NEW U. S. ARMY BILL MAKING MANY CHANGES CHICAGO, Sept, 8— A twenty^ ica’s military establishment is being practically revolutionized under the terms of the new army reorganization bill which became effective July 1. Army officers say the work will not be completed for some months because of the broad scope * of the measure . passed at the last session of* Congress to place the land forces on a perma nent peace-basis. While the regular army will con tain only 295,000 officers and men scattered over the country and the in i sular possessions, it will be so ar ranged in conjunction with the Na-' tional Guard and the Reserve that ra pid expansion of the nation’s fightingj forces in time of emergency. I The National Guard will have about 440,000 officers and men, but the strength of the reserve has not yet been worked out and will depend largely on the enlistment of eligible*. The regular army reserve as it form-' eriy'‘existed, composed of former enlisted men furloughed to tile as it formerly existed, composed of, former enlisted men furloughed to the reserve to complete their enlistment period censed to exist as such on July 1. In it* place there is established the enlisted reserve corps and the officers' [ V I reserve corps. The members of i the j former, except veterans of the world war, are required to enlist for three yeas. Veterans of the world war may enlist for only one year. The officers' reserve corps is com- | posed of officers who held temporary i or reserve commissions during the war j emergency and graduates of the stu dent officers’ training school. To accomplish the reorganization of J the national guard and the initial or- j ganzation of the reserve, the aimy bill provides for a general committee to be composed of regular army general staff officers and an equal number of reserve or national guard officers. In, addition, 52 other committees, repre senting each state and territory will arrange the National Guard organiza tion in each state and territory. Some • of these committees have not been ap porinted by the govenors and conse quently this work has not yet been put under way.

Ths corps would consist of one regu lar, one guard and two reserve divis ions, which theoretically would be the only ones much helow war strength, could be filled up with selective ser vice men. A full ■quota of officers drawn from the officers’ reserve corps would be available for these divisions at all times. The new regular army strength provides for approximately 17,000 commissioned officers. To provide this number about 7,000 reserve and tem porary officers have been kept on /* \ SEWARD is tha busiest «TY in ALASKA THE KEY is the bnsiest 4 ' place in SEWARD j duty and it is the plan to reach the full officer strength by commission ing about 7,000 such officers and en lV.ed men in the permanent army. Officers and «en to be so commis sioned will be selected by a board, known as the Pershing board, headed by General Pershing and including six other officers. The bill broadens the scope of the reseivc officers training corps at the various educational institutions over the country, provides instructors and material for the schools and also auth orizes summer camps to last six weeks for advanced training of the student officers. Graduates of the training corps may be commissioned in the or ganized reserve. * The reorganization measure further provides that the head of the militia X AFC % « Kveatty TktNigUy te«ri(«i *Wfc RANDLE ONE* FAflt CLASS GOODfiT *WE UNDERSTAND HOW TO PREPARETHRM" • ^tulhiwi tmd C—rtf y ,.!S OURMOTTO. v PRIVATE DINING ROOM FOR LADMS CHARLES CAMERON, PROP. : Trained Auto, Truek a Tractor Men Earn Big Salaries \ and a short course at this prac* tied school will fit you fior one that* hiihly peid positions u once. or enable you to start in boa* mu for yourself. <1 Tha iiiht ife of die Pfedbcel ^n. die Men who con do thin0L ond dm Commercial World is. ready so pay such men real worth - - i-a wnea isaip* NINE YEA1S OF CONTINUOUS SUCCESS • die beet proof dmreyr plan eftram* ■H-ii ihaehiisfr and thousands of an dvoudhaunhe Country who Haw jra dueled from das School ere.malriwe b( mensy because day aamd with This Big Up-to-Date Engineering School Offers You 12 Prac tical Courses— Cm Engineering in al it'* branches, with a thorough training in the buiidihg • repairing and handling of Automobde* Motor T ruck* Farm Engine* Tractor* Air plane Motor* Marine and Stationary Engine* Steam and Electrical Engineering Machine Shop Practice.
