Company commanders are urged to complete their practice by July 15, if possible,' and failure to instruct at least 50 per cent, of the total strength of the company present for duty, in firing at 200 yards each season, will render the company liable to be mustered out of the service as falling below the standard of efficiency of the Iowa national guard.
