Starting seventeen years ago as a very small bubble on the surface of the Army's training pool, it has become not only the largest special service school in the United States but also in the world. History tells us that as far back as 1826 there was established at jefferson Barracks, Missouri, an Infantry School of Practice, hav- ing to do with the training of foot soldiers in musketry and Infantry tactics. However, it was not until the year 1907 that the present conception of the Infantry School took form, for it was in this year that General MacArthur, while commanding the Pacific Division realized the necessity of co-ordinated training of the Infantry, especially for greater efficiency in the use of the rifle, and consequently directed the organization of a School of Musketry at the Presidio of Monterey, California. There practical and theoretical instruction in the use of small arms and the theory of machine gun fire was given to the selected officers and men of the division. There was also organized a Department of Experiment, a smalluedition of the same Department now functioning at the Infantry School. The courses were of three months duration and the classes were necessarily small, never consisting of more than eighty officers and men. The start in the right direction had been made and greater results were to' follow shortly. The Monterey school was the first step taken toward battering down the time worn theory that Wars were won by mechanicians and technicians instead of by Infantry in attack with rifle and bayonet and the auxiliary Weapons. It took a big step toward proving to the service that there is no sphere of training so vitally important as that of the Infantry. It succeeded in establishing a truth clearly demonstrated by the World War, that the most vital role in combat is played by the foot soldier and that on a highly trained and efficient Infantry rests the ultimate success of all armies. As the excellent results of the Monterey school became apparent thru- out the service, the value of this training was recognized and efforts were L 1 1 is N 2 s' 5 - 'T ' XL 'Q fu Q ' ga N. up fu :iq -Q l 'Wy Je , 'gif , New f l924- DOUGHBOY ' made to have the school taken over as an Army institution. This was achiev- ed in 1913 and, christened the School of Musketry, it was moved to Fort Sill, Oklahoma, the location of the School of Fire for Field Artillery. While the Fort Sill reservation partially met the increased needs of this important training scheme and provided opportunity for cooperative work with the Artillery, it was never satisfactory from the larger viewpoint of all- round Infantry training. Finally upon our entry in the World War in 1917 the Artillery's need for expansion gradually crowded out the School of Mus- ketry and led to instruction in Infantry tactics and arms being given at three widely separated centers. First, the Small Arms Firing School was established at Camp Perry, Ohio, this was followed by the Machine Gun School at Camp Hancock, Georgia, while the remaining departments of Infantry Instruction continued to function at Fort Sill. From the start this was a very unsatisfactory condition of affairs and ultimately led to the consideration of a site for an Infantry School where would be combined the triple headed training centers of the Infantry arm. In selecting a location for this consolidated school, there were a number of special requirements to be considered in addition to the customary features necessary in a camp site. Chief among these were climatic conditions which would permit uninterrupted work the entire year: a large variety of terrain for unrestricted use as a class "B" rangeg a location near the center of population and within easy access to a seaport: and finally adequate rail facilities so that the several divisions which might be trained at such a school could be quickly moved. The first steps toward selecting a location were taken in june 1917 and between this date and September 1918, a lapse of sixteen months, a number of sites were considered. In practically every case the present location was first choice and finally the matter was sifted down to a decision between this and a location at Fayetteville, North Carolina. The Artillery already having selected the Fayetteville site for a firing school, a board which convened in September 1918, reached the decision to locate the Infantry School near Columbus, Georgia, and accordingly pro- ceeded eventually to purchase one of the largest tracts of land ever bought by the government of any nation. The Infantry School as it stands to-day, em- braces 97,000 acres and includes a varied terrain ideally suited to Infantry training.

Here was laid the foundation of a plan of progressive training which still remains the guide to the development of our doughboys. The first school buildings were located on the Columbus-Macon Road, some eight miles north of the present school headquarters. This location gradually proving inadequate, it was determined to move the entire plant to another spot on the reservation, a plateau along the Chattahoochee River and Upatoi Creek, nine miles south of Columbus was selected and in June 1919 the school was moved lock, stock and barrel to its present location. Under the original plans, the Secretary of War had authorized the pur- chase of about 115,000 acres of land, the expenditure of approximately 33,600,000 for the project and directed that accomodations be provided for 24,000 troops. These plans were formulated exactly twenty-three days prior to the signing of the Armistice, and concurrent with the ending of the great struggle came a revision of the entire Infantry School scheme to fit peace time requirements. On December 26th, 1918, the construction features were cut down so as to accomodate 10,000 men and this was subjected to a further slice on Jan- uary 20th, 1919, when the War Plans Division directed the Construction Division to prepare estimates for only 5040 men. This estimate was submitted on January 25th, 1919, and on January 27th it was recommended that the area be reduced from 115,000 acres to approximately 98,000 to conform with the reduction of the intended personnel to 5040. On March 8th, 1919, both proposals were approved by the Assistant Secretary of War who directed the construction and purchase of real estate to be resumed so as to provide for approximately 5000 officers and men on 98,000 acres of land. The cost of the land was to be about S2,600,000g the co'st of construction not to exceed S6,600,000, making the total cost not in excess of 59,200,000 The project Went swiftly ahead, lands were acquired and temporary barracks built as rapidly as possible until on june 27th, 1919, when the Secretary of War directed that all purchase of real estate and construction Work cease. The fate of the Infantry School hung in the balance and it was not until nine months later and after great efforts on the part of the War Department that Congress decided to continue theiproject and insure its 'ff' to 5 me 1 'Wt .1 A Ci -so I 924 DOUGHBOY . Q 5 , x : lv 'l ' permanence. The battle for the survival of the Infantry School was Won after it had apparently been lost a dozen times. The first student classes reported to the Infantry School on December 2nd, 1918 to take a Combined Course, lasting until February 22nd, 1919. This was followed by another class starting on March 15th and graduating September 30th of the same year. These first classes were necessarily small and in the ten months from December 1918 until October 1919 a total of 161 officers of the Regular Army graduated. The majority were junior officers and commissioned dur- ing or after the emergency. In October 1919 the first long class was established, known as the Basic Course. This same year the first National Guard and Reserve Officers' Class was organized. A total of 115 Regular Army Officers and 27 National Guard and Reserve Officers graduated in the term 1919-1920, the student personnel still continuing to be small due to the scanty appropriations, and the fact that the fate of the Infantry School as a permanent institution hung in the balance. It was not until the Spring of 1920, following the bill appropriating 31,000,000 for the completion of the construction started and the purchase of real estate, that a decision was reached making the Infantry School a per- manent service institution. Following this the student classes were increased by leaps and bounds and in 1920-21 were graduated the largest number of men ever turned out at Benning. In that year the first Field Officers' Class and Company Commanders' Class were started. The Basic Class was continued in two sections, due to its large size and the National Guard and Reserve Officers' Classes also showed a large increase in attendance. In all 644 officers were graduated. These same classes were organized for the year 1921-22, with the addition of the General Officers' and Refresher Courses. The name of the Company Commanders' Course was changed to Company Officers' Course, without deviation in the curriculum. For the next year the Basic Course was discontinued, due to the reduc- tion in the commissioned personnel under the elimination act, and no lieu- tenants attended the Company Officers' Course except those who had been reduced from the grade of captain. This policy continued in vogue for the current year. My 1 15: is 'Q ' T , S Y . '41 ts, 1 Y!

This occurred during the term 1921-22 and consisted of but one officer, Brigadier General Fox Conner. His work was a general study of the work taught by the Infantry School coupled with observation of the application of these prin- ciples. The establishment of this class had two fold effect. It gave increased dignity to the work in the eyes of the junior officers and signified the pro- found depth of the study of military art. It demonstrated beyond equivoca- tion that in study the principles of war are never fully learned except in a relative sense. General Conner was enthusiastic in his approval and praise of the Infan- try School and the success of this first course led to its continuance in 1922-23 and the attendance of the following: Brigadier General William D. Connor, Brigadier General Richmond P. Davis, ' Brigadier General Edwin B. Winans, Brigadier General Malvern-Hill Barnum, Brigadier General Leroy H. Irwin, Brigadier General Frank Parker, Realizing that numerous officers in the field grades needed to refresh themselves on matters of latest development in the Infantry, the War Department ordered the establishment of an abbreviated course of ten Weeks duration to be called the Refresher Course. On the 14th of November, 1921 the first Refresher Class reported and consisted of five colonels and five lieutenant-colonels, with service of from 23 years for the junior to 35 years for the senior. The course continued until january 31st and the students departed after heartily indorsing the projectg and, as one officer stated, Henvying the junior officers who were fortunate enough to take the entire course."

It is about these classes that the school is built. The National Guard and Reserve Officers' Class is of three months duration and in some years as many as two classes are held. This depends entirely on funds available. One class reported this yearg starting March 1st and lasting through May. A glimpse at the roster of graduates from the Infantry School gives us the following interesting figures and shows that a total of 1919 officers have been made efficient Infantry leaders: 1919 Officers Graduating Regular Army 161 1920 Regular Army 115 National Guard Z7 142 1921 Regular Army 583 National Guard 8: Reserve 61 644 1922 Regular Army 437 National Guard 8: Reserve 81 518 1923 Regular Army 370 National Guard 8: Reserve 84 454 Total - 1919 The students for the current year number 231 from the Regular Army and 155 from the National Guard and Reserve, making a total of 386 who will graduate. It is believed that this will be the approximate number to take the work each year. Now that the courses have passed through the earlier formative stages and are becoming better, it is thought with a continuous output of graduates averaging 350 per annum, the Infantry School can adequately supply the Regular Army, National Guard, R. O. T. C., O. R. C., and C. M. T. C. 1 tag? -5 - I 2-5 Y ' , gf" lf wi? 9 -6 W Y W - X ,J , ' 1 mi lc.

It is the opinion that here would be located the great training center of Infantrymen and that instructors would be provided for Schools in the various corps areas. Fully 800 trained men could be graduated from Benning every ninety days: here might also be stationed the school for the 4th Corps Area. From four to five divisions could be trained here and dis- patched to any given point within a minimum of time should the need ariseg here would be the center of experimentation, development, technique and tactics of all Infantry weapons. The Infantry School wou'd become the center of wartime activities even as it is now leading the way in peacetime training. The Infantry School is dedicated to the Infantry and exists by and for the Infantry. The spirit underlying the institution is the same as that back of the Infantrymen, which spirit, to quote the words of an eminent and gallant soldier, himself a Doughboy. "In response to America's call, wrote into the history of the World War an immortal record on the battlefields of France, winning at a cost of 89 percent of all American dead the greatest victory which has ever crowned the achievements of American arms. "Which will continue by its willing and fearless acceptance of hardship and sacrifice to preserve all that is manly and noble in the military profession, and to insure to America the integrity of her splendid institutions whatever the source from which they may be threatened".

BENNING DISTINGUISHED Confederate General Henry Lewis Benning, after whom Fort Benning was named, was born in Muscogee County, Georgia, near the city of Columbus, on April 2nd, 1814. At the age of 17 he entered the University of Georgia and graduated in law as the first mem- ber of a class which contained many men of note and distinction. He was admitted to the bar at Columbus and in 1837 was appointed Solici- , tor-General of the Chattahoochee Circuit, a sig- nal honor for a young man of his age. In 1838 he was married to Miss Mary Howard, daughter of Colonel Seaborn jones of Columbus. Shortly afterwards he resigned his position as Solicitor-General and resumed the practice of law in partnership with Colonel jones. He was made a justice of the Supreme Court of Georgia in 1853 and so served until 1859, becoming noted throughout the South. In 1860 he was elected to the Convention of Georgia, went as a corn- missioner to the Virginia Convention in 1861, and following the outbreak of the Civil War entered the Confederate Service as Colonel of the l7tb Georgia Regiment in August 1861. After commanding Toomb's Brigade of the Army of Virginia for several months, he was promoted to the rank of Brigadier General. Thereafter he frequently commanded Hood's Division of the First Corps. For his coolness and gallantry he won the soubriquet of 'Old Rockf He participated in the Battles of Second Manassas, Sharpsburg, Fred- ericksburg, Chickamauga, Wilderness, Thoroughfare Gap, Malvern-Hill, Lookout Valley, Fort Louden, Knoxville, Petersburg, Farmsville, and many minor engagements. He was slightly wounded at Chickamauga, and later was severely Wounded in the shoulder during the second day of the Battleibf the Wilderness. This wound troubled him during the remainder of his life. Following the close of the War, General Benning returned to Columbus and resumed the practice of law, continuing in this vocation until death called him after a brief illness on july 10th, 1875. He died an honored citizen, dis- I A .V-qv ix -s wa if r , W .1 , 7,-1-,-Let, A,,,-1-2--U 1 X A r 5 xv In .g f, X 1 v I A: 1924 nou uqoyjgk tinguished jurist and statesman, a brave soldier and loyal patriot. Many of his descendants live in Columbus and Muscogee County today, In naming the great Infantry School for this gallant soldier, the War Department paid a well deserved tribute to a noted Southerner as well as a military leader who saw all of his service with the Infantry.

These groups are termed com- mittees and are designated by the letters A, B, and C. Committee A is charged with teaching in- l fantry organization, the functioning in combat of staffs Qto include the reinforced brigadej the subject of logistics of infantry units in combat, and signal communications, this last embracing different methods of signalling, the duties of message centers and something of the interchange of messages between infantry and aerial forces. This Committee also conducts a course in military intelligence that includes instruction in the training, functioning and use of infantry intelligence units, and, in coordination with Committee C, teaches Minor warfare, combat in woods, river crossing, night operations and the capture and occupation of towns. The scope of instruction is the same for the Refresher and Advance Courses but in the classes for the Company Officers does not involve units larger than a regiment. Only the most important points are presented in the brief course prescribed for the National Guard and Reserve Classes. Committee B is responsible for the proper teaching of map reading, and the practical making of area, position and road sketches. Then too this com- mittee touches on the methods of aerial photography and' the interpretation and restitution of vertical photographs, and cooperates with Committee C in presenting the subject of field engineering and the organization and duties of divisional engineer troops. To committee C is assigned the broad field of teaching tactical employ- ment of all infantry combat units from the individual scout to the reinforced brigade. This is accomplished through conferences, tactical walks, demon- strations, field and map exercises, map problems and a series of tests. Q Y ,I ,J Y 12 ---' S ' .-.

Some old timers seemed to doubt the ability of the gun to do much shooting when it was filled up with so many parts. Great surprise therefore, when, in spite of its formidable works, the gun made all the hits the instructors claimed it would. The student has discovered that knowledge of the mechanism is - f- -Q power when the time comes xt- .a,ef-fi:-'- to shoot.

This was a result of -K. the carefully regulated system of training put over as usual on the best bayonet court in the country. There was no qualification course as yet approved, but the student was given a run at it anyway, after which there was evidence of a considerable amount of re- spect for the Bayonet Expert of the future. The course in bayonet fighting comprises demonstration, explanation, and practical work in the technique and teaching methods of bayonet combat. The important thing in bayonet training is the spirit of the offensive, planted 14' R v -', ' H I 'hi-4 -vb If ffl. ...J 'rll 1 I-I If V4 fe? , .-. fi 'tif' e .- 4--1 .- f 1. 1 K , , 1 - T lr - -6 W 5 s we ' as 4 ' ,yu iq-- II4 s Int lc. r Q C I924-.DDUGHEOY t ' 3!

The constant stressing and developing of this spirit is the chief task of the bayonet instructor. This is now all the easier with the new "Bayonet Expert" qualification course-a run which simulates the actual conditions of hand-to-hand fighting with the bayonet to a greater de- gree than any previous feature of bayonet training. Here the fighter meets his "dummy" enemies in all conceivable positions and arrangements, and despatches them successively with varying thrusts: parries, and butt strokes.

Colored landscape targets, fleeting bobbing targets, concealed targets, bold lines of targets, distant targets-about all that any reasonable man could expect outside of live targets. All varieties of fire control were exemplified. There was nothing "highbrow" about it. Any soldier could follow this course and have a good working knowledge of combined fire. As a sequence Combat Practice was put on in a brief series of exercises, mostly demonstrations, where all weapons available to a section were shown in action. Grenades, bayonet, smoke, gas, maneuver, scouting and patrolling over open ground, woods, brush, by section, by squad, by half squad, done the right way, the wrong way and about every other possible way. The student found himself getting more interested and confused than he expected and a heap of sharp argument followed every critique. RIACHINE GUNS The classes glided into the biggest course in the section, Machine Guns, some scared stiff at the strange contraptioin. Before they knew it they were manhandling the thing around like an old lawn mower, taking it apart, doctoring its ailments, adjusting its fire, directing its action, figuring barrages, F1 YH.

They shot through smoke, over hills, over friendly troops, and walked under its fire. They finished off with Combat Practice, and solved problems with ball ammunition in the field. HOWITZER COMPANY WEAPONS Doughboy Artillery! The classes took to these weapons, the 37MM Gun and 3 inch trench mortar, found them accurate, easy to handle, and effective. They fired about all they wanted to, wrecked the supply of targets on hand, heated up the guns and generally satisfied any personal doubt as to their own ability and that of the guns. In general the memory is not burdened in any weapons course. The instructor explains, trained troops demonstrate, the student applies every- thing himself practically. Step by step, slowly and patiently, the instructor and his assistants check on progress, until, without any lost motion in the pro- cess, the student discovers he can actually do anything with the weapon. Not expertly, perhaps, but well enough to show another or a multitude of others, exactly how to acquire expertness. Finally, the examination is prac- tical. No memorized data is required. If the student can do what he has been taught, the Section is satisfied. f"N ff W "' 1 - 14 ' 54" 9 L Qi 74 r...

M T524-'DOUGHBOY DEPARTMENT OF GENERAL SUBJECTS FIRST SECTION f :J HE Military History Section embraces the following: The Army of the United States, Psychology, Training Management and Military History proper. W il . . . 4 The officer of our army today has important duties beyond and above the definite practice of his profession. He is called upon both in time of peace and war to deal with his fellow citizens in civil life. He is primarly in charge of their military education and training. He must pre- pare not only to teach the details of his profession, but he must know the fundamental reasons that lie behind them and how to bring the civilian to a realization of his place and importance. He is above all an instructor and must be able to present his conclusions readily, forcefully and convincingly. It is the purpose of the Military History Section to help him realize this two-fold aim. A study of the Army of the United States gives him an insight into the past work and present condition of that body which has been the greatest single factor in the building of our mental reactions and attitude of those With whom he must deal. Training Management is new to the course this year. It may be briefly defined as the function and process of promulgating and effecting the whole training of one's command. Its purpose is to assist the commander to estimate the situation and decide on his plan: to issue his training orders, programs and Schedulesg and to gain effect readily by removing obstacles and getting the most value out of inspections. They key note of the course is efficiency in training. The course divides itself into four main phases: lst the training mission of the Regular Army in time of peace. Zdg training as modified on mobilization day and after mobilization. 3dg training as ap- plied to the civilian components of the Army of the United States in time of peaceg and 4th, inspections and standards. It includes the subject Methods of Instruction which deals with the actual presentation of a subject to a class and shows the practical application of the science of pedagogy to military instruction.

In Military Art the student is given the facts and reasons to the result, but in Military History he is faced at once with the effect itself. He must then seek the reasons for the result and the means employed and determine the success or failure of their application. Thus by induction he learns to' recognize and apply the practical principles of technique and tactics no mat- ter in what guise they appear. The monograph has been found to be the most successful means of attaining this result at the Infantry School. It allows the student to cover well a particular phase of military events. He must make his own selection of material, original preparation and personal analysis and criticism of the material he has assembled. The oral delivery of the monograph offers him practice in personally presenting the results of his work and by skill, care- ful illustration, enthusiasm and logic bringing others to see as he sees. Above all the course in Military History awakens the student to the possibilities of professional education and pleasure to be found in the military library.

To the Third Section Department of General Subjects is intrusted the subject of Military Physical Training. It is easily I seen that to be an instructor in this phase of work the officer should know how the various forms of exercise are taken and have a fair degree of proficiency in the CSX rf-XX X,-.-X work himself. In order that they be able to serve as of- ficials and assist in developing intra-mural physical activi- ties arid properly teach or supervise the formal physical exercises in the organizations they may hereafter command a practical course rather than a theoretical course is given. By the applicatory method of having the officers act- ually performing the physi- cal training they are to later impart to their men the Stu- dent derives a considerable personal benefit in addition to a further knowledge in the subject. The student sudden- ly becomes aware that the confined duties of the past years have sapped a consider- able amount of his suppleness, strength and endurance. This awakening is very apparent ab b E B .. X I I -nn I - x l - 0 t 1' W if I I !- ' S. ff? f I b lzlvx fn 4 . 5 iiif I it if f . '21 H - if' I i E X Www if ' " , 5 - 'I N.

In the time allotted to the subject it is impossible to develop the students into gymnasts or athletes but they do leave in a much better physical condition, and with an incentive to keep up the physical exercise to prevent physical deterioration. The new gymnasium has created an atmosphere that has stimulated the students to exceptional effort. In the past the Physical Training was car- ried on under a diverse condition without bathing or dressing facilities and on the wet ground. Lectures and blackboard talks on the theoretical side of the subject covering aims and purposes of the formal and informal physical training, its administration and its training management are interspersed in the course. Calisthenics and apparatus exercises which can be taken as in bayonet Work enabling the officer to get the maximum exercise, having a direct military bearing during the 30 minute period alloted to the formal instruction in a regiment. No effort to teach intricate evolutions or "stunts" on the ap- paratus is made. The activities that are taught are confined to those most applicable to the military service and within the soldier's reach. Exercises in vaulting, climbing, jumping, hanging, running, personal contact, decision, courage, endurance to develop the soldier physically and to prepare him for field service, predominate. Group games have been arranged and taught progressively, so that an,- officer may be in a position to provide games suited to any type of soldier, and lead the inapt and backward on to games requiring skillful use of all facilities. In addition to the physical benefits derived these games afford considerable recreation. Mass games which enable an officer to control the informal exercise of large groups from 20 to 300 men have been compiled or invented by the Third Section. These games are in great demand especially at the summer camps where the object is to give considerable exercise and organic develop- ment with the elements of bodily contact, team Work and recreation combined. As a means of developing esprit they have no rival. Men will play hard and determined to help their team win in these games as the enthusiasm per- meates to every man. In boxing and Wrestling the instruction, due to the time, is confined to T iffy?

Similarly swimming instruction is confined to demonstrations and lectures. The entire course aims to show the Infantry officer the possibilities and benefits that can be derived from proper application of physical exercise in training and preparing their men to meet the trying conditions and obstacles of field and garrison duties. INFANTRY DRILL Discipline and control constitute the framework of our whole military machine, and the best means of obtaining these qualities is through the medium of close drill. As taught at the Infantry School, this subject has for its aims the perfecting of the student in individual movements and a thorough grounding in methods of instruction. No attempt is made to mould a class into a smooth, well drilled organization. On the contrary, emphasis is placed on the fact that the Infantry Officer must demonstrate and supervise drillg and the course of instruction is accordingly planned to fulfil this need. Work in close-order drill is conducted by conference, demonstration, and practical application, particular stress being given to vocal training, uniform timing of commands, and cadence drill. . ..

V THE INFANTRY BOARD QDRG,-XNIZ.-Yl'l0N AND Fl'NfI'l'IONS 'rj'-gr IHE Infantry Board was provided for as one of the permanent i Boards of the service and its organization was prescribed origin- lg ,S ally by Change No. 22, dated December 15th, 1919, to paragraph 336, Compilation of Orders. At the time Change No. 22 was issued there was no Chief of Infantry, so that prior to the time the Infantry Board was organized there was no provision for a permanent organization or group to which the pro- blems of the infantry might be presented or one Whose sole functions were the improvement of the infantry service. The need for such a Board had existed for a long time and the necessity for it had been demonstrated and more or less recognized by the War De- partment by the detail of Boards of Officers from time to time to consider matters of vital interest to the infantry. These boards were usually composed mainly of Infantry officers and were assembled temporarily to consider specific matters designated in the instructions sent to the Board and beyond which the Board had no province. On completion of this duty the Board was adjourned and years would probably intervene before another was con- vened. One of the most important of these temporary boards was the one known as the Infantry Equipment Board, convened in April 1909 which consisted of five infantry officers and one ordnance officer. The result ofthe Work of this Board was the elimination of the old blanket roll and the adop- tion of the Model 1910 infantry equipment. Some valuable experimental Work had been carried on in connection With machine guns and small arms and the equipment for these weapons at the old School of Musketry. This school, first organized in 1907 at the Presidio of Monterey, California, was later transferred to Fort Sill, Oklahoma, and in 1918 to Fort Benning. Its name in the meantime had been changed in 1917 to The Infantry School of Arms and was subsequently changed early in 1920 to The Infantry School. The Infantry Board as originally provided for was to be permanently stationed at Camp Benning, Georgia, and was to be composed of: The Commandant, The Infantry School, The Assistant Commandant, The Infantry School, 'SW ' '77 '- I "'Q.!Q?g .Www -la u -egg 1 M3 V i f era. if 3 K A ' M EX Three officers to be designated by the War Department and to be assigned, as far as practicable, to organizations stationed at Camp Benning, Georgia. An officer of the Ordnance Department stationed at The Infantry School to be a member of the Infantry Board for the consideration of Ordnance matters only. The purpose of the Board as published at that time was, "to consider such subjects pertaining to Infantry as may be referred to the board by the War Department and to originate and submit to the War Department re- commendations looking to the improvement of the Infantry service." At this time, as mentioned above, there was no Chief of Infantry so the regulations provided that the Infantry Board would operate under the direc- tion of the War Department, but that all communications to and from the Infantry Board were to be sent through the Commandant, The Infantry School. With the designation of a Chief of Infantry by the War Depart- ment the board naturally became a recognized agency of his office. The present regulations covering the organization and functions of the Infantry Board are contained in A. R. 75-10. These regulations provide that the Infantry Board will operate under the direction of the Chief of Infantry and states the purpose of the board is to consider such subjects pertaining to Infantry as may be referred to the Board by the Chief of Infantry and to originate and submit to the Chief of Infantry recommendations looking to the improvement of the Infantry." The membership of the board is to be made up as follows: The Commandant, The Infantry School, The Assistant Commandant, The Infantry School, Not less than three nor more than five officers to be designated by the Chief of Infantry, For the consideration of Ordnance matters only an officer of the Ordnance Department stationed at the Infantry School. The Board at present consists of the Commandant and Assistant Comman- dant of The Infantry School, four Infantry officers as working members of the board and for the consideration of Ordnance matters, an Ordnance officer.

Qcj Infantry Organization. Cdl Miscellaneous-such as work in connection with mobilization projects, review of Training Regulations of other arms in which Infantry would be interested, etc. When a project is received it is assigned to one of the working members of the board for consideration and study. If it is an ordnance project involv- ing technical questions of design or manufacture it is assigned to the Ordnance member or to an Infantry working member to work in conjunction with the Ordnance member. On receipt of the project the working member makes an initial survey to determine what is neccessary for a proper investigation and report on the subject. This includes an examination of all pertinent matters on file in the Infantry Board office or that may accompany papers referred to the Board. From this study the member determines, whether tests are necessary and their general character, whether the subject is one on which the ideas of the appropriate department of the Infantry School should be obtained, whether the use of demonstration troops will be necessary or whether or not the opin- ions of officers on duty with the school troops or as student officers at the school will assist. Appropriate action is taken to secure the cooperation of such of the above as may be appropriate in order that the data on which the study is based may be as complete as possible. Questions pertaining to material involve as a rule a test. Practically all of the tests of the Board are. made by the Department of Experiment under the supervision of the Infantry Board. The Department of Experiment is a branch of the Infantry School but the bulk of its work is done for and under supervision of the Infantry Board. The member of the board in charge of a project attends such part of the tests as may be practicable and certain phases of the more important tests are attended if possible by the entire board. a Q W e '?

A 5'--ye V1 x l. -:A I 4fdi. of 'ig 3, fl' 'NY - 1 N gk For tests or demonstrations that involve the use of troops the Commanding Officer of the proper demonstration troops is consulted and arrangements are made through him for the necessary cooperation. Questions pertaining to Infantry Organization, training and tactics are, as a rule, referred through the Assistant Commandant to the proper depart- ment of the Infantry School for the views and recommendations of the appro- priate departments of the school. These opinions are reviewed in the office of the Assistant Commandant to insure coordination before return to the Infantry Board. Minor questions are covered by informal conference of the Working member of the board with such instructor specialists as may have special knowledge of the subject under investigation. During the progress of the tests or while awaiting comments from the school or other sources the member in charge makes such other study of the subject as is practicable. On receipt of the Report of Test and such other opinions as may have been requested, the study is completed. A tentative report for the action of the entire board is then drawn up in which are given a brief statement of the subject, a statement of the salient facts in the case, and a statement of the opinions of the board with appropriate conclusions and recommendations. Regular meetings of the board are held every Tuesday. In addition to the regular members of the board the Director of the Department of Experi- ment and the Commanding Officer of the 29th Infantry are always present at these meetings. As a rule specialists in the subjects to be considered are also present at the meeting to give the full board such information as the members may desire. After approval or modification by the full board the papers including Report of Test, if any, are forwarded to the Chief of In- fantry. The presence of the Commandant and the Assistant Commandant of the Infantry School on the Infantry Board insures that there will be coordination between the work of the board and that of the Infantry School. Personnel of the Infantry School is kept informed of such recommendations of the Infantry Board as may interest them and also of such action as may be taken on these recommendations by higher authority. The number of projects before the board naturally varies but usually it averages between 40 and 50 projects on the live file. Some of these involve test or investigation that require several months.

SERVICE COOPERATION As the studies and investigations made by the board cover such a broad field, it is manifest that the board can not perform its functions with the desired efficiency except by effective cooperation on the part of all Infantry- men. At Fort Benning the board has available for consultation a large number of officers of varied experience in the faculty and student body of the Infantry School and among the commissioned personnel on duty with the school troops. This personnel includes a large number of officers who have been selected for their expert knowledge or special qualifications for the work on which they are engaged. The Infantry Board takes full advantage of the opportunities for consultation, advice and valuable cooperation thus made possible. The assistance of all these agencies has always been of material aid to the board in preparing its recommendations or conclusions. The board encourages and Welcomes suggestions from any person fofficer, enlisted man or civilianj who is interested in the Infantry. Much valuable assistance has been received from these sources in the past that has been highly appreciated by the board. All officers may be assured that any proposals submitted will receive careful thought and consideration and whether your ideas are adopted or not, recommendations will be made that proper notations be made on your military record and official recognition 'Wg pgs? 111 5' 21 9 gg -6 W 5 , . r. p ls, vi? 46- A ill -la ,X ll ,FJ f f i dm. -u Q- ' . J A: be given for all work of this kind that may be performed. No doubt valu- able suggestions occur to many officers who, through modesty, fail to give the service the benefit of these ideas. Officers are urged to study and develop any ideas they may have for improvement of the Infantry, and give the service the benefit. Both the service and the individual will derive benefit from any such study. All proposals or suggestions from personnel located at points other than Fort Benning should be sent to the Chief of Infantry. When the Infantry Board was originally organized, General Farnsworth, who was then President of the Board, sent a memorandum and letter to the commanding officer of each infantry brigade, regiment and machine gun bat- talion, urging cooperation with the board and asking that the contents of the memorandum be called to the attention of all officers of their organiza- tions. The letter and memorandum are published in full in the Infantry Journal for june 1920. General Orders 112, War Department, 1919, covers the subject of Military Education in the Army. In paragraph 4 of that order it states: "It will be the constant aim of all concerned to improve and perfect the methods employed. With this end in view, officers of all grades shall be encouraged to submit proposals for improvements in methods or char- acter of instruction through proper channels to the War Department. These proposals will receive careful consideration by superiors, and their action thereon will be such as to encourage initiative upon the part of their subordinates and to make certain that no proposals of merit escape recognition." The principle contained in the foregoing paragraph applies with equal force to suggestions for the improvement of the Infantry Service. Progress is always necessary if we are to keep abreast of development and-progress in other nations and have our arm of the service properly prepared to play' its part in the national defense. This progress which is vital to efficiency cannot be maintained except by the earnest cooperation of all infantrymen. iff. ow ' it fr 'vii' - , .

In furtherance of this policy this, the Refresher Class of 1923 was born. On October 15th, we, ten colonels of infantry reported to the Command- ant of the School for a 10 weeks course thus making 100 colonel weeks. After many trials and tribulations, hard knocks? and stimulations, We com- pleted our studies on December 15th, received our diplomas and the plaudits if ELllUll',S note.

That the whole course was well planned and carried out, that the sub- jects were presented so as to be not only instructive, but of the greatest value in fitting for the command and training of various and respective units, in assisting us to overcome obstacles which had heretofore seemed insurmountable, is the consensus of opinion of the entire class. It is believed that the policy is sound, that it not only brings senior officers down to date and furnishes them with a unit of measure on which they may base their training programs, but it also enables them to better understand the importance and objects of the Infantry School, the character of its instruction, and furthermore acquaints them with just what may be expected and exacted of all Infantry School graduates.: We were instructed along right lines by qualified instructors. If we put into practice the lessons we have learned, our organizations will profit greatly thereby and are bound to be efficient and trained along the sarne lines as are organizations with which our units will fight a common enemy, Infantry training be made uniform and successful, and teamplay in- sured. if Instructors, Ativnnccd :uni Cmmipany Officurs class 2l'llllll,lIC5 Lilac notice.

He expired shortly thereafter without heing indentified. Nothing was found on his person but at few papers containing 11 strange tale, which is printed below. "In the late Summer of the fourth year of the great drought, there descended upon the town of Columbus on the Chattahoochee river, a motley horde. Whence they came the natives knew not. But the older inhabitants, who are wise in tradition and prolific in prophecy, told me that it was a strange people, of Whom part would journey on beyond never to be seen again. That a part would scatter among the dwellings of the settlement to be seen only in the early morning by the thrifty husbandman delivering the milk from his faithful cow, and in the late evening by the village lamp-lighter as he made his accustomed rounds. I, being Without habitation and a wanderer upon the face of the Earth, but withal of an enquiring mind, followed this roving band that I might observe its curious doings and leave to posterity a strange narrative over which to ponder. STOP They came, not as a swarm of locusts Z? which moves as the wind listeth, but from 1 M, - many directions and employing many means Q Er, 1-. - rf-'Z of locomotion: Some in magnificent chariots, I W- Q and others heralding their approach in the ' MT "alll -Q, :fp Xvehicles of their forefathers, which had by Iggifbaling Wire and loving hands been kept to- ' "TSX ' i' gether until the journey's end.

Those blessed with the comradeship of their womenfolk seemed most oppressed as though wonder- ing if the Avenging Angel had not chosen the wrong object in giving peace to the souls of their trusty steeds. But when the moon had arisen peace reigned in the village, and the quiet was broken only by the chuckles of the landlord. Next day as the Sun arose in all his glory and covered with his cone of fire a beaten zone which seemed without limit, this tribe which was loosely knit and without a leader, abandoned all thought of remaining longer in the town and wended its weary way along a dusty trail, whither I knew not. But I followed, keeping at a respectful distance that I might be free from moles- tation and able to retire should they be suddenly engulfed by that which their expressions seemed to fear. And slow and ever slower grew their pace. As the sun rose higher in the heavens and my feet be- came weary from endeavoring to follow the contour I had chosen as mine, I was reward- ed with a beautiful vision. Upon a prominence beyond the stream which I learned was the Upatoi, there suddenly ap- peared a feudal village, color- ful as an artist's painting and magnificent in its old world charm. I hastened my stride, as did those before me, with H1 'I l l fi ' ' " ' I J 2 I l l J in 1 if 911156,-"fix Illll Q I fm L,.. sr... .... ?gQJb3X:x:: Wwwuixril W UH ti'-1 if-jj 22,58-ff.QEj' ijf'f.,,,:t'qffZL.7Z,i' x""' I-.fhfz.Li,, hs Wm my eye ever on the Manor which I rightfully surmisecl was the seat of the. Baron who held sway over this village and vast estate. And a fitting seat it was, with its ancient galleries where gentlemen of old were wont to take their ease sipping nectar and ambrosia, and watching the dainty squirrels garnboling on the green. Ah, had those squirrels known the feast that was being prepared for them how prodigal they would have been. Half way to the top of the plateau I casually glanced to the right, and thought myself in fairyland. In a sylvan dell there glistened a pool of sur- prising brilliance, its shores bedecked by nymphs of such transcendent beauty enhanced by the sweet simplicity of their raiment, as to hold me in ecstasy until a rude swain at my side uttered the strange jargoni 'Aint nature grand'.

N' Axz f ligliiglgu-B'i The spell was broken and I again directed my progress toward the Manor, the charm of which had now somehow diminished. Being now left somewhat in rear I waited for the next maneuver of that motley crew. And I had not long to wait, though their actions were' contrary to my expectations. I had anticipated hostilities, and was greatly surprised to see them met by well mannered young men Whose habilment was greatly brightened by what appeared in the distance to be pink breeches. Their foot gear I easily recognized as having been made by one rind of London. And these young gallants led my people into an out-house situated on the edge of the Manor grounds. Now I was sure 'twas an ambush, for they came out one by one, each dropping in a metal receptacle with a disappointed and disgusted look, the little blue object he had carried in his hand so carefully all the way from the village. This I had taken for some unusual imple- ment of war, since each treasured his so jealously. But as I saw them looking closely at these on the way along the trail: muttering and looking heaven- ward, I concluded 'twas some form of prayer book or the Koran. I was more bewildered when I took one from the refuse can and read in large letters on its cover: 'Informationf I now noticed for the first time the hovels of the vassals situated a re- spectful distance in the rear of the Manor.

But these vassals seemed not ill con- tent, and I actually observed much merri- ment among them. And I noticed too, a number had provided themselves with round crystals with which old men are Y wont to read small print. But these men al were not old, nor were they using these crystals for their accustomed purpose, but rather focusing the rays of the sun upon the necks of their fellows in front. And oft they slapped at what they no doubt thought were large insects of the locality. My attention was attracted a little fur- ther down the line by hearing someone called "Admiral," and at this I marvelled, since I had seen neither ships nor sea. I made bold to approach this sailor-like per- son, and enquired what 'twas all about. And he told me a strange tale. "We are learning to squeeze the triggerv he said. And I asked: "Have you nothing to squeeze but triggers?,' But he uttered a strange nautical expression and turned away. When I next saw them there was little merriment and their actions were most strange. Each had in front of him a small board, upon which he from time to time made curious curves, and rubbed them out as fast as he made them. They all moved, with no apparent reason, from place to place, keeping however always near three large circular objects which I later learned were tanks. Upon looking further I discovered a bookish person wearing spectacles and an intelligent air, with neither board nor occupation. I approached him that I might learn the reason for the strange conduct of all about me. And he told me they were searching for contours to place upon a drawing of the local- ity. At this I rnarvelled, since he held in his hand a drawing which he consult- ed from time to time as if it were of the particular locality. So Iemade bold to 1 - be -W 5 , . ,Z i N w V 41" I 4 X WS r ill ,1 - fi r ! ., I. L' N : ,. 1 E JIM. nd dl X 0 l , Ag 1924- oousuaov ask: "Have you no drawing of this locality?" "Most certainly" said he "But these people are being taught to draw here, that they may apply their knowledge elsewhere." "And are there other places which have no drawings and none Whose Q if profession requires them to supply such de- CJ Q ficiency?" "There are no such places" he X Q said "But these vassals must learn to draw :. J 1 maps that they may then read those which Xxlffa :Axim others have drawn." ' This seemed strange to r ....Z' me, and I asked him if they were also to learn Y . . . l 3 to write books that they might 1n turn read those which others had written. He answered me not, but gave me a withering look and passed on. In my minglings with the members of this tribe, who had now come to speak more freely in my presence, I heard an oft repeated word which seemed to spread consternation among them and cause them to tremble and grow white around the gills. This was the word "Monograph" which I learned was a speech each must make, and in it display his knowledge of some part of the jousting in Europe during the last years of the reign of Wilhelm. Soon thereafter, one bright Saturday morning, I followed to the upper story of a disconsolate looking building in the village, and there I found them all assembled, hushed and stilled at the sound of a small whistling device wielded by one called King Alfred. This person I learned was no king in reality, though regal in bearing, but had been selected by the clan as their leader to trans- O ' mit their desires to the Baron, and protect i them from oppression. And right nobly he J performed these delicate tasks. 'S A A D w And now there mounted the rostrum X E Q one of the tribe, with polished brass but shak- get fk ing limbs and ashen face as though the very f X 1 W thought of that which he was about to relate had torn and shaken his soul until nocturnal repose had long since fled. And he spoke at Vg I fx length with much learning, pinning the while -g- QSJ XX red and blue arrows at various places upon "-'A "" l -1? a large drawing, which seemed to be con- FTA l 'M i v-Q -.15-e " " , , If 's, 1-vi 4"- f x 4 'iff' ll Jr-W , 1 - 1 ri, , X fl-Ll A -X Lx A f km ansov .mp structed without thought of harmony of color or shape or direction of lines, since they all ran askew and the East was like the West. I knew not his theme, though greatly interested, and was much surprised when a dignified and learned looking gentleman in the rear of the hall held up a commanding hand and called "Time." At this the orator bowed meekly, and amid the plaudits of his auditors, retired to his seat. He was followed by another of his kind, who spoke with less learning but more hurriedly, and retired before the commanding person in the rear could raise his hand. With fear and trembling I approached this austere stranger and enquired of him why one had been permitted to leave the rostrum of his own volition, while the other had been given, what I had described, but did not understand, as the "hook." And he told me that less than one half an hour was the greatest time one was permitted in which to tell all he knew. This greatly puzzled rne, and I asked him if great learning did not require a greater space of time for its revelation than less learning? Strangely he agreed with me, but ventured the opinion that much knowledge could be expressed in few words if one knew what not to say. "Then isn't silence evidence of supreme knowledge?" I queried, but he turned away in disgust. Many days I pondered over the strange things I had seen and heard, till one bright day I wandered over the Western hills to ease my mind in communing with nature. And all was at peace. Suddenly I was aroused from my revery by a great noise as though hail were falling upon a roof. I looked in the valley below me, and the sight froze the blood in my veins. There be- fore me had been herded all the members of this tribe, their faces sunk in despair, while above them their keepers turned upon them murderous look- ing three legged weapons, which spat innumerable quantities of burning missiles. My heart sank within me, for I knew that my people were doomed. But such was not to be. Suddenly a miracle was wrought and they walked, nay, ran forth from the valley of death whole in body, tossing their head pieces high in air in token of their joy at such timely deliverance. I saw them many times in the days that followed and they seemed bright and ever cheerful as though their troubles were soon forgotten. Verily, thought I, these be a strange people, with thick hides and short memories. But soon I found them downcast again, as they came slowly, slowly from the rear door of their grooming room, each pondering over blue letters of their 2 gd' 'I - ' -la O x' x 5 WPW ii-4 I f J Q ii -- " 3. .

But they bore up with a right good will and appeared thankful that 'C's and 'D's were still articles of issue. In a little while I saw them no more: That is for some days. I learned that they had all been granted a respite over the Yuletide, and right merrily they spent their freedom, as was related to me sometime later by one Judge Munro. When I next beheld them my spirits rose, for there were my brave fellows mounted upon fleet steeds, ready to be off and away from their bondage. But upon approaching closer, their faces bore no look of triumph, as I had expected to find, but had rather strained and uncertain expressions as though wondering whether it were not the part of wisdom to seek the com- fort of mother earth in a per- pendicular posture rather than Q 6 wait for an uncertain event- Q MXN Q9 j ta if 1 9 . 9 x uality. But these brave fel-XZ MY- 9f I.2XEmL iK- lows were one and all'of sport- J A Q ing instincts, and Qected to T remain aloft. As they jour- 5 neyed along the trail slowly, X at first, I observed many changes of mind. And I thought me many times that they were somewhat influenced by the desires of the beasts they rode. Some had no sooner left the barrier than they disappeared midst clouds of dust and returned not. Others thought better of their first resolutions, and right quickly severed all relations with their mounts, which seemed not loath to be rid of their burdens. I even thought they assisted in some degree. They all returned in time however, even those which had departed most rapidly. And all nursed and seemed to favor their posterior extremities, even to the extent of standing when invited to sit. This was unusual, since heretofore I had not known them to stand when any other posture could be adopted. And thereafter for several days I observed them standing at ease with their hands behind them, as they had. previously been advised to do. It now being the dead of winter and the atmosphere quite moist and chill, my people were led to the Western part of the estate and set at a most un- 1- f 'qi' f' " .VW xy 'ill la i- f I " I , Q t , ,xv :in N .n L -W X 2 AQ - 9924 nous:-qaov - usual task. They seemed for all the world to be waging a bitter war against a phantom foe, with an imaginary army. And right gallantly they fought along Cook Ridge, sometimes driving the enemy to Riley Ridge, and quite as often being in turn driven back to Maxey Ridge. Much I marvelled at a war of so few casualties lasting so long a time. Verily the Springtime with its azure skies and blossoms, found them still fighting gallantly, though somewhat exhausted. During this long period of hostilities I noticed from time to time certain superior beings mingling with these people, though plainly not of them. They seemed constantly to enter certain hieroglyphics in closely guarded port- folios, asking the while most embarrassing questions, the answers to which came forth reluctantly, as though the person questioned rather hoped that some other would be unable to contain himself and answer. But when these people asked questions themselves, there was little embarrassment and there was no end. I noticed now a meek member of the tribe with a large red apple pin- ned to his breast. This puzzled me muchly and I enquired the reason for this mark of distinction above his fel- lows. I found him to belong to the "Order of the Red Applef' member- ship in which was bestowed upon those who loved their teacher most, and displayed their affections. I was given to understand that membership was not widely sought, though rich- ly deserved. I now looked about me with re- newed interest and discovered for the first time two other members strange- ly decorated, but who bore their dis- tinction with no outward semblance of pride. One had a large question T.-ff 1? tg-Jig, . ish, f Xxx-A Mx gf-suv ffsg, till ii' .ml A U Z wx- mmm. 6 Mg, lllri In , 1 i 00 Q J "Z qi' -f 5 ' i fx 51-Q 7 I4 x limp A LQ, -F' ' ' . l924- DOUGH BOY fs' ,, f' -ff 1- .J 'r - ILM: A X A l A 1 mark, made of some base metal and also of a ruddy hue. This I learned was an unusual order, with a decoration known as the "Croix de Questionnaire." This was conferred upon the member of the tribe asking the greatest number of questions. How the selection was made I could not understand, for all seemed most deserving. The other strange badge I noticed, consisted of an unusual headgear, which I immediately identified as a brown hat, known to the ancients as a Brown Derby. And in this I was correct, for this was the emblem of the order of that name. This was conferred upon the member who most successfully resisted the introduction of knowledge. Here again I was at a loss, and questioned the head keeper that he might advise me privately as to the limited membership in the order. He was most kind, and said: "Don't men- tion it, but the Assistant Commandant has ordered seventy-one for distribu- tion in May. And so the battle raged on through the fleeting spring with never a sign of abatement, though I had not yet seen the enemy. And my people became most weary of hurrying hither and yon, and sat them down 'neath the refresh- ing shade of the fragrant pines whenever occasion presented itself. And sometimes when it did not. And the carolling of the birds and the murmur- ing brook sent them into reveries of days that were, and built hopes for those to come. One day in the late Spring I was saddened to see all these my people, loaded with their pitiful possessions upon the miniature train, which travels at times between their place of servitude and their habitations. To see them separated from their loving families and transported whence I knew not, and to be parted from them myself, was more than my emotions could withstand, and I smuggled myself aboard that I might still observe their doings and perchance be of some assistance. Great was my happiness when the journey proved short. Upon disem- barking, I found myself still within the confines of the estate, and at the entrance of a quite homelike bivouac. Here all had been made ready for a stay of some duration which I learned was to be six days. This proved to be a maneuver camp, the same being for the purpose of testing the skill the i 2 an Q it? 5 ' 5 J -.f L 7, flu 5 W' 'JJ tx, vi" is" 'W l lll' 1 -,.. .- f QQ 'S f d X26 N-.

And right aptly they performed with the implements at hand. The enemy evidently still haunted them, for they went forth early each morning, their faces set with a determination to do or die. And each eventide returned more dejected than ever. Now I noticed a spirit of unrest more pronounced than had appeared before. But this did not apply to all, but rather to those who failed to re- ceive the strange missives which were being daily distributed. And that all might see, these were posted upon a large board in the center of the camp. Being curious to know their meaning, I read, as best I could, and now enter in this journal the Words I deciphered: "Aloe"-to Ft. Benning as Commandant. 'Clark'-to Ft. Benning as instructor in Scouting and Patrolling. 'Philpot' to London as Attache. 'Hoop'-to Ft. Benning as Instructor in Equitation. 'Lang'-to Rand McNally as Map Salesman.

'Hitchcock' Shooting MOOSE in Alaska, 'Farrel' raising red apples, 'Rice' raising goats. if :ii if And many more which the fading light prevented my reading. And too soon the little train appeared to move the tribe back to the village. This had been a pleasant journey, and the enemy seemed routed. Even the keepers and attendants mingled freely with the people, but with sad expressions as if they too would fain go hence.

The squirrels, now grown too plump to gambol, basked lazily in the sunlight, as though contemplating a lean Summer but another feast in the Fall. I strained my ears to hear the words of wisdom that fell from the lips of the speaker but could make nothing of them, save a peculiar phrase which seemed to be: "Don't be a Honey Sucker." As the strains of that soul stirring march, "The Parade of the Wooden Soldiers," wafted into silence, they gathered their belongings to them and took themselves away. Whither I knew not, but all bore smiles and happy expressions upon their faces. Whether from recollection or anticipation, I could not say." . f' I Q ill 1 ' Xf illwfi N 1.7 ' l',r"', M as , . r' Kr: 1' e -- -' ' , ' 2 'I 1 , , A I I, I K -+ Ti! y - ff Q 95 XX N' li- l ill x I gi? it ,N 'it ' iJ - ' I '- N Ji gl i r K ., If it me wgx Y 'icing i K e e H Alix xi I Qty ml.1v7'.g xx, It ff? page alll-in If H.-fi renifi1"Lc' are I A wr 4' 9, J x 1924 oousua YD X x ..

Louis FARRELL Major, Izzfazzrry Louie UD0N,T YoU-ALL UNDERSTAND A THINGH LOUIS sprang into prominence years since as a Corporal in the 9th Infantry during the Philip- pine Insurrection. He started the ball rolling again on July l9th, 1918, but shortly thereafter a German Snip- er had some good luck with Louis. All necessary now is to show him a "Made in Germany" ad. and something happens. Louis loves dogs and bird hunting and that makes him popular with us. FELIX EMMANUELLI Major, Ifzfrmtry Manual EMMANUELLI came here an experienced topo- grapher, but as most of his work had been in Oklahoma and Texas he was unprepared for the rough terrain of Benning.

ELVERTON ELMER FULLER Lien! Colonef, Infarztry Hub "I I1EsIcN" ROTUND and positive. Can ride hard and swear harder. Can manage the finances of the Annual and at the same time work out a training schedule to a Queen's taste. Never so happy as when immersed in figures up to his neck or "panning" some beloved regimental commander. We are sorry Hub is firmly resolved to quit when his thirty years are completed. He is beyond doubt the most even tempered man in the Army, he al- ways has an apparent grouch which is really a cloak tu his unfailing good nature. WILLIANI HANSON GILL Maj01', Infantry Bill "WI-IERE IS BOUOHTON ?" -BILL began the war as lan M.

We understand that somewhere back in his dim past he got real loquacious and after he had been properly subdued--after thc entire family had been called into consultation-after his con- versation had been elaborated it was decided that he had said "Hell," and thus began the career of a great orator. RUSSELL PETER HARTLE Major, Infantry Scrappy KSADDER BUDVVEISERU BETWEEN Scrappy and Silbert no instructor ever feels safe. Between these two birds sits his Majesty, Satan himself, who dictates and Scrappy must know shorthand. They keep him in the back of all assembly halls so he can yell "attention" when Kincade returns after the ten minute breakg if he dues. ROY ALISON HILL Major, Infantry Old Soldier THE Old Soldier was some strategist-he doped each range from the Infirmary by map, speck- ed same and afterwards found out he had used the wrong scale.

Arrived last night from New York, after a hot, disagreeable, and cindery trip. Cou1dn't sleep at the hotel because ofthe heat, and M3 spent three nickels running the electric fan, but in vain. Took T breakfast downstairs, sliced oranges, hot cakes, and coffee, broke the law of Georgia by giving the black waiter a dimeg then went out to look over the town. Met Davy Crockett whom I saw last in a blizzard at Devens in 1920, and talked over the happy days when the steam pipes froze in our quarters and the snow was five feet deep on the ground. Took the bus to Fort Benning, and saw much dry ground, two creeks, cotton fields, tumble- down shacks, and pine woodsg and the fort looming up on the hills above the river. The first impression is that of a reformed cantonment of the vintage of '17, Reported at headquarters, and was told to come back next Monday. Rode back to Columbus with an auto salesmang he told me a car is a necessity here, and I mentioned that my Rolls Royce is being shipped from Singapore, and that I also owned a 1920 Ford .... Had lunch at a tea room, and can't see how the waitresses in such a hot climate manage to keep their com- plexions.

September 28-Today hotter than yesterday. Hotel full of officers, mostly captains, and their wives and children. Went out riding with another auto salesman, then an insurance man, and after that an agent who rents houses. Bought a Columbus paper: much ado on the front page about one Stribling and a champion of sorts, "Mike" McTigue. Also took a couple of magazines from the news stand: the Atlantic Monthly and the Police Gazette. Lunch at tea room: waitresses rather cute but kittenish. Slept all afternoon. Going to the movies tonight. October 1-Reported officially at Benning, filled out a paper with in- teresting details of my previous life and was assigned to a company. Nothing on the schedule until Thursday. Morale high. October 4-Given my place in the company today, a responsible position in the rear rank. Had to draw a lot of property, two rifles, a bayonet and scabbard, a pistol, two belts, a canteen, a cleaning rod, field glasses, a clip- board, a clinometer, two compasses, and a sketching case with more trick things inside than a man could count in a month of Sundays. The only place to store the paraphernalia is a bathing suit locker, but darned if I see how. October 6-Lectures all morning, the mysteries of the monograph ex- plainedg the first shadow falling over the course. The subjects haven't been assigned yet, sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.-We have pistol, grenades and bayonet all next week. October 12-Finished pistol range firing this afternoon. Can't say that I'm in the class of Wild Bill Hickok, or Whispering Smith, but I managed to rate sharpshooter. Six more bobbers and I'd have crossed the expert line, but my hand got shaky at fifty yards. Heard one of the class whooping like an Indian when he finished his last score. "I made it! I made it!" he kept yelling. "Make expert?', Somebody asked. "Naw, marksmanj said he- The pistol is gone, but like the poor, the bayonet is always with us. Somehow or other, the spirit of the bayonet, the overmastering determination to rush the enemy and carve him into gory scraps of meat, the insatiable craving for blood, is absent from my make-up. I just haven't a liking for the "cold steel." It must be an acquired taste, like celery or limburger cheese. i - if-g. ,lacy if -Ea' gi , N, was 4. yw QQ-u Int Ja- A . xl ,J 35 M fl -,' li. i n.: -r Q A - 924 DOUGHBOY A The bayonet court is a jolly place, full of cunning little trenches, shell holes, hurdles, and whatnots, with dummies scattered about, all touched up with spots of red paint. The dummies are hung around in all sorts of im- possible locations, or down in the bottom of a trench, and the game is: "Try and hit 'em!" If you keep your bayonet out of your own foot, and don't run yourself to death, you're lucky! We've been throwing live grenades this week, and today one came back into our squad bay. In ten seconds you couldn't have assembled the squad by radio! October 25-Rifle range now, all day, every day. It's great stuff, when the sun is warm, and there's nothing to do but fire a few scores, and then lie around and swap yarns until it's time to clean the old Springfield and climb onto the narrow gauge. I'd be supremely happy, if it wasn't for my con- founded monograph next month. The marking system is new this year. There used to be a scramble for tenths of a point and no speaking to your best friend before an exam, but this year it is merely a matter of the alphabet. "AH-in the Benning primer stands for SUPERIOR, the NE PLUS ULTRA of scholastic ability, the watch-me-I'ma-whizz complex, of General Staff caliber, and that sort of thing. "B" is along the same line, but not so standoffish. Quite good enough to tell your wife, or Willie when you spank him for not being a shining light in the kindergarten. "C" is next, an average conservative, middle-class kind of a mark. Then follows "D", below the satisfactory line. It doesn't quite ruin you, but it's a moral lapse that may lead to worse things later in life. And, oh, my dear, "EH, of course, is utterly impossible!

I heard two "red-apple" boys talking about the papers we got back yesterday. One said: "I got an "A', what'd you get?" and the answer was: "I got the same as you got, you lying son of a gun!" November 6-Rifle firing over. We shot for record, yesterday and today, with the expert total boosted at the last minute from 293 to 300, and a darned fishtail wind blowing at 500 and 600 yards. I crawled over the 300 line, with the help of the Lord and a lucky guess at 500 rapid. Morale high. November 7-Scouting and Patrolling today, the wood lore of the scout, smearing mud over your face, and hiding behind a chinaberry bush. The first batch of monographs come tomorrow: a reminder that mine is only two Weeks off. Looked over my list of references for "Knockemoffski's Offensive" Qmy subjectjg there are forty-two books, seventeen pamphlets, and eighty- seven articles in service magazines-Read one hour at the library tonight, and took notes. November 8-The first of the monographs this morning. Recipe for success: wear your best coat and a pair of pink breeches, lean on the pointer, have at least two maps with pretty ink lines to keep the class awake watch- ing themg then talk for thirty minutes. There was generous applause' every thirty minutes, on the "live and let live" policy. Got to hand it to the boys for putting out on their subjects. Laid off the movies tonight, and read for two hours. Finished Knockemoffski's "The General Staff and its Indecision," and took four pages of notes. ' November 10-More "Sneaking and Peeking" today. Tore the back out of my shirt crawling in the barbed wire, and skinned one hand with a wire cutter. Learned all about climbing a tree and sniping, this afternoon.-Read for three hours tonight in Field Marshal Limberger's "Raus mit Einsf' The Marshal calls Knockernoffski' a cheat, a liar, a bum general, and a fourteen- syllable word that I can't translate. Threw away my first notes and made some new ones. This monograph proposition isn't as easy as it looks. Morale falling. November 12-More monographs this morning, but didn't hear a word.

It all looks like blazes, but I left the map on the wall, and maybe it will seem better tomorrow. Read four hours tonight. Read Knockemoffskils book on Ivanovitch QIQZOD, and Ivanovitch's "Knockemoffski as I Know Him Now" Q1921j. Haven't written a line of the monograph yet. Instructors seem to think we haven't a thing to do, and keep piling on the work. Morale pretty darned low. November 26-Went to the movies last night, went again tonight, and haven't cracked a book for three days. With the monograph out of the Way, I feel like a new man. Mine came fourth, and until my turn, I felt like the principal attraction at an open-air execution, but once I opened my mouth, I felt fine.

The "Drill and Be Damned" course is taking an hour every morning, and we haven't got beyond the school of the soldier. We work in pairs-the coach and dumbbell method-and the tests start in a few days. The sketching course has also begun, and it's going to be hard sledding. Among other little things to keep us working, there has been a musketry exam. Speaking of musketry, one day on the range, the in- structor called out: "Any officer with experience in trap shooting, report over here." A snappy looker from the end of the company, with spurs and pink breeches, strutted out to the instructor. Our Captain was back in a minute, his face as red as his shoulder insignia. "Hell," he muttered, "I thought he said crap shooting!" December 17--One week to go, and then ten days of vacation. We caught six hours straight in platoon tactics todayg the Reds from Alabama and the Georgia Blues fought four different battles over the same ground. Our class is getting playful. An officer next to me at noon pulled a snake instead of a ham sandwich out of his lunch box. I hope there isn't any loose TNT around the reservation. I was studying on the narrow gauge this morning, and somebody set a match to my paper just as I came to the Gumps. Dirty dog! December 22-School out for twelve days. Back in October I planned to spend the whole vacation at Palm Beach: a month ago I changed it to three days in Atlantag and now I'm going to stay the whole time in Columbus. Well, a vacation is a vacation. january 8-Exam in sketching today. I was the last one to turn in my sketch, and the only thing right about it was the code number in the corner. A fat hound vvaddled after me While I was trying to draw my map, and everybody asked me if I was using a contour dog. January 17-The "Drill and Be Damnedv course finished today. There are no mourners. The monographs are over, too, but we have machine guns now. Some of them have been issued to studentsg one took his home to Columbus, and the landlady fainted. Captain Egbert jones reports that his son Aloysius got licked in school at Columbus last Week for saying that Sherman was a greater general than Lee.

I hate these four hour periods of lecturesg I never could sleep in a folding chair. The sergeant at the library told me yesterday that the Commandant had ordered him to report any officer who asked for a book after the monograph season. i The annual physical examination is over, which is a pity, as they helped to fill in our Wednesday and Saturday afternoons. February 6-The annual Benning officers' beauty show is over. Today we donned our festive raiment and paraded before the general, who told the rating officer in whispers what he thought of us. A patch of rust on my saber scabbard seemed to fascinate him, and he said a word that sounded like "Inferior," but it couldn't have been. He told one captain to draw saber, and the hilt came off. February 16-Physical Torture has started-who's afraid of the "Red Ace?" Had my finger prints taken last Wednesday afternoon, after stand- ing in line for an hour and a half. Students who know say that the service is much quicker at Joliet and Sing Sing. Saw the field officers' class riding yesterday. Evidently the forward saddle slant and the double post are coming in again.

The entire time until Wednesday morning was spent by the newly arrived officers in getting located in their new quarters and trying to make themselves comfortable, also disillusioning themselves of the belief that Georgia is always sunny as the Atlanta Sunday Journal would have persons in other parts of the globe believe. Floundering through mud and rain on Monday the new men began gathering their equipment together. Many Reserve and some National Guard Officers who arrived in civilian clothes made a raid on the Sales Quarter- master to complete their equipment. Next day, just when the Q. M. thought the rush was over, the whole bunch found that dress boots were regulation for all officers off duty and hearing that dress boots could be bought at the Q. M. for S18.00, another rush started. Then came the final assault on the store when "E" Company got orders to bloom out in coveralls. Immediately the Q. M. began keeping the store open only during school hours which greatly reduced his troubles, as there were only ten minute rests between classes and a three hour penalty for being late to one class. At once a spirit of good fellowship was noticeable among the regular Army officers on the post and through the medium of smokers and receptions the new class felt at home in a few days. The two most outstanding things in the minds of the officers were the extreme and sincere cordiality extended at General and Mrs. Wells' reception and the good fellowship displayed at the smoker given by the members of the Advanced and Company Officers Classes.

Jizz-2-,gg-A X 4 FX' sfhifl- nouenso EK These led the junior class to realize that they were important cogs in the United States Military machinery, and created a great amount of morale. Immediately the new class realized that they were associating with the best officers in the Army and pride in uniform sprang up. Men discarded their old civilian style of hair cuts and blossomed out in neat short military cuts, all but one. Then as school went on, social functions drew more attentifrn. At each of these the feeling of welcome was impressed more deeply in the minds of the short course men until many left the Southland with great regret. Every day the same instructors appeared before classes. The noticeable thing to the student officers was that all seemed to have a keen interest in putting things over and making them clear. This added greatly to the pleasure of the work. . Athletics later sprang up in which the students took great interest. All members of the class returned to their homes with a new View as their mission and a desire to put the stuff over as they had learned it. , xf I '.x. sl ,fnxx ,r 5! - f. .-,-- in -W 1. ,i7x,i'g: h , , , If x Q' , , ff :ng - A " 'FK 1 " , N ,gf ' ,KC r, t ., ,.ggff.,,f Z-, j f J: If I. fill , 17 .740 ally K ,uf W 521314 .V .

I, consecutive year launched its representative athletic teams into the campaign for sporting honors in the realm of southern col- legesg and in each instance they once more represented the In- fantry in southern college athletic sports with honor and with credit. lt Facing the longest, most strenuous, and best arranged schedule in football ever attempted at the school, the athletic authorities began in the sweltering month of August to assemble prospective candidates. At the completion of this assembly for practice it was noted that not one f f member of the varsity team of 1922 was present. I' f However, such splendid soldier athletes as Davis, p ' Lapine, Steelman, Daniels, Sharpe, Swantic, Sanlo- -fp.-: wich, and Kjelstrom, who had served honorably as scrubs, were on handg and for the first time in The In- fantry School athletic his- tory enlisted men furnished the nucleus for the varsity team. Dwyer, Douthit and Stew- art, who had "prepped" at West Point, enlisted for a commission. The Company Officers' Class furnished ex- cellent material for the squad in Ankcorn, Boat- wright, Halsey, Fortier, Gor- man, McKenna, Reed, and Neff. The remainder of the squad was composed of sol- diers who graduated from intra-mural football. The Y MILBLIRN ZELLARS E' to 'S I F 1 lu ,sf 4 x nb 1- I . ,nf 4719.

While the won and lost column indicates a poor season, to those who witnessed The Infantry School battles in 1923 there will ever be a memory of the best fighting team yet produced by the battling Doughboys down by the Upatoi. Starting with a win from Piedmont they then lost to Spring Hill by one point. The first game on foreign soil went to Mercer by one touch down- the best played game of the whole season in which Sharpe was the main offensive factor for the Infantry. Returning for the next fray, Wofford Col- lege was victor in a heart breaking contest by the one point route. A journey to Auburn marked the third occasion when The Infantry School was forced to bow to the colors of Orange and Blue in football. Then came the North Georgia Agricultural College which was soundly thrashed in the Infantry back yard. Carson and Newman, in a hard fought affair, defeated the In- fantry eleven as did Oglethorpe University. Now came a real come-back- the heavy fighting Marine team failing to do the expected and being turned back from the Southern Service Championship for the second time by the Doughboys. The post-season game with the University of Mississippi Went to the University by a small score. The features of the squad's performance during the season were vicious tackling, indomitable fighting spirit, and cooperation. Had the squad pos- sessed the natural athletic ability or the experience of former football teams, the Won and lost columns would exhibit another story. RESULTS . Inf. Sch.

CMoved and seconded that this last be spread upon the sod of the stadium. Carried.j On January 2 the varsity team initiated its entry into the campaign in a most exciting game with Wofford College, in which it put over a one point victory on a most honorable and formidable opponent. Two days later the University of Georgia five, led by one Mr. Gurr, on a trip through Georgia, raided the domain of the Doughboys and annexed the Doughboy's scalp to their already heavily strung belt in a most decisive manner. Albany Y. M. C. A., the wonder team of the south, was the next in order. They too were victorious but only by displaying a most spec- tacular game. The Infantry team in this affair acquitted itself with glory and held the opposing quintet to a fairly close score. Auburn, with a onesided court, poor lighting, and various other pec- uliar proclivities furnished too much alibi material, and well, we succumb- ed by a two to one score. LAMm3R'r The only service game of the season was then played with the Fort McPherson team. They were entertained in the post gymnasium. The soldiers . from Atlanta proved easy and were defeated decisive- C . . L 'Q Q f I ly by a score of 50 to 26. FRANZ February lst, saw The Infantry School quintet play the Columbus Y. M. C. A. five.

Howard College, from Birmingham played us next, and they too went home with the top side of the score. In the second game with the Albany Y. M. C. A., played at Albany, The Infantry was again outplayed by this wonderful team. Back from Albany to greet Auburn in a return match, with "alibis" in their favor and playing an air tight floor game, The Infantry School quintet gained its stride and held Auburn scoreless for the entire last half-winning the game 27 to 17. In a determined, hectic struggle, the Columbus Y. M. C. A. met the Infantry in the post gymasium in the last game of the season. The Infantry- men finished the season in a blaze of glory by winning this game by a one point margin, after forty minutes of fury. The team was coached by Captain Lambert, who was also a prominent player in the position of forward. Other players in the forward position were Franz, Kjelstrom, and Buck-three excellent soldier performers. The center position was executed by Ankcorn. Pearson also performed in this capacity. At the position of guard McKenna, acting team captain, and Fortier were main stays. This position was well augmented by Neff and Mil- burn. Other players on the squad were Davis, Boatwright and Perwein. 5.1,-,,, M. .. KJELSTROM BUCK ANKCORN 'Q' it - .56 ui ss' vi? 'as'- 4 l nb Ja u -s f 9' " A A ll! 411 Z, X -5. l -Y, .

During the past year three or four playing teams have been in existence. Prior to June 1923 four teams were playing as follows: 29th Infantry, 83rd Field Artillery, Infantry School Blues and Infantry School Yellows, but since the latter date it has been necessary to reduce this number by eliminating one of the Infantry School teams because of the shortage of mounts suitable for Polo. At the present time there are about thirty-five players of the game at Fort Benning who regularly participate in games. This number would be more than double were the requisite number of mounts availiable. The active supporters of the game include practically every member of the gar- rison and a large number of civilians. The interest in Polo can best be in- dicated by the number of spectators who witness the match games played weekly on the post, the at- Tv tendance at which varies from I 200 to 500 spectators. X At present two fields are provided, one a good dirt field and the other a good turf field. An additional turf field is in- cluded in the Recreational Project, work on which has actually begun. During the fall of 1923 a team representing Fort Ben- ning played three games with a mixed civilian, National Guard and Reserve Corps team from Birmingham, two games at Birmingham and Q one at Benning. Much inter- mh est in Polo was aroused at ,GQi'n?5u2bv, YFIIL il l - l i X I L LV Y V 1 1 YJ 15' i 'f .,' S 9 .1 , s 1, 1 5 . ua N. i"s ---'--A QWUW' I . 2 Jr, A ,gi ,V I r K ' -5, pe ak Birmingham as a result of the games played there and more games will be arranged if finances permit. In October 1923 a series of three games was played by the 29th Infantry and 83rd Field Artillery teams at the Chattahoochee Valley Fair at Columbus. Shortly after the beginning of the 1923-1924 course an Infantry School team was organized. This team was selected from a squad composed of members of the Advanced Class, the Company Officers Class and the School Division. The following officers were members of the squad: Majors Philoon, Dravo, Hicks, and Simpsong Captains Craig, Kilburn, McKee, Vernon, Crockett and Lieutenant Elkins. After two short practice periods the School team lined up for its first game against the Veteran 29th Infantry team and was beaten by a score of 7 to 2. After devoting two weeks to intensive practice the School Team played the 83rd Field Artillery which it defeated, the score being 15 to 4. The School Team followed up this victory by defeating the Post Champions, the 29th Infantry by a score of 9 to 5, in a spectacular game full of thrills for both players and spectators. The 29th Infantry was better mounted than the School Team but the latter won because of superior team work and hitting ability. Both teams played good fast Polo.

Unfortunately, no funds were available in the Corps area to transport teams to and from Benning and the tournament had to be postponed indefinitely. In March 1924 a Fort Benning team entered in the Southern Circuit of the American Polo Association Tournament which was held at Camden, South Carolina. The most important step in the development of Polo in the Infantry as a whole was made when instruction in polo was included as a part of the course in the Infantry School. During the 1923-1924 course, seventeen members of the Advanced Class and fifty-three members of the Company Officers Class, or a total of seventy student officers received instructions in polo. All of these officers volunteered for this instruction which they found to be most interest- ing. No attempt is made to turn out finished players in this course due to shortage in time and mounts. However the fundamentals of the game, Polo equitation and an idea of team work, are taught. The knowledge and interest in polo thus gained by the student officers will undoubtedly be spread though- out the Infantry after graduation and this should go a long way towards the development of good polo in the Infantry and the Army as a whole.

HORSE SHOW MOST successful Horse and Transportation Show was held at 7 I tj Fort Benning on Friday and Saturday, February 22nd and 23rd, V 1924, under the auspices of the Officers Club. The events were X ' 1 divided into three main divisions-Transportation Division- IA Hunter Division-Saddle Horse Division. In the Transportation Division the following classes were shown. Class I. Escort wagons, 4 line team CMules.j Class II. Rolling kitchens. Class III. Machine Gun and Howitzer Carts. Class IV. Communication Carts. There were a total of 42 entries in the above classes and the condition of the personnel, material and animals showed the great amount of time and pains- taking care spent in putting the entries in condition. The most interesting events on the program from the spectators' point of view were the jumping competitions scheduled in the Hunter Division. The following events were held in this division. Class I., Jumping Competition--Officers. Class II. jumping Competition-Ladies. Class III. jumping in Pairs-Ladies and Gentlemen. ,Class IV. jumping Competition-Enlisted Men. Class V. Steeple Chase-One and one half rniles six jumps. There were 106 entries in the above classes and sixty-five riders. The course consisted of nine jumps, all obstacles were without wings, ten feet in Width and ranged between three to four feet in height. The Saddle Horse Division was divided into five classes as follows- Class I. Officers Chargers. Class II. Gentlemens Saddle Class. Class III. Ladies Saddle Class. Class IV. Mounted Orderlies. Class V. Polo Ponies. In the above classes there were 85 entries and 48 riders.

X- : K '-1924-WDOUGHBOY F an annual affair which will be most popular with the members of this garrison and our civilian friends in this community. A riding team of five officers and five ladies representing the Infantry School attended the Augusta Horse Show on February 29th and March lst and returned after a most successful and interesting trip. The Infantry School teams won 11 firsts, 14 seconds, 13 thirds and 11 fourths. The mem- bers of the team were entered in twenty two events and out of a possible seventy nine places they won forty eight. This is a remarkable record considering the fact that our horses were competing against some of the best stock in this part of the country. Tipperary, a horse from Norton, Connecticut, with an international reputation was defeated in the champion- ship class by Cyclone from the Infantry School Stables. The Augusta Show is to be an annual affair and it is the hope of the Infantry School team to repeat its performance next year. ea ef , aa . I fl f just f T . , Aafgzfn- , ...L Wu l f? .

In 1866 the 3d Battalion 11th Infantry was designated the 29th Infantry. In 1869 this second.29th Infantry was consolidated with the 24th Infantry and made up the 11th Infantry. The present edition of the 29th Infantry was authorized by act of Con- gress February Zd, 1901, and its organization was commenced at Fort Sheri- dan, Illinois on the third. On April lst, 1902 the regiment sailed for the Philippine Islands, on the Sheridan, and reached Manila, on May lst. Ten stations were garrisoned by the regiment on the islands of Ceba, Bohol, Negros and Panay. Companies G and H-3 officers and 152 enlisted men were sent to the Island of Mindanao in March 1903 Where they were for some time engaged in field operations against hostile Moros. On April 7th, 1904 the regiment returned to the States on the Sheridan and garrisoned Fort Douglas, Utah, Whipple Bks, Ariz., Ft. Duchesne, Utah. The regiment sailed from San Francisco August 5th, 1907 on the Logan and took station at Fort William McKinley, Luzon. On August 15th, 1909 the regiment sailed for the United States on the Thomas, and garrisoned Fort jay, Fort Porter, Fort Niagara. On March 17th, 1915 the regiment embarked at Weehawken, N. and sailed on the Buford for service, in the Panama Canal Zone. Arrived at Cristobal on March 25 and took station at Camp Gaillard, Culebra.

For five years the regiment had been split up in three battalion posts and, except for short periods of field training during the summer months, had not served as a unit. Now united and fairly comfortably quartered the regiment entered upon its duties of training and improving the defenses of the Canal with enthusiasm and energy. From January 26 to March 5, 1916 the regiment was engaged extensively in reconnoitering and opening trails through the jungles and on other con- struction work in connection with the defense plans for the Canal. In February 1917 companies were placed on guard at sensitive points on the Canal: the locks and docks Mira-flores, Pedro Miguel, Gamboa and De Lessepo. and in support of the Coast Batteries at Fort Randolph. On April 12, Co. C was sent to Taboga Island to guard Interned German prisoners. Co. C was relieved in October by a company from the Porto Rican Regiment. In july all enlisted men, 4 per cent in number, having a year on more to serve were transferred to the 33d Infantry, and the 29th Infantry received from that regiment men due to be discharged within a year. Officers were also mutually transferred in accordance with their length of foreign service. On August 25 the regiment Qless lst and 2d Bnsj sailed from Cristobal on Kilpatrick reaching New Orleans, La. on Augusta 31 and Camp Beaure- gard, La., on September lst. The lst and 2d Battalions followed leaving Cristobal on September 3d and reaching Camp Beauregard via New Orleans on September 9th. Soon after the arrival of the 29th Infantry at Camp Beauregard the organization of the 17th Division consisting of the 33d and 34th Infantry Brigades and other component organizations commenced. Two new regi- ments of infantry, the 83d and 84th were organized, the nuculous being fur- nished by transfer of officers and enlisted men from the 5th Infantry and the 29th Infantry respectively. During this early period in the organization of the 17th Division an epidemic of influenza struck the Camp. There were about 4,000 cases, one tenth of which proved fatal. The 84th Infantry to which many officers and enlisted men of the 29th Infantry had been trans- ferred lost two officers and thirty-eight of the enlisted men. Late in October the influenza subsided but before the troops had fully recovered from its LY -. z Pa Q -'L' ilx . ?

After the demobilization of the 17th Division the 29th Infantry continued on duty at Camp Beauregard until that camp was closed and then moved to Camp Shelby, Miss. in March 1919. Soon after this change of station the First Battalion moved to Camp Benning, Georgia. The Regiment Cless lst Battalionj remained at Camp Shelby on duty in connection with the dem- obilization of the thousands of troops that had been drafted for the war in that section of the South. In October 1919 the entire regiment was at Camp Benning, Georgia, and entered upon the very important and varied duty of combat demonstration at The Infantry School.

One of its roots is tradition, the happenings of the past which have been influen- tial in molding the present day character of an organization. In the 24th Infantry, tradition has played a significant part in fostering the spirit of pride in the regiment, and to the sum of tradition something is added daily. The new regimental song, recently adopted, will soon be a tradition, together with the distinctive insignia bearing the regimental coat of arms, itself design- ed to embody a tradition of heroic calibre. ' The history of the 24th Infantry is a record of duty well performed which the members of this generation may justly look upon with pride. The begin- ning of this record dates from the organization of the regiment, on November 1, 1869, by the consolidation of the 38th and 41st regiments of Infantry, at Fort McKavitt, Texas. The march of empire was ever westward in the days that saw the birth of the 24th Infantry, and for eleven years its service was ren- dered in frontier posts of Texas, from the Staked Plains to the Rio Grande, picturesque years of rough living, hardships, and incessant Indian fighting. The history of the development of the Southwest is interwoven with the early history of the 24th Infantry, for it was stationed in the territory of the Red Men of the Southwest for a period of twenty-seven years. From the border posts of Texas it moved in 1880 to the more desirable region of the Indian Territory, with headquarters at Fort Sill, and until 1888 its duties were to preserve order among the more or less peaceful Indian tribesvin the -i 15 F l 1 - 'fa v - '7' ' X im' Je lg -N 'pf W 3' M. 'V .a - " - if ja -7 -66 1 :m ov Territory and to keep out the marauding white settlers. Then followed a transfer to Indian Reservations in New Mexico and Arizona, where the old historic posts of Fort Apache, Fort Bayard, Fort Grant and others were occupied until the first move into civilization in 1897, when for the first time the regiment was united at Fort Douglas, Utah. During the long period of frontier service some of the most gallant officers of Civil War fame served as regimental commanders. From General Ronald S. McKenzie, the first Colonel of the regiment, the list contains such names as General H. Potter, General A. S. Doubleday, General Z. R. Bliss, General J. F. Kent, and Colonel E. H. Liscum. The second period in the history of the 24th Infantry came with the Spanish-American War and constitutes a record of gallant field service in Cuba and in the Philippines. Could the facts be condensed to fit the scope of this brief narrative it would be of considerable interest to trace in detail the fortunes of the regiment during this period. But the outstanding achieve- ments only can be recorded. These were, in Cuba, the participation in the campaign before Santiago and in the capture of Fort San juan, the stone block house, which is depicted on the regimental coat of arms. But a more heroic service than on the battlefield, and one which evoked the special com- mendation of the Commander-in-Chief in General Field Orders, was perform- ed by the colored soldiers from july 16 to August 25, 1898. This was the tour' of duty at the yellow fever camp of Siboney, Cuba, where for forty-one days they nursed fever patients, endeavored to clean up the congested and filthy pest camp, buried the dead, were themselves stricken and buried. After less than a year of garrison life at Fort Douglas, Utah, the regiment was again ordered to take the field, this time against the insurrectos of Emilio Aguinaldo in the Philippines. The story of campaigning under the tropical skies of Luzon, of innumerable hardships endured, of three years of bush- whacking, marching and skirmishing, includes many acts of individual bravery and devotion on the part of officers and men. Aguinaldo was captured in 1901, after important information as to his whereabouts had been obtained and transmitted to General Funston by an officer of the 24th Infantry. Thereafter, until embarked for the States in July, 1902, the regiment rendered valuable service in aiding to restore civil government and to suppress the plundering bands of Ladrones which infested the country. It is interesting to note that while all of the regiment except one com- pany was serving three years, under the blazing sun of the tropics the exi- S - 'E " vig? qi-- I Inf! Je xi -N ! . is ., - -x . A -., . 3 gencies of the service demanded that Company L be left to minutely inspect the aurora borealis as seen at Skaguay and Fort Wrangle, Alaska. However, the regiment was reunited at three old army posts in Montana during the summer of 1902. The year 1906 brought the second tour of Philippine service which was for a duration of two years. After taking station in the Visayan islands of Leyte and Cebu it was found that the rifle and bayonet in the hands of infan- trymen were still needed as a civilizing influence in those regions. The brethren of: the Pulajan fraternity were on the warpath in Samar and Leyte, and during 1906 and 1907 the 24th Infantry was often called upon to furnish expeditionary forces against them, which participated in some small but fierce encounters. Three uneventful years of garrison duty at Madison Barracks, N. Y., and Fort Ontario, N. Y., followed the return of the regiment to the States in the spring of 1908. But in 1912 many of the old soldiers who had remained in the Philippines could again greet their old regiment as it arrived on the transport Logan for its third tour of duty in the Islands. The Philippines were now well on their way to civilization, if not independence, and many of the old posts were being dismantled. Changing conditions brought about frequent changes of station, and from January, 1912, to October, 1915, or- ganizations of the regiment saw service in the majority of garrisoned posts, except on Mindanao. The fighting was over: this was a tour of sight-seeing. One more chapter of strenuous field service was written into the history of the 24th Infantry upon its return to the homeland. This was its partici- pation in General Pershing's punitive expedition into Mexico in 1916, which left the regiment still on Mexican soil in the early part of 1917. World events were now moving rapidly, but the stirring times of our entry into the Great War came and passed without bringing an active role for the 24th. Infantry. The regiment was ready but not called upon, and so it faithfully performed the assigned duty of border patrol in New Mexico, Texas, and Arizona, and finally took permanent station at Camp Furlong, Columbus, New Mexico. Though its part in the World War was inconspicuous it was nevertheless meritorious, for in its non-commissioned officers the 24th Infan- try furnished to the newly organized colored regiments a seasoned body of veterans who performed their war tasks with distinction, many of them in commissioned grades. The last journey, to date, in its travels, came to the regiment in September, 1922, when the transfer to Fort Benning took place. Here the men of the 10 ' " 'T . 5 . . s 9 :fx igul ill" .lg-., ii '-if :St . i , f, AQ l924 nouausov 24th Infantry have since carried on the best traditions handed down by those who have gone before. They have served the needs of the Infantry School, proud of being members of the 24th Infantry, yet humble, faithful, and ever ready to assume and accomplish the duties required. Brief reference should be made to the many trophies which the regiment has gathered during its lifetime through the prowess of its members in athletic contests and military competitions. They crowd four long shelves in regimental headquarters, and silently speak for themselves. Perhaps in conclusion the following most recent bits of history may be of interest: lst:-During the last six months of 1923 the regiment acquired the record of losing by discharge and retirement 454 men and enlisting during the same period 483, a turnover of about 60 percent of the total strength. The significant feature of these figures is that 58 percent of the discharged men reenlisted in the regiment. 2nd:-On a Wednesday afternoon, not long ago, the recreation hall of the 24th Infantry resounded for the first time to the strains of the regimental song, whistled and then sung by the entire regiment standing under arms facing the stage. When the last echo had died away the Commandant of the Infantry School, from the center of the stage, expressed to the regimental commander, Colonel B. P. Nicklin, and to the assembled regiment, his pleasure in the fact that the 24th Infantry had composed and adopted for its own, a strong, simple, and dignified song, and that it could sing this song with a spirit which rneant-regimental "esprit de corps." - ..... ,- ..,-74, Q, A f , f' -- - - at " 2 - t l V - X 12 zfiiw ff ,ITS-vt.: -fr-fff N M' if - 24.3 -1 2 I I ' L . f i f 5-v --w ' "U - ,.., Q-. yu-L I t .:.-, , fu L..

O. Thomas, formerly of the lst Cavalry, at Fort D. A. Russel, Wyoming. One third of the 3-. peace strength of the lst Cavalry was used as a nucleus for the new regiment and it was filled with volunteer recruits. Subse- quently the command reverted to Colonel George H. Cameron with Lieut. Col. Francis J. Koester second in command. On August lst, 1917, the regi- ment was converted into the 83d Provisional Field Artillery and assigned to the 8th Field Artillery Brigade of the 8th Regular Division. In February, 1918, the regiment left Ft. D. A. Russel for Camp Fremont, California where it joined the other two regiments of the Brigade, the 81st and 2d Field Artillery. On july, 1, 1918, the regiment left Camp Fremont for Fort Sill, Oklahoma where instruction and maneuvers were carried out in preparation for service over seas. The long looked for embarkation orders came at last in October and the regiment sailed from Hoboken, N. J. on October 28th, 1918, arriving in Brest just two days before the armistice was signed. A month was spent in Ploermal, Department of,Morbihan, Brittany, after which the regiment returned to Brest to act as bodyguard for President 2 ' q i: fl 1 qi 1 J X 1 ' it QS' qw ,P-Q 14 x I W' ,QS f up Jo ti'--'f .

After three days at Camp Mills the regiment entrained for Camp Knox, Kentucky, where it arrived on January 3, 1919. In November, 1919, the War Department ordered the regiment convert- ed into a light motorized Field Artillery regiment, equipped with 75 mm. guns and 5 ton tractors. Lieutenant Colonel julian I. Chamberlain was in command at this time and retained command until August, 1920, when he was relieved by Colonel Manus McClosky. Shortly after this, Major J. W. Rumbough arrived from the office of the Chief of Field Artillery to take command of the lst Battalion which was to go on detached service at Ben- ning, Ga. This Battaliori left on September 15, 1920, marching overland and arrived at Fort Benning, on November 4, where it has remained until this time, under the command of Major Rumbough until June 17, 1923 when Major E. P. King was assigned command. Major King remained in command until relieved by Major john B. Anderson, at present in command. The 2d Battalion and Regimental Headquarters remained at Camp Knox, Kentucky until it was decided to place this Battalion on the inactive list. During the fall of 1921, no replacements were sent for men discharged from this Battalion and all property was turned in. The remnants were assigned to convoy duty with parts of the 2d and 81st Field Artillery and helped as drivers of Militor Trucks in the transfer of these vehicles to Camp Bragg, N. C. At this station, in January, 1922, the 2d Battalion was placed on the inactive list and the men remaining transferred to other organizations at Camp Bragg. The lst Battalion now remains as a demonstration unit with the Infantry School at Fort Benning. D, -WRX I 'll , , . 'N igqfgf 1214. " il S .

CThe following is extracted from a Diary found on the Machine Gun Range the morning after the night before. The original will be kept until the close of the school term and will then be cremated with undue ceremony in order that the decendants of this "Rare Bird" may not recognize the characteristics of their misguided ancestors and follow in his delinquent footsteps.j APPARENTLY THE DAY BEGINS: ON THE TRAIN-It is a cold morning and the climate is better where I came from. They marched us to the train instead of letting us saunter out and get on. On the train are the usual "disturbers" who insisted on pushing and shoving and keeping everybody all stirred up. The train stopped and a volley of wet dirt from the car ahead hit me in the face and knocked my hat off. What is there to laugh about? No fun in that for me. Train moves on. Why doesn't the engine take on watery before it starts? It would save time. What do all these school boys find to laugh at? ON THE M. G. RANGE-Stand around in a circle while the instructor gives lecture. Oh, Lord, when will he get through? Why doesn't he be ser- ious about it? Looks too da- cheerful. Ha! He's about through. QAny questions?j Yep, here they go. All the "A" hounds have begun to sound off. What do I get out of all these questions? Nothing! Nothing but "C", while those dumbbells are grabbing off all the "A's" and "B's". Well, all I Want to do is to get thru here anyway. Now we are going to shoot. Don't see why they make us shoot and work like privates anyway. We're not privates.

We will probably be through by 3:30 but we'll have to stay until 3:40 just to keep the instructor in solid. That bird has a cinch. Well we are through at last and one more day behind us.

I mean the Colonel not the Cheef, he had on Slacks. "Ah-ha," sez the Cheef, "That Colonel's all run down he kneads refreshment, I'll send him to Benning: they've got lots of refreshment for Colonels down there." So the Cheef sent the Colonel and a couple of his buddies, also Colonels, down for refreshments. Since that day Colonels have been coming to Benning for refreshments ever since, except may be some who live in Alabama where they got a lot of home talunt. Well this year we had 10 Colonels mostly full Colonels, QI mean the kind with eaglesj taking refreshments. They was known as the refreshment or refresher class and were parked in rest periods and at night in block 21. Well sir, the refreshers or the freshies, either or neither, had a hard time of it watching the horses and mules and other officers work all day and play- ing Ma john all night. When nobody was workin for them to look at, they rode around in bum ole reconnaissance cars lookin at the post of which there is quite a lot only it ain't all nature's wonderland. Well any how the refresh- ers did a lot of ridin which livened them up considerable cause a couple of jolts they say is good for the liver but that depends on where you were the night before. Yes sir, these Colonels were hard worked. They watched the Captains try to shoot each other with Machine Guns, they watched the Field Officers make faces at each other on the bayonet court, and they watched the Captains get Braunier doing rough an tumble games. Some how Colonels are a funny lot fha-ha-Haj they seem to like to see Captains work. I guess they think thats what Captains are for. Cjokej. But don't laugh boys the poor devils is dyin. These refreshers came in for some pretty rough treatment themselves cause they had to take Scoutin and Patrollin. They took it serious too. There's something nockcoocoo about a Col. flat on his rear echelon trying to look inconspicuous. They did most of this work on their support line, lots of cushions you know. I bet they ain't going to give any hide and seekless stuff personally when they go back to their regiments. No sir, the Captains are going to do it and then be told how Bum they are. Colonels always know all the Bum things there are. L L y z 2 Y ,I a 2 ' - - 'K l XR 'Q Q Im 9 ' 'Ja .so 'rin ,qv-Q 1 4 x I . Ink .1 A G N . -' N .. , Q - f im. -Q! :I ' S QA Some of them know some Bum jokes too, which is your cue to laugh when you hear them. Only donlt laugh at the refreshers on their 2nd echelons. As I've said five or six times before, these ten refreshers this year had a hard time. I guess if they hadn't known all about King Alfred the Great, it might have been harder. They got one of the most painful educations in 10 weeks that the captains ever went thru. Of course it did the Colonels good seeing the other boys do their stuff and they can go back to their regiments and be meaner than ever. But thats what Colonels are for. As for me give me liberty or death-but no refresh- ments. When I get to be a Colonel my kitchen section is going to be too Wore out to stand any knockin around Biglerville besides I feel like yfxl Caesar did when he said, See XE Naples and Die, only iI'd 'IK change it to See Benning Dj!

I924 DOUGHBOY CONFERENCE---WORKING IN THE FIELD The object of the conference this morning is to bring before you Infan- try Officers' lower intelligences the great problems that beset the Engineer when he plans out the methods you will have to follow when you construct Field Works. The word "Field Works" is possibly a misnomer, for the work is really all done when the Engineers plan the modus operandig all that the Doughboy has to do is dig. Of course, I think you can understand this, trenches are generally dug somewhere in a field so that the word Field is cor- rect. In other words, only half of the term is incorrectg or, in other words, the expression Field Works is about 5O'l correct. In the first place we have to determine how much can be done. This requires complicated-you will doubtless consider them complicated-tables. On the blackboard here I have copied the tables out of the pamphlet which you all have in your pos- session but you will be able to read my chalk figures much more easily than the clearly printed ones in the pamphlet. Now this number here, this 8, rep- resents the amount of trench two feet wide, two feet deep, and two feet long- ' '177"" 'f Nilwfiff. ' ' ' I . . ,tri in other words two-no, I ,.

But let us take 8 to start with and if in the course of battle you find the Law of Averages has been broken call on us and we Engineers will be glad to furnish you with more numbers. After taking this figure 8 and assembling your men, divide them into groups of 8, and then di- vide the 8 by two and you will get -let me see-yes 8 divided by 2 is 4. Now we have the number 8, and four men. Give each man three shovels and picks, or three picks and shovels as the case may be, and put them to work. At the end of the average day each man will have dug-9 times 3 is 27 and that multiplied by Z is 54. Divide 54 by 3 and you will have 18. Divide that by 9, see, the answer is 2. Now multiply 2 by 4 and there you are, 8. You can't get away frorn figures.- 3 cubic feet in one day. Now you may find that by the end of the third or fourth day that even the average soldier will not be quite up to this high average of 8. Perhaps he has broken one of his picks, or he may have tired himself a bit trying to use all three at once, or he may have forgotten to use a pick and shovel at the same time. At any rate, after three or four days you may find the number 8 too large. In other words you want a number less than 8. Let us say, 6. Yes, here it is in the table. You see how we get it? 8 divided by 4 is 2, add 1 and you get 3. And three times two is six. In othe words you see where you would be if you tried to construct Field Works without an Engineer to do all the hard work. We will now go out to a soft sandy place about twice as far away as necessary and we will show you how it ought to be done. Don't ask any ques- tions because I know what they will be before you ask them and you wouldn't be able to understand the answers. Five minute break. It is now 9:58. As- semble at the train at 10:00. 7. X 2 . ,X VY Y ...Q S Q T' 'ui H2 S' I 'L i 'fi ps? ,-'1 fn-- IW x V iw -la F, I' SCF r Q S fx 1 A lr. iii f fit ' A1 2 1 EATING THE ETI EM CARD - .

Nc D924 ousnsov COORDINAT ION A thing that's stressed throughout the land Impressed on all from birth, Is that there's nothing can exceed Coordination's worth. In kindergarden first we meet With this important thought, And learn our dollies not to start Till paste and paper's brought. As up we mount life's ladder steep The idea still is stressed. The Wolf Cubs and the Boy Scouts, too, Are with this tenet blessed. As they grow up youths are taught In school work and in games, Coordination is the thing That's rnade historic names. Long, long ago the business world To this idea subscribed, And pays right now quite handsomely For good that is derived. Our experts in efficiency This modern doctrine teach, And gray haired heads of big concerns Coordination preach. The Army and the Navy too Have not been left behind By leaders in civilian life, We're glad indeed to find. E! 'A -r 3 .59 v' 3" I?" x fmt!

There is a crowd, most ignorant, That stupidly proclaims The reason why they wear black braid Is mourning for their brains! But that's not so-oh, no, no, no! They really are quite bright: And if there's ought that's gone amiss They'll strive to set it right. The only flaw the system has Is that its hard to find A one of these bright gentlemen In places I've in mind. They seem quite thick in cities large, In fact that is the rule, But one can note their scarcity In places like this school. Their absence here we all deplore- Yet were they here we might Conclude that after all was said, Perhaps they weren't quite bright! The lack that all have noted most Is someone who could teach The younger ones that sit at desks What all their elders preach. Now take the matter of our clothes The things we Wear each day- Coordination here is nil A fact that none gainsay. 1.2 5 2, Q S Q -6 fn 5 I .

At that time we engendered hopes That here the thing would end, But that fond wish was not fulfilled- Their ways they did not mend.

' U v THE MGNOGRAPH CWith apologies to "The Raven"j How well I remember, when early in November, As I entered school one morning, whistling, singing as of yore, There arose before my vision something needing quick decision, 'Twas the monograph. I saw it as I stood upon the floor, "Damn the luck" I muttered, as I entered through the door But 'twas there in big black letters, I can see it evermore. To the book store then I hied me, when the librarian espied me, "Who is this" he cried, upstarting, as I busted thru the door, "Help me, save me, Mr. Ducrow, give me all the books that you know On the Marne, the Somme, the battles fought by Pershing by the score. The monograph has got me, give me all your stock and store, I'1l be insane by tomorrow," And he added "evermore." Home then I weary plodded, to my friends I merely nodded, I was humbled, cowed and stricken, My God, but I was sore, Put my feet beneath the table, gulped my food and thus was able, To gain minutes that were needed to enrich my mind with lore, To fill the yawning cavity that had ne'er been filled before And if I live to be a hundred will be filled thus Nevermore. Thus I lived and worked and fretted, slightly aided and abetted By the drivel and the piffel of those who'd gone before Thus I emulated Gibbons, cribbed from Bancroft, Green and Simonds Improved Buchan and Motley daily as I added more and more Copying words and phrases is a thing that I abhor, To their work, I added phrases, but I added nothing more. Weeks passed by and I was able by living in the stable Close to nature and away from all that I adore, To divorce my wife's affections, forget my boys and by reflection E - 'I fi 1 I? - N -.

But at last the trial was ended, my sentence was suspended, I emerged from out the darkness of that nasty stable door Got acquainted with the neighbors, saw the sky, the trees, the jay birds "Keep me here forever is all that I implore, Keep me here" I gibbered faintly "I will monograph no more" And the darkness of the stable echoed- "Monograph no more." Now I wander in the gloaming, from within there comes a moaning, From my lips there comes a whisper that I never heard before, On my hand I bear a token, an index finger broken Busted smack upon the keyboard just below the figure four And the whisper raised a blister as thru my lips it tore And I mutter morn and evening "I will monograph no moref' So the cursed thing was ended and my wobbly way I wended To the Section and Department where they grade and mark and score, There I turned in my effusion, fled from laughter and derision, And I waited in fear and trembling just behind an open door, There I waited and debated till they followed up my spoor And they gave me back my paper It was marked "INFERIOR." 59 cuff w -. , , fywiv-M . .. 4 Hg A In an . , 1- V. ,-11 ,., ,az X f 7, l,j'llfU,A Trp - f X .Q X441 - W 4X4:0 N I -rlfflllll H 'Nff "nl ' fl- Wai: f , v 'W' f -. ,, f. e ff N',,! ying ." ll: - r , , . - ,L s- yy - fri, ,V . .-r nf, , I 7 4 ? r " .

E'en on the battlefields again The flowers will grow And once more raise their heads In sweet communion--and silent prayer Over graves of the valiant dead. Let us from the flowers take A lesson, sweet and rare-and With the living keep in touch With whole hearted devotion, and care. Then hail! again, hail! the doughboy, He who takes and holds positions In conflict, strife and cataclysrn, Sacrificing life and all at his country's call, Illustrious, heroic Doughboy. 4 fl W we Imp L c f - 1 2 a J -72 X . - if S ' i 4' E vi 1 -A i . ! 9 K A 'al ,sa ,ir gg-- J l JG ,Q -N ,f ,, K i t -Q2 i n , g THE BIGLERVILLE KLU KU KAN This organization is one of the strongest and most active at the Infantry School. Membership in the great order is a much coveted distinction. It stands unique in the history of modern mankind. Its members are not selected because of official, political, or social influence. The much touted "A" cannot bring an undesirable into the fold of membership. The Kan stands alone, strong in its position, fearless in the exercise of its privileges and prerogatives and with the grandest and noblest sentiments, yet sympa- thetic toward its brothers-those who have left the state of single blessed- ness for that of double cussedness. It is the Gibraltar of our present day social and domestic turmoil. Like a mighty statesman, striving for the uplift of his nation and endeavoring for the emancipation of his brothers, it neither brooks nor sanctions any interference from the fickle, though more intelligent,-female of the species. Misunderstood, slandered, libelled and frowned upon by manyg sincere in its purpose and true to the ideals through which it was conceived and - Y 'T-Y - rm fgxx ?

It is the Columbus of liberty, the Washington of destiny and the Lincoln of today. Its members are happy in the thought of their hours of rest and recreation after 4 p. m. daily: in their freedom from necessary use of the Columbus-Fort Benning daily risk: from the unreason- able demands of bandit landlords: from domestic trials and tribulations. They still manage to be sedate enough to let the dignity of their freedom be ever a worthy example to those as yet outside of the fold who are weak enough to consider, even momentarily, changing their present state of bache- lorhood. Our members are not many, but their hearts beat as one and beneficial results are therefore obtained. Through the past school year this powerful and influencial organization has been guided by loyal and zealous pioneers, whom its members, in their unfailing wisdom and farsightedness, selected to pilot their destinies through- ff xg I gli f f4Z..jq2,M ,ag It A - mifilil-i5l"tl..f ' K7 1211.11 X QQAU5' -EZ'-T,,',.2l?,.ifLxv '- Q ,, -flllnl.

The reason for Columbus, Georgia, being of such importance to the thousands of Infantry officers, for that matter many officers of other branches of the service, is that they will eventually visit Columbus, Georgia, perhaps live here for nine months or longer while attending The Infantry School, only nine miles out from the city. A prospective citizen of a community desires information in advance about the city to which he is being sent and this article is to acquaint officers coming to Fort Benning with some of the things he would like to know about. The officers not intending to establish an industry or a retail store, the usual statistics on the greatness of Columbus' waterpower and the com- mercial importance will be avoided and social, recreational, educational and other advantages will be briefly described. Our army friends have been kind enough to say that no city near an army camp is as cordial as Columbus to her army friends. There are numer- ous clubs, the Country Club with its 18 hole golf course, the swimming pool at the foot of the beautiful knoll where stands the beautiful two story home, reached after a ride through romantic Lovers Lane, are already known to thousands of army people. The Muscogee, Elks and Harmony are some of the leading clubs in the downtown district. Warm Springs, a short ride from Columbus, is another mecca for the army people as here is located a resort hotel and a number of cottages. Dances and bathing in the famous warm springs furnish delightful mediums for pleasant week ends. Sports of every kind adaptable to the South are to be found in Columbus and Benning. The Georgia-Auburn classic is fought out on the gridiron at the Driving Park stadium early in each November and thousands of visitors flock to Columbus to witness the football game. Special reservations are made forthe army people. Boxing matches, baseball games and other sport events are played there in addition to Benning's pretentious program. There are numerous theaters, including a large one where the dramas, L Y ., 1 2 2 " Q if 5 ' Y ae- , s g- '6 fy 1 5 W- S I V . 1,1 Ax. ,qw ,fu 1 A x IW .le fi'--',f wx f 'xv - AIQZQ-D GHBOY QM musical comedies, etc., are presented frequently by the same companies "mak- ing" Atlanta and other large Southern cities. Columbus, with her 65,000 people within a radius of three miles of the court house, naturally has a good public school system and officers wishing to enter their children in the Columbus schools may do so. knowing that these schools have been praised for their efficiency by American and European educators. Increased enrollments in the past few years has resulted in several modern grammar schools being erected along the most approved lines. In addition to the public grammar and high schools, the latter numbering two, an industrial high school and one where the classical languages are taught, there are several private institutions, Chase's Conservatory of Music, a par- ochial school and Lorena Hall, a girls boarding school, having also resident students. There are churches of practically every denomination. The most modern Sunday school building in the south is now being erected on the famous historic Church Square, a spacious block in the heart of the city set aside 100 years ago by state engineers for church purposes and in addition to furnish- ing room for the big Sunday School building has ample room left for two of the cities largest churches and spacious shaded park area. More than 50 churches are to be found in Columbus while smaller denominations not own- ing church edifices hold regular services in halls. Columbus streets is one of several factors creating a favorable "first impressionf' These streets, thanks to the same state engineers laying off the public squares, measure in width from 99 to 164 feet, giving play- ground right at the doors of hundreds of families. The wide parkways on each side of the driveways offer opportunity for young Americans to play baseball and other games. These youngsters frolic the year round in front of their homes for the climate is such that outdoor sports may be enjoyed the year round. The Infantry School has not lost a day from outside work due to weather con- ditions since it was founded. Quite a boost for Columbus' climate. . Supervised recreation may be had at the Y. M. C. A., a beautiful marble structure given to the city by George Foster Peabody and his brothers, the first, if not the only marble Y. M. C. A. building in the world. The Peabodys were Columbus citizens, so were Samuel Spencer, Southern Railway president. and the Straus brothers, as well as many other nationally known men and women. g - " j ' W" -6 W 5 S ,117 iv.. Imp Ja il -N ! o 5 1 i l' ' lin. gif-ffl I 5 1924 nouansov There are numerous points of interest in and near Columbus. The beautiful ante-bellum home, "St. Elmo," where Augusta Evans Wilson, a Columbus woman, secured the scenes for the novel bearing that title yet stands and is one of Columbus' most beautiful suburban homes. The last battle of the Civil war was fought one week after General Lee's surrender at the Georgia side of the Fourteenth Street bridge and is now surrounded by mammoth cotton mills and the South's largest fixture plant. There is Oglethrope tablet, placed at the foot of Broad Street near the point General Oglethrope crossed the Chattahoochee river after conferring with the Creeks, the Indians having possession of the country in those days. Going down the shaded wide street to the tablet, the Confederate monument is seen in the center of the parkway. After seeing the points of interest in Columbus one may take the Chat- tahoochee river trip for it is at Columbus that navigation meets the power from the falls of the river. This delightful trip to Apalachicola, 360 miles away via water, carries one to the famous Dead Lake region where fishing and hunting as you have dreamed of for years are to be found. Comfortable river steamers make regular schedules through this picturesque country, passing through 10 varieties of scenery. The river transportation is a great asset to Columbus, a city having seven railroad lines extending in all directions. Good roads help you get to Columbus quickly and several highways pass through western Georgia's metropolis. Railroads and the river steamers carry much freight, Columbus goods being sent to all parts Qf the world for Columbus is one of the nations great cotton manufacturing cities, one cotton mill having 34 acres of space under one roof. There are 100 plants making 200 different articles and the industrial expansion necessitates the building of a 35,000,000 project some miles up the river and above Goat Rock Dam, now the fartherest-south great water- power development in the United States. The Goat Rock development is visited annually by hundreds of army people. While seeing all these interesting places and studying "the city that is differentf' due to the great variety of interests, one must eat and sleep and six hotels await your arrival. Many tea rooms, cafes and dining rooms of the hotels, the majority serving Southern dishes prepared by the South's greatest chefs, the Southern mammy, will offer you some agreeable surprises in good things to eat. gh? 1, i 'i -if 5 W Y .

You won't want to feel like you're a visitor and before you know it you'll be getting up at meetings and talking as enthusiastically about plans for build- ing a greater Columbus as the older citizens for we intend to make of you a citizen of Columbus and if you can't stay with us after your school closes at Benning you can remember that "the next best thing to living in Columbus is to visit her often." 3 ' 7' .
