Signals passed from officer to of- ficer and on to the men under each one serve for the usual barked commands. The signals, of course, are made with the hands. The Texas School for the Deaf in Austin adopted military train- ing in 1928. Since that time all of the boys who are over fifteen are put in uniforms and required to meet regular drills. Regulation uniforms made in the school's own tailor shop are worn. The officers are promoted on a system of merit which takes into co...
