Dr. A. E. Taylor, for the Food Administration, to the Counselor for the Department of State ( Polk)


My Dear Mr. Polk: At the meeting of the Inter-Allied Conference in Paris an Inter-Allied Commission on [Scientific] Alimentation was formed to consist of two representatives of each of the four nations, and to sit more or less continuously in Paris. Our allies will name members as soon as they are advised that we have done so. Mr. Hoover has sent in to the President the names of Prof. [Page 666] R. H. Chittenden, Director of the Sheffield Scientific School, Yale University, and Prof. Graham Lusk of Cornell University.
