Mr. Gary. Now, as to your request for operating expenses, which includes all of the previous items you request $137,850,000 for 1951. What would be the comparable figure of appropriations for that?

Mr. JOHNSON. The comparable figure for 1950 is $122,550,000.
Mr. Gary. Which represents an increase of how much?
(Commander ARRINGTON. $15,300,000, sir.

Mr. Gary. We will insert the text on page 98 beginning “1. Search, rescue, and law enforcement,” and all of pages 99 and 100, to show the program and performance, together with pages 261, 266, and 270 of the justifications.

(The material referred to follows:) 1. Search, rescue, and lave enforcement.- In the performance of this activity, the ('oast Guard maintains vessels on patrol, rescue vessels, life-saring stations, and aircraft at strategie points along the coasts and inland waterways. During Hoods and hurricanes, boats and personnel are sent to inland areas to assist in resine and relief operations. An international ice-patrol and ice-observation service is maintained in the North Atlantic Ocean, and ice breaking is performed to keep navigation open on inland lakes, rivers, and canals, and in harbors on the Atlantic cont. Emergency medical aid is furnished to persons in distress at sea.

The Coast Guard enforces laws relating to navigation and merchant shipping and acts as an auxiliary enforcement agency in respect to laws relating to customs and revenue, immigration, quarantine, the protection of fish and game. and for other matters which are normally within the jurisdiction of other Federal agencies but which require marine personnel and facilities for effective enforcement. With respect to merchant vessels, the Coast Guard administers laws and issues regulations relating to inspection, safety equipment, licensing, and certification of officers and crews, and reviews plans for construction or alteration of merchant vessels. It investigates marine casualities and accidents and holds hearings on disciplinary cases. The Coast Guard sponsors and promotes the Coast Guard Auxiliary, which is a 'voluntary organization of yacht and motorboat owners capable of assisting in time of distress. The Coast Guard also provides leadership by supplying instructions in the principles and practices of safe navigation.

The program for 1951 will continue substantially at the same level of operations. However, it is planned to increase the number of aircraft in operation from 73 to 95. Provision is also made to improve the state of repair and maintenance of air stations, lifeboat stations, and certain supporting shore units.

There is given below a table of selected work units for the purpose of measuring the predominant types of work-volume included under this activity.

2. Operation of aids to navigation --This activity covers the maintenance of buoys, lighthouses, lightships, fog signal stations, radio beacons, and loran stations. These aids are maintained in the navigable waters of the United States, its Territories and possessions, and military bases overseas. The 1951 program is essentially the same as that for 1950. The increase is required for maintenance of the additional aids which were installed in 1950 and to improve the state of repair and maintenance of other aids and supporting units.

3. Operation of ocean stations for meteorological and other serrices.-Weather ships are maintained and operated at various specified locations in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans in accordance with the terms of international agreements These ships serve as platforms for Weather Bureau observations and provide communication facilities for transmitting weather reports. In addition, they serve as mobile aids to navigation by providing check points for aircraft flying transoceanic routes and offer potential rescue facilities for both aircraft and surface vessels while crossing the oceans.

1 A reduction of $87,564 for this activity is the result of a redistribution of indirect expense attributable to increase in direct cost of other activities. Indirect expense, or overhead, is distributed to activities in direct ratio to the amount of direct expense.

NOTE.-The estimates in this table are exclusive of costs of pay increases under Public Laws 308, 351, and 429, which are shown in a separate schedule.

Mr. Gary. We will also, at this point, insert the table appearing on page 254 of the justifications.
