Mr. Jack Blake has resigned from the staff of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. Mr. Robert Simmons is his replacement as Staff Director. (U) 3. The Office of Information Services has established a computer link with the off-site installation where archives and retired records are stored. (U) 4. The DDA Office Directors were briefed by OGC and DDO personnel on 23 October on the replacement for Executive Order 12036. Contrary to the impression created by press reports, the new Executive Order does not reflect major changes from the old one. It is different in tone, and states more positively what is permissible, rather than emphasizing negative aspects. The basic responsibilities and authorities remain the same with a few exceptions, and those are all specifically limited to activities the Agency may conduct in support of legitimate foreign policy objectives and activities conducted abroad. Procedures for implementing the Executive Order have been simplified. (C) 5. During the recent emergency power test, all five gen- erators started well, but the test was interrupted when one of the UPS battery chargers began to smoke. A different type of charger will be installed before the next test. (U) 6. There are only two weeks to go to the end of the CFC campaign. All but 29 cards have been turned in to the Adminis- trative Staff and we are close to our goal. Those whose cards are still outstanding are urged to make a special effort to turn them in as soon as possible. (U) 7. The President has reestablished the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board. Ms. Anne Armstrong is Chairman, Mr. Leo Cherne is Vice Chairman. (U) 8. We can expect severe budget pressure during FY-82. DDA offices have been tasked to make a list of least critical require- ments up to a total of 15% of the non-personal services budget. Training and travel funds will require very careful adminis- tration. (U) 9.
