The Ambassador in France (Caffery) to the Secretary of State

top secret

723. Schuman tells me that he has given instructions to his representatives to do everything on their part to prepare for the introduction of the West mark in Berlin on March 10. However, he does not want announcement made thereof until the Security Council has disposed in one way or another of the neutral committee’s report which he assumes will be within the next ten days.
