That letter has been answered, with a request fbr reconsideration, which is still unanawerad. So I cannot tell you *tither the FBI will finally end formally withdraw from the JIGSAW Committee or not.

Is there atr dineuaeion? tarr. IJemseras chairman of the Sub-Committee, would you like to lead off? MUM There might be a number of. things pointed out with refwona v to the Priority Program. You will note that the Committee has rot rated tuhetic proo jeots,, fa.v a number of reasons. First, because it is felt Mast a 4,aro s of. agencies rather than one agency should address itself to the problepa a# doing these proJects, and therefore sovorel oroJeabs could be dtnne at bbe same time. In looking over the projects, you trill aee, I thy, qui.#, rot that we have in a sense picked on a number of projects Which could be iom by different departments. Thus, Ibr example, project ' h' . ("Pesarit methods or selection, changing characteristics in the leadership of 111,1 Cc+mrn- nist parties in. Southeast Asia") is obviously a project to be dpne pAmarI.. . by biographical intelli ;ene organizations of the government a Pro j" 114, ("The pattern of olande tine Commimist activities of both legal and #3: I. parties", etc.) is obviously a project to be done principally to, SO. ' JO b.c v designated project 'J'., as one which obviously should be at leapt psrt:?.y dares by External Research -- if not --holly. There are a tumbO ' of other projects which are of srec3 1 interest to member departments of tbb Committee. Another point that I would like to mike In this eonition is that this Priority Program, ar we have it here, should not be the kst of as the only aspect of the program for immediate work in JIGSAW's program. Thnt It to say, thin is, in a sense, the first batch of riports that ought to =ee dome in the near i'btture, but almost all of them make sense only if connect*-' a+ri , another series of reports that should be done eoma af'terwirda. Thus, for example, take project 'b' ("Communist organizational po--entiel s and capabilities in the international maritime inaustt7",) it Is quiff} ellar EffRET Approved For Release 2007/05/17: CIA-RDP80R01731 R003500080030-7 Approved For Release 2007/05/17: CIA-RDP80RO1731 R003500080030-7 that iu terms of the situation that exists in the world to&ay, parti**-t' in the Western World, but to some extent in other parts of the sraorlA ..- 14111 say in Australia and to some extent the South Pacific -`? an m4arstanOW -it' the Government of Oommmist potent:Iala and capabilities in the ,rltkt & Indmstrv is an important requirement. But that ought not to be thou ;ht of as -F.aolzLtti from related projects which fit together. Thera are five or sirs maiaa- a-< tegio industries which I think all of us agree ought to be studied at ones time or another if the reauiremente of the American government sere to be reeemmt sd. The .same thing can be said about a number of others. Pro_joat 's' (tdle :I refers to Communist strategy as revealed in Commnist tactics iin Sou* :east. >ti* I although obviously of rreat importance at this time in view of the evwate in the South Pacific, is really only the first of a series that ought to 3e cc=-ki with reference to Communist strategy and tactics. T4ere are a number -,f c i rs thai sd1l come to mind 3.mmediate]y as you look at the report. BABBI 't Yds. X should say that that Project 'b', on the, inter .rticrr maritime industry,, would be oonnectod with any other studies of the r.. othea^ industries affected by the U, or any other Oor mnitnt dominated ? labb;- orwwni-,etion. BABBITT: ;Githin that framework, is there air discussion, &441?tioa , or suggested deletions from the nriom.ty list? NICI3QI,8 t 1 am a little confused at this nertieular staga. In thw shnr, list we have 'Communist capabilities and intentions fbr sabotage of it r=ortt- ir- facilities' in Just two countries -- France and Italy. I think It shat td t made annarent that the ArAy is interested in these capabilities and ir> nt cb-+. 7 Number 13 throursh 21 is the proun.
