The Secretary of State to the United States Delegation1


Tosec 553. For Under Secretary from Secretary. There is rising conern which found utterance at my hearing today with Foreign Relations Committee that vast amounts of war matériel from US will fall into hostile hands. I hope that you will have the opportunity to emphasize to French importance of cease-fire terms which will permit safeguarding or at least destroying this matériel.

Hearing as a whole went well and there was no expressed criticism of your return to Geneva.
