Please arrange for a check to be drawn in the favor of WUSALINE in this amount and sent to WUSALINE Attention: the author of the billing. 3. Would appreciate completing this transaction prior to 31 December 1967. If the check route is not feasible, a bank transfer would be all right. Necessary data for a bank transfer can be supplied, if needed, by telephone. By my calculations, the remainder of Project WUBRINY funds in WUTACTIC/WUGLITTER after this funding will be $73.08."

Since WUGAMP has sufficient funds for its bank account to manage a $3,311.00 disbursement, it was decided to utilize this company. (REDACTION) was advised to stop the sterile check process and to have the $3,311.00 voucher approved and forwarded to DO/CM for payment instructions.

This procedure is being followed in order that WUGAMP can show a slight profit as well as to prevent the exact same amount of money being received and disbursed..."
