COMMITTEE ON IMMIGRATION AND NATURALIZATION,
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,
Saturday, March 8, 1924. The committee met at 10 o'clock a. m., Hon. Albert Johnson (chairman) presiding.
The following members of the committee were present: Messrs. Johnson, Taylor, Vaile, White, Cable, Holaday, Vincent, Bacon, Sabath, Wilson, Box, Dickstein, and Watkins.
The CHAIRMAN. The purpose of the meeting to-day is to hear Dr. Harry H. Laughlin, who has carried out several valuable researches for this committee since 1920. The committee will recall that, among other studies, he conducted a census of the different nativity stocks in the State and Federal penal and eleemosynary institutions, which investigation resulted in the publication of a hearing entitled "Analysis of America's Modern Melting Pot,” which was a basic study in relative social inadequacy of the several nativity groups of the United States. Seven or eight months ago Doctor Laughlin, when about to go abroad, was granted credentials by the Department of Labor as United States immigration agent to Europe. He also agreed to make some observations that might be of value to this committee, and to report his findings to us. He is just returned after six months' research in immigration in European countries, and, in accordance with the understanding made before his departure, we have called the committee to hear him to-day. If you are ready to proceed, Doctor Laughlin, we will be glad to hear you now.

Mr. SABATH. Do I understand that Doctor Laughlin went over there for the Labor Department?
Doctor LAUGHLIN. Yes, sir. As a so-called “dollar a year man, I had a commission from the Department of Labor. Mr. SABATH. What do you mean by a commission?
