ARMY NOW RELEASING MEDICAL OFFICERS  Approximately 900 medical corps officers have been relieved from the Army since Jan. 1, 1945 and approximately 7,000 more will be released during the next nine months, the War Department recently announced. One thousand medical corps officers have been requisitioned from Europe for return to the United States during June and July to relieve a shortage of doctors in the army hospitals in this country, to relieve doctors who have not had overseas service and to increase the rate of the return of doctors to civilian practice. During the past six months the patient load in army hospitals in the United States has doubled.There will be an initial lag in the discharge of medical officers over other officers because sick and wounded soldiers remain in hospitals long after battles are over. Provision is made, however, for their release as soon as possible.
