Naval Group to Study Drastic Revision of Personnel Standards F-y the Associated Press. A complete revamping of per sonnel standards in the Navy, with an eye toward the needs of the post war fleet, will be undertaken soon in Congress. The House Naval Affairs Com mittee—probably after the congres sional Easter vacation—will begin study of legislation virtually set ting up a new' code for the'status of commissioned officers, both in the Regular Navy and the Naval Re serve. Representative Magnuson, Demo crat, of Washington said today it was an outgrowth of many instances of discrimination which turned up because of wartime conditions. One of the facets to be inquired into is what should be done about the Naval Reserve, which has bound ed from a fledgling to a giant, in step with the huge shipbuilding pro gram. The Navy now has a force of ap proximately 2,500.000 officers and men and Mr. Magnuson predicted that by the end of the war 70 per cent will be in the Naval Reserve. “Many of them will want to con tinue in the Navy and we’ll have to have a large force,” he explained. "Something must be wwked out whereby they can continue.” Mr. Magnuson said there have been some discriminations in sal aries and status, sometimes favoring a Reserve officer over a Regular Navy man and vice versa. A code to govern this on a hard and fast basis would have to be written. Old floors reflnlshed. New floors Installed. sSlSSP*' A worlt *uararteed. ATFIRST ^ SIGN OF A ■■ C$666 TABLETS.

Every day they remain away from duty longer than is necessary is a damning charge to all of us and an irreparable loss to our cause."
