Approved For Release 2000/09/08 I DP76-00183800 00020104-6 25X1A DD/S 25X1 A9a I prepared for and attended with General Cabell, , Bob Amory, and others the Budget Hearing at the Bureau of the Budget concerning our Fiscal Year 1960 Budget request. Among the significant points which the Bureau raised were: a. whether or not we were too extravagant in our NIS Program. They specifically doubted the wisdom of keeping political sections up to date. b. the effectiveness of our Selection-Out Program. c. an expression of great surprise that we were planning to ask for funds for our auxiliary building during the next session of Congress. 25X1A1a 25X1A12b 25X1A5a1 25X1A6a d. an indication that getting our Reserve up to as well as increasing our regular Budget would be a difficult problem inasmuch as the e. whether or not we couldn't do more economic research such as that done by~y our people within the Agency rather than go outside to have it done. f. whether or not the expenditures in the Western European area, parti- cularly were too large. g. failure to understand why we could not absorb the cost of our periodic step increases. There are several questions that remain to be discussed, but it was agreed that this could be done by our respective staffs and that it would not be necessary for General Cabell to appear again.
