Wo feel that changes of policy, or proposed new Policies vitally affecting the welfare of the individual states, should not be made without conference and con- notation with those charged with the duty of protecting and ad- vancing the interests of their people. We have, an earnest de- sire to be helpful and w 1 gladly give our aid to. any policy that may be soundly based upon the good of the nation, if the benefits conferred outweigh any detrimen- tal effect upon the states con- cerned.
