This is one of two books which constitute Title 32–National Defense,
revised as of December 31, 1951. Together they replace the single volume
published in 1949 entitled Title 32-National Defense and Title 34-
National Military Establishment, and become an integral part of the Code
of Federal Regulations. In consolidating the material contained in the
1949 volume with subsequent changes and additions, there have been
included all rules and regulations, general and permanent in nature, duly
published in the Federal Register on or before December 31, 1951, and
effective as to facts arising on or after January 1, 1952.
This book is provided with a pocket for the insertion of annual cumula-
tive supplements. Current regulatory material appearing in the daily
issues of the Federal Register follows the numbering system used herein
and serves as a daily supplement hereto. The book contains a subject
index. It also contains lists of sections affected since the publication of
the 1949 volume which furnish Federal Register citation to all changes in the
material since January 1, 1949, including those which are no longer in effect.
This book is published pursuant to Part 2 of the regulations of the Admin-
istrative Committee of the Federal Register, approved by the President
October 11, 1948 (13 F. R. 5935; 1 CFR Part 2), under the authority
contained in section 11.(d) of the Federal Register Act as amended (50
Stat. 305; 44 U. S. C. 311 (d)). The contents of the Federal Register
and of the Code of Federal Regulations are by law prima facie evidence of
the text of the original documents and are required to be judicially noticed
(49 Stat. 502, 50 Stat. 304; 44 U.S. C. 307, 311 (c)).
A General Preface to the Code of Federal Regulations appears in
Title 1-3 and also in the General Index volume.
