REPORT No. 131

ESTABLISHMENT OF A COMMISSION FOR CONSTRUCTION OF WASHINGTON-LINCOLN MEMORIAL GETTYSBURG BOULEVARD CONNECTING PRESENT LINCOLN MEMORIAL IN CITY OF WASH. INGTON WITH BATTLEFIELD OF GETTYSBURG IN STATE OF PENNSYLVANIA

FEBRUARY 15 (calendar day, FEBRUARY 20), 1935.-Ordered to be printed

Mr. SMITH, from the Committee on Agriculture and Forestry,

submitted the following

REPORT

[To accompany S. J. Res. 43]

The Committee on Agriculture and Forestry, to whom was referred the resolution (S. J. Res. 43) for the establishment of a Commission for the construction of a Washington-Lincoln Memorial Gettysburg Boulevard connecting the present Lincoln Memorial in the city of Washington with the battlefield of Gettysburg in the State of Pennsylvania, having considered the same, recommend that the resolution do pass with the following amendment:

On page 3, line 15, after the word "before" insert the following "one year after the date of enactment of this joint resolution,”.

This resolution was referred to the Department of Agriculture for a report and in its report the following is said:

The Commission would be authorized to act entirely independent of this Department, so that the Department would have, apparently, no direct connection with it or its work. Such a boulevard as that proposed would provide an artery of traffic which undoubtedly would contribute very greatly to relieving the traffic situation within the District of Columbia, particularly with respect to through routes for travel from the west and northwest to the down-town sections. However, it is not a matter which would directly concern this Department.

The Commission which this resolution proposes to set up would be charged with the duty of preparing the plan or plans to further commemorate the services of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln by the construction of the boulevard in question. It will be noted that the resolution merely sets up this Commission which is to consider the feasibility and advisability of such a memorial and the resolution does not authorize the construction of same.
