Memorandun by the Deputy Director of the Executive Secretariat
   (Barnes) to the Staff Assistant to the Assistant Secretary of State
   for Near Eastern, South Asian, and African Affairs (Hemba)
CONFIDENTIAL                       [WASHINGTON,] January 18, 1952.
  Following his discussion with Ambassador Bowles the other day
the Secretary assured the Ambassador that he would help him push
his ideas on the economic program for India.' I pass this on so that the
appropriate people in NEA will be aware of the Secretary's interest in
this program and will be alert to the desirability of raising it to his
level as may seem desirable in the future.

have
an appointment with Ambassador Bowles, who was in Washington at that time
for consultations regarding U.S. policy toward India (611.91/1-1652).
