The Chargé in China ( Atcheson ) to the Secretary of State

1624. Embassy’s 1550, August 24. Chairman has informed me that his resignation has not been accepted, that he again told Dr. Kung he would carry on until successor is named and that he accordingly expects to continue in the post for some time. He stated also that question of revision continues to be discussed and he intimated that he was strongly opposing revision, including any revision which would eliminate foreign members of the Board. He mentioned several times that the “Board has no power”.

Please inform Treasury.

Repeated Calcutta for Adler’s information.
