Mr. ROONEY. The final item for the Supreme Court of the United States is entitled "Care of the buildings and grounds” and is at page 7 of the committee print and page 25 of the justifications. The testimony with regard to this will be given by Mr. Lynn and his staff.
Justice BURTON. Yes. It presents only a slight change based on change in pay.
Mr. ROONEY. If there is anything you wish to call to our attention please do so. I shall now ask if there are any questions?
Hearing none, we are very pleased to have had you with us this morning.
Justice BLACK. Thank you.
Mr. Rooney. At this point we shall insert in the record, page 25 of the justifications which contains a request in the amount of $.174,100-an increase to the extent of $13,400 over current appropriation of $160,700.
(The page referred to is as follows:)

$160, 700 Proposed supplemental due to pay increases

Mr. ROONEY. What is the reason, Mr. Lynn, for the requested increase in the amount of $13,400?
Mr. Lynn. Mr. Chairman, I have a short statement I would like to present to the committee. Mr. Henlock, my administrative officer, is available for details.
The actual increase for 1953 over 1952 requirements is only $1,60 We, of course, have not yet received the supplemental appropriation of $11,800 required for 1952 to cover the cost of Public Law 201 par increases for the present year, but when that amount is granted and added to the 1952 total the actual increase for 1953 over 1952 will be only $1,600.
I would also like to call your attention to an error in the committee print, on page 7. Actually it is an error in the printed budget. You will note the last line which reads: of which not to exceed [$147,50,0] $157,400 shall be available for personal services, The newly inserted amount "$157,400” should read $160,900, for the reason that under "07 Other contractual services” we employ temporary day labor, such as painters, which, if not added to that figure, would restrict us to our regular force of 37 employees retained on a year-round basis. Mr. ROONEY. Thank you.
