President Roosevelt to the Acting Secretary of State

At the present time and subject to later events, I am inclined to approve the informal report of the Tariff Commission with respect to taking no further action on news-prints under provisions of Section 3 (e).

I think it is all right to proceed with negotiations with the Scandinavian countries, but I wish the Committee would let me have a report on the actual results of American paper pulp industry in case additional imports take place.

F[ranklin] D. R[oosevelt]
