(Testimony of C. Douglas Dillon)

Mr. Dulles.
So they will have more or less two permanent jobs to do.
The Chairman.
While you may have bad a decrease in counterfeiting, I suppose you have had a great increase in forgeries, haven't you?
Secretary DILLON. Yes; we have had an increase I said in counterfeiting and also in forgeries.
The Chairman.
Oh, in counterfeiting. I misunderstood you. I thought you said you had a decrease.
Secretary DILLON. No; a great increase in counterfeiting on account of development of these methods of photography.
The Chairman.
Yes; I recall now.
Secretary DILLON. That is similar to check forgery which is the same problem on Government cheeks which has also increased.
Mr. Dulles.
That is all I have, Mr. Chief Justice.
The Chairman.
Very well. Thank you very much, Mr. Secretary.
Before we adjourn, I would like to say to you, Mr. Secretary, that the Secret Service has been most cooperative ever since this Commission was formed. It has been very attentive to our every wish and has been very helpful throughout. We appreciate it very much indeed.
Secretary DILLON. Thank you, Mr. Chief Justice.
The Chairman.
Also, we appreciate the very fine work which the Internal Revenue agents did in making a study of reconstructing income of persons involved in the investigation and the other assistance that the agents gave in connection with our work.
[In connection with the testimony of Secretary Dillon the Commission requested and received additional information on Secret Service budget requests for the fiscal years 1960 through 1965. The document containing the information was marked as Commission Exhibit No. 1053-F for identification and received in evidence.]
We will adjourn now.
(Whereupon, at 1:25 p.m., the President's Commission adjourned.)
