653875 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 concerning 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 positions, and provision for administrative 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 statements showing each item of appropriation made during the session and each Budget estimate submitted by the President and the increase or decrease in the Budget estimate compared with the appropriation in each instance.
This compilation contains laws affecting or making appropriations which were enacted during the second session of the Seventy-seventh Congress, with the exception of private relief acts containing appropriations. Such private acts have been omitted from this compilation but a summary thereof containing the number of the act, the beneficiaries, and the amount appropriated is included. This compilation has been closed as of October 31, 1942, and includes public laws of the session to and including 768 and private laws to and including 515.
