Discussed with the question of what was to be done respecting reports on the situation involving oil rights in Egypt. We agreed that the first essential was to obtain a well-organized memorandum of facts. I also desired to explore the information in the possession of Butch Fisher of State. We agreed to meet further with Mr. 25X1A9a on this question. 25X1A9a 2. Discussed with the question of a special unit to deal with some of the high-level economic information obtained from secret sources. We reached no final conclusions, but he agreed as to the desirability of a more intensive exploitation of~ financial and 25X6A insurance circles. 25X1A9a 3, Discussed with DAD/CI, the development of several situations and requested that they be appropriately covered in CIB.

Explored with any concern which he may have had regarding the survey we are making of the intelligence re- quirements quirements of the covert offices. It developed that Mr. - was not concerned as to the use of or 25X1A9a the fact of the survey, but had some views as to how it would be best to make available to the Operational Offices the fund of information available in 0/CI. I indicated that this was the only one aspect of the problem that concerned me, since I felt the needs of the Operational Offices were much broader than any that could be fulfilled by 0/CI.
