Senator Kilgore. The committee will please come to order.

Today we begin the 1953 regular budget hearings for the Treasury Department. Our first witness will be the Secretary, Mr. Snyder. Before the Secretary reads his statement or summarizes it, whichever he prefers, I think it might be well to first inform members of the subcommittee that the 1953 appropriation estimate for regular operating expenses of the Treasury approximate $693 million, or about $73.7 million more than the 1952 appropriations.

Of this increase, over $33 million is for pay increases recently approved by the Congress, $27.2 million for the Bureau of Internal Revenue, and $10.7 million for the Coast Guard.

The balance of the increases requested relate to other bureaus in (he Department.

Now, Mr. Snyder, I note that your statement contains on page 9 an overfall summary of the regular and permanent appropriation requirements for 1953. I want to ask you to use your own discretion. If you want to file this statement in the record and high light it you may do so and make such remarks also as you want to before we hit the general summary. I am leaving that up to your discretion.
