3d Session

REPORT No. 1651


May 22 (legislative day, APRIL 24), 1940.-Ordered to be printed

Mr. PITTMAN, from the Committee on Foreign Relations, submitted

the following


[To accompany H. R. 9595]

The Committee on Foreign Relations, having had under consideration the bill (H. R. 9595) to postpone for 1 year the date of the transmission to Congress by the United States Coronado Exposition Commission of a statement of its expenditures, hereby report the same to the Senate without amendment, with the recommendation that it do pass.

For the information of the Senate, there is appended hereto and made a part of this report the report (No. 2100) of the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the House of Representatives, which contains a communication and information pertinent to the bill, reading as follows:

The Committee on Foreign Affairs, to whom was referred the bill (H. R. 9595) to postpone for 1 year the date of the transmission to Congress by the United States Coronado Exposition Commission of a statement of its expenditures, having considered the same, report favorably thereon without amendment and recommend that the bill do pass.

For the information of the House, there is appended hereto and made a part of this report a communication from the Acting Secretary of State to the chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, dated May 6, 1940, reading as follows:


Washington, May 6, 1940. The Honorable Sol Bloom, Chairman, Committee on Foreign Affairs,

House of Representatives. MY DEAR MR. Bloom: I have received your communication of May 1, 1940 transmitting a copy of H. R. 9595, to postpone for 1 year the date of the transmission to Congress by the United States Coronado Exposition Commission of a statement of its expenditures, and requesting a report thereon.

I am not a member of the United States Coronado Exposition Commission and therefore do not feel qualified to pass upon any of the financial arrangements for the exposition. I am of the opinion that the question of postponing the date of transmission to Congress of the Commission's statement of expenditures is one for the determination of the Congress itself. Sincerely yours,

SUMNER WELLES, Acting Secretary.

In accordance with clause 2a, rule 13, there is inserted in this report, section 6 of Public Act 186, Seventy-sixth Congress, approved July 17, 1939, which is amended by this measure (the amendatory language in italic and the repealed section enclosed in black brackets):

“Sec. 6. The Commission shall transmit to Congress on or before January 3, [1941] 1942, a detailed statement of the manner of expenditure of any funds appropriated pursuant to the authorization contained in this Act."

Federal participation in the celebration of the four-hundredth anniversary of the explorations of Francisco Vasquez de Coronado was authorized under provisions of Public Act No. 186, Seventy-sixth Congress. This anniversary is being observed in the States of New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas. Inasmuch as Francisco Vasquez de Coronado and his expedition did not reach the territory which has since become the States of Oklahoma and Kansas until the year following his exploration of the others, those two States have made arrangements to celebrate the anniversary in 1941 instead of 1940.

This measure simply makes it possible for the United States Coronado Exposition Commission to carry out the original intention of the Congress by extending for 1 year the time for filing its report, and thereby enabling it to cooperate with the States of Oklahoma and Kansas in the observance of the anniversary.
