In reviewing our operations for the month of January at the Deputies' Meeting, the Director noted that the International Cooperation Administration in one case and the Department of the Navy in another had employed people whose loss we regarded as a net gain and commented that he thought we ought to stop other agencies from employing such people. I pointed out that it could well be that our personnel records on these in- dividuals did not reflect our actual feelings about them and that before he took up the matter with the Navy---which he proposed to do in the one case---we had better check to make sure of our facts. He agreed and gave Mr. Kirkpatrick this responsibility. 2. I asked Kirk if he would hold up on his "overtime" paper which I received re- cently pending a study of the situation by the Office of Personnel. He said that he would. 25X1A9a 3. called my attention to Executive Order No. 10758 which sets up the Career Executive Program and suggested that someone should be analyzing it and making recommendations as to whether or not we should participate. (I have spoken to Gordon Stewart about this.) 5. I arranged for Bob Macy to come over and talk with about the new NSCID's which are going to be discussed at a meeting of the National Security Council on Thursday.

He wanted me to understand that this fellow was really just another pair of hands for the OCB and that I should not take too seriously Elmer's statements about what a great place this was for a youngster to be trained. 9. I notified Matt Baird that promotion to grade GS-16 had been approved by the Supergrade Review Board and that presumably the Director would call Ed in and present it to him. 10. I also notified that Mr. _promotion to grade GS- 25X1A9a 25X1A9a 16 had been approved. 25X1A9a 11. I spoke to Kirk and about the rumors concerning the Director's retirement and recommended that they suggest to the Director that he make some an- nouncement on this subject. 12. I discussed with Kirk the appointment of as Deputy Director 25X1A9a of Personnel. He not only approved, but was rather enthusiastic about the idea. 13. Gordon Stewart telephoned to advise me that the morale in the War Plans Group continued to be very low, that he had briefed on the situation, and 25X1A that recently an officer of the Air Force had gone back before his tour ended and had been extremely critical of us in the Pentagon. I asked him to urge Dick to report this to General Cabell before he heard about it from other sources. Approved For Release 2000/09/08 : owe 00183R000300010092-1
