The Ambassador in Germany (Dodd) to the Secretary of State
[Received August 22—2:10 p.m.]
132. Department’s 99, August 19, 1 p.m. and 102, August 21, 5 p.m. Foreign Office and police authorities assure no further pressure for Mowrer’s immediate departure but we have urged him to leave as soon as he can in the interest of all concerned; it would be doubly unfortunate if he were to cover Nuremberg demonstration.
Inform Daily News that Mowrer’s August 11 story about high officials is considered violation of mutual understanding and let Colonel Knox54 know that we think further exploitation of Mowrer episode likely to do all news service men here harm.
