There were present: Mr. Haugen, Mr. McLaughlin of Michigan, Mr. Purnell, Mr. Voigt, Mr. McLaughlin of Nebraska, Mr. Riddick, Mr. Tincher, Mr. Sinclair, Mr. Hays, Mr. Clague, Mr. Clarke, Mr. Aswell, Mr. Kincheloe, Mr. Jones, and Mr. Ten Eyck.
The CHAIRMAN. The committee has met this morning to give consideration to House joint resolution 284. (The resolution referred to follows:)
[H. J. Res. 284, Sixty-seventh Congress, second session.] JOINT RESOLUTION Authorizing the President to require the United States Sugar Equalization Board (Incorporated) to take over and dispose of two thousand tons of sugar imported from the Argentine Republic and adjust the loss sustained thereby.
Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the President is authorized to require the United States Sugar Équalization Board (Incorporated) to take over from the copartnership, Lamborn and Company, a certain transaction entered into and carried on by said copartnership at the request, under direction, and as agents of the Department of Justice, which transaction involved the purchase in the Argentine Republic, between May 25 and June 15, 1920 of two thousand tons of sugar, the importation thereof into the United States, and the distribution of the same within the United States, and to require the said United States Sugar Equalization Board (Incorporated) to liquidate and adjust the entire transaction in such manner as may be deemed by said board to be equitable and proper in the premises, paying to the copartnership aforesaid such sums as may be found by said board to represent the actual loss sustained by them in said transaction, and for this purpose the President is authorized to vote or use the stock of the corporation held by him, or otherwise exercise or use his control over the said United States Sugar Equalization Board and its directors, and to continue the said corporation for such time as may be necessary to carry out the intention of this joint resolution.
The CHAIRMAN. Who is the first witness?
The CHAIRMAN. Before we proceed, I would like to state that I have a request here from Mr. Bush-Brown, who desires to be heard on this Mount Weather proposition. He has appeared before the committee once before. Will you hear him to-morrow?
Mr. KINCHELOE. Why do they want to be heard any further? I got the impression that the committee was practically unanimous against the proposition,
The CHAIRMAN. The committee has agreed to hear Mrs. Boggs to-morrow and I presumed it might hear him at the same time.
Mr. KINCHELOE. What does Mrs. Boggs want to talk about?
The CHAIRMAN. About turning over part of the forest reserve for the use of the soldiers as recreation grounds and the committee had agreed to hear her in the morning, and I thought possibly we could hear Mr. Bush-Brown for a few minutes.
Mr. KiNCHELOE. If they have any more supplemental statements to make, why not file them with the committee instead of taking up the committee's time with this Mount Weather proposition? We have had some hearings on that already.
Mr. McLAUGHLIN of Michigan, If he has no more than what he had when he was here before to offer, I do not care to waste any time on it. Mr. KINCHELOE. I do not, either.
