March 31:

Meeting with Argentine Ambassador. He is going to Argentine [sic]. Invited Dean Atcheson [sic], Tom Connolly [sic] and Vandenberg. Told the Ambassador that we wanted friendly relations with his country, but that we also wanted compliance with agreements made at San Francisco and Mexico City. Informed him that there were still Nazi war criminals loose in his country. They should be rounded up and deported for trial.

He talked of Communism in Chili [sic], Brazil and Bolivia. It was intimated that Argentines [sic] compliance was the subject of conversation. He said that Communism is rife in Brazil.

I doubt if we accomplished anything. The Ambassador speaks terrible English. Said Argentine [sic] wanted to get along with us, etc.
