Memorandum for General Hull

April 3, 1945 [Washington, D.C.]

Top Secret

Regarding publicity as to the recent Pacific Directive, Admiral King agreed with me that if any announcement is made it should be a joint announcement and he is having the matter looked into on his side of the house and I should like the same done here. We added to the Directive the further direction that no publicity would be given in the theaters regarding this matter.1
