This 1951 Supplement to Title 3 of the Code of Federal Regulations
contains the full text of Presidential documents published in the FEDERAL
REGISTER during 1951. It constitutes a continuation of the series of annual
reprints which started under Title 3 in the 1938 Supplement to the Code
of Federal Regulations. This series began with Proclamation No. 2287 of
June 6, 1938, and Executive Order No. 7906 of the same date. The series
was cumulated as of June 1, 1943, in Book 1 of the 1943 Cumulative Supple-
ment to the Code of Federal Regulations. The entire series, as of December
31, 1951, is therefore encompassed in the following volumes:
1. Title 3, Book 1, 1943 Cumulative Supplement.
2. Title 3, Book 1 of each annual supplement (1943 through 1947).
3. The 1948, 1949, and 1950 Supplements to Title 3.
4. This 1951 Supplement to Title 3.
Title 3, as presented in the first edition of the Code of Federal Regulations
(June 1, 1938), and in the Code of Federal Regulations, 1949 Edition,
consists of reference tables of Presidential documents cited or otherwise
included in the Code of Federal Regulations, but does not contain the
text thereof. The full text of Presidential documents is published only in
the daily issues of the Federal Register and in Title 3 of the supplements
This 1951 Supplement to Title 3 is published pursuant to Part 2 of the
regulations of the Administrative Committee, approved by the President
October 11, 1948 (13 F. R. 5935; 1 CFR Part 2), under the authority
contained in section 11 (d) of the Federal Register Act as amended (50
Stat. 305; 44 U.S. C. 311 (d)). The contents of the Federal Register and
of this supplement are by law prima facie evidence of the text of the
original documents and are required to be judicially noticed (49 Stat.
502, 50 Stat. 304; 44 U.S. C. 307, 311 (c)).
This supplement may be cited "3 CFR, 1951 Supp.” Thus the approved
abbreviated citation of Proclamation No. 2916 appearing herein would
be "3 CFR, 1951 Supp., p. 19".
