The Consul at Geneva (Gilbert) to the Secretary of State

42. Consulate’s 35, February 24, noon. Chaco Commission has informed Secretariat to the following effect, having received the replies of the two parties and subsequently having convoked their representatives in conference. The Commission found their points of view so divergent that it considered the chances of success of further negotiations too slight to justify its remaining any longer. The Commission announces its departure for Europe on March 15 from Montevideo on the Steamship Avila Star. Buero, however, will remain behind as special mandatory of the Commission to keep the latter informed, to maintain any contacts desired by the parties, and to represent it in any eventual negotiations.42

Secretariat is making this information public.
