Nobody has been chosen to nominate me at Cleveland.
I haven’t received the report of the Federal Trade Commission on its investigation of the gasoline situation. I don’t know whether it is nearly completed or not. I made the request of them some time ago to investigate it.
I haven’t any plans about what the Congress ought to do at the present time.
I shall act on the tax bill as soon as I can. I don’t think the State Dept. is expecting to take any steps on the immigration bill. That you can find out there. I don’t know of any.
Mr. President, along that line would you permit a question as to whether any intimation has arrived from Mr. Hanihara as to his remaining in Washington?
I haven’t had any intimation that he is going to retire, so I should judge all the expectation would be that he will remain here. I don’t know of any reason why he shouldn’t.
I haven’t received any invitation to attend the 150th Anniversary of the first meeting of the Continental Congress at Philadelphia.
I haven’t made any decision about the vacancies in the 6th and 7th Circuits of the Court of Appeals.
I can’t tell you very much about the tax bill. It is true that I have a copy here, but I shall have to depend upon the experts to point out the changes that it contemplates, and to give me the benefit of their criticism before making a decision. I don’t think I have received many communications about it either one way or the other.
