GHANGE OF MARINE
Officers' Do Not Believe
Corps Will" Augment
The Army .
That the Marine Corps will bo
abolished as n separate organization,
mid the officers and men placed lu
tho Army as ten roglmcuts of Infan
try. Is "not believed by local authori
ties. In fact, the rumor Is branded

Attention Is called to the fact that,
were the Marine crps amalgamated
with the Army, tho gicatest inlx-up
of rank In ho history of the service
would bo the result. Every war hns

of the two brnnch-js of tho service Is
very close. Marine officers' names
appear lu the Navy register, and the
officers are consider! more as naval
men than soldiers, though their du
ties, when stationed on shore, lire
largely those ol Infantry.
