A total of $263,405.96 was expended for theater construction and improvements at several military stations, and under the profit-sharing disbursement plan $94,334.34 was returned to 67 posts.

CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS Altogether 1,087,107 men have been enrolled in the Civilian Conservation Corps since its establishment in April 1933. The total separations for all causes up to June 30, 1935, were 728,549, leaving an enrollment of 358,558 on that date. At the close of the fiscal year there were 359 Regular Army officers, 9,284 Reserve officers, 295 naval officers, and 521 Regular Army enlisted men on duty with the Civilian Conservation Corps serving with 2,110 companies at 2,026 camps. The War Department's participation in this work consists of transporting and assigning the men to the various camps; their enrollment, physical conditioning, and general supervision while in camp; and the operation and maintenance of the camps and supervision of welfare and social activities therein. In cooperation with the War Department, a Director of Education in the Office of the Commissioner of Education, Department of the Interior, has carried on a program for the instruction of enrollees in educational and vocational subjects.

This office conducts a variety of correspondence concerning the Civilian Conservation Corps; maintains a continuous statistical record of the number enrolled, of personnel on duty therewith, and of the location of companies, camps and projects; and allots funds for both the welfare and educational activities. During the fiscal year 1935, $1,117,244.57 was available to this office for welfare purposes, of which the sum of $838,846.32 was allotted and $278,398.25 was carried over into the new fiscal year. A total of $2,642,498.91 was also available for the educational program during the fiscal year. This amount was allotted with the exception of $6,369.34, which balance was carried over to be used after June 30, 1935.
