The War Department wants a name other than Camp Funston for the reserve officers’ training camp at Leon Springs and has asked Southern Department headquarters to make a selection. In turn headquarters has decided to let the peopie of San Antonio  and other places throughout this section make suggestions. The name “Camp Funston” is carried by a military camp in Kansas, and the same name being applied to the camp hare, has resulted in confusion. As a result the department decided to change the name of the camp here letting the Kansas camp retain the name in view of the fact that Kansas was the native state of the late General Funston.
