GILLESPIE, OF THE COMMITTEE ON APPROPRIATIONS, HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, IN CHARGE OF THE DEPARTMENTS OF STATE, JUSTICE, COMMERCE, AND THE JUDICIARY APPROPRIATION BILL, 1947, ON THE DAYS FOLLOWING:

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23, 1946.

SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES

STATEMENTS OF JUSTICE HAROLD H. BURTON, ASSOCIATE

JUSTICE; THOMAS E. WAGGAMAN, MARSHAL; AND MRS. MARY
RACIOPPI, SECRETARY TO THE MARSHAL, SUPREME COURT
OF THE UNITED STATES

Mr. RABAUT. This morning we start consideration of the estimates for the Supreme Court of the United States under the judiciary appropriation bill, and the committee is honored with the presence of Mr. Justice Burton and our old friend, Mr. Waggaman, and Mrs. Racioppi.

APPROPRIATIONS, 1946, AND ESTIMATES, 1947 I note here that the amount for 1946 was $499,100, and the estimate for 1947 is $591,200. There is quite an increase here, almost $100,000; is that right?

Mr. Justice BURTON. I think you will find that is merely due to the automatic effect of Public Law 106, which has been passed since the last appropriation.

Mr. RABAUT. There is no extra help requested?

Mr. Justice Burton. No; it is not an enlargement of our organization.

Mr. RABAUT. Do you have a statement you would like to make to the committee?

GENERAL STATEMENT

Mr. Justice Burton. I might make an extremely brief statement, Mr. Chairman. I believe last year Mr. Justice Roberts appeared here with Mr. Waggaman and Mr. Cropley. Of course, Mr. Justice Roberts is no longer with the Court, and the Chief Justice asked Mr. Justice Black and myself to represent the Court here and answer such questions as you might have in mind. Mr. Justice Black had planned to come, but he is suffering from an attack of laryngitis and yesterday was hardly able to talk. He did get down to the Court
