PAY OF NAVAL PERSONNEL

PAY AND ALLOWANCES OF ACTIVE OFFICERS

Admiral Conard. The first project covers pay and allowances, officers, active; “(a) Pay, base, plus longevity, officers, active."

This item covers base pay plus longevity of officers on active duty. Officers with less than 30 years' service receive an increase of 5 percent every 3 years. The operation of the various economy measures changed the average rate of pay so that it is no longer a reliable basis for estimating. This estimate is made by adding length of service and estimated promotions to the present members. In that connection, the following table is submitted:

Increase 1939 over 1938 appropriation

726, 714 1 The deduction of 6 is made because of reimbursement ($18,806) received from the Veterans Administration. 2 Base.

ANALYSIS OF INCREASE

Increase in numbers, 241 at $3,124.694+
Decrease in rate 9,939 at $2.63—-.

$7:13, -20), 3

Total.-

7:26. 714 Mr. UMSTEAD. I notice that under this item you are asking for an increase over the 1938 appropriation of $726,714.

Admiral CONARD. Yes, sir.
Mr. UMSTEAD. What is the basis of that increase, Admiral?

Admiral CONARD. The increase in that amount is due, first, to ar increase in numbers of 241, at an average pay of $3,124.69, approxi mately. There is a decrease in the rate of the 9,939 previously paid of $2.65, making a net addition of $726,714.

Mr. U'MSTEAD. Do you mean by that statement that 241 additions officers are expected to enter the service in the fiscal year 1939 at an average pay of $3,124.69 each?

Admiral COXARD. There will be an average of 211 additional offi cers during the year.

Mr. UMSTEAD. I believe that the pay of officers is regulated by statute.

Admiral CONARD. Yes, sir.

Mr. UMSTEAD. If they are put in the service, their pay is auto matic.

Admiral CONARD. Absolutely.

Mr. UMSTEAD. Explain why there is a decrease in the pay of 9,939 officers of $2.65 each?

Admiral CONARD. There are officers coming in at lower rates of vay, or new officers, and, therefore, the resultant average of pay or the original number is somewhat lowered.

Mr. PLUMLEY. $753,050 is what they would be entitled to receive, rut they do not, in fact, receive it. Admiral CONARD. No, sir; the average of new officers receive that

Of course, these figures are the result of computations and ecomputations of what the Navy will cost during the coming fiscal rear.

PAY OF MIDSHIPMEN

Admiral CONARD. This item covers pay of midshipmen at $780 per annum. The estimated numbers are averages for the year furushed by the Bureau of Navigation. The detailed statement of the estimate is as follows:

Pi (6) Pay, midshipmen

$1, 726, 920 1, 785, 420

*$1, 785, 420

1, 726, 920

Decrease, 75 at $780.-

58, 500

* Base.

It is estimated that 75 less midshipmen on an average will be in the Naval Academy in 1939 than were covered by the appropriation for 1938.

The average numbers are determined by taking the number in each class and applying one-half of the expected annual attrition for rach class (2 percent for first class; 4 percent for second class; 11 percent for third class; 14 percent for fourth class) and then taking the sum of the average in each class thus determined.

Mr. C'MSTEAD. In connection with this item for pay of midshipmen, I notice there is a decrease of $58,500 under the appropriation for the year 1938. This decrease is caused simply by the fact that there will be an average of 75 fewer midshipmen at the Naval Academy during the fiscal year 1939 than during the fiscal year 1938. Admiral CONARD. That is correct.

ADDITIONAL PAY FOR ACTIVE OFFICERS ON AVIATION DUTY

Mr. I'MSTEAD. The next subhead covers additional pay and allowabres of officers for aviation duty.

Admiral Conard. Yes, sir. The additional pay for aviation duty is 50 percent of the regular pay, except as to certain officers detailed
