of FI and PM on EEIa

this branch will issue EEXs coapUed from anof existing inferos tion in the target area. From the returns

of these ESIs will come specific target SEIs with appropriate priorities,

For the noment such specific EEI requests are not available, existing information being fair sketchy, incomplete, and insufficient to base an operation on. This paper is designed to acquaint FI with tha nature of PM Requests for training purposes and so that activation of the nets can be commencedroductive scale aoonest.

Lacking specificequest that initial actions of FI be based to obtain the following concerning
