F. ALLEN, UNDER THE APPROPRIATION "PAY AND ALLOWANCES, COAST GUARD, 1938.'

THE CITED EXECUTIVE ORDER NO. 6169, IS, IN PART, AS FOLLOWS:

NOW, THEREFORE, BY VIRTUE OF THE AUTHORITY VESTED IN ME BY SAID ACTS OF CONGRESS OR OTHERWISE, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED THAT SUCH WARRANT OFFICERS OF THE COAST GUARD, NOT EXCEEDING 170, AS THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY MAY DETERMINE, ARE HEREBY ATTACHED TO THE WAR DEPARTMENT FOR DUTY IN CONNECTION WITH NEW PUBLIC WORKS PROJECTS OR THE CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS, AND ARE ORDERED TO REPORT TO THE SECRETARY OF WAR FOR DUTY UPON RECEIPT OF WRITTEN ORDERS FROM THE SECRETARY OF WAR.

THESE OFFICERS SHALL BE CALLED BY THE SECRETARY OF WAR AS THE NEEDS OF PUBLIC WORKS PROJECTS OR THE CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS MAY DETERMINE * * *. WHEN THESE OFFICERS ARE ORDERED TO SUCH DUTY, THEY SHALL BE PLACED UPON THE PAY ROLLS OF THE PUBLIC WORKS PROJECTS OR THE CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS AND SHALL THEN BE PAID FROM THE APPROPRIATE FUNDS ALLOCATED. * * *

THE ACT OF MARCH 31, 1933, 48 STAT. 22, UNDER WHICH THE CITED EXECUTIVE ORDER WAS PROMULGATED, AUTHORIZED THE PRESIDENT TO UTILIZE SUCH EXISTING DEPARTMENTS OR AGENCIES AS HE MAY DESIGNATE, BUT NO SPECIAL PROVISION WAS MADE FOR PAYMENT OF OTHER THAN THE STATUTORY PAY AND ALLOWANCES TO THE COAST GUARD OFFICERS DETAILED TO EMERGENCY CONSERVATION WORK, AND THE WELL -ESTABLISHED RULE IS THAT IN THE ABSENCE OF SPECIAL PROVISION THEREFOR THESE OFFICERS ARE ENTITLED TO THE PAY AND ALLOWANCES PRESCRIBED BY LAW AND REGULATIONS FOR THEM UNDER THE SAME DUTY SITUATION IN THE COAST GUARD. SEE 1 COMP. GEN. 98. THE RIGHT OF THE OFFICER TO TRANSPORTATION OF HIS AUTHORIZED BAGGAGE ALLOWANCE AS PRESCRIBED BY COAST GUARD LAWS AND REGULATIONS APPEARS FROM THE FACTS HEREIN STATED TO HAVE BEEN RECOGNIZED IN CONNECTION WITH THE PERMANENT CHANGES OF STATION MADE UNDER HIS PRIOR ORDERS DETAILING HIM FOR DUTY WITH THE WAR DEPARTMENT AND IN TRANSFERRING HIM IN THAT SERVICE TO THE CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS. HOWEVER, UPON RELIEF FROM ASSIGNMENT WITH THE CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS THE EFFECT GIVEN THE CITED PARAGRAPH 71, CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS REGULATIONS, IS TO LIMIT THE CHANGE OF STATION BAGGAGE ALLOWANCE TO 200 POUNDS AT THE EXPENSE OF THE CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS THE EFFECT GIVEN THE CITED PARAGRAPH 71, CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS APPROPRIATION, AND IT IS PROPOSED ON THE VOUCHER SUBMITTED TO REIMBURSE THE OFFICER FOR THE BALANCE OF HIS AUTHORIZED CHANGE OF STATION ALLOWANCE UNDER THE COAST GUARD APPROPRIATION. OBVIOUSLY THE OFFICER WAS NOT, UNDER THE ORDERS ISSUED TO HIM, TRAVELING ON DUTY IN CONNECTION WITH THE CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS SO AS TO AUTHORIZE A PART OF THE COST OF THE TRANSPORTATION OF HIS HOUSEHOLD GOODS UNDER THE APPROPRIATION FOR THAT SERVICE AND IN CONNECTION WITH THE COAST GUARD, SO AS TO AUTHORIZE THE REMAINDER OF THE COST FROM FUNDS APPROPRIATED FOR THAT SERVICE. WARRANT OFFICER HEARNE WAS TAKEN FROM THE COAST GUARD FOR THE PERFORMANCE OF DUTY WITH THE CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS AND ALL TRAVEL IN CONNECTION WITH SUCH DETAIL, INCLUDING TRAVEL IN RETURNING HIM TO HIS COAST GUARD STATION, WAS TRAVEL ON DUTY IN CONNECTION WITH THE CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS. SEE 8 COMP. GEN. 157; A-42153, JUNE 6, 1932. ACCORDINGLY, NO EXPENSES INCIDENT TO TRAVEL PURSUANT TO THE ORDERS OF JUNE 8, 1938, ARE PAYABLE FROM COAST GUARD FUNDS. FURTHERMORE, THERE BEING NO SPECIFIC PROVISION OF LAW AUTHORIZING PAY AND ALLOWANCES OTHER THAN THOSE PRESCRIBED FOR HIM BY LAW IN THE COAST GUARD, PARAGRAPH 71D OF THE CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS REGULATIONS WAS WITHOUT EFFECT TO LIMIT HIS CHANGE OF STATION ALLOWANCE TO 200 POUNDS. HE WAS ENTITLED ON THE CHANGE OF STATION DIRECTED BY THE ORDERS OF JUNE 8, 1938, FROM FORT OGLETHORPE, GA., TO PANAMA CITY, FLA., TO HAVE HIS AUTHORIZED CHANGE OF STATION BAGGAGE ALLOWANCE, AS PRESCRIBED BY COAST GUARD LAWS AND REGULATIONS, SHIPPED AT GOVERNMENT EXPENSE, AND THE PAYMENT THEREOF BY REASON OF HIS DETAIL IS PAYABLE FROM CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS FUNDS. REQUEST HAVING BEEN MADE FOR SUCH TRANSPORTATION AND IT HAVING BEEN REFUSED, THERE WAS NO OTHER ALTERNATIVE THAN TO SHIP AT PERSONAL EXPENSE, AND UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES REIMBURSEMENT IS AUTHORIZED OF THE AMOUNT PROPERLY CHARGEABLE AGAINST THE UNITED STATES. AS THE COAST GUARD APPROPRIATION IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR THE PAYMENT OF THIS CLAIM, IT WILL BE WITHDRAWN FROM PREAUDIT AND WILL BE SETTLED AS A DIRECT CLAIM IN THIS OFFICE. THE PAYMENTS MADE IN THE ACCOUNTS OF CHIEF DISBURSING OFFICER G. F. ALLEN IN THE AMOUNTS OF $10.15 AND $54 FOR EXPENSES INCURRED IN CONNECTION WITH THE TRANSPORTATION OF WARRANT OFFICER HEARNE'S HOUSEHOLD GOODS INCIDENT TO CHANGE OF STATION DIRECTED BY ORDERS OF JUNE 8, 1938, HAVING BEEN ERRONEOUSLY MADE UNDER THE APPROPRIATION "PAY AND ALLOWANCES, COAST GUARD, 1938," TRANSFER SETTLEMENT WILL ISSUE CHARGING CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS FUNDS.
