BUDGET REQUEST

Senator STENNIS. The subcommittee will come to order.

Dr. Mumford, this is an important matter, a very important branch of the Government, and a very important matter with the people and the Congress, so there is no disposition to rush through it at all.

First I want to say the Library of Congress has requested for the fiscal

year 1960 a grand total of $14,327,600 and the House of Representatives has allowed a total of $14,292,900 or a minor reduction of $34,700.

The amount allowed by the House is $903,709 over the appropriations for the current fiscal year.

Pages 1, 2, and 3 from the justifications will be inserted into the record.
