HOWEVER, SINCE IT IS ANTICIPATED THAT THE RESULTS OF THIS TEST WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE UNTIL MARCH 1954, IT WAS AGREED AT A MEETING OF THE JOINT COMMITTEE ON MILITARY PAY PROCEDURES THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF THE AIR FORCE SHOULD REQUEST APPROVAL TO EXTEND THE PERIOD OF THE TEST OPERATION. THE PROPOSED TEST OPERATION FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF THE ARMY WAS APPROVED BY THIS OFFICE IN LETTER DATED APRIL 2, 1953, B- 61937.

IN VIEW OF THE ABOVE, THE PERIOD FOR TESTING THE PROPOSED PLAN AND THE PROPOSED FORMS CITED IN LETTER OF AUGUST 18, 1952, IS HEREBY EXTENDED TO JUNE 30, 1954, WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT THE RESULTS OF SUCH TESTS WILL BE EVALUATED, AND IF ADOPTED FOR PERMANENT USE, WILL BE RESUBMITTED TO THIS OFFICE FOR FORMAL APPROVAL OF THE PLAN AND FORMS.
