"The president," snitl Mrs. Bass, •"has been restored to health by the -arest cure, and-when I left Washington ;3t was known to a few of his friends -tthat within the week he will go to his "White House offices for the first time .-since he became 111 and take up his —active duties;" Declares Knight Board and .Secretary of the Navy Ju'stified-in Changing Medal Awards—To Probe Con• ditions at Newport. 'Washington, Jan. 21.—Admiral Henry T. Mayo, commander in chief of .the United States fleet during, the war, told, the senate committee inves- :igating naval wards that his letter fo Secretary Daniels on December 23, asserting ..that the Knight board did not give sufficient consideration to service at' sea, particularly to the du- ies and responsibilities of members of he staff of the commander in'chief of he fleet, was not to be considered in ny-sense one of protest. He read Hie etter at the request of Chairman lale. • Admiral' Mayo took a view' dinme- rically opposed to that expressed by Sear Admiral Sinis, who told the sub-' ommlttee that the Knight board In ranting awards gave too little consid- ratinn to the records of ofliciiils who -jrved on shore. The navy department lade •ublic Admiral Mayo's letter on he subject several days ago. General Charges Deferred. Charges made by Admiral Sims that ( ie navy department did not co-operate fully with the allies during the jvar are being deferred for'siitTseiiuent investigation. Admiral Mayo said Ms letter was written after practically all of his' recommendations had'been changed or disapproved by the board or Secretary Daniels. "I made very few-recommendations for awards," he^said, "mostly in the cases of my perlonal staff, force commanders and commanders operating independently. . Captain Jackson was the only member of my staff.. I believe, who finally received any decoration at all." Testifying (hat Admiral Sims was "supposed to be" under his command during the war, Admiral Muyo said that in order to facilitate matters Ad-1 miral Sims did not report to him, but I directly to the navy department. Lack of well-defined policy for awarding naval honors may have had a bearing on the decoration situation, Admiral Mayo said. "I do not say I was satisfied with the result of the action of the boar< and the secretary," added Admira Mayo, "but I do say that they hao .the right to take such action, as thej wished and to assume the respoust bility." Staff Had Real Duty. Admiral Mayo said he had written Secretary Daniels because he' fel there had not been sufficient realiza Uon of the value of staff duty and that this might cause officers to'avole staff assignments. "There has been a popular idea,' he said, "that the chief function of the staff is go along and look preffj when the Old Man goes on a call. That is not true. They are hard working, efficient men." Senator Pittnnm (Dem.), Nevada, asked if Admiral Mayo believed there should be a policy that oflicers who lost their'ships should be honored. Such a policy wnuld not be a goo tiling for the service, Admiral Mayo said, but added that in cases where the officer's conduct {luring and after This store is proud to announce that it has secured the services of k trained foot specialist who will be here .,..-" .'''•. •"'•••.
