The Ambassador in the Soviet Union ( Smith ) to the Acting Secretary of State

1411. Kosmos 47. From Marshall: My Kosmos 4346 on abandonment of ammunition refers. Change last paragraph as follows:

(a) Insert after fourth word the phrase “if inquiry is made” and (b) delete all words after “national government”.

I do not want a press release and believe our reply in event question arises should be forceful and direct. [Marshall]
