SIX MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 16 ﾃつｷ 1936 CORNERSTONE OF NEW BUILDING IS LAID IN CAPITAL Roosevelt Pledges Renewed Efforts at Conserving U. S. Resources. WASHINGTON, Iff)--The cornerstone of the new $12,000,000 interior department building was laid Thursday by President Roosevelt who pledged renewed federal efforts to conserve the nation's natural resources. "As T view this serviceable new structure," the president said, "I Jike to think of it as symbolical of the nation's vast resources that we are sworn to protect and this stone that I am about to lay, as the cornerstone of a conservation policy that will guarantee to future Amer- icans the richness of their heritage." Secretary Ickes, summarizing efforts to prevent waste of natural resources on both private land and the public domain, called his chief "the greatest conservationist in American history." Use Washington Trowel. Members of the cabinet, and other officials looked on as the president, using the trowel with, which George Washington laid the cornerstone of the capitol building in 1793, sealed within the foundation stone of the huge new structure an American flag, a Bible, a pamphlet on the constitution, a bronze medalion oﾃつ｣ himself, an autographed photograph of Ickes and records showing present activities of the interior department Ickes traced the history of the department from its creation in 1849, then appealed to congress to change its name to that of the "conservation department" and thus "reverse the policy of exploitation that has existed before." "Every American who loves his country," the president said, "should take to heart the earnest plea of the secretary of the interior for a vigorous, continuing national policy of conservation. As for myself I am dedicated in this case. Bountifully Endowed. "A nation less bountifully endowed than ours without a national policy of conservation would have ceased to exist long ago. The remarkable thing was that the people of the United States were so complacent for so long in the face of exploitation, waste and mismanagement, yes. even larceny of the natural wealth that belonged to all the people." Reminding that the building was financed with a PWA allotment, Mr. Roosevelt said it was -a part of a program "which has already been successful .in aiding the return of the nation to better times." Ickes said that "more has been done during the slightly more than three years of the present administration in the direction of preserving and rebuilding the natural resources of America than has been done in any comparable time in our history." He listed new deal conservation activities, "implemented" with the labor of the civilian conservation corps, as: Eliminate Over-Grazing. Elimination of ' over-grazing on public land; efforts to combat soil erosion; acquisition of new national parks and forests and reforestra- tion- the Guffey coal act; the oil administration and the Connally act; control of water resources through such means as Boulder dam and tie Tennessee Valley authority; purchase and withdrawal from cultivation of unproductive land; additional wild life and bird refuges and efforts to combat stream pollution. A bill to rename the interior department was introduced by Senator Lewis (D-D1.) last year. Ickos said passage "would be declaratory of the intention of the United States government henceforth to go forward with a policy of conservation of our natural resources." Frederick A. Delano, an uncle of the president and chairman of the National Qapital Park and Planning commission, was master of ceremonies.
