(8. Rept. No. 699, 78th Cong., 2d sess.)

The purpose of the proposed legislation is to appropriate the sum of $4,435 to Robert C. Harris, of Fort Hancock, N. J., in full settlement of all claims against the United States for loss of wages, medical and hospital expenses, and personal injuries sustained by him on March 17, 1943, when the automobile which he was driving was struck by a United States Army truck.

STATEMENT OF FACTS

The report of the War Department states that "on March 17, 1943, at about 9:30 a. m., an Army 34-ton carry-all, operated by an enlisted man on official business, was proceeding east on Rumson Road about 2 miles from Rumson, N. J., at a speed variously estimated at from 35 to 50 miles per hour. The highway had a 12-foot macadam pavement, which was wet and slippery because of recent rain, but visibility was good. As the Army driver approached a sharp curve in the road he reduced his speed to approximately 30 miles per hour and swung wide on the curve. While rounding the curve his right wheels left the pavement and struck the soft shoulder., The Army driver brought his vehicle back on the pavement, but it then began to skid from one side of the road to the other, and he finally lost control of the machine. At the same time a 1942 Willys pick-up truck, owned by the International Committee of the Young Men's Christian Association, 347 Madison Avenue, New York, N. Y., and operated by Robert C. Harris, was proceeding west on Rumson Road, traveling on its proper side of the highway at a speed of from 25 to 30 miles per hour. Mr. Harris
