The President's News Conference

July 15, 1930

THE PRESIDENT. I have got very few questions that I can adequately reply to.


I have one in connection with the Secretaryship of Labor. Secretary Davis is going to continue in office for the present, so that speculation on that is premature.


I have another question relating to the Commission for Celebration of the Tercentenary of the Founding of the Colony of Massachusetts. I have today requested Governor Alvan T. Fuller, ex-Governor Channing Cox, Miss Mary Emma Woolley, of Mt. Holyoke, James Phelan, of Boston, and John Richardson of Boston, to become the public members of the Commission.

And that is all I have got.

Note: President Hoover's one hundred and twenty-sixth news conference was held in the White House at 12 noon on Tuesday, July 15, 1930.
