subchapter III of chapter 53 of title 5" are substituted for "the

civil-service and classification laws", and the words "chapter 33

of title 5" are substituted for "the civil-service laws", because

of section 7(b) of the Act of September 6, 1966 (Public Law 89-554,

80 Stat. 631), the first section of which enacted Title 5, United

States Code. In subclause (A), the words "in the United States" are

1949 Act. The Classification Act of 1949 was repealed by section

8(a) of the Act of September 6, 1966 (Public Law 89-554, 80 Stat.

632), the first section of which enacted title 5, United States

Code. The Classification Act of 1949 was reenacted as chapter 51

and subchapter III of chapter 53 of title 5. See especially 5:5102

and 5103.

In subsection (c)(1), the words "Mutual Educational and Cultural

Exchange Act of 1961 (22 U.S.C. 2451 et seq.)" are substituted for

"section 32(b)(2) of the Surplus Property Act of 1944, as amended"

because of section 111(a)(1) and (c) of the Mutual Educational and

Cultural Exchange Act of 1961 (Public Law 87-257, 75 Stat. 538).

The words "Foreign Service Buildings Act, 1926" are substituted for

"Foreign Service Buildings Act of May 7, 1926, as amended" because

of section 8 of the Foreign Service Buildings Act (22:299). The

words "(including section 295b of title 22)" are omitted as

executed and obsolete.
