What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Washington—The Immigration bill was signed May 26 by President Cool- ldge. Deaplte the provision making Japanese exclusion effective next July 1, put Into the measure over his vig­ orous opposition .the president decid­ ed, because of other considerations, to give the executive approval necessary to spread the legislation on the statute books. It was pointed out that, inasmuch as the present immigration ktw expires on June 30, a veto might have made it necessary to m-di through an emergency measure In ttie Closing hours of the session. Such a step, the president felt, would not be practicable in view of the tangled legislative situation, and the certainty that any emergency pro­ vision would be beset by many at­ tempts at amendment and possibly blocked altogether. As soon as he had fixed his signa­ ture to the bill, however, the president began preparation of a statement ex­ pressing his disapproval of the failure of congress to provide for a longer delay In the effective date of Japanese exclusion.
