The entire Muscle Shoals report will be sent up to the Congress. The appendix, as I have glanced it over, consists mostly of charts and things of that kind. They will all be available for the press up there, I am sure. It didn’t seem to be feasible to undertake to make copies of it here, so that it could be given out.

I haven’t taken up the question of a successor to Colonel Sherrill. He hasn’t resigned yet. The only thing I know about his proposed resignation is what I have seen in the press, though I think he did telephone to Mr. Sanders to make inquiry and I told Mr. Sanders to tell him to go ahead and make any arrangement he would like to make.

The Department of Justice is taking up the matter of considering the various suggestions that have been made for appointment to the Federal bench for the Eastern District of New York. Now that the Senators are here, they very likely will make some suggestion about it. I think that will be taken up and disposed of very quickly.

There isn’t anything further that I can say about the press reports that come from Geneva relative to an invitation to be issued by the League of Nations to have this Government participate in a Commission to consider calling another Disarmament Conference. All I can say is that when it comes we will consider it then.
