INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS OF ENTOMOLOGY

MESSAGE

TROM

THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

TRANSMITTING

REPORT FROM THE SECRETARY OF STATE, TOGETHER WITH A RECOMMENDATION FROM THE SECRETARY OF AGRICULTURE THAT A RESOLUTION BE ADOPTED REQUESTING THE PRESIDENT TO INVITE FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS TO BE REPRESENTED BY DELEGATES AT THE INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS OF ENTOMOLOGY TO BE HELD IN THE UNITED STATES IN 1928

DECEMBER 19, 1927.—Read; referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations,

and ordered to be printed

To the Congress of the United States:

I transmit herewith a report from the Secretary of State inclosing a recommendation from the Secretary of Agriculture that the Congress be requested to adopt a resolution authorizing and requesting the President to invite foreign governments to be represented by delegates at the International Congress of Entomology, to be held in the United States in 1928.

It will be noticed that because of the close relationship between entomology and agriculture the Department of Agriculture is especially interested in the international aspects of this science, which it considers of very great importance to this country. As it would seem, therefore, that the participation of foreign governments in the congress mentioned would be in the public interest, I recommend to Congress the passage of the joint resolution. No appropriation is requested.

CALVIN COOLIDGE. THE WHITE HOUSE,

December 19, 1987.
SD—70-1-vol 24- -29

The PRESIDENT:

With a view to the submission of the request to Congress, if the President approve thereof, the undersigned, the Secretary of State, has the honor to lay before the President a copy of a letter from the Secretary of Agriculture, recommending the adoption by the Congress of a joint resolution, a draft of which he incloses, authorizing and requesting the President to extend invitations to foreign governments to be represented by delegates at the International Congress of Entomology to be held in the United States in 1928. No appropriation is requested.

In explanation of Secretary Jardine's letter, it may be stated that at his request the American diplomatic officers were authorized in June last to deliver, on behalf of the American organization committee of the International Congress of Entomology, which will be held at Cornell University, Ithaca, N. Y., in 1928, an invitation addressed by that committee to foreign governments, but to make it clear to those governments that the Government of the United States had no connection with the Congress.

This action was taken on the strength of the following statement by Secretary Jardine:

Because of the close relationship between entomology and agriculture, this department (the Department of Agriculture) is especially interested in the international aspects of this science. It considers them of very great importance to this country. Respectfully submitted.

FRANK B. KELLOGG. DEPARTMENT OF STATE,

Washington, December 19, 1927.

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE,

Washington, D. C., December 10, 1927. The SECRETARY OF STATE.

Dear MR. SECRETARY: On June 17, 1927, I wrote you relative to the International Congress of Entomologists to be held in this country in August, 1928. Informal invitations to the various Governments have been forwarded by the Department of State. The importance of the congress would be emphasized and a fuller representation of Governments secured if the congress could be officially recognized by the Government of the United States.

If it meets with your approval, will you please take appropriate action along the lines suggested in the joint resolution hereto attached. Sincerely yours,

W. M. JARDINE, Secretary.

JOINT RESOLUTION Authorizing and requesting the President to extend invitations to foreign

governments to be represented by delegates at the International Congress of Entomology to be held in the United States in 1928

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the President be, and he is hereby, authorized and requested to extend invitations to foreign governments to be represented by delegates at the International Congress of Entomology to be held in the United States in 1928.
