former Secretary Meyer, Secretary of the Navy Josephus Daniels has effected what he considered a refor

as masters of the professional work under their direction. The "council" meets every Thursday in the
Secretary's office or oftener on call. This picture was taken of the first meeting. Left to right are: Sur
geon Richard C. Holcomb, acting Chief of the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery; Admiral Joseph Strauss,
Chief of the Bureau af ordnance; Admiral W. S. Benson, Chief of the Bureau of Operations; Civil En
