The Chargé in Czechoslovakia (Gittings) to the Secretary of State

26. My cipher telegram 23, March 24, 4 p.m.,38 and pertinent telegrams. Written note just received from Minister of Commerce asserts that an extra allowance of licenses over the regular 800 will be granted and to such extent as not to make worse former practice: for March [Page 700] 84 licenses, for April 140, with subsequent seasonal tendencies taken into consideration. As regards distribution among makes, the experience of previous years would be followed. Minister of Commerce stated in conversation I had when advancing American position that he was doing the utmost he could just now.
