I stated that we would be unable to permit this, since not only would Pentagon approval have to be obtained, but also CIA was not officially represented in the meeting which produced the paper, 6. Q informed me as to his plan to have Admiral Kirk briefed on electronic warfare matters which would involve a 0 who is a membe25X1A9a of the President's Committee on Telecommunications. I approved, with the understanding that II in doing this, would not be representing CIA, 25X1A9a but would be acting in his capacity as a member of the Presidential Committee. "R.

I suggested that this should be done through who was the DCIts briefing officer on PSB matters, obtained on flying saucers, particularly reports of sightings on the ground by relatively reliable observers, He noted that one of the primary theoretical difficulties with sightings thus far reported was the lack of noise and flare. Several scientists have recently delivered papers indicating a possible means of propulsion which would not involve noise and flare, He proposed to have a briefing on this general subject and to call the information to the attention of Air Force and RUB. I concurred. 10. Discussed with I and later with Matt Baird, the Director of Training's program of lectures for incoming trainees. I indicated my general approval of the course he suggested, and that it be kept flexible. It should be arranged with ADs that incoming personnel need not take the course as soon as they come on board, where there was an emergency and immediate need for their services in the Office; further, all personnel would not require all portions of the course. I felt that this was a matter for Training to work out on an individual basis with our offices. 25X1A9a and Col. Baird indicated that they agreed with this position and would talk with the ADs, and would have a talk with me after this had been done. During the course of my discussion with Col. Baird, he discussed toe over-all activities and mission of training. I indicated that, as far as I was concerned, I felt that all matters could be resolved between Training and all our Offices. I felt that they could afford us very helpful services, but that this would have to be s the activities of the various Offices. When Col. Baird Od At rais "AA some question about O/RRts internal Office training, I pointed out the W necessity that his Office, with its.broad charter, be relatively liberal in 25X1A2g giving a license to the various ADts to accomplish results within their own Office, where that was the logical place to do the job. I did not feel that there was any magic in having a course under the'auspices of training personnel reporting to the Director of Training. I was primarily interested in results. I really feel, however, that Col. Baird understood this and will proceed along these lines. 25X1A9a informed me that additional information had been a as to a number of matters pertaining to q5 Approved For Release/0&k~.R6fA-RDP79-01041 A000100020088-7
