Latour, Pre,ident of the International Olympic Committee, to speak at the opening of the Congress. Counl de :Baille/-La/ou, .addressed the Assembly. in The iotio1fing words: >,.'Ir. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen, I heartily remember the pleasure of being with you at the Hague t,,·o years ago "'hen your federation held a Congress there, and it "'as therefore a !<Teat joy to me to accept your kind invitltion to come here and gil'e you my greetings. It is a real pleasure to meet you here ag.in to-day and to thank yOll on behalf of the Olympic Committee for all the trouble your federation has taken in .preparing tile athletic events of tile Olympic Games at Amsterdam, because your athletic e"ents form the most impor\:int part of the Games. I am looking forn-ard to the benefit Holland "'ill receive by taking care of the athletic sport of these Olympic Games, as I recognise much athletic sport has been impro"ed in my o",n country, Belgium, since the Olympic Games were held at Ant«·erp. Unfortunately, in some of our countries, the.lo\'e of athletics is not great enough, because people are more "'hat ",;e call spectators. of s[lort, but the\' ought to understand that amongst all sport athletics are the be;!. There . is yet another link bel1X'een the I. O. C. and your Federation. namely that ;:'e both Im'e \.he same high ideals about amateurism: 'X'e do not think anyone should economical benefit from sport Md I thank your federation for the help it Ius al'X'ays given us in this respect in the P45t "-nd "X'hidl I feel sure it will. continue to give us in the future also. I thank you and wish yOlI a g,XJd ind \"aluable result of your ,"ork during the rh,' Plt'sidml thanked Count de Baillet-La.tour in the • folloq'ing terms: »Count B.lillet-Latour, my de1r Preikkllt. , You have h.ld many ne\::oti.!lions 'X'ith international FederJtions I1king- plrt -in tile Olympic Games.

MINUTES OF TIrE TENTH CONGRESS of the International Amateur Athletic Federation held in the "Herrenhaus", Berlin, the 20th and 21st of May, 1930.

Tuesday, May 20th, at 10 a.m.

) SECTION 1. Reception of the Delegates to the Congress by the German Authorities. Excellence Dr. Th. Lewald, President of the "Deutscher Reichsausschuss flir Leibeslibungen" and the German Olympic Committee. opened the Congress by bidding the Delegates welcome saying that it was a great honour and pleasure to the D.R.L. and the German Olympic Committee that the Congress of the International Amateur Athletic Federation would now be held in Berlin. the same city where 17 years ago this important Federation had been definitely founded. During this time sad happenings had taken place in the world which had interrupted also the relations between the sporting peonle of the various nations, but he felt that this was now past. He knew that the I.A.A.F. had the whole time proceeded with its work which aimed at bringing up the youths not only physically strong but also with high. . ideals. He thanked the Federation for the grand work it had done during its existence and congratulated it on having wisely chosen as its leader a man whose name was kno,vn, respected and beloved by the whole sporting world. Under his eminent leadership the I.A.A.F. had succeded in working out complete rules which regulate the athletic sports the vfllole world over. Dr. Lewald finally expressed the hope that this Congress would contribute to the further progress of the I.A.A.F. under its distinguished leader, President Edstrom, and his able assistants.

Dr. Mallwitz. Member of the Public Welfare Board of the Prussian Government im Preuss. Ministerium flir Volkswohlfahrt/, thereafter addressed the Delegates saying that he brought greetings from the Prussian Government and expressing wishes of welcome to all present. He hoped that the members of the Congress while in Berlin would also have a chance of seeing a little of the art and culture as well as the surroundings of Bsrlin. He further brought


greetings from the Minister of Physical Education Congress. He emphasised the influence of physical edupation on the character and congratulated the Federation to the good work it had done during the past to promote this aim. Dr. Mallwitz, vn,o had himself been an active sportsman and as such taken part in the Olympic Games 1906 in Athens and 1908 in London, finished his speech by wishing the Congress great success.

Mr. F. P. Lang, President of the Deutsche Sportsbehorde fUr Leichtathletik, spoke on behalf of his federation, bidding the Members of the I.A.A.F. heartily welcome. Quite specialy he greeted its honoured President, Mr. Edstrom, and Mrs. Milliat. President of the Federation Sportive Feminine Internationale. In order to give some idea of the development of athletic sports in Germany he kindly invited the members of the Congress to some most interesting athletic events which had been specially arranged to take place in Berlin in honour of the Congress. Mr. Lang finally expressed the hope that the work of the Berlin Congress would further the international understanding and help to make the sporting relations between the different countries more and more friendly.

President Edstrom rose and thanked in the name of the I.A.A.F., Exoellence Lewald, Dr. Mallwitz and Mr. Lang for their kind words of welcome and the hospitality given the Federation. He said that it was a special pleasure ,to hold the Congress in Berlin not only because :tNxaxl1xRx±REXWaaXll:NRxN:fi'xxNRxlllNEXXll::a:ksxaMd±MgxRNRN±x:i::RExN the I.A.A.F. had been definitely founded there 17 years ago, but also because Germany with regard to athletics was one of the most outstanding countries of the world. Athletic sports and physical culture in general were taught here with the usual German thoroughness and he hoped that as great a nVllber as possible of the members of the Congress would be able to attend the athletio events taking plaoe in Berlin during the following days.
