COMPILERS' NOTE

The previous volumes of this work for each session of Congress from the Fiftieth
to the Sixty-seventh, inclusive, covering the fiscal years 1889 to 1924, inclusive, have
contained tabulations in accordance with law, showing offices created and omitted
and offices the salaries of which have been increased or reduced. Such tabulations
have been eliminated from this publication under the authority contained in the
legislative appropriation act approved June 7, 1924, and reading as follows:

“In lieu of the data relating to offices created and omitted and salaries increased
and reduced, the statement shall hereafter contain such additional information con-
cerning estimates and appropriations as the committees may deem necessary.”

The classification act of 1923, as amended, providing a method for classification

of positions in the District of Columbia, salary schedules and ratings for such posi-

tions, and provision for automatic promotions, effective on July 1, 1924, makes

impossible the compilation of accurate and useful statements of the character

above referred to.

This volume, pursuant to the above-quoted authority, contains detailed state-

ments showing each item of appropriation made during the session and each Budget
estimate submitted by the President aud the increase or decrease in the Budget
estimate compared with the appropriation in each instance.

Part II of the legislative appropriation act for the fiscal year 1933 (known as

the economy act) provides reductions in compensation, furlough without pay, and

other decreases applicable to the appropriations herein contained for the fiscal year

1933. The estimated savings to result from the impounding of appropriations and

reduction in expenditures through the application of the provisions of the act is

$150,000,000.
