From House debate of Oct. 2:

Mrs. HALL of Indiana. Mr. Speaker, I ask unanimous consent that the Committee on Post Office and Civil Service be discharged from further consideration of the Senate joint resolution (S.J. Res. 273) to designate the week of August 5, 1984, through August 11, 1984, as "Smokey Bear Week," and ask for its immediate consideration.

The Clerk read the title of the Senate joint resolution.

The SPEAKER pro tempore. Is there objection to the request of the gentlewoman from Indiana?

Mr. COURTER. Reserving the right to object, Mr. Speaker, I will not object.

I reserve the right to object to let the Speaker know and everybody know that, obviously, the Republican Party and minority has no objections here. I do not think there are any speakers at the present time ad I will be happy to yield to the gentleman from Kansas.

Mr. GLICKMAN. I thank the gentleman for yielding to me.

Mr. Speaker, it is great that we are having a "Smokey Bear Week" but the week is long past. Why are we giving this week to something that happened 6 weeks ago? May I ask?

Mr. COURTER. Well, I do not think it is something that happened 6 weeks ago.

I yield to the gentlewoman from Indiana who brought the measure to the floor.

Mrs. HALL of Indiana. Mr. Speaker, I understand that the reason why it is just coming is that the bill was amended to this coming week, and that is the reason why we have Octoer 7 instead of 6 weeks ago.

Mr. GLICKMAN. Thank you.

Mr. COURTER. Mr. Speaker, the week is starting October 7, so we will be there very shortly.

Mr. Speaker, I withdraw my reservation of objection.

The SPEAKER pro tempore. Is there objection to the request of the gentlewoman from Indiana?

There was no objection.

The Clerk read the Senate joint resolution . . .
