Washington, D.C. The subcommittee met at 10 a. m., pursuant to call, in room 412, Senat Office Building, Senator John L. McClellan, presiding.

Present: Senators McClellan (presiding), Holland, Stennis, Chapman, Kerr, and Malone.

Also present: Lieut. Col. Herbert C. Gee, Deputy Chief of Civil Works for Flood Control, and J. R. Brennan, Office of Chief of Engineers; and Henry M. Muller, assistant to resident member, Board of Engineers for Rivers and Harbors, Corps of Engineers.

Senator McCLELLAN. The committee will come to order.

We are continuing hearings regarding flood control and rivers and harbors projects, in anticipation of including projects coming over to this committee in the bill H. R. 5472 as passed by the House. We have set these hearings for today and tomorrow to try to round out any further testimony and consider any new projects that might be offered.

We have with us Congressman Peterson, of Florida, who is interested in some projects in his State.

Before we proceed with Congressman Peterson, however, we have with us Senator Byrd, of Virginia, who will make a brief statement upon a project in his State. You may proceed, Senator Byrd.


SENATOR FROM THE STATE OF VIRGINIA Senator BYRD. Mr. Chairman, I appreciate the opportunity to come first with my statement. It will be very brief.

Mr. Chairman, I introduce Senator Marvin Minter, who is a State senator from Virginia and will appear here in behalf of two projects in Mathews County, Va.

DAVIS CREEK AND WINTER HARBOR, VA. These projects have been approved by the Board of Engineers and by everybody concerned, and they have the united support of the communities. They are of very vital interest to the tidewater region of Virginia. I personally know about them, and Senator Robertson and I are deeply interested in them.

Senator MCCLELLAN. They are very small projects, are they not, Senator Byrd?
