COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA, 
THE ADJUTANT-GENERAL'S OFFICE, 

Harrisburg, January 31, 1921. 

BULLETIN,! 
No. 1. | 

The following circular letters of the Militia Bureau, War De- 
partment, Washington, D. C, are published for the information 
and guidance of all concerned : 



WAR DEPARTMENT 
MILITIA BUREAU 
Washington 

January 8, 1921. 

CIRCULAR LETER No. 1. 

From: The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of 

Hawaii and Porto Rico, and the District of Columbia 
Militia. 

Subject: Tables of Organization under the Act of June 4, 1920 
for the National Guard. 

1. There are forwarded herewith certain Tables of Organiza- 
tion governing units of the National Guard organized under the 
act of June 4, 1920. Additional Tables will be forwarded as soon 
as prepared without request therefor. Correspondence on this sub- 
ject will only serve to delay the issue of other Tables, since the 
clerical force in the Militia Bureau is very limited. 

Each of the Tables will set forth two separate compositions 
based on the strengths as follows : 

. (a) Composition based on a strength of fifty enlisted men 
prescribed by law as the minimum strength for Federal RECOG- 
NITION only. 

(b) Composition based on the MAINTENANCE strength (65 
enlisted men for most units) prescribed by regulations. 

(c) In addition there is indicated in each Table the prescribed 
enlisted peace strength for the corresponding unit in the Regular 
Army this figure being fixed by law as the PRESCRIBED MINI- 
MUM strength for units of the National Guard, and must be 
attained. 

2. The column indicating the composition between 50 and 64 
men per organization for recognition will become obsolete on June 
30. 1921. The column showing the strength for maintenance, 
sixty-five and upward per organization, will govern after July 1. 
1921.

3. Attention is called to the fact that the prescribed minimum 
strength may be made up of active members in each organization 
or may be made up of sixty-five active members and the 
balance' "Assigned Reservists." (See Circular Letters Nos. 62 and 
76, Militia Bureau, 1920.) 

4. The noncommissioned officers are classified according to 
grades and specialists according to ratings ; these grades and rat- 
ings are noted in the Tables furnished. It should be noted that 
where the Regular Army peace strength is sufficient to justify it 
the last column in each Table shows the composition of the unit 
for strengths between 65 men and 80 per cent, of its prescribed 
enlisted strength in the Regular Army. Except as otherwise noted 
in the Militia Bureau Tables whenever an organization reaches a 
strength in its active members equal to eighty per cent, of the 
prescribed minimum for the Regular Army, that organization can 
appoint noncommissioned officers and give the ratings to all special- 
ists as prescribed in the peace table strength for the Regular Army. 
Wherever the Militia Bureau Tables fail to indicate the duties of 
noncommissioned officers and specialists, these men may be assigned 
duties selected from those assigned to the corresponding grades and 
ratings in the Regular Army. 

5. Whenever an organization falls temporarily below the re- 
quired minimum enlisted strength, it will not be necessary to de- 
mote or disrate the surplus noncommissioned officers and specialists 
not provided for in the Tables governing the composition of the 
unit at reduced strength. Such surplus noncommissioned officers 
and specialists will be absorbed by discharges or routine separa- 
tions, and the vacancies thus created will not be filled until the 
unit has again enrolled the required minimum strength. 

6. Attention is invited to the following points: 

(a) For units with a prescribed minimum enlisted strength of 
less than 50 men, the Regular Army Tables will govern. 

(b) Under the provisions of General Orders No. 36, War De- 
partment, June 19, 1920, the number of privates, first class, ap- 
pointed in any organization must_ not exceed 50% of the number 
of privates in the same organization. 

(c) Buglers which were rated as specialists in the 6th class in 
General Orders No. 36, no longer have a specialist rating. Buglers 
may be appointed from the privates, first class, or privates but 
they receive no extra compensation. 

7. Attention is also invited to the fact that wherever the Tables 
prescribed for the Regular Army indicate "lieutenants," this term 
is used because the Regular Army is at present decidedly short of 
second lieutenants, due to the great number of vacancies in that 
grade, and second lieutenants are, therefore, not available. Since 
this condition does not exist in the National Guard, the Tables 
issued by the Militia Bureau indicate the proper quota of first 
lieutenants and second lieutenants for National Guard units. 

8. It is enjoined upon all to read these Tables carefully and 
to endeavor to follow them without question or evasion. It is 
believed that a careful study of the Tables, together with this letter, 
will answer any of the questions which may arise, thus avoiding 
unnecessary correspondence with the Militia Bureau.

CIRCULAR LETTER No. 4. 
From: The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To : The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of 

Hawaii and Porto Rico, and the District of Columbia 
Militia. 

Subject : Approved Regulations concerning Band Leaders, Na- 
tional Guard. 

I. The following advanced copy of Regulations to be included 
in the revised edition of the National Guard Regulations relative 
to band leaders in the National Guard has been approved by the 
Secretary of War and is furnished for the information and guidance 
of all concerned : 

1. In time of peace, the appointment of warrant officers 
in the National Guard will be limited to band leaders. Until 
Congress shall have provided funds for the payment of war- 
rant officers, National Guard, and fixed the rate of pay for 
armory drill, Band Leaders National Guard, will be ap- 
pointed as master sergeants (Class 1, Enlisted Men, section 
4b, act of June 4, 1920) and will be paid accordingly for 
both encampment service and armory drills.

[Bui. No. 1.] 



2. Band leaders (warrant officers) of National Guard 
regiments will be appointed on recommendation of the regi- 
mental commanders, by the Governors of the respective 
states and territories where the corresponding regimental 
headquarters is included in the official allocation of troops. 
In the District of Columbia recommendations will be sub- 
mitted through the Commanding General, District of Colum- 
bia Militia, and appointment will be made by the Secretary 
of War. 

3. In order to determine eligibility for the extension of 
federal recognition in the case of band leaders (warrant 
officers) application for such recognition will be forwarded 
by the respective Adjutants General (or the Commanding 
General, D. C. Militia) to the Militia Bureau, War Depart- 
ment, accompanied by the following papers : 

(a) Oath of Office, on Form 337-1, A. G. O. 

(b) Certificate of physical examination, Form 95, M. B. 

(c) Personal record, showing all military service, pro- 
fessional experience, and other facts tending to support the 
claim of the candidate as competent to fill the position of 
band leader in the military service, on Form 108, M. B. 
This form should be accompanied by at least two letters, 
preferably from military or civil officers of the State or of 
the United States, vouching for the moral and professional 
qualifications of the applicant for federal recognition as 
band leader. 

4. The professional qualifications of candidates for ap- 
pointment will be determined by the appointing power. In 
case of apparent evidence of lack of suitability of an ap- 
pointee in any instance the Inspector-Instructor in whose 
district the band is stationed will make report on the subject 
to the Militia Bureau, and a Board will be assembled to 
investigate and make recommendation as to whether or not 
the recognition of the band leader so investigated shall be 
withdrawn. 

5. Band leaders should be of such character and age 
as to be able to enforce discipline in their instructional 
work. Unless especially authorized by the Militia Bureau 
for reasons duly presented and considered no band leader 
will be federally recognized who is less than twenty-five 
or more than fifty years of age at time of original appoint- 
ment. 

6. Warrants will be issued by the appointing power or 
by their order. 

II. Attention is invited to the fact that until Congress shall 
provide suitable legislation no members of the National Guard can 
receive pay as warrant officers. Band leaders appointed as master- 
sergeants will be entitltd to pay as master-sergeants under the 
provisions of National Guard Regulations. 

By direction of the Secretary of War : 

J. Mcl. CARTER, 
Brigadier General, U. S. Army. 



(NOTE : Attention invited to Par. 2. Warrants will not be 
issued to Band Leaders in view of the fact that no provision is 
made for their pay. Band Leaders will remain as master sergeants 
until such time as Congress appropriates money for their pay as 
warrant officers — Adj. Gen. Pa.)

CIRCULAR LETTER No. 5. 

From : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of 

Hawaii and Porto Rico, and the District of Columbia 
Militia. 

Subject : Conversion of National Guard Unit*. 

1. Conversions of units to conform to the new allotments of 
troops and to the recently-issued Tables of Organization may be 
effected as soon as the Tables are received and under the follow- 
ing conditions : 

(a) When the conversion is effected within a single branch of 
the service and the new unit is not required to provide storage 
facilities for a quantity or character of material differing greatly 
from that of the old unit, no formal inspection for recognition will 
be required. The state authorities should issue orders covering the 
transfer or conversion, indicating the date upon which the con- 
version is effective and the Table of Organization (Regular Army 
or modified Table issued by the Militia Bureau) to which the unit 
should conform. The Militia Bureau should be furnished with a 
copy of such state orders, In this connection, it must be under- 
stood that the new unit must be composed wholly of National 
Guard personnel. 

(b) Where the conversion requires the new unit to accept 
responsibility for a greater quantity, of different character, of ma- 
terial than was prescribed for, the old unit, or where the conver- 
sion requires the reorganization of the unit in a different branch 
of the service, the customary inspection for Federal recognition 
may be called for if desired ; or this inspection may be dispensed 
with provided the state authorities furnish the Militia Bureau 
with a certificate executed by a Federal Inspector-Instructor indi- 
cating that the Newly-organized unit conforms to the prescribed 
Tables and is composed wholly of National Guard personnel, and 
that adequate storage and armory facilities exist for the personnel 
and for the changed equipment to be provided. Upon receipt of 
this certificate the Militia Bureau will extend recognition to the 
unit on its new status, this recognition being effective as of the 
date of the state order directing the conversion. In order to 
simplify the keeping of records and the preparation of pay rolls, 
it is suggested that state orders be dated as of the first of the month 
following the month in which the conversion was effected. 

2. In preparing armory drill pay rolls for units affected by 
this letter, the following procedure should be adopted : 

(a) Units that have simply had their letter designation changed 
to another letter of the same regiment will continue their original 
pay roll, making notation of the date and authority for the change 
in letter designation. 

(b) For units which change from one branch to another or 
which are given a radically different designation within the regi- 
ment (such as the conversion of a lettered Infantry Company or 
a Machine-gun company into an Infantry Howitzer company), a 



7 



[Bui. No. 1.] 



pay roll should be prepared for the old unit covering that portion 
of the six-months period preceding the issuance of the state order. 
This pay roll should be indorsed to show that the unit was. by- 
cited authority, converted into another unit. A separate pay roll 
should be prepared covering the drills of the new unit for the period 
following the issuance of the state order, and this roll should also 
be indorsed to show the authority for the change in the unit's desig- 
nation. The two pay rolls should be forwarded together at the 
close of the six months period. 

3. Officers transferred out of the branch in which they hold 
commissions should submit new oaths of office.

No. 2. ( 

Herewith is published Circular Letter No. 7 of the Militia Bu- 
reau for the information and guidance of all concerned. 



WAR DEPARTMENT, 
MILITIA BUREAU, 

Washington. 

January 31, 1921. 

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 7. 
From : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To : The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of 

Hawaii and Porto Rico and the District of Columbia 
Militia. 

Subject : Changes in designation of units. 

1. Certain changes connected with the organization and designa- 
tion of Regular Army units have been approved by the War De- 
partment since the publication of the allotments of National 
Guard troops to the various states. These changes in organiza- 
tion and designation, having been adopted for the Regular Army, 
apply to the National Guard Service and they are therefore 
announced herein for the guidance of all concerned : 

(a) The unit designated in the recent National Guard allot- 
ments as a ""Cavalry regiment Administration troop" will hence- 
forth be known as a "Cavalry regiment Service troop." 

(b) The Engineer regiment included in an Infantry division is 
to be known as a "Combat Engineer regiment" (this designation 
was heretofore given to the Engineer regiments attached to Corps 
and Army headquarters). Other Engineer units are to be known 
as Corps or Army Engineer regiments, Auxiliary Engineer batta- 
lions, etc. The Engineer unit with a Cavalry division is to be 
known as a "Combat Engineer battalion, mounted." 



[Bui. 2.] 



2 



The designation "Headquarters and Service company" of an 
Engineer regiment will henceforth apply to the headquarters unit 
of Engineer regiments whether included in a Division, Corps or 
Army. 

Paragraph (b) applies to the final allotments of NEW 
MEXICO, WEST VIRGINIA, MINNESOTA, WISCONSIN, 
PENNSYLVANIA and to all states allotted Engineer regiments. 

(c) The unit designated heretofore as a "Truck Company 
(Q. M. C.)" and the unit designated as a "Motor Car Company" 
are to be known as a "Motor Transport Company." (This applies 
to the 1921 allotments of ALABAMA, MISSISSIPPI, NORTH 
CAROLINA, SOUTH CAROLINA, INDIANA, and of all States- 
allotted a complete Infantry division. 

(d) The unit heretofore designated as an "Army Motor Re- 
pair Shop Company" is to be known as a "Motor Repair Com- 
pany" (No. 1921 allotments are affected by this change but the 
final allotments of MISSOURI and PENNSYLVANIA are con- 
cerned). 

(e) In the peace time organization for the Regular Army no 
battalion organization is contemplated for Ambulance and Hos- 
pital companies. Therefore whenever an Ambulance battalion 
headquarters or a Hospital battalion headquarters appear in the 
National Guard allotment to any State, these units will not be 
organized for the present. (This applies to the 1921 allotment of 
KANSAS, OREGON, WASHINGTON and of all States allotted 
a complete Infantry division). 

(f) For the reason set forth above, wherever the allotment to 
a State includes an Ambulance battalion or Hospital battalion, 
there may for the present be organized only the units set forth 
below : 

For an Ambulance battalion, 2 Ambulance companies (1 motor- 
ized, 1 animal drawn). 

For a Hospital battalion, 2 Hospital companies, 1 Medical 
Supply Section and 1 Medical laboratory. 

(This applies to the 1921 allotments of INDIANA and of all 
States allotted a complete Infantry division). 

(g) Wherever a Brigade Headquarters of Infantry, Field 
Artillery or Cavalry appears in the final allotment of any State, 
there should be added the "Headquarters company (or troop)" of 
the brigade, (this unit having been adopted for the Regular Army 
after the publications of the National Guard allotments). Wher- 
ever the Brigade Headquarters appears in the 1921 allotment 
of any State, the Headquarters Company may be organized dur- 
ing the present fiscal year, (this applies to the 1921 allotments of 
WISCONSIN, MINNESOTA, KANSAS. OKLAHOMA, NEW 
JERSEY, MAINE, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, MISSIS- 
SIPPI, SOUTH CAROLINA, GEORGIA, KENTUCKY, ARI- 
ZONA, WASHINGTON, OREGON, CALIFORNIA, WYOM- 
ING, SOUTH DAKOTA, TEXAS, NEW YORK and TENNES- 
SEE.) These brigade headquarters units are to be organized on 
the basis of the Regular Army Tables of Organization, since all 
are below a minimum enlisted strength of fifty. 



3 



[Bui. 2.] 



(h) For the Regular Array peace time organization the Divi- 
sional Headquarters company and the Military Police company 
have been combined into one unit (See Table 4P). In this Tabic 
the Military Police unit constitutes a platoon of 50 enlisted men 
(with one officer) of the combined company. For the National 
Guard Divisional Military Police companies the organization will 
conform to Table prepared and issued by the Militia Bureau so 
far as composition is concerned. The equipment to be furnished 
will be that prescribed for the Regular Army unit. (This applies 
to the 1921 allotments of MASSACHUSETTS, DISTRICT OF 
COLUMBIA, TENNESSEE, KENTUCKY, WISCONSIN, 
KANSAS, and of all States allotted a complete division). 

The question of the composition of the Corps Military Police 
companies remains to be decided. (This applies to NEW HAMP- 
SHIRE and WEST VIRGINIA). 

(i) The Divisional Headquarters company for the National 
Guard will conform to the table prepared and issued by the Militia 
Bureau so far as composition is concerned. This table is based on 
columns 4, 5 and 6, Table 4P (Regular Army, Tables of Organ- 
ization, 1921), a small reduction being made in the commissioned 
and enlisted personnel in order to provide for the Military Police 
unit. (This applies to the 1921 allotments of all States assigned 
a complete division) . 

2. The authorities of the States concerned are requested to 
alter the letters of authorization issued to them by the Militia 
Bureau to conform to the changes indicated herein. 

3. Tables of Organization issued by the War Department (in- 
cluding the modified Tables prepared by the Militia Bureau) be- 
come effective as soon as received.

No. 3. ( 

The following Circular Letters of the Militia Bureau are pub- 
lished for the information and guidance of all concerned. 



WAR DEPARTMENT, 
MILITIA BUREAU, 
Washington. 

February 3, 1921. 

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 8. 
From : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: The Adjutants General of- all States, Territories of 
Hawaii and Porto Rico, and the District of Columbia 
Militia. 

Subject: Care and Repair of Band Instruments. 

The following instructions relating to the care and repair of 
band instruments are published for the information and guidance 
of all concerned : 

Cure of wood wind instruments. 

1. A wood wind instrument is a complicated piece of mechan- 
ism and requires the same care as any delicate piece of ma- 
chinery. 

2. The best treatment for a new instrument is to use it spar- 
ingly at first, say every other day. wiping carefully after use. 
A small wet sponge should be kept in the case ; this will moisten 
the wood on the outside, preventing it from shrinking. 

.">. The instrument should be oiled inside am] outside at least 
once a week with a slight application of almond oil. It helps to 
keep the instrument clean, prevents the rotting of the wood, and 
from experience it is found that the instrument blows more 
smoothly and gives a richer tone. Care should be taken that 
the oil does not come in contact with tin' pads, as they will swell, 
rot. and cause air escapment. 

4. All pads should be at least one-eighth of an inch from tin' 
keyholes, as they will otherwise draw the water into the holes. 

5. If there is a keyhole that continually draws water, a small 
coating of vaseline should be applied inside the hole. This will 
prevent the water from entering. 



[Bui, 3.] 



2 



6. The sudden exposure of any wood wind instrument to cold 
or heat should be avoided, as this is the chief cause of cracking. 

7. It is impossible to obviate entirely the shrinkage and change 
of the wood. New wood often shrinks to such a degree as to put 
the key action entirely but of order. Such condition does not 
necessarily place the instrument out of commission. By removing 
the keys and carefully filing- the posts or key shafting, all binding 
can lie eliminated. Such work, however, should be done by an 
expert. 

8. Should the keys stick, through neglect, the use of a screw 
driver and a little oil (Three-in-one) for a few minutes on the 
screws and springs will undoubtedly remedy the difficulty. 

!». If the joint rings become loose they can be forced on with a 
little paper under them. If this does not suffice, the ends should 
be placed in water two or three hours. This treatment also ap- 
plies to bell ring. 

10. A wood wind instrument, if not played on, will never crack 
mi matter to what treatment it may be subjected, outside the 
use nf force. The cause of - cracking in most cases is that, when 
playing, the instrument is warm. This causes it to shrink on the 
outside and the saliva on the inside swells the wood, thus creat- 
ing two forces opposed to each other. The inside moisture being 
stronger, the dry outside naturally gives way causing a crack. 

11. It is extremely important that the barrel joint on a clarinet 
be kept loose and free. When a clarinet cracks, it usually does 
so in the upper joint, due to the fact that the barrel joint was 
allowed to set tight on the instrument. 

12. After using, the bore and all joints should be wiped free 
from water. Three-in-one oil is good for keys. A little oil on a 
rag applied to the keys occasionally will also help to keep them 
clean and bright. Wood wind instruments should never be sub- 
jected to sudden changes of temperature. 

13. All joints on flutes and piccolos should be thoroughly 
greased and the head joint stopper so lubricated as to make it 
movable at all times. Many flutists fail to recognize the impor- 
tance of the stopper and are not cognizant of the fact that the 
correct tunning of all tones in the extreme high register is made 
by shifting this little accessory. 

14. No guarantee can be given by any one that wood wind in- 
struments will not crack; much can be done, however, to pre- 
vent cracking. 

C are of saxophones. 

1. Cork on mouthpipe extension should be kept well greased . 
at all times. When placing mouthpiece on pipe, great care should 
be taken not to wrench or strain mouthpiece in such a manner as 
would cause it to become unserviceable. 

2. In placing and removing mouthpiece from instrument, care 
should be taken to observe that the set-screw, which holds mouth- 
piece in place, is loosened before each operation. 

3. All screws and long shaftings which hold key mechanism 
in place should be cleaned and oiled at least once a week. 



3 



[Bui. 3.] 



4. Springs should be looked over daily and, where rust is found, 
removal thereof should begin at once. Emery cloth has been found 
very useful for this work. Springs should be oiled frequently. 

5. Slow key action is very often attributed to a weak spring. 
When such is the case, a satisfactory stiffening can often be had 
by carefully bending the spring back in an opposite direction 
from which the key operates. If this is not found satisfactory, 
spring replacement becomes necessary. 

(>. Knocks and other disagreeable noises which often appear 
in key action can be corrected by replacement of cork padding under 
keys and levers. When action requires regulating which condition 
is often brought about by wearing of key shafting, same can be 
accomplished by slightly moving inwardly posts to which keys are 
adjusted. Care, however, must be taken not to wrench posts loose 
from their sockets. Where shafting is worn to an appreciable 
degree, a small washer placed on the pin between shafting posts 
has often been found satisfactory. 

7. Instruments should always be cleaned after using. This 
applies particularly to tin,' mouthpiece. 

Care of brass instrwnments. 

1. The mouthpiece should never be jammed into the mouth- 
piece branch. To do so, often results in split tubing. All valve 
slides, tuning slides, and other accessories required for adjust- 
ment of pitch should be kept in working order by using grease 
which is issued for this purpose. 

1!. The use of chisels, pliers or other metal instruments in 
removing ringer buttons and valve caps, top or bottom, should be 
avoided. When valve caps stick, due to corrosion or other causes 
not produced by accident, the instrument should be placed in a 
position where hot water can run over the cap. This applica- 
tion for a few minutes will cause the cap to loosen up, removal 
of which can then be easily accomplished. 

3. No violence should be manifested in trying to remove valves 
that stick. To do so, destroys absolutely further use of the in- 
strument. Application of hot water, as noted for valve caps, 
will in all cases produce the desired results. Valves should be 
removed and cleaned at least once a week. Care must be taken, 
however, not to use any substance that will cause friction, as to 
scratch a valve in the minutest way often causes it to stick and 

* produce untold trouble. 

4. When an instrument is to be laid away for any length 
of time, valve caps should be greased and a little oil, No. 2, which 
is issued by the Quartermaster Corps, rubbed on the valves, so 
that the instrument will be in working order when again called 
into service. 

5. Instruments should be kept clean. A five per cent, solu- 
tion of carbolic acid run through the tubing at certain periods 
will prove a great cleanser and sweeten up the instrument. No 
person, except the one habitually using the instrument should be 
permitted to use the mouthpiece. Failure to observe this rule 
often causes sore lips and other ailments.

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 9. 
From : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: The Adjutants General of all States. Territories of 
Hawaii and Porto Rico, and the 'District of Columbia 
Militia. 

Subject : Corrections in Tables of Organization and Disposition 
of Officers rendered excess by reorganization. 

1. The following information in connection with changes and 
errors in the Regular Army Tables of Organization is published 
for the guidance of all concerned: 

(a) Infantry and Field Artillery Battalion Headquarters 
units : 

It will be noted that the Infantry battalion organization now 
includes a Battalion Headquarters Company, with a peace strength 
of 41 enlisted men. For Regular Army peace time service it is 
contemplated that this unit will be rationed with the lettered com- 
panies of the battalion, and for this reason neither mess sergeants 
nor cooks are authorized (See T. O. 26 P and 27 P). For Na- 
tion Guard service the same rule will apply while the units con- 
cerned are on encampment duty. A National Guard Infantry 
battalion headquarters company may, if the State authorities so 
desire, be organized together with the battalion headquarters, at 
a station separate from those of the other companies of the bat- 
talion. 

The Combat Train authorized for the Artillery battalions in 
both divisions and corps may either be organized, together with 
battalion headquarters, at a station separate from the stations of 
the batteries composing the battalion ; or, if the batteries are in 
separate stations, one section of the Combat Train may be organ- 
ized at the station of each one of the detached batteries. 

(Ii) Medical Detachment, Infantry Regiment : 

The Medical Detachment shown in Regular Army Table 23 I' 
for an Infantry regiment is incorrect in the figures applying to the 
officers. The correct Medical Corps personnel for an Infantry 
regiment is that shown in Table 90 P. This personnel consists of : 

1 Major. 

4 Captains or 1st Lieutenants (2 of whom must be from 

the Dental Service). 
1 Staff Sergeant. 
•'! Sergeants. 
1 Corporal. 
25 Privates, 1st Class and Privates. 

(c) Change in Designation of Truck Company : 

The unit heretofore designated as a "Truck Company" allotted 
under Corps Troops to the States listed below is now known as a 



5 



[Bui. 3. J 



"Motor Transport Company." The same designation now applies 
to the units heretofore called "Motor Car Companies" and "Truck 
Companies, Q. M. C," as indicated in Militia Bureau Circular 
Letter No. 7, 1921. The offices concerned are requested to make 
the necessary alterations in their copies of the Militia Bureau's 
letters of authorization. The above change does not apply to 
Track Companies (Artillery). The above applies to the final al- 
lotments of TENNESSEE, MISSISSIPPI, LOUISIANA, 
NORTH CAROLINA, SOUTH CAROLINA, FLORIDA. 
ARKANSAS. MINNESOTA, ARIZONA. COLORADO, NEW 
MEXICO, OKLAHOMA and TEXAS. 

(d) Ratio of Privates, 1st ('las* and Privates: 

Under General Orders, No. 36. War Department, June 19, 1920, 
it is prescribed that in any unit the number of Privates, 1st Class, 
shall not exceed 50% of the number of Privates. It is understood 
that upon the completion of the publication of the Regular Army 
Tables of Organization. General Orders No. 36 will be rescinded 
and a variation in the above ratio will be authorized. Until Gen- 
eral Orders No. 36 is rescinded, however, the ratio of 1 :2 will 
hold for National Guard units unless the Regular Army Tables 
of Organization explicitly prescribe a larger or a smaller ratio. 

2. Federally recognized officers of the National Guard who 
may lie rendered surplus in the process of the reorganization are 
available to fill vacancies in other units federally recognized as 
National Guard. Information as to disposition of surplus officers 
t'm- whom vacancies can not be found will be furnished as soon 
as possible. 

By direction of the Secretary of War : 

J. Mcl. CARTER, 
Brigadier General, V . S. Army. 

(NOTE — The complete Tables of Organization will be distri- 
buted to units of the Pennsylvania National Guard as soon as 
received from the War Department. Adj. Gen. /'</.)

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 10. 
From: The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: The Adjutants General of all States. Territories of 

Hawaii and Porto Rico, and the District of Columbia 
Militia. 

Subject : Preparation of requisitions for supplies. 

1. In connection with the preparation on P & S Form 160 of 
requisitions for supplies, it is observed that the proper information 
is rarely given under heading "Basis for Requisition" and "Ex- 



[Bui. 3. | 



6 



planatory Notes,'* the information pertaining to these headings 
being often apparently contained in the heading provided for the 
shipminent of the supplies. 

2. It is requested that hereafter the authority under which 
the supplies are called for be stated under "Basis for Requisition," 
such as "Militia Bureau Letter (date and file number)," or "War 
Department Circular No (date)." or whatever the au- 
thority is. 

3. Remarks should be made under the heading "Explanatory 
Notes," such as "Initial equipment required for (name of organ- 
ization)." "Required for the maintenance of tractors." or "Clean- 
ing and preserving materials for battery equipment," or whatever 
the reason is for requesting the supplies. 

4. The name of the consignee is not necessary in the space pro- 
vided for shipping directions, but shipping instructions should 
read: "Ship to: The United States Property and Disbursing Of- 
ficer for the National Guard of ," or "The Com- 
manding Officer. Company, (Troop or Battery) 

Regiment," with the point of destination plainly indicated and 
street address shown were essential. Shipping directions should 
always be clear, explicit, and complete. 

5. A man should also be detailed to be present at armories, 
arsenals and storehouses to receipt for property delivered by car- 
riers, as it is presumed the consignee in all cases receives noti- 
fication either from shipping tickets from supply depots or other- 
wise in advance of actual shipments of supplies. 

(i. Requisitions for foiage should be prepared in accordance 
witli paragraph 1003, National Guard Regulations, 1919, with the 
exception that the space on the form of requisition (P & S 100) 
"Quantity on hand" should be filled in, and the quantities de- 
sired should be indicated in column "required for." The headings 
in the paragraph referred to above differ from those contained on 
the form of requisition now used. 

7. Careful observance of the foregoing will assist this office 
anil the various supply points from duplicating the issue of sup- 
lilies and will aid in expediting action to be taken mi requisitions.

No. 4. S 

I. The following- indorsement of the Militia Bureau is published 
for the information and guidance of all concerned : 

1ST IKD. 



War Department. Militia Bureau. February 12, 1921 — To the 
Property and Disbursing Officer for the United States in the State 
of Pennsylvania, through the Adjutant General of Pennsylvania. 

1. In view of the fact that the law requires that all property 
issued to the National Guard by the Federal government and which 
may be lost, damaged or destroyed, shall be surveyed, the use of 
A. G. O. Form No. 602 as a voucher to property accounts is not 
considered necessary, an amendment to the National Guard Regu- 
lations about to be published providing that a copy of the approved 
report of survey shall be furnished the organization commander 
and a copy to the property and disbursing officer for vouchers to 
their respective property loan records. 

2. If direct collections from enlisted men or officers cannot be. 
made for articles lost by them (if collected the funds should be 
forwarded to the Militia Bureau with the report of survey), then 
charges against them on the pay rolls may be made. If such 
charges are made on the pay rolls in connection with encampments, 
the amounts deducted should be forwarded by the disbursing of- 
ficer to the Militia Bureau together with the reports of survey, 
resulting in copies of the report of survey being furnished the 
commanding officer and the property and disbursing officer. If the 
charges should be made on the armory drill rolls, the same pro- 
cedure as stated above would follow except that the funds deducted 
would be forwarded to the Militia Bureau by the army finance 
officer paying the roll. In either case, the report of survey should 
set forth the facts in connection with the loss and state that the 
charges had been made on the camp pay rolls or the armory 
drill rolls as the case might be. 

8. As to cases where enlisted men enlist in the Army or the 
Navy and fail to account for National Guard equipment before 
leaving their National Guard station, the facts should be reported 
to this Bureau including an itemized statement as to the articles 
unaccounted for. Upon receipt of this information, this Bureau 
will endeavor to have the articles restored to the State by the man 
in the Army or Navy service and if this cannot be accomplished 
will have the value of the articles collected from the man's pay 
through proper channels. Upon receipt of money reimbursement, 
the funds will be placed in the United States Treasury to the 



[Bui. 4.] 



2 



credit of the State, and the State, upon notice, can forward a 
report of survey setting forth the facts as to loss and collection 
and the returned copies of approved report of survey will serve 
as vouchers for both the unit commander and the property and 
disbursing officer. 

By direction of the Secretary of War: 

J. Mcl. CARTER, 
Brigadier General, U. S. Army. 
Chief of Bureau. 



II. The following information relative to examinations for 
West Point is announced : 

it. Under present conditions the National Guard of each 
State is allowed a certain number of candidates for 
admission to West Point. 

h. This number is fixed by The Adjutant-General of the 
Army, generally about September first of each year, 
and The Adjutants-General of the several States are 
so advised. 

c. These candidates will be appointed after competitive ex- 

aminations. Such examinations will be held between 
the first and fifteen of September of each year unless 
dates are changed by subsequent orders. 

d. Candidates should make written application through com- 

manding officers of their companies, which applications 
should be forwarded through Military Channels and be 
accompanied by the personal history of each candidate. 



III. The following communication of the Militia Bureau is 
published :

decided that enlisted men of the National Guard detailed under 
the provisions of Section 99 to attend a military service school

1. The following communication and memorandum of the War 
Department is published for the information of all concerned : 



AVAR DEPARTMENT. 
TEE ADJUTANT GENERAL'S OFFICE, 
Washington, 

February 25, 1921. 

Subject : Appointment of Officers in the Regular Army. 

To: The Adjutant General, State of Pennsylvania, Harris- 

burg. 

1. The inclosed memorandum of information is furnished you 
in the hope that you will lend your assistance to the War De- 
partment in giving the matter such publicity as is practicable 
among potential candidates for appointment. 

2. The present exceptional opportunity for appointment as 
an officer of the Army is without parallel. By bringing the 
matter to the attention of all eligible young men it is hoped to 
secure for the Army and for the country the desired number of 
well qualified appointees. 

P. C. HARRIS. 
1 Inclosure. The Adjutant General. 



MEMORANDUM OF INFORMATION CONCERNING AP- 
POINTMENTS IN THE ARMY. 

There are more than 4.000 vacancies in the commissioned 
personnel of the Army. When promotions under the reorganiza- 
tion law are completed about 1.200 of these vacancies will be in 
the grade of first lieutenant, the remainder being in the grade 
of second lieutenant. While it is uot proposed to fill all 
vacancies at present, the necessity for more officers for the Army 
requires that a portion of the vacancies be filled without delay. 
An examination for appointment will, therefore, be held April 
25. 1921. This examination will be competitive for 2.585 vacan- 
cies : the appointment to be distributed among the branches of the 
Army as follows: 



[Bui. 5.]

Infantry, 

Cavalry,

As a result of this examination no appointments are to be made 
in branches of the service other than those named above. 

The date announced is that of the final examination. Prior 
to that date applications must be submitted and applicants must 
undergo a preliminary examination. All applications are to be 
received and acted upon by corps area commanders who are also 
charged with conducting the preliminary and final examinations. 
Details of information concerning examinations for appointment 
are contained in regulations now being distributed, and applica- 
tion blanks may be obtained at any military post or station. Ap- 
plications should be submitted by the applicant at the military 
post or station nearest his place of residence. Writing to The 
Adjutant General for Information or for blanks will only cause 
delay. 

It is contemplated that successful candidates will be announced 
and appointed, or nominated for appointment, about two months 
after the examination. Candidates attending schools or colleges, 
will, therefore, have an opportunity to complete the present school 
year before being appointed. 

All successful candidates will be arranged in their order of merit 
as determined by the final examination and will be appointed in 
the Army in such order. They will also be placed on the pro- 
motion list in such order without regard to the branch of the 
Army in which appointed. Those candidates who attain the 
highest marks on examination will, therefore, have priority in ad- 
vancement to the vacancies existing as first lieutenant. To be 
informed as to the full details concerning examinations and ap- 
pointment, it is necessary that candidates consult the regulations 
which are being sent to all military posts and stations. However, 
the prospective candidate's attention is directed to the following 
important points : 

1. Eligibility for appointment is fixed by law and requests for 
exceptions cannot, therefore, receive consideration by the 
War Department, The age at the time of appointment 
must be between 21 and 30 years. At the time of the final 
examination each candidate must be in one of the following 
classes : 

(a) A warrant officer or enlisted man of the Regular Army 

having had not less than two years' service as 
such. 

(b) A member of the Officers' Reserve Corps or the enlisted 

Reserve Corps. 

(c) A member of the National Guard. 



3 



[Bui. 5.] 



(d) A graduate of a technical institution approved by the 
Secretary of War. 



Any civilian of the required age who passes the preliminary 
examination may readily become eligible to take the final 
examination and to be appointed by entering either Class 
(b) or (c) above. 



The preliminary examination consists merely of an inquiry 
into the physical, moral and mental qualifications of an 
applicant to determine whether or not he has the re- 
quisite qualifications to justify his proceeding with the 
final examination. Such a preliminary examination will 
avoid inconveniences and unnecessary expenses to both 
the applicant and the government in many cases. 



The final examination is the same for all candidates and to 
insure strict justice to all. the examination papers will be 
marked by central boards convened in the War De- 
partment. The scope of the mental examination is such 
as to insure the Army getting men of the required educa- 
tional foundation to satisfactorily follow a career as an 
Army officer. The elementary part of this examination 
embraces the subjects of history, grammar, geography, arith- 
metic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry and physics. The 
advanced part of the examination consist of a large number 
of subjects including mathematics, languages, literature, 
electricity, chemistry, law and minor tactics. Examination 
is required in but three of the subjects of the advanced 
group to be selected by the candidate. 



4. Candidates for appointment in the Air Service, Engineers. 

Signal Corps and Ordnance Department are required to 
satisfy certain technical requirements, either by examina- 
tion or by having graduated from technical schools. 

5. The regulations provide liberal exemptions from examination 

m various subjects according to the education, training and 
experience that the candidate has had. The granting of 
exemptions has been placed entirely in the hands of the 
examining hoards and requests for exemption cannot, there- 
tore, be considered by the War Department. 



(.. Each candidate is permitted to express one or two choices of 
the branch of the service in which he desires to be ap- 
pointed. In making appointments, however, while the pre- 
ferences of candidates will be given due consideration the 
War Department reserves the right to assign them to such 
branches ot the service as may be necessary. 

"in consideration of all of the facts it is apparent that the pre-' 
sent offers an exceptional opportunity for appointment in the 
Army and it is anticipated that no difficulty will be experienced 
in securing the number of good officers for which the examination 
is held. Should a number ot candidates, in excess of those for 
which the examination is held, receive a passing mark on examina- 
tion, those making the lowest mark will not be selected for ap- 
pointment nor will they be placed on an eligible list for future 



[Bui. 5.]

appointment, as the experience of the War Department has been 
that such eligible lists are unsatisfactory both to the Government 
and to the individual. 

(NOTE: Olflcers desiring to make application will write The 
Adjutant-General, Harrisburg, Pa., thru Military 
Channels, stating their experience, training, and edu- 
cational qualifications. — Adj. Gen. Pa.)

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 11.

To: The Adjutants General of all States. Territories of 

Hawaii and Porto Rico, and the District of Col- 
umbia Militia. , 

Subject : Enlistment of Members of the Naval Reserve in the 
National Guard. 

The following extracts from communications received from the 
Chief, Bureau of Navigation, Navy Department, give the policy 
of that Department on the above subject, and are quoted for the 
information of all concerned : 

"It has come to the attention of this Bureau that in 
certain instances commanding officers of the National 
Guard units have enlisted members of the Naval Reserve 
Force on inactive duty without first having obtained dis- 
charges from the Reserve Force." 

"It is requested that commanding officers of National 
Guard units be advised that it is absolutely necessary 
that the individual be discharged from the Naval Re- 
serve Force prior to executing oath for enlistment in 
the National Guard." 

"It is not the policy of the Navy Department to author- 
ize the discharge of members of the Reserve Force to 
join the National Guard. These men have been trained 
at sea under war conditions, and form a valuable asset 
to the Navy and to the Nation, so that it is most desirable 
to continue them as a part of the Naval Reserve Force. 
The training for the Navy is entirely different from that 
in the National Guard, and the Federal Government is 
the loser by transferring men from the naval to the 
military service." 

"In case there are any special cases of men preferring 
service in the National Guard to that in the Naval Re- 
serve Force, such men should ' make application to the 



5 



[Bui. 5.] 



Commandant of the District in which they reside and 
each case will be considered upon its merits. The Navy 
Department will not issue general authority to discharge 
members of the Reserve Force to enable them to enter 
the National Guard."

J. Mel. GARTER, 
Brig. Gen., V. 8. Army. 



?>. In answer to an inquiry made to the Militia Bureau ask- 
ing for a decision as to the pay of enlisted men participating in 
rifle practice, and how such rifle practice should be credited on 
drill pay, the following decision was received and is published 
for the information of all organization commanders : 

2nd Ind. 

War Dept., Militia Bureau, February 26, 1921. To the 
Adjutant General of Pennsylvania. 

Returned. In view of the present provision of law governing 
armory drill pay, no credit for armory drillls will be given for 
detachments attending rifle practice, or for attendance at non- 
commissioned officers' schools, for any other attendance than 
actual armory drills prescribed as such for the entire personnel 
of the unit.

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 15. 
Froiu : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To : The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of Hawaii and 

Porto Rico and the District of Columbia Militia. 

Subject : Publication for National Guard Organizations. 

1. The lists of allowances of War Department documents published 
with Circular Letter No. 81, Militia Bureau, 1920, have been revised to 
conform to the latest tables of organization and at the same time permit a 
reasonable reduction in the cost of supplying these publications. The new 
tables of allowances are furnished as enclosures to this Circular Letter. 
An inventory should be made and any company having a surplus over the 
allowance now prescribed should turn in the excess to the U. S. Property 
and Disbursing Officer. 

2. The method of making requisition is explained on each list, the essen- 
tial features being that local supply should be accomplished as far £is 
possible after which the U. S. Property and Disbursing Officer should make 
up one requisition, in triplicate, for the whole state. This requisition 
should include a set of sheets, in triplicate, showing the requirements and 
shipping instructions for individual companies. 

3. It is requested that careful attention be given to this subject in order 
that the labor and expense of issue may be kept as low as possible. Re- 
quisitions will be filled as rapidly as appropriations permit. 

4. The allowance lists are enclosed in sufficient quantity to permit dis- 
tributing them to all the companies and similar units in the State, and it 
is intended that they shall replace the shipping memorandums furnished 
with Circular Letter No. 81. These lists are for guidance only and are not 
to be used as requisitions. Future issues of War Department documents

2. The following statement from the Militia Bureau showing the progress 
of the National Guard of the United States on March 1, 1921, is published 
for the information of all concerned : 

NATIONAL, GUARD— STRENGTH MARCH 1, 1921. 

During February the strength of the National Guard increased by 2,049 
officers and enlisted men. Strength returns received by the Militia Bureau 
indicate in nearly all cases a falling off in enlisted strength of units pre- 
viously recognized, some units having fallen below 50 men. All units must 
reach a maintenance strength of 65 enlisted men by July 1, 1921 or recog- 
nition may be withdrawn. During the month 75 new units were granted 
• recognition.

3. Tlie following tabulation of new Tables of Organization is 
published for the information of all commanding officers. Par- 
ticular attention is directed to the "Strength required for 
recognition." This strength will only apply under present de- 
cisions of the Militia Bureau up to June 30, 1921 ; after that date 
the second column, "Minimum maintenance strength," will apply 
for recognition as well as for maintenance. While organizations 
recognized before June 30, 1921, can obtain recognition at the 
strength given in the first column, yet all such organizations must 
acquire as soon as possible the strength for maintenance as in- 
dicated in the second column for the reason that a question may 
be raised as to their eligibility for armory drill pay if maintenance 
is below the minimum required in second column.

2. The following circular letters of the Militia Bureau are 
published for the information and guidance of all concerned : 



WAR DEPARTMENT. 
MILITIA BUREAU, 
Washington. 

March 14, 1921. 

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 16. 
From : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To : The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of 
Hawaii and Porto Rico and the District of Columbia 
Militia. 

Subject : Arm Racks. 

1. In view of existing orders for the exercise of strict economy 
in the expenditure of Federal funds and the more urgent neces- 
sity for the application of funds to fully equip troops for field 
service, arm racks will not be furnished the National Guard by 
the War Department at the present time, except as a cash sale 
under the provisions of Section 86 of the National Defense Act 
approved June 3, 1916. 

2. It is thought that all States should provide, at their own 
expense, adequate means for the safeguarding of arms when not 
in use, and it is urged that this be done. If any unusual con- 
ditions are present in a State where an exception to this rule 
would appear to be justified, statement to that effect should be 
furnished for consideration by this office. 

By direction of the Secretary of War : 

J. Mcl. CARTER, 
Brigadier General, U. 8. Army. 



(NOTE: — Standard arm racks will not be Included in rquisitions made by 
organization commanders. AVhere armories do not have regular wall racks 
for the care of arms, wooden closets or wall racks cheaply constructed, 
but protected by iron bands, should be provided out of annual allowance 
funds. In all cases where rifles are kept in wall racks, whether in State 
or rented armories, rifles in groups of ten, or some similar group, should 
be protected by iron strap or bar passing across the rifles as standing in the 
racks, and secured by lock and key. This will be a proper expenditure 
from annual allowance funds. — Adj. Gen. Pa.)

WAR DEPARTMENT. 
MILITIA BUREAU, 
Washington. 

March 16, 1921. 

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 17. 
From : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To : The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of Hawaii 
and Porto Rico and the District of Columbia Militia, 
Officers in Charge of National Guard Affairs, all Corps 
Areas, and to all Inspector-Instructors. 

Subject : Tables of Organization, Medical Department. 

1. Tables of Organization for the Medical Department, as ap- 
proved and issued to date, have recently been furnished you. 

2. Table 90 P (Summary of Medical Units and Attached to 
Infantry Divisional Organizations, Peace Strength), and Tables 
490 P (Summary of Medical Units and Attached to Cavalry 
Divisional Organizations, Peace Strength), do not require ex- 
planation. 

3r With reference to Tabic 83 P (Medical Regiment, Infantry 
Division, Peace Strength) the following information is furnished: 
By this table a Medical Regiment replaces the Sanitary train 
formerly prescribed for an Infantry Division. All the functions 
formerly pertaining to the Sanitary Train as now broadly laid 
down in the Manual for the Medical Department will, under the 
present tables of organization, be performed by the Medical Regi- 
ment. 

4. Regimental Headquarters of the medical regiment replaces 
the Headquarters of the old Sanitary train, and also includes the 
Division Surgeon's office. The senior medical officer in a division 
commands the medical regiment and also is and discharges the 
functions of division surgeon, being responsible to the Division 
Commander for the supervision and coordination of all Medical 
Department activities within the division. 

5. The Sanitary Company is a new organization and embraces 
what was formerly the litter bearer and Dressing Station Sections 
of the old Ambulance Company. In combat it performs the 
functions previously prescribed for those sections, i, e., provid- 
ing the personnel and equipment for establishing a dressing sta- 
tion, and litter bearers for transporting the sick and wounded. 
When not in combat the sanitary company is divisible if neces- 
sary into several sanitary squads carrying out practically the 
same functions as were assigned to sanitary squads during the 
World War although in the case of a division they carry on their 
work within the limits of the divisional area. No equipment has 
been prescribed for a sanitary company to date. Until its equip- 
ment is definitely determined the equipment for establishing a 
Dressing Station Section of an Ambulance company as prescribed 
in Paragraph 878, M. M. D., and 10 litters will be furnished 
this unit. 

6. The Ambulance Company of the Medical regiment is the 
old Ambulance company of the sanitary train less the dressing 
station and litter bearer sections mentioned above. It now be- 
comes exclusively a transportation unit. Until its equipment is 



5 



[Bui. 10.1 



definitely settled, it will be essentially as prescribed in paragraph 
No. 874, Manual for the Medical Department, less that part of 
the equipment enumerated in that paragraph as intended for the 
dressing stations and litter bearer sections. The foregoing ap- 
plies to the animal drawn company. For the motorized company 
there will be selected from Paragraph 874 only such articles as 
are essential for the training of this new unit and adaptable to 
motor transport conditions. The training of the animal drawn 
and motorized ambulance companies of the new medical regiment 
is similar to what was formerly required for the old ambulance 
company of the sanitary train, bearing in mind that the litter 
bearer and dressing station sections are no longer a constituent 
part of the unit. 

7. The use of the term Field Hospital has been discontinued 
and Hospital company substituted therefor. The functions of 
the hospital company are substantially the same as those formerly 
pertaining to the old field hospital. Pending the receipt of the 
new equipment tables its equipment should conform to such es- 
sential articles in paragraph 879, Manual for the Medical De- 
partment as may be necessary to carry on training; functions. 
In this connection it is to be remembered that in Tables of 
Organization motor transportation is prescribed for this unit in 
lieu of animal drawn. The training of hospital companies will 
be conducted along the same lines as was formerly given a field 
hospital. 

8. The Medical Supply Section of the medical regiment, at 
peace strength, consists of one captain or lieutenant of the 
Medical Administrative Corps and 8 enlisted men of the Medical 
Department. Its function is to requisition for and furnish medical 
supplies in the field for the entire Medical Service of the Division. 
Its training will be such as to fit its personnel for the efficient 
performance of these duties. 

9. The Veterinary Company of the medical regiment consists 
of 2 officers of the Veterinary Corps of the rank of captain or 
lieutenant, one of whom serves as the Division Meat Inspector, 
and of 26 enlisted men of the Medical Department who elect 
veterinary service. It replaces the Mobile Veterinary Section 
previously authorized and described in Special Regulations No. 
70, W. D. (with Changes No. 1), paragraph 31 to 37 inclusive, 
and 113 to 124 inclusive. Its function are as outlined therein 
for the mobile veterinary section. Pending the issue of new 
equipment tables its equipment will be restricted to essential 
articles to be selected from the tables of veterinary supplies in the 
Manual for the Medical Department. Its training will be of 
such nature as will best fit it to perform the duties prescribed for 
it under the Special Regulations above mentioned. 

10. The Medical Laboratory Section is practically a new feature 
and an outgrowth of the World War. As it has no prototype in 
existing regulations to which reference can be made the following 
text of the proposed regulations to govern these new units is given 
in order that properly qualified personnel may be assigned to them 
and understand the important functions devolving upon them 
during training or mobilization periods :

1. General Statement. The primary object of this unit relates 
to the prevention and control of communicable diseases and the 
maintenance of the health among military personnel and animals

in commands of which the medical regiment forms a part. 
Secondarily, it will perform such routine general laboratory work 
for the command of which the medical regiment forms a part as 
can not be accomplished by other laboratories in the administra- 
tive area served by it. 

2. Organisation (Peace and war strength.) Tables of organiza- 
tion in force at present provide for one Captain or Lieutenant, 
Medical Corps, and five enlisted men, peace strength and one 
Major, Medical Corps, and one Captain or Lieutenant, Sanitary 
Corps and seven enlisted men, Medical Department, War strength. 

3. Personnel, Commissioned and Enlisted. 

(a) The Medical officers selected for this unit should be com- 
petently trained in routine laboratory methods and have a thorough 
knowledge of the laboratory procedure relating to diagnosis of 
communicable diseases (typhoid, paratyphoid fevers; bacillary 
dysenteries ; malta fever, cholera ; infectious of the respiratory 
tract including diphtheria, pneumonia and meningitis ; protozoal 
infections, including malaria and filariasis ; ) and the examinations 
of material for pathogenic organisms causing venereal diseases ; 
examinations for helminths ; and examinations of specimens for 
other pathogenic organisms relating to communicable diseases. 
They should be competent to investigate the epidemiology of out- 
breaks of communicable diseases and advise as to the proper 
measures to be instituted for their control. 

(b) They should be competently trained to make the required 
bacteriological examinations for determination of potability of 
water supply, milk and other food supplies. 

(c) The enlisted personnel should have such training in 
laboratory technique as will enable them to act as technical as- 
sistants in the performance of the laboratory duties. 

4. Location. Unless otherwise directed the laboratory nor- 
mally will be established at or near the headquarters of the medi- 
cal regiment. 

5. Administrative Control. As this unit constitutes part of 
the medical regiment it will be directly under the command of 
the Commanding Officer thereof. The Commanding Officer of the 
medical regiment has a dual responsibility, that of Division 
Surgeon and Regimental Commander. When forming part of an 
Infantry Division the duties to be performed by the medical 
laboratory section will be under the immediate direction and super- 
vision of the assistant of the Division Surgeon, — the Division 
Sanitary Inspector. 

6 Functions. 

a. It will function under the immediate supervision and di- 
rection of the Division Sanitary Inspector and will be used by 
him as an instrument in the control and prevention of com- 
municable diseases and maintenance of the health of the divisional 
military personnel and animals. 

b. Its personnel will be concerned primarily in the laboratory 
and epidemiological investigation of outbreaks of communicable 
diseases, detection of carriers and advisory supervision of their 
treatment, application of immunity tests, supervision of administra- 
tion of prophylactic inoculations examination of food handlers 
for carriers, routine and special laboratory surveys, of military 
personnel and animals, special investigations of the "carrier"

[Bui. 10.] 



problem with view to the determination of the influence of carriers 
of pathogenic organisms on the spread of communicable diseases, 
experimental investigation of suggested prophylactic measures, and 
such other scientific investigations as may give promise of prac- 
tical benefit to the Army in disease prevention and maintenance 
of health. 

c. Under the direction of the division sanitary inspector the 
personnel will make such periodic laboratory examinations of 
the water supply, milk and other food supplies as may be neces- 
sary, will supervise the instruction of regimental and other per- 
sonnel in authorized methods of sterilization of water supply for 
use in the field and will make such scientific investigations of 
hygienic and general sanitary measures as may be considered 
desirable and of value to the military service. 

7. Equipment. Until the new equipment for this unit has 
been included in the equipment tables and is available for issu<i 
the equipment of these medical laboratory sections will be re- 
stricted to such essential and standard laboratory supplies as 
are in stock and listed in the Manual for the Medical Department. 

8. Using the foregoing as a guide it is believed that all officers 
concerned with the organization, equipment, and training of the 
new medical regiments can satisfactorily carry out those functions 
with such regulations, text books, manuals, etc., bearing on thos ; 
subjects as are now in existence. Considerable time must neces- 
sarily elapse before a general revision of all these reference works 
and equipment tables can be completed and made available for 
issue.

MILITIA BUREAU,

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 18. 
From: The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of 
Hawaii and Porto Rico, and the District of Columbia 
Militia. 

Subject: Retention on active duty status of National Guard Of- 
ficers rendered surplus by reorganization. 

1. The following instructions on the above subject from the 
Secretary of War to the Militia Bureau are published for the 
information and guidance of all concerned : 

"Officers of the National Guard units federally 
recognized prior to March 1, 1921, and rendered sur- 
plus through the reorganization of such units under 



[Bui. 10] 



8 



tables of organization, 1921, will be retained on active 
duty status as additional officers in such units until 
absorbed through vacancy or the annual expansion 
of the National Guard required under Section 62, 
National Defense Act, approved June 3, 191(5. Addi- 
tional officers not absorbed as herein provided by 
June 30, 1923, will be transferred to the National 
Guard Reserve." 

2. The above authority was based upon representations mad'' 
by this olfice that the number of surplus officers would amount 
to less than 100 individuals. In making this estimate the Militia 
Bureau counted upon the complete cooperation of the State au- 
thorities toward providing vacancies wherever possible for the sur- 
plus of officers under their jurisdiction, either through the elmina- 
tion of officers whose services have not been satisfactory or by 
transfer of commissioned personnel among their National Guard 
units or by holding places for such surplus officers when new units 
are being formed. Attention is invited to the fact that if vacanch s 
are not found by June 30, 1923, the surplus officers arc to be 
placed in the National Guard Reserve. 

3. The instructions transmitted herein apply to those officers 
rendered surplus through the elimination of positions formerly 
held by them in the organization or by a reduction in the /num- 
ber of officers prescribed for a unit. There is no warrant under 
this authority for carrying an officer on the active list at a rank 
higher than that prescribed for his position under the new tables 
of organization. For example, a battalion adjutant of an Engi- 
neer regiment was formerly carried as a captain while under the 
1921 Tables this position is now filled by a first lieutenant. This 
authority does not warrant carrying such a battalion adjutant 
in the grade of captain because he has been recognized in that 
grade. He must become a first lieutenant if he remains as bat- 
talion adjutant or a vacancy must be found for him as a captain. 

4. In several States the conversions of units to conform to 
new Tables of Organization are not being carried out as pre- 
scribed by Militia Bureau Circular Letter No. 5, January 26, 
1921. In this connection attention is invited to the provisions of 
Section 60 and 116 of the Act of Congress approved June 3, 1916.

COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA, 

THE ADJUTANT-GENERAL'S OFFICE, 

Harisburg, Pa., March 29, 1921. 

Bulletin ? 
No. 11. S 

1. The following Circular of the War Department is published 

for the information of all concerned : 



WAR DEPARTMENT, 

Washington, March 8, 1921. 

Circular ( 
No. 62. j 

ENLISTMENT IN THE NATIONAL GUARD AND ORGAN- 
IZED RESERVES OF SOLDIERS DISCHARGED FROM 
THE REGULAR ARMY. 

1. The approved policies of the War Department contemplate 
the organization of the military forces of the nation into one har- 
monious, well-balanced and effective Army, the Army of the United 
States, consisting, as provided by law, of the Regular Army, the 
National Guard, and the Organized Reserves. 

2. Each of these components has a distinct and separate mis- 
sion, and no reason exists for the interference of one with the other, 
nor that the development of one will conflict with, or retard, the 
progressive advancement of the others. 

A spirit of mutual support and sustained co-operation between 
all the components of the Army of the United States is highly es- 
sential to the development of the whole. 

3. The Regular Army and the National Guard will be developed 
to the strength authorized by law, and the Organized Reserves will 
be organized as divisions and auxiliary troops with complete officer 
personnel and sufficient enlisted personnel to be capable of rapid 
assimilation of the numbers required to form full-strenth units. 

4. Every trained soldier discharged from the Regular Army has 
a potential value to the nation, and if this training is maintained 
and prolonged in the National Guard or in the Organized Reserves, 
it will continue as an active asset to the Army of the United States. 

5. In order that discharged enlisted men who do not desire to 
re-enlist in the Regular Army may continue to serve in the Army 
of the United States, if they so desire, all such soldiers hereafter 
honorably discharged will be impressed with the importance of the 
obligation they owe to their country. 

6. The personal advantages of enlistment in the National Guard 
and Organized Reserves are substantially as follows : 

Service in the National Guard does not of necessity conflict with 
civil pursuits, and has many attractive features for honirably dis- 
charged soldier's returning to civil life. Among the more impor- 
tant of these are : 



[Bui. II.] 



a. The opportunities offered by association with young men 
active in the civil, business, and social life of the various com- 
munities, which cannot fail to be an aid and benefit to those desir- 
ing civil employment. 

b. Honorably discharged soldiers of the Regular Army are al- 
ways welcomed, on acount of their military training, in the armo- 
ries of the National Guard, where facilities for recreation and ac- 
quaintanceship are exceptional. 

c. Enlistment in the National Guard carries pay for privates at 
the rate of one dollar per drill of not less than one and one-half 
hours' duration, and an apropriate increase for specialists, non- 
commissioned officers, and officers, at the rate of one-thirtieth of the 
pay of like grades in the Regular Army, for each drill attended. 
Sixty drills per year are set as the maximum. In no case shall 
this drill pay exceed $500 per annum. In addition to drill pay 
such troops receive the full base pay of their grades during fifteen 
days' annual field service. 

d. There is no restriction upon promotion, which is based on 
efficiency and qualifications. Practically all commissioned officers 
of the National Guard began their service as privates in the ranks. 

7. Service in the Organized Reserves is attractive for discharged 
soldiers who desire to accept a limited obligation only and who de- 
sire to continue their training only during the annual fifteen days' 
field service period, as provided by law. During training periods 
members receive the pay and allowance of their grades. No other 
duty is required of the Organized Reserves excent in the event of 
war. 

An honorably discharged soldier of the Regular Army may en- 
list in the Enlisted Reserve Corps in the highest grade that he 
honorably held as shown on a discharge certificate. 

Regulations for the organization of combat and administrative 
units of the Organized Reserves have been promulgated. These 
regulations and regulations for the Enlisted Reserve Corps which 
will follow shortly contain complete information as to the require- 
ments for enlistment, the opportunities afforded for promotion, and 
the objects and details of the organization. 

Until the organization of the reserves is effected, soldiers honor- 
ably discharged from the Regular Army who desire to enlist in the 
Organized Reserves will be instructed to forward their applications 
to the commander of the department or corps area in which their 
homes are located, who will advise them at the proper time where 
enlistments may be made. 

8. The foregoing information relative to the National Guard 
and the Organized Reserves will be conveyed to each soldier honor- 
ably discharged from the Regular Army and who does not desire to- 
re-enlist therein, by his immediate commanding officer, at the time 
of his discharge, and such soldiers will be urged to continue their 
military service. Ever^ assistance will be rendered to secure this 
end. 



9. Department and corps area commanders will issue the neces- 
sary instructions to the end that soldiers honorably discharged from 



3 



[Bui. 11.] 



the Regular Army may be fully informed on the above subject, and 
that the detailed information required to "lace them in touch with 
local authorities may be made available.

By order of the Secretary of War : 

PEYTON C. MARCH, 
Major Genral. Chief of Staff. 

Official : 

P. C. HARRIS, 

The Adjutant-General. 

(Note. — Attention is invited to fourth paragraph of this Circular. 
The trained soldier of the National Guard as well as the Regular 
Army is a potential value to the Nation, and this National Guard 
soldier can continue his value as a military asset to the country by 
joining the National Guard Reserve upon completion of his 
enlistment in the National Guard. Every soldier who has the in- 
terest of his country at heart should seriously consider the advis- 
ability of continuing his service and training at least in a partial 
manner by joining the National Guard Reserve after his National 
Guard service. Adj. Gen. Pa.) 



2. The following Circular Letters of the Militia Bureau are 
published for the information of all concerned : 

WAR DEPARTMENT. 
Militia Bureau. 

Washington. March 17, 1921. 

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 19. 

From : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To : The Adjutants General of all States and Territories of 
Hawaii and Porto Rico and District of Columbia 
Militia. 

Subject : Transmission of Letter. 

1. The Militia Bureau has been requested to furnish to all State 
Adjutants General copy of the following letter for their informa- 
tion : 

"325,455 (Misc. Div.t December 7. 1920. 

From : The Adjutant General of the Army. 

To : The Commanding Generals of all Corps Areas. 

Subject : Designation and location of units of the National Guard 
and the Organized Reserves. 

1. Section 3a of the Act of June 4. 1920. prescribes in part that : 

"Subject to general regulations approved by the Secre- 
tary of War, the location and designation of units of the 
National Guard and the Organized Reserves entirely com- 
prised within the limits of any State or Territory shall be 



[Bui. ll.l 



4 



determined by a board, a majority of whom shall be reserve 
officers, including reserve officers who hold or have held 
commissions in the National Guard and recommended for 
this duty by the Governor of the State or Territory con- 
cerned." , 

2. In accordance with the above provision of law, each Corps 
area commander will appoint a board of officers to function in each 
State of his corps area, and in the District of Columbia. Each 
board shall consist of one officer of the Regular Army and not less 
than two nor more than four reserve officers who have been recom- 
mended for this duty by the Governor of the State, or by the Com- 
manding General of the National Guard of the District of Colum- 
bia. (Hereafter in this letter the words "State" and "Governor" 
should be construed to include the words "District of Columbia" 
and "Commanding General of the National Guard of the District of 
Columbia," respectively.) 

For the location and designation of units of the National Guard, 
a majority of the reserve officers of each board will, when practi- 
cable, be composed of reserve officers who hold or have held com- 
missions in the National Guard; in the case of units of the Organ- 
ized Reserves, a majority will, when practicable, be comnosed of 
reserve officers who do not hold commissions in the National Guard. 

3. As soon as practicable after receipt of this communication, 
each corps area commander will make request, by authority of the 
Secretary of War, rmon the Governor of each State within his 
corps area, for .the names of a suitable number of reserve officers, 
including reserve officers who hold or have held commissions in the 
National Guard, who are considered by the Governor to be qualified 
for duty on the local boards. The reserve personnel of the boards 
will then be chosen by the corps area commanders from among the 
officers thus recommended. Before appointing the boards, the corps 
area commander should assure himself by investigation through the 
War Department or otherwise, that the officers selected for appoint- 
ment do. in fact, hold commissions as reserve officers as contem- 
plated above, and that they are willing to serve. If it should arise 
that an officer has been recommended by the Governor of the State 
foncernerl who is not a reserve officer, such officer sbmild be fdvis°d 
by the Corps area commander to submit to The Adjutant General 
of the Army, without delay, his application for appointment a« a 
reserve officer, and the corps area commander will report each case 
to The Adjutant General of the Army in order that action on such 
applications may be expedited. At the same time it should b" made 
clear to the reserve officers concerned that since the functions of 
the hoard are of a loeal nature, the reserve officers thereon will not 
be placed on an active duty status by the War Department. 

Th° officers of the Regular Armv detailed for duty on these 
boards will be selected from the corps area commander's staff or 
from the inspector-instructors on duty in the corps area. When 
practicable, the same officer of the Regular Army will be a member 
of the local board of everv State within the corps area in order that 
the work of the boards in the several States may be more easily 
co-ordinated. 

4. The order appointing n local board should be issued as soon 
as practicable after the allotments of units of the National Guard 
or the Organized Reserves have been definitelv made, and should 
state the time and place at which the board should have its initial 
meeting. 



5 [Bui. 11.] 

5. Previous to the first meeting of the board a letter of instruc- 
tions shall be furnished it by the corps area commander, setting 
forth the policies of the War Department in connection with the 
location and designation of units, as well as any other instruc- 
tions which the corp area commander may deem necessary. 

6. The duties of the local board are : 

(a) To determine and report upon the location of units of the 
National Guard or Organized Reserves, which it is planned, shall 
be entirely comprised within the limits of the State in which the 
board is convened. In view of the provisions of Section 68 of the 
Act of June 3, 1916, which section is still in force, the board should 
take cognizance of the rights of the State to determine and fix the 
location of the National Guard units and headquarters within its 
borders, by ascertaining the wishes of the State in this matter. 

(b) To determine and report upon the numerical or other desig- 
nations of all units of the National Guard or Organized Reserves, 
which, it is planned, shall be entirely comprised within the State in 
which the board is convened. 

(c) In cases where the divisional units of the National Guard or 
the Organized Reserves which have been, or it is planned will be 
allotted to the State do not make up one or more complete Infantry 
divisions, to recommend to the corps area commander the numerical 
designations of the Infantry divisions which should include these 
units. 

(d) To list and report upon instances where the board departs, 
in designating a unit, from the system of numbering mentioned be- 
low, 7(e), and to state the reasons for so doing. 

(e) To prepare a report in quadruplicate containing a concise 
statement of the conclusions of the board on each of the items men- 
tioned above. One copy of this report will be retained by the board 
and the other three transmitted to the corps area commander. 

7. In its work a local board should be guided by the following : 

(a) It is not expected that the location and designation of all 
units to be maintained in the National Guard and the Organized 
Reserves under the reorganization plans, can be determined at once. 
At the present time the boards will concern themselves only with 
the units which are now in existence and those which it is expected 
will be organized within about the next two years. 

(b) The policy of the War Department with respect to the desig- 
nation of the units of the National Guard and the Organized Re- 
serves is found in indorsement (AG 325.455, Misc. Div., dated Au- 
gust^, 1920), to the Chief, Militia Bureau, a copy of which was 
furnished each corps area commander. 

(c) Paragraph 18 of letter (AG 323 misc. div., September 20, 
1920) to each corps area commander lists the numbers which have 
been reserved for use as divisional designations for the National 
Gaurd in the several corps areas. 

(d) Paragraph 19 of the same letter indicates, in general, the 
manner in which corps troops are to be designated. 

(e) The accompanying tables set forth the system of numbering 
which will be used for the purpose of designating such units within 
Infantry divisions for which the local boards do not properly 
determine other designations. Tables for corps and army troops 
will be provided later. 



[Bui. 11.] 6 

8. Upon receipt of the reports of the boards, the corps area 
commander will decide upon the numerical designation of the In- 
fantry divisions or other units which cannot be entirely comprised 
within a single State, but can be comprised within two or more 
States of the Corps area, and will forward two copies of each 
report to the War Department by an indorsement containing de- 
cisions made by him and such other comment as he may care to 
make. 

He will also recommend designations for units which will not 
be entirely comprised within his corps area.

COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA, 
THE ADJUTANT-GENERAL'S OFFICE, 

Harrisburg, Pa., April 1, 1921. 

Bulletin ) 
No. 12. j 

1. The following Circular Letters of the Militia Bureau are 
published for the information and guidance of all concerned : 

WAR DEPARTMENT, 
MILITIA BUREAU, 
Washington, 

March 23, 1921. 

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 22. 
From : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To : The Adjutants Generals of all States, Territories of 
Hawaii and Porto Rico and the District of Columbia 
Militia. 

Subject : Errors in Tables of Organization and Changes in unit 
Designations. 

1. The following changes should be made in the tables of organ- 
ization recently issued : 

(a) The table for "Engineer Lettered Company" and 
"Engineer Company, Mounted Battalion" is in error in 
showing only 1 Staff Sergeant in the column headed "65-12 
men" — 2 Staff Sergeants should be shown in this column. 
The total shown is correct. 

(b) The table for "Headquarters and Service Company, 
Engineer Regiment" for Division, Corps or Army assign- 
ment is correct for the Combat Engineer regiment allotted 
to a Division. The following changes are required before 
this table can be made applicable throughout to a Corps 
or Army Engineer Regiment : 

The Horseshoer, shown as a l}th Class Specialist in the 
table, is a 5th Class Specialist in a Corps or Army Engineer 
Regiment. 

The Demolition Man shown as a, 6th Class Specialist 
in the table is not authorized for a Corps or Army Engineer 
Regiment. This Specialist is authorized for a Divisional 
Engineer regiment only. 

(c) The table showing "Officers for Headquarters Units" 
of the various branches as originally issued was in error 
in showing "2 Majors and 2 Captains'' for a Regimental 



[Bui. 12.] 



2 



Headquarters of Infantry. A corrected copy of this table 
was later issued showing 1 Major (Regimental Machine 
Gun Officer) and 8 Captains. It should be explained that 
one of these Captains acts as Regimental Adjutant, one 
acts as Regimental Supply Officer and the third commands 
the Regimental Headquarters Company. The latter officer 
is the same officer as the Captain shown in the Militia 
Bureau table applying to a reduced strength Headquarters 
Company for an Infantry Regiment. It should be noted 
that the supply officer included above is a different indi- 
vidual from the Captain who commands the Service com- 
pany of an Infantry Regiment. 

(d) The foot note appended to the modified Militia 
Bureau table for a Motor Repair Company Q. M. C, should 
be disregarded. Units heretofore allotted as "Motor Car 
Companies," "Truck Companies, Q. M. C," and "Truck 
Companies" are all to be known in the future as Motor 
Transport Companies. This does not apply to "Truck 
Companies Artillery." The organization of Motor Trans- 
port Companies is covered by Regular Army T. O. 95-P, 
an additional efficer (1st lieutenant) being added for 
National Guard Motor Transport companies in the Militia 
Bureau table covering "Officers for Headquarters Units" 
of all branches. Since the number of enlisted men pre- 
scribed by table 95-P is less than 50 no modified table for 
this unit was prepared by the Militia Bureau. National 
Guard Motor Transport companies presented for recognition 
should enroll the number of enlisted men prescribed in the 
Regular Army table. 

2. The attention of all concerned is invited to the following 
changes in unit designations which have been authorized by the 
War Department since the publication of the National Guard 
allotments : 

Corps Q. M. C. Transport is now designated as Corps 
Train Q. M. C. 

Headquarters Motor Command is now designated as 
Motor Transport Command. 

Service Park Unit is now designated as Motor Repair 
Section. No provision is made for the allotment of Motor 
Repair battalions to the National Guard organization. 

3. It is requested that the Tables involved in the above changes 
lie corrected, and that, where necessary, officers concerned with 
the organizations affected by these changes be personally notified 
of them.

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 23. 
From : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To : Adjutants General of all States, Territories of Hawaii 
and Porto Rico and the District of Columbia Militia. 

Subject : Changes in National Guard Regulations, Pay Hospital 
Attendance, Etc. 

The following recommendations of Changes in National Guard 
Regulations were approved March 19, 1921, and are published 
for the information of all concerned : 

"(a) Strike out the present paragraph 722, on page 194. 
Change paragraph "723" to read "722 ;" add as paragraph 
723 the following : 

723. "Officers and enlisted men of the Federally recog- 
nized National Guard who, while participating in authorized 
encampments, become ill or injured from cause not due to 
their misconduct, may be sent, upon recommendation of 
medical officers, approved by competent administrative 
authorities of the organization, to civilian or private hos- 
pitals for care and treatment, and the resulting charges 
paid from Federal funds appropriated for the National 
Guard (provided sufficient funds are available) : Provided, 
however, that it be impracticable to send such cases to a 
government hospital for treatment and that the nature of 
the illness or injury is such that, with the means and 
equipment prescribed for the organization attending the 
encampment the officers and men referred to cannot be 
given proper care and treatment at the encampment : Pro- 
vided further, that expenses of the nature referred to, so 
far as Federal funds are concerned, are limited to the 
period of the encampment, the law not authorizing medical 
care and treatment at public expense in a civilian or private 
hospital after the date that the encampment officially ends 
(see Dec. Compt. Treasury, Jan. 19, 1921). Charges of 
civilian or private hospitals under the provisions of this 
paragraph may, if such services are rendered necessary by 
the circumstances, include room fees, subsistence charges 
(for enlisted men only), medicines, special nurses, operating 
room fees, anesthetics, surgical fees, and professional ser- 
vice fees, but all vouchers in payment of such charges must 
be submitted to and approved by the Militia Bureau before 
payment is made. Such vouchers will not be approved by 
the Militia Bureau unless it appears that the charges were 
actually necessary and reasonable, and that precaution was 
taken by those responsible to see that the necessary services 
were obtained to the best financial advantage of the govern- 
ment."

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 24. 
From : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To : The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of 
Hawaii and Porto Rico and the District of Columbia 
Militia, Officers in Charge of National Guard Affairs 
and Inspector-Instructors. 

Subject : Instructions in finger-printing. 

1. The inclosed instructions in Finger Printing are published 
for the information of all concerned. 

2. Where States are provided with facilities for making mimeo- 
graph copies it is suggested that the necessary number of such 
copies be made for distribution to all medical officers. 

3. When provisions for mimeographing are not at hand, requi- 
sition may be made and forwarded to the Chief, Militia Bureau 
for the required number of copies for distribution at the rate of 
one to each medical officer. 

By direction of the Secretary of War : 

J. Mcl. CARTER, 
Brig. Gen., V. 8. Army. 

(NOTE— ^ Where surgeons attached to organizations have the 
proper equipment and facilities for taking of finger prints, this 
work should be completed prior to the annual encampment, and 
all finger prints filed with the retained copy of enlistment paper 
of the soldier concerned at his home station. Where there is no 
finger print outfit at the station of the company, this work will 
be done at the annual encampment under supervision of the medical 
officers. Adj. Gen. Pa.) 

FINGER PRINTING 
MATERIALS AND APPLIANCES 
These consist of : 

A zinc-faced ink-plate on which the ink is to be spread and 
a composition roller with removable handle for spreading the ink. 

A tube of printer's ink. 

Pads of unglazed paper for practice w r ork. 

The above form part of the "Recuiting Outfit, Emergency 
M. M. D." and may be obtained on requisition made in the usual 
way. 

Benzene for cleaning the plate and roller and the fingers of 
the subject is necessary. 

Cloths for cleaning the roller and plate, and for wrapping them 
when not in use. 



5 



[Bui. 12.] 



CARE OF THE APPLIANCES 

The ink plate is easily scratched and dented and the roller is 
soft and easily defaced. Neither is fit for use unless perfectly 
smooth. They should be carefully cleaned with benzene after use 
and all old ink removed, then wrapped in cloths to keep them from 
damage. The roller is easiest cleaned and cared for if it is taken 
out of the handle. The ink tube should be kept capped to pre- 
vent thickening. 



TO PREPARE THE PLATE AND ROLLER FOR USE 

See that both are absolutely clean. Any old ink, dust or particles 
of dirt on either will make good work impossible. 

Distribute the ink on the surface of the plate ( rather than on 
the roller), in thin dots about the size of the end of a match- 
stick. Eight cr ten such dots are sufficient for the size of plate 
issued with the outfit, and each dot should contain very little 
ink. The tendency is to use too much ink. It is impossible to 
get satisfactory prints if the film is too thick and it is better to 
use too little ink at first and add more if it is absolutely necessary, 
rather than to use too much and have to clean part of it off. 

Use the roller to spread the ink on the plate until it forms a 
uniform and very thin layer over both plate and roller. This 
will take considerable rolling, but if the film is not even or if it 
is too thick, the results will not be good. The layer of ink should 
be so thin that when the finger is pressed into it and lifted, it 
will leave the plate almost clean. 

The roller should be used as often as necessary to redistribute 
the ink and enough ink should be added in small dots from time 
to time to keep the film the right thickness. 

If the ink becomes too thick to spread easily it can be thinned 
on the plate by a little benzene, but it is very easy to get the 
ink too thin. 



HANDLING THE BLANK FORMS 

The form must be held firmly while the impressions are being 
made. It should be located on the table so that the finger can 
be brought into the space intended for it without the rest of the 
hand coming into contact with the form. This is done by folding 
part of the form down at right angles to the edge of the table 
along the lines indicated on it, thus dropping part of the form 
not being used out of the way. The table should be of such 
height that the hand will rest on it when the forearm is bent 
at a right angle with the arm. 

If much work is to be done it is a convenience to make a 
board large enough to take the form and leave room for a clamp 
by which it can be attached to the table, the board having a 
wooden batten along one side as a guide for the blank and a 
clamp to hold the blank in place against the guide. Such ar- 
rangement saves time in locating the blank and prevents slipping, 
which if it occurs will ruin the print. 



[Bui. 12.]

PREPARATION OF THE FINGERS FOR PRINTING 

Ordinarily none is needed. If the grooves on the finger-tip are 
filled with dirt, use a little benzene to clean them. But be sure 
that the finger is dry before making prints from it, or the benzene 
on it will make the ink too thin and the print will be blurred. 

DIRECTIONS TO THE SUBJECT 

The subject is inclined to help the operator in making the 
print by using pressure and trying to roll the finger in inking and 
printing. He should be told that all the work is to be done by 
the operator and that he must not make any attempt to assist. 

KINDS OF IMPRESSIONS 

These are of two kinds ; rolled and plain. The rolled impres- 
sion is the most important and is the impression used in recording 
the individual fingers. The plain impression is used for the print 
of all the fingers made simultaneously. 

TO MAKE THE ROLLED IMPRESSION 

Stand facing the blank, with the ink-plate to the right of it. 
Take the left forearm of the subject between your right elbow 
and your body, to control it. Grasp the finger to be printed 
with the forefinger and thumb of both your hands and tuck the 
fingers of the subject's hand which you are not going to use down 
into his palm out of the way. 

Rotate the finger as far as it will comfortably go to the sub- 
ject's left (through about 45 degrees), and lay it in this position 
on the plate so that the whole terminal joint will come on the 
inked surface. Then rotate the finger to the subject's right through 
about ninety degrees or as far as it will comfortably go to his 
right. Do not use much pressure and take care not to slide the 
finger on the plate. Do not let the subject use any pressure 
himself or make any attempt to rotate the finger. 

Lift the finger off the plate, turn it through about ninety 
degrees to the subject's left again, lay it down in this position 
in the space intended for it on the form, with the whole length 
of the terminal joint inside the space and at right angles to the 
horizontal line bounding the space, and rotate it through ninety 
degrees to the subject's right, using even pressure and taking 
care not to slip it. 

Then lift the finger off the form without rotating it back to 
the left in the slightest degree and without sliding it. 

Proceed in this way with the fingers of both hands, and with 
the right index finger in the separate space provided for it on 
the briefing fold of the form. 

TO MAKE THE PLAIN IMPRESSION 

Bring the four fingers of the subject side by side and lay their 
tips on the plate. Then press each terminal joint down lightly 
to ink it, lift the hand by the wrist, transfer it to the proper 
place on the form, lay the terminal joints down on the paper 



7 



LBul. 12.] 



without sliding them and press each joint down gently to make 
the print. Then lift the hand straight up without pulling or 
sliding. 

The subject must not try to locate his fingers himself or use 
any pressure. 

SUCCESSFUL PRINTS 

Success in making impressions depends (1) on the inking of 
the finger. If too much or too little ink is used, or if the ink 
is dirty or unevenly distributed on the plate, the print will be 
worthless. (2) on the care with which the finger is rolled on the 
form. If it is slipped or pulled, if the pressure is not even, if 
the whole width of the pulp of the finger is not printed, i. e., if 
the finger is not rolled enough, or if the print does not extend 
down to the crease between the terminal and the second phalanx 
the print is not satisfactory. 

A successful print is almost as clear as an engraving and need 
not necessarily be very black. It should show each loop and whorl 
so clearly that they can be easily recognized and the ridges and 
furrows so distinctly that they can be counted without difficulty. 
If any of the features of the print are blurred and unrecognizable, 
or if in any part of it the lines and furrows cannot be counted, 
the print is valueless, for it cannot be classified for filing. The 
impressions dry rapidly but care should be taken not to allow 
them to be rubbed or handled for some ten minutes after they have 
been made.

COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA, 
THE ADJUTANT-GENERAL'S OFFICE, 

Harrisburg, Pa., April 18, 1921. 



1. The following indorsement from the Militia Bureau relating to blank 
forms is published for the information of all officers. Paragraph 1 of the in- 
dorsement refers to a specific blank form. Paragraph 2 applies to all blank 
forms, and every officer using blank forms is therefore directed to exercise 
the greatest economy in the use of all War Department forms : 

WAR DEPARTMENT, 
MILITIA BUREAU, 
Washington, 
To : The Adjutant General of Pennsylvania. 



April 15, 1921. 



1. The original requisition for 5,000 each of Forms 29 and 29a was 
sent approved to The Adjutant General of the Army who reported under 
date of March 11, 1921, that the supply of these forms was exhausted but 
that the number requested would be mailed as soon as available for issue. 

2. It was recently learned that the appropriation of the office of The 
Adjutant General from which blank forms are obtained was exhausted and 
that no further printing could be paid for during the current fiscal year. 
Upon learning of this the Militia Bureau at once took steps to obtain a 
supply of each of these forms to be paid for from National Guard funds. 
There may be considerable delay in obtaining the forms as Congressional 
work takes precedence over the Departmental in the Government Printing 
Office. 

By direction of the Secretary of War : 

J. Mel. CARTER, 
Brig. Gen., U. 8. Army, 

Chief of Bureau. 

2. Herewith is published Circular Letters Nos. 25, 26, 27 and 28, of the 
Militia Bureau, for the information and guidance of all concerned : 

WAR DEPARTMENT,

Washington, 
CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 25 
From: The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of Hawaii and 

Porto Rico, and the District of Columbia Militia. 

Subject: Returns of Strength. 

1. Effective April 1, 1921, Forms Nos. 101 and 103, Militia Bureau, 
will be discontinued and in their stead the following forms will be used 



March 26, 1921. 



[Bui. 13.] 



in rendering monthly returns to the Militia Bureau by the federally recog- 
nized National Guard organizations of your State : 

Form 28 (Monthly return for State staff, brigade and division hq). 
Form 30 (Monthly strength return for all companies, troops, batteries, 
etc). 

Form 41 (Monthly strength return for all battalions, squadrons, regi- 
ments, or units larger than companies). 

Form 43 (Record of events and changes in commissioned personnel). 
(To accompany each return.) 

2. Form 28, A. G. O., will be rendered by the Adjutant General of the 
State direct to the Militia Bureau for the State staff corps and departments. 

Form 28, A. G. O., will also be rendered by the brigade and division 
commanders direct to the Militia Bureau for their headquarters and head- 
quarters company, troop or battery only. 

Form 30, A. G. O., will be rendered by each company, troop or battery 
commander, direct to the battalion, squadron or regimental commander for 
consolidation on Form 41, A. G. O., but in the event such separate units 
do not form a part of federally recognized battalions, squadrons or regiments, 
Form 30, A. G .0., should be forwarded by each independent company com- 
mander direct to the Militia Bureau. 

Form 41, A. G. O., will be rendered by each battalion, squadron or regi- 
mental commander direct to the Militia Bureau. This form is a con- 
solidated report of Form 30, A. G. O., submitted by the several unit com- 
manders of the battalion, squadron or regiment. 

Form 43, A. G. O. One copy of this form will accompany each Form 28, 
30 and 41. In addition to showing record of events, all changes in com- 
missioned personnel for the period rendered should be indicated by names 
thereon. 

There are inclosed sample copies of the prescribed forms. 

In case one card is not sufficient for any organization, two cards will be 
used. 

3. A copy of Circular No. 26, A. G. O., 1921, which explains in detail 
the above-mentioned forms, is inclosed. These are the same forms as used 
for the Regular service and it is the desire of the Militia Bureau that all 
organizations render these returns on the same dates and in the same man- 
ner as in the Regular service so that there will be no difference between 
returns when in the State or when in the Federal service. 

4. Approximately a three months' supply of the above-named forms has 
been furnished your office under separate cover. Envelopes suitable for 
mailing the returns to the Chief, Militia Bureau, were included with the 
forms. 

By direction of the Secretary of War : 

J. Mcl. CARTER,

NOTE — The following Circular No. 26, War Department, January 27, 
1921, is published in connection with Circular Letter No. 25, of the Militia 
Bureau, as explanatory thereof. Circular No. 26, War Department, should 
be carefully studied before monthly returns of strength are accomplished. 
Circular No. 26, War Department, applies to the National Guard as well 
as to the Regular Army ; reference is made to Form No. 42, A. G. O., in 
this Circular, but this form is only used in the Regular Army and in- 
struction pertaining thereto need not be followed.)

CIRCULAR NO. 28. 



PREPARATION OF STRENGTH RETURNS. 

1. a. The forms for strength returns of headquarters, Form No. 28, 
A. G. O., of regiments, separate and detached battalions, and similar 
separate units, Form No. 41, A. G. O., and of separate and detached com- 
panies and detachments. Form No. 30, A. G. O., have been revised, and 
will be issued to the service as soon as received from the printer. Two 
new forms have been devised for use in connection with strength returns, 
Form No. 42, A. G. O., Return of Attached and Casuals of Another Branch, 
and Form No. 43, A. G. O., Record of Events. Upon reecipt of the new 
and revised forms, the use of the old forms will be discontinued. 

6. The new forms for strength returns will also supersede the following 
forms for strength returns issued by certain staff corps and departments, 
both for returns to be furnished to the chief of the branch concerned as 
well as to The Adjutant General of the Army, and upon receipt of the new 
forms the use of the old forms will be discontinued : 

Q. M. C. Form No. 434. 
. Form MTC 477. 
O. O. Form 6028. 
Form No. 285— C. S. O. 
Form No. 1, D. M. A. 
(See also subpar. d, par. 12). ). 

c. For purpose of reference and requisition, *>»e new and revised forms 
will be known as follows : 

Form No. 28, A. G. O. : Headquarters Strength Return. 
Form No. 30, A. G. O. : Company Strength Return. 
Form No. 41, A. G. O. : Regimental Strength Return. 
Form No. 42, A. G. O. : Return of Attached and Casuals of Another 

Branch. 

Form No. 43, A. G. O. : Record of Events. 

2. Form No. 28, Form No. 30. Form No. 41, and Form No. 42, A. G. 
O., are the basic (master) returns from which the strength of the Army 
and the different branches is determined by the War Department. They 
also furnish valuable statistical information. In order that required data 
may be obtained by the War Department it is necessary that every officer, 
member of Army Nurse Corps, warrant officer, and enlisted men of the 
active list, and every officer, warrant officer, and enlisted man of the re- 
tired list on active duty be. accounted for each month on one of these four 
returns. Officers, warrant officers, enlisted men, and others concerned in 
the preparation of strength returns are enjoined to exercise great care 
in compiling returns to the end that errors may be eliminated. 

3. a. The word "Branch" as used in connection with strength returns 
will be understood to mean those arms, staff corps and departments pre- 
scribed by law for the Regular Army and which are to be accounted for 
separately. The branches are Infantry, Cavalrv, Field Artillery, Coast 
Artillery Corps, Air Service, Corps of Engineers, Signal Corps, General 
Staff Corps, Adjutant General's Department, Inspector General's Depart- 
ment, Judge Advocate General's Department, Quartermaster Corps, Finance 
Department, Medical Department, Ordnance Department, Chemical War- 



[Bui. 13.]

fare Service, Chaplains, Detached List (detached officers and detached en- 
listed men), Retired List (officers, warrant officers, and enlisted men), 
Philippine Scouts, and warrant officers. 

b. The branch Philippine Scouts embraces the enlisted men thereof ; 
Philippine Scout officers not recommissioned in one of the branches of the 
Regular Army under the provisions of section 22a, National Defense Act, 
as amended by the act of Congress approved June 4, 1920, and Philippine 
Scout officers who are citizens of the Philippine Islands. Former Philippine 
Scout officers recommissioned in one of the branches of the Regular Army 
under the provisions of the act of Congress cited above, and all other officers 
holding commissions in one of the branches of the Regular Army, on duty 
with a Philippine Scout organization, will be accounted for as belonging 
to the branch in which they are commissioned and not as part of the 
Philippine Scouts branch. 

c. A separate strength return, or return of attached and casuals of 
another branch, according to circumstances (par. 4), will be rendered for 
each branch except that no separate strength return or return of attached 
and casuals of another branch will be prepared for a branch composed of 
officers only, such as the General Staff Corps, Adjutant General's Depart- 
ment, Inspector General's Department, Judge Advocate General's Depart- 
ment, and Chaplains nor for warrant officers, but all branches will be ac- 
counted for on the back of the regimental, company or headquarters 
strength return under "Totals (F. H. and K.) from other branches." 

4. Forms for strength returns will be used as follows : 

a. Form No. 30, A. G. O., Company Strength Return, (1) for separate 
or detached companies or detachments of all branches ; and (2) for all other 
units, establishments and institutions similar in organization and administra- 
tion to a separate company (Par. 2, S. R. No. 57). 

b. Form No. 41, A. G. O., Regimental Strength Return, (1) for regi- 
ments, separate battalions, and similar units of all branches ; (2) for coast 
defense commands, and (3) all other organizations, establishments and in- 
stitutions similar in organization and administration to a regiment or 
separate battalion. 

c. Form No. 42, A. G. O., Return of Attached and Casuals of Another 
Branch, (1) in connection with Form No. 41 or Form No. 30 for returns 
of attached and casuals of another branch with a regiment separate or 
detached battalion or company, or similar units ; and (2) in connection 
with Form No. 28 for returns of all except the predominant branch of head- 
quarters. (See par. 3 c and subpar. d (2) ). 

d. (1) Form No. 28, A. G. O., Headquarters Strength Return, for the 
return of the predominant branch (a) of headquarters of brigades and all 
higher tactical units; (b) of headquarters of territorial departments, corps 
areas, districts, posts, and camps, and (c) of all other headquarters . at 
which officers and enlisted men are on duty and not accounted for on the 
basic strength return of an organization or other headquarters, Forms Nos. 
30, 41, and 28. 

(2) At each headquarters for which a return is rendered one branch 
will be designated as the predominant branch and the return of that branch 
will be prepared on Form No. 28, as directed in subparagraph d (1). The 
returns of all other branches represented at headquarters for which a re- 
turn is required will be prepared on Form No. 42. (See subpar. c (2) and 
(3) c. 

The predominant branch having been determined and a return submitted 
no change of predominant branch will be made, and a return for that 
branch will always be rendered whether or not any personnel is to be ac- 



5 



[Bui. 13.] 



counted for. In general, the predominant branch should be the most 
numerous branch represented in the command to which the headquarters 
pertains ; e. g., in an Infantry Division, Infantry ; Cavalry division, Cav- 
alry ; Coast Artillery brigade, Coast Artillery ; etc. 

5. a. When a return of attached and casuals of another branch (Form 
No. 42) has been rendered for any branch and that branch is no longer 
represented with the organization or headquarters, a final return will be 
submitted showing the disposition of personnel remaining at date of last 
return. 

o. When Form No. 42, A. G. O., is used in connection with Headquarters 
Return as contemplated in subparagraphs c and d, paragraph 4, the words 
'ATTACHED AND CASUALS OF" in the caption of the return will be 
stricken out. 

6. Predominant race will be indicated on Form No. 30 and Form No. 41 
by a cross (X) in the appropriate space in the upper left hand corner of 
the first page. For troops other than white or colored, race will be shown 
by abbreviation, such as '"Phil," "Haw," etc., in the space provided for such 
notation. 

7. Branch will be shown in the supper right hand corner as "Infantry," 
"Cavalry," "Medical Department," "Quartermaster Corps," etc. Only one 
branch will be included on a single return. Attached and casuals of other 
branches with regiments, separate and detached battalions and companies, 
and similar separate and detached units, will be accounted for on returns 
of attached and casuals of another branch, Form No. 42, a separate return 
being rendered for each branch. (Pars. 3 c and 4 c). 

8. a. In the column "Organizations" on Form No. 41, component units 
will be shown as "Regtl Hq. and Hq. Co.," "Bn. Hq. and Hq. Co.," "Bty 
B," "Trp A," "3d Co.," etc. In regiments and battalions having a head- 
quarters company, the regimental or battalion headquarters and head- 
quarters company will be combined on one line. 

b. In the columns "Subdivisions of Branch" on Form No. 28, Form No. 
30, and Form No. 42, A. G. O., the subdivisions of the branch, or services 
within the branch, will be shown, each on a separate line. For example, 
in the Medical Department branch, the Medical Corps, Dental Corps, 
Veterinary Corps, Medical Administrative Corps, Enlisted Men, Army 
Nurse Corps, and Contract Surgeons will be shown on separate lines. Like- 
wise in the Quartermaster Corps branch, the Supply Service, Construction 
Service, Transportation Service, and Remount Service will be shown on 
separate lines. 

If the branch is not composed of different subdivisions or services, the 
lines in this column will not be filled in. 

9. The discharge of an enlisted man on account of fraudulent enlistment 
for minority concealed will be recorded in the column "Minority" under 
"Losses" since last monthly return. All other cases of discharge, as dis- 
tinguished from honorable and dishonorable discharge, will be recorded in 
the colmun with blank heading under "Losses," a heading indicating reason 
for discharge being inserted. 

10. In order to describe definitely their status with relation to the 
organization or headquarters for which returns are rendered, and to con- 
nect strength returns and returns of attached and casuals of another branch 
with morning reports, personnel with the organization or headquarters will 
be classified as follows : A, belonging to the organization ; B, attached of 
the same branch, belonging to another organization; C, attached of the 
same branch, unassigned to any organization. D, casuals of the same 
branch, belonging to another organiaztion ; E, casuals of the same branch, 
unassigned to any organization ; F, attached by Tables of Organization from 



[Bui. 13.] 



6 



another branch; G, attached of another branch, belonging to an organiza- 
tion ; H, attached of another branch unassigned to any organiaztion ; I, 
casuals of another branch, belonging to an organization, and K, casuals 
of another branch unassigned to any organization. 

11. Attached and casuals from other organizations and headquarters 
(B and D, on Form No. 28, Form No. 30 and Form No. 41, and G and I, 
on Form No. 42), will be fully accounted for the strength return of their 
own organizations or headquarters and they will not be included in compil- 
ing "Strength, Present and Absent, by Rank and Grade" and "Alterations 
since last Monthly Return." 

12. Officers and enlisted men who join an organization or headquarters 
by assignment, transfer, or attachment, or as casuals, and are separated 
therefrom by transfer, by relief from attachment, or by departure in case 
of casuals, before the end of the month, will not be shown under gains or 
losses in the table of Alterations Since Last Monthly Return. In all other 
cases gains and losses will be shown in the appropriate columns, however 
short a time the officers or enlisted men have served with or been carried on 
the rolls of the organization. 

13. Strength returns on Form No. 30 and Form No. 41, will be ac- 
companied by Record of Events, Form No. 43, and as many returns of 
attached and casuals of other branches, Form No. 42, as may be neces- 
sary to account for personnel of all branches attached to or casually with 
the organization or detachment. 

14. Copies of strength returns may be made by carbon process but 
each must be clear and distinct, and signed. When preparing copies by 
carbon process care will be taken to see that the sheets register accurately 
in order to insure that data will appear in proper columns and on proper 
lines. 

15. The original and copies of strength returns and returns of attached 
and casuals of another branch will be disposed of as indicated below. 

a. (1) In all eases except detached battalions and companies the 
original will be sent directly to The Adjutant General of the Army. (Par. 
2, S. R. No. 57.) 

(2) In case of detached battalions and companies the original will be 
sent directly to the regimental separate battalion, or similar unit com- 
mander, unless the detached battalion or company is at the time in a dif- 
ferent department or corps area from that of the regiment, separate bat- 
talion, or similar unit, in which case the original will be sent directly to 
The Adjutant General of the Army, as required for strength returns of a 
regiment. When a detached battalion or company renders a strength re- 
turn directly to The Adjutant General of the Army the words "less 

Battalion," or "less Company " will follow the designation of 

the regiment, separate battalion, or other similar separate unit in the cap- 
tion of the strength return, Form No. 41, A. G. 0., and the strength of the 
detached battalion or company will not be included in the return of the 
regiment or separate battalion in this case. 

b. A copy will be retained with the records of the organization. 

c. A copy will be furnished to the next higher administrative com- 
mander when the station of the headquarters of such commander is different 
from that of the organization rendering the return. When stations are the 
same, the retained copy (subpar. b) will be sent to the headquarters of the 
higher administrative commander for use in preparation of post or camp re- 
turn, after which it will be returned to the organization for file.

[Bui. 13.] 



d. A copy of the strength return of each organization or detachment cf 
a staff corps or department and a copy of the return of attached and casuals 
(Form No. 42) of a staff corps or department will be furnished to the 
cnief of the staff corps or department concerned. This copy will be for- 
warded through the department or corps area commander. 

e. If the organiaztion is not a part of a regiment, separate battalion 
or similar separate unit but is a part of a division or separate brigade and 
separated therefrom a copy will be furnished to the division or separate 
brigade commander. 

16. Monthly strength returns should be rendered on the first day of each 
month. When for any reason the rendition is delayed beyond the fifth 
of the month, a letter of explanation will be forwarded with the original 
and each copy of the return, except in campaign. 

17. Before being mailed, strength returns and returns of attached and 
casuals of another branch will be verified as indicated below : 

a. (1) The total of column "A" under "Officers" and the total of column 
"A" under "Enlisted Men," on the first page of the return, must be the 
same as "Total Officers" and "Total Enlisted Men," respectively, on line 
"A", under "Strength, Present and Absent, by Rank and Grade." Simi- 
larly, the total of columns "C" and "E" under "Officers" and the total of 
colums "C" and "E" under "Enlisted Men," on the first page of the return, 
must be the same respectively, as "Total Officers," and "Total Enlisted 
Men," on line "C and E" under "Strength, Present and Absent, by Rank 
and Grade." 

(2) A similar comparison will be made of the totals of columns "F", 
"H" and "K", on the first page, and "Total Officers" and "Total Enlisted 
Men" under "Strength, present and Absent, by Rank and Grade", to verify 
returns of attached and casuals of another branch. 

6. (1) To the total of column "A" under "Officers", on the first page of 
the last monthly strength return, add the "Total Gains" of officers on line 
"A" under "Alterations since Last Monthly Return" on the new return. 
From the sum thus obtained subtract the corresponding "Total Losses" of 
officers on line "A" under "Alterations Since Last Monthly Return" on 
the new return. The difference should be the total of column "A" under 
"Officers" on the first page of the new return. A similar verification should 
be made for column "A" under "Enlisted Men," and for columns "C" and 
"E" under "Officers and "Enlisted Men", except that totals in columns "C" 
and "E" must be combined as those two classes are combined on the same 
line under "Alterations Since Last Monthly Return." 

(2) Returns of attached and casuals of another branch (Form No. 42) 
will be verified in the same manner. 

18. In preparing special returns required by section VI, General Orders, 
No. 20, War Department, 1920, the space provided on Form No. 30 and 
Form No. 41 for recording "Strength, Present and Absent, by Rank and 
Grade," "Strength, Present and Absent. Last Monthly Return," and "Altera- 
tions Since Last Monthly Return" will not be filled in. Special return 
of attached and casuals of another branch (Form No. 42), is not required 
in case of change of station either temporary or permanent, but the totals 
(F. H. & K.) from other branches will be entered on back of the special 
company or regimental strength return (Form No. 30 or No. 41). Special 
strength returns of headquarters (Form No. 28) is required only in case 
the headquarters changes station independently of its unit. Special strength 
returns will be accompanied by special record of events on Form No. 43, 
containing the information required by paragraph 7, section VI, General 
Orders No. 20, War Department, 1920. 



[Bui. 13.] 8 

19. Special strength reports on Form No. 41, A. G. O., will be used in 
lieu of consolidated morning reports when the supply of forms for consoli- 
dated morning reports (Form 335 and Form No. 336, A. G. O.) is exhausted. 
Form No. 30 and Form No. 41 will be used for all other special strength 
reports of organizations and detachments. When used for special strength 
reports the space for recording "Strength, Present and Absent, Last 
Monthly Return" and "Alterations Since Last Monthly Return" will not 
be filled in. The space for "Strength, Present and Absent, by Rank and 
Grade" will not be filled in unless specifically so directed by the commander 
calling for the special strength report. 

20. A commanding officer who is required to render strength returns 
may delegate to his adjutant, if there be one, authority to authenticate 
the same. When authority is thus delegated, the words "For the Com- 
manding Officer" will be prefixed to the adjutant's signature. The word 
''commanding" will be stricken out and the word "Adjutant" substituted 
therefor. 

21. When it is discovered that certain personnel has been carried erro- 
neously on previous returns, correct returns for the period involved will l>e 
prepared and forwarded with a letter of explanation. Such personnel erro- 
neously carried on previous returns will not be "dropped" from the current 
return in order to make the figures balance. 

22. All orders and regulations in conflict with these instructions are sus- 
pended pending revision of such orders and regulations. 

23. Through misunderstanding on the part of the printer some forms 
have been printed on paper too heavy to make copies by carbon process. 
Owing to the scarcity of funds for printing it is necessary to utilize these 
forms, but when the forms are reprinted paper suitable for making copies 
by carbon process will be used.

No. 14. [ 

I. The following indorsement of the Militia Bureau is pub- 
lished herewith for the information and guidance of all con- 
cerned, said indorsement being based upon an inquiry as to 
interpretation of paragraph 5 of instructions on back of pay-roll,

4th Ind. 

War Dept., Militia Bureau, April 23, 1921.— To the 
Officer in Charge of National Guard Affairs, Head- 
quarters, 3rd Corps Area. 

I. Returned. As the services of the enlisted men 
referred to will be continuous, it is not necessary that 
their names be crossed out and placed at the end of the 
payroll, it only being necessary that a notation be made 
to the effect that the men have re-enlisted, giving the 
dates. 

J. Mcl. CARTER,

II. The following indorsement of Headquarters, Third Corps 
Area, Fort Howard, Md., based upon an inquiry as to interpre- 
tation of paragraph 3 of instructions on back of payroll, Form 
367, is published herewith for the information and guidance of 
all concerned : 

1st Ind.

— To : Major Frank Thorp, F. A., Instructor Pennsyl- 
vania National Guard ; thru the Senior Instructor, 
Pennsylvania National Guard, Harrisburg, Pa. 

I. Since January 1st. 1921, it is not required that 
under remarks on form No. 367 there should be entered 
the statement "Attended ( ) drills,

III. The following communication of the War Department is 
published for the information and guidance of all concerned. 

WAR DEPARTMENT 
THE ADJUTANT GENERAL'S OFFICE 
WASHINGTON 

April 13, 192 1 

From: The Adjutant General of the Army. 

To: The Adjutant General of Pennsylvania, Harrisburg, Pa. 

Subject: Distribution of Victory Medals. 

1. There are many young men in your state who have not 
received the American Victory Medal to which they are entitled 
as veterans of the World War. 

2. This distinguishing mark of military service has a design 
the basis of which is uniform for the soldiers of the Allies 
throughout the world. This basis is the rainbow and winged 
Victory of Samothrace — the two greatest symbols of peace and 
victory. The medal is pendant from the rainbow ribbon. In 
each country national artists have designed figures that follow 
these general specifications : " On the obverse the Victory winged, 
standing, full length and full face. On the reverse the inscription 
' The Great War for Civilization ' and a representation of the 
various Allied and associated nations." The noted American 
sculptor, James Earl Fraser, designed the medal for the United 
States troops. 

3. The pride which ex-service men and their families take in 
the possessions of these medals will be increased as time goes on 
and the War Department is anxious that everyone entitled to this 
award should have it. Any efforts you may make toward assisting 
in the accomplishment of this purpose will be a distinct service. 



3 



[Bui. 14.] 



4. Will you help to correct the erroneous impression that only 
those who were privileged to go overseas are entitled to the 
Victory Medal and give publicity to the fact that any man who 
was properly inducted into the Army and was honorably dis- 
charged is entitled to the Medal. Application blanks may be 
secured from the Commanding Officer of any Camp, Post, Station 
or Hospital, or from the Victory Medal Officer of any Reserve 
Officer's Training Corps Units or from National Guard In- 
spector-Instructors wherever located. 

5. If you can render this patriotic service it will be greatly 
appreciated by this office.

should not include the drills attended by him, provided at 
the end of the roll, his complete record is carried forward, 
showing the number of drills attended and the dates on 
which he was present at drills, otherwise there would be 
a duplication in the number of drills attended in the total 
on the last page of pay roll. 

(b) In cases of reenlistment it is necessary that a 
notation be made on the pay roll showing the dates of re- 
enlistment and qualification, as well as the original date 
of qualification, because if an enlistment terminated on 
the 4th day of a month and the member did not reenlist 
until the 20th day of a month, he would net be entitled 
to armory drill pay between those dates.

Subject: Citizens' Military Training Camps. 

1. By order of the Secretary of War the following is quoted 
for your information : 

"The War Department plans to held during July, 
August and September, 1921, a series of Citizens Military 
Training Camps. These Camps will be held under the di- 
rection of the various Corps Area Commanders. If the 
item for these Camps included in the Army Appropriation 
Bill which failed to receive the President s signature is 
included in the new Bill passed I by the present S-ssicn 
of the 67th Congress, there will be funds ava lable to 
train approximately 1200 men in each Corps Area. It .is 
requested that you inform the troops under your juris- 
dict on relative to these Citizens' Military Tra mng 
Camps, in this connection, there being inclosed herewith 
a short statement relative to the camps. Undoubtedly, 
Command ng Officers of National Guard Units will re- 
ce™ considerable number of inquiries relative to these 
Camps The War Department and Corps Area Head- 
quarters will keep them advised so far as practicable with 
reference to these Camps, and it is requested that they 
lifer sud questions as they cannot handle themselves 
to the Commanding- General of the proper Corps A ven, 
r r to such local recruiting committee as may be function- 
ing in their vicinity. 

"It is Iv-lieved that many graduates of these training 
camps will desire further military tra ning and tipon 
their return to their homes, a large number. undoubtedly 
will be likely recruits for the nearest National Guard 
Unit." 

o Tt is b-lieved that with your eooperatV n these camps can

imparted by the Citizens' Military Training Camps, be so di- 
rected as to find its ultimate use in either the National Guard 
or in the Regular Army. The class of students attending these 
institutions will as a rule, select service in the Nat'onal Guard 
rather than in the Regular Army. The training imparted is 
designed to so fit the students for military service in case of 
the application of the selective draft in the future. It is sug- 
gested that Adjutants General request the names of all the young 
men in their community who do attend the Citizens' Military 
Training Camps and see that these men are fully informed as to 
the duties of citizens toward the National Guard and as to the 
benefits derived from service therein.

Subject : Pay for field training, summer period 1921. 

Due to the numerous strengths mentioned in law, in Tables of 
Organization for the Regular Army, and the unsettled state of the

sidered m National Guard Regulations, the following regulations 
wUl_ govern pay for the field training period for the calender year 

1. Those organizations of the National Guard (similar to the 
organizations in the Regular Army) which have a prescribed en- 
lstecl strength greater than sixty-five must secure by July 1 at 
least six uy-five active enlisted men. Other organizations of the 
Rational Guard must be maintained at the strength prescribed 
for similar units in the Regular Army. Variations in active en- 
listed strength of ten per cent either way will be pennitted 
•nt A ? si ° ned reservists may be enlisted in organizations of the 
^National Guard which attain an active maintenance strength cf 
sixty-five. Ihe maximum number of such enlisted assigned re- 
servists will be limited to the corresponding number of active 
members of each organization. 

3 ' t, 4J 1 ^listed , men attending field training for not less than 
one Jialt or the full training period will receive pay, subsistence 
and transportation. The pay of officers will depend upon the nu- 
merical strength of the enlisted men in their respective organiza- 
tions who attend field training as follows : 

(a) In these organizations of the National Guard which are 
not required to maintain a strength of at least sixty-five active 
members, seventy per cent of the actual required enlisted strength 
must attend field training for the officers to receive pay. 

(b) For ihose organizations cf the National Guard which must 
maintain a strength of at least sixty-five active members, the 
officers will receive pay if seventy per cent of sixty-five active 
members attend field training, i. e., forty-six active enlisted mem- 
bers. 

These are the minimum requirements which will entitle officers 
to field training pay. National Guard organizations which can not

4. It is enjoined upon all officers to secure the maximum at- 
tendance at field training. The maximum strength for organiza- 
tions whose enlisted strength is less than sixty-five will be a ten 
per cent variation above the peace strength of similar units in the 
Regular Army. The maximum strength for those organizations 
required to maintain sixty-five active enlisted members will be 
the prescribed peace strength for similar units in th» Regular 
Army. In cases where assigned reservists are brought to camp 
with the organizations, the maximum number of such assigned 
reservists in each organization is limited to the corresponding 
number of active members in that organization.

Brigadier General, U. S. Army. 

(NOTE: The attention of every company commander is directed 
to paragraph 1 of Circular Letter No. 31. All organizations

7. The following statement from the Militia Bureau showing 
the progress of the National Guard of the United States on May 1, 
1921 is published for the information of all concerned : 



NATIONAL GUARD STRENGTH, MAY 1, 1921 

During the month of April the National Guard increased by 7,223 officers and enlisted men , 
making an aggregate strength for the entire Guard on May 1st of 92,421. 

The Inspection Reports of 128 new units were received during the month of which 127 were 
favorably acted upon for Federal recognition and the States have been credited with these units, 
although it was impossible with the limited clerical force of the Bureau to actually complete the 
recognition letters of all these units. 

This is the largest increase both in strength and units for any month since the reorganization 
of the Guard.

•Includes the states of Nevada, New Hampshire, South Dakota and West Virginia. 

The above figures show for the first time the number of units recognized and authorized as 
well as the strength of the same. The Militia Bureau wishes to emphasize that the War Dept. 
desires units of efficient strength rather than a large number of units of small strength.

9. The following Tables are Regular Army peace strength 
tables and are published with a view of showing the separate 
ratings for enlisted personnel of these organizations. Wherever 
these organizations show an enlisted strength of less than 50 these 
tables are the authorized tables of the National Guard. Where 
tables exceed the authorized recognized strength of 50 they are 
published for the purpose above indicated, i. e., to show ratings 
and grades of the enlisted personnel. Where these tables show 
enlisted personnel than 65 the tables will apply as authorized tables 
for National Guard organizations as far as maintenance is con- 
cerned. Such organizations, however, can still be recognized at a 
strength of 50 ;

Bulletin ) 
No. 16. ) 

At each annual tour of field duty the question of interpretation 
of the meaning of "Personal Baggage" has arisen and has 
caused considerable difference of opinion between officers of the 
Guard and the railroad companies. In order that there may be 
a clear understanding as to what is meant by " Personal Bag- 
gage," 150 lbs. of which is allowed for each soldier holding a 
ticket or being transported on a party ticket, the following state- 
ment is published for all concerned, and its provisions will be 
strictly adhered to : 

Camp impedimenta, such as field ranges and stoves, barrels, 
tables. G. I. cans, stakes, lumber, provisions in barrels or boxes, 
ice chests, bundles of shovels, brooms, picks or tent poles, wheel- 
barrows and large boxes without handles, which evidently contain 
general camp equipment, cannot be transported as " Personal 
Baggage," but must be accounted for and enumerated clearly on 
bill of lading, either State or Federal, as the case may be. 

Wearing apparel, necessary bedding, blankets and such parts 
of a soldier's equipment as may be packed in trunks, foot-lockers 
or wooden boxes with rope or metal handles, the boxes to be of 
such size and weight as to be easily handled, will be considered 
"Personal Baggage " and will be carried free to the extent of 
150 lbs. per passenger. It is definitely understood, however, that 
all such personal baggage must be so packed as to be readily 
handled by railroad employes. Large, heavy, cumbersome pack- 
ages and boxes cannot be classed as "Personal Baggage." 

Where freight or baggage cars are assigned for organizations 
and are placed at stations or railroad sidingsi for convenient 
loading, both personal baggage and freight may be placed in the 
same car. The station agent, however, must be consulted before 
this is done, and a bill of lading accomplished enumerating every 
article going into the car or cars as freight. 



[Bui. 16.] 



2 



Where organizations have cots, these can be transported in 
reasonably light boxes with rope or metal handles, and in this 
way can become a part of the personal baggage. They cannot, 
however, be classed as personal baggage if tied in bundles, 
shipped loose or in large cumbersome boxes.

ment of markers and caretakers is published for the information 
of all concerned : 

4th Ind. 

War Dept. Militia Bureau. May 14, 1921. — The Adjutant 
General of Pennsylvania. 

1. The regulations provide that no marker shall be employed 
in excess of 25c per hour or §2.00 per day. The markers car- 
ried on the accompanying roll are shown at $2.50 per day and 
the excess cannot be authorized from Federal funds. 

2. The regulations also provide that caretakers may be em- 
ployed aftei- authority therefor has been obtained from the Sec- 
retary of War, at a rate not to exceed $60.00 per month, ex- 
cept on ranges having thirty or more targets, when the rate will 
not exceed $100.00 per month. The failure not to obtain prior 
authority in this instance will be waived, but it will be seen that 
the $60.00 per month only provides for a rate of $2.00 per day, 
and the excess therefore cannot be met from Federal funds. 

3. In order that the proper subappropriation chargeable with 
the authorized expense of the markers, the voucher should state 
if the markers were civilian employees or enlisted men of the 
organization firing detailed as markers. 

4. It is noted that on the back of the voucher the 2 officers 
and 12 enlisted men are shown as having participated in target 
practice on September 5th, whereas the face of the voucher shows 
the markers as employed on September 4th. 

5. The voucher should be supported by a statement showing 
the necessity for the nature of the work performed by the labor 
on the twelve days in September. Also a copy of the indorse- 
ment should be attached to the voucher when credit is claimed 
for the payment. 

J. Mcl. CARTER,

By order of the Secretary of War: 

PEYTON C. MARCH, 
Major General, Chief of Staff. 

Official : 

P. C. HARRIS, 

The Adjutant General. 

7. Herewith is published Circular Letters Nos. 36, 37, 38, 39, 
40, 41, and 42, of the Militia Bureau, for the information and 
guidance of all concerned : 

WAR DEPARTMENT. 

MILITIA BUREAU, 

Washington. 

June 4, 1921. 

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 36. 



From: The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To : The Adjutants General and Property and Disbursing 

Officers in all States, Territories, and District of 
Columbia ; all Instructors ; and the Officers in 
Charge of National Guard Affairs, all Corps Areas. 

Subject : Allowance for quarters, heat and light, for sergeant-in- 
structors. 

1. Attention is invited to paragraph 449, National Guard Reg- 
ulations. 1919, in which it is stated that "the total for quarters, 
heat and light, should not exceed $30.00 per month, except poss- 



LBul. 18J 



8 



ibly in localties where exti-eme cold climate exists." In a number 
of instances this allowance has been exceeded during the past sev- 
eral years, owing to the economic conditions prevailing during 
the World War. In view of the fact that the pending Appropria- 
tion Act for the Army will reduce the National Guard appropria- 
tions considerably below the estimates of requirements submitted 
by the War Department, and especially as to the item from which 
the allowance for quarters for sergeant-instructors is paid, it is im- 
perative that the rate of allowance for this purpose be reduced to 
conform to the appropriation for the total number of sergeant- 
instructors detailed with the National Guard. 

2. Under the above circumstances, the allowance must be re- 
duced to conform to the National Guard Regulation above quot- 
ed, i. e., not to exceed $30.00 per month. Action should be taken 
at once to advise the sergeant-instructors who, at present, are au- 
thorized quarters, heat and light, at a rate in excess of $30.00 per 
month, that beginning July 1, 1921, the allowance will not ex- 
ceed $30.00 per month and that steps should be taken by them to 
acquire accommodations in accordance with this allowance, other- 
wise any expense of this kind in excess of such amount must be 
met from funds other than Federal. In the event that this neces- 
sary action should work apparent hardship on sergeant-instructors 
who are married and have families residing in such quarters, ac- 
tion should be taken to relieve them from National Guard duty and 
substitute unmarried men whose domestic arrangements will con- 
form to the requirements in this matter.

To: The Adjutants General of all States, Territories, and 

the District of Columbia. 

Subject: Sale of arms and equipment to federally- recognized 
officers of the National Guard and of the National 
Guard Reserve. 

1. In connection with the provisions of paragraph 1174, Army 
Regulations, as changed, so far as they relate to officers of the 
National Guard and the National Guard Reserve, the following, 
quoted from General Orders No. 21, War Department, dated May 
21, 1921, is published for the information and guidance of the Na- 
tional Guard. 

"(a) Federally-recognized officers of the National Guard and 
of the National Guard Reserve not on active federal duty may 
purchase, in such quantities as would be required by them when 
called into active Federal Service, necessary uniforms, accouter- 
ments and equipment at the same prices at which such articles 
are furnished to officers of the Regular Army. All such officers 
will submit written requests for purchases through the adjutant 
general of their State to the officer in charge of depot sale stores 
or other supply points. All requests for purchase must be indors- 
ed by the adjutant general of the State, recommending approval 
or disapproval. The adjutant general will also state in his in- 
dorsement, for the purpose of identification, that the officer mak- 
ing the request is a federally-i-ecognized officer of the National 
Guard or of the National Guard Reserve. The officer making the 
request for purchase will certify that the articles are for his own 
personal use and that application to purchase is made under the 
provisions of paragraph 1174 Army Regulations, as changed. The 
request will list the articles desired, and will state what number 
of articles requested, if any, have been previously purchased from 
the United States Government. If such articles are to be ship- 
ped, requests will be accompanied by a money order or draft, the 
amount of which will cover the cost of the articles and of the nec- 
essary packing, but will not include the cost of transportation, as 
all such articles will be shipped by parcel post, or by express or 
freight collect. Money orders or drafts will be made payable ac- 
cording to instructions received from the adjutant general con- 
cerned or the office from which purchases are to be made. 

"(b) With the exception of clothing and ammunition, sales of 
more than one article of equipment to an officer will not be made 
unless he can establish by suitable evidence the loss or destruc- 
tion, through no fault of his own, of such articles previously pur- 
chased by him. 

"(c) Adjutants general of States and supply Bureaus of the 
United States Government will maintain records of all articles 
having serial numbers sold to officers of the National Guard or of 
the National Guard Reserve. Supply bureaus of the Government 
will furnish the adjutants general concerned with the necessary 
information for the maintenance of such records. 



11 



[Bui. 18] 



"(d) There will be issued on memorandum receipt to officers 
of the National Guard and the National Guard Reserve when call- 
ed to active Federal duty everything needed by them except cloth- 
ing and except such articles of equipment as they may have pre- 
viously purchased from the War Department and which are still 
serviceable. 

"(e) Information concerning cost of articles, etc., may be ob- 
tained from adjutants general of States, from department or corps 
area headquarters, from military stations, or from officers in 
charge of depot sales stores or other points of supply.

waii and Porto Rico, and the District of Columbia- 
Militia, Officers in Charge of National Guard Affairs, 
and Instructors. 

Subject : Field Artillery Ammunition. 

1. In all cases where proper and safe storage is not provided 
for the powders and ammunition issued Field Artillery organiza- 
tions as initial allowance, steps should be taken at once to have 
such powder and ammunition of all character sent to a State Ar- 
senal or other designated place within the State for proper stor- 
age in a State magazine, which insures protection to the ammuni- 
tion, and so constructed or located that in case of accident, ad- 
joining buildings would not be damaged by the force of an explo- 
sion. 

2. In the future all requisitions for Field Artillery ammuni- 
tion for initial allowance to be shipped to organizations must be 
accompanied by a certificate from the Field Artillery Instructor, 
or other qualified officer of the Regular Army, giving a description 
of the magazine or storage place and stating that it affords ample 
protection for the ammunition, and that in case of accident, sur- 
rounding buildings would not be endangered from explosion. No 
shipments will be made of Field Artillery ammunition in the fu- 
ture unless this certificate is furnished. 

By direction of the Secretary of War : 

J. Mcl. CARTER, 

Brigadier General, V. 8. Army. 

(NOTE — Commanding officers of Artillery organizations, now hav- 
ing ammunition for Artillery on hand, will immediately advise 
The Adjutant-General in order that transportation orders may be 
issued for the transfer of this ammunition to the State Arsenal.

ally recognized thereunder, which National Guard 
commission differs in branch or grade, or both, from 
his reserve commission, will apply for reappoint- 
ment in the Officers' Reserve Corps in a grade and 
branch the same as the commission held by him in 
the National Guard. In all cases in which the law 
permits, the reserve commission will be granted by 
transfer, by promotion, or both, or by discharge and 
reappointment. In all cases in which identical ap» 
pointments cannot be accomplished under the law, 
the officer will be discharged from his commission 
in the Officers' Reserve Corps without prejudice to 
his reappointment therein. 

"(g) All requests or recommendations for change 
of status in the Officers' Reserve Corps of persons 
holding National Guard commissions will be forward- 
ed through the Adjutant General of the State and 
the Chief of the Militia Bureau. These officers will 
make recommendation thereon and will state clearly 
the National Guard status of the officer, both as of 
June 4, 1920, and as of date of report." 

In view of the following : 

"The Chief of the Militia Bureau will make 
prompt report to The Adjutant General of the Army 
of any reserve officer who ceases to be an officer of 
the National Guard. The Adjutant General will re- 
fer the case to the Corps Area Commander for con- 
sideration in accordance with sub-paragraphs (d) 
and (e) above." 

each officer of the National Guard who is now a member of the 
Officers' Reserve Corps will be required to furnish to the Militia 
Bureau information as to his grade, branch and date of appoint- 
ment in the Officers' Reserve Corps 

2. Hereafter in preparing Form No. 108 for the recognition 
of National Guard officers it will be recorded whether the applicant 
is a member of the Officers' Reserve Corps at the time of making 
his application giving the grade, branch, and date of appointment. 

By direction of the Secretary of War : 

J. Mcl. CARTER, 
Brigadier General, U. S. Army. 

(NOTE — Officers of the Pennsylvania National Guard will ob- 
serve the requirements of this circular letter and follow its in- 
structions. Care will be exercised in preparing Form 108 to state 
explicitly the grade, branch and date of appointment in Officers' 
Reserve Corps in addition to the information required for the 
National Guard commission on this form. — Adj. Gen. Pa.)

COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA, 
THE ADJUTANT-GENERAL'S OFFICE, 

Harrisburg, Pa.. July 15, 1921. 

Bulletin ) 
No. 19. J 

1. The following communication from the Chief, Militia Bureau, 
is published for the information of all concerned : 

WAR DEPARTMENT, 
MILITIA BUREAU, 
Washington, 

June 16, 1921. 

From : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To : The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of Hawaii 
and Porto Rico, and the District of Columbia Militia. 

Subject : Attendance of Medical Department Officers of the National 
Guard at Service Schools. 

1. The publication of the data given below with reference to 
courses available for Medical Department officers of the National 
Guard was approved by The Adjutant General of the Army on 
May 13, 1921. The information contained herein should be fur- 
nished all Medical Department officers. 

With reference to accomodations to be set aside for members of 
the National Guard, it is to be borne in mind that assignments as 
student officers at the various service schools are contingent upon 
specific appropriations by Congress. Funds for attendance of 
Medical Department officers of the National Guard at Courses 1, 
2 and 4, Medical Field Service School, and Course 1, Army Medical 
School, will be available if the appropriations now pending are 
approved and allotments made in accordance with the provisions 
of these appropriations. Information on this point will be sent you 
later. 

2. Courses available for Medical Department officers of the 
National Guard. 

MEDICAL FIELD SERVICE SCHOOL, 

Carlisle, Pennsylvania. 

Course 1. 

Short or special basic course, beginning the 2d or 3d Monday in 
January and continuing for a period of six (6) full weeks. Actual 
dates of instruction, 1922 ; January 9 - February 20. Reservation 
for officers of the National Guard, 30. 

Course 2. 

Short or special basic course beginning the 2d or 3d Monday in

in August and continuing to the latter part of December. Actual 
dates of instruction, 1921 ; August 1 - December 21. Reservations 
for officers of the National Guard, 10. 



[Bui. 10.] 



Course 5. 

Special advanced course for such Medical Department officers of 
the National Guard as may elect studies in higher sanitary tactics, 
such as those including the duties of Army, Corps or Division 
surgeons. These courses will be from one month to three months' 
duration and normally will be held during the months of May, June, 
and July, but arrangements may be made to enroll at any other 
time during the year if accomodations and facilities will permit. 
Due notice of such opportunity to enroll will be sent. Reserva- 
tions not fixed, being subject to 'special consideration of each in- 
dividual applicant. 

ARMY MEDICAL SCHOOL, 

Washington, D. C. 

Course 1. 

Standard basic course in technical subjects beginning the 1st or 
2d Monday in January and continuing until the latter part of June. 
Actual dates of instruction, ?922; January 9 - June 24. Reserva- 
tions for officers of the Nati ^aal Guard, 10. 

3. With reference to the actual dates of instruction given above, 
it is contemplated that students entering the prescribed courses 
should always be directed to so time their departure as to arrive 
at least three (3) days prior to the beginning of the course which 
they have been authorized to take. This is in order that they may 
accomplish all preliminary details before beginning actual instruc- 
tion. Likewise the period for examination, graduation exercises, 
etc., after the completion of the course is also left elastic. 

4. It will be noted above that the term "Medical Department 
Officers" is used. The Medical Field Service School is a tactical 
school, and as the Medical Department consists of officers of the 
Medical, Dental, Veterinary and Medical Administrative Corps, 
courses are arranged for the combined training of all these officers. 
The Army Medical School is a technical school and the courses 
will provide primarily for the training of Medical officers ; but until 
other facilities are provided for them, veterinary and dental officers 
will be considered eligible for special laboratory and other courses 
to be conducted in this school. 

5. The work at the Medical Field Service School pertains 
essentially to the development of the military part of the officer's 
education, special emphasis being given to tactical (field) training. 
The work at the Army Medical School is primarily designed for 
officers who have shown by past service that they are qualified to 
profit by it, the instruction there pertaining essentially to the de- 
velopment of the professional part of an officer's education, special 
emphasis being given to technical (medical) training. 

6. The long or standard basic course, at the Medical Field 
Service School (Course 4), has as its object the rapid adapta- 
tion, of the National Guard Medical Officer to the life, work and 
customs of the Army. The instruction is progressive and extends 
from the School of the Soldier to the organization, functions and 
administration of Medical Department units attached to the field 
forces or in home territory, in peace or war, such as regimental 
detachments, medical regiments, evacuation hospitals, surgical hos- 
pitals, hospital trains, general hospitals, station hospitals, etc. 
The course is also designed to prepare the inexperienced officer for 
the discharge of his military duties upon entering the National 
Guard service, irrespective of whether his assignment be with 
mobile or fixed formations. The course constitutes his induction 
into military life and is a prerequisite to admission to the profes- 
sional (technical) school of his special Corps.

[Bui. 19. J 



The short or special basic courses, Medical Field Service School 
(Courses 1 and 2), are designed to meet the needs of those officers 
of the National Guard who cannot spare the time to take the 
long or standard basic course (Course 4). This short course will 
be arranged to deal in a 6-wecks period with as much as possible 
of the same instruction and material as is embraced in the long 
basic course (4). It will be intensive and essentially practical. 

7. The standard basic course in technical subjects at the Army 
Medical School (Course 1), is primarily conducted for selected 
officers of the National Guard. It has as its object what might 
be characterized as a post-graduate study of the following subjects 
in their application to military conditions : Bacteriology. Parasit- 
ology and Preventative Medicine, Sanitary Chemistry, Nutritional 
Chemistry, Clinical and Operative Surgery, Clinical Medicine, 
Ophthalmology, and Reentgenology. (All clinical work is given 
at Walter Reed General Hospital, Takoma Park, D. C.) 

8. Special advance courses at the Medical Field Service School 
(Course 5) , will be conducted for officers whose war or field ex- 
perience indicates their fitness for advanced instruction. These 
courses will deal mainly with the organization, function and ad- 
ministration of all field units of the Medical Department. They 
are designed chiefly to develop commanding officers of special units 
and such staff officers as army, corps, and division surgeons and 
instruction falls under the general heading of what may be termed 
sanitary tactics. They are not strictly prescribed courses but are 
to be in the nature of post-graduate and research work wiih 
medical units, equipment, training, or in other subjects which 
special officers may be authorized or directed by the Surgeon 
General to undertake. 

9. The attention of all medical officers applying for any of the 
courses should be called to the following : 

Under Par. 4(38, National Guard Regulations, 1919, the pay 
and allowances while attending either school shall not exceed those 
of a captain. 

Officers who undertake any of the courses at either the 
Medical Field Service School or the Army Medical School will 
be expected to remain at the school throughout the entire time of 
the course. 

No officer should be given an assignment as a student 
officer unless he thoroughly understands the conditions under which 
he accepts it. 

Officers are furnished quarters in kind at the Medical Field 
Service School but no quarters are available for officers attending 
the Army Medical School. No provision for the housing of families 
is provided at either school. Rooms and apartments are not easily 
obtained in Washington at the present time and the cost of them 
when they can be found is very high. 

10. When a medical, dental or veterinary corps officer has been 
selected by this Bureau you are requested to issue the necessary 
orders, which should state that: the detail of the officers is by 
direction of the Secretary of War ; the travel directed is necessary 
in the military service; the accounts of the officer will be settled 
by the Property and Disbursing officer of his State ; and upon the 
completion of the course, or when relieved by the commandant, 
the officer will return to his; proper station. 

Copies of all orders should be sent to the Commandant, 
Army Medical School, Washington, D. C, or Commandant, Army 
Field Service School, Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and to the Chief. 
Militia Bureau, Washington, D. C.

11. It is desired that especial care be taken in the selection of 
student officers, taking into consideration their natural military 
aptitude and with a view to the maximum utilization of their 
services as instructors after they have completed the courses. 

It must be understood that the taking of the course of in- 
struction at either of the schools is entirely voluntary on the part 
of the officer concerned and no officer should be recommended to 
attend the schools who does not express his desire to do so in 
writing. 

12. In view of the limited number of officers to be assigned to 
each school, and the probability that more will be recommended than 
can be accepted, the necessary selection will be made in this Bureau, 
based on records and qualifications and on geographical distribu- 
tion. 

13. All applicants for permission to take any of the courses 
outlined in this schedule should be forwarded at least six weeks 
prior to the opening of the course. Each application should specif- 
ically indicate the course desired and its inclusive dates as given 
in tiie schedule, and include the age of the applicant, a brief state- 
ment of his previous military experience and any training courses 
he has previously followed. 

Recommendations of officers for attendance at schools should 
be received in this Bureau on or before the dates given below op- 
posite each course.

WAR DEPARTMENT, 
MILITIA BUREAU, 
Washington. 

July 6, 1921. 

From : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To : The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of Ha- 
waii and Porto Rico, and the District of Columbia 
Militia, and Commanding Officers of Air Service 
Units, National Guard. 
Subject : Physical examination of Air Service Officers 

The following regulations are published for the information find 
guidance of all concerned. Particular attention is called to under- 
lined (italic) portion of paragraph 2: 

1. All pilots and observers of the National Guard will be subject 
to the rules and regulations regarding physical examination for 
flying that are required for officers of the Regular Army. 

2. Upon recognition of a National Guard flying unit, the med- 
ical officer attached thereto will report by letter to the Corps 
Area or Department Commander, and request that a flight surgeon 
or the special Air Service Physical Examiner on duty at the head- 
quarters of his Corps Area or his Department, be directed to visit 
the unit and make the prescribed physical examination for all 
pilots and observers. Prior to this examination no flying will be 



[Bui. 19.]

engaged in by the unit and no pilot or observer will fly until the 
examination has been taken and officially approved by the War 
Department. To facilitate this matter all papers will be sent by 
the Commanding Officer of the unit to the Adjutant General of the 
State, who will forward them direct to the Chief of the Militia 
Bureau. They will be returned with appropriate action through 
the same channels. 

3. At regular intervals, and not less than once in every six 
months, the Air Service Examiner will be directed by the Corps 
Area or Department Commander to visit all units in his Corps 
Area for the purpose of examining pilots or observers. 

4. The medical officer attached to each National Guard flying 
unit is charged with a grave responsbility in the matter of the 
physical condition of its pilots and observers. Wherever possible 
these officers will be given short courses of instruction at the Reg- 
ular Army schools for flight surgeons. In cases where these of- 
ficers are qualified as flight surgeons or physical examiners they 
will perform the duties required of similar officers in the Regular 
Army. In other cases they will perform the flight surgeon's duties 
to the best of their ability and will exercise a close supervision 
over the physical condition of all officers on duty with the unit. 
They will make such recommendations regulating the flying of indi- 
viduals as they deem wise. In the absence of a flight surgeon, the 
Commanding Officer of the unit is responsible that no officer flies 
who is unfitted for such flights. 

5. Officers of these units will be put on and removed from 
flying status by the Commanding Officer of the unit. Rules govern- 
ing flying status of these officers will be the same as those for 
officers of the Regular Army. 

6. Medical officers are encouraged to write direct to the Chief 
of the Militia Bureau or to the Chief of the Air Service for such 
technical advice or instructions as they may desire. 

By direction of the Secretary of War : 

GEO. C. RICKARDS, 

Major General. 

(NOTE) — Owing to the requirements of the Air Service, men 
will not be commissioned in this service, nor will recommendations 
for commission be made unless persons recommended can pass the 
examination required by the Regular Army for the Air Service.

channels for necessary permission to operate radio sets issued to 
them for military purposes. Call letter, wave length, definition 
of powers, etc., will then be assigned. It is contemplated that 
these sets shall form part of the Corps net and that continous 
tests shall be made by Corps Commander orders to assure their 
being maintained in working order.

8. The following indorsement pertaining to the use of penalty 
envelopes by officers and units of the National Guard is published 
for the information of all concerned : 

2nd Ind. 

War Department, J. A. G. O., July 1, 1921.— To The Chief, 
Militia Bureau. 

1. In repl" to your request for an opinion of this office as to 
whether there has been "any change in the status of Adjutants 
General of States or Federally recognized officers of the National 
Guard in relation to the use of penalty envelopes" since the 
opinions of this office of June 13, 1917, and February 12, 1919, 
(Ops. J.A.G. 22-020 and 311,151 respectively) you are advised 
that there has been no such change. It seems to this office that 
the application of the laws governing the use of the penalty 
envelopes to the National Guard is about as definitely defined ' in 
these opinions as this office can state it in general terms, and that 
the requirements of law as to what shall be printed on the outside 
of such envelopes is also clearly stated therein. In general, it may 
be stated that since National Guard officers, including the Adju- 



[Bui. IS.] 



8 



tants General of States, are not officers of the United States within 
the meaning of the laws governing the use of penalty envelopes 
until they are called or drafted into the Federal service, they have 
not independent authority to use penalty envelopes in connection 
with National Guard correspondence. The extent of their author- 
ity to use penalty envelopes while not in the Federal service is in 
furnishing information to officers of the Government in pursuance 
of requests therefor. The same is true as respects other persons 
or organizations such as the "Military Training Camps Associa- 
tion." The latter association is not a Government organization and 
has not authority to use penalty envelopes, except when such 
envelopes are furnished by some officer of the Government with 
request to inclose information therein for the use of the Govern- 
ment. 

H. A. WHITE, 

Colonel, Judge Advocate, 
Chief, Administrative Law Division. 



(NOTE — No penalty envelopes will be used in connection with 
the Pennsylvania National Guard unless such envelope is enclosed 
with request for information. — Adj. Gen. Pa.) 



9. Herewith is published Circular Letters Nos. 43, 44, 45 and 
46, of the Militia Bureau, for the information and guidance of all 
concerned :

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 43. 
From : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: The Adjutants General of all States. Territories of 

Hawaii and Porto Rico and the District of Columbia 
Militia. 

Subject : Identification mark on motor vehicles. 

In order to prevent their conftision with those in federal service, 
and in order to insure identification in case of accident, all motor 
vehicles issued to the several States for the use of the National 
Guard will be plainly marked immediately on receipt in such a 
manner as to preclude all possibility of mistake as to where they 
belong. The mark will consist of a circle approximately seven 
inches in diameter, circumscribing the approved abbreviation of 
the State name placed above the letters "N.G", and this identify- 
ing symbol will be so placed on each vehicle as to be plainly 
discernible at a distance of at least thirty feet. 

By direction of the Secretary of War :

initial equipment of National Guard Field Artillery batteries 
equipped with the 75 mm and 155 mm guns : 

(a) Allowances of ammunition for initial equipment of National 
Guard Field Artillery batteries equipped with 75 mm gun :

2. No mention is made in the preceding paragraph of allow- 
ances of sub-caliber ammunition for 155 mm guns or howitzers for 
the reason that so far no sub-caliber tubes have been adopted for 
this caliber. It is thought, however, that the 37 mm sub-caliber 
tubes will be adopted, and it is believed, that the allowance should 
be the same as for the 75 mm batteries. 

3. In connection with the foregoing, attention is invited to 
Circular Letter No. 40 of this office dated June 11, 1921, which 
provides that all future requisitions covering field artillery ammuni- 
tion for initial allowance to be shipped to organizations must be 
accompanied by a certificate from the Field Artillery Instructor 
or other qualified officer of the Regular Army, giving a description 
of the magazine or storage place and stating that it affords ample 
protection for the ammunition and that in case of accident, 
surrounding buildings would not be endangered from explosion. 

By direction of the Secretary of War: 

J. Mcl. CARTER. 
Brigadier General, V. 8. Army. 

(NOTE — All ammunition for Field Artillery, initial equipment, 
will be stored at the State Arsenal. Organizations of the Field 
Artillery will not carry ammunition on hand. If any ammunition 
is now on hand, this office will be immediately advised and request 
made for bills of lading in order that same may be shipped to the 
State Arsenal. — Adj. Gen. Pa.)

tions regarding target practice are quoted for the information and 
guidance of the National Guard. 

TARGET PRACTICE. 

Outdoor target practice is included under the classification 
of encampments and maneuvers in section 92, National Defense 
Act. Outdoor target practice must, therefore, be in the nature of 
camps of instruction under canvas or in cantonments to be credited 
as part of the 15 days in training required by the act, or to entitle 
the members of the National Guard to pay, transportation, and 
subsistence. 



11 



[Bui. 19. J 



All small-arms target practice will be conducted in accord- 
ance with the provisions of "Rifle Marksmanship" and "Pistol 
Marksmanship" and other regulations of the War Department. 
The expenditure of ammunition, issued by the Federal Government, 
for the purposes other than those authorized in "Rifle Marksman- 
ship" and "Pistol Marksmanship" and other regulations of the War 
Department, is prohibited. 

All practice must be conducted under the immediate super- 
vision of a commissioned officer of the National Guard, w-ho shall 
be responsible that the requirements of the regulations are complied 
with. 

Regulations concerning the disposition of empty cartridge 
cases, empty packing boxes, bandoleers, and clips, derived from 
the expenditure of small-arms ammunition issued to the National 
Guard bv the Ordnance Department, are contained in paragraphs 
and (Pars. 907 and 908, National Guard Regulations, 1919.) 

WHO WILL FIRE. 

All enlisted men armed with the rifle will be required to 
fire the courses prescribed in paragraph 102 (as amended) of "Rifle 
Marksmanship." All enlisted men in companies wherein 50 per 
cent of the enlisted personnel is armed with the rifle will be 
required to fire. All officers of less than 15 years commissioned 
and enlisted service, on duty with troops required to fire, will fire 
with their organizations. 

Cooks belonging to organizations armed with the rifle 
will fire. 

All officers, other than those of the Medical Corps, Dental 
Corps, Veterinary Corps, and chaplains, are authorized, but not 
required, to fire any course. Officers may qualify for insignia, but 
not for pay. 

All enlisted men, except bandsmen, of Infantry, Cavalry, 
and Engineer regiments and of the Coast Artillery Corps, not 
included under paragraph 102 (as amended) of "Rifle Marksman- 
ship", are authorized but not required to fire. 

All enlisted men of staff departments and of staff corps 
are authorized but not required to fire. 

Officers and enlisted men authorized but not required to 
fire, and who are not on duty with a company or troop which 
takes target practice, will, if they fire, be attached to organizations 
for practice and will be classified on the report of the organization 
to w T hich so attached. 

Upon the recommendation of a surgeon, a company or higher 
commander may excuse officers and men from practice. 

WHO WILL FIRE COURSE A, COURSE B, COURSE C, 

COURSE D. 

All organizations armed with the rifle as a weapon of of- 
fensive combat will fire Course A, and the enlisted men thereof 
will be entitled to insignia and during field training, to extra pay 
for_ qualification as expert rifleman, sharpshooter, and marksman. 
This class includes Infantry, Cavalry, and the personnel of the 
various staff corps authorized to fire. When a suitable range for 
that course is not available the Militia Bureau may grant permis- 
sion to fire Course B or Course C. A report of target firing shall 
be forwarded to the Chief, Militia Bureau, as soon after the close 
of the practice season as practicable, but not later than March 31, 
of the following year. 

All organizations armed with the rifle primarily as a weapon 
of defense will fire Course B, and the enlisted men thereof will be 
entitled to insignia and, during field training, to extra pay for qual- 
ification as sharpshooter and marksman. This class includes head- 



[Bui. 19.] 



12 



quarters troops, military police, Motor Transport companies, 
balloon and airship companies of the Air Service, and miscell- 
aneous individuals armed with the rifle. 

All organizations who are armed with the rifle, but whost 
main function is the service of weapons other than the rifle, and 
in whose branch of service pay is allowed for qualification with 
their principal weapons, will fire Course B, and the enlisted men 
thereof will be entitled to insignia but not to pay for qualifications 
as sharpshooter and marksman. 

The Coast Artillery Corps will fire Course D. Additional 
pay is not allowed for qualification as expert rifleman, sharpshooter 
and marksman, Course D, but will be allowed to those enlisted 
men, Coast Artillery Corps, who qualify as above in firing Course A. 

Courses A, B, C, and D are given in paragraphs 105 to 
112c inclusive, "Rifle Marksmanship." 

Small arms practice will be recorded on the prescribed 
forms. The annual report of small-arms firing rendered by the 
adjutants general of States would show the consolidated reports of 
regiments and separate organizations of Infantry, Cavalry and 
Engineers in rifle and pistol practice ; pistol practice for Field 
Artillery, and pistol practice and rifle practice Course D for 
Coast Artillery. 

2. The above regulations take the place of paragraphs 522 to 
531 inclusive, National Guard Regulations, 1919. 

3. The following tabulation shows in detail the arganizations 
which will fire and the courses they will follow unless a suitable 
range for Course A is not available, in which case the Militia 
Bureau may grant permission to fire Course B or Course C, as pro- 
vided for in paragraph 103, "Rifle Marksmanship" :

2. With relation to all such property reserved for the use of 
the National Guard but which is not now in use. and the use of 
which is not contemplated in the near future, it is requested that 
the Adjutant General of each State report on the United States

COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA, 

THE ADJUTANT-GENERAL'S OFFICE, 

Harrisburg, Pa., August 1 2, 1921. 

Bulletin \ 
^0^20. S 

1. The following communication of the Militia Bureau is published 
for the information of National Guard Officers: 

WAR DEPARTMENT, 

Militia Bureau. 

Washington, July 11, 1921. 

From: The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of Hawaii 
andPorto Rico, and the District of Columbia Militia. 

Subject: Attendance of National Guard Officers at the Infantry 
School. 

1. The next course of instruction for Infantry Officers of the Na- 
tional Guard to be held at the Infantry School, Camp Benning, Georgia, 
will commence October 31, 1921, and end January 31, 1922. 

2. The special object of this course is to develop instructors for the 
Infantry arm of the service, and State authorities should select officers 
on the basis of their probable aptitude and availability for this partic- 
ular work. As the number of officers who can be detailed will be re- 
stricted by the limited appropriation it will be the policy of the Militia 
Bureau to "end officers who represent organizations which now have 
no graduates of the Infantry School. 

. 3. Applications should show the organization and post office address 

of the candidates and recommendations should indicate the order of 
preference in case it is impossible to detail the full number who apply. 

4. Officers who receive certificates of 'proficiency from the Infantry 
School will be exempt, for a period of five years, from examination in 
the subjects in which they qualify. 

5. So far as pay of the officers remaining on duty with the National 
Guard organizations is concerned, students attending Army Service 
Schools will be considered as present for duty during armory drills and 
instruction. 

6. The attention of candidates is invited to Paragraphs 467-470 in- 
clusive, National Guard Regulations, 1919. Student officers will be 



[Bui. 20.] 



2 



housed in barracks. No accomodations will be available at the post 
for student officers' families, and it is practically impossible to rent 
suitable places of abode in Columbus, Georgia, the nearest city. Of- 
ficers for the next class must be selected from among those who will 
not require quarters for dependents. 

7. Applications should reach the Militia Bureau by September 1, 
1921. 

By order of the Secretary of War: 

GEO. C. RICKARDS, 

Major General. 

(Note — Attention is invited to the fact that applications for the In- 
fantry School at Camp Benning should not be forwarded by organiza- 
tion commanders unless officers fill the requirements of Paragraph 2. 
Adj. Gen. Pa.) 



2. The following communication of the Militia Bureau is published 
for the in f ormation of National Guard Officers: 

WAR DEPARTMENT, 
Militia Bureau, 

July 13, 1921. 

From: The Chief, Militia Bureau, 

To: The Adjutants General of all States', Territories of Hawaii 
and Porto Rico, and the District of Columbia Militia. 

Subject: Attendance of National Guard officers at the Field Artil- 
lery School. 

1. Due to the lack of sufficient appropriations the only course of 
instruction during the fiscal year 1922 for Field Artillery officers of 
the National Guard will be held at the Field Artillery School, Fort 
Sill. Oklahoma, and will commence September 15, 1921, and end 
December 15, 1921, Officers designated for the school will be direct- 
ed to report on September 14, 1921. 

2. The special object of this course is to develop instructors for 
the Field Artillery arm of the service, and State authorities should 
select officers on the basis of their probable aptitude and availabil- 
ity for this particular work. As the number of officers who can be 
detailed will be restricted by the limited appropriation it will be 
the policy of the Militia Bureau to send officers who represent or- 
ganizations which now have no graduates of the Field Artillery 
School. Preference will be given to States which have had no of- 
ficers in attendance at the school. 

3. Applications should show the organization and post office ad- 
dress of the candidates and recommendations should indicate the 
order of preference in case it is impossible to detail the full number 
who apply.

[Bui. 20.] 



4. No officer should be recommended for this detail unless he is 
familiar wirh Field Artillery drill, nomenclature of material, use of 
observing instruments, and has' a fair working knowledge of mathe- 
matics. A statement of each applicant's service and extent of know 
ledge of above subjects should accompany application preferably in- 
dorsed by an Instructor of Field Artiller/. 

5. Officers who receive certificates of prflo'e'uoy from the Ffeld 
Artillery School will be exempt, for a period (;f live years, from in- 
animation in the subjects in which they qualify. 

6. So far as pay of the officers remaining on duty with the Na 
tional Guard organizations is concerned, students attending Army 
Service Schools will be considered as present for duty during armor v 
drills and instructions. 

7. The attention of officers expressing a desire to take this 
course should be invited to paragraphs 467, 468 and 470, National 
Guard Regulations, 1919, for strict compliance therewith. Student 
officers will be housed in barracks; no accomodations will be avail- 
able at the school for student officers' families and officers for this 
detail must be selected from those who will not require quarters for 
dependents. 

S. In case applications have already been mule to the Militia 
Bureau for the detail of officers to attend the course of instruction at 
Fort Sill, another application should be submitted complying with 
paragraphs 3 and 4 of this letter and all applications or reapplica- 
tions must reach this Bureau by August 25, 1921, in order to receive 
consideration. 

9. At the present date no information can be given as to any 
further courses of instruction to be held at the Field Artilledy School 
for enlisted men. 

By direction of the Secretary of War: 

GEO. C. RICHARD'S, 

Major General. 



3. The following communication of the Militia Bureau relative 
to allotments for the fiscal year 1922 is published for the informa- 
tion of all concerned: 

WAR DEPARTMENT, 

Militia Bureau, 

Washington, July 15, 1921. 

From: The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of Hawaii 
and Porto Rico, and the District of Columbia Militia. 

Subjects: Allotments for the Fiscal Year 1922. 

1. By June 30, 1922, the statutory strength of the National Guard 



[Bui. 20.] 



4 



should be virtually 239,000. Due to the appropriations for the devel- 
opment of the National Guard during the fiscal year 1922 it becomes 
necessary to bring to the attention of the Adjutants' General certain 
important facts concerning allotments already tendered and accept- 
ed. The allotments at the present time show that some States have 
already received and accepted 98 per cent of their total allotment 
while other States have received and accepted only 7 per cent. There 
is a wide d ; sparity in the development of the National Guard and it 
is believed essential to correct this if the States will lend their aid. 
It is observed from the figures 1 in the Militia Bureau that a State 
which had accepted 98 per cent of its total allotment has only or- 
ganized 10 per cent during the fiscal year just closed. It must be 
evident that the allotment of 15,668 men to this State for the ensuing 
year when it has produced during the ipast year slightly over 1,500 
men is absolutely unnecessary. The surplus from this State could 
well be assigned to some other State which is clamoring for permis- 
sion to organize units in addition to its accepted allotment. 

2. The Militia Bureau, therefore, requests that the State Adju- 
tants General furnish to this Bureau at the earliest possible mo- 
ment a list of organizations which are now comprised in their final 
allotments which they know can be organized within their State 
limits by the end of June 30, 1922. In order to develop the National 
Guard these lists should be prepared after careful thought and when 
prepared should be followed during the present fiscal year IF AP- 
PROVED BY THE MILITIA BUREAU. 

3. The final allotments made by the War Department are not 
based upon guess but are the result of deep and exhaustive study. 
To change allotments will entail much confusion and readjustment 
of the entire scheme. Any changes in allotment must be made by 
the General Staff and such requests will be submitted only when 
unavoidable. The MILITIA BUREAU IS UNDER ORDERS TO DE- 
VELOP DIVISIONAL TROOPS IN ADVANCE OF CORPS OR ARMY 
TROOPS. 

4. In those states where a shortage of State appropriations 
limits the strength of the National Guard during the present fiscal 
year it is expected that the Adjutants General will willingly sur- 
render the units allotted and accepted which are in excess of the 
strength contemplated by State appropriations. If the Adjutants 
General desire to develop the National Guard they should limit their 
requests strictly to those units in their original allotment which they 
know can be formed. Any other policy will act against the development 
of the National Guard. As soon as these lists are received in the 
Militia Bureau they will be given careful attention and new allot- 
ments will then be furnished for the present fiscal year. 

5. In the meantime, Federal recognition of units will proceed ac- 
cording to allotments previously made, provided the organizations 
comply with statute law. When the strength of the National Guard 
reaches the limit which can be maintained by current fiscal year ap- 
propriations the Militia Bureau must reserve the right to withhold 



5 



[Bui. 20.] 



Federal recognition of such units until funds are provided for their 
maintenance. 

By direction of the Secretary of War: 

GEO. C. RICKARDS, 

Major General. 



4. The following communications of the Militia Bureau relative 
* to the use of telegrams are published for the information and guid- 
ance of all officers: 



WAR DEPARTMENT, 

Militia Bureau, 

Washington, July 15, 1921. 

From: The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: The Adjutants General and Property and Disbursing Officers 
of all States, Territories of Hawaii and the District of 
Columbia Militia. 

Subject: Telegrams. 

1. This Bureau has been given a small allotment for telegrams, 
cablegrams' and radiograms for the fiscal year 1922 which cannot be 
exceeded. 

2. Due to the very limited amount available this Bureau will be 
unable to send any more telegrams to the State authorities on Na- 
tional Guard matters at Government expense, and, as it is appreci- 
ated that there may be instances when you wish information as 
promptly as possible, especially in matters pertaining to inspections 
for Federal recognition or financial cases - , it is requested that you 

* inform this Bureau if it will be agreeable to you to have the Militia 
Bureau send such answers by telegraph, collect, at State expense, 
when it is thought necessary to send a telegram or when you re- 
quest information by wire. 

3. In view of the foregoing this Bureau can no longer pay for 
telegrams sent by State authorities to the Militia Bureau at govern- 
ment expense or collect. Inasmuch as the lack of sufficient funds 
for this purpose demands this action it is requested that those con- 
cerned be advised accordingly. 

By direction of the Secretary of War: 

GEO. C. RICKARDS, 
Major General.

WAR DEPARTMENT, 

Militia Bureau, 

Washington, August 8, 1921. 

From: The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: The Adjutants' General and Property and Disbursing Of- 

ficers of all States, Territories of Hawaii and Porto Rico, 
and the District of Columbia Militia. 

Subject: Telegrams. 

1. Reference letter dated July 15, 1921, from the Militia Bureau, 
on the above subject, the Secretary of War has directed the Chief, 
Militia Bureau, to cause all National Guard officers to be informed 
that only when called into Federal service, are they authorized to 
certify telegrams as ' Official Business". In view of these instruc- 
tions, it is requested that proper action be taken by your office to in- 
form officers of the National Guard of your State that certification 
of telegram? as being official business is unauthorized. 

2. "Collect" telegrams will be accepted by the Militia Bureau 
only when the information contained therein has been specifically 
requested by the Militia Bureau to be sent by wire. 

By direction of the Secretary of War: 

GEO. C. RICKARDS, 

Major General. 



5. The following communication of the War Department relative to 
the admission of candidates from National Guard to West Point in 
1922 is published as general information: 

WAR DEPARTMENT, 
Militia Bureau, 

Washington, July 28, 1921. 
From: The Adjutant General of the Army. 

To: The Adjutant General of the State of Pennsylvania, Harris- 
burg. 

Subject: Admission of candidates from National Guard to West 
Point in 1922. 

1. The regulations for the selection of enlisted men of the Na- 
tional Guard for appointment to the United States Military Academy 
provide that the cadidates shall be apportioned among the States, 
Territories, and the District of Columbia according to their enlisted 
strength, and, in the cases of candidates from the States and Terri- 
tories, will be selected by the respective Governors thereof from 



7 



[Bui. 20.] 



successful competitors in a preliminary examination of a scope and 
nature similar to the regular examination for entrance to the Mil- 
itary Academy, to be instituted and conducted by those officials, and 
to be held between November 1 and November 15, of each year. 

2. The candidates so selected will be authorized by the War De- 
partment to report for the regular entrance examination, which is 
scheduled to be held beginning on March 7, 1922, and the appoint- 
ments available on July 1, 1922, will be awarded to the qualified 
candidates in the order of merit established at that examination, 
which is competitive among all National Guard candidates. The 
Governor of your State is, therefore, requested to select, in accord- 
ance with the foregoing, nine candidates from among the enlisted 
men of the National Guard of your State, and to designate them for 
the entrance examination mentioned, using therefor the inclosed 
blank forms. Please bring the matter to his attention promptly. 

3. There has never been a time since the passage of the law au- 
thorizing appointments from the National Guard when all the vacan- 
cies have been filled, and every candidate from that source who has 
qualified and who desired entrance to the Academy has been admit- 
ted. Although the Department cannot guarantee that this will be the 
case in the future, it is not believed probable that all the vacancies 
will be filled next year, so that any National Guard candidate who 
qualifies may feel practically assured of admission.. The competition, 
therefore, will be well worth the serious consideration Gf any am- 
bitious young man who desires a military career, and applicants 
should be encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to com- 
pete in the preliminary examination. While the number of can- 
didates who actually may be designated for the regular entrance 
examination in March is comparatively small, there is no limitation 
on the number who may compete in the preliminary examination, 
and it is suggested that this matter be widely advertised through- 
out the National Guard organizations of your State so that every en- 
listed man of those organizations who is eligible as to age and 
length of service may be afforded this great opportunity. 

4. To be eligible for appointment from the National Guard, an 
applicant must be an enlisted man of a unit recognized by the Feder- 
al Government. He must, on the date of admission, July 1, 1922, 
have served as an enlisted man not less than one year, must be be- 
tween the ages of nineteen and twenty-two years, and must be not 
less than five feet four inches in height. The age and service re- 
quirements are statutory and cannot be waived or modified, but it 
is not essential that the service be continuous, so that former ser- 
vice in the Guard may be counted in determining an applicant's elig- 
ibility. Similarly, service with a National Guard organization prior 
to its recognition by the Federal Government may be considered, 
the date of enlistment of the soldier governing, and not that of the 
recognition of the unit. The requirements for admission to the Mil- 
itary Academy are fully set forth in the inclosed pamphlet, a supply 
of which is being sent to you under separate cover for distribution 
to those interested.

5. In the past, due to lack of interest in some States, it has been 
fund difficult to secure a full quota of National Guard candidates, 
with the result that, as stated above, all the vacancies have never 
been filled. On the contrary, other States have designated their 
full quo; as of candidates and are constantly clamoring for more. In 
order that the vacancies may all be filled in 1922, it has been decid- 
ed to iequire that designations of candidates shall be made .promptly 
foil wing th; j No.emaer preliminary examination, and in no case later 
than December 15, 1921. When sending in his designations, it is re- 
quested ilu.t the Governor nfo.m the Department as to the number 
of other desirable candidates, if any, which he may be in a position to 
designate. States which tail to designate their full quotas by December 
15, 1921, will be considered as having allowed the opportunity to 
lapse, and their allotments will be given to other States. 

P. C. HARRIS. 

(Note. — Application for preliminary examination for appointment 
to West Point may be made by members of the Pennsylvania Na- 
tional Gua"d to Company Commanders. Organization Commanders 
should net forward applications of men who do not have at least a 
high school education or its equivalent. Applications will not be 
accepted after October 15th. Adj. Gen. Pa.) 



6. The following comunication from Headquarters Third Corps 
Area relative to preparation of armory drill payrolls is published 
for the guidance of all concerned: 

HEADQUARTEDS THIRD CORPS AREA, 
Fort Howard, Maryland, 

August 8, 1921. 

From: The Adjutant. 

To: The Adjutant General of Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia 
and District of Columbia, and all Instructors on duty with 
the National Guard within the Third Corps Area. 

Subject: Armory Drill Payrolls. 

1. The following information contained in a letter from the Militia 
Bureau (MB 249.1-General) dated August 1, 1921, is furnished for your 
information and guidance: 

"This Bureau is advised that under a decision by the Comptroller 
of the Treasury, rendered upon a request of a Finance Officer for 
decision regarding Armory drill pay for the National Guard, instruc- 
tions have been issued for the notation of the age of each man whose 
name appears on the payroll, this requirement necessitating in some 
instances the rewriting of such rolls with resulting embarrasment 
and delayed payments. This matter has been taken up informally 
with the Comptroller General's office by this Bureau with a view to 
obviating the noting of ages in the manner directed. 



9 [Bui. 20.1 

It has been informally agreed to by the Office of the Comptroller 
that such notation will not be required, but that the subject matter 
may be covered by adding to the certificate of the organization com- 
mander on the payroll words to the effect that 'all the officers and 
enlisted men whose names appear on this roll are within the age 
limits fixed by law and regulations.' 

A formal decision by the Comptroller General is being requested 
to cover the above verbal authority, but in the meantime it is desir- 
ed to have payrolls suspended on account of the requirements ex- 
peditiously settled and also to obviate, as far as possible, the re- 
writing of the payrolls involved. Where new payrolls have been 
^prepared and submitted, the notation of ages may be accepted in 
lieu of the amended certificate." 

By command of Brigadier General Bailey: 

E. R. HOUSEHOLDER. 

Acting Adjutant. 

(Note— In preparing payrolls in the future, the requirements rela- 
tive to the notation of ages will be followed. Adj. Gen. Pa.)

CIRCULAR LETTER No. 48. 
From: The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of 

Hawaii and Porto Rico, and the District of 
Columbia Militia. 

Subject: Strength for recognition of National Guard units. 

Under date of July 21, 1921, the following instructions were 
received from the Secretary of War and are communicated to 
you for your guidance: 

" Under authority granted the Secretary of War in 
Section 60, National Defense Act as amended, to make 
general exceptions in time of peace in the organization 
of National Guard units, the time in which companies 
and corresponding units of the National Guard may be 
recognized at a minimum enlisted strength of fifty, as 
indicated in letter A. G. 325.44-Misc. Div. October 13, 
1920, is extended to July 1, 1922. 

" The Chief, Militia Bureau, is authorized in his dis- 
cretion, to withdraw Federal recognition from organiza- 
tions failing to acquire the prescribed minimum active 
strength within a period of six months from date of such 
recognition." 

As a matter of information the letter of October 13, 1920 
(325.44, Misc. Div.), referred to above is quoted: 

"After July 1, 1921, the minimum peace strength of the 
National Guard units shall be the peace strength pre- 
scribed in Tables of Organization for the Regular Army, 
provided, that in those organizations in which the pre- 
scribed peace strength is greater than 65, National Guard 
organizations may be maintained with 65 active enlisted 



11 



[Bui. 20.] 



men in each organization and with assigned National 
Guard Reserves, the number of which when added to the 
active strength will equal or exceed the prescribed min- 
imum strength for similar units of the Regular Army. 
Until July 1, 1921, companies and corresponding units of 
the National Guard may be recognized in the discretion 
of the Chief, Militia Bureau, at a strength of 50 active 
enlisted men. 

" While the above policy establishes a minimum peace 
active strength of 65 for companies and corresponding 
units of the National Guard, every effort should be made 
to encourage the maintenance of such units at the peace 
strength prescribed for the Regular Army in Tables of 
Organization."

2. In order to facilitate the handling of requisitions for 
quartermaster property and insure prompt issue of the stores 
requested thereon, it is desired that in future such requisi- 
tions be prepared from the foregoing lists and each class of 
property entered on a separate sheet of the requisition. To 
enter more than one class of property on a single sheet 
would defeat the purpose for which the foregoing classifica- 
tion of property was made, and it is requested that extreme 
care be taken to have the requisitions properly classified 
before they are forwarded to this office. 

By direction of the Secretary of War: 

GEO. C. RICKARDS, 
Major General. 



(NoTE--Future requisitions will be prepared in accordance with 
the requirements of Paragraph 2 of this circular letter. Adj. 
Gen. Pa.)

WAR DEPARTMENT, 
MIUTIA BUREAU, 
Washington, 

July 26, 1921. 

CIRCULAR LETTER No. 50. 
From: The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of 

* Hawaii and Forto Rico, and the District of 

Columbia Militia. 

Subject: Policy concerning organization of Headquarters, 
National Guard Organizations, Brigades, Di- 
visions, etc. 

1. Under date of July 11th the Militia Bureau received a 
communication setting forth the policy of the War Depart- 
ment upon the above subject. The essential parts of this 
policy arc quoted below for your information: 

" 1. In time of peace, the allotment to a State of the head- 
quarters of National Guard battalions, regiments, brigades, 
divisions, and army corps, the constituent parts of which are 
not wholly comprised within a single State, contemplates 
the organization of such headquarters by the State concerned 
in accordance with approved tables of organization applicable 
thereto. Tables of organization prescribe the number and 
grades of officers comprised in the unit, including the com- 
manding officer thereof. 

" 2. In time of peace, the commanding officer of the head- 
quarters of National Guard organizations not wholly com- 
prised within a single State may be appointed by the Gov- 
ernor of the State to which the headquarters is allotted or an 
officer of the Regular Army may be detailed to command 
such unit upon the request of the Governor of the State 

* concerned. In the latter case officers of the Regular Army 
may be commissioned in the National Guard of the State 
concerned. 

"3. If the commanding officer of the headquarters of 
National Guard organizations not wholly comprised within 
a single State, appointed as such by the Governor of the 
State to which the unit is allotted, is able to establish his 
qualifications for the position under regulations approved by 
the Secretary of War, he should be recognized as such by 
the War Department. 

" 4. _ The present policy of the Militia Bureau of not au- 
thorizing the organization of the headquarters of the Na- 
tional Guard organizations not wholly comprised in a single 
State until the constituent parts thereof have been completed 



IBul. 20.] 



16 



and recognized should be adhered to. 

" 5. The training and development of competent general 
officers in the National Guard is a most important duty of 
the War Department and its responsible agencies. 

" The interests of the United States demand that all cases 
involving the recognition of general officers in the National 
Guard be carefully considered and that the regulations gov- 
erning the recognition of such general officers be strictly 
enforced, so as to insure the recognition of competent officers 
only. Otherwise the States should be given a free hand in 
the appointment of officers of this class. 

" Cases will doubtless arise in which it may be found neces- 
sary and desirable to detail officers of the Regular Army to 
command organizations of the National Guard not wholly 
comprised within a single State, in view of the fact that more 
than one State is interested cr that a qualified National 
Guard officer is not available. In such cases, the initiative 
should rest with the State authorities concerned." 

2. Particular attention is invited to quoted paragraphs 1 
(allotments) and 4, concerning authorization by the Militia 
Bureau of organizations so allotted. 

By direction of the Secretary of War. 

GEO. C. RICKARDS, 
Major General.

CIRCULAR LETTER No. 51. 
From: The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of 

Hawaii and Porto Rico, and the District of 
Columbia Militia.

491. In order that officers and enlisted men may receive 
pay for armory drills of assemblies or other commensurate 



17 



[Bui. 20.] 



service, the following- provisions of law and regulations must 
be complied with: 

/a. Captains and lieutenants belonging to organizations of 
the National Guard shall receive compensation at the rate of 
one-thirtieth of the monthly base pay of their grades as 
prescribed for the Regular Army for each regular drill or 
period of instruction, not exceeding five in any one calendar 
month, providing the following conditions are met for each 
drill: 

(1) At least fifty per centum of the actual commissioned 
strength of the organizations must attend and participate for 
not less than one and one-half hours, exclusive of rests and 
interruptions. 

(2) At least sixty per centum of the actual enlisted 
strength of the organization must attend and participate for 
not less than one and one-half hours, exclusive of rests and 
interruptions. 

(3) The character of the instruction shall be such as may 
\be authorized by Secretary of War. 

b. Captains commanding organizations shall receive 
$240.00 a year in addition to the drill pay set forth above. 

c. Captains and lieutenants not belonging to organizations 
shall receive a compensation per month at the rate of four- 
thirtieths of the monthly base pay of their grades as pre- 
scribed for the Regular Army, when they have satisfactorily 
performed the duties prescribed in these regulations. 

Officers of this class are on a monthly pay basis and will 
be entitled to their maximum pay provided they have at- 
tended not less than four drills, assemblies, or have satis- 
factorily performed the duties prescribed in these regulations 
for any month. If the number attended during a calendar 
month is below four, they shall receive for each drill at- 
tended, or equivalent duty performed, one-fourth of their 
monthly rate. 

d. All officers above the grade of captain, whether be- 
longing to organizations or not, when they have satisfactorily 
performed the duties prescribed in these regulations, shall 
receive compensation at the rate of $500.00 per annum. 

For field officers of the line to secure full pay of $500.00 
per annum, they must attend not less than 48 assemblies for 
drill and instruction or perform duty which is certified to by 
the Regular Army Instructor as equivalent thereto while 
serving an entire calendar year. If the number attended 
during an entire calendar year is below 48, they shall receive 
$10.41-2/3 for each drill attended or equivalent duty per- 
formed. 



[Boil. 20.1 



18 



Officers above the grade of captain not residing at the 
stations of their commands, who follow courses of instruc- 
tion prescribed by Instructors or perform other military 
duties which are considered equivalent in value to the 48 
assemblies required for line officers, will be treated in a 
similar manner as field officers of the line. Certificates of 
Regular Army Instructors will be required in all cases. 

Pay drills, or equivalent duty, in any calendar month are 
limited to a maximum of five.

GEO. C. RICKARDS, 
Major General.

CIRCULAR LETTER No. 52. 
From: The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of

Paragraph 4 (b). The period of the National Match and 
other practice pertaining thereto including the two days' final 
preliminary practice provided by National Match rules (September

19 



[Bui. 20.] 



Paragraph 5. Commutation of subsistence will be allowed to 
the enlisted men duly enlisted as members of State National 
Guard teams, at the rate of not to exceed $1.50 per day for 
(a) the necessary travel period to the range and returning there- 
from to their home stations; (b) for the period of the National 
Match and the preliminary practice, starting September 15, total

ship. 

Paragraph 6. Amounts paid for subsistence during the Na- 
tional Matches and for the period of the preliminary practice

from a special appropriation for National Matches; other 
authorized payments are chargeable to the appropriation for 
"Arming, Equipping and Training the National Guard," sub- 
appropriation " Expenses, Camp of Instruction." 

In order to expedite payment for subsistence, it is sug- 
gested that a member of the team, who has had experience in 
such matters, be designated as acting quartermaster and 
agent for the State property and disbursing officer and that 
he be authorized to pay for the subsistence for the period 
not exceeding nineteen days which is not paid by the camp 
finance officer from a special appropriation for the National 
National Matches. He should also familiarize himself with 
questions pertaining to transportation. 

Paragraph 15. (Last clause). In submitting the estimates, the 
cost of the subsistence for the 8 days' practice pertaining to the 
National Matches (September 15 to 22, inclusive) , should not be 
included. 

GEO. C. RICKARDS, 

Major General.

of the National Guard Field Artillery during the fiscal year 1922. 

4. One of the most pressing needs in the Field Artillery of the Na-

draft will be accomplished by means of a proclamation of the Presi- 
dent. Under the provisions of Section 111, National Defense Act as 
amended June 4, 1920, such draft necessarily discharges the officers 
from their National Guard Commissions. Before they can serve in a 
commissioned capacity after such discharge, it will be necessary 
that they be appointed in the Officers' Reserve Corps, as contemplated 
in the seventh paragraph of Section 127a of said Act. 

"2. In the event of the National Guard being drafted into the fed- 
eral service, the officers, properly qualified, will continue for the time 
being in their National Guard assignments held at the time of draft 
and will serve under reserve commissions, either previously held or 
granted as soon after the time of the draft as practicable. 

"3. In the event of such a draft, before a policy can be made ef- 
fective of having all National Guard officers appointed in time of 
peace in a similar grade and branch of the Officers' Reserve Corps, 
there will be three classes of drafted National Guard Officers : 

(1) Those who hold commissions in the Officers' Reserve Corps; 

(2) Those not holding commissions in the Officers' Reserve Corps 
and who are to serve after the beginning of the emergency in one of 
the grades below that of brigadier general ; 

(3) Those not holding commissions in the Officers' Reserve Corps, 
who are to serve after the beginning of the emergency in one of the 
grades above that of colonel. 

"4. The action necessary for those in Class (1) above will be to 
call them to active duty with the organizations in which they are 
serving under their Reserve Corps commissions. This can be accom- 
plished in the proclamation which drafts the National Guard organi- 
zations. Those in Class (2) above will have to be appointed in the 
Reserve Corps. These appointments can be made by the President 
alone, and may be accomplished either in a proclamation, or by an 
examination as to qualifications for appointment, as circumstances at 
the time demand. Those in class (3) will have to be nominated for 
confirmation by the Senate. If the Senate is in session at the time 
of the draft a condition which may reasonably be assumed, these ap- 
pointments cannot be tendered until the nominations have been made 
and confirmed by the Senate. If the Senate is not in session, re- 



9 



[Bui. 21.] 



cess appointments may be issued. It will be impracticable to do this in 
the proclamation. 

"5. It is desired that the action necessary in an emergency requir- 
ing the use of the National Guard be well understood by all concerned 
and that adequate preparations for such action be made. It is desir- 
able that so far as possible, National Guard officers be appointed in 
time of peace in the Officers' Reserve Corps in the same grade and 
branch as held by them in the National Guard, provided they are 
qualified and eligible therefor. In the event of an emergency requir- 
ing the drafting of the National Guard into federal service, those Na- 
tional 'Guard officers holding similar commissions in the Officers' Re- 
serve Corps will be called to duty thereunder. Those not so commis- 
sioned and found qualified will be appointed in the Officers' Reserve 
Corps in the same grade and branch as their National Guard commis- 
sion. Sucli appointments must be promptly tendered and accepted and 
oaths of office administered. When the National Guard is about to he 
drafted recommendation for the appointment in the Officers' Reserve 
Corps of general officers of the National Guard will be individually 
submitted with all pertinent records and data by the Chief of Mi- 
litia Bureau to the Chief of Staff. 

"6. This office will make the necessary preparations for determin- 
ing qualifications, tendering all appointments, securing the necessary 
oaths of office, reports and data, and issuing commissions.

CIRCULAR LETTER No. 57. 
From : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: The Ajutants General of all States, Territories of Hawaii and 

Porto Rico, and the District of Columbia Militia. 

Subject: Commissions in the Officers' Reserve Corps and National Guard 
» 

The following policy has been received in the Militia Bureau and is 
hereby transmitted for your information and guidance : 

• "xV ? he term National Guard officer, as used herein, refers to act- 
ive x\ational Guard officers federally recognized as such. 

■ \' 2 i c In . order t0 facilitate their employment as individuals, as pro- 
vided for in the National Defense Act, and in order to pass from a 
peace to a war basis without confusion, it is highly desirable that all 
xSlational Guard officers hold commissions in the Officers' Reserve 
Corps in time of peace. 

"3. Reserve commissions for National Guard officers serve two pur- 
poses : r 



[Bui. 21.] 



10 



first, they make them available in peace for certain duties specified in 

the National Defense Act, and 
second, they give them, in time of peace, commissions under which they 

can be placed on active duty and serve in war. 

Both purposes are largely defeated unless the commissions held by any in- 
dividual in the National Guard and the Officers' Reserve Corps are in 
the same grade and branch of the service. In utilizing or instructing 
such officers in time of peace they should be utilized or instructed in the 
grade and branch of the service held by them in the National Guard and 
in which it is contemplated they serve in time of war. Likewise, when 
called to federal service with their organizations, National Guard officers 
should be called and should serve in the grade and branch of the service 
held by them in the National Guard. A commission held in the Officers' 
Reserve Corps in another branch and grade would upset the organization 
of the National Guard unless changed at the time of the draft. If such * 
commissions are changed at the time of the draft there would be an in- 
crease, rather than a decrease, of administrative work and confusion in- 
cident to passing from a peace to a war basis. 

"4. It is not in accordance with the best interests of the service to hold 
any individual as an officer of the reserve components of the Army of 
United States in two capacities, with a view to either the officer or the 
government exercising an option as to the capacity in which to utilize him in 
time of war. The members of the Officers' Reserve Corps are to be given, 
in time of peace, the definite assignment under which it is contemplated 
to use them in time of war. A National Guard officer has a definite and 
distinct place in the Army and, so long as he remains a National Guard 
officer, he can not be considered a potential reserve officer for service other 
than with his National Guard organization when called to active duty. 
The granting of reserve commissions to National Guard officers differing 
from their National Guard commissions would be a violation of this sound 
policy, as well as serving no useful purpose. 

"5. National Guard officers are selected and appointed under specmc 
provisions of the law and are examined for appointment under regulations 
prescribed by the Secretary of War pursuant to Section 75 of the National 
Defense Act. In peace they are available only for assignment to, and 
duty with, the National Guard, or special duties incident to their use 
or instruction as National Guard officers. When an emergency arises they 
are to be called to federal service with the National Guard. Commissions 
in the Officers' Reserve Corps are granted to them merely for the con- 
venience of the government to facilitate their use and training in peace 
and passage to a war basis in emergency. They thus constitute a separate 
and distinct class of the Officers' Reserve Corps whose commissions in the 
latter should, in time of peace, be governed by their recognized status 
as National Guard officers and should not be governed by regulations 
applicable to other reserve officers whose use in the National Guard is v 
not contemplated. Upon termination of their National Guard status the 
special reserve commissions given them by reason thereof should be termi- 
nated and they should, if they desire, continue in or re-enter the Officers' 
Reserve Corps under the same conditions and regulations as are applicable 
to all other reserve officers not holding National Guard Commissions. 

"6. In accordance with the preceding principles the following policies 
and procedure will be observed : 

(a) Federally recognized officers of the National Corps, who apply, 
will be appointed in the Officers' Reserve Corps in the same grade 
and branch as their National Guard commissions, if such appoint- 
ment can be made legally. If appointment in the same grade and 
branch can not be made by reason of limitations contained in the 



[Bui. 21.] 



law, any appointment in the Officers' Reserve Corps will be de- 
ferred until, under the law or by virtue of a state of war, it 
can be made in the same branch and grade. 

(b) Any reserve officer who receives or holds a commission in the 
National Guard, and is federally recognized thereunder, which 
National Guard commission differs in branch or grade, or both, 
from his reserve commission, will apply for reappointment in the 
Officers' Reserve Corps in a grade and branch the same as the 
commission held by him in the National Guard. In all cases in 
which the law permits, the reserve commission will be granted by 
transfer, by promotion, or both, or by discharge and reappoint- 
ment. In all cases in which identical appointments cannot be 
accomplished under the law, the officer will be discharged from his 
commission in the Officers' Reserve Corps without prejudice to his 
reappointment therein. 

(c) For appointment or promotion in the Officers' Reserve Corps for 
the purpose of bringing about identity of commissions in that Corps 
and in the National Guard, federal recognition as a National 
Guard officer will be accepted as evidence of qualification for a re- 
serve appoinlment or promotion made for such purpose. 

(d) Upon termination of his active service as an officer of the National 
Guard each officer thereof will be discharged from his commission in 
the Officers' Reserve Corps unless he shall, upon opportunity pre- 
sented to him, express a desire to continue as an officer of the 
Officers' Reserve Corps. Officers expressing a desire to continue 
in the Officers' Reserve Corps will be considered in the same manner 
as if they were applicants for appointment therein and under such 
regulations as to eligibility and qualifications as apply to all members 
of the Officers' Reserve Corps exclusive of those who also hold 
National Guard commissions. As a result of such consideration 
such officers may be continued under their reserve commissions 
and given suitable assignment other than with the National Guard, 
or may be transferred or discharged and immediately reappointed 
in the grades to which entitled under the regulations of the Officers' 
Reserve Corps. 

(e) Iu the consideration of applications under the preceding sub-paragraph 
examining boards and others concerned will exercise care that no 
reserve officer suffers any disadvantage or receives any advantage 
over other reserve officers by virtue of having held the special re- 
serve commission provided for National Guard officers. Due con- 
sideration will be given to experience and service in the National 
Guard. In the determination of their reserve status as provided 
in the preceding sub-paragraph, and for purpose of promotion there- 
after, all such reserve officers will be credited with all service ren- 
dered by them under a reserve commission, whether serving with 
the National Guard or otherwise. 

(f) The Chief of the Militia Bureau will make prompt report to The 
Adjutant General of the Army of any reserve officer who ceases 
to be an officer of the National Guard. The Adjutant General will 
refer the case to the Corps Area Commander for cousideration in 
accordance with sub-paragraphs (d) and (e) above. 

(g) All requests or recommendations for change of status in the Officers' 
Reserve Corps of persons holding National Guard commissions will 
be forwarded through The Adjutant General of the State and the 
Chief of the Militia Bureau. These officers will make recommenda- 
tion thereon and will state clearly the National Guard status of 
the officer, both as of June 4, 1920, and as of date of report. 



[Bui. 21.] 



12 



(h) Poisons commissioned in the National Guard, but not federally 
recognized, will be considered for appointment or promotion as 
reserve officers without regard to their National Guard status. It 
is suggested, however, that all such persons contemplating federal 
recognition defer requests for appointment or change of status in 
the Officers' Reserve Corps until they have been federally recognized 
as National Guard officers. In this manner much useless adminis- 
trative labor and possible complications in the event of the occur- 
rence of a sudden emergency may be avoided. 

"7. Appointments and changes of status of reserve officers under these 
instructions will be disposed of by this office without reference to chiefs 
of branches of the service for recommendations thereon.

"A. M. BURDETT, 
Adjutant General." 

By direction of the Secretary of War : 

GEO. C. RICKARDS, 

Major General. 

(NOTE — Referring to Circular Letters Nos. 56 and 57, conforming to the 
policy outlined, it is deemed advisable that all officers of the Pennsylvania 
National Guard, Federally recognized, should make application for Reserve 
Commission in the grade they are now holding in the Pennsylvania National 
Guard. — Adj. Gen. Pa.) 



WAR DEPARTMENT 
MILITIA BUREAU 
Washington , 

August 20, 1921. 

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 58. 
From : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of Hawaii and 

Porto Rico, and the District of Columbia Militia. 

Subject : Division into groups and assignment of Reserve Officers. 

The following extract from policy communicated to the Militia 
Bureau is furnished for your information: 

"1. That for administrative control each reserve officer is under 
the jurisdiction of the commander of the department or corps area in 
which his permanent residence is located. For training, assignment, 
or both, most, though not all, reserve officers are placed under jurisdic- 
tion of department and corps area commanders. The term assignment, 
as used with reference to reserve officers, refers to an assignment or 
designation for a class of duty or a specific duty for which it is con- 
templated to use the officer in time of emergency and for which it is 
contemplated he be trained in time of peace. 

"2. That for purposes of assignment, reserve officers are divided 
into three groups: 

(a) General Assignment Group. The officers in this group are 
selected by the War Department and are for assignment to special 



13 



[Bui. 21.] 



duties and activities which, in time of peace or war, are not prop- 
erly included in the jurisdiction of chiefs of branches of the Army 
or any territorial or other high commanders who function in time 
of peace. For convenience of reference this group will be referred 
to by the abbreviation G. A. Group. 

Officers will be placed in and removed from the G. A. Group 
by The Adjutant General upon the application of the chief of the 
activity for which their services are desired reserved, in accordance 
with approved policies. 

The names of officers in the G. A. Group and their con- 
templated assignment will be recorded and filed in the Personnel 
Bureau, Adjutant General's Office. The Chief of this Bureau is 
responsible that the records are kept in such form as will facilitate 
the prompt issuance of orders regarding these officers in case of 
emergency and that the chief of the branch in which the officer 
is commissioned, the commander of the corps area or department 
in which he resides, and the chief of the activity for which he is 
reserved, are notified when the name of an officer is placed in or 
removed from the G. A. Group. 

(b) Branch Assignment Group. The officers of this group are 
selected by the chiefs of the branches of the Army and are for assign- 
ment to special duties or activities, not reserved for the G. A. Group, 
which in time of peace are excluded from the jurisdiction of depart- 
ment and corps area or other high commanders who function in time 
of peace. For convenience of reference this group will be referred 
to by the abbreviation B. A. Group. 

Officers will be placed in and removed from the B. A. Group 
by The Adjutant General upon recommendation by the Chief of the 
branch concerned, in accordance with approved policies. 

The chief of the branch will have the same responsibility 
with regard to officers in the B. A. Group pertaining to his branch 
as those specified for the chief of the Personnel Bureau, with regard 
to the G. A. Group. 

(c) Territorial Assignment Group. The officers of this group in- 
clude all reserve officers not included in the above two groups and 
are for assignment by department or corps area commanders to any 
organizations or activities within his territory not exempted from 
his control by specific orders of the War Department. Assignment 
may be made to any of the components of the Army except that 
assignments to the Regular Army and National Guard will be in 
accordance with instructions issued by the War Department from 
time ,to time. For convenience of reference this group will be re- 
ferred to by the abbreviation T. A. Group. 

Officers will be placed in and removed from the T. A. Group 
by The Adjutant General, in accordance with approved policies. 

The corps area or department commander is responsible for 
the assignment to duty of officers in the T. A. Group pertaining to 
his corps area or department. 

"3. General Officers. For the present all general officers of the Of- 
ficers Reserve Corps, except those who also hold commissions in the 
.National Guard will be placed in the G. A. Group. 

"4. Members of the Regular Army and National Guard. In view of 
their dual status, reserve officers who are also members of the Regular 
Army or National Guard will be disposed of as follows : 



[Bui. 21.] 



14 



(a) Officers, Warrant Officers and Enlisted Men of the National 
Guard. These will be included in the T. A. Group. They will be 
carried as assigned to the National Guard of the proper State, the 
specific assignment therein being a function of the State. 

******** 

"5. General Staff EKgibles. Those selected for duty with the War De- 
partment, General Headquarters, or Army General Staff will be included 
in the G. A. Group. All others will be included in the T. A. Group and 
will in general be assigned to General Staff duties.

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 59. 
From : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of Hawaii and 

Porto Rico, and the District of Columbia Militia. 

Subject : Preparation of data relative to certain officers of the Officers' 
Reserve Corps, National Guard, and Regular Army. 

The following policy has been furnished to the Militia Bureau 
and is transmitted for your information : 

"1. The War Department policy is that no reserve officer who 
also has a National Guard status is to be given an assignment with 
the Organized Reserves, but that all such officers will be carried as 
on duty with the National Guard, their specific assignment therein 
being a function of the State. 

"2. In order to carry out this policy data must be obtained and 
kept up to date as to which officers, warrant officers or enlisted men 
of the National Guard also hold commissions in the Officers' Reserve 
Corps. 

"3. As the organization of units of the Organized Reserves has 
been started, the Chief of the Militia Bureau will furnish immediately 
all of the data called for that he can and furnish the rest as soon as 
practicable. In the meantime the War Department intends to proceed 
with assignments of reserve officers in the Organized Reserves without 
waiting for data on this one point, and possibly some reserve of 



15 



[Bui. 21. J 



ficers who also have a National Guard status will be so assigned due to 
lack of data. Any such assignments will be corrected as soon as 
discovered and all assignments in the Organized Reserves will be kept 
in accord with the War Department policy as soon as the Cniet ot the 
Militia Bureau is in a position to keep the War Department informed 
on this question.

From : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of Hawaii and 

Porto Rico, and the District of Columbia Militia. 

Subject : Appointment of general officers of the Officers' Reserve Corps 
and Federal recognition of general officers of the National 
Guard. 

The following policy on the above subject has been communi- 
cated to the Militia Bureau and is transmitted for your information and 
guidance : 

"1. A board of general officers will be convened for the purpose 

of making recommendations to the Secretary of War relative to appli- 
cants for appointment as general officers of the Officers' Reserve Corps 
and for federal recognition as general officers of the National Guard. 

"2. The board will consist of general officers of the Regular Army, 
the Officers' Reserve Corps and the National Guard. The composi- 
tion of the board will be determined from time to time with clue re- 
gard to economy and the availability of members. 

"3. General officers of the National Guard and Officers' Reserve 
Corps will be detailed as members of the board only with their consent. 
The board will meet at such times as there are a sufficient number 
of cases for its consideration to justify a meeting of the board. 

"4. The applications or recommendations of all eligible persons 
for appointment or promotion to a grade of general officer of the Of- 
ficers' Reserve Corps will be referred to the board for recommendation , 
accompanied by all available records and reports of examination. If 
appointment as a general officer of any section of the Officers' Reserve 
Corps is under consideration, the recommendation of the chief of the 
corresponding branch of the Army will be referred to and considered by 
the board. The board's findings and recommendations will be trans- 
mitted by The Ajutant General of the Army to the Chief of Staff for 
consideration by the Secretary of War. 



[Bui. 21.] 



16 



"5. Prior to the federal recognition of any general officer of the 
National Guard, his complete records, with report of any examina- 
tion held, will be transmitted to the board by the Chief of the Militia 
Bureau, accompanied by his recommendation. The board's findings and 
recommendations will bo transmitted by The Adjutant General of the 
Army to the Chief of Staff for consideration by the Secretary of War. 

"6. Should any general officer of the National Guard be granted 
federal recognition, subject to subsequent examination under Section 
75, National Defense Act, and regulations made thereunder, the re- 
port of examination, with all other records and the recommendation 
of the Chief of the Militia Bureau , will be similarly placed before 
the board for recommendation and will be forwarded for the considera- 
tion of the Secretary of War.

From : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: U. S. Property & Disbursing Officers, through the Adjutants 

General of all States, Territories of Hawaii and Porto Rico, 
and the District of Columbia Militia. 

Subject : Motor equipment. 

1. The Quartermaster General of the Army has informed the Militia 
Bureau that due to a provision in the Army Appropriation Act approved 
Jiinf> 30, 1021, his office is required to dispose of 10,000 motor trucks and 
2,000 automobiles by sale or transfer to the Department of Agriculture. 
He further states that the supply of vehicles available for requirements 
of the Regular Army is insufficient at the present time, and it, therefore, 
becomes necessary to cancel the issue to the National Guard of the follow- 
ing types of vehicles : 

Passenger cars 3/4 ton trucks 

Motorcycles 3/4 ton trailers 

1 1/2 ton trucks 

2. The subject of motor transportation is now under consideration by 
the Quartermaster Corps, and it is not improbable that cancellation of other 
types of vehicles may be necessary. 



17 



[Bui. 21.J 



3. An effort will be made to procure Dodge light repair trucks and 
Anti-aircraft trailers from the Ordnance Department for those States hav- 
ing units for which these vehicles are prescribed. 

4. Correspondence relative to cancellations on previously approved 
requisitions for motor equipment will be transmitted to the various States 
by this Bureau in connection with this letter.

From: The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: The Ajutants General of all States, Territories of Hawaii and 

Porto Rico, and the District of Columbia Militia. 

Subject : Insignia. 

The following decision on the wearing of insignia is published for the in-

Similarly for the supply officer of the brigade ; he will wear the insignia of 
the Quartermaster Corps if he is permanently commissioned therein or of 
the Cavalry with the device of the Quartermaster Corps in the lower angle 
of the cross sabers. The insignia will be worn without the number of the 
brigade. 

"The Executive, Intelligence and Plans and Training Officers will wear

"The saddle cloth insignia for all staff officers of a Cavalry brigade will 
be the Cavalry insignia (cross sabers) in bronze." 

By direction of the Secretary of War : 

GEO. C. RICKARDS, 

Major General. 

(NOTE— Officers on the Staff of the Cavalry Brigade will conform. —Adj. 
Gen. Pa.) 

4. The following table giving strength of the National Guard on July 
31, 1921 is published for general information : 
NATIONAL. GUARD STRENGTH JULY 31, 1921. 

The aggregate strength of the National Guard on July 31, 1921 was 118,751. 106 new 
units were extended recognition during July and 36 units were delayed. 

The authorized strength as shown on this chart was that authorized for the fiscal 
year just ended (1921). The authorized units and strength for the present year (19221 
should be in the hands of the States before the close of August although the Defense 
Act of 1920 contemplated 450 enlisted strength for each member of Congress for this 
fiscal year, the War Department is governed entirely by the appropriations made by 
Congress for the National Guard and the Militia Bureau allotments will necessarily be 
very few new units for this fiscal year due entirely to lack of funds.

geons or special Air Service physical examiners, U. S. A., who forward two 
copies of the examination on Form No. 609, A. G. O., to this Bureau. 

2. Both copies of Form 609, A. G. (_)., received by this Bureau

3. One of the Forms No. 609 thus indorsed is to be retained in this Bu- 
reau and the other forwarded to the Adjutant General of the State concerned 
for his information and file. 

4. The Adjutant General of the State concerned will furnish a certified 
copy of this Form 609, A. G. O., with its indorsement as to eligibility or 
otherwise, to the commanding officer of the unit to which the officer or en- 
listed njan concerned belongs. No person should be permitted to fly until

Surgeon General of the Army. 



(Bui. 22) 2 

6 When a member of the Air Service is transferred from one station or 
organization to another, his commanding officer will furnish the comman d . 
ing officer of the new station or organization with a copy of Foim 609. 

7 If the physical examination record of any officer or enlisted man is 
incomplete, unsatisfactory, or not at hand, or there is doubt of any char- 
acter as to his eligibility for flying, the .commanding officer of the organiza- 
tion to which he belongs will direct the discontinuance of flying until his 
physical qualifications have been properly determined, recorded, and certi- 
fied as required by Militia Bureau Letter No. 201.541, July 6, 1921, and 
by Pars. 2, 3 and 4, above. 

8 Re-examinations should be required from time to time as deemed 
expedient by this Bureau or as may be considered necessary by commanding 
officers to determine the physical fitness of any one to continue on flying 
or training duty. 

9. Commanding officers are directed to relieve from flying training or 
suspend from flying training any individual considered physically unfit, and 
request a physical examination of such officer or enlisted man, authorizing 
the resumption of training only when the officer or enlisted man is found 
physically fit and so reported from this Bureau. 
Bly direction of the Secretary of War: 

Geo. C. Rk'kards,

2 The following communication of the Militia Bureau, dated September 
15th, relative to school for bakers and cooks is published for the informa- 
tion of all concerned : 

WAR DEPARTMENT 
Militia Bureau 
WASHINGTON 

Sept. 15, 1921 

From: The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of Hawaii and 

Porto Rico and the District of Columbia Militia. 

Subject: Detail of enlisted men, National Guard, to Schools for Bakers 
and Cooks. 

1. The War Department has approved plans for the detail of selected 
enlisted men of the National Guard to Schools for Cooks and Bakers, lo- 
cated as follows : 

Camp Dix, New Jersey, 

Fort Riley, Kansas, 

Fort Sam Houston, Texas, 

Presidio of San Francisco, California. 



(Bui. 22) 



2. Men selected should be of excellent character and in good physical 
conditions; the typhoid and para-typhoid inoculations must be completed; 
a certificate of medical officer as to physical fitness must accompany the 
service record of each man. 

3. Men should be well grounded in reading, writing and arithmetic, and 
must have expressed a willingness to accept the detail. They must have at 
least two years to serve after completion of course and they may be dis- 
charged and reenlist for this purpose. (Par. 475, N. G. R. 1019) . 

4. Enlisted men of the National Guard attending these schools will re- 
ceive the pay and allowances of corresponding grades in the Regular Army. 
They will be sent as privates, privates, 1st class, or mess sergeants. Pri- 
vates and privates, 1st class, rated as specialists, 4th class (cooks) draw 
$12.00 per month additional so that the pay of students when company cooks 
are selected would be $42.00 for a private, $47.00 for privates, 1st class; 
a mess sergeant would receive $54.00. Attention is invited to Pars. 471\to 
480, National Guard Regulations, 1919. 

5. Courses are of one, two, three or four months duration, dependent 
upon the aptitude of the student or his previous experience as a cook. When 
considered qualified by the school authorities he will be given a certificate 
of proficiency and returned to his home. Students will report, on the 14th of 
each month, the first course starting in October. 

6. The number of National Guard enlisted men that can be accommodat- 
ed each month is as follows : 



Recommendations must be received in the Militia Bureau by the first of the 
month for the course beginning on the 14th thereof, and should state the 
rank and specialist rating of the men recommended. Only men of the In- 
fantry, Engineers, Medical Department and Signal Corps will be sent, 
since all vacancies allotted to the Cavalry, Field Artillery and Coast Ar- 
tillery will be used for specialist training. 

7. Inasmuch as appropriations for this purpose are limited, it should be 
understood that the number of students and classes is dependent upon avail- 
able funds, and the best qualified men should accordingly be recommended 
first. Students attending these schools will be credited as present with their 
organization so far as pay officers is concerned.

(NOTE — In order that applications to attend school for .cooks and bakers 
at Camp Dix, N. J., can be forwarded to the Militia Bureau before the 
first of the month for the course beginning on the fourteenth of that month, 
all such applications must be in the office of The Adjutant-General by the 
15th of the preceding month. It will be noted that only cooks and bakers 
attached to Infantry, Engineers, Medical Department and Signal Corps 
will be sent. — Adj. Gen. Pa.) 

?>. The following communication of The Adjutant-General, U. S. Army, 
dated September 17, 1921, is published as outlining the policy of the War 
Department as to appointments in the Officers' Reserve Corps: 

WAR DEPARTMENT 
The Adjutant General's Office 
WASHINGTON 

September 17, 1921. 
Subject: Appointment in the Officers' Reserve Corps. 

Through: The Adjutant General, State of Pennsylvania, Harrisburg, Pa. 

1. The receipt is acknowledged of your letter of August 23, 1921, ap- 
plying for an appointment in the Officers' Reserve Corps. 

2. It is the policy of the War Department to appoint federally recognized 
officers of the National Guard in the Officers' Reserve Corps in the same 
grade and branch that they hold in the National Guard, if legally eligible. 

3. The following persons are legally eligible for appointment in the In- 
fantry, Cavalry, Coast Artillery, Field Artillery, or Air Service of the 
Officers' Reserve Corps: (a) Officers of the Army between April 6, 1917 
and June 30, 1919, and former officers of the Regular Army in the highest 
grade previously held in the Army, or any lower grade; (b) Officers of the 
National Guard on June 4, 1920 in a grade net higher than that held in the 
National Guard on June 4, 1920; (c) R. O. T. C. graduates, warrani 
officers and enlisted men of the Regular Army, National Guard and Enlisted 
Reserve Corps and persons who served in the Army sometime between April 
6, 1917 and November 11, 1918 in the grade of Second Lieutenant. 

4. The records of the War Department do not show that you are legally 
eligible for appointment in a grade higher than that of Second Lieutenant 
in the above mentioned sections of the Officers' Reserve Corps. Therefore, 
as you are now federally recognized as a First Lieutenant, Infantry Nation- 
al Guard, your application cannot be favorably considered under the present 
policy as stated in paragraph 2 of this letter. 



5 



(Bal. 22) 



5. It is considered highly desirable, however, that all National Guard 
officers hold commissions in the Officers' Reserve Corps in time of peace, 
and if you should become eligible through the enactment of appropriate legis- 
lation in the future, it is requested that you then renew your application 
if you are still an officer of the National Guard. 

P. C. Harris, 
The Adjutant-General. 

(NOTE — Under the present law officers can only be appointed on the Reserve 
Corps in grades held by them during the World War. In view of this deci- 
sion, National Guard officers who now hold the same grade they held in the 
World War can make application for Reserve commission. Officers now hold- 
ing a higher grade than that held in the World War should not make appli- 
cation until the law is changed. Publication of this change will be made. — 
Adj. Gen. Pa.) 

4. The following indorsement of the Militia Bureau relative to armory 
drill pay is published for the information of all concerned :

From : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To : The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of Hawaii and 

Porto Rico and the District of Columbia Militia. 
Subject: Discharge of Enlisted Men. 

1. In connection with Par. 359, National Guard Regulations 1919, appli- 
cations for discharge on account of business reasons must originate with 
the enlisted man concerned, rather than with the organization commanders. 
The latter may combine two or more applications, forwarding them as in- 
cisures to his request for the discharge of the individuals concerned. 

2. A succinct statement of the pertinent facts will be included in the 
application. An officer will investigate each case, and will make recommen- 
dation as to the action to be taken, based upon the result of his investiga- 
tion. The communication should show affirmatively either that each case 
has or has not been fully investigated by an officer. 

3. Applications for the discharge of enlisted men made in the above 
manner will facilitate decision by higher authority as to the action to be 
taken, and will also furnish information that will be of value to the Militia 
Bureau in other ways. 

By direction of the Secretary of War: 

John W. Heavey, 
Colonel, Infantry, 
Acting Chief of Bureau. 

(NOTE — In forwarding application for discharge on account of business 
reasons, officers forwarding such application will by indorsement upon the 
application state clearly that they have investigated the case and give a 
full account of their findings. — Adj. Gen. Pa.)

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 66. 
From : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To : The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of Hawaii and 

Porto Rico and the District of Columbia Militia. 
Subject : Distinctive Badges or Trimmings on the Uniform. 

The following Circular of the War Department is published for the in- 
formation of all concerned. 

WAR DEPARTMENT, 
CIRCULAR Washington, Sept. 16, 1921. 

No. 244. 

DISTINCTIVE BADGES OR TRIMMINGS ON THE UNIFORM. 

It has been approved, in principle, that regiments of the Regular Army 
and National Guard may wear distinctive badges or trimmings on their uni- 
forms as a means of promoting esprit de corps and keeping alive historical 
traditions. Various organizations which carry colors or standards have 
generally submitted coats cf arms having certain historical significance. As 
fast as approved, these coats of arms will form the basis for regimental 
colors or standards which will eventually replace the present regimental 
colors or standards when these wear out. The use of these coats of arms as 
collar ornaments in lieu of the insignia of corps, departments, or arms of 
service would be an example of distinctive badge to be worn by a regiment. 
An example of another form of distinctive badge or trimming would be the 
green cuff of the mess jacket worn by the 3rd Cavalry some years ago, 
perpetuating the memory of the eld Mounted Rifles, whose trimming was 
green. The officers of the 1st Cavalry several years ago wore a small gilt 
button on the campaign hat which was a reproduction of the dragon button 
authorized for the old 1st Dragoons in 1833. 

In view of the present necessity for economy, any expense to be incurred 
through the adoption of regimental badge or distinctive trimming could not 
be met by the Government. If a badge or trimming were authorized for a 
regiment, it would become a part of its uniform and as such would have to 
be worn by all members of the regiment, both commissioned and enlisted. 



Regimental commanders are authorized to submit, through military 
channels, recommendations for distinctive badges or trimmings for their 
regiments.

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 517. 
From : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To : The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of Hawaii and 

Porto Rico, and the District of Columbia Militia. 
Subject : Methods for securing reenlistments, National Guard. 

At the present time doubtless many men of the National Guard are 
closing their first enlistments since the war and it becomes necessary to 
maintain the strength of the National Guard at its present figure as well 
as to increase its present enlisted strength. The following idea emanates 
from Oaklahoma ana is repeated in order that the principles may hi 
utilized in other communities particularly those of a rural nature and that 
our enterprising company commanders of the National Guard may find 
means to use the same system in our city communities : 

"On August 29. 1921, I reveived checks aggregating in the sum 
of $1227.93, being Armory pay for the period ending December 31, 
1920. I held this pay roll until September 14, 1921, in order to be 
able to deliver the money to the men of the Company along with the 
checks for the period ending June 30, 1921, which I received on 
September 12, 1921, aggregating in the sum of $1821.39. 

"About one half of the enlistments of the Company expired on 
September 3, 1921, the men having served three years under their 
original enlistment. I made a feature of this pay in the way of a 
recruiting campaign, as follows : The County Pair of McCurtain 
County, Oklahoma, was in progress. I delivered the pay at the 
fair grounds. I had a representative of a local Bank present and 
he cashed the checks for the men as they passed by the pay table. 
This was also a means of public advertisement. By reason of the 
extreme bad crop condition in this country the money delivered to 
the men served a useful purpose, most of the men being in actual 
need. By being able to pay the men promptly we were successful 
in reenlisting EVERY man that we desired." 

By direction of the Secretary of War: 

Geo. C. Rickards, 
Major General.

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 69. 
From : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: The Adjutants General of States, Officers in Charge of National 

Guard Affairs of Corps Areas, and Instructors of National 
Guard. 

Subject : Falsified Reports. 

1. In a quarterly report rendered by an Instructor of the National Guard 
appeared the following : 

"d. The most serious irregularity that has come to my atten- 
tion is the laxity on the part of the organization commanders to 
comply with the National Guard Regulations concerning qualifica- 
tion for drill pay. It has been reported to me by the Sergeant-In- 
structor that organization commanders are giving credit for drill 
for men who attend in civilian clothes, and who attend less than the 
prescribed time. I have taken this matter up with the Adjutant 
General but am informed that the practice still continues." 

2. By order of the Corps Area Commander, the above quotation was 
embodied in a letter to the Adjutant General of the State where the In- 
structor referred to was on duty, with the following comment : 

"2. In this connection attention is invited to the 94th Article 
of War which provides for trial by Court Martial, even after the 
offender has been discharged or dismissed from the service ; also 
to Sec. 35, Act of March 4, 1909, Criminal Code (35 Stat. 1095) 
as amended by the Act of October 23, 1918 (40 Stat. 1015—1016), 
which provides for civil trial and fine of not more than ten thou- 
sand dollars, or imprisonment not more than ten years, or both." 

3. While it is believed that cases of this kind are rare, it still is 
deemed advisable to warn all concerned, including Instructors and National 
Guard officers certifying to drill attendance, to keep a vigilant watch as to 
cases of fraud, and false returns, and to report any such instance, imine- 



(Bui. 22) 



14 



diately after making sure of the facts, to the Militia Bureau and to the 
Adjutant General of the State, for such action under the 94th Article of 
War, or the civil criminal law, as the facts shall warrant. 
By direction of the Secretary of War : 

Geo. C. Bickards, 
Major General. 

(NOTE — Attention of company, troop and battery commanders is partiular- 
ly directed to the statement in this circular letter that in some organizations 
men were marked present who attended drill in civilian clothes, and in 
some cases did not participate in the drill. Great care will be exercised 
that no men will be marked present, and so certify, unless he appears for 
the full period of the drill in uniform and takes part in the drill. Men 
excused on account of physical condition, either by the medical officer or by 
an officer of the organization, will not be counted as present for drills. — 
(Adj. Gen. Pa.)

September 30, 1921, is published for general information:

COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA, 

THE ADJUTANT-GENERAL'S OFFICE. 

Harrisburg, Pa., December 5, 1921. 

Bulletin | 
No. 23. j 

L The following memorandum of Headquarters Third Corps 
Aera is published for the information and guidance of all con- 
cerned : 

HEADQUARTERS THIRD CORPS AREA, 
Fort Howard, 
Maryland, 

November 25, 1921. 

MEMORANDUM TO ALL CONCERNED: 

The following information in reference to submission of 
National Guard pay rolls is furnished for the information and 
guidance of all concerned: 

Armory Drill payrolls for Brigade, Regimental, Battalion 
and Squadron Headquarters Staff should be submitted seper- 
atly. 

Armory drills attended to case of each officer can be sub- 
mitted in either of two ways: 

(a) On Form 367b opposite each man's name could be state- 
ed "Attended drills on the following dates" instead of marking 
columns "A" or "P". 

(to) Eliminate Form :367b and under remarks on form 367 
opposite each officer's name state "Attended drills as follows: 
Jan. 2, 9, 24. 29. Feb. 6, 13, 20, 27, etc." 

The information furnished by (a) is believed to be the best 
method to follow. In either ease actual dales of drills attended 
must be shown. 



GEORGE W. STUART, 

Lieut. Col. Infantry, 
In Charge N. O. Affairs. 

(NOTE: Where officers have not attended drills, but pre- 
formed other duties, a sworn statement as to the duties pre- 
formed, giving specific dates where possible, should be attached 
to pay-roll. — Adj. Gen. Pa.) 



2. The following communication from the Militia Bureau 
relative to helpers for the care pf animals and materiel, as well 
as mechanics and; assistants for motorized organization, is 
published for the information and guidance of all concerned: 

WAR DEPARTMENT, 

MILITIA BUREAF, 

Washington, 

October 13, 1921. 

The Chief, militia Bureau. 

The Property and Disbursing Officers of all 
States, Territories, and the District of Columbia. 

Helpers for care of animals and materiel, and 
mechanics and assistants for motorized organi- 
zations. 

1. Owing ito the limited amount of funds appropriated by 
Congress for the National Guard for the fiscal year 1922, it is 
impossible for this Bureau to authorize the employment of care- 
takers during the fiscal year 1922 for the following organiza- 
tions for the purpose of caring for the materiel of horse equip- 
ment issued to the organization namely: 

Engineer Companies, 

Headquarters and Service Companies, Engineers, 

Ambulance Companies, horse drawn, 

Wagon Companies, 

Signal Companies. 

Machine <!un Companies, 

Medical Detachments, 

Combat Train Field Artillery, 

2. Animals and forage for the organizations listed above are 
not available for issue at the present time. This Brueau is 
of the opinion that the enlisted personnel should care for the 
horse equipment and the materiel issued to the organizations 
enumerated. 

3. The above has no bearing on organizations already sup- 
plied with animals and existing regulations will govern in such 
cases. 

4. With reference to motorized organizations, it may be 
stated that due to a recent ruling of the Comptroller General 
no mechanics or assistant mechanics other than those whose 
services began previous to September 29, 1921, can be engaged, 
and, therefore all papers pertaining to employees engaged prior 
to September 29th, such as requests for reservation of funds, 
requests for funds and vouchers covering payments, must show 
the date on which the mechanic or assistant mechanic was 
originally detached for such service.

5. Mechanics or assistant mechanics for motorized artillery 
units or truck units, where services began on or subsequent to 
September 29, 1921, may be paid up to and including the date 
of receipt of this notice, after which their services should he 
dispensed with. Effort is being made to obtain legislation 
authorizing the employment of such mechanics and assistant 
mechanics as the comptroller bias held are not authorized, 
under existing law. 

By order of the Secretary of War: 

Geo. C. Richards, 

Major General.

To: The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of

Subject: Issue of Carrier Pigeons. 

1. The following letter has been received from the Signal 
Corps: 

"1. The Signal Corps will have, in the near future, a 
number of surplus pedigreed pigeons at Camp Alfred Vail, 
Little Silver, New Jersey. The thought comes to my mind that, 
in place of declaring these birds surplus and selling them at 
auction, possibly the National Guards of the various States 
might be interested in securing say twenty pairs for communi- 
cation purposes within the •state areas." 

"2. If the adjutants general in the states are interested 
and can provide the necessary housing, feeding and care for 
these birds, we will be prepared to fill repuisitions for same 
with the understanding that the only expense to be incurred 
by the NATIONAL GUARD will be the cost of transportation 
and the return cost in transporting containers to Camp Alfred 
Vail. These birds are of very fine pedigree and consist of the 
best blood strains to be found in foreign countries. They bring 
an average price at auction of about fifteen dollars per pair.'"

2. States which are 'interested should make immediate 
requisition for number of birds desired. 

3. Federal funds are not available for any expense in 
connection with these carrier pigeons. 

By direction of the Secretary of War: 

Geo. C. Rickards,

1. The following memorandum has been received in the 
Militia Bureau and repeated for the information of the Nation- 
al Guard: 

"MEMORANDUM — CHIEF, MILITIA BUREAU: 

Subject: Recruiting Posters for National Guard 
Organizations. 
1. The Quartermaster Corps has recently taken over 
the operation of the printing plant of the Recruiting 
Publicity Bureau, Governors Island, N. Y. A large 
number of cuts, half-tones., etc., which have been 
used sucessfully in Army recruiting, are on hand 
in this plant, which has every facility for turning 
out recruiting posters for the National Guard as well 
as for the' Army. 

2. It is believed that cooperation between the 
Army and the National Guard would be furthered 
by printing at this plant such recruiting posters as may 
be desired by the Ntaiional Guard of the various 
States, and that such posters would be more artistic 
and more uniform if the plates on hand are used. 

3. It would be feasible to submit to any Adjutant 
General interested, through your office, samples of 
the posters printed at this plant for .the Army 1 , and 
and possibly samples of cuts on hand suitable for 
illustrations according to .the needs, together with 

. estmates of costs, deliveries, etc. It would also 
be feasible to print small booklets and other recruiting 
literature if desired. 

4. Any suggestions you may have to advance on this 
subject will be given prompt attention.

► CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 73. 

From: The Chief, Militia Bureau, 

To: The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of 

Hawaii and Porto Rico, and the District of Colum- 
bia Militia. 

Subject: Coats of Arms and Badges for Organizations. 

1. The following memorandum is published for the infor- 
mation and guidance of all concerned: 

MEMORANDUM ON COAT OF ARMS AND BADGES FOR 
ORGANIZATIONS. 

"(11 Under changes No. 105, Army Regulations of 
June. 3. 19*20. each organization entitled to carry colors 
or standards is required to have a coat, of arms or 
badge to be placed on the organization color or stand- 
in lic-u of the shield and crest 'of the United "States. 
If a formal coat of arms is adopted the shield replaces 
the shield of the United States on the brest of the eagle 
and the crest is used in the place of the United States 
crest. Above the eagle's head, similarly the organ- 
ization motto replaces that of the United States on the 
scroll in the eagle's beak. If a badge is adopted in- 
stead of a coat of arms it is placed above the eagle's 
head and the breast of the eagle is filled in with 
feathers. This applies to all units of the Army, Reg- 
gular and Federalized National Guard, and it is in- 
tended that there shall be no change in this color (or 
standard) when the National Guard Regiment is called 
» or drafted into Federal Service. On the scroll below 

the eagle appears the Federal name of the organiza- 
tion ; for National Guard units this will be supplement- 
ed by the State or other old designation or when 
there is no such other name, then by the name of the 
state or states from which the regiment is formed 
thus. "107th (7th N. Y.) Infantry". . -191 si (Ariz.- N. 
Mex.) Cavrdry", etc. This is the only way in which a 
National Guard color will differ from that of a Reg- 
ular regiment. 

"(2) In addition officers are authorized by Cir- 
cular 161, War Department, April 29. 1920. to wear the 
regimental ooat of arms or badge on white uniforms in 
lieu of the customary regimental insignia. 

"(31 The following organizations are entitled to 
carry colors or standards: 



1. 23] 



10 



(a) All regiments of any branch of the Army. 
Ob) AH independent battalions and squadrons. 

(c) Division Trains; Ammunition Trains. 

(d) Coast Defenses. 

(e) Air Service Groups. 

"(4) The Coat of Arms or badge to be used on -the 
organization color (or standard) must be approved 

by the Secretary of iWar in order .to become official, 
and .the following rules have been dtrawn up in connec- 
tion therewith: 

(a) The design must conform in all respects to the 
rules and best, pa-actices of heraldry. 

(b) It must be historically correct. 

(c) It must be of simple design, i. e.- a single coat 
no quar>terings, and capable of satisfactory repro- 
duction in embroidery and also on a small scale as on 
stationery, for collar insignia, etc. 

(d) No part of the coat of arms of the United 
States is to be used by any unit nor can the complete 
arms or flag of any state or country be so used, al- 
though devices can be taken from them when applicable. 

"(5) In addition the following principles should 
govern in designing arms or badge for an organization: 

(a) The most important thing to show is the 
greatest combat feat of the unit in its history, no mat- 
ter when it occurred. If there is some one outstand- 
ing achievement, that should be made the basis oif ithe 
arms and everything else can well be omitted entirely. 

(b) If there is no such preeminent -deed than con- 
sider its combat history and select the most im- 
portant wars, giving sepeeial prominence to the most 
ancient, and particularly when the baptism of fire 
occurred. 

(c) In the absence of any combat service, resource 
must be had to other service, as on the border, etc., 
or the flag, arms or seal of the state or city may fur- 
nish inspiration, but in this connection it should be 
pointed out that the majority of state seals are pic- 
torial, not heraldic in character, and pictures cannot 
be used on a coat of arms or badge. 

Od) For 'Old organizations ■which at one time had 
a different insignia from that now used, such insignia 
can he advantageously used, thereby showing the long 
record of the regiment. The insignia now worn on 
the uniform should not be used on a coat of arms. 

(e) In general, the color of the sliield should be 
that of the facings of the arms, as azure (blue) for 
infantry, or (yellow) for cavalry, etc., in order to 
at omoe associate the regiment with the arms, but 
this can well be disregarded when some special reason 
exits, e. g\, when they formerly ware facings of a differ- 
ent color. 

(f) The name or number of the organization must 
not appear on the shield or crest, but the regiment can, 
at its option, place the designation on a scroll or en- 
circling band, when the arms are used for unofficial 
purposes. 



11 [Bui. 2iJJ 

(g) Appropriate supporters also can be used un- 
officially and can be included in the blazon if desired, 
but there is no place for them officially, a,s the Amer- 
ican eagle is then used as the supporter. 

(6) The War Department is willing to assist Nat. 
ional Guard regiments in designing their arms or 
bagdes, but the organization must supply ithe neces- 
sary data, given in paragraphs four and five above, 
in order that the "War Department will know what 
deeds it is to symbolize. The greatest possible de- 
tail should be furnished, locations, dates and items of 
human interest in addition to an account of the inci- 
dent or incidents, even the names of officers and men 
distinguishing them, and the regiments supported or 
in cooperation may serve to stimulate the imagination. 

"(1) Similarly when the organization submits a 
design for approval it must be accompanied by a de- 
tailed explanation of the symbolism, and a brief re- 
sume of the regimental history, as the War Depart- 
ment has no records of National Guard organizations 
except for the time while in Federal service. 

"(S) Tt is the desire of the War Department to 
get arms and badges agreeable to the organization 
and of value heraluically, which will symbolize the 
important events in its history and be an inspira- 
tion to its personnel. 

2. Attention is especially invited to paragraphs (6) 
and (7). 

3. Designs sul mittied for approval or requests *fo*r 
designs to be drawn up by the War Department will be for- 
warded thru the respective State. Territory or District 

Adjutant General to this Bureau. 

4. In connection with a study of Heraldry the following 
books can not be furisbed from federal funds but are 
recommended for consultation: 

1. '^Complete Guide to Heraldry", by A. C. Fox-Davies. 

2. "Complete Heraldry" by Bontell and Areling. 

3. "A Handbook of Heraldry", by Oussons. 

4. "■Heraldry in America", by Zieber. 

5. II. S. Infantry Journal March 1921 - "Regimental 
Badges", by Col. Robert E. Wyllee, G. S. 

•j. Colors for National Guard regiments without ap- 
proved coat-of-arms will be furnished on requisition from 
stock now on hand. When a coat-of-arms for the regiment 
has been approved, the colors will be returned and the 
regimental arms added to itihe eagle's breast and the reg- 
imental irootto embroidered in the ribbon scrol in the 
eagle's beak. 

By direction of the Secretarv of War:

Colonel. Infantry, 
Acting Chief, Militia Bureau. 
(NOTE — Particular attention as invited to the article in the 
U. S. infantry Journal, March, 1921 "Regimental Badges" by

October 29, 1921. 

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 74. 

Prom: The Chief, Militia Bureau, 

To: The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of 

Hawaii and Porto Rico, and the District of Col- 
umbia Militia. 

Subject: Appointments of National Guard Officers in the 
Officers' Reserve Corps and vice cersa. 

1. In connection with the announced War Department 
policy on the above subject, as set forth in Circular Letter No. 
57, M. B., current series, there is a very general misunder- 
standing of the legal restrictions that operate to prevent the 
commissioning in the Officer's' Reserve Corps of a number of 
the National Guard Officers who apply for such appointments. 
It is beleived that the following explanation will do much 
to clarify 'the present confusion. 

2. The law with respect to appointments in the Officers' 
Reserve Corps is contained in Section 37, Natioanl Defense 
Act of June, 3, 1916, as amended. This, law is published in 
Bulletin 25, War Department, 1920. The law draws a clear 
line between appointments in the Infantry, Cavalry, Coast 
Artillery, Field Artillery and Air Service, and all other appoint- 
ments in the Officers' Reserve Corps. Appointments in the 
Infantry, Cavalry, Coast Artillery, Field Artillery and Air 
Service, are by law, limited, in time of peace, to the following:. 

(a) Persons who have been officers of the Army at 
any time between April 6, 1917, and June 30. 1919. 

(b) Persons who have been officers of the Regular 
Army at any time. 

(c") Persons who on June 4th, 1920, were federally 
recognized officers of the National Guard, and who 

were then seTving as such, e. g.., active officers. 

(d) Graduates of the Reserve Officers' Training 
Corps as provided in Section 47b, National Defense 
Act of June 3, 1916, as amended. 

(e) Warrant officers and enlisted men of the Reg- 
ular Army, National Guard, and Enlisted Reserve 
Corps. 

(f) Persons who served in the Army at some time 
between April 6, 1917, and November 11, 1918. 

3. Persons included in (a) and (b) above may toe appointed 
in the officers' Reserve Corps in the highest grade which 
which they held in the Army, or in any lower grade. Those 
of class (c) may be appoined in the grade held on June 4. 1920, 
or in any lower grade. Other than these three classes, no 
person shall, in time of peace be orginally appointed in any 
of the five branches mentioned above in a grade above that 



13 



[Bui. 23] 



of second lieutenant. All such appointees must, at the time 
of appointment, toe citizens of the United States and must be 
between the ages of 21 and 60. 

4. For appointments in other sections of the Officers' 
Reserve Corps, other than those five explained above, the 
only legal requirements are that the appointee must be at 
the time of appointment, a citizen of the United States, and 
must be between the ages of 21 and 60. 

5. An examination of the case of any National Guard 
officer who applies for appointment in the Officers' Reserve 
Corps will determine whether or not he is legally eligible 
for the appointment desired. In case he is not so eligible, 
no useful purpose is served by forwarding his aplication. 

6. Members of the Officers' Reserve Corps desirous of being 
commissioned in the .National Guard must be informed that 
the acceptance of a commission in the National Guard may, 
under the policy adopted by the War Department, result in 

(a) The loss of the commission in the Officers' Reserve 
Corps, if that commission differs in grade, or branch, or both, 
from the commission in the National Guard, or in 

(b) The issuance of a commission in the Officers' Reserve 
Corps of the same grade in the same branch ais, or appropriate 
branch to that of the National Guard commission. 

7. Any change in the present law will be promptly com- 
municated to the National Guard.

Subject: Attendances of Medical Department of officers of 
the National Guard at Service Schools. 

1. With reference to letter dated June 16, 1921, from 
the Chief, Militia Bureau, on the above subject, you are in- 
formed that appropriations available for the fiscal year 1922, 
for the purpose of sending officers of the Medical Depart, 
ment. National Guard, to service schools, will permit of 
the detail of but 5 officers of the Medical Department, Nat- 
ional Guard, to attend such schools. It has therefore been de- 
cided not to send any National Guard Medical officers (to 
the Army Medical •School. Washington. D. C, to attend course 
one, beginning the first Monday in January and ending the 
latteir part of June. 

2. The funds available for the current fiscal year, for 
the attendance of National Guard Medical officers at service 
schools, will he used in sending 5 medical officers to the short 
course for National Guard Medical officers, to be given at 
the Medical Field Service School, Carlisle, Pennsylvania, 
beginning March 13, 1922, and ending April 24, 1922. All ap- 
plications to attend the school at Carlisle, Pennsylvania, for 
the above mentioned course, should reach this Bureau by 
January 15, 1922. 

By direction of the Secretary of War: 

John W. Heavey,

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 77. 
From: The Chief, Milita Bureau. 

To: The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of 

Hawaii and Porto Rico, and the District of Col- 
umbia Militia. 

Subject: Returning signed copies of shipping tickets to con- 
signors. 

1. As numerous complaints were being reoelved in 
this office from federal supply officers to the effect that they 
were unable to obtain signed copies of shipping tickets cover- 



15. 



[Bui. 23] 



ing stores shipped to the National Guard, your attention was 
directed to the matter by Circular Letter No. 24 of this office, 
dated April 27, 1920, and again by Circular Letter No. 13, 
dated March 7, 1921. However, complaints of the nature 
referred to above are still being received . 

2. Paragraph 920 of the National Guaa-d Regulations, 
1919, as amended by Circular Letter No. 63 of this office, 
dated September 13, 1921, is very specific in regard to this 
matter, and prompt compliance by PROPERTY AND DIS- 
BURSING OFFICERS and by COMMANDING OFFICERS 
OF NATIONAL GUARD UNITS with tbe provisions thereof 
is essential. Tbe Secretary of War therefore directs that 
immediate steps be taken by you to insure compliance with 
the provisions of the regulation cited by all concerned. 

Geo. C. Rickards, 
Major General. 

(NOTE — All responsible officers when receiving property 
will immediately return signed copies of shipping tickets in 
accordance with above directions Adj. Gen. Pa.) 



WAR DEPARTMENT,

November 18, 1921. 

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 78. 

From: The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To: Tbe Adjutants General of all States, Territories 

of Hawaii and Porto Rico, and the District of 
Columbia Militia. 

Subject: Requistions for forage, bedding, etc. 

1. The Secretary of War directs that the attention 
of all States again be invited to the necessity for submitting 
requistions for forage, bedding, etc., for public animals, 
at least sixty days in advance of requirements. See para- 
graph 987, National Guard Regulations, 1919. 

2. It is realized that unusual .conditions affecting 
deliveries of public animals within the past year have made 
this requirement difficult to fulfil, but in all cases where 
animals have been previously furnished the provisions of this 
paragraph of the Regulations relative to forage and bedding 
should be strictly complied with. 

3. Supplies of this character, being subject to de- 
terioration, cannot be carried in stock and must be obtained 
in open market on bids submitted in accordance with circular 
proposals issued by the Quartermaster Corps. It will thus 
be seen that no shipments can be made on requisitions ire- 
quiring deliveries to be made within ten, twenty, or in some 
cases, even thirty days from the date of the requisition. 

4. Attention is also invited to the [fact that all forage 
requisitions should contain the following: 

(a) Date and serial number. 

(b) Explicit shipping directions. 

(c) Name of organization to which ani- 
mals pertain. 

(d) Number of animals to be foraged. 



16 



(e) Period for which supplies are required. 

(f) Date to which last supplied. 

(g) Quantities of supplies on hand in excess of 
requirements for the previous period. 

(h) Only supplies required in addition to the sur- 
plus on hand should be called for, the two a. 
niounts not to exceed the amounts prescribed 
In Regulations for the period for which sup- 
plies are requested. 

5. The allowances are stated in Paragraph 985, Na- 
tional Guard Regulations, and this office is without authority 
to furnish any supplies to public animals in excess of these 
allowances. Greater care should, therefore, be taken to 
insure accuracy in the preparation of these requisitions and 
they should be forwarded in ample time to permit the Quart- 
ermaster Corps to make purchases in accordance with their 
present method of procurement. 

Geo. C. Rickards, 
Major General.

Chief of the Militia Bureau. State of 

Upon approval of the affidavit by the Chief of the Militia Bu- 
reau he will then transmit it to the Chief of Finance, who will 
turn over to the duly accredited representative of the reorganized 
National Guard Unit, certified to in such affidavit, and amount 
to be determined as follows : 

From the amount turned in by the demobilized unit, either to 
the Chief of Finance or Treasury direct, shall be deducted all 
approved claims against such unit irrespective of whether the 
same have been paid or represent unpaid obligations. The 
balance so obtained shall be multiplied by the number of men 
taken into the Federal Service from the National Guard organi- 
zation, and the result divided by the authorized war strength of 

the federalized organization at time of federalization. . 

Example : 

Company D, 109th Infantry, upon demobilization, turned in to 
the Chief of Finance $500.00 to the credit of Other Funds. Ap- 
proved claims against this organization amounting to $200.00 
have been paid by the Chief of Finance, leaving a balance of 
$300.00. 

Company D, 109th Infantry, at federalization was formed as

From Co. B, 2nd New Jersey Infantry 50 men 

From Co. C, 3rd Massachusetts Infantry 50 men 

From Draft 50 men

thorizing any disposition of funds from ration savings other than

WAR DEPARTMENT, 
MILITIA BUREAU,

December 1, 1921. 

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 81. 
From: The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To : The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of Hawaii 

and Porto Rico, and the District of Columbia Militia. 
Subject : National Guard Regulations. 

1. A revision of the National Guard Regulations, 1919, has 
been in progress) since the passage of the act of June 4, 1920, 
the work so far as the Militia Bureau is concerned being com- 
pleted August 16, 1920, since which date it has been in the 
hands of the Committee of the) War Department General Staff 
charged by Section 5, National Defense Act, with the preparation 
of all policies and regulatons affecting the organization, distribution 
and training of the National Guard. 

2. It was believed that the revised edition would be complet- 
ed and available for distribution before the supply of the 1919 
edition was exhausted, and for that reason a reprint was not 
ordered, but there have been unexpected delays in the settling of 
certain policies that will affect the framing of the regulations 
and they have not yet been returned to this office for publication. 

3. The supply of the 1919 regulations is now exhausted, in- 
cluding all available copies that were obtained from different 
sources in this city, and it is with regret that the Militia Bureau 
has to announce its inability to fill requisitions for the publica- 
tion. Approximately 7.500 copies of the 1919 edition have been 
issued for the use of the National Guard (more than enough to 
issue one copy to each officer of the National Guard), and it is 
probalble that the supply in your State can be so redistributed as 
to provide each new organization with at least one copy, and 
have a copy accessible to all officers of the National Guard. 
Storehouses should bei inspected for copies of these regulations. 
The officers taking correspondence courses should at least all be 
supplied with copies of the National Guard Regulations. Your 
cooperation in this matter is earnestly requested. 



[Bui. 24]

4. As soon as the approved copy is received, the Militia Bu- 
reau will make every effort to expedite the issue of the revised 
regulations to the National Guard.

Officers of Motorized Units, National Guard. 

Subject : Road Record, Battery A, New Hampshire National Guard. 
The following report from the Ordnance Office, 1st Corps Area, 

is published for the information of all concerned : 

"The shipment of one battery of 155 m/m Howitzers, consist- 
ing of, 

4 Howitzers, 155 m/m Model 1918 

4 Carriages, for 155 m/m Howitzers, M 1918

All accessories available, 
to Battery "A", New Hampshire National Guard at Manchester, 
N. H., was made November 10, 1921, from equipment in storage 
at the Army Base, South Boston, Mass. Enlisted personnel of 
Battery "A" took this equipment by convoy over the road to 
Manchester. Two representatives of this office accompanied the 
Battery for the purpose of keeping records of performance, arid 
to assist the drivers who were unfamiliar with tractor driving. 
The records are forwarded as they are believed to represent what 
can be normally expected for a trip of any length over good 
roads. The convoy was conducted thru the heavy traffic of the 
City of Boston and other cities en route, and also a great dis- 



tance over good open roads. 

Total mileage, 70 miles 

Total gasoline consumed, 490 gallons 

Average gasoline consumed per tractor per mile, . . 1.167 gallons

"Both heavy and medium mobiloils were used. The heavy oil 
proved to be most satisfactory. Medium oil was used at first as 
cold weather w-as anticipated. The gasoline consumption was 
reduced when the heavy oil was used, but accurate data to show 
the difference was not obtained. 

"The loads were divided as follows:

Track — 1 reel, 1 cart, 1 caisson. 



"The remaining caisson and the A. A. Machine Gun trailer were 
hauled by two trucks furnished by the National Guard. 

"The fact that the trip was made without a break-down, and 
with all tractors in perfect condition upon arrival is considered 
remarkable since all drivers were new and inexperienced. This 
was due greatly to the efforts of Mr. Milliken of this office. The 
consumption of gasoline and oil is, of course, very high but it is 
believed that it truly represents what the consumption is likely 
to be when this equipment is used in the field by troops. All equip- 
ment was thoroughly gone over; inspected, oiled and greased by 
personnel from this office befoi-e the journey began."

CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 84 
From : The Chief, Militia Bureau. 

To : The Adjutants General of all States, Territories of Hawaii 
and Porto Rico, and the District of Columbia Militia. 

Subject : Pay of Enlisted Men whose grades were abolished by Gen- 
ereal Orders No. 36, War Department, 1920. 

The following copy of War Department Circular No. 259, dated 
September 30, 1921, is furnished for the information and guidance 
of all concerned : 

"1. Under decisions of the Comptroller General of the United 
States of August 8, 1921, and September 24, 1921, enlisted men 
who on June 4, l920, held grades abolished by General Orders 
No. 36, War Department, 1920, such as cook, horseshoer, wagoner, 
mechanic, chauffeur, saddler, musician, first, second and third 
class, and who were regarded as privates, first class, or privates 
with specialists rating July 1, 1920, are only entitled from and 
after September 1, 1921, to the rates of pay authorized by the 
Act of June 4, 1920. 

"2. These decisions overturn prior decisions of the Comptroller 
of the Treasurer, which specifically held that enlisted men whose 
grades were abolished by General Orders, No. 36, War Department, 
1920, were entitled to the old rates of pay under the saving clause 
in section 4b of the National Defense Act as amended by the Act 
of June 4, 1920, and therefore said decisions will not operate to 
disturb payments made by disbursing officers up to and including 
August 31, 1921, if correctly made in accordance with the old rates 
of pay. 

"3. Paragraph 4, Circular No. 183, War Department, 1921, is 
therefore rescinded, effective September 1, 1921. However, the 
decisions above mentioned only have application to the abolished 
grades and do not disturb the basis of payment established by 
prior decisions of the Comptroller of the Treasury for enlisted 
men whose grades were assimilated under the provisions of Gen- 
eral Orders, No. 36, War Department, 1920, to those grades 
created by the Act of June 4, 1920, or obviate the necessity for 
adjusting the pay of enlisted men reduced from sergeant or cor- 
poral to private, first class, or private in accordance with Circular 
No. 183, War Department, 1920, regarding which remedial legis- 
lation has been recommended to Congress. 

"4. Where an enlisted man is entitled to the benefits of the 
saving clause an section 4b of the National Defense Act as amended 
by the Act of June 4, 1920, under an assimilated grade, and holds 
a specialist rating, a disrating or a change in rating as specialist, 
or a change of duties, is not a change in grade within the meaning 
of the saving clause so as to remove him from the benefits of the 
old rate of pay (Comp. Gen. August 8, 1921). 

"5. Commanding Officers will initiate action toward adjusting 
the pay of all enlisted men concerned from September 1, 1921, 
causing proper stoppages to be made on pay rolls or final state- 



9 [Bui. 24] 

merits where overpayments have been made on pay rolls for the 
month of September, 1921, prior to receipt of these instructions.
