Mr. WIGGLEsworth. You have had some funds from the President's emergency fund, have you not?

Mr. CUSTER. We had an allotment during the fiscal year 1942, of which we have available this year, $23,019.

We also had an allotment of $5,100 this year for the payment of

o transportation and expenses of the Fourth Regional office employees

who were decentralized. That is a total of $28,119 from the President's fund as available

during the current fiscal year. Mr. WooDRUM. If you have not already done so will you put a

statement in the record showing the amount of that fund, what it was

... used for, and what remains?
