REPORTS OF INSPECTORS
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
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.

......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

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.
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

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.

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-

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
