PREFACE

Pursuant to agreement between the chairman of the Committee on Ways and Means and the Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce, public notice was given and hearings announced on March 31, 1926. These hearings were held by joint subcommittees, as indicated on the first page, on April 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, and 14. Unrevised copies of the proceedings were published daily for the immediate use of the committee and distributed to the committee and the interested witnesses.

These daily prints were revised and have been compiled into this volume. Owing to the desire of the committee to have these hearings published for general distribution as soon as possible, it has been necessary to omit certain lists now in the course of compilation, which will be published later as a supplement to these hearings.

This compilation attempts to arrange the hearings as follows:
1. Statements by Government officials.
2. Statements from the general public.
3. Miscellaneous letters, briefs, and memorandums.
4. Appendix containing

(1) List of mixed claims awards;
(2) List of payments made to attorneys by the Alien Property Custodian;

and
(3) List of trusts in excess of $20,000 held by the Alien Property Cus-

todian. 5. Index.

Wherever it has been possible to do so, repetition and irrelevant discussion have been omitted from this volume.

All communications suggesting amendments received up to this date have been included herein.

CLAYTON F. MOORE,

Clerk Committee on Ways and Means. APRIL 23, 1926.
