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

333. Reference Department’s 129, January 26. To date Embassy has not been approached. Local organizations and individuals have appealed to Government to reply to United States Government proposal and Ollivier is reported to have pressed for a decision but without results. He is reported to have described it “as a delicate political matter to which the President62 is giving his personal attention”. However Stewart63 has informed Embassy that he is hopeful of early arrangements which will permit movement of larger tonnage of newsprint.
