A number of senior Public Relations Officers of the Government met in Pierre Salinger's office at 4:30 PM yesterday at his request. Salinger announced the purpose of the meeting was to assess the coordination of information and to remind all present of the policies controlling public statements by Presidential appointees and also by other Government officials wherein the public statement, whether written or oral, concerns another Government department, a foreign country, or a foreign individual. Salinger stressed that this meeting was to remind those present of current policies and that it was not something new. He asked that none present discuss outside their offices the purpose of the meeting, and that no one create the impression that a new "hard policy" is being instituted by the President. 2. Salinger invited attention to a policy statement signed by Frederick G. Dutton, dated 28 February 1961. This prescribes that public statements of Presidential appointees with major policy decisions or signifi- cant news statements should be forwarded to the White House as early as possible and no later than 4+8 hours in advance of release. It was suggested that any policy indications in the statement, for the benefit of White House readings, might be underscored in red, or marginal marks might indicate the significant policy proposals or whatever features might get prime treatment in the Press. This same policy statement provides that all speeches should bring the President's personal interest in the problem or subject to the attention of the immediate audience in a vigorous manner, and that all texts should seek !' r Approved For Release 2002/10/ ,AA,- DP80B0l6 6f q~01a' ll1 28-2 ~:si Y6].td~y-~4'y daL~11J5sar~_ ~1{.~ ry Approved For ReleaV 2002/10/22 : 8090B01676R0001D0100028-2 public support of the Administration's policies. In the CIA, for example, this policy would apply only to the Director and the Deputy Director. Such proposed public statements ought to be sent to Mr. Reardon, Secretary of the Cabinet, who is charged with seeing that the proper people in the White House have knowledge of them. 3. For all other Government officials: Whenever a public statement, special article or other, affects another U.S. Government department or touches on foreign policy or on a foreign government or foreign individuals, such statements will be submitted as early as possible, and in no case later than 48 hours before date of public issuance to the Office of the Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs. 4. Addressing Ed Guthman, Special. Assistant for Public Information, Department of Justice, Mr. Salinger said. that Justice had released a statement which the White House had told them not to release. Guthman explained that they had submitted it and there had been a misunderstanding which caused the error. Salinger also referred to a statement attributed in Atlantic City to Ewan Clague, Department of Labor, Commissioner of Statistics, wherein he forecast the possibility of a recession in 1963. Secretary Goldberg, Salinger said, had talked to Mr. Clague, and Mr. Clague explained that he had been misunderstood and. he, Clague, would issue another statement to the Press, clarify- ing his earlier statement. Goldberg also will issue a statement saying he does not agree with the statement Clague had made. 5. The White House wants to be informed of any newsworthy activity of senior Government officials, and asks that a phone call be made to Salinger or to Andy Hatcher or to Malcolm Kilduff to keep them informed of any writing or talks or other newsworthy activity senior officials may be engaged in. It is left to the judgment of the PRO's to determine when they should make such reports to the White House.
