Dear Mr. President

Doctor Stratton D. Brooks, of Norman, Oklahoma, has found it necessary, owing to the stress of affairs in connection with his activities with the University, to resign from the position of Federal Food Administrator for the State. We are sorry to lose his services as he has done good work in building up an organization throughout Oklahoma.

After careful consideration, I wish to recommend, as Doctor Brooks’ successor, Mr. CB Ames, of Oklahoma City

.Mr. Ames is strongly endorsed by Governor Williams, Senator Owen, Congressman Ferris, and Doctor Brooks himself, together with having the recommendation of many other leading citizens of the State. He is at present Chairman of the Liberty Loan Committee, but after April fifteenth will be in a position to give his entire time - as a volunteer - to this war work. He is one of the leading lawyers of Oklahoma.

Faithfully yours,
Herbert Hoover


Approved
Woodrow Wilson
5 April, 1918
