Memorandum by the Chief of the Division of the American Republics (Duggan)

At a meeting at the White House yesterday, attended by the Federal Loan Administrator and Mr. Welles, the President requested Mr. Jones to discuss the Brazilian steel project with Mr. Stettinius, of the United States Steel Corporation, with a view to having the matter reconsidered by the United States Steel Corporation. Along with that, Mr. Jones will discuss the project with certain high officials of the Inland Steel Company the latter part of this week.
