Saunders) and CIA officers (Amory, Chadwell, Andrews 25X1A9a and Reber) respecting CIA contacts with the various Technical Services. Thereafter, it will be satisfactory if direct contact is made with people in the Services, so long as advance notice (which may be short and may be by phone) is given to someone to be designated by Whipple and Saunders. Dr. Andrews (Liaison Division) is also to be kept advised of such contacts so that his Division will have a consolidated listing. The representatives of G-2 displayed a complete willingness to cooperate, so long as CIA com- plied with certain minimum formalities. It was agreed that this arrange- ment would not be reduced to writing. 8. Discussed with Messrs. the question 25X1A9a of OB reporting which was raised by a recent article on the different composition of Russian and Chinese air divisions and regiments. This problem had been avoided on ground OB by reporting in terms of manpower, rather than organizational units. This had not been done in the case of Air, as a result of which our reports could be misleading to consumers. Hendrickson is going to study this problem and then submit appropriately- revised recent 0/CI reports to indicate what might be done.
