above steps conform essentially with the views of LXHCOLfl. however, toasis for acre precise ccoparlaon,doe sly related to Internal WSBUHHT ope will be briefly listed. be noted that Has, through tbe cable traffic le already on noticecoves. Bringing then together in one place, however, should ba useful.

Despite the partial roll up of the Internal organisation, CalUgorla1 staff in WSHDOFS has been able to provide each organiser,xceptions, with the naaeontact believed unaffected by information obtained from SEMANTIC. xceptions ore all nan assigned to the capital

wbo loft onay before tha SQUHTZC Incident waa an issue. There ie no evidence that these nan have bean lost and Calliper la believes that the coordinator for tho capitol who baa now been thoroughly briefed will be able to locate then. This coordinator as well as the remaining organise re have already started toward their assigned posts or are ready to do to. 8. Radio Operators

One radio operator left onay for his poet at Career, The SBUWTIC episode, however, ooourred before delivery of hie set and other gear could take place so that efforts are still being mads to enable him to become operational. The remaining six RRO* are individually ready to go but details regarding the delivery of their seta, establishment of Initial oontaot, etc. are not as yet resolved ao It will stillew days before they leers*

C, Sab leaders

There areab leaders in all. They are slated to go in very icon in order to recruit the additional personnel needed to make op each teaa, which, of course, varies In relation to the target assigned. Each Sab Leader will take with hla material sufficient for hla assigned task or tasks. In addition to thepecial Sab Instructor was despatchedune to Bond, D, Special Teams

These are teams, probablyan each, made up of individuals who have exf titrated into WS HOOPS on their own and without orders. There are roughly ISO of such individuals.

paragraphs have been completed. Although consideration ehould ba giron In positioning these teens to their hone areas, emphasis will hsTe to bo placed on the rear or western areas of the country. Their mission will be to hound the Communists, do seas simple sabotage but to ley off soldier* unless actually attacked. 0. Air Support

STSCARP now has7 aircraft with crews at SOMERSET; on*i7 with crew att Tonoontln in Tegucigalpa witht SOMERSET without pilot} and hopes to8 Boon with pilot and possiblyith pilots. All ground pereonnel as well as armorer are hired or spotted. In addition If desirable STJKURP can hare athough there Is no plan to take advantage of this at the moment.

A capacity now exists, therefore, for leaflet or supply dropsimited scale and ln the near future daytime leaflet drops will be possible or escorted supply drops. il. Movement of Materiel

At present very little materiel has been sent from WSH00FS. Someuitcases with pistols,, Ammo, and demo, gear have been carried into WSBOIOTTons of equipment have been sentuno) black through DTFROGS on the way to WSUURHT.

The basic premise is that earl/ action la vital or the CALLIGERIS group ehould be forgottenew long range KUBARK or ODACID approach should be substituted. Early action will be further elaborated below but in general it means as soon as reasonable operational readiness can be achieved, which granting air drops can be within the nuxt week or ten days.
