150         U. S. GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATION MANUAL

  CRiATION AND ArTHOITY.--The Department of the Army, formerly
the War Department, was created by act of Congress approved August
7, 1789 (1 Stat. 49; 5 U. S. C. 181), succeeding a similar department
which was established prior to the adoption of the Constitution. It
was the second executive department to be provided by the Statutes
 of the first Congress under the Constitution. Subsequent acts and
 Executive orders have greatly altered the scope and functions of the
 Department since its inception, as it originally encompassed many
 activities later delegated to the Navy and Interior Departments. The
 National Security Act of 1947 (61 Stat. 499; 5 U. S. C., Sup., 171)
 transferred the Department to the newly created National Military
 Establishment and redesignated it the Department of the Army. The
 Secretary of War assumed the title Secretary of the Army.
     PURPosE.-The Department of the Army is charged with responsi-
 bility for organizing, training, maintaining, and equipping the United
  States Army This responsibility is limited to the preparation of the
 Army for combat, incident to operations on land. The Army of the
 United States consists of the Regular Army, the National Guard of
  the United States, the National Guard while in Federal service, the
  Officers' Reserve Corps, the Organized Reserves, and the Enlisted
  Reserve Corps. These components constitute, in time of peace, a
  framework on which a great national force of well-trained and prop-
  erly equipped men can be quickly built.
      COMMAND WITI-IN THE ARMY.-Command organization
                                                              within both
  the Department     of the Army and the Army is based on the military
  principles of unity and celerity of control. The organization must be
  simple and flexible with clear-cut command channels.
      At the top level of command, prime authority is vested in the Presi-

          NOTE.-The separate statement of organization of the
        Department of the Navy submitted pursuant to section
        3 (a) (1) of the Administrative Procedure Act appears at 14
        F. R. 3124. For amendments see Federal Register indexes.
   CREATION AND A'rTHORITY.-The Department of the Navy and the
office of the Secretary of the Navy were established by act of Con-
gress approved April 30, 1798 (1 Stat. 553; 5 U. S. C. 411-12). For
9 years prior to that date by provision of act of Congress, April 7,
1789, the conduct of naval affairs was under the Secretary for the
Department of War.
   The Board of Navy Commissioners (consisting of three members)
was created by the act of February 7, 1815.
   The act of August 31, 1842 (5 Stat. 579; 5 U. S. C. 429), abolished
the Board of Navy Commissioners and established the Bureau of Navy
Yards and Docks, Bureau of Construction, Equipment, and Repair,
Bureau of Provisions and Clothing, Bureau of Ordnance and Hydrog-
raphy, and Bureau of Medicine and Surgery.
   The act of July 5, 1862 (12 Stat. 510; 5 U. S. C. 429), established
the following organizations: Bureau of Yards and Docks, Bureau of
Equipment and Recruiting (later changed to Bureau of Equipment
and still later abolished), Bureau of Navigation (now Bureau of Naval
Personnel), Bureau of Ordnance, Bureau of Construction and Repair,
Bureau of Steam Engineering (later changed to Bureau of Engineer-
ing, which, with Bureau of Construction and Repair, was abolished
on June 20, 1940, when their respective functions were reassigned to
the newly established Bureau of Ships), Bureau of Provisions and
Clothing (later changed to Bureau of Supplies and Accounts), and
Bureau of Medicine and Surgery.
   The Office of Chief of Naval Operations was established by the act
of March 3,1915 (38 Stat. 929; 5 U.S.C. 422).
   The Bureau of Aeronautics was established by the act of July 12,
 1921 (42 Stat. 140; 5 U. S. C. 439).
    The present organization and distribution of functions within the
 Naval Establishment are derived generally from Public Law 432 (80th
 Cong. 2d Sess.), approved March 5,1948.
             NATIONAL MILITARY ESTABLISHMENT-NAVY                      167
   The Department of the Navy was incorporated in the National Mili-
tary Establishment by the National Security Act of 1947 (61 Stat. 499;
5 U. S. C., Sup., 171).                                                -
   PurPosE.-It is the purpose of the Department to supervise and
maintain a naval establishment in readiness for the performance of
such duties as the President, who is Commander in Chief, may order.
   It is fundamental naval policy to "maintain the Navy as a thor-
oughly integrated entity in sufficient strength on the sea and in the air
to uphold, in conjunction with our other armed forces, our national
policies and interests, to support our commerce and our international
obligations, and to guard the United States including its overseas
possessions and dependencies."
   From this fundamental policy evolve four basic tasks or functions,
the responsibility for which has been distributed within the Navv
Department. These tasks or functions are policy control, naval com-
mand, logistics administration and control, and business adminis-
tration.
                        The Naval Establishment
  -The Naval Establishment consists of three principal parts:
   1. The Navy Department, the executive part of the Naval Estab-
lishment located at the seat of the Government, which comprises the
bureaus, boards, and offices of the Navy Department; the Headquarters
of the Marine Corps; and the Headquarters of the Coast Guard (when
assigned to the Navy).
   2. The Operating Forces are the several fleets, seagoing forces, sea
frontier forces, district forces, and such of the Shore Establishment
of the Navy and other forces and activities as may be assigned to the
operating forces by the President or Secretary of the Navy.
   3. The Shore Establishment, which comprises all other activities
of the Naval Establishment including all shore activities not assigned
to the Operating Forces.

                        Secretary of the Navy
   The Naval Establishment is subject to the general direction and
control of the President of the United States as Commander in Chief
and of the Secretary of Defense as head of the National Military
Establishment. The immediate direction and control, however, are
exercised by the Secretary of the Navy. The Secretary retains the
general responsibility for supervision of all naval affairs while dele-
gating certain responsibilities to his naval and civilian executive assist-
ants. The Secretary is directly responsible for the first of the four
basic tasks or functions of the Navy Department, the task of policy
control; additionally, he is directly concerned with relations with the
public, morale, and budget matters. He communicates directly with
all principal officials and officers of the Naval Establishment, as neces-
sary or desirable, remaining available for direct consultation by such
officials and officers. In the formulation and administration of naval
policies, the Secretary avails himself of the advice and assistance of his
principal executive assistants: the Civilian Executive Assistants, the
Naval Command Assistant, and the Naval Technical Assistants.

 the "business administration" of component activities of the Shore
 Establishment is properly administered by the cognizant bureaus and
 offices of the Navy Department. They are also responsible for collabo-
 rating with and assisting the Chief of Naval Operations in evaluating
 and improving the "business administration" of the Operating Forces.

  Forces due to scarcity of funds, materials, products, facilities, or
  personnel.
      4. Representation of the Navy's procurement requirements before
   other governmental agencies controlling the availability of products,
   materials, and facilities.
      The Civilian Executive Assistants also have the responsibility for
   assuring that the conduct of the Naval Establishment is in accordance
   with law, statute, and Executive order; for the correlation, prepara-
   tion, and presentation of legislation as may be required for the im-
   provement of effectiveness and efficiency; and for the utilization of
   the best legal practices with regard to matters of contract, taxation,
   real estate, etc.

   IMMIGRATION AND NATURALIZATION SERVICE--Pursuant to Reorgani-
zation Plan V, approved June 4, 1940, and effective June 14, 1940, the
Immigration and Naturalization Service was transferred from the
Department of Labor to the Department of Justice.
   The Immigration and Naturalization Service, created by the act of
March 3, 1891 (26 Stat. 1085), administers the immigration and
naturalization laws relating to the admission, exclusion, and deporta-
tion of aliens, and the naturalization of aliens lawfully resident in
the United States. It investigates alleged violations of those laws
and makes recommendations for prosecutions when deemed advisable.
It patrols the borders of the United States to prevent the surreptitious
 entry of aliens into the United States in violation of law.
    It supervises naturalization work in the specific courts designated
by section 301 of the Nationality Act of 1940 (54 Stat. 1140; 8 U. S. C.
 701), to have jurisdiction in such matters. This includes requirement
 of accountings from the clerks of such courts for naturalization fees
collected, investigations-through field officers-of the qualifications
 of citizenship applicants, and representation of the Government at
 all court hearings. It cooperates with the public schools in providing
 citizenship textbooks and other facilities and services for the prepa-
 ration of candidates for naturalization.
     The Immigration and Naturalization Service also registers and
 fingerprints aliens in the United States, as required by title III of the
 Alien Registration Act, 1940, approved June 28, 1940 (54 Stat. 673; 8
 U. S. C. 451-60).

    PURPOSE.-While the original purpose of the Postal System let-
to provide "the best means of establishing       posts for conveying
ters and intelligence through this continent" (Journals of the Con-    was
tinental Congress, May 27, 1775), the Post Office Department
 ultimately   enlarged to include several services. Among the more
                                                                      their
 important developments of the Postal Service, in the order of
 establishment   or authorization, were postage stamps, 1847; registered
 mail, 1855; railway mail service, 1862; city delivery service, 1863;
                                                                     deliv-
 postal money orders, 1864; foreign money orders, 1867; special
 ery, 1885; rural delivery, 1896;  postal savings, 1911; village delivery,
 1912; parcel post, including insurance and collect-on-delivery service,
 1913; and air mail, 1918.
     Benjamin Franklin, who was appointed postmaster at Philadelphia
 in 1737 and Co-Deputy Postmaster General of the British Colonies      first
 in North America in 1753, and who on July 26, 1775, became the
 Postmaster General under the      Continental Congress, is credited by
 historians with having laid much of the foundation for the develop-
  ment of the present United States Postal System. The Constitution
  of the United States, Article I, section 8, provided that "the Congress
  shall have Power . . . To establish Post Offices and post Roads."
     Samuel Osgood was the first Postmaster General under the Con-     time
  stitution, having been appointed September 26, 1789, at which
  there were 75 post offices. From that small beginning the Postal        in
  Service has been developed into what is now the largest business
  the world. During the fiscal year 1948 it employed approximately
  500,000 workers and had an annual pay roll in excess of 1.2 billion    bil-
  dollars. During 1948 the Postal Service handled more than 18
  lion dollars and had    gross receipts in excess of 1.4 billion dollars.
  There are approximately 41,700 post offices in the United States. and
