-------------------------------

In subsections (a), (b), (d), (f), (g), (h), (i), and (j), the

rules stated in the corresponding clauses of the first proviso of

the first paragraph, and the last proviso of the last paragraph, of

10:1393, are restated to make positive the authority of the persons

described in those subsections to wear the uniform prescribed for

the appropriate organization or activity.

In subsection (c), the words ''bear the title'', in 34:43g(i),

applicable only to retired officers of the Navy Nurse Corps, are

made applicable to other retired officers, to make explicit what

has heretofore been implicit, that a retired officer may continue

to bear the title of his retired grade.

In subsection (e), the words between the second and third

semicolons of the first proviso of the first paragraph of 10:1393

are omitted as superseded by 10:1028b and 34:399d, which authorize

the wearing of the uniform by members who are discharged honorably

or under honorable conditions. The words ''when authorized by

regulations prescribed by'' are substituted for the words

''occasions authorized by regulations of''.

In subsection (f), the words ''while portraying a member of the

Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine Corps, an actor in a theatrical or

motion-picture production'' are substituted for the words ''any

person from wearing the uniform of the United States Army, Navy, or

Marine Corps, in any playhouse or theater or in moving-picture

films while actually engaged in representing therein a military or

naval character''.

In subsection (g), the word ''resident'' is substituted for the

word ''members'', since the word ''members'' related to members of

the now disbanded National Home for disabled volunteer soldiers to

which were admitted ''members'' of an organization called the

''Disabled Volunteer Soldiers''. The words ''veterans' home'' are

substituted for the words ''national home for veterans'', since

there are now no ''national homes'' administered by the Veterans'

Administration.

In subsection (h), the words ''authorized and'' and ''for wear

during such course of instruction'' are omitted as surplusage. The

word ''naval'' is omitted as covered by the word ''military''. The

words ''Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine Corps'' are substituted

for the words ''military or naval authorities''. The words ''that

armed force'' are substituted for the words ''such military or

naval authorities''.

In subsection (i), the words ''Air Force school'' are substituted

for the words ''Air Force advanced flying schools or Air Force

service schools''. The words ''in such manner'' are omitted as

surplusage.
