This fourth supplement to the 1970 edition of the United States Code contains the additions to and changes in the general and permanent laws of the United States enacted during the Ninety-second Congress and the Ninety-third Congress. This supplement together with the 1970 edition establishes prima facie those laws in effect on January 2, 1975, except that titles 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10, 13, 14, 17, 18, 23, 28, 32, 35, 37, 38, 39, and 44, having been enacted into law, establish legal evidence of the law contained in those titles.

In addition to the general and permanent laws found herein, this supplement Includes the Bankruptcy Rules and Official Bankruptcy Forms, effective October 1, 1973, set out in the Appendix to Title 11; the Rules of Procedure of the Judicial Panel of Multi-district Litigation, set out following section 1407 of Title 28; the Federal Rules of Evidence, effective July 1, 1975, set out in the Appendix to Title 28; and the Rules of United States Court of Customs and Patent Appeals, effective January 1, 1974, set out in the Appendix to Title 35. These rules are incorporated into the Code to enable the user to locate in one convenient place not only the statutory enactments but also the latest procedural developments in certain specialized areas.

Increased interest in the affairs of the District of Columbia is also evident by new reference material first set out in the third supplement. Two new Tables, Tables III-A and III-B, have been added as aids in determining the relationship between provisions of the United States Code and the District of Columbia Code.

This supplement continues the practice of setting out notes captioned "Section referred to in other sections". These notes have been inserted following each section that is referred to in the text of another section, indicating the section that contains the internal reference. These notes have proved to be useful to the Congress, the bench and bar, and the public.

This supplement has been prepared under the supervision of Edward F. Willett, Jr., law revision counsel of the Committee on the Judiciary, House of Representatives, with the assistance of the West Publishing Company, of St. Paul, Minnesota, which assisted in preparing all prior editions and supplements of the Code. Grateful acknowledgment is made of the cooperation by all who have helped in this work, particularly by the staffs of the publishing company and of the law revision counsel for this committee, and by the several sections of the Government Printing Office.
