Such courses now number over 20, most of which are to be found in the 12-month schedule below. A limited number of additional courses will be considered upon a demonstration of actual need. Suggestions or problems may be taken up with Chief.. 25X1A9a Nestern Staff, and Co-ordinator, Area Training Program, Language and Area School, extension 443T. Program sessions of unusual interest in the past 12 months have featured the following non Agency area specialists: Dr. Dale Stewart, Curator of Physical Anthropology, Smithsonian Inst. Dr o Louis Morton, Historian, Historical Section, Army Dr, Kenneth Landon, Operations Coordination Board State eanor 'Dulles, Specialist on Berlin, Office of German Affairs, Dr. Fritz Kraemer, Deputy Chief of the Public Affairs Division, Office of Chief of Staff, Army Mfr.

Division, ICA Six types of offerings are now included in this program in order to meet widely differing needs: The Basic Country Survex, running 60 to 70 hours, six to seven hours a week for ten weeks, provides considerable depth and breadth of information on a single important country, or grouping of small countries. Historical and current aspects of social and political organization, economic trends, culture, popular ideologies and attitudes, and international relations are examined in the light of the Agency mission. The Regional Survey,, generally requiring an equal number of class hours, emphasizes major intelligence ;probllms of a world region. It is intended for those who already have considerable academic training or job experience concerning the region.

Such materials are generally concerned with the principal country where the language is spoken (i.e., the USSR, Japan, or Germany), but may also encompass neighboring areas of strategic importance, Emphasis is on developing a competence to report and discuss in the foreign language the characteristics and problems of the area. Students attend certain lectures held in simultaneous offerings of the appropriate basic Country Survey or Regional Survey and later discuss with the speakers concerned certain aspects of these lectures in the foreign language. The Lecture Series is a program for presenting 10 or 12 weekly lectures on strategically important aspects of a world region. These series are concerned with regions which either hold outstanding current interest for the intelligence profession or are not covered by the periodic survey courses. The lectures by top specialists on the subjects concerned are followed by ample question periods. The Current Problems Survey is a seminar designed to sharpen appreciation, by intermediate and senior level personnel, of the area-related elements involved in selected intelligence problems focussing on a given foreign country or region. Emphasis is on developing competence to discuss these problems both orally and in written papers, with some freedom permitted to select topics of direct interest in the student's particular work assignment. The Americans Abroad courses, running approximately 15 hours, are indoctrination o a practical nature on a country or region for those expecting to go there for the first time in the near future. Employees and their dependents are prepared for a smooth personal adjustment to living and working in the area. Emphasis is on personal problems in respect to "processing out", security, law, and health, and attention is focused, as well, on significant features of the particular country of destination, such as geography, history, strategic importance to the U.S., social customs, attitudes, and sensitivities. 7 Approved For Release 2001/07/16 : CIA-RDP78-03921A000200150001-9 Approved For Release 2001/07/16 : CIA-RDP78-03921A000200150001-9 S-E-C-R--E-T AREA TRAINING - LONG-TERM SCHEDULE April 1957 through March 1958 The following schedule of AREA (INTERNAL) COURSES amends and extends the schedule given in your OTR CATALCO OF COURSES, Long-term Schedules (fold-outs) section.

Information regarding the series may be obtained by callir to arrange with your supervisor for authorization prior to attendance at any one of the lectures. Recognizing the need for increased knowledge in the language and area fields, the office ofTraining is offering this series of lectures to be given in the major languages of the world by CIA personnel. Topics of particular interest, both to analysts and personnel in operations, have been selected. The purpose is twofold: To advance your knowledge of foreign languages; to increase your insight into the understanding of foreign peoples - their patterns of thought and behavior. A special feature of the program is the amount of attention devoted to the theme "Understanding and Dealing With Foreign Peoples." Individual lecturers will speak on how to understand and deal with the Russians, the Japanese, the Latin Americans, etc. In this way, much of the "know-how" gained by our personnel through years of experience will be transmitted to you. As a result, it is hoped that in your contacts with the different nationalities, both here and abroad, you will be able to establish more effective rapport and attaiLn better results. Summaries of the lectures, in English, will be provided in the "Understanding and Dealing With Foreign People" talks, and also in a few other instances. The lecture in Arabic, due to the very limited number of Agency personnel able to understand this language, will be given in English with a brief summary following in Arabic.

Pforzheimer, Special Assistant to the DD/I) A little over a year ago, the Director of Central Intelligence expressed a desire that CIA should develop the best intelligence library in the world, to cover the subject of intelligence in its broadest meaning, in all languages and on all countries. As a result, the Historical Intelligence Collection (HIC) was established under the DD/I, headed by a Special Assistant to the DD/I. At the present time, HIC consists largely of books on the subject of intelligence; to a lesser extent, magazine articles in the field are also being included, but, as time goes on, more and more of the periodical litera- ture will be brought into the Collection. Some classified material on subjects of interest to the Collection, particularly in the form of manuals, is also being added, although the full. extent of the inclusion of classified material has not yet been determined. The books on the subject of intelligence which were in the CIA Library have been brought together in HIC, and a vigorous purchasing policy has been adopted. At the present time, the Collection is apvroaching 4,000 volumes in size. HIC is located in 1348 M Building (ext. 2970), and all are welcome to come in, browse, and borrow the books. It should be emphasized that HIC is a collection on the sub ect of intel- ligence and not on the product of intelligence. Its scope includes such things as military, strategic, and national intelligence, as well as espionage, counter espionage, unconventional warfare in all of its aspects--including guerrillas, resistance movements, partisans, special forces, escape and evasion, subversion, clandestine press--and such other subjects as economic and psychological warfare, prisoners of war, cryptography, loyalty and security, and various elements of intelligence trade craft. As far as we can determine, nowhere else in the world is there a collection of similar size and scope. What are the purposes which lie behind the Director's establishment of the Historical Intelligence Collection? In the first place, there is the question of precedents. No matter what the profession, one can always build upon the experiences of the past. For instance, there are still only three basic ways to escape from a prisoner of war camp--over the wall, under the wall, or through the wall. The rest is a matter of careful organization and individual ingenuity. The many books on this subject in HIC show much concerning the ingenuity of those who escaped. Such things as the documented hoax, so skillfully narrated in The Man Who Never Ws.s, are only further refinements of similar operations in World War I and before. HIC also has some interesting early books on the sub- stantive side of intelligence. 38 Approved For Release 2001/07/16 : CIA-RDP78-03921A000200150001-9 Approved For Release 2001/07/16 : CIA-RDP78-03921A000200150001-9 S-E-C-R--E-T In addition to the precedents which can be gleaned from this Collection, it was established in part to study the traditions of the intelligence pro- fession--a profession which ranks with the oldest in the world. Its traditions should be as real to us as are the traditions of the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corns to the members of those services. In America the tradition goes back to the Revolution, for certainly no commander was ever more conscious of intelligence or relied on it more heavily than General Washington. His awareness of it was summed t.p in a letter he wrote to one of his officers: "The necessity of procuring good intelligence is apparent and need not be further urged--All that remains for me to add is, that you keep the whole matter as secret as possible, . . ,'1 In addition to the precedents which can be culled from this Collection and the traditions which it represents, HIC will serve as a training tool. If the facts, somewhat beclouded in history, regarding the capture of Major Andre and Nathan Hale can be relied on, one can only reach the conclusion that if either of them had stopped to think for even a minute or second, neither of them would have been caught, and the literature of intelligence would have been the poorer. But their momentary lapses are as timely for training purposes today as similar aberrations in World War II or thereafter. As time goes on, it is hoped that its very completeness will commend HIC to the training of intelligence personnel. To be sure, new scientific advances refine many aspects of intelligence, but no profession--whether it be law, or medicine, or science, ,or intelligence--can afford to overlook the basic lessons of the past and the foundations on which the profession is built. Nor does HIC relegate itself only to antiquity--the past is only yesterday, and tomorrow's books are already on order. 39 Approved For Release 2001/07/16 : CIA-RDP78-03921A000200150001-9 Approved For Release 2001/07/16 : CIA-RD 78_i3T21A000200150001-9 LANGUAGE 1EVELOPNENT PROGRAM 25X1 A9a (by Chairman, Committee on Language Development) 25X1 A 1A "Language Development Program," dated 4 February 1957, is a personal message from the Director of Central Intelligence to every employee of the Agency.

Satisfactory completion of beginning courses will qualify the student at the elementary level of comprehen- sive proficiency in the language. Consequently, the duration of any beginning course will vary in accordance with the difficulty of the language concerned. Beginning courses in the easier languages will consist of four 16-week semesters. The duration of advanced courses 1A will vary dependent upon the level of proficiency the student possesses when he enters the course.
