TO TUB EDITOR. Sir.—As I understand the oxecutivn of the National Reserve propose to discontinue the weekly parades during the summer | months. I would like to point out that in so | doing they, in the opinion of many members of the force, will not, be acting in the. best, iutcresi of the organisation. We hove cheerfully turned out right through (ho winter. Purely we should not be deprived of working under more pleasant conditions in regard to light and weather obtainable during the Rummer months. I think the only vacation | necessary would be one sufficient to carry us over'the Christinas and New Year hoh- ; days, say from December 17 to January 7. j .Some of'our members are strongly of opinion | that ihe proposed long vacation will have a ; very great tendency towards disbanding the reserve as s body--an event which would h a | deeply deplored after tho vast, amount of | time "and labor that has been expended in; bringing ir to its present, efficient state, j Fvcn if some of our officers should not be j able to attend, I feel sure that there- would , be sufficient, available to carry on the work | until such time as they can resume, their j duties. Trusting that someone else will take ; this matter up—l am. etc.. I EvTirrsiAST. November 16.
