Re: Request by Comrade Gus Hall, General Secretary, Communist Party USA

Comrade Gus Hall, General Secretary, Communist Party USA, has requested that his personal representative be received in Moscow to take a special training course to carry out his special assignments. The member of the party leadership who had carried out G. Hall’s special assignments over a considerable period of time was relieved of duty after coming down with a grave disease.

We believe it possible to grant Comrade G. Hall’s request, tasking the CC CPSU International Department and the Department of Administrative Affairs with the accommodation and servicing of Comrade G. Hall’s representative, and the Committee for State Security of the USSR with his 60-day training.

This matter has been coordinated with Comrade Yu.V. Andropov, Chairman of the Committee for State Security of the USSR.

Expenses involved in Comrade G. Hall’s representative’s trip from the US to the USSR and back, as well as in his stay in the USSR, should be referred to the expense items of the party budget.

Draft Resolution of the CC CPSU is enclosed herewith.

Comrade Gus Hall has requested that his personal representative, who carries out his special assignments, undergo a special course of training.

It is the opinion of the KGB that it would be desirable to receive him in September-October 1980, for a term of 45 days.

The KGB of the USSR will undertake to make arrangements for the training of Comrade Gus Hall’s representative.

(Signed) Yu. Andropov,

Chairman of the Committee
