ALTERATIONS AND REPAIRS TO ARMY AND NAVY HOSPITALS, ALTERA

TIONS AND IMPROVEMENTS TO NATIONAL SOLDIERS' HOMES, AND OPENING NEW PUBLIC HEALTH SERVICE HOSPITALS.

Mr. ROUTSONG. The other items that are included in this total estimate are alterations and repairs to Army hospitals, $40,000; alterations and repairs to Navy hospitals, $35,000; alterations and improvements to national soldiers' homes, $500,000; and opening new Public Health Service hospitals, $2,000,000.

The CHAIRMAN. That is for Public Health Service hospitals? Mr. ROUTSONG. Yes, sir. For dental services, including dental clinics, $2,179,614.26.

The CHAIRMAN. Is that independent of the hospital service or is it included in the hospital service?

Mr. ROUTSONG. That is not included in the $4.64 per diem cost. Operation of dispensaries, $2,750,000.

Mr. ANTHONY. Is that just for the occasional treatment of veterans ?

The CHAIRMAN. That is for medicines, is it not?
Mr. ROUTSONG. Yes, sir; and for outside treatment.
Col. PATTERSON. That is for treatment outside of the hospitals ?

MEDICAL PERSONNEL DETAILED TO VETERANS' BUREAU.

Mr. ROUTSONG. Then, it is estimated that the medical personnel detailed to the Veterans’ Bureau will amount to $900,000 ?

The CHAIRMAN. What do you mean by medical personnel detailed to the Veterans' Bureau? Do you mean that you have that many men on your pay roll ?

Col. PATTERSON. We have at the present time in the bureau a number of reserve officers of the Public Health Service who have been detailed to the headquarters of the bureau largely for the purpose of rating claims. In addition to that, we have among the personnel in the districts a large number of medical officers on duty.

The CHAIRMAN. Public health officers ?
Col. PATTERSON. Yes, sir.
The CHAIRMAN. How many ? $900,000 would pay a lot of them,
Col. PATTERSON. Yes, sir; there are a total of approximately 287.
The CHAIRMAN. What are their duties?
Col. PATTERSON. Their duties are varied in the districts.
Mr. KELLEY. Give the number as nearly as you can.
Col. PATTERSON. I can give you the number exactly in the record.

Mr. KELLEY. Give the number and their rank, with a statement of what they are doing.

Col. PATTERSON. That is, where they are on duty ?
Mr. KELLEY. No; what they are doing.

Col. PATTERSON. We will specify their duties, or the duties they are assigned to. I might simply say generally that the medical officers in charge of districts, or in four or five districts, are public health officers.
