Control of Chpter I on Sweden The M airman noted that the question of control of Chapter I on Sweden had been deferred from the last meeting in order to permit the Army aeeza-r more time in which to eine the aaatter. The AaW member reported that his agency required control on the basis of several "C to on Principal. Sources." As an alterna- tive to controlling the entire Chapter be suggested that the Comments could be placed at the end of the Chapter. The Committee discussed the matter at some length and con- cluded that Chapter I on Sweden should be controlled in its entirety by "Hot Relea ble to Foreign Nationals." The Committee further held that each Chapter I should be written without regard to the control factor and t8 the Ccrostaittee would then review it for final control determination. The Committee felt that any arbitrary control policy would restrict cysts in presenting the full intelligence situation in Chapter I. 3.
