They mean, among other things, that the restriction of filling only one in three vacancies in these corps is abolished. They carry also approval of recommendations of the chief of the Bureau of Yards and Docks that civilian graduates of technical schools of high standard be given opportunity to compete in examinations for ap pointment to fill a proportion of the vacancies in the Civil Engineer Corps. This will be the first time since 1924 that appointments to that corps will be open to qualified civilians. Recently, and pending approval of the General Board’s report, boards were convened at the Navy Depart ment to select from among the many who had filed their applications those to be designated for post-graduate in struction as a preliminary to transfer to the three corps. As a result, the following officers have been desig nated: Finance and supply—Ensigns Le land P. Kimball, jr.; Charles A. Bleck, Edward F. Metzgar, Frederick K. Longshore, Lawrence A. White, Roy G.

The War Department Is planning advanced training for officers of the National Guard who attend the serv ice schools. The' plan is to provide the minimum of 5.353 officer gradu ates from the various service schools at the end of a 15-year period. It w-as pointed out that to attain this objective it is necessary to limit the attendance of National Guard officers : to one special service school and to one course at that school. In general, the company, troop or battery officers’ course was selected in the past year as the logical course to which officers should be sent. The department reported that a sur vey of the courses at the various schools, together with the jobs the of- \ cer graduates were expected to fill on graduation convinced the National Guard Bureau that many of the courses were of insufficient scope to meet the needs of the National Guard. The ! chief of the bureau has initiated re quests for changes in the scopes of most of the courses, and, as a result, it is anticipated that many new sub jects will be included in these courses in the coming year. The infantry, field artillery and cav alry schools will train officers in the following: The tactical and technical duties of the arm in abbreviated form to Include the regiment, with a brief summary of the corresponding brigade functions, paying particular attention to the company, battery or troop.

An effort is being made to extend this course to a twelve-weeks' course and to include the subjects of orientation, communi cation, tactical command and staff functions to include the regiment and methods of training. The course at the Signal Corps : School has been enlarged to make it suitable for division signal officers; I that at Chemical Warfare School to j make it suitable for division chemical warfare officers and that at the Engi neer School to give instruction in the tactical and technical duties of the engineers to include the regiment. In view of the changes at the various schools the National Guard Bureau said that It plans to open practically all of the courses to both company and field officers under 45 years of age who have never attended a special service school. Because of the fiscal limitations the number of field officers that can be sent to any one course cannot exceed 10 per cent of the total numoer sent to the course. Three hundred and seventy-seven ! National Guard officers and 88 en listed men will have attended the schools this school year and approxi mately the same number will be sent .the next school year. To carry out the program for National Guard per sonnel approximately $540,000 will be expended in the fiscal year 1936 to cover the cost of ammunition, pay. transportation, and a like amount is provided in the current Army appro priations bill for the fiscal year 1937.
