And this is opened from probably six up all the way from the ground floor and it's domed on the inside and everything. And I get a feeling of double corridors on both sides. 01: Page 2 is kind of like a view of the way the staircase starts out and it just keeps sweeping back on itself, corridors on both sides and the main entrance is just facing the staircase. It's almost like a ramp. It's just a long, slow sweeping type of carpeted entrance, with a lot of gray stone and marble and stuff inside. It's a real old building. The only reason why there's not more detail is that this is kind of a macro approach to whatever the problem is. That's the best I can do. 66: Okay.

There was not much in the-center except walkways arid corridors and balconies. Off both sides of the center, on any given floor, were corridors, possibly double corridors. On both sides of some corridors were offices. On other corridors were general rooms, rooms of long tables and many people sitting at tables. There was a club type atmosphere in these rooms. The rooms with the long tables had dark colored rugs, thick and plush. There was some glass in the walls and very ornate high ceilings. In one of these rooms there was a group of 5 or 6 standing to one end of a table. Many people were sitting at the table with a lot of papers or folders. There seemed to be a seminar atmosphere in the room. There was a large table on one side with some kind of refreshments, water, tea and whatnot. Source very briefly described several other areas within this section of the building. There was a room with a lot of maps, many desks and people here were putting pins on maps and marking in files. There was a room which appeared to have black glass walls with lights of some kind which appeared as dots in the glass. The dots seemed to blink. This room was kept dark. In addition to these areas there were more offices and a restaurant which was very formal and exclusive for people in black coats who worked in the building. Source provided some general comments as to his opinion of the function/ activity of this section of building. The area had a mix of different kinds of military. But, there was a majority of civilians. These civilians seemed to be playing men's roles.

In this area there was absolute contol over certain things of world importance. Attached hereto is IXHIBIT I, drawings provided by source concerning the section of building which he described. No further amplifying information was obtained from source during this interview. AGENT'S NOTES: Source was somewhat irritated during the interview. He felt that it was riot appropriate to ask him to describe an entire section of a building. He stated that one might as well ask him to describe a whole country when what they really wanted was a description of the area surrounding one missle silo. Source's mental attitude may have had an adverse effect on his reporting.
