Mr. Hedden gave me his views on the Scientific and Technical Ad Hoc Committee Report as follows: a. Some question was raised as to the status of JAEIO, but I pointed out that this Committee was being continued and Mr. Hedden was satisfied on this point. b. Mr. Hedden raised a question as to whether we should refer to Chapter 7 of the NIS. He preferred to have the Chapter described and I agreed. c. Mr. Hedden raised a question as to whether SEC could stimulate working level conferences, if it were to meet only as required for NIE contributions. I assured him that NIE requirements were sufficiently frequent to make this workable, and also indicated that stimulation of working-level conferences could be accomplished without actual meetings of SEC, - for example, at the request of a member through the Secretariat. Mr. Hedden and I were in agreement that the success of this effort would depend upon whether the military services fulfilled adequately the respon- sibilities that they were undertaking. If they did not do so, as disclosed by a subsequent survey, serious consideration would have to be given to making scientific and technical intelligence a real service of common concern. 10.
