-Approved For Release-2001/03/30 :1XCP76-00183R000300100095-8 DIARY NOTES 25X1A 25X1A9a DD/S 1. I talked with , James Garrison, and as well 25X1 A9a as with , about the intercom system in the new building. Jack has now agreed that the Director's office should return to the original scheme. Jim and H. S. reported tha the cost estimates for all of the change orders which have been received are accurat / O 1l of our money is obligated except $60,000. This, of course, does not take into consideration the $2.3 million which we have in escrow with the Bureau of the Budget. If we have a justifiable claim against this $2.3 million I think that we can get some of it released. I told Jim that I would prefer to go to the Bureau of the Budget be - fore we were in the red rather than afterwards. He feels, however, that we should wait a little while longer before warning them that we are going to have to draw from this reserve. 25X1A9a 25X1A9a 2. Having given Jim Garrison a deadline of 1 July to produce a master plan for the move to the new bu' as keenly disappointed in the report which he, H. S. made to me. They may have a master plan, although doubt it. If there is one it is simply in their heads or in rough notes of some kind or another or in loose-leaf notebooks which H. S. and Mel have. I told Jim that this was most unsatisfactory and that I felt it was dangerous; also that we could not expect to complete a move of this magnitude without something more than an informal plan which was in someone's head. I asked him to undertake to draft his plan at the earliest pos- sible date. 25X1A9a 3. telephoned to sa that the have been having some trouble with a 25X1 A6a few pranksters in the JOT class He is making a thorough investigation of the situation and will make a more formal report and recommendation to me within the next few days. Apparently, some of the recent pranks have been abusive, if not destructive, of Government property and have also disrupted the training program rather severely. 25X1A9a 25X1A6a 25X1A 25X1A9a 25X1A9a 25X1A9a 4. telephoned to ask whether we could help Colonel _ financially with a party he wants to give for a few of the many residents in the area who have entertained him from time to time primarily because of his position I told that we 25X1A9a could help Colonelllllllllllllllllll~ and that he should ask him to submit his proposal in writing. In the course of this discussion we talked about Colonel 25X1A9a ms's departure and General ascertained from him that it is still indefinite but it might be as early as October of this year.

I told him that we should discuss this with when he returns within the next few days and if this is actually a fact we should get out of there inasmuch as he is surplus to the ,Z-,4J Administration'tk career service rme4s and probably would have had to be employed on a contract basis anyway had he worked out in this job.
