The Ambassador in Argentina (Weddell) to the Secretary of State

129. From Gibson. Saavedra Lamas states that he has received a telegram from the Argentine representative to the League of Nations informing him that the Chairman of the League Chaco Committee desired to accredit an observer to the Chaco Peace Conference.

Saavedra Lamas asserts that, without waiting to consult the Conference, he replied that he would not be prepared to entertain any such request, apparently on the ground that the Conference was completely independent of the League.
