Mr. STEGER. Mr. Courtney, yesterday you asked Captain Wells to bring to the hearing today a number of other papers connected with this particular procurement. I believe you have those papers, Captain Wells, do you not?

Mr. HÉBERT. May I ask what does the summary reflect? Does it reflect a favorable delivery schedule?

Captain WELLs. In my opinion, it reflects very favorably on Collins performance, Mr. Chairman.

Mr. HÉBERT. I don't want the details. The record will show the details. But I just want to be sure.

All right, Mr. Courtney.

Captain WELLS. I have additional copies, sir, if you should require them. [Handing documents.]

Mr. COURTNEY. Now let us come back, Captain, to our discussions of yesterday and get the basic papers with which we are to be concerned. The first of these would be the Commandant's requisition of October 1961

Captain WELLS. If I may, sir, I have attempted to collect these into three packages, which I believe are in logical sequence.

Mr. COURTNEY. Very good.

Captain WELLS. I shall read the list of contents of the first package, sir.

Mr. COURTNEY. All right. Captain WELLS. Which primarily concerns itself with requisitions, which are the basis

Mr. COURTNEY. Basic documents.
Captain WELLS. Basic documents,
Mr. COURTNEY. Very good.

Captain Wells. The package, sir, contains documents Air Force MIPR M-1281 dated June 20, 1961; Air Force MIPR, dated May 21, 1962; a further MIPR, dated May 23, 1962. The effect of these is to generate an Air Force requirement as of this time, sir, of a total of 28.

This contains further: Headquarters, U.S. Marine Corps, MIPR, 2724031, of October 24, 1961, with amendments dated November 3, 1961, December 7, 1961, January 4, 1962, and January 26, 1962. This series of MIPR's establishes the Marine Corps statement of requirements of 556 units, sir.

Mr. COURTNEY. This is the basic series of papers—that generated this or start this whole proceeding?

Captain Wells. This indeed is, sir. Mr. COURTNEY. Very good. May we mark that, Mr. ChairmanCaptain WELLS. I have further in that, sir. A statement in the list of contents to the effect that the Bureau of Ships' requirements, rather than being in this series of papers, is attached to a justification signed by Mr. Shaup, dated November 17, 1961, which I subsequently shall offer, sir.

Mr. COURTNEY. Very good. Captain WELLS. I have also the Signal Corps MIPR's of February 20, 1962, as amended on March 14, 1962, which establish an Army requirement of a total of 12. That is this total package, sir.

Mr. COURTNEY. Thank you very much, Captain.
Now this will be marked "Exhibit 7," Mr. Chairman.
Mr. HÉBERT. Without objection, we will receive the exhibit.

(The document referred to, marked “Exhibit 7,” is as follows (Air Force, Army MIPR's retained in committee files) :)

Radio Sec AN/PRC-41 was developed by Collins Radio Company, Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Because of the techniques involved in its manufacture and the "know hown already available at Collins Radio Company, it is felt that it would be uneconomical to attempt to train another source in the manufacture of this item in the short time frame available.
