Diary of Lester Knox Little

February 23, 1950

The Cecchi’s had E.C.A. staff for cocktails. After dinner, Foster Knight showed us his colored photographs of Korea and Hongkong. Conference with some of the staff re re Quirino’ s latest move — an appeal to America to give him a hand-out with no strings attached. Feeling among E.C.A. staff here is strongly opposed, and I concur 100%. I don’t want to see what happened in China repeated here.
