Please advise the status of processing for the reinstatement of the clearance on LICOOKY/1, whom the Base is interested in contacting for the purpose of assessing her access to targets and information of Latin American ops interest. 2. FYI: we understood from C/WH/1 during his visit here some two months ago that LICOOKY/1 in his opinion still had mileage for our purposes here. Howard G. Figalan."

01/19/68: Dispatch from Chief of Base, Withheld to Chief, DO: Subject: ISOLOG - LICOOKY/1: "1. Reference advised that a POA had been issued to LICOOKY/1 for Base contact to determine her access to targets of interest. 2. The undersigned met with LICOOKY/1 on 20 December 1967 and 4 January 1968 and it appears that she can and will be of operational service to us. Headquarters will be kept abreast of future operational developments as they unfold. 3. For purpose of our background knowledge here, we would appreciate receiving copies of LICOOKY/1's PRQ Part I and her most recent PRQ Part II. No other material from her voluminous 201 file is really needed here, as the undersigned is conversant with her case from Headquarters' days. 4. A new PRQ Part II will be compiled on her in the near future. Howard G. Figalan."

04/17/68: Dispatch from Chief of Base, Withheld to Chief, Withheld: Subject: ISOLOG/LICOOKY - Termination of Contact with LICOOKY/1: "1. During a meeting with LICOOKY/1 on 5 April 1968 agreement was reached that the WOFIRM relationship with her would be terminated. A memorandum of contact (NYM-2689) concerning the meeting is attached herewith, and indicates the reasons for this termination. No administrative action is required of either the Base or Headquarters in this instance, as LICOOKY/1 was not being paid by us here, and was formally terminated once before (1966). Her file can be retired, again, and this time presumably will be the last time. 2. Termination was very amicable, and LICOOKY/1 holds no ill-will for WOFIRM: she just does not wish to have any relationship with WOFIRM anymore. 3. The writer fully expects to hear from LICOOKY/1 from time to time by phone (in fact, she called later the same day of the meeting to wish the writer a pleasant Easter, as she had forgotten to do so during the meeting), but does not plan any further personal contact. Howard G. Figalan."
