authorizing the construction of the Thomas Jefferson Territorial Expansion Memorial, in accordance with the plans and specifications of the United States Territorial Expansion Commission at an estimated cost of $30,000,000, recites: That the United States Territorial Expansion Memorial Commission created pursuant to public resolution approved June 15, 1934, recommended in its report of May 1, 1935, the establishment and construction of a permanent memorial, on the site and in accordance with the plans given in the report, at an estimated total cost of $30,000,000; that the city of St. Louis, Missouri, has agreed to contribute the sum of $7,500,000 to the estimated cost of the construction of the memorial; that the State of Missouri has consented to the acquisition by the United States of the lands necessary for such project; that the memorial will commemorate the territorial expansion of the United States and preserve the historical associations connected therewith for the benefit, education, and inspiration of the American people; and that the President finds that the construction of the Memorial will provide work relief and increase employment by providing for a useful project. It appears that only a part of the sum of $22,500,000 to be contributed by the Government

for the proposed project is now available. 362. 2. Same.Held: (1) The proposed project is one which the Presi

dent is authorized to adopt and prosecute under title II of the National Industrial Recovery Act and the Emergency

Relief Appropriation Act of 1935. 362. 3. Same.—(2) The President has no authority to commit the

Congress to future appropriations for the proposed project, THOMAS JEFFERSON TERRITORIAL EXPANSION MEMORIAL-Con.

and the Government may not legally accept the sum of $7,500.000 from the City of St. Louis unless the authorization for the project provides for its construction and completion with funds now available and at the disposal of the President.

362. 4. Same.—(3) Since the full sum of $22,500,000 required to be

contributed by the President is not now available for the

project the proposed Executive order is unauthorized. 362. 6. Same.—(4) If the Congress should adopt this project as a Fed

eral project, to be constructed at a cost of $30,000,000, the City of St. Louis to contribute $7,500,000 and the Government $22,500,000, the President would be authorized to adopt such portion of the project as he might desire, as a project to be carried out under title II of the National Industrial Recovery Act and the Emergency Relief Appropriation Act of 1935, and also to allocate thereto such funds as might then be available under the latter Act and to proceed immedi

ately with the expenditure of such allocation. 362. TITLE TO LAND.
