It has been found necessary to avoid for the time being, the
public use of the designation "General Staff."

I therefore request that the subordinate Officers of the
General Staff be advised not to make use of the designation
"General Staff" (as example Captain of the General Staff,
etc.) in open correspondence, family notices and similar

                                                 Signed BECK
