The mov- ing will continue without cessation un- til the beginning of May when it will have to be interrupted again owing to the opening ceremony. No members of the staffs may be transferred after the first two or three days of May until the ceremonials have been dispensed with, and then the moving may be con- tinued only for a few weeks, owing to the advance of winter. It Is con- sidered possible that transfers may continue until well into June, but it is not considere...
