HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, SUBCOMMITTEE ON

TERRITORIAL AND INSULAR AFFAIRS OF THE
COMMITTEE ON INTERIOR AND INSULAR AFFAIRS,

Fairbanks, Alaska. The subcommittee met, pursuant to call, at 2:45 p. m., in Carpenters' Hall, Hon. Leo W. O'Brien (chairman) presiding.

Mr. O'BRIEN. The hearing will please come to order.

Let the record show that the Subcommittee on Territorial and Insular Affairs of the House Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs is conducting the first of a series of hearings in Fairbanks.

I might state also for the record that we have a rather ambitious schedule during our visit to Alaska. I think we have some 6924 hours of hearings.

The committee comes here in sympathy with your problems and in the hope of increasing our own knowledge of your problems.

I think at this stage I will ask Mr. Abbott, our committee counsel, to outline the agenda for today and, if he will, some of the subjects we hope to cover here and elsewhere in Alaska.

Mr. ABBOTT. Mr. Chairman, in accordance with your instructions, Mr. Sidney McFarland, the engineering consultant, and myself have spent a few days in advance of the subcommittee in establishing a schedule which it is hoped within the time permitted, would develop a picture of Alaska's situation today.

It is proposed during the balance of this afternoon's session to hear first from the Delegate from Alaska, Mr. Bartlett, who will outline the situation in Alaska from his perspective; we had hoped he would be followed by Governor Heintzleman, who was unable to be here this afternoon but who will be here for the opening of tomorrow morning's session; and then from there, the Office of Territories in the person of Mr. Kirkley Coulter who is the Director of the Office of Territories for the Alaska Division, followed in order by the several Federal agencies who have representatives present today.

The primary purpose of the presentation by the representatives of the several Federal agencies—the Bureau of Land Management, the Geological Survey, the Bureau of Mines, the Bureau of Reclamation, Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Alaska Native Service will be to provide an orientation for the members as to the specific functions of those Federal agencies in the Territory of Alaska.

The presentation by the spokesman for the Office of Territories, Mr. Coulter, will briefly outline that office's function in the Territory so that the picture might be gotten as to the respective division of authority and responsibility.
