Matt Baird telephoned to say that he had received a paper from the 2. I reviewed a number of things with ost significant of which was that he believes the Foreign Missile an pace Analysis Center must have approximately 1, 200 to 1, 500 square feet of additional space al- most immediately. He wanted to know the possibility of pre-empting one of the two Office of Training rooms in this building. I told him that I would be most reluctant to do this. (He will probably be back sometime next week with a recommendation but did feel that we must find some way to accommo - date FMSAC.) 3. I reviewed a number of things with a. I enthusiastically endorsed his recommendation to give the In- telligence Star to Messrs. the two Office of Commu- nications boys who performed so well in . In this connection, 25X1A6a the Reader's Digest wants to interview I told that I would refer to avoid this but, inasmuc as they have already 25X1 Aga interviewed I guess we can't offer any further ob- 25X1A jection. This matter has been turned over to the Office of Security and the CI Staff for handling. b. talked to me about a grade GS-9 employee named w o i S9 guilty of loose talk about the U-2 in the presence of an Air Force officer who just happened to be an Office of Scientific Intel- li ence investigator. Based upon Howard Osborn's recommendation, proposed to reprimand- and to put him on notice that any further indiscretions of any kind will call for his immediate resignation or dismissal. C. talked to me about an Office of Communications employee in who wants to bring three - boys to the United States at his expense. He wants to return on a ,-25X1 A2d Approved For Release 2000/08/27 : CIA-RDP76-00183R000500050073-6 '?~ , Approved For Release-6'00/08/27 : CIA-F 0183RQQ500050073-6 25X1 A2d 1 liner in order to accompany them. I am familiar with what 25X1 Aga has done in the way of good deeds for the Scou 25X1 A2d 1 25X1 A9a and told that I would go along with his travel 25X1 A2d 1 rather than United States liner. 4. 1 discussed several items with Alan Warfield. 25X1A6d 25X1A9a 25X1A6a 25X1A9a 25X1A 25X1A2g 25X1A 25X1A a. I asked Alan to contact the General Services Administration and then the owners of the to feel out the possibility of purchasing this land sometime in the not-too-distant future. b. I also asked Alan to get in touch with Heinz Abersfeller of GSA to see what could be worked out to replace our Mercurys with some plushed-up, air-conditioned Chevrolets or Fords. S. was in for a visit. He seemed 25X1A6a to be a fairly realistic fellow and was critical of the burdens which current accounting procedures impose on him. In addition to the accounting burden, since his accountings are sent back to Head- quarters for au t and certification. It is approximately six months before 25X1 A he hears anything from them, and in many cases he cannot remember the reasons for entertainment, etc., etc. Based upon this conversation, our correspondence fro and other thins I am convinced that we 25X1 A must do something about this burden on I have in mind one or all of the following: (a) transfer the certifying authority for _to the Area Divisions, (b) give the certifying officer the au or y o satisfy himself in whatever way he chooses on amounts up to $25 regardless of the documentation which accompanies the account, and (c) establish some- thing like a hich operates from Headquarters and actually goes to the ~~~and certifies the vouchers on the spot. Even if they get there once every three months it would be far faster service than is now provided under the current system. The advantage of all this would be that questions which are raised about a voucher could be talked over right on the spot with the person having the knowledge and in almost every instance could be settled without the present, vast amount of correspondence. This or some similar system seems essential to remove the burden from our one- man since we are likely to have more rather than ewer ura ens MR ure, want to pursue this soon and vigorously with the Office of Finance and the Audit Staff.) 25X1A9a 6. 1 learned from as decided to transfer to the Life Sciences Division o S Min lieu of the Department of State.

Alan Warfield said that he talked with about takin over the Printing Services Division in about eighteen months when 25X1 A9< retires and that George is anxious to do this. Alan therefore urged George's immediate promotion to grade GS-16, and I said that I would take the neces- sary action. LKW:Jrf Approved For Release 2000/08/27 : CIA-mff~ 00183R000500050073-6
