After a brief review of the purpose of the withdrawals, Mr. Preston noted that this letter relates to monies 'that have already been spent. 11 Mr. Preston told me that the Appropriations Committee conferees are meeting this afternoon on the supplemental appropriation. The question of meeting of the appropriation conferees on the military appropriation bill is still up in the air. He said the Chairman plans to take the foreign aid appro- priation bill to the floor of the House tomorrow under a rule waiving points of order. He noted that since the Chairman and principal Committee members will be on the floor there will be little time for any conference meetings. He told me also that no new continuing resolution is in the works to extend expenditure authority beyond the 8 December termination date of the present resolution. Mr. Preston told me there should be no difficulty with the Senate amendment to the supplemental which provides for RFE/RL. 25X1A 12.

I thanked him for his consideration. 13.

(Internal Use Only - PLC) The status of S 1438, the Ervin Bill, was discussed with Miss Marcia MacNaughton, Staff Member of Sub- committee on Constitutional Rights of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Miss MacNaughton stated that the bill had been voted on favorably without amendment in executive session by the Judiciary Committee but has not been reported out as the Committee report is still in draft. She stated the report would be the same as the report submitted to S 782, an identical bill, which was passed by the Senate in the previous Congress. I aked if the Director's letter of 21 May 1971 to Senator Ervin requesting a full exemption to S 1438 would be noted in the report since the report to S 782 contained a statement that the DCI accepted S 782 with the specific ex- emptions granted. Miss MacNaughton stated that the statement would be deleted; however, the Director's letter of 21 May would not specifically be mentioned. She expected the bill would be reported out within a few days and calendared for Senate vote. Miss MacNaughton was aware of the Agency's exemption and the President's broad authority to grant other exemptions in the House version. She felt the differences in House and Senate bills would be taken care of in conference. Mr. Richard Barton, Staff Assistant of Subcommittee on Employee Benefits, House Committee on Post Office and Civil Service, was subsequently called, and he was aware of the status of S 1438. He felt that Senator Ervin will probably seek an early Senate vote and the bill will pass. The Hanley Bill (the House version of the Ervin Bill) will not be considered by the douse Post Office and Civil Service Committee until the early part of the next session. 7. (Internal Use Only - JGO) Returned the transcript of the testimony of the Secretary of Defense before the House Committee on Armed Services on Tuesday, 16 November, concerning H. R. 8856, a bill to provide an additional Assistant Secretary of Defense, to Miss 'IKalinowski, of the Committee staff. 8. (Confidential - JGO) Met briefly with Mr. Al Westphal, House Foreign Affairs Committee staff, who told me that as of noon today he does not foresee any immediate action on S. 18, the Radios bill. At the earliest,25XlA he does not see any consideration for meeting of the conferees until after the completion of the conference meetings on the Foreign Aid bill. - CA Staff, has been advised.
