WILLIAM ROBERT SMITH MEMORIAL ASSOCIATION OF

EL PASO, TEX.

JANUARY 25, 1932.- Referred to the House Calendar and ordered to be printed

Mr. LANKFORD of Georgia, from the Committee on Irrigation and

Reclamation, submitted the following

REPORT

(To accompany S. 2286)

The Committee on Irrigation and Reclamation, to which was referred the bill (S. 2286) authorizing the William Robert Smith Memorial Association of El Paso, Tex., to construct a memorial in honor of William Robert Smith, former Member of Congress from the sixteenth district of Texas, begs leave to report the same with the recommendation that it pass without amendment.

The following letter from the Secretary of the Interior and memorandum from the Commissioner of Reclamation in reference to this bill will explain themselves:

DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR,

Washington, January 8, 1932, Hon. John Thomas, Chairman Committee on Irrigation and Reclamation,

United States Senate. MY DEAR MR. CHAIRMAN: In compliance with your request of December 31, for a statement of views on S. 2286, which is a bill that would authorize the William Robert Smith Memorial Association of El Paso, Tex., to construct a memorial in honor of William Robert Smith, former Member of Congress from the sixteenth district of Texas, I transmit herewith a memorandum on the subject that has been submitted by the Commissioner of Reclamation, After a review of the proposed measure, I agree with the commissioner. Sincerely yours,

Ray LYMAN WILBUR, Secretary.

DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR,

BUREAU OF RECLAMATION,

Washington, January 6, 1932. Memorandum for the Secretary.

The attached letter of December 31 from Hon. John Thomas, chairman Committee on Irrigation and Reclamation, United States Senate, requests a statement of views on proposed legislation untitled “A bill authorizing the William Robert Smith Memorial Association of El Paso, Tex., to construct a memorial in honor of William Robert Smith, former Member of Congress from the sixteenth district of Texas."

The erection of a suitable tablet in memory of Mr. Smith seems a fitting tribute to one who rendered such distinguished service while in Congress in connection with the legislation authorizing the construction of the Elephant Butte Reservoir and who after his termination of service in Congress continued to show such a lively interest in the Rio Grande project and in irrigation in the Southwest. I accordingly recommend favorable consideration of the bill.

ELWOOD MEAD, Commissioner.
