thing right for several years. At
present no other organization of state
troops has been organized or is even
in process of organization sofar as
can be learned.
The reserve infantry is really tak
ing the place of the national guard,
its duty being to render service in
this country and do local duty when
there is any cause. The infantrv has
been originated to take over these du -
ties since the national guard was
federalized in 1917, when they were
taken to training camps preparatory
to going overseas. It is reported thct
dispatches from headquarters at Tv'ash -
ington state now that as soon as a for
mer national guardsman is mustered
put of the service he is as free from
military duties as any other discharg
ed soldier. In truth, it is claimed
there is no more national guard. When
the national guardsmen were federa
lized two years ago they became the
same as any soldier in the reenlar
army. Now, when they are liberated,!
they come under the same orders.
This fact will necessitate the keep
ing of the reserve infantry through
out the country as a precautionary
measure until provision can be made
ior the maintaining o2 Swi military
force to act as 5. Safeguard to the cit
ies in case of emergency. It is legal
for the different states to organize
national guard divisions again just as
it was before the war, but of what
they will be organized has not been
stated. It is probable that any man
who has seen service in the army will
not wish to join one command as soon
as he is discharged from another. Ii
will be necessary, therefore, to forms
national guard units from bodies of
men who have not seen ser idee in this
war. As there are no such men ex
cept those who were exempt from the
service in the past war and who And
it still necessary to devote all their
time to other matters, it will be next
to impossible to form such units, it Is
Because of those conditions it is be
lieved that it will be necessary to keep
the reserve infantry in existence for
several years. The infantry will pro
bably have to remain in training for
a period of time long enough for
enough men who wish to join zo
reach the necessary age of enlistment.

The year 1918 has shown a steady
