Mr. BROOKs. Now, we can proceed, if you will, Mr. Ducander, and read the bill.
In the meantime, if we could have somebody from the Defense Department come forward there, we could ask questions as we read the bill.
Mr. DUCANDER. Mr. Deininger.
General Shuler, do you have your list for the Army Reserve at this time that you could submit?
General SHULER. Sir, I do not at this time, but General Palladino is here representing the Army Reserve, and I
Mr. BROOKS. Could he submit a list?
General SHULER. I feel, sir, that he has a statement that he would like to give the committee, and I believe it might involve the subject of additional projects, sir. He is here.
Mr. BROOKS. General Palladino-is it?
Mr. BROOKS. Just come forward, sir. Let us proceed. Do you have a statement to make to the committee, or one that you want to file?
General PALLADINO. We have a statement, Mr. Chairman, we would like to file for the committee, and we can answer any questions:
STATEMENT BY MAJ. GEN. RALPII A. PALLADINO, CHIEF, UNITED STATES ARMY
RESERVE AND ROTC AFFAIRS
Mr. Chairman, gentlemen, I am General Palladino, Chief of Army Reserve and ROTO Affairs. Let une say first that I appreciate the opportunity to appear before this committee on the subject of the Army Reserve construction program.
I would like to tell you about the progress we have made in the Army Reserve construction program. I will begin by giving you a brief report on the progress we have made to date under Public Law 783 of the S1st Congress, as amended. As you know, this law was enacted in fiscal year 1951. From chart inclosure 1 you will note that no new construction starts in this program were made until fiscal year 19.13. During this period, however, 45 centers were completed from funds which were made available under Public Law 218 for fiscal year 1950 and 1951. In fiscal year 1953, there were 31 construction starts. There were only 10 in 1954 and 16 in 1915. In fiscal year 1956 we had 38 construction starts and in fiscal year 1957 we had 65 construction starts. This gave the United States Army Reserve a grand total of 180 centers constructed or under construction by the end of fiscal year 1957 under Public Law 783. During fiscal year 1958 we plan an estimated 83 new starts. Of these, 34 were under construction and an additional 49 had been released for bid advertising as of May 1, 1958. To date 50 are under construction. Accomplishinents in new centers started in fiscal year 1957 and fiscal year 1958 will be equal to approximately 128 percent of the awards for the previous 6 years.
I am pleased to report that we have placed twenty-five 1-unit (modified) (100man) centers under construction to date and additional ones are scheduled for award. This is another step forward because these smaller buildings are located in communities where it is often difficult, if not impossible, to locate adequate lease space.
The 2d chart inclosure 2 gives you a brief summation of the status of our construction funds under Public Law 783. Up to this date a total of $105 million have been appropriated. You will note that by the end of fiscal year 1957, we had obligated $.74 million of the $70 million which had been appropriated. At the end of the third quarter of fiscal year 1958, we had obligated a total of $62 million. The total estimated obligation for fiscal year 1958 is $21 million which will bring us to a total of $75 million obligated by the end of fiscal year 1958. It is anticipated that $20 million of the remaining funds will be obligated in fiscal year 19.599 and the balance of $4,695,134 will be obligated in fiscal year 1.960.
In the leasing field, regulations on the criteria have been liberalized and steady progress has been made in the acquisition of more adequate leased space.
In order for an Army Reserve unit to train properly for its assigned mission, it must have suitable supplies and equipment. Quantities of supplies and equiųment on hand with Army Reserve units have continued to increase as rapidly as facilities for storage and personnel for maintenance have become available. Sufficient equipment is presently on hand with the units or available in United States Army Reserve equipment pools to assure the conduct of individual training for the number of personnel assigned. Our goal for the end of fiscal year 1958 is an overall average of 10 percent of table of organiaztion and equipment items,
80 percent of table of allowances for organizational clothing and equipment, and 100 percent of table of allowances for individual clothing and equipment.
Gentlemen, this concludes my statement on the Army Reserve construction program. If you have any questions, I will be glad to answer them.

Mr. BROOKS. Do you have a list of needed projects?
General PALLADINO. No, we do not have a list, but we have more than a sufficient number of projects already approved that we could throw in and construct, depending on the money appropriated to us.
Mr. Brooks. How much will your list total?
Mr. BROOKS. And they are all available and ready to go and needed?
