MILITARY ESTABLISHMENT APPROPRIATION BILL

FOR 1943

HEARINGS CONDUCTED BY THE SUBCOMMITTEE, MESSRS. J. BUELL SNYDER (CHAIRMAN), DAVID TERRY, JOE STARNES, ROSS A. COLLINS, JOHN H. KERR, GEORGE H. MAHON, D. LANE POWERS, ALBERT J. ENGEL, AND FRANCIS CASE, OF THE SUBCOMMITTEE ON APPROPRIATIONS, HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, IN CHARGE OF THE WAR DEPARTMENT APPROPRIATION BILL FOR THE YEAR 1943, ON THE DAYS FOLLOWING, NAMELY:

THURSDAY, June 11, 1942. Mr. SNYDER. The committee has met this morning to consider the revised Budget estimates for the War Department for the fiscal year 1943. We have been delayed in making provision for 1943 requirements because the estimates contained in the regular Budget, determined upon prior to our entry into the war, turned out to be wholly inadequate and unsuited to an actual state of war.

The original Budget estimates, contained in the Budget for 1943, aggregated $6,388,091,747. The revised estimates, contained in House Document No. 769, aggregate $39,417,827,337. The revised estimates were received by the House on Monday of this week. Obviously, therefore, all of us have had to do much hustling to be in readiness to begin hearings 3 days later.

General Mc Narney, the Deputy Chief of Staff, whom you all know, is here this morning, representing General Marshall, to make the Army's opening presentation.

OFFICERS AND MEN RECEIVING SPECIAL RECOGNITION FOR SIGNAL AND

VALOROUS CONDUCT

Before you begin, General, permit me to express the pride each of us has in our Army and in the magnificent showing it has made thus far. It seems to me it would be most fitting and appropriate to preface our hearings with a list of the names of those officers and men who, thus far, have received special recognition, by decoration or otherwise, for their signal and valorous conduct. Will you please bave inserted at this point the names, residences, service conDection, and ranks of such Officers and men, the special recognition they have been accorded, and the citation in each case? General McNARNEY. Yes, sir. (The statement referred to is as follows:)
