Senator Long will now question, and I wonder, Senator Malone, if you would come up here because when Senator Long is completed, then I would like for you to handle the meeting until it is recessed until 10 o'clock in the morning.

Senator Malone. Senator Long, you may proceed.

Senator Long. Mr. Secretary, one of the documents that I find helpful in studying this matter that is put out by your Department is a statistical report.

I think I saw a copy which one of your assistants has there. It shows the body of imports as against exports for 1953, 1956, 1957, and I would like to ask that that be made a part of the record at this point.

I think it would help us to find the information relating to these industries.

(The Secretary of Commerce subsequently forwarded to the committee for insertion in the record the following statistical report referred to by Senator Long:)
