th O¥ rnmcnt employees and the v rioua or nizations that represent
th n h \ im roved. Also there hc.s been more coordination between

1 have very fond memories of my association with Mr. Ellsworth
during the time that he served o.s my colleague in the House of
Rcproaontatives . I knc::w him as a kind and cntle man of great intellect.
During the tin.e that he served in the House he wns devoted to the cauae 1
