"It lor any reason," the order continues, "there shall not be enough reservists or enough voluntary enlistments to organize or keep the reserve battalions at prescribed strength, a sufficients number of the unorganized mili tia shall be draited by the presi dent to maintain such battalions or lesser units at the prescribed strength." The language follows closely that of the national defense act in which the unorganized militia is defined as including every able-bodied male citizen within, the prescribed age limit, or those who have declared their intentions of becoming citizens. The national guard regulations which will be amplified in great detail later, also strikes at the problem ol dependent families of soldiers, which has cost the «Cov ern ment several million dollars already through the border mob ilization. Recruiting officers for the national guard are directed to discourage the enlistment of married men or those with oth ers dependant upon them. Such persons are to be accepted only lor reasons the public inter est, men who wish to become officers being the only class specifically excepted. It is provided in the regula tions that no officer of the guard hereafter shall be recognized as such under the defense act, un less he shall have subscribed to an oath binding him to obey the orders of tiie president and of the governor of his state. Ap pointments will be made on re commendations to the secretary of war from governors or the commanding officers of state or territorial units of the guard and alter proper physical and mental examihation by boards of officers. Promotion will be handled in the same way and any officer who tails in the examination as to his professional ability cannot come up lor re examination within a year. After there years active ser vice, or when the organizations are disbanded, national guard officers may pass into the na tional guard reserve. The reserve is to remain an unorganized body in peace time, except lor temporary pu rpo.ses.
