CHAPTER 82

MISCELLANEOUS ESTABLISHMENTS

1. The Joint Board

The Joint Board is composed of the Chief of Staff and Deputy Chief of Staff of the Army, the Chief and Assistant Chief of Naval Operations, the Assistant Chief of Staff, Army War Plans Division, and the Director, War Plans Division of Naval Operations. It is concerned with strategic questions and large problems affecting the combined services. 2. United States Geographic Board

The United States Geographic Board passes on all unsettled questions concerning geographic names arising in the departments, and determines, changes, and fixes place names within the United States and its insular possessions. All names suggested by any officer of the government must be referred to the board before publication. Its decisions are accepted by the departments as standard authority. 3. World War Foreign Debt Commission

The World War Foreign Debt Commission, composed of the Secretary of the Treasury, as Chairman, and seven other members appointed by the President, by and with the consent of the Senate, and a Secretary, was created February 9, 1922, “to refund or convert obligations of foreign governments held by the United States of America and for other purposes."

The usual procedure is that preliminary discussions are held by the Secretary of the Treasury or the Secretary of State (who is one of the members of the commission appointed by the President) with the representative of a foreign debtor government, and when such discussions reach a concrete issue the situation is presented to the entire commission. An agreement for refunding must be approved by the President and the Congress. The Act of February 28, 1923,1 states the terms and amount of the refunded British debt. The Act of January 21, 1925,1 extends the life of the commission to February 9, 1927.

On May 15, 1925, the principal amount of obligations of foreign governments held by the United States Treasury, with interest accrued thereon and unpaid, up to and including the last interest period prior to May 16, 1925, and payments made on account of principal and interest, appear as follows:

1 Act Feb. 9, 1922 (42 Stat. 363), as amended by Act Feb. 28, 1923 (42 Stat. 1325), amended by Act Jan. 21, 1925 (Pub. No. 327, 68th Cong.).
