CUT CLANDESTINE OPERATIONS:

New CIA

head to economize

WASHINGTON (P) - A fresh
look at the cost-effectiveness of
the Central Intelligence Agency
has been underway in the weeks
since James Schlesinger took
over as its chief.
One of the questions being ask-
ed, sources say, is whether it is

necessary to spend all t h a t
money on clandestine operations
now that the government says it
has adopted a policy of becom-
ing less involved in the internal
affairs of other countries. No one
will say just how much money is
being spent.

became head of the CIA on Feb.
5, succeeding Richard Helms,
now U.S. ambassador to Iran.
The cease-fire in Laos may of-
fer the opportunity for a sharp
reduction in CIA costs. Under
terms of the agreement, all fore-
ign forces are to be withdrawn
within 90 days, and this includes
the CIA-financed Thai volunteers,
who have been fighting on behalf
of the Laotian government.
According to sources, the White
House offered Helms an oppor-
tunity more than a year ago to
coordinate costs and policies in
a reorganization of the U.S. in-
telligence community. Besides.
the CIA, this includes the Defense
Intelligence Agency (DIA), the
National Security Agency (NSA),
and the State Department's Bur-
eau of Intelligence and Research.
There was said to be disan-
pointment at the White House
when the study was not forth-
coming.

Officials said President Ni'oa
has placed no restrictions on
Schlesinger's efforts at CIA.
They denied reports that a purge
of the CIA is involved. Obvious-
ly there are going to be some
changes, is it conceded, but this
falls far short of a top-to-toe
shakeup now.
According to one published re-
port Thomas Karamessines, di-
rector of CIA's clandestine serv-
ices, and general counsel Laur-
ence Houston, and two high aides
close to Helms were singled out
by Schlesinger for early retire-
ment.
Sources reported Karamessines
wanted to retire last year but
Helms asked him to stay on. The
clandestine service chief was
awarded a civil-service medal for
sustained excellence in govern-
ment service and this year he
won another award for his work
in the intelligence community.
So his retirement is not a new
development, it is pointed out.

"The Congress should examine

Muskie replied that Nixon could

Carter said Georgia is consider-
ing a suit against the federal gov-
ernment to force the Supreme
Court to decide promptly "whether
or not the President has a right
to impound appropriated funds in
direct controvention of the ex-
pressed will of Congress."
Curtis said it is "just p 1 a i n
nonsense" to say that revenue
sharing allotments can make up
for budget cuts which he said "are
directed mainly at our poor, our
elderly, our sick, our unemployed,
our public school and state uni-
versity and our farmers."
Ford assailed the failure to give
time for transition of programs
from federal control to the states,
said the budget ignores tax re-
forms and complained "we see an
increase in defense spending now
that we have peace with honor."
