Mr. FLOOD. Having concluded with the Government witnesses after some 3 months of hearings, we begin this morning to hear our colleagues from Congress and other interested persons with reference to the matters with which they are concerned within the jurisdiction of this subcommittee. We are especially pleased again this year to have as a spokesman the distinguished gentleman from Mississippi, Mr. Whitten, who is a ranking member of the full Committee on Appropriations and chairman of the very important Appropriations Subcommittee on the Department of Agriculture. He has appeared before us before. He is a strong and eloquent advocate of his position and always receives rapt attention from this committee.
Congressman Whitten is accompanied by the distinguished gentleman from Florida, Mr. Sikes, who has appeared with Mr. Whitten and his associates through the years on these problems concerning them.
He is also accompanied by the distinguished gentleman from Alubama, Mr. Andrews, whose eloquence is well known, and whose appearance we welcome again.
By coincidence, Mr. Whitten, Mr. Sikes, and Mr. Andrews serve with me, I should
say I serve with them since they have been here longer than I have-on the great Subcommittee on Defense Appropriations. So we are not unknown to each other or to the House in these matters.
As well, there is the distinguished gentleman from North Carolina, Mr. Jonas, who has appeared before with the colleagues mentioned above on this subject and who frequently represents the minority in the full Committee on Appropriations and on the floor as the ranking minority Member.
We are pleased again, Mr. Whitten, to have you make your presentation.
