UTILITY WAS PRESENTED WITH A GIFT FROM VIET NAM
WHICH CONSISTED OF THREE FRAMED MAPS OF THAT AREA, PLUSAN INDOCHINA MAP FOLIO PUBLISHED BY WOROMP. AS AN EX-G2,
IN ADDITION TO HIS CURRENT POSITION AS PRESIDENT OF CATUSK,
IT WAS EXPECTED THAT HE
WOULD
BE APPRECIATIVE OF SUCH
A TOKEN GIFT FROM THE FAR EAST. HE WAS. ON THIS SCORE, HE
EXPRESSED A HOPE THAT THE
WRITER
COULD GIVE HIM AN INFORMALBRIEFING ON THAT AREA BASED UPON THE WRITER S RECENT TOURS
OF DUTY THERE.
 
=1ALLOWED HE WAS WILLING TO DO SO, BUT
POINTED
OUT THAT THE
FAST-MOVING EVENTS IN THAT AREA MAKEHIS KNOWLEDGE ALREADY SOMEWHAT
OBSOLETE
NEVERTHELESS, HEAGREED TO DO
se
THIS LED UTILITY 10 DECLARE THAT AFTER
HIS
RETURN FROM LEAVE IN SEPTEMBER HE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A TOURD HORIZON WITH THE WRITER. IN MAKING THIS
REQUEST
UTILITYSTATED THAT HE
FELT
HIS GOVERNMENT HAD BEEN GUILTY OF SOMEMISTAKES RECENTLY IN THE HANDLING OF ITS FOREIGN POLICY.
 
7 OFFERED NO COMMENT.4.
UTILITY BROUGHT UP THE SUBJECT OF SUCCESSION DURINGWHICH HE SIGNIFICANTLY AND FORCEFULLY STATED THAT HISCANDIDATE, AND THE ONE MAN IN GERMANY MOST SUITED 10 SUCCEED
HIM, WAS IDENTITY A.
HE
ALSO MENTIONED THAT ALIAS
 
WENDT, WHO
WAS PRESENT, WAS A
POSSIBLE
CANDIDATE AND ONE WHO UTILITYFELT WAS ACCEPTABLE, BUT ONLY
I
IDENTITY A WAS NOT
AVAILABLE
CR WAS FOR SOME REASON UNACCEPTABLE TO THE BONN GOVERNMENT.
ALIAS WENDI NODDED HIS HEAD IN ACQUIESCENCE WITH NO APPARENTSHOW OF DISAPPOINTMENT. UTILITY POINTED OUT THAT THE RECENTARTICLE IN IDENTITY B, IN HIS OPINION, WAS DONE TO DENIGRATE
IDENTITY
A
BY TARRING HIM WITH THE SAME MILITARY BRUSH THATIDENTITY 8 HAS SO OFTEN WIELDED ON UTILITY HIMSELF AND CATUSK

AS A WHOLE. AS FURTHER EVIDENCE OF THIS SO-CALLED IDENTITY BSLANT, HE ALLUDED TO THE STATEMENT IN THE ARTICLE WHICH PICTUREDIDENTITY AS STRONG ROMAN CATHOLIC WHEN IN FACT HE IS A
STAUCH MEMBER OF THE EVANGELISCHE CHURCH. IN UTILITY S
JAUNDICED VIEW OF IDENTITY 8 AND ITS WRITINGS ON CATUSK, THERELIGIOUS AFFILIATION CHARGE WAS MEANT TO STIR UP OPPOSITIONTO IDENTITY A AMONG CERTAIN ELEMENTS OF THE IDENTITY C.UTILITY DECLARED THAI,
LIKE4 FACT4
HE STRONGLY BELIEVED INTHE FRONT OFFICE MAKEUP ON THE SANE TERMS, WHEREBY THE TOPTWO IN THE ORGANIZATION SHOULD
BE
EITHER
 
TWO CIVILIANS, OR
ONE CIVILIAN AND ONE MILITARY, BUT NEVER TWO MILITARY. HOWEVER,
AT THIS POINT IN HISTORY
 
HE
FELT
STRONGLY THAT, ON THEOCCASION OF THE FIRST SUCCESSION TO THE TOP LEADERSHIP OFCATUSK, CANDIDATES FROM CATUSK ITSELF SHOULD NOT IN FACT
BE REGARDED AS MILITARY CANDIDATES PER SE. FOR EXAMPLE, IN
THE CASE OF ALIAS WENDT, ALTHOUGH HE CARRIES THE RANK OF MAJORGENERAL HE IS IN FACT THE EQUIVALENT OF A CAREER CIVILIAN STAFFEAPLOYEE OF CATUSK. AS A MATTER OF FACT, UTILITY POINTED OUT,.ALL OF THE OLD
 
TINERS,. INCLUDING HIMSELF, REGARDLESS OF WHATMILITARY OR CIVIL SERVICE RANK THEY MAY HOLD, SHOULD IN FACTBE REGARDED AS CIVILIANS BY VIRTUE OF THEIR CATUSK
SERVICE
BOTH OFFICIALLY AND UNOFFICIALLY, FROM 1946 TO 1967. DURING
THIS PERIOD OF TIME, THEY HAVE BEEN LIVIiiG AND WORKING ASCIVILIANS MUCH LONGER THAN AS PROFESSIONAL SOLDIERS, UP TO
AND INCLUDING THEIR WARTIME ACTIVITIES. IN OTHER WORDS WERE
IDENTITY A /WHO CAN BE CONSIDERED A PROFESSIONAL SOLDIER MORETHAN AN INTELLIGENCE CIVILIAN/ APPROVED AS PRESIDEhT, THEirALIAS WENDT, DESPITE CARRYING THE RANK OF MAJOR GENERAL, SHOULD
BE CONSIDERED ELIGIBLE FOR THE POSITION OF VICE PRESIDEiiT.
UIILITY STATED THAT THIS LINE OF REASONING HAS
BEEN
ACCEPTED
