Mr. WHITTEN. We have discussed with you the sales that we had for dollars. We would like to have here what part the sales manager plays in the sales for dollars that we have had with regard to these other commodities. Is he just a handy man and clerk that merely signs these things after the CCC Board of Directors makes the decision? Has he really any standing in the organizational setup? Has he any authority, any jurisdiction?
Mr. GODFREY. Yes; he does have.
Mr. GODFREY. The Administrator of the Foreign Agricultural Service is a vice president of the CCC and the general sales manager, representatives from his office, along with representatives from ASCS have played some-made some visits in connection with sales as a team to foreign countries and made sales for dollars. I couldn't name some right off, but I do recall several that have been before the Board. I can't name them, what they were. This has been done.
