Axel Wenner-Gren, Swedish industrialist who has been blacklisted by the U.S. State Department, asked today in a state ment that the Washington Govern ment either make public the grounds for its decision or else "clear my name of what is a cruel and unfounded charge. Wenner-Gren's name was included in a lost of 1800 issued by the State Department last night, all of whom are considered by the U.S. authorities to beacting for the benefit of Axis powers or exporting goods deemed detrimental to U.S. defense.

Their assets were frozen. The industrialist, whose list of re ported friendship ranges from the Duke of Windsor to Greta Garbo and Reichsmarshal Hermann Goer-ing, returned toMexico City today from a trip to Vera Cruz. He said: I want to say simply and directly that a serious mistake has been made by the State Department and that I am confident that a public examination of the evidence on which the State Department acted in my case will quickly clarify the error. It will also reveal that I am, in fact, as I always have been, a friend of the U.S. and British Governments and peoples." Wenner-Gren palatial yacht, the Southern Cross, is at Vera Cruz.

The list is made up of those the State Department deems "to be acting for the bene fit" of the enemy or those to whom the export of various goods might be detrimental to American defense. NOW IN VERA CRUZ An associate of Wenner-Gren's said in Mexico that the industrialist was "by no stretch of the imagina tion an Axis sympathizer" and that the blacklisting was "a terrible mistake." Wenner-Gren was said to be in Vera Cruz to meet his wife on her return from the Bahams where he has a mansion. Shan- gri-L.

His activities in Mexico came to light last November 28 when Gen. Maximmo Avila Camacho, communications minister, disclosed that. Wenner-Gren was looking into the possibilities of a syndicate to invest more than $100,000,000 in that country. Avila Camacho said then that the Duke and Duchess of Windsor were to visit Mexico as Wenner-Gren's guests some time in January, travel ing aboard the Swedish industrial ist's yacht, the Southern Cross.
