Planning and Development 1. To increase the utility of the NIS, the NIS Committee has approved procedures whereby classification/control designations will be applied individually to specific subsections within each element of the NIS. The new procedures will serve to indicate the level of protection required for each major internal component and to identify those portions that are unclassified. 2. The treatment of sub-Saharan tribal names to be used 25X1A9a in NIS was discussed at a meeting at the Ragazine Building on 7 September. Present for the discussion were Mr. William Berry, 25X1A9a Department of State; Mr. Robert Parkinson Bureau of the Census; 25X1A9a and the following member GD, and of ED. 25X1A9a CD, 3. Responsibility for processing Section 45 (Health and Sanitation), has been transferred from the Socioeconomic Branch to Military Branch. Health and Sanitation sections are to be produced entirely by DIA henceforth. C. Problems The three General Surveys forwarded in September were all quite late, two because of greatly delayed submissions, the third because of field delay in commenting. The later was Hong Kong and Macao, on which the consulate in Hong Kong asked for an additional 2 month's time to determine the background to and results of the violence in the colony. A very late Section 5 held up Iraq for several months, but in so doing it permitted the insertion of preliminary reporting on the effects of the Arab-Israeli war in June. Congo (Kinshasa) had problems that the involved late submission, a delay on the Summary map proof printer because of his move to Langley, and the need to update some of the material because of events that had taken place in the country. D. Miscellaneous was detached during the month ED/S 25X1A9 , a 1. to assume his new duties as Special Assistant to the Director/OBGI. had been serving as General Survey coordinator for Europe and the Soviet Bloc and alternate branch chief.
