Not Organizaing New Units Now.
The formation of new units in the
National Guard of South Carolina has
been set aside as inadequate at the
present time by Gov. Manning, com
mander in chief (,f the militia forces
of the state, inasmuch as the units
now in the service are not recruited
to anywhere near their maximum war
strength. This decision is in compli.
ance with recent statements from the
war department. The governor, also,
has declined to accept resignations of
officers except under exceptional cir
cumstaneds' or to grant discharges of
enlisted men except as strictly pro.
vided for in the national defense act
of June 3, 1916.
A large number of applications
have been received by Gov. Manning,
asking him for authority to organizo
new units in various branches of the
service. While all these letters and
telegrams have been filed for refer
ence in case of a call for volunteers,
no delnite action will be taken on
them. the governor says, until the
present National Guard forces are suf
ficiently recruited to justify the ex
pense of organizing and recruiting ad
The governor points out that one
of the unite of the state's militia was
not accepted by the government in the
mustering in last year, due to the
fact. that it was not recruited to the
mii nimum strength. b'urthermore. as
is shown by the annual report of
Newton D. Baker, secretary of war.
the removal of state troops to the
Mexican border last summer was coin
pleed because of the exigencies of
the occasion and not because tihe
tits were sufficiently recrutited. While
on the border and since munsteritig
out, the personnel of the umils has
been numerically diminished by resig
nations and discharges, and the gov
ernor coniiders the recruiting of these
organizations to their full strength of
far greater importance than even thei'
tentative organization of new and un
Oov. Manning will accept lie resig
nations of those officers only whose
retirement from the service is requir
ed either by abnormal circumstances
or for the good of the service. A
plea for normal personal sacrifice in
following the colors will not be con
sidered a sufficient reason for accept
ane of a resignation, inasmuch as the
business and personal secriflces of en
listed men, often more actute than
those of the commissioned officers,
are not sufficient justiflcation for a
Discharges for enlisted men, other
than those authorized by the president
or secretary of war, or by a general
court martial, will be given only as
provided in the national defense act
of June 3. 1916. These provisions are
briefly: On account of physical dis
ability; on account of sentence of im
prisonment by a civil court, whether'
suspended or not; on account of a
bona tide permanent. change of resi
dence to another state; and for the
purpose of enlisting in the regular
army or marine crops. Discharges
under this last provision are discre

cease to grant them if it beconies ap
