Wanted Longer Army Detaili.
Military men are reaching the con
clusion that one of the next steps that
should be made for the improvement
of army efficiency is the lengthening
of the details. Since the war with
Spain it has come to be the rule .to
limit the assignments of officers and
men to any one post or field of activity
to three years. As a consequence the
army Is ln an almost conttnuoua state
of motion and commotion.
The original reason . for. the three
year detail waa supposed to be a hu
manitarian desire to shield the soldier
from the extremes of temperature,
particularly ln the tropical Philippines
and frigid Alaska, by moving him to
more temperate zones before the heat
or cold should tell upon him too
greatly. It has been learned by ex
perlence, however, that there is no
three-year limit to physical endurance
in the tropics, and as a matter ot fact,
by an occasional change of posts from
season to season, the troops in the
Philippines can have all the benefits
of balmy ocean breezes in winter and
cool mountain atmosphere in the sum
mer without traveling any distance,
The civil officers in the Philippines, as
well aa elsewhere, although aubject
to no three-year rotation, show no
effects of hardship, and certainly trop
ical or Arctic climate can be no worse
for soldiers than for civil officers.
If the reason for shortening the
army detail has disappeared, or never
existed, the reason for longer details
are real and pertinent. Aa it is now
an army officer scarcely becomes lo
cated before be begins to figure on his
next move, and the certainty of its
close proximity takes away from him
the incentive to get his bearings and
settle down aa for a steady Job. Tbe
army ninder this ayatem, both officers
and men, must lack the Steadiness that
helps toward discipline, to say nothing
of the tremendous transportation cost
ot this almost continuous exchange be
tween widely separated stations.
A powerful plea could also be put
in for the wivea and families of our
military men. With no prospect of
abiding in one place longer than three
years, the havoc such perpetual mo
tion makes on the family exchequer
