Met with and members of his Staff, I 25X1A9a of our Printing and Reproduction Division to disci.ss our requirements in the 25X1A6a reproduction plant for Linotype and letter press equipment. JA9a and his associates were emphatic that unless the Director so directed they wo no I ment eliminate i$ hazard most areas, They be ieved that any change presen equipment should be in the direction of expansion rather than reduction. 25X10 25 C1A It was agreed by all concerned that starting immediately, and continuing 25X1A for a period of approximately ninety days, an accurate record of all reproduction requirements would be kept. This record should reflect not only the volume of requirements but should also indicate those require- method. It was understood that this period might be a little shorter or a little longer but that in any case we would get down to statistics as fast as possible. 25X1A9a has advised me that he expects the NIS Program to expand in volume somewzere between twenty-five to fifty per cent over its present volume with- in the next few months. In view of the foregoing I think that we must tell the Joint Committee on Printing (Harrison) of the action we have taken and that we will consider the possibility of reducing or eliminating Linotype and letter press a ip- ment after we have had the time to study the actual statistics. If 25X1 9a and his people are anywhere near accurate we do need this equipment and should keep it, regardless of Mr. Harrison's views. 2. Met with Bill Peel to discuss his re-examination of DD/A tables of organi- zation and ceilings. Agreed that we had already had a hasty look and that he should now take a fairly thorough look which he estimates will take him about another week. 25X1C 30 reports that the National Capital Park and Planning Commission.

However admittedly, our principal objective was to gain 175 parking spaces. I told that I might like to arrange an appointment to see Mr. Kelly, Director of the Commission, but would wait until we had received a letter confirming his report. 25X1A9a 4. I cautioned that as soon as there was a real indication that the Hurley-Wright Building was avai able to us we should figure out what component of the Agency could best utilize this space. 25X1A9a reported on his visit to the yesterday with 25X1A6a 25X1A9a wants this Wing u now says that TSS needs it more for an office type building than for an industrial type building. The I 25X1A6a is not particularly well suited for office space, is,25 A9a ere ore, investigating with PBS to determine whether there might be any other space available which is more suitable for offices and, in addition, is asking PBS for an estimate of the cost of modifying the Building in accordance with - 25X1A9a 25X1A9a wishes. 6. Discussed with Dr. Tietjen the coordination of his Psychiatric Program with the Assessment Program now in the Office of Training. Told Dr. Tietjen that it was my strong feeling that these two activities should be extremely closely coordina- ted, if not merged. Asked him to discuss this matter with and to come back to me with their recommendations. 25X1A9a -2- Approved For Release 2001/08/08 :CIA DP76-00183R000100100019-4
