see, since last October. This chart runs back to the beginning of the fiscal year 1943.

These jagged lines [indicating on chart) represent the inflow and outflow of cases, this being the number of cases on hand. It does vary considerably from week to week, although you can see that the inflow runs generally about 150 cases a week.

Mr. SNYDER. What makes that difference in the end?

Mr. KHEEL. We put on a drive with our regional boards, and we disposed of as many disputes as we could through this intensive drive, and the results are shown here [indicating). The continuous line represents the disposition of cases and it ran up to about 250, the most we ever disposed of in any one period of time. That reflects itself in the downward turn of this curve.

Mr. WOODRUM. How about keeping that drive going, and keeping them going at that same rate?

Mr. KHEEL. The drive ran for a period of 3 months which formally ended on April 1. We are planning for another drive to begin about May 1. We specified the figures that we expected each regional board to meet, and followed up on the progress or insufficient progress made by each region. This chart [indicating) represents our voluntary cases.

The continuous line at the top represents the number of cases we have on hand. We are at about the lowest we have been. As of April 1, 1945, we had about 12,000 such cases.

Mr. Cannon. That is, as compared with 16,000 last year?
Mr. KHEEL. Yes, sir.
Mr. TABER. How many have you disposed of in that time?
Mr. KHEEL. It is about 197,000.
Mr. TABER. That means you are disposing of about 4,000 a week?
Mr. KHEEL. About 4,000 a week; yes, sir.

Mr. TABER. I thought you said you were only disposing of about 250 with the drive.

Mr. Kheel. I was referring to disputes cases. These are the voluntary eases. We dispose of about 150 to 200 dispute cases each week and about 4,000 voluntary cases each week, on the average.

Mr. Cannon. In view of the fact that you have this heavy backlog on hand which you are decreasing slightly, it would seem that this drive ought to be continued indefinitely. There is no reason why you should let up in that drive, since you are getting results. Does it involve any additional expense or additional personnel?

Dr. TAYLOR. No; except for considerable overtime on part of our staff. But as a matter of fact, there will be groups of cases combed out, once they can be handled quickly, and then you catch up on the more difficult ones after you finish. So it would go in spurts.

Mr. CANNON. Then, as a matter of fact, it does not decrease: it merely takes care of the cases which can be quickly disposed of?

Dr. TAYLOR. Yes; to some extent.
Mr. Cannon. Always you have a backlog of difficult cases?
Dr. TAYLOR. Yes.

Mr. CANNON. You made a very satisfactory record there. Suppose you put that chart in tabulated form and give it to us by months, beginning with January, 1944, showing the number you have received, the number disposed of, and the number carried over. Dr. TAYLOR. Yes; we would be very glad to do that. (The statement requested is as follows:)
