                      Historical and Revision Notes

                            1948 Act

    Based on title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Sec. 44 (Oct. 22, 1913, ch. 32, 
38 Stat. 220.)
    Word ``actions'' was substituted for ``cases,'' in view of rule 2 of 
the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
    The exception as to procedure in the infliction of criminal 
punishment was omitted as unnecessary, as Title 18, U.S.C., Crimes and 
Criminal Procedure, and the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure govern 
procedure in criminal matters.
    Changes were made in phraseology.

                            1949 Act

    This section corrects, in section 2321 of title 28, U.S.C., the

Commerce Commission other than for the''.
    Subsec. (c). Pub. L. 93-584 designated existing second par. as
