Panama canal with the co-operation of the army and air forces. In picture at left Charles Kiefer keeps a

vigilantly scans sea and sky for the approach of enemy forces. Below: The fast traveling 77-footers of the

Horse Finds Place in U. S. War Effort
The horse is not yet “through,” as far as war is concerned, his value having been demonstrated this
winter on the Russian front. These pictures show two phases of cavalry action in a day’s training of the cav
alry soldiers stationed at Fort Bliss, Texas. Above, the horse artillery is awaiting the command to move
forward to their gun positions. Below, men are demonstrating the speed at which they ride their horses.
All Ready to Dynamite Bridge and Japs
This photograph was taken somewhere in the embattled Philippine
Islands. It shows Filipino soldiers who are determined to see that the
bridge is completely destroyed, if necessary. The soldier in the fore
ground is distributing sticks of dynamite to be placed all over the bridge
to play havoc with Jap troops, if and when they come.

A Welcome Word from Home for A.E.F.
Mail time in any camp is a big time to the soldiers in Uncle Sam’s
army because it brings word from the loved ones back home, and lifts
one out of army life for a brief few minutes. These U. S. soldiers, who
are settling down to camp life in their new environment, are pictured
receiving their mail somewhere in Northern Ireland.
Australia Looks Aloft These Days

posts like this one outside Melbourne are springing up everywhere.
