Approved FoAft mg,2Q7 2 ~ CI 1R Jq@,0 00080008-7 ,. July 5, 1974 MEMORANDUM FOR: Acting Deputy Director for Intelligence SUBJECT : Chile Seminar I am happy to re ort that the Chile Seminar held at I I on July 1-2 was an unqualified success. The in orma atmosphere I I as well as the selection of participants helped immeasurably in this regard. The outline developed by I I provided the vehicle for the formal sessions, although the discussions were wideranging. This was particularly true during the breaks when conversations on Chile continued. Our dis- tinguished guest, I and now Deputy Chief, Division, DDO), was asked to review the milieu under which the military undertook the ouster of President Allende last September. His participation throughout the seminar was outstanding. A few other participants, although not intimately familiar with Chile, did join in the discussions so that everyone participated. I made it a point to go around the table as we progressed down the agenda. I was grate- ful for the participation of two OER analysts who brought experience, good sense and a degree of articulateness, which is so necessary to understand economic problems. Notwithstanding the formal discussions, the real value to the participants in this seminar was the friend- ship they evolved with their counterparts in the Agency. We all developed an appreciation for each other's ideas and the value of an interchange of this nature. At the end of the session several persons underscored their gratitude for having been invited. told a colleague that it would be a good idea to meet again in a year's time to review Chile again. I heartily recommend that more of these seminars be held.
