Mr. ANDREws. Dr. Mumford, the committee will get into the details of the requests that you have highlighted, but we might take a few minutes to orient ourselves to the general situation.

SPACE PROBLEMS

We assume the Library is becoming more crowded every day as materials continue to come in, is that correct?

Dr. MUMFORD. Yes, sir.

Mr. ANDREws. We also assume you are becoming more cramped for space as you have grown with funds given you by Congress in the last several years, is that correct?

Dr. MUMFORD. Yes it is.

Mr. ANDREws. And this budget, as you .. calls for more, yet you are several years away from your new building at best?

Dr. MUMFORD. Yes, sir.

FUNDS UNDER HIGHER EDUCATION ACT

Mr. ANDREws. As we understand it, the new Higher Education Act passed last year and for which supplemental finuds are in the pending supplemental bill for 1966 authorizes a rather substantial boost in the program of the Library of Congress, and the Labor-HEW bill adopted in the House last week, under that bill I believe you are scheduled to get $3,000,000 for 1967 in addition to $300,000 in the pending supplemental for 1966?

Dr. MUMFORD. That is correct.

Mr. ANDREws. These are large amounts in relation to your regular budget in the bill before us today. I wish you would take a few minutes and briefly relate the two and explain the much enlarged operation and its objectives.

TOTAL FUNDS AVAILABLE

But before you start, let me ask you this: Will that $3,000,000 that you are scheduled to get under the bill the House passed last week for 1967 be in addition to the $31,146,000 total that you are requesting from this committee?

Dr. MUMFORD. Yes, sir.

Mr. ANDREws. That would give you, then, if this committee were to approve your request, approximately $34.1 million for the operation of the Library 7

Dr. MUMFORD. Something like that. It would be the $31,146,000 plus the $3 million.

Mr. ANDREws. That would be $34,146,000.

What other money would you have coming into your funds by way of reimbursements, et cetera?

Mr. MUMFORD. We have money that is transferred from other agencies to perform work for them because we have the necessary collections and the Library is the only agency that can do the work required. The total income, from all sources, is included in the appendix to our justification book, including gifts and trust funds as well as transfers from other agencies.

Mr. ANDREws. What page is that?

Mr. RossITER. A-2.

Mr. Andrews. We will insert this page A-2 in the record at this point.

(The page follows:)

[blocks in formation]

! Includes $477,700 supplemental request for pay increase (H. Doc. 405). : Includes $880,000 budget amendment (H. Doc. 431).

Mr. ANDREWS. This shows for 1967 your total funds available from all sources will be $41,982,360.

Dr. MUMFORD. Yes, sir.

Mr. ANDREWS. Does that include the $3 million that we mentioned as being in the Labor-HEW bill?

Dr. MUMFORD. No, sir; it does not. We do not have that money as yet and it is not appropriated directly to us.

Mr. Andrews. But if you get it, that would be a total of $14,982,360 ?
Dr. MUMFORD. Yes, sir.
Mr. ANDREWs. Is that all?
Dr. MUMFORD. Yes, sir.

Mr. ANDREWS. This chart shows that for 1966 your total funds available from all sources are $36,792,828. This is May of fiscal year 1966. How firm is that figure?

Mr. RossiTER. It is very firm, Mr. Chairman.

Mr. ANDREWS. You do not anticipate any further income or funds available ?

Mr. RossITER. No, sir. The only thing would be the $300,000 in the pending supplemental.

Mr. ANDREWS. If that is approved, then your total funds available for 1966 would be $37,092,828 ?

Mr. RossITER. That is right, sir.

Mr. ANDREWS. And the total funds available in 1965 from all sources as shown on this chart were $35,965,207. Was that a correct figure?

Mr. ROSSITER. Yes, sir.

REQUEST FOR NEW POSITIONS

Mr. Andrews. Doctor, I believe you stated you are asking for 58 new positions ?

Dr. MUMFORD. Under the appropriations title, “Library of Congress, salaries and expenses."

Mr. ANDREWS. How are these 58 employees designated ?

Dr. MUMFORD. Some of them are in the Processing Department, which is concerned with the acquisition and organizing of material,
