Last week we put in most of the
tlm drilling. On Wednesday night,

for conic oir when the company lined
up and nn.su eied roll call and then
marched over to the headquarters
building whole we received our first
money fiom Uncle Sam. On Thurs
day afternoon wo matched in early
and assembled over at u barrack where
our battalion listened to a patriotic
address by Captain Sims. The object
of the meeting was to get the boys
enthused in buying liberty bonds in
stead of spending their money foolish
ly. During the past two weeks the
boys in our company haVe taken over
15,000 woith of liberty bonds. They
have the privilege of paying $10 a
month on a bond instead of paying it
all at once.

People who come here to visit their
sons or friends now have to get a pass
in order to visit the camp. Last Sat
urday afternoon several of the pri
vates in this company were taken over
to the hospital and given their third
shot in the arm. On Monday evening
wc had "shott arm" inspection and
the dentist looked over our teeth and
wo did not hae to turn out for re
treat. Several tliousand men from
hete have been shipped to Camp Cody,
Doming, New Mexico, for training.
We spent most of the week at skir
mish and extended order drill, also
had platoon and company drill. On
Thursday afternoon before goingout
to drill this battallion listened to a
patriotic speech by a Captain in this
battallion. On Saturday morning wc

but owing to the fact that it rained a
little we had company inspection in
stead and also spent a short time at
rifle aiming and oidcrs of sentinels,
