I proposed to the Director that I consult with either the Assistant Secretary of State for Administration, Mr. William Crockett, or the Dep- uty Under Secretary of State, Mr. Roger Jones, before we wrote to the Secretary of State about our communications problem. The Director ap- proved. In trying to telephone Mr. Crockett, I learned that he would be away until 5 July, but I hope to get in touch with him shortly thereafter. b. There was a great deal of discussion in preparation for the Direc- tor's appearance before the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board next Sunday, 2 July. (At this point, 28 June, DD/S contributions have all been made to Mr. Kirkpatrick.) 25X1A9a 2. 1 met with Shef Edwards, 25X1 A9a from the Office of Security, and Jim arrison, from the Office of Logistics to discuss the servicing and maintenance of the pneumatic tube and conveyer systems in the new building. The question to be resolved was whether employees providing this service and maintenance should be on CIA rolls,, PBS rolls, or whether the work should be performed by a service contract with a private company. Discussion brought out the fact that at various posts throughout the building there will have to be personnel onitoring this system and that stjch nets el could either read take ~ u~'~~~+, (*~,er M ,,.c,. *a an carry away. I de or cic~ec~i personnel in this position should be on Agency rolls and fully cleared in accordance with our normal procedures. Having made this decision, I also expressed my belief that such personnel could, in addition to monitoring, do a great deal of the routine or first echelon servicing and maintenance of the system and that they should be so trained. However, we must anticipate that there will be breakdowns requiring the use of some service company and we should have such a contract; we should recognize that since the pneumatic tube and conveyer systems in their entireties are secure areas, it will probably be necessary to shut down the system for brief temporary periods to satisfy this condition. 3. Matt Baird was up to express some concern about the developments for mari- 25X1 A6a time training On the one hand he says that the Covert Action Staff is buying a great deal of equipment and informally requesting that we add quite a number to the Staff there, but at the same time OTR has had ecific requirements levied on it. 25X1 A9a At Matt's suggestion I called- reminded him that we were not budgeted for this activity during Fiscal Year 1962, and urged that the DD/P levy specific requirements as soon as possible so that we may meet them in an orderly and timely fashion and at the same time provide the necessary funds and people.

At the Deputies' Meeting this morning: a. The Director emphasized to 0 that he wanted to get the financial aspects of the straightened out as soon as possible. Tracy undertook to iscuss t is with and to report back to the Director. b. The Director returned to a memorandum in which I had concurred h ' do with the settlement of our contractual obliga- tions with the he Director said that he wanted us to consider the possibility of arbitration I discussed this with Larry Houston and asked him to discuss our strong opposition to this with Tracy. (On 27 June Jim Garrison reported to me that the meeting which was attended by ad been closed out strictly in accordance with the original contract. The door was left open orally, however, ins to appeal to us again if, in fact, he feels that he is justified in doing so.)
