Recommends Kaufman As U.S. Minister to Denmark

Senator David Reed of Pennsylvania has recommended the appointment of David E. Kaufman of Philadelphia and Towanda, Pennsylvania, as United States minister to Denmark. Mr. Kaufman, now minister of Siam, would fill the vacancy in Copenhagen existing since the recent death of Ralph H. Booth. The recommendation was taken here as tantamount to appointment.

Mr. Kaufman first entered the diplomatic service two years ago when he was appointed minister to Bolivia. He served in the South American country for one year and upon his return last summer was named minister to Siam where he remained seven months, returning to America two months ago shortly after the arrival of the king and queen of Siam for whose visit he is believed to be responsible.
