[merged small][ocr errors][merged small]

Mr. JOHNSON of Oklahoma. As the members of the committee know, this is the first meeting of the Interior Department Subcommittee on Appropriations during this session to consider estimates for the fiscal year 1942. We regret that Chairman Taylor cannot be with us today, but we are hopeful that he will be back before the hearings are over. This year, as in years past, the chairman has asked me to act as chairman and this year, as we have in the past, we are dividing the work of this committee. I have assigned different agencies to respective members of the subcommittee, and trust that such assignmnts will be satisfactory.

It will be used that there are one or two new activities included in this bill that we did not have last year, and some of the agencies we had last year will be considered this year by other subcommittees.

We have one new committee member, Mr. Jones, of Ohio. He has been assigned the Fine Arts Commission and the office of the United States High Commissioner to the Philippine Islands.

I have nothing special to say, in the way of a preliminary statement, except that we have an increase, over all, in the estimates for the Department of 3% percent, or, in other words, a net increase of $5,540,025.11 over the appropriations for 1941. This is made up principally of increases for the Bonneville Power Administration, the National Park Service, and the Geological Survey. We
