WASHINGTON, D.C. Dear Mr. Eccles: I thank you for your letter of February 23 enclosing correspondence with Sirs. Bowen in regard to the advancement of national opera. I should be glad to mention this to Colonel Waite when he returns from his trip, but I should point out that such a project would not be eligible under the Act as it stands. Similar activities carried on by the Civil Works Administration have, so I am informed, been financed by relief funds rather than by the money made available by the Public! Works allotment. I do not know just what the status of such a project would be under the resolution passed by Congress the other day, as I have not seen this resolution in its final form. Very sincerely yours, 0 Hon. Marriner S. Eccles, Assistant to the Secretary of the Treasury, Treasury Department, Washington, D. C.
