  16. The President's News Conference on the Rumor of German Surrender  
April 28, 1945

THE PRESIDENT. Well, I was over here, as you can see, doing a little work, and this rumor
got started. I had a call from San Francisco, and the State Department called me. I just got in
touch with Admiral Leahy and had him call our Headquarters Commander in Chief in Europe,
and there is no foundation for the rumor. That's all I have to say.

Q. May we quote you?

THE PRESIDENT. Yes.

Q. Are you going to stand by?

THE PRESIDENT. I'm going to finish this work.

NOTE: President Truman's fourth news conference was held in his office at the White House at
10 p.m. on Saturday, April 28, 1945.
