mporiance of Trade to Prosperily
xvill he Theme Discua.e,
By Delegai ions
New York, April 6. \merican bus-
iness bonds with the Orient, where
American foreign trade has increased
by 400 per cent since 1913v, ill 1e
further strengthened this year by the'
coming of delegations from six for-
eign nations bordering on the Pa-
cific to the Twelfth National Foreign
Trade Council. Founded in 1914, the
council is now to hold the first of its
yearly conventions in the Pacific
northwest. The theme will he "For-
eign Trade Essential to Prosperity."
As a practical means of extending
and improving American foreign
trade, which exceeded 92,000,000 tons
in 1924, the forthcoming convention
meets as a board of directors of a
company with an $8,200,000,000 an-
nual business turnover, representing
the 1924 valuation of American for-
eign trade. The sessions of the con-
vention will embrace all markets
where this business may be increas-
ed. Export managers, sales managers,
exporters and importers, foreign de-
partment executives of banks, credit
manlagers, and educators will hold
group sessions within the convention,
and both foreign delegates and
American delegates in active busi-
ness abroad will take special charge
of a series of group conferences de-
voted to better selling methods, credit
and financing, shipping and advertis-
The convention this year will meet
in the center of the most rapidly grow-
ing foreign trade district in the United
States, according to the statement of i
the council, for the Washington cus- 1
toms district, of which Seattle is the
chief port, has increased its foreign
trade during the last four years from
$175,000,000 to $426,000,000. The
Puget Sound region is growing in
popularity at live times the pace of
the United States as a whole; already
Seattle ranks second to New York in
the number of passengers entering;
the United States through seaport
cities. More than 70 per cent of the
raw silk enteriing the United States
and 80 ier cent of all trans-Pacific
mail move through the city, while its
corresponding proportions in other
commodities of foreign trade give the
Washingtons customs district first
rank in total value of imports and ex-
ports of the United States customs
districts on the Pacifis Coast.
Delegates to the convention, includ-
ing the representatives of the six
Pacific countries, China, Japan, India,
Straits Settlements, Dutch East In-
dies and the Philippines, will be in-
vited to view the site of this remark-
able growth at first hand and will be
taken on tour to other cities of the
Pacific northwest, particularly Port-
land, Tacoma and Spokane,,as guests
of the local chambers of commerce.
Washington, April 6.-Congress has
left up to David Lynn, architect of
the capitol, the problem of a survey
for a new building to house the offices
of representatives. It has given him
$2,500 for the job and expects him to
report by the opening of the sixty-
ninth congress next fall.
Senators already have two, three or
four office rooms apiece, but house
members have but one room each, in

which to receive visitors, hold confer-
ences, and house three or four clerks.
To give each representative two
rooms is the object of the survey
which Mr. Lynn is called upon to
Two definie proposals have been
advanced. One is to build within the
court of the present house office
building a structure nine stories high
at an estimated cost of $3,000,000, to
provides 375 rooms. This plan also
contemplates raising the present
building one story. The other pro-
posal would be to construct a new
building nearby.
