T-.1-A-L Sugg. No. 2915 Contd. "This suggestion was of interest to the CIA Library and was responsible for certain action. hMoreover,in paragraph 3 of his memo dated 17 Sept. 1957, the CIA Librarian states, The suggestor should be given minimal acknowledgement for calling this announcement to our attention.' In view of this, I believe the suggestor should be given a small award.' On 12 December 1957, an inquiry to the Agency Librarian brought the reply that he felt the suggested check of books 'in-was 25X1A routine and did not contribute or change established procedures or plans. He said such suggestions occur frequently from all levels of the Agency and the Library is always grateful for the interest as well as the proposal, whether f-'uitful or not. He explained that his remarks in paragraph 3 meant to express or acknowledge the appreciation of his office and to encourage continued interest and cooperation. This explanation was relayed to - who maintained-that 25X1 A he still believed the suggester is entitled to an award and that the Committee should vote on it. He believes that the suggestion prompted the library to take action. D. Line elf ~7n, a AUJU Not in line-of-duty. (Geographer) Reromnaenda t aka o E~~s3 v Seeeta?
