The Army Medical Reorganization Bill passed the House of Representatives Monday, March 16, under suspension of the rules, by a vote of 126 for and 15 against. The bill passed the Senate as originally drafted. Owing to changes made in the House committee the bill now goes to conference. These changes are, with one exception, amendments which are entirely satisfactory to the friends of the bill. The reduction in the number of medical officers of the higher grades, however, seriously modifies the proposed plan of reorganization. It is earnestly to be hoped, therefore, that the original provision of the bill in this respect will be adhered to.
