This fifth supplement to the 1958 edition of the United States Code contains the additions to and changes in the general and permanent laws of the United States enacted during the Eighty-sixth and Eighty-seventh Congresses and Eighty-eighth Congress, First Session. This supplement together with the 1958 edition establishes prima facie those laws in effect on January 6, 1964, except that Titles 1, 3, 4, 6, 9, 10, 13, 14, 17, 18, 23, 28, 32, 35, 37, 38, and 39 having been enacted into law, establish legal evidence of the law contained in those titles. This supplement has been prepared under the supervision of Subcommittee No. 3, Revision of Laws, of the Committee on the Judiciary, House of Representatives, with the assistance of the West Publishing Company, of St. Paul, Minnesota, and the Edward Thompson Company, of Brooklyn, New York, who have assisted in preparing all prior editions and supplements of the Code. Grateful acknowledgment is made of the cooperation by all who have helped in this work particularly by the staffs of both publishing companies and of Dr. Charles J. Zinn, law revision counsel of this committee, and by the several sections of the Government Printing Office.

Suggestions and criticisms designed to improve the Code are invited by the committee.
