ACTUAL STRENGTH OF THE ARMY.

The actual strength of the entire Military Establishment on June 30, 1915, by branches of service, is shown in the following table:

[blocks in formation]

Includes 97 first lieutenants of the Medical Reserve Corps on active duty. * Includes 3,993 enlisted men of the Hospital Corps and 4,388 enlisted men of the Quartermaster Corps.

COMPARISON OF AUTHORIZED AND ACTUAL STRENGTH.

The following table is presented for the purpose of showing the authorized and the actual strength of the Military Establishment on June 30, 1915, and June 30, 1914, together with the increases during the year and the number of vacancies on each of those dates. The enlisted strength of the Hospital Corps and of the Quartermaster Corps is included in the figures shown in the table:

[blocks in formation]

The large number of vacancies (218) in the commissioned officers' personnel on June 30, 1915, is due to the fact that the 163 graduates from the Military Academy were not appointed until after the close of the fiscal year, although those appointments, when made, were made as of the date of graduation, June 12, 1915. Excluding these, the

vacancies among commissioned officers on June 30, 1915, were 55, chiefly in the Medical Department, the Corps of Engineers, and the Signal Corps. All the vacancies in the enlisted strength were in the Staff Corps and departments and the miscellaneous, the enlisted strength of the line having been recruited to its authorized strength.

PHILIPPINE SCOUTS.

There was no change made in the organization and authorized strength of the Philippine Scouts during the past fiscal year. The Scouts are organized into 13 battalions of 4 companies each, a total of 52 companies of enlisted natives of the Philippine Islands, with a total authorized strength of 182 officers and 5,733 enlisted men.
