Ed Saunders requested that I check with the Special Studies Group (Franke) to ascertain whether or not they were looking into our agent cashier setup. Ed also said he understood that the Special Studies Group had a conference scheduled with.the Bureau of the Budget on 14 September. He had asked Larry Houston to in- 25X1A6a sure that the Group was warned that we did not go into detail with the Bureau. 2. Ed Saunders reported that as a result of certain "open-market transac- tions" by employees coupled with the fact that they were already re- ceiving equalization a owances, the whole matter of equalization allowances and 25X1A2g open-market transactions was under study and a report would be caning up soon. 3. Ed queried me conc the advisability of destroying a section of the warehouse at Project I told him that as I recalled it I had been as- sured by the Logistics ice that it would be cheaper to construct new warehouse space if it should be needed than it would be to renovate or preserve the present structure.

Larry plans to leave for his trip to the Far East on 114 September; he will stop at selected points in Europe on his return. I looked at the FE project which proposes the renovation of a building In view of the fact that the building is needed by 1 March 1955 and it ted that the work can be completed three months after authorizations, I advised that I saw no point in taking unusual action to expe- dite it. 10.
