OPERATIONS OF THE PANAMA CANAL COMPANY AND

CANAL ZONE GOVERNMENT

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 9, 1954

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, COMMITTEE ON MERCHANT MARINE AND FISHERIES,

SUBCOMMITTEE No. 3,

Washington, D.C. The subcommittee met at 10:10 a. m., pursuant to call, Hon. John J. Allen, Jr. (chairman of the subcommittee) presiding.

Mr. ALLEN. The subcommittee will come to order. The committee is about to undertake hearings with regard to several questions which concern the operation of the Panama Canal. The first basic consideration is under the general jurisdiction of each committee which has the duty of supervising the execution of laws which have originated in the committee; and in that regard the committee is hopeful that the manner in which Public Law 841 of the 81st Congress has been carried out will be fully discussed.

In addition to that subject, a little over a year ago the General Accounting Office made a report concerning the Panama Canal in which it listed 13 recommendations for congressional action. We expect to discuss those recommendations and whatever action should be taken upon them.

Furthermore, there have been at least two other questions formally up before us: The bills recently introduced by Mrs. Sullivan and Mr. Dorn were introduced at the request of interested parties in order that the questions presented might be in printed form and definitely stated and before the committee.

Similarly the bill which I recently introduced, which has to do with certain interest charges and depreciation and other accounting matters at the request of the American Steamship Association is likewise introduced in order that the question might be definitely stated before the committee.

We have furthermore the information with regard to the BoozAllen-Hamilton report, and the various criticisms made from time to time by the subcommittees on appropriations dealing with the financing of the Canal operation, which bring before us the consideration of whether or not that report is a well-founded report, and whether some action on the part of this committee should be taken. I think I have stated generally the objectives which we have before

Does any member of the committee wish to add anything to that statement? If not, then we will proceed with the hearing.

And we are very pleased, Governor Seybold, that you have the time and opportunity to be with us; and we'd like very much for you to discuss the situation and open this hearing.

Would you identify yourself for the record, and make such statement as you care to make?
