Due to the increased cost of many of the items listed in the general schedule of supplies for the current fiscal year as well as those offered in the open market, and to the fact that the newly created Women's Bureau must be supplied in part from this appropriation it is felt that the funds available, although greater than originally provided for the purpose during the previous year, will not be sufficient to meet all the needs of the Department, even though all past practices of economy be followed religiously.

DISBURSING CLERK. Functions. The disbursing clerk prepares requisitions for public funds from appropriations for the Department. He also pays its obligations and does the general accounting of the Department. Naturalization fees and moneys received by the Secretary of Labor from aliens in lieu of bond are accounted for by him.

Appropriations.-For the fiscal year ended June 30, 1919, the appropriations by Congress to the Department and its services and the allotments made by the President to the Department from the appropriation of $100.000,000 provided for the national security and defense by the deficiency act approved April 17, 1917, were as follows: Salaries, Office of the Secretary of Labor.....
