Tung oil.
Import quota.

WHEREAS, on the basis of the said investigation and report of the Tariff Commission, I find that tung oil is being, and is practically certain to continue to be, imported into the United States under such conditions and in such quantities as to render or tend to render ineffective or materially interfere with the said price-support program with respect to tung nuts and tung oil, and as to reduce substantially the amount of products processed in the United States from domestic tung nuts or tung oil with respect to which such program is being undertaken; and

WHEREAS I find and declare that the imposition of the quantitative limitations on imports of tung oil hereinafter proclaimed is shown by such investigation of the Tariff Commission to be necessary in order that the entry of tung oil will not render or tend to render ineffective, or materially interfere with, the said price-support program, or reduce substantially the amount of products processed in the United States from tung nuts or tung oil; and

WHEREAS I find that the quantitative limitations hereinafter proclaimed will not reduce the permissible total quantity of tung oil which may be entered to proportionately less than 50 per centum of the average annual quantity of tung oil entered during the representative period November 1, 1952 to October 31, 1956, inclusive; and

WHEREAS the allocation of the quotas among foreign supplying countries as hereinafter prescribed will assure an equitable distribution of the imports of tung oil which may be entered hereunder, based upon the proportion of imports for consumption that such foreign countries supplied during the said representative period:

NOW, THEREFORE, I, DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER, President of the United States of America, acting under and by virtue of the authority vested in me by the said section 22 of the Agricultural Adjustment Act, as amended, do hereby proclaim
