Acting Chief, Intelligence School SUBJECT Weekly Report of Intelligence School Activities No. 8, 20 - 26 February 1970 /S 25X1A9a 1. co-chairme4n.,of the Advanced Intelligence Seminar, have received DTR's approval of their draft schedule for AIS No. 2-70. They are contacting inside and outside guest speakers., One big fish already landed is Morton Halperin, formerly on Kissinger's t.-' staff at the White House and now with the Brookings Institution, who has agreed to speak on "Domestic Priorities and Defense." Another is Sen. Daniel K. Inouye, Democrat from Hawaii. We will take the class by bus to Capital Hill on the afternoon of Friday, 17 April. 2. Course critiques from the 70 students in the three Reading Improvement courses that concluded last week again reflect high interest 25X1A9a and personal benefit from the instruction. However, we are still planning to have of the Psychological Services Staff, make a more precise evaluation of these courses. Following our conversations with Scott Varner, USDA coordinator for our courses, we have scheduled three more Reading Improvement courses v 25X1A9a to begin on 13 April and end on 14 May -- the last planned for FY 1970 under the contract extension. Last week, - OTR coordinator for FOIAb3b1 these courses, furnished Larry Levdahl, USDA's reading instructor, with sample copies of~ and news clippings which we are urging him to introduce into t e April/May courses. 25X1A9a 3. held post-mortem discussions with the five seminar section leaders in the Cross-cultural Understanding module of the Intro- duction to Intelligence course. There was a general feeling that the film, "Meet the Critic," was not a suitable kick-off for the seminar discussions and that the panel would need more time to make an effective contribution. Hence we shall substitute either a portion of our new videotape of FSI's Jim Bostain or utilize agenda proposals from students who have experience in foreign areas analysis or have lived overseas. We also found that our title for this module is ambiguous. One seminar group discussed cross-cultural understanding as international understanding (good relations between persons or groups of different nations). We focus upon the understanding or preception one person has of persons or problems of other countries. Shifting the title to "Cross-cultural Problems" may solve the difficulty.

A meeting of with the FOIAb3d DIA representatives, , on Friday provided further details on DI WP wants and needs. Their discussion made it all the more apparent that what DIA analysts want is ways of making fuller use of Agency expertise and services. Our guess is that, with cutbacks in Agency personnel (particularly the major cutbacks in CRS personnel), the DD/I is unwilling to see a significant increase in requests for coordi- nation and forA services from DIA. We informed the DIA representatives FOIAb3d that this request is being taken under advisement by high levels in the Agency. Meanwhile, we understand that (Director of DIAAP), FOIAb3d who is the driving force behind the request, is retiring, and General - director of DIA, will be meeting soon with the DD/I. At that meeting the problem of analyst-to-analyst contacts may be discussed. We feel that an alternate way of meeting this expressed need of DIA analysts is to provide a single liaison point between them and Agency analysts, to screen out requests-which would put unnecessary loads on the Agency.

The officers were keenly interested, wantin to know where 25X1A9a they could get more information. According to escort officer, the Intelligence School at Holabird has been under continous har hssment from news media and others in recent months because of the various flaps involving the U.S. Army.
