A file of correspondence and reports concerning espionage in the Soviet Union. Subjects covered in the file include a vigilance campaign in the Soviet press, with numerous articles warning about the dangers of American and Western agencies operating under the guise of diplomats, tourists, students, visiting scientists, and businessmen. Further correspondence discusses a wave of vigilance propaganda resulting from the shooting down of a U-2 spy plane; warnings to Soviet citizens against the ideological effects of foreign contact; and the implications of the expulsion of three American tourists and the American air attaché. The file also includes a Radio Propaganda report titled "Soviet press steps up appeals for vigilance"; and a request from the British embassy in Moscow for two Joint Intelligence Bureau reports on Soviet industry.
