SECRET Approved E' Release 2006/01/03: CIA-RDP76-004$8R000500020096-4 DIARY NOTES DD/S W--f ____ 20 May 1964 1. At the Executive Committee Meeting this morning: a. The Director said that last evening Senator Russell had ex- pressed to him some reservation about our early retirement legis- lation. The Director asked General Carter to get in touch with Senator Russell to try to satisfy him that the legislation is okay. If this is not possible, we should try to make some adjustments which will meet with his approval. If either of these two things can be done, the Direc- tor thinks that we still have a chance of getting our legislation through during this session of Congress. (On 21 May John Warner reported that Senator Russell had advised him that he would be unable to meet with us until after civil rights is out of the way, which Mr. McCone estimates will be early June.) b. I reported that General Starbird had attempted to recruit Bill for his civilian Deputy Director of the Defense Communica- tions Agency but that Bill was not interested and so we have no prob- lem.

I lunched with Admiral Bryan and General Kingsley, who were at- tending Project USEFUL. They said that they thought this exercise was very worthwhile but urged the use of more simple organization charts and a better explanation of the briefings which officials of the Agency give the President and the actions which are taken following these briefings. 6. Walt Elder telephoned to say that I would receive a paper on em- ployment of ex-Peace Corps employees. The Director's attitude on this has not changed, and he wants to write a reply to the White House. 7. I met with General Carter, Mr. Kirkpatrick, Bob Bannerman, and John Warner to talk about the problems confronting us in connection with appearance before the Moss subcommittee to talk about the polygraph. General Carter was pretty relaxed about this, agreed that we should appear, and had no objection to our making an attempt to substitute a statement for a question-and-answer transcript. If Mr. Moss does not agree, however, General Carter thought that we should answer the subcommittee's questions with the understanding that we will have a chance to edit the transcript to delete any classified information. (At the Executive Committee Meeting on 21 May the Director confirmed this position, and I have so advised Bob Bannerman.) N 8. 1 talked with d Howard Osborn about the problem and requested that Howard start a thorough investiga- tion immediately in cooperation with the auditors who are working on the accounts.
