George Carey of the Office of Operations telephoned to say that he understood that the Director had approved of a new plan for keeping up activities and that the Office of Operations was to get $150,000 to carry out its part o t e program. He requested an allotment number against which he could start charging his expenses. Ed Saunders investigated and found that while the Director had approved of an operational plan the WHIJivision has not yet put a price tag on it; the Division was in the process of doing this and the Office of Operations would come in for additional funds. I advised. George of this and told him to charge his expenses against his regular allotment pending the availability of new funds. 25X1A9A 2. telephoned and later came down to talk with me about the seventh floor dining room. has recommended that we continue NO to operate the mess as is, using only half of the space now provided for the Executive Dining Room. However, ought that we should turn over the whole thing to General Services, Incorporated. said that he was satisfied that this would not be practical unless we were going to charge $1.50 or $2.00 per meal. I suggested to him that since GSI had its hands full in trying to take over the cafeteria on the ground floor perhaps they had better operate the dining room as is, at least until GSI had the cafeteria running well. I made it clear that the operation of this mess was their responsibility and that the decision as to how they ran it was theirs. 3. Emmett Echols advised me that the President's Executive Order on Labor Man- agement Relations specifically exempted the FBI and CIA. Mr. Hoover of the FBI, apparently, demanded that the FBI be exempted, and the Bureau of the Budget included CIA on its own initiative. ]was in to see me about several items: a. He delivered an unsigned audit report on Project MKULTRA, in. which he recommended, among other things, that this Project be resub- mitted for new approval inasmuch as he believed its current activities were quite different from those envisaged at the time of the Director's approval in 1953. However, he was not anxious to raise any more prob- lems unnecessarily which might indicate that we did not have adequate control over our funds and thought that we could devise procedures to patch up present deficiencies if that was what was wanted. I told him that I would study his report and be in touch with him. Approved For Release 2006/01/0 CIA DP76-00183R000400010103-7 Approved For Release 2006/01/03 : CIA-RDP76-00183R00.0,400010103-7 b.

She said that while the elimination of the Management Staff had been rough on a number of people she agreed that the decision to abolish it was proper from the Agency's point of view. 6. Walt Elder telephoned to say that General Cabell was referring Mr. Bissell's paper on "early retirement" to the Career Council. `J"' 25X1A6A 8.

Les will, of course, send me a copy of the report that he makes to Gordon. 9. I had lunch with Emmett Echols at which time I suggested that his communica- tions with left something to be desired. I suggested that he hold regular periodic meetings with them to ensure that there was a clear understanding as to what they were supposed to be working on, what direction they were going, etc. I also mentioned to him the Director's desire to consider the possibility of having a CIA League or an Alumni Association and told him that I would like to discuss this with him after he had an opportunitylo study memorandum on this subject.
