MESSAGE TRANSMITTING THE BUDGET.
To

t h e C o n g r e s s o f t h e U n ite d S ta te s :

I transmit herewith the Budget of the United States for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1925. In making this
submission it is felt that the present is a peculiarly appropriate time briefly to review the fiscal experience of the
country since the beginning of the World War.
The beginning of the war marked also the beginning of a period of unprecedented and unexampled public expendi­
ture not only by our own but by well-nigh all the nations of the world. The great weight of the fiscal burden that
our own country has borne since our entrance into the war is suggested by the statement that our part in the great
conflict cost the nation roundly forty billions of dollars. While the war was in progress, by dint of the patriotic willing­
ness of the people to pay heavy taxes, it was possible to meet from current revenues about twenty-five per cent of the
war costs. This in itself was a remarkable accomplishment— I believe without parallel in any of the other warring
countries.
The public debt at the beginning of the war amounted to about a billion dollars. At the close of August, 1919,
it reached its highest point, approximately $26,500,000,000. From that point it has since been reduced until it now
totals about $22,000,000,000.
The American people have given a truly magnificent demonstration of patience and patriotism during the years
in which they have borne this burden. In less than seven years, to put the matter very briefly, we have spent forty
billion dollars and we have paid off from current revenues eighteen billion dollars, or nearly half of the amount. Cer­
tainly the nation, which has thus patiently persisted in meeting the enormous burden of governmental costs, is en­
titled at the earliest possible moment to the largest measure of relief from these burdens that can possibly be accorded.
I am convinced that the time has now come to extend this relief through a substantial reduction of taxation, and the
fiscal program which is crystallized in the Budget estimates which are herewith transmitted to the Congress is based
on this purpose.
We are all familiar with the fact that the larger part of the tax burden arises not from the exactions of the Federal
Government but from the governmental costs of the States and municipalities. President Harding, in his address on
taxation and government costs at Salt Lake City last June, pointed out that for the year 1922 approximately sixty
per cent of all taxes collected throughout the nation were for the States, cities, and other local taxing bodies. It is
therefore highly desirable that an example of determined and insistent economy be set by the Federal Government for
the sake of its influence upon every body which possesses the authority to levy taxes. I am firmly persuaded that if
the National Government will reduce its expenditures and its levies under the program which is presented to you
herewith, it will have a highly salutary effect in inducing greater economies in all other departments of public taxation.
A definite recommendation for tax reduction is made later in this message.
The Budget transmitted herewith is summarized in the following statement:

In the Budget for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1924, transmitted to Congress December 4, 1922, the estimated
receipts for the fiscal year 1923 were $3,429,862,959, and the estimated expenditures $3,703,801,671, thus forecasting
an apparent excess of expenditures over receipts of $273,938,712. President Harding, in referring to this estimated
deficiency, said:
I am hopeful, however, that the condition on which this estimate is predicated will change for the betted
in the ensuing months of the fiscal year and that the close of the year will show a balanced budget/




VI

THE BUDGET, 1925.

This hope was justified. At the close of business June 30, 1923, the actual receipts for the year were $4,007,135480, and the actual expenditures $3,697,478,020, an excess of receipts over expenditures of $309,657,460. This
fortunate transition from an apparent deficit to a large surplus, while greatly aided by an unexpected increase in
receipts, was due in no small measure to the efforts of the individual departments and establishments of the Govern­
ment and to the spirit of cooperation shown by them in carrying out the economy policies of the President.
The estimates made at the time of the presentation of the Budget in December, 1922, indicated that for 1924
the receipts would be $3,361,812,359 and the expenditures $3,180,843,234, making an excess of receipts over expend­
itures of $180,969,125. The revised estimates recently made indicate that the receipts for the current year will be
$3,894,677,712 and the expenditures $3,565,038,088, making an excess of receipts over expenditures of $329,639,624.
For the fiscal year 1925 it is estimated that the total ordinary receipts from all sources, excluding the Postal
Service, will be $3,693,762,078. This is $313,373,402 less than the actual receipts for 1923 and $200,915,634 less
than the estimated receipts for 1924.
The expenditures during the fiscal year 1923 were $3,697,478,020 compared with $3,795,302,499 for 1922, a reduc­
tion of more than $97,000,000. Included in the 1923 expenditures, however, were certain items appearing also
among the receipts for the purposes of clearness in accounting. To get an accurate comparison between the expendi­
tures for the two years, it is necessary to deduct the sum of these items from the gross expenditures of 1923, which
are reduced to $3,532,269,266.32. This shows a reduction of approximately $263,000,000 below the expenditures
for 1922.
It is estimated that the expenditures for 1924 will be $3,565,038,088, which is $132,439,932 less than the expendi­
tures for 1923.
The estimate of expenditures for 1925 is $3,298,080,444, which is $266,957,644 less than the estimated expendi­
tures for 1924. By expenditures for 1925 is meant the amount it is estimated will be withdrawn from the Treasury
during the year ending June 30, 1925. This is to be distinguished from the estimate of appropriations for the same
year. Withdrawals during the fiscal year will be from funds heretofore appropriated as well as from appropriations
recommended in the Budget. Furthermore, a portion of the money to be appropriated for 1925 will not be with­
drawn from the Treasury until after the close of that fiscal year.
The foregoing does not include expenditures for the Postal Service and the Post Office Department payable from
postal revenues. Such expenditures for the fiscal year 1923 were $570,823,232. A deficiency of $32,526,915, payable
from ordinary receipts, is included in the ordinary expenditures hereinbefore mentioned. The estimated expendi­
tures from postal revenues during 1924 are $593,309,673. An estimated deficiency of $24,679,673 is included in the
estimated ordinary expenditures for 1924. The estimated expenditures from postal revenues for 1925 are $613,295,184.
It is estimated that the postal expenditures for that year will exceed postal revenues by $2,085,184.
This brings us to the estimates of appropriations contained in this Budget. The Executive instructions governing
the preparation of these estimates called for a substantial reduction as compared with the appropriations for 1924.
This was essential to a continuation of the policy of strict and drastic economy. That is the administration's undebatable policy. It has been adhered to unswervingly in the past and we shall hew to the line in the future.
The estimates of appropriations appearing in this Budget for 1925, exclusive of the estimate for the Post Office
Department, amount to $3,018,069,946.06, which is $260,365,022.56 less than the appropriations for 1924.
I give below a comparative statement of the estimates of appropriations for 1925 and the appropriations for 1924.

The estimates of appropriations for the Department of Justice show an increase of something more than
$2,000,000 above the estimates contained in the Budget for 1924. Probably to a much greater extent than any other
executive department, the Department of Justice involves activities which are not subject to administrative control
as regards expenditures. Due to this condition the practice for a great many years has been to present estimates
of appropriations for the Department of Justice which were known to be less than the amount which would eventually
be required for the service of the fiscal year to which they pertained and to follow these annual estimates with supple­
mental estimates when the fiscal year was well under wav and the needs could be more accurately determined. This
practice was known to and sanctioned by Congress. The estimates for the fiscal year 1925 are in an amount which
it is believed will cover in full the requirements of the Department of Justice for that fiscal year. This change in
practice operates to increase the Budget something more than $2,000,000 over what the total of the Budget estimates
would be if the old practice had been continued, but it presents a truer picture of the estimated requirements of this
Department which is in accord with the principles of proper budgeting.
The estimate for the Department of Commerce includes $3,500,000 for the decennial Census of Agriculture, re­
quired by act of Congress approved March 3, 1919.
For prohibition enforcement the Congress has appropriated for the current fiscal year ending June 30, 1924,
an amount which provides an executive unit of 700, directorates for the several States, and a field force of 1,522. A
considerably enlarged field force should be provided for prohibition enforcement, and to meet this requirement the
estimates of appropriations for the prohibition unit for the fiscal year 1925 are something more than $1,600,000 in
excess of appropriations for the current fiscal year. In my annual message I am presenting to Congress the need
for a material increase in the personnel and equipment of the United States Coast Guard for the purpose of com­
bating more thoroughly rum-running and unlawful importations. I mention this here for the reason that I will
shortly present to Congress a supplemental estimate of appropriations for the Coast Guard of approximately
$20,000,000, mainly for additional vessels and boats, for the current fiscal year which, if granted, will be followed
by a request for a further appropriation of approximately $6,000,000 for the coming fiscal year.
The estimates of appropriations contained in the Budget include amounts to cover the classification of civilian
positions within the District of Columbia as required by the act of Congress approved March 4, 1923. The amounts
involved in the classification are also reflected in the estimates of expenditures contained in the Budget. The Budget
contains a statement giving a detailed summary and comparison of the Budget estimates of appropriations with
the expenditures for 1924 as regards the personnel of the departments and establishments in the District of Columbia.
The gross public debt, which on June 30, 1922, was $22,963,381,708.31, on June 30, 1923, was $22,349,707,365.36,
a reduction of $613,674,342.95 during 1923. The total of this reduction was made up first, in the amount of
$402,850,491.10, through the cumulative sinking fund and other public debt expenditures payable from certain
specific receipts; and second, in the amount of $210,823,851.85, from the surplus of $309,657,460.30 of ordinary
receipts over expenditures for the year. The balance of this surplus, $98,833,608.45, was added to the net balance in




VIII

THE BUDGET, 1925.

the general fund of the Treasury, which was thus increased from $272,105,512.63 at the commencement of the year,
to $370,939,121.08 at the end of the year.
During the next five years there mature $4,000,000,000 of Treasury notes and about $3,400,000,000 of third
Liberty bonds, a total of $7,400,000,000. The ordinary sinking fund will take care of about $1,600,000,000 in the
five years, leaving between $5,000,000,000 and $6,000,000,000 of Government securities to be refunded.
The debt agreement with the British Government, concluded on June 19, 1923, involves a payment of approxi­
mately $160,000,000, principal and interest, each year, and in accordnace with the terms of the agreement, these
payments may be made in bonds of the United States issued since April 6,1917. Such bonds, when so used in payment,
are canceled and retired, but this is not likely to affect the earlier maturing debt referred to above, because the bonds
tendered in payment by the British Government will probably be those of longer term which are now lower in price.
If future adjustments are made with other foreign Governments, the United States debt may be affected, but for
some years to come the principal reliance on debt reduction must be the sinking fund, and the specific receipts referred
to above.
The fiscal year 1923 was closed with a surplus of more than three hundred million dollars. For 1924 the fore­
cast is that the ordinary receipts will exceed the expenditures chargeable thereto, including our fixed-debt charges,
by $329,000,000. The surplus for the next fiscal year, 1925, under present revenue laws, is estimated at $395,000,000.
Joint executive and legislative action has demonstrated what united effort can do toward reducing expenditures,
and the results certainly justify the view that we can stand a reduction in our ordinary receipts and still achieve a
balanced Budget. This, of course, will be possible only if the present pressure and coordinated effort for economy
in our public expenditures be continued without relaxation and there be no embarkation upon any extraordinary
expenditure program. I have in mind that the taxpayers are the stockholders of the business corporation of the
United States, and that if this business is showing a surplus of receipts, the taxpayers should share therein in some
material way that will be of immediate benefit.
Having in mind that the Budget and Accounting Act, 1921, contemplates that the Chief Executive, under the
fortunate situation in which we now find ourselves, shall make such recommendations as in his opinion the public
interests require, I recommend a revision of tax laws along lines which will effect a reduction of income taxes by
taxing earned income more lightly than income from business or from investments; by reducing the percentages of
the normal tax, and by reducing the surtax rates, with commencement of their application at $10,000 instead of
$6,000. I also recommend repeal of the tax on telegrams, telephones, and leased wires, and of the tax on admissions,
and revision of the miscellaneous taxes which are a source#of inconvenience to taxpayers, and difficult to collect.
On the other hand, amendments which would cause some increase of revenue should also be made to existing income
tax laws relative to deductions of capital losses; deductions from gross income for interest paid and nonbusiness losses
sustained, where income from tax-exempt securities is involved; and the manner of taxing community incomes. These
changes would reduce taxes by more than $300,000,000, which is safely within the probable surplus.
It would not take much, however, to exhaust this margin, and any program of new expenditure on a large scale
would make tax reduction impossible for years to come.
I know of nothing which will give the people of this nation greater assurance that we are unalterably committed
to a campaign of economy in public expenditure than a reduction of our present taxation. It will take from the
realm of debate plans which contemplate extravagant expenditures or expansions of the business of Government be­
yond those necessary to keep pace with a growing nation and fix as the measure of our requirements an amount which
will represent what is actually necessary to carry on efficiently the proper business and functions of Government and
meet our fixed debt charges payable out of current revenue. It would certainly tend to align the whole people in
support of economical administration of Government, and I frankly state that such an alignment is becoming every
day more and more necessary because of the influence which it will have upon the States and the other lesser subdivi­
sions of our body politic.
In stating that a reduction in taxation carries with it an obligation not to embark upon an extraordinary
expenditure program, I am not unmindful of the demand for adjusted compensation for soldiers of the World War,
which would include among its beneficiaries the able-bodied of our veterans as well as the disabled. I question if
there is any sound reason for such a measure. The country is prosperous, and remunerative employment is avail­
able for the able-bodied veterans as well as for other citizens. For the disabled veterans of the war and the dependents
of those who fell the country can not do too much. It has already spent nearly two billions of dollars and is now
spending nearly half a billion dollars yearly in their behalf. That obligation it must and will continue to fulfill in
fullest measure, and it is one of the most important of the duties and privileges of the Chief Executive to minister
to the wants and needs of these wards and creditors of the nation. But the fit and able-bodied veterans are offered
the opportunities open to every other citizen. The Government has no money to distribute to any class of its citizens
that it does not take from the pockets of the people And the payment of a bonus to millions of our former soldiers
could only be accomplished at a cost to the whole community, including the veterans themselves, far outweighing the

benefits intended to be conferred. If I felt that a soldiers’ bonus represented a great need and a proper obligation
which should be fulfilled by this nation, I certainly would not make a recommendation which would be adverse thereto.
We have now reached a point in our financial program where we can lighten the tax burden of the people, which
is ail added reason for taking a firm stand against any and all programs of spending that would tend to absorb the
expected margin between receipts and expenditures.
I also recommend the enactment of legislation which will authorize a reasonable progressive building program
to meet the needs of the executive departments and establishments of the Government in the District of Columbia.
All of the permanent and semipermanent buildings are more or less crowded, with an overflow which of necessity
is housed in temporary buildings erected during the period of the late emergency. A program authorizing an
expenditure of not exceeding $5,000,000 annually for a period of years would operate to gradually relieve the existing
unfortunate situation and in the course of time give adequate accommodations to the departments and establishments.

THE CHART PRESENTATION.
The chart presentation of the estimates of receipts, expenditures, and appropriations for the fiscal year ending
June 30, 1925, given opposite page A3, sets forth graphically the source of income and how the average dollar 01
the estimated expenditures and appropriations is apportioned to organization units and functions in the Budget
for the fiscal year 1925.
Chart 1 exhibits the estimates of appropriations by organization units, exclusive of the Post Office Department,
payable from postal revenues, and gives the allocation of the average dollar to the several departments and estab­
lishments for which the appropriations are recommended. It will be seen that of the average dollar to be appro­
priated 0.46 cent is for the legislative establishment; 13.41 cents for independent offices, of which 11.56 cents is for
the Veterans’ Bureau; that 2.30 cents is for the Department of Agriculture; 9.91 cents for the Department of the
Interior; 9.23 cents for the Navy Department; 11.15 cents for the War Department; 50.41 cents for the Treasury
Department, of which 29.49 cents is for interest on the public debt and 15.98 cents for reduction in principal of the
public debt payable from ordinary receipts; and only 3.13 cents for the Departments of Commerce, Justice, Labor,
and State, the District of Columbia, and the Executive Office.
Chart 2 gives the estimates of appropriations by governmental functions and exhibits the purpose for whicn the
average dollar is to be appropriated for the fiscal year 1925. It shows that of each dollar recommended for appro­
priation 3.65 cents goes for general functions; 37.32 cents for military functions, of which 17.37 cents is for national
defense and 19.95 cents for military pensions, retirement pay, annuities, World War allowances, and life-insurance
claims. It also shows that of the average dollar to be appropriated 11.67 cents is for civil functions, of which 1.91
cents is for promotion, regulation, and operation of marine transportation and 3.15 cents for public works. Of the
total, 47.36 cents of each’ dollar included in the estimates is for nonfunctional purposes. This includes 1.12 cents
for refunds, drawbacks, and like appropriations, 15.98 cents for public-debt retirements, and 29.49 cents for interest
on the public debt.
Chart 3 exhibits the estimated receipts of the Government by sources of revenue, exclusive of postal revenues
for the fiscal year 1925. Of the average dollar to be received 73.84 cents comes from internal revenue, 13.35 cents
will be received from customs, and 12.81 cents will be derived from miscellaneous sources, which comprise interest
and discount, sale of Government property, public-domain receipts, fees, fines, penalties and forfeitures, gifts and
contributions, repayments of investments, District of Columbia receipts, Panama Canal receipts, and trust-fund
receipts.
Chart 4 gives the estimates of expenditures by organization units for the fiscal year 1925. Of the average dollar
to be expended it shows that 12.23 cents will be disbursed by the Veterans7 Bureau; 4.39 cents by the Department
of Agriculture; 0.72 cent by the Department of Commerce; 9.41 cents by the Department of the Interior; 0.65 cent
by the Department of Justice; 0.19 cent by the Department of Labor; 9.43 cents by the Navy Department; 9.53
cents by the War Department; 0.46 cent by the State Department; 50.16 cents by the Treasury Department, of
which 14.62 cents represents reduction in principal of public debt payable from ordinary receipts and 26.99 cents
for interest on the public debt; 0.82 cent by the District of Columbia; and but 2.01 cents to be disbursed by the
legislative branch, the independent establishments other than the Veterans’ Bureau, the Executive Office and defi­
ciencies in postal revenues.
Chart 5 gives the estimates of expenditures by governmental functions. It supplies information showing for
the average dollar the general end or purpose to be accomplished by the expenditures during the fiscal year 1925.
Of the average dollar to bp expended during that fiscal year 3.28 cents will be spent for the general functions of the
Government; 36.54 cents will go for military functions, of which 16.61 cents is for national defense and 19.90 cents
for military pensions, retirement pay, annuities, World War allowances, and life-insurance claims. The chart also
shows that 12.59 cents will be expended for civil functions, of which 1.48 cents goes for promotion, regulation, and
operation of marine transportation, 5.05 cents for public works, and but 6.06 cents for other civil functions; that
47.59 cents will be expended for nonfunctional operations, of which 3.39 cents represents refunds and drawbacks;
41.61 cents for fixed debt charges, of which 14.62 cents is for public-debt retirements payable from ordinary receipts,
26.99 cents for interest on the public debt, and 2.47 cents for the disbursement of trust funds.
The amounts which form the basis for computing the allocation of the average dollar for the estimates of appro­
priations by functions for the fiscal year 1925, Chart 2, are given in detail in Budget statement No. 8. The data
used for the income statement, Chart 3, are supplied by Budget statement No. 3; the data for computing the average
dollar for the estimated expenditures by functions, Chart 5, are given in Budget statement No. 9. The data for Chart 4,
giving the average dollar allocation of the estimates of expenditures by organization units, are given in Budget state­
ment No. 1, and similar data for Chart 1 are given in the recapitulation of estimates of appropriations.
Chart 3 does not include the estimated postal revenues for the fiscal year 1925, because such revenues are not
considered receipts of the general fund.

DESCRIPTION OF GOVERNMENTAL FUNCTIONS.
INTRODUCTION.

A classification by governmental functions has for its purpose to set forth the general end or purposes accom­
plished by the expenditures made by the several organization units of the Government. Each function of govern­
ment represents a service rendered directly to the people or else a service performed as a means of promoting, pro­
tecting, regulating, or administering services directly rendered.
The classification & forth on Statements Nos. 8 and 9 presents, first, the general functions of the Government.
et
These correspond closely to the main organs of government established by the Constitution. The general functions
have been divided into the following:
1. Legislative,
2. Judicial,
3. Executive, and
4. General administration.
The activities and duties of each of these deal with matters in all other functional fields.
Of the specific functions, it is important in the case of the National Government to segregate clearly the expend­
itures for military and distinctly war purposes from expenditures for civil services. Therefore a segregation is
made of the specific functions into the following classes:
1. Military functions.
2. Civil functions.
3. Nonfunctional expenditures.
The military functions represent those activities conducted for military and war purposes and include those
activities of special war agencies and expenditures made by civil services arising from war conditions. These were
of special importance during the recent World War and some of them are likely to continue for an indefinite period.
The civil functions include those functions of government which have to do with the promotion of friendly rela­
tions with foreign powers; those which have to do with the conservation of social order and property; those which
have to do with the conservation of natural resources and economic interests of the people; those activities which
relate to the promotion and protection of health, the care and education of Indians, and the promotion of public
education, educational research, and science.
The nonfunctional expenditures include certain important expenditures which are of a nonorganizational char­
acter. These are for the most part expenditures arising out of war, such as interest on and redemption of public debt,
investments, refunds, and disbursement of trust funds.
The “ refunds” and “ investments” are segregated from other departmental expenditures because the former
represents the repayment or refund of the whole or part of an amount previously received in payment of indebtedness
to the United States, and the latter represents expenditures made in the purchase of notes, bonds, and other choses
in action, and loans to foreign Governments, railroads, and the like, which are not expenses of operation but the
conversion of cash into other assets.
DEFINITIONS OF GOVERNMENTAL FUNCTIONS.

For the purpose of defining the expenditures or appropriations comprehended within each general function, the
following definitions are given:
A -l. Legislative.— Under this function are grouped only those activities of Congress as a legislative body.
A-2. Judicial.— Under this function are grouped those expenditures having to do with the judicial branch of the
Government. It includes all United States courts expenses other than the District of Columbia courts, which are
included under “ Local government.”
A-3. Executive.— Under this function are included the direct cost of the Executive Office, including the salary
and expenses of the President and Vice President and the cost of maintaining the Executive Mansion and grounds.
A— General administration.—Under this heading are grouped the expenditures of certain administrative agencies
4.
which are of a general character dealing with matters in all the various fields of administrative functions and those
departmental expenditures which can not now be allocated to specific civil functions.
This general title includes expenditures for (1) financial administration, (2) Government supply services, (3) public
buildings service, (4) civil pensions and allowance administration, and (5) institutional and general expenses.
Under uFinancial administration” are included the Treasury fiscal services, the Bureau of the Budget, the services
having to do with the collection of taxes, the Public Debt Service, the World War Foreign Debt (Funding) Commission,
and the General Accounting Office.
Under “ Government supply services” are included those organization units of the Government whose function it
is to supply personnel, services, or materials to all other agencies of the Government. It includes such services as the
Civil Service Commission, the Bureau of Efficiency, the Government Printing Office, the Superintendent of Public
Documents, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, the Government fuel yards in the District of Columbia, the General
Supply Committee, and the Coordinator of General Supply.

DESCRIPTION OF BUDGET STATEMENTS.
The Budget statements given herein supply data regarding the income and outgo of the Government, actual
and prospective, during the last completed fiscal year, the year in progress, and the ensuing fiscal year. They
also give financial data showing (1) the financial condition of the Treasury at the end of the last completed fiscal
year (balance sheets), (2) the means by which such condition was reached (operating statements), and (3) the
public-debt transactions and the condition at the close of business June 30, 1923.
Statement No. 1 is the master or key statement of the Budget. This statement, it will be seen, shows not
merely the balance in the general fund at the end of the last completed year, the estimated surplus that will exist
at the end of the year in progress, and the estimated balance at the end of the ensuing fiscal year if the financial
proposals contained in the Budget are adopted, but the means by which this balance has been and will be reached,
t shows, in a word, the revenues and expenditures of the Government, past and prospective, for these years and
exhibits the effect of these amounts in increasing or decreasing the available balance of the general fund.
In considering the showing, past and prospective, it should be noted that payments in respect to the reduction
of the public debt figure among the general fund expenditures of the Government. The total amount of debt
redemptions included among the general-fund expenditures during the fiscal year ending June 30, 1923, amounted
to $613,674,342.95, of which $402,850,491.10 was required by existing law to be made from ordinary revenue, and
the remainder, $210,823,851.85 represents the amount of general fund applied to the redemption of debt in addition’
to that now required by law to be made from ordinary receipts.
The estimated surplus of $329,639,624 for the fiscal year 1924 is reached after deducting the sum of $511,968,125
for the reduction of public debt now required by existing law to be made from ordinary receipts. Taking this item into
account, it shows that the ordinary revenue exceeds all other estimated ordinary expenditures by $841,607,749, or
an estimated improvement in the financial condition of the Government of this amount for the fiscal year ending
June 30, 1924.
The estimated surplus of receipts of $395,681,634 for the fiscal year 1925 has been decreased by the inclusion
of $482,277,975 for debt redemptions out of ordinary receipts. Adding these redemptions to the estimated surplus
of receipts reported in Statement No. 1 indicate an improvement of the financial condition of the Government of
$877,959,609 for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1925.
A feature of especial interest in this table is the manner in which expenditures have been classified with a view
to bringing out the general purposes for which they have been or are to be made. They are thus first classified
under four main heads: (1) Ordinary expenditures, (2) Reduction in principal of public debt payable from ordinary
receipts, (3) Investment of trust funds, and (4) Interest on the public debt. The ordinary expenditures have been
further subdivided to show (a) the general expenditures, by organization units; (6) the operations in special accounts;
and (c) the' capital outlays for rights and obligations— that is, the purchase of obligations of foreign governments
and purchase of farm-loan bonds and loans to railroads.
Statement No. 2 supports Statement No. 1 and supplies the details of the expenditures made for 1923, compared
with the estimates for 1924 and the proposals for 1925, by main branches or administrative divisions of the
Government.
Statement No. 3 also supports Statement No. 1 and supplies details of the sources of revenue of the Government.
It set# out in detail the sources from which the income of the Government was derived in 1923 and is expected to
be derived in 1924 and 1925.
Statements 4 and 5 have to do with the operations of the Post Office Department and Postal Service, payable
from postal revenues. Beginning with the fiscal year 1923, the departmental expenditures of the Post Office Depart­
ment at Washington are also financed from the postal receipts.
Statement No. 4 is a summary showing the results of the operations which for all three fiscal years are deficits.
Statement No. 5 gives in detail the expenditures made and to be made out of the postal revenues. The deficiency
or surplus in postal revenues, it will be noted, is carried in Statement No. 1 and represents the amount of money
which will need to be advanced from the general fund to meet the program recommended in the Budget for the postal
establishment if a deficiency or the amount of money which will be paid over to the general fund if a surplus.
Statement No* 6 was prepared in order to bring out clearly the nature of the relationship between receipts and
expenditures, the sources from which the former are derived, and the purposes for which the latter were or are to
be devoted.
The significance of this statement is that in it expenditures are classified according to character rather than by
organization units, as is done in Statements 1 and 2. It will thus be noted that a distinction is mad^between those
expenditures which are for the current operations of the Government, those that are of a nonadministrative character,
those for construction work, including national-defense structures, and other expenditures. The importance of the
distinctions here made may be seen from the fact that though the expenditure program for 1925 calls for a total
expenditure of $3,298,080,444, only $822,219,348 is for the current operations of the Government. The latter sum,

the

BUDGET, 1925.

it will be seen, is $40,465,706 less than the corresponding item for the year in progress, 1924, and $46,409,908
less than for 1923. Nonadministrative expenses, including such items as interest on the public debt, pensions, etc.,
call for the expenditure of no less than $1,659,424,176 in 1925.
Statement No. 7 is a detailed statement showing the agencies collecting Government revenue. It supplies the
actual revenue items collected in 1923 and estimates of the revenue items to be collected by the several departments
and other organization units during the fiscal years 1924 and 1925.
Statement No. 8 summarizes the estimates of appropriations by governmental functions for the fiscal year 1925
and the appropriations made for the fiscal year 1924. This statement sets forth the general end or purposes to be
accomplished by the expenditure of the appropriations recommended, compared with the appropriations which have
already been made for the fiscal year 1924. The classification given on this statement presents first the general
functions of the Government. This corresponds closely to the main organs of the Government established by the
Constitution. The general functions have been divided into (a) legislative, (6) judicial, (c) executive, and (d) general
administration.
The specific functions are segregated to distinguish the expenditures for military and distinctly war purposes
from expenditures for civil services; therefore, the segregation made in this statement divides the specific functions
into (a) military functions, (6) civil functions, and (c) nonfunctional operations. This statement not only gives
the amount of money recommended for appropriation for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1925, compared with the
actual appropriations already made by Congress for the fiscal year 1924, as of November 1, 1923, but it also shows
the percentages of the amounts allocated to the different purposes.
This statement will be found interesting and informative, showing as it does the approximate amounts devoted
to important Government activities and interests.
It will be found that a total of $110,138,512.75 is carried for general functions, which include the legislative,
judicial, executive, and the general administrative operations of the Government which can not be allocated to specific
civil functions.
The sum of $1,126,302,675 is provided for military functions, which includes military pensions, retirement pay,
annuities and World War allowances, and national defense.
The amount recommended for national defense is divided into two classes: Army, $252,697,441; Navy, $271,229,872.
The amount provided in the Budget for military pensions and allowances includes $230,000,000 for pensions,
$261,065,000 for World War allowances, and $21,037,482 for retirement pay.
The amount recommended for civil functions totals $352,244,121.31. Under this general function $14,639,869 is
allowed for foreign relations and protection of American interests abroad; $18,377,761 for general law enforcement,
which includes activities having to do with the enforcement of general laws and the administration and enforcement
of special acts like the national prohibition act, the narcotic act, and the investigation and prosecution of war con­
tract frauds; $6,566,970 for the control of currency and banking; $12,151,496 for the administration of Indian
affairs; $20,095,840.79 for the administration of public domain, which includes those activities of the Government
having to do with the care and utilization of public lands and the care and utilization of national forests; $13,132,062
for the promotion and regulation of commerce and industry, which includes the activities of the Tariff Commission,
the Federal Trade Commission, the Patent Office, and those activities of the Departments of Agriculture and Com­
merce having to do with the promotion and regulation of commerce and industry; $57,555,683 for the promotion,
regulation, and operation of marine transportation, which includes $30,344,000 for the Shipping Board and Emer­
gency Fleet Corporation; $4,263,084 for the promotion and regulation of land transportation; $26,189,091 for the
promotion and regulation of agriculture; $1,301,720 for the promotion and regulation of fisheries; $4,893,724 for
the promotion of labor interests; $4,083,380 for immigration and naturalization; $16,691,277.80 for promotion of
public health; $10,578,280 for promotion of public education; $15,168,323.66 for science and research; $31,036,060
for local government, including the District of Columbia; and $208,050 for civil relief.
For public works, under civil functions, $95,140,699.06 is carried, which includes $55,100,000 for rivers and
harbors proper and items of similar character; $15,740,500 for roads; $7,240,160 for Panama Canal; $10,984,069.06
for Reclamation Service; $1,550,000 for railroads in Alaska; and $4,525,970 for other public improvements and
Government plant additions.
Under nonfunctional appropriations is carried a total of $1,429,384,637, which includes $33,858,000 for refunds,
losses, contingencies, and miscellaneous; $482,277,975 for public-debt retirements payable from ordinary receipts;
$890,000,000 for interest on the public debt; and $23,248,662 for disbursement of trust funds.
Statement No. 8 a summarizes the estimates of appropriations by character and objects of expenditures for
the fiscal year 1925 and the appropriations made for the fiscal year 1924. It makes a distinction between those
appropriations already made ana herein recommended for (a) current expenses, (b) fixed charges, (c) acquisition of
property, (d) payment of debt, and (e) capital outlays for rights and obligations.
Statement No. 9 gives similar data to that presented by Statement No. 8. It is a summary of expenditures
classified by governmental functions for the fiscal year 1925 compared with prior years. It compares the expend­
itures of the Government by functions from 1915 to 1925, inclusive. It not only gives the amount of money spent
but that which it is estimated will be spent during the current fiscal year and the ensuing fiscal year. It also fur­
nishes the percentages allocated to the different functions of the Government. The expenditures given for all years,
except for the fiscal years 1924 and 1925, are on the basis of warrants issued and charged to appropriation accounts—
that is, warrants issued authorizing withdrawal of cash from the Treasury as reported by the Secretary of the Treasury
in the “ Combined statement of receipts and disbursements, balances, etc., of the United States.
Statement No. 10 gives the appropriations recommended and appropriations made by Congress during the
fiscal year 1924, compared witn the fiscal year 1923, classified by organization units, including those appropriations
made by Congress for which no estimates were submitted by the Chief Executive.

5 Receipts on account of railroad securities $99,297,348.01; and receiyts from miscellaneous sources credited direct to appropriations, 105,911,405.93, which are reported in the
Daily Statement of the United States Treasury for June 30,1923, are deducted in the Budget statements from both receipts ana expenditures, and are thus shown net in the Budget
in order that the figures for the fiscal year 1923 will be on the same basis as those published in the 1924 Budget for the fiscal year 1922. The gross figures given on the Treasury Daily
Statement of June 30, 1923, are/receipts $1,007,135,480.56, and expenditures, $3,697,478,020.26. A final comparison, however, is reported on this Daily Statement, in which the net
figures—that is, those given in Budget Statement No. 1— are used. (See Budget Statement No. 14.)

N ote.— Estimated figures for 1925 in Budget Statement No. 1, above, are based on existing revenue laws. If
the revenue proposals contained in the Budget should be adopted, an annual reduction in revenue of more than
$300,000,000 would result.

EXPLANATORY SYNOPSIS OF THE ESTIMATES OF APPROPRIATIONS.

A73

RELIEF OF INDIGENT, ALASKA FUND.
Appropriation for 1924............................................................................................................................................ $20,000
Budget estimate for 1925........................................................................................................................................ 15, 000

This is an indefinite appropriation of 10 per cent of the receipts from licenses collected outside of incorporated
towns in Alaska which is divided equally among the four district judges to be applied to the relief of persons who
are indigent and incapacitated * * *. On July 1 , 1923, there was an unexpended balance to the credit of this
fund available for redistribution of $20,799.
ALIEN PROPERTY CUSTODIAN.
Appropriation for 1924.......................................................................................................................................... $281, 200
Budget estimate for 1925...................................................................................................................................... 225,000

The principal difference between the appropriation for 1924 and the Budget estimate for 1925 is a decrease from
$262,025 to $207,400 for personal services, the number of employees being reduced from 125 to 102.
It is believed that by the end of the current fiscal year (1924) the office will be in a position to avoid any em­
barrassment from the curtailment of its appropriations.
AMERICAN BATTLE MONUMENTS COMMISSION.
Budget estimate for 1925....................................................................................................................................... $554,280

This commission was created b f the act approved March 4, 1923, entitled “ An act for the creation of an American
Battle Monuments Commission to erect suitable memorials commemorating the services of the American soldier
in Europe, and for other purposes/ 7
The amount of the Budget estimate provides $103,630 for the administrative expenses of the commission, $16,580
for land and interests in land, and $384,Q70 for structures and improvements to land. $50,000 is included also for
preliminary work and plans for the improvement and beautification of American cemeteries in Europe, which is
authorized in the act.
BUREAU OF EFFICIENCY.
Appropriation for 1924........................................................................................................................................... $152, 200
Budget estimate for 1925....................................................................................................................................... 156,150

The Budget estimate of $156,150, while higher than the 1924 appropriation, provides for no additional personnel,
the increase being necessary to take care of increases in salaries under reclassification.
CIVIL SERVICE COMMISSION.
Appropriation for 1924........................................................................................................................................... $990,895
Budget estimate for 1925....................................................................................................................................... 949,116

The Budget estimate for personnel for 1925, including reclassification of the departmental service, is $45,240
less than the 1924 appropriation therefor including increase of compensation. This reduction is in part made pos­
sible by the consolidation of the former statutory salaries of the commission with the appropriation for temporary
employees, and in part by reason of the proposed lump-sum appropriation for 1925. Small decreases in miscellaneous,
contingent, and travel expenses amount to $3,540. The Budget estimate provides for an increase of $7,001 for rent,
which will be required if tne commission remains in its present location.

Budget estimate for 1925.......................................................................................................................................... 5,350

Appropriation for 1924.................................................................................................................................... $431,514,053
Budget estimate for 1925 ................................................................................................................................ 349,065,000

The principal differences between the appropriation for 1924 and the Budget estimate for 1925 are decreases
from $50,780,123 to $46,790,000 for salaries and expenses, involving a net reduction from 28,855 to 24,200 in the num­
ber of employees in the field service; from $200,000 to $164,966 for telegraph and telephone service, from $2,280,000
to $1,724,195 for travel expenses, from $251,000 to $49,183 for transportation of things, from $1,509,900 to $1,370,327
for rents, from $300,000 to $229,733 for equipment; a decrease from $300,000 to $275,000 for printing and binding,
on account of the supply of printed matter on hand and the proposed reduction in size of the annual report for 1924;
and a decrease from $118,450,000 to $83,000,000 for military and naval compensation.
Amounts heretofore appropriated for military and naval compensation continue available until expended. Dur­
ing the fiscal year 1923, $125,671,861.85 was disbursed, leaving an unexpended balance June 30, 1923, of $71,913,400.04.
There was appropriated for 1924, $118,450,000, thereby making available $190,363,400.04 for the fiscal year 1924.
Since it is anticipated that many of the 70,000 veterans now undergoing vocational rehabilitation training, who are
paid from the appropriation for that purpose, will return to a compensation status during the fiscal years 1924 and
1925, it is estimated that compensation payments during 1924 will amount to $132,000,000, leaving an unexpended
balance on June 30 of $58,363,400. This balance with the Budget estimate of $83,000,000 will provide $141,363,400
for the fiscal year 1925.
A decrease from $48,683,710 to $42,000,000 for medical and hospital services: This decrease is due to discon­
tinuing as rapidly as possible the medical and dental examination and treatment of patients on a fee basis, and
adopting the less expensive policy wherever practicable of making examinations and adjninistering treatment on
a salary basis or in Government-owned dispensaries, clinics, or hospitals. There will be a reduction in the amount
required for rentals in the fiscal year 1925, and the amount estimated for repairs and alterations in 1925 to provide
hospital facilities is $3 ,000,000 less than the amount appropriated for 1924. The amount estimated contemplates
savings to be effected by the closing of four hospitals at the end of the fiscal year 1924; provides additional funds
required to operate three new hospitals opened, and five yet to be opened, in the current fiscal year; five new hos­

pitals to be opened in the fiscal year 1925; operation at increased capacity of one hospital to be enlarged in the present
fiscal year and five to be enlarged in the fiscal year 1925. Hospital personnel is paid from the appropriation “ Salaries
and expenses.”
A decrease from $120,743,000 to $89,000,000 for vocational rehabilitation: 70,000 veterans are now m training.
The 1925 estimate is predicated upon a monthly average of 52,984 in training, the number estimated by the Veterans'
Bureau, entailing decreased expenditures of $23,500,000 for maintenance allowance for trainees and dependents,
$864,000 for supplies and materials, $227,000 for rentals, $5,600,000 for tuition, and $602,000 for education and
recreational equipment.
A decrease from $90,000,000 to $88, 000,000 for military and naval insurance: In the fiscal year 1923 disbursements
from this appropriation aggregated $99,464,626.65, and premium increments totaled $16,141,830. The unexpended
balance at the close of the fiscal year 1923, available for the fiscal year 1924, was $13,149,506,88. This balance,
with $90,000,000 appropriated in the act for 1924 and $12,000,000 estimated premium increment in 1924, totals
$115,149,506.88 available for the fiscal year 1924. The estimated expenditure in the fiscal year 1924 is $103,000,000,
with an unexpended balance on June 30, 1924, of $ 12 ,000,000 available for the fiscal year 1925. This balance, with
$8,000,000 estimated premium increment in 1925 and the Budget estimate of $88,000,000, aggregates an availability
of $108,000,000 to meet estimated, disbursements in the fiscal year 1925.

In order to make the figures for 1924 comparable with those for 1925, there has been added to the amounts
appropriated for 1924 the increase of compensation paid to employees whose names appear on the pay rolls of the
various items involved. The decrease in the amount estimated for the construction of rural post roads was due to
the fact that road building in some of the States is not proceeding as rapidly as in others; therefore the amount esti­
mated plus the present available unexpended balance of prior appropriations will meet the Department's immediate
need in J925,

$1,242,140 to $1,007,092.51 for promotion of the welfare and hygiene of maternity and infancy, Children’s Bureau,
for the reason that it is estimated by the Children’s Bureau that only $1,007,092.51 will be required to match con­
tributions which will be made by those States which have accepted the terms of the law; and an increase from $198,860
to $215,000 for salaries in the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The amount the Budget estimates for salaries in the Office of the Secretary of Labor includes salaries for the
19 employees who have heretofore been serving on detail from bureaus of the department. Corresponding decreases
are estimated in appropriations for bureaus from which such details have been made.
NAVY DEPARTMENT.
Appropriation for 1924................................................................................................................................... $297,097, 250
Budget estimate for 1925............................................................................................................................... 278,499,054

In addition to the appropriation for 1924 the expenditure of $35,000,000 was authorized from accumulated
balances in the naval supply account fund and the clothing and small stores fund, making a total availability of
$332,097,250 for the fiscal year 1924, and similarly for 1925 an expenditure of $22,500,000 from the naval supply
account fund is estimated, which would make a total availability of $300,999,054 for 1925.
The amount estimated for the Navy will provide for the present enlisted personnel of 86,000 men; will maintain
approximately the same number of ships in commission as for the fiscal year 1924, but more combatant ships and
less auxiliaries; will increase the steaming radius of combatant ships from 16,200 miles (estimated for 1924) to 22,200
miles; will provide for the training of 1,968 officers and 6,480 enlisted men of the Naval Reserve Force, as against
1,640 officers and 5,300 men for 1924, an increase of 20 per cent; will provide for continuing at a normal rate of speed
the construction of all new ships now under way; will provide for laying down three of the six fleet submarines author­
ized; and will make provision for an increase in public works projects and a slight increase in maintenance appro­
priations to meet the increase in salaries and wages.
The principal differences between the appropriation for 1924 and the Budget recommendation for 1925 are
decreases: From $550,000 to $525,000 for printing and binding; from $2,730,000 to $2,700,000 for pay, miscellaneous,
due to plans of the department for reducing the number of passenger-carrying ships; from $4,000,000 to $3,600,000
for transportation ana recruiting, due to changes in the law regarding travel allowances of discharged men and
changes in administrative methods; from $555,000 to $300,000 for recreation for enlisted men, due to changes in
conditions and the discontinuance of short-term enlistments; from $9,000,000 to $8,097,000 for ordnance ana ord­
nance stores, due to the fact that the completing of the battleship Maryland during 1924 at an expense of $903,000
was paid from this appropriation; from $121,446,892 to $117,000,000 for pay of the Navy, due to the fact that there
will be a large unexpended balance of this appropriation for 1924 and the number of enlisted men will be the same
during 1925; from $16,424,000 to $9,590,000 for provisions, due to a balance carried over from the previous year;
from $3,250,000 to $2,800,000 for freight, Supplies and Accounts, due to a change of plans by the department as to
the class of ships to be kept in commission; from $16,000,000 to $14,500,000 for fuel and transportation, providing
for an average steaming radius of 22,200 miles for combatant ships; from $2,123,798 to $1,888,654 for the Naval
Academy, due largely to the reduction in the number of civilian professors who are to be replaced by commissioned
instructors; and from $54,097,000 to $30,000,000 for vessels under construction, due to the fact that $30,000,000
will be sufficient to carry on the work at a normal rate of speed on all such vessels during 1925 and that the remaining
amount required to complete this program can be deferred to the following year;- and increases: From $3,600,000 to
$4,000,000 for the Naval Reserve Force, which provides for a 20 per cent increase in the number; from $14,440,000
to $15,010,000 for engineering; from $15,565,000 to $15,675,000 for construction and repair of vessels; from $450,000
to $1,200,000 for torpedoes and appliances, to provide for replacement of torpedoes lost during the fiscal year 1923;
from $6,865,000 to $7,100,000 for maintenance, Supplies and Accounts; from $5,650,000 to $6,250,000 for main­
tenance of yards and docks; from $14,647,174 to $15,000,000 for aviation; from $8,604,943 to $9,000,000 for main­
tenance, Marine Corps, due largely to the department's request that hereafter the subsistence of marines afloat be
paid from Marine Corps appropriations instead of from provisions for the Navy, as heretofore; and from $2,866,500
to $4,000,000 for public works, providing for 61 projects which are considered to be the most important.
DEPARTMENT OF STATE.
Appropriation for 1924................................................................................................................................ $15,306,665*50
Budget estimate for 1925............................................................................................................................. 14,988,446.29

The appropriation for 1924 for expenses of passport control is $259,500. Since this appropriation was initiated
by reason of the World War and can no longer be classed as an emergency, the Budget estimates for 1925 for “ Allow­
ance for clerks at United States consulates” and “ Contingent expenses, United States consulates,” have been made
to absorb estimated expenditures of $150,000 and $30,000, respectively, which heretofore have been paid from the
appropriation for expenses of passport control, thereby effecting a net reduction of $79,500.
Tne principal differences oetween the appropriation for 1924 and the Budget estimate for 1925 are decreases:
From $1,625,000 to $1,550,000 for allowance for clerks at United States consulates; from $1,060,200 to $980,000 for
contingent expenses, United States consulates; from $300,000 to $275,000 for transportation of diplomatic and
consular officers; from $150,000 to $125,000 for post allowances to diplomatic and consular officers; from $222,300
to $182,140 for the Mixed Claims Commission, United States and Germany; and from $100,000 to $20,000 for miscel­
laneous trust funds.
The personnel of 590 employees for the department, as distinguished from the foreign intercourse service, is
provided for in 1924 by three appropriations, viz: Salaries, $605,740; additional employees, $260,000; and increase
of compensation, $130,160, makmg a total compensation of $995,900. The Budget estimate includes a single appro­
priation of $1,069,600 for the same number of employees, the increase being due to classification.
The Budget estimate includes $5,000,000 for the payment to Colombia, which is the same as was included in the
appropriation for 1924,

Budget estimate for 192-3.......................................................................................................................... 148, 986, 065. 00

The principal differences between the appropriation for 1924 and the Budget estimate for 1925 are increases:
From $79,020 to $175,780 for the office of the Secretary due to a contemplated transfer of employees now detailed
to that office; from $855,183 to $1,087,400 for the office of the chief clerk and superintendentinvolving an increase
of about $206,000 for stationery, which heretofore has been included in other appropriations, and of about $20,000
for salaries of employees to be transferred from other offices from which they are now detailed; from $362,260 to
$439,160 for the Division of Bookkeeping and Warrants, involving an increase of about $20,000 for contingent expenses,
public moneys, and of about $50,000 for recoinage of silver coins; from $61,727,470 to $61,915,290 for the Internal
Revenue Service, which involves an increase of about $1,500,000 for prohibition enforcement and decreases of $275,000
for allowance or drawbacks, etc., and of $750,000 in the Philippine special fund; from $1,362,390 to $1,540,160 for
the Mint Service; from $9,885,892 to $11,099,750 under the Supervising Architect, due principally to extensions and
remodeling of public buildings, including $375,000 for two additional stories on the Liberty Loan Building; and
decreases: From $3,786,080 to $3,650,000 for the administration of the public-debt service; from $918,906.67 to
$500,000 for expenses of loans (new issues) ; from $2,521,000 to $1,700,000 for preparation and issue of Federal
reserve notes (reimbursable); from $1,013,600 to $993,000 for printing and binding; from $34,355,073.41 to $33,886,640 for the Customs Service, exclusive of a contemplated supplemental estimate of about $ 1 , 110,000 for 1924, the
decrease being in part due to a reduction of $1,500,000 for debentures and drawbacks and of $500,000 for refund of
excessive duties; from $1,837,408 to $1,747,600 for the office of the Treasurer of the United States, involving a reduc­
tion of about $95,000 for contingent expenses, national currency (reimbursable); from $11,464,970 to $10,652,649
for the Coast Guard; and from $8,800,931.62 to $8,767,221 for the Public Health Service.

The amount estimated for the maintenance and operation of the Army will provide for a regular force of 12,000
officers and a maximum of 125,000 enlisted men, exclusive of the Philippine Scouts, which is the force now authorized
by Congress. The average enlisted strength provided for throughout the year is 118,750, which is the strength the
military authorities expect to be able to maintain in view of existing and anticipated conditions of recruitment. It
will also provide for the training of 12,000 reserve officers and 770 reserve enlisted men for a period of 15 days and
615 reserve officers for a period of more than 15 days, as against a total of 7,000 reserve officers and 225 reserve
enlisted men for 15 days and 519 reserve officers for a period of more than 15 days during the current fiscal year;
for the attendance of 25,800 men at citizens7 military training camps as against 28,127 during the current year; for
a total enrollment of 115,000 students in Reserve Officers7 Training Corps units; and will enable the Militia Bureau
to increase the strength of the National Guard to 200,000 officers and men and to maintain an average strength
throughout the year of 190,000 as against an expected average strength of 180,000 during the current fiscal year.
The Budget estimate will also provide for essentials connected with the maintenance and operation of active
military posts, camps, and stations, and, in addition, allows $1,166,850 for new construction; for necessary Army
transportation, including the operation of the Army Transport Service; for purchase of 5,941 horses and mules for the
Army to replace others incapacitated by old age; for the proper upkeep of existing fortifications and accessories; and
for the carrying forward of the general plan for the protection of the Panama Canal and the Hawaiian Islands, with
increased facilities for the development and manufacture of airplane bombs, antiaircraft guns, and ammunition.
For the Air Service $12,435,000 is estimated, which is $9,000 more than the appropriation for 1924, and, in addi­
tion, estimate is made for the reappropriation of a $ 1 ,000,000 balance remaining unexpended from the appropriation
for the fiscal year 1922.
For the United States Military Academy funds are provided for essentials connected with its maintenance and
operation and, in addition, provision is made for the preparation of plans and specifications for a new cadet mess hall,
dormitories, cadet store, and drawing academy.
Funds recommended will care for the various regular nonmilitary activities of the War Department, such as
national cemeteries, national military parks, national monuments and memorials, and the Alaskan cable system,
including the completion of the project for renewing the worn-out portions of the latter.
For rivers and harbors, $37 ,000,000 is estimated for maintenance and improvement; also an additional $5,683,321
will be available from permanent specific and permanent indefinite appropriations for maintenance work on rivers

THE BUDGET, 1025.

The amount estimated for maintenance and operation, sanitation, and civil government of the Panama Canal
and the Canal Zone, namely, $7,240,160, exceeds the appropriation for 1924 by $637,957. The increase for 1925
over 1924 is due to provision of funds for construction of a new power plant at Miraflores, which was authorized by
the act of March 2 , 1923.
In the fiscal year 1924 and prior years the cost of hospitalizing Veterans7 Bureau patients in the National Home
for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers nas been defrayed from Veterans’ Bureau appropriations fund allotted to the home.
The appropriation act of March 2 , 1923, for the War Department for the fiscal year 1924 provides that—
For the fiscal year 1925 and annually thereafter moneys allotted to the Board of Managers of the National Home for Disabled Volunteer
Soldiers by the Veterans’ Bureau for support, maintenance, and care of World War veterans shall not be used to augment or reimburse the appro­
priations made for the support of National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers, but shall be covered into the surplus fund of the Treasury, and
the Budget for the fiscal year 1925 and thereafter shall contain itemized estimates covering the entire cost of the operation and maintenance of
the National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers, including the cost of maintenance, support, and care of beneficiaries of the United States
Veterans’ Bureau in such homes.

The amount estimated for 1925 in excess of the appropriation for 1924 is in compliance with the above provision
of law.
DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.
Appropriation for 1924....................................................................................................................................$26,086, 825
Budget estimate for 1925................................................................................................................................ 26, 879, 812

The principal differences between the appropriation for 1924 and the Budget estimate for 1925 are increases:
From $1,836,800 to $2,086,080 for improvements and repairs of streets, including street construction; from $822,000
to $1,032,000 for sewers, in order to keep pace with the growth of the city; from $1,240,000 to $1,405,000 for street
cleaning, which includes snow removal and disposal of garbage, the increase being needed to keep pace with demands;
from $602,000 to $686,000 for the electrical department; from $6,214,270 to $6,295,700 for the operation of public
schools, due to the increased school attendance and the maintenance of vacation and night schools; from $1,330,000
to $1,687,500 for public school buildings and grounds, the increase being due primarily to the completion of author­
ized projects; from $1,841,000 to $1,905,000 for the police department, which makes provision for a slight increase
in force and automatic promotions; from $1,390,000 to $1,549,000 for the fire department, which provides for the
construction of one drill tower, the purchase of new hose to replace wornout hose, three motor-driven engines, one.
aerial truck, and sites and construction of two new engine houses; from $113,000 to $123,000 for the Tuberculosis
Hospital, which provides for proceeding with the completion of projects already begun; from $214,820 to $322,820
for Gallinger Hospital, which provides for classification for nurses, additional equipment and maintenance. The
new projects for which provision is made in the Budget estimate are $50,000 to complete a portion of Anacostia Park:
$600,000 for a site and new Junior High School in the northeast section; $125,000 for an athletic field at Western High
School; $50,000 for a site for school at Fifth and Buchanan Streets NW.; $20,000 for a site for school at Third and
Rittenhouse Streets NW .; $7,500 for addition to the site of the Burville School; $56,000 for a site and engine house
in the Conduit Road section; and $62,000 for a site and engine house in the northeast section. The Budget estimate
also includes $300,000 for the retirement of District of Columbia bonds maturing August 1 , 1924: no amount for this
purpose was included in the appropriation for the fiscal year 1924.
INTEREST ON THE PUBLIC DEBT.
Appropriation for 1924.................................................................................................................................... $940,000,000
Budget estimate for 1925................................................................................................................................ 890,000, 000

The reduction of the estimate for 1925 under the appropriation for 1924 is due to reduction of the outstanding
principal of the public debt.
REDEMPTION OF THE PUBLIC DEBT REQUIRED TO BE MADE FROM ORDINARY RECEIPTS.
Appropriation for 1924.................................................................................................................................... $511, 968,125
Budget estimate for 1925................................................................................................................................. 482,277, 975

The differences between the appropriation for 1924 and the estimate for 1925 are an increase from $297,144,300
to $310,000,000 in the cumulative sinking fund due to the requirements of law that the appropriation shall be in­
creased each fiscal year by the amount of interest which would have been payable during tnat year on the debt re­
deemed through the operation of the sinking fund during such year; and decreases from $ 10 ,000,000 to $6,000,000
for the redemption of bonds and notes from estate taxes, and from $60,899,500 to $23,045,000 in the repayment
of the principal of the obligations of foreign governments due to repayments during 1924 of $30,500,000 deemed to
have been given'by the British Government for purchases of silver bullion under the Pittman Act, and of about
$7,000,000 from Cuba which completed the repayments of those obligations.
POST OFFICE DEPARTMENT.
Appropriation for 1924................................................................................................................................$585,221, 759. 50
Budget estimate for 1925............................................................................................................................ 613,093,183. 50

The appropriation for the Post Office Department and Postal Service for the fiscal year 1924 amounted to approxi­
mately $585,222,000, but this sum does not correctly represent the probable cost of the service in that year. It was
early apparent that the requirements of the service would demand additional funds if the mails were to be handled
efficiently and expeditiously, and at the present time close reckoning indicates that supplemental estimates for 1924
in excess of $ 12 ,000,000 will be presented to the Congress at the forthcoming session. On this basis $597,250,000 is
the amount which should be used in comparing 1924 appropriations with the 1925 estimates.




EXPLANATORY SYNOPSIS OF THE ESTIMATES OF APPROPRIATIONS.

A81

The estimates of expenditures for 1925, amounting to $613,093,000, represent an approximate increase of
$10,000,000 over the probable cost of the service for 1924, and involve a probable deficiency in postal revenues of
from $2,000,000 to $3,000,000.
The usual increases in the volume of mail to be handled during the fiscal year 1925 and the expansion m postal
facilities necessitate larger expenditures in practically all postal activities. The principal increases in the estimates
for 1925 as compared with appropriations for 1924 are $191,594 for salaries of officers and employees of the Post
Office Department in Washington, of which $142,614 represents the increase due to classification, the remainder
involving new positions and transfers of personnel from field service appropriations; $4,884,500 for allowances for
clerks and other employees in first and second class offices; $387,900 for watchmen, messengers, and laborers; from
$13/276,000 to $14,416,600 for rent, light, and fuel; an increase of $3,323,000 for allowances for city-delivery carriers;
from $45,801,000 to $47,475,000 for salaries, Railway Mail Service; from $930,000 to $1,300,000 for miscellaneous
expenses, Railway Mail Service; an increase of $1,410,766 for railroad transportation and mail messenger service,
$350,000 for foreign mail transportation; $635,000 for manufacture of stamps, stamped envelopes, newspaper
wrappers, and postal cards; from $1,222,000 to $1,303,500 for post-office equipment and supplies; and from
$86,900,000 to $88,250,000 for Rural Delivery Service.
The principal decreases are from $46,695,000 to $46,282,900 for compensation of postmasters, a decrease of
$40,000 for separation of mails at third and fourth class post offices, and a decrease of $500,000 for indemnities on
domestic mail.

6 For use o f Government Printing Office.
* For departments, bureaus, and Congress.
N o t e . —If the salaries asapproved by the Personnel Classification Board are made effective, it is proposed
to increase the salaries of several supervisory positions in the skilled trades which are exempt from the
operation of the classification art in order to equalize their pay with those salaries set by the classification
act. The increases submitted herewith are for that purpose.
Wages of printers, pressmen, and bookbinders in the Government Printing Office are set by law, and the
Public Printer has no authority to chango them unless Congress acts either by fixing a new rate or author­
ising the Public Printer to determine the wages to be paid printers, pressmen, and bookbinders the same
as he now does for other skilled-trade employees and laborers in the Government Printing Office. The
Public Printer is of the opinion that the wages* of the skilled trades and of the skilled and unskilled laborers
should be open to adjustment from time to time to meet changing conditions and to insure the employ­
ment at all times of an adequare number of properly skilled workmen. In accordance with the law fixing
the rate of pay for printers, pressmen, and bookbinders at 75 cents per hour, and in compliance with the
spirit of section 6, paragraph 1. of the classification act, which provides that in computing existing compen­
sation the bonus shall be included, the estimate of 85 cents per hour is submitted for the above trades,
it being assumed that Congress intends the basic pay of all employees, whether included in the classification
act or not, shall be computed in the same manner. This estimate is not intended as a recommendation
that the existing rate is an adequate or inadequate wage under present conditions, but is submitted in com­
pliance with law for Congress to determine whether it will continue to fix the pay of less than 50 per cent of
the employees of the Government Printing Office or will authorize some other agency of the Government
to readjust their wages the same as the Public Printer has done many years for the majority of the
employees.
