DOUGHERTY, OF NATIONAL GUARD Disobeyed Orders in Failing to Prepare for Examina tions in Manner Prescribed. Failure on the part of somo officers ef the Medical Department to take ex aminations In harmony with work of a. Imtlar nature that Is being conducted for officers of other departments of the National Guard of Pennsylvania has caused Major General G. Bow Dougherty to rebuke them officially In a circular Usued from his headquarters. Ihe conditions of the test wore not dif ficult. Not only wero the text books to be consulted recommended, but par ticular paragraphs suggested, and It only remained for the officer to refer to the proper sources to answer the questions. Of th- 6J officers of the Medical De partment to whom the questions were issued IE, or 4T per cent, completed the two courses satisfactorily and some had per fect marks. Eleven, or 20 -per cent., an swered only tho questions of tho first year's course, and 17, or 32 per cent., paid no attention to orders whatover. The course, as outlined by the four of ficers of the Medical Department detailed, was prepared In such a manner that the subjects were selected with considerable care, with the object of Imparting a practical working knowledge of a medleal ffloera, duties. BOMB MADE HIGH AVERAGES. General Dougherty said he realized that many of the ofTloers were busy practition ers, but scone of the surgeons having large practices, and numerous other obli gations found time to reply to both courses and made excellent averages. A first lieutenant and assistant surgeon ap pointed last January had a general aver age of 09.5. , During the coming winter and spring he proposes to continue the correspondence course of Instruction of medical officers by dividing It Into two periods, terming thera "first year" and "second year." The questions for the first-year course will be Issued on or about January 1, and the second-year course March 1, WIS, both to be concluded on May 1. Those whoso gen ' eral averages were 70 or more for both years' courses during tho past season will be exempt from this year's examination. Those who will be required to take this season's course are the officers receiving their commissions in the Medical Depart ment subsequent to the conclusion of the 3914 course, tho officers who paid no at tention to his original order, and those rhose general average was below 70. , GENERAL ORDER TO BE ISSUED. At on early date a general order will fee Issued to the medical officers for this season's course of instruction. General Dougherty does not spare any words In Impressing upon the surgeons the Importance of following up the course prescribed. He says: "Efflclen-y In he medical department of the National Guard of Pennsylvania can come only through knowledga and its Intelligent application by the officer and soldier who Is obedient to orders. The study and research necessary to at tain a satisfactory average in the courses prescribed adds much to the mental, equipment so necessary to the proper per formance of duty. "Tho general government and the State desire that every officer shall approxi mate as near perfect as possible. These courses of Instruction and subsequent examinations furnish tangible evidence (is far as they go. Through these and other records the placing of responsibility and trust becomes more than a matter of opinion or expediency. "The army surgeon must be a good physician and something else besides, for lie must be submissive to military disci pline, adapt himself to military circum stances and conditions, become proficient Jn many things that are pertinent to and part of the service and acquire a knowl edge of customs and usages, sanitation and hygiene, both camp and personal, military medicine and surgery, to say nothing of what seems Insurmountable difficulties to a practitioner books and papers. "The courses prepared for the year are called to the attention of all concerned with the view of having them prepare their minds for the period which must be devoted to preparation for tho examina tions which are to follow."
