC noting, pointing out what corrective action the Air Force was taking in order to snake such mis-release impossible in the future. (NIE 100-54 was recommended by the Board for non-release to any foreign government, IAC-M-148, Sec. Note.) 3. Attended conference with General Cabell on DCID 5/1. Wednesday, 23 June 1954 1. Attended last conference with agency representatives on USIA Survey. 2. Attended conference with DCI at which he agreed to the short version of DCID 5/ 1. ? We put this in final form and the DCI sent it on Friday.

The DDI raised a question as to whether the IAC Members had concurred in the proposed non-production of an NIE on B W . Asked to check this and he was ' able to inform Mr..

It points out that the NSC Executive Secretary may exempt documents or series of documents from the control provisions from time to time and that he has, in fact, so exempted NSCIDs. 3. In connection with the USIA Survey I sent to on the 5th, 6th and 7th of May memoranda respecting the Inter- national Broadcasting Service's reference facilities, including the index of researcig", reports produced by IBS and provided to the survey team by the Chief of the IBS Library Branch. Tuesday, 4 May 1. Attended IAC, which was largely devoted to consideration of the report of the ad hoc committee of the Watch Committee 25X1A9a Checked minutes with Sheldon and - of OCI, of ONE, and Amory. On Wednesday I drafted a "pursuance clause" to the terms of reference in order to cast them in the form of a DCID (1/2).In this pursuance clause I attempted to get the effect of the pertinent sub-paragraph of paragraph 10 of NSC 162/2. Because this would do some violence to the DCI's tentative recommendation to reproduce all of paragraph 10 in the terms of reference and attribute them to 162/2, I also drafted a memorandum from Sheldon to Amory explaining why my approach had been taken and, as well, drafted opening paragraphs for a memo from Amory to the NSC which would induce the NSC to notify executive departments and agencies of the requirement that they make their material available to the Watch Committee. This attempt was successful.

I suggested that the SEC use any color available at the printers and not assigned to another office or committee. Thursday, 6 May 1 . raised with me, in connection with the USIA Survey, his problem of obtaining a periodic publication of USIA/Rome, "Italian Press Trends." I suggested that rather than having the survey team. ascertain the facts and request this publica- tion be provided, he should have the Liaison Division push this matter to the limit of his capability. By so doing, we would all learn something about Liaison Division's capabilities in working with USIA.

Amory and Sheldon wanted the IAC to consider it at their meeting of 4 May. I so informed the agencies and ONE, whereupon ONE wrote a paper suggesting changes in the document. This was discussed by ONE and OCI with DDI on Friday'the 30th, and by DDI with DCI on Saturday the 1st. During the week asked what was going on and I informed him.

He felt there might be some correlation between RIC work and certain manpower studies being produced by the EIC. I supplied him with the IAC document involved and suggested he talk with A Wave, Lt . Misenhelter of ONI (13-1-56038) inquired of me the "need to know" of the RIC because the Navy member of the' RIC is being replaced by another officer who is not fully cleared. She had been speaking with of OCI for a week or so without result. I suggested that the RIC would not be completely served by an agency member who was not fully cleared but suggested that for the real answer to her question she consult As far as "need to know" was concerned, I referred her to the IAC document establishing the committee and suggested that the terms of reference might indicate to her satisfaction whether or not there was a "need to know. " 3. On seeing Regulation 10-315 of 19 April on "Control of NSC Information" I suggested to that she propose a change in this regulation which would make it clear that NSCID's by decision of the NSC Executive Secretary, are excluded from the provisions regarding control of NSC Information. She under- took to do this , advising OCD. When OCD inquired of me what they should do in view of the regulation, I suggested that they disregard it insofar as NSCIDs are concerned and rely rather on the memorandum from excepting NSCID. 4.

Colonel Anderson called me about DCID 3/4 and in the course of the conversation he admitted that interest in DCID 3/4 had been incited by G-2's negative reaction to a pro- posed series of 1954 conferences with on guided 25X1A9a missiles and electronics. I ascertained from that Chadwell had been informally requested by to appraise whether or not it would be profitable to have such con- ferences. Some P&E people had made approaches to the wor~- ing level in The Pentagon and these had been followed up by similar approaches on the part of ASD people. I called Anderson and undertook to see to it that no formal arrangements for con- ferences-'C beaa made unilaterally by CIA/OSI. This seemed to calm him, although he took the opportunity to mention, also, his belief that DSI was passing OSI substantive material which was 25X1A9a not subsequently getting to The Pentagon. -undertook to check this last factandtfor his benefitOIC drafted a staff study 25X1A9a to the DCI respecting such conferences.

His memo, drafted by 25X1A9a , demonstrated an unawareness of NSCIDs and called for an elaborate particularization of procedures. After discussion, 25X1A9a agreed that the regulations should be viewed as _i logical continuance of (1) the Act: (2) the NSCIDs, and (3) the DCIDs .(-eef which he had never heard). We did not reach agree - ment as to the detail with which procedures should be included in regulations but I ended by saying that I would not press the 25X1A9a office for the inclusion of their intra-office procedures. said he would not either but that General Cabell might require it.

At his request, I visited H. S. Foster, Chief of the Public Studies Division in the State Department. Budget restric- tions make it necessary for State to drop publication of their weekly report digesting current articles in the U. S. press per- tinent to U. S. foreign relations.

When General Porter made a big scene about MIC policy and the fact that the appendices to NIE 90 could not go to a foreign government because they contained material which had been marked nonreleaseable when "given" to CIA by _ General Cabell made it plain that his view on dissemination was: the military chiefs act in two capacities--(l) as chiefs of their own service, and (2) as members of the IAC. In the former capacity they can do as they please; in the latter their opinion is entitled to great weight but is not conclusive, since the IAC makes its independ- ent determination. 3.

Attended PRC, which approved the -expenses but which only approved the OSI scientific education study with the Chairman's dissent. As indicated during the course of the discussion by reference to our conduct of scientific biographic registering, it was obvious that General Cabell was implicitly questioning not merely the specific proposal but rather the underlying question of the validity of scientific intelligence itself. I saw Brent informally to raise this suggestion with him and to urge OSI to be something more than merely annoyed. Thursday, 17 September 1. Talked both to Mr. Sheldon and General Willems respecting the Watch Committee proposal for an indications center; Mr. Sheldon wished another week and General Willems had no objection.

I arranged a meeting of with the AD/CD, DAD/CD and following which got together on the 25X1A9a administrative aspects of the Intelligence Periodicals Index. This Index appears monthly and is,Mtcumulated semi-annually. Perhaps the monthly reports could be produced less formally than heretofore, with a resultant saving in money. 2. Got and Ted Nordbeck together on the specific subject of in and the general subject of peri- pheral reporting. 3. Attended IAC. 4. Began a review of the military services' intelligence periodicals. I did this review by using the semi-annual Wcumulation of the IPI for the period January-June 1953. Although hunting primarily for political articles appearing in the service periodicals, the survey raises ad- ditional questions which might be suitable for nominating to the LAC agencies for discussion. Typical are: a) When the services copy, digest, or compend articles previously appearing in State publications, might they well not give attribution, both for the purpose of morality and also in order to avoid false confirmation; b) When subsidiary cos reproduce in their intelli- gence publications articles appearing previously in the major publications of the services, might they not also give full identification; c) Might not an increasing use of State material be possible in the military publications; d) What is the real benefit of these slick magazines, anyway? Wednesday, 12 August 1953 1. I saw Ted Nordbeck's annual progress report of the EIC Subcommittee on Requirements and asked him about the significance of his allusion to the inadequacy of NSCID-2. We agreed to attempt to push the review L$ this this Fall.

Having received from OCD their draft of a revision of Regulation Mon debriefings, I reworked this draft and then returned it to OCD when informed me that OCD would no longer be able to be responsible for debriefings. Conversations with - 25X1A9a developed the fact that the DDI had told that OCD might 25X1A9a drop this function in view of the budget cuts. OCD's suggestion was that the regulation merely be rescinded. We got a memorandum out of them to this effect.

I reiterated the Agency's unconcern with this subject, but remained open to being further convinced. Invited Ennis to peruse OIC' a censorship file. Thursday, 6 August 1953 1. Spoke with Messrs. of OCD about the State Economic Daily (Secret) which we do not get, which we want, and which State is unwilling to have us have. Mr. Reber will arrange talks between OIC and State. 2. inquired as to whether the IAC Minutes contained any prohibition against sending NSCIDs abroad to U. S.. officials. I ran through the Minutes and found no such reference. I so informed - and then discovered that his problem was limited to providing certain field commanders with pertinent parts of NSCID-5. I reminded him of the sensitivity of NSCIDs 5 and 'l, but took the position that the policy on distribution of all directives other than those two was set by the DCI's memo of February 27, 1953. This memo prefaces the compilation of directives and orders that the compilation be available to those whose duties require its use. He asked for two more copies of the compilation and I referred him to OCD. He indicated that NSCID-5 would not be sent abroad, as such. 3. inquired as to the pent status of the draft extended replies on the USSR legal study and the- suggestion as to political analysis. I arranged with her to have this material to Mr. Amory early next week. y r ,- "r, r Approved For Release 2001/08/28 : &fK-` tbP6lS00750A000600010002-1 SECRET Approved For Release 2001/08/EM1FDP61S00750A000600010002-1 Tuesday, 4 August 1953 Security Informatiotl 1.

With respect to the latter of these, transmitted a copy to-requesting that it be printed for distribution to holders of the compilation of directives. 2. The IAC having agreed to refer the 114-Series`' of directives to the Board of National Estimates for review, I dis- cussed this problem at some length with Messrs.

Subsequently informed me that he was writing for ONE a summary of the OCI-USCIB arrangements in this field. 3. Conferred with Wally and on the problem of joint budgeting and suggested that a functional approach had much merit. 4. Received confirmed copy of L&T's letter dispatching the semi-annual report to the NSC. As drafted by OIC, it suggested that future revisions be annual,with semi-annual short supplements. The letter included an added paragraph in which the DCI undertook to brief the President and the Council orally as to CIA's finances, and stated also that he would not do so respecting the finances of other IAC agencies. 5.

Later a "working paper", apparently prepared by PMS, on the subject of "CIA Responsibility for Counter-Sabotage" came to OIC for comment.

They suggested a CIA notice, based on the IAC document on clearance s,which would make each AD responsible for assuring proper clearances of their employees attending IAC meetings. 25X1A9a 2. Attended a special meeting called by the fir)'I, at which he explained to the IADs that Chairman Tabor had written a footnote on the CIA budget at the time it was released to the full House. This note said that it was the desire of the Committee that CIA employment not exceed that of fiscal "53. An appeal to the Senate was scheduled for Friday, but did not take place as the Senate recessed. An appeal back to Tabor is thus the next step. The officers were asked to reexa -nine their program so that they could tentatively decide what functions to abandon in case the squeeze remains on. No firings will be necessary in any case. SAM informed me that when this matter was discussed with the DCI on Thursday, Mr. Amory mentioned that one additional reason we would need relief would be so that we would have leeway to pick tap State Dept. functions. When the DCI evidenced no knowledge of this problem, Mr. Amory pointed out that OIC had been pursuing it with General Cabell , which the DCI apparently thought was just fine. On Friday Matt Baird called me and said that he had attended this meeting and understood that OIC was in this problem; in that event, he would like us to rerneml er that the Office of Training will necessarily be affected by whatever happens to the Foreign Service Institute. I under- took to keep this in mind, but told him it had not previously entered our thinking or conversations with State. 3.

He showed me a staff study signed off by Cabell. At my request he provided me with seven copies, which I undertook to plant with the LAC representatives fnformally in order to elicit their informal reaction. 3. Spoke with about proposed DCID 7/1. G-2 has questioned the inclusion of offers of "services" and of "operational support" as being enlargements of NSCID 7. When it appeared that 00 would lose nothing by dropping this verbiage, I urged 25X1A9a so to do. 4. informed me that he would be gone until 15 July and inquired whether might spent some time with us so that she could learn the details of the IAC machinery and hence be prepared to take over the IAC Secretariat when returned. I expressed surprise that this problem was sufficiently resolved to make it profitable for so to penetrate us. --said it was his understanding that Amory had decided this question and that all that remained was to set a definite date for take over. I played dumb and suggested that we await the return of Messrs. grudgingly agreed to this, saying that ONE would probably not want to assume the IAC functions until August or September anyway. 5. At the DD/I luncheon, Mr. Amory invited comment as to whether CIA should push for unification of military intelligence. It was apparent that he felt that this would be ultimately beneficial to us (e. g. we would only have to go one place instead of four, etc.). No one agreed. Sherman Kent pointed out the theoretical necessity for intelligence to be closely tied to policy consumers. Jamie Andrews pointed out that organizatior6will always have intelligence services, this meaning that if military intelligence were unified, then shortly thereafter each sepatate service would initiate its informal intelligence, the net result being five military intelligence services rather than the four now iA existence and certainly rather than one.

Reconvened with IAC representatives on the Powers/Persons correspondence. Unanimously they preferred a shorter draft. We worked out a revision and on Saturday I delivered this to Col. Fuller for General Cabell. 2. At the request of DD/P personnel, assembled in OIC the DD/I people concerned with personnel. Fifty files were reviewed. Those subject to this phase of th reduction appeared to be more mature and to have more to offer than the group involved last winter. 3. Received from Mr. AorLry a memorandum suggesting a revision of DCID 4/2. which .d4 make certain that item No. 1 ("Taking Direct Military Action Against the Continental U, S. ") was specifically worded to include clandestine delivery of weapons of mass destruction. Mr. Amory, who said that General Cabell wanted this done, had been moved to this proposal by the revision of SE-36. I took this opportunity to pull together our tentative more sweeping revision of this directive and to forward it to Mr. Amory "for guidance". On Saturday he stated that he thought the more sweeping revision desirable and suggested that we have drafts ready by July 16, the day when the NSC will reconvene on 153/1 and draft a new policy. 4. asked me whether our NSC Status Report would touch on psychological warfare. I reminded him that we did have a section on Intelligence Support for those programs. He wanted to be able to inform PSB on this question and he under- took to give the PSB man involved OIC's telephone number and interest in the problem.

Wednesday, 24 June. 1. Attended OCD's front office morning meeting, at which briefed his bosses on his discussions with Nordbeck. All agreed to have and Ted work out a detailed agreement on ~ comparable to the arrangement on Biographies. 2. Attended three hour meeting called by and attended by all interested in E&E. Brammell had prepared a 5-page memorandum. 3. At Dr. Chadwell's request, and so that he could answer a question of Adm. Strauss', I located a 1947 paper on atomic en_>rgy intelligence. Apparently there is in the offing a suggestion that AEC drop its intelligence unit and rely upon CIA and JAEIC. (This would, of course, result in the removal of AEC from the IAC.)) I undertook with Chadwell to see that this old material on AE, held in OIC as inheritor from ICAPS, would be turned over to OSI/NED. 4. At Brent's request, explained to him our. contact, interest, and knowledge of Jim Ennis, with whom Brent eventually talked. 5. Nordbeck, apparently frustrated beyond endurance, urged me to press the D/DCI for a meeting with Park or for the sending of a letter to either General Smith or MrYDulles. I sought an appointment with Cabell sometime before his departure in order to get guidance for CIA/State relations during the month of Cabell's absence. Luckily I was unable to see Cabell. Meanwhile, on Friday morning, Ted informed me that the R Area people had finally gotten to Wdsles, who had for the first time seen the problem and had agreed that the R Area should be uninhibited in its relations with CIA a4 in seeking to work out continuance of functions. Apparently Wades licensed R to move towards any solution, whether subsidy, appropriation,$ by CIA, of functions, or whatever.

At the IAC General Porter, having been in possession of OCI's material throughout the meeting, raised the matter of clearances for IAC meetings. I endeavored to state the procedure to the IAC. Mr. Dulles asked that the procedure be circulated. Before doing so, I made a copy available to General Cabell and called the IAC representatives to remind them of /9 December 1951 memo, after which I circulated it as IAC-D-68/1. Also asked and of OCI to give this problem some thought. Subsequently General Cabell returned his copy of the procedure to OIC , stating that in his opinion it was the correct way to handle this problem. Later Col. Lansing called to say that Porter had forgotten the procedure but, on reviewing it, felt that it was right.

This will at least help us to answer the recent approach made to the DCI for major "B-Area Study" about which General Cabell is interested, but the priority of which is in doubt. 7. Drafted IAC-D-42/3, designed to elicit the IAC member's approval of the printing of the EIC China Trade study, as revised to incorporate minor changes proposed by the IAC members. 8.

Ted Nordbeck informed me that in his opinion we would probably get a decision on FPB more quickly if we worked out in writing the details of the redeployment of functions, money and people. I told him about staff study, prepared for PRC, and subsequently arranged with to get with Ted and work up the kind of paper Ted feels would be useful. 4. Spoke with about current crises in the geo- graphic attache program and urged him to be patient in view of the apparent possibility of an early solution in State. He showed one his interim solution to a problem in South America (namely, ordering an attache, who had been ordered home, to stay).

Also present were (ORR/G), We agreed to continue to sit on the Major's request. I explored the difficulties in Escape and Evasion intelligence support. These grow out of a multiplicity of channels. Air Force intelligence is not entirely aware of what Air Force psyc.inlogical operations want, had asked for, or will ask for. O CD and ORR are not aware of what DDP wants, or will ask for, or what Air Force request DDP will relay, 25X1A9a duplicate or be interested in.

At General Ca1ell's request I drafted a proposed revision of the present procedure for dissem- inating national intelligence incorporating his suggestion that ONE be charged with automatically proposing (on behalf of CIA) that each estimate as finally sent to the IAC be disseminated. Subse- quently filled in of OCD on these proceedings, having gotten agreement from that it was wise for OCD to be intimately involved in matters of this sort. will also attend the IAC meeting on this subject. 4. Spoke, one hour late, with James Ennes, who had come over to inquire further as to whether OIC had any opening available. I reiterated that prospects were black and suggested that he make his own decision as to whether he should formally file his papers with the Agency. He indicated he would do that only when it would be unembarrassing between himself and Park Armstrong. 5. Filled in as to the importance of the semi-annual report on foreign intelligence programs to the NSC. George had been given the job of eliciting OSI's comments. Friday, 19 June 1.
