Mr. WHEELER. We have the information going back to 1941, broken down by agencies, showing employment divided between full-time and other than full-time for each of the years 1941 through 1955 as of December 31.

Mr. MARSHALL. I notice that the report made by the so-called Byrd committee reports you have 75,950 as of February.

Secretary BENSON. That would include part-time employees. Our permanent and full-time employees as of December 1955 were 59,249, according to the Director of Personnel.

Mr. WHEELER. Mr. Marshall, on these statistics, I should point out that the figures which we have referred to are official figures reported each month to the Civil Service Commission on employment as of that date; as of a given date.

We also furnish in connection with the budget, so that it will tie into dollars, figures on average employment in a given year. I am sure you realize that average employment in a given year would be a little different from a count of noses as of any one given date.

Mr. MARSHALL. What figure does the Byrd committee use?

Mr. WHEELER. The Byrd committee uses the first figures I referred to, which I will insert in the record.

Mr. MARSHALL. You do show a considerable increase in personnel. (The employment data referred to is as follows:)

not they performed service during the reporting month. Due to a correction in reporting

intermittent employees as required by the Civil Service Commission, FHA State and

month,

AVERAGE SALARIES

Mr. MARSHALL. What about a salary increase? How much has that been?

Secretary BENSON. I could not answer that offhand. The salary rates are provided by acts of Congress.

Mr. MARSHALL. Could you supply figures to show how much the salaries have increased in the Department?

Secretary BENSON. Yes, sir; surely.
(The information requested'is as follows :)

INTEREST RATES Mr. MARSHALL. I was interested in the comment you made in your statement concerning interest rates. How much have the interest rates increased in the various categories in the Department ? Could you put a figure in the record ?

Secretary Benson. It varies. Are you referring to the loans through the Farmers Home Administration, or the interest rates we pay in connection with the Commodity Credit Corporation operations?

Mr. MARSHALL. I am interested in both. I am interested in the increased interest rate that becomes involved in all the categories of the Department.

Secretary Benson. Interest rates generally over the country have increased, as you know. Some of our rates are fully competitive. That is true on Commodity Credit Corporation, I am sure. Some of our other interest rates have been changed, I believe.

Mr. Scott. The interest rates, Mr. Marshall, on our emergency loans in the Farmers Home Administration are 3 percent. Production and subsistence, and special livestock loans are fixed at 5 percent. Most of the rest of them are 412 percent, as I recall. I think most all of those are fixed by statute.

Secretary Benson. Fixed by statute.
Mr. MARSHALL. You will supply the other figures for the record?
Secretary BENSON. Yes; if you would like to have them.
