Would appreciate full report [of] your implementation of Infoguide Bulletins concerning East Berlin demonstrations. We believe this presents excellent propaganda opportunity and singular chance to work cooperatively with West German Government and SPD. In addition to steps already taken (instruction to information media and Conant statement) we are hoping to be able have President announce new grants to West Berlin economic programs (UR TOMUS 747) with appropriate statement regarding situation in East Berlin. Therefore suggest you do not make release this item until after Presidential statement.
