By virtue of the authority vested in me by section 301 of title 3 of the United States Code, and as President of the United States, it is ordered that Executive Order No. 10289 of September 17, 1951, headed ‘‘Providing for the Performance of Certain Functions of the President by the Secretary of the Treasury’’ (3 CFR, ch.

The authority vested in the President by section 4228 of the Revised Statutes, as amended (46 U.S.C. 141),
to declare that— upon satisfactory proof being given by the government of any foreign nation that no discriminating duties of tonnage or imposts are imposed or levied in the ports of such nation upon vessels wholly belonging to citizens of the United States, or upon the produce, manufactures, or merchandise imported in the same from the United States or from any foreign country— the foreign discriminating duties of tonnage and impost within the United States are suspended and discontinued, so far as respects the vessels of such foreign nation, and the produce, manufactures, or merchandise imported into the United States from such foreign nation, or from any other foreign country, and
