The Swedish Legation to the Department of State

A bill has been introduced by Senator LaFollette numbered S. 1558 and entitled:

“A Bill to amend certain laws relating to American Seamen, and for other purposes”.5

Reference is made to the memorandum of this Legation dated January 14, 1932, concerning the bill 1559, introduced by Senator LaFollette. It would seem that the same arguments set forth in that memorandum can be applied in opposition to the passage of the above mentioned bill No. 1558.

  1. Introduced December 14, 1931; see Congressional Record, vol. 75, pt. 1, p. 440.
