.quickly because they want to get the Agreement negotiated before the
Peace Treaty is ratified. General Hamblen mentioned his problem
with G-3 of Army, which wants to take another crack at the draft
Administrative Agreement, but it was decided that this was a matter

Memorandum by the Consultant to the Secretary (Dulles) to the
                        Secretary of State
:SECRET                         [WVASHINGTON,] December 28, 1951.
   This supplements my memorandum of December 27, 19511 with
 reference to Prime Minister Yoshida's letter to me on his Govern-
 ment's attitude toward China. Senators Sparkman and Smith do not
 know that Yoshida has actually written me, and I only learned of it
 on December 26 and do not yet have the actual text. But the Senators
 do know from Yoshida himself that Yoshida was prepared to take
 the position presumably expressed in that letter. It would therefore
 be extremely awkward, from the standpoint of Senate ratification,
 if the Executive as a result of the Churchill talks, were to agree to
 seek to get Yoshida to retreat from the position toward China which
 he expressed to the two Senators and which no doubt they will report
 to their colleagues.
