Abstract

Remarks on: question of publicity for the Marshall Plan in France and American Embassy requests urging the French Government to carry out its obligations under the bilateral agreement to use its powers to favour such publicity, because of lack of knowledge among French public regarding the Plan,- talk with President Auriol, who believes the US is demanding more of an effort than his country can make in connection with the realisation of ECA objectives,- visit of Milton Katz, US representative to ECA regarding Franco-German trade agreement,- conversation with Robert Schuman and Averell Harriman regarding the "Superman Project"- the strengthening of the leadership in the OEEC by placing Paul-Henri Spaak in a position of real authority, and also on question of Saar and prospect of French Government leasing it for the use of the Saar coal mines, Bruce feel the French action was ill-timed but the German reaction was "arrogant and presumptous"
British opposition to relaxing the dual pricing system .
