Bureau of Pensions, Washington, D. C.

The report contains a discussion of the provisions of the fund as provided under the act as recently amended. It also reports upon the progress which is being made in the detailed valuation required by law to be prepared as of June 30, 1930.

As ex-officio member of the board from the establishment of the fund in 1920, he never failed in his consistent efforts to do everything within his power to improve the fund, and to recommend changes in the law and in the administration thereof when
