CALVIN COOLIDGE.

BUREAU OF THE BUDGET,

$310, 000 The purpose of the estimate of appropriation submitted herewith is to enable the War Department to carry out the provision in the act approved February 18, 1928 (Public No. 61, 70th Cong.), relating to the Walter Reed General Hospital, District of Columbia, which authorizes an appropriation of $310,000 for the construction of a three-story ward building, for conversion of the fourth story of the present administration building of said hospital into an operating suite, including the construction of the necessory corridors, roads, walks, grading utilities, and appurtenances thereto.

SETTLEMENT OF WAR CLAIMS ACT OF 1928

FEBRUARY 27, 1928.-Ordered to lie on the table and to be printed

Mr. Smoot submitted the following

CONFERENCE REPORT

On the bill (H. R. 7201) to provide for the settlement of certain claims of

American nationals against Germany and of German nationals against the United States, or the ultimate return of all property of German nationals held by the Alien Property Custodian, and for the equitable apportionment among all claimants of certain available funds.

The committee of conference on the disagreeing votes of the two Houses on the amendment of the Senate to the bill (H. R. 7201) to provide for the settlement of certain claims of American nationals against Germany and of German nationals against the United States, for the ultimate return of all property of Germany nationals held by the Alien Property Custodian, and for the equitable apportionment among all claimants of certain available funds, having met, after full and free conference, have agreed to recommend and do recommend to their respective Houses, as follows:

That the House recede from its disagreement to the amendment of the Senate and agree to the same with an amendment as follows:

In lieu of the matter proposed to be inserted by the Senate amendment insert the following: That this Act may be cited as the Settlement of War Claims Act of 1928."

CLAIMS OF NATIONALS OF THE UNITED STATES AGAINST GERMANY

Sec. 2. (a) The Secretary of State shall, from time to time, certify to the Secretary of the Treasury the awards of the Mixed Claims Commission, United States and Germany, established in pursuance of the agreement of August 10, 1922, between the United States and Germany (referred to in this Act as the Mixed Claims Commission').

(6) The Secretary of the Treasury is authorized and directed to pay an amount equal to the principal of each award so certified, plus the interest thereon, in accordance with the award, accruing before January 1, 1928.

(c) The Secretary of the Treasury is authorized and directed to pay annually (as nearly as may be) simple interest, at the rate of 5 per centum per annum, upon the amounts payable under subsection (6) and remaining unpaid, beginning January 1, 1928, until paid.

(d) The payments authorized by subsection (6) or (c) shall be made in accordance with such regulations as the Secretary of the Treasury may prescribe, but only out of the German special deposit account created by section 4, within the limitations hereinafter prescribed, and in the order of priority provided in subsection (c) of section 4.

(e) There shall be deducted from the amount of each payment, as reimbursement for the expenses incurred by the United States in respect thereof, an amount equal to one-half of 1 per centum thereof. The amount so deducted shall be deposited in the Treasury as miscellaneous receipts. In computing the amounts payable under subsection (c) of section 4 (establishing the priority of payments) the fact that such deduction is required to be made from the payment when computed or that such deduction has been made from prior payments, shall be disregarded.

(1) The amounts awarded to the United States in respect of claims of the United States on its own behalf shall not be payable under this section.

(g) No payment shall be made under this section unless application therefor is made, within two years after the date of the enactment of this Act, in accordance with such regulations as the Secretary of the Treasury may prescribe. Payment shall be made only to the person on behalf of whom the award was made, except that

(1) If such person is deceased or is under a legal disability, payment shall be made to his legal representative, except that if the payment is not over $500 it may be made to the persons found by the Secretary of the Treasury to be entitled thereto, without the necessity of compliance with the requirements of law in respect of the administration of estates;

(2) In the case of a partnership, association, or corporation, the existence of which has been terminated, payment shall be made, except as provided in paragraphs (3) and (4), to the persons found by the Secretary of the Treasury to be entitled thereto;

(3) If a receiver or trustee for the person on behalf of whom the award was made has been duly appointed by a court in the United States and has not been discharged prior to the date of payment, payment shall be made to the receiver or trustee or in accordance with the order of the court; and

(4) In the case of an assignment of an award, or an assignment (prior to the making of the award) of the claim in respect of which the award was made, by a receiver or trustee for any such person, duly appointed by a court in the United States, such payment shall be made to the assignee.

(h) Nothing in this section shall be construed as the assumption of a liability by the United States for the payment of the awards of the Mixed Claims Commission, nor shall any payment under this section be construed as the satisfaction, in whole or in part, of any of such awards, or as extinguishing or diminishing the liability of Germany for the satisfaction in full of such awards, but shall be considered only as an advance by the United States until all the payments from Germany in satisfaction of the awards have been received. Upon any payment under this section of an amount in respect of an award, the rights in respect of the award and of the claim in respect of which the award was made shall be held to have been assigned pro tanto to the United States, to be enforced by and on behalf of the United States against Germany, in the same manner and to the same extent as such rights would be enforced on behalf of the American national.
