Hon. ARTHUR CAPPER,
Chairman Committee on the District of Columbia,

Whereas said uniform act has been enacted by some 28 States, and in part by 6 additional States, some 6 other States having previously adopted similar legislation, thus evidencing widespread approval of the Government's policy of safeguarding the estates and welfare of incompetent disabled veterans and of the minor children of veterans who were disabled or who have died as a result of injuries received in service during the World War; and

Whereas there is now pending in the Congress of the United States Senate bill No. 2816 embodying the provisions of said act; and

Whereas the enactment of said bill for the District of Columbia would more definitely insure the protection of our unfortunate comrades, and their children; now, therefore be it

Resolved, That the Stuart Walcott Post No. 10, of the Department of the D strict of Columbia, American Legion, heartily indorses the action of Hon. Ar thur Capper in introducing said bill and respectfully recommends its enactment by the Congress.

DISABLED AMERICAN VETERANS OF THE WORLD WAR,

Washington, April 4, 1930. Senator ARTHUR CAPPER, Chairman of the the Senate District Committee,

Washington, D. C. MY DEAR SENATOR CAPPER: Reference is made to S. 2816, which is a bill to amend section 1125, chapter 31, of the District of Columbia Code, which has for purpose to bring the law of the District of Columbia into a state of approximate similarity with that of those States who have adopted the uniform veterans' guardianship law.

All of us in the District of Columbia remember the guardianship scandals which caused such unfavorable public comment a few years ago, and this organization has endeavored at all times to bring about a situation which would prevent impositions on our incompetent comrades by those conscienceless persons who can see nothing in life but monetary gain. This organization has also endeavored to bring to the attention of Congress some kind of national regulation of the matter, particularly in so far as the disbursement of the Federal funds to our disabled comrades is concerned.

This organization feels that the passage of S. 2816 would be a step in the right direction and in the direction of general uniformity and therefore respectfully requests that you use your best efforts to have this bill speedily enacted into law.

I would appreciate the kindness of a statement from you as to the possibility of legislation in this direction. Yours very respectfully,

E. C. Babcock, Commander. O

REPORT No. 494

EXTENDING TIME FOR BUILDING BRIDGE ACROSS THE

OHIO RIVER AT CANNELTON, IND.

APRIL 21, 1930.-Ordered to be printed

Mr. Dale, from the Committee on Commerce, submitted the following

REPORT

[To accompany S. 3713]

The Committee on Commerce, to whom was referred the bill (S. 3713) to extend the times for commencing and completing the construction of a bridge across the Ohio River at or near Cannelton, Ind., having considered the same, report favorably thereon, and recommend that the bill do pass without amendment.

The bill has the approval of the Department of War as will appear by the annexed communication.

WAR DEPARTMENT, March 10, 1930. Respectfully returned to the chairman Committee on Commerce, United States Senate.

So far as the interests committed to this department are concerned, I know of no objection to the favorable consideration of the accompanying bill (S. 3713, 71st Cong., 2d sess.) to extend the times for commencing and completing the construction of a bridge across the Ohio River at or near Cannelton, Ind.

PATRICK J. HURLEY,

Secretary of War.

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE,

Washington, D. C., March 6, 1930. Hon. HIRAM W. JOHNSON,

Chairman Committee on Commerce, United States Senate. DEAR SENATOR: Receipt is acknowledged of your letter of February 27, transmitting a copy of a bill S. 3713, with request that the committee be furnished wth such suggestions touching its merits and the propriety of its passage as the department might deem appropriate.

This bill would extend for one and three years, respectively, from March 1, 1930, the times for commencing and completing the construction of the bridge across the Ohio River at or near Cannelton, Ind., authorized to be built by the Hawesville & Cannelton Bridge Co. by act of Congress approved March 1, 1929. Routes on the system of Federal-aid highways approved for Indiana and Kentucky pass through the town of Hawesville on the Kentucky side and terminate at Cannelton on the Indiana side of the river. A bridge across the Ohio River at this point will connect these two routes on the system of Federal-aid highways. It, therefore, is the view of the department that a private toll bridge should not be authorized at this point. Sincerely,

C. F. MARVIN, Acting Secretary. O
