S. Sends Sharp I^ote Protesting Hungarian Coup WASHINGTON, Juno 11. {U.I'.)—The United Slates lias dispatched a note to Kussia strongly piotc.sliiif (he Communist coup in Hungary, it was learned today. The protest was addressed lo U. SINGLE COPIES FIV? CENTS Gen. V. P. Sviridov. soviet commander in Hungary. It will be delivered to him by Brip;. Gen. George H. Wccms, Svlrdov's American counterpart on the Tri-Powcr Control Commission for Hungary. The note, it was said, carried the implication that this country will lake the Hungarian case to lhe Dulled Nations. It did iiol, however, specifically s:i v so. Earlier, the United states had exposed as false what It called an "obvious propaganda maneuver" in Hungary. The prolest was said to have called again on the Russians to agree to United Stales-Soviet-British investigation of the political Ellualion in Hungary. Russia lias rejected two earlier American requests for an investigation. Diplomatic sources believed that the British foreign office would make similar representations to Russia. Britain joined in the two earlier requests for an inquiry into t ict charges of "conspiracy" inst the ousted moderate Hun- yafi'an government, ^lie note also was understood to: 1. charge Sviridov and other Soviet officials in Hungary with violating terms of the Yalta agreement protecting the sovereignty of liberated countries.. 2. Characterize the recent Soviet- inspired overthrow of the Hungnl rian government as the result of Russia's intimidation, coercion, and intervention in Hungarian aftaiis. The text of lhe American "note will be made public here tonight after it has been delivered to Sviri- dov by Weems. Dispatch of the note had !)ci;:i Held up pending a reply from Rui- sia to an American request to' copies ol the "conspiracy charges" which resulted in lhe Hungarian coup d'etat.

A communist newspaper circulated in Budapest yesterday claimed th;i!-!*v secret exchange of letters betwe^ Nagy and Undcrsecrelary of Elale Dean Acheson had assured lhe former premier of anti- Communist aid under the Truman doctrine. I In releasing copies of the correspondence, a State Department spokesman pointedly 'noted that Achcsou's letter to Nagy was (fated March 3 — nine days before President Truman announced the policy of assisting countries rcsislin 1 ; totalitarianism. It was in ; reply l» a Jan. 10 letter from Nagy. The word ''support" appcar^n only once in Acheron's letter, and then when he said thai peace would require "our steadfast support of the ideals and praclices of :rec men. " Nagy's letter also used the wor^i once. It came when he said, the Hungarian people ''have had occasion to enjoy the results of your understanding and support." "Any allegations lhat secici commitments were made are hereby exposed." the State Department, jgcokcsman said. VJrllic Communist charge to 'lie contrary, he said, is an "obvious ' propaganda maneuver lo bejtoud the issue.
