MAY 10, 1949.—Committed to the Committee of the Whole House and ordered

to be printed

Mr. BYRNE of New York, from the Committee on the Judiciary,

submitted the following

REPORT

[To accompany H. R. 1297]

the bill do pass.

The Committee on the Judiciary, to whom was referred the bill (H. R. 1297) for the relief of Alvin G. Patton, having considered the same, report favorably thereon with amendment and recommend that

The amendment is as follows:

At the end of bill add: Provided, That no part of the amount appropriated in this Act in excess of

per centum thereof shall be paid or delivered to or received by any agent or attorney on account of services rendered in connection with this claim, and the same shall be unlawful, any contract to the contrary notwithstanding. Any person violating the provisions of this Act shall be deemed guilty of a isdemeanor and upon conviction thereof shall be fined in any sum not exceeding

10

$1,000.

The purpose of the proposed legislation is to pay the sum of $221.13 toAlvin G. Patton, Los Angeles, Calif.; such sum represents payment fo-r 189 hours of accumulated annual leave earned by the said Alvin G. Patton while employed under contract N2445–37735, dated September 1, 1943, in the district security office, headquarters, Eleventh Naval District, San Diego, Calif., for the period beginning September 1, 1943, and ending June 30, 1944.

STATEMENT OF FACTS

It appears that Mr. Patton was employed by the Navy for approximately 9 months in the said district security office at the rate of $282 per month. During that period of time he accumulated 189 hours of leave which he did not receive. At the expiration of the 9 months period, June 30, 1944, the appropriation by Congress for persons employed in his status was discontinued and there was no ap

propriation for the period following June 30, 1944. Since the leave had not been taken prior to June 30, 1944, and since there was no appropriation for it thereafter, Mr. Patton was unable to receive payment for his accrued annual leave upon termination of the contract of employment on June 30, 1944,

The Judge Advocate General of the Navy states that the Navy Department interposes no objection to the enactment of the bill, therefore your committee recommends favorable consideration of the bill.

At the expiration of the 9 months' period, June 30, 1944, the appropriation by Congress for persons employed in his status was discontinued and there was no appropriation for the period following June 30, 1944.

Records in this office show that you were employed under Contract N2448-37735 dated September 1, 1943, in the district security office, Headquarters, Eleventh Naval District, San Diego, Calif., for the period of September 1, 1943, to June 30, 1944, inclusive, at the monthly rate of $282.

(c) Due to the fact that authority for the employment of Security inspection force civilian agents on a contract basis was terminated by the Naval Appropriation Act, 1945, and funds for such purpose were not available after June 30, 1944, my services were terminated without an opportunity to take the accumulated annual leave.
