I telephoned I land asked him to expedite any exceptions which they intended to request in connection with the audit report on Project0 I hope to clear these out while General Cabell is still here. 25X1A2G 2.1 called to talk about plans for changes in our Reserve Officers' Program. I told him that I thought they were moving in the right direction but that we must have Agency policy approved and also formal approval must be received from the Department of Defense prior to implementation. As a result of this information, he said that he might try to speed up the briefings which they had planned to give on or about 1 May. 3. Jim Garrison reported that Messrs. VanVrankle and Wadsworth from the Pub- lic Buildings Service met with Slater Davidson yesterday to re-emphasize to him that he was lagging still further behind at the building and to tell him that PBS expected him to live up to his commitments, even if it were necessary for him to spend money to do it. The money, of course, would be that of Tompkins-Jones; they also have sent Davidson a tele- gram today confirming this. We probably will not have their specific recommendation about moving until Monday, 22 January. We anticipate, however, they they will say that the North half of the building will be in approximately the same condition on 5 February as the South half was when we started our move on 19 November. I told Jim that under 25X1 these circumstances we should plan to move on 5 February as now scheduled. 25X1A9A 6. informed me that that section of the cafeteria scheduled to open on 5 February would not be ready when the contractor said that it would be. It now is sup- posed to be ready for turnover on the twenty-fourth of January which may mean that it cannot open for business until around 10 February.

Bob Macy telephoned to say that he was leaving the Bureau of the Budget on a permanent change of assignment to become the Chief of Mission for the AID Program in Iran. Everything has been formalized, except White House approval which Bob anticipated would be forthcoming. He plans to depart fairly soon, although his replacement has not yet been named. He was anxious to get together with me, and I agreed to do this sometime next week. 8. Larry Houston telephoned to say that he was working on the TSD consultant problem and thought that with the exception of I we might not have any con- flict-of-interest problem. However, he would like to have further conversations with the Department of justice and therefore would not be ready to discuss this by next Tuesday. 9. Larry said that the proposed Notice to the Deputy Directors on Advisory Com- mittees has been drafted and should reach me shortly. He also said that he had a chance to mention to Mr. McCone that he had prepared the "general delegation of authority to the Deputy Director. " Mr. McCone told him to hold up on this for the moment; apparently, he is having some second thoughts as to just how far he wants to go. 10. Larry reported that at the Director's Confirmation Hearing yesterday, he felt that we received almost a mandate to appoint a military Deputy Director. Both Senators Russell and Bush indicated that although the law did not read this way they believed that was the intent of Congress. 25X1A9A 11. Larry also reported that he had been working I on the fair employment practices problem and that we might well have difficulty in this area. I believe that this grows out of the unusual functions of the Agency which really do require us to dis- criminate in some areas; i.e., we wouldn't send an Arab to Israel, a Jew to Iran, etc. 12. John Tietjen telephoned to say that his recent examination of Shef Edwards in- dicated that he was in pretty good shape. He said that Shef was not free from physical im- perfection, and I think that he anticipates that Shef will have serious trouble at some indefi- nite time in the future. However, at the moment he would advise that Shef not go into any period of inactivity. I take it that this is John's way of saying that insofar as he is concerned it probably would be good for Shef to remain on duty rather than retire in June, unless he were going to have! of b immediately which would keep him active. 25X1A9A 13. telephoned to say that had appealed his separa- tion under our procedures and in so doing had made two charges against me: (a) He alleged that when I met with the Management Staff to announce that it would be eliminated -2- Approved For Release 2006/01/03: CIA-RDP76-00183R000400010101-9 Approved For Release 2006/01/03: CIA 76-00183R000400010101-9 on 1 June I had said that one Management analyst, then on LWOP, would be given the same 25X1A9A notice as other Management analysts, except that the official date of his notice would run 25X1A9A from his return to duty; (After checking with who, in turn, checked with 25X1A9A I I as to whether I made any suc remark, I informed Dave that this was false.) (b) He alleged that I violated his confidence by telling what he had said 25X1A9A about him when I conducted an investigation of certain charges made by two or three years ago. (I have advised Dave that this was entirely false also.) 15. I talked to Emmett Echols about the recent audit report which showed a shortage 25X1A9A of $309 in the Benefits and Casualties Branch. The audit report indicated great laxness on the handling of funds and I see no alternative but to require to repay this 25X1A9A amount. I told Emmett, however, that supervisors also had a responsi- bility in tolerating these practices and it might be desirable to work out some system of re- payment wherein they shared the cost.
