tion desired relative to the operation of any office not under the Clerk be obtained from the appropriate officer of the House.

There is nothing unusual or complicated about this year's requests. Every single item is authorized by law or by resolution of the House.

We are here asking for virtually the same things we received last year. It is true that just a few of the items are in larger amounts, but there are justifications in each instance.

There are only two new items in the bill, and one of them is a normal requirement that comes up about every 6 years.

i. A clerk is provided for the House member of the NATO Parliamentarian's Conference. . .

2. Money is requested for the compilation of a new U.S. Code.

All other requests relate to the normal and routine functions of the House of Representatives... With few exceptions, the increases result from:

1. The. 10 percent overall increase in salaries of employees, or

2. New positions or salary increases as the result of the passage of House resolutions. Increases which do not fall into the above categories relate to requests from the Joint Committee on Internal Revenue Taxation; the attending physician's office; cost of handling mail; and the "Contingent and miscellaneous” items.

As regards the “Contingent and miscellaneous” items, the $150,000 for the compilation of the code represents by far the largest single increase. We try as best we can to estimate what expenditures will be required in this category, but by their very nature, accurate estimates are impossible.

The general rise in cost of services and materials, coupled with the 10 percent increase in pay, justify fully, in my opinion, all of the increases requested. • Further safeguards are thrown around the contingent expenditures by the requirement that each such expenditure must have my personal approval as well as that of the Committee on House Administration.

DETAILED ANALYSIS OF ESTIMATES FOR 1960 :: A very complete and detailed analysis of the entire budget has been prepared, as has been the custom in previous years, and I request that it be inserted in the record at this point. .. Mr. NORRELL. We would prefer that you follow the custom of taking up each item, and we can ask questions as we go along.

Mr. ROBERTS. Mr. Chairman, as I said, a copy of the item-by-item breakdown has previously been furnished to each member o: the committee. . Mr. NORRELL. That is what I am getting to now. Insert the summary list here and then take up the first item.
