    This letter, from Acting Chief Signal Officer and Brigadier General Charles McKinley Saltzman to Colonel Brice P. Disque on November 6, 1917, appoints Disque to the position of commanding officer of the Spruce Production Division of the Signal Corps, headquartered in Portland, Oregon.

Saltzman concludes by noting what Disque's authority will be to request the induction of drafted men into the service, if needed. less
