Kelley with AFIO Board chairman W. Ray Wannall, right. De Borchgrave, Noted Journalist To Talk At Dec. 7 Lunch Arnaud deBorchgrave, noted author and journal- ist, will be AFIO's National Headquarters' guest speaker on December 7, 1983 at the Bolling Air Force Base Officers Club. DeBorchgrave, former senior corres- pondent for Newsweek magazine, is co-author of the The Spike and more recently the best-selling Monimbo', a story of Soviet/Cuban machinations in Latin Amer- ica. He is known as one of Washington's top experts in Soviet subversion and covert action operations (the lat- ter in Moscow's language is called "active measures"). Flyers are being mailed separately to AFIO mem- bers in Maryland, the District of Columbia and Virginia, giving details on the luncheon and a map enabling members to reach Bolling base from all directions. Cost of the luncheon is $10. per person. Members are encouraged to bring guests. Reservations and pay- ments for the lunch must reach AFIO national head- quarters on or before November 28. Early replies are solicited because we expect a capacity crowd at the luncheon. AFIO's 9th annual convention was held on October 14-15 at the Holiday Inn on the Embar- cadero in San Diego, against a backdrop of the magnificent, boat-filled harbor of that handsome city. Approximately 200 AFIO and their wives attended Convention '83 representing most of AFIO's 20 chapters and coming from all corners of the country. Opened by Lee E. Echols, general chairman of Convention '83, the convention attendants heard remarks from AFIO President, Major-General Richard X. Larkin, USA(Ret). Presentation of the colors by a U.S. Marine Corps team preceded the discussion panels. Discussion Panels With the convention theme of "A Strong U.S. Intelligence Community is Every American's Respon- sibility," two panels of experts absorbed the delegate's interest on October 14. The morning session featured a panel discussion of "Technology Transfer" between General Richard G. Stilwell, USA(Ret) and Henry E. Hockeimer, President of Ford Aerospace and Communications Corp. Part of this fascinating topic, which involves stealing of U.S. high technology secrets by the Soviet block by hook-or- by-crook was a 20-minute film on this theme originally shown on the "American Interests" television program and shown to the delegates on a large video screen. The afternoon session, on the theme of the need for closer cooperation between the intelligence and academic communities featured two well-known edu- cators from universities in the San Diego area. [Full accounts of these panel discussions may be read elsewhere in this issue.] General Stilwell, as luncheon speaker on October 14, gave an international tour of the horizon from the standpoint of U.S. foreign policy. Luncheon speaker on October 15 was AFIO President Larkin who delivered a (continued on page 3) Sanitized Copy Approved for Release 2010/09/08: CIA-RDP90-00806R000100140028-5 Sanitized Copy Approved for Release 2010/09/08: CIA-RDP90-00806R000100140028-5 Four Resolutions, One By-Law Amendment At Convention '83 Four resolutions and one amendment to AFIO by-laws were approved on October 15, 1983 during the business session of Convention '83. They are as follows: Resolution on Intelligence Legislation WHEREAS existing law is inadequate to deter unauthorized disclosures of sensitive intelligence information, sources and methods, and to punish those who make such disclosures; and WHEREAS the effectiveness of the intelligence effort is impaired by the inadequacy of existing law; NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT the Association of Former Intelligence Officers in convention assembled on October 15, 1983 call upon the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence to initiate legislation to amend and update existing law to deter and punish unauthorized disclosures of sensitive intelligence information. The Administration is also urged to take similar action. Resolution on Freedom of Information Act WHEREAS since 1971 over 1100 "Bivins" lawsuits, many with multiple defendants totaling 7500-10,000 employees, have been filed, and less than 20 have resulted in money judgments; WHEREAS in publicly supporting proposed amendments to the Act the Department of Justice has declared the majority of these suits to be trivial and vindictive; and WHEREAS the current legislation has a chilling and stifling effect on employees of the Congress, regulatory agencies, inves- tigative agencies and other Government bodies under its provi- sions; and WHEREAS the proposed legislative amendments would not remove a citizen's legal recourse if wronged by the Government but would curb harassing actions, increase legitimate plaintiff's recoveries by encouraging settlements by the Government, and reduce the Government's litigation costs; NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT the Association of Former Intelligence Officers in convention assembled on October 15, 1983 urges the Congress to pass S.775 (Article 13 of S.829) which will make the Federal Government the sole party defendant instead of the individual employee in such suits. Resolution on MIA/POW WHEREAS the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) as applied to the Intelligence Community has seriously impaired the effec- tiveness of intelligence efforts; and WHEREAS the Freedom of Information Act has created substantial monetary burdens and diversion of senior officer skills in the Intelligence Community; and WHEREAS the inability of intelligence agencies to assure sources, whether human, governmental, or institutional, both foreign and domestic, that the agencies can fully protect identi- ties and sensitive information from exposure under the Freedom of Information Act, causing a substantial reduction of coopera- tion and the loss of many sources; and WHEREAS the basic purposes of the Freedom of Informa- tion Act can be fulfilled on behalf of historians and scholars through the declassification provisions of Executive Order 12365; and WHEREAS those desiring knowledge of files kept on them- selves may make application under the provisions of the Privacy Act; and WHEREAS representatives of the Intelligence Community and the Association of Former Intelligence Officers testified in June 1983 before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on S.1324, which provides some relief for CIA from the onerous requirements of FOIA, with the Assocation of Former Intelli- gence Officers urging the Committee to provide additional relief by exempting CIA and other intelligence entities from FOIA; NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT the Association of Former Intelligence Officers in convention assembled on October 15, 1983 press upon the Congress the urgency of acting upon S.1324 and providing relief from the Freedom of Informa- tion Act for all entities of the United States Intelligence Community. Resolution on Amendments to Federal Tort Claims Act WHEREAS the Federal Tort Claims Act, since the 1971 Supreme Court decision in Bivins vs. Six Unknown Narcotics Agents, now makes government employees personally liable instead of the government for actions taken in good faith within the scope of their authority and duty; and WHEREAS the President of the United States has reaffirmed the promise of the American people to their military forces to be cared for and accounted for in battle; and WHEREAS full and complete information concerning pri- soners of war, military and civilian personnel missing in action, and the remains of American personnel participating in the Vietnam War has not been made available to the United States Government; and WHEREAS such lack of accounting continues to cause mental anguish and deep concern to relatives and to all Ameri- cans; and WHEREAS principles of international law and simple humanitarian concepts demand that such information be made available; NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT the Association of Former Intelligence Officers in convention assembled on October 15, 1983 urges continuing high priority efforts of the Intelligence Community to collect accurate information concern- ing the remains of military and civilian personnel missing in Southeast Asia and the location of any such personnel still detained against their wills in Southeast Asia, and further urges the United States Government to take action on this intelligence.

Convention Business and Voting Reports from AFIO's chapters occupied much of the October 15 morning session. (These are gisted elsewhere in this issue of Periscope.) Voting for resolu- tions and a change in AFIO's by-laws were also achieved in this session. (Full texts of these appear on page 2 of this issue.) W. Ray Wannall, chairman of the board of directors, announced that the board had invited the well-known author and editor, John Barron, to join AFIO's Honorary Board of Directors. Voting for members to the board of directors occurred before the October 15 luncheon. Of the four directors elected by the Convention delegates, and including proxy votes sent to the board, two were re- elected: David Atlee Phillips, AFIO founder and past president, and Lyman Kirkpatrick, former Executive Director of CIA. The two new directors elected are Ann Caracristi, former deputy director of NSA, and John Anson Smith, former MI officer currently in Naples, Florida, Mr. Smith has been a key figure in promoting the intelligence syposium now occurring annually in Naples, Florida at which AFIO officers have been prin- cipal speakers and panelists. A.I.M. Founder Speaks At the October 15 afternoon session, Reed Irvine, founder of A.I.M. (Accuracy in Media), the organization and periodical which keeps tabs on bias in U.S. dailies and television, was guest speaker. He commented on the hostility of U.S. media in general to the Reagan administration and alluded to the rapid erosion of world sentiment against the USSR in the case of the massacre of Korean airlines flight 007 last September 1. He stated that A.I.M. has been concentrating on sensitizing the public to unfair coment and bias by the major TV networks, of which, he said, CBS is the worst in terms of its anti-administration slant. The final event of Convention '83 was the October 15 banquet, preceded by an extremely colorf ul dance program by a local youthful Filipino troupe. Former FBI director Clarence M. Kelley, the banquet speaker, gave a trenchant and applauded speech on the need for vigilance and a professional intelligence organization in the U.S. He recounted his first encounters with FBI counter-intelligence and his growing admiration for their work. Board chairman Wannall who introduced Mr Kelley in turn spoke glowingly of Kelley's full sup- port of counter-intelligence adctivities as FBI director when Wannall himself was supervising that activity in the Bureau. Convention '83 was flawlessly planned and run off by AFIO's San Diego chapter under general guid- ance from Chairman Echols. The unanimous consen- sus of the out-of-town delegates was extremely laudatory of the behind-the-scenes work which enabled a successful and smoothly organized convention in both a social and professional sense. Reed Irvine, Accuracy in Media Head, addresses Convention '83 Lunch President Reagan Personally Awards Medal to Dick Helms The many AFIO admirers of former CIA Director, and former Ambassador to Iran, Richard M. Helms, will be pleased to hear that he was presented the National Security Medal on October 20 at the White House by President Reagan personally. The White House an- nouncement took note of the "exceptionally meritor- ious service" of Mr Helms in the service of his country. Helms already has received CIA's Distinguished Intelligence Medal. The National Security Medal to date has been awarded to approximately two dozen government employees since its creation. Helms, now 70 years old, was CIA director from 1967 to 1973. He currently serves as a member of the prestigious Scowcroft Commission of distinguished Americans which counsels the President in new nuclear arms programs and weapons systems. He is an international business consultant in Washington D.C. Convention '83 Elections At Convention '83, held at San Diego, all of AFIO's officers were re-elected by the Board of Directors for another year. They are: President, Major-Gen Richard X. Larkin (USA(Ret)). Vice president, Robert D. Brown, Jr. Secretary, Mrs Charlotta P. Engrav Treasurer, Robert J. Novak. Four members of AFIO's Board of Directors were elected by AFIO membership (those present and those voting by proxy) at the Convention, filling existing vacancies. They are: Lyman Kirckpatrick, (re-elected) David Atlee Phillips (re-elected) Ann Caracristi John Anson Smith.

Current books of interest to intelligence buffs and watchers of the world scene. All reviews are by AFIO members except when otherwise noted. Intelligence From Down Under Sub Rosa, Memoirs of an Australian Intelligence Ana- lyst, by R. H. Mathams. Published by George Allen & Unwin, 1982. At a dinner with entertainment staged by the U.S. Air Force some years ago, the master of ceremonies told a story which this reviewer found especially amus- ing: An officer had been reprimanded because he had been detailed to the DIA "and he refused to take it like a manl" This social comment, and a number of others less fit to print, came to mind when Mathams, a retired senior Australian intelligence official, professed that he initially "shared the cynical view of some of my brother officers that the way to become an intelligence officer was to demonstrate that one had no aptitude for any other aspect of soldiering." Many other events, considerations and conclusions recited in this book will evoke nods of agreement or smiles of recognition by present and former practitioners of the intelligence game hereabouts. Often the difference between the author's observations and ours is a matter of scope and description: his humor is more gentle and his lan- guage more genteel than what this reviewer recalls hearing in the American environment. And his frame- work is, of course, much smaller. Intelligence Analyst and Patriot A few things need to be understood at the outset. For one, Matham has come out of his long and distin- guished career as a proud, even if at times critical, intelligence protagonist, and as an Australian patriot. He made his way in the analytical field-science and technology, to be exact-and his book does not deal with intelligence collection except in the most cursory way. ("Procurement," the initial term, was dropped as overly suggestive, he informs us.) Within his chosen framework, he dwells with remarkable frankness on experiences, disappointments, insufficiencies, errors, friction, goals and priorities. And although he is clearly aware that his book will be read abroad, his eyes are fixed on the Australian public and its leaders who, he believes, need his counsel and will benefit from it. As behooves someone who has cultivated a highly methodical approach to his craft, Mathams starts out by defining terms and stating principles. He draws a sharp line between analysis and operations, explains operational activities in rather narrow terms, and holds that intelligence analysts have been unjustly contami- nated by being lumped with operators and security officers as intelligence personnel. For a man of broad experience, he commits a surprising error: the Ameri- can CIA, he declares, is "unique" in taking responsibil- ity for both analysis and collection. But his look at his own activity, foreign intelligence analysis, is sharp and unwavering: the analytical establishment is vital to the nation, must be staffed by professionals rather than officers detached from other units, is better suited to the assessment of long-range capabilities than the divination of intentions or the prediction of specific events, can go astray by forgetting that thought pro- cesses vary in different societies, and can help policy- makers best if the analysts are kept advised of policy initiatives. He recognizes proximity to policy levels as a mixed blessing: while it places analysts in an influen- tial position, it tends to divert them from dispassionate research to a more hazardous preoccupation with short-range fluctuations. These and other issues raised by Mathams illustrate the intellectual challenges he has accepted in writing his book. Many readers with intelligence experience will frequently have different answers, but few will have failed to ask the same questions. Mathams takes us through the late fifties and early sixties, when the changing strategic scene pro- pelled Australian intelligence into a more significant role: there was the Sino-Soviet split, first diagnosed by an Australian analyst; the Chinese nuclear tests; Indonesia's increasing truculence; the domino theory, raising the specter of Communist domination of South- east Asia; and Australian combat commitments under the SEATO pact. While Australia could not match its major allies-notably the U.S. and Great Britain-in terms of intelligence resources, it held its own in pro- ducing top-quality analyses, particularly on the Chi- nese People's Republic. Australia was, in turn, im- pressed by the quality of its allies' analyses of the Soviet Union, and gradually decided that it could make its best contribution by concentrating efforts in its own neighborhood. In 1966, the enhanced standing of Aus- tralian intelligence in its own country was certified by the establishment of a national intelligence organiza- tion designed to deal with matters of strategic concern. The author intersperses his book with anecdotes that make for amusing reading. There was the time when a search for Japanese writing produced a heavy log with directions to the officers' latrine. On another occasion, a huge loudspeaker, blasting antiJapanese propaganda from the Australian front line, was silenced by small arms fire: "It was never determined whether the fire was enemy or ours." And Mathams' qualifica- tions for intelligence work became clear to his com- mander when Mathams drew a spiral around a sand hill, thus demonstrating that he knew how a mountain road should look. Despite some light touches, the book does not qualify as easy reading material. Those inter- ested in exploring and comparing organizational and conceptual approaches to intelligence analysis will find Sub Rosa informative and thought-provoking, and the book should be a significant contribution to the intelli- gence debate in Mathams' own country. It was obviously not designed for the literary mass market here. -Hans Moses Credits for Photography For the photographs in this issue, we are indebted to Bill and Elizabeth Nelson, associate members from Simi Valley, Cali- fornia, and to San Diego chapter member Wally Driver.

The morning session on U.S. high technology thefts and acquisitions by the Soviet bloc comprised General Stilwell, currently the Defense Department's Deputy UnderSecretary for Policy, and Mr. Henry E. Hockeimer, president of Ford Aerospace and Commun- ications Corporation. Stilwell emphasized that the Soviets are 80 percent dependent on U.S. technology and research and development. Their success in acquiring U.S. technology secrets, he said, forces the U.S. to spend additional billions in achieving new technology to compensate that stolen or otherwise acquired by the USSR. About 90 percent of U.S. tech- nology, Stilwell said, is acquired legally by the USSR by a variety of means: from overt U.S. technical periodi- cals and publications, loose talk, the U.S. patent office and the automated data base arena available to the Soviets. Soviet Theft of US Secrets The Soviet bloc also uses illegal methods, he said, including foreign dummy corporations, front organiza- tions, false points of destination, and actual espionage, thus saving the Soviets hundreds of millions of dollars annually and years of work in research efforts. Soviet acquisition of U.S. sensitive technology has cut the U.S. lead-time in superiority in these areas from 10 to two years and gives the Soviets the opportunity to develop counter-measures quickly and cheaply. Hockeimer emphasized that U.S. industry has long been aware that advanced U.S. technology was flowing abroad, including its military application by the USSR. He posed the difficult question of how the U.S. can curtail the acquisition of technology by foreigners, including the Soviets, and yet maintain U.S. industrial profitability. He reminded his audience that 20 percent of U.S. technology is exported and that $15 billion in air-space technology alone is exported annually. He further noted that much U.S. technology is duplicated elsewhere in the west and that if the U.S. does not sell it to the Soviets, other western nations will. Although U.S. industry supports some controls over technological transfers to support and strengthen our allies and to support U.S. foreign policy, a balance must be struck, Hockeimer said, between national interests and the need for U.S. industry to remain profitable and competitive. As for controls over high technology, Hockeimer supports practical limits by denying to the Soviets only the "leading edge technol- ogy" which is vital to U.S. national interests, rather than the 100,000 items listed as deniable in U.S. commodity controls, which is impractical for the U.S. to follow. Panelists on Soviet Acquisition of US high technol- ogy. L to R, General Richard G. Stilwell(Ret) and Henry E. Hockeimer, president, Ford Aerospace. Panel on Intelligence And Academia The afternoon panel on October 14, chaired by Lt-Gen Eugene F. Tighe, Jr. USAF(Ret), and a member of AFIO's board of directors, comprised Father Paul Goda, a Jesuit teacher at California's Santa Clara Uni- versity, and Prof. Richard Gripp, of the political science department at San Diego State University and himself formerly with CIA for five years. Goda professed him- self pulled in several directions concerning intelligence, as a man of Hungarian parentage, a former U.S. mil- itary intelligence officer, a priest, and a teacher. Prof. Gripp pointed out the anomalies between academic and intelligence communities and stated that the former should be "totally free" to come to any conclusion it reaches in international research. (This statement was vigorously challenged from the floor). Gripp also noted the danger of "contamination" of the academic community's bona fides by U.S. intelligence agents using scientific cover. A delegate responded from the floor that in many regions of the world, any American researcher or professional man is imme- diately and automatically viewed as a U.S. intelligence agent whether he is or not.

Chapter Heads Report At San Diego Convention At Convention '83 in San Diego last October 15, the officers of 12 out of AFIO's 20 chapters reported on the activities of their units. Following are gists of these chapter reports: Arizona, president John Matson reporting. The distances which must be covered when the chapter's 26 members hold a meeting are enormous, a factor cheer-fully undertaken by many chapter members. For example, it is eight hours driving time between east and west Arizona. Wives of chapter members are essential to the activity of the unit. The chapter has gained good member interest by arranging for good speakers on such topics as Afghanistan, covert terror- ism in the U.S. etc. California San Diego Chapter, president Quinn Matthewson reporting. This chapter was host for Convention '83 and did an unusually fine job in making all convention arrangements. It is one of AFIO's largest chapters with 126 members, a monthly newsletter, monthly meet- ings with attendance from 60 to 120 members, and a speakers program in which chapter members have this year made more than 70 public talks, TV and radio appearances, etc. a large number of these by member Lee Echols personally. Orange County Chapter, president Howard Furst. This is a small chapter, with about 20 members. Its meeting sites are a problem but the group retains its small but closely-knit camaraderie. San Francisco Chapter, president-emeritus Brig- Gen. James Boswell, USA(Ret) reporting. This chapter, founded five years ago, has monthly meetings despite lengthy distances for its members travel. Its 80 members represent a drop of about 15 percent over the year before. Its president, Margaret Rudduck, re- signed recently because of serious illness. Its members, especially Prof Al Buckelew and Roger McCarthy, give about 100 speeches a year to local groups on the KGB, the activity of CIA etc. Palm Beach Chapter (formerly Southeast Chap- ter), Stan Phillips reporting. This is a small chapter with about 20 members and to date has little activity although plans are in store to vivify its membership. Southwest Chapter, president Don Randell re- porting. This chapter is involved in the now-annual Intelligence Symposium occurring in Naples, Florida, with the Naples Daily News as a co-sponsor. Its members are active in letter-writing to newspapers on intelligence topics. Randall urged "cross-pollinization" of activity among the Florida chapters. Florida Suncoast Chapter, vice-president Andy Ferguson reporting. He stated the chapter had 63 members and had elected Keith McPhee as its new president. This chapter encompasses the Tampa-St Petersburg area and has published its own chapter membership directory. Illinois Greater Chicago Chapter, Tom Mackie, secretary- treasurer, reporting. One of its better known members is Richard Dunlop, author of the recent book "Donovan- America's master spy." The chapter has difficulty in finding younger members in the Chicago area. It makes good use of AFIO brochures and the first AFIO monograph in the education series.

Mr. Marshall is very definitely alive; a person with the same first and last name died in Nashua and a friend of Marshall's family mistakenly reported the death of our AFIO member to national headquarters. We deeply regret this error and wish our Mr. Marshall the best health, longevity, and a lower golf handicap.

We do not run our dues-system on a calendar-year basis. On the first of the month in which a member's dues expire, national headquarters sends a self-addressed dues-payment envelope via first-class mail to the member's last known address. If payment is not received during that month, a second notice is sent at the beginning of the next month. Life Membership: One way to end payment of annual dues is to sign up as an AFIO Life Member, for $250. This is a one-time payment. Remember that AFIO dues are tax-deductible because AFIO is an IRS 501(c)(3) organization. Changes of Address: AFIO's new membership directory will be printed in January 1984. All changes of address must be received at national headquarters no later than December 31, 1983 in order to be included in the directory. The new directory will be mailed to members together with the Periscope issue of February 1984. We must have apartment numbers for those members who live in multi-family buildings. Lapel Pins and Decals: We have a supply of AFIO lapel pins which will be mailed to members upon receipt of five dollars each. AFIO decals may be pur- chased at one dollar each, pre-paid. Speakers' Kits: The kits were prepared two years ago but are still very timely and useful as background material in preparing speeches and talks. These kits will be mailed after receipt of five dollars each. AFIO Financial Statement STATEMENT OF ASSETS AND LIABILITIES ARISING FROM CASH TRANSACTIONS Dave Phillips, organizer at "Challenge" Group 'Challenge' Organization Fights Media Slander Challenge, Inc., an organization created in 1980 by AFIO founder David A. Phillips to provide financial assistance for government employees, active and retired, attempting to seek redress for slander or libel committed against them in the performance of their official duties, is reporting progress in achieving its aims. The organization, whose president is Richard H. Lansdale and whose advisors include General Richard G. Stilwell, USA(Ret), former Senator James Buckley, former CIA director Bill Colby, former astronaut Michael Collins, and other distinguished former intelligence officials, has received contributions to date from more than 600 supporters. Phillips is currently engaged in two costly suits against persons who allegedly defamed him in publica- tions in connection with the murders of President John F. Kennedy and former Chilean ambassador Orlando Letelier. Challenge has also come to the aid of former U.S. ambassador Nathaniel Davis, State Depart- ment FSO Fred Purdy, and Captain Ray E. Davis, USN(Ret). All three have filed a libel action against persons responsible for the book "Missing" and the movie of the same name which depict events in Chile during and after the Allende regime in the early 1970s. Challenge has also offered to assist retired U.S. General William Westmoreland in his current libel suit against CBS. AFIO members interested in Challenge and in supporting it should write to Challenge, Inc., Box 34320, Bethesda, Md. 20817.

All those in attend- ance understand the work and worry the chapter went through; all of us appreciate it, and we congratulate you. As I was a year ago, I am awed at the Board's decision that I should serve as President for a second year. While I challenge the wisdom of a suposedly "intelligent" Board in their choice, I'll do my best to protect their reputations. Much was accomplished at the Convention and much was laid out to do. I am deeply impressed by the earnest participation of our members, many of whom offered suggestions which we will consider: forming small advisory clusters to help U.S. industry curb tech- nology transfer to the Eastern Bloc; an installment approach (over a one year period) to Life Membership; balloting suggestions (many!); the need for a chapter handbook, and many more. The spirit in which these suggestions were made was refreshing. Where the health of our Association is involved, no one is reticent! Our guest speakers, too, helped lay out our work for the coming year: to help our industry and govern- ment stem the technology flow, to insist on accurate and objective media reporting by voicing/penning our objections to the advertisers, to continue to educate all who will listen on the essentiality of good and timely intelligence, as well as on the persistency of the threat, and to counter by every possible means the Societ's frantic and world-wide efforts to block NATO's inten- tions to balance Moscow's SS-20 threat with Pershing Its and cruise missiles, as well as the Kremlin's organ- ized campaign for our unilateral nuclear disarmament. Congratulations are due each of you for the efforts you've made this past year. I ask you not to let up in the coming year. Be assured that our adversary will not. AFIO does need additional members, and each current member is the most effective recruiter for new members. Charlotta Engrav, AFIO's esteemed Secretary, at Convention '83 New AFIO Monographs Now in Preparation (continued from page 15) The second AFIO monograph in its "Intelligence Profession Series" will be "The First Amendment and National Security", by John Warner, AFIO's legal adviser and former CIA General Counsel. The third monograph will be a history of Soviet intelligence, writ- ten by Tom Polgar, a senior CIA officer until his retire- ment. More precise schedules for publication of the Warner and Polgar papers will be announced in our next Periscope issue. Members who desire to receive the initial monograph by Hans Moses should write to AFIO national headquarters for a copy. Convention '83 Panels (continued from page 5) John Warner, AFIO's legal counsellor, referred to the need for courses in universities on intelligence, as a means of changing academic misconceptions about intelligence, a point with which both speakers agreed. General Tighe mentioned the need to revive the NIS' (National Intelligence Survey) which had been eliminated by the intelligence community for budget reasons in recent years. The NIS' provide maximum knowledge on any given country or area in the world, information which is essential to U.S. understanding, he said, and which formerly gave good training and experience for officers of the various agencies of government which contributed to the NIS'. This panel achieved no consensus although it highlighted the need for mutual reaching out to each other by both intelligence and academic officials and researchers.
