Paris dispatches reported that
Secretary of State James F.
Byrnes and his U. S. delegation
to the peace conference were “boil

and the President’s apparent en

Though Byrnes had remained
silent, American delegates at
Paris and members of congress
here had protested angrily that
Mr. Truman’s approval of the
speech had cut the ground from

Officials close to Byrnes and his
two Senate advisers in Paris—
Sens. Arthur H. Vandenberg, R.,
Mich., and Tom Connally, D„ Tex.
—termed Mr. Truman’s approval
of the speech a colossal blunder.
Vandenberg himself remarked
with bitter sarcasm that "we can
only cooperate with one secre
tary of state at a time.”
Mr. Truman’s explanatory state

Emphasizing that there has been
no change in established U. S.
foreign policy, the President said:
"There will he no significant
change in that policy without dis

the President, the Secretary of

Mr. Truman issued his state

Clayton who had suggested cau

of Wallace’s speech were contrary
to American foreign policy enun

Clayton said after his meeting c
with Mr. Truman that he had dis- j
cussed foreign policy with the j
President, but declined to say (
whether it involved the Wallace ,
speech. Nor would he comment ‘
on reports that he had told White '

Wallace speech would embarass
