451. Re: LINC 399.2

In accordance with ref, request ETA Givloch soonest.
Prior to trip, request Givloch confer with FMBLUG to obtain JMBLUG’s personal views on following:
What political platform should an anti-Commie group, seeking to overthrow WSBURNT Govt, espouse? What should be announced position of such group on agrarian reform, foreign capital, role of army, labor unions, nationalism, etc.?
What political actions must an anti-Commie group, once it has seized power, carry out to remain in power? What should it actually do on the planks contained in its pre-coup platform?
Above is for LINCOLN guidance prior to shaping up [name not declassified]/Calligeris positive political program.
Dir FYI: Believe foregoing guidance helpful and easily obtainable but not to be construed as any effort to bypass ODACID.
