REPORT

[Useless papers in office of the Comptroller General]

The joint select committee of the Senate and House of Represen tatives, appointed on the part of the Senate and on the part of the House of Representatives, to which were referred the reports of the heads of departments, bureaus, etc., in respect to the accumulation therein of old and useless files of papers which are not needed or useful in the transaction of the current business therein, respectively, and have no permanent value or historical interest, with accompanying statements of the condition and character of such papers, respectfully report to the Senate and House of Representatives, pursuant to an act entitled "An act to authorize and provide for the disposition of useless papers in the executive departments," approved February 16, 1889, as follows:

Your committee have met and, by a subcommittee appointed by your committee, carefully and fully examined the said report referred to your committee and the statements of the condition and the character of such files and papers therein described, and we find and report that the files and papers described in the report of the Comptroller General of the United States to the Seventy-first Congress, second session, dated January 6, 1930, are not needed in the transaction of the current business of such office and have no permanent value or historical interest.

We recommend that, as required by law, the Comptroller General sell as waste paper or otherwise dispose of such files of papers upon the best obtainable terms after due publication of notice inviting

proposals therefor, and receive and pay the proceeds thereof into the
Treasury of the United States, and make report thereof to Congress.
Respectfully submitted to the Senate and House of Representatives.

JANUARY 6, 1930.

The SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.

MY DEAR MR. SPEAKER: Pursuant to act of February 16, 1889 (25 Stat. 672), I have the honor to transmit herewith a report of papers or documents now in the files of the General Accounting Office, not needed for the transaction of public business and without permanent value or historic interest.

Sincerely yours,

J. R. MCCARL, Comptroller General of the United States.

Check lists and carbon copies of checks, occupying approximately 1,110 cubic feet of space in the Emory Building, located at First and B Streets, NW. NOTE. These lists and copies of checks are all dated prior to January 1, 1928.

LIBRARY OF CONGRESS,
Washington, March 2, 1931.

The COMPTROLLER GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES.

SIR: In reply to your letter of February 27, transmitting samples of the check lists and carbon copies of checks in the files of the General Accounting Office, which the office wishes to destroy under the terms of the Executive order of March 16, 1912:

The matter has had the attention of the chief of our division of manuscripts, who now reports that none of the documents accompanying your letter seem to have any historical value. The samples are therefore returned herewith.

It seems proper to note, in this connection, that Executive Order No. 1499, mentioned by you, requires that "lists of such papers (papers deemed useless) shall be submitted to the Librarian of Congress," etc., and your letter is not accompanied by any list of papers but only by specimens.

Very respectfully,

HERBERT PUTNAM, Librarian.
