BUREAU OF THE BUDGET, Washington, D. C., April 22, 1944.

SIR: I have the honor to submit herewith for your consideration an estimate of appropriation for the National Capital Park and Planning Commission, for the fiscal year 1945, in the amount of $740,000, as follows:

NATIONAL CAPITAL PARK AND PLANNING COMMISSION

For all expenses necessary for the National Capital Park and Planning Commission in connection with the acquisition of land for the park, parkway, and playground system of the National Capital, as authorized by section 4 of the Act of May 29, 1930 (46 Stat. 485), including personal services; technical services at rates of pay not to exceed those usual for similar services elsewhere and without regard to the Classification Act of 1923, as amended; purchase of options and other costs incident to the acquisition of land; and operation and maintenance of passenger-carrying vehicles, $740,000, to be immediately available and to remain available until expended...

$740, 000

The act of May 29, 1930, authorizes the National Capital Park and Planning Commission, among other things, to acquire land for the park, parkway, and playground system of the National Capital, with the total authorized appropriations limited to $16,000,000. The total amount appropriated up to June 30, 1943, was $9,178,700, leaving a balance of $6,821,300 for future appropriations. The District of Columbia is required by law to reimburse the Federal Government in full (not including interest) for land purchased within the District of Columbia, and the District of Columbia 1945 budget provides for the repayment in full of such Federal appropriated funds as still remain unpaid, amounting to $1,733,524.

În recent months there has developed among the citizens and certain Federal and local agencies in the District of Columbia a conviction that additional recreational facilities must be established to reduce juvenile delinquency. As one of the essential steps in this desired direction, the National Capital Park and Planning Commission, with the active support of the District of Columbia Recreation Board, and the Board of Commissioners of the District of Columbia. recommends that funds be appropriated to acquire three playground sites in the midcity area of the National Capital.

The foregoing estimate of appropriation is required to meet s contingency which has arisen since the transmission of the 1945 Budge: and its approval is recommended.
