I do not recall that any report has come to me from the Tariff Commission in its investigation of milk and cream. Do you recall any such, Mr. Sanders?

Mr. Sanders: I don’t think it has.

President: When it does come, all I can say is that it will be disposed of in the regular course of business.

Mr. and Mrs. Hoover are dining with Mrs. Coolidge and me tonight.

I have been invited to the 25th anniversary of Dr. Abram Simon of Washington. It is 25 years since he assumed leadership of the Washington Hebrew Congregation. He is being tendered a dinner on January 26th. I have that under consideration. I don’t know whether I can go or not. I have a very high regard for Dr. Simon. I think he served here on the School Committee and is regarded as a very useful citizen.

I was naturally pleased that the peace treaty was ratified. As I said at the last conference, the indications were that it would be ratified all right, and I think the importance of the treaty will grow among the people as it goes into operation. 12 or 15 nations have already adhered to it. I think ours was the first nation of those which signed it which has ratified it.
