We also discussed housing at and I agreed to go down to the site with Matt as soon as the airstrip is finished, Which should be not later than the first of November. He stated that he believed the Agency should finance the con- struction of houses so that adequate instructor personnel could be induced to ac- cept assignments at this station and that, in addition, if houses were immediately available more training facilities could be moved from the Washington area to _ 25X1A6a He confirmed Dr, Tietjents point of view that with only thirty-six students on e site it was a very expensive operation for which we might be severely criti- cized if it were to become known generally.
