responsibilities, planning, organization, coordination, controling, reporting, performance standards, delegating responsibility, communications, problem solving, and human relations. The course is offered periodically, for 10 11/2-hour sessions.
4. A lecture series that consists of lectures and conferences designed to increase the knowledge of staff members about the organization and functions of the Library. The course consists of 18 2-hour sessions and is offered every other week.
5. A special recruit program that consists of planned rotational work assignments, seminars, and discussion groups for a small group of selected staff members recruited from outstanding graduates of university library schools.
6. An-the-job training is conducted on an individual basis by the supervisor in his day-to-day contacts with the employee to help employees achieve maximum skill, knowledge, and efficiency in performing work assignments.
Mr. STEED. Does an employee having a certain type of work there who has aspired to a better job have any way that he can study and prepare himself for that promotion, as such?
Mr. ROGERS. In addition to the programs outlined by Dr. Mumford, we occasionally send people for out-of-institution training in some specialized field. For example, for unusual foreign languages, we let a man who is a scientist who has to function in a library position get one or two courses at a library school.
We sometimes send an employee to programs of the Brookings Institution.
Mr. STEED. Gentlemen, we want to express our appreciation for your appearance. It is very enlightening to hear about your activities.
Dr. MUMFORD. Thank you very much, sir. On behalf of my colleagues and myself, may I express our appreciation for your understanding and your patience in hearing our presentation.

Mr. ROBERTS. Mr. Chairman, it is a pleasure to appear before your subcommittee again to present the legislative budget of the House of Representatives for fiscal year 1963. I shall present to you the budget from the various offices of the House as submitted to me by them, together with such justifications therefor as were given to me. I shall be glad to answer any questions I can relative to the figures presented by the other offices of the House; however, should you desire more specific information concerning any phase of any other office outside of the jurisdiction of the Clerk, I respectfully request that the appropriate officer under whose jurisdiction the activity comes be called personally before the subcommittee to answer in more detail.
Gentlemen, the budget which I present today for fiscal year 1963 is virtually the same as last year, with the exception that we have had to take into consideration certain resolutions adopted by the House increasing some salaries and in other instances creating new positions.
The above resolutions account for the increased appropriations requested; however, I shall discuss each one as we reach the appropriate section of the bill.
