10/21/63 memo, HMMA-22335, from Chief, Mexico City to Chief, Guatemala re LICOOKY-1 interview with JMTEAK's PGT colleague Jose Luis Balcarcel Ordonez. She reported "LICOOKY-1 has seen Balcarcel several times during recent weeks. Based on comments made by him, she believes he is financially desperate and somewhat disillusioned by Communism; however, she doubts that he could be recruited."

The GPR covers his activities up to March 25, 1968..." page 96: 201-023466 is given on his GPR, rather than 201-042366. Is this a typo? Or some kind of game?

Page 112: "As of October 18, 1968, he and Jose Luis Balcarcel Ordonez are handling travel of Guatemalans to the USSR..." Pages 133-134: Their USSR liaison in 1968 was Nikolai Leonov. The intelligence officers who received this information: Thomas L. Hughes for State; General Carroll for DIA; General McChristian for ACSI; Admiral Harlfinger for Navy ACNO (Intel); General Thomas for Air Force AFSIN; General Carter for NSA; and Sam Papich for FBI.
