Mr. BRYSON. Mr. Barnes.

Mr. HARRIS. Mr. Chairman, may I introduce two letters, one from the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics and one from the New Jersey Patent Law Association?

Mr. BRYSON. Yes.

Mr. WILLIS. What is the substance of their position?

Mr. HARRIS. The New Jersey Patent Law Association is opposed. The National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics has no interest in the proposed legislation but the executive secretary of that association expresses his personal opposition.

(Letters referred to follow :)



Chairman, Committee on the Judiciary,

Washington, D, C., June 19, 1951.

House of Representatives, Washington 25, D. C.

DEAR MR. CELLER: Permit me, in the absence of Chairman Hunsaker, to reply to your letter of May 22 and your earlier communication of March 9 in which you requested an expression of the views of this Committee concerning two bills, H. R. 323 and H. R. 4054, relating to patents.

H. R. 323 is intended to provide for the extension of terms of patents in cases in which the use, exploitation, or promotion thereof was prevented, impaired, or delayed by causes due to war, national emergency, or other causes. As written, the bill includes in section 6 (b) a provision that no extension granted thereunder shall in any way serve as a basis for any claim by reason of manufacture, use, or sale by or for the United States during the period of extension. Inasmuch as the rights of the United States are to remain unchanged under the bill, it does not appear that this agency has any interest in this proposed legislation.

I would like to add that I do not personally favor the proposed legislation because of the difficulties which would undoubtedly be encountered in its administration and the consequent burden which would be placed upon the Patent Office, and, also, because it would favor one particular class of citizens, the holders of United States patents, to the exclusion of others who also suffer from the effects of war.

H. R. 4054, although limited in application to a specific period of time, contains essentially the same provisions as H. R. 323, and the same comments apply. In view of the foregoing statement, it does not appear to be necessary for the NACA to be represented at the scheduled hearing on June 20.

The Bureau of the Budget advises that there is no objection to the submission of these comments.

Sincerely yours,

J. F. VICTORY, Executive Secretary.

Newark, N. J., May 18, 1951.


House of Representatives, Washington, D. C. (Attention: C. Murray Bernhardt, Esq.)


WHEREAS: the New Jersey Patent Law Association opposes in principle H. R. 323 (Reed), H. R. 3231 (Davis), and H. R. 4054 (Walter), which, in general, provide for the extension of terms of patents not fully utilized by reason of war or other emergency; and

WHEREAS: it is the sense of this association that these bills are not in the public interest and there is no apparent need for them at this time; and

WHEREAS adequate provision already exists for extension of terms of patents in particular cases; and

WHEREAS the uncertainty and hardships which would bear upon the general public by virtue of the provisions of these bills far outweigh any possible advantages to individual patentees:

The New Jersey Patent Law Association, upon motion duly made and seconded, has passed a resolution to the effect that the association is opposed to the bills identified above and to the general principle insofar as that principle may be reasserted in successive bills.

MAURICE W. LEVY, Chairman, Legislation Committee.


Mr. BARNES. I am 53 years old and live in Muncie, Ind. I am here of my own initiative, at my own expense, and entirely in my own behalf.

By profession I am a mechanical engineer with an appropriate background of two university degrees, and 31 years of practical experience.

For the past 19 years I have been on no one's payroll. I make my living from inventions, and I am neither a starving gadgeteer nor a so-called "kept" inventor of a great corporation. Through a combination of good choice of technical principles, good timing, good bargaining, and good luck, I have had a reasonable measure of commercial success.

My activities have been in the automotive field, and of some 22 patents naming me as the inventor, only 8 have yielded me any financial returns worth mentioning. These have related to transmission devices for automobiles, namely, the overdrive and one type of automatic transmission.

The overdrive began production in its first form in 1934, and in a second and improved form, in 1940, which latter form is still in production. Quantitatively, this production has been as follows:

Mr. BARNES. No, sir. General Motors Corp. uses automatic transmissions which their salesmen may offer as overdrives.

Mr. WILLIS. What is on the Oldsmobile?

Mr. BARNES. You have a direct drive in fourth gear.

Mr. BRYSON. What do I have on my Lincoln?

Mr. BARNES. It depends upon when you bought it.

Mr. BRYSON. Christmas. It gives me trouble in the South.

Mr. BARNES. You will be able to live that down.

Mr. BRYSON. I told them that Lincoln was a southerner.

Mr. BARNES. I can sympathize with that view. I am from Arkansas.

Mr. WILLIS. Have you succeeded in outwitting them?

Mr. BARNES. I don't know.

Mr. WILLIS. You said out of 21 patents 8 were successful?

Mr. BARNES. They have earned me a living.

Mr. WILLIS. If you drilled 21 oil wells and got 8 gushers you would be all right.
