Every Saturday inspection is held by company, bat talion and regiment, under arms. Af ter the inspection the men are or dored to their quarters to prepare for a company, battalion or regimental drill. After the noon hour, they are givsn soma kind of examination, which keeps them busy until 5 o'clock p. m. And thus the training program prevents them from rushing to the city Saturday morning and spending the day. The division will enter upon the fourth week of their new training next Monday. The new training calls for more open warfare practice, such as hand-to-hand battles with the enemy, bayonet fighting and how to move un der cover of darkness. In teaching the men the new tactics, they are carried away from the old drill grounds into woods, swamps and fields near the camp.

Indeed, able to advance further must hold from the pen of Joffre is so short that it can be reproduced here in full. It was written on the 6th of September. 1914, on the eve of the Pattle of the Marne and reads.: "At this moment when a battle is about to commence upon the result of which the salvation of our country depends, no one must look behind; all must unite to attack and repel the enemy. Any troop finding itself un he had decided to place his nare be the ground at all cost and must fitrhr until death. No retreat." Sometime ago friends of Marshal Joffre urged him to enter the Acad emy. Their persistence was such that he finally wrote a letter, to the director of the institution stating that upon the advice of his friend! he had decided to place his n"me be fore that body for admission. The rules of the Academy governing ap plications for admittance are to th effect that an official request, nam ing the seat to which the applicant aspires, must be made to the sec retary,. Marshal Joffre's high per sonality did not save him from the formality and thus the official- re quest was made,. The entrance of Marshal Joffre's in the Academy will not create i rrecedent as far as the admittance of military men to the select circle if concerned. Six Marshals of Franco hrve already been recorded as mem !rs. They were Vilars. d'trcs tne Duke of Richelieu, Belle-Isle Brnuvau and Duras. it is an error, however, to think that Marshal Joffre will rere.ve th reen palms of the Immortals with out ever having written anything In there was published in Paris a srventy-flve page volume entitle Tl-e Operation of the Jore Column Pefore and After the Occupation of Trnibou-tou.
