The Acting Secretary of State to the Amba88ador in Germany (Dodd)
No. 724                              WASHINGTON, January 4,1937.
  Sm: With reference to the Department's instruction No. 711 [710],
dated December 11, 1936,18 transmitting copies of two notes addressed
to the German Embassy December 8, 1936,19 there are transmitted
for your information copies of the translation of the German Em-
bassy's reply, dated December 16, 1936,20 and of a statement released
to the press December 23, 1936, by the Treasury Department, concern-
ing the application of Section 303 of the Tariff Act of 1930,21 in con-
nection with imports from Germany.
  The Department's note of December 8, 1936, transcribing to the
German Embassy a statement by the Treasury Department, stated
that it was believed that on receiving the German Government's con-
firmation of the transcribed statement of the Treasury's understand-
ing of the German Government's intentions, the Treasury Depart-
ment would wish to make public the contents of the Department's
note to the German Embassy, since the subject matter is of interest
to many persons. It will be observed, however, that the statement
issued to the press December 23, 1936, omits certain parts of the
Treasury statement communicated December 8, 1936, notably the
  "It is further understood by the Treasury Department, that the
German Government will not permit, in respect of German products
which are to be exported directly or indirectly to the United States
pursuant to agreements entered into after August 2, 1936, and which
are subject to ordinary duties upon entry into this country, the use of
' Instruction was that when an application was made for a visa as a tempo-
rary visitor to the United States, care should be taken to ascertain that
intended to leave voluntarily at end of visit and that he would be able to
to some other country when he did depart. No visa was to be granted to a
nonimmigrant, under section 3 (2) of Immigration Act of 1924, whose passport
or other travel document was not valid for his entry into some country other
than the United States.
