EDITORIAL NOTE: No regulations were assigned to this title, since the Federal Register Act (49 Stat. 500) and the Act of June 19, 1937 (50 Stat. 304), amending section 11 thereof, and providing for this Code, do not extend to regulations issued, prescribed, or promulgated by agencies of the “legislative or judicial branches of the Government."

Part 2.-Presidential proclamations included or cited in the Code of Federal Regulations, classified by number and date

EDITORIAL NOTE: The lists in this chapter are designed to provide an index to the Executive orders and proclamations included or cited in the Code of Federal Regulations. Although these documents are issued by the President, they are usually prepared and administered by the several Federal agencies and form essential portions of the regulations which they administer. The text of the Executive orders and proclamations included in the Code consequently will be found under the various titles and chapters indicated by the subject matter.

It is also to be noted that, in conformity with the provisions of the Act of June 19, 1937 (50 Stat. 304), only Executive orders and proclamations having "general applicability and legal effect” as of June 1, 1938, are included. This requirement has necessarily excluded a large percentage of the Executive orders in effect June 1, 1938. Thus, Executive orders and proclamations designating individuals to office or dealing with matters affecting Federal offices or employees in their capacity as such or concerning the internal administration of the Government will not as a rule be found in this Code. An exception has been made in the case of the general Executive orders respecting the Civil Service, which are represented in Title 5-Administrative Personnel, on account of their widespread interest to the public.

Finally, it should further be noted that the large number of Executive orders respecting the disposition of public lands are listed in tabulations and not included in full, unless they also contain general regulations. This disposition has been made since it is believed that the inclusion in the Code in extenso of Executive orders merely containing grants and land descriptions would involve the use of extensive space to no discernible purpose.
