OFFICER SENT HOME -- COLORED (Continued from page 1) signed to the medical corps as a first lieutenant, returned to his home in the East last week. The story goes that Dr. Foster had of the Seventh Corps Area in Omaha. Upon arrival, he was informed that his quarters had not been prepared and for him to report to the chief of staff of the medical department on August 6. This he did, and was given a thorough examination, and told to report to the adjutant general on August 7. When he reported to the adjutants office, Dr. Foster was informed that because of the overcrowded condition in the officers' quarters, there would not be a place for him and was again told to report there on the following day. As he was leaving, a sergeant, not knowing what alibi had been framed, accidentally informed Dr. Foster that his (Dr. Foster's) quarters had been prepared and that an orderly had been designated for him. Upon reporting to the adjutant's office again, he was informed that the original order which sent him to Leavenworth had been amended so as to releve [[relieve]] him from further duty. He later received a letter from the headquarters in Omaha stating that he was found "physically unfit for service," but the letter made no statement as to the nature of the unfitness". There are no Negro commissioned officers at the post in Fort Leavenworth. Dr. Foster is a graduate of Wiley College and the Meharry Medical School. He served his interneship [[internship]] at General Hospital No. 2, completing his service in June. Dr. Foster has passed the Kansas State Board examination. He returned to his home in Philadelphia, where he was serving as junior house physician at Douglass Hospital. WALKER SCHOOL GRAD.
