REPORT OF I'HE CHIEF OF THE BUREAU OF

NAVIGATION.

DEPARTMENT OF THE Navy,

BUREAU OF NAVIGATION,

Washington, D. C., October 26, 1915. The following report of the work of the Bureau of Navigation during the past year, together w`th recommendations, is respectfully submitted :

PERSONNEL.

Section 9 of the personnel act of March 3, 1899, which provided for the enforced retirement of a number of officers annually, has been repealed, and such effect as this section had in the prevention of stagnation in promotion has now been lost. Prior to the enactment of this law captains were promoted to rear admiral at the ages of 60 and 61, and some within a few months of the statutory retiring age of 62. In consequence the retired list of rear admirals was greatly increased by the retirement of officers who reached the age of 62 with very little active service as rear admiral. A return to this condition is now inevitable unless Congress relieves the situation by enacting legislation to take the place of that repealed.

The personnel board appointed last year, after a careful study of the personnel situation, made its report on January 23, 1915. This board has been directed to continue its studies during the past year and make further recommendations which may, in the light of subsequent events, appear desirable. The final report of the board will be ready for the consideration of Congress when that body convenes in December next.
