continental army idea was expressed
at flist by some of the national guard
ofilcers, when the conferences closed
it wos annonced that a mutual view

"This body (the national guard)"
said Mr. Garrison's statement, "(luring
all the time when there was praetl

corning militia matters, has been
working to do whatever IL.cy could
do to improve the militia situation of
this country. They are absolutely en
titled by virtue of this fiet, to full
and proper recognition in any military
system or policy to be proposed by
the war department.
"In my proposition any and every
organization of the national guard
that is free to do so Insofar as its
state obligations are concerned, may
come over into the national force in

position therein that it now holds.
Any individual who prefers the intenl
