Through the molten haze of the moving Hell
To the sputtering wrath beyond
Go the soldiers that grunt but seldom yell- A
The ones with both feet on the ground.
They flash their steel in the enemy's eyes,
If perchance those eyes stay around:
They tackle a nest or a tank. What is size
To thern with both feet on the ground?
Ah, Doughboy, you're rich in the race you have run
Whether dying a-field or in bed
It is you at the start and the finish who's Won,
It is you who were up there ahead.

THE INFANTRY SCHOGL
HE OLD ADAGE "Great oaks from small acorns
grow" has never had better exemplification than
found in the growth of the Infantry School.
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
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
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'
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

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

School and the School of Musketry and for the first time in the history of our
army there was established an all-Infantry training center. 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
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

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

At the same time the name of the Field Officers' Class was changed
to the Advanced Class, so at the present time we have the following courses

Company Officers' Course
National Guard and Reserve Officers' Course
A notable achievement at Benning was the establishment of the first
General Officers' Class in the history of the United States Army. 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-
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
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."

The Advanced and Company Officers' Courses are of about equal dura-
tiong the Advanced class starting Sept. 15th, the Company Officers Class
Oct. 1st, and both ending May 31st. It is about these classes that the school
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:

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
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

The Infantry School offers great possibilities in case of a national
emergency. 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
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".

GENERAL HENRY L. 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-

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.

HIS branch of the faculty is arranged in three
groups to each of which are assigned some of the
varied subjects taught by the Department of
Military Art. These groups are termed com-
mittees and are designated by the letters A, B,
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
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.

It took a lot of time to strip the thing and get it back together again.
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

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

in the individual infantryman by training along this and other methods of
hand-to-hand conflict. 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.

delivered an assortment of Cal. .30 ball and tracer ammunition on a variety
of targets. 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.
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,

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 :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

And finally Military History, hand in hand with Military Art, develops
a sense of nice discrimination, sound reasoning and the ablity to find the
immutable principles of his profession hidden in the mass of prejudiced,
inaccurate. incomplete and confusing details.
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

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

and has resulted in conscientous effort by the students to improve their physi-
cal condition. 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
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
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

arranging bouts and officiating. 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.
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.

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,
1 M3 V i f
era. if 3 K A '
Three officers to be designated by the War Department and to be
assigned, as far as practicable, to organizations stationed at Camp
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.

All of the projects that are submitted to the Infantry Board or that are
originated by it may be grouped under one of the following heads:
Qaj Infantry material-arms, ammunition, clothing, equipment, rations,
Cbj Infantry training and tactics.
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
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.

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
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-
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. A few of the projects now

before or recently handled by the board are listed to show the general type.
1. Reduction of load carried by the Infantry soldier CSee Major Max

2. Improved Tripod for Browning Machine Gun, Caliber .30, involving
New mechanical traversing mechanism with click detent of one mil
and other improvements.
3. Study of Infantry Organization, involving all infantry organizations
to and including the brigade.
4. Auto weapons test-will include all present caliber .30 weapons,
also Garand and Thompson auto-loading rifles and will involve an
expenditure of over 300,000 rounds of ammunition.
5. Communication Carts-One has been improvised by modifying a
machine gun cart and attaching the RL-16 wire cart as trailer, all
to be drawn by one mule.
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-
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

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
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.

for report that require that the merit of munitions proposed for various pur-
poses be determined and that material be submitted to thorough trial. It is the

The projects received cover a widely varied field. They are classified,
roughly, into one of the three categories of infantry weapons and exterior
ballistics, the clothing and personal equipment of the infantry soldier, and the
organizational equipment, transportation and special articles.
The Infantry Board and the Department of Experiment together consti-
tute practically one agency which is available to the Chief of Infantry for
purposes of studying and developing matters of interest to the Infantry Arm.

EVERAL years ago, in casting around for a method to insure the
propagation of the Infantry spirit, a knowledge of the Infantry
Game, and the standardization of Infantry training methods,
not to mention the removal of cobvvebs which may have collected
in the vicinity of the hats of many of our senior officers, our
Chief hit upon the scheme of requiring those who were to be placed in corn-
mand of Infantry troops, to undergo a refresher course in training manage-
ment at the Infantry School.
At first only a few general officers were detailed to take the course, but
as the results obtained were so satisfactory, and the student officers so loud
in their praises, it was finally determined to enlarge the class, and require all
colonels who had been recently selected to command regiments, or were due
for selection to take this refresher course. 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

of the proletariat and wended way back to our respective duties, better in-
fantrymen, with clearer ideas as to the duties and responsibilities of regimen-
tal commanders, and a keener insight as to uniform training methods and
programs of instruction.
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-

Fi. liwllfiug, .lmm Ir!-Yesterday the Nlilitnrj' Police found, on Bouton
Hill, nn unconscious man whom they carried to the post hospital. 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

Their faces bore strange expressions and varied. 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

charm. I hastened my stride,
as did those before me, with

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'.

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.
And these seemed exceedingly small and in
sad repair as though the estate were unpro- 5 3

invaders were herded with their womenfolk. Fl

The heat being now past all endurance, I sought shelter and saw not
these people for a number of days. And when I did I was greatly surprised.

upon the ground in complete subjugation. pointing their pieces at small
disks held some ten paces forward by persons of their own tribe, while their
keepers stood above them armed with nothing save small sticks sometimes
used in riding.
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

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
performed these delicate tasks. 'S

thought of that which he was about to relate

repose had long since fled. And he spoke at Vg I fx

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
gd' 'I -

alphabet affixed to certain paper-writings headed: "Musketry." And the
letters 'A' and 'B' were sadly lacking. 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
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

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-

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
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-
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

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
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

tribe was supposed to have acquired from the teachings of the past several
months. 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

to Ft. Benning as Instructor in Topography. 'Kincaid' to Ft. Benning as

Wagon Transportation. 'West' same station to Call the Roll each
morning. 'Hitchcock' Shooting MOOSE in Alaska, 'Farrel' raising red apples,
'Rice' raising goats. if :ii if And many more which the fading light prevented
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.

And now I find them gathered on the lawn of the Manor, while the
Baron, from a vantage point on the gallery, exhorts them to great deeds in
the days to come. 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."

I hereby appoint the Editor of the Infantry School News as Executor of

and separately to pass them on in as sugar-coated a form as they were passed

all the 'A's in all the alphabets, and I charge him to use his bequest freely and

other high explosives, if there be others, and all detonators. And I charge that
he mix them carefully before using, that he may not mix with them thereafter.

EPTEFMBER 27-And this is Columbus on the Chattahoochee.
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. Spent the afternoon in house hunting, and wore a set of gold bars
for camouflage, Had dinner at a tea room, and afterward explored Alabama

to locate the electric fan, and so to bed.
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.

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
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!

The letters come on the examination papers in blue pencil, or sometimes
in red, depending upon the artistic color sense of the instructor. 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"

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

Rather think that two or three of the section were asleep, but maybe they
think better with their eyes shut. Morale going up again.
December 3-Work piling up again. 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.
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.

january 30-They sprang a new course at us today-Training and
Management. Who is to be trained, and what is to be managed is not yet
clear, but we live in hopes. 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.
QEditor's Note: From this point the diary becomes confused, many dates
have no entries, and others are dismissed with a few illegible sentences. It
is possible that by this time, over-study had affected the writer's health.j

I perform on a rope, no ancestor of mine ever climbed a tree. Tried the
fourteen-year-old tests todayg I couldn't place in a kindergarten meet.
March 5-Lectures today. My chair broke in the middle of the second
one, and I cou1dn't get to sleep again. We're starting tactics.
March 14-Care of animals, tactics, stable management, physical torture,
field orders, map problems. Will it ever be spring?
April 5-Spring fever. A terrible disease. There used to be only one
crap game on the two trains of the narrow gauge, and now there is one OIT
every car. Terrain exercise today. A mean one. What's the matter with the
school office, have they run out of A's and B's?

but for unkind remark of the head instructor. He said: "You'd make a fine
polo player if you didn't have to play the game on horse-back." That's mean
and sarcastic. I guess he thinks I'm not athletic, but I used to play left
tid on the college tiddly winks team.

thrown in for good measure. Only a week of it left, anyhow, but where in

1924- no e:-mov
N Sunday and Monday, February 25th and 26th, 1924, National
I Guard and Reserve Officers from all over the United States and
i Porto Rico began pouring off trains in Columbus, to form, with
gg,,,ix'!3 a few who had arrived earlier, what Was latter to be "Borden's
Gunnersi' and "Scott's Uniformed Mob," otherwise known as
Companies "E" and "D" at the Infantry School.
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
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.

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.

W NWN Q ment of General Subjects, The Infantry School for the third
,Q ... 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.
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-

tory enlisted men furnished

Dwyer, Douthit and Stew-

Officers' Class furnished ex-

man, McKenna, Reed, and

squad was composed of sol-
diers who graduated from

team was coached by Major Milburn, assisted by Majors Philoon and Sibert
of the Advanced Class, Captain Lambert and Lieutenant Billo.
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
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.

set in action, and the new post gymnasium was made into the finest court in
the south. CMoved and seconded that this last be spread upon the sod of the
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.
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

February lst, saw The Infantry School quintet play the Columbus
Y. M. C. A. five. It was only after a strenuous encounter that the Columbus
' N W . In
Y. M. C. A. won, by one basket. 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.

BYE-BOLO at Fort Benning has been steadily growing in importance as
'ff a sport and as a means of diversion and exercise for an increasing-
n " f ly greater number of officers and their families as well as citizens
qi, of Columbus.
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
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.
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

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

Detailed plans were made for the 4th Corps Area Polo Tournament to be
held at Fort Benning during December 1923 and voluntary contributions of
officers of the post had assured its financing. 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,
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.

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
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. The interest and
enthusiasm exhibited in this show gives every assurance that it will become

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.

OUTLINE HISTORY 29th INFANTRY
4 'N January 29th, 1813 Congress authorized the organization of
I 7 forty-four regiments of infantry and the first 29th Infantry was
created in that year but in 1815 this regiment was demobilized
and its personnel transferred to the 6th Infantry.
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. This
station had formerly been the seat of the Civil Government of the Canal

Zone and the troops were for some time engaged in construction and altera-
tion to fit in to the needs of a military command.
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
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

effects the Armistice was signed and the hopes of the regiment, to participate
in the World War, were blasted.
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.

THE T WENT Y-FGURT H INFANT RY
Q Q E, SPRIT DE CORPS, the intangible, yet indispensable asset of a
military organization, is associated with trial by battle, citations
and honors: yet it can be developed and maintained to a very high
lg 1 degree in the routine of peaceful garrison life. 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

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--
xi -N !
. is ., -
-x . A -., .
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
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
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

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."

15,55 N June, 4, 1917, the War Department created the 25th Cavalry
" under the command of Captain C. 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
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

Wilson during his stay at Brest. On january 4th, 1919, it sailed for home
shores, arriving on january 18th. 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
The lst Battalion now remains as a demonstration unit with the Infantry
School at Fort Benning.

THE PLAINT OF THE "RED APPLEU
There's a "The" and an "An" to tactics,
But the "An" is the same as the "The."
And to deviate slightly
From the "An" though rightly,
Is productive of "Cv or "D"
There's an "A," as we know, in "Approved,"
In "solution" there's "S", "O" and "L",
The "A" is desirable,
But the others quite liable,
The story of grades to tell.
Napoleon, Lee, Grant and Bismarck,
And Generals of lesser degree.
All won "constellations,"
By use of "formations,"
That no one expected to see.
Where then is the Praise and the plaudit,
That the plan which is "different" should win,
Should potential tacticians,
Be marked like morticians
Or committers of "Original Sin"?
Oh: "R", thou gladsome mirthster,
Oh: "K", dour attenuate Celt.
Consider thy markings,
And list to our barkings,
Foch still wears a Marecha1's belt.

REVERIES OF A "CHRONIC"
Dedicated to the Perpetual "Chronic," the man
who wishes "he was home and Pa was here."
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. CInstructor announces class
wont be able to shoot for record account lack of time.j Why in H-- do we
shoot at all then. Why don't we shoot all the time instead of fooling away so
much time with conferences and lectures that I don't pay any attention to.
joined the squad. Squad getting up a bet for High Man. No I won't
come in. Don't believe in gambling anyway. Don't think we should Waste
time shooting. Ilm on the last order, wake me up when my turn comes.
12 NOON-I am waked up in a very dangerous manner: Some fool
placed a lighted newspaper beside me and I waked up amid a roar of laughter.
Pulled down again by weight of various and sundry articles such as ammuni-
tion boxes, logs, tin cans, etc., that have been tied to my belt. I have been

and get those birds.

Only three hours more. 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.

interested in who runs the United States anyway. They dOI'1,t increase my pay

do some fool thing or other that I don't give a --- about. Well, good
night, I'm going home and frame up a letter that will tell 'em what I think
about that "C" they gave me. They can't get away with that.

GENERAL SITUATION CDARK BLUEJ
The weather is Hot and Cold. The schedule for EQUITATION: calls
for UNIFORM-Coats and Caps. An order amending the Schedule is being
posted on the Bulletin Board. AMENDED SCHEDULE states that Shirts
and Hats will be worn.
SPECIAL SITUATION. QDARKER BLUEJ
A Grape-vine Rumor has just circulated through the usual channels to
the effect that Shirts and Hats are not to be Worn, and that an order rescind-
ing the AMENDMENT is being signed by the Secretary.
The time is 12:55 P. M.
You are MAJOR MAD.
REQUIRED :f An Estimate of the Situation. Map Equipment X may or may
not be used.
QApproved by Lt. Colonels Le Flunk and Blabsomej
Mission: To attend EQUITATION wearing the prescribed Uniform.
STRENGTH AND COMPOSITION: The Enemy consists of all Instructors
in Equitation, the Second in Command, and his Aides.
LOCATION-DISTRIBUTION AND MOVEMENTS:
Wheeler-at the Corral, petting the polo plugs.
Lambert and Martin-In the club casting a fishy eye in the general
direction of Kincade, who has just doubled "No Trumps," and shows no
concern over the fact the first Whistle has blown:
Chamberlaine-Somewhere along the road, trying to flag a ride in a
student's car. QStudent ignores the flag and steps on the gas.j
PHYSICAL CONDITION-MORALE, ETC.:
Physical condition of the enemy not so good. 25 percent cowhocked,
75 percent over-in-the-knees.
TRAINING-Riley. Nuf sed.

Equipment-Aside from the Instructors' Mounts, the worst conglomera-

horse-flesh ever gathered together under one management. Also a bunch of
War-purchased French saddles that must be worn out before good ones can
judged by the Instructors' verbal observations, all enerny's observations
Active, and in addition to the first look it must be borne in mind that
they also have the last look.
TIME AND SPACE:
Time-Any day between one and four.
Space--The wide, wide, world.
Especially adapted to operations of the enemy. It presents every known
obstacle from four foot jumps over barbed-wire to a 100 foot, 45 percent
slide near the Scatterhootchie River.

Temperature-either 10 degrees F or 80 degrees F, It never varies be-

Visibility-Low, except from the Cripples' Bench.
LINES OF ACTION OPEN TO THE ENEMY:
1. Call off the ride.
2. Have a lecture on Cavalry Gates.
3. Prescribe a Drag Hunt.
4. Equitate as per Schedule.
One guess is as good as another provided you guess No. 4.
OUR OWN FORCE.
STRENGTH AND COMPOSITION:
Strength-weak, and getting weaker week by week.
Composition-One class divided into two groups.

Qbj Those who know it.
LOCATION AND' DISTRIBUTION:
Location-Post Office address Fort Benning.
Distribution-All over the place. High and Wide.
PHYSICAL CONDITION-MORALE, ETC.
Horrible. To judge from personal reports our force is composed of a
bunch of decrepit, superannuated, physical wrecks, most of whom have been
incapaciated for the past forty years.
From 1:00 P. M. to 4:00 P. M. not one will admit being under 70 years
of age, and each member of the class is either in the hands of a medical
advisory board or trying to get there. The Osteopath in Columbus reports
that business was never better.

LINES OF ACTION OPEN TO US:
1. To get policed, limp painfully during school hours only, and on the
strength of our ability to mislead the enemy, get excused from equitation.
2. To ride as per schedule.
Consideration of Plan No. 1, advantages and disadvantages. Should
We decide on Plan No. 1 we might deadbeat Equitation for several days,
BUT-we would probably have to make up the lost time on Wednesday and
Saturday afternoons and that would conflict with Infantry Association Meet-
ings, Vaccination, Finger-printing, and other Holiday Sports.
Consideration of Plan No. 2. Advantages and disadvantages. Should
we decide on plan No. 2 we might learn how to mount a horse from the near
side with the right foot in the stirrup-a decided advantage to a Doughboy
Field Officer. The disadvantages are too numerous to mention.
To report at the Infantry Stables about ten minutes after assembly, as
usual. Uniform, underwear, if any, or in the altogether. Uniform A under
the right arm, uniform B under the left arm, and uniform C in the automobile.

'Y 1 Q-f
One day the Cheef of Infantry saw a Colonel of the fighten foot looking
anxiously towards the seat of his breeches, which he couldn't see because he
had them on. 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
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.

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

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-

much as if the day is not average. 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.

V.: "W-e-l-1-l, it's a long story but-"
M.: Cl-Iurriedly "Wait a minute. If the question can't be answered either
'Yes' or 'No' I'll just mark the answer 'None' and let it go at that."

You may never have another opportunity. You have left all hope behind.

curvature of the spine, your ears don't match, cerebellum is ossified, and one
leg is shorter than the other."
V.: "Any chance to get IC'd?"
M.: "Nothing doing. The Army is short-handed now. Beat it."
Medico: "What seems to be the nature of your trouble?"
Victim: "I dunno, but I think it's high blood pressure."
M.: "I guess you've got the right dope: it's 198."
V.: "Is it likely to prove fatal?"
M.: "Hardly, That condition accompanies prohibition. If you don't die in

M.: "Never mind that. It won't cost you anything-much. To delay will
prove disastrous. You have high blood pressure and are liable to drop off

A thing that's stressed throughout the land
Impressed on all from birth,
Is that there's nothing can exceed
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
The Army and the Navy too
Have not been left behind
By leaders in civilian life,
We're glad indeed to find.

The former has a separate branch
QA black sleeve stripe it wearsj
Whose nziygn gngfrg is solely to
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.

We all can call to mind with ease
How we poor woeful wretches,
Attended lectures wearing shirts
And, coated, made our sketches.
With collar tight and chest compressed
Our alidades we lined:
And well we learned when sighting shots
That Sam Browne belts do bind.
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.
One day of lectures all indoors
We surely felt like goats,
For two learned talks were "hats and shirts,"
The balance "caps and coats!"
The changes they rang in on us
QI swear 'tis true, Oh Lordj
Came faster than the clerks could type
And post them on the board.
There was no hope to hold out
To a poor long suffering male
Whose, shifts of clothes would sure have made
A debutante turn pale.
But then at last one suit alone
We wore to graduate,
When all agreed we'd learned While here
One should coordinate.

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
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

Concentrate my wandering faculties on trench and field and moot,
So I wrote and what was written was uncommonly poor
Was unusually rotton and most uncommonly poor
Worse had ne'er been writ before.
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."

Well Ed, this is some course. I gotta rite a monogram, now Ed, on the
Eyetalian Fronts in 1915. Well Ed, I don't kno anything about the Eyetalians
fronts in 1915 or any other year. What should I care about the Eyetalians
fronts, I have enuf truble keeping the soup offen my own, without worryin
none about the fronts of them wops. Well Ed, there is lots of books in the
library which tells about wop fronts and backs so I gess I'll copy some good
stuff an shoot it in. You kno me Ed-clever.
Well Ed, the Maje who gave us the dope on this monogram said we
gotta be Simpathetic and full of Enthosiam for our subject. Well Ed,
I'm pretty Simpathetic over some of them fronts, I gess they is wurse than
yours, I'm full of Enthosiam to Ed, it costs about six dollars a Gal. and I
keep some in the house all the time. I gess even a stingy guy like you Ed
could get Enthoosiastic down here where prices is rite. I'm goin to be some
Enthoosiastic about them fronts Ed. You kno me-Enthoosiastick 90'i,
Well Ed, a lotta guys has already given their monograrns. Some guys
think its a swell chance to pull sum bum whit Ed, but not me, serious but
enthoosiastick, that's me eh?
Some of these bum jokers has got their marks Ed, along with a lotta
sirnpathy from their teacher. The teacher is very Enthoosiastick when he
marks the paper an simpathetic when .he tells you how bum you are. Well
chere up Ed, he won't have to tell-you, he can see it if his eyes ain't bum.
Well Ed, what with monograms an all I'm pretty busy. I gotta do
some Work for the guy who helps the Commandment Ed. The fellas call
him the Vyking which don't sound sensible to me, Ed. Anyhow he's pretty
important around here an he wants me to do some extra work for him Wed.
afternoon next. I hate to give up my afternoon off Ed, but I gess I'll have
to akomodate him-you kno rne Ed, obligin eh?
I gess he'd 'never knon I was here if he hadn't of spied me strollin into
class only one half hour late. He seen what a good man I was and tole me
I was to make a study of the animule transportation of this Post. Well Ed,

Well Ed I suppose I might as well start the Noo Year off rite so I'm
going to rite to you Ed, not that I can help you any Ed-what you need is
this coarse here Ed. You'd stop beefin about how good you were in La Bell
France Ed if you had to take this coarse.
Well, jan. lst came around brite and early here Ed with the same old
Army stuff. Onct a year the General Stab has tu prove that animuls
and men sleep best in the morning so on Noo Years they have the band
come out and play all the peaces they don't kno real well at about 4:30 A. M.
I don't kno about the men Ed but these tooters woke up all the anirnules
which is mostly dogs in Block 23. Well the band played Happy Noo Year
for a one half hour Ed, and then our noblest friend the Kaynine talked it over
so I got up an made my first Noo Year Resolution, Ed, which was to kill one
large bandsman every Noo Year. Yu'd better keep that ukalaylay out of site
when I'm around Ed. Yu're worse'n a Bandsrnan Ed when you get to

Well, so long Ed for this time.

Well Ed I was glad to get yure letter, after readen it I don't feel so bad
about being down here, ezpecially since the pipes all busted and I don't haf
to take that daily dip, which is more of that old Army stuff. You know me
Ed, me and water is on Official Terms in public. Useful to put on fires, eh
Well Ed, the pipes all frize up and we didn't have no water and the
Missus raised an orful holler. She tried to holler at the Quartermasters but
they wouldn't let her holler in their so she hollered at me. I guess she thot
her hollering would thaw the pipes Qscarcastic Ed that's mej. I guess the
Quarterrnastesr was so busy throwin slate into the cole, Ed, they didn't care
anything about a few busted pipes. They gotta motto Ed which is "Eels nay
parserons Pa" and means it can't be done. Pretty good eh, Ed? Sounds
like you havin a little repartee with the Old Man.
Well Ed, us Stoodents has a lot of work to do listenin to the instructors
talks so I gess I'll have to stop now.

Hail! thrice hail! the doughboy,
He who takes and holds positions
In the world's catastrophes,
Leading the way where others follow,
Facing fire and fusilade.
Superman in time of strife,
Marvel of courage and self sacrificeg
Hail! the soldier, and the man-
Magnanimous, courageous doughboy.
Since time medieval-he it was,
Marching as foot soldier of theCross,
Following where'er the Knights did lead
To victory-or destruction
Too soon forgotten is the sacrifice made-
By all living and silent heroes,
When the canon's roar-and firing cease-
Should sympathly wane in time of Peace?
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

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

organized: with a mighty strength of purpose it courageously battles on,
contesting stubbornly any attempts by its enemies to discredit or disband it
by force or propaganda. 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-

QApologies to G. and SJ
Oh, a Captain of Infantry on the parade
Cried, "Huh-ha, ha-huh-huh, huh-ha-ha,
And I said to him, "Captain, why serenade,
Singing, huh-ha, ha-huh-huh, huh-ha-ha
Are you paging a contour, Captain, old goop,
Or an 'A' you have gotten in Snoopin' and Poop?"
But he paid no attention, continued to whoop,
"Ding-dong-dong, Hong-Kong-Kong, Huh-ha-h
As he drew in his stomach he sounded out loud,
Yelling "Huh-ha, ha-huh-huh, huh-ha-ha."
And he acted like someone addressing a crowd,
"Oh, Huh-ha, ha-huh-huh, huh-ha-ha."
Then he threw out his chest and a gurgle he gave
While the folds of his diaphragm wouldn't behave,
As I left him alone he went on with his rave,
"As-you-WERE, ding-dong-dong, huh-ha-ha."

-me p any of the rest, unless it be that he is a resident of some of the
VAL? other cities honoring the explorer. 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
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,

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
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

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
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
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.

Uncle Sam has established the greatest school of arms in the world. 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-

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."
