Hull Weighs Barter Deal with Germany

Download PDF for this date

Secretary of State Cordell Hull today had before him the draft of a barter agreement proposed by the Export-Import Bank for the trading of 500,000 bales of American cotton to Germany.

The proposed pact has been the target of an avalanche of criticism by many organizations, including the American Jewish Congress and the Non – Sectarian Anti – Nazi League, which claim it will invalidate the world-wide boycott being waged against German products.
