FROM: THOW.LAS J. DEEGAN, JR. e f' \_
So that you may be conversant with the visits I made key: Lone among '
publhhers, political and public opinion leaders, et al .. ;O-day visit
to Western Europe a couple of weeks ago, I am sending-1he following high-
lishta together with the verifax copies of the excellent preas in the various
cities I visited which our BUl Humphreys was able to secure for tho Fair.
The report on the negotiations with the Vatican I have made separately to the
Executive Committee at our meeting on December 18th, as you know, and,
in turn, you and John Brunini and I have had conversations regarding this,
so I feel it would serve no purpose in this memorandum to waste your time
with a further accounting of those discussions. The trip also was utilized
at yours and Bill Berns• request to make perional visits to the offices and
stringer contacts of the Pat Dolan Associates, public relations firm of Lon-
don. This has been reported to you, Oeneral Potter and Bill Berns in our
meeting in my office on my return and for purposes of keeping this memoran-
dum succinct, I see no need to repeat those findings here. (Note: A aeparate
memorandum including recommendations of the Deegan Company is being
prepared for you, Bill Berns, General Potter and Mr. Mosea.)
Following is the breakdown by cities:
ROME
MILAN
Cesari Zapull, the financial editorialist of n Messaggero.
Vittori Oorresio, the Rome correspondent and editorial page
editor of La Stampa of Turin. (Mr. Oorresio is the equi-
valent of Arthur Krock in the United States and is considered
one of the twelve most influential men in the whole of Italy.)
Zapuli is looking forward to a visit from you as is Gorreeio.
Bill Humphreys is, naturally, aware of this and will make
the arrangements.
Since this engagement occurred on the day I waa fogged down
in London, Bill Humphreys, who bad gone down to Milan from
Paris, handled the visits with Dante Ferrari, top editorialist of
n Sole, and Dr. Umberto Frisoni, chief reporter of Cor-
riere della Sera.
(Your representative in Italy, John Kennedy, with whom I bad
two visits while in Rome, is familiar with the foregoing.}

Ecbo de
La Bourse (this is the Wall Street Journal equivalent in Belgium);
M. Cirunebaum, editor, Le Pet.;.ple; Mme. Knapen, economic
editor, La Metropole, another leading financial daily in Bruuels.
In addition, I invited a group of public opinion leaders, pub-
lishing executives and political office holders for cocktails at
the Palace Hotel. These included our mutual friend M. L.
Loncin, a director of exhibitions and fairs for the Minister of
Economic Affairs of the Belgium government; M. s. Legreve,
director of the Bank of Brussels; M. F. A. Huybrechte, director
of the Banque de la Societe Generale de Belgique; M. Materne,

trator, Union Miniere du Haut Katanga.
I dined with and spent the evening with the man who directed the
public relations for the Brussels Fair, Eric Cypres, from whom
I got an immense amount of useful information which will be
conveyed to Bill Berns.

to bring about. He arranged a meeting for me with some key
business and public opinion leaders in West Berlin including
the following: Dr. Kurt Schlessinger, director of fairs and
exhibitions for the West Germ<A.n government in Bonn; Igon Bahr,
director of communications for the City of West Berlin; Herr
Uhlstein, director general of the Springe chain of newspapers
in West Germany. This is the most influential newspaper or-
ganization in all of Western Europe. Mr. Uhlstein makes his
headquarters in Berlin and his Herr Bezold is the executive
officer under Herr Uhlstein in running such distinguished Ger-
man newspapers with circulation throughout the entire continent
as Die W'elt; Handelsblett; Frankfurter Algemeine, and others.
(Note: It was Herr Schlessinger's judgment that West Berlin,
which he feels very likely will participate in the New York Fair
as a city, not be pressured until after the opening of the Seattle
Fair in which they are participating. He said on the basis of
the 117 est Berlin exhibit acceptance in Seattle, he would be in
a better position to make a firm recommendation to his superiors.
General Clay volunteered the fact that he thought West Berlin
should exhibit at the Fair. )
It is also important to note the West Berlin option on a Flushing
Meadow Park site expired on December 31, 1961. Herr
Schlessinger feels that the appropriate man for the Fair to make
contact with is Senats Director Albertz to advise him in an
appropriate way that the expiration date has been reached and,
if the Fair Corporation feels it wants to extend the option date,
that is a decision for the Fair to make. Schlessinger also feels
that there should be an approach made to the various German
states -- Bavaria, North Rhineland, Hesse, etc. He said they
all operated autonomously with separate budgets and it was his
feeling that if one of these came through, the others would follow.
DUSSELDORF Dr. W. Ruder, editor, Industriekurier; Dr. A. Krumbiegel,
director, Novea von Dusseldorf, the German Trade Fair Or-
ganization; Dr. Veitz and Herr Rosskopf, Krupp Maschinen-
fabriken; Dr. K. Nitzsche, editor, the Rheinische Post.
(Here, too, I brought a group of about 25 or 30 top public opinion
leaders, publishers, etc. together for a presentation of the
World's Fair film, which I also used in the other stops I made,
and a coc.lLtail reception.)
In addition to the above, I also visited Frankfurt with the express purpose of
going to the offices of Patrick Dolan Associates in accordance with our earlier

FROM: CHARLESPOLETTI
FRANCE
Ambassador Gavin arranged a very helpful lunch attended by heads of
France representatives !rom Ministries of Finance,
Industry and Economic Affairs, and industrialists -- 18 in all. He is ready
to assist in any other way. Result: a letter was sent to the Minister· of
Finance who on behalf of the French Government is stating that the Govern-
ment approves France organizing industrialists for a pavilion.
Minister Reinstein and Alexander Davit of the Embassy have been of great
help.
This enables France to move forward.. Called on the new
President of France Amt!rique, Mr. Moreau Neret who is also President of
Credit Lyonnais. Neret and Bouilhet will have luncheon with five or six key
industrialists.
Also, on January 18th France is giving Ambassador Burden
a big party in his capacity of President of the France Society in
New York City. Have arranged to have a dozen industrialists invited to that
dinner.
Moreau Neret is top notch and enthusiastic. Fond souvenirs of the 1939
Fair including the shapely damsels of the Aquacade.
Bouilhet is a tower of strength. Returned early from his vacation in
Switzerland to see me. Mlle. Mercedes Cusset and Marquis de Messey of
France worldng hard for us. Laurence Harris is doing a fine job.
In the past we have had the approval of the Quai d'Orsay but the opposi-
tion of the Quai Branly -the financial and economic side. The chief· opponent
has been Georges Pierre Leroy, Directeur General du Bureau des Foires et
Expositions of the Ministry of Economic Affairs. But now he is well disposed.
So much so that he has asked his representative in New York City,
Mr. Roland D'Albis, to cooperate with us. He will also serve as contact
point for France His card is enclosed. He is attached to the
Office of the French Commercial Counselor. He is returning to New York
City in about ten days and Beach should call him and invite him to visit
Flushing, et cetera. He told me he would gladly do it.

Also saw Deeqan's representative in Paris a couple of times and he
presented me to several people interested in publicity aspects. · I like parti-
cularly the distribution of a film through Cyrille Maldnsky, Executive
· Secretary of the Association France-Etats Unis. I believe he is assisted by
United States funds. Deegan and Berns should review his proposal. · Card
enclosed.
The boss of Maxim-'s, Mr. Vaudable, js very interested in having a
restaurant in the French pavilion. The President of the French Line, with
whom I bad a qood talk, is keen. Air France prefers joining the French
pavilion provided it is a big one. So we are reserving the 50, 000 square
foot parcel.
Also discussed with Bouilhet the selection of an architect, and its
urgency. Arranged that he will retain the architect who regularly does the
work for the Bureau des Faires et Expositions, and such should be pleasing
to Mr. Leroy.
I qave France March lst, 1962 as the target date to sign the
contract. As President Kennedy says: We are moving forward and we are
confldent there will be a qood French Pavilion !

FROM: CHARLES POLETTI
SUBJECT: Report on Trip to Czechoslovalda
Milano,
January 22, 1Q62
Until December 1961 the State Department advised the Fair
that it would be inappropriate for a Delegation to go to Prague to present
the official invitation. The reason seemed to be the disagreement between
the United States and Czechoslovakia with respect to reciprocity in trade
fairs and expositions and, more particularly, the Fair at Bruno.
The Delegation, consisting of myself, Mrs. Poletti and
Dr. Marcel Duriaux, arrived in Prague on Monday, January 15, 1962.
We were met at the airport by John Milton Richmond of the American
Embassy and also by Helena Sokolikov§., official guide provided by the
Czech Government.
In the afternoon, the guide took us on a tour of Prague. We
dined alone at the Hotel Aleron. Good food. Beds not so good because
they lack springs and apparently the rather tired mattresses are happy
to rest on boards.
On Tuesday morning, we went to the American Embassy for
a briefing. We were taken to a special area which is specially guarded
and protected against bugging. The Ambassador, Edward Wailes, was
in Germany and the Counselor of the Embassy, Jack M. Fleischer, assisted
by John M. Richmond and Peter F. Warker, gave us the briefing. Much
stress was placed on the reciprocity dispute. I told them I didn't know the
story and, after all, it wasn't my problem because the State Department
had advised me that a Delegation could go to Prague, et cetera. I added
that they should not be so concerned because the Czech Embassy in
Washington had advised our office in New York the week before that the
Government would not participate but that we advised the Czech Embassy
that I was going to Prague anyway.
At the briefing it was explained to us that the official invita-
tion should not be presented to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs but to the
Czech Chamber of Commerce and the one appointment which had been
made, namely with Dr. Karel Duda, had to be cancelled. It was agreed
- 2 -
that efforts would be made to set up appointments with the Chamber of
Commerce, the Ministry of Foreign Trade, and with Rapid (the agency
which handles publicity and information).
Had lunch at the hotel. In the aiternoon, the guide took us
sightseeing. For dinner, the guide brought us to what she called a good
restaurant, and it was. We asked the guide many questions, including
a basic apolitical question: Are you married? She said she was but her
husband was in Cuba and had been for two months working on some trade
problems. So I suggested that Duriaux was a ready and willing substitute.
She had a good sense of humor and played along with the idea.
On Wednesday (January 17th), we presented the official
invitation to Oldrich Novy, First Vice President of the Chamber of
Commerce of CL:echoslovak.ia. The President, Josef Horn, was in Copen-
hagen on government business. We spent more than an hour explaining
the Fair and Novy and his associate were much interested. He said
nothing about his Government having decided not to participate. The
Chamber put up the pavilion at Brussels 1958 which won first prize.
In the evening we went to the home of Mr. Fleischer for
dinner. He had invited several Czechs but he didn't know whether any
would show up. To his surprise, several showed, but without wives. I
did not take the absence of wives as a personal affront. Fleischer was
pleased that the Czechs had come and we had a relaxed, gay evening. It
seems that when the opportunity presents itself, Scotch whisky is preferred
even above Slivovitz ! We had a good chance to talk about the Fair with
Dr. Karel Duda of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ing. Vilem Havelka,
President of Rapid, Mr. Novy, as well as with the two top men of the
Bruno Fair, Mr. Karel Riha and Ing. Karel Svoboda.
On Thursday (January 18th) we had a conference with Mr.
Vladimir Babacek, Chief of the Department of Foreign Trade, and with
Mr. Ota Kykal, Chief of the North American Section of the Department
of Foreign Trade. Babacek was not exactly friendly and wanted to exploit
my visit by several caustic remarks about lack of trade with the U.S.A.
and complained that the U.S. A. did not give Czechoslovakia the benefits of
the most favored nation clause. My answer was simple: I just went on
talking about the World's Fair. Twice, Babacek told me his Government
had decided not to participate and I quickly answered that I knew that and
it was quite OK with us, and then added that we appreciated that the Czech
Government was anxious to learn what was going on in the U.s. A. and
hence I was explaining in detail to him this great event of 1964-1965. I
left brochures and Progress Reports and advised him our Embassy would
deliver subsequent Progress Reports.
- 3 -
On Thursday (January 18th), also had a conference with Ing.
Vilem Havelka who couldn't have been more gracious or more interested.
In accordance with well established practice, he had an associate present.
I admired an old print of Prague on r..is wall and the next day I found it in
my hotel room with a nice note from Havelka. Also found a set of crystal
cocktail glasses which were sent to me by Oldrich Navy.
On Thursday evening our guide took us to see movies of the
Brussels Fair, including the Laterna Magika. The latter is a beautiful
fantasy, cleverly done, and it was part of the Czech pavilion at Brussels.
The whole thing was practically devoid of propaganda. Afterwards we
dined with the guide in a Czech bistro - only fair.
I forgot, almost. On Thursday late afternoon we drove out
about 50 kilometers to a cooperative farm. We were well received by the
manager and the members of the executive committee. They served us
with plates of sausage, salami, cheese, meat and lots of white wine, while
we asked questions. Aiter,we visited t'JJo large barns where they were
completing the milldng (done by machine). Good looking stock. Have re-
duced TB from 80% to 30%. Very large cows resembling Hereford steers,
but they weren't !
On Friday our guide escorted us to Pilsen to visit the famous
brewery. An executive who talked excellent English took us through the
plant for an hour. The process is not mechanized but more efficient, I am
sure, than when beer was first made there in 1295. We defended the honor
of the United States by the following 3 large steins by Duriaux,
3 by Poletti and 2 large ones by Mrs. Poletti who hates beer. On our
we visited a magnificent castle
1
Karlstein., built by Charles IV.
Our Ambassador and his wife are delightful. They had us to
lunch on Thursday after their return from Germany. The Embassy resi-
dence is grandiose in proportions
1
but each room is exquisite -
draperies., magnificent boiserie.
On Saturday morning the Ambassador and Mrs. Wailes came
to the airport and since our plane was late
1
we spent one and a half hours
together.
The Ambassador feels that the State Department is putting too
much stress on reciprocity. He believes that we were wise in not overselling
and it is his judgment that Czechoslovakia will come to the Fair.
- 4.-
Strangely enough, Babacek evidenced interest in Lincoln
Center and the possibility of a Czech performance there. Ames should
follow this up.
May I state that Dr. Duriaux was most helpful and it was a
pleasure for Mrs. Poletti and me to be with him. He resisted temptation.

NEW YORK 20, N.Y.
Governor Poletti wants the proper climate developed in Europe
to auiet him in selling Western European countries to participate
in tbe Fair.
He engaged the services of Patrick Dolan Associates to make a
proposal for achieving this and paid a preliminary fee. The proposal
baa now been submitted.
In view of Ciovernor'Poletti'a strong endorsement of this special
project, the executive committee should approve it for a period of one
year. The executive committee wants to do everything Governor Poletti
says he needs to achieve maximum participation in the Fair by foreign
governments.
The work of the Dblan organization should come under the general
supervision of the Deegan organization and particularly BUl Humphrey•
in Paris.
This is iA keeping with the original resolution of the executive
committee and board of directors in fixing responsibility for public
relations wii':h the Thomas J. Deegan Company.

TO: ROBERT MOSES
FROM: CHARLES POLETTI
SUBJECT: Report on Trip to Japan, January 24 to January 31, 1962
At American Embassy had separate conferences with the following:
Ambassador Reischauer.
Minister Edward Doherty--who is Economic Counselor.
Chadwick Johnson and Andrew Wardlaw. both Economic Attaches
and who ha.ve been on the World's Fair job during past year.
Allen Chase--Economic Attache who has just been put on the World's
Fair job. He is. enthusiastic and eager to help. I worked principally
throuqh him during my stay.
Dotson--Aqriculture Attache who accompanied me on my visit to
Minister Kono. Had lunch with him, and he confirmed that Kono is very
powerful in the Cabinet.
Chase Manhattan Bank--J"ohn J. Kelly, Vice President in Tokyo, had
been advised by New York office of my visit, and he was very friendly and
helpful. Throuqh him and his Japanese assistant started mald.nq
appointments With Masamichi Yamaqiwa, the Governor of the Bank of Japan,
and with the top officials of JETRO. All this served to impress aJtd activate
the American Embassy. And on my own I arra.nqed immediate appointment
with Governor of Tokyo, Honorable Ryotaro Azuma.
In the Japanese Government had meetings with:
Zenta.ro Kosa.ka, Minister of Foreign Affairs. Favorably disposed.
Left with him three copies of contract, already signed by me. Suggested
I see Masayoshi Ohhira, Director General of the Cabinet Secretariat,
because he plans agenda for cabinet meetings and because he is close to
Prime Minister Hayato lkeda. By special escort and pass, he got me to
office of Obhira in the Diet which is in session.
Masayoshi Ohhira gave me lots of time for a thorough presentation,
including cost estimates and provisions of the contract.
-1-
Ich1ro Kono --Minister of Agriculture and Forestry. I had to
insist with American Embassy to see him, but Paolino Gerll and
Mrs. Arai's sister, Mrs. Mitsui, with whom Jean and I had lunched
had informed me that he was a powerful leader. Kono was 1n our
corner and volunteered to talk to Prime Minister and other ministers
and get the problem before the Cabinet.
Eisaku Sato -- Minister of International Trade and Industry. He
is a new minister and was uninformed of the nature of the World's Fair,
th1nk1nq of it as a trade fair. He was strongly aqainst participation
because of the heavy expense involved. I stayed with him nearly an hour
and by the end of it had straightened him out. He was impressed by my
suggestion that the Fair transcended his Ministry and that the Government
of Japan should create an interministerial committee and obtain special
budget appropriations and that he should not think that the funds had to
come from his regular ministerial budget.
FuUama ... Minister of Economic Planning. Reserved in his
expressions.
Morisa.gro Seki, Director of Economic Affairs in Ministry of
Foreign Affairs. He gave me a tough time and stated flatly he was
opposed to it. Here aqat.n I discovered he thought of the ]air as a trade
fair. Spent a long time with him, and at end of conference he criticized
the two assistants because he said he was badly briefed as to the purpose
of our Fair. 'The two assistants were S. Wada and T. Hashimoto.
Iwao Yokota-- Executive Director of Japan Tourist Association.
Frank H. Agt!i, Manager of the Foreign Department o:f the Association
was also present. I urged Yokota to get involved 1n the planning of the
J'apa.nese pavilion •
.Te.Uchi Nagamura -- Vice President of JETRO. 'nle President was
out of town. Two directors, Koichi Suzuki (who was very familiar with
the Fair) and Hlsashi Murata (who was not favorably disposed), were
also present. Told them of our contacts in New York City with Fujise of
J'ETRO. Naqamura stated flatly he was impotent until received a.
directive from MITI {i.e. , Ministry of International Trade and Industry)
and that MITI was impotent until Cabinet approved.
Norman Yamada -- Japan Ad Board Company which is the agency
which plans and constructs the actual exhibits.
R. Nakagawa -- Chief of the Promotion Division of the Foreign
Trade in MIT!.
-2-
Also talked about the World's Fair to:
Takashi Komatsu-- Vice President of the American Japan
Society.
T. Inumaru -- President of Japan Hotel Association. Hls son
graduated from Cornell University ... School of Hotel Mana.gemenL
ID.saakira Kano -- interested in U.S. achievements 1n slum
clearance, housing, planning. Gave him a note to call on a kindred
spirit, Robert Moses.
American Express Regional Conference -- made a presentation
to the managers of Far East and Southeast Asia of the glories of the
New York World's Fair!
Conclusion: Since the very effective visit of our delegation
one year ago, the Government of Japan has done absolutely nothing.
And during this period the contribution made by the American Embassy
cannot easlly be discerned. Olr visit has stirred both the Government
of Japan and American Embassy. 'The contracts are in the hands of
the Minister of Foreign Affairs and several ministers have been briefed
so that we may hope to achieve speedy approval by the Cabinet and
the execution of the contract.

SUBJECT: Report on Hong Kong, February 5- February 11, 1962
My objective has been to assist John C. Y. KAO who has signed
an a.qreement with the World's Fair for a Hong Kong Pavilion. My im-
pression is that his task is not a simple one.
I introduced him all around the U. S. Consulate General and together
had conferences re certificates of origin and so forth with the men on the
commercial side and with representative of the U.S. Treasury.
J'ohn 0. Negroponte of the Consulate has been most helpful and will
contbme to be. Negroponte attended the meetings I had with businessmen
and H. K. government officials.
Had an opportunity to explain in detail the Fair as well as Ka.o' s
plans for Hong Kong Pavilion to our Consul General, Marshall Green.
He assured me of his cooperation. :Mrs. Poletti and I had a delightful
luncheon at his residence called "The Peak", located at 3 Barker Road,
H.K.
Gave a radio broadcast in which urged all interested parties to get
in touch with Kao.
Meeting with Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce attended
by W. C. G. Knowles, President of the Chamber (address is Union House,
9th Floor, Hong Kong}, and also President of an old firm of the Far East,
Butterfield and Swire. Also present were .T. A. A. Knott, Secretary, and
S. S. Gordon. Arranged that the next Bulletin of the Chamber would report
the Hong Kong Pavilion and that interested firms should contact Kao.
Meeting with Director of the Chinese Manufacturers Association.
:(address is L1 Po Chun Chambers, Connaught Road, Hong K o n g ~
About thirty directors were present. g.s. Chu is the Secretary.
After the meeting we all had drinks to wish a prosperous New Year to
each other. The fire crackers have been vibrantly busy Sunday, Monday,
Tllesday and Wednesday and so have the fire brigade! The Chinese news-
paper reported - according to Kao - that I clasped my hands in the correct
fashion and uttered the correct Chinese words, meaning may the New Year
be a prosperous one for you. They took streams of photographs; they
compete successfully with the Japanese in this respect.
-1-
~ ·· Meeting with the General Committee of the Federation of Bong Kong
Indllstrles :ln its board room in the United Chinese Bank Building, Hong Kong.
Enormous table around which were seated thircy distinguished business men -
obviously the elite -and acting like the elite. Never having attended a meeting
of the Board of Directors of the Union League Club, I am unable to make any
comparisons. May I add that the President is a Chinese upon whom the Queen
has bestowed the ennobling title of "Sir". It would have been a discordant note
had I diwlged the fact that I was an 0. B. E. ! Anyway, Sir Shek Lun Chu
formally stated to me that his Federation would cooperate with the Fair. Kao
is obviously not a member of the club.
Meeting with the Commerce and Industry Department of the Hong Konq
Government. Office is located in Fire Brigade Building, H. K. Talked to
D. M. Sellers and to Derek Marsh. I wanted the Government to know about
Kao and his plans. They stated that unofficially their office and the Infor-
mation and Publicity office of tbe Government would assist and cooperate with
Kao.
:My other actiVities:
1) Taking care of a damn cold I got on the BOAC Comet from Tokyo
to Hong Kong. Jean has been nursing me and I still haven't gotten rid of it.
2) Tastin<gJmore varieties of Chinese cooking. But we have managed
to escape the snakes even though one friendly guy insisted they help cure
a cold. So what?
S) Shopping. Good fun. But the tailors are out of touch with American
politics and they simply cannot understand why Poletti doesn't buy a beauti-
ful VICUNA overcoat!
February 10, 1962
P. S. This is the Chinese Year of the Tiger! Maybe some of our New York
boys had better come out here.

REPORT ON CAMBODIA
February 12-15, 1962
Calls on officials of the United States
Hon. William c. Trimble- Ambassador
c. Robert Moore - Deputy Chief of Mission
Robert c. Parke - Economic Counselor
Briq. General Edward C. D. Sherrer - Chief of MAAG
Colonel Carroll T. Newton- MAAG
Calls on officials of Government of Cambodia
Hon. Son Sann - Minister of State for Finance and National Economy
and Governor of the National Bank of Cambodia.
Discussed with him time schedule, architect, inter-
ministerial committee, fine site reserved, namely
Block 32 Lot 7. Detailed consideration of cost
estimates. Left with him the contracts for Block 32
Lot 7. Liked the site. · The Minister explained the
contract had to be approved at a meeting of Council
of Ministers and assured me he would present it at
next meeting. Very intelligent and active type.
Hon. Dy Bath .. Secretary of State for National Economy
Present at the conference was Mr. Ker Nol - Directeur
des Bureaux du de l'Economie Nationale-
who had in his hands the dossier which included our cost
estimates sent to Cambodia by Ambassador Nong Kimny.
Both Sath and Nol requested that we send them data in
French. Progress Report, etc. in English not a bit
useful. They know only French. Specifically asked for
regulations :.on building in French. Have previously
written to Beach that we must prepare all this in French
and in Spanish, otherwise it will be difficult for non-
English speaking countries to adhere to our time schedule.
Did furnish them and all other officials with the time
schedule in French and they were impressed.
- 2-
Hon. Tep Phan - Minister of State for Plans and also Governor of Phnom Penh.
He has achieved many public projects throughout the nation.
He is responsible for all the wide avenues, clearance of a
lot of wooden shacks and straw huts along the banks of the
Tonle Sap and Mekong Rivers. Has even built several parks
and a playground. In short, he has drive and imagination.
I baptized bim the Cambodian Bob Moses. He liked the site
and suggested I confer with his architect. Feels the cost is
high. Told him of possibility of a small entrance fee.
Mr. Vann Molyvan- Architect who has done several new buildings for the GOC
and who will do the Cambodian pavilion. Alert fellow. Knows
of Ed Stone, Wallace Harrison and Ero Saarinen and their
works. Studied in Paris. Married to a SWiss girl who works
for the U.N. Technical Mission (under David Owen) in Phnom
Penh. Anxious to learn of the architect for the French pavilion.
So ami!
Discussed time schedule, site, cost estimates, Anghor Wat..
Seemed excited by the task ahead of him.
Visit to Siem Reap
Ambassador Nong Kimny suggested a visit because he believes
the Cambodian pavilion could incorporate some parts of the temples. Saw
.Anqhor Wat, Anghor Thom, Bayon, Banteai Srei (a jewel, small and in pink
sandstone and laterite and means the "Citadel of Women") and Preah IO:lan.
Stayed overnight at Auberge des Temples.
In Phnom Penh visited the National Museum which has some
of the statuary and carvings found at Anghor Wat.
Social Functions
Cocktail party - Home of Robert B. Parke
Luncheon -Home of Deputy Chief of Mission
LWlcheon - Residence of U. s. Ambassador
Dinner - Given by Prince Sa.mdech Norodom Sihanouk
at Royal Palace in honor of Mr. and Mrs.
John D. Rockefeller.
- 3-
Though favored by four wives, the Prince had not one of them at
the dinner. But be did take care of himself by' having Blanchette on his right
and Jean on his left. I drew the wife of the Minister of Finance. She had a
good sense of humor and we gurgled in French -all through the Eau d'Evian,
Riesling, Moulin a Vent and Moet Chandan Brut.
The Prince was in jovial spirits. He read a tribute in English to
the guests of honor and ended by wishing well to Mr. Rodkefeller and his
Mistress. John responded beautifully and with deep feeling.
After the dinner we walked a couple hundred feet to another building
of the Royal Grounds and here we were treated to a bit of the Royal Ballet. The
two pieces were the Tep Monorom Ballet and The Legend of Preah Baing. The
Prince graciously explained to us in English what was going on. Unlike the days
of the Kings of Anghor Wat who apparently adored their Apsaras naked to the
waist, these ballet dancers were covered to their chins. Things have changed
in good old Cambodia !
Conclusion
At the dinner at the Royal Palace reviewed with the Finance Minister
the great help of an admission fee. He is impressed by this. Told me that the
task of the pavilion has been handed to Tep Phan and this is all to the good. He
again assured me the matter would be brought before the Council of Ministers.
I urged our Embassy to keep applying the pressure. The GOC budget is on the
basis of the calendar year. The first payment cannot be made until January 1963.
I recommended to both Son Sann and Tep Phan that they budget over the years
1963,.1964 and 1965, but that the GOC must sign the contract now.
We should reserve Block 32 Lot 7 for Cambodia.

TO: THE MEMBERS OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
FROM: CHARLESPOLETTI
A good many members of the Board of Directors have been
exceedingly helpful to the International Division and we are grateful to
each of them.
We would appreciate hearing from any Board member who
can be helpful to us in the follo'IN'ing:
FRANCE
The Comite France-Amerique and Senator Jacques Baumel have been
pushing very hard in France and we are assured that there will be a French
Pavilion with the participation of the City of Paris, ten of the large
tries, and Maxim's Restaurant. It has been impossible for us to reach
General De Gaulle on a direct appeal. Senator Baumel, when he left the
Offices of the Fair, promised me that he would talk to him. We would
like to know if any member of the Board has a direct connection with
General De Gaulle, and could communicate to him the importance of
enlisting his support of a French Pavilion.
We would also appreciate any member of the Board commun.icating
with any of the large industries in France to urge them to participate in
the French Pavilion. A person who we are told is influential is GeorgP.s
Pompidou, Director General of Rothschild Bank.
NIGERIA
Despite a lot of efforts, we have not yet been able to obtain the parti-
cipation of Nigeria.
We would knowing if any member of the Board has a good
approach to any member of the Government of Nigeria, or to any impor-
tant banking or business firm which, in turn, could influence the
Government.

THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
TBARSIUTTINO
A PROPOSED SUPPLEMENTAL APPROPRIATION FOR THE FISCAL
YEAR 1962 IN THE AMOUNT OF $25 MILLION FOR THE DEPART-
MENT OF COMMERCE FOR PARTICIPATION IN THE NEW YORK
WORLD'S FAIR
MARcH 13, 1962.-Referred to the Committee on Appropriations and ordered
to be printed
rrHI.; WHITE HousE,
JWashingtun, March 13, 19U;!.
The SPEAKER OF THE HousE oF REPRESENTATIVES.
Sm: I have the honor to transmit herewith for the consideration of
the Congress a proposed supplemental appropriation for the fiscal
year 1962 in the amount of $25 million for the Department of Com-
merce for participation in the New York World's Fair.
The bas1c purpose of the New York \Vorld's Fair is to help achieve
"Peace thro11gh understanding," its major theme being "Man's
Achievements in an Expanding Universe." Sixty-six nations and
world organizations, including. the Soviet Union, have notified the
fair that they will exhibit. Thirty States have expressed their intent
to _participate, and most other States are expected- to be represented.
The potential of this fair for promoting international good will and
understanding is apparent. I believe participation in the fair by the
Federal Government is essential. The theme "Challenge to Great-
ness," by a Citizens' Advisory Committee established by
Secretary Hodges, will enable us to present to the world not a boastful
picture of our unparalleled progress, but a. picture of democracy-
Its problems, its and its freedoms.
The details of this proposed a.pproJ?natiOn and the reasons for its
submission at this time are set forth m the attached letter from the
Director of the Bureau of the Budget. I urge enactment of this
proposal.
Respectfully yours,
JoaN KENNEDY.
ExECUTIVE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT,
BUREAU OF THE BUDGET,
Washington, D.C., March 9, 1962.
THE PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SIR: I have the honor to submit herewith for your consideration a
proposed supplemental ttppropriation for the fiscal year 1962 in the
amount of $25 million for the Department of Commerce, as follows:
DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE
GENERAL ADIIIINISTRATlON
PARTICIPATION IN NEiV YOBK WORLD'S FAIR
For expenses necessary to provide for United Stales participation in the New York
World's Fair, as authorized by the provisions of the Act of September $1, 1961 (75
Stat. 527), including compensation of a United States Commissioner, who shall be
appointed by the President, at the rate of $20.000 per annum, services aa authorized
by section J/j of the ;let of August f!, 1946 (5 U.S.C. i'i5a), bui at rates for individuals
not to exceed $75 per diem, and not to exceed $$5,000 for official reception and repre-
sentation expenses, $2/i,OOO,OOO, to remain available until expended: Provided, That
not to exceed $10,100,000 of this appropriation shall be available for transfer to
the General Services Administration for the construction of a United States pavilion.
This proposed supplemental appropriation will provide for Federal
participation in the ew York World's Fair, including exhibits and a
U.S. pavilion. In addition to promoting international good will and
understanding, it will do much to promote additional travel from for-
eign countries. The fair is scheduled to open in April of 1964. The
necessary time for planning the exhibits and constructing the pavilion
requires that funds be made uvailuble us soon us possible.
I recommend that the foregoing proposed supplemental appropria-
tion be transmitted to the Congress.
Respectfully yours,
DAVID E. BELL,
Directur of the Bureau uj the Budget.

v
Embassy Moscow
April 14, 1962
The April 14th edition of PRAVDA contains a release by Tass
which announced a Soviet decision to call off the Moscow World's
Fair scheduied for 1967. It says the Bureau of International
Expositions in Paris was informed of this fact on April 13th. 'The
reason qiven for the Soviet decision were: ( 1) a conflict with the
New York 1964-65 World's Fair, which allegedly :face
participants with a difficult choice, and {2) the fact that exhibits
..
at both exhibitions would be generally similar. The USSR, the release
continues, will approach the Bureau of International Expositions about
a new fair "in due course. "
The Embassy believes the government probably decided that the heavy
outlay of resources required for construction on the Fair grounds
and new facilities required for visitors were not justifiable in liqht of
a current shortage of capital investment funds and an admittedly backlog
in capital construction. 'The Soviets, of course, were aware of plans
for the New York World

made to hold the Moscow Fair.

FROM CHARLES POLETTI
BIE meeting Friday, May 11.
Hotel Petersberg
Oberhalb
Konigswinter AM Rhein
May 16, 1962
Information obtained from Kuhlemann and Loncin, German and
Belgian representatives respectively.
USSR has cancelled the 1967 and not merely postponed it. Canada
has reserved until next BIE meeting in December the right to. apply for
a 1967 exposition-centenary of its Dominion status. You will recall Canada
was an applicant when USSR was. Austria, the other original competitor,
stated it was no longer interested in 1967.
Once again the self-appointed guardians of the BIE, namely the
British, attacked the USSR representative because USSR had signed up
with the New York World's Fair. Some caustic remarks by the British.
The USSR's position was impenetrable; he stated and repeated that the
Chamber of Commerce was a private organization.
One of the significant aspects of all this: Since no resolution in con-
demnation of USSR was offered, the action of USSR has been in effect con-
doned, and hence the BIE cannot hereafter prevent other members of BIE
from finding some similar way of participating in New York World's Fair.
That's the argument we are using in Germany.
One of the objectives of our present trip was to go to London to tell
the British officials like MacMillan, Caccia and others that the World's
Falr does not delight in learning of successive instances of British opposi-
tion to the New York World's Fair.

'THROUGH ALLEN BEACH
FROM ROBERT MOSES
Allen Beach has no doubt informed you of Mr. Nervi's visit. He
1s stUl a modest, hiqhly intelliqent, cultivated engineer with no side, no show
and no cousin FrankL. w. bravura. He said he missed you and was, I would
say, much impressed by the Fair and interested in havinq a part in it. He had
a look at his P. A. airport hanqar but apparenUy was short of time to do the town.
Can't we qet him the Italian Pavilion design or at least have him as
a consultant? He has the stuff, represents modern Italian bulldinq to the world and
would be a great asset to Fiat, Garibaldi, Arpesani, et a1. and to the Fair. He

From: Charles J?oletti:
Subject: Memorandum of conversation with Minister Andre Malraux
in Paris on Monday, June 4th
Mrs. Mary Lasker, Laurence Harris and myself saw the
Minister at 5:30 in the afternoon.
Malraux was most cordial and, in fact, exuberant. He is
a brilliant conversationalist. He took us out on the terrace of the
Pa.lais Royal and showed us the efforts his Ministry is making to
clean the facades of the important buildings in Paris.
'Ihen we had a long conversation about the paintings of
Vermeer. Ten years ago Malraux wrote an authoritative appraisal
of his paintings.
When we turned to the World's Fair, we told Malraux that the
World's Fair was anxious to have the Mona Lisa and other master-
pieces from museums not only of Paris but of other places, such as
Lyon and Montpellier.
Malraux then talked about Whistler's Mother. He told us that
in 1945 when General de Gaulle was coming to the United States,
Malraux suggested to de Gaulle that he bring to the President Whistler's
Mother and de Gaulle was enthusiastically in favor of it. Malraux
suggested this as a modest expression of the appreciation of the French
681 DAYS TO OPENING DAY
people for the great sacrifices made by the American people in the libera-
tion of France. When they looked into the situation they discovered that
French law does not permit the Government to give away, exchange, or
sell any painting that belongs to it. So the idea fell through. Malraux
then added that he thought the World's Fair would be a very good place to
display the painting.
With respect to the Mona Lisa, he looked at Mrs. Lasker and
said to her, "You are such a devoted friend of France that if you desire
the Mona Lisa for the World's Fair, we will do it." He said that as
Minister he would have to consult with the curators of the Louvre but that
he would do it in this way: he will inform the curators that he has decided
to send the Mona Lisa to the World's Fair and that if any curator has any
objection he better put it in writing.
I asked him if it would be helpful were the President of the Fair
to write him a letter asking for the Mona Lisa and other paintings. He
readily agreed and said that was the proper way to do it and then he would
answer Mr. Moses• letter.
In our talks with Malraux, I told him of the plans of the City of
Paris, various large industries and Maxims to participate in a French
Pavilion and that the paintings would be displayed in that Pavilion.
The Syndic of Paris, Denys Cochin, in a conference that we had
had with him had suggested that we get a commitment from Malraux
directed to the Fair. It was for that reason that I suggested a letter from
Moses to Malraux. Denys Cochin stated to us that if we could get Malraux
to send the Mona Lisa and other paintings the success of a French
Pavilion was assured.
A:s I put in my cable of June 5th, Mrs. Lasker deserves the credit .

2. The Fair Corporation has noted a quickening of interest on the part
of foreign nations as a result of the decision, announC'ed in mid-March 1962,
to cancel or postpone indefinitely the Moscow Exposition of 1967. Senior Fair
officials recognize, however, that a number of countries still face serious
financial difficulties before they can make a commitment to participate at
New York for two years. With this in mind, the Fair Corporation has empha-
sized quality rather than size of pavilions and the import of native materials
wherever feasible to effect economies in exhibit or structural components.
In addition, the Fair suggests that participants can reduce the costs by
modest entry charges, the sale of handicrafts and souvenirs or the operation
of a restaurant on a limited area of each pavilion. There is a definite
commercial aspect to the Fair, but it is to be controlled. Addressees
should refer any inquiries on this matter directly to the Fair Corporation.
- 3 -
3. A further inducement to foreign participation is action by Conqress
to provide an official U. S. pavilion on 196, 000 square feet of ground at the
Fair. A compromise appropriation bill that includes $17 million for this
purpose was passed by the Senate and House of Representatives on July 23,
1962 and signed by the President on July 26, 1962. The President has named
Norman K. Winston of New York, a prominent business executive, to be
U.S. Commissioner for the Federal Pavilion. Mr. Winston was sworn in by
Secretary of Commerce Hodges on August 7, 1962. The U. S. Exhibit, in line
with the President's message to Congress of March 13, 1962, will be directed
to the theme, "Challenge to Greatness".
4. The Fair Corporation on a number of occasions has expressed the
keenest satisfaction and appreciation of the work done on its behalf by
Missions and Posts abroad. Addressees are requested to follow the situation
closely in each country and to report with ideas or recommendations for action
either by the Fair Corporation or the Department. Fair officials acknowledge
that trouble spots in many areas of the world make firm planning difficult.
They are, however, optimistic of the final result and express the hope that a
number of nations not now listed in the first paragraph can be moved into
category lA by prompt action in the next few months.
In this connection, the Department considers that recent action by the
Legislative ~ d Executive branches to insure a substantial Federal exhibit
at New York indicates the importance which the U. S. Government attaches
to the success of this event. Chiefs of Mission are authorized to lay stress
on this point, wherever necessary and at the highest appropriate level, in
order to develop the widest possible representation at the Fair.

Embassy Moscow
April 14, 1962
The April 14th edition of PRAVDA contains a release by Tass
which announced a Soviet decision to call off the Moscow World's
Fair scheduied for 1967. It says the Bureau of International
Expositions in Paris was informed of this fact on April 13th. 'The
reason qiven for the Soviet decision were: ( 1) a conflict with the
New York 1964-65 World's Fair, which allegedly :face
participants with a difficult choice, and {2) the fact that exhibits
..
at both exhibitions would be generally similar. The USSR, the release
continues, will approach the Bureau of International Expositions about
a new fair "in due course. "
The Embassy believes the government probably decided that the heavy
outlay of resources required for construction on the Fair grounds
and new facilities required for visitors were not justifiable in liqht of
a current shortage of capital investment funds and an admittedly backlog
in capital construction. 'The Soviets, of course, were aware of plans
for the New York World

made to hold the Moscow Fair.

Transcri t of letter from Governor Polet
TO ROBERT MOSES
FROM CHARLES POLETTI
BIE meeting Friday, May 11.
Hotel Petersberg
Oberhalb
Konigswinter AM Rhein
May 16, 1962
Information obtained from Kuhlemann and Loncin, German and
Belgian representatives respectively.
USSR has cancelled the 1967 and not merely postponed it. Canada
has reserved until next BIE meeting in December the right to. apply for
a 1967 exposition-centenary of its Dominion status. You will recall Canada
was an applicant when USSR was. Austria, the other original competitor,
stated it was no longer interested in 1967.
Once again the self-appointed guardians of the BIE, namely the
British, attacked the USSR representative because USSR had signed up
with the New York World's Fair. Some caustic remarks by the British.
The USSR's position was impenetrable; he stated and repeated that the
Chamber of Commerce was a private organization.
One of the significant aspects of all this: Since no resolution in con-
demnation of USSR was offered, the action of USSR has been in effect con-
doned, and hence the BIE cannot hereafter prevent other members of BIE
from finding some similar way of participating in New York World's Fair.
That's the argument we are using in Germany.
One of the objectives of our present trip was to go to London to tell
the British officials like MacMillan, Caccia and others that the World's
Falr does not delight in learning of successive instances of British opposi-
tion to the New York World's Fair.

Allen Beach has no doubt informed you of Mr. Nervi's visit. He
1s stUl a modest, hiqhly intelliqent, cultivated engineer with no side, no show
and no cousin FrankL. w. bravura. He said he missed you and was, I would
say, much impressed by the Fair and interested in havinq a part in it. He had
a look at his P. A. airport hanqar but apparenUy was short of time to do the town.
Can't we qet him the Italian Pavilion design or at least have him as
a consultant? He has the stuff, represents modern Italian bulldinq to the world and
would be a great asset to Fiat, Garibaldi, Arpesani, et a1. and to the Fair. He
might also do a cantilevered thin concrete building in the Industrial Area.
