The National Guard is txpected
to receive its mobilization orders
about Jan. 15. The call for active

that the army is preparing to call
the guard into early service
It is known that a quiet tip has
been passed around to some of the
guard officers to be prepared to re
port for service the middle of Jan
uary and have been advised to ee
that their equipments and uniforms
are in condition for quick sJrvice.
It is further reported that physi
cal 3xamination of recruits to fill
up depleted ranks to full strength
will be held between Jan. 5 and 10.
Jan. 15 is the day on which it is
rumored the mobilization call will
'be issued, and on Jan. 18, the re
ports say, the men will l)e ordered
to camp. Star-Bulletin.
