§ 75. Mr. BAKER
asked the Postmaster-General the names of the foreign companies associated with the Marconi Company in the South American Wireless Consortium; whether the consortium agreement provides that the wireless stations of the consortium companies shall not communicate with stations belonging to any party outside the consortium; whether the consortium seeks to establish a wireless monopoly; and whether the Marconi Company took the initiative in forming the consortium?
§ Mr. HARTSHORN
The foreign companies associated with the Marconi Company in the South American Wireless Consortium are the Radio Corporation of America, the Wireless Telegraph Company (Compagnie Générale de T.S.F.) of France and the Wireless Telegraph Company (Gesellschaft für Drahtlose Telegraphie) of Germany. The answer to the second part of the question is in the affirmative. I have no information as to which of the companies took the initiative in forming the consortium, and I should prefer not to express an opinion as to the objects for which it was formed.
