At present there are 1,600 physicians in 1,625 camps and military hospitals throughout the country. It is planned to increase the number of camps to 2,917 by August 1. The operation of the camps and the enrolment of physicians are in charge of the various corps area commanders. General medical supervision is under the direction of Major Gen. Charles R. Reynolds, surgeon general of the army. It is the policy of the war department to select physicians for service with the Civilian Conservation Corps who are members of the medical reserve corps, but in some communities part time contract physicians will be employed who may not be members of the reserve corps.
