To accomplish the reorganization
of tho national guard and the Initial
organization ot the reserve, the army
bill provides tor a general committee
to be composed of regular army gen
eral staff officers and an equal num
ber of reserve or national guard of
ficers. In addition, 62 otber com
mittee, representing each state and
territory will arrange the national
guard organization in each atate and
territory. Some of these commit
tee have not been appointed by the
governors and consequently thl
work ha not yet been put under way.
While no full plan ot organisation
haa been made public, a tentative
plan to be placed before tha commit
tee 'would divide the country Into
nine dfatrlcu wjtu an army corpa In
each. Thl corpa would consist of
one regular, one guard, aad two re
serve divisions, o organised that la
aa emergency the two reetrve divi
sions, which theoretically would be
the oaly one much below war
strength, couldJe filled up with se
lective service men. A full quota of
officer drawn from the officer' re
serve 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
temporary officer have been kept
on duty and It Is the plan to reach
the full officer strength by commis
sioning about 7,000 Ruch officer
and enllstod men In the permanent
army. Officers and men to be so
commissioned will be selected by a
board, known as tho Pershing board,
headed by General Pershing and In
cluding six other officers.
Tho bill broadens tho acopo of the

material for the school and also au
