The President's News Conference

May 23, 1930


THE PRESIDENT. It is my understanding that the advocates of the naval treaty in the Senate are earnestly striving to secure action in the present session. If it should prove impossible to complete it at the regular session, I shall call a special session immediately following the regular session for the sole purpose of dealing with the treaty. The leaders of the Senate have been consulted, and they are in agreement with this program.

Other than that I have nothing today.

Note: President Hoover's one hundred and thirteenth news conference was held in the White House at 4 p.m. on Friday, May 23, 1930.

On the same day, the White House also issued a text of the President's statement on the Treaty for the Limitation and Reduction of Naval Armaments (see Item 162).
