Approved Fo~leas~~5~~ MEMORANDUM FOR THE RECORD Morning Meeting of 3 June 1969 3 June 19 69 The Director was at the White House. DDCI was in the chair. Godfrey pointed to two cables from Uruguay and one from Chile assessing the situation there in light of Governor Rockefeller's pro- jected visit. He noted that Ambassador Korry had observed that every political group in Chile has expressed opposition to the visit and advised that there may be a ground swell of reporting which argues for cancella- tion of Phase III of the Governor's mission to Latin America. DD/S reported that last week they completed the review of con- tractor files at ten universities, encountering opposition to the removal of excess material only at the working level at Columbia University. In the case of Columbia, however, when senior officials were consulted, they asked that the files be purged. In response to the DDCI's question DD/S noted that the files at seven universities remain to be reviewed prior to completion of this task. Carver noted that it is relatively quiet in Vietnam. He reported that he spent one hour with Secretary Laird yesterday on NSSM No. 36, Vietnamizing the War, and commented that State is dissenting from the paper and disassociating itself from the DOD position. Maury reported that er the Director's request he advised Frank Slatinsheck to contact for the figures he requested com- paring the Agency's budget with those of other elements of the intelligence community. Maury recalled that had briefed the American Republics Affairs Subcommittee of the Senate Foreign Relations Com- mittee on insurgency in Latin America. He noted that Pat Holt is now requesting a similar briefing for the full Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere. Holt has made it clear that they do not wish to bother the Director with this briefing, which is tentatively scheduled for 16 June.

He noted that is working on the briefing, which will be concerned with the Soviet threat. Maury reviewed his problem in responding to the request of Alton Frye, Senator Brooke's staff assistant, for a briefing on the SS-9 and ABM problem. After consulting with several staff members on the Hill, Maury noted that he called Mr. Frye and advised him that our ground rules prevent the briefing of staff assistants, therein leaving the ball in his court to appeal this position. DDCI asked Maury to raise this problem at tomorrow's meeting. Maury noted that he will be with Senator Baker in the morning but that ill comply. Houston called attention to the item in today's Baltimore Sun reporting on He commented that he will be happy to brief the on t e background of this case at his convenience. o- DD/S&T initiated a lengthy discussion on what appears to him to be an inconsistency in prior approval processes connected with over- flights vs. peripheral flights in terms of 303 Committee approvals. Bross noted receipt of a memorandum from Deputy Secretary Packard pertaining to peripheral flights and noted that the memorandum has precipitated a study group to be formed under the chairmanship of Gardiner Tucker, Acting Deputy Director of Defense for Research and Engineering. Bross noted that the addressees on the memorandum include the full membership of the 303 Committee and that we must decide who will represent the Agency on this study group. DD/S&T noted that he had a good session yesterday with Paul Nitze, who recently joined the DD/S& T Strategic Intelligence Panel. Executive Director asked that each Executive Committee member serve up his summer leave schedule.
