1. FIRST, TO FOCUS SHARPLY • WE ARE NOT It INVOLVED IN A MISUNDERSTANDING WITH UTILITY.' I DO NOT THINK THAT ANYTHING IS GOING TO 'COME TO A BOIL WITH UTILITY' ON THE ZROARLOCK BRIEFINGS. 2. AFTER THE MONTH'S PAUSE FOLLOWING OUR FORMAL INVITATION TO ALIAS ACKERMANN, WE WERE TOLD UTILITY HAD ANTICIPATED THAT ALL FOUR MEN WOULD BE GOING. BUT THERE WERE NO STORM WARNINGS UP. OR PANIC att,L.s RINGING. TO CHECK THIS, WHEN 1 TALKED TO HOLM, AS REFLECTED IN REF B, HE MADE IT CLEAR • A. THAT HE SOBERLY AND SERIOUSLY HOPED THAT THE BRIEFING OF THE FOUR MEN WOULD TAKE PLACE, B. THAT HE UNDERSTOOD HOW A MISUNDERSTANDING TOOK PLACE ON BOTH SIDES, THAT 3. C. D. ___ THAT UTILITY WAS NOT UPSET OR UNDULY CONCERNED, AND HOLM WAS GOING TO DEAL WITH THE MATTER HIMSELF.

THE BACKGROUND IS AS FOLLOWS • -A. NOV. 641_ BRIEFED CATIDERS AT mulocm oN APP AND ISSUED GENERAL INVITATION FUA SUBSEQUENT HQ BRIEFING PERTINENT CATIDERS WHEN CAME PLANS FOR ACTUAL EQUIPMENT AND METHODS FIRM.

D. AUG 66. ONLY AFTER ACKERMANN INVITATION ISSUED DID IT BECOME EVIDENT THAT CAT I DE DID NOT CONSIDER OUR ONKaNAI. INVITATION FOR HQ BRIEFING OF TEAM MET By JUNE 65 SEMINAR. 4. ALTHOUGH THERE IS NO 'BOIL UP" IN THE OFFING AS FAS AS I CAN SEE, WE MUST REMEMBER THAT THE AUTOMATION Of DATA HANDLING IN CATIDE IS A SPECIAL INTEREST OF UTILITY'S. HE WANTS IT ONE RIGHT. HE WANTS IT TO BE COMPATIBLE WITH AMERICAN MILITARY AND ttattuGEKL SYSTEMS. I CERTAINLY HOPE THAT SOME ARRANGEMENT CAN BE MADE TO BRIEF THE FULL ZROARLOCK TEAM.
