Mar. 2, 1907, ch. 2511 (proviso on p. 1166), 34 Stat. 1166.

The words “Secretary of the Air Force” are substituted for “Secretary of War” because of sections 205(a) and 207(a) and (f) of the Act of July 26, 1947 (ch. 343, 61 Stat. 501, 502), and sections 1 and 53 of the Act of August 10, 1956 (ch. 1041, 70A Stat. 157, 488, 676).
