The President's News Conference

May 10, 1929

THE PRESIDENT. Well, I have one question today, and I am not quite in a position to make an adequate reply to it, so this is a famine day, I am sorry to say. I have nothing on my mind, and apparently you have nothing on yours very much. I am sorry I haven't anything

Q. Mr. President, are you going away tomorrow ?

THE PRESIDENT. I am thinking of going away about 10 or 11 o'clock.

Note: President Hoover's twentieth news conference was held in the White House at 4 p.m. on Friday, May 10, 1929.
