Lunched withi Chief of Station at 0. There are no special problems, although I did review with him our impressions of his sta- tion which I did not have an opportunity to do before I left 2. Shef Edwards andi came to see me. Shef is worried about the increase in his ceiling that would result from running our own guard force in the new building. I told him that I thought we should not resort to any gimmick but merely face the facts of life and add these positions to his ceil- ing. The Director has already approved of our having our own guard force. 3. Shef is sending a man to New York to work with the architects. He is going to need some additional people to monitor the construction phase of our project. I told him that I would authorize whatever was necessary in addition to his regular T/O. Some of these people, if carefully selected, can. be phased into the guard force when we actually go into the new building. ZI.. Shef advised that ould probably submit a recommendation that we build an underground vault in lieu of adding to our Records Center at 6. Spoke to labout the necessity of arranging for a plan to evacuate If necessary. This has been done. He also reported that in the course of disposing of certain documents I I our crypto- graphic system had been destroyed; however, we are in contact and the operator is doing the best that he can from memory.

Karl is going to school and apparently was enrolled without George's knowledge. 25X1A9A c. George assured me that he had no objection to becoming a Vice-President in CAT. 11. Lyman Kirkpatrick mentioned that due to competition in recruitment we were going to have to get our senior people to go back to their universities and help if we were going to get the kind of people we needed. I said that such a program was already started, but I must get Harry Reynolds and[ was in to discuss a number of problems. a. He is not happy about the effectiveness of office in coordinating his problems with the FE Division an o ers. He suggests that if Karl were located in closer physical proximity tol office this might improve the situation. This is a part of the over-all problem of sorting out the line of command, which we must do with the Division while is here. 25X1A9A Approved For Release 2006/01/03 ; CIA;RDP76-00183R000200080094-3 Approved For Releae 2006/01/03 CIA RD 76-00183R0002 0080094-3 f.

Shef confirmed that he had been requested to do a complete investi- gation, including a CE, of CAT. I should tell about this. 25X1 15. Shef suggests that we conduct a security check of our Latin American stations at least annually. I think that this is in order. 16. With reference to Mr. letter to Mr. Dulles, Harry Reynolds advised me that an employee of GHI actually offered to sell a list of 1,000 names to a foreign embassy for $4,000. 17. 1 -1 buzzed to caution me that if any of our people should be invited to the Soviet Embassy's "October Revolution Party" on 7 November they should, of course, decline. 18. General Cabell called me after I had gone home and asked me to return to the office. Here he brief hat the President was concerned at the I I and directed that I take appropriate actio n within the DDS area in the event that the war in the Near East should spread or become eneral. I notified all of our office heads and asked General particularly to insure that alternate means of communication were available.
