ANALYSIS OF ESTIMATE

[merged small][ocr errors]

Of the estimate of $202,700, $184,915 is for salaries, and $12,000 di the balance is for printing two volumes of the decisions of the court

, as required by law, and the printing of customs and patent calendars mandates, letterheads, forms, and so forth. This leaves a balance in the estimate of $5,785 which is for the contingent expenses of the court and is to pay for communication services, transportation of things, travel, supplies and materials.

Are there any questions, gentlemen?
If not, we thank you very much, Judge Garrett and Judge Johnson.

Judge GARRETT. Perhaps some special mention should be made of that $8,200.

Mr. PRESTON. We understand what it is requested for. Thank you very much, gentlemen.

USE OF COURTROOM BY UNITED STATES COURT OF MILITARY APPEALS

room.

Judge GARRETT. I might refer to the fact that the United States Court of Military Appeals has been given permission to use our courtI believe that court has not

been made a part of the Federal judiciary as yet. Consequently I do not suppose the committee has any jurisdiction over any appropriation for its support.

Mr. Rooney. No; we do not. For the moment, we would not be particularly interested in it unless it required expenditure of funds through this budget

and this committee. Judge GARRETT. Thank you very much.

Mr. ROONEY. We are pleased to have with us the Honorable Webster J. Oliver, Chief Judge of the Customs Court, a fellow Brooklynite and an old friend, and Mr. William F. X. Band, clerk of the court.

Judge Oliver, do you wish to address us with regard to the requested appropriation in the amount of $467,000 estimated for 1953?

COMPARATIVE STATEMENT OF CASE LOADS

Judge OLIVER. Last year, Mr. Chairman, you may recall you requested us, at the conclusion of the hearing, to forward a breakdown of business for several years; and anticipating that request this year, we have prepared for the fiscal years 1949, 50, 51 and the first 6 months of fiscal 1952, a very comprehensive breakdown setting forth in detail the various types of litigation and the cases added and disposed of and the number of cases at the present time on the Calendar.

Mr. ROONEY. We shall insert that breakdown in the record at this point.
