THE 8EMLWEEKLY TRIBUNE. NORTH PLATTE. NEBRASKA.
War College Heads Prepare for
Handling of Great Vol
RAP TRAINING PROPOSED
Special Attention Given to Selection of
Officers Qualified by Expert
ence to Lead Men
"VYasWngton. The wnr college dl
vision oC the general stuff of the Unit
ed States iirmy has complete plans
prepared for the moblllzutlon of a citi
zens' army. These plans were com
pleted some time ago In anticipation
of the time when the United States
might be called upon to enter Into
hostilities against a flrst-class power.
These plans were based, It Is said, up
on tho possibility that the first call
for volunteers might bo for 1,000,000
men. The war college recently pre
pared an ofllclal paper dealing with
tho raising of u volunteer army.
"Under existing laws and under con
temporaneous conditions therewith,"
says tho wur college, "It has hereto
fore been assumed that In tho event of
n war with a flrst-class power the
United States would require not less
ttiuo. hnlf u million of men for the first
line, behind which could bo prcpnred
Uie greater army of citizen soldiers
upon whom our main reliance for na
tional defense Is conditionally placed.'
Subject to President's Call
The organization of volunteer
mmies can only be undertaken follow
lng Hie presidential proclamation
Htatlng tho number needed, and on
this subject tho war college says:
"Volunteer forces may be raised, or
ganlzed nnd maintained only during
the existence or imminence of war,
and only after congress shall have au
tlhH'ized the president to raise such
forces. Congress could, however, by
legislative enactment, authorize the
president to raise such forces In time
"When so authorized, the president
will Issue his proclamation, stating the
number of men desired for each arm,
-corps, or department, within such lim
its us may be fixed by law. It is prob
nble Uiat tho proclamation will also re
cite tho causes that make tho call
necessary and will state that the en
listed men shall be taken, ns far as
practicable, from the several stntes,
territories and District of Columbia In
proportion to the respective popula
"Following the call of tho president
lor volunteers, the secretary of war
notifies the governors, etc., as In n call
for militia, informing them of tho quo
ta for their respective stutes, the exist
ing inllltla organizations that will bo
received into the voluuteers, the new
organizations' that it Is desired to
raise, and the maximum and minimum
strength of organizations."
All terms of enlistments, It Is point
ed out, "will be the same ns that for
the recular army, exclusive of reserve
periods," and no person enn be en
listed for the volunteer forces "who
is not effective and able-bodied," and
who is not within the ages stipulated
for that service under the law us It
exists nt the time of the president's
call. Neither can any man be en
listed who does not speak the English
lungunge, while persons under eight
een years of age cun be accepted only
with tho signed npproval und consent
of the parent or guardian of thut per
son. Recruiting, Rendezvous and Depots.
The war college continues:
"With n view' to recruiting nnd main
taining oil organizations of the land
forces us near their prescribed
strength ns practicable, the necessary
rendezvous nnd depots will ue esiao
llsliud by the secretary of war nnd
will be directly controlled by him. Here
4im roprnitH will be enlisted nnu
trnlned. For the purposes of Instate
Ufa nnd discipline, the troops at the
recruit denots may be orgunlzed Into
companies and buttnllons, at the dis
cretion of the secretary of war. The
noncommissioned ofllcers and privates
wnr donnrtment has decided nnd an
nounced that the appointment to vol
unteer commissions will bo mndo

have had such experience, und that
from those classes the selections will
be made In the following order:
(A) Persons who hnve had experi

"The training of volunteer troops
must begin without delny after their
Induction Into the service. No time
must bo lost. It should begin nt tho
company rendezvous, without wultlng
for complete mobilization. Under our
traditional policy of relying princi
pally for defenso upon citizen sol
diers, tho larger part of our land
forces will not be fully trained on the

probable that wo shall have to employ
