together with such other materials as may be useful in connection 
therewith, and an index digest of such precedents and other materials.

format as Lewis Deschler may determine, and in such numbers and for 
such distribution as may hereafter be provided by law. For the purpose 
of carrying out such compilation and preparation, Lewis Deschler may 
(1) subject to the approval of the Speaker, appoint (as employees of

personnel of the Library of Congress and the Government Printing 
Office. Pub. Law 89-90 (79 Stat. 270), July 27, 1965.
