1. At December 31, 1947: 3,019.

2 and 3. To provide the information called for, an analysis of each account, averaging eight to ten ledger pages, would be required. Advances were made, not only at time of settlement or shortly thereafter, but also subsequently in the form of payment of taxes and insurance. An estimate that two years and twenty weeks would be required by a man working full time, to complete the analysis, is based on an actual trial of six men analysing two accounts.

4. (a) $3,172,250.36;

(b) $116,993.75.

5. During the past four completed fiscal years an average of 752 soldier settlers per year have repaid their loans in cash, and an average of 47 soldier settlers additional have repaid their loans by assignment under time sale.

6 and 7. To provide the information called for, an examination of each individual file would be required. A return made on March 24, 1947, gives a close answer to the questions now asked-correction being necessary only because of lapse of time and decreased number of soldier settlers who are still indebted to the director.
