Editorial Note

During 1951, the Board of Directors of the Export-Import Bank authorized $1,000,000 credits to two Bolivian mining companies to finance the cost of machinery, supplies, and equipment in the United States for the expansion of tungsten production. The first credit, approved [Page 1183] November 1, was to Mauricio Hochschild, S. A. M. I. (824.10/11–251), and the second, approved December 19, was to the Bolivian Tin & Tungsten Mines Corporation (824.10/12–2051).
