The Assistant Secretary of
State (Clayton) to the Acting Secretary of
Victory–185. From Clayton.
Admiral Land, Mr. Dunn, and I have discussed Polish seamen’s strike2 (reurtels Nos. 73 and 743) and decided that WSA should take action parallel to British; that is, haul down Polish flag, run up United States flag, offer to sign on same seamen, and indicate that the action is temporary for the emergency situation.
