Your 147 [148], July 25, 11 p.m. Department understands there have been conversations between Argentina and Brazil with a view to preventing hostilities in the Chaco and that Argentine Government took position that they could be most helpful for the present in seconding the efforts of the neutral representatives in Washington and in trying to make the Bolivians and Paraguayans remain in the conference here.
