Attended PRC meeting. 25X1A5a1 7. Chatted with respecting his reactions on 0/SI. He made the very interesting suggestion that two or three people in NED be relieved, so far as possible, of administrative responsibilities, so as to enable them to concentrate on planning and exploitation of intelligence. This seemed to me to conform closely with the basic idea under which the Intelligence Staff had been created in O/ Q and this had been a most successful arrangement.
