chief of ordnance, is desirous of
maintaining a more or leas constant
flow of ordnance officers between this
country and France. It la proposed
to bring home officers after a period
of service ln France and thus have
the benefit, for the design, production,
and other work in this country of
the experience those officers have ob
tained In the ordinance depots, fixed
and mobile repair shops, service ot
eupply, etc.. in France and to replace
these officers by a corresponding
number from this country. Of course,
more or less difficulties are involved
in carrying this policy into effect,
for it is appreciated that den. Persh
! ing will be loath to give up many
officers now engaged on important
duties. Therefore the extent to
which the scheme will be carried into
effect will depend largely upon con
ditions and demands In France. In
the meantime the division heads jf
the ordnance office at Washington
have been ordered to go to France
? for Inspection and observation of the
ordnance establishment there and
then return to Washington and re
sume their duties, and some of them
already have gone. Those who have
( gone or will go Include Hrig. Gen,
i William S. Peirce, head of the ad
ministration division; Brig. Gen.
John H. Rice, of the engineering and
technical division; Col. Samuel Mc
Roberts. of the procurement division;
Col. Tha?es I* Ames, of the supply
division, and Col. L'H. Rutrgles, of
?the inspection division; and Col John
T. Thompson, recently detailed for
duty as director of arsenals. This
ts a new place just established in
the ordnance office in order that there
may be .supervision and co-ordina
tion of th** industrial activities of
the various government manufactur
ing arsenals. In addition. Col.
Thompson will have general super
vision of the instruction system for
both officers ani enlisted men of the
ordnance department, at home and
abroad. He has as his executive as
sistant MaJ. Lewis P. Johnston, ord

The selection of Col. Thompson for
this important place is a particularly
appropriate one in view of his suc
