excessive Indulgence in liquor.

Rude Separation of Twenty-two
Officers from Roll-top Desks at
the War Department
"Pried loose!" was the cry about the
"War Department yesterday when It be
came known that twenty-two officers
had been ordered detached from as many
comfortable berths at the department
and Into field service, after four or more
years of Washington life.
The officers detached range in rank
from brigadier sreneral to wtnt.in Rm
(of them have been serving In Wash
es m lor more tnan six years, and most
of them had begun to feel that they
were secure against disturbance In their
Positions for as many more. Conse
quently, the order of Maj. Gen. Leonard
Wood, of the General State, came as a
great surprise to most of the officers
concerned. It was no surprise to those
attached to the General Staff, as the
law requires they shall not serve on that
corps more than four years consecu
tively. The explanation Is that Gen. Wood
has come to the conclusion that officers
are liable to become stale on their Jobs
after a few rears of "ehslr worir" am
that It will be for the best Interests of
me service that they be sent out to do
some real soldlerlne.
