  • February 17, 1931 – JSA to Rabenold

My dear Rabenold:

After much effort the sportsmen’s reforestation bill was introduced last night in both the Senate and Assembly.

In our scramble to get things done against odds, the Senate bill went in as you sent it to me, the last paragraph of which refers the amendment to the people, whereas it appears that such references would only be correct had the resolution been acted upon before.

This last paragraph was changed in the Assembly, the Wemple Bill, to be referred to the next Legislature to be chosen t the next general election of senators, etc.

However, we accomplished our main object – getting the bills introduced, and while I have not yet seen the Wemple Bill. I will do so at once, and have the Baxter Bill corrected or re-introduced.

Just now I am making strenuous efforts to get the public hearing held in two weeks, rather than next week, since it is neither fair to the Committee or ourselves to have such a short time to prepare all the information which we should have and get other people present.

I will write you again later in the day.

Sincerely yours, JSApperson
