At morning meeting stated that we were prepared to furnish the incoming Secretary of State with the standard issue of daily materials at his Commodore office.

Conferred seriatim with Wisner 25X1A2g on Project Much somewhat unco-ordinated staff study has gone on throughout the Agency as a result of the ill-advised low level contacts made by Air Force Colonel Leghorn. In my opinion after consulting with all concerned and also Wisner, the time has come to present this thing formally to the IAC and to recommend that the latter appoint an ad hoc committee to present the intelli- gence viewpoint with respect to this huge development program. Composition of a committee could well be the Chairmen, respectively, of the EIC, SEC, Watch Com- mittee, and IPC. That would produce representation of the Services, DD/P and the DD/I, with an approximative reasonable balance between them. For the moment, it is. left with me to call Colonel Shriver and then General Samford to find out what, if any, intra-Air Force politics were involved in the relative exclusion of A-2 from the Project so far. Assuming that there is no objection, I shall then re- commend to MI that the matter be noticed for the next IAC Meeting and that General Craigie be informed accordingly. Leghorn, unfortunately, is away on leave until 5 January. 25X1 130a his document Is part of an Integrated file, if separated from the file it must 131 a; subjected to individual systematic review.

Rear Admiral Lalor, tecretary, Joint Chiefs of Staff, advised Acting DD/I, "off the record," that the Joint Chiefs had considered our Summary Evalu- ation paper shortly following our joint conference and that General Bradley would call the Director to suggest a further conference at which details could be ironed out and personalities considered for the Steering Committee. Meanwhile, Lalor was of the opinion that co-ordination with IIC and ICIS should be deferred. From the tone of his comments, it may be inferred that the Chiefs had favorably considered our general proposals. 25X1A9a 25X1A2 10. Lunched with who stated that the the effects of continuation of the anti-trust proceedings agains on estimating he oil companies was going badly for lack of data.
