The course has been a most dijfeult one, but, as the following pages will show, not without its lighter moments, and we shall always feel that we can at any time refeiew this, our DOUGHBOY, with great pleasure and mueh pr-ont. . N W , , , THE INFANTRY OT in one battle nor in one campaign, not in one war nor even in one century. did the Infantry win the crown of the "Queen of Battles." lfnthroned twenty-live hundred years ago, the lnfan- try's royal place through the succeeding ages has become more surely fixed until with the close of the Nvorld Xvar there is none successfully to dispute the preference. Only by blood and sweat, privation and hard- ship, only by perseverance and hardihood, by sheer heart and soul has its position been won. Too businesslilce to be romantic, too bloody to be attractive to the nobility, it has not always received its mead of written praise. But down through history when kingdoms were made or fell, when civiliaations rose or were submerged the lnfantry has been at the heart of the contest. The lnfantry stands not alone nor to it belongs the sole credit. There has always been glory enough for all. The human body needs other organs than the heart and so the Infantry needs the other arms to com- plete the perfect whole. The lnfantry owes its place to the fact that it is the People. The Infantryman is the lighting machine with a soul. He is an instrument of war created by God and no man-made machine may equal or excel him. YVhen a people have been strong, sturdy, clean and imbued with love of country its infantry has shown like qualities. But when ease, luxury, licen- tiousness and the mad' pursuit of money have rotted the heart of the body politic the Infantry has suffered likewise. The lnfantryman is not made in a day. Because he marches against the enemy by the aid of his own legs, to grapple with the enemy with his own hands, because of the iron discipline he must acquire, because of the versatility which must be his, because his very individuality which is his strength when trained may be his undoing when untrained, he may only attain the condition of a good Tnfantryman after long, unremitting, arduous and thorough training. There is a peculiar impression of irresistible power given by great bodies of marching men. There is no man with soul so sodden that he does not thrill at the steady beat of the Infantry march nor feel the tre- mendous latent power that lies within. The dash of cavalry, the rumble of the guns may quicken him to greater surface enthusiasm, but they do not leave him with that persistent impression of power. It is the soul of the Infantry that he feels. Only the rush, continuous, mighty, eternal of the waters over Niagara may' be likened to it. The prowess of the Infantry and its influence on man and his affairs stand out dramatically in the pages of history. It was ten thousand Greek Infantrymen who, faced by ten times their number smashed the Persian hosts at lVIarathon twenty-five hundred years ago and assured tous Greek civilization With its gifts of art and letters. And here was first definitely established the supremacy of the men of the VVest over those of the East-a supremacy maintained even to this day. It was the Infantryman who made good Sparta's boast that men, not walls, were her protection. It was the Infantryman who gave to the world at Thermopylae that unparalleled example of soldierly devotion. It was the Infantryman about whom Alexander builded the army that hewed for him his great empire out of the East and marched with him from the Aegean Sea to the heights of the Himalayas. It was the Infantryman who carried the Roman law and govern- mental system over the world and who held Rome's far-Hung frontiers against every assault so long as Rome herself deserved such devotion. It was the English archer who brought down the knight from his blundering horse and drove in the thin edge of the wedge that finally broke the back of the feudal system with its privileges for the few and its oppres- sion of the many. The Dark Ages cast their shadow over the Infantry. For the warrior who felt the need of an armored skin so weighty as to require the services of other legs than his own and who spent his days philandering about the country slaying seven-headed, fire-eating dragons, or in beating a tattoo on the tin back of his opponent for the smiles of some fair maiden, the bloody, businesslike and unbefurbelowed infantry was no attractive service. There was a gory crudeness about infantry work which must have proved most distasteful to the scions of the leading families of that day. And let it not be forgotten that these were. the men with the money and the honors to acquire the services of the Troubadours and Chroniclers who then, even as now, sang their sweetest and scribbled their mightiest where the flesh pots lay. It Was the breekless Infantryman who did NOT run at the thunder of the guns at Valmy, and who gave Democracy its chance in the face of all the privilege of Europe. It was to the lnfantry of the Old Guard that Napoleon turned in his last desperate attempt to save his lfmpire at Xvaterloo and it was the British lnfantry that broke the Qld Guard and W1'OtC linis to Napoleon's story. ln was the lnfantry who faced lnfantry in our Civil VVar and strewed the country from the Mississippi to the sea with their bodies. And it was an lnfantryman whose infantry qualities of dogged perseverence, loyalty to principle and contempt of losses finally preserved these United States as one. In the XVorld 'War though subjected to all that history and modern ingenuity could devise by way of frightfulness and terror the lnfantryman acquitted himself gloriously, though he paid the time-old price with his dead. Neither bomb nor shell nor bullet nor poison gas nor flame could daunt him and he went his way to victory as was his wont. The lnfantryman has never felt the need of surrounding his profession with mystery or strange names. But whether it be the javelin or the spear, the dagger or the sword, the, long bow or the cross bow, the arque- bus, the musket or the rifle, the machine gun, cannon, mortar or the tank, to them the Infantry has been ever ready to turn its hand and make good use of them in battle. The Infantry stands today as it has stood down through the ages- stout-hearted, undaunted, ever ready to take one more step toward the enemy, ever ready to strike him one more blow. l THE INFANTRY SCHOOL Iell-fN in November, 1551, the Cieneral-in-Chief regarded "as ad- mirable" the "new School of ,Xpplication at Leavenworth," the Qxfllly unconsciously entered upon its period of Rennaissance. Later Cieneral XYagner, like lfrasmus with the classics, culled the best military thought of lfurope and .Xmerica and presented it to the line oflicer. The profession of arms rudely but surely started upon a larger development of science and skill. The .Xrmy stretched itself to find that it was awakening from the Dark .Xges of provincial life into which the nation had thrown it. The lnfantry School is the culmination of the Rennaissance of the United States qXi'iiiy. Not that it is content and feels itself perfect. Such a state would be the very thing to block its advancement. Un the contrary, its attitude is that of constant effort. It has reached the realization of a principle which makes for solid improvement-the principle of being Will- ing and anxious to discard the old as soon as the new has proven itself. So the School with its 97,ooo acres of diversified ground, regiments of Infantry. its battalion of Field Artillery, its Tank battalion, its large service detachments of white and colored troops, its veterinary section, its company of Engineers, its Gas Company, its Urdnance Nlaintenance Company, its great hospital, its large printing plant, its complete photo- graphic section, its access to adjacent air service, its School for Bakers and Cooks, its 40 miles of 60 cm. railway and its experimental target range, over Whose Waters the effectiveness of any weapon can be completely determined, is within itself capable of certain and quick results in technique and tactics of Infantry. Here for the first time in the history of this country there is enough space to Work out problems of mobility on a large scale. There is territory sufficiently diversined to give large classes of field and company officers exercises on different kinds of terrain every day throughout the scholastic year. When General lVIalone uttered the requirements of an Infantry School he gave a complete answer to the previous, blank military policy in this country. The training' ground must be a battlefield. The instruction must be continued the entire year. The kind of ground must permit every phase of action to be encountered by a modern infantryman-the ap- proach, the engagement, the break through and the pursuit. The reserva- tion must permit the simultaneous training of thousands of riflemen in accurate target practice, in field firing exercises, in artillery and machine gun barrages with live ammunition, in secret marches over considerable distances, in night occupation of trenches, in advance by compass through total darkness, in the attack over ground extensive enough to represent a day's battle and in the resumption of the offensive after the break. 1 All these conditions Benning fulfills for its classes. Students actually do the work. They apply all that can be applied individually and the troops demonstrate the rest. Everything is actual but the bullet Wound. Further, the Infantry Board is locatedwithin the limits of the garri- son. Together with the Department of Experiment and the troops avail- able, it is ready to test thoroughly and pass upon speedily any project in technique. Such action has become a necessity, especially since the VVorld VVar. Before that time the infantry had always been recognized as the mainstay of any army. The rilleman with both feet on the ground has ever been the final necessity for victory. By magnitude and quality he was the chief element of military strength. Withoiit losing any of these elements he suddenly in the recent conflict grew out of all resemblance to his former self. Pandora's box had been opened. Hand grenades, rifle grenades, machine guns, tanks, automatic rifles, mortars and one-pounders summoned the foot-soldier with many mysterious voices. The infantry had come to be the technical arm of the service. The machine gun of itself had grown as intricate in its use and workings as the 3-inch field piece. Although the Doughboy was sad- dled with no less responsibility for a successful issue of the fight than before, he was forced besides to an intimate understanding of his weapons. and their use before he could conscientiously accept his position as a leader. The Infantry School, therefore, within a year after peace, metamor- phosed itself from a small school of bfusketry into the largest plant of its kind in the world. lrlundreds of infantry oHicers were taught, drilled and trained in the best that this big vital branch of the service could give them. Instructors of the greatest experience during the war were brought to the Faculty. Cther branches sent their co-ordinating teachers. Nlethods changed and outgrew themselves. The "Demonstrationl' came to play the most influential part it has ever played in any pedagogical scheme. And officers learned their science and art, became familiar with the authori- tative voice of their arm, and went away confident and inspired. So the School has kept pace with progress. In some cases it has out- stripped it. ln the four short years of its existence it has stridden for- ward with such surety that its beginnings are scarcely recognizable in the present. The Benning graduate is demanded. XVherever he goes, in or out of the service, he bears the stamp of knowledge of his branch. He repre- sents the latest achievement of Infantry technique and tactics. y He carries with him soundness and uniformity. The Infantry School has articulated the backbone of the United States Army.

A., Assistant Commandant AN APPRECIATION . ENERAL PAUL B. MALONE, after serving as Assistant Com- mandant for three years, was called to other duties in the middle of the present school year. We can not let him leave us Without an expression of our appreciation of him and his services. VVe appreciate him as a man for his splendid character, for his great capacity for work, for his optimism, his patience and his sense of humor. Obstacles have only served to spur him to greater effort. Keen, thorough, indefatigable, but withal intensely human, he is a leader of men. Forward thinking, but ever mindful of the immutable principles of our profession, he had moulded our thought on infantry combat. He has impressed upon us the importance of sound, logical reasoning. He has stressed the co-ordination of all the elements of a command, and has brought us to a realization of what co-ordination really means. He has ever held before us, not only in his person, but in his teaching, the impor- tance of human element in combat. He has builded a course of instruc- tion founded on thorough preparation and accurate and speedy execution. And throughout it all, he has never failed to express his own appreciation of the assistance and efforts of his subordinates. The burden of his many exacting military duties has not caused him to neglect his part as a loyal and patriotic citizen. VVith his magnetic personality and his skill as a public speaker he has let no opportunity pass to impress upon the people the necessity of preparedness and to bring them to an understanding of the part which the army plays in the safety and welfare of his country. General lvlalone has contributed in no small degree to the success of The Infantry School, and through its graduates his influence has been carried on to the Infantry. For the high place in training methods and ability which it holds in the armies of the world our Infantry is deeply indebted to him. - His work has been indelibly impressed on the Infantry School and the K'Days of Malone" will never be forgotten.

For the school year of 1922-1923 the First Section was organized in four lettered committees, "A," "B," "C" and HD." In turn their work was re-allotted within each com- mittee. For specific demonstration purposes the following troops of the post were trained under the general supervision of the First Section: First Battalion, 29th Infantry, all Headquarters Companies, 29th Infantry, First Bat- talion, 83rd Field Artillery, Company HA," 7th Engineers, a detachment of the ISt Gas Regiment, and the 15th Tank Battalion. An outline of the instruction covered by each of the four committees follows: COMIVIITTEE HA." Committee "A" was charged with the presentation of all subject matter relative to organization, staff, supply, troop movement, and shelter, the instruction being given through conferences, map and terrain exercises, map problems, and demonstrations.

Staff instruction covered the organization and functioning in combat of the battalion, regimental, and brigade staffs, the course being concluded with a held exercise in communi- cation and command with a reinforced brigade for the Advanced Class and a regiment for the Company Ofhcers' Class. Under the subject of supply were discussed the principles governing the system of supply of equipment, rations, and munitions to Infantry units in combat. The study of troop movements involved movement by marching, rail, and motor transportation. The material under the heading of shelter pertained primarily to the prin- ciples to be observed in the selection of camp sites and billets with a discussion of perma- nent and semi-permanent types of shelter. The scope of the instruction covered by Committee "A" was practically the same for the Advanced-and.

The object of the instruction throughout the year was to familiarize students in the Advanced and Company Officers' Classes with the methods and means of signal communi- cations within the infantry brigade, with a minimum of time devoted to the technical and theoretical side of the subjects discussed. The course in military intelligence covered primarily the organization and use of combat intelligence units of infantry organizations, their training and functioning in combat, the methods of acquiring information, of interpreting it, of preparing it for use, and giving it the proper distribution. units M A J.

COMMITTEE HC." Instruction in that part of military engineering of particular interest to the Infantry officer was in the hands of Committee "C," the senior instructor being an officer of the Engineer Corps detailed by the Chief ot Engineers.

LEONARD, I7l5fl'1lt'f01', Tanks. Except for some difference in the amount of detail covered both the Advanced and the Company Officers' Classes took the same subjects: Use of instruments, map reading, sketching, Field fortifications, aerial photographs, and the employment of engineer troops in open warfare. During the course conferences were held on the use of the prismatic' and lensatic compasses and practical work was given with these instruments. By conferences and prac- tical problems the elementary principles of map reading were covered. Explanations and demonstrations in the use of each article of sketching equipment were made to the classes. Several area and road sketches were made by the student-ofI'i- cers, the work in the latter involving both mounted and dismounted exercises. When in- clement weather interfered with the outdoor instruction, sketches were made from the sand tab es. Conferences illustrated by lantern slides were given covering the subject of aerial photography. The subject of field fortifications involved the study of various types of trenches, their profiles, the execution of field Works, camouflage, and entanglements. Demonstrations by Engineer troops, conferences, and map problems brought out the use of Engineers in open warfare and their duties with relation to the functioning of other troops. . CoMMtr'riz12 "DF Instruction in the tactical employment of all infantry combat units ranging from the individual scout to the brigade was covered by Committee "D," Sufficient instruction in the tactics and technique of supporting arms, artillery, chemical warfare, cavalry and air service, were included to' enable infantry commanders to intelligently co-operate with or command supporting or attached units of these arms. The instruction was divided into several phases such as scouting and patroling, com- bined instruction in both defensive and offensive action of the rifie squad, section, platoon and company. and the tactical use of machine gun units, three-inch mortars, and 37 111111 QUUS. Qther subdivisions of the instruction concerned tactical principles for the handling of the units from the battalion to the brigade in combat, artillery tactics in general, and artillery-infantry "team work." and sufficient knowledge of cavalry tactics to permit of in- telligent co-operation with the mounted troops. The tank as an auxiliary weapon was given a prominent place in the course, its tac- tical use in support of other infantry units being stressed. The mechanism of drafting field orders, training programs, and the preparation of map problems were also covered. To Committee "D" was also assigned the study of chemical warfare. This subject was limited to the uses of smoke and non-toxic chemical agents and to the study of the defense against the possible use of toxic chemical agents by a hostile force. s- fits i 1 qfY'if'TfY 14 X7v , 9 Ky 13, N mix ' ,X ' NYY? 1 A fl Xflxlv ,xv :JH 51 Xp , AW MN ,f WK 'V X W' ' NNI"'ff'!'

ONE POUNDER AND LIGHT MORTAR SECTION The instruction given at the Infantry School in the 37 MM Gun and tlIe 3-inch Trench Mortar is combined in one course and represents a consolidation of the instruction given at the weapon schools in the United States and Europe during the war, with practices found to give the best results with troops during and since the War. Our present organization requires that a howitzer platoon operate both weapons and that individual members of the platoon be trained as replacements for either gun.

CL'I.I.I-:N, lzzstruclor The methods of obtaining firing data and fire adjustments-"technique of tire"-are identical for both weapons as are also certain portions of the cart drill. A characteristic of the 37 MM Gun and the Mortar upon which the technique Of fire is based is that the tire of these guns can always be Observed. lnasmuch as best results are obtained by taking full advantage of this characteristic, considerable practice is necessary in obtaining data, opening fire quickly, and adjusting fire by observation. Following this principle, con- siderable field firing is included in the course of instruction for both weapons. The student officers have an opportunity at this time to practice the duties of each member of the gun crews during firing, to observe the functioning of the pieces and secure a working knowledge of their capabilities and limitations from a tactical standpoint. AUTOMATIC RIFLE SECTION In IQI6, the War Department, realizing the necessity of increasing the fire power of assault units, decided to adopt an automatic rifle and a board was appointed for that purpose. In response to a request of this board, the Browning Automatic Ride, model of IQI8, was invented in January 1917, by Mr. John M. Browning, of Ogden, Utah. - The primary mission of the automatic rifle is to increase the Ere power of the assault units-particularly the fire power of the squad. The development of this comparatively enormous fire power is dependent on training in two phases, first, marksmanship ability with the automatic rifle, second, the mechanical knowledge that enables the gunner to keep the automatic ride functioning under combat conditions.

G. :XNDERS-ON, Iizrtrzzvfor Greater stress is laid on the latter consideration at the Infantry School. In other words. regarding the automatic rifle as a gas engine, the student is taught how to operate and care for this engine before Marksmanship is considered. Some Marksmanship ability is presupposed as the student has already completed a course in Ride Marksmanship. Therefore, stress is laid on the mechanics of the weapon, the functioning of its parts, D the methods of care, preservation and inspection and, in general, on the knowledge essential to insuring the unfailing operation of the riHe. Marksmanship, to the extent that time permits, is taught by a course on the range, which begins with the 1000-inch range work and progresses through known distance practice on the "A" range, and Ends its final application under simulated combat conditions of the "B" range during the work in Musketry.

SI-iizifiilzizim, Iusfrucloz' Rirrig AND ML'sKi5'1'RY SECTION The purpose of the course in Rilie Marksmansliip at the Infantry School is first: To make instructors by following exactly 'the methods laid down in the Marlcsmanship Manual, and Second: To make good shots and give at least all junior officers an opportunity to fire the record course. During the four days devoted by all classes to the preparatory exercises, every phase of the Marksmanship Manual was carried out as thoroughly as possible, special attention being paid to organizing the work and to methods ot instruction. Each step is preceded by a lecture and a demonstration, after which the class itself actually carries out the work as it has been discussed and demonstrated. The student is impressed with the fact that the work in Rilie Marksmanship is so organized that exactly the same methods used at the School can be employed in handling either small bodies of men in organizations or the larger classes at summer training camps. Time did not permit the advanced class to tire the record course. The Company Officers' Class of two hundred and eighty-three students, and the National Guard and Reserve Officers' class of fifty-eight students Fired the regular qualification course and made a record never before equaled at this School, every single man in both classes qualifying.

Iiistrucfor BAYONET SECTION The bayonet typities the grim determination of the Infantryman to close with and over- come his enemy hand to hand. Hence. whether or not he actually encounters his adversary in the final stage of the assault, it is the bayonet, or the threat thereof, that constitutes the ultimate factor in every engagement. VVhen the Infantryman has been brought to such a point of confidence and determination lIis training with the bayonet' has been successful. The development of this spiiit is the prime object of bayonet training, To this end the offensive spirit is inculcated from the outset. Fire of all kinds paves the way to the final and decisive encounter at close range, where the Infantryman seizes the superiority of morale by boring in resolutely on his enemy. The teclmical details of bayonet fighting are few and simple-the spirit is of supreme importance and difhcult to obtain. The course in Musketry covers a period of about thirty hours and comprises the following subjects: Range estimation. target designation, the effect of ride fire, fire discipline and Ere control. Demonstrations and exercises are given on the ranges and in the Held to illustrate the practical application of the principles taught during conference. The course in Musketry follows the riHe Marksmanship course in which the student is taught to tire on black and white targets at known ranges. In the Musketry course he is taught to fire on indistinct field targets and areas at unknown ranges. Upon completion of the course in Musketry, the student is ready to enter upon train- ing in Applied Musketry as given by the first Section.

It is expected that all classes during the coming year be given the opportunity to Ere the Qualification Course. 1 ifglfilwzk' E L l K THE LADY OF THE LAKE L1 WJ EQW' W S? ZW .gf 4142!

HIE present llepartment of General Subjects is a consolidation of the original depart- ment of lthal name with the old lilepartmcut of Research. As now constituted it com- prises tiree sections: istory, liquitation and .'Xtbletics. The Athletic Section includes instruction in military calisthenies. apparatus. massed games. and also in baseball. football. volley ball. soccer, basket-ball and iii trgiqk and field sports. lt is not the purpose of this course to develop athletes but to so familiarize the students with each activity that they will be able to instruct their units in them. and encourage their tnen to participate in athletics and athletic contests. V XYliile the work is mainly practical. lectures and conferences are given in order that particular calisthenic exercises may be titled to the peculiar needs of the individual: that a general knowledge of the procedure and rules of rlitferent games and events mav be had to the end that the student may qualify as director or otlieial. i This section also provides a reasonable amount of supervised exercises for the student body whose days are occupied with school activities, at times, mainly indoors. Linder this section fall the athletic activities of the school. which in their qualitv and scope have assumed the proportions of those of a university. ' ' The Equitation Section conducts courses for all students in tai Stable Management. 'galil Care of Animals.1 tcl Care of .Xnimal Drawn Transportation and in Cdl Equitation. ie courses are mace as practical as possible. All lectures and conferences. whenever practicable. are conducted out of doors, where the practical application of the subject under discussion may be made. Eciuitation is limited to the fundamentals and no advanced work is attempted. There is no jumping and no cross country galloping. The objects sought in the First three divisions are to qualify the students to intelligently direct in this work and to standardize the methods throughout the Infantry: in the, last subdivision to teach proper bitting and saddling. a proper "handl' and "sean" and to enable the otiicer to perform mounted duty without unnecessary strain or injury to himself or mount. The Military History Section embraces the following: The Army of the United States, Psychology, Methods of Instruction, and Military History proper. The otiicer who would be truly a professional man must be something more than a worknian. To a knowledge of the tools he must add breadth. perspective and accurate and indlependent reasoning. He must also be able to present his conclusions readily, force- ful y and convincingly. The Officer of our Army today has important duties beyond and above the definite practice of his profession. He is called upon both in times of peace and war to deal with his fellow citizens in civil life. He is primarily charged lwitli their military education and training. He must be prepared not only to teach the cetails of his profession, but he must knbw the fundamental reasons that lie behind them and how to bring the civilian to a realization of their place and importance. It is the purpose of the military History section to help him reallize this two-fold result. A study of the Army of the United States presents the prob em-the Regular Army as the instructor of the body of our citizens. Psychology gives him a knowledge of the mental reactions and attitude of those with whom he must deal. Methods of Instruc- tion point the way to translate his knowledge into definite action, smoothly, completely, and adecuatel . Andlfinalliy. Military History, hand in hand with Military Art, develops a sense of nice discrimination, sound reasoning, and the ability to find the immutable principles of his profession hidden in the mass of prejudiced, inaccurate, incomplete alnld confiising dfetaili In Militar Art from the facts he reasons to the result. In Mi itary istory ie is ace at once with the effect itself. He must then seek for the reasons for the solution and the means employed, and determine the success or failure of their application. Thus by deduction in Military Art and induction in Military History he learns to recognize and apply the practical principles of technique and tactics no matter in what guise they appear. The vehicle for teaching military history here is the monograph. Subjects are so arranged as to permit the student to cover well a particular phase of military events. The student is given an opportunity to make proper sellection of iiiatjeiigtl, rcixiliginallpgeparationf and ersonal anal sis and criticism of the material ie ias asscm e . e ora e tvery o the iihonograph offers him practice in personally presenting the results of his work and by skill, clarity, enthusiasm and logic bringing others to see as he sees. And above all his work in the Military History Section awakens the student to the possibilities of professional education and pleasure to be found in the military library.

I-low we will look back over the years and think of the historic houses we have inhabited in Columbus. Those historic walls, dewed with age, resounded again, as they had before, to the martial tread of warriors. That same furniture, brought by Oglethorpe when he crossed the Upatoi was still in use, and many, many times has iti paid for itself in gold of the realm by being rented, in meagre quantities, to the officers of the Army. But to those strangers who had arrived for the first time in the fair precincts of Columbus, a still greater surprise awaited. The seat of mili- tary learning was located nine miles from the village, and between the two ran a prehistoric road. Over this washboard, the new arrivals bumped their way to the post, where on its bluff, high above the Upatoi, stood Benning! How we thrilled with the thought of the unwitting tenths which must even then have been concealed in the dust and underbrush, and which we should before long make our very own! Oh, Rapture! Oh, JOY! Reporting, we were laden with the implements of that Tenth Punic War upon which we were about to enter. Steel helmets, rifles, sketching cases, clip boards, compasses flensatic, prismatic, emphatic, erraticl of all known kinds and makes, field glasses, bayonets and last but not least, that badge of, labor yet to come, THE UNIONALL. Proceeding then under this dray load, we were shown to a locker room. Around the walls were nice little spaces just half large enough to hold the stuff we were charged with. This arranged, we reported to be photographed. What an inspiring moment it was! How we looked at the proofs and said to ourselves: "Some day this will be a famous picture, for it has me in it!" Historians will seeki it out and say: "Ah! there he is when he first gave promise of military greatnessfl The preliminaries over, we were conducted to an ancient stable which had served its former owners, as a dairy, where we were initiated into the mysteries of the school. How we tinglecl at the thought of those pioneers who had gone before us! How we secretly gloried in their sacrifices! How we felt rise in us a great admiration for those who had lived in the shacks which had served for quarters. lVc had but to look about us to see the palatial sets of quarters note used by the students and the garrison. lVe had but to look across the plain to see Biglerville in all the beauty of its gardens and well paved streets. The first obstacle met with in the course was known as hlilitary Topography. A chief instructor. assisted by a set of junior tormentors, threw at us scales. vertical equivalents, horizontal impostures, diagonal theories and other warped dimensions and unfamiliar phrases. But here was a background, the first' against which we could butt our heads in the search for tenths and our instructors made the most of their opportunities. Those glorious days could not last. A prearranged fate led us on to the use of Instruments and to Motor Transport. Time was flying. VVe were learning our profession. lVe were now the devoted slaves of the elusive tenth. Even then the tenth hounds had their noses to the ground and even then they followed on the trail with that cold-blooded search characteristic of a better cause and purpose. lvhat days we spent finding out whether the cook was a part of the C Tn, or whether he was with the B tk R lVagonl lVhat times we had wrangling among ourselves as to where the Cobbler should be posted! There spread out before us on the plain was the company. First it was an orderly array of nicely uniformed men each with a little sign on him and then a blast of the whistle sent them helter skelterg no nice straight lines, no nice distances, runners here, there and everywhere and no one to tell us the maximum and the minimum distances of the squigip from the scallop. Nor was this all. Hovering over our heads was the ominous Mono- graph. Descending to the lowest level of cruelty, she forced each of us to stand before long suffering mates and with a jumble of Words and figures soothe them into that land of dreams from which the interested representatives of the Inquisition could arouse them only by that kindly phrase "Five minutes more, Colonel!" No greater sentence Was ever framed except one, and that, "Are there any questions ?" But not even the menace of the ever-present monologue could sup- press the high spiritsi of the class as We passed, on, to the 37 MM. and its buddy, the light Trench Mortar. Here was the stove pipe- invention of a plumber, made into an instrument of torture, not to those poor souls Who Went to glory on the blast of one' of itsf devilish bombs, but to those speck- oids Who, in order to clean the ammunition for use failed first to open the box! Oh, Ignominyl Oh, Shame, Where is thy box lid? But brighter scenes were before us, for We were to hear of Methods of Instruction. We were to be taught how to teach! Ah! The antici- pation with which we looked forward to that day. Then seeing on the board before us the cryptic diagrams of how to do it and when and why, we listened and learned not, neither did we speak, but verily I say unto you, no exam like that ever got loose on an unsuspecting mob of tenth hounds before. Told to look over the situation, to estimate it and then to put the results of our estimation into the form of some questions for a prospective class to answer, we bore in mind the teaching given us and said: "Now for a chance to soak some other poor fish!'! But the humiliation of hav- ing our own papers handed back and being told to answer our own ques- tions was much too much, and we gave up the ghost. I-Iowever, bearing proudly the more or less honorable scars we had received so far, We marched out to the plain to learn the mysteries of Rifle- marksmanship trigger-squeeze rapid prone position. I-Iow Sandy McNab would have loved it, how he would have gloated over our neglect to put in all the cryptic signs required to fill up all the empty spaces of our target record book! And then the pistol! Ah, to think that some of us should have faced half right when we should have faced half left: to think that some of us should have so far forgotten our left arms as to be1 unconscious of them! What could be more perfect than the untrained position in which the ele- ments of the body not engaged had been forgotten! But We were to be recompensed. For looming large on the horizon was the Arm Blanc-the Bayonet. Can we ever forget how we stood and how our teeth chattered as we learned that we hadi a deadly weapon in our hands, but that we: were always at a disadvantage when we had it? No, we cannot forget! I say it! Not long after this, as we were grouped outside our lecture hall, some wag was telling the story of the countryman who watched the first automobile he had ever seen go rushing past his house about seventy-five miles an hour, and in a few minutes there also went by the motor cycle cop, going about eighty miles an hour, and then the countryman turned to his Wife and said: "Gosh, Maw, I didn't know the dummed things had colts !" Just then a familiar voice called, HFALL IN!" We went into the Lecture Hall and there on the platform, to lend that atmosphere so necessary to proper methods of instruction, was the colt of a machine gun, the Auto- matic Rifie, and we understood just what that countryman felt! The instructor informed us that this was a great weapon and that it could be dismounted with nothing but absent treatment. But there remained yet other weapons of our trade to be studied. Grenades and explosives. lurked in the dense grass far out over the plain and in the drizzle we learned that one fuse is rough and red' and another fuse is rougher and redder. Also, we learned that' the best way to handle grenades is to stand about three hundred yards from the point where they are being thrown by hardy soldiers of our brave army, while duds are thrown by vigorous young lieutenants from positions entirely unknown to hurlers of the baseball, the discus and the sixteen-pound hammer. Refreshed by the Christmas holidays, we approached the hrlusketry course with open minds. XVe discovered that in war no self-respecting enemy will ever be seen, for in so doing he breaks the rules: we learned that there is no sense in teaching men anything other than to shoot up the atmosphere and hope that the enemy will be where the bullet falls. Of course, we must always be careful to give the range, for that is where the large number 3 stands on the square frame and if we should give it at a place beyond the io, we would have to stop the war. Then we had care- fully to pick out a church steeple, as that was a reference pointy if there wasn't a church steeple, you sent a note to the enemy and asked him please to change his present place to one where there was a church steeple so we could go on with the war. Wye, of course, would promise him to shut our eyes while he moved so we could have the fun of guessing all over again where he was. Thus having carried out the old adage, 'fCarpenter, know thy toolsf' we, with our intimate knowledge of tenths and a scattering knowledge of the aforementioned tools, approached the shop in which our knowledge was to' be put to the test. The Tactical Section took us in. hand. Intro- duced to the mechanics of order writing, we distinguished ourselves by injecting an element into the course known as "fighting the problemfl What was the mere mechanics of order writing to us, so long as we could find loud and vociferous fault with problems as stated? What did we care that the information paragraph came first provided we found in the situation something which we thought did not belong there? We spent months in the solution of thousands of problems and when the time for Brigade Nlaneuvers finally rolled around, we came to under- stand that the course was nearly over. We maneuvered, or thought we did, for three weeks,, and then came the Big Day when we unblushingly accepted our diplomas as a reward for nine. long months of tenth hunting. Again, we had our passports vised, and bidding farewell to the Amer- ican Consul, and his attractive family in Columbus, we took the first train for the dear old United States, the land of summer training camps. In those camps, we purpose to do our level best to disseminate the useful mili- tary knowledge we have gained here, knowing full well, that whatever success may crown our efforts is due not to us, but to the Infantry School.

IIUMFANY UFFIEEH5 ELA55 CLASS HISTORY " N the peaceful atmosphere of a permanent post there once lived a J company olhcer in the lnfantry of the United States Army. He Wore two bars and considered himself something of a captain, could interpret and instruct 'Lsquads right" after a fashion and had replied satis- factorily when called upon to explain why only 79 per cent. of the men in his company had qualified on the range. He could do other things equally well and his colonel gave him a comfortable margin on his efiiciency report. In fact, everything considered, he was contented and almost happy. And then he went to Benning! He was in the company officers' class of 1922-23. He began to learn, and learn, and learn, and learn He learned not to hurry through things but to be on time. He learned that there are few things that are new in the world and none at all in riHe shooting, but that there are many and varied alibis on the range and that methods of organization can effect wonders. He learned that while the ability to exe- cute a finesse at bridge is valuable in its way, it is not considered an asset in learning to hold a pistol. And after awhile he learned that units are more to be desired than great riches. As the course progressed even Biblical history was made clearer. Intent on mastering the intricacies of l. D. R., and assured that all the instructors spoke the language of the- director, he suddenly realized some of the difficulties that beset the builders of the Tower of Babel. But he was patient and although often moved to softly modulated profanity, he learned to command himself up and down the drill ground with equal facility, whether considering himself a squad or a regiment. He almost reached the point where he could execute "right shoulder arms" while wearing a wide-brimmed Stetson. In the midst of his progress he, suddenly found that the braid on his overcoat sleeve had a superfluous strand, that he could get along with half the silver he had been bearing bravely 'on his shoulder for a number of years, and that in fact he was only about half the captain he once had con- sidered himself. To add to his discomliture he faced the prospect of get- ting along with less quarters and ration allowances, and was comforted not at all hy the fact that in his abstraction he had failed to answer a question on "exam." that had a value of two units. He plodded wearily to his daily task. He stumbled over contour lines and lost himself in a maze of shots for critical points. He labored at his road sketch until his tongue hung out and then failed to put in the name of the Lipatoi and the railroad that "operates" between Benning and Columbus. Likewise he failed thoroughly to enjoy his lunch if he ate any at all. Upon turning in his sketch at the end of the period allotted he was sure of little beyond the fact that the instructor was certain to learn from it that Benning has' a very damp climate and muddy roads. About this time he became acquainted with his horse. He had been introduced to horses, but had never been placed on such intimate terms with one. It might he said that relationship between horse and oiiicer were reduced at once to the informal. There were no secrets between them. He was let into the secrets of horse manicuring and massaging, and learned that no matter how far away or in what direction you might be the horse had a near side which was constant. And then he began to ride his horse. He began gently, but that could not last. The more he rode the less gentle it became until there were times when he greatly desired to get a compass bearing to make sure that he Was coming down on the same saddle from which he started his ascen- sion. But he learned to ride. At least the instructor said he did, although he had grave doubts about the thing even unto the end. In spite of the difficulties of getting along Without troop responsibili- ties he made progress. There were numerous occasions when he found that his indorsements to the school secretary were returned as unsatisfac- tory, but still he made progress. This progress Went on steadily, even against such a handicap as appearing at formation dressed in a raincoat when the overcoat should have been Worn. He learned the automatic riileg he learned the machine gun tor at least some of itjg he learned to make a road sketch on horsebackq he learned to wield the bayonet with a grunt and often an imprecationg he learned to throw grenades in a great many different Ways, some of them approvedg he learned to chin himself at least once on the horizontal bar and that there are methods of cleaning a rope Without Washing itg he learned to pass the buck because it is the easiest piece of apparatus in 'gthe chamber of horrorsng he learned to Hsnoop and snipe" and that scouting and patrolling is as much an art as a scienceg he learned that tactics is about half of a young oFficer's life and that more units can be dropped there than ever were dreamed of in anybody's philosophyg and he learned other things and continued to learn. And he learned in the end, after he had finished the course, that he was a Wiser and better oiiicer. V'T. I I P r N 1 1 5 Y f N. i 5 ,.

On these uniforms could he observed the insignia of nearly every state in the Union. They came from Blaine and California, North Dakota and Texas and all points between, to learn how the army was being run and to do their part in the general schente of National defense. Even far off Porto Rico and Hawaii had their representatives there. Alircrst befr re they realized they were at the Infantry School, they had been equipped with all the tools of their trade, including rifles, belts, and bayonets, tin hats, pistols, sketching kits, clip boards, and last but far from least, two beautiful suits of unionalls, one dainty blue, and the other sober brown. It later developed that the blue was for rainy months, and the brown fo'r the wet. The sketching equipment was the first to get a workout, and the puzzled brains of the students were deluged with such terms as: 'fAlidade, protractor, grid lines, azimuth, contour, clinometer and co-ordinatesf' However, it was but a very short time before they were discussing these mysterious articles as though they had known them all their lives. Before Armistice Day rolled around, we were well acquainted with Posse Comitatus, the State vs. Peabody and Habeas Corpus, who grouped themselves under the heading, Uhlartial Law and Riot Duty." Then there was Estimate of the Situation with the Reds and the Blues at their everlasting war over the Upatoi, each battalion being commanded by Lt. Col. B. There probably is no one in the history of the world who has had more influence over the lives of any body of men than Lt. Col. B. has had over ours. Toward the end of November, we came to the parting of the ways. The machine gunners went one way and the riflemen the other, never to meet except for the first half hour each trorning. when they armed themselves with the rifle, belt and bayonet and went forth to do battle with the I. D. R. and pamphlet No. 420-SO. YVhen last heard from, the pamphlets were leading by a comfortable margin. The riflemen now donned the blue L1I1lfO1'1'D of the laborer and drew triangles and sque-e-ezed that trigger for a solid month, while the machine gunners struggled through the intricacies of direct and indirect fire, angles of departure, combined sights, T. O. G., Q. E. and points B, D, and A. At this time the riflemen seemed to have the edge, for numerous portly officers were seen totin' Cthat's Georgian languageb heavy tripods and water jackets hither and yon on the post. , Later, however, the order was reversed, for While the machine gunners were having it easy with such simple weapons as the 37 lXfTlX'I. and the Stokes Trench hffortar, the riflemen were developing sore arms throwing little empty grenades and double timing all over the reservation with bayonets fixed on rifles at the high port, jumping over, into and cut of trenches, over barbed Wire, climbing ten-foot walls, at the same time killing an army of imaginary foes. Some of the incidents of this period will be always remembered by the members of the class. For instance, there was the machine gunner that set his sights but failed to elevate his gun, and then could not understand why he coulcln't get on his target. Then there was the young gentleman who, in automatic rifle rapid fire practice. loaded his piece with a magazine full of immediate action cartridges and spent half the day reducing stoppages. K llusketry, too, was the cause of several amusing happenings. One ofhcer, in a tire superiority problem, insisted upon crossing the line of lire of two or three ritles and an automatic ritle, but strange to say, he survived, although there was a sign of great activity about the ambulance on duty at the range. The one great fact that stands out above all others is that T. N. T. is the greatest of all explosives. although none of the grenades used for instruction purposes was loaded with it. Then the bayonet, small, and weighing but little, is a mighty agent when on the rille of the soldier. The only drawback to this estimable weapon is that all bayonet training is done at the double. lfach day the ollicers of the bayonet class could be seen dragging their weary feet toward their quarters, talking to themselves. An eavesdropper would have heard them say: "XVell, there is nine hours gone, only eleven more to go." All members of the class will long remember the i'Contour Special," which earned its name by the difiiculty with which it climbed the numerous contours on the reservation. Then as the course drew near its conclusion, we again met our old friend, Lt. Col. B., who once more assumed command of the Blue forces which were still at war with the Reds across the Upatoi. It appeared that we had been brought to the school to assist the instructors, who never seemed to know what to do. Day after day, we were handed little mimeographed slips of paper with something on them that puzzled the instructors. The members of the class, being always willing to help, would read them carefully and down near the bottom would find the words for which they were looking, which invariably were: "Required-Your action," It was really Lt. Col. Bfs problem, but that never stood in the way of these gentlemen, who gladly plunged into' the spirit of the thing and helped poor old Lt. Col. B. out of his difficulty. On January 31, 1923, the class graduated, leaving Posse Comitatus, Az E. llduth, Lt. Col. B. and their companions to the tender mercies of future students. It was a good war While it lasted, and many friendships were formed that will last for years. VVho is there of the class of 1922-1923 that will ever forget: Easley's silvery tenor ringing out in the song of his own composition: "Drill and Command?" Hopf and the ten-foot ladder always in evidence upon his chest? The sweet, lilting, haunting melodies with which Van Horn used to entertain on his combination mouth organ and victrola? The football teams that were organized in the class but never played a game? The little one-eyed purp, Clara, that early adopted the rifle section, following them wherever they went, and chasing all tresspassers off the reservation. Calculator, one of the institutions of the Infantry School? The dog with thousands of friends? The million other dogs? The mad rush when the billeting oFlice announced that quarters in the frame buildings were available for some of the officers? How hard it was to End the orderly when the bath house was cold and there was no' hot water for bathing? , The vast stretch of undulating prairie that reached from Biglerville to the instruc- tion area, and how glad we were to be picked up by some more fortunate person with an automobile? The fine party given to our class by the members of the Advanced Class? The mess hall at Biglerville where they never served goldfish? The gang around the bulletin board when someone discovered that the standings of an examination were posted? The feeling of gloom that descended over the camp when the Comptroller an- nounced his famous decision regarding rental allowance for the officers with de- pendents? The unofficial class in equitation with Hotspur h'IcGowan as one of the ring- leaders? The Q. BI. Sales Store that was to open when we were in classes and closed promptly when we were off duty? The crickets that ate up so many a nice uniform and ran away with a coat belonging to Virginia Jones? The other cricket that was not on the reservation? Y How promptly some of the lieutenants doubled their bars when they received notice of promotion? The Kiwanis party with its lpossum and ,taters and darkey songs? How the seventh squad of the rifle section continually quarreled? The lockers in which we were expected to store our equipment, but which would hold just about half of what we were issued? And how the sketching kit had to be left outside, because there was no room for it? That famous saying in the midst of a conference: "Ten minute break?,' That other one: "Are there any questions ?" How sleepy everyone was during the hrst conference after lunch? How Singletary would pick up duds and try to take them apart, to the joy of his neighbors? How the lectures were called K'ConferencesH to save the dignity of the student? How the sirens of the fire department would scream in the night? Our old friend the stretch, that gave us poise to the tune of f'One-chew, One- chew?" ' President Brovvn's bear hunt at Christmas time? The parade in which we "lX'Iarched like VVest Point Cadets ?,' The little pink slips that invited us to call on the Assistant Commandant? How Howard asked questions when on terrain exercise? 41:3 'A 'I I i I W l 1 L 1 F w E fy R 1 f X. xi ll- -1 i 2 K I v i w ,, i i v l First Liezzlwzazzt WHITMAN W. ADAFMS l1if1'S51f5.s'ffD pi N. G.

HANNAH, Infmztry Chief of Athletics-1922-23. Head Coach Baseball-1922-23. ATHLETICS HE Infantry School occupies a unique place in army athletics. It is the only service school or post where a collegiate program is carried on in all the major sports. ln View of the great amount of splendid athletic ma- terial contained in the student classes which annually re- ported it was realized three years ago what an important part competitive athletics with the various Southern uni- versities and colleges would pay in the community life of Fort Benning and how close such a program would bring the Infantry to those with whom our teams came in contact. Infantry School Representatives, therefore, in 1920, sought entrance in the Southern In- tercollegiate Athletic Association, W IIILIKVRX then the largest and most powerful i ' lflf-ri'1'1h' IIl'I.XD CILXVII 'J organization in the South. The In- 1""'r"1'm"f'-lime CAPT. S. F. GRISWOLD, INFANTRY I-Imam COACH BASKET-BALL-1923 fantry School was readily accepted as a suitable com- petitor and members urged to open relations with us. Qui' overtures met instant response until now there is hardly a Southern institution with Whom the In- fantry School teams have not competed in one of the major sports. The Infantry School has become known throughout the South and its oflicers and men have been brought into close touch with the communities where our teams have played and particularly With the student bodies of the colleges who Will furnish the leaders of tomorrow. Altogether the teams of the Infantry School have made very commendable records during the last three years. Despite handicaps and hardships the teams have given the best that was in them and have exemplified the infantry spirit of never quitting. The possibilities are unlimited and the athletic teams of the Infantry School will continue to be a credit to the great service which they repre- sent. 1'5' gag fi? l N I llfl ff i ff Thi' Yllf tell?

They took the field clad in track togs in an effort to combat the fiery tropical sun which burned from the clear skies of Georgia. Condition was the paramount object of the Infantry coaches, and for the Hrst few Weeks the Doughboys were kept busy getting legs, backs, arms and Wind into shape and reducing convex Waist lines. Every effort was directed to develop a team which would be able to go the limit every second and the full sixty minutes of the grid game. With the arrival of the student classes about the middle of September the size of the squad gradually grew until some sixty-five men Were daily reporting for practice. Captain Milburn, head coach, arrived from Platts- burg and took charge of the Workouts assisted by Captains Weems and Legge, line coaches, and later by Captain Lambert in the backheld. There Was a unity of purpose and enthusiastic in- terest Which had not been present the year before. Various methods of play acquired under various coaches and Well drilled into the heads of the individ- ual players were submerged to suit the methods which the Infantry coaches adopted and this Was done With a cheerfulness that was splendid. lNfIature men sought to bring back the days of youth and to overcome the effect of years in an effort to place a Winning Infantry varsity in the field. Stud- ents and permanent personnel ungrudgingly made sac- rifices of time and energy. Bit by bit condition came, plays Were acquired and individuals molded into a team. With games With four major elevens the Infantry faced the hardest schedule in its history and for that matter in the en- CAPTMN LEGGE ' - END COACH, 1922 tue South' The team as a Whole was lighter than in 1921 but it was more evenly balanced. A splendid lot of first line and reserve material gradually de- veloped. This was the situation on September 3oth when the Infantry played its opening game with Piedmont College. Qutweighed and outplayed by the strong Blue offense, the lighter collegians were whitewashed by a 54 to o score. An attendance of three thousand established a record for an opening game. True to custom, Coach Milburn used the entire squad and it natur- ally follows that a great many names may be mentioned as contributing to the day's success. Fay Smith and Mellon were the outstanding stars and principal ground gainers. These two backs dashed for long gains about the op- posing ends time and time again, aided by perfectly timed interference. Chapman handled the signal position with splendid headwork and a coolness and precision which did much to make the victory possible. Kin- man, Henry, Lehman, Sebukaty, and Zellars were other prominent back- field stars while hfIacNab, Peckinpaugh, Coates, Gee and Yon took honors in the line. The Infantry showed a varied offense combining a fast end attack with the aerial game and hard line plunging. Seven out of twelve passes were completed and two of these went for touchdowns. The Infantry line was so aggressive that Piedmont failed to make a first down. The game was unusually free from the customary first game blunders and fumbles, and the Infantry did not once ,- fglfa lose the ball on fumbles. Gratified with this showing the Infantry was pre- ...gg pared for the next conflict with Wofford College of fir . - 1 , f,- fy, in , ' ,. .,,'....f, Spartanburg. On the following Saturday these two ,513 '4g:51L,3-, 1 elevens met at the local Driving Park and again the . r V ,. . , Max ,. .T Infantry won by a score of I2 to o. fi fy gm' 6, hril ,7,,,... I ay The score would have been larger but that a ver- . A itable cloudburst gave the light Woffordians decided LZ- assistance. Time and time again the Blue backs of the Infantry would carry the ball to the opposing goal line and then would come the inevitable fumblej Ball and field were slippery and every fumble was excus- able. Line plunging Was the order of the day inter- spersed with a few end runsg any semblance of for- ward passing was impossible. CAPTAIN Wwmrs, LINE COACH, 1922 Chapman and lVlellon did most of the line smashing and time and time again tore big gaps in the Terrier defenses. Sebukaty and Smith also contributed largely to the ground gaining. Adams, l'eekinpaugh, Gee, and Bartow loomed up as the best choice of the lincmen. Due to the wet lield play was delayed time and time again and the lnlantry line could not make its full power felt. The University of Tennessee was the next eleven to face the Infantry and the Volunteers brought the strongest team they have had in years. The game proved an acid test and although the lnfantry lost by a I5 to o score the battle proved that the team had plenty of power to hold the husky Volunteers to such a small tally. The lnliantry opened with a rush and carried the ball down the lield on successive plays to the very shadow of Tennessee's goal. Here came a costly fumble, Tennessee recovered, and the best scoring opportun- ity ol' the afternoon vanished. Clayton and Campbell led a dazzling offense which gave the Volun- teers their lirst touchdown. A hidden ball play and delayed buck, coupled with passes from Campbell to Clayton, were responsible for most of the gains. The linal touchdown was the result of poor punting by the In- lantry. Gayle and Coates played spectacular games and time and time again smothered the Volunteer llank attacks. Mellon did most of the ground gaining while Chapman played a strong game at the start but weakened in the latter stages. Yon was the best choice of the lnliantry mid-line and did some brilliant tackling. BLUE T195 'N - 54' tm Mas: J .

The former gained most ground while Chapman did some brilliant tackling. Peckinpaugh and Gee carried off line honors. The Infantry felt the strain of the three hard battles with Tennessee, Tulane, and Auburn, and the squad was weakened by injuries. These contributed in no small degree to our defeats by Carson and Newman and Oglethorpe. The Baptists downed the Infantry to the tune of 25 to O while the Stormy Petrels claimed the long end of a I4 to 3 score. It was Rogerls toe that gave us our only score when he booted a perfect field goal from an almost impossible angle. These two games proved to be the last losses, for the team came back with great power and finished the season with an unbroken series of victories. The first to fall were the lVIarines from Paris Island, and with this victory came the Inter-Service Championship of the South. The Infantry won by a I5 to O score and in Winning put forth one of its best fights of the year. This game, like many others, was Won by the air route. Twice in the first half the ball was carried to the lVIarines one yard line but lost on downs there. In the third half the Infantry took to the air and both touchdowns came as a result of an unbroken series of passes. Chapman, Lambert, Smith, Milburn, Kinman, Rogers, and Zellars gave spectacular exhibitions in the backfield. Adams, Gayle, Yon, Ellis, and Bartow upheld honors in the line. The Infantry employed a "pony backfieldn for the first time in this game and with great success.

They were all played abroad and completed the road schedule. The Tulane-Infantry game was a big feature of thc- American Legion National Convention ai New Urleans. Aside from a defeat it proved to be the most serious blow of the entire season for bfellon, captain and star fullback, and Coates, game little end, went out with severe injuries. Mellon sustained a broken leg and Coates a broken foot. Mellon was out of the game for the rest of the season. A torrid sun and sandy field played havoc at Tulane, but in spite of this the Infantry gained more yardage and completed three forward passes to one for Tulane. It was the Infantry's inability to score at crucial moments, coupled with brilliant work and spectacular dashes by Alfred, Brown, and hlaloney for Tulane, that gave Tulane the victory by a score of I8 to o. For the Infantry Milburn, Chapman, Adams, Coates, and Peckinpaugh were bright lights. The annual battle with the Auburn Tiger came the following Satur- day. VVith Nlellon and Coates out and facing the most powerful eleven the Tigers have had in five years the Infantry lost a 30 to o game. Fast runs around the Infantry flanks were responsible for most of the Tiger gains and Shirey and Scott were the outstanding choices of the opposing backfield. The Infantry opened with a splendid air attack and carried the ball straight down the field in the third quarter but the Auburn forwards held on their own seven yard line. The Infantry completed exactly twice as many passes as did the Tigers. 45' 1 I ego?"

A splendid tt-am played a hard schedule I which brought them face to face with some of the strong- est college lives in the United States. Decidedly the hardest schedule was the lvestern Conference trip part of January. It was the hrst time a Southern quint had ever invaded the floors of the Big Ten I and may be School. - 4 .L llc CAPT. VEVIA. The names of Cranston, Johnson, Vevia, lVIcQuarrie, Smith, Whittemore, lVIcCasky, Rundell, will be long remem- ber as the bright lights of this splendid team. Inspired with the successes of last year the Infantry un- dertook another strong schedule for IQ22-23. With the ex- ception of the Conference trip practically all of the big games of the preceding year were repeated and a few additional ones scheduled. taken as a decided compliment to the Infantry V ' Twenty-six games were played and the In- I fantry won eighteen. But one Southern Col- lflgdlbl 4' I E f lege defeated the Infantry and this honor went A e to Georgia Tech. Likewise with but one ex- cfm-. 1s11Lr..mb ception the Infantry had an unbroken series of victories on its home court. Two of the hardest and most brilliantly fought games of the year were played with the Columbus NY." Each team scored one victory by the narrowest margins and al- though a third game was discussed to decide the tie it was never played. . .Q CAPT.

A second vic- I - tory came three nights later when Gordon Institute Was smothered under a 52 to 22 score. These two games served to round out the preliminary season and bring the team to a satisfactory state of develop- S ment. The collegiate season was formally opened when cf M Auburn invaded the Infantry floor. su cam. LIPPINCOTT the entire season. At the end of the regular halves the score was tied 32 to 32 and an extra five minute period was played. The Infantry forged ahead bit by bit and held such a tight defense that the Tigers could not score. The final result read Infantry 39-Auburn 32. Activities, other than a daily practice for those mem- bers of the squad who were not on leave, were suspended during the Christmas holidays and the New Year opened with the University of Georgia as opponents. ' Georgia had a splendid team and, though not as fully developed as the Infantry, put up a brilliant fight. The Blue five hnally nosed out the Bulldogs 25 to I7 but it was a hght all the way. ' This battle proved to be one of the most exciting of E 'ai , 21 fag? g J- f i ff ' ff Fff iff' ...Hs CAPT. BRAND Then followed the only long road trip of the season and an assortment of games which proved disastrous to the percentage column. The Infantry met many of the South's best lives in rapid succession and as a result dropped thr- F majority of the contests. The fast live of the Atlanta Athletic Club administered the first defeat of the season, romping to a 28 to I3 win. The big Atlanta Hoor proved a serious handicap to our team play. The University of Chat- f tanooga proved the next stumbling block and defeated the Infantry by the considerable a 1 - , . , . l margin of 33 to 19. The playing of Redd, if Q, all Southern center, was a big factor in the I.1IiI'T. Ituelc Moccasin victory. The third game was dropped to Spartanburg Y. INT. C.

But three days later thc Infantry romped to a 23 to I7 Win over the brilliant five from Albany f'Y"g a victory unexpected by many because the Albanians were known to have one of the best teams in the South. A few days later, however, the Infantry lost a close one when the Birmingham Athletic Club basketeers claimed a 33 to 25 game. The first of two classics with the Columbus "Y" then folloWed-al- ways the biggest cards of the home schedule. The Infantry Won the Hrst in easy fashion by the considerable margin of 36 to 22 but Columbus came back in the second game With vengeance and brilliant playing. The result 'vas the most colorful battle of the season. The Infantry Won by one slim point, 32 to 31, but victory came in the last ten seconds of an extra Hve minute period. sg: INPHNTQY 25 ptaawv y 17 Auburn defeated us in a return Q game at Auburn taking the long end of 2 JC?

The percentage was WW' www 31 evened a few nights later when the Infantry downed the Piedmont College eagers on the home court, claiming the victory by the score of 28 to 19. A defeat by Carson and Newman then followed. The Infantry dis- played a ragged front this night and lacked the usual teamwork. Passing and goal shooting were wild and the entire defense ragged. Then the blacon HY" live came over for their annual battle and the Infantry put forth a beautiful game. blacon was snowed under by the wide margin of 34 to II in a game replete with splendid playing by our entire team. The season will formally close with Albany HY." The South Georg- ians are scheduled for a return engagement on their floor and this game is certain to be a hotly contested one. ff' QLUMBU5 Y 22 Although it did not win as many games as the Hve of the preceding year the Varsity of 1922-23 faced stronger opponents in many instances. Basketball has received a great impetus in the South during the last sev- eral years and each year sees stronger lives put in the field by the various colleges. A large majority of schools with Whom the Infantry plays an- nual games had the strongest teams in their history this season. To Coach Griswold and the various players goes credit for the good Work accomplished and the victories achieved. Vevia and lVIillard at forwardg Lippincott, Whittemo1'e, and Fay Smith, acting captain, at guardg and Brand at center are deserving of special mention for brilliant playing but the entire squad merits commendation for the splendid spirit which it displayed at all times. af3 MM.

Twelve veterans 2 , il", ' j" ' it 9 ' xr" and hfty three new men were pres- u i D ent and it was the biggest turnout Q u p 1 , 1 in the history of the School. En- thusiasm ran high and prospects were bright. Practice went along splendidly for the first ten days and then the weather man frowned upon the Blue. A bitter cold spell covered the erstwhile sunny south and played havoc with the daily workouts. To make matters worse it began to rain and for a week the big squad nursed stiff arms and hoped for a rise in the mercury and an outburst of sunshine. This delay caused a severe setback in the training and when seasonable weather arrived only a few days intervened before the op ening series with Auburn. How- ever the Infantrymen had pro- gressed very gratifyingly and al- though suffering from a scarcity of pitching material gave promise of developing a very strong club. This promise was borne out in the first Auburn game, a beautifully played affair which proved a pitcherls duel between Davis for the Infantry and lVIoulton, the Tiger ace. Auburn Won I to o but the Infantry came back the next day and evened the series. jones, one of the best Infantry slabsters, held the Tigers to seven scattered hits while the Blue pounded two Plainsmen pitchers for a total of eleven hits and bunched these so 1 if C7 51, well that they defeated Auburn by f..-f'tx N the wide margin of IO to 3. fw,,"'w,7Q Lwfxff-Xxx Georgia came next when we 1 f opened the Bulldog season at Ath- iig -1- in ens. In the first game Davis and Pantone, the Georgia star, fought out a brilliant ten inning twirlers' battle which finally went to Georgia by a score of 5 to 4. Davis pitched a wonderful game under most ad- verse weather conditions and with the spectators wearing overcoats to shut out the chilly blasts. The second game proved a replica of the first as far as close- w ' I U en ness was concerned. Jones and Sale, a newcomer to the Bulldog ranks, pitched beautiful games and the battle wound up in a I to I tie. The game was called at the end of the ninth in order to allow the Infantry to make train connections.

Half the team, including Jones and Davis, two of our pitching mainstays, carried lame arms for several weeks as a result of the wintry weather. The home season formally opened with Auburn on lVIarch 24th. As in the previous series the 'Tigers romped to a victory in the first game taking a rather one sided contest by the tune of S to o. The Infantry pitchers were hit hard for a total of fourteen hits, a decided factor in the Auburn Victory. But it was a different story the next day. Finnessey went on the mound for the Blue and pitched us into a brilliant 8 to 4 victory. lVIoulton, Auburn's pride, was hit when hits meant runs, and Tiger errors were costly. Oglethorpe came as the next home card. Rain prevented the first game so a double header was booked for the following day. The twin bill was split, the Infantry taking the first game 5 to 4 and the Petrels the second 4 to 1. Bill fzfssiiliiilie ggi' fix, Lee made his debut and Won for 1 the Infantry in the first battle While Finnessey and Davis were used against the Atlantans in the second. Florida came next and the 'Gators brought up the best team they have ever put in the field. I-Iartmann and Dixon, Florida aces, hurled their teams to victory in both games, the Infantry dropping the first 9 to 3 and losing the second to the Floridians 5 to 4 after a very exciting ten inning engagement. The Infantry pitchers had been Worked overtime and the shortage of reserve material was badly felt. Under the servere strain none of the Infantry slabmen Were at their best and princi- pally as a result of this unavoidable Weakness the next two series were dropped to Michigan and Mercer. The Wolve1'ines took the first game by hard fighting in the final innings after the In- fantry had accumulated a seemingly safe lead. The Infantry outhit and outfielded the Mich- igan team in this game but When Yost's men did hit the bases were occupied and the game was lost by a 9 to 8 score. The second game was easy for the visitors. Two Infantry pitchers were hit hard While We accumulated the big total of six errors. Eleven of Yost's men had crossed the rubber when the curtain went down and the Infantry had been blanked. The Infantry again fielded raggedly in the Mercer games and this, coupled with hard hitting on the part of the Baptists and superb pitching by Tige Stone, Thompson and Ryals, opposing slabsters, gave the Mercerites both games II to I and 6 to 4. A decided reversal of form came in the Alabama series. The Infantry made a clean sweep against the Crimson Tide. Davis held the Tuscaloosa lads to a few scattered hits while we took the long end of a 7 to I tally in the first game, and Lee scored a victory the following day when the In fantry won a ' slugging match by the big score of I3 to 7. ' Batting had improved in the Alabama series and the or T ..-4 fielding was much better, particularly in the infield. ln- -. L fantry twirlvrs were getting rid of sore arms acquired early V I in the season and were working with more stuff on the ball. ' As a result the Infantry again scored a victory the fol- lowing week when the North Georgia Aggies were defeated in a close and exciting game. The visitors staged a great 1 rally in the last two frames but were nose-d out by the close "-"""' l""'X'f-'N g V gg margin of 6 to 5. Rose and Davis did the pitching for provement. us in this game and the entire team showed marked im- The Aggies evened matters the next day when they staged an eighth inning comeback and won 9 to 8. The Infantry held a four run lead up to this time but the visitors went wild and put over four runs in the eighth and won the game when they pushed over another in the ninth. The game was featured by y hard hitting by both teams when hits meant runs. Georgia came down for a return series the follow- C""'e'Nm' IIUNM ing week and proved a powerful dose. The Bulldogs were running on high, and hard hitting coupled with splendid pitching by Thomas, Dekle and Pantone gave them both games, I4 to 2 and ro to 3. The Infantry was held to five scattered hits in the first game and six in the second.

Vanderbilt came first and the Infantry won the first of the two annual games in Nash- ville. Davis and Richardson engaged in a pitching duel and the former claimed a shade the better of the argument. The game was close throughout but the Infantry batted in the winning run in the eighth. Score: 6 to 5.

Our defeats of the year may be largely attributed to a scarcity of reserve pitching material and to the fact that most of our first string twirl- ers were handicapped by the cold weather. Even so, we broke slightly less than even and defeated some of the best teams in the South. Cvreat credit is due our Coaches, Colonel Hannah and Captain Cunn- ingham, for their great interest in the team and for the unfailing energy which they displayed throughout the season. The entire squad is deserving of the highest commendation for their unwavering loyalty under most dis- heartening circumstances. The schedule for this year shows that the Infantry will meet the best college nines in the South. Twenty home games are scheduled and road trips will carry us away for eight additional battles. Seventy-five candidates have reported for practice and the roster in- cludes the best material ever on a Held at Benning. First workouts have been unusually gratifying and we are sure to have a strong team this year. Pitching prospects are unusually bright. Davis, Jones and Finnessey, veterans of last yearihave returned, and this list is supplemented by eight or nine other slabsters of splendid promise. Perwein and Hanson, mem- bers ofthe IQZI team, are back and other promising new material includes McNutt, Hanna, Hutchinson, Duff, Parks, Swantic and Parris. It is hoped that Mellon, ex-Cincinnati Red receiver, will recover from a severe injury acquired in the Tulane football game in time to get into harness. It was with great regret that We parted with the services of Larry Cobb, two years a first string catcher, who was ordered away after the first Week of practice. Four of last season's infielders are again in uniform-Kent Nelson on the first sack, George Honnen on second, and Lindsey and Cooper at third. The new material is abundant with fine infield talent and includes a roster too numerous to mention. Some twenty candidates are arriving for positions in the outfield and included in these are Kgelstrom and Smith who filled two garden berths last season. The squad has an unusually heavy assortment of good hitters. Colonel Hannah is again in charge of the Doughboy destinies, and a most successful season is anticipated. z, For r is ali kg..

PHYSICAL THAININE PHYSICAL TRAINING ' I NIFORM and systematic instruc- tion in athletics and physical training has been given student ofiicers in order that they be able to serve as officials, assist in the develop- ment of teams, supervise physical train- ing, and encourage athletics in the or- ganizations Which they may hereafter command. A great deal of incidental value has been derived by the oliicers themselves although no effort has been made in the time available to develop athletes. The work during the past year has been handicapped by the lack of an indoor gymnasium. But future classes Will have the benefit of the new gymnasium, equipped with shower baths and dressing rooms and large enough to accommodate six hundred people in calisthenics at one time.

Stress has been laid on rules, organization of teams and tournaments, and prep- aration of playing fields. The place I I A ' which each game has in the scheme of l , , p military physical development has been pointed out. 3 , Disciplinary gymnastics has been ..Jlg,,.4.:rr,, fig covered by lectures on aims and purposes of this kind of Physical train- ing, the benefits and results to be ex- 1 pected from formal and informal ' classes of exercises both from the 5 viewpoint of the individual soldier and of the service. Teaching methods ap- plicable to this sort of training have been emphasized. Calisthenics has covered exercises for the recruit and for the trained soldier, with reasons for the application of each set of exercises to each class to the end that the soldier and the service may get the most bene- ficial results from intelligently directed instruction. No effort has been made to teach intricate evolutions or Ustuntsll on the apparatus. lnstruction has been confined to activities most applicable to the military service and within the soldier's reach, such as vaulting and I yy 1 - p 1 climbing. The buck, horse, horizontal bar, parallel bars and ropes have been used. These types of apparatus are most readily obtained or improvised generally throughout the service. Group games have been arranged and taught progressively, so that an oHicer may be in ag position to provide games suited to any type of soldier and lead the inapt and backward on to games requiring skillful use of all the faculties. Group games afford a high type of physical exercise with the recrea- tional feature added. With a large number at his command the oflicer who knows how to Watch his men and gauge the state of their interest is able by judicious selection and op- Z g g p 1 portune change to keep interest con- 5 1 4 V K 1 stantly at the highest pitch and bring U FWI ,.,A Qp -1 -- U J A. .pq I . .

If x u Q5 X , es., I l Xi A TENNIS ENNIS during the current year has occupied a more important place I on the sports schedule than ever before, due to an active committee and an unusual number of high class players. The committee worked diligently to have all courts in good condition when school started and successfully carried through four tournaments dur- ing the Fall season. Of these the men's singles was won by Captain R. C. Van Vliet, Jr., who defeated Captain Thomas D. Finley in the finals. Van Vliet had played several seasons in the Class A tournaments of New York and New Jersey and his game was a revelation to most of us. The menls doubles was won by Van Vliet paired with Captain S. Switzer, Jr., but only after an exciting four set match with the runners up, Finley and Whittemo1'e. The women's tournaments also developed a high standard of play and one would go far before witnessing a keener match than the one in which Miss lVIarion Hannah defeated lVIrs. W. Rumbough for the singles trophy. In mixed doubles lVlrs. Rumbough turned the tables and, paired with Captain Switz- er, won a close match from lVliss Hannah and Captain Whittemo1'e. Handsome prizes were awarded the winners and runners up in all these tournaments. Perhaps the outstand- ing event of the Fall sea- son was the sweeping vic- tory of the Benning players in the National Tourna- ments held by the American Legion during the Convention at New Qrleans, in October. Van Vliet, Finley, Switzer and VVhittemore attended this meet as representatives of the Columbus Legion Post. Van Vliet won the singles, going through the entire tournament without the loss of a set and defeating his teammate, Fin- ley, in the semi-finals. Van Vliet and Finley in the doubles had equal success and easily disposed of all opponents. Their Well earned victories were rewarded with three magnificent cups. Plans for the Spring are now in the mak- ing and an active season is anticipated. All players will have an opportunity to compete for a place on The Infantry School Team. The results of the Fall tournaments will be used to determine the initial relative standings. A player may advance on this relative list by de- feating in a challenge match the one next above him. The team normally consists of the top four players. Commencing early in April, matches will be played every week with the strongest college and club teams of the South. An effort will also be made to lift the Florida iT State crown about the first of lVlarch, when the tennis committee contemplates sending our two strongest players to ljalm Beach. Unfortunately THE DOVGIIBOY goes to press before we can , f. Q chronicle the results of this ambitious tennis pro- gram. Turning out a championship team is only one phase of what the committee conceives to be its mis- sion. Equally important is the popularizing of this fine sport at the School. The maintenance of ten clay courts and construction of two new ones of con- crete is expected to afford everyone an opportunity l5,, J to play. i To the students of the future we say: Do not fail to bring your rackets when you come. You may play late in the fall, early in the springtime and, if a real nut, all winter long. No matter how good you are for how badj opponents are to be had worthy of your metal. 'A ' ' Although tennis is a recognized sport and the school is represented each year by a i team, you don't have to be a crack to play the game, and you will never find it played under more favorable conditions than at Benning. Since the above was Written we have been afforded a last minute opportunity of giving a brief account of the Spring matches to date. On hlarch first our top pair, Van Vliet and Finley, journeyed to Palm Beach and there encountered some of the country's premier racketers. In their initial matches, both singles and doubles, the Infantrymen were victorious, but final success in a tourney which boasted the names of Norris, Williams, Hunter, Voshell, Hawk, and Schaefer was more than could be expected. The sec- ond round Witnessed the elimination of our players after valiant matches. Van Vliet surpassed himself in taking a set from Williams, ex-national champion, and Davis, cup star, the contest prov- ing one of the most brilliant of the fiiw. rf" t t s - to tournament. Finley went down before the terrific mid-season driving and service of H. T. Dickinson, late of Princeton. ln the doubles Williams and Wightman came from behind and took a very fast match from us. On April seventh our first local go took place before a large crowd of enthusiasts. The Atlanta Athletic Club sent down Hve most formidable opponents, among them Carleton Smith, Jeff Hunt and Carter. The ten- nis displayed was distinctly superior to any seen here before and this was to be expected as the visitors were the ranking players of the South. We lost the four singles matches and one doubles, but derived consolation from the decisive win scored by Van Vliet and Finley over Smith and Hunt in the first doubles event. This affair and the Van Vliet-Smith singles go which the latter won 8-6, 7-5, were thrillers long to be remembered. Following this defeat came a string of victories. Georgia Tech, Wof- ford and North Georgia Aggies were trounced in unmistakable fashion. Out of Hfteen individual matches played with these opponents we lost but one. The remainder of the season is looked forward to with confidence. Ahead of us we have: April 26-Albany Y. Nl. C. A., at Albany. April 23-University of Georgia, at Fort Benning. lVlay 5-Georgia Tech, at Atlanta freturn matchj. hlay 6-Atlanta Athletic Club at Atlanta freturn matchj. The regularly playing members of the lnfantry team are Van Vliet, Finley, Switzer, Whittemo1'e and Brand. Additional members of the squad: Heald, VVilkins and Bruno. . The season has witnessed the rise of the School right to the top of collegiate tennis in the South. VVith such a team we will stay there. lr! 1 N. r . 09 NETIQSED Qi-K' -1 j come-a mzosnmw -' 'ffl' QV fl E I. . : 1 AE gy-PM - .,.-. ----ra .fx V -' .

It has g been adopted as such for several ' -' --4 reasons. The training enhances considerably the value of horses for all military purposes. lt increases the confidence of the rider in himself and his mount, and assures supple muscles and a sure seat. When it is con- sidered that there are more than Eve hundred and fifty animals in a War strength lnfantry Regiment, and that more than fifty of the officers are mounted, it is obvious that any sport tending to promote horsemanship will increase the military efficiency of The Infantry. The Commanding General is keenly alive to the fact that Benning is the incubator for activities beneficial to The Infantry. Therefore, when in July, 1922, the polo players formed "The Polo Association of Fort Benning," he gave his hearty co-operation and approval. This Associa- tion was formed, to "Encourage, improve and develop Polo as a sport among the officers of the United States Army, Marine Corps, National Guard and Oflicers' Reserve Corps stationed at Fort Benningf' The - - ---?-7-.v..----f- - Y--f A , A igtgpre- 'fzz 2' 1'-fi V - . ky .1 , - ..-Q-.-,sz-.2 . f - fy -' i' bi-8:1935 allairs of the Association are admin- 6 v istered by the Polo Control Committee. This committee is made up of the various team captains as members. The Oliicers' Club allots funds for the general support of the game as well as for the other athletic activities and sports of The Infantry School at Port Benning. The interest manifested by the Chief of Infantry and our Command- ing General in the local efforts to put the game on a sound basis, by im- proving and enlarging facilities, establishes beyond doubt the position the game is destined to occupy in our branch of the service. During the past year a new club house has been completed and very great progress made in conditioning the new field. This field has been designated in orders as l'Shannon Field," in honor of the late Lieutenant- Colonel James A. Shannon, D. S. C. Throughout the year thirty or forty ollicers have consistently followed the game. They have formed them- selves into six teams, as follows: The Ist and 2nd Teams-29th Infantryg The ISf and 2I1Cl Teams-83rd F.

After the opening of school a Fall il' "F 'ft' ' A "' l Tournament for the Dierks Trophy was planned to be played under the local handi- cap rules. This tournament was inter- rupted by the entrance of a local composite team, representing The Infantry School, in the Fourth Corps Area Fall Tourna- ment held at Fort Oglethorpe from No- vember 26 to December 3, I922. F. A. TEAM The Benning Composite Team composed of Captains McClure, Betts, Brooks, and Lieuts. French, McKinney and Douglas, with twenty picked horses set out to display their prowess to all comers. The first game against the 6th Cavalry HYellow Jackets" resulted in an eight to nine victory for the Cavalry. Lieut. Nlcliinney, Benning's star player, was taken from the game with a broken arm. The second game ran to an extra period and after the last stroke, V- -I - - I 1 --1 -2 -, I , X Camp Bragg's Artillery Team emerged f-"' l victorious with a score of eight to Ben- ning's seven.

The Sunday afternoon games, mean, warms and delightful teas following, have proved very popular with both the military and civilian personnel of Benning and Columbus. The Post Commander as Commandant of The Infantry School, The 2 , Assistant Commandant, and ee- ' all others in authority, are do- ing their utmost to provide at Benning, ample facilities for that broadening education, which is The Infantry School's function to impart.

Up before cfawn, in position at early morning, we have seen them returning at flush. We have been impressecl with the spirit they have put into their maneuvers. We have watched them inclifferent to heat and cofcf afihe, play the game with an their might in order that we might get a true and compfete picture. Patient and cheer- fuf, they watch student generations come and go, giving to each suc- ceeding class the impression of something fresh and new for its especiaf Zneneft. Despite long hours and exacting work, they have energy anal enthusiasm for their athietics--efoquent evidence of their fine spirit. Into our memory of The Infantry Schoo7 wifi be incfeiibiy im- pressed a pleasant and appreciative recollection of the troops of Fort Benning.

INFANTRY TEAM ln 1922, as in 1921, Fort Benning contributed largely to the ln- fantry Team Five of the nine commissioned ritle men had been either instructors or students in 1922 and three others had graduated in former years. The National Matches and the N. R. A. hlatches have come to be post graduate schools in marksmanship. Accordingly, larger numbers have been sent to them than has been the case heretofore. The lnfantry al- lowance for the tryout has been raised from seventy-live to ninety-five and it is expected that twenty-eight, the number heretofore allowed for the matches. will be naturally increased. RIFLE TEAM New men are constantly being developed. In 1921 it Was difficult to obtain the required minimum number of five new team members for the National Match. But in 1922 there were six new shots to four former members of the team and the average score Was higher. In 1921, our team with regulation rilles and sights competing against teams With special rilies and telescopic sights beat the record in the Herrick Trophy lVIatch by four points with a score of 1738 out of 1800. In 1922, in addition to a regular team with regulation rifles, another team With special rifles and telescopic sights Was entered. This team made a com- .112 PISTOL TEAM plete score of lives including sighting shots at 800 yards, 597 out of 600 at AQOO yards, and 590 out of 600 at 100 yards-a total of 1,787 out of I,800. The closeness of the shooting in general is shown by the Winning of the N. R. A. Pistol lVIatch by our "Scrub Team" after our first team had lost to the Marine Corps first team. The Infantry in 1922 Won nine N. R. A. individual matches, three out of four two-men team matchesg nineteen National Individual Rifle, and twenty-one National Individual Pistol medals, out of seventy- two of each awarded. Though the value of training is stressed, as being a purpose in itself, ev ery member of the team tries his hardest to win. All are on their mettle to see that the one-third per cent. by which the National Match was lost in 1922 will be on the other side of the ledger in 1923. AK' .

The French claim that this attack was only a faint. divisions arrived after a heavy nights march. brisk lighting took place between both armies. iii enlilated tire was forced upon the Confederates. Archduke Charles who was at Landshut divided into three columns. VVhy didn't happened this forward and shiftiest movement of the Austrian. Take the offensive whenever there is opportunity. There is plenty of such. This fact was not known to the French who accordingly made plans to counter- act it. He didn't know how long his ammunition would last or how it would be reblemished. From all I can gather Napoleon was one of the world's greatest military leaders. llflenls minds were slowly being made up to stomach the deception of the French and Hght England. Italy is divided into sixty-nine provinces, which are distributed among sixteen compartments. We have heard much of this prominent figure CNapoleonj in history-but few have studied his life. From this we learn that a commander must know where the enemy are, also where his own troops are.

To go to sleep again was the reasonable thing to do, but just as my eyes were closing they rested on my book-shelves across the room. Shelf on shelf, they rose to the ceiling, all filled with pamphlets, mimeographs, regulations, interpretations, corrections, changes and errata sheets issued to me when I had been a student at the Infantry School. They were all there-intact, unblemished, unread. I had been able to keep them together. because, just as they had abrogated and superseded all that had been issued the year before, so they, too, were in turn superseded and abrogated the following year. I had kept them all, not entirely as a whim, but in the event that I should ever be detailed as an instructor at the Infantry School I could re-introduce them as the latest development of military science. KIusing over my student days at the Infantry School, I remembered with a start that this was the date on which the new Class Building at the Infantry School was to be dedicated. XVhy not go? This was too great an occasion to be missed. I could make use of one of the new I-Iot Airplanes. Great improvements had been made over the crude model that had been produced at the School during my student days, and many an oHicer had gone far and reached high rank by their skilful use. ff Q!! !f.

I recognized his suave tones at onceg they had become very familiar during the year that l, as a fellow student, had listened to them. lVith his characteristic generosity--he was always willing to give away anything that did not belong to him-he assured me that l could have one of his fastest Hot Airplanes. It was waiting for me by the time l was ready to go. VVithin a couple of hours we were at Fort Benning. l could hardly recognize it. VVe had landed on a beautiful parade ground, bordered by tropical shrubs and flowers. Comfortable quarters had been built in place of the old pasteboard and tarpaper shacks. Student officers had all the comforts of enlisted men in barracks. Groups o'f officers were sketching. I was told that they were no longer sent out, en mass, to make a road sketch on the one traveled road, nor were mounted sketches made in rain- storms. l was impressed. The new library was well lighted and arranged. Class caucuses and informal receptions were no' longer held in the reading room. VVhat struck me most forcibly was a new regulation saying that since student officers were compelled to be at classes until four olclock, that the sales Commissary should remain open until 4:15. Assuredly, great improvements had been made. ln the great auditorium, Rlajor Agony sang a solo in his rich, falsetto' voice. As the last seepings died away, a slender, blonde officer came hurriedly up the aisle, his spurs clicking, and spoke to someone on the platform. The great pipe organ pealed, but changed to a deep, stern voice. measured and distinct. lt said: "OHicers will put on unionalls, strap their riHes over their back, wear their gas masks, carry all other equipment in their hands, and ride out horseback to see a demonstration. VVhen they reach the point selected, the demonstration will not be given, on account of the rain and the cold, and officers will return at once to the schoolf' l awoke with a start. Colonel Heavy was forming the class for the next period, and l had slept through the vital, distinctive definition of a combat connecting group. BIGLERVILLE 9' IGLERVILLE, of which-Ft. Benning and Columbus are suburbs, caters to their educational and commercial needs respectively and is deserving of much more publicity than it receives. Ft. Benning, whose function it is to mould visiting transients from an indefinite, incoherent heterogeneity into a definite, coherent homogeneityby means of various differentiations and examinations, receives much publicity from its collaborator, Columbus, which puts advertising matter on each train leaving Palm Beach for Reno. But Biglerville, serene in her walkless streets, sits proudly aloof, surrounded by great spaces and conscious of her own prosperity. The founder of Biglerville must of had a premonition of the place she was sometime to play in the great affairs of men for even the name of Biglerville is characteristic and aristocratic, having a distinctly foreign flavor. lt is derived from two French words-BIG meaning Hpiles' and LER Ccorruption of the word ULIEUHD meaning place, space or "room," hence "piles of room". The VILLE was added as an artistic touch and to indicate the French origin. As the name indicates there are piles of rooms in Biglerville but each one is occupied. Although each room has the same dimensions and interior decorations and is equally accessible to the natatorium, rentals run from 34.0.00 to 55100.00 per month. This follows the policy in vogue in Columbus of fixing the rental by the amount of rental allowance of the occupant. ' Transients each winter tax its housing capacity to the limitg in fact, during the last winter it was found necessary to build an attractive suburb to the northeast. All of these new quarters with their common club house were occupied immediately upon completion. The leading cafe where most of the officers and their guests dine at Biglerville has many attractive features not the least of which are the unnumbered hatho'oks. Each officer and his guest is at liberty to select any hook he chooses on which to deposit his lylontana Peak without hesitating to differentiate between his code num- ber, club number, riHe number, pistol number, P. O. box number or his class standing -a thoughtful touch deeply appreciated by the fortunate ones. Opportunity is also afforded students of inquiring mind to investigate the art of acquiring head gear by selection. As the through train passes the Biglerville Union Station at noon and the con- ductor calls ''Big-ler-ville-fall-out'' many officers who are compelled to motor to the distant village of Columbus look with interest at Biglerville While they go on in their unionalls to the little red school house to eat from a cold dinner pail by the stove. One glance at the appointments convinces them that, though all may belong to the same union no one would indulge in unionalls in the Biglerville cafe. VVhile entraining at Biglerville is always popular, and sometimes possible, the traffic congestion is such that it can seldom be done. So the inhabitants entrain at the more commodious station at Ft. Benning. They are, however, amply compen- sated for the walk when ten minutes later the train passes through Biglerville without stop and they can enjoy the view of their homes moving with the peaceful landscape swiftly by. Nor is Biglerville without her lighter moments. The gay evening assemblages in the Cafe where by mutual understanding all appear in the gay olive drab evening dress with glistening S. B. belts more than make up for the lack of other recreation. And oftimes in the early morning hours are heard the tinkle of the piano and the throbbing minors of the jungle singers. ' And to all its other advantages Biglerville offers the spice of adventure, the navigation of the great plain between it and the Fort. The plain would tempt the most intrepid explorer with its lake, bottomless bogs and maze of paths. Only the most reckless of Biglerville's inhabitants attempt its passage at night and then only when monographs demand work in the library. Even though her population changes regularly and periodically Biglerville has a charm all her own. She is not likely to be forgotten by those who once were sheltered within her precincts- r yt 4' A .nv "" Ja... FIELD OFFICERS CLASS i w 1 U fl 4 1 'N ,135 ff ,y ' A ,a!:.sL..,..

Old name Cchange tol New name Kleaning per Vlfehster. Bunlcie Buddy Comrade in arms. Cits Civvies Civilian clothing. Sam Browne Champagne Belt with bandolier at- tachment worn by oflicers and female entertainers. Clt is believed that the term "Buddy" will be more readily understood by the civilian populace, as its use for the former term was more prevalent among the men during the late war. "Civvies" is a more appropriate term than the time honored "cits,', as it seems to have great favor among the fair sex. Also the harsh sounding "Sam Browne" should be replaced with a name more reminiscient of that fair land upon whose soil so many of our brave comrades sought bread and lied to the Nlaire for it.

HE Doughhoy .Staff wishes to express its grate- , ful appreciation of your generous support which has macfe this volume a possibility. Our fahors have been materiaffy lightened by the knowledge that you have been constantfy with us and for us. The prompt response by the stucfent lnocfy to our every request has been equaffeaf onfy by the great consideration shown us by the School Authorities. We have triecl in every way to carry out the wishes of the stucfents, and to set forth cfearfy the principles and policies of The Infantry Schoof. The tash has not been easy nor has it always been a happy one. But if we have succeeclecf in cfoing something which pfeases you even in the slightest cfegree we shaff afways feel that our egorts have not been in vain. COLUMBUS, GEORGIA OLUMBUS, GIQORGLX, like lfort Benning, should be of interest to the ollicers of the Llnited States Army as thousands of the com- missioned otlicers will visit both places as The Infantry School grows older. Columbus, located at the head of navigation on the Chattahoochee river, is 360 miles from the Gulf of blexico and is separated by the stream from Alabama, the city being the metropolis of XVestern Georgia. Steamers on the river carry the sportsman to the Great Deadlakes Region, noted for its hunting and fishing possibilities. The city is famed for its wide and beautiful streets, laid out loo years ago by state engineers who made the avenues and streets from 99 to 164 feet in width, allowing for beautiful parkways. Of special interest to the army oliicers are the schools, churches, highways and living accomodations. The Columbus public schools rank with those at the top. Two high schools are a part of the system. There is also Lorena Hall, a private school for girls, Chase Conservatory of hlusic and a parochial school. Churches of practically every denomina- tion are to be found in Columbus and these are conveniently located. One of the most beautiful squares of Columbus is the Church Square, also made possible by the foresight of the men laying the city out Ioo years ago. Beautiful drives, with an all year climate allowing automobile drives at any time, together with many points of interest in and near Columbus, offer an opportunity for many interesting trips. The Andersonville cem- etery is only 5o miles away. Six good hotels and a number of tea rooms, cafes and cafeterias offer Southern cooking and provide Columbus with the best eating places to be found in the South. A street car system, one line making the famous Wyiinton loop, and taxicabs make transportation easy. Fort Benning is reached by train or a bus line operating on regular hourly schedule. Amusements suiting those of any age are to be found in Columbus. Numerous moving picture theatres and an opera house Where the lead- ing productions are presented, are facilities for entertainment. A Country Club located on a hill-top with beautiful golf links is just beyond the sub- urbs of Columbus. Athletics find a place at the Driving Park Where many of The Infantry School athletic contests are staged. The park is the home of the annual Georgia-Auburn football classic when thousands of people visit Columbus. The Y. Nl. C. A. has several tennis courts near its famous marble home, the gift of George Foster Peabody, a native of Columbus. Sev- eral fresh water bathing pools are near the city and the Y. lvl. C. A. has a swimming pool as well as a large gymnasium. A number of dances at several halls with large floor space are given often. The Elks home has one of the best dance floors in the South. lVIany army officers and their families have taken advantage of the Chatta- hoochee Valley river trip as the means of finding recreation. The trip to the Gulf of Mexico and back requires about live days to make, the comfortably equipped steamer carrying the passenger through a panorama of scenery offering ten varieties of Nature's own art works, ranging from craggy cliffs to semi-tropical forests. Columbus is 'lwell organized". Four civic clubs, an Ad club, many fraternal and patriotic organizations and a real Chamber of Commerce, together with a number of other organizations, gives an outlet for ex- pression of one's civic, fraternal or patriotic spirit. The Elks, hflasons Knights of Columbus, lVloose, hlodern VVoodmen and other organizations have their club rooms centrally located. The American Legion post, one of the largest in the South, has many military men as members and the commander of the post this year is a captain of Infantry. Several hun- dred ollicers and enlisted men at the fort belong to the Legion post at Columbus. The civic clubs, Rotary, Kiwanis, Civitan and Lions, as well as the Ad Club, are big factors in making life in Columbus most pleasant for the people of the army circle. The several civic bodies work with the Chamber of Commerce in promoting the friendliest of feeling between the military personnel and the civilians. Matters of mutual interest to both city and fort are handled by the Camp Activities Committee of the Chamber of Commerce. The incoming officers are carried on tours of inspection of the city, being shown the great cotton mills, the lumber plants and other industries. The proximity of a great hydro-electric power development has given in- dustrial development in Columbus and vicinity great impetus. One mill covers more than 30 acres and is the largest cotton mill under one roof in America. The largest commercial furniture and hxture plant in the South is located in Columbus. The civic clubs are anxious that every arrival for duty at Fort Benning know Columbus and this year the plans for show- ing the city to the new arrivals will be handled by the Ad Club and the Chamber of Commerce. There are a variety of industries and the abun- dance of power, together with transportation facilities and other advantages will, no doubt, make Columbus one of the greatest industrial cities of the na- tion. At the present time it is known as one of the South's great indus- trial communities. Columbus wants her army friends to see these in- dustries. The transportation service into and out of Columbus is helping more than the industries as the tourist now Iinds it an easy matter to reach Columbus. ilihere are two all l'ullman trains between Columbus and St. Louis and Chicago. Sleeping car service, at desirable hours for night travel, is afforded between Savannah and Columbus while Pullman service on two lines may be had to NVashington and New York. Atlanta, scarcely more than loo miles away, may be visited in comfort by use of parlor car service. Jacksonville is in easy reach of Columbus via use of good train service. There are a number of historical and interesting places in and near Columbus. Some of these are the scene of the last Battle of the Civil XVar. at the Fourteenth street bridgeg St. lilmo, the ante-bellum home where Augusta Evans lvilson secured her scenes for the novel bearing that name: the house where the beautiful custom of Southern blemorial Day originated is still standing at l7iOLl1'Ui4:'l1fl1 street and Fourth avenue, an interesting place for a visit on the part of any Southern womang the Oglethorpe table, foot of Broad street, the stone on which General Ogle- thorpe set foot on his visit to this section and many others. Nearby resorts, a matter of 40 miles, reached by good roads offer interesting trips along the lines already mentioned. Columbus is on two main highways, the Dixie Overland and the Florida Short Route. In addition to being an interesting city and one most delightful for a home, combining many of the customs of the old South with the con- veniences of the modern day, Columbus is well policed and has a modern motorized fire department With several sub-stations located in residential sections. The efficient city commission-manager government is past its experimental stages and is doing much to provide further conveniences for the citizens. The Columbus Chamber of Commerce is ever ready to be of assist- ance to the army officers and their families and will cooperate in any Way to make the stay of these people pleasantn The organization cheerfully sends literature or specific information to any inquirer.

In round figures, the following statistical items will make this clear at a glance: Number of Spindles .. 439,500 Number of Looms ....................... 7,850 Number of Bales of Cotton Consumed Yearly ...,.... l35,000 Value of Cotton Consumed Yearly at 25c per lb. ...Sl6,750,000.00 Value of Annual Production ...................... S30,000.000.00 Annual Wages Paid ........... ...... .... S 6 ,500,000.00 Number of Operatives Employed .......... 8,500 Estimated Number of Persons Supported by Textile Pay-Rolls ............................... 25,000 It may also be a surprise to learn that Columbus Mills make heavy shipments of cotton goods into the very heart of New England and to Canada. They also ship large quantities to the Middle West and to the Pacific Coast States, in tact, to every state in the Union. This constant stream of fresh money being drawn into Columbus from the four corners of the earth by the far-flung trade of the Mills is one of the main reasons Why business conditions are, as a general rule, steadier in Columbus, than in almost any other city of this section.
