This chapter details the start of Guam's rehabilitation in 1948 as reported in the pages of Guam Echo. For instance, the first two pages of the January issue were devoted to “The 1948 Outlook on Guam Legislation.” It was reported that Representative Fred Crawford believed that identical Crawford and Cordon Concurrent Resolutions, introduced in the House and Senate on December 19, 1947, had the best chance of passing. Those resolutions would establish a joint congressional committee to make an on-the-spot study of the Trust Territory and all other Pacific islands subject to U.S. authority. The Echo also featured the new “Code of Guam,” published by the U.S. Government Printing Office. In the February 28, 1948 issue, the lead story in Guam Echo revealed that the Bureau of the Budget recommended that $1,600,000 be allocated for land on Guam to be acquired by the Navy for military purposes.
