(Unclassified - L.LM) In response to his call the. oL-her day, called Admiral Mathews, in the office of Repxesexztative I3ilI Chappell (D, , Fla. ), but he said no further action was needed from. the Agency as Leon Nguyen Xuan had been cleared and soon. tivould be assigned to an office in the.~narf:r-n~nt: of t-he> N~tT.L to encourage Navy personnel to sponsor Vietnamese refugees, $. (Unclassified - l.L:M) Jack Sankster, in the office of Andrew Maguire (D. , N. J. ), called. in connection with the 22 May to the Director to appear at a conference on Spain. to be held %n the I-Iouse Caucus Roam an June 10, 1975. In :response to my query, San.lcstcr 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'xzo. prior- i:elephcine invitation had been made as referred to in the letter, Sankster actually works for the Fund for New Priox?ities in America and is only in Mr; Maguire's office to support this conference, C7tlzer coazferenccs h.e has worked on include one supported by Senator Izu.ghes an Chile and one by Senator Abaurezk an Indochina. When I said th.e i:itle of the conference concentrated on foreign policy, which is out of t-hc scope of the Dir. ectorP 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 repx?esentatives of State, Defense, academia, labor and others would be there, IIe 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 sez?ved by U. S, agreements with Spain. There will be no fixed agenda or prepared statements, but the attendees at thc~ conference, whir, Ii runs all day, will spoovk~ and. listen as the spirit moves them, iy r'n- vui?-r r?tt N.F R~1`. .f~~~ ~~,~~ V ,.. ~. .- - ;~ ~.~,,.~ :~: Approved For Release 2002/01/10 :CIA-RDP77M00144R000500130010-5
