President Runyon: Gentlemen of the Senate:

It has occurred to me that under the Senate rules very little opportunity is given to the President to determine as to which committees the various bills should be referred at the time of their introduction, on account of the difficulty of ascertaining the gist of a bill from the mere reading of its title. I would therefore ask tha: at the time you introduce your various bills, and for the sake of greater efficiency, you express your preference for such committee as to your minds would be most appropriate for their consideration. In case no such preference shall be expressed I shall refer the bills to such committees as to me shall seem most appropriate.

Mr. Case moved that the Senate take a recess of two minutes.
