Press Conference, June 1, 1928

Date: June 1, 1928

Location: Washington DC

(Original document available here)

I don’t know yet just what time I shall leave for Wisconsin. If any of you want to go up there, if they will leave word with Mr. Sanders he will notify you. As the conference knows, I prefer not to have the time of my traveling reported in the press.

Mr. Morrow hasn’t made any report regarding Mexico, other than what has already been made public a good many times. He told me of the progress they have made in adjusting the differences relative to land, both agricultural and mineralized, and they are also working on the question of the claims that exist between the two countries.

I am not going to deliver any Flag Day address. I am having to make a budget speech on the 11th. I stopped on my way west last year to make a Flag Day address in the District of Will Wood. It seems to have had a very bad effect, so I won’t inflict a like calamity on any other Congressman.

Question: What happened Mr. President?

President: (proceeding without answering) I don’t know what will be done about promotions or increases in salaries on the first of July.
