MARCH 2, 1931.-Committed to the Committee of the Whole House on the state of the Union and ordered to be printed

Mr. TEMPLE, from the Committee on Foreign Affairs, submitted the following


[To accompany S. 6203]

The Committee on Foreign Affairs, to whom was referred the bill (S. 6203) to increase the amount authorized to be appropriated for the expenses of participation by the United States in the international hygiene exhibition at Dresden, Germany, having considered the same unanimously recommends that it do pass without amendment.

Last year Congress appropriated $5,000 to enable the Government of the United States to participate in the International Hygiene Exhibition at Dresden, Germany. The appropriation was so small, however, that we were unable to make a very creditable exhibit. Now it is proposed to continue this exhibition through this year from May 15 to September 30. Of the amount asked for there will be allocated $15,000 each to the United States Public Health Service, the Surgeon General of the Navy, and the Surgeon General of the Army. The extra $5,000 will be used in the printing of a report, and it is believed that the circulation of the data brought back from this exhibition will be most valuable. This exhibition will attract the most advanced ideas from the 59 nations taking part in the exhibit, so it will make available to us a great deal of material regarding better water supplies, milk supplies, etc.

The German Ambassador has transmitted an invitation on behalf of his Government to the United States Department of State, requesting the official representation of the United States Government at the exposition.
