HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,
COMMITTEE ON MERCHANT MARINE AND FISHERIES,

Washington, D.C. The committee met, pursuant to notice, at 10 a. m., Hon. Schuyler 0. Bland, chairman, presiding, for consideration of H. R. 5446.

The CHAIRMAN. The committee will come to order, please. We have met this morning for consideration of H. R. 5446, a bill to establish a system of unemployment insurance for the maritime industry, and for other purposes. Hearings were held on a similar bill on May 21, 22, and 24, 1940, and those hearings are available for the members of the committee, including those who were not members of the committee at that time. The Chair has agreed to hear first this morning, because of the necessity of his leaving early, Mr. J. J. Collins, adviser to the Independent Union, New York City. All right, Mr. Collins.

Mr. WELCH. Injuries and sickness?

The CHAIRMAN. Yes. That report was made to the Senate. I have not been able to go through it, but I have sufficient copies to send to all members of the committee.

Mr. WELCH. I read it very carefully, and it is interesting,
The CHAIRMAN. I am glad you have. All right, Mr. Latimer.

STATEMENT OF MURRAY W. LATIMER, CHAIRMAN, RAILROAD

Mr. LATIMER. Mr. Chairman and gentlemen of the committee, my name is Murray W. Latimer. I am Chairman of the Railroad Retirement Board. My statement has not been cleared with or approved by the Bureau of the Budget. At the hearings last year on H. R. 9798 held on May 21, 22, and 24, 1940, I discussed at some length the considerations underlying the establishment of a system of unemployment insurance for the maritime industry.
