Approvedr Release 2 05/11/ 3 : RAX 4A001800010034-0 10 February 1967 Morning Meeting of 10 February 1967 DD/I discussed possible problems resulting from a call to the Director from last night. No further action was neces- sary. DD/I noted a CINCPAC message concerning an increase in water transport from North to South in Vietnam. The Director asked that this be continuously watched and carefully analyzed. DD/I called attention to a Soviet statement in the New York Times reflecting concern over the maintenance of the rail links to North Vietnam. All major military equipment from the USSR to North Vietnam is moved by this mode of transport. DD/I called the Director's attention to an Air Force contract with the University of Colorado on UFO's. In this connection, Dr. Condon called Art Lundahl to ask for technical support. The amount of work would be minimal. DD/I was inclined to offer NPIC's services. The Director agreed. Godfrey reported that OCI will be coordinating today with ONE a draft paper on the possible effects of a disruption by China of Soviet supplies to North Vietnam. Godfrey briefed the Director on internal Chinese developments. Kent reported a call from Allan Evans asking for a crash up-date of the pre-Christmas Estimate on withdrawal of forces from Europe. The Director is not disposed to handle such a paper prior to the regular USIB meeting next Thursday. DDCI felt that, prior to undertaking any Estimate, we should have a coordinated, written statement of require- ments. (See Action 1) Kent noted that ONE is preparing written conclusions for the disarmament Estimate and also a spread sheet for Admiral Lowrance in accord with the Director's wishes.
