1 The fiures given for each year reflect actions taken and the status of cases as of the end of the most recent fiscal year with respect to cases referred to the Department of Justice during the year specified. For example, convictions obtained in fiscal 1965 with respect to cases referred during fiscal 1964 are included under fiscal 1964. While the table shows only 3 convictions under 1965, the total number of convictions for cases referred during that year and prior years was 106, as noted in the text of this report.

The number of defendants in a case is sometimes increased by the Department of Justice over the number against whom prosecution was recommended by the Commission. Also more than one indictment may result from a single reference. 3 See Table 10 for breakdown of pending cases.

Thirty-five of these references involving 116 proposed defendants, and 18 prior references involving 89 proposed defendants, were still being processed by the Department of Justice as of the close of the fiscal year. 8 779 of these cases have been completed as to i or more defendants. Convictions have been obtained

in 629 or 81 percent of such cases. Only 150 or 19 percent of such cases have resulted in acquittals or dismissals as to all defendants; this includes numerous cases in which indictments were dismissed without trial because of the death of defendants or for other administrative reasons. See note 5, infra.

Includes 80 defendants who died after indictment.
