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.
