I am transmittint' herewith the 42d report to Congress on lend-lease operations for the calendar year 1960

Information on the status of the various lend-lease accounts of our Allies of World War II is contained in the report. As explained in previous reports there were two main types of lend-lease procedures under which other countries undertook to reimburse the United States‘ 11' Settlement at'reements whereby the financial undertakintts of the other governments were funded on credit terms. and 12' arrangements described generally as "cash reimbursement accounts" under which the recipients were to pay the United States in cash at the time the lend-lease goods were provided.

In summary. lend-lease settlement agreements thus far concluded with various eovernments provide for the eventu;-.l payment to the United States of 8157757075560. plus interest. Ac(‘0111102 to data supplied by the 'ITeasury Department as of December 31, 196'), total collections and credits on these accounts amounted to $751,142,976 96. Payments during 1960 totaled 819,401.363.02. Additionally. on the "cash reimbursement accounts" foreiitn itovern~ ments had, as of December 31. 1960, paid 81.301.529.12332 of the 81.326.934.982 11 owed to the United States. A total of $109310 00 was received during 1960.

Under the lend-lease protznim. the United States also loaned 409,782,670 6-1 fine troy ounces of silver to various countries. As of December 31. 1960. 366.066.067.73 fine troy ounces had been returned. Shipments of silver not assayed by the close of 1960 are not included in this fitture.

This report gives an account of the I'it‘tZOtlfttlOIiS with the Soviet Government on a settlement for some of the lend-lease aid received from the United States prior to V-J Day. As menti: tied in the previous report. the discussions. which began on January 11. 1960, were discontinued on January 27. 1960. because there appeared to be no common around for COIitlfitllfifZ. There have been no further developments on thts matter.
