Authorized publication of These are the two basic regulations to which all others will be keyed. 25X1A9a 2. At the Deputies Meeting, Mr. Dulles raised contractual problem, and we discussed in general the desirability of placing a contracting officer and a lawyer on full-time with the TSS Contractual Program. It was generally concluded that, even though this might not be a full-time job at the moment, it might be highly desirable to do it at least the next several months. Mr. Dulles approved of this, and I will discuss it with the General Counsel and the Procurement and Supply Office and see that it is done. Mr. Dulles raised the question of the new building in which he is intensely interested and asked me to talk to the Comptroller and the General Counsel as to what the best way to proceed is. We were in general agreement that our strongest points for argument were the tangible savings which we could effect by being under one roof and the fact that we were turning back a very large amount of FY 1953 money. We must pull all of this together at a very early date in order to give Mr. Dulles and appropriate people in Congress a thorough briefing when we are called upon to do so. 25X1 C4a 25X1A9a Mr. Dulles mentioned that he was very much impressed with our FBI Liaison man, and that he thought he was very sincere in trying to better our relations with the FBI. Mr. Dulles also said that he wanted to call on Mr. Hoover very early after he was sworn in, and tentatively he plans to do so next Wednesday, 4 March. 25X1A9a Mr. Dulles approved of the extension of as a con 25X1 A9a sultant to PSB until 30 June 1953, and I have notified accordingly. 25X1X7 so a ton Approved For Release 2001&0': 1~-RDP76-00183R000100090043-9 Approved For Release 2001/03/};~-RDP76-00199OR000100090043-9 25X1A6a Security ?ntorm[kiaa Mr. Dulles indicated that the heat was off a little bit, and he felt certain that 20 days would be soon enough. I reported that the special bill for General Cabell was now at the House and the Senate and hearings in the Armed Services Committee would probably take place on Tuesday. I raised the question of the position we have taken in the past that we would not actively solicit for charitable drives within the Agency except the Red Cross and Community Chest. Mr. Dulles approved of continuing this policy and asked that the letter he was about to sign to the Society for Crippled Children be as courteous as possible. 25X1A 3, Walter Pforzheimer reported that he had talked to Dick Arens, the Committee Counsel for the Immigration and Naturalization Subcommittee, concerning their Inter est in They indicated that they are willing to submit questions to us and will draft a letter to the Agency. They will give us the draft to make suggested changes prior to actually dispatching it.

We left the matter that we would look at it when it was written and decide then who would sign it. 25X1A9a 7. At the request of Congressman Dewey Short of Missouri, I interviewed a He is 48 years old and is now a GS-11 with the Veterans' Administra- tion. He has a law degree and some CIC experience during World War II. He is probably not "suitable for long-term employment with this Agen ." However, I arranged to have him interviewed by Personnel and someone in shop. I 25X1A told him that we were not taking on very many people at the moment, appreciated his interest, and asked him to.fill out papers which we would give active con- sideration if and when our situation changed. 25X1A9a 25X1A9a 25X1A9a 8. was over to review our memorandum to the Director explaining the statistics which we furnish the National Security Council having to do with the cost of our Psychological and Intelligence effort. I have asked him to get this paper ready today if possible. 9. was in to review the agenda for the Career Service Committee. I told him that, in nor opinion, the last item having to do with "Personnel Categories" should not be presented to the Career Service Board until the DD/A was prepared to endorse it and that I had not had time to study it and couldn't say whether he would endorse it or not. I suggested that he point this out to Mr. Wolf on Monday with my recommendation that it be deleted from the agenda. 10. of Mr. Becker's office was in to ask my advice on what to do about Personnel Evaluation Reports made out by Mr. Becker. He said that there were some of these that Mr. Becker would want reviewed by the Director and others where he thought this would be unnecessary. I told him that General Smith had indicated that he did not wish to review these and that I would instruct Personnel that in these cases, if they were not reviewed by the Director, it was o.k. 25X1A6a 25X1A9a 12. I received from a letter from the 'White House, signed by the President, on the subject of "Proposing an Amendment to the Constitution of the United States Relative to Making of Treaties and Executive Agreements and to Impose Limitations with regard to Executive Agreements." I handed this to John 25X1A9a - with instructions to attend a meeting at the 'White House tomorrow morning SECRET Approved For Release 2001 /?3/30 : RDP76-00183R000100090043-9 Approved For Rele?,pe 2001 /03/3 $EC DP76-00183R000100090043-9 5eIUr v 1+ EnrmatinTl on this subject and to prepare for the Director's signature comments from this Agency to be submitted to the White House by Monday. 25X1A9a 13' whom we had planned to send to 25X1 A6a advised him this morning that he is going to resign. Apparently, he finds his conscience and our mission incompatible. This puts us in a bad spot since we are long overdue to get a lawyer to ~ This is something we must follow 25X1A6a up on without delay. 25X1 C 25X1A 15.

I approved the transfer of from the FE Division to the Projects Administrative Planning Staff. There is no change in his present grade, which is GS-13. 19. During the past weekend it was necessary to provide clerical, typing, and reproduction assistance to the DD/P for the preparation of a report to the Jackson Committee. The individuals rendering this assistance voluntarily worked a great deal of overtime in order to meet the deadlines. As a result of this.. I forwarded to Mr. Dulles for signature,1j3 letters of commendation in behalf of these individuals. 20. I submitted our final report to the Inspector General on recommendations made as a result of his field trip.
