1 Under the provisions of the Postal Policy Act of 1958 (Public Law 85-426) the costs and losses deemed attributable to public services in 1962 were eliminated from the postal deficit by an appropriation of $62.7 million to postal revenues from the general fund. By Public Law 87-793 approved October il, 1962, these costs and losses, as redefined commencing with 1963, are not reimbursable to the postal fund as revenue, but are to be computed and excluded for purposes of determining overall revenue objectives. The above estimates for public services are preliminary estimates as the effect of the new law is in process of being computed.

i Does not include contingent receivables based on contested Civil Aeronautics
Board orders in the amount of $7.8 million and $7.9 million at June 30, 1962 and
1961, respectively.
• The changes in these items are reflected in the program and financing schedule.

: Liabilities do not include: (1) undetermined amounts of postage in the hands of
the public which, for practical considerations, have been accounted for as revenue
when sold, and (2) the following contingent and future obligations which by law the
Department may not fund or account for as obligations until payments are due: cor-
tingent liabilities for cases still pending before Civil Aeronautics Board in the
amount of $0.1 million at June 30, 1962, and contingent liabilities for pending suits
and damage claims $41.4 million and $32.3 million at June 30, 1962, and 1961, re-
spectively, a substantial portion of which are expected either to be settled at less
than the amount claimed or disallowed; and undeter mined amounts for employees'
accrued leave and long-term leases.
