UNITED STATES SENATE,
SUBCOMMITTEE OF THE COMMITTEE ON APPROPRIATIONS,

GENERAL STATEMENT BY CHAIRMAN McCARRAN

COMMITTEE PROCEDURE

Senator McCARRAN. I would like before starting the hearings on the State, Justice, Commerce, and Judiciary Subcommittee, to make just a few observations. Before we hear from the Attorney General, I should like to make this very short statement.

Unless the committee is of a different mind, I recommend that the same procedure be followed as was the case last year. All hearings will be in executive session unless a member of the committee requests that for a particular item the hearing be open. When that item is concluded, the committee will then resume the executive session.

This system worked very well last year. It is a method that facilitates the hearings and allows the committee to proceed in an orderly manner.

I also wish to call to the committee's attention that when a witness makes statements off the record, that means that it will not be taken down by the stenographer unless he is otherwise instructed. If that part of the testimony is taken down, it will not appear in the printed hearings. Statements that are made off the record should not be repeated on the outside. If this system is followed, witnesses will be more inclined to be frank with the committee in making statements that are, for sound reasons, not made a part of the public announcement.

As the members of the committee well know, we are facing terrible dangers at home and abroad: Abroad, the enemies of our system of Government and our way of life; and at home, from the horrors of inflation which, unless checked, will surely bring about a downfall just as sure as might come from an enemy.
