SELF-SUSTAINING SERVICES A number of the services of the Library are in whole or in part self-sustaining. A final statement showing the ratio of costs to receipts is not at this time obtainable, for whereas accounts receivable are known with exactitude, charges are not. Expecially in the case of the Distribution of Card Indexes this circumstance prevents a complete estimate of the operations of the last year, for the reason that cards to be added to stock, constituting one of the assets of the service, are still in process of being printed, and their number is not yet known.
The following statement is not intended, consequently, to be a complete accounting of the services described, but merely to show, for purposes of gross comparison, the total disbursements on account of each service (as shown on the books of the Disbursing Office during the year) and the total receipts (as shown in the accounts of the Treasury for the same period). Just as disbursements may have been from any one of the appropriations for the last 3 years which were available for disbursement during 1911, so the receipts may have been partly on account of services rendered during prior years.

Mr. O'NEAL. I think we might proceed with our examination of the individual items in your estimate. When the estimate came to us, you made the statement, Dr. MacLeish, that the total amount asked for was $1,582,155, while the appropriation for 1942 is $1,327,835, making a net increase of $254,320. Your first item covering salaries of the Library of Congress proper appears at page 92 of the bill. This is now revised to $1,446,455, an increase of $118,620, instead of $254,320. I think it would be well, Dr. MacLeish, to insert in the record at this point the revised summary of the estimate for this item.
Mr. MacLeish. We will supply that for the record. (The matter referred to is as follows:)
