Ross said. "The matter of seizure has been under consideration." Un- der further questioning he em- phasized that this did "not refer to steel." Truman Letter Ross made public a letter In which President Truman instruc- ted the steel fact-finding board to continue its "study of govern- mental data" and "remain avail- able for further consultation." Ross was asked if the letter to the steel board indicated that the president doesn't see the need for public hearings yet. Ross replied the letter would have to speak for itself. It was sent in reply to a re- quest for instructions addressed to the president by the board P. Fcinsinger. Roger I. McDonough and Jamn M. Douglas, and read: to Board "I have received your letter dated January 19. 1948 in which you review the activities of the agriculture j to moot" Some" Americans privately that the United i States apparently was moving into a middle man position be- tween Russia and Britain.
