So much of the amount here- tofore expended by the postmaster for janitor services not covered by the re-formed lease, as may not be charged to the appropriation for the fiscal years affected, because of lapse of appropriation, or otherwise, may be charged to the current appropriation "For miscel- laneous items necessary and incidental to the operation and protection of post offices of the first and second classes, and the business con- ducted in connection therewith, not provided for in other appropri- ations". Hereafter, obligations arising against the United States for janitor services pursuant to the re-formed lease shall be charged to the aforesaid appropriation for the appropriate fiscal year.
