The United States Shipping Board in its annual report today declared that the Government was under obligation to award ocean mail contracts to the purchasers of Shipping Board lines. This recommendation is in direct contradiction to the Interdepartmental Commission, which held that contracts should go to the lowest bidders, regard less of whether they were former Gov ernment vessels. The board stated that although it had been careful to avoid establishing ship services in competition with exist ing American flag lines, American op erators of foreign flag tonnage had un derbid a purchaser of Shipping Board vessels. The board reported that the end of the fiscal year (June 30), it had dis posed of all but 552 of the. original fleet of 3.400 vessels left It at the end of the war. Os these 233 were report ed in active service and 319 laid up. During the year the board sold for ap proximately $29,000,000 a total of 266 vessels, including 11 passenger, 168 cargo, 3 refrigerator ships, 9 tankers and 75 miscellaneous vessels. Sale of the United States Lines for $16,082,000 was the principal item. The board noted material reduction of the administrative costs of the Mer chant Fleet Corporation, attributed to rapid liquidation of the fleet. The Fleet Corporation’s total operat ing loss was placed at $13,665,000 or $2,614,000 less than for the preceding year. During the year the board advanced on construction loans out of the $250,- 000,000 fund set up by the Jones- White act, $6,728,790, and approved ap i plications for $14,524,540.
