Had lunch with Bob Macy, Bureau of the Budget, who briefed me on the procedure which the Bureau expects to follow in its Hearings this year. Spe- cifically, his Examiners will come to the Agency for a whole series of confer- ences after which there will probably be one fairly brief and informal dis- cussion with the Director... and possibly the Deputies. . .at the Bureau of the Budget. He had some feeling that the DD/P area was going to be difficult to handle this year. I told him I thought that this was only because of the very large number of questions which had been submitted, which I assumed was due in part to the fact that Messrs. Lewis and Wilhelm of his staff were new to the business. I commented that if these two conducted themselves in the same manner that the Macy, Perry, Hamilton trio had in the past I thought they would have no difficulty. Bob also wanted to discuss his Korean report which I had not read. However, more important was his observation of the very confused in- telligence picture in Korea with which I assured him we were thoroughly familiar. He also said that after people here had time to read his report he would appreciate an opportunity to come over and discuss it with us. 2. Larry Houston telephoned to say that the three Internal Revenue men do- ing our work within the Agency had been passed over for promotion for the second time. Apparently their personnel people will not give any credit for work done by them in CIA. He was going to get in touch with the District representative to do what he could. I told him that if he needed my support I would be glad to give it. 3. At the DD/P Staff Meeting Matt Baird announced that General Cabell had told him that we should have at least 100 people studying foreign languages over- seas, that these should be without regard to budget or ceiling, and that they should not be attached to stations. 1+. Met with Harry Reynolds, and discussed the following: Gates Lloyd, and Colonel a. In the case of it was tentatively concluded that charges which had been preferred by the Office of Logistics were insufficient to warrant dismissal through normal administrative pro- cedures. I asked Harry and Vernon to discuss the matter further with Approved For Release 2002/05/08 : CIA-RDP76-00183R000200080100-5 Approved For Release 2002/05/0 ~ P76-00183R000200080100-5 nrT 25X1A9A 25X1A9A 25X1A9A 25X1A9A 25X1A9A 25X1 Mr supervisors and then to decide whether or not we lu_T proceed against him on the grounds of mediocrity. personal interest in this case and that I thought the Technical Ser- vices Staff should be made to handle the case. This is particularly true in view of a Fitness Report made out by II supervisor in TSS...which is not bad at all...and an extremely contradictory confi- dential letter written by the same individual at about the same time. b.

After the meeting I assured Harry Reynold ere was no truth to the rumor... which is apparently rampant...that Mr. is to return and be- come the Director of Personnel. Harry wants to get together with me sometime next week to talk about DD/S supergrades. 6. Talked tol labout s future and agreed that the SE Division would be a satisfactory place for his next assignment. This would anticipate that would move to Ken's Staff when went to the WH Division. 11owar7 Is chances of going overseas would not be prejudiced by this move. We also discussed briefly the coordination between him and Doug This has always been a fairly fuzzy relationship and the time apparent 2 5X1 ly has come when we have to spell it out rather clearly. I asked him to get together with Doug to see if they could agree on what the proper relation hi should be and to draw up a paper for my consideration. We discussed the housing situation and I eed to speak to the Director about it first and then to get in touch with in order to settle some 25X1 of the broad policy questions.
