Bureau of the Budget note.--Indonesia is not on the announced list of excess currency countries for either 1967 or 1968.

Section 104(n) of the Agricultural Trade Development and Assistance Act of 1954 (established by Public Law 85-931, approved Sept. 6, 1958), authorizes the Librarian of Congress to use foreign currencies accruing, under this act to provide information of technical, scientific, cultural, or educational significance to the United States through the collection of foreign library materials and the distribution of copies thereof to libraries and research centers in the United States. The program is being continued on a full year's basis in six countries in 1967: India, Indonesia, Israel, Nepal, Pakistan, and the United Arab Republic; in addition, if circumstances permit, programs will be initiated in Ceylon, Poland, and Yugoslavia. The initiation of similar programs in the Congo and Tunisia is proposed for 1968. Of the total amount requested, $2,584 thousand will be used to purchase foreign currencies, while $275 thousand will provide U.S. dollar support.

1. Acquisition of books and other library materials. Based upon the information received during the exploratory stage concerning materials available in the two additional countries and the requirements of other Federal agencies and certain research libraries in the United States, publications and other library materials will be purchased in multiple copies from 11 countries and distributed to selected libraries and research centers in the United States, including the Library of Congress.
