Efin Approved For Release. 2001/03/30 : C!fA-DP76-00183 .00300100089-5 DIARY NOTES 25X1A DD/S 25X1 C8a 25X1 C8e 25X1 C 25X1A 25X1A9a 25X1A6a 25X1A6a 25X1A9a 12 July 1961 1. At the Deputies' Meeting this morning: a. We discussed the reluctance of the Bureau of the Budget to release $501,000 from the Contingency Reserve for certain _ expenses during 25X1 A2d 1 July. The Director said that he would discuss this matter with Elmer Staats. I urged that the Deputy Director (Plans) prepare the best estimate he can of our total anticipated expenses during Fiscal Year 1961 and that we present it to the Bureau as soon as possible. Mr. Bissell indicated that he was in agree- ment with this. b. It was learned that the announcement would be made next week con- cerning the establishment of the Defense Intelligence Agency. c. We discussed a request which had been made oncern- ing information about our polygraph program and it was agreed that Shef Edwards would discuss this with ather than supply the_ with this information., ti j/,., {r i. Z 2. I hosted a luncheon for Mr. John F. Haley, Staff Director for the Joint Commit- tee on Printing, and his Assistant, Mr. Louis E. Shomette. I also gave them a very gen- eral briefing on the organization of the Agency with emphasis on our printing require- ments and the necessity for having our own printing establishment. They expressed themselves as being highly pleased and most impressed with what they had heard and seen earlier when they toured our Admin Building Plants. They also ex- pressed themselves as being in complete agreement with the necessity W the Agency f having its own printing facility. They did say, however, that our printing people, espe- cially those in Admin Building, were working under the most unsatisfactory conditions they had seen in the Government. They hoped that we would be able to relieve this situa- tion when we moved to the new building and that we would eventually be able to consoli- date these plants into one modern up-to-date building. We, of course, agreed with all of these ambitions. 3. buzzed to say that General Cabell would be in during the period 23 to 27 July and would like to visit the n the twenty- fourth. I have advised Jim Garrison of this and told him Old ou a necessary details with Walt. 4. I approved of taking leave for three weeks beginning 21 August. Since he will then be going to Harvard immediately upon his return, he actually will be out of circulation, so far as the Agency is concerned, until almost 1 January.
