Plans for inaugurating the system of intensive instruction scheduled for the national army, Nineteenth division, Camp Travis, are going rapidly forward. Practically all details are worked out, and in fact the elementary training the recruits are receiving is in line with the system which later will be put into operation. Special attention is being given at this time to plans for opening the division schools, where the men will be trained in the various methods of warfare.
