The Army requested a decision as to the propriety of payment of a voucher stated in favor of Laclair D. Schulze, first lieutenant, Air Service, Advance Officer, Sixth Division, 'Round the World Flight, for reimbursement of expenses incurred in entertaining officials of foreign governments and other individuals in foreign countries while making arrangements for the American 'Round the World Flight, in the amount of $497. The payment is proposed to be made under "Air Service, Army, 1924-1925" as authorized by the act of June 7, 1924, 43 Stat. 491. Because only certificates attesting to the expenditures and not actual receipts were tendered with the voucher, the Army was in doubt as to the propriety of payment out of appropriated funds.

GAO found that the act did not authorize reimbursement for such expenditures and payment of the voucher was denied.
