President Ubico and Crisanto Sacasa have not yet determined method of recognition nor have they agreed upon draft of protocol regarding Central American conference and treaty revision. Minister says this last may not be concluded before January 25 and that Senator Sacasa may proceed to Tegucigalpa and return here later although date of departure has not yet been decided.
