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
While the regular army will con
tain only 295,000 officers and men
scattered over the country and the in
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.
While no full plan of organization

has been made public, a tentative plan
to be placed before the committees
would divide the country into nine
districts with an army corps in each.
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

Officers and «en to be so commis

known as the Pershing board, headed
by General Pershing and including six
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

for advanced training of the student

corps may be commissioned in the or
