A sjiecial sub-t-oiiimiuee of Die House Naval Aflnirs C'ommittei.' is currently begimiinx lieni-lngs on two pl:ns for navy reoriiiuir/.i- tlon—one stibmltled by Con^ir-ss- itiiii Vinson of Georgia, i-luiirman of the Naval Affairs Commute?, the other by Con^rraunfin of Minnesota, the ranking Kcpuo- llcan on the committee. These bills tllifer wlacly in details, bat both are nimeti nl tin: same defect — a system under which t-he navy lacks n central professional authority and does its work through a set of almost completely Independent, bureaus.

'the nine bureaus through which the navy's rouli >e work is done are not 'responsible to him nl all. Each one is headed by a rear admiral who is nami-d' by Ihe President; each bureau has its o,'.'n appropriation.

Some months Inter the design is finished, iyionmvnHc, advances in r iKineorint and gunnery .have) been made. !
