REPORTS OF INSPECTORS WAR DEPARTMENT Office of the Chief of Infantry In a few days you will receive a detailed rating sheet which will indicate the high and low spots of your rating. Off-hand I should say that one of the 'high lightsn at your school was the spirit and vim of the students. ... .... Was also interested in hearing of the Hearst Tro- phy. Congratulations on making such a fine record. P. W. NEWGARDEN, Col., Infantry It was a great pleasure to visit your fine school. You have a splendid institution and it is performing a very valuable service for its large community. It really has no glaring or outstanding weaknesses. Its further improvement, therefore, in axnilitary way, must result from, first, constant effort and hard work on the part of all Qjust as in the pastj, and, second, a polishing up of all the fine points in every phase of military instruction. Do this and your school, already an excellent one, is bound to improve. H. E. MARSHBUHN, Col., Infantry. In these days of the military school which are re- commended for inspection, there are no real weak points. the level of performance at such an inspection as we were obliged to make is on such a satisfactory plane that the differences between the Schools have to be largely gauged on the nrefinemnet'--the last polish, or finesse, so to speak. It is a severe competition to judge. You had a very able officer, an excellent spirit seemed to prevade the school, and the faculty and com- munity seemed to be strong for the military department. It was a real pleasure to see intimately your fine school. C. H. WHITE, Maj. Gen, U. S. Army. In looking over'my notes made on the day of inspec- tion I find no particular subject that I had which might be classed as poor. Rather, all subjects rated in a more or less uniform manner. This emphasizes in an excellent way what I preached all the way and that is -- attention to detail. Uniformity of instruction and progress, skipping no details, will surely bring results. Esprit, thoroughness, and hard work can't help but be successful. CHARLES H. BONESTEEL, Major General, Infantry. 16

REPORTSCH'RECENTINSPEUHONS ......In making such an ispection as has just been completed much valuable information is collected. Some of this is of an administrative nature, a great deal concerns training methods, and it would be a fine thing if such information could be compiled and dis- seminated to all schools. It was a great pleasure to visit your school and your oourtesies during our visit were very much ap- preciated. JAMES W. CURTIS, Lt. Col., Infantry " WAR DEPARTMENT Office of the Chief of Infantry WASHINGTON, D. C. .....It was a very interesting, instructive, but tiresome trip, however, I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and was met with fine receptions at all schools. Let me say that I particularly enjoyed my visit at your institution. T I am looking forward to the possibility of another visit. W. G. LIVESAY, Col. Inf., Ft. Benning, Ga. .....0ne of the things that struck me throughout my trip was the general natmospheren of the different institutions, in regard to the students as well as the faculty. In this respect, I found none superior to Allen. J. E. JEFFRES, Lt. Col., 29th Infantry. WAR DEPARTMENT Chief of Infantry VVASHINGTON, D. C. I find it very difficult to say anything that I would class as Wconstructive criticismn of your school. By comparing the second and third documents men- tioned you can see how, in the opinion of the Board, your school compares with the average school in its class, so far as military features are concerned. A. W. LANE, Brigadier Gen., Infantry. Your school impressed me as being one that should appeal to both young men and their parents. The spirit among the students was excellent. They all appeared to be happy and keenly interested in their work. No sug- gestions as to how you might improve the school occur to me. It seems to me that you are accomplishing the true mission of any school, i. e., improving the boys rather than seeking our boys to improve the school. J. M. CHURCHILL, Colonel, Infantry. Please accept my hearty congratulations upon making ehe Honor List. You have at Allen Academy a i.L1'L 111 ml1...001. Q EQQQ Bi Qi Ti Sli 2.1354 QQ Q L..a1'.-. - yelous spirit. It is a combination which will do won- ders and speaks well for every one connected with the institution. PAUL W. BAADE, Brig. Gen., Infantry. '15

HONOR SCHOOL - HOW SELECTED The R. O. T. C. officer of each Service Command in the United States inspects all of the essentially military schools in his Command. He selects from this list the most efficient mil- itary cadet corps, and if their standard of efficiency Will justi- fy, he recommends that the War Department include these units in the inspection made each spring by a Board of Inspect- ing Officers sent from the War Department. This Army Board visits all of the recommended schools and by a series of exacting tests selects the strongest schools in the United States. Upon recommendation of this Board the Secretary of War designates the schools with the highest grades of inspection as Honor Military Schools. HONOR GRADUATES For each year that an essentially military school is desig- nated as an Honor Military School, members of the graduating classes are selected by the head of the Institution and the Pro- fessor of Military Science and Tactics and are known as the Honor Graduates. The term "Honor Graduate" is understood to apply to a graduate whose scholarship has been outstanding and Whose cfficiency in military training and whose attention to dutv has merited the approbation of the Professor of Military Science and Tactics. The Honor Graduates must be citizens of the United States, of exemplary habits, and of good moral char- acter. HONOR GRADUATES AS CANDIDATES FOR ADMISSION TO THE U. S. MILITARY AND NAVAL ACADEMIES The Adjutant General of the Army and the Chief of the Navv Bureau will anticipate the vacancies in the corps of cadets at the United States Military and Naval Academies and will make an equitable distribution of those vacancies among the Honor Military Schools of the Country. An honor graduate of a selected institution will, upon meeting the substantuating mental examination, and subject to a satisfactory phvsical examination, be appointed a cadet of the United States Militarv Academy upon the certificate of the head of the institution that the appointee is an Honor Graduate of the institution. An Honor Graduate of an Honor Military Institution will. if successful in competitive mental examination with graduates from other similar schools and after a successful physical exam- ination, be appointed a Midshipman in the United States Naval Academy upon certificate from the head of the institution that the appointee is an Honor Graduate of the institution. 17
