Download PDF for this date

Secretary of State George C. Marshall has not yet taken action on the recent request of Senator Robert Wagner of New York for publication by the State Department of documents in the Department’s files on the ex-Mufti of Jerusalem.

Asked at his press conference what action the Department was planning on Wagner’s request, formulated in a letter to the Secretary, Mr. Marshall said he would have to look at the papers, since he did not recall the matter.
