a final act with respect to this question. Moved by the same consid-
erations which in 1936 led the Assembly to appeal to the Governments
of important maritime countries to assist in the settlement of the
problem, the Council refrained from fixing a date for the meeting of
the suggested Conference. To judge from a new appeal addressed to
Governments, this time by the Advisory and Technical Committee,
it would appear that there are still certain difficulties in the way of
carrying out the drafts drawn up with such care under the auspices
of the Communications and Transit Organization."
  Respectfully yours,                     HOWARD BUCKEFLL, JR.
