GOVERNMENT OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA,

EXECUTIVE OFFICE,

Washington, May 8, 1968. Mr. JAMES T. CLARK, Clerk, House District Committee, Longworth House Office Building, Washington, D.O.

DEAR MR. CLARK: Following up on my letter of April 29, 1968 concerning the costs of the recent disturbances, I now have some figures for the cost of federalizing the National Guard and bringing in Army troops. They are as follows: Gross Cost ---

$5, 394, 072 Less : Normal Costs.

(2, 966, 255) Offset Costs.--

(246, 440)

Net Cost....

2, 181, 377 The normal costs are those which would have been expended for paying Army troops and their other costs wherever they would have been located. The offset costs are for items which were issued and subsequently returned after the disturbances. It is of interest that one of the largest costs was that of transportation, which was $1,050,960.

These costs included the cost of federalizing the National Guard, although the costs thereof other than salaries has not been computed. The pay for the National Guardsmen was $232,983. I trust this information will be of assistance to you and the Committee. Sincerely yours,

THOMAS W. FLETCHER.
