From the Prague Venkov, May 25, 1918

The Minister of Defence, answering an appeal of deputy Klenensiewicz and others on behalf of soldiers who had been on the firing line from the beginning of the war, declares that the number of such soldiers is much higher than the deputy believed and the Minister is unable to grant the appeal in its fullest extent, but in order that these soldiers might be taken out of the immediately dangerous zone, at least for a certain period, an order has been issued that one-half of these men, as far as they do not themselves ask to be left at the front, should be sent back and assigned to duty as instructors of new levies.

They are to perform these duties for three months and then return to the front. The other half of such veteran soldiers will go back of the lines after the first half returns to the front.
