U. S. GUARDS IN

American Training Camp in France,
Dec. 1. A large number of Amer
ican National Guardsmen today began
practice with automatic rifles on tar
get ranges, erected at various points.
Some excellent shooting was done,
the men showing by their perfect fa
maliarity with the operation of the
rifles the value of the instruction on
their mechanism which they have re
ceived at the schools during the last
Some of the newly arrived units
from the eastern and western states
were introduced to the shrapnel hel
met. They are being hiked over long
distances in order that they may get
used to the weight and peculiar fit of
this headgear. In many cases the in
struction of companies is being car
ried out by noncommissioned officers,
the commissioned officers having been
sent to various schools and also along
the lines of communication.
The National Guardsmen are show
ing especial interest in the tanks.
Many men in at least one contingent
have applied for tank duty and it is
probable that many of them will be
transferred to the tank section at the
trip, as guests of Mr. Kernes, who
was also a member of the party.
The men brought back weird tales
of jackratbits bigger than Scotch col
lies, squirrels that they tried to kill
with a locked gun, and of the brilliant
rescue of Mr. Kernes, who plunged
into a nearby creek. x
