MONDAY, JANUARY 31, 1949

UNITED STATES SENATE,
COMMITTEE ON INTERIOR AND INSULAR AFFAIRS,

Washington, D. C. The committee met, pursuant to call, at 10 a. m., in the Caucus Room, Senate Office Building, Senator Joseph C. O'Mahoney (chairman) presiding

Present: Senators O'Mahoney (chairman), McFarland, Anderson, Miller, Butler, Cordon, Ecton, and Watkins.

Also present: Representatives Murdock, D'Ewart, Bosone, Aspinall, Lemke, Crawford, White, Regan, Peterson, and Poulson; Delegates Bartlett and Farrington; Mills Astin, chief clerk.

The CHAIRMAN. The committee will please come to order.

We have done our best to have the Members of the House who have been good enough to put in their appearance this morning come forward to take seats around the table. Have they all come forward?

Apparently the Representatives of the House are here. Will you not rise, individually, and identify yourselves for the reporter, because I want this record to show clearly the very excellent attendance we are having from the House.

Congressman Murdock?

Representative MURDOCK. I am John R. Murdock, of the First Congressional District of Arizona.

Delegate BARTLETT. I am E. L. Bartlett, of Alaska.

Representative D'EWART. Wesley A. D'Ewart, Second District of Montana.

Representative Bosons. Reva Beck Bosone, Second District, Utah.

Representative ASPINALL. Wayne N. Aspinall, Fourth District, Colorado.

Representative LEMKE. William Lemke, North Dakota, Representative at Large.

Representative CRAWFORD. Fred L. Crawford, Michigan.
Delegate FARRINGTON. Joseph R. Farrington, of Hawaii.
Representative WHITE. Compton I. White, of Idaho.
Representative REGAN. Ken Regan, of Texas.
Representative PETERSON. J. Hardin Peterson, of Florida.

The CHAIRMAN. Mr. Secretary, the weather outside is very bad, and it is a long way from the House of Representatives. Congressman Poulson, of California-should I say southern California-has just arrived.

Representative Poulson. I appreciate the use of the weather in your introduction.

Secretary KRUG. I think during the course of these hearings I would like to have the committee explore what the Department of the Interior is trying to do to meet that emergency.
