Williamson said this would he basic education for the Senator who has been }riven the chairmanship of the Africa Subcommittee of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Hearings before the Subcomnriittee are planned in late June to cover the countries of South Africa, Rhodesia, Mozambique and Angola. Paul Walsh, ADI)I, has been alerted and he will identify the briefers. b. Talked to Ms. Cooper, of the Subcommittee on Government Information and Privacy, House Government Operations Committee, who wanted a listing of the membership of the CIA oversight/ investigating committees, which was provided. 7. In response to his call the other day, called Admiral Mathews, in the office of Representative: Bill Chappell (D. , Fla. ), but he said no further action was needed from the Agency as had been. cleared and soon would be assigned to an. office in the Department of the Navy to encourage Navy personnel to sponsor Vietnamese refugees. 8. Jack Sankster, in the office of Andrew Maguire (D. , N. J. ), called in connection with the 22 May invitation to the Director to appear at a conference o . Hain to be held in the House Caucus Room on June 10, 1975. In response to my query, Sankster said much of the preliminary work had been handled by volunteers, and indeed, as has been found out to be the case in other invitations, perhaps"no, prior telephone invitation had been made as referred to in the letter. Sankster actually works for the Fund for New Priorities in America and is only in Mr. Maguire's office to support this conference. Other conferences he has worked on include one supported by Senator Hughes on Chile and one by Senator Abourezk on Indochina. When I said the title of the conference concentrated on foreign policy, which is out of the scope of the Director's and the Agency's charter, Sankster minimized that possibility and said it was just an informal discussion among a wide range of disciplines and that: members of Congress are attending and they hope that representatives of State, Defense, academia, labor and others would be there. He also said that Senator Fulbright and Colonel Edward King would be there. From his other statements, the conference appears to be whether any U. S. interests are being served by U. S. agreements with Spain. There will be no fixed: agenda or prepared statements, but the attendees at the conference, which runs all day, will seak and listen as the spirit moves them'.
