Dwight Porter, Assistant Secretary of State for Administration, telephoned to discuss the following items a. He said that he understood we had recruited more communica- tors than we could use and that ould like to hire those we can't bring on board for the Department of State. I told him that I approved of this wholeheartedly, not only because it would help them but also because we don't like to turn down any fully-qualified young man after we have him all cranked up to enter on duty. b. Dwight also said that he will leave his position within a week or two to prepare himself for his new assignment as Ambassador to Lebanon. Ambassador Meyer, who is now in Beirut, will replace Julius Holmes, the retiring Ambassador to Iran. Tom Beale will take over from Dwight as Acting Assistant Secretary for Administration. At the moment Bill Crockett is not going anywhere and does not wish to appoint a permanent replacement for Dwight until he has decided whether or not to make any organizational changes. Dwight will be at the Headquarters building for some briefings prior to his departure and promised to get in touch with me at that time so that we can have lunch together. 3. John Clarke talked with me about his concern over our use of the Director's authority to spend even more money than is in the Agency's budget. (This has been bothering Larry Houston and others for some time.) I agreed that he should ask Mr. Kirkpatrick to set up a small task force composed of a representative from the Offices of Finance, BPAM, and the General Counsel to look into this problem and come up with specific recom- mendations.

Since Jack Earman is surveying the 25X1A 25X1A 25X1A5a1 25X1A5a1 25X1A8b asked him to give some consideration to the question of whether =should 25X1A8b rotate some Office of Trainin araili ple into their system and whether the young PM types are of JOT caliber. If not, 25X1A8b why not; and if so, why shou t t ey be recruited through the JOT Program? Jack was very interested in this and said that he would certainly explore it. 6. At the Executive Committee Jigg=g this morning Dick Helms said that he had received a call fro n Saturday, 13 February, about who is apparently a hot-shot in the field of manufacturing proper guidance since the Office of Communications and the Technical Services Division are both good customers for the kind of equipment which he handles. General Carter told Larry Houston to get right on top of the situation and to make sure that we handle the case well. 7. I briefed Mr. Kirkpatrick on my recent talk with Matt Baird about his retirement plans. Kirk appeared to be completely unenthusiastic about making the Chairmanship of the Training Selection Board a full-time job. In any case, he promised to fill me in after he and Matt return from their trip to Princeton. as been called to testify before Senator Long's ongressional c ee, and sked us to give he 8. I talked with Dr. Tietjen, Larry Houston, and Paul Chretien about 25X1A9a Review un panning our testing procedures. These discussions were prompted by Paul's memorandum about an inquiry he re- ceived from the Civil Service Commission, which had been asked by Senator Edward Kennedy to evaluate these testing procedures. We agreed that Paul should ask the Civil Service Commission to tell Senator Kennedy that this young lady was an applicant for a position in this Agency but that, since they have no jurisdiction over the Agency, they cannot evaluate our testing pro- cedures. We should not volunteer to brief Senator Kennedy but will be pre- pared to do so if he requests further information from us. 25X1A5a1 Approved For Release 2000/08/27 R P76-001838000500050019-6 25X1A .
