Preparing for Overseas Assignment (POA) was conducted on 9 and 10 May in the Headquarters Building. The third day, lectures on Department of State's missions and functions, was conducted at the Chamber of Commerce Building. 2. Based on student evaluations, the stated objectives were achieved reasonably well. On a scale of 1 (slight) to 7 (highly satisfactory), they assigned an average rating of 4.41. Approximately 50 percent of the class has served overseas with the Agency, and they were happy to offer suggestions to their classmates. Many of the wives, and in particular a wife of Japanese origin, shared experiences that had enabled them to adapt quickly to living in a new culture. The reason that so many veteran travelers were enrolled in this class was because Training Officers mis- takenly believed persons required to take the mandatory Drug Abuse Seminar had to be enrolled in POA of which the Seminar is a part. Class Evaluations and Recommendations 3. The segments on "Legal Responsibilities" by 25X1 and "Living in a New Culture" by 25X1 received the highest praise. The small group sessions with the respective support officers were not as successful as in the April class. These area division representatives will be asked to give more specific information on each station in future runnings.
