The President's News Conference

September 12, 1930

THE PRESIDENT. The dearth of news still continues about this place. I am not engaged right now in making news.

I have just one question and that is regarding our attitude toward a loan to Santo Domingo. We will not in any way obstruct Santo Domingo in the making of a loan for the purposes set forth, and we are delighted to cooperate.

That is as far as there is any excitement that I know of. I thank you.

Note: President Hoover's one hundred and fortieth news conference was held in the White House at 4 p.m. on Friday, September 12, 1930.
