JANUARY 7, 1918


          Secretary of War Baker, in his annual report, makes it plain that he does not favor universal military training as a national policy.

          “The department has not sought and does not now seek legislation on the subject,” he says, “chiefly for the reason that the formation of a permanent military policy will inevitably be affected by the arrangement consequence upon the termination of the present war.  Civilized men must hope that the future has in store a relief from the burden of armament and the destruction and waste of war.

          “When a permanent military policy, therefore, comes to be adopted, it will doubtless be conceived in a spirit which will be adequate to preserve against any possible attack those vital principles of liberty upon which democratic institutions are based, and yet be so restrained as in no event to foster the growth of mere militarist ambitions or to excite the apprehension of nations with whom it is our first desire to live in harmonious and just accord.”

          Notwithstanding the expression of these views by Secretary Baker, however, a large number of congressmen and senators favor universal military training and have announced their intention of trying to have a bill providing for it passed at the present session.



            With the railroads now operated by the Government, under the direction of Secretary of Treasury McAdoo, it is expected that the movement of troops and supplies will be greatly expedited.  Henceforth the army will have first call on all transportation facilities and shipments not absolutely necessary to the conduct of the war will be given second consideration.  It is believed that the operation of the railroads by the Government will greatly accelerate the speed of the war machinery throughout the nation.

            In his proclamation on the subject President Wilson said the railroads would be taken over “to the end that such systems of transportation be utilized for the transfer and transportation of troops, war materials and equipment to the exclusion so far as may be necessary of all other traffic thereon, and that so far as such exclusive use be not necessary or desirable, such systems of transportation be operated and utilized in the performance of such other services as the national interest may required and of the usual and ordinary business and duties of common carriers.





            Anent the question of shoulder marks for a second lieutenant, now settled by the adoption of a gold bar on each shoulder, Col. John C. Stiles recalls the plan of General Rosecrans, who, in July, ’63, ordered that second lieutenants should wear a single bar on the right shoulder only.  He adds: 

            “As this bar is not very weighty, there will be no danger of a starboard list to the wearer as was the case in the old U.S. Navy, where, I believe, a first lieutenant was only allowed to wear one epaulette when in full dress”.



            Instruction was being given as to targets, and the officer said to a gunner, “You see that sapling on the hillside?”  “No, sir,” said the man, after a careful look; “I don’t see no sapling.”  “What!” said the officer, “you see no sapling!  Why, there’s only one, right in front of you!”  The man looked again, and reported as before.  “Look here,”  said the officer, “do you know what a sapling is?”  “Oh, yes, sir,” replied the gunner,  “a Young Big.” -                    London Chronicle.



            About 15,00 non-commissioned officers and privates in the camps and cantonments throughout the country are on their mettle today as never before, having been designated to take the course of training to be officers.  All of them may not win the honor of being placed on the list of eligible for commissions, but each man who takes the course will be inestimably benefited.

            The War Department is desirous of seeing all the men pass the final tests and placed on the eligible list and the instructors will do everything in their power to develop the non-commissioned officers and privates into officers during the three months training period ending April 5.  There will be great need of officers when the American Army starts its big push “Over There”, and practically every man who finishes the course will get a commission sooner or later.

            The men designated to take the course of training were selected with absolute impartiality and with the single thought as to their fitness.  The 1.7 per cent of men designated are supposed to represent the cream of the intelligence in the enlisted personnel in the National Guard and National Army.  The same rules which governed the selection of these men will determine the make up of the eligibility list.

            Conduct, leadership, ability to learn quickly, ability to instruct others, general suitability, military appearance, etc., will be the tests by which the men in training will be judged.

            While taking the course the men will be carried on detached service and will receive the pay and allowance of the grade in which they were before being designated.



Activities getting in full Swing - Women to Be Hostesses

          Now that the holidays are well over, the Knights of Columbus activities will soon be in full swing.  Benny Leonard has arranged to give exhibition bouts and free instruction in the Auditorium, Upton Boulevard, every Wednesday night, beginning Jan. 9.  An athletic carnival will also be arranged for those nights.

            Secretary Grade is going to have the regimental basketball games on Tuesdays and Thursdays and the other nights in the week at the Auditorium will be devoted to the various company and regimental shows.

            The 357th Buffaloes are preparing to stage a big show in the K. of C. Auditorium, and Sergt. Battle, Headquarters Company, promises the camp a real treat.

            Preparations are being made to install a first class moving picture machine in the Auditorium, and Messrs. Fox and Brady, widely known film men of

 New York, have promised all the films needed, including features of big time caliber.

            A committee of ladies of the Catholic Women’s League were visitors in camp during the holiday and became very deeply interested in the Auditorium and clubhouses.  They plan to have a hostesses’ section for women visitors during Sundays and holidays.

            The bayonet classes under Capt. Brown and Sergt. Major Covington, of the British Mission, continue to hold interest for the men who drop into the hall during their progress.

            Anyone who hasn’t witnessed the stocky, rangy, enthusiastic drill-sergeant at work has missed one of the big items of life at Upton as it is, Major Haskell made an informal inspection recently, and the non-commissioned officers in the course demonstrated effectively the rapid strides they have made under their instructors.  When their men meet the Hun, he’s due for an unpleasant surprise.  Their deftness has the ring of conviction about it.


          Mail this paper home when you finish reading it.  The folks back home want to read it!!!!



          If Trench and Camp interests or entertains you, why not share your pleasure with mother and your other relatives by sending this paper to them?





            It is certain that the soldiers of this particular camp are doing a generous share in relieving suffering in stricken Belgium, as east off civilian clothing of all sorts continues to flow into the Belgian Relief Commission here.  Heavy, warm overcoats and suits in such good condition that a Third Avenue second –hand man would display them among his best “take me homes” are among the hundreds of garments turned into the hands of the commission.  Silken hosiery, roseate neckwear, bravely colored shirtings and very known brand of unmentionables are among the garments, no longer of any value to Uncle Sam’s nephews.

            The bundies of clothing are received at the various central points about camp and are taken up by the commission’s truck for shipment to New York and thence to Belgium.  Many company commanders have explained to their men, upon issue of the regulation habiliments, the opportunity to help by the disposal of the cast-off’s and have given them explicit information regarding disposal.  The commission is notified of the presence of clothing and the truck is sent to collect.





            The 407th Motor Supply Train gave their farewell entertainment at the Y.M.C.A., 14th Street and 2nd Avenue, the other night.  The programme was as follows:  Meyers, contortionist act; Leo Bembeimer, baritone solo; Andrew Flelsehman, the man with the funny legs, buck and wing dance; Charles Reno, the boy with the man’s voice; Phil. Schuman, imitation of a dope fiend in “From Here to Shanghal;” Hecktor-Healy Company, sketch entitled “Somewhere in Long Island.”

            The train’s noted comedian, Pete Carvo, got a big laugh with his new sketch, “The Italian Counsellor;” Billie Mack, one of the Train’s famous singers, warbled a bit; Abe Krauss, character impersonator, gave an imitation of George Beban in “The Sign of the Rose;” Marty Morrison and Jerry Roth missed mitts for two rounds, and that boy Morrison is some boxer; and the show closed with William Ottinger leading the crowd in the train’s favorite ditty; “It’s a long way to Berlin, but we’ll get there.”  Lieut. Cassals was in charge of the programme and the boys owe their fun largely to him.

            Claude W. Enlow, till lately private in Company L, 313th Infantry, told his Sergeant he’d come to Camp Meade (Admiral, Md.) 0 prepare to fight the Germans and would not peel potatoes.  He refused to accept the honors of K.P. even when the disobeyal  was carried to his carried from the service and is now doing three years at Fort Jay (N.Y.), the sentence handed down in court martial trial.

                SHORT STORIES

            At Camp Zachary Taylor (Louisville, Ky.), it’s the “Kit’ Carson rifle Range,” the shooting ground being named from an ideal type of American pioneer.  He belonged to a school of marksmen now developing followers in Upton.  To this school a squirrel’s eye is an easy target at 100 yards.



        Doubt that Camp Fremont (Palo Alto, Cal,) would be one of Uncle Sam’s large camps has been removed.  A committee of San Francisco citizens has purchased leases on property needed for expansion, and additional troops are now being sent there.



            The Veterinary Corps, whose regular hang-out is on 16th Street, had a farewell night at the Upper J “Y.”  Lieut. Stumpf, who was the moving force behind the project, had things very excellently arranged and a first class programme greeted the large crowed that collected for the celebration.  Everybody  was satisfied, and several of the boys were heard to remark that they hoped the Vets. Would give a farewell show every couple of weeks.  They might well do so, as they are always expecting to leave the “next” week.

                        Something new, novel and nutritious in the way of entertainment will be afforded on Jan. 23 when the Society of Swedish Folk Dancers of New York appears at the Y.M.C.A. Auditorium in a programme of music and dances.  Some of the dances which are to be presented are more than a hundred years old and all with be done in picturesque costtime.

            Sergt. F.R. Johnson, Company C. 306th Machine Gun Battalion, and Private O.a. Larson, 302d engineers, who are members of the society, will participate.  Carl Sulvan, another National Army boy, attached to the Base Hosptial, will officiate at the piano, used exlusively for the dancing.  The programme will be diversified with vocal music, K.V. Peterson, a prominent Swedish tenor from New Yor, being scheduled to furnish a goodly portion of entertainment.  The affair will be open to all men of the camp and will be free.

There are nearly three hundred Scandinavians – Swedes, Norwegians and Dances – at Upton, and the promotion of the affair will be especially interesting to them and will receive their backing.



            “Are you an officer in the National Army?”  a certain fair dame asked Lieut. Davis of the 6th Company at home the other day

            “No, I’m in the 152d Depot Brigade.,” The lieutenant humbly confessed.
