Memorandum by the Director of the Management Staff (Heneman) to the Under Secretary of State (Webb)1
Pursuant to your request, I am attaching for your consideration a staff memorandum concerning alternative methods for submitting the 1953 Mutual Security Program. The advantages and disadvantages of submitting one to three bills are discussed.
Your views on this matter should be communicated to Mr. Coolidge and Mr. Ohly as early as possible.
The source text was transmitted by William J. McWilliams, Director of the Executive Secretariat, to Charles A. Coolidge, Deputy Director, International Security Affairs, on October 10, with the following notation: “Mr. Webb has gone over the attached memorandum from Mr. Heneman concerning alternative methods for submitting the 1953 Mutual Security Program.
“Although he does not wish to give you a flat decision which will bind your hands on this matter, it is his opinion that Alternative C is the best way to handle the program in 1953.”
Additional documentation on the development of the Mutual Security Program for Fiscal Year 1953 will be presented in a subsequent volume in the Foreign Relations series.↩
