The Ambassador in China (Stuart) to the Secretary of State

2327. Re proposed Sino-American survey for Chinese deposits of uranium and allied minerals, we November 23 suggested to Dr. Wong Wen-hao desirability of preventing papers thereon in Chinese hands falling into “unauthorized” hands. Wong indicated he appreciated our position and said he would take appropriate steps.

November 26 Wu Chao-hung, Vice Chairman of National Resources Commission, informed us he had been instructed by Wong personally to be responsible for papers and that he was taking them in few days to Taiwan.
