Herb also wanted o discuss common problems with Dr. Tietjen since they antici- pate that they might be drawn into the Congressional investigation on psycho- logical testing as well as the polygraph. I told Herb that I would encourage this and that I would alert Dr. Tietjen that he might receive a call from Dr. 2. John Clarke telephoned about the following items: a. He said that he has asked Mr. Kirkpatrick to take half an hour to be briefed on the Office of Communications' master plan. I said that we would welcome this but thought that we could do it in less time. b. John advised me that he plans to take a trip to Africa sometime soon and that he wants to look into I told him that he was more than welcome to do this. c. John wanted to know the status of our gymnasium/swimming pool project so that could start sounding out people on the Hill. I said that I would seek an appointment with Kirk early next week to give him a briefin on this and would suggest that he invite John Clarke and 1o be present. 3.

He went on to say that he was available twenty-four hours a day to inject himself into this if necessary and that he was determined that this ball should not be dropped. 4. I learned from Paul. Chretien this morning that Senator Edward Kennedy had received a letter from a constituent about the Joan Zola article in the National Review and that it had been sent to the Civil Service Commis- sion via buck slip. This would indicate that the Senator may not be personally aware of this case and that we are probably right to play it in low key. 5. I talked with Howard Osborn and Matt Baird separately about the case involving I asked Howard to talk with them and to to em a , w e e g d like to be as compassionate and helpful as possible, they must recognize that this is primarily their prob- lem and that we will have to reserve judgment on what we can and will do until they tell us how they propose to handle the problem. I also told Matt that I would have to reserve judgment on whether should remain with the, Agency or continue to be the Agency's At the moment I feel that he should not leave the Agency, but I have serious reservations about whether he can continue to be the Agency's . (Later I met with Howard Osborn, Dr. Tietjen, and Emmett Echols to discuss the case. We reached no decision, and I will meet with them tomorrow at 10:30 a.m.) LKW : jrf Note: Extract of paragraph 3 to D/Security on 17 February 1965.
