The annual competitive drills of the University Cadets took
place June 14th and 15th. On Monday afternoon gun detach

and the silver individual medals. The artillery judges were
Atty Gen. Wm. Lccsc, J. D. Calhoun, and Maj. W. II. Pow
ell U. S. A. The guidon was awarded to Co. B detachment,
first prize individual, Everett Huling, Co. A, second C. Wal
ters. The infantry drill 1 ucsuay morning resulted in the win
ning of the flag by Co. A, first prize, a gold medal, C. P. Wal
tcrs, Co. A, second, P. S. Hcfileman, Co. B. Capt. Smith,
Co. A, received the sword and belt for largest and best equip
ped company during the year. The percentages given by the
udges were higher than last year, thus showing a greater effi
c iency. The drill all through was a close one, and though
Co. seems to have carried off the majority of the honors,
that is no indication that Go. B is deficient in drill. These
drills instituted by Lieut. Dudley have been a great success,
and will work only for the good of the battalion.
