The war correspondent for tho Dally
Nebraskan wired In a largo amount
of news this morning from Camp
Avery, which tells us that the war Is
coming as nicely as can be expected,
and that most of tho soldiers have
hore feet from the long marches.
However, everyone seems to be In a
good humor, and the usual number of
odd pranks are being played. Tho
following Is from our correspondent:
"The first and second days of camp
passed without any serious hitch.
There was a ten mile hike tho first
morning and a five-mile hike Tuesday
afternoon. This has caused tho Blck
tent to become overflowed with appli
cants for a long, long rest Wednes
day morning the number that went on
tho hike was diminished because of
so many of the troopB having soro
"Chancellor Avery, Coach Stielim
and Principal Hunter visited the en
campment Tuesday. The chancellor
was game to take the hike in the after
noon. However, because of his pres
ence, the hike was made less severo
than the one the day before.
"The location of the camp is In a
beautiful park about a half a mile out
of Crete The tents, In a long regi
mental street, grace the slope of a
hill, while at the foot there is plenty
of acreage for battalion and regiment
al drill. A wire fenco and tho Blue
river aid the guards In catching 'strag
glers' running tho lines."
Tho following meBBage camo sizzl
ing over tho busy wires shortly bo
fore we went to preBB. It Is of sur
prising importance, and we feel that
it cannot be left without mention:
"Lieutenant A. H. DiiiBinoro was
caught taking a package of cigarette
paperB from the tent of Sergoaait Mor
rison last night. He is now being caro
fully watched to see that he does not
smuggle hi any matches."
Visitors who have returned from
Camp Avery Bay that many field
events are being held on the drill
grounds, also many baseball games.
Of the latter, we learn that tho most
famous was a game that -waB to como
off between Co. "D" and the band, but
because of the strict discipline it had
to be postponed, after everything was
made ready, in order that a court mar
tial could bo held. It Booms that somo
of the players wore alleged to havo
been guilty of criminal offences, to
which charges they had to answer.
Wo also learn that several battles
have been fought. The most famous
of thoBo battles will go down in his
tory aB the "Battle of the Blue River."
Each year there is always a famouB
battle fought, but according to all re
ports, this one was the most stirring
thathas yet taken place. When one
takes into consideration tho wonderful
bombardment of Camp Worklzer last
summer, when some unknown parties
tried to blow up the camp, It can well
be Been that anything to beat that
siege would have to be a good one.
