EXECUTIVE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT
NATIONAL AERONAUTICS AND SPACE COUNCIL Senator MAGNUSON. The committee will come to order. The first item we had for consideration, up for consideration, is the National Aeronautics and Space Council.
Dr. Welsh has sent us a letter which we will file, it will be placed in the record in full, and there is no—he didn't want to discuss any of the items any further. (The letter referred to follows:)
EXECUTIVE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT,
Washington, D.O., June 11, 1964.
DEAR MR. CHAIRMAN : The President requested $525,000 for the National Aeronautics and Space Council budget for fiscal year 1965. It was in support of such a figure that I testified before your committee, as well as before the House Appropriations Committee. This figure of $525,000 is an amount identical to that requested and appropriated for fiscal year 1964.
The House Appropriations Committee cut $25,000 from the $525,000 and proposed a figure of $500,000 for the Council. This cut, while curtailing the desired flexibility of the Council's operations, is not crippling to the Council. As a consequence, I am not making a reclama for the $25,000 cut by the House action.
As I understand it, since I am not making a reclania for the amount cut, it will not be necessary for me to appear before your committee again on the fiscal year 1965 budget. If, however, such appearance does seem necessary, please have me advised and I will make every effort to appear at your convenience. Most respectfully,
1. C. WELSH.
