“April 5, 2 p.m. Your March 24, noon. I request authority to defer for the present effort to arrange radio schedule. The situation is not propitious for satisfactory adjustment of the question, and the urgent need of unrestricted radio facility for our naval vessels makes it advisable, in my opinion, to postpone suggested actions for the time being.”
2. The Legation has authorized deferring for the present effort to arrange radio schedule.
