      In the section, the words ''When the term of office . . . ends''
    are substituted for ''whose terms of office have expired or shall
    expire'' for consistency and to eliminate unnecessary words.  The
    words ''may continue to serve'' are substituted for ''The Secretary
    of the Treasury is authorized and directed to pay'', ''and who have
    been performing or shall perform the duties of their respective
    offices after the date of such expiration'', and ''the salary,
    compensation, fees, or emoluments authorized or provided by law in
    each case for the respective incumbents of the offices'' because of
    25 Op. Atty. Gen. 636 (1906) and for consistency with other titles
    of the United States Code. The words ''until a successor is
    appointed and qualified'' are substituted for ''before the
    appointment and qualification of their successors'' and
    31:1016(last sentence) for consistency with other titles of the
    Code.
