Appropriated to Department of State and transferred to House of Representatives.

Mr. Roberts. For the fiscal year 1954, $1,250,000 was appropriated; for the fiscal year 1955, $1,250,000; for the fiscal year 1956, $1,700,000 ; for the fiscal year 1957, $1,690,000 : $60,000 additional was authorized to be transferred from the contingent fund by House Resolution No. 295, and for the fiscal year 1958, $2,275,000. We are requesting $2,500,000 for 1960, as compared with $2,200,000 appropriated for 1959, or an increase of $300,000. Of the $2,200,000

appropriated for 1959, we have expended $1,763,280, leaving a balance of $621,720, on April 1, 1959.

JOINT COMMITTEE ON INTERNAL REVENUE TAXATION Mr. NORRELL. If there are no questions, we will now take up the item of Joint Committee on Internal Revenue Taxation. We appropriated in the current year $264,000, and you are requesting $295,000.

Mr. ROBERTS. For the payment of salaries and other expenses for the Joint Committee on Internal Revenue Taxation, fiscal year 1960, $295,000, as compared with $264,000 appropriated for 1959, or an increase of $31,000.

This estimate was submitted as requested, and if your committee desires any further information regarding this particular item, I respectfully refer you to Hon. Wilbur D. Mills, chairman, and Colin F. Stamm, chief of staff, Joint Committee on Internal Revenue Taxation.

Joint COMMITTEE ON IMMIGRATION AND NATIONALITY POLICY Mr. ROBERTS. For salaries and expenses of the Joint Committee on Immigration and Nationality Policy, $20,000; the same as that appropriated for 1959.

I do not see why that should be appropriated because the money has never been used.

Mr. NORRELL. Is there any reason why we should appropriate for this item?

Mr. ROBERTS. I do not see any reason.
Mr. NORRELL. We will check on that.

OFFICE OF THE COORDINATOR OF INFORMATION Mr. NORRELL. We will now take up the item of the Office of the Coordinator of Information.

Mr. ROBERTS. For salaries and expenses of the Office of the Coordinator of Information, our estimate for the fiscal year 1960 amounts to $98,970; the same as appropriated for 1959, there being no change in this paragraph.

TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH SERVICE Mr. NORRELL. We will now take up the "Telephone and telegraph service.

Mr. ROBERTS. For the fiscal year 1960, we estimate $1,400,000, compared with $1,300,000 appropriated for 1959, or an increase of $100,000. This increase of $100,000 is estimated to take care of, in part, the increase granted to the Western Union Telegraph Co. of approximately 7 percent, and the provisions of Public Law 289, approved September 4, 1957. The telegraph and telephone allowance was changed from a session basis to a term basis, which permitted any Members not using their allowance in the first session to carry over the balance to the second session, which would increase the amount, of course, for the fiscal year 1960.

As you know, Mr. Chairman, each Member is entitled to 6,000 minutes per term for official long-distance telephone calls and 40,000 words for official telegrams per term. Due to the change from a

session basis to a term basis, this appropriation is somewhat more difficult to estimate accurately.

This appropriation is not only used for official telegraph and telephone services for each Member of Congress, but also for committees and departments of the House of Representatives, as well as for rental of telephone equipment on the House side of the Capitol and the two House Office Buildings.

Mr. NORRELL. We appropriated on this item $1,300,000 this year. The request is for $100,000 increase. How much is left now? I do not use all of my telephone allowance.

Mr. ROBERTS. We appropriated $1,300,000. We have a balance of $578,407 at the present time. We have to use about $72,288 a month. That is about the average. We estimate that it may take the other $100,000.

Mr. STEED. In that connection I do not use all of mine, either. What do the other years show? Do you ever have any surplus in this fund?

Mr. Roberts. It is an arbitrary allocation with the contingent fund, and if it is not used it is transferred to some other fund. It is usually used, all of it.

Mr. Norrell. I did not use all of my money for telephone, and
stamps, long distance calls or stamps. We might be able to cut a
little here. I do not know.
Mr. ROBERTS. Yes.

NT COMMITTEE ON IMMIGRATION AND NATIONALITY POLICT

STATIONERY REVOLVING FUND

ROBERTS. For salaries and expenses of the Joint Committee
imigration and Nationality Policy, $20,000; the same as that
priated for 1959.
o not see why that should be appropriated because the monet
ver been used.

NORRELL. Is there any reason why we should appropriate for
em?
ROBERTS. I do not see any reason.
NORRELL. We will check on that.

Mr. Norrell. We will now take up the stationery revolving fund. Mr. ROBERTS. For stationery, an allowance of $1,800, for each Representative, Delegate, and the Resident Commissioner from Puerto Rico, for the 2d session of the 86th Congress, $788,400. While this is the same as appropriated for the fiscal year 1959, you will recall at the last session, an additional $600 stationery allowance was made available by House Resolution No. 628, approved July 10, 1958, and appropriated for in the supplemental bill 85-766, 1959. However, for the 1st session of the 86th Congress, only $1,200 has been made available. Mr. NoRRELL. Last year we had some discussion of the accumulation of profits from the stationery room.

We made some comments in the report about prices and so forth. What have you done about the situation?

Mr. Roberts. Since every Member of Congress has such close contact with the House stationery room, it usually comes up for discussion during our annual appropriation hearings.

It is my firm conviction that, in spite of some difficulties in the past, we now have an economical, efficient, and properly operated The stationery room is operated under the jurisdiction of the Clerk of the House of Representatives pursuant to law and House resolution of July 24, 1868, for the purpose of supplying the Members

, committees, and officers of the House with stationery. The operation of the stationery room is financed through a revolving fund established by the act of July 17, 1947 (2 U.S.C. 46b-11).
