CALL SECOND DRAFT
QUOTA IN DECEMBER
INDICATIONS POINT TO MAR
SHALING NEXT INCREMENT
BEFORE FIRST OF YEAR;
MANY SHORTAGES TO
BE MADE UP.
Washington, Oct. 1?..- -Discussion
of the advisability of expediting the
call for the second incrriiutnt of the
draft army now is in progress at
the War department i'lia it appears
likely that ;the' date may be fixed
for. pome time in December or Jan
uary. Mobilization of the first increment
of GST, 000 men is now far enough
advanced to show clearly that tneie
will be a big defio'eney for the sev
enteen national army divioions. More
than 250. 000. of the first increment
are still to be assembled, but it al-
Teady is evident that there will be
available at the sfxteen cantonments
Quarters for an additional regiment
at each post and at some for a full
brigade of two regiments.
Fifty Thousand Short.
The strength of the new regi
mental organization is 3,600 men.
With a regiment lacking at each
cantonment, this alone would mean
a shortage of nearly uO.000 men.
In addition there has been author
ized a separate division of negro
troops, which means nearly 30,000
men withdrawn from the original
number assigned to the sixteen can
tonments. The shortage is due partially to
the necessity of taking out of na
tional army men to fill up National
Guard divisions. Two complete na
tional army divisions of southern
troops have been absorbed in this
way. The remnants of three other
southern national army divisions
will be consolidated to form a single
divisional unit, and the surplus
men from other camps will be sent
south to make up the missing divi
sions. To Fill Aviation Corps.
Drafts on the national army forces
also must be made to fill up the en
listed personnel of the aviation
service, the medica lcorps and the
service battalions needed behind the
fighting lines abroad. Eventually
there will be 250,000 men ia the
last named service alone, and avia
tion and the medical service will
take nearly as many more, though
not all of them will be taken from
the national army.
