These resolutions are self-explanatory. The first 3 were adopted during the second session of the 82d Congress, and the remaining 6 during the present session of the 83d Congress. In some instances new positions are created, some vacated, and in others schedules of certain salaries have been changed. These resolutions provide for expenditures out of the contingent fund of the House until otherwise provided by law, and will be referred to by the appropriation paragraphs affected, as each such paragraph is reached in the budget estimates.

|OFFICE OF THE SPEAKER For the "Office of the speaker, $47,285”; the same as appropriated for the current fiscal year 1953.

SPEAKER'S TABLE

For the "Speaker's table, $43,885”; which is also the same as appropriated for 1953, there being no change in the paragraph.

OFFICE OF THE CHAPLAIN

For the "Office of the chaplain, $2,950,” as compared with $7,245, appropriated for 1953, or a decrease amounting to $4,295. Due to the death of the late Dr. Shera A. Montgomery, the position of chaplain emeritus was automatically vacated.

OFFICE OF THE CLERK

For the "Office of the clerk, $684,265," as compared with $664,648, appropriated for 1953, or an increase of $19,617. This increase is due to the following: an "assistant property custodian” at the basic rate of $2,800, as authorized by House Resolution No. 725, 82d Congress; "editor and laboratory supervisor”; and a “script writer and general secretary” at the basic salary rates of $4,020 and $2,500, per annum, respectively, which positions were created by the "Second Supplemental Appropriation Act of 1953,” Public Law No. 11, 83d Congress; $745, additional longevity pay for telephone operators, as authorized by law, and for the restoration of an amount of $6,193, which was cut from the total 1953 budget estimates covering existing statutory salaries authorized by law.
