The Secretary of State to the Minister in Yugoslavia (Lane)

30. Department’s no. 29, July 1, 3 p.m. There proves to be no lively interest on the part of the War and Navy Departments in the acquisition of a reserve stock of bauxite. There would be no purpose in your pressing the matter further therefore although this Government would be prepared to give consideration to any specific proposal the Yugoslav Government may wish to make.
