The Chargé in Argentina ( Cable ) to the Secretary of State


27. Department’s telegram No. 11, dated March 9. During an interview with the Foreign Minister on March 4, I informed him of the attitude set forth in Department’s 9, March 1. The Foreign Minister said that as yet President Alvear had signed no contract, but that he would not fail to invite the attention of the President and Minister of Marine to the substance of our conversation. Since the Government has been informed of the attitude of the United States, it does not appear for the present that any further steps can be taken. Mr. Hill, the vice president of the Bethlehem Steel Company, who is now here, is fully aware of all measures taken by the Embassy.
