BUDGET MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT
To the Congress oj the United States:
I am transmitting the Budget for the fiscal year 1948. It includes
recommendations for the entire Federal program.
Expenditures under existing and proposed legislation are estimated
at 37.5 billion dollars and revenues under existing tax laws at 37.7
billion dollars, leaving a very slight margin of surplus.
I strongly recommend that the Congress take early action to continue throughout the fiscal year 1948 the war excise-tax rates, which,
under the present law, will expire July 1, 1947. My declaration of
the end of hostilities on December 31, 1946, was not issued in order
to achieve tax reduction. I considered it essential that war excise-tax
rates be retained, but I also considered it necessary to terminate the
"state of hostilities7' as soon as it became possible to do so.
I also recommend that the Congress increase postal rates sufficiently
to wipe out the postal deficit.
These recommendations would reduce expenditures to 37.1 billion
dollars and increase revenues to 38.9 billion dollars. We would then
have a budget surplus of 1.8 billion dollars.
As long as business, employment, and national income continue high,
we should maintain tax revenues at levels that will not only meet
current expenditures but also leave a surplus for retirement of the
public debt. There is no justification now for tax reduction. At
today's level of economic activity, our present revenue system will
not yield so much in 1948 as in the current year. We shall no longer
collect large sums from the excess-profits tax, and sales of surplus
property will decline.
Kevenue estimates are, of course, to a very large extent determined by the level of business activity. In this Budget, it has been
assumed that, with minor fluctuations, business activity will average
slightly higher than in the calendar year 1946. A recession in business would cause tax yields to drop. In addition, the cost of supporting agricultural prices and payments to unemployed veterans
would increase. Should such a recession occur, it would be a temporary slump growing out of transition period difficulties and would
call for no revision in our budget policy.
For the fiscal year 1947, it now appears that receipts will amount
to 40.2 billion dollars and expenditures to 42.5 billion dollars. The
M5

M6




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

1-billion-dollar increase in expenditures over the August estimate
occurred largely in veterans7 programs. For example, many more
veterans than had been expected decided to go to college or enroll for
job training. We cannot regret this demand for education, but it
illustrates the kind of uncertainty that cannot be eliminated in
preparing our estimates.
The deficit for the current fiscal year would have been larger if
Executive action had not been taken to place expenditure ceilings on
some activities and to hold them well below the amounts available
under appropriations already made. The way the various departments and agencies of the Government, particularly the War and
Navy Departments, have succeeded in cutting their expenditures is
gratifying. Although public works could not be cut so deeply as
anticipated in August without causing a wasteful stoppage of work
already under way, we shall still show a substantial saving in this
fiscal year for these programs.
This Budget meets our basic requirements for Federal programs at
home and abroad for the fiscal year 1948. The Federal Government
must not only fulfill its contractual obligations; it must also provide the
services that are necessary for the welfare and the progress of the
Nation. We have to carry our proper share of the expense of building
world organization. We must make effective provision for national
defense.
We have many other commitments, both international and domestic, that must be honored. In fact, a very large part of all our
expenditures in the fiscal year 1948 will be required to meet commitments already made. The Budget is designed to meet these needs,
and to execute every program with strict economy.
The reconversion of wartime military and civilian services was far
advanced during the calendar year 1946. Of 26 emergency war
agencies in operation shortly before VJ-day, only 5 remain, and 3 of
these are winding up their work. Two others—the War Assets
Administration and the Office of Temporary Controls—have been
added to help close out the war program. The 1948 Budget assumes
a reduction of civilian employment in the Government as a whole to
less than three-fifths of the wartime peak number—in addition to the
heavy shrinkage of the armed forces.
The Government has been exerting every effort in the wake of the
war demobilization to strengthen and make more efficient its internal
organization and administrative methods. It is essential that citizens

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

receive maximum service for their tax dollars, and the Administration
plans further intensive measures to improve the administrative practices, organization, and efficiency of the departments and agencies.
But the cost of peacetime services has risen strikingly as compared
to these costs before the war. Prewar figures can no longer be used
as a yardstick. Although Government wages have not been raised
so much as private wages, the cost of supplies has risen in line with the
cost of goods in private markets. Further, the population to be
served has grown since 1939 by 10 million people, adding proportionately to the demand for many public services. Many normal
maintenance items had to be postponed on account of the war, and
cannot be further neglected. Normal services which were cut during
the war have to be restored.
Let me now review the expenditure side of the Budget, taking first
the large items which practically determine the size of the total.
1. Interest on the national debt will be 5 billion dollars. This is an
obligation that must be met. '
2. Refunds due under the tax laws are estimated at 2.1 billion
dollars. These are fixed obligations under present law.
These two items total 7.1 billion dollars.
3. National defense is estimated at more than 11.2 billion dollars,
almost all for the operating expenses of the Army and Navy. Though
we expect the United Nations to move successfully toward world
security, any cut in our present estimate for 1948 would immediately
weaken our international position. This large part of the Budget,
in my judgment, represents a proper balance between security and
economy.
The total so far is 18.3 billion dollars.
4. International affairs and finance will call for 3.5 billion dollars,
a sharp reduction from the 6.4 billion dollars required in the fiscal
year 1947. We still have contractual commitments to make good in
connection with our loan agreement with the United Kingdom and
under the reconstruction lending program of the Export-Import
Bank. We must discharge our occupation responsibilities in Europe
and the Far East. We must provide for war damage restoration in
the Philippines and for the relief and resettlement of displaced people
of Europe. We must continue to give relief to some other countries
which are most urgently in need.
The work of the United Nations and the specialized organizations
associated with it is of the highest importance. We must not fail in




3Vf7

8




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

our support. The Department of State, for which increased appropriations are requested, must be prepared to carry an increasing load of
work in the growing field of American foreign relations.
Our international affairs budget is important for peace, security,
and our own prosperity. To reduce it would delay the restoration of
a peaceful and prosperous world.
The total of these four items is 21.8 billion dollars.
5. Veterans' services and benefits will cost more than 7.3 billion
dollars. This country has provided generously for the successful
return of veterans to civilian life and for the care of the disabled.
While the cost looms large in the Budget, much of it goes to provide
education and rehabilitation which will add to our national strength
and prosperity. The cost for veterans7 education, pensions, and
hospitals will increase in the fiscal year 1948; but if employment
remains high, the unemployment payments should be smaller.
Veterans' benefits under present law appear to be adequate.
These five items—interest, refunds, national defense, international
affairs, and veterans—require expenditures of 29.2 billion dollars, or
almost four-fifths of the total Budget.
6. Programs for regulation and improvement of the transportation
and communications systems and for development of natural resources
will amount to 2.6 billion dollars. The largest single item is 443
million dollars for the Atomic Energy Commission. Our major effort
now must be to exploit to the full the peacetime uses of this great
discovery.
About 1.2 billion dollars of the expenditures on these two programs
is for public works construction, and much of the rest is for the promotion of our merchant marine and other aids to transportation.
The expenditure for the Federal-aid program for highways rests on
the Federal Government's agreements with the States. Air transport
will be seriously retarded unless new air-navigation facilities are
promptly supplied. Kiver basin development and harbor improvement cannot be neglected without impairing efficiency in private
enterprise. Most of the public construction projects are already under
way. A few additional projects, not yet started, have been provided
for in 1947 appropriations.
Public construction in these and other fields contributes to the
productive capacity and taxpaying ability of the country. The postponement of public works in good times and their expansion in hard
times will make their contribution even greater. All postponable
public works should be deferred at the present time. But the need to

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

protect and improve our natural resources has become acute as a
result of the war, and we must carry out the works included in this
Budget if we are to avoid waste.
7. Our agricultural program will amount to 1.4 billion dollars.
This includes the price supports guaranteed by law, the conservation
of farm land, and our investments in rural electrification. In addition, the Department of Agriculture will continue its program to
promote research in agriculture and better marketing methods.
This brings the total to 33.2 billion dollars.
8. The Budget programs for social welfare, health, and security, and
for education and general research amount to 1.7 billion dollars. This
total excludes unemployment compensation and old-age and survivors
insurance, which are financed through trust-account operations that do
not appear in Budget expenditures. It does include 481 million dollars
in payments to the railroad retirement trust fund. More than half
of the remaining expenditures is for aid to the aged and other dependent
persons. The rest is largely for protection of public health, for
crime control, and for grants to States for vocational education.
9. The Federal housing program is estimated at 539 million dollars.
The bulk of the housing expenditures is for purchase by the Reconstruction Finance Corporation of guaranteed home loans to veterans
and for continued operation of revenue-producing war housing in
overcrowded communities.
Our social-security program and our education and housing programs can hardly be considered adequate. Improvements in these
fields are seriously needed. Although this Budget does not contemplate major extensions in the next fiscal year, I recommend that the
Congress lay the legislative ground work now for the needed improvements, including general health insurance and a long-range housing
program.
The costs of social welfare, education, and housing bring the cumulative total above 35.4 billion dollars.
The remainder of the Budget totals 2.1 billion dollars. Nearly
one-third is for war liquidation, including the overhead cost of disposing of surplus property. The rest is for services to business and
labor through the Commerce Department and Labor Department,
for general functions of the Treasury, the General Accounting Office,
the legislative branch, the judicial branch, and the Executive Office
of the President, and for many other items. These services, with a
total cost of less than 5 percent of the Budget, are an indispensable
part of the machinery of the Government.




M9

MlO




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

The Budget total of expenditures thus comes to 37.5 billion dollars.
It has always been the Government's duty to provide whatever
assistance is required to afford private enterprise a chance to prosper.
In the nineteenth century a principal economic service of the Federal Government was the opening of the West. The Government
acquired the territory, granted lands to settlers, gave military protection, and subsidized railroads and highways—thereby opening opportunities for the private initiative of the American people.
Today, our great new frontiers are in river-valley developments, in
air transport, in new scientific discoveries, and in application of the
new science and technology to human progress. These new frontiers
can be developed only by the cooperation of Government and private
enterprise.
Our expenditures on developmental projects are a good investment
for the Government. They increase the productive power of the
country and make for higher living standards. Directly or indirectly,
the Government recovers the cost in the form of either service charges
or increased revenue yields to the Treasury.
The Federal Government promotes improvements in agricultural
methods. It provides many services to private enterprise that could
not be organized except by Government. The Bureau of Standards,
for example, furnishes basic scientific data. The Weather Bureau
supplies information used by thousands of farmers and business concerns and has a rapidly developing field of work in aviation weather
reporting. Maps and charts, as well as lighthouses, beacons, and
other physical aids to navigation, are supplied by the Federal Government. Many kinds of statistical reports, required by American
business, are also provided.
Since 1939, our complex system for the production of goods and
services has grown so much that more services than ever are required
from the Government. We cannot risk retarding our growth by lack
of roads, electric power, air-navigation facilities, engineering data,
maps, education, surveys of resources, weather reports, protection
against disease, or any other necessary instrument of progress. There
is a multitude of Government activities which the whole Nation takes
for granted and on which our prosperity depends.
Let me now review briefly the appropriation side of the Budget.
This Budget recommends appropriations of 31.3 billion dollars for
the fiscal year 1948 under existing and proposed legislation. It

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

recommends that authority of 1.5 billion dollars be granted certain
agencies to contract for services and supplies, such as aircraft and
construction. Payments under such authority will be financed from
appropriations to be made in subsequent years.
The expenditures for 1948 still reflect a portion of the cost of our
tremendous war program for which appropriations were made in
previous years. They also reflect certain large international commitments likewise previously authorized. These two factors in large
measure explain why estimated expenditures for 1948 are so much
more than the appropriations recommended for that year.
Existing appropriations available for obligation in 1948 and subsequent years are again under review. As these appropriations become
unnecessary, their withdrawal will be recommended to the Congress.
The Federal Government, as shown by the size of its Budget, has
far greater obligations than at any time before the war. Although the
Budget reflects the urgent need for rigorous economy in the execution
of every program, expenditures are inevitably large. The American
people surely will not shirk their new responsibilities at home and
abroad. They will supply the necessary funds to meet these
responsibili ties.
RECEIPTS

As previously indicated, I cannot recommend tax reduction. The
responsibilities of the Federal Government cannot be fully met
in the fiscal year 1948 at a lower cost than here indicated. Even if
the cost were less it would be desirable in our present economic situation to maintain revenues in order to make a start toward the repayment of the national debt. At the present time, in my judgment,
high taxes contribute to the welfare and security of the country.
Under the wartime tax system, millions of taxpayers with small
incomes are called upon to pay high taxes. When the time comes
for taxes to be reduced, these taxpayers will have a high priority
among the claimants for tax relief.
I have recommended that the war excise-tax rates due to expire
July 1, 1947, be continued. When the time comes for excise-tax
revision, the Congress should review the entire group of excise taxes
rather than concentrate attention on those that were imposed or
increased during the war.
Our long-run tax program must be designed to maintain purchasing
power and provide incentives for a high level of production.




Mil

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

In the corporation section of this Message, legislation is recommended which will require return to the Treasury as miscellaneous
receipts of certain capital funds totaling 379 million dollars.
I also recommend that the Congress reconsider the extent to which
fees should be charged for services rendered by the Federal Government. While it is not sound public policy to charge for all services
of the Federal Government on a full cost basis, and many services
should be provided free, the Government should receive adequate compensation for certain services primarily of direct benefit to limited
groups. For example, I believe that a reasonable share of the cost to
the Federal Government for providing specialized transportation
facilities, such as airways, should be recovered.

Receipts from direct taxes on individuals are estimated to decrease
from the fiscal year 1946 to 1947 because of the lower effective individual income tax rates in the Revenue Act of 1945, and to increase
from the fiscal year 1947 to 1948 because of higher incomes. Direct
taxes on corporations decline in the fiscal year 1947 and further in
1948 largely because of repeal of the excess-profits tax.
The excise-tax estimates increase in 1947 because of increased
consumer demand and increased production, and decline under present
law in 1948 because of the expiration of the war tax rates of the
Revenue Act of 1943. The employment-tax estimates show increases

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

in both fiscal years, due in 1947 mostly to larger pay rolls, and in
1948 mostly to increases in rates as provided by law. Miscellaneous
receipts increase in 1947 over 1946 largely because of increased receipts
from disposition of surplus property and decline in 1948 largely because
of a decline in surplus-property receipts.
BORROWING AND THE PUBLIC DEBT

The public debt reached a peak last February at 279 billion dollars.
During the remainder of the calendar year, the debt was reduced by
over 20 billion dollars and stood near 259 billion dollars at the end of
December. Most of the securities retired were held by banks. This
reduction was accomplished by drawing down the Treasury cash
balance to a level more in line with peacetime requirements.
We propose to continue the sale of savings bonds. The proceeds
will be available to redeem marketable securities—particularly those
held by the banking system. It is important that every citizen in a
position to do so help to maintain a sound economic situation by purchasing and holding United States savings bonds.
The annual interest charge of about 5 billion dollars is less than
3 percent of our current national income. It is well within our
capacity to pay, particularly if we keep up a high volume of national
production. The best method of keeping down the burden of the
debt is to maintain prosperity. A single year of depression can
lay more burdens on the people than many years of gradual debt
reduction can relieve.
Our debt-management policy is designed to hold interest rates at
the present low level and to prevent undue fluctuations in the bond
market. This policy has eased the financial problems of reconversion
for both business and Government. The stability of the Government
bond market has been a major factor in the business confidence which
has been of such value in achieving full production. Low interest
rates have also relieved the burden on the taxpayer. The Treasury
and the Federal Reserve System will continue their effective control
of interest rates.
EXPENDITURE PROGRAMS

In this year's Budget, expenditures are grouped under a new
functional classification in order to present to the Congress and the
people a clearer picture of the purposes for which Federal funds are
spent. To facilitate comparison, figures for previous years are also

The Budget classifications and Budget totals reflect all transactions
in the general and special accounts and the excess of expenditures
over receipts of wholly owned Government corporations. For the
first time, the net expenditures of wholly owned corporations are
classified on a functional basis. The Budget totals do not include
the operations of trust accounts. However, such transactions, when
significant, are discussed in connection with the various Budget
programs.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

NATIONAL DEFENSE

Expenditures for "National defense" remain by far the largest
category in the Budget. The cost of maintaining the military, air,
and naval forces necessary in the fiscal year 1948 will be high. The
present defense establishment requires larger forces, more complex
mechanized equipment, more intensive use of equipment, and more
extensive developmental activity than before the war.
However, in the fiscal year 1948 these expenditures will be but oneeighth of the outlays in the peak wartime fiscal year, 1945. This
drastic cut reflects a corresponding reduction in the size of the armed
forces. Outlays for munitions have been reduced even more.
Despite these reductions, our defense establishment will not have
fallen to its ultimate peacetime level by the end of the fiscal year
1948. We still have large responsibilities arising out of the war.
Military occupation in Europe and the Far East must continue. The
lines of communication and supporting installations for the occupation
forces must be maintained. Recruits must be trained as replacements.
The high cost of our defense establishments requires that the
program be operated with the utmost efficiency. In the estimates
for 1948 emphasis has been placed on eliminating as much duplication
and overlapping in activities as is possible under present conditions.
In my State of the Union Message I have again urged establishment
of a single department of national defense. This is an important
step in the search for economy and efficiency in organization and
administration of the armed services.
I recently appointed an advisory commission to study the need
for a universal training program. We still have available from the
war much of the equipment and installations which will be needed
for such a program. The program, after it has been worked out
and approved, will still require considerable time to get under way.
Estimates for it have, therefore, not been included in this Budget.
Since plans are not complete for the training program, a small amount
has been included in the Budget to cover the cost of induction machinery whenever provision is made for it.

o Excludes disbursements of approximately 1,500 million dollars for the War Department and 250 million dollars for the Navy Department which have appeared as Budget expenditures in previous years.

Expenditures.—"National defense/' as used in this Budget, is much
less inclusive than the category used last year. For example, War
Department expenditures of 645 million dollars in 1948 for supplies to
and administration of occupied areas (other than Army pay, subsistence, and related items) are now in "International affairs and
finance." Likewise, expenditures for the atomic energy activities
of the Manhattan District project beginning January 1, 1947, when
the Atomic Energy Commission took control, are shown in "Natural
resources." For the fiscal year 1946 and the first 6 months of the fiscal
year 1947 this program remains in "National defense."

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

The level of expenditures for
have been 1.7 billion dollars higher, and the reduction from 1947 to
1948 correspondingly greater, except for certain adjustments—1.5
billion dollars in War Department accounts and 250 million dollars
in Navy accounts. Some funds withdrawn from the Treasury in
1946 and earlier years, and reported as expenditures at the time, were
not used until 1947. Also some expenditures by the War Department
in 1947 were offset by credits from funds which had accumulated in
trust accounts during the war.
The expenditure estimate of 11.1 billion dollars in 1948 for the Army
and Navy for military purposes reflects the reductions from the current
fiscal year in the number of military personnel and in war-liquidation
outlays—such as mustering-out payments (reduced by 370 million
dollars), contract termination (700 million dollars), and surplus property handling. On the other side, the estimate reflects greater procurement in the fiscal year 1948, as war inventories cease to be available
to supply current needs.
The estimated expenditures of 6.7 billion dollars for the War Department in the fiscal year 1948 include 132 million dollars for public
works under supplemental legislation. The Navy expenditures of 4.4
billion dollars also include 77 million dollars for ship construction and
public works under supplemental legislation. In both instances the
objective is to return to the peacetime procedure of obtaining specific
legislative authority for these programs.
Taken together, the War and Navy Department expenditures estimated for the fiscal year 1948 provide for an average military strength
of 1,641,000 men and officers. Of this, Army strength is projected at
1,070,000 throughout the year; Navy and Marine strength will begin
the year at 598,000 and average 571,000. These figures compare
with an average strength in the fiscal year 1947 of 2,108,000. Pay,
subsistence, travel, welfare, training, clothing, and medical expenditures for military personnel are estimated at 5.2 billion dollars in
the fiscal year 1948, as against 6.7 billion dollars in the current year.
Average annual costs per man for these purposes—about 3,100 dollars
in 1948—have increased markedly since VJ-day. Fully 45 percent of
Army and Navy expenditures in 1948 are in this category.
Expenditures by the War and Navy Departments for all other
military purposes are estimated at 5.9 billion dollars in the fiscal year
1948. This sum covers procurement, research and development,
construction, operation and maintenance, and citizen-reserve activities. The estimates for 1948 contemplate proceeding with construction projects of highest priority at overseas bases and in the continental




Ml?

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

United States, and limiting procurement to those items essential for
the current operation, maintenance, and training of the military
forces, except for aircraft and limited quantities of newly developed
items.
Effective defense under modern conditions requires us to push ahead
in scientific and technological fields. Toward this end, expenditures
for research and development by the Army and Navy are projected
at 530 million dollars in the fiscal year 1948—slightly above their 1947
rate. Similarly, we must keep alive the knowledge of military skills
among our citizens. To provide for an orderly expansion of citizenreserve organizations, expenditures of 308 million dollars are projected
in 1948—about two-thirds more than the outlays in the current fiscal
year when these programs are getting under way. The reserve organizations of the Army will still be below planned strength at the end
of 1948.
The bulk of the terminated Army and Navy contracts has already
been settled, with creditable dispatch. For all agencies, total commitments canceled on 318,000 prime contracts exceed 65 billion
dollars. After deducting credits due the Government, total payments to contractors under the entire program are estimated at about
6.5 billion dollars. Of this total, about three-fourths of a billion dollars
remained for payment at the beginning of the fiscal year 1947. Most
of this has now been paid in final settlements or in advances pending
settlement.
Applications for terminal-leave payments to enlisted military personnel have been smaller than expected. It is now estimated that
1.9 billion dollars will be paid in 1947 and only 250 million dollars
in 1948.
Lend-lease expenditures in the fiscal year 1947 from funds appropriated to the President are largely interappropriation adjustments
and payments for articles procured and services rendered in previous
years. In 1948 there will be very small expenditures—all for closing
out the program.
Except for some military aid to China and minor items, lend-lease
was terminated after VJ-day. Since then, lend-lease goods valued
at over 1 billion dollars have been sold to foreign countries on a cash
or credit basis. Much progress has been made in effecting settlements with the countries which received about 50 billion dollars of
lend-lease aid and extended almost 8 billion dollars of reciprocal aid.
Final settlements have now been negotiated with the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, India, France, Belgium, and Turkey,

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

and discussions with the Netherlands, Norway, and the Union of
South Africa are nearing completion.
The military program for stock piling of strategic materials has been
reviewed carefully to minimize interference with business requirements. New stock piling is estimated at 90 million dollars in the
fiscal year 1947 and 33 million dollars in 1948. In addition, excess
metals and materials, amounting to 87 million dollars this year and
210 million dollars in the fiscal year 1948, will be transferred from
Reconstruction Finance Corporation stocks to the Treasury military
stock pile. Apart from stock piles transferred to the Treasury, the
receipts of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation in its war activities reflect largely the rental and disposal of excess war plants, together
with the sale of metals, minerals, and other commodities to the public.
Appropriations.—To finance the expenditure program outlined
above, appropriations of 9.5 billion dollars and new contract authorizations of 541 million dollars will be necessary in the fiscal year 1948.
These totals include 262 million dollars of supplemental appropriations and 91 million dollars of contract authorizations under legislation shortly to be submitted. The new appropriations needed in
1948 are about 2 billion dollars lower than the estimated expenditures,
which include provision for payment of substantial amounts of
unliquidated obligations of prior years.
INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS AND FINANCE

The budget for our international program is designed to contribute
to a peaceful world and a stable world economy. We have definite
responsibilities to our wartime allies and in occupied countries. Our
international lending program is an essential part of our efforts to
achieve a world economy in which private trade will flourish.
The period when large-scale general relief is required for our allies
is almost over. With the termination of the United Nations Relief
and Rehabilitation Administration, there will remain, however, the
urgent question of refugees and displaced persons. I urge the
Congress to provide adequate support for the International Refugee
Organization, now in process of being formed under the United
Nations. It is also necessary that we provide a modest relief program for a few countries which are still in desperate straits. I recommend that the Congress speedily enact legislation to authorize these
expenditures for which I am making provision in this Budget. In

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

Expenditures:—The sharp decline in total expenditures in the fiscal
year 1948 is due chiefly to the fact that in 1947 we shall complete
our payment to the International Monetary Fund and our basic
cash subscription to the International Bank for Reconstruction and
Development. Further liabilities to the International Bank will
arise only if we are called upon, within the limits of our total subscription, to join with other countries in making good any defaults
by borrowers from the Bank.
More than half of our expenditures in the international field in the
fiscal year 1948 will be loans for reconstruction or trade expansion.
Disbursements will be predominantly under existing commitments.
By the end of the fiscal year 1948 we shall have discharged about
three-fourths of our commitments under our loan agreement with
Britain. Since the International Bank is now ready for business,
new authorizations for reconstruction loans by the Export-Import
Bank are being sharply curtailed. In the future, the Export-Import
Bank will be primarily concerned with loans to finance United States
trade and small developmental loans in which we have a special
interest. Outlays by the Export-Import Bank in the fiscal years 1946
and 1947 have been financed to a considerable extent by the sale of
capital stock to the Treasury. Since the Treasury subscription is
now complete, future net outlays will be financed entirely by sale of
notes to the Treasury.
The existing appropriation for United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration expires at the end of the current fiscal year.
Estimated expenditures in 1948 are entirely to wind up the program.
During the fiscal year 1948, the War Department will incur expenditures for administration and relief in Germany, Japan, Korea, and the
Ryukyus and for administration in Austria. We must continue to
provide subsistence to prevent disease, hunger, and unrest, and to
provide proper administration, if these lands are eventually to become
democratic and self-supporting. Moreover, shipments of food and
other supplies are required to maintain the working efficiency of the
populations and to stimulate production. Resulting increases in exports from these areas will furnish a growing source of funds to pay
for necessary imports and thus help eliminate the need for financial
assistance.
The recent agreement for economic unification of the British and
United States zones in Germany will increase exports from those zones
and help to make them self-sufficient by the end of the calendar year
1949. All costs incurred for the support of the German economy are




M22




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

to be repaid out of future German exports as quickly as recovery
permits.
An important contribution to the economic revival of the occupied
areas is being made by Federal agencies such as the U. S. Commercial
Company in temporarily financing exports from these areas. Net
dollar proceeds are currently being used primarily to purchase raw
materials and equipment needed for a further expansion of exports
in order to hasten the time when the occupied areas will become fully
self-supporting. To aid in this program, I urge that the Congress
authorize the U. S. Commercial Company to continue operations
beyond June 30, 1947, the present expiration date.
Aid for the Philippine Republic includes assistance in rebuilding
its economy, payments to fulfill our pledge to compensate partially
for war damage, and maintenance of training programs for Philippine
citizens. The 1947 total includes a Reconstruction Finance Corporation loan of 75 million dollars for aid in financing the current budget
of the Republic.
Estimated expenditures of 18 million dollars for our membership in
international organizations consist primarily of our share of the administrative budgets of the United Nations and its affiliated specialized
organizations. In view of the immense tasks we have entrusted to the
international organizations, this is a modest sum. Our contribution
to the InternatioDal Refugee Organization and funds for additional
relief are included under proposed legislation.
Expenditures by the State Department are expected to increase in
the fiscal year 1948. It is of utmost importance that the Department
be equipped with sufficient funds and an adequate staff to make its
maximum contribution to international peace. In 1948 there will be
an increase of expenditures to carry on the improved Foreign Service
program authorized under the Foreign Service Act of 1946. The
Budget estimate for the Foreign Service buildings fund provides for
the purchase of real property obtained by the Office of the Foreign
Liquidation Commissioner in lend-lease and surplus property settlement agreements with other nations. Payment for these properties
by the State Department increases miscellaneous receipts of the
Treasury by a corresponding amount.
Appropriations.—Appropriations for the fiscal year 1948 total
1,169 million dollars, mainly for the administration and relief of
occupied countries and for various State Department programs.
Funds for loans by the Export-Import Bank in the fiscal year 1948
will be obtained under its current borrowing authority. Advances
to the United Kingdom will be made under the existing authorization.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

M23

The appropriations total includes 11 million dollars of anticipated
supplemental for the State Department and 76 million dollars for
proposed legislation.
VETERANS' SERVICES AND BENEFITS

The Servicemen's Readjustment Act provides education and training benefits, unemployment and self-employment allowances, and loan
guarantees. National service life isnsurance is an additional tangible
benefit. For those who suffered di abilities, the best of medical care
is provided. Pension rates for disabled veterans and for dependents
of veterans were increased by the last Congress. In addition to the
veterans' program, our servicemen have been assisted in resuming
civilian life by mustering-out payments and terminal-leave payments.
Since the main purpose of our veterans' program is to reestablish
former servicemen in civilian life, we must carefully avoid types of
assistance which would encourage, or unnecessarily prolong, dependence upon Government subsidy. Any other policy would not only
put an intolerable burden upon the taxpayer, but would be a great
disservice to veterans themselves.
Although some amendments to veterans' legislation may still be
required, no major new programs of assistance appear necessary. The
job is now primarily one of effective administration. The Veterans'
Administration has made great progress in establishing machinery
that will administer this comprehensive program with speed and
equity.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

Expenditures.—The readjustment benefits program as a whole will
continue in 1948 at its present level, as reductions in unemployment
allowances will be offset by increases in education and loan-guarantee
expenditures. These estimates assume continuing prosperity and
present legislation.
In the fiscal year 1947, almost 1,100,000 veterans, on the average,
are drawing unemployment allowances and more than 200,000 are
receiving self-employment allowances, at a time when total unemployment in the United States is less than 2,500,000. The turn-over
on the allowance rolls has been rapid. Almost one-half of the
14,000,000 discharged from the services have already drawn unemployment or self-employment allowances. In recent months tightened administration and a more positive job-placement program by
the employment service have contributed to a reduction in the numbers on the allowance rolls. In the fiscal year 1948 it is expected that
about 900,000 veterans on the average will receive nearly one billion
dollars in these allowances.
On the average 2,000,000 veterans are receiving education and training benefits in the fiscal year 1947. In 1948 possibly 2,100,000 will
participate at a cost of over 2.3 billion dollars. We have had to
meet an acute situation with respect to educational and housing
facilities in universities, colleges, and schools throughout the country.
In the fiscal year 1948 the Federal Works Agency will largely complete the conversion of war surplus facilities for educational purposes.
The number of trainees receiving on-the-job training has increased
sharply to over 600,000. To guard against misuse of public funds, the
Congress, in its last session, wisely provided limitations on subsistence
allowances to veterans whose earnings exceed fixed monthly amounts
and also clarified the standards to be used by the States in approving
training establishments. Such limitations on subsistence allowances
are essential to assure equity for veterans and taxpayers alike.
Amendments liberalizing the loan-guarantee program have brought
a sharp increase in the number of loans guaranteed and in the average size of the guarantee. During the fiscal year 1947, new loans will
be. guaranteed for 750,000 veterans; in 1948, for possibly 1,000,000.
Roughly, 90 percent of these loans are made to finance home purchases by veterans. Expenditures in 1948 will be somewhat higher
than in 1947—just over 100 million dollars for payment of the first
year's interest on the guaranteed portion of the loan and for losses
which are still relatively small.

M25

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

Pension payments to disabled veterans and to dependents of veterans rose sharply from 1946 to 1947, as claims arising in World War II
were granted. The increase in 1947 expenditures also reflects the 20
percent rise in pension rates approved by the last session of the Congress, Estimated expenditures of 2.5 billion dollars for pensions in
1948 include about 150 million dollars for subsistence allowances to
disabled trainees and students. An average of 3,150,000 individuals
will receive pensions and compensation in 1948—50 percent more than
in 1946. This program will continue to increase for years to come.
Expenditures for insurance, which are mostly transfers to the
national service life insurance trust fund, will decline sharply in
1948 with a corresponding decline in the trust fund accumulations.
The total cost to the Government for servicemen's insurance in World
War II will approach 3.7 billion dollars by the end of 1948 with small
additional costs to come later.

The most extensive hospital and domiciliary construction program
in the history of this Nation is now under way. The construction of
veterans' hospitals and domiciliary facilities now authorized and
recommended for authorization aggregates 1 billion dollars. Such
construction, chiefly under the direction of the Corps of Engineers,
will continue to increase in the fiscal year 1948. Less than half of
the total program, however, will be completed by the end of that year.
In the fiscal year 1948 the operating and general administration
expenses for veterans' programs as a whole will be somewhat higher
than in the present year, chiefly because of the expansion of hospital
facilities and improvement of medical care.
General administrative expenses for programs other than hospital
and medical care are estimated in 1948 at about the 1947 level. The
number of veterans participating in the readjustment, pension, and




M26




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

insurance programs will be higher, but the work load will fall as the
number of entrants drops off.
The Administrator of Veterans' Affairs is carrying out a decentralization program aimed at attaining more effective administration through
more direct contact with veterans in their communities.
Appropriations.—For these veterans' programs, this Budget recommends appropriations of 7,009 million dollars and contract authorizations of 220 million dollars to cover obligations to be incurred in the
fiscal year 1948.
SOCIAL WELFARE, HEALTH, AND SECURITY

In spite of the achievements of the past 11 years in promoting the
health, welfare, and social security of the American people, much
remains to be done. Our present program affords but partial protection against the major causes of insecurity; large segments of the
population are excluded from its benefits. We have not yet done
enough to secure good health for the Nation.
The Federal Security Agency has recently been given broader jurisdiction over the social-welfare activities of the Government. As previously recommended, I favor creating a well integrated, yet flexible,
Cabinet department of health, education, and social security to
supersede this agency.
I hope that the studies already undertaken by congressional committees will result in the prompt expansion and integration of the
present social-security system. There is, for example, serious need
to correct inequalities between States in public assistance payments
and to extend the scope of Federal aid to include general assistance
programs. The temporary increase in Federal grants for public
assistance enacted in the last session of Congress will expire December
31, 1947; the Congress should now consider permanent legislation in
this field. The estimated expenditures for the fiscal year 1948 include
provision for such legislation.
The old-age and survivors insurance system at present leaves out
40 percent of those who earn their living. Even greater numbers
are outside the unemployment compensation program. It is unjust
to deny these agricultural workers, public employees, and other
excluded groups the protection of social insurance. The system
should be extended to cover them. At the same time, retirement
benefits,for the aged should be liberalized to reduce the necessity for
piecing out insurance benefits with public-assistance payments.

M27

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

Recent legislation for hospital construction, for increased activities
in mental health, and for expanded maternal and child-health services
are substantial achievements toward improving the substandard
health level of a large part of the population. But the major problem
of financing health care still persists. Therefore*, I again urge the Congress to enact a health-insurance program which will make adequate
medical care available to everyone and provide protection against
the economic hardships of sickness. Such a program should be almost
entirely self-financing through pay-roll contributions.

Expenditures.—A large part of the social-insurance program is
financed through trust-account operations which are not included in
Budget expenditures. Pay-roll taxes collected by the States to finance
unemployment compensation are deposited directly in a Federal trust
account. The proceeds of Federal pay-roll taxes to cover old-age and
survivors insurance are deducted from the receipts side of the Budget
and do not appear as Budget expenditures. For the railroad retirement
system, however, the pay-roll tax receipts are included in net Budget
receipts and the amounts transferred to the trust account appear in
Budget expenditures. Similarly, the Government contribution to the

Trust fund withdrawals by the States to pay unemployment benefits
depend not only on the number of unemployed in covered employment,
but also on the rate of turn-over. Budget expenditures for unemployment and accident compensation are mainly Federal grants to
the States for administrative expenses of unemployment compensation. With high employment, accumulations in the trust fund will
continue and administrative expenses will remain low.
Withdrawals from the trust fund for old-age and survivors insurance
will continue to increase over a long period. As the program matures,

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

the number of beneficiaries and the average benefit will gradually rise.
A large estimated increase in receipts of this fund in the fiscal year
1948 is based on the assumption that the employment'tax will rise from
the present 2 percent rate on employers and employees to 5 percent
on January 1, 1948, in accordance with present law.
Estimates for Budget expenditures for retirement and dependency
insurance reflect the action of the last Congress in broadening the
Railroad Retirement Act by adding survivors insurance and liberalizing benefits. Employer and employee tax rates were increased,
resulting in larger payments to the trust account. These payments,
which vary according to the railroad-pay-roll level, are expected to
continue high. The major part of administrative expenses for old-age
and survivors insurance is now paid directly from the old-age and
survivors insurance trust fund and is therefore not included in Budget
expenditures after the fiscal year 1946; this change is responsible for a
sharp drop in the Budget item for the Federal Security Agency for
retirement and dependency insurance.
Federal payments for assistance to the aged and other special
groups are expected to increase in the fiscal year 1948 because of a
continuing long-term rise in benefit levels and case loads. A sharp
rise in the expenditures in the fiscal year 1947 results from the higher
public assistance benefits under temporary legislation and the inclusion
of the school-lunch program in this category beginning this year.
Expenditures for promotion of public health are estimated slightly
higher than in the current year. Although the total for the fiscal
year 1948 includes expanded research and State-aid programs, including the Federal-State hospital program, these additions are
largely offset by reductions of 24 million dollars owing to termination
of the nurses' training program and of the maternity and infant-care
program for families of servicemen.
Appropriations.—For the fiscal year 1948 the Budget includes
appropriations of 1,877 million dollars, of which 74 million dollars
are for proposed legislation. The recommended appropriation for
the Railroad Retirement Board for the fiscal year 1948 exceeds the
estimated expenditures to permit transfer to the trust account of
taxes and income from 1947 and previous years; this transfer will take
effect in the current fiscal year. The recommended appropriation
for the hospital construction program is greater than the estimated
expenditure^ because the program is just getting under way.

HOUSING AND COMMUNITY

FACILITIES

I have urged the Congress to enact the essential features of the
general housing bill which was passed by the Senate last year. The
most urgent immediate requirements are for incentives and aids to
private lenders and builders to provide lower cost housing, especially
rental housing, for assistance to local communities in their programs for urban redevelopment and low-rent housing, and for a permanent agency to supervise the major housing activities of the
Federal Government.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

Expenditures.—In our housing program we shall continue to rely
primarily upon private housing construction. During the past year,
with the assistance of many public and private agencies, we have
succeeded in securing a rapid expansion in the supply of building
materials available for construction of veterans' housing. With the
increased materials flow now evident, emphasis in the coming year
will be focused on a few key materials, on acceleration of programs
for recruitment and training of labor, and on provision of ample
financing facilities for builders and prefabricators, as well as veterans
and other purchasers. Particular attention will be given to measures
to expand construction of rental housing. Many of these operations
to aid private housing construction are reflected in expenditures of the
Office of Temporary Controls, the Department of Labor, the Veterans'
Administration, and the Reconstruction Finance Corporation, as part
of programs classified elsewhere.
The programs of the Federal Housing Administration and the Federal Home Loan Bank Administration involve relatively small net
expenditures, but are of major importance in stimulating private construction. In the fiscal year 1948 the Federal Housing Administration expects to guarantee loans on 325,000 homes and apartments,
most of them for new construction. During the same period savings
and loan associations which are members of the Federal Home Loan
Bank System will make an estimated 300,000 loans for financing
new homes.
From an expenditure standpoint, the chief aids to private housing in
the fiscal year 1948 will be provided by Reconstruction Finance
Corporation purchases of mortgages guaranteed by the Veterans'
Administration and the Federal Housing Administration. In the
fiscal year 1948, purchases of veterans' home loans are expected to
account for the great bulk of all mortgages purchased by the Reconstruction Finance Corporation. With the rapid rise in guaranteed
loans to veterans (see "Veterans' services and benefits"), the Federal
Government has recognized that its responsibility to the veterans can
be realized only by assuring private financial institutions the same
ready market for these obligations that they already possess for mortgages insured by the Federal Housing Administration. The lending
institutions in turn have a responsibility to make sure that their
loans will benefit the veterans and will not burden them with impossible future obligations.
Reconstruction Finance Corporation funds have also been employed
to make premium payments to increase the supply of critically scarce
building materials. In view of the rapid expansion in output and the




M31

M32




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

decontrol of prices, it appears that these programs can be terminated
before the close of the current fiscal year.
The repayment of Home Owners' Loan Corporation loans will
taper off in 1948 as its outstanding loans shrink. With its profits in
recent years, we can now safely predict that this Corporation—which
refinanced the loans of more than a million distressed borrowers
during the depression—will liquidate without any loss to the Federal
Government.
Expenditures on public housing programs are now concentrated
almost entirely on liquidation of war housing activities and provision
of emergency housing units for war veterans. Conversion of barracks
and other types of temporary war structures—the largest expenditure
item in 1947—will be substantially completed in the current year.
Under this program an estimated 255,000 units are being provided for
veterans and their families—more than half for veterans in educational
institutions.
The continued housiag shortage in many industrial areas has made
it necessary for the Government to continue operating many temporary war housing units longer than previously expected. More
than half of these units are occupied by veterans and servicemen.
Expenditures in the fiscal year 1948 for management and disposition
of war housing show an apparent increase primarily because receipts
from the program are now deposited in miscellaneous receipts, rather
than credited against expenditures. Payments of 85 million dollars
also are forecast to transfer previous net receipts from rentals and sales
into the general receipts of the Treasury. If allowance is made for
these transfers and nonrecurring net receipts of 64 million dollars in
1947 from liquidation of the Defense Homes Corporation, program
expenditures for war housing will decline substantially in 1948 from
1947 levels.
Receipts from the low-rent housing program will temporarily
exceed expenditures in the current fiscal year because of anticipated
repayments of loans by local housing authorities. Annual contributions to local housing authorities required by previous contracts
will rise gradually as wartime tenants are replaced by low-income
occupants.
Expenditures of the Federal Works Agency for defense public works
will be virtually completed in the fiscal year 1948. Disbursements to
localities for detailed planning of local public works will be limited to
previous commitments under existing legislation.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

On the other hand, disbursements on Reconstruction Finance Corporation loans to local agencies for construction of self-liquidating
projects will be increased as materials become available to resume*
urgently needed work. To make sure that funds are adequate for
these disbursements, I request that the present 100-million-dollar
limitation on Reconstruction Finance Corporation loans for these
purposes be increased to 125 million dollars.
Appropriations.—Of the total of 179 million dollars in appropriations estimated for the fiscal year 1948, an estimated 150 million
dollars will be from current rental and disposition receipts of the
veterans' re-use and war housing programs. Most of the 1948 expenditures will be made from Corporation funds or from unexpended
balances of previous appropriations.
EDUCATION AND GENERAL RESEARCH

Our generous provision for education under the veterans7 program
should not obscure the fact that the Federal Government has large
responsibilities for the general improvement of educational opportunities throughout the country. Although the expenditure estimates for
the coming fiscal year are limited to present programs, I have long
been on record for basic legislation under which the Federal Government will supplement the resources of the States to assist them to
equalize educational opportunities and achieve satisfactory educational
standards.
The relationship of the Federal Government to higher education
also demands serious consideration. The veterans' readjustment
program, which compelled a rapid emergency expansion of facilities
to meet immediate needs, has focused attention on this fundamental
problem. A Presidential commission on higher education is studying
the matter because of its great importance to the future of the Nation.
Many agencies of the Federal Government carry on research as a
part of their regular programs. But we need a central agency to
correlate and encourage the research activities of the country. While
freedom of inquiry must be preserved, the Federal Government should
accept responsibility for fostering the flow of scientific knowledge and
developing scientific talent in our youth. To accomplish this, I
recommend again that a National Science Foundation or its equivalent
be established. The Scientific Research Board appointed in October
1946 is now making a study of the research program of the entire

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

Federal Government in its relation to all other research activities
planned or in progress. Its report will undoubtedly be of service in
Establishing a proper program for the new agency. It is assumed that

Expenditures.—Federal expenditures for promotion of education,
apart from the veterans' education program, now consist almost
entirely of vocational grants to States, support of land-grant colleges,
and general administration of the Office of Education. The Federal
Works Agency will complete during the fiscal year 1948 its expenditures for the maintenance and operation of schools in war-affected
communities. Corresponding expenditures prior to the current fiscal
year are classified in "Housing and community facilities."
In August 1946, the Congress increased the authorization for vocational education by 15 million dollars. It is not possible at this time,
however, for the State and local governments to make firm commitments on the availability of matching funds for the development of
new programs of vocational education or the expansion of existing
programs. Therefore, although the estimates of appropriations and
expenditures for the fiscal year 1948 include an anticipated supplemental appropriation under this authorization, it may be necessary
to increase the amount on the basis of later information from State

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

and local governments. Money for this purpose has been included
in the reserve for contingencies.
Expenditures for educational aid to special groups include funds
for education of Indians through the Department of the Interior and
smaller amounts for assistance to the blind and the deaf and to Howard
University through the Federal Security Agency. The major part of
the estimated increase in expenditures is for construction of four
buildings at Howard University, for which Congress has already
appropriated money for drawing plans. Their construction is made
urgent by the pressure of enrollment upon all existing facilities.
The increase in expenditures for library and museum services is due
chiefly to the general expansion of activities of the Library of Congress.
Research is inherent in many Federal programs and consequently
the bulk of such expenditures is included in the specific programs to
which the research relates. The principal items of continuing expenditure for those research programs which serve several purposes or
are general in character are in the Bureau of the Census, the Bureau of
Standards, and the Coast and Geodetic Survey—all within the Department of Commerce. Some expansion of these activities is contemplated in the estimates for the fiscal year 1948. The Office of
Scientific Research and Development, which was devoted to research
in support of the war effort, will be almost completely liquidated in
the fiscal year 1947.
Appropriations.—The total of appropriations for education and
general research is 85 million dollars for the fiscal year 1948—3
million dollars less than the estimated expenditures. This total
includes a tentative estimate of the amount which will be required
under the new authorization for vocational education.
AGRICULTURE AND AGRICULTURAL RESOURCES

Because of high consumer incomes in the United States and the
continuing world shortage of many foods, the demand for farm products will doubtless remain strong throughout the fiscal year 1948.
Agricultural production goals for the 1947 crop year, with a few exceptions, will call for another year of maximum output.
The demand for American farm products, however, cannot be
counted upon to continue indefinitely at the present high level. Under
present legislation the Department of Agriculture is required to
support prices of most agricultural commodities until December 31,
1948.

720000—47-




M35

M36




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

We must design our agricultural policies to work toward a better
balance of supply with demand and so avoid excessive expenditures
for price support. We should facilitate the transfer of unnecessary
farm labor and resources from agriculture to industrial and other
pursuits. We shall need also to devise ways of supporting farm income which will retain export markets for wheat, cotton, and tobacco,
and at the same time give the American consumer the benefit of
increasing efficiency in farm production.
The authority of the Commodity Credit Corporation expires on
June 30, 1947. Since the Corporation now has a State charter, I am
recommending that it be rechartered by act of Congress and that its
present borrowing authority of 4,750 million dollars be renewed.

Expenditures.—By the fiscal year 1948 the program of the Commodity Credit Corporation will be limited almost entirely to price
support for agricultural commodities. Reimbursements from lendlease, United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration, and
foreign governments will be largely completed in the next 6 months.
Liquidation of inventories is tapering off. For the present, the high
level of farm prices has made price-support outlays unnecessary except
for a few commodities such as potatoes and eggs.
In 1948, however, even with continued general prosperity, an
estimated 330 million dollars will be spent to support agricultural
prices. Larger outlays will be required should markets weaken
seriously. In addition, loans by commercial banks guaranteed by
the Commodity Credit Corporation will probably be substantial.
The present borrowing authority, if renewed, will be ample to support
agricultural prices during the fiscal year 1948.
Receipts from other corporate transactions in the Department of
Agriculture are expected to be lower in 1947 and 1948 than in 1946.
In 1946 there were unusually large repayments to the farm credit
agencies and large receipts in revolving funds of the Treasury from
return of capital of mixed-ownership corporations. In view of the
large repayments and refinancing of the loans of the Federal Farm
Mortgage Corporation, this Budget recommends that the Corporation's
borrowing authority of 2 billion dollars be reduced to an amount




M38




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

more nearly commensurate with foreseeable needs. This recommendation should be considered when the Farm Credit Administrationsubmits its report on the mortgage-loan programs of the Corporation and the Federal land banks.
The rural rehabilitation and farm tenant programs, formerly under
the Farm Security Administration, and the Crop and Feed Loan
Division of the Farm Credit Administration have been merged to form
the new Farmers' Home Administration. This program shows an
apparent increase in 1948, solely because of the changed method of
financing required in the Farmers' Home Administration Act of 1946.
The increased estimates for Rural Electrification Administration
loans will permit expansion of a program that is urgently needed by
farmers but has been held back during the war years.
Commitments for payments to farmers under the Agricultural
Adjustment Administration conservation and use program for the
1947 crop year have already been made as provided by the 1947
appropriation act. Expenditures for this program, including administrative expenses, are estimated at 311 million dollars in the fiscal
year 1948.
A year ago the Budget Message recommended gradual reduction of
these payments, and that recommendation is now renewed. More
than 60 percent of the total payments go to about one-eighth of the
Nation's farmers. Most of this money thus is being paid to farmers
who, because of their strong position in American agriculture, would
undoubtedly continue the best farm management practices without
the persuasion of a bonus from the Treasury.
We should shift our effort from this kind of subsidy to providing
technical guidance to all farmers for soil conservation and management, along the lines of the Soil Conservation Service and the Extension Service. I therefore propose that the appropriation act limit the
conservation and use program for the crop year 1948 to 200 million
dollars instead of the 300-million-dollar program to which we are
committed for the crop year 1947. This will not affect expenditures
materially until the fiscal year 1949.
Expenditures to encourage exportation and domestic consumption
of farm products are financed under section 32 of the act of August
24,1935, by a permanent appropriation equal to 30 percent of customs
receipts. In the fiscal year 1946 expenditures for the school-lunch
program were financed by this appropriation. These have been
transferred to "Social welfare, health, and security" in later years.
The remaining expenditures in 1947 and 1948 are for export subsidies,

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

diversion of surplus commodities to new uses, and purchase and
distribution of surplus agricultural commodities to State welfare
agencies. Addition of the cotton export subsidy program previously
financed by the Commodity Credit Corporation and other increases
offset the transfer of the school-lunch program.
Almost all wartime food subsidy programs of the Commodity
Credit Corporation and the Reconstruction Finance Corporation
have now been discontinued. Subsidy payments from corporate
funds in the fiscal year 1948 will be limited to sug<*r, which is
expected to remain in short supply. In addition, payments to sugar
growers in the United States under the Sugar Act program will remain
at approximately the present level.
Expenditures for agricultural land and water resources, which
include the Soil Conservation Service, upstream erosion and flood
control, water conservation and utilization, and the submarginal land
program, are estimated to increase slightly in 1948.
Expansion of agricultural research under the Research and Marketing Act of 1946 will cost an additional 18 million dollars in the fiscal
year 1948. The farm labor supply program will decrease by about
16 million dollars. Other general programs for the development and
improvement of agriculture, such as the Extension Service, the scientific research agencies, and the staff agencies of the Department of
Agriculture, will remain at about the present level. Thus, the programs in this category as a whole will increase by 3 million dollars.
Appropriations.—To carry out our agricultural programs, I recommend that the Congress appropriate 824 million dollars for the fiscal
year 1948. In addition, since not all of the permanent appropriation
of section 32 funds will be required to subsidize exportation and
domestic consumption of surplus agricultural commodities, the transfer of 100 million dollars to the Agricultural Adjustment Administration program for conservation and use of agricultural land resources
is recommended. In 1947, 42.5 million dollars of section 32 funds were
so transferred. In view of the probable need for these funds after
1948 for surplus disposal programs, however, we cannot look forward
to their continued annual use for the conservation and use program.
The operations of the various agricultural corporations and the
agricultural programs of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation
will be financed out of corporate funds borrowed from the Treasury.
It is estimated that 830 million dollars of notes owed the Treasury
by the Commodity Credit Corporation will be canceled in 1948




M39

M40




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

pursuant to the appraisal of the assets of the Corporation as of June
30, 1946. This cancellation of notes will be an expenditure under
general and special accounts and a receipt under corporation accounts,
and thus will have no net effect on Budget expenditures or on the
appropriations recommended for 1948.
NATURAL RESOURCES

The natural resources program has been increasing to fill some of
the gaps arising from wartime deferments and depletions. The estimated expenditures for the fiscal year 1948 represent a further expansion over the current year. They do not contemplate initiation of
large new projects.
The harnessing of atomic energy was a war achievement, and it
remains of major military significance. With the appointment of
the Atomic Energy Commission last fall we have entered on a new
phase of development. This Commission has assumed direction of
the Manhattan Engineer District project. Our aim is to bring the
benefits of atomic research to industry and medicine aiid to enrich
standards of well-being.
In line with the shift in emphasis, the atomic energy program, since
December 31, 1946, is classified in "Natural resources." This transfer
in the middle of the current fiscal year and the inclusion on a full-year
basis in 1948 are major reasons for the increases in expenditures for
resource development in both years.
Expenditures.—In order to push forward basic research in development and use of atomic energy, I am recommending a program which
will involve expenditures of 444 million dollars in the fiscal year 1948.
This compares with total outlays of 385 million dollars in the current
fiscal year, of which 179 million dollars are shown in "National
defense.''
Much of the productive future of this Nation lies in the effective
development of our river basins. Under the Bureau of Reclamation
and the Corps of Engineers, this work will go forward in 1948 at a somewhat increased expenditure rate. The estimates provide for continuation of projects under way and starting those projects for which 1947
appropriations were made, but which have been temporarily deferred.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

Some expansion of transmission facilities is needed by the Bonne
ville Power Administration to market the hydroelectric power generated at certain of the Government's multiple-purpose dams. Receipts
of 25 million dollars from the sale of power by this agency and the
Southwestern Power Administration will be paid into miscellaneous
receipts of the Treasury in the fiscal year 1948.
Expenditures of the Tennessee Valley Authority will increase in
the fiscal year 1948 as work progresses on the two large dams provided
for in the 1947 appropriations. By the end of 1948 construction of
the major dams will be almost complete; thereafter, the principal
activity will be directed toward the effective utilization of local
resources for industrial and agricultural improvement within the
valley. The Tennessee Valley Authority finances its power operations and transmission facilities from its own revenues. The Authority will continue the practice started in the last fiscal year of
making payments to the Treasury.
Expenditures by the International Boundary and Water Commission for the United States share of the construction of dams and other
water improvements on the Rio Grande, in cooperation with the
Mexican Government, will be expanded in 1948, pursuant to the 1944
treaty.
Among the other expenditures by the Department of the Interior
for land and water resources in 1948, the major portion is for the
use, protection, and improvement of the public lands which it manages.
The estimated expenditures for 1948 for grazing activities contemplate
restoration of the program to approximately the 1946 level. Appropriations for thefiscalyear 1947 were cut to a level that does not permit
adequate protection and conservation of these grazing resources. The
Department of the Interior is investigating the feasibility of raising
grazing fees to cover the operating costs of the Grazing Service and also
service charges on the cost of capital improvements.
Because of critical needs for lumber, our forests, both public and
private,, must be administered to yield the maximum immediate supply
without unduly impairing future timber resources. Expenditures for
the Forest Service for the fiscal year 1948 provide for increased timbersale administration and forest-fire control. These increases are offset
by decreases in other phases of the work.
Our mineral resources have been seriously depleted during the war.
Substitutes or new sources of supply must now be found. As part of
our military program we are accumulating a strategic stock pile of
critical materials from both domestic and foreign sources. To plan

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

this program successfully and to assure adequate supplies for industrial and consumer use, it is essential that we have full information on
our domestic resources. Consequently, the Bureau of Mines and the
Geological Survey will make small expansions in their mineral resource
programs in 1948.
During the war the national park system has been maintained on
virtually a custodial basis only. Increased expenditures are required
in 1948 to provide the most needed improvements in roads, parkways,
buildings and utilities, and for general administration and protection.
Other resource programs of the Department of the Interior will
increase by 7 million dollars in 1948. General surveys and topographical mapping activities by the Geological Survey must be
accelerated to provide basic data needed for natural resources programs and industrial development. Expenditures for conservation and development of fish and wildlife resources reflect a small
increase in operating costs.
Some progress has been made in the development of Alaska, but
only a beginning. Included in several of these programs are expenditures for the investigation and development of the natural resources of
this vast area.
Appropriations.—Appropriations of 779 million dollars for resource
development in the fiscal year 1948 include an estimated supplemental of 4 million dollars for the Forest Service. The total is substantially below estimated expenditures for that year. Postponement
of some of the public works projects for flood control and reclamation
in the current year will leave available in 1948 substantial balances
from earlier-year appropriation^. Similarly, the curtailment of other
resource development activities has resulted in some carry-over of
appropriations for these programs. A smaller amount from 1948
appropriations will be available to finance expenditures in later years.
In the case of the Atomic Energy Commission, the Budget recommendation includes contract authority in the amount of 250 million
dollars in addition to the 250 million dollars of recommended appropriations. The appropriations to discharge obligations under this
contract authority will be made in future years when the payments
become due.
TRANSPORTATION AND COMMUNICATION

Six years of deferred maintenance and improvement must be made
up before the basic postwar needs of motor and water transportation

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

are met. The highway system, particularly, has fallen far behind the
standards which should prevail under conditions of rapidly growing
use. Urban congestion is again becoming a serious problem. Likewise, the enormous expansion of civil aviation since VJ-day has thrown
an increasing burden upon inadequate airway and airport facilities.
An expanded program is essential if undue hazards in the air are to be
avoided and if the development of aviation is to continue without
serious technical impediment. At the same time it is hoped to restore
prewar service standards in the postal service. The enforcement of
regulatory standards, particularly those designed for accident prevention in all types of transport, should be restored, at least to prewar levels.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

It is the policy of the Government to withdraw from ship operation
as rapidly as possible and to dispose of vessels in a manner that will
promote a large and effective merchant fleet under our flag. But, since
private operators see little prospect of profit in the coastwise trade and
much of the overseas traffic is regarded as temporary, Government
operations have continued. The Maritime Commission reconversion
program, the lay-up of vessels in the reserve fleet, and the preparation
of war-built vessels for sale are under way.
Expenditures.—The Maritime Commission, by its petition before
the Interstate Commerce Commission, is attempting to obtain revision
of the railroad rate structure in order to permit resumption of domestic
shipping under private auspices. We must look to the domestic trade
to provide the active core of our merchant fleet reserve, since we
cannot hope to maintain in the foreign trade alone a merchant fleet
adequate for the Nation's security. Because the long-run needs of
foreign trade are not yet clear, the expenditure estimates contemplate only a moderate expansion in operating subsidies. Construction
of new vessels is limited to those for which private purchasers are available and those essential to meet specialized needs for which war-built
vessels cannot be adapted. I hope that the rate of ship disposition
and liquidation of Government operations can be expedited.
Under the War Department are two major functions relating to
transportation—the Panama Canal and the rivers and harbors work
of the Corps of Engineers. To make up deferred maintenance, to
continue at a minimum rate river and harbor construction projects
already under way, and to make a slow beginning on projects authorized under the 1947 appropriation it is necessary to expand the expenditures during the fiscal year 1948.
Other aids to navigation are those maintained and operated by the
Coast Guard (in the Treasury Department). The large decrease in
the fiscal year 1948 reflects the return to a normal program, the completion of previously deferred work during 1947 and early 1948, and
some reduction in Coast Guard aviation. In the interest of reducing
expenditures, the installation of the Loran system of radio navigation
aid will be spread over a number of years.
Most Federal expenditures for highways are concentrated in the
Federal-aid program under the Federal Works Agency. This is a
matching program in which Federal expenditures depend upon the
level of State activity within the authorized annual rate of 500
million dollars established for each of the first three postwar years




M45

M46




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

by the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1944. Materials shortages,
contracting difficulties, and high costs have delayed this program,
but the situation should ease by next year. Sums apportioned to
the States, however, are available only for a year after the close of
the fiscal year for which they are authorized, and the rate of expenditure has thus far been well below congressional authorizations.
States are, therefore, under pressure to obligate these funds at once.
As has been urged by many of the States, it is recommended that the
Congress extend for one additional year the period during which
these funds may be expended. Moderate increases for the Agriculture and Interior Departments are included to begin to overcome
the long deferment of work on the forest roads and trails and Indian
roads.
The sharp upward trend in expenditures by the Department of
Commerce for civil aviation results from the rapid expansion of the
industry. Inadequate facilities and services have caused serious
congestion and a threat to air safety. The expansion and modernization of the airways system provided in these estimates is essential for
the continued progress of the industry and could not be reduced
without great risk.
As the rapid growth of aviation continues, I believe it is unwise to
place the entire burden of expanding, improving, and maintaining
the airways upon the general taxpayer. Instead, civil aviation should
bear a reasonable share. The Department of Commerce is considering the feasibility of various methods to recover part of the expenses
from the users.
Substantial expenditures for grants-in-aid to airports under the
1946 legislation are anticipated for the first time, increasing from 7
million dollars in the fiscal year 1947 to 50 million dollars in 1948.
This will be channeled as far as possible into urgent work designed
to relieve bottlenecks in air transport, but the apportionment formula
will limit the discretion of the Civil Aeronautics Administration in
scheduling first the most needed projects.
Unless legislative action is taken to revise postal rates, the Post
Office deficit threatens to be the largest in history. Mail volume has
expanded enormously, but current operating costs have increased
even more rapidly. This is the chief cause of the deficit. Further
temporary additions to expenditures result from the need to take up

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

deferred maintenance and replace equipment. The Post Office
Department is studying its operations with a view to introducing
economies. I am instructing the Postmaster General to institute all
operating economies consistent with reasonable service and to prepare
a comprehensive recommendation for rate revision sufficient to wipe
out the deficit.
Appropriations.—Appropriations of 1,196 million dollars are included in the Budget for the fiscal year 1948 for "Transportation and
communication/' compared with estimated expenditures of 1,530
million dollars. Unobligated balances in Maritime Commission revolving funds are adequate for all expenditures with the exception
of an appropriation of 6 million dollars recommended for the maritime training fund and aid to State marine schools. War Department and Federal Works Agency appropriations fall below expenditure estimates because of the deferral to 1948 of work for which
appropriations were already made in 1947. The appropriations total
includes 50 million dollars for the Civil Aeronautics Administration
as an estimate of the appropriation request that will be made for the
airport program as soon as the plans of the Agency are sufficiently
matured. Contract authorizations of 500 million dollars are included
for the Federal-aid postwar highway construction program.
FINANCE, COMMERCE, AND INDUSTRY

By the end of the current fiscal year, almost all wartime controls
of business will have ended. I recommend that the Congress extend
the authority for rent control; price control on sugar and sirups, and
rice; sugar rationing; export and import controls; priority and allocation controls on a few commodities still in extremely short supply;
and a few other minimum controls which are indispensable for the
time being.
Now that we are returning to a peacetime economy that depends for
its success on private enterprise, the Government should resume and
expand its services to business, including both financial and nonfinancial aids. In addition, free enterprise depends on positive
Government action to preserve competition and control monopolies—
proper functions that a democratic government must not neglect.

Expenditures.'—During the rest of this fiscal year, the Office of
Temporary Controls will discontinue as rapidly as possible direct
controls over business operations previously administered by the
Civilian Production Administration and the Office of Price Administration. Although a few essential controls should be retained a little
longer, these, too, will be terminated as soon as conditions permit.
Among the other regulatory agencies, Foreign Funds Control
(Treasury) and Solid Fuels Administration (Interior) will also cease
operations this year.
The peacetime regulatory agencies, however, must be strengthened
from low levels justified during the war by the existence of other direct
controls. This Budget, therefore, provides for the necessary increases
in such essential agencies as the Federal Trade Commission, the
Federal Power Commission, the Antitrust Division (Justice), and the
Tariff Commission.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

The Antitrust Division will concentrate its efforts on major violations of the antitrust laws. The Federal Trade Commission will
increase its effectiveness by operating on an industry-wide basis, rather
than through the slower procedure of individual complaints. It will
also sponsor a larger number of industry conferences designed to locate
and eliminate unfair trade practices through cooperative action.
In the past year, we have made a fine start in building up the business service programs of the Department of Commerce from their low
wartime levels. To provide necessary information for business, provision of funds is recommended for a census of manufactures (already
authorized by law) and likewise for a census of business to be authorized by proposed legislation. No census has been taken in either area
since 1939 and present information is badly out of date. A small but
necessary increase in the business service activities of the Bureau of
Foreign and Domestic Commerce is also recommended. The Patent
Office urgently needs increases in personnel to cope with the growing
backlog of patent applications and to handle registrations under recent
trade-mark legislation.
The Reconstruction Finance Corporation estimates assume that repayment of outstanding wartime loans to business enterprises will continue in the fiscal year 1948, but at a slower rate. In its peacetime
business loan program, the Corporation has been authorizing about
1,000 loans a month, chiefly to small business. Ninety percent of them
are in amounts of 100,000 dollars or less. The new program also
emphasizes guarantees of private credit rather than direct Government loans. These guarantees will not require disbursements in any
large amount unless there should be an economic recession. In this
event the Reconstruction Finance Corporation stands ready to purchase the loans offered by participating banks.
Since January 1946, the Reconstruction Finance Corporation has
been administering the loan and lease program of the Smaller War
Plants Corporation. Disbursements on previously authorized Smaller
War Plants Corporation loans are nearly finished and outstanding
loans are gradually being repaid. In the fiscal year 1948 the Reconstruction Finance Corporation plans to retire an estimated 100 million
dollars in Smaller War Plants Corporation capital stock.
The War Damage Corporation, a Reconstruction Finance Corporation subsidiary, which at its peak had a total of 140 billion dollars of
war damage insurance in force, fe also terminating its operations. By
1948 it will be in full liquidation. The Reconstruction Finance Corporation has been directed to return to the Treasury the 210 million
dollars of net profits from this operation.




M49

M50




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

The expenditures of 310 million dollars for retirement of Smaller
War Plants Corporation capital and return of War Damage Corporation profits will be paid into miscellaneous receipts and thus have no
net effect on the total Budget. With these transfer items eliminated,
the net increase of expenditures under this function in 1948 is 33
million dollars.
Federal and State bank supervisory authorities are making special
efforts to encourage banks and insurance companies to complete
repayment of their prewar obligations to the Reconstruction Finance
Corporation. By June 30, 1948, the outstanding volume of such
loans and investments will be down to 100 million dollars out of a
total of about 3.5 billion dollars disbursed since 1932.
With stock market activity and new security issues far above wartime levels, the Securities and Exchange Commission requires additional funds to rebuild its depleted staff and thus provide more adequate protection for the millions of investors.
Appropriations.—To finance the expenditures for these programs,
estimated appropriations in the fiscal year 1948 of 116 million dollars
include anticipated additional appropriations of 53 million dollars required by proposed extension of the existing authority of the Office of
Temporary Controls and the authority of the Department of Commerce to control exports. They also include 14 million dollars for
new censuses under proposed new legislation.
LABOR

The facilities of the Federal Government for dealing with the welfare
of labor and with labor-management disputes provide for the encouragement of collective bargaining, administration of laws and regulations to protect the working force, assistance to States in promoting
employment opportunities, and gathering of basic labor information.
In my message on the State of the Union, I have asked that the
machinery in the Department of Labor for facilitating collective bargaining and expediting the settlement of labor-management disputes
be amplified and strengthened. I have included administrative funds
for this purpose under proposed legislation.
I recommend also that the Congress authorize grants to States
through the Department of Labor for programs fostering safe working
conditions. The toll resulting from industrial hazards reduces the
productive capacity of the labor force. The new program should be
administered by State departments of labor under Federal standards.

legislation.

Expenditures.—The National Labor Relations Board has an accumulation of unresolved cases awaiting action owing to the increased
incidence of representation cases and unfair labor practice cases and
to the reduced appropriations available for the Board's work this
year. Delay in settling such cases is in itself a cause of labor disturbance. Apart from the backlog of unsettled cases, the number
of cases brought before the Board for settlement has increased. The
program submitted in this Budget is designed to reduce the backlog
and keep the Board more nearly current in handling cases. This
should diminish the incidence of strike action by labor organizations
which is encouraged by tardy handling of cases.
The public employment service system, although now composed of
the coordinated employment office facilities of the several States, is
still financed in full by the Federal Government. Expenditures for
these offices for the fiscal year 1947 are estimated at 90 million dollars.
This includes the increased cost of State operation and 11 million
dollars of nonrecurring terminal-leave pay for Federal employees upon
the return of the employment service to the States. It is my hope
that the public employment service system will maintain the high
standard of operations and the efficient procedures which have proved
essential for facilitating the flow of workers to areas where they are
needed.

M52




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

I propose also increased expenditures for labor information and
statistics to facilitate collective bargaining and meet the more important needs of labor, business, Government, and the general public for
current data concerning employment, wages, prices, and the like.
Appropriations.—For 1948, I recommend appropriations of 118
million dollars, including the amount for proposed legislation.
GENERAL GOVEENMENT

The principal types of expenditures in " General government" are
for (1) legislative and judicial activities, and executive management
and control; (2) the Government payment toward civilian employees'
retirement; (3) other services covered by appropriations which relate
to more than one function; and (4) a few special programs necessitated
by the war, such as disposal of surplus property, which do not logically
belong in any other category.
Expenditures for these functions in the fiscal year 1948 are expected
to decline only moderately from the comparable total for 1947;
because they will still include a substantial amount for war liquidation.
Such activities will account for more than one-third of all the
expenditures in this category.
Expenditures.—The work load of the Treasury Department remains
at a high level. For example, in the Bureau of Internal Revenue tax
returns for previous years remain to be audited, pending excess-profitstax cases must be investigated and settled, special efforts are continuing to reduce tax evasion, and the number of tax returns to be reviewed is increasing as war veterans revert to civilian status. Further,
with the resumption of foreign trade and passenger travel and the
designation of new airfields in the United States and Alaska as ports
of entry, the staff requirements of the Bureau of Customs are above
the level of 1946.
The Government payment toward the Federal civilian employees'
general retirement system will be larger in the fiscal year 1948 than
in the current year. About half of the increase reflects the advance
in salary rates which took effect July 1, 1946, and was not covered in
the appropriation for 1947. The remainder of the increase applies
against previous liabilities of the Government to the retirement
system.

The surplus property disposal program, under the War Assets Administration, is at its peak during the current fiscal year. Henceforth,
it will be tapering off, but disposal will be relatively more difficult
as Government stocks of scarce items are reduced and as civilian production increases. The statutory provisions governing the sale of
surplus property which give preference to certain groups of purchasers have greatly complicated the disposal program, slowing down
sales and augmenting administrative costs to such an extent that
Congress might well reconsider these provisions. The expenditures
of the War Assets Administration cover only part of the handling of
surplus property; many other Federal agencies participate in this




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

M54




program. The proceeds from sales of surplus property are included in
miscellaneous receipts of the Treasury.
The return of war dead from overseas is a civil function of the War
Department which is just getting under way. The total cost of this
program is estimated at 234 million dollars. Efforts will be made to
complete this work in the next 2 years.
Public buildings construction programs of the Federal Works
Agency will remain at a low level, but certain expenditures for repair
and maintenance of buildings cannot be delayed. Together with
expenses for current operation of the buildings, these constitute a
sizable portion of "General government77 expenditures.
Appropriations.—The appropriation total of 1,341 million dollars
for the fiscal year 1948 includes 75 million dollars for anticipated
supplemental appropriations. The total is well below the estimated
expenditures, mainly because the War Assets Administration will be
paying obligations incurred against earlier appropriations.
INTEREST ON THE PUBLIC DEBT

The volume of interest payments on the public debt reflects the
magnitude and composition of the debt, as well as the level of interest
rates. As long as prosperity permits, our objective should be a
steady retirement in the outstanding debt. Interest rates will be
kept at present low levels through continued cooperation between the
Treasury Department and the Federal Reserve System.

The estimated increase of 50 million dollars in interest payments in
1948 over 1947 is due principally to (1) increased interest payments on
the larger volume of special issues held by trust funds which pay
relatively high rates; (2) increased accruals on savings bonds, owing to

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

M55

a large volume of bonds reaching higher accrual brackets; and (3)
the change from semiannual to annual payment of interest on certificates of indebtedness, effective September 1, 1946. The net effect
of these factors has been to increase interest costs in 1948, even though
the debt has been declining since its peak on February 28, 1946.
Interest payments are made on the basis of a permanent appropriation. The amount shown under recommended appropriations is equal
to the estimated expenditures.
REFUNDS OF RECEIPTS

Tax refunds will be a large item in the Budget for some years to
come, largely because of overpayment of individual income tax under
the current payment system and settlement of the wartime incomeand profits-tax liabilities of corporations. The overpayments made
each year under the current payment system are in the main refunded
during each immediately succeeding year. The refunds to corporations, attributable to wartime tax liabilities, will be spread over the
next several years because of the time required to effect final settlement in many cases where the various carry-back and other relief
provisions are applicable. If the war excise-tax rates are continued,
refunds in 1948 will be 123 million dollars lower.

CIVIL PUBLIC WORKS

In the Budget, construction projects are listed in the programs
which they serve. In total the expenditures for civil public works
are estimated at 2.1 billion dollars in 1948 compared with 1.7 billion
dollars in 1947. These are discussed in detail in part IV.
Federal public works provide capital assets from which the Nation
derives benefits over a long period of time. During the past decade




M56




MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

the responsibility of the Federal Government, both directly and
through grants to the States, has increased. Public construction is
essential to our veterans, natural resources, transportation, social
welfare, and housing.
Construction programs have to be scheduled over a number of
years. The work done in any one year is largely controlled by legislation and appropriations in prior years. For these reasons the program for 1948 is larger than that for 1947. While curtailment orders
in August 1946 slowed down the program, they could not alter the
trends already established by legislation.
The recommendations for the fiscal year 1948 for grant and loan
programs allow those programs to continue at rates consistent with
the authorizing legislation.
Direct Federal construction of long-term projects will be confined to
those for which appropriations have already been made. Short-term
projects such as provision of national park facilities, forest roads and
trails, and institutional facilities will be limited to those of an urgent
character.
The Budget contemplates the construction at a conservative rate
of all projects for flood control, navigation, and reclamation for which
initial appropriations were made in prior years. It does not provide
initial appropriations for any new projects under these three programs.
Even so, expenditures will be greater in the fiscal year 1949 than
in 1948.
This upward trend in public construction deserves careful consideration by the Congress.
FEDERAL CIVILIAN PERSONNEL

This Budget reflects the continuing decline in Federal civilian employment. Federal agencies have reduced their civilian personnel to
2,300,000—including those in the Territories and possessions and in
foreign countries—from a wartime peak of 3,770,000 in June 1945.
The Budget estimates contemplate further reductions.
Total civilian personnel of the War and Navy Departments is far
below the wartime peak. Personnel, in the emergency war agencies
has been cut drastically except in the War Assets Administration,
which is at the height of its work.
Three agencies—the Veterans' Administration, the Post Office,
and the Treasury—together have almost as many employees as the
1939 total of 900,000 for the whole Federal Government. Personnel

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

requirements of the Veterans' Administration are large because it
must administer a great variety of programs for millions of veterans.
The rise in the number of postal employees reflects the growth of the
population and the even larger increase of business and industry.
Increased employment in the Treasury results mainly from the greater
complexity and coverage of the tax system and the wide distribution
of public-debt ownership.
Total employment in all the other Government departments and
agencies combined is lower than in June 1945 even though certain
functions of emergency war agencies have been returned to the peacetime agencies from which they were transferred and other permanent
functions have been added.
The personnel reductions were facilitated by the statutory limitations on personnel and provisions, for detailed personnel ceiling determinations enacted by the Seventy-ninth Congress. When we began
to convert to a peacetime basis and appropriations greatly exceeded
expenditures, this legislation served a useful purpose. By the Legislative Reorganization Act the Congress has in effect decided that the
extent of Federal activities, and hence personnel, should be determined
by the usual appropriations process. The statutory limitations and
personnel ceilings constitute a separate and possibly conflicting method
of controlling the number of employees. The appropriations process,
to my mind, is far preferable to the personnel ceilings and limitations,
since these place undue emphasis upon the number of employees and
put a premium on contractual arrangements and other measures to get
the necessary work done without exceeding numerical limitations.
I therefore recommend the repeal of the statutory limitations on
personnel and provisions for personnel ceiling determinations.
GOVERNMENT CORPORATIONS

With the termination of wartime programs, net expenditures of
corporations in the fiscal year 1948 will be focused in a few major
areas—chiefly purchase of veterans' housing mortgages, loans to
finance rural electrification/ price-support outlays for farm commodities, and disbursements on Export-Import Bank loans to foreign
borrowers. These programs represent, in the main, capital items
recoverable over a period of years. As long as high levels of business
activity continue, disbursements in all other major areas will be held
to low levels and will be partly or wholly offset by receipts.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

In the fiscal year 1948 net expenditures from corporation accounts
alone will amount to 829 million dollars, compared with net receipts
of 175 million dollars in 1947. But if we take into account reduced
payments by the Treasury to the corporations and increased repayment of capital funds to the Treasury by the corporations, net withdrawals from the Treasury for these programs will remain almost
unchanged, despite the sharp shift in the methods of financing them.
This is explained in detail in the summary narrative for part III.
At present certain wholly owned Government corporations have
authority to issue obligations whose principal and interest are guaranteed by the Federal Government. During the war the Treasury,
because of its tremendous public debt operations, requested the corporations to obtain their funds directly from it rather than issue obligations on the market. I now recommend that the authority of
Government corporations to issue guaranteed obligations to the public
be repealed and that such agencies be authorized to obtain their funds
solely by borrowing from the Secretary of the Treasury.
During the war, the Treasury has been advancing funds to the
corporations at an interest rate of 1 percent. This low rate was based
in part on the general level of interest rates in the market and in part
on the fact that a large proportion of corporation activities—like subsidies and preclusive buying—was non-income-producing.
From now on most corporation programs will be revenue-producing.
Accordingly, I recommend that corporations be required to reimburse
the Treasury for the full cost to it of money advanced to the corporations. Interest paid on borrowings from the Treasury should
be based upon the current average rate on outstanding marketable
obligations of the United States—now about 1.8 percent. Dividends
should be paid on capital stock, if earned. While these changes in
the amount of intragovernmental transactions will not affect the
Budget deficit or surplus, they will cause the corporations' records to
reflect more nearly the true costs of their operations.
I recommend that the statutory authority of the Eeconstruction
Finance Corporation be extended beyond the present expiration date
of June 30, 1947. Such extension is assumed in the expenditure
estimates in this Budget. The new charter to be submitted will
provide for the repeal of all powers not required for peacetime activities. It will also provide for a reduction of 2.5 billion dollars in the
Corporation's borrowing authority. With the receipts anticipated
from liquidation of war activities the reduced authority should prove
adequate.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

I have already recommended extension of the authority of the U. S.
Commercial Company and reduction in the borrowing authority of the
Federal Farm Mortgage Corporation.
In this Budget, I am also recommending return of capital to the
Treasury by certain mixed-ownership corporations. The Federal
land banks will complete retirement of Government-owned capital
stock during the fiscal year 1947. In the fiscal year 1948, it appears
that they can repay the outstanding paid-in surplus of 37 million
dollars. These transactions will return the land banks to the status
of cooperative institutions owned by the farmers they serve. In
addition, I recommend a further small retirement of the capital stock
of the Federal home loan banks.
The Corporation Supplement to the 1947 Budget indicated that
the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation could soon begin to
retire its capital stock. The continuing rapid growth in the Corporation's resources and the exceptionally strong position of the
insured banks now make it possible to propose a substantial amount
of capital redemption in the fiscal year 1948. Accordingly, I recommend that the Congress authorize the Corporation to repay all of
the 139 million dollars of capital furnished by the Federal Reserve
System. Since the Reserve banks have already replaced these funds
from earnings in recent years, the Board of Governors of the Federal
Reserve System has proposed that the Congress at the same time
authorize the payment to the Treasury of the 139 million dollars. I
also recommend that the Congress authorize the Corporation to
repay 100 million dollars of the 150 million dollars furnished by the
Treasury Department.
By the close of the fiscal year 1948, after these repayments, the
Corporation will still have capital surplus and reserves of about 1
billion dollars—the objective set several years ago.
The Board of Governors has made a further recommendation, in
which I also concur, that the Congress repeal the existing, largely
dormant, authority of the Federal Reserve banks to make direct loans
to industry, releasing to the Treasury the funds reserved for this
purpose. The gold increment fund now includes 112 million dollars
reserved for such loans, and an added 28 million dollars has been
advanced to the Federal Reserve banks. These sums will be transferred to miscellaneous receipts.
These transfers from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation,
the Federal Reserve banks, and the gold increment fund will add a
total of 379 million dollars in miscellaneous receipts in the fiscal year
1948.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

The Government Corporation Control Act requires that no wholly
owned Government corporation not now possessing a Federal charter
shall continue after June 30, 1948, unless reincorporated before that
time by act of Congress. Of the 16 such corporations in operation
when the act was approved, the following six are already in process
of liquidation: Defense Homes Corporation, Federal Surplus Commodities Corporation, Inter-American Navigation Corporation, Institute of Inter-American Transportation, Prenciiiradio, and the U. S.
Spruce Production Corporation.
This Budget recommends the liquidation of five other Statechartered corporations: Inter-American Educational Foundation,
The RFC Mortgage Company, Rubber Development Corporation,
Tennessee Valley Associated Cooperatives, and the Warrior River
Terminal Company. The residual functions of the Rubber Development Corporation and the program of The RFC Mortgage Company
will be assumed by their parent corporation, the Reconstruction
Finance Corporation. The Warrior River Terminal Company will
be absorbed by the Inland Waterways Corporation, of which it is
now a subsidiary.
This Budget also recommends that three nonfederally chartered
corporations be reincorporated by act of Congress: Commodity Credit
Corporation, Export-Import Bank of Washington, and the Virgin
Islands Company. The act establishing the Commodity Credit
Corporation as an agency of the United States expires in June. It,
therefore, needs early consideration.
Recommendations on the Panama Railroad Company and the
Institute of Inter-American Affairs have necessarily been postponed.
The Department of State is reviewing the program of the Institute
and a recommendation regarding its future status will be forthcoming
soon.
Activities of the Panama Railroad Company have become closely
interwoven with those of The Panama Canal in the 42 years since
the Government purchased this Company. While its major functions
obviously must be continued, a careful reexamination and reappraisal
of the respective roles of the Company and The Panama Canal are
required. As soon as studies are completed, my recommendations
will be transmitted to the Congress.
In addition to examination of the nonfederally chartered corporations, studies are under way, in accordance with the provisions of
section 107 of the Government Corporation Control Act, regarding
those corporations whose fiscal affairs could be handled more appro-

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

M61

priately in the same manner as those of regular Federal agencies.
These and future studies will be useful, not only in developing recommendations concerning specific corporations, but also in establishing
a consistent pattern for use of Government corporations.
While the general role of the Government corporation has been
accepted in the laws of this country for more than 30 years, the standards for use of this instrument are not fully developed and will be
subject to many refinements. Experience indicates that the corporate
form of organization is peculiarly adapted to the administration of
governmental programs which are predominantly of a commercial
character—those which are revenue producing, are at least potentially
self-sustaining, and involve a large number of business-type transactions with the public.
In their business operations such programs require greater flexibility
than the customary type of appropriation budget ordinarily permits.As a rule the usefulness of a corporation lies in its ability to deal with
the public in the manner employed by private business for similar
work. Necessary controls are or can be provided under the Government Corporation Control Act. Further study may well indicate not
only that some existing corporations ought to be converted into agencies, but also that some existing agencies might administer their
programs more effectively if they had some or all of the attributes of
corporations.

reflected in the accounts of the Treasurer; consequently,

such transactions are relatively small in amount.

receipts and expenditures are included in the transactions
of general and special accounts.

Government corporations, including complete information regarding their income and expenses and their
financial condition, appear in part III of the Budget.
Trust accounts.—In general, trust accounts relate to
moneys received by the Government for the special
benefit of individuals or classes of individuals and moneys
transferred from general and special accounts. Such
moneys are held in trust for beneficiaries, and hence are
not available for general expenditure. Net accumulations in trust funds are, for the most part, invested in
obligations of the United States Government.

of the postal system. They are credited with receipts

has been explained above.
APPROPRIATIONS AND OTHER AUTHORIZATIONS

Appropriations.—Appropriations authorize the employment of personnel, the purchase of supplies and
equipment, the awarding of contracts, and the withdrawal of funds from the Treasury for these and other
specified purposes. They are of two general types, annual and permanent. An annual appropriation is one
which is made by current action of Congress, usually once
a year. A permanent appropriation is automatically
renewed each year, pursuant to prior legislative enactment, without new action by Congress.
Appropriations may be either definite or indefinite in
amount. A definite appropriation is one the amount of
which is stated in the appropriation act as a specific sum
of money. An indefinite appropriation is one the amount
of which is not stated in the appropriation act as a specific
sum of money, but is determinate at some future date;
e. g., an appropriation based on certain financial requirements such as the interest on the public debt. Most
special account and trust account appropriations are in
the permanent-indefinite category. Indefinite appropriations for fiscal year 1947 are estimated, since the
amounts involved cannot be definitely determined until
after the close of the fiscal year on June 30, 1947.
Appropriations may be available for obligation for a
definite or indefinite period of time. Most appropriations
are only available for obligation during a single fiscal year,
but some appropriations are available for obligation for a
longer period of years. Appropriations for construction
are generally available for incurring obligations for an
indefinite period of time until the project covered by the
appropriation is completed or terminated.
Appropriations from postal accounts are summarized
in table 6 which is supported by detailed estimates in part
II of the Budget.
There is generally a difference—sometimes a great
difference—between the amounts of appropriations and
expenditures of general and special accounts for any one
fiscal year, due to the time lag between the enactment of
an appropriation, the incurring of obligations thereunder,
and the subsequent expenditures. Appropriations for a
given year are based upon the estimated amount of obligations to be incurred in that year, some of which will be
liquidated during subsequent years, whereas expenditures
indicate the amount of cash actually disbursed during the
fiscal period. Some of the 1948 expenditures, for example,
will be used to pay off obligations incurred in 1948, but
other 1948 expenditures will liquidate obligations carried
forward from fiscal years 1946 and 1947 or even earlier
years, particularly when contract authorizations have been
employed for long-range procurement or construction
programs. On the other hand, some of the obligations
incurred in fiscal year 1948 will not result in cash expenditures until fiscal year 1949 or 1950 or some succeeding year.
Reappropriations.—Reappropriations of unobligated balances of appropriations continue the availability of unused
720000—47

VII




A3

balances of appropriations which would otherwise expire.
Prior to the war, reappropriations were relatively small in
amount. During the war, large reappropriations were
enacted principally for the War Department and the
defense aid (lend-lease) program. Further use of reappropriations is forbidden by the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946, except for public works on which
work has commenced. Information regarding reappropriations is shown in table 11.
Contract authorizations.—A contract authorization is a
statutory authorization by Congress—generally in an
appropriation act—empowering the designated agency to
enter into contracts and incur obligations for a stated
purpose prior to enactment of an appropriation. A contract authorization, however, does not authorize the payment of the bills arising from the obligations incurred.
In order to pay these bills, an appropriation to liquidate
the contract authorizations must first be enacted by
Congress. Such appropriations to liquidate contract
authorizations are included under general and special
account appropriations.
Contract authorizations for the naval expansion program are based on tonnage and are indefinite in amount.
The financial significance of the indefinite contract author*
izations included in this section must therefore be estimated. As the program progresses and unit costs change,
the estimates are revised accordingly.
The use of contract authorizations is expanded in the
1948 Budget because of the requirements of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946. The appropriations in
the Budget are mainly to cover obligations to be paid
during fiscal year 1948. The areas which lend themselves
most readily to the use of contract authorizations are
long-range procurement programs, activities requiring advance planning, and activities requiring years to complete.
Thus contract authorizations become another control in
these activities. They permit long-range planning and
procurement, a n d t h e annual appropriations thereunder
permit annual review by the President and Congress and
some flexibility in the timing of work to be done.
Limitations on Government corporation expenses.—Congress has placed limitations upon the amount which certain Government corporations may use from their own
funds for administrative expenses and for advances to
Farmers' Home Administration and Rural Electrification
Administration. Such limitations are summarized in
table 6 and itemized in table 15.
Authorizations treated as public debt transactions.—Congress has authorized the Treasury to provide the new funds
for the International Monetary Fund, the International
Bank for Reconstruction and Development, and the
Export-Import Bank by the issuance of Government securities. Such authorizations appear in table 6. The portion of the United States subscription to the International
Monetary Fund financed from the Exchange Stabilization
Fund established under the Gold Reserve Act of 1934 is
excluded from the table, but the proposed line of credit
to be extended to the United Kingdom is included.
Rescissions of appropriations and contract authorizations.—Congress has directed the President through the
Bureau of the Budget to maintain a continuous study of
appropriations and contract authorizations made for
national defense and war purposes and to recommend the
rescission of such funds no longer required for the purposes
for which they were granted. No rescissions have been
recommended as yet for 1947. Such recommendations
will be transmitted to Congress in January as requested
by Congress.

Net appropriation to Federal old-age and survivors insurance trust fund is excluded from employment taxes, but included as trust account receipt.
Represents payments to the International Monetary Fund.

To judge the effect of the Federal finances on inflation,
and for other related purposes, it is desirable to compare
the collection of cash from the public by the Federal
Government with cash payments to the public. The
table on "Receipts from and payments to the public''
indicates the actual flow of money between the Federal
Government and the public. The public is defined to
include individuals, private corporations, State, local, and
foreign governments, and international organizations. To
show actual receipts from and payments to the public,
transactions of the general and special accounts, corporations, trust accounts, and exchange stabilization fund
must be consolidated and noncash transactions must be
excluded. The consolidation eliminates transactions be-




tween and among Government accounts. These transactions affect receipts and expenditures in the same
amount and thus do not affect the Treasury cash balance
or the public debt. Noncash expenditures include such
items as interest due on savings bonds held by the public
which will not be paid until the bonds are redeemed; subscriptions to the International Monetary Fund in the form
of non-interest-bearing notes, which will later be exchanged
for cash; and terminal-leave pay in interest-bearing bonds,
which will be redeemed in cash at a later date.
In the fiscal year 1947, although there will be a budget
deficit, all Federal accounts consolidated are expected to
take in about 3.9 billion dollars more cash than is paid out.
In the fiscal year 1948, the excess of cash receipts over

SUMMARY AND SUPPORTING TABLES

payments will amount to about 3.2 billion dollars. This
figure, however, reflects the increase in employment taxes
from 2 to 5 percent scheduled under present law to become
effective on January 1, 1948. This change in tax rates
will increase anticipated receipts during the fiscal year
1948 by about 600 million dollars. Further, the figures
reflect no allowance for payment of dividends out of the
National Service Life Insurance trust fund. If employment tax rates are not increased, and to the extent that
dividends are paid during the fiscal year 1948, the excess
of cash receipts will be correspondingly reduced. A recession, which would reduce tax revenues and would require
increased payments from the unemployment compensation trust fund, for veterans' readjustment benefits, and
for certain other purposes, would also adversely affect the
balance between cash receipts and payments.
No estimate of redemption by the International Monetary Fund of non-interest-bearing notes is included in
cash payments, since no estimate is available.
Receipts from the public are shown under the accounts
to which the collections from the public are deposited
except in one case, namely, the net appropriations from
the general and special account receipts to the Federal
old-age and survivors insurance trust fund are treated as
trust account receipts and therefore are excluded from




A129

"Employment taxes/' Payments to the public are shown
in this presentation under the accounts from which the
disbursements to the public are made. Hence, payments
to the public from the general and special, corporation, and
trust accounts cannot properly be compared with the sum
of receipts from the public for the same accounts because
of the elimination of transfers between these accounts.
For example, part of the amounts transferred from general
and special accounts to trust accounts is held in trust for
payment to the public in future years and part is paid out
to the public currently but shown in the table under trust
account payments instead of under general and special
and corporation account payments. Continued operations of insurance, retirement, and other trust funds on a
reserve basis require that receipts from the public appropriated and transferred to such funds exceed payments
from the funds to the public for some years to come.
Since Government corporations are treated as an
integral part of the Federal Government, sales and
redemptions of corporation obligations on the market are
combined with other Federal debt transactions to arrive
at net borrowing from or repayment of debt to the public.
A supporting schedule, showing detailed adjustments
made to the Budget figures in preparing this table, will
be furnished on request by the Bureau of the Budget.

INTRODUCTION TO PART II
Part II consists of the official estimates of appropriation recommended by the President in the form of proposed language of
appropriations, together with supporting schedules. The detailed
schedules for each appropriation title give data on a comparative
basis for fiscal years 1946 and 1947 in addition to information for
thefiscalyear 1948. In order to make the data for 1947 more nearly
comparable to 1948, the appropriate sums which it is estimated will
be required as supplemental appropriations for 1947 are included in
those instances where the need for additional funds is definitely
known and the amounts can be determined with reasonable accuracy. The great majority of these supplemental are due to
legislation, such as the Federal Employees Pay Act of 1946 for
which no provision was made in the regular appropriations for 1947.
Excluded from part II are supplemental appropriations probably
required where the amount cannot be estimated accurately at this
time, and appropriations to carry out new legislation or extension

of existing legislation which will otherwise expire. (One-line tentative estimates for such items generally appear in table 6 of pt. I.)
The contents of part II are arranged in chapters, each one usually
covering an executive department or a major agency. The Executive Office of the President and various independent establishments
are placed within a single chapter. Estimates of the Legislative
and Judicial branches are also in separate chapters.
Each chapter begins with a summary table which compares the
amounts of appropriations and contract authorizations estimated
for 1948 with the 1947 figures, including certain estimated supplemental appropriations as explained above. This table is followed
by an explanatory statement, describing briefly the functions and
programs provided for in the budget estimates. The remaining
portion of each chapter consists of the proposed appropriation
language and supporting schedules. They are explained in the
following illustration:

Comparative Summary of Appropriations and Appropriation Estimates
[Appropriations for 1947 did not make provision for certain legislation enacted in the latter part of the last regular session, nor for certain unforeseen costs arising since that time due
to circumstances virtually beyond administrative control. To the extent that such expenses cannot be absorbed within presently available funds, supplemental appropriations
will be required. The latest estimates of amounts so required are shown in the detail schedules for the various appropriation titles and in a separate column of the table below]

THE JUDICIARY
Comparative Summary of Appropriations and Appropriation Estimates
[Appropriations for 1947 did not make provision for certain legislation enacted in the latter part of the last regular session, nor for certain unforeseen costs arising since that time due
to circumstances virtually beyond administrative control. To the extent that such expenses cannot be absorbed within presently available funds, supplemental appropriations
will be required. The latest estimates of amounts so required are shown in the detail schedules for the various appropriation titles and in a separate column of the table below]

EXPLANATORY STATEMENT
GENERAL STATEMENT

Appropriations for The Judiciary provide funds for
operation of all Federal courts, including the payment of
salaries of justices, judges, officers, and employees, and
miscellaneous expenses. In addition, provision is made for
the activities of such judicial officers and employees as
United States commissioners, conciliation commissioners,
and probation officers, and for the Administrative Office
of the United States Courts.
Estimates for the fiscal year 1948 reflect additional
sums which will be required for an anticipated increase in
criminal prosecutions during that year.
In accordance with law, estimates for The Judiciary are
included in the Budget without revision, in the amounts
approved by the Conference of Senior Circuit Judges,
except that estimates for the Supreme Court and the three
lower courts having special jurisdiction in claims, customs,
and patents litigation are included in the amounts approved by the respective courts.
UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT

The increase reflected in the estimates for the Supreme
Court results from provision for additional law clerks for
justices and other additional personnel for the Court, as

well as amounts for statutory pay increases not effective
during all of the current year.
OTHER FEDERAL COURTS

The increases under this heading include $348,600 for
repairs and improvements to the Court of Claims building, $278,798 for salaries of additional judges, probation
officers, and other judicial officers and assistants, $277,202
for increases required by pay legislation, and smaller
amounts for increased commodity and other costs.
ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICE OF THE UNITED STATES COURTS

This Office, established by act of Congress approved
August 7, 1939, is responsible to the Judicial Conference
of Senior Circuit Judges for the performance of administrative services to The Judiciary, the preparation and
reporting of statistical data relating to the activities of
the courts, and similar matters. The increase reflected
in the 1948 estimates for the Administrative Office is to
permit resumption of certain functions curtailed during
the war years, and to provide for expanded services to the
courts under the authority of legislation enacted during
the past several years.

Comparative Summary of Appropriations and Appropriation Estimates
[Appropriations for 1947 did not make provision for certain legislation enacted in the latter part of the last regular session, nor for certain unforeseen costs arising since that time due
to circumstances virtually beyond administrative control. To the extent that such expenses cannot be absorbed within presently available funds, supplemental appropriations
will be required. The latest estimates of amounts so required are shown in the detail schedules for the various appropriation titles and in a separate column of the table below]

nel of the agency was reduced rapidly in the fall of 1946.
The Highway Transport Department was completely
liquidated and the forces of other .departments were
materially reduced.
During 1947 the agency met the emergency transportation needs arising from the boxcar shortage, strikes, and
shortages of material. Much of the work in this connection was performed by the Interstate Commerce Commission on a reimbursable basis. It is planned that the
agency's principal business will be terminated by April
30, 1947, with a small staff being retained to the close of
the fiscal year to continue necessary car service operations.
No estimate for the fiscal year 1948 is submitted.
OFFICE OF SCIENTIFIC KESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

The Office of Scientific Research and Development was
established on June 28, 1941, as an emergency war agency
for scientific and medical research. The estimated appropriation of $623,800 for the fiscal year 1947 was necessary to meet the administrative expenses of liquidating
the agency's wartime activities and effecting final settlement of research contracts with academic and industrial
institutions which were terminated shortly after the
cessation of hostilities.
Since it is contemplated that this liquidation program
will be completed by the end of the fiscal year 1947, no
estimate of appropriation for the agency is included in
the 1948 Budget.
OFFICE OF TEMPORARY CONTROLS

The Office of Temporary Controls was created on
December 12, 1946, by Executive Order No. 9809 which
consolidated the Office of War Mobilization and Reconversion, the Office of Price Administration, the Civilian
Production Administration, and the Office of Economic
Stabilization. It is expected that this consolidation will
result in economies in operation, and in a more rapid
liquidation of programs, personnel, property, and records.
The Office is responsible for carrying out the remaining
responsibilities of the Office of Price Administration and
the Civilian Production Administration, and certain
activities of the Office of War Mobilization and Reconversion. Unless extended by Congress, the priorities
powers under which the Civilian Production Administration operated will expire March 31, 1947, except for those
'over building materials which expire on June 30, 1947.
The principal Office of Price Administration programs
which continue by law are sugar rationing and rent
control. Statutory authority for sugar rationing will
expire on March 31, 1947, and for rent control on June 30,
1947.
The functions of the Office of Economic Stabilization
already have been largely terminated as a result of decontrol of prices and wages and elimination of most items from
rationing. The statute under which the Office of War
Mobilization and Reconversion operated expires June 30,
1947. Until that date most residual functions will be
carried on by the Office of Temporary Controls.
No estimate for 1948 for the Office of Temporary Controls is included in this chapter but is included elsewhere
in this Budget within the amount estimated for extension
of legislation.
PHILIPPINE ALIEN PROPERTY ADMINISTRATION

The Philippine Alien Property Administration was
created by Executive Order 9789 of October 14, 1946,




pursuant to the Trading with the Enemy Act, as amended,
and the Philippine Property Act of 1946 (60 Stat. 418).
The order transfers to the Philippine Alien Property
Administrator, with respect to property located in the
Philippines, all authority, rights, privileges, powers, duties,
and functions vested in the former Office of Alien Property
Custodian, or transferred or delegated thereto. The primary objective of the agency is to complete the vesting
program in the Philippines prior to transfer of all Philippine alien property activities to the Government of the
Philippines. These activities require no appropriation
but are financed from the Administration's own funds
under congressional limitation*
WAR

ADMINISTRATION

The War Assets Administration was established by
Executive Order 9689' on March 25, 1946, succeeding to
the policy-making functions of the Surplus Property
Administration and to the operating functions of the War
Assets Corporation and Smaller War Plants Corporation*
The same order vested all functions relating to disposal
of surpluses outside the United States, its Territories, and
possessions in the Department of State. Under Public
Law 181, Seventy-ninth Congress, the Surplus Property
Administration had succeeded to the functions of the
Surplus Property Board created by the Surplus Property
Act of 1944.
The War Assets Administration is charged with the
care, handling, and disposition of domestic surplus property, and is empowered by the act to prescribe regulations
effectuating its provisions. Under authority conferred
by the act^Il [Governmentfagencies"have been designated to assist in the disposal of surplus property* However, more than 95 percent of the property available for
disposal is carried in War Assets Administration inventories.
Among the 20 statutory objectives governing the disposal of surplus property are the following: (a) to promote
reestablishment of a peacetime economy of free private
enterprise; (b) to strengthen and preserve the competitive
position of small business; (c) to establish returning
veterans in agriculture, business^ and the professions;
(d) to dispose of surpluses rapidly without fostering
monopoly; (e) to obtain fair value for the Government.
In making disposals of personal property the Administration is required by the act to afford purchasing priorities in the following order to: the Federal Government,
veterans, small business, State and local governments,
and nonprofit institutions. In addition, a number of surplus items especially desired by veterans are designated by
the Administrator and set aside for exclusive sale to them.
The act provides also for discounting the sale or lease
value of property disposed of to health and educational
institutions, to the extent of benefits thereby accruing to
the United States, and for the donation to such institutions of any property having no commercial value or
entailing care and handling expenses greater than estimated proceeds. The priority and preference provisions
of the act have retarded the disposal of surplus property
and constitute a substantial cost factor in the operations
of the agency, while the discount and donation programs
result in reduced cash recoveries by the Government on
its original investment in such properties.
During the fiscal year 1947 the disposal activity will
pass the peak, both in terms of all-time inventories and
monthly volume of sales. This does not mean, however,
that fiscal year 1948 will be merely $ clean-up year. Large

EXECUTIVE OFFICE AND INDEPENDENT OFFICES
stocks of the less desirable and long supply items will be
carried over, to be offered on a market where the demand
for surpluses will markedly diminish. This condition
will apply particularly to the disposal of plants, where an
increasingly greater proportion of the inventory on hand
will consist of special-purpose installations not readily
convertible to peacetime uses.
To offset adverse marketing factors, greater use will be
made in 1948 of summary disposal methods, including
competitive bids and negotiated sales. Pricing policy
will undergo continuous scrutiny. Scrap actions will be
stepped up and export outlets exploited. Nevertheless,
the rate of recovery on the Government's original investment in surplus property will decline, while over-all disposal costs in relation to proceeds will rise above current
levels
The $327,500,000 estimate for 1948 is $230,500,000 less
than the estimated appropriation for 1947. This decrease is attributable primarily to a smaller volume of disposals and a lower level of inventories on hand, and to the
unification and simplification of disposal and administrative methods,
OFFICE OF GOVERNMENT REPORTS

The Office of Government Reports was established in
the Executive Office of the President pursuant to the provisions of Reorganization Plan I of 1939. Appropriations were authorized and the functions of the Office outlined by the Congress in the following year (3 U. S. C. 54).
Certain functions of the Office of Government Reports
were subsequently absorbed by the Office of War Information. This Office was terminated on August 31, 1945, by
Executive Order 9608. Its special services were transferred to the Bureau of the Budget. These services
provide a centralized newspaper clipping service for
officials of both the executive and legislative branches;
maintain a correspondence service handling public inquiries; revise the U. S. Government Manual, containing
a statement of the organization and functions of the Government agencies together with their principal officials;
and prepare news digests for the information of the President and his staff.
By Executive Order 9809, of December 12, 1946, applicable provisions of prior Executive orders were repealed
and these services were transferred from the Bureau of
the Budget to the reestablished Office of Government
Reports. The order also transferred to the Office the Motion Picture and Media Programing Divisions of the Office
of War Mobilization and Reconversion which had been
established at the request of the advertising and motionpicture industries as a liaison point between the Government and the industries.
The functions transferred to the Office of Government
Reports had available appropriations aggregating $583,750,
for fiscal year 1947. The recommendation for fiscal year
1948 contemplates the same level of activity as in the
current year.
FUNDS APPROPRIATED TO THE PRESIDENT
ARMED FORCES LEAVE PAYMENTS

The appropriation "Payments under the Armed Forces
Leave Act of 1946" for the fiscal year 1947 in the amount
of $2,431,708,000 provides for payments for unused leave
credits, in cash and in bonds, to enlisted men of the Army,
Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard who were dis-




41

charged prior to September 1, 1946, and payments to
officers and enlisted men in the armed forces on September
1, 1946, for unused accumulated leave in excess of 60 days
but not exceeding 120 days, and administrative expenses
in connection with making such payments. The bonds
issued will mature 5 years from the date of discharge and
bear interest at the rate of 2){ percent. No amounts are
included for these purposes in the estimates for the fiscal
year 1948.
DEFENSE AID—LEND-LEASE

It is anticipated that the liquidation of the vast procurement activities carried out under this appropriation will be
completed during fiscal year 1947. During fiscal year 1948
and for a number of years thereafter the remaining lendlease task will consist of the implementation of the several
settlement and "pipe-line" agreements. Foreign governments have agreed to pay the United States over one
billion dollars over a period of 30 years; they have also
agreed to certain conditions regarding the use and disposition of lend-lease goods. As in the case of all international agreements, the State Department will have responsibility for seeing the terms of these agreements carried
out and also that the agreed periodic repayments on the
various credits are made.
The original Lend-Lease Act, approved on March 11,
1941, was enacted "to promote the defense of the United
States, and for other purposes." Under this act the
President was authorized, when he deemed it to be in the
interest of the national defense, to sell, transfer title to,
exchange, lease, lend, or otherwise dispose of articles, information, or services to any country whose defense the
President deemed vital to the defense of the United States.
On April 18, 1945, the act was extended to June 30, 1949,
for purposes of carrying out agreements with foreign governments entered into prior to June 30, 1946. The agreements for the delivery of the remaining "pipe-line" goods
to foreign recipients were all executed prior to June 30,
1946, and deliveries will be completed during fiscal year
1947.
To enable the President to carry out the provisions of
this act, there has been available direct appropriations to
the President totaling approximately 30.7 billion dollars.
Of this amount 385 million dollars has been transferred
to United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration and 500 million dollars has been transferred to the
Department of Agriculture for the postwar price support
of agricultural commodities. In addition to these appropriations, the Congress authorized the President to transfer certain articles and services purchased directly by the
War and Navy Departments, and to lease vessels procured out of appropriations made to the Navy Department and the United States Maritime Commission.
Following the surrender of Japan the President's authority for making lend-lease settlements was transferred
to the Secretary of State. The remaining operations
under the act were continued by such other principal
Federal agencies as the Treasury Department, the War
Department, the Navy Department, the Department of
Agriculture, the War Shipping Administration, and the
United States Maritime Commission.
No obligating authority is requested for fiscal year 1948
nor is any further appropriation under this title required.
OVERTIME, LEAVE, AND HOLIDAY COMPENSATION

This appropriation was made to enable the President
through the departments and agencies concerned to pay

42

claims for overtime, leave, and holiday compensation at
night rates as certified under the provisions of the act of
July 31, 1946 (Public Law 575). These claims developed
following a ruling of the Comptroller General.
INDEPENDENT OFFICES
AMERICAN BATTLE MONUMENTS COMMISSION

The American Battle Monuments Commission maintains and operates 8 national cemeteries and 12 memorials
in France and Belgium, commemorating the services of
American Expeditionary Forces during the First World
War, and has been given responsibility for the planning
of World War II permanent cemeteries and memorials.
Appropriations for 1947 provided for part of the repair
and rehabilitation of damage to and deterioration of
installations during World War II. The estimates for
1948 contemplate a small increase in the maintenance
force, a continuation of the repair and rehabilitation of
World War I properties, other than the completely destroyed Brest Naval Memorial, and surveys of each of
the three World War II theaters of war preparatory to
recommending sites for cemeteries and planning construction of memorials.
ATOMIC ENERGY COMMISSION

The Atomic Energy Commission was established by the
Atomic Energy Act of 1946, approved August 1, 1946.
The Commission operates within the framework of the
policy set forth by the act, which declares that, subject
to the paramount objective of assuring the common
defense and security, the development and use of atomic
energy shall, so far as practicable, be directed toward
improving the public welfare, increasing the standard of
living, strengthening free competition in private enterprise, and promoting world peace. The Commission is
made the exclusive owner of all fissionable materials and
of all facilities for the production of fissionable material.
To advise and assist the Commission, the act provides for
a general advisory committee appointed by the President,
and a military liaison committee with members assigned
by the Secretaries of War and the Navy.
In prior fiscal years, responsibility for the development
and application of atomic energy was vested in the Manhattan Engineer District, War Department, financed by
funds appropriated to that Department. In August 1946,
the President was authorized by Public Law 663 to allocate the unexpended balances of funds available to the
Manhattan Engineer District to such agencies as he might
determine. The President in December 1946 transferred
to the Commission the properties, contracts, and civilian
personnel of the Manhattan Engineer District. During
the remainder of the fiscal year 1947, the Commission's
activities will be financed from the funds thus allocated.
It is estimated that all funds allocated to the Commission
in fiscal year 1947 will be fully obligated in that year.
The nature of the Commission's activities is such that
certain contracts for services to be rendered to the agency
in the succeeding fiscal year must be negotiated in the
prior fiscal year. For this reason, the budget estimate for
the Commission for the fiscal year 1948 contains contract
authority in the amount of $250,000,000, in addition to
an appropriation of an equal amount to finance current
expenditures. The total amount of new obligational




authority for the Atomic Energy Commission in fiscal
year 1948 is $500,000,000.
CIVIL SERVICE COMMISSION

The Civil Service Commission recruits^ selects, and
certifies persons for employment in the executive branch
of the Government. Normally, selections are made as a
result of competitive examinations. During the war
years the Commission discontinued competitive examinations because of the urgency of filling a large number of
vacancies in a scarce labor market. Persons who were
appointed during this period received a war-service
indefinite appointment. A two-year program has been
formulated to replace war-service appointments with
permanent-status personnel by June 1948, and to reconvert from a wartime to a peacetime civil service. The
program will entail the examining and certifying of a
large number of persons who may wish to compete for
available positions. Persons holding war-service appointments who wish to be retained in their positions will be
required to compete with applicants from both within
and outside Government.
In converting from war conditions, the Commission has
considered it advisable to decentralize certain phases of
recruitment and placement activities to the agencies and
their field establishments. This broader decentralization
extends to the agencies a wider participation in the selection of their personnel. This function is accomplished
through committees and boards of examiners operating
under the control of the Civil Service Commission, who
are authorized to examine and select personnel for the
more technical positions peculiar to a particular agency
and for the mechanical and trade positions in the field
service. The members of the committees and boards are
appointed by and composed of employees of the establishments of the respective departments and agencies and
operate under the supervision of the Civil Service Commission in accordance with procedures and rules established by it. The selection of personnel involves, particularly with regard to applicants for the more
responsible Government positions, investigations of
character, loyalty, and suitability.
Through the promulgation of rules and regulations and
the issuance of standard procedures, the Commission to a
large extent provides direction to all Federal personnel
activities. It is responsible for the administration of the
Classification Act which requires that the duties and
responsibilities assigned Government positions be the
basis for equitable salary allocations. It adjudicates
appeals and prescribes a uniform performance rating
system.
Responsibility for the administration of the retirement
laws for Government employees, including the employees
of the Panama Canal and the Alaska Railroad, is vested in
the Commission. In addition, the Commission represents
the United States Government in fulfilling the Government's commitments as an employer under the provisions
of the Veterans' Preference Act of 1944.
The Commission during fiscal year 1948 will continue
to place emphasis on their program of conducting open
competitive examinations which will result in the replacement of war-service appointments by permanent-status
appointments. The decrease of $381,315 in the estimate
for general administrative expenses for 1948 from the
amount estimated for 1947 results primarily from anticipated decreases in administrative work connected with
retirement refunds for employees who may be separated

EXECUTIVE OFFICE AND INDEPENDENT OFFICES
3rior to 5 years of Federal service, and curtailment of
wartime need for a heavy recruitment and placement
program.
Appropriations are made annually toward the Governnent share of providing benefits to participants in the
retirement and disability funds provided by law for emDloyees of the Federal service. The appropriations and
contributions made by the participating employees profide the trust funds from which benefits are paid.
The 1948 estimate for retirement funds represents a net
ncrease of $23,408,000. This additional amount is made
ip of an increase of $23,900,000 in the estimated amount
•equired for the civil-service retirement and disability fund
-esulting in part from an increase in pay rates of Federal
employees under the Pay Act of 1946 and in part from an
ncrease in the Government's accrued liability in the fund;
md a decrease of $492,000 for the Panama Canal construction annuity fund.
FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION

The Federal Communications Commission regulates
nterstate and international communictions by wire and
:adio. It administers the Communications Act of 1934,
is amended; international treaties, conventions, conferences, and agreements relating to electric communications; and advises the State Department on the technical
ispects of international communications. The Comnission also handles technical matters for the Interlepartmental Radio Advisory Committee, which advises
bhe President on the assignment of frequencies for use by
jrovernment agencies.
The Commission's activities include regulation of radio
(broadcast, and safety and special services) and common
3arriers using radio or wire. Radio regulation requires
allocation of the radio spectrum among the many services
md licensing the use of frequencies, surveillance of transnissions to protect freedom from interference and to
secure compliance with the law, licensing of operators,
prescribing of engineering standards, and monitoring.
Common-carrier regulation applies to interstate and international tariffs, physical connections, through routes and
3harges, construction and abandonments, mergers, servce, and depreciation. Also included is jurisdiction over
miform accounting, valuation, and reporting of operations.
The remarkable wartime developments in the science of
electronics have had a tremendous influence on radio comnunications systems. Transmission is now practicable,
or example, over a range of 30,000,000 kilocycles, as cornered with a prewar range of approximately 300,000 kilocycles. As a consequence, the number of radio stations
n the established services is increasing more rapidly than
earlier forecasts could have predicted. At the same 1jme,
lew types of services are being established. In October
[946, there were more than 1,400 standard (AM) and 400
requency modulation (FM) broadcast stations in the
Jnited States and its Territories as compared with 950
\M and 50 FM stations in October 1945. Nearly 1,200
tation applications (668 AM, 525 FM) were pending
>efore the Commission in October 1946.
Among the newer services, television is undergoing a
imilar development while the increase is equally striking
n safety and special-service operations—police, fire, aircraft, ships, railroads, and others. In the 12 months to
)ctober 1946, stations on aircraft more than tripled. All
afety and special-service stations, excluding amateur, inTeased approximately 70 percent, with available evidence
ndicating a continuance of expansion in this field*




43

Common-carrier regulatory problems are currently
accentuated by the vast postwar reconstruction and
development programs of the Bell Telephone System and
Western Union Telegraph Company. Serious problems
exist, moreover, because of the public utility nature of
the carriers' operations. Western Union's representation
that its service could not be continued without an increase
in rates, coupled with evidence that such a change might
result in a substantial loss of business, has led the Commission to propose a general investigation into Western
Union's affairs with respect to its service, rates, and
charges.
The budget for the fiscal year 1948 is $7,300,000, an
increase of $1,063,052 over total estimated appropriations
for 1947. Of this 17 percent increase, $375,000, or over
one-third, represents the cost of the Western Union
investigation, a nonrecurring item. The $688,052 remainder will enable the Commission to cope with its
increased work load, which varies directly with industry
proposals to establish new services and with the number
of radio station applications. These considerations require continuous Commission action in reviewing allocations, preparing engineering and other standards for
station operation, and reviewing applicability and adequacy of international treaties and regulations. The
increase to carry on regular activities is after adjustments
for increased efficiency of operations achieved during the
current fiscal year and curtailment or elimination of
certain regulatory activities.
FEDERAL POWER COMMISSION

The Federal Power Commission administers the Federal Power Act of 1935 and the Natural Gas Act of 1938
and has certain duties under the provisions of several
other acts relating to Federal power developments such
as Tennessee Valley Authority Act, Bonneville Act, Fort
Peck Project Act, and the Flood-Control Acts. Its principal functions are as follows: (1) to license hydroelectric
power projects on navigable waters of the United States
and on United States Government lands; (2) to regulate
the rates charged by public utilities and natural gas companies engaged in the transmission and sale of electricity
and natural gas at wholesale in interstate commerce; (3)
to approve rates for sale of electric energy at the Bonneville, Fort Peck, Denison, and Norfork projects and future
reservoir projects under the control of the War Department; (4) to regulate the disposition, merger, and consolidation of facilities of public utilities and their acquisition and issuance of securities; (5) to regulate the interlocking directorates of public utilities; (6) to prescribe and
enforce uniform systems of accounts for licensees, electric
utilities, and natural gas companies and to encourage
sound depreciation and accounting practices; (7) to assist
State agencies on rate cases and other regulatory matters;
(8) to study the present and potential markets for electric
energy and the present and potential sources for its production; (9) to study the possibilities for future interconnection and coordination of electric power systems
throughout the country and to recommend to the utility
industry improvements in the interest of conservation of
energy resources and lowering the cost of energy to the
ultimate consumer; (10) to issue certificates of public convenience and necessity for the acquisition, construction,
extension, and operation or abandonment of natural gas
pipe lines and facilities for the transportation or sale of
natural gas in interstate commerce; (11) to determine service areas for natural gas companies; (12) to report to Coil-

THE BUDGET FOR FISCAL YEAR 1948

gress on proposed and existing compacts between States
relating to the conservation and use of natural gas; (13)
to gather, analyze, and publish basic financial and engineering data concerning electric utilities and natural gas
companies; (14) to make cooperative studies of river basins
in the interest of conservation and utilization of waterpower resources and to make the results of such studies
available to the War Department, Department of the Interior, and other Federal, State, and private agencies concerned; (15) to study flood-control projects proposed by
the War Department and to recommend facilities for the
development of hydroelectric power in connection therewith; and (16) after consulting with the Secretaries of War
and State, to recommend to the President appropriate
action on applications for permits to construct, operate,
maintain, or connect facilities for the exportation of electric
energy and the exportation or importation of natural gas.
The estimate for the fiscal year 1948, aggregating
$4,259,700, constitutes an increase of $487,300 over the
estimated 1947 appropriations. The increase is reflected
mainly in additional requirements as a consequence of the
Administrative Procedures Act and additional work for
licensing hydroelectric projects, rate regulation, certificates of convenience and necessity, river basin surveys,
power requirements and supply, corporation regulation,
and gathering and analysis of basic data.

ceeded against simultaneously. The industry-wide approach permits the Commission to eliminate the inequities
that were inherent in the former individual case method.
The Commission now places greater emphasis on the
elimination of unfair trade practices through cooperative
means. In those instances where circumstances permit,
industry members are given an opportunity to eliminate
unfair methods of competition through stipulation agreements to cease and desist or through the establishment of
trade practice rules. Heretofore trade practice conferences were held only when the Commission received a
request for rules from an industry. These conferences
are now initiated by the Commission where this method of
eliminating unfair trade practices appears appropriate.
This action by the Commission permits more prompt,
equitable, and economic settlement of the issues involved
than is otherwise possible.
The remaining increase of $275,000 is to provide for the
participation by the Commission in a coordinated Federal
program for the collection and compilation of business
financial statistics. The Federal Trade Commission and
the Securities and Exchange Commission will collaborate
in carrying out the Federal program relating to business
financial statistics. When compiled, these statistics will
be made available to other Government agencies and to
the public.

FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION

GENERAL ACCOUNTING OFFICE

The Federal Trade Commission is charged with the
responsibility of administering acts which are designed to
accomplish the following purposes: (1) To promote free
and fair competition in interstate trade in the interest of
the public through prevention of price-fixing agreements,
boycotts, combinations in restraint of trade, unlawful
price discriminations, and other unfair methods of competition and unfair and deceptive acts and practices; (2) to
safeguard life and health of the consuming public by preventing the dissemination of false and fraudulent advertisements of food, drugs, cosmetics, and devices which
may be injurious to health; (3) to protect producers,
manufacturers, distributors, and consumers from unrevealed presence of substitutes and mixtures in manufactured wool products; (4) to supervise the registration and
operation of associations of American exporters engaged
solely in export trade; and (5) to gather and make available to the President, the Congress, and the public, factual
data concerning economic and business conditions as a
basis for remedial legislation where needed, and for the
guidance and protection of the public.
The $3,978,000 estimated for expenses for the fiscal
year 1948 is approximately 40 percent greater than the
amount estimated for 1947. An increase of $852,880 is
included to implement the Commission's handling of
investigations and corrective actions on an industry-wide
basis. It has been the practice of the Commission, when
it received a complaint, to proceed with an investigation
of the specific company complained against and, if the
complaint was valid, to prohibit the specific company from
following the unfair practice. Thus competitors of that
company were free to follow the same unfair practice until
complaints against them were received and until time
permitted the Commission to conduct an investigation
and issue individual cease-and-desist orders with respect
to each company. Using an industry-wide basis the
Commission now, on its own motion, initiates an investigation of a whole industry; and all members of the industry who are using unfair competitive methods are pro-

The General Accounting Office audits the Government's
receipts and expenditures, prescribes accounting systems,
maintains appropriation accounts, settles claims, and construes and interprets laws.
The 1948 estimates for the General Accounting Office
show a substantial reduction compared with the 1947
appropriations. By far the greater portion of the appropriation is required for the performance of auditing
functions, including the audit of the accounts of Government corporations.
The work will be relatively current by the end of 1948,
but backlogs may still exist in some activities such as the
audit of Government checks.




HOUSING EXPEDITER

The Office of the Housing Expediter was originally
established by Executive Order 9686, which was issued
on January 26, 1946. The order empowered the Expediter to study and make recommendations for the solution of the housing problem, especially with respect to
the emergency housing needs of veterans.
The Expediter was given a statutory basis and required
appropriations were authorized by the Veterans' Emergency Housing Act, approved May 22, 1946. This act,
in addition to incorporating the powers conferred by the
Executive order, gave certain additional emergency
powers to the Expediter, including the power to allocate
and establish priorities for building material and equipment in short supply; to make premium payments for
additional production of materials essential to housing;
and to guarantee, within certain prescribed standards,
the market for factory-built houses and for new-type
building materials.
Both Executive Order 9686 and the Veterans' Emergency Housing Act authorized the Expediter to carry
out any portion of his program through the facilities of
existing Government agencies. The Expediter elected,
in accordance with this authority, to carry out his program

with the operation of these properties are covered into

The amount in the 1948 Budget required to protect
and conserve the Government's investment of some
$555,000 includes additional costs made necessary by
recent pay legislation.
Other activities of the National Capital Housing
Authority, which are financed from other appropriations,
include the operation and management of war and other
housing projects.
NATIONAL CAPITAL PARK AND PLANNING COMMISSION

The functions of the National Capital Park and Planning Commission are of an advisory and also an operating
character. Its advisory activities, which include preparation and maintenance of a comprehensive plan for the
development of the National Capital and its environs, are
charged against District revenues and therefore appear in
the District of Columbia chapter of the Budget. The
operating function of the Commission includes acquisition
of land for the development of the National Capital's park,
parkway, and playground system and the George Washington Memorial Parkway on both sides of the Potomac
River, and for the extension of the District park system
into nearby Maryland and Virginia. Appropriations for
these purposes are charged against the United States
Treasury but are subsequently repaid either in whole or
in part by the jurisdiction benefited: 100 percent by the
District of Columbia; 50 percent by Virginia and Maryland for development of the George Washington Memorial
Parkway; and 66% percent by Maryland for extension of
the park system in territory adjacent to the District.
The Commission has the further responsibility of making
a comprehensive plan and project area redevelopment
plans under the District of Columbia Redevelopment Act,
for which appropriations of Federal funds are authorized.
The total estimates of $3,368,000 for 1948 represent an
increase of $2,500,250, due primarily to advances and
contributions to the Maryland National Capital Park and
Planning Commission. Of the total estimates, $2,994,000
is required for land purchases in Maryland, $200,000 for
the George Washington Memorial Parkway, $79,000 for
lands within the District of Columbia, and $95,000 for
redevelopment planning and surveys.
NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS BOARD

The National Labor Relations Board administers the
provisions of the National Labor Relations Act (29 U. S. C.
151-166). Like a court of law, the Board has little or no
control over the number of actions brought before it but
is under a statutory mandate to process appropriately all
cases formally filed in its several regional offices. Moreover, the Board's work objective is comparable to that
of a court: to resolve as rapidly as possible, consistent
with careful investigation of the facts and due process of
law, the issues brought before it for determination.
The National Labor Relations Act guarantees, as a
matter of national policy, the rights of employees to selforganization; to form, join, or assist labor organizations;
and to bargain collectively through representatives of
their own choosing. The act defines five specific types of
unfair labor practices, which, if engaged in by employers,
constitute interference with the afore-mentioned employees' rights. The Board investigates charges of alleged
unfair labor practices and, if after appropriate notice
and hearing it finds that such practices have been com-




mitted, it is empowered to issue a cease-and-desist order
against the employer found to have committed such acts.
An order of the Board may be enforced, modified or set
aside by a United States circuit court of appeals upon
proper petition by the Board or an aggrieved employer.
The act provides that representatives designated or
selected for the purposes of collective bargaining by the
majority of employees, in a unit appropriate for such
purposes, shall exclusively represent all employees in
such unit for purposes of collective bargaining. The
Board is responsible for investigating questions concerning representation of employees for collective bargaining
and for certifying the majority representative of employees in the appropriate bargaining unit. In the
course of such investigation the Board may take a secret
ballot, make a check of union members7 cards or authorizations against the employer's pay roll, or utilize any
other suitable method to ascertain such representative.
A slight decrease in the relative number of representation
cases handled, as compared to the number of unfair labor
practice cases handled, occurred in fiscal year 1946,
reversing a steady upward trend during the preceding
10 years. During fiscal year 1946 the Board received
approximately 2 representation cases (8,445) to every
unfair labor practice case (3,815).
The Board is confronted with a rapidly mounting backlog of cases, which has the effect of increasing substantially
the period between receipt and disposition of a case. The
backlog increased by 42 percent during fiscal year 1946
and by an additional 23 percent during the first quarter
of the current fiscal year. The accelerated rate of backlog
accumulation in the current year is brought about by a
greatly increased rate of case receipts and by a drastic
reduction by Congress below estimated appropriation
requirements. The volume of cases received per month
since the beginning of the current fiscal year has averaged
42 percent above the monthly average of cases received
during fiscal year 1946 and is at a higher level than in any
previous year. The present excessive lag in case disposal
tends to prolong employer-employee tension while cases
are pending and to promote strikes rather than prevent
them. Because of this lag, labor organizations are impelled to resort to strike action as a defense against unfair
labor practices and in order to establish proof of majority
representation for purposes of collective bargaining,
rather than invoke tne judicial procedures of the Board.
It follows from the nature of the Board's work, and from
its key position in tfte national economy, that the Board
must be equipped with funds and personnel sufficient to
handle cases brought before it. The Board has formulated a program to dispose of incoming cases and to reduce
its backlog to a current operating basis by the middle of
fiscal year 1949. To initiate this program during the
current fiscal year, the Board proposes a supplemental
estimate of appropriation for 1947. The 1948 estimates
provide for continued execution of the proposed program.
NATIONAL MEDIATION BOARD

The National Mediation Board and the National Kailroad Adjustment Board are two administrative agencies
created under the Railway Labor Act of 1926, as amended
in 1934 and 1936. The purpose of the act is to promote
and maintain order in the labor relations of carriers by
rail and air and the organizations representing their
employees.
Under the act, the National Mediation Board has the
duty, with respect to railroad and air carriers, to: (1)

EXECUTIVE OFFICE AND INDEPENDENT OFFICES
Lediate disputes concerning rates of pay, rules, or workig conditions; (2) investigate disputes over representaon and conduct secret ballots or checks of authorization
>r the purpose of ascertaining the freely chosen, duly
^signated and authorized representatives of the emloyees involved; (3) induce the parties to submit unsolved disputes to arbitration; (4) notify the President
henever an unadjusted controversy threatens substanally to interrupt interstate commerce to a degree which
ould deprive any section of the country of essential
ansportation and to service emergency boards which
ay be created by the President in such instances; and
0 perform certain functions in connection with the
ational Railroad Adjustment Board. This procedure
as successful in avoiding major strikes on carriers until
artime emergency powers operated to restrict free
Elective bargaining.
To adapt the procedure to the wartime period in which
ajor labor organizations generally observed a no-strike
[edge, Executive Order 9172 creating the Railway Labor
anel provided for appointment of emergency panel
3ards to find and publish facts affecting a dispute in
hich mediation had failed and a proposal to arbitrate
as rejected. These boards are operative without the
^cessity of a threatened interruption to essential trans3rtation, a condition precedent to the creation of an
nergency board under section 10 of the act. In order
> restore the railway labor procedure to the statutory
ittern, the language making funds available for the
ailway Labor Panel and its emergency panel boards has
>en deleted from the text of the 1948 appropriation
itimates.
The National Railroad Adjustment Board consists of
) members equally representative of and compensated
y the carriers and the labor organizations, and composing
ur divisions, independent of one another, each with
irisdiction over specified crafts of employees. It is the
ity of the divisions of the Board to act on petitions from
L parties seeking adjustment of unresolved disputes,
e
volving an employee or group of employees and a carrier
• carriers, growing out of grievances or out of the inter-etation or application of agreements concerning rates
pay, rules, or working conditions. Secretaries to the
embers, administrative personnel, and incidental exmses are paid from appropriations authorized by the act.
The 1948 estimates provide an over-all increase of
.40,000. The fast developing air transport industry is
source of new work load. A reduction resulting from
rmination of the Railway Labor Panel is offset by
creased funds for emergency boards under section 10
the act. The net increase is due almost entirely to
gher costs for printing decisions and increased costs of
fice rent for the National Railroad Adjustment Board,
3ser amounts being required for mediator trainees and
ithin-grade salary increases.
PHILIPPINE WAR DAMAGE COMMISSION

To implement the policies of the United States toward
e Philippines as embodied in the Tydings-McDuffie Act
1934, the Seventy-ninth Congress enacted the Philipne Rehabilitation Act of 1946 (Public Law 370, 79th
3ng.) which authorized the appropriation of $400,000,000
r the purpose of assisting in the restoration of the eeonny of the new Republic. Because of the widespread
operty loss and destruction in the Philippines the Coness in its committee reports recognized that the money
Lthorized would provide only for partial restitution of




47

property losses. The Philippine War Damage Commission was entrusted with the duties of adjudicating and
paying war damage claims to those qualified under the
law.
The Commission began operation with an appropriation
of $10,000,000 carried in the Third Deficiency Appropriation Axt of 1946. Inasmuch as the Commission had been
established by the Seventy-ninth Congress and was just
beginning its work, that sum of money was considered to
be adequate to meet the needs for the fiscal year 1947.
The Commission will be organized for large-scale handling
of claims by the opening of fiscal year 1948 and the provision of $90,000,000 is estimated to be necessary to meet
immediate needs for payment of war damages during that
year.
PRICE DECONTROL BOARD

The Price Decontrol Board was created by the Price
Control Extension Act of 1946. Its three members were
appointed late in July 1946. In August, hearings were
held and decisions rendered on the decontrol of meat,
dairy products, fats and oils, and grains. Due to the
acceleration of the decontrol program following the
President's announcement of the decontrol of meat on
October 14 and the subsequent decontrol of most other
commodities on November 10, the Board has reduced its
staff to a minimum; the Board members will remain on
an "on call" basis until June 30, 1947, or as long as the
act is in force.
RAILROAD RETIREMENT BOARD

Legislation, enacted in the closing days of the Seventyninth Congress (Public Law 572), substantially expanded
and liberalized the program administered by the Railroad
Retirement Board. The amendments added survivors'
insurance, modeled after the old-age and survivors insurance system, requiring the use of wages recorded under
both systems in determining the survivors' benefits payable
under either system. Occupational disability insurance,
a new development in American social insurance, was also
added. The basis upon which physical disability insurance becomes payable has been liberalized and minimum
annuities have been increased. The retirement age for
women railroad workers was reduced to 60 years. Taxes
were substantially increased to provide for the costs of the
new insurances and the liberalization of already estab*
lished insurances. It was also intended that the increased
taxes should place the retirement program on an actuarially sound and self-supporting basis.
The amendments practically double operating costs of
the retirement program for 1947 and 1948. In addition to
a substantial increase in the volume of claims by reason of
the new insurances, the Board will be required to review
in the next 2 years some 356,900 cases out of which
232,000 new awards are expected. The provision for the
joint use of wage records under both the retirement and
old-age and survivors insurance programs will require
modifications of a substantial nature in both programs in
order to make the wage data available for use under either
system. Part of the costs of 1947 and 1948 will be nonrecurring after these years through the elimination of the
retroactive review of previous awards or disallowances,
but because of the new insurances and more liberal basis
for determining rights under existing insurances, the
retirement program will continue indefinitely at a substantially higher level than in 1946. The estimates for
salaries, miscellaneous expenses, printing and binding, and

48

THE BUDGET FOR FISCAL YEAR 1948

penalty mail reflect for 1948 the increased requirements
due to the changes brought about by the amendments.
The railroad retirement appropriated account is made
up of the estimated taxes to be collected from carriers and
their employees to provide, after deduction for annual
administrative costs, for retirement, disability and survivorship benefits. It also includes Federal contributions
for military service which represent, as provided by law,
the total tax which would have been received had the
worker entering military service continued in railroad
employment with earnings of $160 per month. The very
substantial increase in the estimate of taxes for 1948
reflects the increase in the tax rates beginning with the
calendar year 1947.
By reason of the continued receipt of taxes in excess of
benefit payments and administrative costs the railroad
retirement trust fund at the close of 1946 had improved
its position over the previous year. It is anticipated that
this improvement will be more rapid during the next few
years by reason of the increased tax rates applicable.
The railroad unemployment insurance fund annually
receives 10 percent of the taxes collected for railroad
unemployment insurance. It is used for the administrative costs of operating the railroad unemployment insurance system. The unexpended balance of this fund in
excess of the $6,000,000 at the close of each fiscal year
together with 90 percent of the taxes collected, goes into
the railroad unemployment insurance trust fund and is
used to pay unemployment, sickness and maternity
insurance benefits. By virtue of amendments to this
act increasing the benefit period for unemployment insurance, and adding sickness and maternity insurance and
liberalizing benefit payments, administrative costs will
increase. The unexpended balance transferable to the
trust fund at the close of each fiscal year will be correspondingly decreased. Because of prior year transfers
to the railroad unemployment insurance trust fund and
current accumulations, this trust fund is in a very strong
position to meet any demands in 1948 which may be
made upon it.

ume, together with the violent price fluctuations which
characterized trading in 1946, has resulted in a corresponding increase in the Commission's work in connection with
surveillance of markets and broker-dealer inspections,
pointing to the need for strengthening the staff. Progress
continued with the integration and corporate simplification of public utility systems under the Public Utility
Holding Company Act of 1935. The inability of both the
Commission and the companies involved to secure adequate technical personnel during the war years, which
seriously retarded this work, is no longer a problem. The
integration and simplification work under the Public
Utility Holding Company Act will be accelerated during
1947 and 1948. During 1948 the Commission will also
resume the compilation and publication of statistical
reports on individual companies, a program which was
inactive during the war period.
The $6,500,000 estimated for expenses for the fiscal
year 1948 is approximately 18 percent greater than the
amount estimated for 1947. The additional funds are
to provide primarily for (1) increased activity in the
surveillance of security markets and in the inspection
of broker-dealers, (2) strengthening the staff engaged
in processing registration statements covering refundings
and new financing, (3) accelerating the integration and
corporate simplification of public utility holding company
systems, and (4) the compilation and publication of financial statistics of individual companies. The Securities and
Exchange Commission and the Federal Trade Commission
will collaborate in carrying out the Federal program relating to business financial statistics. When compiled, these
statistics will be made available to other interested Government agencies and to the public.

SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION

SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTION

The functions of the Securities and Exchange Commission include the supervision of registration of security
issues and suppression of fraudulent practices in the
sale of securities; regulation of transactions in securities,
both on the stock exchanges and in the over-the-counter
markets; regulation of public utility holding companies;
registration and regulation of investment companies and
investment advisers; and the preparation of advisory
reports on plans and participation as a party in corporate
reorganization.
The volume of corporate financing registered with the
Commission during the year 1946 exceeded the average
for the three preceding war years by more than 200 percent, reflecting the favorable market conditions prevalent
during most of the year which have encouraged new
financing and continued refunding operations. Postwar
borrowing by corporations for additional capital for
expansion combined with anticipated continued favorable
market conditions, will continue the upward trend in
financing. As indicated by the number of shares traded
on the New York Stock Exchange, the volume of trading
in securities in 1946, both on national stock exchanges
and in the over-the-counter markets, continued at close
to the 7-year high record established in 1945. This vol-

The Smithsonian Institution, founded in 1846 for "the
increase and diffusion of knowledge among men/' carries
on fundamental research in the natural sciences, and administers the United States National Museum, the Astrophysical Observatory, the National Collection of Fine
Arts, the Bureau of American Ethnology, the International
Exchange Service, and the Canal Zone Biological Area.
The Institution establishes the standards which, control a
large proportion of the scientific inquiries of mankind.
Much of its basic research is of great benefit to the oil, mining, manufacturing, and fishing industries, to engineering
enterprise, and to medical research. The increase of
approximately 22 percent in the 1948 estimates is required
for the cataloging of scientific specimens, a pilot study in
modernization of exhibits, better cleaning of floors and
glass, printing and binding, and rehabilitation of the
laboratories and physical plant of the Canal Zone Biological Area.
The National Gallery of Art is a quasi-independent
branch of the Smithsonian Institution. Here are displayed free to the public world-famous paintings and
other art objects. The attendance at the Gallery continues to be greater than that at any other art gallery in
the world. An increase of approximately 7 percent in the




SELECTIVE SERVICE SYSTEM

year 1948 is included in this chapter.

.948 estimates is required for expansion of administrative,
curatorial, and educational functions.
TARIFF COMMISSION

The Tariff Commission is an independent fact-finding,
act-reporting agency which studies the effects of United
States and foreign trade activities on United States domesic industries and international trade throughout the
porld. Its investigations provide a basis for action by
he Congress, by the President, and by the executive
lepartments.
The major objective of the Commission traditionally
tas been the factual determination of the effect of United
Itates import policies on domestic industries facing com>etition from goods produced abroad. The Commission
loes not determine trade policies or the level of tariffs;
hese functions belong to the Congress and the President,
iince its establishment in 1916, besides developing a staff
> acknowledged competence, the Commission has become
f
L reservoir of trade, production, commodity, and import
nformation of wide use to Government agencies.
During fiscal year 1947 it is estimated that total funds
Lvailable to the Commission will be $1,109,000 and the
>roposed appropriation for fiscal year 1948 totals $1,320,)00, an increase of $211,000.
Since the termination of the war, the United States
jovernment has been pursuing a series of major programs
[irected toward the expansion of international trade;
Lamely, the resumption of trade-agreement negotiations,
•anticipation in the International Bank and the Monetary
^und, granting the British loan, and participation
a a proposed international trade organization. Fiscal
r
ear 1947 represents a transitional year during which
reparations for the stimulation of trade have been under
ray, but trade cannot be expected to revive fully in this
r
ear. The nuclear trade-agreement negotiations will
Lot have been completed until the early part of fiscal
r
ear 1948 nor will the international trade organization
Lave been established before then. Similarly, the full
ffects of the British loan, the operation of the World
Sank and the Monetary Fund, and special legislation
uch as the Philippine Trade Act, will not be felt until
948 and after. In 1948 also the Government must
letermine the future of trade agreements since the
nabling act expires in June of that year.
With the expansion of international trade within
laborate systems of governmental controls, the need for
act-finding by the Tariff Commission as the basis for
dministrative and legislative decisions will be greatly
ticreased. The economic welfare of the United States
s well as of the other United Nations depends upon the
uccess of revived, expanding trade; and the mainteLance of a high level of employment, both in the United
States and abroad, is directly related to the successful
xpansion of the exports and imports of the United States.
T H E TAX COURT OF THE UNITED STATES

The function of the Tax Court is to review administraiye determinations of tax deficiencies made by the Comaissioner of Internal Revenue and to finally decide
whether there is a deficiency or an overpayment in income,
irofits, estate, gift, and unjust enrichment taxes, and
•ersonal holding company surtaxes; to adjudicate conroversies relating to excess profits on Navy contracts and
Lrmy aircraft contracts; and to review the action of the
Commissioner in deficiency and refund cases founded on
laims of abnormalities under excess-profits statutes.
720000—47

49

The Court also has jurisdiction in cases involving refunds
of processing taxes, and in determining the amount of
excessive profits on war contracts when contractors
appeal determinations made under the Renegotiation Act.
The 1948 estimates for the Tax Court of the United
States show an increase of approximately 7 percent over
1947 appropriations. This increase is necessary to enable
the Tax Court to handle an existing backlog of cases and,
at the same time, to handle a considerable volume of new
cases which will require attention in 1948.
UNITED STATES MARITIME COMMISSION

The Merchant Marine Act of 1936 declared a merchant
marine to be "necessary for the national defense and
development of * * * foreign and domestic commerce." The act represented a compromise after 150
years of controversy, departing from previous legislation
by accepting the principle of open subsidization of both
construction and operation, regulated to prevent abuses.
To administer the act, Congress created the United States
Maritime Commission and entrusted it with broad discretionary authority to define and establish "essential"
trade routes; to administer construction- and operatingdifferential subsidies; to purchase, construct, and operate
vessels either directly or by contract under certain conditions; to train officers and seamen, and to establish working conditions, wages, and manning scales for inclusion
in subsidy contracts; to provide ship-mortgage insurance;
to regulate trade practices and prevent discrimination
among shippers; and to promote both foreign trade and
the employment of American vessels.
The Maritime Commission's principal wartime responsibility has been the building of ships. Its prewar functions of purchase, charter, operation, and seaman-training
were transferred to War Shipping Administration by
Executive order issued February 7, 1942; and during the
war this agency was responsible for the operation of the
largest merchant fleet in the world. By December 1,
1946, the active fleet operating for Government account
had declined from a wartime peak of about 4,000 vessels
to approximately 1,100 vessels.
Pursuant to the act of July 8, 1946 (Public Law 492),
all functions and appropriations of the War Shipping Administration were transferred to the United States Maritime Commission on September 1, 1946. This action was
taken "For the purposes of the liquidation by December
31, 1946, of all of the [operating] functions of the War
Shipping Administration. * * *" However,
the
Commission was given an extension of operating authority for two more months, to March 1, 1947, by act of July
23, 1946 (Public L a w ^ l ) . The 1948 Budget makes provision for these activities only to the date of March 1, as
specified by Congress.
Construction fund.—Primary responsibility of the United
States Maritime Commission in 1947-48 is to restore private operation in accordance with the Merchant Marine
Act of 1936. This requires ship sales and charters, supported by reconversion of war-built vessels and operatingdifferential subsidies. The Budget also provides for a
limited amount of new construction of specialized vessels
to round out the peacetime American merchant marine,
and for administrative expense, surplus property disposal,
maintenance of ship-yard facilities, operation of warehouses, and preservation of unrequired vessels in reserve
fleets, as required by the Merchant Ship Sales Act of 1946.
Cash and contract authority will be available from prior
year balances and receipts for the above-enumerated
responsibilities.

50

THE BUDGET FOR FISCAL YEAR 1948

Revolving fund.-—Continued operation of ships for Government account is provided for only to March 1, 1947,
in accordance with the act of July 23, 1946. Surplus
war-built vessels are being sold or chartered as rapidly
as possible, and it is estimated that approximately $1,000,000,000 of the $11,000,000,000 spent for construction of
vessels during the war will be recovered to the Treasury.
Maritime training.—This activity, although carried on
by the War Shipping Administration during the war, is
a statutory function of the United States Maritime Commission. It was established by amendment to the Merchant Marine Act in 1938.
The 1948 budgetary provision of $5,470,000 for this
purpose contemplates the continuance of support for
State marine schools and for other federally conducted
training on a reduced scale commensurate with peacetime
requirements.
State marine schools.—In addition to the direct training
activities of the Maritime Commission, grants are made
to established State marine schools.
The appropriation for State marine schools is to provide
for matching grants and per capita payments for out-ofState students, and for repairs to vessels.
The increase in the 1948 estimate is related to the item
of ship repairs.
Authority for the establishment of and the payment of
matching grants for the State marine schools is contained
in the act of March 4, 1911.
EMPLOYEES7 COMPENSATION COMMISSION

The functions of the Employees' Compensation Commission were transferred to the Federal Security Agency
under the provisions of Reorganization Plan No. 2 of 1946,
approved by Congress on July 16, 1946. A description
of this program and the recommendation for the provision
of funds therefor is set forth under Federal Security
Agency head in this Budget.
VETERANS' ADMINISTRATION

The Veterans7 Administration furnishes to the veterans
of all wars and of the peacetime Military Establishment
services consisting mainly of medical and hospital care,
the payment of compensation and pensions, the administration of Government life insurance, and a number of
broad new programs for veterans of World War II,
namely, vocational rehabilitation for disabled veterans;
protection from loss of commercial insurance policies in
accordance with the Soldiers' and Sailors' Relief Act; the
guaranty of loans to eligible veterans for the purchase of
homes, farms, or business properties; the provision of
subsistence allowances, tuition, books, fees, and educational supplies to eligible veterans who wish to obtain
additional education or who desire to obtain training in a
vocation; and the payment of readjustment allowances to
veterans while seeking employment, or while attempting
to establish themselves as self-employed, for a period after
their discharge.
The extremely rapid demobilization of the armed forces
following the surrender of Japan placed a tremendous
burden upon the agency—one which it was practically
impossible to foresee with any degree of accuracy. Consequently, supplemental appropriations of over $2,000,000,000 will be required for the fiscal year 1947, in addition
to the over $6,000,000,000 currently available. Total
appropriations required for fiscal year 1948 are estimated
at almost $7,000,000,000, or nearly $1,500,000,000 less
than now estimated for 1947.
While the estimated appropriation required for " Salaries and expenses" reflects a decrease of about $7,000,000



from the 1947 estimate, actually the proposed new appropriation "Veterans' miscellaneous benefits" includes, for
1948, $58,200,000 of items charged to the "Salaries and
expenses" appropriation in 1947. For a statement showing, by functions, comparable obligations for fiscal years
1946, 1947, and 1948 from the "Salaries and expenses"
appropriation, see page 150. It should be noted that while
total obligations increase $54,000,000 on a comparable
basis (from $838,000,000 in 1947 to $892,000,000 in 1948),
obligations for medical, hospital, and domiciliary care
increase $70,000,000 while all other programs show a total
decrease of $16,000,000.
In general, the decrease in the programs other than for
hospital and medical care is due to a somewhat decreased
work load resulting from a lower number of veterans entering the various programs for the first time, although the
average numbers of veterans included in the programs will
be, on the whole, higher than in 1947. This is particularly
true in the claims program, which includes the handling of
claims from veterans or their dependents for compensation, pensions, and insurance death benefits. While considerable work will be necessary in connection with examinations and reratings of disabled veterans, the numbers of new claims will decline sharply.
Administrative expenses in connection with insurance
will rise somewhat due to the necessity of eliminating
backlogs of work still impeding fully satisfactory service
to veterans who are carrying National Service Life
Insurance.
The trends for the vocational rehabilitation and education, loan guaranty, and readjustment allowance programs,
are discussed below in connection with the appropriation
"Readjustment benefits."
For the hospital and medical care program, it is anticipated that the average number of beds available in 150
hospitals and homes will be increased approximately 4,252
in 1948, bringing the average to 127,810 beds. These
facilities will be used to provide hospital and domiciliary
care for an estimated average patient and member load
of 104,172, an increase of 10,078 over the fiscal year 1947
estimate. In addition, an average patient and member
load of 24,072 will be cared for in other Government, State,
and private hospitals. The out-patient activities at field
stations will be expanded to take care of an estimated
8 million examinations and treatments and approximately
5% million examinations and treatments will be provided
on a fee basis through the home-town medical care program of the Administration. The special services program will provide expanded recreational activities, a fulltime chaplain service, and improved library service.
Medical research activities in connection with the care
of veterans hospitalized in the agency's facilities will be
expanded and medical training and education authorized
under Public Law 293, 79th Congress, will be provided.
The proposed new appropriation "Administrative facilities" will provide for the construction of eight regional
office buildings in cities where it has been impossible to
locate adequate space by other means to give proper
service to veterans and their dependents.
A supplemental estimate of appropriation for "Army
and Navy pensions" in the amount of $432,407,000 is
necessary in the fiscal year 1947 due largely to legislation
enacted by the 79tb Congress subsequent to the presentation of the 1947 Budget. A particularly important
act was Public Law 662, which increased all compensation
and pension payments to veterans of both World Wars,
and their dependents, by 20 percent. The total numbers
on the compensation and pension rolls are as follows: June

EXECUTIVE OFFICE AND INDEPENDENT OFFICES

30, 1946 (actual), 2,082,056; June 30, 1947 (estimated),
2,860,934; and June 30, 1948 (estimated), 3,154,737.
The present outlook is that the fiscal year 1947 will be
the peak year for "Readjustment benefits", though this
is by no means certain. This appropriation covers three
principal benefits which were made available to veterans
under the Servicemen's Readjustment Act of 1944, as
amended: (1) unemployment and self-employment allowances; (2) subsistence allowances (plus tuition, supplies,
and equipment) for veterans engaged in education and
training; and (3) the payment of the first year's interest,
and whatever losses may be incurred, on loans to veterans
guaranteed by the Veterans' Administration. The trend
in the first of these three should definitely be downward
after fiscal year 1947. The peak of this program, when
1,811,000 veterans were drawing unemployment allowances and 332,000 were drawing self-employment allowances, came in the summer of 1946. While there may be
temporary situations which will cause the number of
unemployed veterans to increase, only a major recession
could bring the number drawing such benefits back to or
above that peak. The estimated average number of
veterans in this program for 1948 is 925,000 compared to
an estimated average of 1,292,000 for 1947.
The number of veterans drawing subsistence allowances while they are engaged in education and training
will increase, however, in 1948 above the 1947 level, judging from available evidence. Although the passage of
Public Law 679 of the 79th Congress seems to have slowed
down the extremely rapid increases which had occurred ia
the number of veterans engaged in training on the job,
there will probably still be an appreciable increase in this
program. The number of students engaged in institutional education will no doubt continue at close to the
maximum capacity of the institutions, which will be somewhat higher in 1948 than in 1947. The estimated average number of veterans in the education and training program covered by this appropriation is 2,145,000 in 1948,
compared with an estimated average of 2,000,000 in 1947.
It is estimated that the number of loans to be guaranteed
in 1948 will be approximately 1,000,000, which represents
an average rate about 30 percent higher than the present
rate.
For these three programs combined it is estimated that
the total obligations under the appropriation "Readjustment benefits" will decrease somewhat in 1948 over 1947—•
from $3,630,295,941 to $3,424,580,000—as shown in the
detailed estimate of appropriation "Readjustment bene-

51

fits" shown on pages 151-152. This varies from the
summary table at the head of this chapter because of the
fact that approximately $625,000,000 of the 1947 estimate
of $4,258,962,000 shown in the summary table was actually
obligated in 1946.
The construction program for 1948 under "Hospital and
domiciliary facilities" will provide 15 new hospitals with a
total capacity of 11,900 beds at an estimated cost of
approximately $215,000,000. Construction estimated to
cost approximately $53,000,000 will also be undertaken in
connection with the expanded program for repair, alteration, and renovation of existing facilities.
The veterans7 canteen service was established under
the provisions of Public Law 636, 79th Congress, and the
estimate of $1,465,000 for 1948 will provide funds for the
installation of approximately 25 new canteens, bringing
the total in operation at hospitals and homes to 150 by the
end of fiscal year 1948.
The fiscal year 1948 will show a drastic reduction in
the Government's share of the cost of national service
life insurance. The National Service Life Insurance Act
of 1940, as amended, provided that the Government
would bear all losses suffered as a result of the hazards of
war. Delays in the presentation of claims, and further
delays in their award and in the process of determining if
the claims were due to war hazards, plus a revaluation of
previous transfers as authorized by the Insurance Act of
1946, will result in a cost of approximately $975,000,000
in fiscal year 1947. The total cost to the Government for
war hazard insurance losses is now between'$3,500,000,000
and $1,000,000,000. Only relatively minor additional
losses are expected after the current fiscal year.
As mentioned above, a proposed new appropriation
"Veterans' miscellaneous benefits" will assume charges
for burial awards, and for tuition, supplies, and equipment
for disabled veterans undertaking training under the
Vocational Rehabilitation Act, such items being previously
charged to the "Salaries and expenses" appropriation.
The size of these items, and the fact that the agency has
no administrative control over the amounts, indicates the
desirability of handling them separately.
The geographical decentralization of the Administration, begun in fiscal year 1946, will be substantially complete in fiscal year 1947, with all 13 branch offices on a
full operating basis beginning in January of 1947. Further
refinements in the organizational plan may be expected in
fiscal year 1948 to improve service to veterans and to
decrease administrative costs.
