SECRET Approved For Release 11000/08/27 : CIA-RDP76-00183RQQp500050056-5 DIARY NOTES DD/S 26 January 1965 25X1A 1. At the Executive Committee Meeting this morning: a. General Carter directed the Inspector General to assume re- sponsibility for a detailed survey of NPIC to be undertaken immediately and said that he was authorized to hire outside expertise to the extent required. b. Mr. Kirkpatrick announced that Mr. has been 25X1A appointed the new Coordinator of the National Interdepartmental Seminar. He will lunch with the Director on Thursday, 4 February, and I under- took to provide recent statistics on the attendance of and participation by the various agencies in the Seminar. (I asked Matt Baird to prepare these statistics right away.) c. General Carter mentioned again his interest in the summer em- ployment program, and Mr. Kirkpatrick told him that he had received the necessary back-up papers from me and urged General Carter to raise this problem with the White House and our Congressional committees forthwith. 2. Emmett Echolswas in to discuss the following items: a. Emmett briefed me on his plans for the annual Credit Union meeting. I want to drum up some attendance for this and asked him for a few statistics which I might mention at the Executive Committee Meet- ing about a week before the Credit Union meeting in order to try to stimu- late some interest. b. Emmett talked with me briefly about our lack of attention to the provisional career status of many of our people and the failure in many instances to take prompt action to change this status. He also left a paper with me, which I said we would read and comment on. (I agree with his idea that we should revitalize this entire program.) 25X1A9a 3. was in to talk with me about the records program. He said that e can point to $13 million in tangible savings throughout the past few years and that he thinks by and large we have a good program.

One specific area which needs attention, however, is NPIC . They have neither a records officer nor a program. This obviously is an area which should receive priority attention. b. Lou also thought that the Office, of Finance records should be rescheduled. In this connection, we have apparently not yet received a reply to our letter of several months ago to the General Accounting Office asking for their agreement to certain changes in our procedures. (I should like to follow up and see what happened to this letter and to get on with rescheduling the Office of Finance records.) c. Otherwise, Lou thought that the DD/S offices were in good shape and that the DD/P offices were in fairly good shape. He felt that the Office of Central Reference in DD/I needed some attention, but is making good progress. d. Lou felt that there should be a records program for Support material in the area and in the Far East, particularly At the moment, as I understand it, they do not have any program. (I asked him to examine this situation and to give me his recommendations.) e. It was comforting to learn that Lou believes we will not have a requirement for additional records center construction in the future. The General Services Administration is going to build a four-million- cubic-foot records center in Suitland, Maryland, which will be com- pleted in the summer of 1967. Lou has arranged for 25, 000 cubic feet of space in this records center at no cost to CIA. He said that 85, 000 cubic feet of the total capacity of 103, 000 cubic feet at is now occupied. This should tide us over unt PRee 25, 000 cubic feet of space at the GSA warehouse becomes available? 4. called me about a letter which the Ambassador to Israel receive from the Israeli Government asking to be put in touch with a United States corporation which apparently manufactures communications gear which is unclassified except for the manner in which it is used. I re- ferred him to Alan Warfield to find out whether we have, in fact, done any purchasing from this company. 25X1A6d 25X1A9a 5. was up to tell me that General Carter told 25X1A9a this afternoon that no more children would be permitted to go to Saigon. The FE Division has one man, Mr with a wife and four 25X1 A9a children, who is scheduled to leave the West Coast tomorrow morning for Approved For Release 2000/08/27 : CIA-RDP76-00183R000500050056-5 EPT Approved For Release-2000/08/27 : CIA -440 6-00183RQ 0500050056-5 Saigon. They will get in touch with him this afternoon and cancel his flight. 25X1A9a This poses a new hardship for since his household goods are already en route, but it is uncertain whether t ey have left the United States. I told 25X1 A9a Lou to tell that we would put him on per diem for approximately one week, during which time we would have to decide what arrangements we wanted to and could make for a long term. I urged Lou, however, not to let this drag on and not to write too many papers about it until he has discussed with me what he wants to do and how to do it. 25X1A9a 25X1A9a 25X1A8b 7. The briefing by th the Office of Training this afternoon was presented b a. The question was raised of whether the young people being brought into the are of the same quality as those young people being brought in through the JOT Program and whether these young people should not, in fact, have the same training which a JOT receives. Matt Baird suggested that I contact Jack Farman to try to see the perti- nent remarks on this subject in the IG survey. (This I want to do.) b. One of the most critical problems of the Operations School is classroom space in the Headquarters building. Although I do not know what luck we will have, I should like to explore the possibility of improving this situation and at least to see if we cannot improve the two classrooms we already have. They are indeed rather unsuitable. 8. At the Executive Committee Meeting this morning: 25X1A2g a. Bud Wheelon said that he had prepared a movie on Project which he thought might be of interest to some of us around the table. Gen- eral Carter would like to see it, and so would I. b. General Carter told the Inspector General that he wanted him to conduct a detailed investigation on the recent "shoot-down" over since the Office of Special Activities and NPIC are poles apart as too wh o should accept the responsibility.

Mr. Kirkpatrick presided at a meeting attended by Bob Bannerman, Howard Osborn (part-time), Emmett Echols, John Tietjen, and me to review our so-called problem cases. (I made a brief record of the action decided upon for each of these cases and asked Emmett Echols to do the same. I have not yet heard from Kirk about his decision on the 25X1A9a ease.) FOIAb5 25X1A9a 11. was in to talk with me about his plans for retirement. I have made a separate Memorandum for the Record, the gist of which is that I expect him to retire on schedule but will consider a short extension if necessary.
