SEVENTH CORPS AREA
Office of the C. M. T. C. Officer.
Omaha, Neb., May 11, 1925: The
United States Government will con
duct three Citizens’ Military Training
Camps in the Seventh Corps Area
from August 1 to 30, 1925. Young
men between the ages of 17 and 31
are eligible to attend these camps.
Only men of the highest moral char
acter will be accepted.
While these camps are called
Citizens’ Military Training Camps,
the military feature is not by any
means the chief end sought—but is
simply a means to an end. The ob
ject of the camps is to bring to
gether young men from all parts of
the country on a common basis of
equality, and by outdoor life and
military training combined with ex
pert athletic coaching, to develop
young men physically, mentally and
morally and by teaching them sound
American principles make of them
better American citizens.
No father or mother need fear that
any attempt will be made to teach
their sons militarism, for it is a fact
that officers of the Army of the
United States are more opposed to
war and militarism than any body of
men in this country.
While at the camps the morals of
the young men are guarded to the
limit of human possibility. Clean,
wholesome, healthy amusements and
sports are provided. Hostesses and

Further research disclosed that Mr.
Timlin was wintering a large flock

MANY motorists pour in an
other quart of oil whenever
the oil level gets a little low
and consider that they are giving their
motor protective lubrication. They
are mistaken. After oil has been in
the crankcase during a run of 500
miles or more, it is diluted thin with
gasoline and contains a good deal of
road dust and carbon. It is a pretty
good grinding mixture.
Running with this kind of oil is the
