_JM Approved For Release 2003 MrRJA1380R000200010008-5 Journal - Office of Legislative Counsel Page 3 Tuesday - 25 September 1973 7. I I- JGO) Met with Chairman Lucien Nedzi, Intelligence Subcommittee, House Armed Services Committee, and brought him up-to-date for his information on Southern Air Transport and the Senate session on the Defense bill. I reviewed with him the House Foreign Affairs Committee request for briefing on Agency operations in Chile. In brief, Nedzi agreed that we probably should not brief on Agency operations but that he could see no objection to an intelligence briefing on the Chilean situation together with an appropriate response to a question concerning Agency involvement in the coup. He asked that I keep him advised. 8. JMM) Called Ed Braswell, Chief Counsel, Senate Armed Services Committee, to say that the Director is anxious to talk to Chairman Stennis as soon as convenient regarding hearings on our legislation and also regarding our appearing before the Foreign Relations Committee on Chile, etc. Braswell said that Stennis was preoccupied with the Trident debate and the trial of his assailants this week and it might not be easy to see him immediately but suggested I call his personal secretary Mildred Ward. Called Mildred Ward and left word with her of the Director's desire to see the Senator as soon as convenient. She said she will let us know and indicated she would try to work it in this week. 9. I I- GLC) Made arrangements with Dorothy Fosdick, Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations staff; Darrell St. Claire, Ass ant Secretary to the Secretary of the Senate; and William H. Wannall, Senate Sergeant at Arms, for the handling of classified charts to be used by Senator Henry Jackson in a secret session briefing of the Senate on Soviet weapons programs and for members of the Office of Security to conduct audio surveillance of the Senate Chamber during the secret session. Mr. Duckett and I then remained in the Vice President's office off the Senate reception room during the session. At the conclusion of the secret session the charts were collected and returned to Headquarters. I have called Messrs. Wannall and St. Claire and thanked them for the exceptional assistance and courtesy extended I received assurances from St. Claire, Wannall, and Fosdick that the transcript of the secret session would receive special handling and be turned over to the Armed Services Committee.
