the pending projects involving something over $84,000,000. He points out that something over $27,000,000 involved in these projects has been äuthorized by specific legislation; in other words, individually authorized. The remaining portion of the money is for projects which have not been specifically considered, as I understand it, by the House Committee on Armed Services. However, all the projects in the bill are authorized by law under the general statutes and Public Law 703, approved July 2, 1940, is cited as being the general basis upon which the projects have been presented, which have not been individually considered by the House Committee on Armed Services. Mr. Vinson indicates that he will confirm his interest in an approval of the proposed projects by letter.

CoNTINGENCIES

Mr. MAHON. Mr. McNeil, the committee has requested your presence to give us some explanation of the revised estimate contained in House Document No. 677 under the heading of “Contingencies,” Office of the Secretary of Defense. The language contained in House Document No. 677 will be inserted at this point: For emergencies and extraordinary expenses arising in the Department of Defense, to be expended on the approval or authority of the Secretary of Defense and such expenses may be accounted for solely on his certificate that the expenditures were necessary for confidential military purposes; $85,000,000. I suppose that most of this will be off the record. Mr. McNEIL. Yes, sir. The $85,000,000 under this appropriation is to provide for unforeseen contingencies which will arise from time to time not provided for under any other appropriation. (Discussion off the record.)
