y as to whether the judge's chambers shall be where a marshal is dy in there or a member of internal Revenue, it is necessary to someone there to decide it. I do not think that can be cut very h. r. CHANDLER. I should like to make this statement about travel. office has to accomplish in general whatever it can accomplish in way of promoting efficient methods in the various offices of the ets through persuasion. We have very little actual power. We e found that when representatives of the office can go to courts re there are problems and talk

with the judge or the other officers, for ance the clerk or the chief probation officer, that is an effective way promoting the objective in the absence of power on our part to e a direction to court officers as the Attorney General can give ections to United States attorneys.

have been chided by judges in a good many parts of the country ut they do not have enough chance to see me and to present their eds. I say I am doing the best I can for them in Washington and Chink I can help them more by staying pretty closely at my desk. at there are a certain number of trips and personal contacts with e officers of the courts, both judges and others, that are really sential to the attainment of the objectives of the office and helping e courts as we ought, I have not thought that the amount of travel as excessive. I have thought that it was pretty small; if anything -o little rather than too much. Mr. ROONEY. Are there any questions with regard to this? EPAIRS AND IMPROVEMENTS: DISTRICT COURT OF THE UNITED

Mr. Rooney. The next item, gentlemen, appears on page 41 of the committee print and at page 142 of the justifications. It is for repairs and improvements, District Court of the United States for the District of Columbia. With regard to this Mr. Lynn says he is asking the same amount for this coming year, $7,100, for repairs and improvements to the courthouse.

The amount is made up of general annual repairs $5,900 and for air conditioning $1,200. The former amount is the same amount as for 1952 and provides for the annual repair and upkeep of the four elevators, heating and plumbing systems, roof and skylights, and for electrical, carpentry, millwork, plastering, ironwork, and miscellaneous annual repairs.

The annual costs have been prorated between the Federal and District Governments in varying proportions, but in view of the fact that the Architect of the Capitol has been charged for many years with the care of this building and its equipment, he feels it is incumbent upon him to submit a budget estimate for fiscal 1953 pending decision as to the future occupancy of the building.

The situation with regard to this item is the same as the matter of care of the Court of Claims Building—a question of who will take over after the court moves into the new courthouse.

It is requested that the appropriation for referees' salaries for 1953 be made available solely out of the referee;' salary fund, which is in the nature of a trust fund composed entirely of filing fee and special charges paid in by the parties to bankruptcy proceedlings for the services of the referees. An amount of
