000,000. That looks a little peculiar to me. Maybe there is an explanation.

General Cates. I am afraid I cannot explain that, as I do not figure that myself. May I have General Hill explain that?

Mr. Mahon. Yes.

General HILL. That is correct, Mr. Taber. The price is figured on the overseas price in coming up to the $39,000,000. We had very few marines overseas.

Mr. TABER. You mean it is the overseas price for food?
General Hill. Yes, sir; that is correct.
Mr. TABER. Rather than the domestic?
General HILL. Correct, sir.

Mr. TABER. Perhaps there is an increase on that account for the ones already in. Would that be so?

General Hill. The ones already in had very few figured on the overseas rates because we had very few marines overseas.

Mr. TABER. I see.
General Hill. Practically all of these are scheduled to go overseas.
General Cares. Will it be necessary to increase that?
General HILL. Yes, sir; it will.
Mr. TABER. I guess that is all so far as I am concerned.

Mr. ENGEL. General, you mean that you figure the cost of rations at the overseas cost?

General HILL. Yes, sir.
Mr. ENGEL. You buy the rations over here, do you not?
General Hill. Right, sir.
Mr. ENGEL. And ship them over there?
General HILL. Yes, sir.
Mr. ENGEL. That adds to the freight cost and what not?
General HILL. It does, sir, because it is figured on the Army system.

Mr. ENGEL. And you also have to figure in the cost of the pipeline from here over there?

General HILL. Yes, sir.

Mr. ENGEL. That pipeline has been extended, and you have to buy it enough in advance to get the pipeline going?

General HILL. Yes, sir; that is correct.
Mr. ENGEL. That is all.
Mr. Mahon. All right. What is the next item?

MARINE CORPS TROOPS AND FACILITIES Admiral Hopwood. The next appropriation is, "Marine Corps troops and facilities," with General Cates.

Mr. Mahon. Please give us your statement.

MAINTENANCE AND OPERATION OF MARINE CORPS FACILITIES

The first item is "Maintenance and operation of Marine Corps facilities," a plus $61,058,000.

Mr. TABER. Why would that go up so much more in proportion, as compared to the personnel?

General Hill. Getting the Marine Corps supply system back in operation to support the overseas activities; the loading-out requirements of subsistence, of gasoline and similar items; opening up of

certain areas in posts and stations that have been closed down; deferred maintenance, and similar items.

Mr. TABER. All right.

GENERAL EXPENSES, MARINE CORPS PERSONNEL Mr. MAHON. The item of "General expenses, Marine Corps personnel” calls for an increase. How is that defended?

General Hill. $3,280,000 for organizational clothing; $6,193,000 for general supply items for the Fleet Marine Force, such as tents, chests, machines, boats, engines, accessories, and so forth; an increase of $6,193,000. That includes rehabilitation of trailers, laundry, and parachute equipment.

There is an increase of $16,305,000 for Marine Corps electronie equipment.

There is an increase of $2,001,972 for expense of recruits, such as transportation, board and lodging, medical examiners' fees, gasoline and oil for the recruiting service, telegraph service, telephone service, and so forth.

There is an increase of $9,000 for camp and garrison equipment and supplies.

There is an increase of $3,550,000 for freight and express.

And there is an increase of $933,028 for packing and crating and material therefor.

ORDNANCE AND AMMUNITION

Mr. Mahon. In your Marine Corps ordnance and ammunition item you have a great increase, of course.

General Hill. Yes, sir.

Mr. Mahon. That is set forth in your justifications, which are before the committee.

General Hill. Yes, sir.

SUPPLEMENTAL FUNDS FOR KOREAN WAR

Mr. Mahon. Much of this is directly related to the Korean situation?

General HILL. Practically all of it, sir, is directly related, except some of the afore-mentioned items. It is practically all related to the Korean adventure.

Mr. NORRELL. Mr. Chairman, I like the way he is talking there.

SUMMARY JUSTIFICATION DATA

Mr. Mahon. All right. Are there any further questions in regard to the requirements for the Marine Corps? Of course, we have the breakdown here before us, which we will place in the record.
