The student class at the school was composed of 13 members, 1 of whom was transferred from the school before the completion of the course of instruction on account of sickness. Of the 12 remaining members of the class, 9 received the diploma of the school, and 3 others, not being entirely proficient in all the branches taught at the school, failed to receive the diploma.

No attempt has been made to arrange the names of the student officers in order of merit, as the courses of study pursued by them differed materially and it is difficult to make a proper comparison. Such grading is generally distasteful to the student officers and many objections are urged against it.

The experience of the past school year has shown the desirability of some other incentive than now exists on the part of such officers as possess the capacity but lack the disposition to apply themselves. It is believed that the experience with many, if not all, of the classes of the past has been similar.

The fact that an officer is a graduate of the Artillery School is not only noted in the Army Register, but it serves for a period of five years in lieu of an examination for promotion. It is therefore felt to be only just to the school that in the case of any officer who, baving taken any course of instruction at the school, is pronounced deficient therein and therefore ineligible for a diploma, some appropriate penalty should be imposed, unless, in the opinion of the school board, the failure to attain proficiency was not due to any fault or neglect on the part of the student officer. Very respectfully,

F. L. GUENTHER, Colonel Artillery Corps, Commandant.
