The ACIC tuber proposed that Chapters IX for all Areas in Category I of the JCS priority be revised every 3 years and that provision be made for revising pasts of chapters as needed, without the necessity of revising subsections pertaintng to mapping situations that have changed too little to warrant revision. Other Subcommittee members felt that to revise as many Category I Chapters IX as ACIC proposed would preclude the accomplishment of new work. The ACID member agreed to table the scheduling proposal. pending final action by the NIS Coi,imittee on the F"f 1963 schedule. Action on limiting the revision of subsections was felt to be outside the Subcommittee?s province. 4. Schedule for FX 161 The schedule for FY 1961 was rreconsiderted and. approved with two changes: a) At the request of the Army mPm',e the ~ yea` . for NIS 39BM was transferred from the FY 1961 to the F! 1963 srheduln because of major topographic mapping programs in the Area which will not tae concluded in time for coverage in an earl. ier appraisal. After some discussion, NIS 25A formerly in the 1962 forecast) 4oaas aurj4tit t`d for NZS 39B14. b) At the request of the CIA contributory the date for initial contributions to NIS 103 war, changed fro kr 7a .uary 1x')60 to March 1960; the due date at OBI will remain October 1960.. The Subcommittee agreed to recommend the foil grin g Chapter IX schedule for FY 1961 to the NIS Committee: Contributions due NIS No. and Area at D /(1G Chapter to OBI 103 South Pacific Islands >a 60 Oct 60 50A Ghana and T'ogolend Sep 60 Jan 6.1 251.

In deciding upon NIB 68 , consideration was also given to NIB r and Nis 67, but the A: r member considered NIS 68 most important because of the status of th'a mapping programs there. c At the suggestion of the Army aimber, the submittal dates of NIB 42M and Nis 89 were reversed.
