(, Second infantry, the two Omaha com
parties ot the Is'ebraeka National Guard
which Brigadier General 8torch of the
Guard says ought to be mustered out of
the service, are the two oldeet companies
In the state's militia. Both hare seen war
service, both have. In their time, ranked
the highest In the state, and both hare
taken prises at national tournaments.
The recommendation of the brigadier
general that the two companies be 'mus
tered out of the service came as a
"thunderbolt . from a clear' sky," at the
officers or men of the eompanlea claim
they did not know anything was the matter.
Captain Bterrtcker of O Bays he knew
Company L was to be mustered out, but
that he had no idea hla own company waa

Colonel A. D. Fetterman, Inspector gen

the enrollment In the two eompanlea Is
not even up to the minimum. The mini
mum Is forty-five and the maximum Is
sixty-five, but the persistent demands of
local fraternal Insurance companies for
well drilled men has cut down the stse
of the military companies. Also It has
been hard to keep the men together when
ever-lnereaslng rent hava forced them to
take unsuitable rooms for armories.
Captain Bterrtcker talked to Adjutant
General Hardlgao over the long-distance
telephone and the adjutant general told
him the whole trouble waa that the en

for the support of amall eompanlea.
" 'Get your enrollment up to the mini

will be all right.' the adjutant general
told me," said Captain Bterrlcker.
'There are not a half dosen companies
