The Ambassador in France (Herrick) to the Secretary of State

70. My 60, March 9, 1 p.m. Senate on March 14 passed oil importer bill eliminating Chamber amendment of government participation in profits and also amending article two by an additional clause [Page 844]providing that the Council of State must likewise be consulted with respect to the special authorization for licenses. [Paraphrase.] As constituting presumably an effective check upon any arbitrary action by the commission created by the bill, this clause is most welcome, [End paraphrase.]

Chamber yesterday finally passed bill accepting Senate reservations.49
