Letter to Secretary Roper on

^distribution of business deposits

With reference to the note I sent you Saturday on this subject,
I spent a couple hours today with Dr. Beckman, who is in charge of the
census of business. I broached the idea to him of the possibility of
obtaining information on business deposits, and he seemed to be very
favorably disposed. He suggested that we might work out some scheme
of cooperation whereby we would get the number of people employed in
banks on the December Slst call report, so that they would not have to
cover banks in their survey.
If you care, therefore, to send the letter I drafted to Secretary
Roper, I think the ground has been prepared a bit.
