FOURTH ADD FIFTH
Army Mustering Officer Says
No Use Enlisting Now for
' ' New Regiment.
GUARD OFFICERS SKILLED
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Mobilization Camp, Lincoln, July 1.
(Special.) According to Captain
Tupes, the U. S. army officer who
lias had charge of mustering in the
Nebraska National Guard with other
officers representing the war depart
ment, recruiting of men to fill up the
regiments will go on briskly and must
be pushed as fast as possible.
The two regiments need men and
they do not expect to stop at the sixty-five
mark. Other states have
shown good progress and there is no
reason why Nebraska should mar the
record made in the days of '61 and
in 1898, of which the state has always
been proud. According to official
authority, there is no possible chance
Jr a third regiment to get into tne
service until after the other two have
all the men they need. It is possible
also that a third regiment may not
be needed at all and the men who
have been busily engaged in recruit
ing for that regiment can show no
greater service to the state than to
turn over the men recruited to the
l'ourth and Fifth regiments.
Present Officers Skilled.
The impression given out that a
regiment commanded by men who
saw service in the Philippines would
give better service and that the men
be cared for better is to be com
mended if such were a fact. Most of
these men, however, have not con
linued in military experience and at
present are out of touch with modern
military conditions. The men who
command the Fourth and Fifth regi
ments, also served in the Spanish
American war and in addition have
kept in touch by service in the guard
since that time.
Records of the Men.
Colonel Eberly saw service in the
Philippines and lias been connected
continuously ill some way or other
with the government service.
Colonel Paul saw service in the Sec
ond Nebraska and has since been con-
tantly connected with the Nebraska
uard like Colonel tberly.
Lieutenant Colonel Baehr was a
member of the First Nebraska in the
Philippines and has continued in
touch with military affairs.
Major I. S. Johnson belonged to
the Third United States cavalry.
Major Robert G. Douglas saw serv
ice in the Philippines. '
Served with Funston.

Twentieth Kansas commanded by
Captain Frederick A. Abbott of
Blair served two enlistments in the
Captain George H. Holdeman of
York was captain of his company in
Captain Herbert H. Smith of Fre
mont was a surgeon in the regular
army for six years.

Lieutenant W. A. Ball of Omaha
was in the First Nebraska in the
Lieutenant Jerome A. Lillie of
Omaha, adjutant, was also in the
Captain Fred Thornburg was a
member of the First regimental band
in the Philippines.
Lieutenant Kenworthy of North
Platte lived in Mexico several years.
Lived in Mexico.
Captain A. A. Clements of Ord also
lived in Mexico for some time. And
so, all along the line, can he found
men in these regiments qualified by
experience to command men and take
care of them.
There is no intention on the part
of those bending every energy to put
the Nebraska regiments up to the
standard to reflect upon other men
who are mustering men into the serv
ice of the state, but what is needed
just now is a patriotic get-together

If the Tank holds, say, 20 Gallons,

that FIVE of these Gallons are consumed, not

Of the $6.00 you pay for 20 Gallons, 25,
(or $1.50), is practically poured over your Tires,
instead of into your Tank, WASTED!
