Mr. ROONEY. They indicate that the request is in the amount of $690,000 which is contained in the item "Salaries and expenses, general administration.” This is the same amount as in the current fiscal year; is it, Mr. Myron?

Mr. Myron. Yes, sir. It is the same amount plus the amount for

pay raises.

Mr. ROONEY. Actually, this would mean a reduction of how many employees?

Mr. MyRon. This would mean the reduction, not in our present staff, because our present staff is now below the average number of employees authorized.

Nr. ROONEY. We are not talking about authorized staff.

Mr. MYRON. This would allow for the average employment of 48, which would be three less than the current fiscal year. .

NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES ON PAYROLL

Mr. Rooney. It would appear, according to page 30 of the bluecovered budget summary for the Department of Justice that you

had 52 on the payroll as of December 10, 1960.

Mr. Myron. As of now, Mr. Chairman, we have 48 employees on the payroll.

Mr. ROONEY. What do you have to say about this request, Mr Myron?

GENERAL STATEMENT

Mr. MyRON. I want to say first, Mr. Chairman, and members of the committee, that I have Mr. Jaffe with me. I brought him along with me today. He is the chief Government counsel in the Interhandel case, which our Office is handling.

Mr. Chairman and members of the subcommittee, I welcome this opportunity to discuss with you the present organization of the Office of Alien Property, its duties and responsibilities and the funds which will be needed in the coming fiscal year to meet these responsibilities. As you are well aware, the administrative expenses incurred in carrying out the functions of the Office are paid out of vested assets and not from appropriated funds. The amount that may be expended each year, however, is fixed by Congress by annual authorization.

, Since my appearance before this committee last year, there have been substantial organizational changes in the Office of Alien Property. Dallas S. Townsend, the Assistant Attorney General and Director of the Office of Alien Property resigned on July 22, 1960, and was then appointed a special assistant to the Attorney General with the title Director, Office of Alien Property. The Office was transferred as an integral unit, effective July 22, 1960, into the Office of the Attorney General. Colonel Townsend retired from Government service on January 19, 1961.

Mr. ROONEY. Let me interrupt you there.

GENERAL ANILINE & FILM CORP.

In this statement do you make reference to the presidency of General Aniline & Film and contracts entered into with the president and other officers of the corporation?

Mr. MYRON. I do not, Mr. Chairman.
Mr. ROONEY. What are the details in regard to these contracts?

Mr. MYRON. There are four existing contracts with officials of the General Aniline Corp. I am not too familiar with the terms of the contracts but the president of the corporation, Mr. Dinkins, who succeeded General Hildring as president, was appointed about a year ago and he has a 3-year contract as president and executive officer of the company.

Mr. ROONEY. When was that contract executed ?
Mr. MYRON. Sometime last year.
Mr. Rooney. Can you tell us when?

Mr. MYRON. I could provide it for the record. I do have the information in the office.

(The material referred to follows:)

The following are summaries of the contract which have been entered into by General Aniline & Film Corp., and certain of its principal officers :

A contract between the corporation and Mr. Hildring provides for his employment as a consultant on management problems for a period of 9 years commencing April 1, 1960, at the rate of $20,000 per annum for the first 8 years and at the rate of $15,000 for the ninth year plus traveling and living expenses incurred by him while away from home on business for the corporation in return for which he will be available a maximum of 60 days per year. In the event of his disability or death on or after April 1960, but prior to March 31, 1969, the corporation is obligated to pay Mr. Hildring or his estate, as the case may be, the same amount in the same manner as it would have paid had he continued rendering such service to March 31, 1969.

Mr. Philip M. Dinkins has a contract covering his employment as president and chief executive officer for the period June 1, 1960, to May 31, 1963, providing for a salary of $75,000 per annum. Contract further provides for his employment as a consultant on management problems for a period of 10 years commencing June 1, 1963, at the rate of $7,500 per annum plus traveling and living expenses while away from home on the business of the corporation in return for which he will be available a maximum of 60 days per year. In the event of disability or death on or after June 1, 1963, but prior to May 31, 1973, the corporation is obligated to pay him or his estate, as the case may be, the same amount in the same manner as it would have paid had he continued as such consultant to May 31, 1973.

In the event of his disability or death prior to June 1, 1963, the corporation shall pay him or his estate, as the case may be, in 10 equal annual installments the amount which bears the same proportional relationship to $75,000 as the number of months for which he shall have served as president and chief executive officer bears to the entire 36-months period referred to in the foregoing paragraph.

Mr. Francis A. Gibbons has a contract covering his employment as executive vice president for the period October 1, 1960, to September 30, 1963, providing for a salary of $50,000 per annum.

The contract further provides for his employment as a consultant on management problems for a period of 8 years commencing June 1, 1962, at the rate of $12,500 per annum for the first 4 years ending May 31, 1966, and at the rate of $11,250 per annum for the second 4 years ending May 31. 1970, plus traveling and living expenses while away from home on business of the corporation in return for which he will be available a maximum of 60 days per year. In the event of his disability or death on or aften June 1, 1962, but prior to May 31, 1970, the corporation is obligated to pay him or his estate, as the case may be, the same amount in the same manner as it would have paid had he continued rendering such service to May 31, 1970.

In the event of his disability or death prior to June 1, 1962, the corporation shall pay him or his estate, as the case may be, in eight equal annual installments a total sum equal to $50,000 plus an amount equal to $1,250 times the number of months during which he will have served under his contract after June 1, 1959.

Mr. Harold G. Shelton has a contract covering his employment as general manager of the Dyestuff & Chemical Division for the period March 1, 1960, to February 28, 1963, providing for a salary of $40,000 per annum.

Mr. ROONEY. Go ahead.
Mr. MYRON. Mr. Hildring who was the former president-
Mr. ROONEY. Tell us what the contract provides.

Mr. Myron. I would much prefer submitting it for the record, Mr. Chairman. It does provide for 3-year employment by the corporation at a fixed salary.

Mr. ROONEY. Approximately how much?
Mr. MYROX. About $75,000.
Mr. Rooney. You may correct the record, if you need to.
