                      Historical and Revision Notes

    Based on title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Sec. 48 (Mar. 3, 1911, ch. 231, 
Sec. 211, 36 Stat. 1150; Oct. 22, 1913, ch. 32, 38 Stat. 219).
    Word ``actions'' was substituted for ``cases and proceedings'', in 
view of Rule 2 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
    A provision authorizing intervention by the United States was 
omitted. The United States, under the provisions of this section, is a 
necessary and indispensable original party, and hence intervention is 
unnecessary. (See Lambert Run Coal Co. v. Baltimore & O. R. Co., 1922, 
42 S.Ct. 349, 258 U.S. 377, 66 L.Ed. 671.)
