Mr. WHITTEN. Gentlemen, we are glad to have with us Dr. George L. Mehren, Assistant Secretary of Agriculture. We have appreciated the fact this year that we have had with us for each hearing a representative of the Secretary's office. We think that is much better. We haven't had to direct many questions to them, but from time to time we do run into policy matters, which puts those who are not in the Secretary's office somewhat on the spot to attempt to answer the questions.

Today we have before us Mr. S. R. Smith, Administrator, Agricultural Marketing Service and Mr. Lennartson, Associate Administrator.

We are glad to have you gentlemen, as well as Dr. Herrmann and others with us today. We shall be glad to have your presentation.

Prior to that, I should like to have pages 47 through 52, 54, 55, 99, 106, 112, and 120 through 122 of volume II of the justifications, inserted in the record at this point.
