CALLIGERIS feels this oan be done in all garrisons with the exception of QUICHE, MAZHWANGO, and SAN JOSB. SECANT Is cognitant of the problem and ournd is Writing toward solutions there. If ell goes ea planned tbe organization within the garrison can take orer withouthot either through (a) selling. end others on futility resisting and good of Joining, or (b) denying weapons and ammo and facilities to non-Joiners. If not successful above tbe organization and correct disposition of members should quell any opposition. If necessary, the ciTillan outer organization at each garrison will act to provide the overwhelming force.
