The letter to Senator Fletcher is as
' War Department
The Adjutant General's Office
Washington, June 18, 1918.
Hon. Duncan U. Fletcher,
United States Senate.
My dear Senator: Referring to your
letter of June 15, 1918, enclosing a
copy of, one from Mr. cashier,
Bank of Florida., who
desires an appointment as an officer,
I have the honor to inform you that
appointments jto the line (infantry,
cavalry, field artillery and coast ar artillery
tillery artillery ) of the army are made only
through training camps. A memor
andum concerning the camp which
began May 15, is placed herewith. It
will be noted that the great majority
of those admitted are enlisted men.
It is not believed that there will be
any radical change from this policy.
Therefore, under ; the present condi conditions
tions conditions it appears that the only chance
for Mr. to secure such ap
pointment m the army, is to enlist and
compete for it on the same basis as
other enlisted men.
Vacancies in the several staff sec
tions (quartermaster, ordnance, sig
nal, etc.) are practically closed to
civilians of the draft age unless such
civilians possess exceptional qualifica
tions not readily available in any ap
plicant outside the draft age. In view
of this, there appears to be but slight
opportunity for Mr. s appoint appointment
ment appointment to a staff section at the present
time. However, if he desires, he may
submit a letter, giving data and place
of birth and showing m detail his
education, training and experience
both civil and military. This latter
may be addressed to the chief of ord
nance', to the quartermaster general
and to the chief signal officer who will
advise him fully concerning appoint
ments in their sections.

to define what waste is. One man's waste" may be another man's""
