The American ship was the Mar- |tln Behniiauii, operated by the LT. |S. War shipping Administration. |l'he Dutch threats highlighted a • little-publicized situation in which • the Dutch have barred any foreign •snips from attempting to load car- iKoes at ports held by Indonesia:! {nationalists. The Martin Behimann, rcsponsi- Ible sources reported, messaged IGheribon authorities lhat it had •state department permission to en|ter the port. Dr. Walter A. Foote, U. S. consul iKcneral in Batavia, was quoted as .. that the .ship had Sate • Department sanction, and warned |lhiil it would proceed at its own Informants said no American • ship had permission to enter In- Idonesian ports without first calling Biitavia, and under no circum- Istances should any steamship line |>ry to force entry.

American shipping firms, parlic- ilcrly the Isthmian Line which • applied last month for permission • to enter the restricted ports, eliarg- |ed Dutch authorities with discrim- Imation.
