The Chargé in Czechoslovakia (Benton) to the Acting Secretary of State
[Received May 31—7:49 a.m.]
12. Referring to Department’s telegram No. 8, March 13, 5 p.m., and my despatch No. 993 of May 23rd.6 Negotiations between Canty7 and [Page 144] Czechoslovak authorities in progress last few days for regulation film situation have broken down since latter are unwilling to make any concessions whatsoever. Canty is recommending that American companies remain out of this market for another year. In this I concur since further representations diplomatic or otherwise would seem useless at this time. Please see Canty’s telegram No. 32 to Commerce. Reporting fully by mail.
