Attach addItl.nal skeet if awry Space I. needed. The paint made in this suggestion is really tt>,ofel&D The suggest-or's first question deals with our proper use of open sources. We resogriise that there is a constant dangsr of applying undue value to classified sources. Therefore, the suggestion of parallel groups strikes at a reel problem and is constructive. 8owever, we do not believe there is any subject on which it would be more than an academic exercilse, Moreover, any separate group working on open sources would have to ease from people who do not see, and have not for acme time seen the classified sources. Hence, it would be almost impossible to conduct a valid experiment. In short, vs daft see that it would be worth it, The second question is essentially one of US information practioes, and is Quite different from the first. In the stnnter of 1951, this office conducted an experiment along the suggested lines by having a group at Tale University prepare an estimate of Certain critical e1o*tents of US strength. The eaperiatent was never coWletely evaluated but did indicate - as might have been eugpectad that a remarkably detailed picture could be attained. We do not believe that it would be desirable or necessary to repeat the eigeriment, Obviously, ?..!,e Soviets could do much better from open sources concerning the US than we can on the USSR, 13 Feb 57 CeITIas?S sa ATTACags Soggy _ 11TWOuaiTZ~iit~YfB illyielA - aas..M71 ZITITj Deputy Assistant Director, Nat.

A parking space at Gate 15 now marked for "Visitors or Government cars" is seldom used and suggester feels he could park his car in this space with no inconvenience to anyone. He felt that he could save the Government at`least $100 per month by his proposal. The Office of DD/P on 12 February 1957 stated the following: "If all of DD/P operational offices were granted a parking space who are required to use taxi or Government owned automobiles for operational trips to State or up town, we would be required to make the total space now available for use of those only.
