MONDAY, DECEMBER 19, 1966

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,
COMMITTEE ON HOUSE ADMINISTRATION,
SPECIAL SUBCOMMITTEE ON CONTRACTS,

Washington, D.C. The subcommittee met at 10:30 a.m., in room 2255 Rayburn House Office Building, Hon. Wayne L. Hays (chairman) presiding.

Members present: Messrs. Hays, Jones, Nedzi, Lipscomb, Devine, and Dickinson.

Also present: Daniel L. O'Connor, associate counsel; C. William Tayler, associate counsel; and Julian Langston, chief clerk.

Mr. Hays. Gentlemen, I will read a statement. You will be furnished with a copy. There will be two or three explanations of sections which will be off the cuff, but otherwise you will have a copy of this statement.

If there are witnesses out in the hall who want to hear the opening statement, they may come in, Mr. Langston.

Mr. LYONS (member of the press). Will you read this straight through so we will know what is off the cuff and what is text?

Mr. Hays. I will tell you.

Will you hand copies of the text now. so that the members of the press can make notes? There is no reason they should not have the opening statement.

Ladies and gentlemen, the Special Subcommittee on Contracts of the Committee on House Administration is today conducting hearings into certain alleged irregularities which have been referred to it for investigation by the Committee on House Administration. The irregularities which we inquire into today and which have been referred to us for investigation are:

1. That the name of Y. Marjorie Flores appears to be one of the clerks employed by Member Adam C. Powell although said clerk is reported to perform no official duties for which compensation from appropriated funds is paid and that the services, if any, rendered by said clerk are not performed in the District of Columbia or in the Member's State or district as required by Public Law 89–90, 89th Congress.

2. That during the 89th Congress the Committee on Education and Labor has reported as employed on its rolls a total of 149 clerks. This large number of employed personnel has been suggested to this committee to be inconsistent and incompatible with the duties and responsibilities assigned to the Committee on Education and Labor.

3. That expenditure from contingent funds for travel by the Committee on Education and Labor during the 89th Congress totaled $73,000 through September 30, 1966, whereas the average expenditure for travel by other committees of the House during this same period was less than $15,000.
